Craftsman sandpaper kit

Craftsman sandpaper kit

07-20-2012 08:47 PM by AJswoodshop | 8 comments »

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

12-30-2008 01:31 PM by motthunter | 7 comments »

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...

FN Bandana by Blu Dragon Enterprises

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...

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...

Don't Eat this cookie,

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...

Inexpensive over the shoulder shop Apron

Inexpensive over the shoulder shop Apron

01-27-2012 10:58 PM by TechRedneck | 6 comments »

When I am in the shop, I want to have my essential small tools handy. Pencil, small square, DC Remote, Marker, Marking Gauge, tape measure, Center rule and whatever. I started with a cheap cotton apron that came over the neck and tied in the back. When I added tools it became a little heavy and dug into the back of my neck. I wanted an apron that came over the shoulders and was easy to put on and take off. This seems to fit my needs with a few exceptions. Likes: 1. Heavy cotton with...

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface:  Evaluation and Testing

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface: Evaluation and Testing

09-27-2012 05:37 PM by djg | 6 comments »

The DC1100 PRO (with Serial Interface) is a true laser particle counter with the ability to count particulate mater suspended the air. There are two size ranges for the PRO model: between 0.5 and 2.5 microns, and greater than 2.5 microns. Several models are available but I felt that for a woodworking shop the stuff less than 2.5 microns was the most important particulate to measure since it is probably the most dangerous. This was purchased through a group buy offered by the Canadian woo...

Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig

A few people asked me to do a review on my dovetail jig, so I thought I would do a review of my Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig. It’s a amazing jig, I’ve used it a few times and it is very handy to have. Positives--Includes the 4210 half blind template, and the 4212 through dovetail template. Each template works just how it should and I’m very happy with the results. -The straight bit and dovetail bit (1/2’’ shank) are included with the jig and they are very ni...
