As many of you have done I am currently in the process of building a poker table, and i am almost finished.

I needed a light fabric and vinyl…pictures will come once i am finished. Well i stumbled upon this site that has everything and more so i thought i would share so anyone else needing supplies to build a poker table can use this site. ALS...

HF Work Bench On Sale

HF Work Bench On Sale

10-03-2011 09:41 PM by SPHinTampa | 14 comments »

My homemade workbench top (my first big project) gave up a few weeks ago. I saw an advertizement for this and had a coupon for 20% off so net price for the work bench came out to $129 …. not a bad price. Pros:- Assembly is solid .. .I was worried it would be flimsy and it is not- Vice quality is acceptable Cons:- 1/2” bench dog holes that are spaced inconvienently far apart- Either I am bad at assembly or the mounting hardware is slightly off … i had trouble keepi...

Shipping mistake corrected in one call

Shipping mistake corrected in one call

Hi there; I just had a very good experience with BusyBeeTools.ca and I thought I would share. Here seemed to be the best place. Amoungst other things I ordered 8 wheels for a table saw cabinet I am working on and an outfeed table. When I got the shipment I got one wheel with a packing list and a sale slip which said only three were back ordered. My first feeling was “oh no, am I gonna have to argue with them?”. Well no not at all. I phoned them over lunch the next busines...

Evapo-Rust vs. RustAid

Evapo-Rust vs. RustAid

09-15-2011 05:40 AM by thiel | 15 comments »

Having recently suffered a flooded shop, I’m something of an expert on rust removal. I usually use Evapo-Rust but while waiting for the shipment (from McMaster) I bought some “Rust Aid” from home depot. Bottom line? Evaporust is FAR superior. Rust Aid starts clear but quickly turns into a green, gritty soup, leaving odd residue on the tools once they are derusted. Getting the residue off is a chore in itself. Evaporust stays clear for a while but eventually turns bla...

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

09-13-2011 03:00 AM by Pie | 4 comments »

On my usual Thursday night grocery shopping at WalMart, I was looking through the tool aisle (never know what I may find) I (Ok my girlfriend did( saw this hanging by the tape measures> Hmmm for around $4 bucks I thought I would give it a try because my workbench needed a built in measuring tape. It took me 2 tries to get it on correctly. I was certain it would not stick after re taping 2x but it did. I had to cut it with a dremel since it is a metal backed tape. Definitely, worth it, just no...

SmartHinge - The new premium box hinge

SmartHinge - The new premium box hinge

09-05-2011 10:16 PM by RogerBean | 12 comments »

Hinging a box project is one of the most troublesome and intimidating parts of box making. But, there is a really easy way. The SmartHinge is the best looking, easiest to install premium brass box hinge available. Emphasis on easy. SmartHinge is the latest entry into the premium box hinge inventory. These hinges are the brainchild of Andrew Crawford and Rolls Royce engineer Clive Jarman. They are solid brass, precision machined “side-rail” style hinges highly polished to a mirror fini...

Easy to install and simple to addjust

Easy to install and simple to addjust

Incra Miter Slider Not a whole lot to say about miter slot sliders but I like these over the Kreg’s for the simple fact that you can adjust the width from above. The Kreg’s you have to remove the slider, make an adjustment using the set screw, repeat until you get the fit that you want. The Incra’s use the “spreader” method for adjusting the fit. You just have to locate and drill a 1/4” hole through the sled to allow access to the adjustment. Down si...

Veritas Cornering tool

Veritas Cornering tool

09-03-2011 07:27 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 17 comments »

I have had this tool for a few years. I use it quit a bit. I never seem to like the feel of it, just me I guess. It works very well if I keep my wits about myself. If I don’t, I end up cutting into the grain opening a big sliver on the edge I am trying to round over. The two tools have 4 radius options, 1/16, 1/8, 3/16 and 1/4. I usually opt for one of the smaller ones. Tonight I was breaking the edge on a pine shelf board. It does a good job very quickly and saves setting up th...

Precision at a Bargain Price

Precision at a Bargain Price

If you are like me, you see the pictures of the Incra Table Saw or Router fences, drool a bit, look at your wallet, sigh, and move on. While trolling Craig’s List, I stumbled onto the Incra Jig.. for $30! I looked at the picture and, after my disappointment that someone was NOT selling the table saw system for $30 (HA!), I was pretty intrigued by the tool and did some Internet research… Apparently, the Incra Jig (or Incra Universal Jig) was Incra’s first product. It...
