Great lighting for shop at amazing price

Great lighting for shop at amazing price

01-19-2018 01:39 PM by pauljuilleret | 5 comments »

A short time ago I purchased a four pack of these bulbs ($30.99) for my shop I was replacing 150 watt equivalent CFL lamps After screwing in the first bulb it was amazing in the difference it made so much so that I went in and ordered another four pack to complete my lighting up grade. after the up grade was complete the shop is like I moved it out to the back yard on a bright sunny day. They come on as soon as you throw the switch with no warm up needed. I even replaced the little screw...

Festool MFT3 has essentially replaced my table saw sled for crosscuts.

Festool MFT3 has essentially replaced my table saw sled for crosscuts.

01-16-2018 05:24 AM by Mike_D_S | 10 comments »

So first off, I’m not a Festool guy. While I can see the value of having a “system” I think their pricing is not always aligned with the actual value delivered. For me, the MFT3 multifunction table is one of those love hate things. I have a friend who has one and all he does is tell me how great it is, how easy it is to use, how it helped him grow new hair for his bald spot, yada yada yada. So I had picked up a Makita track saw to break down sheet goods when I’...

Hi friendsI ordered these Head Mount Magnifier with LED Head Light a couple months ago since I planned on starting an online carving class I thought it would help see the details of smaller carvings and I found they work great, for a 70-year-old guy I have pretty good vision I’m even able to read small print on medication bottles etc,but I found these somewhat funny looking glasses to not only magnifies (5 different strength lenses) very well but it adds a lot of light right were your ...

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

12-29-2017 02:10 AM by Walker | 6 comments »

I’m writing this review because there doesn’t seem to be very much information around on the Striplox woodworking products. I stumbled upon these connectors while designing a future project. I wanted a modern look with completely hidden joints. It appears they are a fairly new product. To my delight they were available at my local Woodcraft store and are relatively cheap, so I purchased a pack to play around with. The clerk was actually surprised they had them and wasn’...

Right Angle Screwdriver

Right Angle Screwdriver

12-21-2017 12:17 AM by Ron Aylor | 17 comments »

I was in the need of a small right angle screwdriver that would work in a tight space. Found this at Harbor Freight for less than four dollars. This simple little tool isn’t fancy, but has a nice feel and the ratchet appears to be durable. The set comes with six different heads. Thanks again, Harbor Freight!

Veritas Inset Vise

Veritas Inset Vise

12-18-2017 09:28 PM by DreganTepis | 5 comments »

Item Page I’ve been asked several times about this vise, as it’s been seen in my pictures. So I decided to write this up. Installation was very easy! A router with a fence and a long straight bit will have this installed in under an hour. Just use the included dimensions, and don’t forget the through-holes so dust has somewhere to go. I’ve used this on 4 projects now since installing it last summer. The multiple jaws (including ones you can make) are great, th...

Jet 10/20 plus drum sander, save your money!

Jet 10/20 plus drum sander, save your money!

11-24-2017 02:30 AM by DonCiem | 16 comments »

When I purchased and first used this tool, it was a love affair. I first used it to produce a supply of 1/8” red oak sheets that I used to reface our existing kitchen cabinets. After that was complete I used it for a variety of small projects. (I run a home shop, not a commercial shop, so the projects were varied.) After less than 50 t0 100 hours of use, disaster. The lead threads/lead screw design failed. The lead threads in the the soft aluminum sanding drum cover casting stripp...

UJK Parf Guide System

UJK Parf Guide System

11-22-2017 03:16 PM by Bobmedic | 11 comments »

The UJK Parf Guide System is an excellent system for creating custom cutting stations and bench tops. (Think Festool MFT.) The system was invented by Peter Parfitt (New Britt Workshop) and in conjunction with Axminster Tools and Machinery this system was brought to market. It is a system that allows you to drill bench dog holes in a perfectly square grid to aid in cutting with a track saw or it even helps with assembly and clamping. I used this system to create a mobile workbench and a custom...

Unable to fill promised order

Unable to fill promised order

11-17-2017 03:07 PM by boberko | 24 comments »

Totally frustrating experience. Ordered 8/4 Zebra wood. Got the lengths wrong I can live with it. Got the thickness wrong, I can’t use the material. Called and sent a pic of the error. They promised to get the correct order out that day. Waited a week – heard nothing. Checked on my ticket and it was marked completed. Called again and they said they had forgot – would get it out that day. Waited, all they have done is sent a return label for the incorrect order. They&...
