8” Bionic Wrench

8” Bionic Wrench

02-20-2011 03:39 PM by christopheralan | 3 comments »

This is the 8” Bionic Wrench by Logger Head Tools. It is one of the coolest tools I own. Thanks to innovative design and engineering, it automatically adjusts to any size hex-head fastener from 7/16 inch to ¾ inch and from 11mm to 20mm. This had Super Hero Belt status immediately. Being a carpenter and woodworker, I don’t normally turn wrenches, except to change blades and occasionally to secure lag bolts and screws. It is ideal for me in those situations where I normally have enough cle...

Dead On Tools Exhumer 9 Nail Puller

Dead On Tools Exhumer 9 Nail Puller

02-15-2011 12:57 AM by christopheralan | 6 comments »

This isn’t your average cat’s-paw style nail puller. This is the Exhumer 9 by Dead-On Tools. It actually measures 10 5/8”, but with a name like Exhumer, who cares. This is another multi-use tool with a circular saw blade nut wrench, small hammer face, two claws, and a bottle opener. Yes, a bottle opener. It works. I tried it about 12 times the first weekend I owned it…I lost count after that… Anyway, I have used the heck out of this, and it has always performed well. I have pu...

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

02-13-2011 01:49 AM by Cubby | 7 comments »

I have been looking at Bridge City products for some time. I haven’t used them, however, because of the cost. You see, I never drove a Jaguar before. Well, recently I purchased the Bridge City Tool Work’s “Jointmaker Pro Single Wing” saw. This tool, ‘merely’, is a japanese saw blade tucked away in a unit that permits wood cutting operations. The precision cuts enabled by this tool and the surface definition produced by the cuts it makes is , in my opi...

Ryobi TEK4 All-Play Jobsite MP3 Music Player

Ryobi TEK4 All-Play Jobsite MP3 Music Player

02-12-2011 02:08 AM by christopheralan | 0 comments »

This is the TEK4 All-Play Jobsite MP3 Music Player by Ryobi Tools. It is water, dust and impact resistant, and plays all types of music files. It will hold 2 giggaflops of music, which translates to around 500 songs, depending on the file size. This player will rattle your eardrums for approximately 72 continuous hours thanks to the 4-volt lithium-ion battery. Just clip it to your superhero belt or attach it to the armband and carry it around the jobsite or workshop. Before using the All-P...

Good, reliable jig, no longer in the HF catalog...

Good, reliable jig, no longer in the HF catalog...

02-05-2011 04:47 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

Since the family blowup at Harbor Freight, a lot of good tools have gone out of the catalog, in particular, the aluminum taper jig. Now I am not sure what all can be said about this thing. It’s just about as straight forward and simple as can be, and it works exactly as you would expect it to. When they were available, they were often on sale for about $13.00, or $11.40 after the 20% off coupon… The jig slides easily along the fence, holds tight and secure, the adjustments h...

Horrible service

Horrible service

01-25-2011 12:58 AM by twoblacklabs | 18 comments »

Lousy service, over a week to ship, no tracking number and damaged goods. I needed new bearings for my jointer restoration. Ordered online from this site. The purchase immediately cleared my account (surprise surprise). Yet a week later, no bearings. A call their “Customer Service” and the dude says there isn’t a tracking number and he’s positive they had already sent the bearings. Well, they finally showed up, as a drop shipment from another supplier. However, they...

AN IDEAL LIGHT FOR CLOSE WORK, (such as Carving, & Woodturning)

AN IDEAL LIGHT FOR CLOSE WORK, (such as Carving, & Woodturning)

01-24-2011 07:08 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 26 comments »

I finally started to continue carving on the Reverie Harp that I started about 2 years ago. But I was set back with some delays, like repairing some needed things, like repair an Ant Damaged Gazebo Shed roof. After that I had to take care of some health maintenance problems, such as Cataract surgery on one eye. So now after all of that, I started carving on the Harp again. I wasn’t satisfied with the light source I’ve been using, so I took a trip to our local Walmart. I w...

Great Flashlight - Indispensable tool

Great Flashlight - Indispensable tool

01-13-2011 06:55 PM by richgreer | 9 comments »

I have 4 other 18 volt Dewalt cordless tools with 4 batteries and 2 chargers. The batteries are all interchangeable so I almost always have charged batteries on hand. My local tool store had these “bare” flashlights on sale for about $20 and I said “why not?”. By “bare” I mean without battery or charger. This flashlight has proven to be a great tool that I didn’t know I needed until I got one. There are often situations where some extra di...

Hey guys, This is mainly for you guys out there in the USA, but you never know. As you may know, US ball-bearing supplier VXB has been in the market for a very long time and sells all kinds of bearings to the whole world. The great thing about them is that despite being a huge company they also sell to individuals. And now comes the woodworkers’ part: for a limited time, they’re offering this 4” LS bearing for $0.99. Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

01-12-2011 05:48 AM by thiel | 9 comments »

NOTE:—Photos and Videos at the Bottom... scroll down!— Where I used to live, there was a so called “incredible” hardwood supplier who had a showroom of almost 800 square feet in which to display oak, cherry, poplar, and walnut. Occasionally, they’d get some additional “special” species. Oh, and EVERYTHING was S2S. Boy was I clueless! When I moved to my current town two years ago, I had a heckuva time locating a hardwood dealer. I searched on...
