Yep, I got taken. Well, to be fair, I received what I paid for. Perhaps you’ve heard the siren-song of woodworkers showing how you can quit your day job and make $150K per year selling stuff you make in your shop. Well, against my better judgment, in a weak moment I paid the $37 for the book and plans download. If you didn’t have access to the internet and you’d never seen a woodworking forum, then MAYBE there may be some new ideas in here. If you’re a member of this f...

Not my faves.

A few months ago I posted a review of some Kimberly-Clark Nitrile Gloves that I really liked. In the responses, several folks discussed their love of Harbor Freight nitrile gloves. I hardly ever go there, but today I needed to drop by and so I picked up some of these 5 mil gloves (they offer 3, 5, 7, and 9). I didn’t want them to be thin like the ones at the drug store (3) or as thick as some others I’d picked up (7), so I thought I would try the 5 mil model. In doing some pai...

3 styles of folding sawhorse

3 styles of folding sawhorse

08-29-2014 03:24 AM by Loren | 8 comments »

I get sent products to review sometimes. I’m an amazon vine reviewer. If you review a lot of stuff they’ll probably invite you to be one too. I reviewed a lot of books to start with. I haven’t reviewed many books lately due to the time required to read them. Once in awhile something I can really use becomes available. Here’s my comments on the Portamate folding sawhorses (about $100 a pair) compared to other styles (about $60 a pair) I use as well.

Horizontal Boring Machine

Horizontal Boring Machine

08-25-2014 10:44 PM by rad457 | 1 comment »

Assembled my G0540 Single Spindle Horizontal Boring Machine and thought I would post some of my observations and opinions. Machine was packed well and pretty easy to remove from crate, assembly was very easy and instruction were there and quite clear if needed! The washers were the wrong size not a big problem.I found that for my purposes the table should raise higher so will have elevate it in the future when I find the time.The X -Y feature works very well with the exception that the table...

Milwaukee Self Feed Bits

Milwaukee Self Feed Bits

08-09-2014 11:03 PM by natenaaron | 4 comments »

I am making something that needed a 1 3/8 inch hole cut. I whipped out the 1 3/8 hole saw I have and it was not big enough. After a quick measure it turns out it is NOT 1 3/8, so it was off to the hardware store. The only 1 3/8 hole cutting thing they had was an expensive Milwaukee self feeding bit. My choice was to spend the money and work on my project today, or order something and wait a week or so. I spent the money and I am glad I did. Being the anal type person I am, I always t...

Gorilla Tape 4.5 stars from the clamping perspective.

Gorilla Tape 4.5 stars from the clamping perspective.

07-28-2014 01:37 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, I know gorilla tape has been reviewed before but I thought I’d give it another. I want to share my experience with clamping. I have used all kinds of tape to get the job done. Painters, masking, packing and duct. All of them had some uses but for the purposes of clamping they all had failure points. I’ll discuss those and give my impressions of gorilla tape. Stickiness: most tapes had some immediate failures especially when there were trace amounts of dust or mois...

Wixey WR525 Remote Digital Readout

This is a great addition for your drill press. I first came across the wixey digital readout in an article in Woodsmith December 2008 No. 180 issue, and saved it in my drill press file. Then after agonizing over set ups for months I finally decided to buy the unit. The article does provide some basic ideas to attach components to you drill press. I have had it for several years and it has worked great. The only problem I had was operator error! The battery drains if you forget to...

Does what it is designed to do

Does what it is designed to do

Recently Kreg contacted me and asked if it would be ok to send me one of their new Foreman machines to mess around with. They did not ask for a review or ask for me to return it. I’ve been messing around with it for about a month now and can’t find any flaws or problems with the machine so I will give it a 5 star rating. It is obviously much faster than using one of their clamp down jigs. Even without dust collection the chip management is nice. I think this is geared toward so...

Accidental Work Bench

Accidental Work Bench

07-14-2014 09:28 PM by whope | 10 comments »

I had bought this kitchen cart when living in Brussels. It wasn’t needed here in the US so it ended up, like so many other un-wanted things, in my shop. I have a very small shop and I pine for the day I have a shop large enough to fit a decent sized work bench. For now, I have found this kitchen table (39L x 17W x 35H) to exactly what this shop needed. It’s the right height to work as an out-feed table. It has two slide-through drawers where I store my owner’s manuals....
