Nice Product, But Fantastic Customer Service

Nice Product, But Fantastic Customer Service

06-09-2017 11:13 PM by jonah | 3 comments »

This is one of those increasingly rare situations where a company simply blows you away with great customer service. I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with how Yost has treated me. I bought four 12” parallel clamps during a recent Amazon “deal of the day” promotion. With the discount, I felt like it was worth a shot on an unknown brand of clamps. I paid about ~$100 with tax for the four clamps. I’ve always wanted to have some 12” parallel clamps ...

One of the most important period furniture books published in a long time!

One of the most important period furniture books published in a long time!

06-06-2017 02:53 PM by StumpyNubs | 14 comments »

Read the print review, or watch the video review- your choice! This book has been out quite a while, it was published in 2011. And ever since it has had a home in my woodworking library because it is, in my opinion, one of the most important books about classic furniture to be published in a long time. That’s because the southern style itself has always been grossly underrepresented in the pages of woodworking books. There are shelves full of volumes on the furniture styles of Philadelphia...

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

06-05-2017 11:11 PM by jonah | 8 comments »

I love just about everything about this multi pack of clamp racks… except the pipe clamp rack. I don’t have any pipe clamps. Honestly, I wish I could have gotten a decent deal on a 2-pack, rather than the 3-pack. I wanted a parallel clamp rack and an f-style clamp rack, and this pack was the lowest cost option to get those two. The alternative was to get a 3-pack of either the f-style or the parallel rack and a single of the other one, or to get two singles. Amazon didn’t ha...

Craftex CX404 Damaged and DOA Out of the Box

Craftex CX404 Damaged and DOA Out of the Box

06-05-2017 05:33 AM by Shaun | 11 comments »

Thanks to everyone for the advice on dust collection a few months back. I decided to start with a decent dust collector that could pull off > 800 CFM. Being in Canada, we have limited options and sometimes it’s hard to choose a good piece of equipment. The equipment that everyone swears by might not be available in Canada or it might cost a mint to get it here. And it’s also noteworthy that even the most reputable company might produce a lemon from time to time. Having looke...

sharkguard

sharkguard

06-04-2017 05:25 PM by michelletwo | 20 comments »

installed my sharkguard without a hitch. Simple , and very well made product. I had no riving knife, or cover on my saw. I used it for 30 yrs just a blade sticking up . When I found this product I ordered it immediately and I am glad I had the sense to do so. Lee was good to work with and if I ever need any of his products , I will not hesitate to order from him again.

Resharpening- W.D. Quinn Saw Co.

Resharpening- W.D. Quinn Saw Co.

06-02-2017 03:04 PM by HassanMirza | 16 comments »

I had a chance to go see the W.D Quinn Saw Co. located in St. Louis, MO. I was looking for a place that would resharpen saw blades, only place that I could find was Woodcraft, when friend told me about W.D Quinn. I got in touch with them and Joseph (who runs the company along with his brother was very helpful). He offered to show me around if I was interested and I jumped at the chance to go. They have an amazing state of the art facility, this is not a bunch of guys that are covered in meta...

CRC 3-36 Multi-Purpose Lubricant and Corrosion prevention

CRC 3-36 Multi-Purpose Lubricant and Corrosion prevention

05-31-2017 08:11 PM by newwoodbutcher | 14 comments »

Granted we don’t have major moisture or rust issues in Southern California but untreated metal still does rust here. For the rust prevention process in my shop the first few years, I used Camellia Oil to prevent rust on hand tools and cast iron surfaces. It worked “OK” and it was expensive (about $15.00 for an 8 oz bottle). It went a long way but still. I used it dutifully with a kind of cool applicator that came with the first bottle I bought. Still there were these seemingly insignific...

Harbor Freight 2 hp dust collector modification

Harbor Freight 2 hp dust collector modification

05-30-2017 01:28 AM by wuddoc | 6 comments »

A number of LJ’s have written about the quality, problems, solutions and modifications concerning the Harbor Freight 2 HP 70 gal. dust collector. We have encountered all the same kinds of problems and decided to modify the unit. Minimizing equipment footprint is always a concern due to shop space. The HF DC took up additional space because the dust collector dual 4” plastic dust inputs extended out over the carts side footprint. In addition the base was flimsy as other LJ have indicate...

Silky Woodboy Dozuki Saw, 240mm ( X-FINE Teeth )

Silky Woodboy Dozuki Saw, 240mm ( X-FINE Teeth )

05-30-2017 12:41 AM by RichTaylor | 5 comments »

I picked this up on a clearance table at my local Woodcraft for half price. It is a beautiful saw, and the folding feature means I can toss it in my workbench drawer and not worry about damaging the teeth. It cuts very smoothly, and feels good in my hand. As can be seen in the photo below, it has a second locking position allowing the handle to be up and out of the way for flat cuts. Even though I got it for half price, if I lost it, I’d buy another one without hesitation. Sp...
