Professional Miter Saw Stand - Great tool stand and very flexible

11-06-2010 02:00 AM by carnutakp | 1 comment »

I purchased this Miter Saw Stand after researching many other stands at Menards and Home Depot. I acquired the unit in April 2009 for $149.99 when it was on sale (normally $189.99) and I have found it a great product. A few months after buying it Menards had it on sale for $129.99 which would have made it an even greater stand. I have two miter saws (a regular 10” stationary and a 10” sliding miter) and wanted a stand that I could mount lboth saws on side-by-side. To do this...

Great jointer for a great deal

Great jointer for a great deal

11-06-2010 12:17 AM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

I picked one of these guys up second hand about 6 months ago and haven’t regretted it. It was already assembled, so I can’t speak to that aspect of it. Aside from having a little rust on the bed from sitting in a storage shed, it was in great shape. I’ve used it on a few projects and it’s always done everything I need it to do. I typically do not use a DC with it just because the area in my garage where it’s located is too far away. It does tend to fill up w...

Jack Rabbit deluxe - SHIPPING cost

Jack Rabbit deluxe - SHIPPING cost

11-05-2010 08:03 PM by ken_c | 8 comments »

So I was going to order a Jack Rabbit deluxe direct from Jack Rabbit Tool, so $46 is a fair price from what I can gather but when I went to place the order and i got to the shipping information portion there was one option – Shipping or Not and the price from Washington to Michigan – hold on to you coffee – $31 !!! $31 for a package that can easily go into a $5 USPS standard box – No thank you Jack Rabbit!!! I guess I will just replace my broken well used Rockler I...

Jet bandsaw motor replacement

Jet bandsaw motor replacement

11-05-2010 03:34 AM by kayakguy | 11 comments »

This is not so much a review of my bandsaw, as a discussion of issues I had with the motor, and the struggle I went through replacing it. I had origionally posted this under ‘projects’, but some folks had suggested it really belonged under ‘reviews’. So here it is. While re-sawing some 10” wide Walnut boards, I managed to blow out the motor on my bandsaw. The local repair shop could not fix it (they claimed it was a cheap motor, and not repairable). Jet wanted almos...

Fine Woodworking Online well worth the $5

Fine Woodworking Online well worth the $5

11-05-2010 02:03 AM by StumpyNubs | 11 comments »

My money is hard to come by and harder to justify spending. So when I do indulge in a woodworking subscription I demand a great deal of bang for my buck. Well, let me tell you, five bucks never went so far! I subscribe to Fine Woodworking’s online content, and it’s a five star find in my book. First of all, you get to read the magazine as soon as the newest issues come out. That means you don’t have to buy the regular mail subscription. I know, I also like the paper issue so I can read it ...

Lee Valley Short shank Drill bits A handy accessory

Lee Valley Short shank Drill bits A handy accessory

11-04-2010 10:25 PM by Bob #2 | 10 comments »

I’m starting to feel like the Official Greeter at Lee Valley but here goes.I picked up these bits on a hunch that they would prove useful and now they are part of my mobile drill kit.The size is just perfect for many jobs like starting screws, fitting hinges, etc as the distance from bit to drill is short and gives you a better sense of parallel and more hand force to drive the bit straight. Short Drill Bits The shorter length has saved me grief a couple of times in the last two ...

Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems of Wood & Light

Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems of Wood & Light

11-04-2010 09:21 PM by Alan | 5 comments »

I just finished reading David Mathias book Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems of Wood & Light. This is the 1st book I’ve read on Greene and Greene and really enjoyed it. Great pictures and great info and for me I felt it was great value for the cost of the book. I won’t go much into it as Todd Clippinger did a great write up. http://lumberjocks.com/toddc/blog/17691

Garrett Wade Aluminum Straight Edge  38 inch

Garrett Wade Aluminum Straight Edge 38 inch

11-04-2010 03:08 AM by barryvabeach | 7 comments »

I just received a Garrett Wade aluminum straight edge 38 inch and wanted to post a review. First, years ago Garrett Wade had lots of woodworking tools, but seem to have cut way back lately. I looked at their steel straightedges last year, but the quoted tolerances were awlful ( IIRC .0005 per inch ) The aluminum straight edge is quoted at .002 over the whole length, which is pretty good. I have a granite surface plate that allowed be to check up to about 20 inches at a time, and could n...

Nail Puller gets great reviews but I couldn't make it live up to expectations

Nail Puller gets great reviews but I couldn't make it live up to expectations

11-04-2010 01:22 AM by Elizabeth | 11 comments »

I recently got a bunch of reclaimed wood which used to be a boat frame. At either end of most pieces are lots of nails, and I mean LOTS – about 20-30 in each piece. I wanted to try to reclaim all the wood so I looked around for a way to get these nails out, and found many good reviews of the Crescent 56 Nail Puller on Amazon. Nearly all the reviews said that this was the tool to get if you have to pull lots of nails, and described its use. It seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it item ...
