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...

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

I don’t know about you but I use screwdrivers allot around the shop. The problem is that there are so many different type and size of screws that I need several on hand at all time. They inevitably fall on the floor roll under the bench or simply disappear or blend in the mess on the bench top. Over the years I have bought several “multi “screwdrivers and they pretty much all were garbage. Now this one I must say is the “best screwdriver I have ever owned and will never buy an...

Storage Units

Storage Units

These little gadgets (cans) are recycled from another use, but come in very handy in the storage of misc. nuts, bolts, washers, etc. I own a small collection of these storage devices myself. This company produces several colors, versions and sizes. Other companys also produce these economical units.

Evapo-Rust Remover Works Great in 1 Hour

Evapo-Rust Remover Works Great in 1 Hour

02-22-2009 07:16 PM by AbenakiMan | 18 comments »

Wow. This stuff worked every bit as good as advertised!! A very generous friend of mine gave me a 9 1/2 Stanley plane that did not sell in the estate auction he held recently. Knowing I’m building my shop and having already bought a #4 Stanley plane from him, he gave me this completely rusted plane that needed some love and care. After doing some research on the web I came across this product and thought I would give it a try. I placed the disassembled plane in a baggy and poured i...

An Extinct Tool for Bending Wire!

An Extinct Tool for Bending Wire!

You can’t buy one of these anymore, but I thought it would be an enjoyable review. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a tool I acquired from my Father-in-law after he sold his house. He was thinning out his things, & I ran across this in a box of stuff. I have used this tool to make a multitude of things. I even made a 20’ long chain for my dog. There’s no end to what you can make with it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

This is a review of Chipping Away – http://www.chippingaway.com/ From their site: Chipping Away began operation in 1992 when Pop (Dennis Moor) took an early retirement and decided to keep a few cans of beans in the cupboard by means of selling his carvings. He soon found himself being asked to teach chip carving as well as present seminars at some of the local wood shows. Rogers Public Television asked him to do a television series of 45 individual shows in which he appeared as H...
