Worth every penny, i.e. Quality shines through

“It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand” Michelangelo While I realize the famous artist was talking about sculpting, had he been a modern day woodworker, he may well have been referring to a Two Cherries chisel. Having purchased and using a set of Stanley Bailey chisels that were not meeting expectations, I decided to step up and purchase a couple of individual higher quality tools in the sizes that get used the most. The company I work for stocks wooden handled Two C...

Quickest path to quality results

Quickest path to quality results

108 days ago by lumberjoe | 3 comments »

I have recently taken an interest in making wooden planes. I did the usual browsing around and found some free content with the basic ideas. I made a few planes based on some youtube videos and other articles. It went pretty smoothly. The problem is the planes sucked. While well constructed adjustment was always an issue and they required a lot of tinkering to get right. Then I happened upon Scott Meek and learned he produced a video on how he makes his smoothing plane. I purchased the dig...

A Pleasant Surprise

A Pleasant Surprise

108 days ago by Purrmaster | 14 comments »

This review for the coarse grade of sanding sponges. They are sold in packs of ten at Harbor Freight. I was over there and needed to sand some curved pieces so I picked some up. I also got some Norton 60 grit sponges elsewhere so I was able to do a direct comparison. I’ve also used 3M’s sponges in the past. Harbor Freight doesn’t specify the grit but I’d say it’s between 60 and 80 grit. I wasn’t expecting much from these sponges. I’ve used ...

These aren't boxes... they're little wooden dream cubes!

These aren't boxes... they're little wooden dream cubes!

A few months ago I got a copy of Dennis Zongker’s book and I’ve had a lot of time to digest it. I have to admit, I am just as in love with it now as I was when I first penned a review. So I decided to make a video… (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!) The video is based on my original written review, which is transcribed below: When I first saw Dennis Zongker’s new book I thought, MAN that sucker’s shi...

Upgrade for Stanley Knob and Tote

Upgrade for Stanley Knob and Tote

110 days ago by JohnChung | 4 comments »

I bought a Stanley handplane #4 made in Sheffield. Over the year I have upgraded the chip breaker to LV and my latest addition is the knob and tote. The service provided by Greg is simply excellent. I had to provide some feedback like the type of make it was including snapshot of the mounting screws the handplane was using. After the tote and knob was made, Greg sent me a photo of the set installed on a handplane. It really helps visualizing the upgrade. He took the time to choose the righ...

What a great idea

What a great idea

114 days ago by Andrew | 1 comment »

http://www.fullpro.com/products-purchase.php The idea behind these safety glasses is simple. Normal glasses, when worn with earmuffs, get uncomfortable (to me anyway). The earmuffs tend to pinch the “arms” of the glasses against the sides of your head. Also, they affect hearing protection, breaking the seal the earmuffs have around your ears. These glasses have straps instead of rigid “arms”. The straps attach to the outside of your earmuffs via adhesive Hook ...

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

114 days ago by tme4tls | 3 comments »

Last year I had a real problem breathing when I had to do prolonged periods of sanding during the winter months with the shop closed up tight to retain heat. I first though about getting a Trend Airshield but the weight sitting on top of my head during use wasn’t very comfortable so I started thinking seriously about a downdraft table. I wanted the Denray brand but the prices were more than I could afford and looked at the Grizzly models. Grizzlys pricing was more affordable and th...

No nonsense sharpening machine

No nonsense sharpening machine

114 days ago by ThorinOakenshield | 15 comments »

So, this machine is a glorified belt sander. Said glorification is however, not unmerited. I’ve been turning for less than a year, I purchased all my turning tools used, none of them had a consistent profile on them… until I purchased the ProEdge. I found myself hunting for other tools to sharpen. Cost: This unit is expensive and if I hadn’t had a gift card to knock a nice chunk of the cost down, I probably wouldn’t have bought it. The cheapest I've seen it is here....

Rudd Lacquer Sprays Well,  Nice Satin Finish

Rudd Lacquer Sprays Well, Nice Satin Finish

115 days ago by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

My local paint store quit carrying Valspar Pre-cat lacquer. Their replacement product is Rudd Duracat-V 550 voc pre-cat lacquer. It is billed as a vinyl, non-yellowing lacquer. I had the chance to use it on a recent project, and it compares favorably with Valspar, Sherwin Williams, and Magnalac. This lacquer is milky white in the can, compared to the yellow color of lacquers I have used in the past. I used the satin sheen, which looked like a hand rubbed finish after one coat. I sanded ...

Hi, First time posting,Long time reader I just finished my HF DC mod. When I first added a seperator with Theinbaffle I noticed a big drop in suction.

Seems Awesome. I would like to add a wynn filter at somepoint when I have $$$$. (I can’t see how any more air could flow through t...
