Multi tool Multi Problems

05-17-2011 03:42 AM by Chipy | 15 comments »

I bought this tool to cut jams while installing some hardwood floors.Not much good to say about this tool.For one thing the blade will not stay tight I had to re tighten it more times than i can count.It is under powered, won’t even continue cutting through soft pine casings.The exhaust is in a ridiculous place it is so close to the grip that you burn your hand while starving the motor of cooling! $90 HA! took it back the same day no second thoughts about this one!!!!! If I could put ...

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

05-16-2011 01:20 AM by TechRedneck | 6 comments »

Being a weekend woodworker (some evenings too) my time is important. Most of the joinery I’ve done is the basic stuff.. Biscuits, dadoes, M&T and pocket hole. I wanted a system to make some nice jewelry boxes for my grandchildren and step up my work a notch without spending a ton of money on a bunch of dovetail jigs, and making a bunch of box joint jigs that take up room in the shop. The Incra system interested me. I watched the videos and thought the concept was interesting fr...

Grizzly G0690 vs. G0715P

Grizzly G0690 vs. G0715P

05-15-2011 11:24 PM by Alpiner | 17 comments »

If you had read my previous review of Grizzly’s G0715P hybrid saw that I received week before last, you know that I had a serious unsafe issue with it, and I received permission from Grizzly to return it. It’s been reboxed, and will be picked up by UPS freight Tuesday. I was leery of getting the same saw again, so I went ahead and ordered a new G0690 cabinet saw, which is what I was considering ordering in the first place. I just wasn’t sure if the $500 price difference w...

A Stanley Sweetheart surprise!!

A Stanley Sweetheart surprise!!

05-15-2011 10:58 PM by poopiekat | 12 comments »

Here on the prairies, good lumber and tools can be hard to get your hands on. At a local flea market today, I nabbed an absolutely beautiful, brand new Stanley Sweetheart #4 plane! Still in the box, it still had its wax paper wrapping and plastic bag. Wow! This #4 has a huge, 1/8” thick blade, and an adjustable mouth! And the sweetheart logo is the cherry on top of this great find. Incredibly, this plane was mine for $90, and in Canada the usual list price on these babies is $189-...

Wood River V3 low angle block plane.

Wood River V3 low angle block plane.

05-15-2011 05:40 PM by Florida_Jim | 4 comments »

Last Saturday I was at my local Woodcraft store. They had a 10% store wide discount. Well I was looking at their new wood River block planes. So for $80.99 plus tax, I bought the low angle version.It is very well made. The design is based on the Stanley #65. The bed is nicely machined so the plane iron fits very well. The plane iron is .118” thick. This gives a very nice finish. The iron on my old Stanley 60 ½ is 0nly .079” The iron only needed a bit of polishing, and a touch up with a ...

Not only for wood and leather.

Not only for wood and leather.

05-30-2011 07:50 AM by Dedvw | 2 comments »

I found a can of this at a local salvage shop near my house and decided to give it a try. It says it contains Turpentine, vegetable, and wax preservative that help restore wood, leather and metal. I used some on a pine foot stool I made and wow, it looked like I gave it a fresh coat of finish. I decided to see what it could do for my band saw and jointer table to prevent rust and I think it did even a better job on that. It dries to a thin but hard film that helps protect wood as it claims, b...

A plane by any other name…

A plane by any other name…

05-15-2011 12:12 AM by Paul Sellers | 12 comments »

I’ve used the best of all planes from Scottish Spiers, Norris and Edward Preston to the old and not so old Marples, Stanleys and Records. Being raised with the conventional Bedrock’s and Bailey’s, I am most familiar with the styles and the idiosyncrasies surrounding them and I must say they’re my strong favourites in the smoothing plane category of the bench plane range. A new plane on the block comes under the unusual name of ‘Juuma’. It’s made in China and bears all of the signature marks o...

I always liked wood magazine and the layout, projects, and articles. I just bought the new special interest “outdoor projects” copy with a garden bench on the front. Long story short the bench was not in there…. Disappointed I emailed their editor and got a response in about 15 min with an apology for the mistake and a free download of the plans for the bench. Great customer service and I think it made my decision to subscribe.FMG

Ashley Iles Mk 2 Bevel Edged Cabinetmakers Chisels

Ashley Iles Mk 2 Bevel Edged Cabinetmakers Chisels I have for as long as I can remember wished for a quality set of chisels and few years ago I took the decision to spend the money on a set of Bahco 434, and boy did I regret this after… Why? Because what I was looking for was a set of cabinetmaker chisels and not the perfect on site construction chisel that also would be used for opening beer and cans of paint! Say what! This is actually meant as a compliment bec...

Crescent Brand Slide Adjustable Wrench

Crescent Brand Slide Adjustable Wrench

05-12-2011 07:06 AM by David Grimes | 3 comments »

Yes, we are wood workers. But, we all have tools to assemble and maintain our woodworking tools. I came across this recently and (being a tool and gizmo junky) decided to give it a try. It works great at doing what it is supposed to do, but the speed is the real plus since you place it over the nut (or whatever) and just immediately have a perfect fit. It’s heavy and name brand, so i expect i’ll have it as long as I can keep track of it. I gave it four stars because I wish ...
