Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

07-26-2011 06:05 AM by coloradoclimber | 3 comments »

Like most of you guys and gals, when I get a chance to run out into the shop off I skedaddle. If I do think ahead I change into my grubby jeans and tee shirt, if I don’t think ahead I start working in whatever good clothes I’m wearing. And probably like most of you when my hands get dirty, or if I get glue on my fingers, or finish, or whatever, I just wipe them on my jeans, or shirt tail, whatever piece of cloth that is handy. Not Anymore !!! No more tracking glue and shavin...

Keep the wet stuff off the dry stuff.

Keep the wet stuff off the dry stuff.

Happen to be in the paint department of the local big box store and saw these little beauties. They will fit on all cans, pint,quart, gallon all you have to do is clip them on the inner rim of the can. I tried them on a little can of of sealcoat and it works perfectly. No spilling or finishing going down the side of the can. Cost around 99 cents.

Central Machinery Mobile Base

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.

Pegboard Hooks that stay put

Pegboard Hooks that stay put

05-08-2011 03:08 PM by brtech | 3 comments »

It’s a given, the hooks for pegboard come out when you try to take your tool off the hook. You just learn to live with the problem. Sure, good hooks work better than cheap hooks, but the all have the same basic problem. Not these. These are beefy plastic hooks that have one angled peg and one straight peg. You hold the hook at an angle, push in the angled pin, rotate the hook until it’s straight and push in the straight hook. They fit in the pegboard very tightly. In fac...

Tame the Waterstone Mess: A Simple Solution

Gang, This tray from McMaster (http://www.mcmaster.com/#food-service-trays/=bwr90d) will improve your life and make you a better person. A small one is $15 and a godzilla sized one is $35. Here’s how: —It is a waterproof tray whose antiskid surface will perfectly and TOTALLY immobilize a waterstone.—The low lip on the edge of the tray is lower than the top of most waterstones, so you won’t bang your blades or hands into its edges (I have Nortons and here is ...

Decent Sander for the Price (using Coupon)

Decent Sander for the Price (using Coupon)

01-14-2011 10:47 PM by Denappy | 15 comments »

Found a Harbor Freight coupon for this in the latest issue of Wood Magazine for $49.95 (lists for $99.99), so I thought I would run down to my local Harbor Freight and check out the “floor model”. After looking it over I decided to go ahead and make the purchase. It unpacked easily and was a breeze to setup. Basically just have to attached the table. For the most part this is a pretty decent machine for the price, good cast iron parts except for the table and the disk; which ...

Simple Green PRO HD excells at cleaning saw blades

Simple Green PRO HD excells at cleaning saw blades

12-06-2010 09:46 PM by pintodeluxe | 16 comments »

I heard that soaking carbide tipped blades in simple green can leach carbide from the metal. I emailed simple green and a rep confirmed that the standard simple green should not be used to soak carbide tipped blades. He recommended two other simple green products that have no such problem: 1. Simple Green Pro HD 2. Simple Green Aircraft parts cleaner I found the simple green Pro HD at my local Home Depot. It is the purple stuff and is sold in a 1 gallon concentrate for around $13. I...

Another full face shield

Another full face shield

07-19-2010 02:34 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" 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...

Great dust mask

Great dust mask

07-19-2010 06:30 AM by longgone | 12 comments »

All I can say is this is one great dust hood. I have used numerous dust masks over the years from the basic cheap disposable masks, the replacable cartridge masks and now this air shield pro dust hood. I do alot of grinding and sanding and have been making more dust than ever lately.The air shield pro is a unit that keeps the dust out of my lungs most importantly…but it also is effective in that no dust gets in my eyes… no more burning watering eyes due to dust.Reviews of earlier ...
