I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....

Woodhaven Shelf Pin Jig

Woodhaven Shelf Pin Jig

05-25-2009 04:38 PM by Chris | 11 comments »

I was half way into my current project of building a pair of Chimney Bookcases when I realized I would benefit from a shelf pin jig instead of trying to make my own. I have very little time for my hobby lately and so using a pre-made jig is far more cost effective for me so I borrowed this Woodhaven jig from a friend. The package comes with the pins that let you align it to the side of the workpiece (with extras) as well two other pins (5mm & 1/4”), the 1/4” is shown in the...

Half-Blind Dovetail Jig

Half-Blind Dovetail Jig

I found this at Busy Bee Tools in Canada, during one of their sales. Normally it retails for $99 CND and at that price I would rather hold out and save a bit more for something of a better name, but for their sale price of $52 CND, I figured it was at a price point that was worth the risk. Overall, the jig is not too bad, it works pretty standard as similarly designed jigs, like Rockler’s, and has a removable aluminum plate that can be changed out for various other sizes. Clearly...

A great product

A great product

05-15-2009 04:04 AM by Karson | 19 comments »

I’ve used this product for years. I picked it up at a wood show and I’ve not seen it since. You can buy it online, but I need to find a supplier. I use this product on bandsaw blades, especially good when resawing. I also use it on my Mortising machine to lubricate the drill bit in the chisels. It makes the chips slide easier and cuts down on the heat generated by all of the wood going through the chisels. The Par Enterprises web site

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...
