Ear protection

Well, after dropping and breaking my cheap Lowes earmuffs, I did a lot of online research and reading reviews and comparing specs, I ended up with these John Deere earmuffs. They are adjustable and extremely comfortable and light and at 27dB do a great job of blocking off most of the harmful loud noise in the shop ( as in my dang pancake compressor) or yard tools.

Now I really do have 10 Inches...

Now I really do have 10 Inches...

03-01-2010 05:56 PM by Kerry Drake | 27 comments »

Last August I purchased a Jet 10” Combination Jointer/Planer, and last weekend I finally got to give it a real workout. I had 3 pieces of 6/4 Cherry all 10’ long ranging in width from about 5” up to nearly 9”. I needed to mill them all down to the exact same thickness so I could glue them up and make one massive cherry counter top 9’ 3” long and 17” deep. Me and my Jet got to spend 5 hours of quality time with each other. The good: 1 – T...

Can't Believe I Didn't Buy It Sooner

Can't Believe I Didn't Buy It Sooner

I had considered buying the Ezee-Feed Infeed Table for quite sometime. I have noticed that I’m just not as stong as I used to be. Trying to hold a sheet of plywood up and keep it against the fence was getting to be a struggle. I was getting burn marks, uneven cuts, felt it was really hard on my blades and it was not safe. I needed something that was easy to put on and take off my saw. The Ezee-Feed Table has proven to be the answer. With the folding legs, it is easy to store when not...

Happy about this Purchase!

Happy about this Purchase!

03-01-2010 01:28 AM by cFurnitureGuy | 39 comments »

I purchased the Rikon 14’ Ultimate Bandsaw during the Woodcraft 2 day sale this past weekend. So far i couldnt be happier with this purchase! Before i bought this saw all i had was a small Craftsman bench top BS from the 80’s so this is a night and day comparison…. although i have used several other BSs in the past.This review is just an overview of my experience… i agree with all the pros and stats on the other reviews so i wont recap them again! Purchase: Like i...

GMC ROS, seems pretty goood from my limited experience

GMC ROS, seems pretty goood from my limited experience

02-28-2010 04:54 PM by Andrew | 2 comments »

This was on sale at rockler I think in November, Got it for $20 plus tax. I have had my fair share of problems with cheap power tools, but for $20 you probably cant go wrong as long as your expectations are realistic.I have never used a Random Orbit Sander before so my experience is limited, but it does a good job, it removes material quickly, and leaves a nice surface ( swirl free) It does bog down ( still oscillates, but doesn’t rotate) with too much pressure, but I suspect they all...

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

02-28-2010 04:33 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

This is my first good plane, in fact it cost more than my 3 other planes all together. I needed a plane that could get into corners, and trim along edges. I wanted to get the 92 it had a 3/4” width as opposed to the 93 with a 1” width, but the 92 was on back order until mid april. My needs are my needs so here goes the 93. It took only a couple of minutes to flatten the back of the iron and hone the edge. The bottom seems pretty flat. After a couple minutes of set up and ad...

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site table saw

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site table saw

02-28-2010 03:18 AM by LafayetteJack | 9 comments »

Review of the PorterCable PCB220 Job site saw. I am a relative newcomer to woodworking and the only comparison I have for this saw is my old Delta Shopmaster TS200. So as they say…your mileage may vary. Specs from the Lowes website (I have not been able to find this saw on the PorterCable site):UL Safety Listing No CSA Safety Listing Yes ETL Safety Listing No Blade Size (Inches) 10.0 Arbor Size (Inches) 0.625 Drive Motor System Direct Amps 15.0 Bevel Capacity (Degrees) 45.0 Aluminum...

Small sander that does a big job

Small sander that does a big job

02-27-2010 09:52 PM by Sawdust4Blood | 8 comments »

I bought one of these because I was looking for a detail sander that could get me into the corners of furniture projects. But since I make sawdust almost every weekend, I was looking for something that was going to last. I had looked around at a lot of other detail sanders and they all struck me as cheap flimsy things designed to be used on one or two projects then forgotten or thrown away. I also considered a couple of the multi-function tools for their utility but sanding was more important...

New Sander - Huge Help

New Sander - Huge Help

02-27-2010 09:37 PM by Troy | 14 comments »

The sander I am reviewing is the new oscillating version, 22-44 Plus ODS. I was able to save a few hundred ordering and shipping through a freight forwarder myself, instead of using a local retailer. I try to help local businesses when I can, but when they don’t want to work with me, it’s difficult. It always irks me when a retailer tells me they don’t have the item in stock, (either out or don’t stock them in general), but that “they can order it for me.̶...

Thomas J MacDonalds 2nd Video, Shaker Inspired Step Stool

Thomas J MacDonalds 2nd Video, Shaker Inspired Step Stool

02-25-2010 11:47 PM by Karson | 10 comments »

Thomas MacDonald has created his second Video. It’s available on his web site for $40.00 (Price change $30.00) and a package deal with DVD #1. This stool is Shaker inspired and it’s presented in the typically Tommy style. He’s recording this in real time and because he’s working with wood, there are no do-overs. He’s showing you how to hand cut dovetails and he tells you not to make a mistake and then he does it and says that’s not what you are suppose t...
