Harbor Freight Wireless Driveway Alert System 93086

08-16-2011 08:11 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 16 comments »

In order to do any work or woodworking, we need to keep our tools safe and sound. Unfortunately, unincorporated south King County, WA does not have viable police protection. Most city cops in the area just laugh when you tell them you are in the unincorporated area because they know there are no cops. Unfortunately, the thieves know it too. Fortunately, we have annexed into a city and the police actually come rather quickly. I had thieves trying to steal my tools at least 3x a year fro...

Help Making Perfect Inlays

Help Making Perfect Inlays

08-14-2011 03:42 PM by RogerBean | 19 comments »

First thing I noticed when I opened the box, was that this is a quality tool. Machined and anodized aluminum, with the A2 corner chisel itself cleverly held in place with several small magnets. I first had the opportunity to use the prototype for this jig at Andrew’s workshop in Shropshire, England. I was there to learn, and when we got to the topic of inlay, Andrew produced a small flute case with a routed inlay groove pre-cut to use as a demo. He produced the prototype jig and said “...

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

08-08-2011 09:49 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

Like most of us, I get into different stuff that requires a bit more than soap and water to get off my hands and forearms. For as long as I can remember I’ve used the gojo, orange cleaner with pumice, mineral spirits, sometimes acetone, even gasoline to get the various stains, finishes and glues off. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the local Sherwin Williams paint store and saw this product for $3.49. I asked the manager if it was good stuff. He laughed and said that he couldnR...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

08-05-2011 04:58 PM by mafe | 20 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

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...
