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...

Great little stand for my Bandsaw Station

Great little stand for my Bandsaw Station

02-22-2011 03:16 AM by patcollins | 3 comments »

I wanted a support for my benchtop bandsaw and have been mulling the idea of making one until I came across this. For $28 it was a great deal from Harbor Freight. It is adjustable height but is a bit short for me for most things (Im 6’4”), b ut for my bandsaw I thought it would be perfect. It came with middle and bottom shelving material that was very flimsy hardboard, I’m talking so thin the box was stronger. I made new shelves out of some 3/4” particle board. ...

A real help

A real help

02-21-2011 05:07 AM by ChunkyC | 17 comments »

I purchsed the I-Socket from Rockler for $29.99 + Free shipping. The instructions and web site say that it’s for a vacuums and dust collectors. I personally wouldn’t use it on my 2 HP Dust Collector. It just doesn’t look like it’s made well enough to handle that much inrush current. I purchased the I-Socket for one thing, using with my compound sliding miter saw. It works just as advertised. When you squeeze the trigger on the miter saw, the vac starts right ...

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

02-21-2011 03:49 AM by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.

8” Bionic Wrench

8” Bionic Wrench

02-20-2011 03:39 PM by christopheralan | 3 comments »

This is the 8” Bionic Wrench by Logger Head Tools. It is one of the coolest tools I own. Thanks to innovative design and engineering, it automatically adjusts to any size hex-head fastener from 7/16 inch to ¾ inch and from 11mm to 20mm. This had Super Hero Belt status immediately. Being a carpenter and woodworker, I don’t normally turn wrenches, except to change blades and occasionally to secure lag bolts and screws. It is ideal for me in those situations where I normally have enough cle...

Another Ridgid DP1550 Review

Another Ridgid DP1550 Review

02-19-2011 06:59 AM by RandyMorter | 23 comments »

I ordered a Ridgid DB1550 Drill press from Amazon on 2/10/2011 and received it today, 2/18/2011. I paid the $332.22 amount which includes shipping. It was shipped by ABF freight. Home Depot had them on back order. They charge less but I would have had to pay $324 when taxes were added in at HD so it was only $8 more from Amazon. I got this DP because of 1) all of the good reviews it gets; 2) good luck with other Ridgid gear (especially my jointer and planer); 3) I’d seen them befo...

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

02-18-2011 04:23 PM by Steve2 | 7 comments »

Industry and trade shows include steel rolling and other racks for drying painted (sprayed) panels, cabinet doors, or simply flat works products. Typical steel rolling racks cost $200 and upward, require appreciable floor space, particularly if used infrequently making them unsuitable for the hobbyists. The August IWF industry show in Atlanta unveiled a new product that solved this need for the small user. See Erecta-rack.com I have no connection to or vested interest in this company, t...

The best resource for tree biology / history

The best resource for tree biology / history

02-17-2011 04:49 AM by EPJartisan | 2 comments »

“The Tree: a natural history of what trees are, how they live, and why they matter” HANDS DOWN the best resource for anyone who wants to learn the full biology of the “tree” part of the plant kingdom. Also includes shrubs, vines, bananas (because they aren’t really trees… it’s in the book) It will give you the full low down on the cell structure and the evolution of those cells from ancient Ginkgo fern trees to complex new species of Angiosperm. Includes why the tre...
