Amana tambour door router bit set - slick idea

Amana tambour door router bit set - slick idea

1926 days ago by Brandon | 8 comments »

I have been wanting to build my wife a roll top desk for some time but the dilemma always came in on how to make the tambour. The new bit set from Amana is a great idea! No more having to glue slats to canvas or drilling the slats to run a cable down through them. The bits worked great and made it real easy to use different woods. The one drawback that I found was in the instructions and video. They state to mill the stock to 1/2” x 1 15/16” and that is what I did. The iss...

Wixey WR300 Digital Angle Gauge

Wixey WR300 Digital Angle Gauge

1927 days ago by Emeralds | 31 comments »

The Wixey WR300 angle gauge is the perfect device for setting up a table saw, jointer table, bandsaw or any device that requires specific angle juxtaposition. Beyond setting your tool at a 90 degree angle, the WR300 allows you to get +/- 0.1º and for those in need of accurate angle cuts, this can only be a good thing. Aside from setting the tools themselves this little device takes all the guess work out of jig construction, drill press hole angles and anything requiring a precise, repeat...

Why did it take so long?

Why did it take so long?

1927 days ago by JuniorJoiner | 12 comments »

I have wanted one of these saws since I first laid eyes on one. Rob Cosman had a set of these in his toolkit , and I first got to handle one about 4 years ago. The problem was that rob’s was kinked. so I didn’t get to use it. My new Lie-Nielsen panel saw arrived today, so the first thing i did was rip open the packaging and put it through it’s paces.I may not be extremely accomplished as a furniture maker, but i have done my share of construction with hand tools, and feel...

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

1928 days ago by Jim | 6 comments »

My 18V Makita finally died and I needed a replacement. I decided to get a more compact drill driver because I wanted to be able to get inside drawers, tight spaces, etc., not to mention the handyness of carrying a smaller tool. The PS30 isn’t as small as the PS20. The chuck is 3/8” – which I also wanted. And that’s what I got—not as big as a 1/2” drive, not as small as a 1/4”. Heavier and more powerful than just a driver but not as heavy as an 18V...

Bessy double headed clamp

Bessy double headed clamp

1928 days ago by kosta | 27 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I was at lowes today getting another toolbox for all my stuff and I saw this double headed c clamp. Now i was like what the hell is that but if you think about it you can clamp 2 seperate pices of wood to your bench with 1 clamp. Now this is a 12 in c clamp and it cost me like $10 so I was like well jet beat bessy out with the paraell bar clamps so this is there way of coming back and it is really a good idea. The jaws are padded so they wont screw up the wood or what e...

14" Band Saw Riser Kit for Harbor Freight Band Saw

14" Band Saw Riser Kit for Harbor Freight Band Saw

1930 days ago by FJPetruso | 22 comments »

About 5 years ago I purchased a Harbor Freight Band Saw & the Riser Kit. I never installed the riser kit & stored it away until I needed it. Last month I failed to use my metal detector & while resawing some walnut I hit a foot peg, like the ones linemen screw into power poles, that the tree had completely grew around & ruined my band saw blade. So I took this opportunity to install the riser kit. I figured I would be playing with & tuning the saw up the whole day. Bu...

Upgraded mini-lathe

Upgraded mini-lathe

1930 days ago by Sawdust2 | 6 comments »

I’d been using a Carba-Tec mini-lathe for so long I can’t remember when I bought it.When my 65th birthday came around (remember my b’day cake?)I decided to get the variable speed version. A while back I had tried to make my old mini-lather variable but you just can’t do that with an old AC motor So here is a picture of the new one right out of the box I also order a 4 jaw chuck so I could try some new turning stuff. One thing that surprised me is the tool kit ...

Contractors Saw

Contractors Saw

1930 days ago by Wingstress | 39 comments »

I just bought a SawStop two weeks ago. I bought the “contractors” saw instead of the cabinet saw. I put contractors in quotes because it still weighs over 300 lbs. I got the cast iron wings instead of the aluminum ones with a 36-inch fence, extension table, mobil base, dado cartridge, dado brake, for about $2300. Its the same exact table dimensions you get with the cabinet saw, but between $1000-$2000 cheaper. I would seriously look into the contractors saw. Really I don’t see any reason to g...

Pinewood Forge -kolrosing from the recliner

Pinewood Forge -kolrosing from the recliner

1932 days ago by Elaine | 10 comments »

I was in a quandary several weeks ago, fractured heel/ripped tendon and a “fashionable” new boot. I was googling -woodworking from the barcalounger (recliner) or some such and ran across Del Stubb’s Pinewood Forge sight. Ordered a couple packages -kolrosing and spoon carving along with the knives. The tools are wonderful, easy to use and easy to sharpen. The Kolrosing Knife itself is a piece of art, well balanced and comes sharpened and ready to use. IMHO, prices are ve...
