Save your back Pick up and reack tool

I have to do all my wood working sitting down and seem to be dropping things a lot lately so having to get out of my chair to pick things up is murder for me.I was at Harbor Freight the other day and saw this $3 picker upper tool so thought I would try it out and man it works a charm!!!!!It’s very lite not made to pick up big stuff but things like a pencil or my small model parts it’s a winner big time.Have no idea how long it will last but the minute it dies I’ll be getting...

sharkguard

sharkguard

06-04-2017 05:25 PM by michelletwo | 22 comments »

installed my sharkguard without a hitch. Simple , and very well made product. I had no riving knife, or cover on my saw. I used it for 30 yrs just a blade sticking up . When I found this product I ordered it immediately and I am glad I had the sense to do so. Lee was good to work with and if I ever need any of his products , I will not hesitate to order from him again.

Great Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

Great Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

04-11-2017 06:27 PM by CharlesA | 12 comments »

I listen to lots of podcasts, and I especially like to listen to them while I woodwork. These 3M Worktunes headphones are just what the doctor ordered. As hearing protection they work well: block out the sound and are quite comfortable. Add to that the ability to listen to FM/AM/Aux/Bluetooth. I use the radio a bit. It is pretty basic, a manual tuning wheel—works adequately. I haven’t used the auxiliary cable hookup. Where they shine is the bluetooth capability. I find podcast...

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

03-26-2017 02:25 PM by Tennessee | 6 comments »

I have had numerous respirators over the years, with various cartridges, and a couple things have always bothered me about most.First, many of them don’t allow me to wear glasses properly, since the nose piece sticks up too high, causing my glasses to sit wrong and make my eyesight off.Second, those doggone elastic straps always, always get stretched out and hard, and now that most have gone to the cheap plastic hooks, the problem is worse. Sealing with these stretched out is almost imp...

Big Quality of Life Improvement

Big Quality of Life Improvement

06-17-2016 07:02 PM by jonah | 15 comments »

I’ve been wearing plane jane, relatively cheap hearing protection for a long time. I have several different pairs, including a pretty comfortable 3M pair that I like. However, I had always wanted some way to play music while working in the shop. The wireless headphone + hearing protectors were always too much money (> $100) for me. Until I saw that Amazon had a lightning deal in December for this 3M Worktunes Wireless. I jumped on it for $65. The very same pair costs $85 at Home Depo...

A comfortable Dust Mask RZ Mask

A comfortable Dust Mask RZ Mask

03-26-2016 01:57 AM by gpastor | 7 comments »

I really don’t like wearing dust masks in the shop. I try to catch the dust right off the Machine and try not to let it go airborne. I have tried just about all types of masks being dust mask or respirators and I never liked any of them. Some of them made me feel claustrophobic, sweaty and just terribly and comfortable. And none of them have ever been safety glass friendly. Either fogging up the glasses or having straps interfere with the temple sides. And I don’t care to s...

Good and Even Versitle, With Effort

Good and Even Versitle, With Effort

02-09-2016 09:49 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

I use these on my cabinet saw, band saw and router table. Once set in place and locked down, they hold their position well. I could replace the plastic, expanding slides that lock in the miter track with aluminum ones I have in my jig accessory box, but, for now it would be more cosmetic than necessary. These go on working well enough, though they don’t release their grip as well as my aluminum ones. For those with a right tilt table saw, a band saw and a router table, you need on...

My favorite Reader Safety Glasses so Far

My favorite Reader Safety Glasses so Far

01-07-2016 04:57 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I’ve been surprised at how much I dislike the fit of most safety glasses. Maybe I have an odd head/nose, but most fit oddly and are not comfortable for long periods of time. One complication is that I require readers lenses. I only require 2.0 or 2.5, but i prefer using 3.0 because I figure if I’m going to have some magnification, I might as well really have some benefit from it. Up to this point, my favorite safety glasses have been 3M Tekk safety glasses, but I couldn̵...

Now a standard part of my workflow

Now a standard part of my workflow

I have been using the Jessem Clear Cut TS Stock Guides for about two months now on my table saw and I felt it was time for a review. These are similar in concept to their Clear Cut Stock Guides for the router table but they have some unique differences that make them significantly better. First, let’s start with unboxing and installation. The guides are beautifully packaged and come with the guides themselves fully assembled. I have a SawStop PCS with the T-Glide fence onto which you...

Not what you expect

Not what you expect

10-29-2015 12:50 PM by fuigb | 16 comments »

These googles are presented by Lee Valley as combing function and form: comprehensive eye protection (though “not certified for industrial use”) and a “cool retro look.” The look IS cool, if that is at all important, and the youngsters in your life are sure to point out that you resemble a Minion from the kids’ movie Despicable Me. Giving the children a laugh is about as much satisfaction as you can expect from these googles. I’m a hobbyist, an evening...
