A simple yet extremely helpful item

1752 days ago by Durnik150 | 10 comments »

Price $5.99 for a 10 pack via Amazon I have done a ton of reviews on Amazon and realized that the folks here at LJs will probably put more of the information to use than the average Amazon user. So, I’m transferring a bunch of these reviews over here for you folks to use. My intent isn’t to flood the site with reviews so if someone has a concern with a couple going up each day, let me know. For as long as people have been working with wood they have been frustrated by either...

A surprisingly flimsy tool from INCRA--Not recommended

A surprisingly flimsy tool from INCRA--Not recommended

1752 days ago by Durnik150 | 14 comments »

Price $36.99 via Amazon and Rockler Coming from a company like Incra I expected this item to be one top of the line rule. I was wrong. Throw in the excessive cost and in my opinion we have an item that can be passed over for something better. The measurement increments are accurate and as specific as can be. However, this rule is stamped from very flimsy material that easily bends and gets pulled out of alignment. This defeats the point of this item since it is designed to sit alont the...

The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections

The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections

1753 days ago by Durnik150 | 3 comments »

Author: George Nakashima$31.68 as of this writing at Amazon Given the price of this book I feel strongly that you should know that this is not a woodcrafting book with plans and designs. This book, written by Nakashima himself, is a great overview of a great career and a wonderful talent. The first half of the book is especially enlightening. It is a short biography of Nakashima’s early years and shows how these experiences directly influenced his works. When I first saw the book I t...

The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

1753 days ago by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Author: Sandor Nagyszalanczy$14.93 at Amazon as of this writing Ok, you’ve got to be getting pretty specific if you are looking at buying a book solely written about what is technically a huge vacuum cleaner! However, as woodworkers, we should all be concerned with doing it healthily for ourselves and anyone else in our shops. If you need this information it is a good thing that someone has compiled this book for you. Sandor does a great job of taking this topic and logically cove...

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

1753 days ago by Durnik150 | 6 comments »

I have accrued a lot of woodworking books over the last 3 years or so and avidly read as much as I can about my favorite hobby. I occasionally sell some pieces so got hold of this book. This book is available at Amazon for $15.63 as of this writing. The author is Dan Ramsay. First off, not everyone needs this book. If you enjoy woodworking for the relaxation, the craft, or as gifts, you don’t need this book. If you are actually trying to make a profit or are seriously considering ...

Makita, #1 in my book

Makita, #1 in my book

1753 days ago by JMG | 17 comments »

I was a cutman on a framing crew for about 7 years and I have used just about every major brand circular saw out there and the only thing that comes close to a magesium Makita saw is a regular Makita saw. No, I don’t work for Makita but this saw is the absolute best. At only 10 lbs, this bas boy has a powerful 15 amp motor that cuts anything in it’s path. This saw is capable of miter cuts 90 to 56 degrees with the flip of a lever. Remember those times trying to finish a job at...

Dewalt Protector Smoke Safety Glasses - Got it for $3 but It's now only $2 Grrr.

Dewalt Protector Smoke Safety Glasses - Got it for $3 but It's now only $2 Grrr.

1754 days ago by EricWrights | 4 comments »

Do they worth a buck at all? Why did I buy them? Adjectives that might best describe this glasses would be Exceptional Quality and Amazing Value. True to their name, DeWalt’s safety glasses set the standard for quality and value. I got them shipped to my home a couple days ago for $3 but now only $2 and they are more comfortable than safety glasses costing 5 times as much. That’s why I want to suggest you guys to grab one if you are needing this kind of thing. The glasses...

OK…Take this with as many grains of salt as you need. Here is a great little device that lives in your IE browser that lets you spell check any text in any window on a web page. It’s free and easy to download and install. Once installed, you just right click and pick “check spelling” out of the menu. I have installed it on all the browsers/computers I own and I use it all the time, because I am a crappy speller. This add on works seamlessly, and is free. There are man...

Craftex CT128 Lathe (vs. the Nova 1624-44)

Craftex CT128 Lathe (vs. the Nova 1624-44)

1754 days ago by Tim Dorcas | 1 comment »

I have had my Nova 1624 Lathe for a almost 6 months. It is a quality machine. However as easy as it is to do, I hate changing the belt to change speeds. Maybe it’s time to start thinking about a new, more powerful lathe. Something with variable speed, larger capacity, more horsepower, and something that will quench my lust for bigger and better. I initially thought I had a great deal on a Powermatic 3560b. It turned out to be not true. At the same time I started reexamining Busy Bee’s Craf...

Jawhorse (Sawhorse) from Rockwell, the Handy Helper

Jawhorse (Sawhorse) from Rockwell, the Handy Helper

1755 days ago by EricWrights | 16 comments »

I do 99% of my projects alone. Believe me this one is a Lifesaver! I’m always a bit skeptical of infomercials and typically believe gimmicky tools are much more trouble than they are worth. But, thinking about all the times I’ve risked cutting boards that were unstable and chasing odd shaped items across my bench with my surface grinder, I kept thinking this thing might just be worth a try so I finally decided to order one. In the closed position the unit stores easily and take...
