Global Sharpening

I recently made a purchase of a Global Rough Grit Ceramic Whetstone. After using this stone for one day it was already starting to dish. I have other ceramics that I use that have not shown any wear. I have a set of ceramic rods that I have used for over 30 years that do not show any wear. I also have a flat stone that is over a year old that shows no wear. My personal opinion (which is not worth much sometimes) is that the ceramic stones are the best. After a lot of use they hold up bette...

Jet / Powermatic X-Y Mortiser

Jet / Powermatic X-Y Mortiser

01-14-2015 08:29 PM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

I started with a Delta benchtop mortiser, and found the need to upgrade to a bigger machine. The Jet JFM-5 is basically the same as the Powermatic 719-A. The longer handle and the 1 hp motor make this machine easier to use than benchtop mortisers. I realized that most benchtop units don’t hold the workpiece very well, and require you to use your hand like a clamp to hold the workpiece in place. The Jet solves that problem with a sturdy face clamp. CLAMPThe clamp keeps the workpiece...

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

12-11-2014 07:26 AM by chrisworker | 11 comments »

For the longest time I would use my PSI DC1B-XL for my dust collection needs, but since I upgraded my jointer from a 6” to an 8” and my planer from my lunchbox to a new 3hp spiral cutter I have been buying my lumber in the rough from a local dealer. When I started to get my lumber this way I quickly realized I needed a bigger dust collector. I have read numerous reviews from this webpage and others about the HF 2hp dust collector so I grabbed my coupon and off I went to get my b...

Anti Slip Tape

Well, not much to talk about here except if you don’t have any around the shop, you may consider getting a roll it’s around $6.00. It’s perfect for that none slip miter fence. I can find few more uses for it I’m sure. Peel and stick and 2” x 96” inches.

Special Finishing Techniques DVD

Special Finishing Techniques DVD

11-18-2009 06:17 PM by mtkate | 7 comments »

Do you like quirky? (I DO!!!) Do you like unpretentious honesty? (I DO!!!) Do you like to get interesting and rock-solid insights into how an expert does his finishing? (I DO!!!) I got this DVD for a recent birthday. I put Charles Neil DVDs on my wishlist and actually got one. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and learned a LOT. For example, I never really knew much about grain filling techniques… and now I am looking at remnants of red oak wanting to give it a shot. When m...

Fantastic Affordable Blades from Bosch

Fantastic Affordable Blades from Bosch

02-04-2011 02:46 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 3 comments »

I picked this 60 tooth ATB from Menards about nine months ago for $60. The blade is not thin kerf, she can be resharpened, she’s balanced and quiet. Crosscuts have been clean and smooth with minimal tearout. I can’t afford Forrest and I wanted something with some beef to it for making crosscuts, Bosch has fit the bill. They have a full line of “Pro Series” blades which I have decided to invest in.

disappointed in Veritas

disappointed in Veritas

01-22-2015 04:21 PM by libraryman | 12 comments »

My son presented with me with a Veritas low angle spokeshave for Christmas. We were going to use it for shaping an oak axe handle we had cut out. I initially tested it on Christmas day using some pine and cherry scraps around the shop. Worked great on this fairly soft wood. However when we later tried to shape the oak handle the problems began. The blade is held in place by two bolt heads which contact side bevels on the blade. The instructions for the shave say you need to sand the back of ...
