The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

07-05-2009 09:03 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Author: Sandor Nagyszalanczy$14.93 at Amazon as of this writing Ok, you’ve got to be getting pretty specific if you are looking at buying a book solely written about what is technically a huge vacuum cleaner! However, as woodworkers, we should all be concerned with doing it healthily for ourselves and anyone else in our shops. If you need this information it is a good thing that someone has compiled this book for you. Sandor does a great job of taking this topic and logically cove...

Good Video for Beginners

Good Video for Beginners

02-16-2010 07:27 AM by johnnymo | 1 comment »

Recently bought this DVD at Woodworkers Source to help me improve my jointing and planing skills. There are a lot of helpful tips on the video. My favorite is how to mill out cupped, bowed, crooked and twisted boards. If your learning how to use a jointer and/or a planer this will be a helpful tool to have in your arsenal of knowledge. There are other DVD’s in this series that are for the tablesaw, bandsaw, lathe, and shaper. Good deal for $20.

Nice compressor for small jobs.

Nice compressor for small jobs.

03-01-2008 02:15 AM by kshipp | 0 comments »

I got this compressor to carry around the shop or the house for small nailing jobs. It does really well at that, but not as good as some of the new things that have come out since. It has a 2-gallon capacity which allows you to drive a good number of brads before refilling. There is an adjustable pressure regulator and a quick connect valve. A nice feature is the little storage box on-board for small small accessories and the handle on the top. I tried carrying a lot of the small compre...

This book review is from the September 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Handcarved Christmas from the editors of Woodcarving Illustrated Looking at the cover image I first thought that this book would be for advanced carvers only but as I looked through the different projects, with the in-depth directions and step-by-step photos I changed my mind. Although the projects are from simple to complex, e...

OK while they last, but they don't last long.

OK while they last, but they don't last long.

I bought a spray system from peachtree woodworking on black friday, and on a whim I added two sets of these earmuffs to the order because they were on sale for under $10, normal price $14.99. http://www.ptreeusa.com/safety_products.htm#4205 As far as hearing protection goes, they worked OK – until they broke. Comfort:3/5. They weren’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t like Pamela Anderson was covering my ears with her ample bosom either. Fit: 3/5. Even after adjusting...

Compact Air Die Grinder Kit

Compact Air Die Grinder Kit

06-26-2011 04:20 AM by Raymond | 0 comments »

I was looking for a die grinder, and came across this little one 1/4 and 1/8 collets. This is an outstanding little grinder for the money 14.99. Lots of torque. It did not bog down when using a power rasp to remove stock from a piece of oak. At 4 cfm at 90, and 21,000 rpm it has tons of power. Fits the hand well and does exactly what I want it to do. Fit and finish is great. Again no air fittings. Another Harbor Freight tool I would recommend.

Good stand with innovative features.

Good stand with innovative features.

02-29-2008 11:30 PM by kshipp | 1 comment »

This is a very versatile stand for the price. My previous stand was basically a metal tee that tipped easily and had some cheap plastic for rollers. This stand is heavy enough (and has a wide-enough stance) to not tip over but is still easy to store and move. For storage it folds flat and can hang on the wall. The height is adjustable from 27” to 44” and there is a positive stop at the top so you don’t have to worry about lifting it right out of the tube. The locking m...

Fantastic little workhorse!

Fantastic little workhorse!

02-29-2008 08:30 AM by Hawgnutz | 2 comments »

This has turned into my go-to sander for most of my initial or coarse sanding jobs. It uses inexpensive sandpaper that you can cut yourself. It has great power so you can complete a sometimes tedious job quicker and more efficiently! The built in dust collection works fantastic, too! It is very rare to find a sander that leaves so LITLE sawdust behind when it is hooked up to a 2 1/2” shop vacuum! It includes a punch plate so you can pierce your sandpaper if you wish to cut it yours...
