Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

09-11-2010 10:03 PM by Elizabeth | 13 comments »

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Never Again!!!

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

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

Protect Your Ears

Protect Your Ears

10-31-2008 02:26 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 10 comments »

Recently one my posts came up where I talked about ZEM hearing protection. At the time I was amazing at how well they worked. It’s been over a year now of using them, and I won’t use anything else now. They are very comfortable to wear, for long periods if needed. They are lightweight and don’t have to go “deep” into the ear canal. The foam earpieces just enter the outside of the ear canal. They really don’t feel like they are in your ear, like other earplugs. I’m not sure if I can r...

An Honest Review of the MicroJig GB-1 Push Block

An Honest Review of the MicroJig GB-1 Push Block

12-30-2014 05:52 AM by ontheworkbench | 5 comments »

I received this as a gift this holiday season, and not from MicroJig. I got a chance to test it out and much to my surprise, it really does live up to the hype that I see on-line. Compared to my old smaller push blocks, this one is larger, has extra push feet, and an accessory mount to provide extra shielding from a saw blade or a router bit. Pros:-Griping surface really grabs the wood-Push feet drop with gravity-Ergonomic handle Cons:-Could be too large from some applications-If not ca...

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...

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

09-10-2013 03:50 AM 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’...

Good personal filter, but disappointing

Good personal filter, but disappointing

01-09-2010 07:06 PM by Chris Wright | 14 comments »

This system was purchased when we started up our turning program with the patients from Walter Reed with the intent that if someone needed better filtration then just a dust mask. During operation it provides excellent filtration and fresh air along with the obvious face protection one likes when turning. The motor is quiet so you’re not deafened by the constant hum of a fan near your ear. However, it does fail in a few respects. The battery takes a while to charge and the last time...

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

08-17-2013 12:35 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

while cruising through my local woodworking source store, I was in need of safety glasses to use in the work shop to replace my more bulkier goggles. Up popped these guys. What’s interesting is that the sub-lens (whatever they are called?) are 3x magnification. Handy as I am starting to have issues seeing things upclose. Figured, other LJ’s would be interested in something like this as well.Official title: CatEyesSG-AF-MAG3.0Diopter Anti-Fog$6.99 They also have 1.5x and ...

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...
