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...

VXB 4" Lazy Susan Bearing huge discount

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

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...

Large smooth action QR Vise

Large smooth action QR Vise

01-08-2011 06:52 PM by Hoakie | 6 comments »

I have never had a true woodworking vise before this and have been making due with clamps and a “Craftsman 6 bench vise with makeshift wood pads. I purchased this vise for myself after Christmas ($159 + free shipping) to go on a workbench that I’m planning to build (either Holtzappfel or 21st Century). I did a little bit of research online and read some reviews in FWW and realized that there are just as many opinions as there are vise styles and manufacturers. However, this t...

Harbor Freight Air Saw

Harbor Freight Air Saw

12-23-2010 10:24 PM by Raymond | 35 comments »

I recently purchased this air saw from Harbor Freight. It has worked well right out of the box. It is quiet with almost no vibration. Blades are a little expensive and are not a standard blade. Although I am working on a fix for that. At 17.99 I could not go wrong. I use if for both wood and metal work. From Harbor Freight Specs Cut a wide range of materials, trim and shape light plate, sheet metal and plastics.Zip through sheet metal as thick as 16 gaugeAir consumption: 3 CFM @ 90 PSI...

Bed Hardware

Bed Hardware

12-22-2010 12:42 AM by Tadd | 12 comments »

While building a bed for my wife, I struggled with how to connect the bed rails to the headboard and the footboard. I stumbled on this new product from Rockler. The connection hardware uses a threaded insert that is screwed into the headboard and footboard. A mating bolt is then screwed into the insert. You have to drill a hole through the rail to another hole drilled perpendicullarly into the rail. A nut and a curved washer tighten the rail to the headboard or footboard. The hardwa...

eBay Customer Protection greatly improved in last 5 yrs

I made the mistake of not looking closely enough at an old Stanley 39 plough plane. The title said “Plane” and “wood cutter”. It looked just another old well used plane that would need bit of cleaning up but would make a user. A lot of finish still on it and a little rust. I had seen a lot of them selling for $25-40. The seller had 100% positive feed back, so I didn’t spend a lot of time studying the pictures looking for a scam or what they were trying to pull over on someone. The blad...

Just what the doctor ordered!

Just what the doctor ordered!

I picked this up from Amazon.com. It was very easy to install using 8 bolts that screw in to predrilled holes in the sides of the planer, total install time was about five minutes. The table on the DW735 is so small, it’s difficult to get the workpiece positioned exactly flat to take a reading on the material removal gauge if you don’t have some sort of infeed table, especially if you’re planing a long board. With these addon tables, that problem is entirely eliminated fo...
