Rockler customer service rocks

Rockler customer service rocks

07-13-2014 03:25 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

A little history. About 5 years ago I bought a mini bench top router table from Rockler. After two moves and some mishaps the mdf subfences were ruined so I needed new ones. I didn’t want to make my own so I contacted Rockler to see if I could order these parts. Rockler answered my email promptly with the information that they didn’t make that size anymore but that the longer ones for their regular table would fit, but would stick out at the sides a bit. And they asked what m...

Harbor Freigth Tree Pruning Tool

Harbor Freigth Tree Pruning Tool

07-12-2014 01:08 PM by b2rtch | 13 comments »

I had several trees with dead branches that I wanted to cut.Several times at Harbor Freight I looked at the cordless electric chainsaw which at $60.00 after rebate is a good buy but being cheap I decided not not buy it but to buy the manual tool instead.I am very glad I did. It is very well build made not of cheap stuff but heavy steel and the adjustable pole is also steel and lock with a 1/4 turn or so.I used this tool most of the day yesterday and I am very happy with it.I paid around $12.0...

A real diamond near Orlando Fl.

Howdy, The kids and I just finished an awesome time at Disney world. Tomorrow morning begins the long return trip. I can’t wait to get home. I have 6 beautiful boards in the van. I just want to start staring at them and dreaming. Today I met a true woodworking master and conservationist. Mr Bob Hughes is keeping old fallen, dead standing and cleared trees out of the landfills. Bob mills the trees on his property and sells them at very low prices. Bob is working on a beautiful ...

Buying wood online

Buying wood online

I usually do small projects out of specialty woods and sometimes have a difficult time finding stock. For the longest time, I have been getting wood from Rockler because of the smaller sizes and available widths and thicknesses. However, I often times received a crooked or warped piece. The final straw was ordering supplies to make a project out of 3/8” Walnut. I was almost done when I made a wrong cut and needed to order another piece. However, at the time, Rockler was out of 3/8”...

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

06-22-2014 06:06 PM by retfr8flyr | 7 comments »

I have had my Baileigh Industrial JP-1250 for about 8 months now and I think I have used it enough to give a credible review. Baileigh has been around in the metal machine business for years but just started getting into woodworking machines. I did a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on this machine and decided, at the price it was selling for, I couldn’t pass it up. The machine arrived in great shape with excellent packaging. It comes with 4 heavy casters but they don̵...

Woodpeckers multi knobs- fantastic!

Woodpeckers multi knobs- fantastic!

06-05-2014 02:47 AM by GoBlu | 3 comments »

I’ve used both these styles in various jigs,both the mini and regular multi knobs and cannot say enough good about them. I used to spend hours shopping around to find the right diameter knob with the right size thread and right length and the right type. These are very flexible in that you can use them as a through or studded knob. The minis come only in 1/4”, but the larger knobs come in 1/4”, 3/8” or 5/16” standard hex head bolts or nuts. The minis especially hav...

A quick look at a product that was sent to me after I had built my “Between the Stud Cabinets”. I had cleats before to house the shelves but now I have more flexibility for any new changes! http://youtu.be/nKPn9OWfUr0

Mobile storage for less

The DeWalt TSTAK is the yellow and black competitor to the Festool/Tanos Systainer and Bosch/Sortimo L-Boxx. There doesn’t seem to be much of a retail presence at the moment (although Woodcraft seems to have begun carrying them, and highlighted them as a 2014 Fathers Day gift idea). So after a lot of online research, I procured a few of these units (the long-handle I, flat top II, and 2 drawer IV) because I found them to be on average, 30-50% less per unit than it’s competitors....

If I could have rated it with less than 1 star I would have. In short, don’t waste your time! Every joint I tested leaked! There was noting I could have done to stop the leaks.

Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner Cuts Through Blade Buildup Effortlessly

Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner Cuts Through Blade Buildup Effortlessly

05-21-2014 12:54 PM by CBeard | 9 comments »

After replacing the blade on my tablesaw, I promptly made the mistake of running some construction grade 2×12’s through it. To say that they gummed up the blade would be an understatement. I took the gummed up blade off and set it to the side for a few weeks until I had time to find a cleaner to remove the sap. Online reviews led me to Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner. Unlike some other cleaners, it is non toxic and biodegradable, which naturally causes one to question how well it ...
