Bending Wood [or Off Lable Use of the Wagner Wall Paper Steamer]

Bending Wood [or Off Lable Use of the Wagner Wall Paper Steamer]

02-09-2016 06:50 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

Though sold as a wall paper steamer, I bought this to bend wood, as a cheaper alternative to the ones sold by Rocker for bending wood, but which cost twice as much. First off, I was not, in any way, disappointed with my small investment. I built a plywood box about five feet long and four equal sides about ten inches square. On a whim, and before assembling the sides, I covered the interior sides with tin foil. Once the tube was assembled, I added a permanent back. The front cover...

Branding iron on the go.

Branding iron on the go.

Branding ironon the go Do I need a branding iron on the go? Naaaaaa…... but it’s one of those things that just needed me.For others, it can be a fair priced way of getting a branding iron for your tools and projects. So what is this thing?A small 3D printed object that can be mounted on your BIG lighter and like this it will be able to make you smoke and look smoking hot (also wait for quite some time before it gets hot).But: the iron gets too hot and melt the lighter, worst...

Electric Radiant Heat in the Workshop Review

Electric Radiant Heat in the Workshop Review

01-19-2016 02:44 AM by JBrow | 12 comments »

Problem. Prior to 2013, I heated the attached 2 car garage 450 square foot workshop with open flame heat. I started out with propane, but it was loud and consumed a lot fuel. I switched to tall style kerosene heater and stuck with it for about 5 years. The kerosene heater did a great job keeping the shop warm, but the fumes would enter the house even with weather stripping on the tight closing door. And then there was purchasing fuel; it seemed that every two to three weeks I had to ma...

DON’T BUY THIS PRODUCT. So bad that I think Arrow took it off the market. Will definitely NOT drive any length nail into pine (e.g. house trim) and certainly not into hardwoods (oak, etc.) Tried 2 of them… same result. Guy at Lowes says they got mostly returns. Check out youtube.com and other places to be sure.

$15 Wooden Adjustable Alaskan Chainsaw Mill DIY Homemade

$15 Wooden Adjustable Alaskan Chainsaw Mill DIY Homemade

01-03-2016 02:48 AM by TObenhuber | 9 comments »

I couldn’t decide if this is a project or a review. So, review it is. I have been wanting an Alaskan Chainsaw Mill after being able to look at one that my friend had. It is the standard aluminum mill (brand not important). It was nice, adjustable, strong, well made, and I would have loved to try it. Unfortunately the saw stopped working before I had the chance. So as someone that had to have one I went straight to Amazon and looked it up. My first impression was, “$$$Holy Crap$$$” A...

Im finnaly getting my tools together!

Sometimes things come together like two peas in a pod! I was feeling bad at snapping at my employee last week, but the guy has been working for me for two months and still had no idea where anything is located in our shop. I would have to stop what I was doing to find a tool for him. Then to make it worse, the guy would put it back IN THE WRONG place and then I would have to ask him where it went lol. Enough is enough!I have seen these “wood shop labels” at www.steellabels.com be...

Shockingly Inaccurate

Shockingly Inaccurate

12-20-2015 12:57 AM by LostHasher | 6 comments »

I’ve purchased some worthless tools, but nothing compares to the useless C.H. Hanson Precision Ball Level. The company’s claim… “Easier to Read Than a Bubble™.” Wrong. Let me quickly summarize: The concept is fantastic and it’s an eye-catcher, but purchase it only if you want to give your kids a toy to play with. The website shows construction guys using it for indoor and outdoor framing, including a roofer. But wait… the Ball Level is only two feet long. I would never use a two-foot level...

DeWalt DWS7085 Mitre Saw LED Worklight System

DeWalt DWS7085 Mitre Saw LED Worklight System

11-30-2015 04:13 AM by wseand | 8 comments »

A friend of mine gave me this awhile back and I didn’t think I would use it because I realy didn’t need the extra light. Well I guess I should have installed it earlier then I did. I have been using it for some time now and wonder how I cut without it before. I think it is a great accessory, I would say better then a laser light. I believe they run about 35 bucks and I would say well worth the investment. It is quite easy to install even for a knot head as myself. Although, i...

There are two aspects to this review. The first is regarding the premium subscription experience with WWGOA itself and the second is specific to the “How to build a stylish stool” plan (which requires premium membership). First, if you Google WWGOA to find out more about it you will extensive references to a business practice it had a few years ago of buying names and addresses from woodworking supply companies and then sending unsolicited DVD’s and then sending invoices ...
