Green Wood Craft - Part of the BBC Mastercrafts Series

Green Wood Craft - Part of the BBC Mastercrafts Series

12-15-2014 07:35 AM by Druid | 9 comments »

I’ve been watching a few BBC programs on “old”crafts, and they are really interesting. The first one that caught my attention was on working with green wood, and here’s the link to it (and the others in the series). The “outdoor workshops” and the hand tools are mostly things that we don’t see these days. You might also find the “workshop” construction interesting for outdoor demonstrations such as craft fairs. Each topic is split into 4 ...

Unlucky purchase, took it back

Unlucky purchase, took it back

07-05-2016 04:49 AM by Big_T | 15 comments »

Not an expert by any means so you can take my review with a grain of salt. Now in retirement I decided I wanted to build stuff like built-ins for my TV room, interior barn doors, and real wood kitchen cabinets. Just one thing, I’ve never built anything interesting other than subwoofer boxes in college some 30 years ago, and though they sounded great – they weren’t pretty. Fast forward to 2016, I have started buying a variety of tools and decided I needed a decent drill pr...

This nail gun is great!

This nail gun is great!

06-16-2010 05:46 AM by ABrown | 9 comments »

I bought this gun to install 1500 board ft of crown. It’s light weight really helped when useing it over head. It came with two triggers one for “bump” fire and a standard trigger. Portercable has made this gun oilless, which I love. It also has a belt clip which is very handy. Overall this is an excellent gun to own.

Out of box near perfect

Out of box near perfect

12-05-2014 06:11 PM by dozer57 | 8 comments »

Incra 1000hd with no adjustment is near perfect on angles. I am new to segmented turning and my miter fence for my craftsman table saw was junk, Three stops and sloppy fit in the track, never able to repeat angles. I would have to sand each piece to get a fit that I was happy with. NO more ordered Incra 1000hd from Amazon.com took it out of the box and installed it on the table saw with only adjustment made to T-track. First thing noticed was how smooth the track slid in the slot. Miters were...

Always something.

Always something.

Well, it is dead on 100% accurate measured against my super square inside and out. I would give it 5 stars but falls way short in the locking department. Good for saw blades, magnet all around, (like it’s little square brother) and nice thick blades. good visible LCD, stable reading and location(not covered by blade). But have to be very careful when using it for what it was designed for that is measuring wall angles due to incredibly lousy locking mechanism.Get one if it’s on super sale.

Pretty much what I was looking for.

Pretty much what I was looking for.

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 ...

Great saw for the money, even a better package

Great saw for the money, even a better package

I’ve been looking at cordless circular saws for some time now, because I want one to take with me to lumberyards to break down long boards so they fit into my small station wagon.Walking into Lowes three weeks ago looking for an unrelated item, I stumbled upon a Porter Cable combo-package of 4 tools, two Ni-cd batteries and a charger for a price I couldn’t afford to pass up – $129.00. After looking at it for about 10 seconds before I made up my mind to buy it, I was at the r...

problems but fast customer service

problems but fast customer service

03-12-2015 08:06 PM by Ray s | 5 comments »

I purchased a new Rikon 70-220VSR lathe on the 11th of November 2014 from Woodcraft. I turned a few pieces and the Rikon stopped working. I called customer service and they sent a new control board via two day mail. It took very little time to install and the lather worked like a charm. One caveat, you must stop the motor and wait for the speed indicator to clear prior to changing from forward to reverse of vice-verso. Cheers for the customer support for the fast identification and deliver...

Terrible design flaw and weak materials in this latest O.S.S.

Terrible design flaw and weak materials in this latest O.S.S.

06-20-2016 05:39 PM by CyberDyneSystems | 7 comments »

We’ve wanted an O.S.S. in the shop for some years. This year we had a windfall from the University and I was given 30 days to spend the money. (this is sort of a thing at Universities!) For new machines in the $1,500.00 price range, I had settled on the Jet JOVS-10 some time ago based partly on my experience with the bench-top JBOSS-5. (which I have reviewed favorably in the past, and own at home) Low and behold, Jet has replace the JOVS-10 with a newer model that sports many impr...

Gimlets

Gimlets

02-24-2012 01:08 PM by Roger | 8 comments »

This is the 1st time, and NOT the last that I will use these handy-dandy “Gimlets”. The 7 different sizes are a gr8, and quick way to make a threaded starter hole for the 7 different sized screws. I just used the smallest of the set to attach the buttons for the backs of a few picture frames. Very simple, and ez/breeeezee. These are made in France, and very affordable. You can see em at this link: http://www.garrettwade.com/set-of-gimlets-7/p/37J03.04/
