Odies oil for Instruments

Odies oil for Instruments

07-04-2013 09:39 PM by GibsonWoodworking | 0 comments »

I have been using odies oil now for a few months and I am sold on it. I actually have all of the odies products and they are all wonderful and worth trying. The interesting thing about odies is that all the different products and designed to work together, meaning you can basically customize the finish to get the result you want.I have tried all the traditional instrument finishes, Nitro Lacquer, Tru Oil, Shellac, and Odies is by far the easiest to get a great finish with…. and you don&...

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

06-10-2013 02:45 AM by Denco | 8 comments »

I bought a Rockler glue brush and it works great, just as advertised. When the glue dries, you can peel it off. Easy to clean, spreads well. However….I was in the dollar store one day and they had Betty Crocker basting brushes….for a buck each. My curiosity got the best of me (you know where I’m going with this). I decided to do a comparison….head to head….for the title of “Best Glue Brush”. I trimmed the Betty Crocker brush so the bristles (?) ar...

Elmer's ProBond Advanced, another great product from a trusted name

Elmer's ProBond Advanced, another great product from a trusted name

05-12-2013 12:42 AM by dj1096 | 6 comments »

Like most woodworkers I have a variety of glues for various projects. I was sent a sample bottle of through the Handyman Club. To be honest, I tried this with some trepidation but was pleased at the results. On metal to wood it held every bit as well as Gorilla Glue which I normally use. Whereas polyurethane glue expands and oozes, Elmer’s ProBond Advanced performed without the messy cleanup. I can only testify to how it worked on the projects I did. The first project was wood to...

HVLP ready primer.

HVLP ready primer.

05-10-2013 02:56 AM by twc | 20 comments »

This is my first review on LumberJocks. I purchased this primer at HD to use on some knotty pine tongue & groove v-boards. I have to say it worked as well as i hoped. Being shellac based it does have a pretty strong odor but that goes away within a few hours. During the application I wore my respirator and did not spell anything but once removed there was a strong odor. A huge bonus in my eyes was that it is ready to spray straight out of the can. I used my Earlex 5000 hvlp spraye...

I like painting furniture again.

I like painting furniture again.

Update 11/14: This paint is proving to have tank-like durability. The table is in the foyer of my home, right nest to my front door. Every time I walk through the door, I (literally) toss my keys, wallet, and phone on it. I would have figured by now there would be a few dings and scratches in the paint. Not so. Still looks great. I actually put a base coat of black rustoleum under the green Benjamin Moore, hoping to get an interesting weathered look over time as the black would start to show ...

Vacuum Pressing At A Reasonable Cost

Vacuum Pressing At A Reasonable Cost

04-29-2013 03:00 AM by vipond33 | 20 comments »

To begin: If space is a vacuum, who changes the bag? Hmm? Back to earth. We use a vacuum bag extensively at our shop. Everything goes in it; veneered panels & torsion box assemblies. .solid layups and curved work pressings of course. . Recently, our old bag had had the bun. Full of difficult to patch holes, it was a mess. A new one though, was going to run us $550 from our original supplier. You have to pause at that expense, grimace a bit and patch a few more times. Then, ...

Finishing Wax

Finishing Wax

03-05-2013 03:00 AM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

For years I have been using a wax as the last coat over my finish and never really thought about brand until I made some tests. First let me say I have used just about every over-the-counter paste wax known to the retail marrket: Johnson Paste Wax, Butcher’s, Minwax, Liberon, Renaissance, BriWax, etc, etc. All seemed to do the job but while finishing a project for my wife, I decided to do a little test to see which one gave the highest sheen after steel wooling the finished varnish. I ...

excellent customer service

excellent customer service

03-03-2013 10:20 PM by DAC | 4 comments »

I had some issues getting it not to orange peel and solved that then bubbles. I tlaked to Tom at the factory and he was more than helpful. We discussed tempuarte, drying times, and the type and brand of spray gun. As my Iwata is about 10 years old it is not up to doing the water based products. It is a gravity fed gun and built in the days when oil based is all you could get. I have 4 tip sizes. 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 all of which do a fine job on oil based products. Drying time is an issue,...

BIG surprise in a little kit!

BIG surprise in a little kit!

02-02-2013 05:55 PM by Kumasan79 | 5 comments »

Some friends wanted to update their kitchen by refinishing their oak cabinets.They asked me about the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformation product.To say the least I was skeptical and nervous.I didn’t want to “paint” over good solid oak.I didn’t want to mess up their cabinets.But they were willing to give it a try and my motto is “You live here so what you say is what you get.” They picked their color and off we went. The system itself is very easy if you ha...

Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...
