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...

Milwaukee 3.5 HP Router

Milwaukee 3.5 HP Router

I feel compelled to review this router, since It runs a lot better than my old “tried and true” Porter Cable 7518 (the similar 3.5 HP model in the Porter Cable Brand, if you’re not familiar with the model no.) Warning, this is somewhat more of a comparison, but it’s also a review too. I have been running this unit with the 3.5” raised panel cutter. It has shown no signs of heating up excessively, no vibration, and the motor maintains its low speed setting w...

Fantastic for the price, terrible at high prices. For the non wood stuff.

Unless you are 100% hand tools, you will likely eventually be dealing with electricity in your shop. I have an old Blue Point digital multimeter from the mid 1990s that simply kills this thing hands down, but keep in mind, I bought that one 20+ years ago at a price of several hundred dollars. I misplaced the Blue Point and needed to know what was going on with my wiring. I needed a multimeter NOW, and I didn’t want to buy an expensive one. Harbor Freight to the rescue. After the s...

I’ve used them on a set of chairs and some other odds and ends. The fit and finish of veritas stuff is top notch and these work as advertised.

I’ve had it for about a year and it’s my go to joinery saw. It was a little grabby at first and I struggled with it starting. After a short amount of use it lost the grab and started performing like a champ. The only replacement I would ever get would be a Summerfield saw from Bob Summerfield at RMSaws.com

I’ve been using a heavily cambered #5 as a scrub. It was ok. I looked for a 40-1/2 on eBay for awhile but got tired of waiting for a deal so I got the LN version. I’ve been happy with it so far. I kinda prefer it to a bench plane with a cambered iron.

Measuring non-wood things in the shop.

Measuring non-wood things in the shop.

Many times in the shop you need to measure things that are not wood but is useful for your other tools. The Craftsman Digital Clamp-On Ammeter is a reasonably priced meter that measures both AC and DC current up to 400 Amps. I used it to measure some DC currents in the 80 Amp range and none of the typical DVM, or the three I have, or the old RCA analog meter have a range above 10 Amps. Other features of this Craftsman Digital Clamp-On Ammeter is auto-ranging AC/DC voltages temperature both...

Many years ago I already wrote a review of the Micro Jig Splitter Steel Pro.Last weekend I had to change the Zero Clarence insert on my Delta Unisaw and so I also had to re-install the Micro Jig splitter.I just want to write: what a fantastic little tool this is !!!!I have been using mine for many years and it works perfectly every-time.A simple and in-expensive tool that does what it it supposed to do perfectly and every time.
