Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

10-26-2009 03:59 AM by drfixit | 9 comments »

This is going to be my first review here at LJs and hope some one finds it of use. I normally use the cheap little shop brushes for spreading glue in joints and on tenons and such. I went by the local WoodCraft the other day to pick some up and came across these polypropylene glue spreaders. There is 6 in a pack and at $3.50 I figured it would be worth a shot. Love em! I use a lot of Tight Bond glue, after using one the other night while glueing up a clock case, I simply let it dry over n...

You get what you pay for?....Maybe less

You get what you pay for?....Maybe less

10-25-2009 09:12 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 14 comments »

I purchased these early this year. My decision was based on somewhat good reviews and mostly price. Based on the amount of usage that the dado set would see, I didn’t want to spend 200 on the Freud SD508 set which is what I had in mind in the first place.I also skipped over the Oshlun SDS-0842 set due to noticeable bat ears claims and reviews.So today I had a chance to put this set to test after making a zero clearance insert for this set. Well, I’ll make it short. Clean bottom and no bat ear...

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

10-24-2009 06:14 AM by Daniel Dugan | 3 comments »

I was considering building/installing 2×4 sandwiched in 1×4 shelving for wood storage (featured in FWW #181) when I encountered this system on Lee Valley website. Time is precious to me and I would rather build furniture than wood racks, so I decided I would give this a try. I ordered the 4’ standards, fast mount brackets and the connectors as well as 10” and 14” shelf brackets. I installed three eight foot sections tonight in about an hour. The fast mount brack...

Tenryu Gold Medal Dado Not Exactly What I Had Hoped For.

Tenryu Gold Medal Dado Not Exactly What I Had Hoped For.

10-20-2009 05:48 PM by Russ Anderson | 15 comments »

This is a brief review of the Tenryu GMD. First Impression: The blades look of extremely high quality with thick bodies. Box: I personally don’t like the wood box because you have to lift out all of the chippers in order to get to the outer blades. Cut Quality: The side blades are excellent in MDF, and Plywood core veneers, as well as melamine. The bottom of the dado is the flattest, smoothest that I have seen. I’ve owned two previous dado sets, one from Systi-Matic, and ...

worth it.

worth it.

my dust deputy works great too. the shopvac is clean. i strapped my dd to the shopvac with a rachet strap. i had to cut 2 hourglass-shaped spacers (out of 2×4) to get a good and even ‘lock’ between the cylindrical bucket and the cylindrical shopvac. (trace the bottom of the 5 gal bucket for the bottom spacer, and the top of the bucket for the top spacer). i mostly just pick it up to move it, but it also rolls/drags ok.i also suck a small amount of water straight into the...

Glue Line Rip !

Glue Line Rip !

10-20-2009 02:16 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 30 comments »

When Freud claims that this blade will give you flawless rips and glue joints, they are not boasting.I purchased this blade few months back but never got around using it until this week when I got tired cleaning the mess my jointer was making.Long story short, this put my jointer to shame. The cut is so smooth; you may have to scuff it up a bit before gluing.Well, I’m not the least bit surprised, Freud makes some of the longest lasting and sharpest router bits and saw blades around. it&...

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event - Indy

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event - Indy

10-19-2009 02:55 AM by Walnut_Weasel | 6 comments »

This Saturday (10/17/09) I attended the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Indianapolis at the Herron School of Art. I think it is worth mentioning right off the bat is that I am extremely new to woodworking and that alone may bias my opinions stated below. I had two main reason for attending this event: 1) Learn as much as possible about everything available, and 2) Get my hands on some Lie-Nielsen equipment to see what it is like to use high quality tools. Admission to the event was free! I...

Cutting Mat

Cutting Mat

10-17-2009 10:14 PM by dustyal | 5 comments »

I originally bought this mat for my mother-in-law who used it for her sewing. My wife also used one for her picture mat cutting. They work well with the rotary cutters and mat cutter. I find it extremely useful for woodworking when laying out projects, doing dry fits and glue ups, etc. I would think it might come in handy for veneer work and other projects where you might want a larger protected surface that won’t mar the finished product. It is hard enough to stay flat and smoot...

Great... but...

Great... but...

10-16-2009 08:41 PM by greggr | 12 comments »

I bought a pair of these a few months ago after checking with my supervisor for approval. They work great, especially the Mp3 feature. With an el-cheapo generic Mp3 they will play for about 10 hours until the Mp3 battery needs a recharge. The sound is excellent and blocks out most of the surrounding noise. Herein lies the “but”. Unfortunately my employer has reversed on approval after several other people started using the same unit. Their reasoning (and I guess I agree r...
