FN Bandana by Blu Dragon Enterprises

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...

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 ...

Chain Hoist-Little helper

Chain Hoist-Little helper

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...

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

Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig

12-26-2012 02:17 PM by AJswoodshop | 6 comments »

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...

A great little tool every shop should have (Temp/Hum gauge)

A great little tool every shop should have (Temp/Hum gauge)

11-20-2014 01:30 AM by Jeff Mazur | 6 comments »

Not much to say about this, just wanted to share my latest and probably cheapest shop acquisition. This AcuRite Temperature and Humidity Monitor cost me $10 at HD, has a clearly readable LCD display, shows current relative humidity, current temperature, hi/lo for each over last 24 hours, and gives you your choice of F or C display. For mounting, it has a spring-loaded belt-clip type device on the back with a pretty strong magnet built in (in the photo you see it mounted using just the magne...
