Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

07-29-2009 10:51 PM by Mike H | 5 comments »

I got the Kreg Pocket Hole Master system about a year or two ago and have been wanting to add a few more clamps for doing some larger projects under consideration / in the plans. Got a e-mail the other day from woodcraft.com and they had them (Item # 144665) on sale (or Clearance perhaps) for $12.99 each so I ordered (3) of them which just came today. For (3) of them plus shipping cost was $47.96 which I think is a great price as they used to be about $25 per + s/h I believe some of ...

A little pricey, but worth it.

A little pricey, but worth it.

Bought this when I did the drawers for the lego table.My Ryobi drill wouldn’t fit in some of the places I needed it too. I also bought the 3/8 chuck for the drill. In my opinion, these tools preform as designed. I have driven 3 1/2” drywall screws into pine 2×4s with no pilot hole with no problem. Plenty of power. The impact driver is a bit noisy, but that is to be expected. For assebly with screws, they simply cant be beat. I find myself reaching for the drill more of...

Tried this bit out on a round tabouret top and shelf and this bit does a great job. No tearout whatsoever because you’re never going against the grain..The attached link explains it pretty well.Definitely recommended.

How to Use your pneumatic tools without a compressor

How to Use your pneumatic tools without a compressor

07-28-2009 10:17 PM by jerryz | 11 comments »

I got this at WoodCraft and had a chance to use it last weekend with my framing nailer.I drove 2 3/4” nails into 2×4 Pressure Treated Lumber to make a frame. Let’s say that it definetively works as stated.With the 9oz CO2 bottle I was able to complete my project, the nails were driven deeply without issues.I also used it with my brad nailer. It works just like a normal regulator and you can adjust the pressure according to your tool requirements.What I like it most is that I ...

Great way to have 220 without Electrician

Great way to have 220 without Electrician

07-28-2009 05:02 AM by reggiek | 21 comments »

I recently needed 220 in my new shop and had not had the chance to wire up the necessary circuits. A friend of mine recommended that I check out this web page and buy one of these units. It uses two 115 sockets to produce the 220 voltage. I tried the unit with my table saw and was pleased to see that the saw acted the same as it had when connected to a dedicated 220 circuit. Since there were two sockets on the adapter I was also able to hook up my 220 planer and run it with the same suc...

Hitachi Compressor - Nice for the Price

Hitachi Compressor - Nice for the Price

07-27-2009 09:50 PM by reggiek | 5 comments »

I just replaced my old pancake compressor ( A Porter Cable – a few gasps and then gave up the ghost – after about 9 years of very hard service) with this model from Hitachi. It was very reasonably priced even if not on sale!...and has more power and more capacity then my old model. So far it works great!....and I am very happy with the extra capacity. I use the mini compressor’s to blow off tools, work areas, projects and to run finish nailers, staplers, framing nailer...

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

07-27-2009 06:03 PM by FrankLad | 1 comment »

When I decided to move my small woodworking operation indoors, I knew I would need some type of dust collection system. My projects are small – mostly wooden rings and the occasional ring box or other small item, but I still didn’t want even a small amount of fine dust particles floating around in our house. The good thing for me was I knew I wouldn’t require a full-fledged, expensive unit. After a bit of research (thanks to the guys in the LJ forums for suggestions!) I...

Grizzly G0555 Band Saw with Woodslicer Blade - Wow!

Grizzly G0555 Band Saw with Woodslicer Blade - Wow!

07-27-2009 01:21 PM by Greg Wurst | 14 comments »

I finally got to play with the new band saw, and wow what a difference a quality tool and blade make. I bought this primarily for resawing, and so far it has not disappointed. http://www.grizzly.com/products/g0555 The band saw came mostly assembled except for the base and table. It was really stuffed into the Styrofoam, and was a pita to get out. I had to tear the foam apart around the base to get it out. Otherwise, it went together easily. The riser block was easy to install, an...

A great resource for both hand and power tool in woodworking

A great resource for both hand and power tool in woodworking

07-27-2009 05:58 AM by Ben | 1 comment »

When I was in college I wanted to start building things out of wood. So I went to my library (Pickler Memorial at Truman State University) and this is what I found. It was actually a series of three books “Joinery”, “Shaping, Veneering, and Finishing”, and “FurnitureMaking.” It seemed like an older series, but it was all they had so I checked them out. What a great source of information! These books were fanatastic. Tage Frid takes you through everyst...
