Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Pencils are one of those humble things in the shop, used constantly, abused, cursed, misplaced, and achieve no recognition. Bet they feel unloved. Well I have been using Pentel automatic pencils for probably 20 years or more. And it came time to replace my aged, goto, automatic pencils. They had been dropped once to many times on the concrete floor. There was one or two generations of the Pentels between my old beaters, and the new fangled ones I just bought. But nothing was very exciting ...

Does the job

Does the job

12-30-2010 02:04 AM by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

I received one of these for Christmas and as simple as it is it does the trick. I installed it where they suggested, drilling a small pilot hole first then screwing it into the blade guide. It does a good job cleaning the tire and seems to be well made and should last a long time. i really like Carter band saw accessories. I give it 5 stars..

Great plate and easy to install

Great plate and easy to install

08-05-2010 04:20 PM by Vrtigo1 | 4 comments »

Let me start by saying that I bought this plate for my first router table, so I don’t have any frame of reference for comparing it to other products. With that being said, I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the cutout template. The price was right, at about $50 from Amazon. I was a little worried about getting a phenolic plate and the possibility of it warping when I hang my Hitachi M12V from it, but the plate feels very strong and stable. Only time will tell, but I...

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

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...

Good Basic Moisture Meter

Good Basic Moisture Meter

12-01-2015 08:17 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Some tools have flashy features or noteworthy upgrades. This is not it. This is a very basic moisture meter that is accurate. Most of the app-based moisture meters seem to have questionable (or laughable) accuracy. If you set the meter for 2 or 3, based on wood type, and insert the probes you will see the lights come on. Wait a second and you get a reading… say 6.8. Then probe the same board in a couple more spots and it will read within 0.2 of the other readings. This is more...

Might as well have taken €20 and flushed it down the toilet.

This is the last nail in B&D’s coffin where I’m concerned. I saw this set in my local hardware store and thought it would be a handy thing to have in the van – you know, just in case.I managed to bore three holes before the first drill bit snapped in half. The driver bits are good for about a dozen screws before they round off at the tip. The drill bits that don’t snap are very poor quality – it’s almost as if the tips are ground off centre, they want t...

A Must Have for Afficianatos

A Must Have for Afficianatos

12-03-2009 10:15 PM by DannyBoy | 5 comments »

After reading the article (for the fourth time) “A Joiner’s Tool Chest” by Roy Underhill I had toolboxes and tool chests on my mind. So, when I was looking through the tool books at the library last night and happened across this book, I quickly snatched it up and glanced through it. Well, my wife had to remind me that the library hours were closing in and we needed to go because from the start I was engrossed! This is a great book. Especially, if you have any love of ...

Crescent Brand Slide Adjustable Wrench

Crescent Brand Slide Adjustable Wrench

05-12-2011 07:06 AM by David Grimes | 3 comments »

Yes, we are wood workers. But, we all have tools to assemble and maintain our woodworking tools. I came across this recently and (being a tool and gizmo junky) decided to give it a try. It works great at doing what it is supposed to do, but the speed is the real plus since you place it over the nut (or whatever) and just immediately have a perfect fit. It’s heavy and name brand, so i expect i’ll have it as long as I can keep track of it. I gave it four stars because I wish ...
