Business review for acmetools.com! Amazing, customer service is outstanding!

254 days ago by Micahm | 11 comments »

I am writing this review to tell my experiences with acmetools.com. I had many inquiries about tools I was purchasing that were going to be freight items. They answered every question I had about the tools, every question about the freight and more.They were very polite, helpful, and answered questions completely. Oh and the freight shipping was free and since out of state no tax!! I was also ordering a anvil, the manufacturer was back ordering the one I had purchased. I was uneasy about it t...

Doweling Jig Kit - Good Idea - Poor Quality

Doweling Jig Kit - Good Idea - Poor Quality

257 days ago by Dan Tindall | 7 comments »

As a followup to my post in the project blog, I thought that I would post a review of this product. I’ve used it now to drill about 64 holes and I can say without a doubt that this product is a good idea that was not executed very well. First, the “dial a size” portion of the jig is attached via a screw and cannot be tightend enough to keep it from wobbeling. Next, the alignment markers are very hard to read and the jig was difficult to position on smaller stock. T...

Northern Tools has incompetent managers

Northern Tools has incompetent managers

A Rant on Northern Tools Phone Customer Service: A product I purchased turned me from just wanting to know where my purchase was to being POed quickly. The agent that I was speaking to over the phone had told me that UPS had delivered my item to the USPS for delivery. Based on my UPS tracking number, it said this was done two days ago. I then asked for a status update as to when I should get my item since the USPS doesn’t take three days to deliver something from less than 40 minut...

Foredom TH 1/3 hp flex shaft tool?

Foredom TH 1/3 hp flex shaft tool?

275 days ago by PatrickB | 5 comments »

I love this tool. I use it quit a bit for a variety of odd jobs but mostly for sanding and some filing. Right out of the box I was impressed, the motor feels substantial in my hand, beefy even. Everything was well packaged and no damage evident. I also purchased the right angle grinder kit at the same time. I have some sanding drums for it too. I do not have a hanger for this but I would highly recommend getting the hanger although it’s not an absolute. I set on my bench top sometimes ...

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

292 days ago by HillbillyShooter | 24 comments »

Some time ago, and without going into details, water got onto the out-feed table of my PowerMatic 60 long bed jointer. I use TopCote (now made by Bostik) on a regular basis to protect my tool tops, but it didn’t help prevent the rust or remove it. I was able to get the “red” rust off with steel wool and Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection. However, a black/gray stain remained which I couldn’t get off. This stain is shown in the second picture above. Recently I learned about a ...

Just got back from Portland Or. with some Doussie 8/4 planks. Could not believe the stock theyhad, price was fair in my opinion $10 bd/ft. Was a little concerned about crossing border back into Canada, but no problems at all. I have bought a large amount of exotic woods on line which was shipped by post with no problems except cost! Anyone interested in some really nice wood, be sure to check out Gilmer’s in Portland.

Shop Dog Approved Mats

Shop Dog Approved Mats

I’ve been using anti fatigue mats and even carpet remnants in the shop for a long time. I have a couple different styles and both are better than standing on concrete but still not great. I’ve had / used the rubber mats in the garage / barn for a long time but I finally moved one into the shop and bought 2 more today. They are 6’ x 4’ x 3/4” thick solid rubber mat stamped Made in Canada. I would say, not knowing for absolute certainty, that they are made fr...

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

303 days ago by JoelB | 7 comments »

Just bought this to save my back when a client spec’d a project that required 20 sheets of 3/4” MDF. The Troll is an awesome back saver that makes it very easy to move sheet goods around the shop. My storage is roughly 75 feet away from my tablesaw so I needed a simple and inexpensive way to move the 20 sheets around with a minimum of lifting. Basically, to use, you lay the Troll against the sheet at about midpoint. Then you lift/tilt the panel until the lip on the bottom of ...

This is a 24” wooden screw, from Evans Wooden Screw Co. This one is cherry, with a funky vice hub, perfect for using it without a handle. Matt Evans site, has free sketch-up plans and instructions for just about every imaginable configuration of these screws. He also sells Moxon kits and smaller wooden screws. This particular set-up cost $160, it included the screw, the nut and the collar. A deal, considering each is handmade in his Indiana shop. Only issue I had, was the collar...

When I rebuilt my Powermatic 8 inches jointer I installed this motor in to replace the 3/4 HP the jointer came with. http://lumberjocks.com/b2rtch/blog/31439 This motor has been working flawlessly since then.For the ridicule price I paid for it (around $100.00), this is an excellent buy.I strongly recommend it.
