Senco pc1010 air compressor

Senco pc1010 air compressor

02-25-2011 09:17 AM by phtools | 10 comments »

OK, a little play on words there, but the truth is that this small compressor is great.Know what you are buying, and then rate it from that point of view. I’ve seen people here say that this Senco is too small, lacks enough reserve air so it doesn’t keep starting to recycle, and all sorts of other comments which show they have no idea of what they are talking about. You don’t buy a Prius, or a Smart Car, to use as a tow truck, and you don’t buy a small compressor like ...

Affordable Drum sanding Finally

Affordable Drum sanding Finally

02-25-2011 06:28 AM by sawblade1 | 21 comments »

Today I received this little guy in my shop :) Drum sanders are expensive especially conveyor fed ones however Grizzly’s new 10” drum sander fits the bill at 345.00 and put it into the range of most average woodworkers. To have one is a luxury but a well deserved one. The sander left the boards smooth and scratch and track mark free. I set mine up with 180 grit paper instead of the 80 grit it came with. I only give it five stars with a few exceptions. On the sander I received ...

Diamond sharpening Kit

Diamond sharpening Kit

02-24-2011 04:35 PM by dbray45 | 6 comments »

This kit came with 4 “stones” – actually 4 steel plates. The extra course is a little smoother than road surface. When I used this to flatten my 8000 grit water stone, I found that my flattening stone has been worn to a point that is no longer flat. When you get these, sharpen a piece of steel or something hard where you are not looking for that pristine mirror finish. I made a blade for a radius plane – thank Mads for this, the blade is now done – and went...

Plumb It exendable level

Plumb It exendable level

02-23-2011 12:02 PM by devann | 2 comments »

This is a review about a level I’ve been using for the last 15 years or so. The manufacture, called PlumbIt makes several models of aluminum levels that are capable of extending from about four feet to nearly twenty two feet in lentgh. The model I have, closed measures 63” and will extend to 13’ 10”. These are some pretty unique levels because the length of the level can be set anywhere within their operating range with just a sqeeze of the handle. This makes this a l...

Hitachi M12V Falls Short

Hitachi M12V Falls Short

02-23-2011 09:56 AM by pintodeluxe | 17 comments »

I was excited to add this router to my collection because of its 15 amp power rating. However, several factors led me to use other machines. Ergonomics: The machine is heavy and clunky, with no particular thought to ergonomics. A router is one tool in particular that needs to feel good in your hands. The plunge action is fair. The plastic handles are hollow, and feel like they may break off at any moment. They actually creak as you pick this tool up. The height adjustment knob is a ch...

Timberking 1220 manual sawmill

Timberking 1220 manual sawmill

02-22-2011 07:43 PM by HalDougherty | 13 comments »

Timberking has been selling sawmills for a long time and I’ve wanted my own for almost that long. It took a while to get everything together to purchase one. I went with a manual mill instead of a more expensive hydraulic model, first because of the extra expense for the more complicated sawmill. Second, I wanted to saw lumber to be used in my own products and to justify more expense, I would have had to be in a full time sawmill business. With this little mill, I can carve gunstocks...

Traditional Woodworker chisels

Traditional Woodworker chisels

02-22-2011 06:05 PM by dbray45 | 7 comments »

I purchased 6 chisels of this set. I was looking for a set of chisels that were in inches and not metric conversion like most of the chisels out there. My current set of Marples/Irwin/blue handled chisels have been good to me but are not real hard and keeping them sharp has been an issue. So, I bought the 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 5/8” chisels since these were the sizes that I will use the most. The way they are labeled is also nice and readable. These chisels, like all the r...

Used Jet JJ-6CS jointer, seems to be a bargain

Used Jet JJ-6CS jointer, seems to be a bargain

02-22-2011 05:17 AM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

I picked this up from a Craigslist ad recently for $200. SCORE!! I wanted the CSX with 1 hp motor, but this one will do. And with this being about half the going price for a newer CSX, I can put that money towards some chisels or a shoulder plane. Looks like it’s seen some action, I had to clean a bunch of surface rust from the fence and tables. A thorough cleaning did wonders, and now I need to pull the knives and get them sharpened. Everything seems to work fine, even the bearings are...
