Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

02-24-2016 11:18 AM by OakHill | 1 comment »

Great attachment. If you need to cut small or thin pieces of wood or plastic you really need this Dremel accessory in your tool inventory. I have only tried it on about 6-7 cuts thus far. I found the best results when the work piece is clamped and in using two hands, one to hold the tool and the other hand to guide the Mini Saw works the best. Perhaps with practice this method will change. Just as with any other power saw, let the tool do the cutting, not the muscles in your arm. Well ...

Exactly What I Needed

Exactly What I Needed

02-24-2016 01:47 AM by smitty22 | 7 comments »

This set of silicone chisel tips/guards is exactly what I’ve been looking for since I started using chisels for serious woodworking. They are rugged and feel like they will survive quite a bit of use, fit standard flat chisels nicely, and are bright red so they don’t disappear in a pile of shavings. There are 10 of these in the set, about $10 or so. Shown here installed on a few of my chisels, at $10.00 for the set, not cheap, but sure helps keep the cutting edges from bangi...

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

02-23-2016 04:23 AM by Dark_Lightning | 26 comments »

I bought it today, after I found out that the Bosch REAXX GTS1041A isn’t going to be available for awhile yet, and I wanted to get a safer saw now, not whenever. The point of this post is to look at positive solutions you have come up with for MY alleged problems with the saw I just bought. That said- #1. The miter gauge is loose in the slots. (.010” “slop”). Yes, I know it is a contractor’s saw (edit to add- yes that is a Job Site Saw). I had expected better,...

Hard to imagine a better formula for learning woodworking

Hard to imagine a better formula for learning woodworking

02-22-2016 01:32 PM by cutndried | 8 comments »

I have been puttering away at woodworking for several years on my own, but wanted to get a better grounding in the craft and accelerate the curve of my learning. My preferred method of learning is intensive immersion in the subject, so the 12 week intensive furniture-making course at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine was appealing. All my hopes were met by the course. It was expensive, at $7450, but that is on a par with similar duration training at other top loca...

Smaller Shop Drum Sander

Smaller Shop Drum Sander

02-22-2016 05:00 AM by GersCustomWoodworks | 9 comments »

I got this as a time saver for me when sanding production parts. It works great for a smaller drum sander. Only two reasons I can’t give it five stars. The stand is way to short. But easy fix is just to add riser blocks between the stand and sander. The second is I really wish that they had made this sander big enough to open up to 3 1/2 inches to sand post sides. It only opens to about 3”.

Woodworking Essentials

Woodworking Essentials

A while back, I attended Lonnie Bird’s Woodworking Essentials Course – I would have to give it a 5 star rating. What a wonderful week! I met some great woodworkers and classmates, shared woodworking stories, and received very professional instruction from Lonnie himself, one of the Master Woodworker’s of our time. We would arrive each day and at our individual workstations, we would find all of the raw materials that would be used during the day. These raw materials were...

Fantastic Value

Fantastic Value

So over the years it’s hit me that the tool I reach for most often, and use ALL THE TIME, is the combination square. Use it for rough squaring, for marking and layout quick 45 degree marks, general measurement and marking of depth, etc. I’ve been using a cheap one I got at Home Depot—I think it’s the “empire” brand. it’s been adequate, but it’s not exactly square, and more annoying the rule doesn’t want to stay where you set it—t...

How to Win a Customer's Loyalty

How to Win a Customer's Loyalty

02-19-2016 07:16 PM by Ben | 5 comments »

This is more a review of Freud’s customer service rather than the SD508 itself. First, a short background: I’m a total beginner – I have no background in woodworking or family in construction or anything of the sort. I started hobby woodworking about a year ago. My start in woodworking was delayed a bit because I firmly believe in buying quality products once, instead of less precise stuff that leaves me with upgrade-itis down the road. So I saved my pennies and boug...

Hard to beat

Hard to beat

02-19-2016 01:52 AM by momalle3 | 9 comments »

I bought this for hobby shop work, mostly musical instrument making. it replaces the use of sanding spindles in a drill press. So keep in mind it is a HUGE improvement over that. I don’t have experience with other spindle sanders to compare it to This model is sold under various band names—Shop Fox, WEN, etc. I bought it at the local Woodcraft store. I had been looking at the Rigid oscillating edge sander, but there were just too many bad reviews of that thing and also I did...

Hand-operated scroll saw AKA fret saw

Hand-operated scroll saw AKA fret saw

02-18-2016 10:10 PM by Dutchy | 13 comments »

This is my first review contribution. Today I bought a well known brand hand operated scroll saw at the local hardware store for only Euro 6.50, with a full year warranty. It was cheap but despite this it has some nice benefits That’s why I want to share it with you. This saw is very environmentally friendly. It is usable in country’s with 230 volt but also in country’s where 110 Volt is used. It’s light weight but with sufficient strength. Saw blade change is easy to do without additional t...
