Outstanding Customer Service From Highland Woodworking/Olson Saw

Outstanding Customer Service From Highland Woodworking/Olson Saw

07-16-2012 04:35 AM by MT_Stringer | 7 comments »

Recently I bought a 1/8 inch 14 Tooth band saw blade from Highland Woodworking for my new 14 inch Grizzly band saw. It was working great as I was cutting out patterns glued onto 1/4 inch mdf. I had cut ten of them (fat fonts – about 5 inches tall), when suddenly the blade broke just as I was starting the next one. No stress or strain. I ordered another blade and a 3/16 inch 4 tooth blade from HW and I sent them an email detailing what had happened. I asked if the blade could be re-we...

Very little vibration on this little guy

Very little vibration on this little guy

07-01-2009 06:14 PM by sIKE | 12 comments »

As I blogged yesterday my old PC 333 ROS went to the great tool yard in the sky in the middle of my project. I needed something quick so I could finish the project. After looking through the reviews here at LJ’s this was the one my mind was set on. It was $70 at Lowe’s but I got them to honor a coupon from the BORG and got $5 off. PRO’s - Very little vibration, unlike the old PC- Dust Collection was very effective as previously noted- Nice long power cord – seem...

They drill holes

They drill holes

Website I love working with screws. They are cheap, hold very well and can be hidden from sight when countersunk and plugged. When I saw these bits at HD . . . I said “that is what I need.” Details – from Wolfcraft• Top quality precision tool that will drill, countersink, and counterbore in one easy operation. • For use with portable drills and drill presses • Countersink also allows flathead screws to sit level with the wooden surface and is adjustable allowing f...

Great design, good execution, excellent buy if on sale

Great design, good execution, excellent buy if on sale

These clamps were the first of my F-style clamp purchases to replace my HF F-style clamps. As of the review posting date, I have a set of 4 of these clamps. For full disclosure, my first choice would have been to get Bessey Tradesman with the 2K handle, but those things are rarely (if ever) on sale. I also have a set of 6 Bessey Tradesman in the 12” size so this review is a bit of a comparative review. At the full retail price, it’s , it’s a no brainer I would go for t...

1/4" Angle Die Grinder

1/4" Angle Die Grinder

08-03-2011 05:54 AM by Raymond | 1 comment »

Another good Harbor Freight find in my opinion was this little angle grinder. 1/4” 20000 RPM 3 CFM @ 90 PSI. The 1/8 collet from the other die grinder I purshased the last time I was at Harbor Freight fits this grinder. Pleanty of power, and does not bog down under a load. Like most HF air tools this one did not come with the fitting. I really wish they would include them. This is great for getting into hard to reach spaces. And it was on sale 14.99. Can’t go wrong. Like most of H...

Had this now for several months. I have all three plane blades which come in different angles. No matter the wood I am usually able to achieve a good finish.

Milwaukee M12 Rotary Tool

Milwaukee M12 Rotary Tool

10-03-2013 09:31 PM by PatrickB | 4 comments »

Again this tool review is just my opinion. I have quite a few of the Milwaukee M12 tools and really like them a lot. I have the “other” rotary tool too. The “other” tool is still working, the Milwaukee is no longer with us. I do not feel I abused the tool, you know, hours and hours of running with no breaks, battery after battery until the cover melted.LOL None of that, I feel I used the tool in the way it was designed to be used and with in about three months of owner...

Well worth the price

Well worth the price

06-12-2016 03:01 PM by stefang | 18 comments »

2 years experienceI bought these planes a couple of years ago. I didn’t want to give my verdict on them before getting enough experience with them to really know if I liked them or not. I also wanted to compare them with my regular Stanley planes. The Quangsheng planes are the ones with the light beech totes in the photo above. My Experience with hand planes in generalPrior to this purchase my only experience with hand planes has been my Stanley #5 jack plane I bought about 30 or 40 ...

New Shop Lights

New Shop Lights

My shop is a 2 car garage (2 cars….must be fiats) and there is only (1) window and (2) over head single light sockets.It gets pretty dark in there now once the sun goes down. I have been planning on putting up 3 banks of 4’ fluorescent lights and running them to switches on the wall. I was researching here and various forums for advice on proper lighting and used recommended formulas. Those calculations were telling me I needed about 9-12 fixtures. That seemed like overkill. ...
