when i first used my new festool saw i didn’t really realize it’s full potential but after 7 years of heavy use i have made very difficult cuts that would require jigs and or special table saw setups and router setups a thing of the past.i have made very long compound angle cuts upside down,vertical and horizontal,stack cut whole bundles of exotic veneers and stitch them up with no blow out and with perfect seams. the plunge feature and its stop give you the ability to cut out sla...

An awesome saw

An awesome saw

01-21-2010 11:18 AM by funchuck | 10 comments »

I don’t like to give 5 stars, but I think this really deserves it. I bought this saw a little over 3 years ago. This is the first “good” tool I bought. It is responsible for starting my spiral into buying higher end tools. Before this tool, I bought mostly B&D and $100 stationary/bench tools. This cordless saw is so handy. I use it all the time. It cuts very straight and the case includes a place to store your extra blades. I’ve used it to cut sheet goods...

Want to make a plane or learn how to use one?

This is a very comprehensive book that shows how to make a Krenov style handplane and a lot more. The book is very clear and easy to read. It provides a lot of information on how planes work, sharpening, handplane use, how to use hand tools in general and also information on plane related accessories such as shooting boards. You have all of the information you need to create a handplane. The instructions are very clear and you should have all of the information you need to create one....

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

10-18-2011 05:05 PM by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

This book review is from the October 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Gary Roberts (Toolemera.com) is donating a book for a free draw! (See below for details) Woodwork Joints by William Fairham 1920 1920, you say? Yes, oh yes. I have a wee bit of an addiction to books and to have in my hands wisdom that was written almost a century ago is better than having some Swiss chocolate for a treat. The sub-title of the book found on the inside pages does a great job of describing the ...

Porter Cable 690LR "Ouch"

Porter Cable 690LR "Ouch"

11-23-2014 11:47 PM by captferd | 11 comments »

Been using Porter Cable routers Since mid 80’s. Cant wear them out. Well at least not till now. I was setting the adjustments on my plunge router when the handle suddenly just broke. My thumb got a pretty good slice in the process. Luckily it wasn’t running at the time, that could have been disastrous. My advise to anyone that has one of these routers with the hard plastic handles would be to replace them. I had some rubber ones from another base that fit. I’m not sure if ag...

csc 2000 from psi

csc 2000 from psi

06-07-2011 05:26 AM by paplou | 0 comments »

I have had my csc2000 chuck for over a month now and its way more then I expected for the price. I have turned a few bowls and a couple 11 inch plates plus a few baby rattles and have had zero problems with it. I bought it through Amazon and saved a few dollars. I recently bought the spindle drive for it and only tried it a few times but it work like it should, saves time in that I don’t have to remove the chuck to turn between centers. I have it mount on cheap craftsman lathe and al...

Rockler's Concealed Hinge

Rockler's Concealed Hinge

03-13-2011 07:06 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I purchased some of these so that I could finish my upper shop cabinets. The hinges didn’t come with installation instruction but an email to Rockler’s Tech Support got me a PDF of “installation instructions” in about 2 days. The instructions are vague but there was enough information so that I could suss out how to install them. They really don’t tell you the set back for the hinges and where to pre-drill so I installed a set into some scrap to get the correc...

Ryobi Right-Angle Drill

Ryobi Right-Angle Drill

11-24-2008 08:07 PM by ferstler | 0 comments »

I used this drill in conjunction with a Ridgid right-angle impact driver (also reviewed previously) to install some crown moldings on kitchen cabinets that I installed some years back. My wife and an interior designer she hired made the suggestion and I always follow my wife’s suggestions. The drill was used to help secure hidden backer boards to the cabinet top edges. I had already attached the backers to the moldings out in my workshop. The Ryobi unit worked just fine in that tight...

This book review is from the February 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera (Gary Roberts) is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodwork Tools and how to use them This book, another one by William Fairham, is, in my opinion, another great book for woodworkers interested in learning all about hand tools, although there is some information about power tools in the book. Information includes the parts of the tools, how to use the tool, when to use the...
