Rockler Workbench Caster Set

Rockler Workbench Caster Set

02-15-2012 06:47 AM by redryder | 16 comments »

I built this workbench about two years ago. It has three sheets of 3/4” MDF on top and four full extension drawers full of this and that. The workbench probably weights close to 250 pounds. I gave up long ago trying to move it. I saw this caster set advertised in the latest Rockler circular and thought I would give it a try. Everything was super easy to install with all screws, nuts and lock washers provided. This allows you to maneuver your heavy work bench with ease. This s...

Originally happy with purchase; unit died after 18 months.

I live in humid western Oregon, and my shop has been pretty sealed off for most of the winter. I also obtained a load of green western red cedar at the start of winter which is stickered for drying. These two facts together led me to feel that a dehumidifier might be a good investment for my shop. After researching reviews on the different models out there, I decided on the rectangular 45 pint model by Soleusair. I chose this one because of a number of features: Timer mode, to shut i...

More Reasons To Run Out & Get Yourself a DowelMax

More Reasons To Run Out & Get Yourself a DowelMax

02-12-2012 03:55 AM by kapanen | 15 comments »

There has been a lot said about the DowelMax doweling jig. I don’t want this to be another review simply stating the same things that have already been said. I want to point out a few more reasons why I believe this joinery system is the best on the market. We all know that it is a quality device, that makes the joint being preformed easy, accurate and reliable. But I believe a few more (3) reasons need to be pointed out other than those obvious ones. 1. Safety. I don’t know ab...

kehoe dovetail jig  and company

kehoe dovetail jig and company

02-10-2012 09:13 PM by will delaney | 16 comments »

I have been using the dovetail spline jig for most of my 45% corner boxes. The splines are cut with a taper which locks in the corners. Besides adding strengths to the end grain joints it looks great. The jig is made of aluminum and manufactured in the USA. The package comes complete with the jig dovetail router bit and a tables saw spline making jig. Charles Neil has a demo video posted on you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7ca8IMmFSQ. This video says it all. But the 5 stars are al...

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt 4-Port Multi Chemistry Charger 17311

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt 4-Port Multi Chemistry Charger 17311

02-09-2012 05:57 AM by David Grimes | 1 comment »

I’m a fan of the Craftsman C3 line of battery powered tools. I have more of them than Sears does lately. Some of the tools come with the battery and charger whether you need it or not. I had 7 Nicad Chargers and 1 Lithium Ion charger (and the same number of batteries). I only used two of the Nicad chargers and the one Lithium charger. The other four stayed in a drawer. I ran across this “4 door model” charger a few months ago. A LJ posted a charging station (nice, to...

Insulfoam Garage Door Insulation Kit

Insulfoam Garage Door Insulation Kit

02-09-2012 05:34 AM by David Grimes | 13 comments »

My three garage doors were not insulated. Never a problem until last year when I converted bay 3 into the Man Cave wood shop and started spending much time out here. I don’t even remember what the back porch looks like. My dogs miss me terribly. They bark at me before they remember me. I went to the BORG and the BBRG looking for garage door insulation whatever. They had some Owens Corning bag of flimsy, etc. No thanks. I called my garage door supplier/installer to see how much...

Isometric Drawing Paper

Isometric Drawing Paper

02-01-2012 05:30 PM by tenontim | 19 comments »

For all of you pencil, paper, I don’t have time to learn SketchUp, hard heads like me, I found a nice little resource on the web. It’s isometric drawing paper, for hand drawing 3d sketches. You can buy this paper already printed, but I found several sites that let you download and print your own, as you need it. The site athttp://www.customgraph.com/piart.php?art=587 has the best set up that I found, since you can change the perimeters and line colors. Give it a try, for more ...
