Good idea but too flimsy

Good idea but too flimsy

05-31-2008 04:04 PM by teenagewoodworker | 7 comments »

Well i needed an edge guild and i didn’t want to order away for one so i got this milescraft edge guide. it is a good concept. it comes with a “swiss cheese” base that can be used on almost all routers which it able to be put into the edge guide and then you twist the router in the edge guide and it locks the router in. also they have a turnlock bushing that they include which is the same concept of the base. just insert it and twist to lock it down. as i said it is a good c...

Excellent beginer plane

Excellent beginer plane

03-09-2015 02:37 AM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

For a while i have been curious about the all hand plane movement. So i decided, I had to start somewhere, so i read a little them i jumped in. I ordered the 12-920 from Amazon for about $35. The unit came in perfect condition. The overall first impression is that the unit is well build and surprisingly heaving. Quick check and as suspected it did need to have bottom flatten and the blade seriously sharpen. That took a little bit of time but i have to say that is the first one i did so not be...

Not Bad For The Money...

Not Bad For The Money...

04-10-2010 10:04 PM by Rich99 | 8 comments »

I have a 14.4V and 18.0V Ryobi drill, both with NiCad batteries. They’re heavy. I use them more for driving screws than anything else, so I decided I wanted a lighter battery powered driver of some sort. Looking in the big box stores, I saw units that were in the $200 plus range, some more than double the price of either of my Ryobis (and the 18 volt came with a circular saw!). Then I spotted this little Black and Decker PD400LG Power Driver. It weighs nothing. Okay,maybe a half-pou...

12" Flexible (yes) precision (no) rule

12" Flexible (yes) precision (no) rule

03-01-2008 12:43 AM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

This 12” rule came highly recommended to me. After having used the 6” rule for a long time for just about everything ( it’s the one tool that’s always in my pocket ), I wanted the 12” rule. This was no easy feat as I don’t live in the US anymore and even on my recent visit back to the US, this ruler was difficult to find in your usual big box stores and actually I never was able to track it down. ( You know you are a lumberjock when you visit hardware store...

Great First Bench Stone

Great First Bench Stone

09-01-2013 02:11 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

Picture 1: the back of the stone—-after I had used it the mineral oil/swarf turned teh stone darker. The backside (minus the little “stain” on the left”) is what the front of the stone looked like before I used it. Picture 2: the case. Picture 3: the front of the stone after it had been wiped down after the first use was definitely darker than it was before use. Did not expect that. So I bought this (my first oilstone) earlier this week and used it for the f...

A mobile base for Canadians

A mobile base for Canadians

07-04-2010 01:01 AM by swayze | 8 comments »

I picked up this mobile base a couple of weeks ago for my new Grizzly 513p bandsaw. It was on sale for 65% off the regualr price of $99.99 so I thought what do I have to lose and I didn’t expect much. But the base performs excellent on the 350lb saw. The only negative about it is that in order to operate the cams that lifts the base up so the casters can make contact requires a little help by slightly pushing upward on the saw. But still very easily managed. The base is easily move...

Nice kit to get started.

Nice kit to get started.

02-17-2010 02:55 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 8 comments »

I bought this kit for about $300.00 at Home Depot about two years ago. The compressor itself is a basic pancake oil-free design; simple to maintain and easy to use. The nail guns are nice and heavy with a well balanced design. The tool bag is however barely big enough to hold all three guns, so you don’t have room to carry fasteners in the bag with them. The brad nailer is 18ga. 1 1/4”, the stapler is 18ga. 1” narrow crown, and the finish nailer is 16ga. 2 1/2”. The tw...

Two weeks in - Solid saw, many many minor complaints

Two weeks in - Solid saw, many many minor complaints

03-06-2015 07:32 PM by wolfinator | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: this is my first band saw. Indeed, the first time I have USED any band saw. So I don’t have much of a basis for comparison. However, after two weeks with this saw I think I can give a pretty good ‘new-user’ perspective. I really struggled with the star rating. This seems to be a fundamentally good saw, and I don’t necessarily regret it. However, the last two weeks have seen a lot of frustrations that I was not expecting from the fancy Porter-Cable ...

A Real Toolsaver

A Real Toolsaver

12-21-2013 12:46 AM by Mark Davisson | 15 comments »

I bought this metal detector about 4 years ago when starting to recycle some black walnut trim from our old farmhouse. I could see some exposed heads of the old steel spikes but was concerned about what I couldn’t see, and I didn’t want my planer to be the first to know. It performed beautifully, finding several hidden spikes, and I ended the project with my planer blades unscathed. This isn’t a tool I use often, but it has helped me on a few occasions to find nails in ...
