1/4" Angle Die Grinder

1/4" Angle Die Grinder

08-03-2011 05:54 AM by Raymond | 1 comment »

Another good Harbor Freight find in my opinion was this little angle grinder. 1/4” 20000 RPM 3 CFM @ 90 PSI. The 1/8 collet from the other die grinder I purshased the last time I was at Harbor Freight fits this grinder. Pleanty of power, and does not bog down under a load. Like most HF air tools this one did not come with the fitting. I really wish they would include them. This is great for getting into hard to reach spaces. And it was on sale 14.99. Can’t go wrong. Like most of H...

1/8 Micro Die Grinder

1/8 Micro Die Grinder

08-03-2011 05:34 AM by Raymond | 1 comment »

Another trip to Harbor Freight the other day finds me bringing home a few more air tool. This little grinder reminds me of the dentist, even sounds like the dentist. 56000 Rpm, 2 CFM @ 90 PSI. The twist on off feature is ok but not very user friendly. I am working on a foot control. It feels nice in the hand and has tons of power. No vibration and the hose is very flexible. 1 year warentee, and came with all the fittings. If your looking for an inexpensive 22.99 $ high speed tool this just mi...

For The Pizza Lover

For The Pizza Lover

07-30-2011 07:58 PM by lew | 15 comments »

If you are looking for a nice project for the pizza lover in your family, this is it! Extremely well made, heavy- 12.5 ounces (without the handle), sharp, and the blade is mounted on the axle so there is absolutely no “wobble”. The cutter also includes a threaded insert for the handle- so the handle can be removed and the cutter place in the dishwasher-and an allen wrench to help thread the insert into your handle. The instructions are well written, including tips on how to get the inse...

Foot Savers

Foot Savers

07-26-2011 06:33 AM by coloradoclimber | 8 comments »

My shop space has a concrete floor. I’m ok with the concrete, it is easy to clean and easy to roll my tools around. But it is KILLER on my feet and back. I have flat feet, you know the kind that when you walk barefoot they make a sucking sound when you pick your feet up. The kind that when people see your foot prints in the sand they think the web footed monster from the black lagoon must have strolled by. And because of my feet after any full day in the shop my feet just ache, whi...

Veritas 38" Aluminum Straightedge

Veritas 38" Aluminum Straightedge

07-21-2011 05:17 AM by TheGman | 9 comments »

I just purchased the VERITAS 38” Aluminum Straightedge from Lee Valley. The straightedge was shipped in a sturdy cardboard tube that I’ll continue to use as a place to store the straightedge to prevent any damage in the shop. I had a very good first impression once I removed the straightedge from the packaging. It has a very nice finish, which looks great and feels nice in your hand. Its contour makes it very easy to grip and handle. To check the straightness of the straight...

Craftsman Revolving Turret Doweling Jig - circa 1950's through 1970's

Craftsman Revolving Turret Doweling Jig - circa 1950's through 1970's

07-17-2011 09:01 AM by David Grimes | 9 comments »

I don’t dowel very much, only every now and then. The same goes for biscuit joints and pocket screws… every now and then. But I wanted a jig so that when I do any more, they’ll be easier/faster/more accurate. I had been looking at all the new doweling jigs for quite some time and was not overly impressed. So I started looking at some older jigs. I thought at first I wanted a Stanley 59, but most have one or more of the drill guides missing, or are in bad shape, and som...

Accept Credit Cards With Square and Your iPhone

Accept Credit Cards With Square and Your iPhone

07-14-2011 10:14 PM by odie | 29 comments »

I’ve seen this advertized today on LumberJocks’ pages. I’ve been using it for 2 months and absolutely love it. If you’ve read my blog “So you want to go pro” I complained about the outrageous costs for accepting credit cards. Square is a new company that has NO monthly fees as all other companies do. This uses a card reader (they supply for free) and your iPhone. Compare my experience below: Old Credit Card Company $56.29 / mo. if used or notAll cards ha...

Small gripe about the grip.

Small gripe about the grip.

07-06-2011 11:21 PM by cam1297 | 8 comments »

I held out for a long time before I dropped the $50 to buy the Gorilla Gripper. It says it will grip and carry sheet goods from 3/8 to 1 1/8 inch thick. I could not get it to hold and carry 1/2 inch thick drywall without it sliding off. It was also difficult to adjust the gripping faces to hold the sheets. I was trying to carry the new ultra light drywall. It was easier to carry the panels myself than it was with the gorilla gripper. On the website, it shows the gripper being used to ca...

I recently bought a box of these nails to assemble a five-board bench. I drilled small pilot holes just to keep the nails headed in the right direction. Tremont recommends a pilot hole about the diameter of the nail halfway to the tip, but mine was much smaller and did the job just fine. The nails are a joy to drive, but they are soft—softer than round shank nails you might find at the hardware store. This makes it easy to clinch them, if you want, but also makes it easy to bend them...
