Newest Partner in My Woodworking Escapade...

03-23-2010 02:02 AM by grub32 | 5 comments »

Hi all…I recently added this to my new arsenal of woodworking machines. Begins with a post that I read either here or on another forum about the old days and using lay-a-way. I saw this saw go on sale at woodcraft for the 999 price and I was excited and sad at the same time. I knew that I needed to upgrade because I didn’t really have what I needed to do what I am now looking to do. So, I was in the local woodcraft having a chat with the owner and we started talking about the ban...

Good Quality Control could make this an oustanding plane.

Good Quality Control could make this an oustanding plane.

Stanley tools has a problem. There was a time when Stanley was a name associated with high quality tools. Tools that could be relied on to get the job done. This was especially true of hand planes. Stanley was the king of hand planes for a long time. Then Stanley decided to make cheap tools and the rest is history. But hey, what’s that, a ray of light over the horizon? Could it be that Stanley wants to reestablish its good name for actually being GOOD? I think that was one of...

Harbor Freight 60" Workbench

Harbor Freight 60" Workbench

03-21-2010 04:42 PM by JohnGreco | 11 comments »

I saw this workbench on sale from Harbor Freight and figured at the price of $159, it was worth a shot. Note- At the time of writing this, the bench is on sale further, costing just $129. For the price I paid, I think it was pretty good, but for the even lower sale price you can’t go wrong. The top is Oak, about 1” thick with a thicker edge (so the edge you see in the picture isn’t the thickness of the entire table). It comes with an end vise (mounted to the right, yo...

Handplane Basics - A Better Way to Use Bench Planes

Handplane Basics - A Better Way to Use Bench Planes

03-21-2010 03:55 AM by michaelray | 10 comments »

I’ve written a review of the DVD Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes by Christopher Schwarz. I highly recommend this if you are interested in learning more about bench planes and their use. My high rating is also based on my experience with the customer service at Popular Woodworking’s Woodworker’s Bookshop. Check out my full review here on my personal blog. As I post this (3/20/10) I noticed that it’s currently on sale. Not sure how long th...

My New 'Favorite Plane'

My New 'Favorite Plane'

03-19-2010 05:21 PM by TheDane | 5 comments »

I have a new favorite plane. OK … every one of my planes has been my favorite at one time or another, but my new Veritas Apron Plane is now at the top of my list. A couple of technical details. The Veritas Apron Plane is a small, low-angle block plane that weighs in at about 14 ounces (much lighter than my Stanley 60 1/2). It is 5-1/2” long and 1-3/4” wide, and is made of ductile cast iron. I ordered mine with an A2 blade. The bed is set at 12-degrees, and the Norris-styl...

My new saw

My new saw

03-19-2010 05:03 AM by Tony | 40 comments »

Although I used industrial grade bandsaws in Jr and Sr High Shop Class, the only bandsaw I’ve owned is a Craftsman 10” bench top model. I’ve had it about 20 years, and it has been used for many model airplane and craft projects, but I’ve never been able to get it to cut anything over 1/4” reliably. I’ve been hoping to find a used 14” bandsaw around here, but they are scarce, or I’ve just been looking in the wrong place. I’ve done a lot of ...

Great new spray gun

Great new spray gun

03-18-2010 06:20 AM by sawblade1 | 10 comments »

Last week I received my new spray gun from woodcraft and was very pleased with the quality out of the box it had a good weight to it but not to heavy, it came with a cleaning kit, extra filters, and all accessories for adjusting and removing nozzles and tips from the gun. But where this gun excelled at was at spraying after testing with water I decided to try spraying a water based clear cote to my surprise no cloud of over spray like you get with other HVLP guns and very little and do I ...

Pink Tool Set for Ladies - Apollo Precision 39-piece

Pink Tool Set for Ladies - Apollo Precision 39-piece

03-16-2010 04:32 PM by EricWrights | 17 comments »

Apollo Precision 39-piece Pink Tool Set I suggest you this awesome tool set. It was really nice to be able to give a tool set to my wife that not only was sturdy and comprehensive but also aesthetically looked great with their shocking pink accents. I’m not allowed to use the pink tools so I’m told (I’m terrible for putting tools back in their proper place) but there’s no way I could confuse them with mine so I don’t think she has to worry! Great bundle...
