Combining Power Tools and Planes

Combining Power Tools and Planes

10-06-2011 04:08 PM by WayneC | 7 comments »

This DVD is another one filmed in the mid 90s and makes the argument of why would would want to use handplanes to augment your power tool woodworking. In the video he uses modern manufacture planes from the 90s such as a crappy stanley #4 stanely, #92 and 60 1/2 block plane. I was not really in favor of his advise and techniques and feel the video is so so. I would recommend videos from KingShott, Schwarz, Charlesworth and perhaps Cosman over this video.

New Plane User's Required Reading

New Plane User's Required Reading

The first plane that I bought was a $25 big box store special block plane, that I thought might be useful to trim the edges of some boards that I trimming my basement with. Out of the box it did nothing more than gouge and tear the wood, and quickly was assigned a place of dishonour in my shop. That was a year and a half ago. Since then, I’ve learnt a little bit more about planes, and managed to tune it to produce some nice curly shavings from it after a lot of sole flattening and blade sharp...

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

This Forrest blade is by far the very best blade I have ever owned. I ripped and crosscut some 3/4” Baltic Birch with no bottom chip out at all. All of these years of using cheap blades what a waste of time and material. Looking forward to using my Forrest 8” Dado blade now.

Tried this bit out on a round tabouret top and shelf and this bit does a great job. No tearout whatsoever because you’re never going against the grain..The attached link explains it pretty well.Definitely recommended.

My S.I.L. works at a chemical plant in Yazoo City Mississippi. They use a lubricant there caller kroil. The only place that I know of that it can be bought is direct from the factory which is KANO labs located in TN. I ordered some and believe it is twice as good as WD40. Check out the web site http://www.kanolabs.com. I believe that if you try it you too will be h

Storage Units

These little gadgets (cans) are recycled from another use, but come in very handy in the storage of misc. nuts, bolts, washers, etc. I own a small collection of these storage devices myself. This company produces several colors, versions and sizes. Other companys also produce these economical units.

Great Clamps, Thank you Bessey!

Great Clamps, Thank you Bessey!

09-09-2013 03:03 PM by The Box Whisperer | 1 comment »

After applying online to be a product tester, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a response from a Bessey employee. Apparently I had made the “cut” and they wanted me to review their clamps. I was thrilled, as every good woodworker out there has said, you can never have enough clamps. The interactions with the employee were very friendly, and I was asked which products among the auto adjust toggle clamps I would like to try. I picked out 8 clamps and waited like a kid at Chris...

Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed.
