Track Saw

Track Saw

04-16-2016 04:43 AM by Steve | 8 comments »

Used my Festool track saw Model TS-75-EQ for the first time today. This is by far the very best tool that is in my collection. If I could give it a 10 out of 5 that would be my rating. I have a good quality 10” Cabinet saw, General Canada and the cut from that compared to the Festool does not even compare. I had cut a couple pieces of 3/4” cabinet grade plywood with Maple veneer at 21-1/2” on my cabinet saw and when the pieces were stacked together you could feel a sli...

HF pin nailer

I’m working on a box project , and I am making up the plan as I go. I’m right at the point where I’m thinking, How am I going to put this together? This is normal for me. I’ve got parts cut and glued together, and I need to connect 2 of the 3 main sections. I’m way past the point of doing any kind of joinery. I have a subscription to Woodsmith Magazine. I think it’s the best. In the current issue ( Vol. 38 Issue 224) is a review of some of their favorit...

Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

03-24-2016 07:39 PM by BinghamtonEd | 4 comments »

I haven’t seen a formal review for these guys on here, so I figured I’d go ahead and document my experience with these guys. I’ve placed 4 orders with them in the past year for a variety of screws, some tabletop fasteners, and most recently some 26” KV-brand heavy-duty drawer slides. Each time I ordered, I received a shipping notice 1-2 business days (or even on the day I ordered), and received my order within 5 business days. Everything was accurately counted, ba...

Full Spectrum Laser H-Series 5th Gen. 20" X 12" 45 Watt

Full Spectrum Laser H-Series 5th Gen. 20" X 12" 45 Watt

03-08-2016 06:36 PM by jawqn87 | 5 comments »

Today I am reviewing the FS Laser H-series 5th generation 45 watt laser. This was originally purchased to make my wedding invitations and I figured I would be able to make a lot of other things with it. In the hobby market, there are a few lasers that are available, however, price quickly becomes a factor. I really only looked at an Epilog laser and the Full spectrum 5th generation laser. Obviously, in the end, I went with the FS laser based almost solely on price. The lasers to me were ...

Used my boring machine to drill a bunch of holes in my cabinet box sides. Drilled 7 cabinets in around 20 minutes, this is a very easy tool to setup and worked just great. the only thing its a little loud while running so I put on my hearing protection.

WoodRiver Retracting Caster Review

WoodRiver Retracting Caster Review

02-28-2016 10:18 AM by OakHill | 2 comments »

I purchased these casters for the Bosch GTS 1031Table Saw mounted on top of the Bosch GTA 500 Stand. The casters swivel smoothly and I never had a problem with them getting stuck or not rotating as some reviewers had experienced. Some preliminary testing had to be done. (See Base Description below) The mechanism works great and is easily operated. The foot action for raising and lowering the casters works exceptionally well. A very well designed product from WoodRiver. As a retired Man...

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

02-24-2016 11:18 AM by OakHill | 1 comment »

Great attachment. If you need to cut small or thin pieces of wood or plastic you really need this Dremel accessory in your tool inventory. I have only tried it on about 6-7 cuts thus far. I found the best results when the work piece is clamped and in using two hands, one to hold the tool and the other hand to guide the Mini Saw works the best. Perhaps with practice this method will change. Just as with any other power saw, let the tool do the cutting, not the muscles in your arm. Well ...

Nail Pullers

Nail Pullers

02-09-2016 09:23 PM by Kelly | 1 comment »

I’ve had this tool for well over five years and have put a lot of miles on it in that time. I’ve used it on several remodel jobs. I liked it so much, I bought a second for my wood shop. Big or small, each of my crowbars often require significant effort to pull nails. As a claw gets farther from the wood from which a nail is being pulled, the leverage advantage disappears. Frequently, I have to scrounge around for something to put under the claw, to raise it, to get my leverage ...

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 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...
