Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

254 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 ...

Gilmer Wood Company

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

262 days ago by ChunkyC | 11 comments »

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

264 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 ...

My bench is screwy...

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...

3 Horsepower Compressor Duty Motor

3 Horsepower Compressor Duty Motor

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.

Incredibly good saw.

Incredibly good saw.

268 days ago by b2rtch | 7 comments »

I bought this saw on sale for only $19.99 well over one year ago.I bought it to replace a similar saw ( but not the same ) that I had before and which finally burn up after years of abuse.(I used to to do all my remodeling in my house).Even me, who “love” HF tools,I was hesitant to buy a saw for only $19.99 but after over one year of frequently using it I am delighted with it.I use it for all kind of different projects but mostly to take apart pallets made of pine , poplar and oa...

Just in time to make my cat happy - awesome festool catbox eq

Just in time to make my cat happy - awesome festool catbox eq

283 days ago by glen | 21 comments »

Well, I finally got my festool TS back from the recall. The people at festool were kind enough to include a free baseball hat and this amazing new festool catbox eq. I’ve used several other catboxes before, but this particular one shines. Our kitty, Peter (aka spiderman), is presently getting over an injured paw, so this catbox really perked up his spirit. The box comes with a standard brown cardboard finish, is about 1/8” corrugated material, has privacy flaps that open on ...

Milwaukee M12 Rotary Tool

Milwaukee M12 Rotary Tool

292 days ago by PatrickB | 4 comments »

Again this tool review is just my opinion. I have quite a few of the Milwaukee M12 tools and really like them a lot. I have the “other” rotary tool too. The “other” tool is still working, the Milwaukee is no longer with us. I do not feel I abused the tool, you know, hours and hours of running with no breaks, battery after battery until the cover melted.LOL None of that, I feel I used the tool in the way it was designed to be used and with in about three months of owner...

Shopsmith 40 grit sanding discs (5")

Shopsmith 40 grit sanding discs (5")

296 days ago by Purrmaster | 5 comments »

I discovered these at Lowe’s about a year ago. Often I have need to sand out a defect and the lowest grit discs gets it done the most quickly. These discs are 8 hole, hook and loop (velcro) 5 inch discs. I’ve been very pleased with these discs. They cut pretty quickly and them seem to last a long time. Not as long as Abranet, but they’re pretty durable. These discs compare favorably with Diablo, 3M, and Norton (the other brands I’ve mostly used). These thi...
