Bench Cookies are Sweet!

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

03-09-2010 07:19 AM by Jay Neale III | 7 comments »

This will be short and to the point. I bought a set of four Bench Cookies from the Rockler in Arlington, Texas, this past Saturday. That evening I used them to support my new router table top clamped to my old router table top so I could use the old top as a template to rout out the opening for the plate. I hop that made sense. Anyway, the Bench Cookies worked GREAT! I expected them to work, but I was still surprised at how well they held my work piece in place for the entire operation. N...

Grand Slam Tools Home Run Pack

Grand Slam Tools Home Run Pack

03-09-2010 04:42 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on Tommy Mcdonalds grand slam tools. I got the home run pack in may 2009. The home run pack includes a bench bat, 2 parring blocks, and a marking gauge. I dont use the parring blocks a lot but I use the marking gauge and the bench bat a lot. The bench bat, parring blocks, and the marking gauge are all made out of maple and the marking gauge has a hock blade. If you didn’t already know this Tommy McDonald just announced that he got a t.v deal...

THe Festool RAS 115 is a Wood Sculptor's Dream

THe Festool RAS 115 is a Wood Sculptor's Dream

03-08-2010 06:49 PM by Charles Brock | 7 comments »

Several years ago at the Festool IWF booth, I told one of the reps what type of work I do and he said you got to try the “Termite Tool!” Full of woodworker’s cynicism , I thought, Yeah! Just another grinder. I didn’t try it, so I continued to shape my rocking chair seats using a grinder with a carbide wheel attachment while turning my shop’s air into a dusty haze. My only alternative was to go outside on a windy day and let my neighbor deal with the dust. As usua...

What a difference !

What a difference !

03-08-2010 02:51 AM by b2rtch | 19 comments »

Last week I received by mail the set of three Footprint planes I bought from Sears on the Internet. I bought them because the price was right and it seemed to be a good value. IN the last month or so I spent countless hour son the Internet reading about hand planes; what the different planes are and what are their respective use, how to tune and how to use them. Of course I have used hand planes before but I really never paid attention to them, I just used them. Lately I found out that they a...

Jet 17" Floor Standing Drill Press

Jet 17" Floor Standing Drill Press

03-07-2010 05:29 PM by Jarrhead | 7 comments »

When I started wood working, a drill press was one of my first tool acquisitions. I bought a Delta 12 inch benchtop model, that has served me well, and continues to do so. Last year when I embarked on the “21st Century Workbench” project (see my project posts), I knew that the little Delta wasn’t going to be up to the task. It doesn’t have the necessary spindle travel to get through 3 inches of lumber, which was required for drilling the dog holes. There had been a...

Excellent Finish Sanding Solution

Excellent Finish Sanding Solution

03-06-2010 10:30 PM by TheDane | 18 comments »

I have been looking for a better sanding solution for door frames, small panels, drawer boxes, etc, and I think I have found it. I ordered an 18” x 2” V-Drum The Works kit from Stockroom Supply (http://www.stockroomsupply.com) in Ontario, Canada. The Works kit includes the 18” drum, bearings, 2 – 10yd rolls of sandpaper, 2 balanced pulleys, Linkbelt, and a plan to build the box. Total cost to build this machine, including the V-Drum kit, motor, materials, and ...

value drill press

value drill press

03-06-2010 06:19 AM by Sawdust4Blood | 11 comments »

A little more than a week ago I was in my local HD to get some sandpaper and saw that they had two new Ridgid 15” drill presses marked down to $150. With my military discount, they would sell it to me for $135. I had been thinking about a drill press though not too seriously but this was a price that was just too good to pass up so I got one. Set up wasn’t too difficult but there were a couple of minor issues. I’m not crazy about the gear track for the table height adjustment. As you c...

Great compressor!

Great compressor!

03-06-2010 05:01 AM by Beginningwoodworker | 14 comments »

I recently bought my Bostitch Trim Air compressor. from Amazon.com for $80.30 and UPS delivered it in a couple of days. There was no damage to either the factory packaging, nor the compressor. I am real impress so far. Pros Light weight., It is easy lug it around when I need to nail up some cabinets or trim. Powerful enough to run my finish and brad nailers. I have not tried it with a framing nailer yet. Noise level. At 75 db, the Bostitch I think its quietest in its cl...

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archives

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archives

03-06-2010 04:37 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

I had a change to test drive the Fine Woodworking DVD of the first 208 Issues of their magazine. It contains a PDF file of all 208 issues from Winter 1975 to the 208 issue in December 2009. The software loaded fairly fast on my computer, I’m not sure of the size but probably about 3 GB of space. Each of the individual issues are in a folder and they can be viewed with Adobe Reader and you can print etc the contents of the file. The front interface that runs when you click on the i...
