Evapo-Rust to the rescue

Evapo-Rust to the rescue

1605 days ago by hjt | 14 comments »

This is my first use of this product and am impressed The tools were 12 years + and came from my father’s house in upstate NY. Due to his age and declining health, he had not used them for years by the time I picked them up and brought them to Florida (rust capital of the world – I believe.) Rust Removal – before photos: Evapo-Rust to the rescue here are the after photos. I learned about Evapo-Rust from a forum devoted to Radial Arm Saws. I bought it at Har...

Best kept cleaning secret

Best kept cleaning secret

1608 days ago by Routerisstillmyname | 24 comments »

Stop wasting your money on those so-called cleaners that require you to mortgage your tools just to get few ounces of water and soap in a fancy package. EASY-OFF has been around a long time with a proven track record.It comes in several different skin removing flavors and I guarantee you’ll be amazed at the results.It’ll make your saw blades; router bits, forstner bits and anything that can’t be recognized anymore look like it’s brand new.Oh yeah, make sure you wear gloves.

I had occasion to purchase some extruded brass extra narrow butt hinges for project I’m working on this week around here Lee Valley is the only game in town for this type of hardware.Unfortunately with the help of the counter clerk I managed to bollocks up the matching screw head sizes receive available hinge. Notwithstandingm yet another trip to the store on Saturday morning I found that they suggested head size #4 did not completely match the countersink in these hinges.Nothing in fi...

Harbor Freight 60" Workbench

Harbor Freight 60" Workbench

1621 days ago by JohnGreco | 11 comments »

I saw this workbench on sale from Harbor Freight and figured at the price of $159, it was worth a shot. Note- At the time of writing this, the bench is on sale further, costing just $129. For the price I paid, I think it was pretty good, but for the even lower sale price you can’t go wrong. The top is Oak, about 1” thick with a thicker edge (so the edge you see in the picture isn’t the thickness of the entire table). It comes with an end vise (mounted to the right, yo...

"Lumber core" plywood - be sure  you know what you're getting

"Lumber core" plywood - be sure you know what you're getting

1628 days ago by JJohnston | 11 comments »

I thought I’d try a new (to me) product I found at my local “good” lumberyard – “lumber core plywood” – to build a few utility-grade shop projects. It’s made of solid lumber pieces laminated with thin face veneers. The core pieces are tongue-and-groove joined along their edges, which you can see in the first picture (if you can’t make out the part in focus, look below and to the right at the piece in the clamps. You can see the contrast be...

A must have for the shop

A must have for the shop

Mechanix Wear Gloves When I am out in the shop I always wear gloves to protect my hands from bangs, bumps, scratches, cuts and anything else that can happen. I have tried various types of snug fitting gloves, but the ones that I reach for most often are the Mechanix Utility All Purpose. http://www.mechanix.com/hardware/utility-glove This is what their site says . . . For a work glove that features quality and value, step up to the ?all-purpose Utility Glove from Mechanix Wear. It i...

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

1633 days ago by Jay Neale III | 7 comments »

This will be short and to the point. I bought a set of four Bench Cookies from the Rockler in Arlington, Texas, this past Saturday. That evening I used them to support my new router table top clamped to my old router table top so I could use the old top as a template to rout out the opening for the plate. I hop that made sense. Anyway, the Bench Cookies worked GREAT! I expected them to work, but I was still surprised at how well they held my work piece in place for the entire operation. N...

Harbor Freight 1-ton foldable shop crane

Harbor Freight 1-ton foldable shop crane

1656 days ago by JJohnston | 6 comments »

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=93840 Like many of you, I’m leery of a lot of Harbor Freight items, but I decided to take a chance on this shop crane to lift a couple of heavy machines onto their stands – an 8” parallelogram jointer and this 14” bandsaw. It’s really nothing more than a hydraulic jack and some welded steel tubing, so what could go wrong? As recommended, I got a bottle of jack oil at the same time as the crane...

Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage

Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage

1657 days ago by Greg..the Cajun Box Sculptor | 18 comments »

Sandpaper is always a pain to store and organize. I previously had built a bulky and definitely not portable storage rack for my sandpaper. I saw this plastic file folder yesteday while in office Depot and a flourescent light bulb went off…but that’s a different story. For $10 this was a perfect solution for storing my sandpaper and making it easy to carry around to wherever I needed sandpaper. I addition to the 9×11” sheets I bought it for I can also put round orbital ...
