Great Cutting Board Finish!

Great Cutting Board Finish!

03-25-2011 03:01 PM by zindel | 30 comments »

Last summer I was working on a cutting board my girlfriend and looked deeply into what i could use to finish it. I considered the normal oil and wax, however that needs to be reapplied after some time of use. I then stumbled upon this salad bowl finish by General Finishes and all i can say is WOW! The cutting board i made for her last summer still looks great and fully water proof. You can take a look for yourself: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44940 This is after almost daily use for...

Hammerite Rust Remover Gel - A Product Review

Hammerite Rust Remover Gel - A Product Review

03-24-2011 08:46 PM by Brit | 18 comments »

Recently I posted a restoration story of an old Skinner 6” sweep brace (you can read it here if you missed it) where I used Hammerite Rust Remover Gel. Since people showed a lot of interest in this product, I thought I would do a proper review as I use it to clean the saw plate on a wonderful vintage Spear & Jackson hand saw. You can read all about this gorgeous piece of English heritage here. The gel is available in three sizes: 75ml, 100ml, 225ml and 750ml. I bought the largest size ...

Well, even though I‘ve had a Wixey Protractor( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/549 ) that is dead on 100% accurate, measured against all my engineering squares and then some, At only $15 on sale, I could not resist picking one of these up.Why you might ask. Well, The Wixey even though is accurate; it has two main shortcomings. One, it is impossible to lock it in place. Second, it does not have the hold function, which should have been incorporated since it will not lock tight.On the other hand...

I think they are much better than the usual doubble stick tapes such as carpet tape that I’ve been using for years. These tabs come in a variety of sizes and are intended for use as refills for many clips, hangers, etc used for wall hanging.When you use them wood to wood, wood to metal, etc just leave the tab exposed and when comes time to remove them pull the tab to release the adhesive, no sticky residue to clean up, no damaged wood surface, no struggles, no hassle. They are ...

Might want to spend a few extra bucks

Might want to spend a few extra bucks

03-22-2011 07:30 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

So it seems in the world of scratch awls, the price range seems to be $4.50-24.50. Sure, there are plenty of examples of awls that are priced higher and lower, but 95% seem to fall in this range. The General 818 is in the cheap camp at $4.50. When I decided to buy this tool, my school of thought was “its a glorified nail fastened to the end of a stick, how could a manufacturer possibly screw it up?” In other words, I figured the $4.50 tool was probably almost as good as the more e...

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

03-22-2011 06:55 AM by thamar | 20 comments »

As part of my shop upgrade, I decided to ditch my old “Mule” sliding table. I ordered the Laguna Professional Sliding Table. The website indicated that it would fit my Delta Unisaw and the person I talked to at Laguna said that some of their customers had mounted it on Unisaws. Once I received the sliding table, it just didn’t seem to me that it would fit my right tilt Unisaw. The right hand mounting bracket would have gotten in the way of the tilt wheel. The sliding...

The Artisan Flamingo dovetail marker

The Artisan Flamingo dovetail marker

03-21-2011 01:23 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

About a year ago I managed to stumble across a friend, Julio Alonso Diaz is a fellow woodworker and lover of hand-tools. It’s not surprising that we got along. Anybody who has seen some of his work can say that he has really dedicated the time to become good at it. And then he started making tools, a dangerous move. Mostly for my pocketbook. He started making these dovetail markers out of fruit-wood and exotics (mine is Cherry and Wenge). I wanted one from the first minute and went o...

Finally - a real table saw!

Finally - a real table saw!

I didn’t do any actual woodworking today, but I did do the next best thing – I got a new (to me) tool and worked on it! I bought a used Craftsman 221240 for $200 last week and it was delivered today, 3/19/2010. I paid to have it moved since it weighs about 400 pounds and I didn’t have an easy way to move it myself. Otherwise, my plan was to take it apart and move it that way. Now I almost wish I’d done that since I just about took it all apart anyway after it was de...

Anti Slip Tape

Anti Slip Tape

Well, not much to talk about here except if you don’t have any around the shop, you may consider getting a roll it’s around $6.00. It’s perfect for that none slip miter fence. I can find few more uses for it I’m sure. Peel and stick and 2” x 96” inches.
