Milescraft Model 1201 BasePlate / Bushing Set, boring but good.

I had to keep my stools in storage for over year after tearing down one shop then having a big delay in starting the new shop due to health issues. When I took all my stuff back out of storage I found I was missing (i.e. I lost) some little do-dads here and there. One of them was some of the accessory pieces to my router. How we got by without the internet I do not know, but after a little Google magic I had this product shipped to me and all was right with the world.

A helical head for under $300?

A helical head for under $300?

03-28-2010 02:59 PM by mckenziedrums | 25 comments »

I’ve seen a couple people post about the Accu-Head cutter heads but I’ve yet to actually see a true review of it… Back Story: A few months ago I was getting rather frustrated with my Ryobi planer and without the funds to buy a new $500 Steel City planer (the least expensive helical planer that I know of) I decided to pull the trigger on this upgrade. The Accu-Head.com website isn’t exactly faith inspiring but knowing they make the heads for the Steel City I figured ...

Keeping the shop cleaner

Keeping the shop cleaner

03-27-2010 04:06 PM by brianl | 4 comments »

In February I finally got a table saw. It’s used and fairly old, but it was free, so I can’t complain too much. It didn’t come with a stand or with any sort of dust collection mechanism. After tuning it up and running some plywood through it I was amazed at how much dust was kicked up. I decided that I needed to get a bag or something to help. I searched around and found the Keen Product's DustCutter on Amazon. Once orderded, it was shipped very quickly and arrived q...

Abranet Sanding Mesh

Abranet Sanding Mesh

03-25-2010 09:42 PM by Darell | 5 comments »

I thought I’d try this Abranet Sanding Mesh to sand my pen blanks. Sanding has always been the hated chore of my penmaking. The Abranet Sanding Mesh has made this task much easier. I cut a 1” strip off each of 5 grits and after 15 pens I’m still using the same pieces and they don’t show any signs of wearing out yet. This stuff is much, much easier to use that the old sandpaper strips I had before. I won’t be using the old stuff any more. Wish I’d boug...

Benjamin's best carbide pen turning chisels

Benjamin's best carbide pen turning chisels

03-25-2010 09:31 PM by Darell | 8 comments »

I bought these hoping they would make turning acrylic blanks easier since they should be sharper than I can make my old Crafstman turning chisels. YES THEY ARE! Turning acrylic blanks is a breeze with these carbide chisels. They worked so well that I use them on wood blanks too. I’ve turned about 15 pens with a mix of acrylic and wood blanks including a dyed burl and a couple of laminated blanks and these chisels are great. I wish I had bought them sooner.

I bought a set of Norton Waterstones recently that I’m pretty happy with. I’ve posted a short review on my personal blog. Well worth the money in my opinion. —thanks for looking.

Basic, reliable workhorse, lacking finer features, but well worth the money.

A quick rundown of the Central Pneumatic 97526 23ga pnuematic pin nailer. For starters, this IS a Harbor Freight tool. And like most Harbor Freight stuff, it is lacking many of the more refined features of more expensive tools. But at a price of $22.99 minus a 20% coupon discount, you can walk into your shop with one of these, and a fatter wallet to boot! Air consumption was reasonable as my little 2 HP 8 gallon compressor (Central Pneumatic 95386 easily able to keep up with the air demand...

Fast, Light, Durable Framing Saw

Fast, Light, Durable Framing Saw

03-23-2010 02:05 AM by TheDane | 12 comments »

2 years ago, I built a new 2nd floor deck with ‘picture framed’ outside deck boards, which requires cutting a number of 45-degree miters. I got frustrated with my old circular saw, so off to the big box I went. I came home with a Ridgid Fuego Compact Framing Saw, and couldn’t be happier. This saw is light-weight (only weighs 8 pounds), and tough … the shoe is composite, and the guard is magnesium. The depth and bevel settings are easy and accurate, and the sho...

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...
