Scroll Saw Comfort Knobs

Scroll Saw Comfort Knobs

06-21-2017 08:04 PM by Triumph1 | 4 comments »

I picked up a set of these after reading Woodmaster1’s review of them. I also tracked down the YouTube video he spoke of. The seller of the comfort knobs is Marcus Bailey. Marcus is probably one of the nicest people I have emailed/spoke to. Very helpful and he sent the knobs out right away. I received them in three days. I have an Excalibur 21” scroll saw so the original knob design is a bit different than the DeWalt knobs. That being said it still only took about 20 minutes ...

Budget spiral cutterhead upgrade for 6" jointer

Budget spiral cutterhead upgrade for 6" jointer

06-20-2017 03:44 AM by Mike_D_S | 8 comments »

Short story: Fits Delta 37-190, easy to install. Only put about 20 bf across it so far, but cut quality is very good. I’m giving it five stars due to the cut quality, but the instructions were marginal but usable. Long Story:I’ve been wanting to upgrade my jointer to a spiral head for a while, but couldn’t bring myself to drop the nearly $400 on my older Delta 37-190. The Delta is a quality machine and with a few minor tweaks around adding a port for dust collection, I...

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

06-05-2017 11:11 PM by jonah | 8 comments »

I love just about everything about this multi pack of clamp racks… except the pipe clamp rack. I don’t have any pipe clamps. Honestly, I wish I could have gotten a decent deal on a 2-pack, rather than the 3-pack. I wanted a parallel clamp rack and an f-style clamp rack, and this pack was the lowest cost option to get those two. The alternative was to get a 3-pack of either the f-style or the parallel rack and a single of the other one, or to get two singles. Amazon didn’t ha...

CRC 3-36 Multi-Purpose Lubricant and Corrosion prevention

CRC 3-36 Multi-Purpose Lubricant and Corrosion prevention

05-31-2017 08:11 PM by newwoodbutcher | 15 comments »

Granted we don’t have major moisture or rust issues in Southern California but untreated metal still does rust here. For the rust prevention process in my shop the first few years, I used Camellia Oil to prevent rust on hand tools and cast iron surfaces. It worked “OK” and it was expensive (about $15.00 for an 8 oz bottle). It went a long way but still. I used it dutifully with a kind of cool applicator that came with the first bottle I bought. Still there were these seemingly insignific...

Woodcraft customer service

Woodcraft customer service

05-13-2017 03:57 PM by jtriggs | 12 comments »

I wanted to give a thumbs up to Woodcraft’s customer service. Here’s my story. I have bought many pen kits from Woodcraft and over the last year I’ve been trying to find a click pen kit that my wife would like. Most pens are too big and heavy for her. I bought a couple Wall Street click pen kits and everything went OK until I tested them after assembly. One of them stopped working very quickly. The pen wouldn’t stay extended. The same thing happened on a specialty w...

Great Little Lock

Great Little Lock

05-12-2017 05:01 PM by Ron Aylor | 11 comments »

I needed a lock for my recent William & Mary Prie Dieu build. Woodcraft of Atlanta came through for me with the JG Eldelen Full Mortise Chest Lock (Item No. 130261). Easily installed, very sturdy with smooth operation; a great little lock. I did not use the strike plate in my installation, as I opted for a handmade angled wooden version. If you chose to use the strike plate, do so with care, as it is very thin and bends easily. The escutcheon looks really nice, especially with the Wil...

Wireless garage-door security

I needed a reasonably priced, automatic garage door closer, preferably wireless. This product has been used on my Arizona garage, for 3 years. And it still is as good as new, except for replacement of an occasional 9 volt battery. http://www.protectrix.com/

Man what a store! Kid in the candy store is the only apt description. Super friendly help and just a wonderful experience. Worth a special trip if you are looking for tools and even reasonably close. I will be going back too.

Amazingly easy, accurate guide rail square.

Amazingly easy, accurate guide rail square.

03-21-2017 09:00 PM by ihadmail | 12 comments »

First off, I was not in any way compensated or solicited for this review. I purchased this product at full retail price from the manufacturers website. I saw a review here on LJ for the TSO Products GRS-16, and I immediately knew I had to have one. I have been relying on very careful measurements on both ends of the cut and extremely careful placement of the rail for my Makita track saw. Then I measure from the back of the rail to the edge of the sheet on both ends and make adjustments....
