MJ Steel Splitter PRO

MJ Steel Splitter PRO

1509 days ago by JimDaddyO | 8 comments »

As an owner of an older, inheirited saw with no guards this was the best and easiest solution I have come across. The saw had the stock splitter/guard disposed of after my dad’s first use of the saw…it was not good and deserved being tossed. I only have room on my saw for a single steel tab, and not for the kerf keeper behind it. Even at that I had to drill into the iron top to accomodate the tab. This is a reflection of the saw and not the splitter. The instructions seemed ...

3M Respirator

3M Respirator

1471 days ago by mnorusis | 25 comments »

At the start of the first coat of lacquer I put on in preparing for finishing a desk project, I knew I would be buying a respirator immediately. The smell is aweful and while I’m not certain the safety risks of breathing it, I have read some pretty bad stories online about the fumes. I went to HomeDepot and decided to buy the best mask they had…so this was it. I did 0 research on masks, including for best model/price. This mask certainly does the job I needed it to do. Wh...

Ryobi Tek4 headphones....GREAT buy!

Ryobi Tek4 headphones....GREAT buy!

1441 days ago by Mark | 12 comments »

So this is a must buy! I had just purchased these at The Home Depot at $60 and its worth every penny! I thought they were just regular headphones with a built in radio but then I tried it on and turns out it doesnt have a radio but it shuts out loud noises and magnifies the small sounds! I tested it out and I could still hear my radio as I was running wood through my planer! AMAZING! And not only that but it comes with a 4V battery and charger! You can also connect your MP3 player to it to li...

Another winner for Harbor Freight

Another winner for Harbor Freight

These anti-fatigue floor mats are very inexpensive, especially when on sale 50% off. They are very easy to install , they fit very well, easy to clean and they look good. Of course I bought them for my comfort but more important I also bought them to save my tools. A Stanley plane or a chisel dropped on the concrete are dead meat, with the mats they have a fair chance to survive.Highly recommended.

Save your money and buy something else. It took me 3 pairs (two pictured), at almost $15 each, to learn my lesson. 1 Star is too high

Works well and Comfortable

Works well and Comfortable

I got this for my daughter from highlandwoodworking.com as she likes to help in the shop and will cover her ears with her hands everytime a power tool is turned on (very good). I want her to be able to help with jigsaw cuts and sanding and having the shopvac on while working with both so this is a must to have her focused on the work and not on the noise. The ear protection can be lengthened or shortened and the range can accommodate a 3-4 y/o on the short end and a small-medium adult on t...

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

700 days ago by ProDrawerCom | 8 comments »

9-21-2012: Other reviews on LumberJocks convinced me that the far less expensive version at Home Depot (the Ridgid brand) was the same product as the yellow MagSwitch. I’m in the middle of rough cutting plywood to build cabinets for my kitchen. Always wanted to try one of these because I believe in feather boards but just never get around to cutting some from wood. I really need them now. And I really need two because I’m cutting big stuff. I usually don’t ask clerks if they have a certain pr...

Ear muff / radio / MP3 player

Ear muff / radio / MP3 player

616 days ago by mbs | 7 comments »

I bought these ear muffs from Amazon for $60 after reading a review on LJ’s about another Howard Leight model. I really like them especially when I’m sanding. They protect my hearing and I can listen to music at the same time. They’re also very easy to find in the shop since they’re bright green. I scared myself when I looked in the mirror though because I was wearing a grey and pink dust mask with the bright green ear muffs and glasses. It’s quite a fashion ...

Floor mats are a good value but not the best I've used

Floor mats are a good value but not the best I've used

600 days ago by mbs | 7 comments »

I purchased two sets of floor mats from Rockler because they were on sale and I got free shipping. Each set was $20 for 20 square feet (6 pcs) which is pretty cheap at $1/sq. ft. I place them around my workbench but I don’t put them in front of my table saw because they could be a trip hazard. I’ve used these for years at my other shop so while I only gave them 4 stars, I like the value enough to buy them again. They provide some cushioning to the feet and protect tools that...

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

347 days ago by JohnnyB | 16 comments »

So what do lens implants have to do with woodworking? That’s easy to answer with another question. What does good vision have to do with woodworking? At age 69, I have had cataract surgery and lens implants for both eyes, and the improvement in my vision has been amazing. Dang cataracts sneak up on you. I was having trouble reading the graduations on my rules. Things looked hazy, and cleaning my glasses did not help. Driving was becoming problematic. In the shop, sometimes I wasn’...
