VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

Hell of a name, say it 3 times fast if you can. Hey people, I found these clamps at Lowes and have never seen any like them before. I like spring clamp for quick hold of light objects and I have a whole lot of different sized ones. Check these out, one clamp can hold 2 pieces of 1/8th” or hold a one by onto a saw horse. Package says 2” to 4” but the 2” is maximum without extending the arm LOL Actual usage is 2 pieces of paper up to 4 1/4”. At $4.97 each, I reall...

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 ...

Excellente moulder

Excellente moulder

05-12-2015 02:51 AM by Severiano | 2 comments »

2 months ago, i got my hands in this moulder. i had been looking at it for some time. I’ve looked at W&H and Hollytek moulders as well. it wasn’t untill the sales rep of Logosol Canada gave me a live show of this machine, that made me go for it. it is accurate and it is easy to figure it out ( Shaper user knowledge prerequisite ). i’ve bought mouldings in the past made with multi head big industrial machines, and I’m doing my own mouldings now with the same qualit...

First Re-Saw with this blade

First Re-Saw with this blade

07-23-2013 12:42 AM by Adam | 7 comments »

I had purchased a 1 hp King bandsaw for $80 off Kijiji (Canada’s Craig List) and gage it a complete overhaul and added a 6” riser kit to it. I purchased a Little Ripper Bandsaw blade for $36 from R&D Bandsaws are located in Brampton, Ontario, just 30 min from me. This is my first real experience re-sawing anything substantial with it and it worked very well. This is 12” of hard maple and the surface finish is not the best but that is because I kept on stopping a sta...

It works, and the price is right

It works, and the price is right

01-18-2012 05:29 AM by Vrtigo1 | 19 comments »

Not a whole lot to say about these remote switches. I base my opinion on the functionality and the price, and this one does well in both areas. It’s pretty simple – you plug the base unit into the wall and plug your DC into the base unit, then when you want to turn the DC on or off you press the button on the remote control. Took about 20 seconds to install it, and it worked right away, no settings to mess around with or anything like that. Very handy when you have a smaller...

Loosens wood glue, saved me from my screw up

Loosens wood glue, saved me from my screw up

05-26-2015 01:08 PM by BinghamtonEd | 9 comments »

I was recently working on a small chest, and after doing parts of the glue up around midnight after a long day, I found the next day I had glued the legs on in the wrong orientation. There was a lot of cursing. The legs were joined using 3/4” deep haunched tenons on the top and bottom, with unglued panels in between, using Titebond III. I picked one of these up at the BORG for $39. It has 12 selectable temperatures, which I could see useful for the various applications one would n...

Great dovetail guide!

Great dovetail guide!

03-15-2015 08:29 PM by AESamuel | 3 comments »

I bought one of these magnetic dovetail guides from David Barron after unsuccessfully trying freehand myself and am astounded by the results on my first try using the guide with my budget zona gent’s saw. I ordered the guide by e-mail in the evening, David posted the guide the next day and the day after the guide arrived on my doorstep. It was very well packaged and is solidly built. It even came with spare replacement covers for the magnets and a packet of haribo sweets too! The ...

Good for a Black & Decker

Good for a Black & Decker

01-19-2010 10:39 PM by funchuck | 9 comments »

This was my first real drill. I know Black & Decker gets a lot of knocks here, but it really wasn’t too bad a drill. I’ve had this drill for probably 5 years. I’ve done a lot of home improvements with it. This includes: Installation of a new garage door opener Putting up a patio lattice made of all pressure treated lumber (6×8s, 4×8x, 4×4s, 2×6s) Various wood working projects (mostly shelves and storage). I have used it to drill 3...

An amazing help experience

An amazing help experience

03-28-2015 06:35 PM by andy_P | 2 comments »

This is probably not necessary because I am sure you more experienced and knowledgeable woodworkers have run across this site already. I had a problem with a keyless entry lock that I had purchased from ACE but was unable to find the “Helpful Hardware Man” when I ran into problems setting up the codes. The instructions were written in broken Chinese and even my wife, who knows all, wasn’t able to figure it out. Since the “Helpful Hardware Man” was unable to ...
