Very Nice 23ga Pin Nailer

Very Nice 23ga Pin Nailer

04-25-2011 06:49 PM by Michael J | 6 comments »

Admittedly, this is my first 23ga pinner, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. However, I have 3 other Porter Cable nails gun, so I do have some frame of reference when it comes to pneumatic nail guns. I had done a lot of research on pin nailers and was just about to make a purchase when I came across a few reviews on the Rotek 23ga pin nailer. The reviews I read were very favorable and I liked the features that it came with, especially at the $99 price tag. I was origina...

Guinevere Sanding System Review

Guinevere Sanding System Review

04-25-2011 05:17 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 6 comments »

When turning bowls I have always been upset with the sanding that is required to remove the “rip outs” and the other soft areas. Well, I saw this tool online and checked it out. I purchased it last year and thought that I should add a review so other LJ had an idea as to it’s worth (MHO). As you can see in the picture it comes with a rounded head and a cylindrical head sanding attachment. Both are rubber bladders that when inflated hold the sanding piece in place. The...

For the past couple years, I have been using a 12” Swanson combination square. Its a good sqaure, but far too often I find it too big for the given application. I was constantly grabbing a 40yo Companion Try Square in order to avoid the cumbersome 12” combo sqaure. Unfortunately, the try sqaure is only graduated in 1/8s, and lacks the functionality of a combo sqare. All that said, I went to Sears in search of a smaller tool. I often times buy tools via internet. However, measur...

I haven’t been able to use the drill as much as the driver but I can definitely say that I’m very happy with this set! The impact driver takes NO effort to operate and the size and weight are a HUGE improvement over my standard Ni-Cad DeWalt! The ergonomics are perfect! The belt clip comes in very handy and you can flip the clip to the correct side for normal left-handed people ;) Heck, the charger itself is very impressive! 1hr charge time, cooling fan, maintenance mode, etc. I or...

As good as any in its class

As good as any in its class

So a few months ago, I decided I needed a thickness planer. Of course, having a tiny workspace meant I was limited to compact models. All my research indicated the higher end Dewalt and Ridgid planers gave the best results. That same research also indicated the lower end models were capable of reducing the thickness of a board, but snipe was basically inevitable unless you hyper-tweaked the tool and used an additional infeed/outfeed support table. I was dead-set on getting one of the better m...

My first review, I’m not a typist so I going to make this brief. I have wanted to learn SketchUp for some time now.,I have followed many courses on Google and other web sites but this really got me going. http://www.srww.com/blog/?p=1335 It’s from a wood worker that really knows this program. It helps if you have multiple monitors but if not you can watch and pause or you can even download a mpg 4 to watch offline.It starts you off building a Bedroom Side table and teaches you ve...

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archive 1975-2010

I don’t know about you, but I have wood working magazine addiction. You could say that I am a Hoarder. Woodsmith, Shop Notes, Fine Woodworking, Wood, Etc. I always found myself remembering an article, but not remembering where to find it. So probably like everyone else, I started tagging and making notes, using annual table of contents, etc. But always seemed to take more time than what I wanted to spend, looking for the article and or information. But then, along comes Fine Wo...

Hi All. If you’re in the market for a compact router kit that’s loaded with features, you owe it to yourself to check out DeWalt's new DWP611PK.

The Motor: The 7amp, 1 1/4HP soft-start variable speed motor delivers plenty of power for a myriad of routing tasks and the full-time electronic feedback maintains motor speed throughout ever...

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

I’ve purchased this saw ‘cause I owned the past model. It was supposed to be a big improvement. Surprise!!!, the main table was broken at the back, right where the Allen screw holds the saw’s main axle!!!. I’ve sent it to the service center and they kindly replaced the table at no cost…’cause the saw was under warranty still. I’ve seen the saw had a problem. It wouldn’t stay vertical, I mean it wasn’t cross cutting vertical, there was at l...
