Milwaukee 3/8" hammer drill

Milwaukee 3/8" hammer drill

10-03-2013 09:44 PM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is a review, hence it is just my opinion. To the best of knowledge the picture is a true and actual representation of the item I am reviewing. Sorry about the above but others have made these little disclaimers necessary.So onto the drill. Yep, I give it 5 stars after what I just put it through. I just tapped about 30 holes in 1/2” aluminum (7/16” x 14tpi) with this little puppy and it did not flinch one bit. I have had this drill for quite sometime now and have used it for a...

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

03-09-2010 11:16 PM by ErikB | 2 comments »

I’ve owned this router for two or three years and I’ve been very happy with its performance. The controls are easy to use, offers ample power, and there are several accessories available should you need additional features (template guides, straight edge guide, etc.) Plunging the router is simple, and the depth gauge is awesome. The variable speed motor runs well and offers soft start after you pull the trigger (in other words, it goes from zero to 100 gradually, not zero to...

Bye-bye rust!

Bye-bye rust!

08-11-2010 05:49 PM by Bret | 10 comments »

I’m generally skeptical of products that purport to take the place of elbow grease, but I got this bottle of Rust Off in a package at Woodcraft with some Boeshield and blade & bit cleaner. Last night, I realized that I had to put my smoker up for sale before we pack out (in two weeks) and so I needed to de-rust it. I stood there for a while, wire brush in hand and Dremel tool nearby when I remembered that I had this stuff. The instructions say to spray it on rust, allow it to s...

Put them on your short list

This is a review of Chipping Away – http://www.chippingaway.com/ From their site: Chipping Away began operation in 1992 when Pop (Dennis Moor) took an early retirement and decided to keep a few cans of beans in the cupboard by means of selling his carvings. He soon found himself being asked to teach chip carving as well as present seminars at some of the local wood shows. Rogers Public Television asked him to do a television series of 45 individual shows in which he appeared as H...

07-20-2012 08:47 PM by AJswoodshop | 8 comments »

I do alot of sanding I find it fun. But my sandpaper was unorginized. I got the craftsman sandpaper kit and found it very useful. Not only it comes with a cool case for the sandpaper, it even comes with lots of sandpaper! I use this kit every day and very happy with the kit. Highly recomend buying it. It retails for $19.99 but I got it on sale for $9.99. I would give it a 5 star rating! AJ

This is an easy review as I have used this sander for years in cabinet shops but I haven’t got around to buying one for myself. It is one of those tools that you do without but shouldn’t.My wife picked this sander up for my fathers day gift This machine hasn’t changed much in the many years that I have used it witch is a good thing.I like Porter Cable products but not all this sander they got right, right out of the gate.This sander has lots of power,good balance.Loading a n...

Decent Set for occasional use

Decent Set for occasional use

05-08-2013 02:36 PM by Bill1974 | 2 comments »

I have had this set for a couple of years and used maybe a quarter of the bits. Like other have said not the best way to spend money, it’s better to buy individual or small sets of high quality bits. I realized this after buying some freud, whiteside, and amana bits. The case that the bits come in is nice and it hangs on the wall nicely and look impressive. The downside is the bits are a challenge to get out, work gloves and taking the case off the wall are generally necessary. T...

great finishing light

great finishing light

02-01-2013 05:06 PM by shelly_b | 21 comments »

I was at lowes lastnight during one of my weekly shopping trips there and decided i needed a light for my bench. The overhead lights are just not bright enough for detailed work and there are oo many shadows. It is esp hard when i am doing finish. I was just looking for a regular desk lamp when i found this one with some neatextras. It has an outlet on the base and a swivel base wih compartments for “pencils” or whatever wood working tools i want toput in it. Maybe it jas just bee...

1, 2, and 3 inch sanding discs

1, 2, and 3 inch sanding discs

01-29-2013 08:47 PM by RussellAP | 3 comments »

I heard about these here on another post and decided to order some. I cut my own paper and it sticks well however it wears out fast due to the small area. If you press too hard for too long you’ll heat the pad up and the foam will melt. A bit of CA glue will fix it. The sponges under the abrasive are great for hard to get to places that require intense sanding that you couldn’t do with any other tool. I use it on my turnings to get even sanding along the curves and to avo...

Rust Remover & Preserver for South Africans

Rust Remover & Preserver for South Africans

11-22-2009 08:40 AM by PG_Zac | 1 comment »

I can’t speak for it’s wood finishing / polishing properties, but MAN it’s fantastic for removing rust !!!.Here in a very rural area in South Africa, I have no easy access to large stores of any kind, let alone a specialist woodworking store. I’ve never seen Boeshield or the other products many LJ’s use for protecting their machines, I doubt that they are even in the major centers in S.A. I had a problem with rain on my Bandsaw – here is the upper guide...
