Great at first look, but in the long run, not so much

Great at first look, but in the long run, not so much

09-12-2011 03:21 AM by Mike | 7 comments »

So first off let me say that the reason for the rating is due to long term use of the stopper. The stopper use with a turned top is easy to do and assembly is simple too. My reason for the rating is due to the chemical reaction that occurs between the chrome and the wine acid. As you can see by the second image, the chrome is being dissolved into the wine. The way I found this out was that I had a open bottle laying on it’s side in my fridge for a few weeks and I pulled it out to fi...

Foot Savers

Foot Savers

07-26-2011 06:33 AM by coloradoclimber | 8 comments »

My shop space has a concrete floor. I’m ok with the concrete, it is easy to clean and easy to roll my tools around. But it is KILLER on my feet and back. I have flat feet, you know the kind that when you walk barefoot they make a sucking sound when you pick your feet up. The kind that when people see your foot prints in the sand they think the web footed monster from the black lagoon must have strolled by. And because of my feet after any full day in the shop my feet just ache, whi...

Pretty much what I was looking for.

Pretty much what I was looking for.

04-17-2013 03:18 AM by muleskinner | 6 comments »

I wanted to add a foot switch to a scroll saw I just bought. The pedal types seemed better suited to a sitting position (I was thinking sewing machine). I will be standing so I looked for a low profile that had the pivot at the top. I ordered this one ($16.84) and received it yesterday. It’s available in three configurations: switch w/6ft pigtail; switch w/6ft cord and piggyback 15amp/120v plug; switch alone. I ordered the last option because I wanted a little bit longer cord and ...

Great little product

Great little product

03-23-2008 05:33 AM by Woodshopfreak | 5 comments »

This is the jig saw that I got about three years ago. It is a great little saw, and cuts like you wouldn’t belive. There is a few things that I love about this saw, first, the fact that it has dust collection is a big plus in my book. There is a little shroud, if I am saying that correctly that captures a decent amount of dust, and there is a blower on the other side to push it to the shroud. Another cool feature is the quick disconect blade thingy. It is really simple ot change from a ...

Let's get bent!

Had the idea to use a top and bottom toolbox combo as auxiliary tool and supply storage. My thought process concluded the HF item would fit the deal. Then I would add on with using a two drawer “mid” box to increase space. First ordered a Waterloo two drawer unit online. Fedex literally dropped it at my door. My complaints to the seller resulted in a refund of a third of purchase price. Next found the HF box on sale during a parking lot sale for 299.99, but out of stock...

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 ...

I suppose as an actual review, I would say that for the price, it fit my needs. Also, I used a 25% discount coupon to get it. So, really good at the price I paid. Video of the product.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igWpQ9eHs88

The Golden Ratio by Mario Livio

The Golden Ratio by Mario Livio

10-24-2013 05:30 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 20 comments »

This is definitely a 5 star book on the subject. The author leaves no stone un-turned. The book is fascinating, informative, thorough, very interesting and sometimes, a bit boring. The author shows where many of the Golden Ratio enthusiasts take great liberty with the dimensions they use to “prove” their point of view. I highly recommend this book to anyone with any interest in the subject. The author explains things so a layman can understand it. However, a bit of math b...

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

10-01-2010 07:55 PM by Dedvw | 9 comments »

Purchased this drill just over a week ago for a really good price ($88 brand new). Box came with the drill, 2 batteries, flashlight, charger and carrying case. The owners manual was not in the box but this was not really an issue, Ridgid makes it very easy to find the PDF manual on their website. The tool itself appears very well made with a good blend of plastic and metal parts. The weight of the Drill is pretty good (a little lighter then my Makita 14.4V) but is a bit top heavy making it...

Lithonia T8 shop lights

Lithonia T8 shop lights

01-12-2016 04:45 AM by ic3ss | 9 comments »

This is my second attempt at shop lighting. I had picked up an LED fixture a couple of weeks ago but was generally unimpressed with light output and color. My review is here I took it back and ordered three of this fixture at HD, they delivered free to my house if I ordered three. At $22 per I figured I couldn’t go wrong. Well I got the three put up and bought some tubes for them I wanted to experiment a little with the color. All tubes are 2900 lumen at 32 watts. I bought two 5000K ...
