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 | 7 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!

11-24-2017 02:30 AM by DonCiem | 17 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 | 14 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&...

Homeright Large and Small Spray Shelters

Homeright Large and Small Spray Shelters

10-20-2017 04:27 AM by Bobthewoodbutcher | 3 comments »

I usually spray paint in my garage, blocking off my surroundings with lots of cloth, plastic, paper, etc. Not too good but it works. I found the Homeright Large and Small Spray Shelters online (Amazon and others) and decided to give it a try. I haven’t actually painted in it yet, but I’m very pleased with what I got. It is well made, nicely designed, stores compactly, and looks like it will work just fine. The material is lightweight, and has a net in front which rolls up out...

Scroll Saw Comfort Knobs

Scroll Saw Comfort Knobs

06-21-2017 08:04 PM by Triumph1 | 4 comments »

I picked up a set of these after reading Woodmaster1’s review of them. I also tracked down the YouTube video he spoke of. The seller of the comfort knobs is Marcus Bailey. Marcus is probably one of the nicest people I have emailed/spoke to. Very helpful and he sent the knobs out right away. I received them in three days. I have an Excalibur 21” scroll saw so the original knob design is a bit different than the DeWalt knobs. That being said it still only took about 20 minutes ...
