New Order from Toys and Joys

New Order from Toys and Joys

11-27-2011 04:52 AM by Raymond | 7 comments »

I reciently placed another order with Toys and Joys for the two toys pictured above. I figured this would be a good time to write a review. This is my third or fourth order from Toys and Joys. Plans are 18X24 full size with all dimensions. They are printed on good quality paper and are easy to read. My order was shipped quickly and was packaged great. I highly recommend them. I can’t wait to see what Toys and Joys has new for 2012 If you get a chance check them out. http://www.toysandj...

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

11-16-2011 11:55 PM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

These Dewalt Biscuits fit snugly into the slot compared to other brands I have used. In the dozens of tubes of Porter Cable biscuits I have used, they are always a little loose. That is fine for most work, but these Dewalt biscuits are better. Because the fit is so good, it actually aligns the edges for you. This is very helpful when doing glue-ups for tabletops. I realized how good the fit was when I mistakenly put biscuits in the slots on both sides of the joint. When I realized I had...

A versatile tool for small cuts and other tricks

A versatile tool for small cuts and other tricks

11-13-2011 11:27 PM by Jorge G. | 13 comments »

Well, I finally got my Jointmaker Pro V2. I mainly bought this tool to make kerf bending, inlay, and a few other ideas I have for spiffing up projects. The tool comes in a fairly small box, there are a lot of pieces and assembly instructions are very explicit and easy to follow, the machine can be put together in one afternoon. When I got my tool, there were a few parts missing or the wrong size, being BCT once I contacted them I was sent the parts at no charge to me via Fedex, great se...

Lee Valley Square Hole Punches

Lee Valley Square Hole Punches

11-11-2011 07:27 AM by vipond33 | 23 comments »

This is a review of the Veritas Square Hole Punch, available individually or as a set of six, ranging in size from 3/16” to 1/2” by sixteenths. These punches are most often used for period work such as Greene and Greene style pieces where a raised plug is inserted, or for decorative pierced work (like the ones in my pictures) or for small square mortices. You could also use them as the beginning of much deeper mortises, using the perfect opening created as your guide for furth...

Makes Drilling Pocket Holes a Walk in the Park

Makes Drilling Pocket Holes a Walk in the Park

11-09-2011 11:22 PM by Kelen | 11 comments »

I’m sure some may argue, but this has got to be one of the coolest little gadgets I have in my shop. I opted for the mini version 1) for the attractive price tag compared to their pricier systems, and 2) I never really thought I would use that many pocket holes in my projects. Several hundred pocket holes later, I find myself wishing I had paid the extra amount and purchased their more complete system that retails for around $99. The Kreg-Jig mini will do the same job just as good as its m...

Affordable remote  control for your Dust Collectors

Affordable remote control for your Dust Collectors

11-08-2011 04:20 AM by cajunpen | 21 comments »

Found this remote on Amazon.com while looking for a solution to outdoor Christmas lights, as the season is quickly approaching. This unit is under $20 and comes with 2 controllable outlets – the remote control has two separate switches for each of the 2 controllers. I have 2 dust collectors in my shop – a 1 hp Delta and the small one from Rockler that hangs on the wall. I plugged them into the 2 controllers and Wallah!!! Works like a charm. I HIGHLY recommend this as an e...

Not to much to say about it other then its sturdy and gives you a perfect way to trasport and store you kreg pocket hole jigs and the supply to use it.

I hate to rave about something as simple as a plastic tool box but the folks at Kreg have hit a home r...

5 Ton Electric Log Splitter

5 Ton Electric Log Splitter

10-19-2011 07:35 AM by redryder | 17 comments »

It is getting to be that time of year. I have seen some posts asking how people heat thier shop in the winter. I heat mine with both electric heat and a wood stove. Last year my brother loaned me his Homelite Electric Log Splitter to split my firewood. The maul and sledge hammer is just not a much fun as it used to be. I couldn’t believe how easy and great this machine was to use. After raving about it all summer, he bought me one for my birthday . They sell for $299.00 at ...

Accu-Link Adjustable Link V-Belts (from Harbor Frei

Accu-Link Adjustable Link V-Belts (from Harbor Frei

10-18-2011 02:13 AM by David Grimes | 21 comments »

There are at least two common brands of link belts on the market: PowerTwist belts, manufactured by Fenner Drives, are red. Accu-Link belts, from Jason Industrial, are green. The Harbor Freight belts are the green Accu-links and the subject of this review. The regular price is $24.99 for a five foot piece ($5 per foot). I have the pleasure of being a Ridgid BS14002 bandsaw owner. Luckily, mine did not have the vibration issues that others have experienced. However, there was some mino...
