Evapo-Rust this stuff really works!

Evapo-Rust this stuff really works!

01-12-2014 08:33 AM by darthford | 13 comments »

I’m rebuilding a 1952 12”-14” Delta radial arm saw which turned out to be more rusted than I thought. I had read recently about this Evapo-Rust product and decided to give it a try and wow it really works quite well. Here’s some before and after pics. I thought I was going to have to chuck this in my lathe and have at it with sandpaper, instead I just soaked it overnight in Evapo-Rust and rinsed with Simple Green under the faucet, effortless!

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

01-09-2014 11:23 PM by Jerry | 8 comments »

I got this wonderful little guide for Christmas and just now had my first opportunity to try it out. It took me a couple of minutes to wrap my head around how it works, but once I did, I was pretty impressed. You set the clamp in one set of grooves for the tails, and then slide it off and set it into a second set of grooves for the pins. I say set of grooves, but that’s somewhat misleading. There are three grooves in all, but the center groove serves double duty and is used in both orie...

procom ventless garage heater

procom ventless garage heater

01-02-2014 02:16 AM by Nowa | 21 comments »

It is 10 below zero here in Minneapolis. With this little procom ventless heater, it is 72 degrees in my garage. http://www.usaprocom.com/product_category.php?choice=1&sid=1&prod=21 I am extremely pleased with the purchase. It mounts to the wall with 2 screws and takes a natural gas line that our hvac technician was able to run up from the basement and hook up in 35 minutes. Since there is no external vent, I did not have to run a stack out through the roof. The results sp...

Great hinge for cedar chest

Great hinge for cedar chest

12-27-2013 09:28 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I forgot to take a photo of this hinge installed in a cedar chest before I gave it to it’s intended recipient. This is a stock photo. This is a well engineered solution when you want a hinge that will hold the lid open and you want a soft close. It comes with directions for a 70 and 105 degree openings, but you can adjust for other size openings with trial and error or good math skills. I followed advice from the forum and used a piano hinge coupled with two of these. I had trim a...

Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp

Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp

12-24-2013 01:39 AM by SirFatty | 10 comments »

This is a review of the Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp. Purchased today, it was on sale (in store) for $29.99. The construction is all metal, I assumed that there would be some plastic involved, but was pleasantly surprised when the box was opened. The only plastic are the magnifier cover and the knob. The fluorescent tube in circular with 22w of light and no buzzing or flickering. The 5” magnifier is clear, no obvious imperfections. The arm articulates with litt...

Worth the Premium Price

Worth the Premium Price

12-22-2013 07:03 PM by Mark Davisson | 13 comments »

First, I’m sorry about the photo. Sandpaper is not extremely photogenic. I’m a fan of Allan Little’s “AskWoodMan” YouTube channel. He talked me into paying the premium price for this product a little over a year ago. I ordered 6 sheets (9X11) of 5 different grits (80, 100, 120, 150, 180 and 220) at just under $1 per sheet. I created a sanding station using 1/4 sheet of each grit. My intention for this station was to sand long strips of walnut and oak pict...

A Real Toolsaver

A Real Toolsaver

12-21-2013 12:46 AM by Mark Davisson | 15 comments »

I bought this metal detector about 4 years ago when starting to recycle some black walnut trim from our old farmhouse. I could see some exposed heads of the old steel spikes but was concerned about what I couldn’t see, and I didn’t want my planer to be the first to know. It performed beautifully, finding several hidden spikes, and I ended the project with my planer blades unscathed. This isn’t a tool I use often, but it has helped me on a few occasions to find nails in ...

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

12-19-2013 06:11 PM 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

12-16-2013 03:06 PM 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

12-07-2013 12:05 AM by Mike | 24 comments »

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...
