Stumpy Nubs Entertaining Review: Rockler Bench Cookies & Accessories P2

04-10-2013 12:56 PM by StumpyNubs | 3 comments »

NOTE: This is part TWO of this review. I couldn’t seem to post four videos on one review page. Please see part ONE here before viewing part two. The third video features the sawhorse clip attachments… And finally the finishing cone accessories… Now, in case you didn’t get it from the videos, here’s my written review of the Bench Cookies and Accessories: I love these little hockey pucks, and not just because they have the word “cookie” ...

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

10-22-2014 02:13 AM by Pezking7p | 13 comments »

I purchased this HVLP system last year during a Black Friday special from peachtree woodworking for the extremely low price of something like $70. Regular retail appears to be $120, so please keep this in mind as you read my review. The package comes with a single stage 400W turbine, about 8’ of hose, a spray gun with a plastic siphon cup, and a spare needle and a spare air filter. Everything was in great shape out of the box, just needed to clean the grease off the internals. T...

Cree 40 inch LED lighting fixture

Cree 40 inch LED lighting fixture

10-25-2014 12:07 AM by Sawdust4Blood | 10 comments »

I have a basement shop that had some lighting put in by the builder. It was enough to keep you from running into things but wasn’t really the quality of light that you would like to have while woodworking. So I had been looking at putting in something that would provide better light while I was working. Originally, I was thinking about standard T8 fluorescent tubes. While fluorescent has never been the kind of light that I prefer, for shop lighting it’s probably been the mo...

Storage Units

Storage Units

02-27-2009 05:44 PM by Randy Sharp | 10 comments »

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.

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

Leigh VRS - the VRS24 exactly

Leigh VRS - the VRS24 exactly

09-11-2013 03:53 PM by ken_c | 6 comments »

I purchased the VRS attachment for my Leigh jig a while ago but hadn’t needed to make any dovetails for a while – until now – The vacuum attachment is well worth the $100. I estimate dust collection now at about 98%. I would highly recommend anyone with a Leigh jig pony up the extra cash and get that attachment. Mine is hooked up to a 4” port on the central dust collection but gets reduced to a 2 1/4” hose at the jig. That provides a fairly low air speed for...

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. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...

The Wood Wright's Eclectic Workshop

The Wood Wright's Eclectic Workshop

01-09-2013 06:54 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 3 comments »

The following review is copied from my website, A Slice of Wood Workshop. The Wood Wright’s Eclectic Workshop, by Roy Underhill, was more than I expected. On the cover it says “How to start with a tree and an axe and make one thing after another until you have a house and everything in it.” I figured that it would show you how to make furniture for the house. It was much more. Open the cover and look at the table of contents and you will get a slight glimpse of what to expect. The first...
