This stuff really works!

This stuff really works!

Many of you probably have used this stuff before but it is new to me. I mean I have seen it around for years but never thought much of it till I picked up the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle Sander (pictured above). I have noticed a number of lumberjocks with this machine. You can pick this up from many different manufactures and at many different outlets but I happened to get mine at Harbor Freight for $4.99. That seemed like a reasonable gamble not knowing how well this type ...

Works well after you work out the kinks

Works well after you work out the kinks

05-05-2009 09:43 AM by cmaeda | 4 comments »

I got this so I can make my own vises. I also bought some 1 1/4” dowels to go along with it. This does require some practice to use. The instructions are very sparse and the construction was kind of cheap. The guide that is screwed onto the threader was installed incorrectly so it was difficult to remove. The threader had some scratches and small gouges on it. The tap was fine.I tried it right out of the box. I followed the instruction, soaked the dowel in some BLO and then start...

Horton Brasses = reputable service

Horton Brasses = reputable service

04-17-2009 10:25 PM by Don Newton | 11 comments »

Lumberjocks, Quite often our reviews are for hand tools or machines, and rightly so, but the crowning touch to many furniture building projects is hardware. I am a hobbyist who enjoys building period furniture. The hardware available at Horton Brasses is second to none, whether it is a pair of hinges or a set of Chippendale style pulls for a highboy, and their customer service department is the model that all company’s should aspire to. As a consumer with choices, who’s mone...

Perfect broom for cleaning up the shop

Perfect broom for cleaning up the shop

04-03-2009 01:44 AM by GaryK | 16 comments »

Not exactly a woodworking tool, but a tool for the shop that everyone needs. Tired of getting the sawdust out of tight spaces? These little brooms do an amazing job. In Tagalog they are called a “Walis tambo”, and you can pick them up in most Asian stores and probably Pier 1 Imports. As far as I know they only come in the longer version, so I just cut one down to use on the bench or tablesaw. They get into the tightest places, behind, under and around things. They are ...

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

03-27-2009 04:08 AM by handi | 6 comments »

If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit. Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. ...

Pulling nails... it doesn't get any easier than this.

Pulling nails... it doesn't get any easier than this.

So I’m new to this whole wood working thing. In the short time I’ve been doing some renovation work to my house, I’ve found the biggest headache I have is removing fasteners from wood I want to reclaim, or reuse. With what I had on hand I had the tendency to get a little frustrated and literally destroy the wood during a fit (must be my Irish blood), or marring it to a point it was rendered useless. While searching online a week ago I found an interesting device (i won&...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

03-16-2009 03:11 PM by NetPro | 12 comments »

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...
