I love this blade!

I love this blade!

06-23-2009 04:12 AM by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

In my shop i like things to match. bookmatched especially. and one of my favorite things in the world is projects from all one slab of wood. so naturally i do ALOT a resawing. so for that i need a good resaw blade. This blade really fulfills my need too! I have a 14” bandsaw with the riser block so for resawing i got for the 105” 3 tpi by 3/4” blade. these blades have hook teeth which is very aggressive but also leaves a pretty nice finish. not glue ready by any means but go...

Harbor Freight Portable pocket hole jig

Harbor Freight Portable pocket hole jig

06-22-2009 06:20 AM by Pete_Jud | 5 comments »

I picked up a Kreg single pocket hole jig a couple of weeks ago for 20 bucks and have fallen in love with the concept. Even “Norm” uses the pocket screws for doing face frames. I saw that Harbor Freight had a 2 hole jig that looked like it worked like the Kreg 2 hole jig for a whole lot less money. I thought I would give it a try. I had a 20 percent off any single item coupon and it cost me 54 bucks instead of 99 bucks for the kreg. The Kit came with the step drill, lock col...

a handy, pocket-sized trimming tool

a handy, pocket-sized trimming tool

Full disclosure: I am by no stretch a hand planes expert. I’m hardly even an amateur. I only have a Buck Bros. 6” block plane, and I’m not good with it. However, I got this guy a few months back on a whim, and recently cracked the packaging and gave it a whirl. I found it to be very sharp and properly set up right out of the packaging. All I did was wipe off the protective oil, and I was almost immediately getting full-width, full-length curls from the already fairly ...

Rigid 2410LS

Rigid 2410LS

I purchased the Rigid 2410LS saw from Home Depot yesterday. The saw was retailing for $499 and after tax it came out to $530. I managed to fit the entire unit in the back seat of my 99 Lincoln Town Car by taking it out of the carton. I stuffed the packaging materials in the trunk and slid the saw in the back seat. It was easy enough to lift right in, a bit of a tight fit but compact enough to get in there. That in itself impressed me. I got it home and before I unwrapped the plastic, I too...

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

06-18-2009 06:29 AM by Pete_Jud | 11 comments »

I just ran 300 feet of 1.5 inch doug fir stair treads over a 3/4 inch Freud roundover bit on the router table to bullnose the work. I was very concerned about “tearout” as the old growth doug fir had a lot of tight knots in it. I had no tearout at all, and the I cut the bullnose in just 1 pass per side. The work is ready to install without any sanding. Great finnish. And almost no pitch buildup on the bit. This is the first Quadra-Cut bit that I have used, and I am impressed.

Miterset Standard

Miterset Standard

06-16-2009 11:19 PM by Jim | 9 comments »

I saw a review of this and decided to order and give it a try. It’s a fine product—accurate and simple to use. My kind of tool! What is it? It’s a jig that “sets any miter gauge to precise angles”. It’s pretty self explanatory in its use but the extra cool feature is the aluminum “step bar” that’s provided that allows the jig to set any 1/2° angle between 0° and 55°. Simple and time saving. The inventor also has a miter setting jig for segmented c...

Lumberjocks makes another great recommendation!

Lumberjocks makes another great recommendation!

I can’t really offer a great review because this is actually the first band saw I’ve ever used, literally. After reading the reviews on this web-site I was sold on this saw, There’s one that cost about 200 dollars more that has a brake and a shopfox type base. I also took the advice and ordered a Woodslicer blade from Highland woodworking. I can’t express enough how amazing that woodslicer blade seems. The Woodslicer made me go from “This is cool, I have a nice b...

New affordable sliding mater saw

New affordable sliding mater saw

06-15-2009 04:38 AM by Milo | 5 comments »

Hey True Believers, I’ve needed a new miter saw for too long now, and had actually purchased a 10” Skil from WorkShop tools. A couple weeks back I saw on their website that they had generic SLIDING miter saw for about 140.00. It was TD 10” Sliding Miter saw. Well, I’ve been trying to figure out where to put a big Radial arm saw I had (and had never used) and ended up taking the plunge with the new sliding miter instead. Since I had never opened up the box with...

Great Kit to repair my ole Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Hook & Loop pad

Great Kit to repair my ole Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Hook & Loop pad

06-14-2009 06:10 AM by Dan'um Style | 14 comments »

I’m on my 2nd Dewalt random orbital sander … ..As anyone who uses hook and loop sanders know, if the sand paper ever comes off while working ,the Velcro pad on the sander gets messed up real quick . Sandpaper will never stick right again. I’ve gone thru the process of replacing the factory replacement part four times. Three times on the oldest sander and one time on my newer piece, Not cheap... ...I found Ali-Gator-grit repair kit for 11 bucks at Lowes. It comes with...
