Rust Remover & Preserver for South Africans

Rust Remover & Preserver for South Africans

11-22-2009 08:40 AM by PG_Zac | 1 comment »

I can’t speak for it’s wood finishing / polishing properties, but MAN it’s fantastic for removing rust !!!.Here in a very rural area in South Africa, I have no easy access to large stores of any kind, let alone a specialist woodworking store. I’ve never seen Boeshield or the other products many LJ’s use for protecting their machines, I doubt that they are even in the major centers in S.A. I had a problem with rain on my Bandsaw – here is the upper guide...

Homemade veneer flattening solution

Homemade veneer flattening solution

11-09-2009 11:59 PM by RBWoodworker | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a veneer pump, and got some veneer along with the deal.. but the veneer that I got, was rolled in a protective paper and left for who know’s how long.. it took the curve of the roll well and would not lay flat no matter what I did.. I put it between two platens and left it for 3 weeks and that did not do the trick…SO.. Lee Jesberger has this solution on his website prowoodworkingtips.com and it consist of 1 gallon of water..8 oz. of pure glycerin which is avai...

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

10-26-2009 03:59 AM by drfixit | 9 comments »

This is going to be my first review here at LJs and hope some one finds it of use. I normally use the cheap little shop brushes for spreading glue in joints and on tenons and such. I went by the local WoodCraft the other day to pick some up and came across these polypropylene glue spreaders. There is 6 in a pack and at $3.50 I figured it would be worth a shot. Love em! I use a lot of Tight Bond glue, after using one the other night while glueing up a clock case, I simply let it dry over n...

Great for something, but not for spreading glue!

Great for something, but not for spreading glue!

I hate the idea of tossing out acid brushes after a few uses (they’re steel!) and I’ve been looking for alternatives (for the record, there aren’t any :-) so I bought these little dealios. Long story short, they are TERRIBLE for spreading glue. They act more like a squeegee—pulling glue away from your intended target. Which brings us to what they ARE good for, and that’s scraping glue off once its skinned over. These things are a nice plastic, they are g...

Hi Guys. I don’t know if I’m doing this right or not. There was a previous review of this gun and I just wanted to give my review as well.Came across Woodgal’s entry about the Critter so I read more reviews from Amazon. Got my Critter Sprayer from Amazon for $33.81 free tax/shipping.Got 12 regular mouth Ball mason jars from our local Stater Bros. supermarket for around $10.Filled 1 with blue tinted water (used food coloring) just for practice, 1 with clear water for cleani...

Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show

Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show

05-09-2009 11:52 PM by Douglas Bordner | 113 comments »

Calico Polish Off Artifical Nail and Polish Remover. Excellent and effective product for removing CA glue build up from fingers. I haven’t had the need (knock wood) to separate my fingers from themselves or a workpiece using this product, so I do buy the Super Solvent that is a shelfmate of the other Hot Stuff Cyanoacylate glues I use. However after fiddling with some inlay banding today, I developed a thin coat of CA on the fingers. At $2.99 the Polish Off (with Acetone) is significant...

LOCKTITE Power Grab adhesive, great stuff!

LOCKTITE Power Grab adhesive, great stuff!

05-04-2009 07:08 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 9 comments »

I used Locktite Power Grab to install some cleats to support some shelves in our 5th wheel. The surfaces were fairly slick, so I roughed them up a bit with 50 grit sandpaper. I tried this adhesive because the cabinets are fairly deep and narrow, It would be quite difficult to reach in to position,, hold and attach the cleats with screws. I intended to get the cleats placed and use screws later. The product holds so well, I cannot break it loose after a day and a half. The only failure w...

Made the switch

Made the switch

After using almost a whole tub (1lb) of SC Johnson paste wax in the last year or so, I caught Renaissance wax on sale at Woodcraft this month and reluctantly bought a can. I say reluctantly since the street price of this stuff is 26 bucks for 200ml or 7 fl. OZ. Little can for 26 or big ole pounder for 8. Ability to buy at Borg or local department store (blue, biggest in the world) or have to buy at specialty shops or order online. You can see my apprehension. But after the rave reviews b...

LOCKTITE POWER GRAB REALLY SUCKED .... * WORST ADHESIVE ON PLANET EARTH*

LOCKTITE POWER GRAB REALLY SUCKED .... * WORST ADHESIVE ON PLANET EARTH*

03-31-2009 01:31 AM by Dan'um Style | 27 comments »

LOCKTITE POWER GRAB is crap. I glued and clamped six large landscape tiles to a plywood board with Power Grab thinking it would be an improvement over my normal method of Gorilla Glue (sometimes a little messy). NOT I HAVE NEVER in all my years used anything that worked so poorly. REALLY REALLY BAD. Last night I applied 3/4 a tube to fasten my tiles to a plywood backer board. I lightly clamped the tiles with spring clamps and let it setup OVERNIGHT ... (over 20hours). Came home...

Works well thus far

Works well thus far

02-26-2009 11:39 PM by Will Mego | 4 comments »

With the intention of using it to spray glue down pieces of sandpaper for the Scary Sharp sharpening method, I bought this at my local Ace Hardware, large can was about $12 or so. I’ve only used it a couple of times, but thus far it works well, giving me paper glued onto 1/2” plate glass strongly enough to work chisels on it, but it pops off easily when I want to remove the paper. I just spray a tiny amount on the back of the paper, and stick it down, let it set for a few seconds....
