A bit on the pricey side, but extremely well made, and solves a huge problem.

A few months ago, I added Norton white oxide wheels to my 8” grinder that I use for sharpening only to be rewarded with a grinder that tried dancing across the shop… The pitiful bushings that Norton includes with their grinder wheels, well… Norton should be ashamed of themselves for including them. These things are a waste of money for Norton to include, and a waste of shipping space. SHAME ON YOUR NORTON!!!! These things have TONS of slop in them, and allow the wheel to ...

Kerfmaker uses

Kerfmaker uses

06-15-2010 05:09 PM by tenonitis | 10 comments »

I broke down and bought one of these gadgets despite the high price since I planned to give it a lot of use. It works as advertised but I had a different application in mind than cutting half laps or kerfs. I wanted to use it for its opposite function, one not advertised, making tenons. I understand that Bridge City plans to introduce a new tool for this purpose, but I think they don’t understand that the Kerfmaker can already do this. The key is to invert your thinking and instead of u...

veritas scraper plane

veritas scraper plane

A beautifully crafted tool. Blade was sharp and did a great job on an end grain cutting board i’ve been trying to smooth. Sharpening a tool like this has quite a learning curve. Corners of the blade need to be rounded. The plane is much larger than it appears in pictures. It’s gonna be a fun one.

Keeps the Shop Clean

Keeps the Shop Clean

I picked up this Delta 50-760 off of eBay a couple of weeks ago. I lucked out the guy i bought this from had bought it a few months back and changed jobs and was moving and sold his whole shop.It had been used for about 1/2 hr. The collector had about an inch of dust in the bag. Ok so I have this hooked up to my contractors saw from the bottom with a 4 inch she that is 20ft long. The back of the saw is not sealed up and the suction from this thing captures almost all the dust. I have cut M...

Ridgid MS1290LZA & MS-UV Mobile base

Ridgid MS1290LZA & MS-UV Mobile base

06-12-2010 11:56 PM by lilredweldingrod | 15 comments »

I’ve had my Ridgid miter saw for two years now. At first I found it required more room in my shop than I had. After working around the large footprint, I bought the MS-UV mobile cart. I feel that I have the perfect combination now. The saw with a Freud D1296N blade is a dream to work with. And now that I have added the mobile base, my problem with the footprint is a thing of the past. Being in a wheelchair makes moving most shop equipment a dreaded chore. But the large wheels and the b...

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

06-12-2010 09:51 AM by live4ever | 5 comments »

I’ve never been able to restore a cheap or older block plane to complete satisfaction. Not knowing whether it was me or whether I was working with inferior quality, I became frustrated and resigned myself to never experiencing the titillating joy of transparent shavings and effortless planing. I began considering simply purchasing a high-quality block plane, either a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, because I had wasted enough time trying to restore junk and a properly tuned block plane is t...

A Stellar Clean Cutting Blade from CMT

A Stellar Clean Cutting Blade from CMT

06-11-2010 11:38 AM by knotscott | 13 comments »

After being disappointed with the performance of not one, but two different 40 tooth CMT 213.040.10 general purpose blades within the past year, I was beginning to doubt CMT’s quality commitment, but the CMT Orange 210.080.10 has restored my faith. I’ve tried several other CMT products with excellent results, so I’m not surprised by the stellar showing of their premium 80 tooth Hi-ATB blade. The CMT 210.080.10 is a full kerf 80T Hi-ATB fine cutoff blade with a steep 40° ...

I expect good customer service when I am trying to buy something from a company but this week I dealt with two companies that went above and beyond anything I could ask for.I was looking for a particular router bit and couldn’t find it locally and if they ordered it they told me to expect up to a two week wait. I found the bit I was looking for on Whiteside’s website but a notation in their catalog said it was not for the use I intended. I called Whiteside to find out why and was ...

An Aftermarket Retrofit Riving Knife Does Exist...

An Aftermarket Retrofit Riving Knife Does Exist...

06-09-2010 10:01 PM by knotscott | 26 comments »

The Bolt On Ripping Knife (BORK) from Bob Ross of Walnutacre Woodworking is a retrofit riving knife that fits several traditional saws that were not originally designed for a riving knife. The BORK attaches to the arbor swing arm, and rises, lowers, and tilts in unison with the blade much like a true stock riving knife does. I’ve had a BORK on my Shop Fox W1677 since August of 2008, and have been very happy with it. It’s available in full kerf or thin kerf thicknesses, and will ...

A picture is worth two hudred fifty words

06-09-2010 11:04 AM by Kelly | 13 comments »

I almost ordered some of these today, but didn’t when I saw they wanted to charge thirteen bucks for shipping two of them. Later, going through my jig supplies, there they were. These things are small. Very small. So small, they wouldn’t break the one ounce mailing barrier. Still, it would have cost thirteen dollars to ship them. Did I mention that yet? To be fair, they are very handy critters to have around, since they do their assigned task well, which is to fit in T tracks...
