Jet 12" Jointer - Planer

01-27-2010 04:23 AM by ND2ELK | 19 comments »

I am pleasantly surprised at the construction and thoughtful design of this machine. It came in an extremely will built crate and it was perfectly adjusted right out of the crate. The 3HP, 220V motor showed no sign of being under powered when planing and jointing the 100 bd ft of quarter-shawn white oak I had to run. I really like the high fence for jointing and I had no problem putting a straight edge on 8’ and 9’ boards. I felt the 55” tables were not too short to do this ...

Milescraft push stick kit

Milescraft push stick kit

01-26-2010 05:04 AM by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the milescraft push stick kit. In episode 22 I built a push stick and that worked pretty good but I always had a hard time getting the wood to go straight against the fence. I got this push stick kit from milescraft .You get a depth gauge and a base with the push stick. The way it is designed you have a lot downward pressure which helps to control the wood much better then the one I used to use.

For their 25th anniversary in operation, book publisher TASCHEN put out 150 special editions of mostly art-based books spread across a wide array of periods and genres. There’s a book on artwork from ancient Egypt, others collecting the works of traditional favorites (Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet). There are books on modern artists (Escher, Pollock), books on beautiful destinations, and books on artistic movements (Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Dadaism). There are several books on the...

Hi fellow LJ’S I know this site is about woodworking. Once in awhile even a woodworker needs to drill a hole in metal. In my case I’m building a mobile base for my table saw. I did not want to use my wood bits so I found this set on e-bay for around 40 bucks free shipping too. They are handy to have on hand when you need a straight round hole in thin metal (table saw stand). The nice case was a bonus and is durable too. Thanks Jim K. I have other Irwin products in use and...

Sharpening System

Sharpening System

01-24-2010 06:54 AM by David Murray | 7 comments »

This is my first review so bear with me. I needed a way to sharpen my lathe chisels, I didn’t want the expence or have to wait to send them to a sharpening service. I have always been intimidated by sharpening tools so I went to a Rockler store nearby for guidance. They showed me the setup they had for sharpening there turning tools. I gained some valuable tips that day and went about researching products for this purpose. The system I settled on is PSI’s version. I purchase...

HF 36" Aluminum Bar Clamps, moderately average

HF 36" Aluminum Bar Clamps, moderately average

01-24-2010 04:40 AM by Jeison | 16 comments »

I needed some larger clamps for an upcoming project, and saw these on sale, I got a bunch of the 36” clamps on sale (reg 11.99, but sale + coupon got em for $5.95 each). I think they’re Central Forge brand (like the HF one handed clamps). They have a 32” actual clamping capacity I gave em a little bit of a workout clamping up some scraps to make a few boards, they put some solid pressure on without exploding, so thats always a plus lol! My main concern is that after ...

Turn you band saw into a scroll saw in a matter of minutes. The Carter Stablizer works with blades 1/4 ” and smaller only! You will also have to push the lower guide bearing back as far as they will go. The stabilzer wheel has a grove set so that the blade ride into it during sawing. This allow the blade to turn with no residence. The user has a very free flowing sense of control. When making tight turn the wood will absorb any heat caused by cutting leaving the blade cool to th...

For some time, I tried to find something to use when working with small amounts of glues or finishing supplies. A sign painter friend told me of these ‘Souffle Cup’. We know these as sample cups when we go to the deli and are given a small sample. The cups come in many sizes, from about 1/2 oz to about 4oz and in untreated paper or plastic. The benifit of these cups are several; First, you always have a clean container into which you can put small amounts of various glues, ...

Cheap, but works very well

Cheap, but works very well

01-22-2010 02:42 AM by funchuck | 8 comments »

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...
