Timber Wolf 3/4" x 2-3 Variable Resaw Bandsaw Blade

Timber Wolf 3/4" x 2-3 Variable Resaw Bandsaw Blade

06-06-2010 02:21 PM by michaelray | 11 comments »

I was resawing some old reclaimed white oak last week when my resaw blade snapped in half. Not a pleasant sound. Luckily I was in the middle of a cut, I had just finished cutting a piece and stepped a couple of feet away to grap the next piece of wood. That’s when I heard the huge band. Even though I had never experienced this before I knew exactly what it was. The 3/4 resaw blade bought I originally bought with the saw from Grizzly had snapped at the weld. So I decided to call the f...

Anant jointer plane - an inexpensive option

Anant jointer plane - an inexpensive option

06-06-2010 02:58 AM by 8iowa | 6 comments »

For those who don’t have the time to restore an old Stanley Bailey plane, (#7’s are not exactly abundant) and are reluctant to spend the $400 + for a high quality Lie-Nielsen hand plane, the Anant, from Highland Woodworking is a viable alternative that will not bust the budget. This #7 jointer plane is on sale/clearance for around $80. At first inspection I was impressed. The tote and knob are wood and the overall finish is excellent. The plane is well machined and the frog req...

Good Sander, but not Great

Good Sander, but not Great

06-05-2010 09:45 PM by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 9 comments »

I received this Milwaukee 1/4-sheet sander this week as a prize for completing surveys online – it was the only woodworking type tool offered. This replaces a B&D 1/4-sheet Palm Sander without oscillation. First impression is that it is packed well in a bright red plastic case with latches. Kit contains the sander, dust bag, three sheets of sandpaper (120, 180, 220), manual, and a paper punch. I had read reviews of this sander on Amazon and many users had complained that it is...

Finesse Table Saw Alignment with PALS

Finesse Table Saw Alignment with PALS

06-04-2010 08:37 AM by Jack Barnhill | 12 comments »

The “Contractor Saw Precision Alignment & Locking System” (PALS™) from IN-LINE INDUSTRIES is just that, an alignment upgrade for a contractors table saw. It provides a significantly easier and more precise way of aligning the table saw blade to the miter slot than the manufacturer’s suggested method of pounding on or prying on the trunnion. PALS consists of 2 each threaded studs, flat washers, nuts, lock nuts, L-brackets with adjustment screws and lock nuts, and 1 Al...

Sun Brand Random Orbital Discs

Sun Brand Random Orbital Discs

Bought these at the wood show. We have gone through 6 boxes of them. However I didn’t count how many times a disc went flying. The velcro/hook and loop on the back doesn’t seem to stick that well. It’s not that the pad was worn out, one of the sanders we tried them on was new. For the most part they work, but you get what you pay for.

UPDATE: I end up returning it, due to manufacture’s defect . The sander pad was scratched and had dents in it. The second is way worse.More vibration than the first one, and way louder. I shouldn’t even return it in the first place. ——————————————————————————————————&#...

Can't beat them!!

These hold down cost the exorbitant price of $1.97 each!!!!! I read about other “famous” brand hold downs which break the first time you use them. These did not break after about ten tries and they in fact hold , as they are supposed to do . Excellent value.One more time, thank you Harbor Freight,my very favorite store.( just for Greg: this is a full review with pictures not from Harbor Freight ’s website but in fact taken on my new bench)The Harbor Freight guy

cordless brad nailer

cordless brad nailer

06-02-2010 05:46 PM by gardentiger | 5 comments »

Never owned a nailer before but I gotta say that this is a winner. It comes w/ a pack of nails in all sizes. I bought this particular one off of fleabay for $60 and $15 shipping. Having already bought a few of the 18v products, I did not need a battery. This would explain the somewhat low cost. The gun feels good in your hand, but has maybe a slight delay upon triggering(I adapted easily to that). After I bought the nailer I went to Amazon to read the reviews. There are some bad review...

After watching Scott Phillips on tv I got increasingly interested In this Gorilla glue. I picked up a small bottle and tryed on the first project I could. It was a box with I actualy sold so I never got to post It on here. It was made with curly maple. So a fairly standard wood.I spread A healthy amount on each miter and brushed it out. I made this box with no splines because I wanted to put this glue to the test. And boy did I.First the day after glue up I was outside brushing lacquer onto i...
