Good Value, Serves its Purpose

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

11-09-2011 03:50 AM by Kelen | 4 comments »

I’ve probably waited much longer than I should have to purchase a featherboard setup for my table saw. Reading more into the magnetic featherboards and some of their reviews, I knew this would be the most versatile option instead of those that function using the miter track. I stumbled upon the Ridgid one online and read many positive reviews about it. The price point was also attractive relative to other brands that were selling for $50+ for what seemed to be the same basic concept....

Grip Tite Guide/Magnetic Featherboard

Grip Tite Guide/Magnetic Featherboard

10-05-2014 10:50 PM by HillbillyShooter | 9 comments »

Earlier, I posted my Auxiliary TS/Router Fence and Feather Board Rail system ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/106533 ), but it doesn’t do anything for my joiner. So, I purchased the Grip Tite Guide, which has a magnetic base, to try with some thin strips of 5/16” White Oak molding I cut with my Magic Molder and trimmed to size, leaving a rough bottom. These actually work very well and permit use both vertically on the joiner beds and horizontally on the joiner fence. Two are required, o...

Wooden Boxes by Dennis Zongker

Wooden Boxes by Dennis Zongker

03-04-2014 08:25 PM by BritBoxmaker | 3 comments »

A nicely varied choice of boxes, with a thorough and detailed explanation of construction techniques and excellent presentation make this one of those best buys amongst books on the subject of boxmaking. Easy to follow and not in the slightest verbose. You could do worse than treat it as a reference book for the many useful techniques it describes. Pound for pound it is one of the most valuable books on box making in my collection. Well done sir.

I just got this book in the mail yesterday after I had found it on amazon while looking for another book. I was able to read the introduction before I ordered and I was already impressed. Sam Sherrill takes an ecological, economic, and just common sense approach to addressing the waste that our society generates by not treating felled trees of our urban forests as assets or inventory but as waste to be thrown away. I haven’t completed reading the book cover to cover yet, (I’m...

A new way to find and track all those thread sizes in the tool shop

A new way to find and track all those thread sizes in the tool shop

01-16-2010 02:33 AM by Bob #2 | 14 comments »

Seems I am always lookng for a nut or bolt for a peice of geat in my shop.Without taking a spare with me to the nut shop I am usually stubbed out with a replacement that’s eighr too big or too small.Now all I have this to fill in the blanks for size and thread. I’ll quaote from the excellent writeup rather than try to polish a pear.“a plate tapped for 10 National Coarse sizes (1-64 to 1/4-20), 10 National Fine sizes (1-72 to 1/4-28) and 8 Metric Coarse sizes from M1.6 to ...

Doesn't Ding Like Cast Iron

Doesn't Ding Like Cast Iron

11-05-2014 08:50 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

I have the HF 34706 lathe (review here: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3720). The tool rest that comes with the lathe is serviceable to get started but became a pita. Mine wasn’t quite level, about an 1/8” difference over its length, and the soft cast iron would ding very easily. The fit of the arm and rest posts into the respective holes were the primary culprit for the misalignment. With the rest mounted directly in the saddle the misalignment was worse due to tapering at the b...

As is often the case with Carba-Tec tools (FYI, Carba-Tec is Australia and New Zealand’s equivalent to Rockler), this is probably some other companies product that has been bought under licence and rebranded (this is common place – my Carba-Tec branded bench top mortiser for example, came with an Axminster user manual). It is none the less an excellent piece of equipment and well worth the NZ$180 that I spent on it.It is very heavy and solidly made, and was bang on accurate right out...

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

I really like these little diamond hones for sharpening carbide router bits. Just a few strokes on the back, flat edge of your bits will restore a sharp edge. Comes with three grits. This can save you money and avoid throwing away dull bits, or worse yet ruining expensive lumber.Worth a try.

6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit

6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit

06-26-2011 04:33 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

An odd find that actually works very well is this 6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit i bought it with the idea to use it as a power chisel. I adaped some wood working chisels to work with this. It is very quiet yet has 3500 BPM and an air consumption of 4 cfm at 90. It is a nice compact unit and fits the hand well. I have used it to remove a great deal of wood that with a chisel and hammer would have taken much more time. Other features are built in regulator to vary the amount of force applied. F...
