First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

1866 days ago by handi | 3 comments »

Not quite available in stores yet, I got the chance to test and review Micro Jig’s “ZeroPlay” miter bars. They are really two pieces with opposing wedges molded in that spread them to fit the miter slot. Set screws lock the bars once adjusted. They are molded of glass filled nylon, which makes them durable as well as slick enough to slide well. The bars are short at 9 1/2”, but because they make full contact with the slot along their entire length, they are surp...

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

1866 days ago by TheDane | 14 comments »

Review: Shop Fox Classic Fence Bottom line: The “Shop Fox Classic Fence” has proven to be an excellent addition to my workshop. My table saw is a Jet JWTS-10 (708100). I have always liked this saw (see review at http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/333), but was never completely satisfied with the fence. After a good deal of online research, I settled on the “Shop Fox Classic Fence”, and found a very good deal on it from Warren Cutlery, a Shop Fox dealer in Rhinebec...

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

1866 days ago by ShannonRogers | 4 comments »

I took a trip up to Chester County, PA this weekend to take a class with Chuck Bender’s school, The Acanthus Workshop. Chuck goes by the handle Acanthuscarver here on LJ. What a treat! I have been woodworking now for 7 years and hardly do I think of myself as an expert, but I admit to being a little dubious as to how much I would get out of a fundamentals I class. Because the focus was on hand tools, I was more optimistic because I am pretty new to the way of the Schwarz having R...

I want to let everyone know who doesn’t know or who has not visited the website prowoodworkingtips.com to please take the time to do so.. when I started out to make the tv lift cabinet and try my hand at veneering.. it was Lee Jesberger and his website that made my life so much easier.. I made all the jigs and bought all the tools he recommends on his site and ever asked Lee himself where to buy certain things I could not find at my local Rockler store.. the site is extremely informativ...

mail order hardwood lumber

mail order hardwood lumber

1869 days ago by KDL | 25 comments »

This is a wood source review. I was impressed enough with the vendor to want to post. They are knowledgeable and personable. I’m building cabinets and wanted quartersawn/rift cherry for the door rails and stiles. My local supplier doesn’t separate cherry into rift and quartered, so I went to the Internet and found http://www.dunham-hardwoods.com. Marty, the gentleman I dealt with, understood what I wanted, was able to find the material, hit-or-miss plane it, cut it to a shi...

Ordered New Lathe Today

Ordered New Lathe Today

1871 days ago by StanCurtis | 17 comments »

Today I ordered a new JET JWL-1442VSK wood lathe. The dealer did not have one in-stock, but it is to be delivered from the distribution center on Friday per his promise. I would like to thank ND2ELK for introducing me to LumberJocks.com. The reviews and forums were a great help to me. One of the reasons I chose this particular lathe is the accessories I have for my JET 1014 lathe are nearly all usable on the larger unit. My small lathe, which I have been using for three or four years, w...

Jorgensen 7200 Series Bar Clamp

Jorgensen 7200 Series Bar Clamp

1872 days ago by tenontim | 8 comments »

I’ve been upgrading my clamp collection, to include these 7200 series bar clamps, by Jorgensen. I had a couple of older Jorgensen clamps, and was happy with them. They were a quality product. Recently, I purchased a dozen of the 36” bar clamps, to replace the bar clamps that I normally use for my table top glue ups. The first time I used these clamps, I had the clutch plates on 4 clamps break. One clamp broke all 5 clutches at the same time. I was quite disappointed, since t...

Makita MAC2400 Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

Makita MAC2400 Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

1872 days ago by ND2ELK | 13 comments »

My lovely wife posted this tool review in one of my blogs by mistake. I wasn’t about to complain about it at that time. One thing I have learned over the years is, if MaMa does something nice for you, Never complain! Now that it has been awhile I thought I should post it in the tool review section. After doing a lot of reserch and looking at different compressors, I settled on this Makita. It is by far the most unbelievably quit compressor I have ever heard. Because my shop is small,...

Ryobi 18v Impact Driver

Ryobi 18v Impact Driver

1872 days ago by JMG | 12 comments »

I bought this impact to replace an old DeWalt driver. I got the driver, a compact drill, 2 compact lithium batteries, and a charger for only $179 instead of a new DeWalt impact with no battery for $279. Sounded like a good deal so I jumped on it even though the Ryobi’s torque didn’t come close to the DeWalt(880 in/lbs for the Ryobi and 1,330 in/lbs for the DeWalt). The Ryobi struggled to drive lags into the old petrified wood of the house I was adding the deck on. It also bogg...

1873 days ago by blackcherry | 14 comments »

My latest project was constructing a wooden hand plane / smoother type. The blade that I ordered came from Hock a company out of Ft. Bragg California.
