Pretty good so far

Pretty good so far

1704 days ago by Rick | 7 comments »

I just bought a can of this at a rockler store. I think it was on sale for $14. I was finishing up a christmas present that I wanted to use wax on and I wanted the best for this one. I had read other review and everything seemed pretty positive about it. My experience wasn’t any different. It “seems” to work well and I’m not really sure how much protection it provides. I was hoping that it would dry harder than it does. It also doesn’t dry “instantly...

Great value, can be honed to a razor edge and holds it well

Great value, can be honed to a razor edge and holds it well

1704 days ago by jake | 7 comments »

These are a great value and should be in every tool chest if your working with wood and can’t afford the high end tools. These are far and away a step up from the cheap tools you find at the big box discounters but not too much more money. They hold an edge well and with a little work can be honed to a razor edge. They hold their edge well, as I completed entire projects without sharpening them. One prior off brand set I bought were being sharpened more often than I was wood the wood. T...

Incra's 52inch LS positioner package!

Incra's 52inch LS positioner package!

1705 days ago by BigBard | 16 comments »

One year ago I began the quest to make things from wood. I have learned so much in one year and I still have a long way to go. After a satisfying purchase of a Incra1000se miter gauge, I thought I couldn’t go wrong with this LS positioner plunge. I was right, this system cuts extremely accurate. That micro-adjust knob is excellent, you can move it by the thousands of an inch. You can truly move the fence with shear accuracy. The wonderfence did take a few extra steps to square up but it...

Benjamin's Best 6 piece Anniversary Set

Benjamin's Best 6 piece Anniversary Set

1706 days ago by interpim | 8 comments »

I purchased this set of tools with a $10 coupon from Penn State, and have had about a week to put them to use. For the most part these are decent chisels, hold an edge well, and are beefy enough to prevent chatter.I knocked off one star due to the length of the chisel as a whole. I was expecting them to be a bit longer, They will suffice for work on my midi-lathe, but if you are getting into larger pieces I could foresee them being a bit of a hindrance. The chisels came with a decent g...

Sweet little tool

Sweet little tool

1707 days ago by Drewskie | 17 comments »

This is one of those tools that you buy for specific uses, so naturally I hemmed and haw for a while before purchasing. Over the last few months I have experienced using the Fein tool from time to time on different job sites. Once you use this type of tool you under stand the convenience, instead of breaking out you Japanese saw. I’m not one for long winded review, but I will say this Bosch always makes a quality tool and the quality, power and easy of use are on point with the Fein plus it...

Okay, I must admit that I’m becoming a Ridgid Fan. I used to think of them as just home depots in house brand. But Then I found out that they are made by emerson electric, the same company that made my, old Craftsman stuff that lasted forever. Any way I have been upgrading my shop, and I needed to replace myolder Luddel Benchtop drill press. So naturally, I went shopping. After reading many reviews of this one, I took the plunge. I’m not sorry I did, this is a good solid drill pre...

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

1708 days ago by Tim Dorcas | 42 comments »

I first saw a Laguna Bandsaw in 2006 at the Calgary Woodworking Show. Man was it impressive! It just oozed quality. And when they cut a burl veneer slice, it looked like it barely needed sanding. What can I say – I was hooked (I still have that veneer slice). However at the time I didn’t have the money for it and went on to purchase something else. I always kept that demo in mind. After trying for three years to get my bandsaw to accurately cut wood and spending a mini fortune ...

Smoothes air flow. HUGE improvement for dust collection on smaller machines.

Smoothes air flow. HUGE improvement for dust collection on smaller machines.

1711 days ago by dbhost | 11 comments »

To be blunt, I have never been truly happy with the dust collection on my Ryobi AP1301 13” planer. I mean it works and all, but it’s never worked well. Pulling from a shop vac fitted with a separator and a LOT of hose, I have always felt that the ribbed hose robbed me of too much air flow to be truly effective… I have used the square edge DC fittings the ones that step down at an almost 90 degree angle like the ones I got from Rockler, and was never pleased with the resul...

MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

1714 days ago by FlWoodRat | 8 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks, Tommy MacDonald at Major League Woodworking has done it again. Tommy is offering his first MLW DVD and the Grand Slam Tools 4-Pak as a Holiday Special for only $100. I’m very happy to have taken advantage of the opportunity. Yesterday I received my set. As expected, it was impecably packaged. Since Tommy’s 4-Pak (Bench Bat, Marking Gauge and two 1:6 paring blocks) has already been reviewed here, I will focus on the MLW Tool Box Project #1 DVD. The DVD is ...
