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 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 | 11 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...
