What a difference !

Last week I received by mail the set of three Footprint planes I bought from Sears on the Internet. I bought them because the price was right and it seemed to be a good value. IN the last month or so I spent countless hour son the Internet reading about hand planes; what the different planes are and what are their respective use, how to tune and how to use them. Of course I have used hand planes before but I really never paid attention to them, I just used them. Lately I found out that they a...

Jet 17" Floor Standing Drill Press

Jet 17" Floor Standing Drill Press

03-07-2010 05:29 PM by Jarrhead | 7 comments »

When I started wood working, a drill press was one of my first tool acquisitions. I bought a Delta 12 inch benchtop model, that has served me well, and continues to do so. Last year when I embarked on the “21st Century Workbench” project (see my project posts), I knew that the little Delta wasn’t going to be up to the task. It doesn’t have the necessary spindle travel to get through 3 inches of lumber, which was required for drilling the dog holes. There had been a...

Excellent Finish Sanding Solution

Excellent Finish Sanding Solution

03-06-2010 10:30 PM by TheDane | 18 comments »

I have been looking for a better sanding solution for door frames, small panels, drawer boxes, etc, and I think I have found it. I ordered an 18” x 2” V-Drum The Works kit from Stockroom Supply (http://www.stockroomsupply.com) in Ontario, Canada. The Works kit includes the 18” drum, bearings, 2 – 10yd rolls of sandpaper, 2 balanced pulleys, Linkbelt, and a plan to build the box. Total cost to build this machine, including the V-Drum kit, motor, materials, and ...

value drill press

value drill press

A little more than a week ago I was in my local HD to get some sandpaper and saw that they had two new Ridgid 15” drill presses marked down to $150. With my military discount, they would sell it to me for $135. I had been thinking about a drill press though not too seriously but this was a price that was just too good to pass up so I got one. Set up wasn’t too difficult but there were a couple of minor issues. I’m not crazy about the gear track for the table height adjustment. As you c...

Great compressor!

Great compressor!

03-06-2010 05:01 AM by Beginningwoodworker | 14 comments »

I recently bought my Bostitch Trim Air compressor. from Amazon.com for $80.30 and UPS delivered it in a couple of days. There was no damage to either the factory packaging, nor the compressor. I am real impress so far. Pros Light weight., It is easy lug it around when I need to nail up some cabinets or trim. Powerful enough to run my finish and brad nailers. I have not tried it with a framing nailer yet. Noise level. At 75 db, the Bostitch I think its quietest in its cl...

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archives

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archives

03-06-2010 04:37 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

I had a change to test drive the Fine Woodworking DVD of the first 208 Issues of their magazine. It contains a PDF file of all 208 issues from Winter 1975 to the 208 issue in December 2009. The software loaded fairly fast on my computer, I’m not sure of the size but probably about 3 GB of space. Each of the individual issues are in a folder and they can be viewed with Adobe Reader and you can print etc the contents of the file. The front interface that runs when you click on the i...

Up-Grade  Miter Gauge

Up-Grade Miter Gauge

03-05-2010 11:56 PM by blackcherry | 11 comments »

I recently have been up-grading some of my tool and on my short list was my table saw miter gauge. I felt that it was OK but not up to snuff with what was newer on the market. I’ve been a Incra user for many year and have never been displeased with any of there products so I started looking around and found a new Miter 1000SE on E-bay for sale below the market price. It was on one of those buy now or make and offer kinda deals so I made a offer of 20 dollars below what it lists at an...

Great Product!

Great Product!

Hey guys, I recently received a shipment of tools from Lee Valley and I’ll be putting in a small review on all of them. A straight edge is something that I have never owned before. It’s not something that is easy to find in Newfoundland, Canada (along with any other woodworking tools). But with the purchase of a router table and the making of a mitre saw stand, my twenty dollar HD level was not going to cut it. I am very pleased with this product. The length of the body is conc...

Just a quick review of a service company. They also sell lots of blades and knives for just about anything I believe. I just bought a used grizzly Jointer and the knives had several small nicks in them. I looked around the internet and couldn’t find anyone who could sharpen them for a good price (in my opinion). Finally I found this company and shot them an email. They emailed me back promptly and let me know that it would be about $18 to sharpen them, which compared to $45 at other pla...
