3 Piece Curved Jaw Locking Pliers Set

3 Piece Curved Jaw Locking Pliers Set

06-26-2011 05:05 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

What a great set of 3 locking plyers 5” 7” and 10”. 6.99 holds tight, nice confortable handles. Adjusting screws work smothly and the jaws don’t move from side to side when you apply pressure. Nice deep groves in the jaws to hold tight. Jaws did not spring either when really reefing on them. Another great find

6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit

6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit

06-26-2011 04:33 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

An odd find that actually works very well is this 6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit i bought it with the idea to use it as a power chisel. I adaped some wood working chisels to work with this. It is very quiet yet has 3500 BPM and an air consumption of 4 cfm at 90. It is a nice compact unit and fits the hand well. I have used it to remove a great deal of wood that with a chisel and hammer would have taken much more time. Other features are built in regulator to vary the amount of force applied. F...

Sanding a mirror surface

Sanding a mirror surface

06-26-2011 04:24 AM by gko | 6 comments »

Bosch 1/2 sheet sander After using 1/4 sheet sanders or random orbit sanders on my table tops I usually end up with a bit of a ripple when I varnish or lacquer the top. I have a planer but even after planing I always seem to have these slight ripples after sanding. In Flexner’s book he uses what looks like a half sheet sander (can’t confirm, a WC owner borrowed my book I bought from him after telling him how good it was) and a carpenter friend said he really liked the 1/2 sheet Bosch so ...

Compact Air Die Grinder Kit

Compact Air Die Grinder Kit

06-26-2011 04:20 AM by Raymond | 0 comments »

I was looking for a die grinder, and came across this little one 1/4 and 1/8 collets. This is an outstanding little grinder for the money 14.99. Lots of torque. It did not bog down when using a power rasp to remove stock from a piece of oak. At 4 cfm at 90, and 21,000 rpm it has tons of power. Fits the hand well and does exactly what I want it to do. Fit and finish is great. Again no air fittings. Another Harbor Freight tool I would recommend.

1/4" Pistol Grip Screwdriver

1/4" Pistol Grip Screwdriver

06-26-2011 04:14 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

As you can tell I was looking for a few air tools. This little guy is awsome. Tons of torque, drives 3” screws like mad. I can drive about 25 before my compressor kicks in Runs at 4 cfm at 90 psi. Great preformance forward and reverse. The direction selector is conviently located. Again no air fitting included. At 19.99 can’t go wrong, and a one year warentee. Nice fit and finish and great packaging.

Another jem I picked up at Harbor Freight, this little inline air screwdriver really works well. 6 cfm at 90 psi, this little guy is an impact driver and really drives the screws home. Quick release chuck accepts standard hex drive bits. Another 19.99 Gem I highly recommend. Like most air tools from Harbor Freight no air fitting was included. Packaging was great and again has the 1 year warentee. Finish is suprisingly good. Fits the hand well and has ample power in forward or reverse.

Harbor Freight Air Drill

Harbor Freight Air Drill

I reciently was at Harbor Freight and picked up a few goodies. I have been looking for a few air tools lately and since I have had good luck with Harbor Freight tools I figured to give them a shot. My first item was the 3/8” Reversible Air Drill With Keyed Chuck and Key 19.99, 5 cfm at 90 1700 rpm. Out of the box it looked great no packing grease to remove, packaged nicely in bubble wrap with instructions and a chuck key, no air fitting (would be nice if that was included). I have been ...

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

06-25-2011 05:30 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I was beginning to think I would never have much luck resawing on the bandsaw. I had been using Delta blades that were pretty well worn. I wanted a blade that would slice 3/16” veneers that I could plane down to a consistent 1/8” thick for laminating leg stock. This blade fits the bill. Give the man at your local woodworking store a $20 bill in exchange for the ability to resaw with ease. This is a 3 tpi X 1/2”wide hook blade with a raker set. As such it is very aggres...

Grizzly 8" jointer -- first impressions

Grizzly 8" jointer -- first impressions

06-24-2011 11:32 PM by glassyeyes | 12 comments »

I purchased the Grizzly G0656 helical head 8” jointer on June 11, and received it a few days ago. I have assembled it and tested it, and feel it is a good—though not perfect—tool. My rating also takes into account that this is very reasonably priced for an 8” helical head jointer; I would expect a little better fit and finish, with fewer issues, on a higher-priced machine. PICTURES: Plenty of pictures are available online: I included these to show a simple way to...

What an upgrade for an old Craftsman TS

What an upgrade for an old Craftsman TS

06-23-2011 03:47 PM by brtech | 9 comments »

I’ve got an older (Emerson) Craftsman TS (113.298240). The stock fence is a joke, but I’ve made do. I finally decided to do something about it, and a T2 was it. Got it at Tools-Plus for $148 + 6.50 shipping. It came pretty well packed via UPS. The box was a bit caved in, but the parts were fine. Excellent manual, very clear, real English. The fence is made in Taiwan. Fit and finish appear to be excellent. There are two ways to mount the fence to this TS. One is to dril...
