Great way to organize drawers full of tools

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

10-23-2018 04:39 PM by EarlS | 5 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 | 2 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...

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

09-07-2018 03:22 PM by Tennessee | 1 comment »

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...

Solid, accurate dowel plate

Solid, accurate dowel plate

08-27-2018 06:17 PM by EarlS | 9 comments »

I finally broke down and bought this dowel plate because the dowels and plugs available on-line or at the local wood store are only nominally close to being round and accurate in the diameter. I use the dowel plate to properly size plugs that come out of the drill press plug bit to the correct diameter. I also run short lengths of store bought dowels through the plate to correct diameter inconsistencies and roundness issues. The dowel plate is set into the vise with a baggy under it to...

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...
