Wooden Spinner Swivel

Wooden Spinner Swivel

68 days ago by ca8920 | 2 comments »

A few weeks back I made some wooden spinners and posted pictures of the spinners as a project. After posting pictures of the spinners I received several questions about the types of swivels I used. After testing several types of swivels I decided the sealed ball bearing swivels were the best and didn’t gunk up or break down. Below is a Cabela’s like to the Sampo type swivels I ended up using. They spin very easily due to the internal ball bearing. Chris http://www.cabela...

The tool I could not do without

The tool I could not do without

71 days ago by b2rtch | 28 comments »

My wife bought me this tool for my birthday probably six years ago. I have used it for demolition and construction to cut copper pipes and wood, to sand where no other sander whould have done the job and for many other things. This tool took me out of a bind countless time. This is a wonderful little detail sander. This morning I used it again to trim pieces of wood where not other tool could have done it. If you do not already have one of this, go buy one. Sometimes they are on sale ...

Cool little shop accessory

Cool little shop accessory

89 days ago by Whiskers | 7 comments »

Well, I didn’t get flamed on my first review and yesterday I went to the HD to pick up a order and also picked up some rare earth magnets for this puppy. Than it occurred to me maybe some of you might like this as well. I bought it just under a year ago and I find it to be handy as heck. Don’t be fooled by it’s boast of being extra large, it is really quite small. Any smaller and it would be near useless, but it perfect for holding a couple pencils and pens, a 6” co...

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

http://www.harborfreight.com/digital-mini-moisture-meter-67143.html Again another stunning value from Harbor Freight $12.99 for something that measures moisture in wood, masonry, and doubles as a centigrade or fahrenheit thermometer. Compare this to 25 or 30 bucks elsewhere.

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

111 days ago by MrRon | 6 comments »

This is not a woodworker tool, but it is a tool none-the-less. Made of plastic, aluminum and spring steel; operated by hand, it is used to pick up items that are out of reach with suction cup like grippers. Originally intended for older people who have difficulty picking up items that are out of reach, I have found more uses for this tool than it was intended for. Although I’m not an old person (only 79), I do have difficulty picking up small items that fall to the floor in my shop. Th...

The Little Vac That Could

The Little Vac That Could

111 days ago by pashley | 2 comments »

Ok, never thought I’d be writing a review about a shop vac, but… I ordered this by mail order from Home Depot, wanting to replace my burned out 16 gallon shop vac, which was used to collect sawdust from my big tools. This was a wrong choice, because the hose diameter was only 1 1/4”, and not the 2 1/2” I really needed – my mistake. Nevertheless, the assembly was easy, and I appreciated it used vac bags, which is much easier to change, versus tipping ove...

my first apron - Thanks Marc!

my first apron - Thanks Marc!

112 days ago by rhybeka | 9 comments »

I’ve been looking for a while for a shop apron that met my criteria – had to have pockets for pencils, fit over my winter clothes, take abuse (since I seem to be hard on all of my clothes), and, well I guess this is where being female comes in, not be butt ugly. I’ve had my eye on TheWoodWhisperer's shop apron a while now, just haven’t been able to pony up for it. When I was able to a few weeks ago, I went to order it and saw it was out of stock. I emailed and asked...

Not as hard at it seems

Not as hard at it seems

I recently purchased the Leigh Super 18 Jig. I was waiting for a Porter-Cable 4216 Dovetail Jig, but after talking with one of the salesman decided to cancel the order and purchased the Leigh. I was drawn to the Leigh for the ability to center my half pins regardless of the with of my stock. When using the Porter-Cable jig widths must be multiples of 7/8” to assure a symmetrical pattern. Another aspect that helped sell me the Leigh Jig was the ability to do one pass half-blind doveta...

GREAT FEATURES/GREAT VALUE!

GREAT FEATURES/GREAT VALUE!

120 days ago by jeffwedekind | 6 comments »

A VERY HIGH 4 STAR A year or two ago I decided to get into the pocket hole joinery kick for basic carcasse construction. At the time I bulit a jig to house the jig and accesories, and I finally got around to posting the project. (seen here) Many of the comments focused on which jig this was, so I thought it high time to do a review. (Not to mention this RARE gem from HF deserves a positive nudge. After much consideration and research, I chose the (dare I say it) Harbor Freight jig....
