Classic Roy for the diehard fan

Classic Roy for the diehard fan

07-05-2012 11:16 PM by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

Ok here it is….we have waited and waited and then that great day came when we finally got the news…..the Woodrights Shop is finally going to be released on dvd!!!!! Before I even review this first installment I want to say in my opinion this set may only be for the diehard Roy Underhill/Woodrights shop fan only, in regards to if you are wondering if the marked down $39.99 to $29.99 price tag is worth your money for each double disc dvd package. The shows content….is pr...

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...

Just picked up my new Bosch 18v Litheon yesterday morning ($239 can) for an install i had to do. I wasnt confident that my Dewalt would make it through the job and didnt want to be stuck without. This is the second Bosch drill ive had and now i wont use anything else. This drill is very light for an 18v which im sure mostly has to do with the lo-pro litheon battery packs it uses. i found myself check the case befor i left to make sure the drill was actually in there because it was so light co...

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

10-06-2014 11:28 PM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

Got this handy little gizmo in the mail the other day and used it right off on my DeWalt 12 1/2” planer blades. I would wait until all six edges need sharpening before sharpening the blades. It’s easier to sharpen 6 edges and keep it even for all the edges. I sharpen 2 edges, remove one blade and flip the other blade and put in the 3rd blade and sharpen as before. Then remove the blade that was flipped and install the first removed blade with one edge needing sharpening still. And...

Steel stick on tape

Steel stick on tape

08-04-2012 06:08 PM by guitchess | 6 comments »

After realizing that I had stretched my vinyl tape when assembling my tablesaw, I started searching for a replacement. I knew that I wanted a steel tape so as to avoid the issue of stretch. The only version that I found online was $17 so I postponed buying so I could search for a cheaper alternative. I was killing time in the tool department at Walmart and stumbled on this one. the Komelon 12’ x 1/2” Flat Tape Ruler. As soon as I saw that it was steel I was interested and whe...

Porter-Cable PC218C-2 PORTER-CABLE 18-Volt Cordless Drill & Circular Saw Combo

Porter-Cable PC218C-2 PORTER-CABLE 18-Volt Cordless Drill & Circular Saw Combo

01-07-2013 01:31 AM by kdc68 | 6 comments »

I’ve had this combo set for just over a year now. Overall they work good. The Nicad batteries aren’t as long lasting as I would have hoped. When I had the chance I upgraded to Lithuim batteries. That was an improvement.The drill has its quirks. The chuck isn’t the best. Once in a while the driver or a drill bit comes loose when using it. I have learned to tighten the chuck after a few uses.The cordless saw isn’t bad, but I upgraded to a better blade (the norm). ...

Great for general construction!

Great for general construction!

01-30-2014 03:56 PM by smitdog | 12 comments »

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 ...

My tenon making solution

My tenon making solution

10-09-2014 01:33 AM by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I’ve made tenons using several different methods. I had avoided buying a tenoning jig because it seemed like an unnecessary outlay of funds. I could make them by hand, with the bandsaw, or using a dado blade on the table saw. But for whatever reasons, I always have been a little frustrated by how they came out. I ended up doing way too much fine tuning with chisel/plane/sandpaper. So, I bit the bullet and purchased the Grizzly tenoning jig through Amazon, $88.59. I was annoyed...

I bought this today, after I knew I was going to do a lot of sanding. I’ve been using the paper masks for a while and I hate them. I hate how the paper ones make you breath hot air and are really stuffy. I also hate how they never fit right. Opening 3m Respirator was easy and it was easy to assemble. All you have to do is attach the filters. There is two head straps on the respirator. The top one starts off as one strap but splits into two and cradles your head comfortably. The bott...

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

07-02-2008 08:15 PM by Woodshopfreak | 4 comments »

This is a blade I was curious about for a long time and I can tell you that this blade is great. I was originally looking into the 40 tooth version of this because Wood magazine had rated it really great but this one just caught my eye because it has more teeth, better for crosscutting, and it has large gullets every five teeth for sawdust removal. This makes it great. I was worried that my “Under powered saw” couldn’t handle ripping with a 50 tooth blade but this thing has ...
