Puma Compressor

Puma Compressor

10-19-2010 06:49 PM by Raymond | 5 comments »

PUMA 5020VP I had been stressing over the purchase of a new compressor for sometime now. Do I want a vertical or horizontal? Oiled or oil less, 110 or 220, HP vs CFM or SCFM. And then there was manufacture, Harbor Freight, Craftsman, Campbell Hausfeld, Sanborn So may many things to think of. Finally I decided on the PUMA 5020VP 20 gallon Manufacture Specifications • 5 HP, 110 /220 volt air compressor • 100% durable cast iron radial pump • Belt driven, oil lubricated pump ...

Kreg bandsaw fence is a resawing dream

Kreg bandsaw fence is a resawing dream

10-19-2010 01:53 AM by 8iowa | 14 comments »

Among Kreg’s many useful accessories is their bandsaw fence. This fence system has the precision to make thin strips for veneering, edge banding, or oval boxes, as well as doing general resawing. One of the test strips shown above is 2” x 30” and is an incredibly uniform .014 thousandths thick. It’s easy to compensate for blade drift and the rip scale is also a handy feature. Kreg makes this fence for many popular bandsaws. Additional and optional accessories includ...

Benjamin's Best Bowl Gouges

Benjamin's Best Bowl Gouges

10-18-2010 10:33 PM by Lochlainn1066 | 3 comments »

I have the 3/8 and 1/2 inch gouges from Penn State. As of the current catalog (got it today), they are $15.95 and $19.95. I am a self taught turner (about 5yrs experience), so my only comparison in edge retention is from a cheapo Harbor Freight set and an older Buck Brothers set. The BB gouges hold an edge as long or longer than any of these tools, which makes them about average for HSS. I have a high carbon scraper I made myself which doesn’t hold an edge very long at all, for co...

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler (Mahogany)... Its PINK!

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler (Mahogany)... Its PINK!

10-18-2010 04:46 PM by spaids | 18 comments »

As a grain filler I have to say that I believe it will do the job. As a Mahogany grain filler I think this is some kind of a joke. Its absolutely pink. Even less natural looking than it appears in the photo. That stirring stick was a scrap of white oak and its sitting on mahogany. Why on earth would I want to fill mahogany grain with a pink filler? Because of the color, this product is a FAIL.

A must have for my shop

A must have for my shop

10-17-2010 05:14 AM by Chris | 7 comments »

This was a birthday present this year; I have only just been able to get some shop time with it. I am in the middle of a bookcase build and found this to be invaluable removing the whisper thin bit of wood needed to make the shelves fit just right or to clean up the home made moldings to complete the top of the case. Ease of Use:If you have used other planes you will find this plane to be straight forward and intuitive. Adjustments: The mouth is adjusted by loosening the locking screw...

Another of my shop favorites

Another of my shop favorites

Accuracy, reliability, & quality; I received this a a Christmas present but have not had a lot of shop time until this fall. I love using this square on my projects and when setting up my machinery. The scale is very easy to read, the head slides easily along the length of the rule and it is about the easiest to put back on when you take it off as I sometimes do. Is it expensive? Yes, but I feel it’s worth every penny.

My most used measuring device in the shop

My most used measuring device in the shop

I have used this for marking out joinery, as a depth gauge, to check squareness, the list goes on. When I’m in the shop this is always in my pocket. Some may argue about the price but I must say that short of theft or me loosing it somehow I will not have to buy another one ever.

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

10-17-2010 04:49 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

A quality Jigsaw

A quality Jigsaw

10-13-2010 11:10 AM by DoctorDan | 10 comments »

Earlier this year I purchased a Makita 4351FCT Jigsaw from Sydney Tools. Official Stats: Length of Stroke 26mm, Max. Cutting Capacity 135mm (wood) & 10mm (steel), Angle cutting -45-45. Continuous Rating Input 720W, Strokes per Minute 800-2,800, and Weight 2.4kg. I needed a tool to make some curved cuts and also rough cuts in a safer manner than using a circular saw on a non-flat slabs. A bow-saw is romantic but I’d have to build it, and I was in a hurry. A bandsaw would be great,...

Great Idea but Poor Design

Great Idea but Poor Design

10-13-2010 05:29 AM by jmichaeldesign | 12 comments »

I read reviews on this machine on multiple sites before I decided to purchase and came to the conclusion that it would serve me well. I had what I thought to be realistic expectations from this machine. I had expected a machine that would work well for boards up to 5, maybe 6 feet long. I expected it to be under powered, but usable. Many reviews spoke of the difficulty of getting the jointer tables coplanar. I planned on setting the jointer to take a 1/16” cut and leave it there all the...
