Milwaukee Contractor Bag Review

Milwaukee Contractor Bag Review

09-08-2008 10:09 PM by toolman | 2 comments »

This review is for the Milwaukee contractor’s bag model number 48-55-3530. The dimensions are 24.5? L x 13? W x 14? H. This bag is made out of 600 denier material, so it is water resistant, not water proof which you don’t want for power tool storage. Never buy an tool bag that is water proof, because your tools will not be able to breath. If your tools can not breath, the moisture will eat away at your tools. One aspect we liked a lot was all the pockets. On the outside there are plen...

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

08-26-2008 04:18 AM by Tooldads_apprentice | 12 comments »

I bought a starter kit, at my local Home Depot, about a year ago and it is great. The package I bought included A Cordless Drill, A Impact Drill, A Circular Saw, A Radio, A Vacuum, A Reciprocating Saw, and A Sander. I have had only a few problems with it, but for my first set of tools, it is a great set. Problems that I have had include the chuck sticking on the Impact Drill. I wish this kit came with another battery and charger, but I went and bought the extra two batteries and charger. I wo...

Ok…I know your thinking this is a joke…but I assure you , my friends I am serious as a heart attack! Pencils these days are a sad conglomeration of strange MDF like material that feels more like rubber, and breaks easily when you try to sharpen it. Same with the leads…if your lucky enough to get a point on it after grinding down half the “pencil” in the sharpener it will break as soon as you put any pressure on it. Not at the tip…down low under the fake woo...

You can make your SketchUp model dance

You can make your SketchUp model dance

I just got this a few days ago and I love it already. That being said I should probably start with a description before I get questions about how many horsepower this router has or why the sander has a blue light on it. This is a navigation device that is used for 3D graphics programs. I have seen people at work use similar devices but they actually do CAD for a living. I only do SketchUp for fun but this device is amazing. When you move the knob it is exactly like you are moving the objec...

The Bowsaw

The Bowsaw

07-09-2008 04:24 PM by lethentymill | 5 comments »

Like the spokeshave, the bowsaw is very useful to the chairmaker. Some people like them, some hate them. Teaching evening classes have made me aware of this. If I feel that I’m in a corner; “Do I have to use this thing ?”If “People use them a lot more on the Continent” hasn’t worked, and “Do you know how much a good bandsaw costs?” hasn’t worked either; feeling that it is unreasonable to expect to learn a skill like this in half-an-hour I usually mutter something about how it’s another ha...

Great Shed

Great Shed

07-03-2008 10:11 PM by Zuki | 9 comments »

I know what you are thinking, why is a woodworker building a plastic shed. Three reasons: (1) to build one of the same size would be more expensive and (2) the marketing information says it takes 3 hours to install and (3) 5 year warranty. We have been needing a shed for a while and were eying these at Canadian Tire. When they finally went on sale we went for it. You definitely need either a trailer or pickup to bring this home. I tried to fit it in the back of my SUV but it was too bi...

Awesome! a solid performer after 20 years!

Awesome! a solid performer after 20 years!

I know, I know, Its not a true D4R that i have but its the exact same thing except for some improvements in the new D4R which i will mention. like i said the D4R is a solid performer. it takes a while to set up but once you are set up you can consistently and accurately cut as many dovetails as you want. and once you get some experience under your belt set up is a breeze. i love the adjustability so you can have almost any configuration you want and its great to have the whole 24” so yo...

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

06-13-2008 12:21 AM by Iffy | 5 comments »

This kit is really convenient. Sure you could gather all the pieces separately, but it’s nice to have them all together. The basin for the saw blades is really nice. You don’t have to worry about finding a shallow cookie sheet that might be used for food (and potentially getting someone mad at you). Just mix one part of the cleaner to 3 parts water and let your blade or router bit soak. After five minutes or so, use the included brush to scrub off the pitch and resin. Voila! Clean...
