I decided to clean my Infinity saw blade with CMT and I like the results. It was quick as well. CMT Formula 2050.

Review of Powertec T-Tracks - Save 50% over Rockler T-Tracks

Review of Powertec T-Tracks - Save 50% over Rockler T-Tracks

07-25-2018 10:06 AM by Dan Thomas | 23 comments »

[EDIT] Apparently, I misunderstood the “review” category. So please forgive me for only pointing to my YouTube video. Here’s a more comprehensive review. The only t-tracks I’ve used in the past have been from Rockler. 3/4” wide, 3/8” thick, and made from aluminum. They work great, and if you buy them on sale, they’re not too terribly expensive. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed on Amazon that Powertec has t-tracks that appear to be virtually iden...

Craftsmans' Delight

Craftsmans' Delight

07-20-2018 08:56 PM by AandCstyle | 8 comments »

I work mostly in the Craftsman /Arts & Crafts/Stickley style. The furniture in the house was mostly original and, oftentimes, was in the house when Stickley lived there. I was hoping to see a great banister design that I would be able to use in my home, but my last name doesn’t start with an “S”. The really amazing thing is that after Stickley sold the house only one family lived in the house before it was converted into a museum and they made almost no changes to th...

CraftsmanHardware.com is a Customer Service Hero. Far too many times I’ve ordered items USPS priority or next day air only to have the order languish for several days before even getting processed for shipment, thereby completely negating my costly efforts to get said item at my doorstep in a timely manner. I ordered some Mission style cabinet door pulls from this outfit last Wednesday. Imagine my surprise when they showed up in my mailbox on Friday. These folks got my order out t...

One was a solution to the other

Decided I’d try some dowel joinery for the first time and ended up with this jig. Budget was tight and I figured all I really needed was something to keep my drill bit perpendicular to the board if my marking was careful and precise, so I picked up this dowel jig and the drill stop set to go with it. All-in I paid $20 on Amazon, plus dowel pins. It was cheap. Below is my experience with the device and my solutions to its shortcomings along the way. Skip to the bottom for a summary....

Kreg Drawer Slide Jig

Kreg Drawer Slide Jig

05-01-2018 12:16 PM by scribble | 0 comments »

I finally got around to using these after they sat in my workbench for several months. I will say they do a good job as long as everything is straight to begin with. I built a small drill press rolling cabinet and used it to install my drawer slides. When using with a face frame it helps for the face frame stiles to be taller than 3/4” so the clamps have more meat to grab a hold of. I think the spot that these shine the best is in mounting the drawer to the slides by supporting the ...

Wow what a bummer

Wow what a bummer

I waited patiently for my YAS slab master to arrive all was well . It arrived on schedule and in great shape . Once assembled we realized that the machine was wired for AUS-EURo 415v 3 phase . Once I realized that the options I had were a 3500.00 transformer or a new motor for 1400.00 I choose the later . I placed emails to YAS and the only response I have gotten to date after 12 emails is ” I will review and get back to you” Now 6 weeks later I can’t even get a returned ca...

Almost perfect handheld CNC

Almost perfect handheld CNC

You can find more information here. These are still on pre-order/fulfillment. I received mine and have been learning to use it. I do not have space in mu shop for a table/gantry style CNC machine, however I want to be able to do CNC type cuts. The Shaper Origin seems to be a (nearly) perfect solution. I have also included an example of my most recent project. This CNC is not a full 3D unit, at most it is 2.5D. Pros:Small compact unit, stores away in a systainer. When used correctly the ...

Kreg hinge jig ok with one major annoying flaw

Kreg hinge jig ok with one major annoying flaw

04-09-2018 03:24 AM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

So I had a home made jig for installing concealed hinges that i managed to misplace. I happened to be in the Woodcraft and saw the Kreg jig, so i figured I’d give it a try as the price was pretty good. So after installing a dozen doors worth of hinges, I have some hints and one major gripe about the jig. The good:It’s easy to use. The guide keeps the forstner bit perpendicular with out much effort.Consistent placement is easy to achieve.The price is right. The hints:Kee...
