Prodex insulation for the garage door

Prodex insulation for the garage door

01-09-2010 07:08 AM by brianl | 9 comments »

Like most of the U.S., we’ve been having some really chilly weather lately. I do most of my work out of the garage and even with a space heater I’ve been getting pretty cold. I had a tube of liquid nails basically freeze up on me so I figured it was time to make some changes. Our garage door is a tight two-car made up of four rows of four panels. Each panel measuring roughly 21 inches high by four feet across making the door 7 feet high by 16 feet across. 112 square feet. ...

Central Machinery Mobile Base

Excellent base for your lighter machines. Not a cinch to put together but not bad either. Can’t find much I don’t like about it. Gave it four stars so as not to be accused unpatriotic. Buy USA product until you can’t afford them anymore.

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

12-27-2011 01:37 AM by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

02-03-2014 07:56 PM by Brett | 9 comments »

Have you ever noticed holes , neatly in a row, on the inside of many book cases and cabinets? Have you ever wondered how they might have gotten them so straight, and evenly spaced? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. I never really gave it much thought until I decided that I may want to attempt to build something that needed some adjustable shelving. This jig is one way that a do-it-yourselfer may be able to add those adjustable shelves to your project! It is a shelf pin drillin...

Wrist Attached 3.25"x2.25" Dry Erase Board

Wrist Attached 3.25"x2.25" Dry Erase Board

01-01-2016 10:43 PM by Holbs | 9 comments »

Just started to use this thing. It’s awesome :) Many times during a project, I have 5,000 numbers and fractions flying through my head. I go measure something and move to cut it, just to forget what that measurement was. Measure twice and cut once. This little pad helps a great deal. It’s only $11 and cheaply made, but it is what it is. Elastic band to go around your arm (or leg or whatever application) secured via velcro. Comes with dry erase marker with the little white ...

Lithonia T8 shop lights

Lithonia T8 shop lights

01-12-2016 04:45 AM by ic3ss | 9 comments »

This is my second attempt at shop lighting. I had picked up an LED fixture a couple of weeks ago but was generally unimpressed with light output and color. My review is here I took it back and ordered three of this fixture at HD, they delivered free to my house if I ordered three. At $22 per I figured I couldn’t go wrong. Well I got the three put up and bought some tubes for them I wanted to experiment a little with the color. All tubes are 2900 lumen at 32 watts. I bought two 5000K ...

Awesome lights. Low price

Awesome lights. Low price

07-05-2016 02:48 AM by vulgarviking | 9 comments »

So, I’ve been working in my shop for the past three years with a single 100 watt bulb and grew sick off how shitty the lighting was. So, I splurged and swapped out the single bulb fixture for an electrical outlet and had gotten 6 of these LED light fixtures to plug into (3 per side). And I must say, I’m VERY please with this upgrade! These things are great! At 30 watts a piece and 3200 luminaries (whatever the Hell that means) they light up my shop perfectly; which is only a 25&#...

Another full face shield

Another full face shield

07-19-2010 02:34 PM by Don Butler | 8 comments »

Greg the Whodat just posted his new face shield.I didn’t want to hijack his review, so I’m posting my own. Greg’s shield is a good one and the Triton PRA001 is probably more expensive. But I wanted to explain some of its advantages. Triton saw good to include earmuffs and they’re good one. They can be locked out away from the head for when you want to hear something and when putting the headgear on and off.There is no option for front or back battery location. It...

It retails for $19.99 but I got it on sale for $9.99. I would give it a 5 star rating! AJ
