Okay These aren’t cheap but they are a HUGE improvement of the F style Bar clamps I’ve always used. They make glueing up table tops, and cabinets a dream. Large wooden handles give plenty of gripping power.I love em and plan to get more….once my wallet recovers from my Initial bunch.

Miter gauge and blade purchase

Miter gauge and blade purchase

10-07-2010 12:05 PM by Ken90712 | 8 comments »

Sunday after a long workweek was over, with a little too much overtime for my taste I was reading Rockler sales paper. I had Monday off and Blondie was working, OH no, so off to Rockler I go. I received a coupon in the mail for 50 % of a 2nd item after purchasing a regular priced item of equal or less value. So I put in the reading glass’s ( New for me never had to before, LOL ) to read their fine print of all the things that were excluded from this coupon. I was happy to read Forres...

Forrest Woodworker II saw blade

Forrest Woodworker II saw blade

10-07-2010 11:43 AM by Ken90712 | 17 comments »

I have been looking at this blade for some time. I have 6-7 decent blades for 24 teeth to 60 tooth but they all seem to gum up while cutting various 8/4 lumber. I cut alot of Purple Heart, Walnut, Maple, Cherry and Paduuk for cutting boards. I’m constantly cleaning the blades. I even spray them with dry Teflon to boot but the gum up quickly.

Great Sliding Compound Miter Saw for Woodworkers on a Budget

Great Sliding Compound Miter Saw for Woodworkers on a Budget

10-06-2010 08:00 PM by PocketHole69 | 10 comments »

I’ve had an old Ryobi $99 Home Depot special miter saw for years and was looking to upgrade to a sliding model for wider cut capacity. I really wanted a laser too, because lasers are awesome. I did a lot of searching on Amazon and at the usual woodworking sites and pretty much resigned myself to spending $400-500 for a decent sliding compound miter saw from Milwaukee or Dewalt and started saving money. That was until I walked through the tool section at Lowes and noticed their ne...

Ease of use

Ease of use

I have been needing another method of sharpening other than by hand. I have been using a 3 and 6 inch grinder for shaping, and Arkansas stone’s for fine tuning. For plane blades, a large piece of glass with assorted grits of wet or dry sandpaper. I have made some jigs for the grinders to get somewhat of a hollow bevel started. And have had some reasonable success with the bevel. As long as I was not dealing with 2 inches or larger. But the stones and my inconsistency of sharpening have ...

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

10-01-2010 07:55 PM by Dedvw | 9 comments »

Purchased this drill just over a week ago for a really good price ($88 brand new). Box came with the drill, 2 batteries, flashlight, charger and carrying case. The owners manual was not in the box but this was not really an issue, Ridgid makes it very easy to find the PDF manual on their website. The tool itself appears very well made with a good blend of plastic and metal parts. The weight of the Drill is pretty good (a little lighter then my Makita 14.4V) but is a bit top heavy making it...

First one was a dud, second one is fine.

Mind you, pnuematic nailers are honestly very simple tools as far as air tools go. The driver is simply a piston, with a simple connecting rod sort of arrangment. You would think that if a company is going to build a product that has a piston, a connecting rod, and motion, that there would be a wrist pin right? Well not in my first one. Now #2 is working great. It leaks a tiny bit of air, but that is my fault. I took the thing apart to inspect it and managed to tear one of the paper gaskets. ...

Not exactly a fine woodworking tool, but it sure does drive nails!

I have now owned mine for about 6 months, and put it through plenty of hard paces. The good, the bad, and the ugly of it… The good…Purchase price $49.99 (had a GREAT coupon)...Drives a good variety of nail sizes.Safety works very well.Reasonable magazine capacity. The bad…Uses a LOT of air. My little HF compressor cycles a LOT when I use this thing.Shortest nails this will shoot 2-3/16”, would like to shoot 2” nails with it.Limited to 28 degree nails.Lack o...

Makita 2703 Portable

Makita 2703 Portable

09-29-2010 06:51 PM by Hermando | 11 comments »

I just wanted to share one of the Makita portable table saws I own and give a review from what I think is a quality table saw and functional with the right setup. I have been reviewing a wide variety of table saws in the past so I could spend more time wood working and not working. This particular table saw is the Makita 2703, which I purchased from Craigslist for $40 and had the Makita service do a complete overhaul of power cord, power switch, bearings and brushes. This saw was pretty r...
