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 ...

A "cliff's notes" for hand and power tool maintenance

A "cliff's notes" for hand and power tool maintenance

07-31-2011 05:08 PM by Tedstor | 5 comments »

Out of impulse, I bought this FWW magazine. Its not actually one of their usually monthly editions, but an extra volume which gives a nice overview on maintaining and improving all sorts of hand and power tools. A few examples from the table of contents include (very non-exhaustive): - Tool Kit for Tune-Ups Explaining the tools needed for measuring table saw run-out, jointer blade height, etc. And explains how to use them effectively. Anyone that doesn’t know how to do this should ru...

Customer Service!!!

Customer Service!!!

I recently placed an order with Highland for two bandsaw blades. A 1/2” and a 3/4” woodslicer but had accidentally two 3/4” Woodslicers instead. About a day after the order was placed I received a call from HighLand about my order asking if I really wanted two blades the exact same or was it a mistake. I meant to order a 1/2” and the 3/4”, who calls to double check an order these days? Even if I had wanted two 3/4” blades the same it’s nice to know th...

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...

Harbor Freight Air Drill

Harbor Freight Air Drill

06-26-2011 03:59 AM by Raymond | 0 comments »

I reciently was at Harbor Freight and picked up a few goodies. I have been looking for a few air tools lately and since I have had good luck with Harbor Freight tools I figured to give them a shot. My first item was the 3/8” Reversible Air Drill With Keyed Chuck and Key 19.99, 5 cfm at 90 1700 rpm. Out of the box it looked great no packing grease to remove, packaged nicely in bubble wrap with instructions and a chuck key, no air fitting (would be nice if that was included). I have been ...

This grinder is a good grinder to start off with but you need to replace the crappy gray wheels that come with the grinder you should get the white ones with dont wear off as much but other than that it is a nice grinder. A good add on is to build bigger platforms or tools rests because the ones that come with this are not very big for a no. 7 jointer plane blade. This grinder costs about $50.00 and their are things to upgrade but nobody buys a a $2000 cabinet saw and doesnt upgrade the fenc...

MicrogJig's GRR-RIPPER GR100 Up For Review

MicrogJig's GRR-RIPPER GR100 Up For Review

01-12-2015 09:16 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

I recently reviewed the GR100 by MicroJig and was pretty impressed. The green grippy surface really does it’s job on keeping a secure hold on your work as you use it on the table saw. It was especially helpful when making 2” deep cuts on the tablesaw through cherry. I used the GRR-RIPPER to push the stock against the fence, and a regular push stick on top of the board to help advance the stock through the blade. I’ll have a video on my YouTube of this soon (I hope). ...

Classic Roy for the diehard fan

Classic Roy for the diehard fan

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...

Great on instruction - short on plans

Great on instruction - short on plans

11-16-2009 06:04 AM by epp_dog | 1 comment »

I have several of these books and like them all. I decided to try making a version of one of the boxes in this book. The instruction about “how to build a box” is great but there are no real “plans” or measured drawings. Not all the parts are listed nor all the dimensions. If you are careful to read the instructions and “build the box in your head” first you will probably work through most issues. Great book for learning – NOT a book for plans....
