“This is awesome,” said host John Palanca, on an episode of DIY Network’s “Under Construction.” “It’s a great concept, great idea that is well thought out by a carpenter. Half the job on a jobsite is setting up and this is already set up for you.”

Not a bad little mini-driver but would look for the TEK4 version

Not a bad little mini-driver but would look for the TEK4 version

01-19-2010 05:00 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

I have been looking for a mini-driver that I could put in my pocket for small tasks around the shop and assembly work. I have the Ridgid 18v cordless for the larger tasks but it is sometimes a pain in the hip (literally) to have on my holster. Since I pre-drill all my holes before adding fasteners, I just needed a light duty driver for screws. This would give me the flexibility of having a drill already prepped with a bit for drilling and another set for driving. I didn’t want to invest...

Adapter that will transform your HF lathe

Adapter that will transform your HF lathe

01-19-2010 05:55 AM by David Craig | 4 comments »

A friend of mine gave me a Harbor Freight last year to help support my interest in turning. It isn’t a bad beginner lathe and I am definitely not one to complain about such a thoughtful gift, but I did find the mounting and remounting of turned pieces on a faceplate frustrating over time. The lathe has a proprietary 3/4 inch x 10tpi spindle which makes purchasing 3rd party vendor chucks nearly impossible. I recently discovered, though, that Penn State Industries manufactures adapters fo...

Infiniter Laser guide

Infiniter Laser guide

01-19-2010 02:34 AM by cliffton | 5 comments »

This is an aftermarket laser guide that replaces the outer washer on your arbor. The packaging says that it will fit an arbor that is 7/16×5/8. the package says that it will not fit these 12” miter saws, Ridgid, pro-tech, makita ls1221, dewalt dw705s produced before 2005. It will not fit these circle saws: Porter cable quick-change , all worm drives and skil. I just put this on my GMC 10 inch sliding compound miter and i have to say it works pretty good. the laser is turned ...

IGAGING digital angle cube

IGAGING digital angle cube

01-19-2010 02:11 AM by cliffton | 8 comments »

I bought this from Rockler about a week ago, it was on sale for 10$ cheaper than the wixey, so i figured why not, if it sucks i can return it. So far I have to say this thing rocks.Pros:-has really strong magnets in it, wont slip at all off of a highly polished blade.-cheaper than wixey-has hold button for odd position angles-numbers auto flip when you turn it upside down to make it easier to read-takes a 9v battery-has magnets on 3 sides ( i dont know if the wixey does)-has machined metal b...

Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

I received a 1/4 and 3/8” of these chisels for Christmas and it is a revelation on mortising. These are fantastic additions to my tool chest and I may just walk away from power mortising for good because of them. Read my full review of features on my blog here.

Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

01-18-2010 06:37 PM by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

Disappointment with JET DC-650A 1 Horsepower Dust Collector

Disappointment with JET DC-650A 1 Horsepower Dust Collector

01-18-2010 12:47 AM by Don Newton | 20 comments »

Fellow Jocks, After 25 years of injesting sawdust, a very foolish thing to do, a few months ago I took the plunge and purchased a Jet Dust Collector and AFS-400 Air Filtration System. The Air Filtration System works as it should, but in my opinion the Dust Collector has some design flaws that make me sorry I purchased it. The dust collector is small but should be adequate for my needs. My workshop is in my basement so space is critical and portability is desirable. The Jet DC-650A seeme...

Bent Laminate Walnut Rocker

Bent Laminate Walnut Rocker

01-17-2010 01:46 AM by Andy Brownell | 5 comments »

I recently saw some photos of a rocking chair designed and built by Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture.Jeff has been building and designing furniture for clients for about 25 years in Chicago. Jeff is also the reason I fell in love with designing and building fine furniture. I took a number of classes and worked as a part time apprentice with him for about 7 years. This walnut rocker is truly a masterpiece of his career in my mind. This rocker incorporates both solid and a sign...
