Woodpeckers multi knobs- fantastic!

Woodpeckers multi knobs- fantastic!

06-05-2014 02:47 AM by GoBlu | 3 comments »

I’ve used both these styles in various jigs,both the mini and regular multi knobs and cannot say enough good about them. I used to spend hours shopping around to find the right diameter knob with the right size thread and right length and the right type. These are very flexible in that you can use them as a through or studded knob. The minis come only in 1/4”, but the larger knobs come in 1/4”, 3/8” or 5/16” standard hex head bolts or nuts. The minis especially hav...

Maybe I got a bad one, but I'm getting a Grex.  This P-C is a loser

Maybe I got a bad one, but I'm getting a Grex. This P-C is a loser

I bought one of these and have been thoroughly disappointed with it. No matter what the air pressure or length of the pin it only sinks them to flush at best. And of course you can’t adjust the depth. If I sand one bit you get a nice shiny (until it rusts later) little 23 gauge nailhead looking at you. I also do not like the fact that it lacks a soft nose. So if you try and hold it a little tight to get the pin sunk as far as possible you get a dent in the wood that is a lot worse ...

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Up for review is a scaled-down version of the Veritas edge jointing block plane. I recently purchased this miniature as a novelty item but found it to be a very effective tool for small projects. Like the miniature Veritas shoulder plane, this tool is made from investment cast steel. Precisely machined on its sole and integral fence, the plane also features a nicely flattened iron which sharpens easily. On the whole, fit and finish is top notch as it is on all Veritas products. After...

Dewalt 713 miter saw

Dewalt 713 miter saw

06-21-2013 04:37 AM by UncleSnail | 1 comment »

dead nut perfect miters right out of the box. It is shipped with a 40 tooth, thin kerf combination blade. This blade did a better job than my freshly sharped 80 tooth. So I put the Dewalt blade back on. This saw is moderately priced and is very much so worth the bucks. Uncle Snail I realize the picture of the coffee table I built has absolutely nothing to do with the saw review but how interesting can a saw pic be?

Green Wood Craft - Part of the BBC Mastercrafts Series

Green Wood Craft - Part of the BBC Mastercrafts Series

12-15-2014 07:35 AM by Druid | 9 comments »

I’ve been watching a few BBC programs on “old”crafts, and they are really interesting. The first one that caught my attention was on working with green wood, and here’s the link to it (and the others in the series). The “outdoor workshops” and the hand tools are mostly things that we don’t see these days. You might also find the “workshop” construction interesting for outdoor demonstrations such as craft fairs. Each topic is split into 4 ...

What a great idea

What a great idea

http://www.fullpro.com/products-purchase.php The idea behind these safety glasses is simple. Normal glasses, when worn with earmuffs, get uncomfortable (to me anyway). The earmuffs tend to pinch the “arms” of the glasses against the sides of your head. Also, they affect hearing protection, breaking the seal the earmuffs have around your ears. These glasses have straps instead of rigid “arms”. The straps attach to the outside of your earmuffs via adhesive Hook ...

Pretty good for the price!

Pretty good for the price!

So I was tired of my crappy U-frame saw, made of steel tubing, having hacked it as much as I could to improve – that’s a lesser word – the blade locking mechanism. It kept twisting blades on me and they snapped too easily. So I litterally tossed it out and settled to raid eBay, in search for a better saw frame. I had already purchased several times from the Proops Bros, and had noticed they carried a wide array of hardware, all made by themselves in the UK. And so I shell...

Woodworking Skills from the 1800's

Woodworking Skills from the 1800's

11-16-2011 12:01 PM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

This book review is from the November 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art and Craft of Cabinet Making by D. Denning This is another of the historic books, this one being written in 1891. This book doesn’t hold as much appeal to me due to it being a lot of words and fewer diagrams. But—some of the headings listed in the contents had me turning the pages to take a look. For example, don’t ...

Just love Rob's DVDs

Just love Rob's DVDs

03-21-2008 05:41 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 15 comments »

I watch a lot woodworking DVDs and Rob Cosman’s are some of my favorites. If you are just starting out with your dovetail education, I recommend that you start with this DVD first. Rob doesn’t show how to cut dovetails in this DVD, it’s all about the dovetail saw. This DVD if very unique in that regard. There aren’t any other DVDs out there, that I have found, that are dedicated to a topic like the dovetail saw. Rob covers just about everything you need to know about the dovetail saw an...

It Works!! OK, there is more than one line.. It’s a short novel. lol Thanks to this gent on youtube, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amzUACmIKDs), and this good deal on Amazon, (http://www.amazon.com/PSI-Woodworking-LR110-3-110-Volt-Collector/dp/B00004S9AI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422052792&sr=8-1&keywords=long+ranger+III), I finally got it, and I’m happy as a tick on a hound. While at the lathe spinning the ga-zillion pens and such, I used to have to walk over and...
