2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

01-30-2011 01:53 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

I am always on the lookout for quality products at a low price. Since I started turning I have been looking for power sanding accessories that are a better value than what is available through Woodcraft. After quite a bit of searching and comparing I finally decided to give 2Sand.com a shot. After my 1st test drive of their Blue Micron Bowl Sanding Discs I am really impressed! Price When comparing price to Woodcraft there is not comparison. A 5 disc pack Hook & Loop discs from Woodc...

BowlSaw

BowlSaw

01-31-2009 03:43 PM by DougTx | 10 comments »

I had a very good experience with the 6” BowlSaw. The pictures show a black walnut blank that I now have a bowl and another piece that can be turned into a smaller bowl and/or a box. I followed the instructions included with the tool and did not have any problems. I started at 120 rpms and finished at 400 rpms. Will probably get the 8” tool and thus can core larger blanks and possibly make 3 bowl out of one blank.DougTx

A better mouse trap.....

A better mouse trap.....

12-27-2009 12:18 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I received the Sorby Sandmaster from my children as a Christmas present. On the surface you might think “Why do I need a tool for sanding a bowl?” I normally use regular sandpaper (Norton or 3M) for finishing my bowls; this however turned out to be a whole different story. I found that I am not seeing the wonderful concentric circles from the sandpaper scratches and I don’t believe I’m getting much if any heat buildup. I just completed a crotch maple bowl this mornin...

Thompson Lathe Tools a Mixed Bag

Thompson Lathe Tools a Mixed Bag

03-25-2016 07:57 PM by JimChrisawn | 2 comments »

I would like to give a brief review of a mixed bag of Doug Thompson lathe tools, handles and tool steel blanks.Let me begin by saying right up front Doug in NO way influenced this review and I was not compensated in an way for this review unless…Unless great customer service, quality tools, and a business owner who will actually take time to share his experience and listen to yours in an honest open way is to be considered compensation. As can be seen in the picture I have a few Thom...

Segmented Turning, A Good Beginning  by Bill Kandler

Segmented Turning, A Good Beginning by Bill Kandler

06-08-2011 04:17 PM by Bluepine38 | 2 comments »

8iowa mentioned Bill Kandler’s book in one of his posts, and since I was ready to start on segmentedturning and was trying to design a miter sled, I checked out his site. He not only had a miter sled, but hegave a free download of it’s design and how to build it. Naturally, like any woodworker, (we all seem to thinkwe can boil water better than the next guy syndrome) I am tweaking it to suit myself. Bill gives this awayin spite of the fact that he wants to sell you the complete...

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

06-21-2013 07:18 PM by Nick_R | 4 comments »

*UPDATE* After using these tools for a few months and turning lots of stuff I have found a reason to complain.. But really these are great tools and seem to live up to marketing however the edges do not last as long as you might think, They do not stay super sharp and then one day become dull. It is an over time degradation so you reach a point where the tool is not dull but not really sharp either… You have to debate on whether to turn the blade and what happens is you don’t t...

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

12-09-2016 10:02 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

I finally ordered one of these collet systems from PSI because it has more range than the collets I how have and they can be used in the wood lathe or the metal lathe .All the collets came wrapped in plastic bags and oiled and the whole set is in a red plastic box. The collet holder is threaded for 1”-8 and it has a 3/4- 16 adapter for use on a mini lathe too.I thought the best way to evaluate them was to use an indicator and check for run out with a ground pin of the nominal sizes of t...

Easywoodtools faceplate

Easywoodtools faceplate

05-09-2011 06:05 PM by hairy | 4 comments »

This deserves more than 5 stars. High quality at a good price. Item F625 I got myself in a situation where I needed 2 faceplates at the same time. The other in the second picture is made by Don Pencil, another very good one. I looked around the web and decided on this one. Woodcraft had it at the exact same price that easywoodtools did, so I cut out the middleman. It was on my front porch almost 24 hours after I ordered it. It came from Lexington, Ky. That’s about a 2 hour driv...

Great starter set into turning

Great starter set into turning

12-01-2015 02:21 PM by jshroyer | 4 comments »

My roommate and i have had a lathe for around a year now and only had the old tools that came with it. they were not very good and we didnt use it much because its a bit much to start with. i had been reading about carbide tools for some time but the cost it what kept me away. I saw the rockler set was on sale for $100 over the US thanksgiving weekend so thought it might be worth the try. I am very impressed already! so much easier to use! Other item that people talk about is how you cant sha...

Excellent Customer Service

Excellent Customer Service

08-04-2015 03:15 PM by Julian | 5 comments »

I recently made another purchase for carbide cutters from Captain Eddie. Long story short; the post office lost my package/envelope from Capt. Eddie. I contacted him and he graciously said he would send out another shipment at no extra cost. I was not expecting him to do that. The postal service was the one to blame. I definitely will continue to purchase from Big Guy Productions.
