Precision Machinist Square at a reasonable price

Precision Machinist Square at a reasonable price

05-27-2016 10:40 PM by dschlic1 | 9 comments »

I have been looking for a precision square to align may machines and also my combination squares. I found the PEC tools solid square on eBay. Un like most other low cost squares, it comes with a squareness specification : 0.0006”/6”. I checked it using a dial indicator, it indeed looks to be within that accuracy. You can find this square for sale here. Made in the USA, High precision all for $26! The only downside (if you could call it that) is that it does not come in a cas...

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...

Brilliant!

My first experience spraying Minwax Polycrylic has been outstanding: thins and sprays better than oil based poly, no flammable fumes, easy to clean up and looks great. The biggest downside: sanding! The grain is raised twofold using the water based, plan on using 220 to knock down the first bristles and 400 to finish. I’m sold.

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

Sometimes things come together like two peas in a pod! I was feeling bad at snapping at my employee last week, but the guy has been working for me for two months and still had no idea where anything is located in our shop. I would have to stop what I was doing to find a tool for him. Then to make it worse, the guy would put it back IN THE WRONG place and then I would have to ask him where it went lol. Enough is enough!I have seen these “wood shop labels” at www.steellabels.com be...

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...

Quality saw, worth the investment

Quality saw, worth the investment

I have only had this saw for a few weeks but I have put it to pretty heavy use in that time building a couple Adirondack chairs and a few jigs. I am very glad I own this saw. It is worlds apart from most introductory jig saws (Black&Decker, Skill, Craftsman, Chicago…) I am not trying to be snooty but I have owned these and I am glad I upgraded. From where I stand here are the saws pros and cons. PROS:-Quick-Change blade clamp allows fast blade changes – no tools required. O...

Having followed late last year it was noted with great sadness that this company had closed it doors. It supposedly made the greatest rasps for woodworkers in the world. Each one is handcrafted by an artisan in France who had to train for 3 years to until they are allowed to forge, heat treat and hand stitch a rasp whose teeth are cut very regular, but always spaced a bit little off with each tooth cutting a slightly different path than its predecessor. This results in a tool that is both po...

Missed the mark

I must admit, I know very few mobile bases that are actually worth much, and this one is no exception. The brakes have no chance of holding against a load; The entire setup is very unstable, everything wobbles; Universal = Universal from 24×24 to 36×36
