What a great idea

What a great idea

http://www.fullpro.com/products-purchase.php The idea behind these safety glasses is simple. Normal glasses, when worn with earmuffs, get uncomfortable (to me anyway). The earmuffs tend to pinch the “arms” of the glasses against the sides of your head. Also, they affect hearing protection, breaking the seal the earmuffs have around your ears. These glasses have straps instead of rigid “arms”. The straps attach to the outside of your earmuffs via adhesive Hook ...

  Pepperwood Burl Writing Box

Pepperwood Burl Writing Box

02-17-2014 10:40 PM by Dennis Zongker | 5 comments »

Fellow LJ member Roger Bean wrote a great E-book on making a Pepperwood Burl Writing Box which has 119 pages filled with pictures and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. This eBook is not a repeat of volume 1; most of the materials are different and provides useful information to add to Roger’s series. I have always admired Rogers work and his boxes are beautiful. I enjoyed looking over his shoulder because a woodworker can learn a lot from others and Rogers’s style and explanations ...

Heat Treating Heaven!

Heat Treating Heaven!

04-09-2016 01:04 AM by Ripthorn | 6 comments »

I like to build tools, but the most frustrating part is usually heat treating the parts that need it. I have been using MAPP gas, but with one of the old style brass torch heads. I have a 1 1/2” wide, 1/4” thick, 3 1/2” long iron that needs heat treatment and I decided enough was enough and I went to HD and bought this torch. A couple things surprised me about it: - All metal construction, save the two knobs. The black part is not plastic, like I thought it might be.- ...

Foot Savers

Foot Savers

07-26-2011 06:33 AM by coloradoclimber | 8 comments »

My shop space has a concrete floor. I’m ok with the concrete, it is easy to clean and easy to roll my tools around. But it is KILLER on my feet and back. I have flat feet, you know the kind that when you walk barefoot they make a sucking sound when you pick your feet up. The kind that when people see your foot prints in the sand they think the web footed monster from the black lagoon must have strolled by. And because of my feet after any full day in the shop my feet just ache, whi...

Lie-Nielson curved bottom spokeshave.  Very Nice!

Lie-Nielson curved bottom spokeshave. Very Nice!

12-15-2012 07:43 PM by mbs | 3 comments »

I’ve used this spoke shave for about a year now. I really like it for sculpting the front of a seat or the leg of a chair. The edge has stayed nice and sharp. It’s easy to set the blade depth too. Very comfortable to use. I think I paid $100 and now they’re $135. That’s pretty steep but it’s a good tool. I think LN is in competition with Veritas to see who can raise the prices the fastest. I wish I would have bought more of both brands when they were...

A+ Router

A+ Router

07-02-2008 07:48 PM by Woodshopfreak | 8 comments »

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

This is a review of the LU86 thin kerf 40 tooth general purpose blade. I have been using this blade for all rips and crosscuts, and I must say I’m quite impressed. For ripping I was mentally comparing it to my Freud 24 tooth dedicated ripping blade. It seemed to rip 13/16” stock just as effortlessly as the 24 tooth ripper, but with a cleaner edge. There was no chipout at all with the use of a ZCI. My ripper often chips out the underside of hardwood cuts. I also look for a ...

Porter Cable 4.5" Cordless Angle Grinder: Revised

Porter Cable 4.5" Cordless Angle Grinder: Revised

10-23-2014 02:19 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

Had a break in the middle of my project because I’m waiting on some parts, so I decided to review one of my recent tool purchases. I bought it at Lowes for $35. Tool buying tip: go find a sale online and ask the cashiers to price match. Lowes has a price +10% guarantee. Then you get another 5% if you put it on your Lowes credit card. See my video review:

Great at first look, but in the long run, not so much

Great at first look, but in the long run, not so much

09-12-2011 03:21 AM by Mike | 7 comments »

So first off let me say that the reason for the rating is due to long term use of the stopper. The stopper use with a turned top is easy to do and assembly is simple too. My reason for the rating is due to the chemical reaction that occurs between the chrome and the wine acid. As you can see by the second image, the chrome is being dissolved into the wine. The way I found this out was that I had a open bottle laying on it’s side in my fridge for a few weeks and I pulled it out to fi...
