HOMERIGHT Spray Shelter

HOMERIGHT Spray Shelter

08-20-2017 09:53 PM by RichTaylor | 8 comments »

If you’re like me, spraying finishes frequently and don’t have a dedicated spray booth, you know how it gets all over things. Even with the two-car garage door open, and side door open for cross ventilation, topcoats like lacquer get in the air and settle on everything. I happened on the HOMERIGHT Spray Shelters on Amazon, and decided to give the smaller tabletop model a try. At just over $30, it seemed like I didn’t have much to lose. As it turned out, it’s a ni...

Top snapped apart on one bag

Top snapped apart on one bag

08-11-2017 07:33 PM by ColonelTravis | 4 comments »

Bought a pack of 4 last spring, they were doing great until the top of the screw cap on one broke after almost a year. Really ticked about that because I had plenty of finish left in the bag. The other three bags are fine, and I’d like to buy more when I’m done with them because the concept is great. But if another top breaks I will not. Don’t know how the top of the cap came off. Went to open it a week ago and saw that the top was broken and the finish was ruined. In the...

Aerosol Spray Heads

Aerosol Spray Heads

07-02-2017 01:48 AM by RichTaylor | 4 comments »

Not the most exciting product to review, but if you’re unhappy with the spray pattern you’re getting from an aerosol spray can, these heads will make a difference. At only $0.45 apiece, they are a bargain. They also make good replacements for clogged heads. Note that they have male posts intended for female can tops. They perform as described. The fan heads put out a nice, even fan, and can be rotated for vertical or horizontal spray patterns. The fine spray head is really...

Mohawk Finishing Products Brush Tip Graining Markers

Mohawk Finishing Products Brush Tip Graining Markers

06-21-2017 11:42 PM by RichTaylor | 3 comments »

These are brush tip graining markers from Mohawk. As can be seen in the photo, the tip is extremely fine and capable of making grain patterns almost as fine as a human hair. They are true brush tips, and perform just like a fine artist’s brush, but without the need to load them with stain, and clean afterwards. Just pop the cap back on and they’ll be ready for next time. One feature that stands out is the opacity of the mark. I’ve used felt tip touch up markers to fix...

HIPUR WW30 Hot-Melt Glue, Amazing product

HIPUR WW30 Hot-Melt Glue, Amazing product

04-23-2017 12:49 AM by RJL73 | 2 comments »

This is a great concept. If anyone is wondering whether or not its a necessary expense, i’ll go over a couple of things from my experience so far. I ordered the Hipurformer Glue gun, which came from Franklin, it said Steinel on it when i opened the box. I ordered the WW30 cartridges to start and they came with the glue gun through WoodWorkers Hardware. The front part of the glue gun is where you put the cartridge, then you attach it to the handle. I plugged it in and waited the 12 m...

Loctite GO2 Glue for filling a void

Loctite GO2 Glue for filling a void

03-05-2017 07:15 PM by FarmerintheWoods | 9 comments »

One of the blanks I have for my latest project is walnut with fancy grain. In the middle is a small bark inclusion, and in its center was a void/cavity. I used a Dremel with a round-end bit to clean out the cavity, and to get down to solid wood at about 1/8”. With the blank laying horizontal, I filled the void with Loctite GO2 Glue. I figured it would flatten itself, because it seemed runny enough to do that, but it acted thicker and formed a ‘mound’ that rose up above th...

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

02-05-2017 03:23 AM by cicerojoe | 7 comments »

This rapid fuse CA glue for wood is relatively new. Maybe a year since it was brought to market. I have seen the fast cap and hot stuff and other similar products which require the glue to be sprayed with an activator for instant cure. These look good but I never pulled the trigger, especially because I’d have to get them mailed to me. Anyway, I saw this Dap rapid fuse at home depot and a couple things caught my attention. 1st I remembered reading about this in a woodworking magazine...

The Works works for cleaning glue bottles

The Works works for cleaning glue bottles

09-02-2016 04:47 PM by TexAus | 13 comments »

I love stuff that’s cheap and works and The Works toilet bowl cleaner is one such product. I’ve used it before for removing rust from tools but recently found another use – dissolving glue. I had two Glu Bot glue bottles that had been sitting with old glue in them for much too long. When I went to clean them out I found that there was glue that was gummed up in them and some dried in places I couldn’t get to well to clean out. I tried soaking them in water for a fe...
