How to clean your shop(and other places too)I have the blessed opportunity to use a very good friend’s shop whenever I want. There are two really good things about working there: 1) He has sattellite radio piped in. That means I can listen to 50’s music all day long. He was listening to it before I got there so there’s no battle on what station to set it on. He also likes gospel music from time to time which I also enjoy. A great environment, and a very gracious friend to...

For christmas my Grampa came and as a big present upgraded my shop. He bought me a craftsman stool and a kreg pocket hole jig. The craftsman stool was the first thing I saw and I loved it. Its ajustible so you can raise and lower the stool. Its $49.99 regular but he said he got it on sale for $29.99! Its a great stool and highly recomend it. 5 Stars. AJ

I do alot of sanding I find it fun. But my sandpaper was unorginized. I got the craftsman sandpaper kit and found it very useful. Not only it comes with a cool case for the sandpaper, it even comes with lots of sandpaper! I use this kit every day and very happy with the kit. Highly recomend buying it. It retails for $19.99 but I got it on sale for $9.99. I would give it a 5 star rating! AJ

Toastiest shop ever

Toastiest shop ever

I had debated for a long time to find the best solution to heat my garage shop at home. Forced air is no good since the filters will be clogged with dust all of the time, and a heater that burns the shop air has too many drawbacks including humidity control, possible fires, and consumption of oxygen in the room. I decided that whatever heater I get had to use outside air and vent outside. My choice was this radiant tube heater from SRP. I have it hung and in the photo was still testin...

Hey all, just want to show off my new “FN Banadana”!(Patent Pending) I know what you’re thinking and the “FN” doesn’t stand for what you think it does! It’s a Fitted Nose Banadana. Much like your dust masks in the shop, this bandana has a metal strip sewn in the center that you can form around your nose to keep from breathing the dust in. Designed by a motorcycle rider to keep from fogging up her glasses, the FN Bandana has many other uses as well:...

Useful shop apron (Arsenal)

Useful shop apron (Arsenal)

12-16-2012 08:23 PM by mbs | 7 comments »

I’ve never worn a shop apron before. I read a review on an apron here at LJ’s and it prompted me to look into them. I don’t have any affiliation with Arsenal. This apron is $20 bucks on Amazon. I’ve had it for a few months now and I’m not completely out of my bad habits of laying the tape down somewhere but I’m getting better about putting it my apron. Before I got the apron I spent a lot of time looking for pencils, tape measures, squares, and vario...

Fantastic quality, and great looks- but a big investment.

I recently got my hands on a pair of high end headphones. Since I listen to music and audiobooks in the workshop, and I know a lot of others here do too, I thought I’d give them a quick review… First off, they’re stunning. I mean, look at these suckers! That’s hand carved ebony, which immediately appeals to me as a woodworker. Wearing these around the shop just makes me look good! Each set has a different look, with its own unique grain pattern. They come in a high ...

I picked up this hoist to lift a jointer out of my truck. It worked great in both directions, it has a built in brake. The jointer I lifted is 260 lbs. I got on also for a grand total of 520 lbs. .......... it still worked smooth and the roof didnt cave in. I spread the weight across 3 garage joists and put 2×4 braces on both sides of the truck. ok ok so theres a little redneck in my family LOL. This hoist will work great for picking up shop equipment when needed. No need for 4 budd...

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...
