First Dovetails Ever.  Easy as Pie with the Akeda BC24 Dovetail Jig

First Dovetails Ever. Easy as Pie with the Akeda BC24 Dovetail Jig

1842 days ago by thiel | 21 comments »

First, Some BackgroundThere’s one thing I should clarify so you’ll put this jig in the proper perspective: I’ve never made a dovetail. Not by hand, not by machine. I’ve never even seen a dovetail jig used (except on New Yankee Workshop). To be perfectly honest, I didn’t (until this morning) know the difference between a pin and a tail. That being said, I have aspirations of building fine furniture of my own design some day. And with those aspirations in mind, I try to make each tool p...

Possibly the best pushblock ever made

Possibly the best pushblock ever made

1843 days ago by Chris Wright | 17 comments »

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit strong of a statement, but it is a great push block. This push block allows you to feed stock through a table saw on both sides of the blade, parallel with out any slipping. One of the sides is 1/4 wide, the other is a 1/2 inch and there’s an adjustable center foot that can be slide to the left or right to make way for the blade. On the bottom is a great gripping surface that will find positive grip on just about any surface, well every surface I’...

Harbor Freight Tools Work Bench affordable and useful

Harbor Freight Tools Work Bench affordable and useful

1844 days ago by PKP | 20 comments »

I bought this Bench on sale for 159 dollars. plus tax for a total of 175.( I know TN sales tax is high). The Bench was easily put together in about 2 hours. I have to say for the money I dont think you could buy the wood to make your own workbench. I needed a workbench instead of using a door setting on top of 2 old speakers as a work table. The table top is flat and is finger jointed oak, The drawer sides and bottoms are not solid oak but MDF. All the rest of the bench is oak. The inst...

Powermatic Benchtop Mortiser, Model PM701

Powermatic Benchtop Mortiser, Model PM701

1845 days ago by Don K. | 19 comments »

As many of you know, I have had a heck of a time getting a new benchtop mortiser lately. I had a Steel City Mortiser that I loved….and so did my dad. So I ordered him one from Woodcraft for fathers day, after several weeks of no mortiser, I finally got a e-mail from Woodcraft saying that Steel-city had missed three shipping dates and that the did not know when or even IF they would ever get them in. So they offered me a choice…get a full refund on what I paid ($269 on sale) or the...

Grizzly G0690 Table Saw with riving knife

Grizzly G0690 Table Saw with riving knife

1846 days ago by LHFLORIDA | 9 comments »

Received the saw about 2 weeks ago. Arrived in perfect condition. Picked it up from freight office using a flat bed trailer—-recommend using trailer and not truck. Four of us moved it to it’s mobile base ( I used the Delta mobile base and would recommend it for this saw). Table is well finished and flat. Assembly was simple and no “duh” moments. Saw has plenty of power and runs smooth with little or no vibration. I am sure it was just the luck of the draw, but my sa...

Hi Guys. I don’t know if I’m doing this right or not. There was a previous review of this gun and I just wanted to give my review as well.Came across Woodgal’s entry about the Critter so I read more reviews from Amazon.

Not for the Feinthearted

Not for the Feinthearted

1847 days ago by Roger Clark aka Rex | 20 comments »

I have looked at the Fein Multi Multimaster and the Rockwell offering, then sighed as I looked at my Social Security check.There is no way I could afford or justify this ocaissionaly used tool nomatter how great it was. Looks like it is waaaaaaaaaay overpriced considering for the same money you could get a good saw,router setup and many other heavy usage necessary tools. Yesterday I had to take the wife on her weekly pilgrimage to Walmart, so after dropping her off there I scooted around t...
