Oneida Dust Deputy Cyclone

The SDD replaces a “Frankenvac” HF through a Thein separator to a plastic barrel, using Rockler quick-connects to each tool. I replaced the HF impeller with the Rikon, and what a difference! I am blessed to be able to just vent outside, so fine filtration is not a concern. The assembled collection corner is amazingly quiet, and has quite a lot ( don’t have the ability to measure airflow) of suction – even on the far end where the SawStop lives. I read of so...

Inexpensive But Worthy

Inexpensive But Worthy

08-23-2016 11:24 AM by DonB | 2 comments »

I purchased a Earlex 2901 spray station primarily by price over the advertisement. Being on a fixed income, I try to get the biggest bang for my buck. On LJ, Earlex suggested the 2901 as a good entry sprayer. It is light as it is mostly plastic except for the guide and spray needle, which appear to be brass. So far I’ve used it to spray water based finishes such as poly, and various kinds/colors of acrylics. I have not had to thin any material. I considered this when I used acryli...

Premium Wax with UV protection

Premium Wax with UV protection

08-22-2016 07:52 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 2 comments »

Not to wax the issue… All waxes are not created equal; Years ago, I used Automotive and Minwax paste waxes. Yes they do the job, but for the work that I do (the pieces are getting an extremely amount of sunshine (UV). I currently use a clear wax from http://www.sculptnouveau.com/ ($30 for 8oz.) My pieces endure direct exposure in the AZ sun. My understanding is: 1. your project 2. Your finish (paint, stain and a clear finish). In order to protect the 3 previous steps from UV destruct...

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

08-22-2016 01:26 PM by PPK | 5 comments »

I thought about blogging this, but didn’t know if that was the right spot to put it. Here’s my shameless plug for using paste wax/car wax for woodworking! I am not particular to one brand over another. They all work quite well. The main thing that makes them good is the carnauba wax. This is a really tough wax that stays in place for a long(er) amount of time. I use car wax on my steel surfaces, such as my tablesaw, jointer, bandsaw, etc. This protects them from rust, and...

Outstanding Work-holding System

Outstanding Work-holding System

08-21-2016 10:03 PM by TheDane | 2 comments »

I have been looking for a better way to hold work on the lathe, particularly for finishing the bottom of bowls and hollow forms. I have tried Cole Jaws, Longworth Chucks, jam chucks, etc. with varying degrees of success but nothing I was completely satisfied with. Then I saw the Frugal Vacuum Chuck … http://www.frugalvacuumchuck.com/ ... in a friend’s shop, and knew I had to have one. At a recent symposium, I connected with Frugal Vacuum Chuck inventor Bob Leonard and came h...

It lives up to the hype

I have been using Freud blades on my table saw and miter saw and have been well satisfied.The cuts on the table saw had become less than smooth so it was time to either get the blade sharpened and tuned up or to replace it.Like most hobbyists I read about how great the Forrest blades are and I guess I have been yearning to try one out.As it turns out over the past day or two I have been spending money like crazy on my woodworking tools and I guess I must have crossed the just get what I want ...

 Woodpeckers OneTIME Tool® - One Piece T-Square: TS-3

Woodpeckers OneTIME Tool® - One Piece T-Square: TS-3

08-18-2016 05:43 PM by cmmyakman | 2 comments »

I have three favorite tools in my shop and the TS-3 is one of them. The other two favorite tools are an after market glue container (FastCap Glu-Bot Glue Bottle (16 Ounces) available on Amazon) and my Saw Stop table saw. Woodpeckers is one of my favorite tool suppliers. I really enjoy their squares, triangles and the table saw set-up gauge (http://www.woodpeck.com/sawgauge.html). I also have a router lift (Sidewinder) that Woodpecker doesn’t make anymore (it has a crank on the side)...

Back in January at the woodworking show in Indianapolis I purchased this Earlex 5500 spray station. LJs very own Eaerlextech was there giving demos, and they had a special package price on the unit, plus a cleaning kit and 1.5mm needle. I’d been thinking about it a long time, so I jumped on it. I also ordered the non-lined spray cup for use with alcohol and oil based finishes. For my first project, I chose to spray shellac. If you are not an experienced sprayer, shellac is a good...
