Seaonal item, they came in and wife picked them when shopping today, she noticed they were there. $6.99 for the set. They are 8mm, 13mm, 18mm, 24mm chisels. Nice handles, while they are sharp out of the packaging, they will of course need to be honed. So, I have been given the all go by the doctor to get bak in the shop. I have not benn able to do so for about 11 months due to the cold weather we had and then when I incurred a medical issue in March.of 2017. Will update aft...

Great little belt sander for the money

Great little belt sander for the money

09-15-2017 06:44 PM by papadan | 25 comments »

The Harbor Freight 1” X 30” bench top belt sander seems to be a pretty good machine. Well built and designed, it is easy to set up and use. Works equally well on sanding or grinding metal and wood items. The belts are reasonably priced and hold up quite well in use. The price of this machine is $54.99 and with the 20% coupon I paid $43 and change. I did rate this machine with 4 stars instead of 5. While it is easy to use, easy to change belts, and the dust collection works pretty...

MLCS (Katana) Lock Miter Joint Router Bit (w/Addendum)

MLCS (Katana) Lock Miter Joint Router Bit (w/Addendum)

09-14-2017 08:16 PM by Andybb | 6 comments »

Not really sure if this is a blog or a review or both. I don’t usually write reviews but I had such a good experience with this that I thought I would. Some background…. I needed to make some professional looking joints for some jewelry box drawer carcasses I was making with 1/2” stock. Someone suggested the Rockler Miter Fold Dado Set but at $350 it seemed a little spendy. That put me on to the Infinity Jr. Lock Miter bit for $70 plus another $10 for the setup bl...

Suizan Japanese Pull saws

Suizan Japanese Pull saws

09-12-2017 04:04 PM by HassanMirza | 11 comments »

I have gotten into cutting dovetails, and as you all familiar with the cost of the Western style push saw. I have read about how amazing the Japanese pulls saws are, so I got some, I am extremely happy with the quality of the saw, they are well made and the attention to detail has been really good. These saws are actually made in Japan not just stamped out in China. The blades on both of the saws were sharp and they cut through the maple with ease, I am extremely surprised and please with the...

Works well but is made of cheap junk that breaks easily

Works well but is made of cheap junk that breaks easily

Routers kick up a dust storrn that is both annoying and unhealthy. So when I saw a video for Oneida’s new router dust shroud I was excited and immediately bought one. It worked well but the plastic it is made of is so flimsy that the shroud popped out with use. Later, on the first day of use, part of the shroud cracked when the router was set on its side (gently). The sad part is that when it was working, the shroud was very effective. Another problem is that the recess for the...

my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

09-10-2017 05:22 PM by paulsss | 8 comments »

I purchased the Griazzly and was excited when it arrived and was set-up per instructions. I wanted this model because it ranged 1/8” to 3/4” blades. I do alot of smaller pieces, so having the 1/8” was a large part of making final decision. That’s when problems started piling up. I could not get the 1/8” blade to track, even after the tech support told me to take sandpaper to a perfectly good tire.The manual clearly says all calibrations are done at the shop...

Armor Tools Self Adjusting Horizontal Dog Clamp (junk)

Armor Tools Self Adjusting Horizontal Dog Clamp (junk)

09-09-2017 02:52 PM by lowrider | 3 comments »

I received an Armor Tools Self Adjusting Horizontal Dog Clamp for my birthday and now I’m disappointed with your product this is the second one that has broken in the same place. This is apparently a weak spot in the tool. I have pictures of the broken items if you would like a copy; also the shafts are not even the same size. I must not be the only one in the world having an issue with this item. I have went to your website and sent a couple of messages, if you feel this is not an issue...

Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint - First use review

Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint - First use review

09-04-2017 11:52 PM by diito | 7 comments »

Like most I’ve seen this paint advertised at Woodcraft. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of reviews of it out there and the Woodcraft guys I’d talked to didn’t have a lot of say other than it’s really thick stuff. The price was a little high and I’ve always had fantastic results with General Finishes Milk paint on projects that called for paint so I never seriously considered buying it. That is until I started a stuffed animal storage project for my nearly...

A modern galoot's dream

A modern galoot's dream

I’ve been waiting for this plane for quite a while—a year or so? I don’t think I’ve been so eager to get my hands on a tool since I decided to jump into woodworking and got my first #5 and old disston. At Handworks I had walked into the barn wondering if I’d see this plane on display, and sure enough, Rob & Terry were there showing it off. The price, $399, made me pretty nervous, but the case and two blade boxes included for preordering took the edge off a...
