Adds variable speed, subtracts power

Adds variable speed, subtracts power

07-28-2018 12:29 AM by JayT | 18 comments »

A few years ago, I got a great deal on a 10in Jet lathe that was on closeout. I wanted variable speed, but the deal was too good to pass up. I also knew this kit from Penn State Industries existed and thought I could do the conversion in the future and still have less invested than buying a new variable speed lathe. During the recent Mallet Swap, I was doing a lot of turning and finally decided to spring for this kit and was looking forward to not switching belts near as much. Issue #1,...

Gluboost vs CA for pen finishing

Gluboost vs CA for pen finishing

07-26-2018 06:36 PM by Andybb | 1 comment »

OK, I got my Gluboost trio the other day. In short, I like it a lot. First heard about Gluboost here, then read more about it here. Originally used by luthiers, there are a few youtube vids on the product. Sanded to 400-600 as usual. Then I used 2 coats of the thicker blue bottle of Fill n Finish with a spritz of accelerator in between, a quick wipe with .0000 steel wool, and repeat with 2-3 coats of the orange bottled thin formula and another light wipe of .0000, all with the lathe of...

Clear Gorilla Glue - Good for exotic oily woods

Clear Gorilla Glue - Good for exotic oily woods

07-25-2018 05:57 PM by EarlS | 8 comments »

I used several exotic woods for the 2018 mallet swap. Titebond glue was not recommended for use with the more oily exotics such as katalox, cocobolo, granadillo, bloodwood, African black wood. and ziricote. Research came up with Gorilla Clear Glue as a good candidate for these kinds of wood. The local orange box store had it in stock ~$6 for 3.75 oz. My application was laminating boards together, face-to-face. It spread quite well using a disposable brush. Initially, I applied it too...

Review of Powertec T-Tracks - Save 50% over Rockler T-Tracks

Review of Powertec T-Tracks - Save 50% over Rockler T-Tracks

07-25-2018 10:06 AM by Dan Thomas | 23 comments »

[EDIT] Apparently, I misunderstood the “review” category. So please forgive me for only pointing to my YouTube video. Here’s a more comprehensive review. The only t-tracks I’ve used in the past have been from Rockler. 3/4” wide, 3/8” thick, and made from aluminum. They work great, and if you buy them on sale, they’re not too terribly expensive. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed on Amazon that Powertec has t-tracks that appear to be virtually iden...

Grizzly G0457 Review

Grizzly G0457 Review

07-24-2018 01:58 AM by Wstein | 2 comments »

I recently purchased the Grizzly G0457 and let me say I have been impressed with so far. I decide a few months ago I needed a bandsaw to resaw some 6/4 and 8/4 wood I had in my shop for boxes for my nieces. I looked at several different ones, my wife even got me a small benchtop bandsaw. For the price and specs, the Grizzly G0457 stood out to me. I know for the money I spent I could have gotten a 17” model instead for a little bit more. But the G0457 had the 2hp motor, 220volt con...

Paint Can Rim Cleaner

Paint Can Rim Cleaner

07-23-2018 03:10 PM by John Smith | 10 comments »

well – the Paint Dozer is not for the handyman that uses only quart cans of paint and finishes.the Dozer is for gallon cans only. I found it to be no better than the paper towel,t-shirt, toilet paper, Q-Tip and all the other things we use to clean the rims with.plus – it only works only on CLEAN rims – so if there is hardened paint in the rim,this plastic thing-a-ma-jig is as useless as – - – - well, it is just plain USELESS.the only thing true with the ad i...

Craftsmans' Delight

Craftsmans' Delight

07-20-2018 08:56 PM by AandCstyle | 8 comments »

I work mostly in the Craftsman /Arts & Crafts/Stickley style. The furniture in the house was mostly original and, oftentimes, was in the house when Stickley lived there. I was hoping to see a great banister design that I would be able to use in my home, but my last name doesn’t start with an “S”. The really amazing thing is that after Stickley sold the house only one family lived in the house before it was converted into a museum and they made almost no changes to th...

If you want a great miter gauge

If you want a great miter gauge

07-20-2018 07:25 PM by Jacksdad | 7 comments »

I got the Kreg Miter gauge for my birthday, it’s great. I taught a segmented turning class at Woodcraft and I was going to show how to fix if your segments are not perfect, 1 cut 16 pieces and put them together and no gap, so much for that idea. It comes perfect from the factory, if you aren’t getting perfect angles your saw needs adjusting. It cuts accurately to a tenth of a degree, I highly recommend it.
