Easy beginner spray gun, but holy ear protection batman.......

01-16-2018 04:41 AM by Mike_D_S | 9 comments »

So, my partner and I have a big cabinet job which has quite a bit of priming and painting to do. In order for us to both be able to work, I picked up the Earlex spray station HV5500 last week from Rockler on sale ($299 with the extra 1.5mm tip and a $50 gift card). I finally broke it out today and put 4-5 hours of fairly continuous work in spraying Zinsser BIN primer. I’m no expert, but I’ve been spraying lacquer, poly, etc top coats from a HF gun for a couple of years with p...

A great folding bucksaw for hiking and/or tree trimming

A great folding bucksaw for hiking and/or tree trimming

01-14-2018 01:58 AM by MalcolmLaurel | 1 comment »

I don’t remember where I saw the Fast Bucksaw some years ago, but I added it to the running “I want this” list my family uses for birthday and Christmas presents. Anyway, my wife bought it for me for this past Christmas. Since then, I’ve taken it out on a couple of hikes. Previously, I used a small folding camp saw to collect the mountain laurel branches I used for my lamps and other work. It’s nice and compact works great for small stuff, but once you get...

Digital Shop clock you can see any angle

Digital Shop clock you can see any angle

01-13-2018 03:37 AM by Rayne | 3 comments »

Anyone been looking for a robust, digital weather station that you can hang in your shop, see the temperature AND relative Humidity outside, inside, shop, AND can actually read it from any angle and most distances? If this is you, Marathon has the answer for you! I have been hunting down for a good weather station for my shop for a long time. I’ve tried several where it was just impossible to read at most angles if you’re not directly facing it. I looked at the details on this...

Tiny, but powerful

Tiny, but powerful

01-09-2018 09:54 PM by MrRon | 8 comments »

I have been looking for a small, inexpensive vacuum cleaner that I can attach to an orbital spindle sander. My DC and 16 gal vacuum is overkill for this task. Searching through catalogs, I came across this. It is 1 HP, 1 gallon capacity. I read reviews on-line and just about all were 4 and 5 star. On the positive side, suction is powerful for it’s diminutive size and it is light. On the negative side, it was loud, the cord and the hose was too short. For less than $40 and free shipping,...

Worksharp 3000

Worksharp 3000

01-09-2018 04:43 AM by Jacksdad | 13 comments »

I got the Worksharp 3000 for Christmas and I’m really impressed. It comes with 2 glass plates and 120, 400, 1000, and 3600 grit sandpaper, plus 1 slotted wheel with matching sandpaper. Chisel and plane blades slide in from underneath, it’s as hard to sharpen as an electric pencil sharpener. You can also sharpen from the top or there’s a free hand way to sharpen from underneath. It’s a fast and easy way to sharpen, you can also sharpen carving tools, I highly recommen...

Howard Butcher Block Oil, Conditioner, and Cleaner

Howard Butcher Block Oil, Conditioner, and Cleaner

01-09-2018 12:41 AM by DMiller | 14 comments »

I don’t normally review products, but this is one i’d like to because I can’t say enough good about the people at Howard. Long story short, several months ago I bought a bottle of Howard’s Cutting Board Oil. Around a month later, I was fortunate to sell a large number of my products to a high end decor store. They bought cutting boards, cheese knives, and spatulas; because of this food safety and finish durability was extremely important. Around half of the product...

A Great Finish for Furniture Projects

A Great Finish for Furniture Projects

01-08-2018 10:29 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 9 comments »

I have been using this finish now for a few months and have really found it to be a great finish for furniture projects. Especially, if they are going to be subject to water. I started out putting it on a bathroom vanity top made of cypress. Beautiful color and depth was achieved with multiple coats and sanding between coats with 400 grit. Final coats we wet sanded. I next used it on an antique table restoration and couldn’t have been more pleased as well as my client. Finally,...

Bauer Model 1791C-B1 20V vs. Rigid Gen X Brushless 18V Model R86009

Bauer Model 1791C-B1 20V vs. Rigid Gen X Brushless 18V Model R86009

01-07-2018 08:58 PM by Tennessee | 12 comments »

My Rigid R82009 drills, (shown in the second picture) which the date code tells me that these were made in the 15th week of 2011, are starting to lose their battery life. I know, I should have registered them, but if I even did, (can’t remember), to find that paperwork to cash in on very expensive batteries would be somewhat of a miracle. Can you find a receipt from six years ago? Well, good for you…I cannot.In any case, I was tiring a bit of the power of these, and even though ...

Wake up and see the light and up close too

Hi friendsI ordered these Head Mount Magnifier with LED Head Light a couple months ago since I planned on starting an online carving class I thought it would help see the details of smaller carvings and I found they work great, for a 70-year-old guy I have pretty good vision I’m even able to read small print on medication bottles etc,but I found these somewhat funny looking glasses to not only magnifies (5 different strength lenses) very well but it adds a lot of light right were your ...

Best Option I've Found

Best Option I've Found

01-07-2018 01:41 PM by EarlS | 16 comments »

I read an article written by a hand surgeon for Popular Woodworking. “In the hundreds of table saw injuries I’ve seen, I’ve yet to see an amputation from a table saw with an appropriate blade guard and splitter. There have never been many good reasons to remove the guard; now with better-designed saws, guards and riving knives, there are even fewer. I’ve seen woodworkers injured on the “backstroke” as they bring a hand back over an unprotected blade after a cut, those who didn’t see ...
