Foot Switch

Foot Switch

01-25-2012 03:42 AM by Raymond | 2 comments »

I use my rotary tools alot and it can be a pain turning them on and off. I decided a foot switch was what I needed. So off to Menards I go to buy a switch, wire and plugs. When what do i see buy on clearance a 9 ft cord with foot switch for 3.99. It is used to turn on and off Christmas lights with out bending down. Great after reading the package the news got even better it will handle up to 10 amps, perfact for my rotary tools. I plugged the cord into the outlet, my rotary tool into the othe...

Well i was back at Menards the other day, I should get a PT job there seams I am always there. Anyways i bought the Wen rotary tool the other day actually 2 of them and then went bact to get one more, and I picked up this flex shaft accessory 19.99, 36” three ball bearing. Shaft is nice and flexible to get into tight spots. The posted pictures are from Milescraft I will post some from my shop. Keyless tool change is a real plus. Very compact and fits the hand well. If you need a flex sh...

Wen Rotary Tool

Wen Rotary Tool

01-17-2012 05:24 AM by Raymond | 5 comments »

I was at Menards the other day, and they had this Wen variable speed rotary tool on sale for 9.99 regulary 24.99. I could not resist and picked up two of them. Comes with 100 piece accesory kit. The variable speed works well and a keyless chuck is a nice touch. It’s nice and quiet to. Can’t go wrong for under 10.00 each. It is not to heavy and and is easy to hold. The spindal lock sometimes gets in the way, but that is probably how I am holding it. Here are the specs • Powe...

Eye-Fi Camera SD card with built in Wi-Fi.

Eye-Fi Camera SD card with built in Wi-Fi.

01-09-2012 04:44 PM by SPalm | 33 comments »

This is not really a woodworking tool, but Lumber Jocks need to post pictures, and this makes it a lot more fun. I recently bought a 4 GigaByte Eye-Fi SD memory card and plopped it into my camera. It helped a lot with my last posting on LJs. I had set up my little light tent and a tripod to hold the camera. As I took pictures, they instantly appeared on my PC. My wife and I were then able to see them, adjust the positions of the box and the lights, and click away until we liked what we s...

Long Ranger III (Remote dust collector switch)

Long Ranger III (Remote dust collector switch)

01-06-2012 02:43 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 30 comments »

Well, it came down to a matter of making my lazy A** take the unbearable three steps to reach my HF 2 HP shop vac and then the physiologically excruciating act of reaching down to flip the well concealed switch or parting with $61.00 that would give me gloating rights. So, here I am with the PSI, Long Ranger LR110-3 110-Volt 20Amp switch.After doing a considerable online research and reading all the reviews about what works with HF 2 HP/20Amp, I decided that spending the extra $11 on this ...

Save your money

Save your money

12-27-2011 04:49 PM by rrdesigns | 17 comments »

This jig is worthless and is being returned to the seller. The index pin is too short making registration with your workpiece difficult.The knob controlling the index pin is too close to the bottom of the jig and is difficult to set because of its small size and location. More importantly, it does not maintain its setting. It loosens slightly as you progress through your joints ruining the spacing in your workpiece. The workpiece likes to pull away from the fence (when used on a router table)...

Great Earmuffs

Great Earmuffs

12-24-2011 04:36 PM by Vaborn7795 | 3 comments »

This is my first review and most all my tools already have a ton of reviews already, so i thought i would review my earmuffs. These things were only $23 on amazon and plug right up with my iphone. The sound quality is outstanding and the ear protection is great as well. With machines running and volume only half to 3/4 the way on, I could easily hear the music i was listening to. Most will probably not even need it turned up that high. I am already starting to loose my hearing, so I prob...

The easiest paint I have ever sprayed

The easiest paint I have ever sprayed

Just a heads up to any Irish woodworkers on here. General Paints WB50, made in Celbridge, has got everything going for it. Three sheen levels, mixable with any of the Colourtrend/Crown/Dulux paint systems, quick drying, can be applied as low as 5degC, excellent coverage, excellent flow out. Only needs good airflow to dry (desktop fan works for me).I used to use Becker Acroma WB enamel, but always found it difficult to get a flawless finish on large surfaces, one slight overlap/underlap and yo...

Just wanting to give an enormous heads up to the folks at Woodcraft customer service dept. especially Sam ;) Not sure this is the right place to post but this doesn’t really come under any of the given forum topics and is a “review” of sorts so.. A few weeks back I placed an online order with Woodcraft to take advantage of the cut price on Woodriver planes, I ordered a No.4 and also a wood thread cutting kit.They got back to me saying they couldn’t charge my card. I...
