Evapo-Rust to the rescue

Evapo-Rust to the rescue

04-06-2010 09:13 PM by hjt | 14 comments »

This is my first use of this product and am impressed The tools were 12 years + and came from my father’s house in upstate NY. Due to his age and declining health, he had not used them for years by the time I picked them up and brought them to Florida (rust capital of the world – I believe.) Rust Removal – before photos: Evapo-Rust to the rescue here are the after photos. I learned about Evapo-Rust from a forum devoted to Radial Arm Saws. I bought it at Har...

Deulen Planer Sharpener

Deulen Planer Sharpener

Due to the length of planer knives you need to purchase two of the above knife holders to properly hold and sharpen planer knives. I have only used them once and they worked very well and quickly put a very sharp edge on my knives. I purchased the knife holders on EBay. The item number is 250557952917. Dan Deulen is the inventor/manufacturer of the holders and he can be contacted at telephone number 360-601-1744 or at 11311 NE Stutz Road, Vancouver, WA 98685. It is my opinion that he is...

Sloppy plunge

Sloppy plunge

04-05-2010 09:51 PM by mcase | 28 comments »

Dear Jocks, I recently Bought the 893pk router package from Porter-Cable. The plunge base had so much slop in the slide that it was a joke. I sent the following inquiry to Porter-Cable and was automatically redirected to the stock answer page. In the common interest I wish to share the following. To Porter Cable: I recently purchased the 893pk router package. I discovered that the 8931 plunge base has 1/32” of slop in the bushing on the secondary guide rod. I went back to the store a...

Jorgensen 36 in parallel bar clamp

Jorgensen 36 in parallel bar clamp

04-05-2010 05:09 PM by kosta | 15 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the jorgensen 36 in parallel bar clamp. I got two of these clamps about 4 weeks ago. There are a lot of different brands that sell parallel bar clamps and I use jet and jorgensen parallel bar clamps. To move the head of the clamp back you lift up the handle and pull back. The handle is wood and is very easy to grip. These clamps have a lot of pressure so you never have to worry about not having enough clamping pressure when you are gluing up a...

Digital Copies of Wood Magazine

Digital Copies of Wood Magazine

04-04-2010 04:36 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

I bought the Wood Magazine digital archives, which contains all issued from 1 to 195. Years 1984 to Dec/Jan 2009/2010. It’s very easy to use. It’s made to be run from the DVD, but in doing so it has a speed problem. DVD drives are not as fast as hard drives. I copied it to my hard drive making a folder called “Wood Magazine” and copied all of the data from the DVD to this folder. It’s around 7 GTB of data and it ran fine. No problems. So that improved the s...

Best kept cleaning secret

Best kept cleaning secret

04-04-2010 02:01 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 24 comments »

Stop wasting your money on those so-called cleaners that require you to mortgage your tools just to get few ounces of water and soap in a fancy package. EASY-OFF has been around a long time with a proven track record.It comes in several different skin removing flavors and I guarantee you’ll be amazed at the results.It’ll make your saw blades; router bits, forstner bits and anything that can’t be recognized anymore look like it’s brand new.Oh yeah, make sure you wear gloves.

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site Saw PCB220TS

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site Saw PCB220TS

04-03-2010 07:55 AM by bobdobbs | 20 comments »

Thanks to Laffayette Jack, for having one of the only reviews anywhere on this saw. I was in the situation of having my old craftsman portable die mid-project. I was never very happy with that saw anyway, so I started looking at craigslist for real saws and just stopped by Lowes to see what they had for prices. Being surprised to see the Porter Cable saws (both PCB220TS $299 and PCB270TS $599) as well as all of the other Porter Cable tools that I’ve never seen (Planers, Jointers, S...

They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

04-01-2010 04:31 PM by Eric_S | 7 comments »

So I just got the WS3000 this weekend and had a chance to play around with it. This thing is amazing, I have been rehoning all my chisels and plane irons less than 2” in assembly line fashion (all backs at 120 grit, then bevels, then all backs at 400 grit, then bevels, and so on). This thing is amazing, super easy to use, and very quick compared to the manual Scary Sharp method. Now onto the wide blade attachment that I purchased for my 2 3/8” plane iron at $69.99 The angl...
