Porter-Cable 390K ROS

Porter-Cable 390K ROS

12-30-2009 09:28 PM by TheDane | 21 comments »

The Porter-Cable 390K 5” variable speed low profile Random Orbital Sander is a quality tool that delivers great performance. The low profile makes this sander much easier to control than other, taller sanders. The motor used is a constant response motor, which keeps it from bogging down regardless of the amount of pressure you put on it. The 390K is the most aggressive sander I own (I also have sanders from Milwaukee, B&D, and Craftsman) in terms of the material it will remove, y...

The King of Dado Blades

The King of Dado Blades

12-30-2009 05:03 AM by bunkie | 20 comments »

I’ve been a long-time owner of the thin-kerf Woodworker II blade. That blade changed how I worked. This year I had it sharpened by Forrest and I have been very pleased with the result. In that time, I have gone through two other stacked dado sets. The first was a 6” non-carbide set that cost about $50. It was awful. A few years ago I bought what I thought would be a good compromise between cost and functionality, a Freud 8” set. This was a big improvement. I still got tea...

SawStop From Santa

Just a short review for now…..Santa just left it a few day go. It is a great saw, so far no draw backs. Cut out kitchen cabnets this weekend (3/4” ply wood) and it preformed like a champ. Well put it to the test in the weeks to come and have a full review, but right now a solid 5 start saw.

POS Stapler

POS Stapler

12-28-2009 10:39 PM by lew | 19 comments »

About a year ago, I purchased the Stanley TRE550 Electric Stapler. I know it wasn’t the most expensive stapler on the market and I didn’t expect it to be the “end all” of electric staplers. I used it once to make the child’s rocker which probably required driving 150 1/4” staples into oak. It didn’t have great power but then, I didn’t expect it to be a muscle machine and I could live with tapping in the unset staples. Now picture this, I am ...

Scissor Table

Scissor Table

12-28-2009 12:36 AM by ND2ELK | 24 comments »

This is a H-1485 U-Line standard Scissor Table. The table is 18 X 27 and has a 330 pound weight limit. They have bigger units that hold more weight. Because my shop is so small I had to figure out a way to store my sanders but be able to get them out when needed. When I saw this scissor table, I knew it would do the trick. I built the platforms out of 2 X 12’s for the legs and 3/4” fir plywood for the tops, all trimmed in 4/4 oak. I gave the platforms two coats of Watco Oil. I can...

new saw for xmas

new saw for xmas

12-27-2009 07:19 PM by csifishguy | 11 comments »

This is what my wife got me for xmas, I guess I was a good boy this year. I have not seen a table saw built so heavy and nice as this since I was in High School woodshop in 1978. Wow and it cuts straight right out of the box. I have not used the router table yet I still need to buy a router. I would highly recomend this saw to anyone who wants a great saw at a great price.

Must have book for ANY woodworker!!!

12-27-2009 09:36 AM by Blake | 19 comments »

Tom Fidgen is one of our own. He’s been a Lumberjock for almost two years now. About three months ago he announced the completion of his book in THIS blog. I was shocked to see that he didn’t get much feedback from the blog post (only 9 comments). But I knew it was a book I was going to need in my collection. The book was released to Amazon and Boarders just in time for the holidays and I put it at the top of my Christmas list. Well let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I abs...

A better mouse trap.....

A better mouse trap.....

12-27-2009 12:18 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I received the Sorby Sandmaster from my children as a Christmas present. On the surface you might think “Why do I need a tool for sanding a bowl?” I normally use regular sandpaper (Norton or 3M) for finishing my bowls; this however turned out to be a whole different story. I found that I am not seeing the wonderful concentric circles from the sandpaper scratches and I don’t believe I’m getting much if any heat buildup. I just completed a crotch maple bowl this mornin...

I Can't Imagine It Gets Much Better Than This

I Can't Imagine It Gets Much Better Than This

12-26-2009 09:19 PM by Jimi_C | 34 comments »

I have been wanting to get a wet grinder for a while now, after watching the Woodwhisperer and MLW videos on sharpening with them (TWW used the Jet, Tommy used the Tormek). Both of those machines were way out of my budget (especially the Tormek), so I was going to resign myself to scary sharp until I found the Grizzly T10010. Unfortunately, there are extremely few reviews of it around the net, so I was unsure of whether to get it or not. Well, Grizzly is having their holiday sale right now...
