Eagle America's customer service surprised me... in a bad way.

Eagle America's customer service surprised me... in a bad way.

12-01-2018 06:17 AM by WorksInTheory | 15 comments »

Well, I had been eyeing some spiral carbide sets to upgrade my router bits. Had been shopping between Infinity and Eagle America. They both had similar holiday sales though executed slightly different. I settled on Eagle America because I do believe that they put together their sets more thoughtfully and ultimately better price value. However when I went to create my basket and use the promo code I ran into an issue. The 5 piece carbide set did not take the promo. I tried all the other set...

Purple Power cleaner is great for cleaning blades & bits

Purple Power cleaner is great for cleaning blades & bits

11-09-2018 03:15 PM by shawnn | 6 comments »

I choked when I saw the price of some of the specialty products for blade/bit cleaning, being poor (cheap!), so I tried other common cleaners. I tried Simple Green, some orange stuff and other household cleaning products and nothing compared to Purple Power cleaner/degreaser. $5 a GALLON and it’ll clean everything just test first for color fastness. I’ll trade a bit of elbow grease to save cash, and with this stuff not much elbow grease is required. I spritz some on, let it sit a...

DIY Mini-split in my Garage

DIY Mini-split in my Garage

11-04-2018 10:09 PM by Breeze73 | 8 comments »

I installed the MrCool 24K DIY unit in my garage about 2 years ago. While I was doing my research in this system I saw that there was little feedback from those who have pulled the trigger. I bought mine from Ingram’s and posted a review there. But, I will save you the hassle of looking there and post a copy here: This unit has been A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! It wasn’t the easiest thing in the world to install as I wanted to install the air handler on one wall of my 800 sqft garage and th...

Deck demolition tool

Deck demolition tool

11-01-2018 04:45 PM by LesB | 6 comments »

I recently decided to replace my 1200 square foot, 22 year old, cedar deck with low maintenance composition decking so I searched for a tool to remove the old deck. I found several tools of similar design but I chose this particular tool because of the nail pulling cleats on the end of each pry lever. The tool straddles the deck joists (up to 3.5” wide) and the 44 inch handle makes prying the deck boards almost effortless. If you have ever tried to extract 3” galvanized nails fro...

Make the Ferrari of shooting boards

Make the Ferrari of shooting boards

10-29-2018 10:22 PM by ColonelTravis | 14 comments »

I’ve been using a totally handmade shooting board that’s worked fine (although it didn’t work great for 45s but that was my fault.) In the near future, I have some things to make that require odd angles, and I didn’t know off hand how I was going to do that, plus my 45s were not coming out right without constant adjustments, so when I saw this fence for the first time I said – screw it, I’m buying this thing. The fence has only been available for a few m...

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

10-23-2018 04:39 PM by EarlS | 8 comments »

I bought several sheets of FastCap Kaizen foam to use to organize my tool drawers after seeing pictures of it on Rockler’s website. I really like the way that I’m able to keep all of the tools displayed and organized so I know where they belong when I clean up the shop. I give it 4 stars rather than 5 because of the lack of instructions on how to properly work with the foam. The pictures on label don’t qualify as instructions. Rockler’s price and free shipping ma...

Meterk, NeJe, etc. 1500mW Laser Engraver

Meterk, NeJe, etc. 1500mW Laser Engraver

10-17-2018 07:00 PM by Andybb | 6 comments »

I grabbed this machine off of Amazon using a $100 gift card that I had. I also did a little research on these. They are inexpensive because they are made using the stripped down laser and transport systems built into a gazillion blu-ray and cd burners with virtually no modification other than the circuit board. They are basically all the same, so Neje, Meterek, Qiilo, Sixdu, Decaker…etc. same guts. This one came with software that says Neje on it, so it’s generic. Here is a v...

vonHanke Branding Iron

10-15-2018 03:02 PM by CL810 | 7 comments »

I had been thinking about purchasing a branding iron when I stumbled on a thread about electric vs non-electric branding irons. I was quite surprised to see the last post from Martin vonHanke offering a branding iron to the first responder willing to write a review. After visiting his website I decided to take him up on his offer. Martin was quick to mention that I should write an honest review; if there was anything I didn’t like to report it. And I will, though it is minor. S...

Cen-Tech Digital High Resolution Inspection Camera

Repairing stringed instruments, now that I own one of these, I wonder how I got along without it in the past, using long handled mirrors and such. And repairing my larger woodworking tools, those with things like complicated control boxes, looking into my planer dust collector, this is really nice. I was told by a mechanic that I know who owns one that you should pop for the more expensive one. Not only is the resolution much better, the taking of still pictures and videos is very helpfu...
