I won’t go into extensive review on this tool as JC did an extended video review of the WS2000 here. It came with 80 and 220 grit slotted discs which are good for medium duty grinding. I tried using the 80 grit solid wheel with the tool guide (coming up from underneath) and although it gave an accurate angle, it was more like grinding with 40 grit. Going to 220, it couldn’t get the grind marks out of the face of the bevel. I eneded up with a polished face with circular marks in...

Quickley removes excess wood

Quickley removes excess wood

05-08-2010 04:42 AM by jerryo | 5 comments »

This plane fits in my hand like a glove and performs great. It is a wooden body plane with a thick iron which is very cambered. The iron was sharp right out of the box ready to use. The light weight of the plane has no adverse effects when planing a board. I tryed it out on a piece of wormy maple and it took thick scaloped shavings with ease planing diagonally to the grain. The planes main use is to remove large amounts of wood quickley. This will do the same job as a thickness planer, albeit...

Wood River # 6

Wood River # 6

05-08-2010 03:27 AM by jerryo | 7 comments »

I used this plane for the first time today and I was very impressed. It is a big step up from the other planes I have been using. It has good heft to it and all of the parts were machined nice and didn’t requiure any filing.The sole was dead flat and the iron was thick and the back flat. I spent 5 minutes honing the iron to an 8000 grit water stone and took fine shavings in maple, walnut and cherry. I have never used a Lie-neilsen, Clifton orVeritas but with the way this performed IR...

May, 2010this review is from the May, 2010 issue of our eMag The Ultimate Band Saw Book by our very own Donna Menke As always I am as fascinated by the author’s story as I am the book itself. Reading about Donna having the balance of a mother’s push to try new things along with a father’s guidance at doing a job well, to using art, math, and engineering skills to create the plans for the band saw boxes, well, I was hooked from the start! I knew the book was going to be...

Gunhead CnC 7x lathe.

Gunhead CnC 7x lathe.

05-06-2010 01:13 AM by Mortemer | 1 comment »

I found this cnc lathe from Gunhead. http://gunhead.com/GMW/index.html I’m a small parts builder/hobbyist, and originally I was using a Sherline, but found it to be a bit inadequate. There just wasn’t a small lathe that was tough enough to do what I needed in steel,aluminum and various woods. That is what I thought until I found the Gunhead 7x lathe. I bought it,abused it and it does the job. It’s made of steel and iron, unlike it’s aluminum rivals. Best tool I ever...

Rock Solid Jointer!

Rock Solid Jointer!

05-05-2010 05:44 PM by CryptKeeper | 10 comments »

I purchased this jointer this past weekend and I have already run a few feet of white oak without any problems. Pros:The manual was easy to follow and assembly was a snap. Plenty of power. Faced 6” white oak removing a 1/16 of inch no problem Reasonable foot print for small shop. I actually went to order the 8” Jet but after talking with my dealer I realized there was no way I could handle that unit by myself (unloading and assembly) and it would take up too much floor ...

Useful Tool at a Reasonable Price

Useful Tool at a Reasonable Price

05-05-2010 05:08 PM by Lifesaver2000 | 2 comments »

I will preface this by saying that this is my first power sander so I have nothing to compare it to directly, and although I have minimal experience with woodworking power tools, I have many years of daily use of other types power tools under my belt, and don’t have much tolerance for junk. I purchased this item about seven months ago, and up until last week had not given it much of a workout. I had sanded perhaps a total of 100 square feet of pine lumber surface with it. The resul...

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

05-05-2010 04:00 PM by deeznutz | 10 comments »

Well, the title just about says it all. I’ve been getting more in to hand tools (seems we all are) lately and the construction grade level and HD 12” combo square were just no longer straight enough. I needed an actually straight reference edge that I could trust and to be honest, was a bit skeptical of the price on these (~ $20 Shipped). After getting it, I can say I would highly recommend it. It’s the straightest tool in my little shop and gives me the confidence I nee...

Save your time and get the real thing

On the Woodcraft website, this blade is branded Pinnacle, which is Woodcraft’s house brand, but it’s made by IBC and the blade has “IBC” printed on it. Apparently IBC used to make blades for Veritas, but they’ve recently started making planes under their own brand, and Woodcraft is making a marketing push for their new Pinnacle/IBC blades. This particular blade can be used in the Veritas bevel-up jointer, jack, and smoother. I bought this blade because I was a...
