Irwin Passive Lock Bar Clamp

Irwin Passive Lock Bar Clamp

02-04-2013 12:00 AM by Purrmaster | 6 comments »

I picked this up at Home Depot a couple of months ago. I hadn’t seen a passive lock clamp before but it was beefy and I wanted something strong. It was designated as a “heavy duty” clamp. This thing is great. It really is heavy duty. The steel bar is the thickest I’ve seen on a bar clamp and hand screw is beefy too. I’ve put a ridiculous amount of clamping pressure onto this thing. The bars on all my other bar clamps have deformed because of excessive ...

You Get What You Paid For

Sorry to say that this little sander only gets a two star rating. I have had this sander less than a year and the bearing under the sanding plate has froze. It had such potential. ConsThe loading of sandpaper is not that great. But once you get the paper aligned and under the holders its OK. Loud Dust control not great and shop vac couldn’t be connected to the port. The sander has been used maybe 6 times. The past two days it was being used to sand the planter boxes and benc...

Very nice saw for the price

Very nice saw for the price

02-04-2011 03:03 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

This is a well made, low cost handsaw that I use for cutting joinery. I think it was a little over $30 at Woodcraft. The handle is beech and the top is brass, the blade is rigid and very sharp. I am new to the world of handsaws other than the ripsaws sold at the big box stores so this was a big step up for me. I think this brand is worth looking into for future purchases.

Almost Perfect

This is a really preliminary review on this plane. I haven’t gotten a ton of time with it but I’ve taken a few passes with it just to try things out. I’ve been wanting a No 7 for quite a while and I’ve been on the hunt at every antique store I drive by and on Craigslist. I know you can get one on eBay but I’ve been screwed over in the past there so I’m pretty leery of buying on there. I also just for the heck of it threw this Lie-Nielson on my amazon wish l...

But seriously, review of a tape?

But seriously, review of a tape?

Yes, If you, like me, had your share of problems with the right hand table saw scale then this review makes sense. Otherwise, you can skip it.Anyheaux, So the Ridgid 3660 TS right hand scale has been a problem since the day I got it. It was placed/taped in a wrong location. So I ordered an original scale and that one stayed on for two weeks and it started to peal off.The rail was cleaned completely before applying the strip. Maybe too hot in Houston. Not sure. But it was extremely difficult ...

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

I don’t know about you but I use screwdrivers allot around the shop. The problem is that there are so many different type and size of screws that I need several on hand at all time. They inevitably fall on the floor roll under the bench or simply disappear or blend in the mess on the bench top. Over the years I have bought several “multi “screwdrivers and they pretty much all were garbage. Now this one I must say is the “best screwdriver I have ever owned and will never buy an...

Blast gate problems

Blast gate problems

03-10-2013 08:05 PM by bear2 | 8 comments »

I recently purchased two 2 ½ inch blast gates from Rockler so that I could split my tablesaw from my floor vacuum. After installation I found that with one gate opened and one gate closed my vacuuming power was reduced by more than half. The gates leaked significantly in either the closed or opened position and rendered the system useless.For a small system the small gates are of little value, for a larger more powerful system larger gates may work.
