I picked up this blade about 4 months ago while in the middle of a remodeling project. I have the el cheapo 12” sliding miter saw from HF and I still had the original blade on it that came with the saw, which is absolute junk. I had not really cut much on it and it was so dull that it was burning through things more than it was cutting! I could get it through a modern 2×4 with some effort but it was getting ridiculously dangerous to cut anything on it. The wall we were cutting ...

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...

Looks good so far

I’m giving this five stars for now with the disclaimer that I’ve only used it for a short while on one day so far. I will update this if any problems arise. I see some of the issues with the older models, but the Airshield Pro seems to have corrected some of those. For example it is very light. I saw some complaints on the older one being heavy. They also say the current battery will run all day but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know. Here’s why I b...

this review was first posted in our LJ eMag, January 2010 Have you been inspired by the carvers’ projects here at LumberJocks.com, such as the work by Jordan, Mikelknot, and Mark Decou , to name a few?

I got the larger set of handles for a #7 in walnut. Without a doubt my favorite handles; I’ve purchased other custom sets, NOS, etc. The extra width just makes them feel right for my hands, and the quality is impeccable. You will not be disappointed.

Bought this a while back used it to scribe my miter bench top to the wall and it worked so much better than the compass that I used on my first attempt.

Don't Bother

Don't Bother

I am usually a big fan of Harbor Freight and have gotten a lot of good stuff there. But these sanding discs are truly atrocious. Using a random orbital sander, it took about 2 minutes to wear the grit away. On softwood construction lumber. After sanding an area about 10 inches wide by 48 inches long (just one side) the grit was worn completely away. I don’t know whether the grit doesn’t adhere well or if there is simply not enough grit. Please note: I have only used the...

Mouldings In Practice By Matthew Bickford

Mouldings In Practice By Matthew Bickford

I am happy to share this new book on the subject of moulding planes. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Considering how I have not found another book that covers this subject, it is the modern go to book on the subject of moulding planes. I started investigating moulding planes several years ago and made a couple of my own to use in my case work so I can appreciate the usefulness of these remarkably simple yet highly sophisticated planes. At first glance these planes seem quite m...
