Bosch Trim Router

Bosch Trim Router

1968 days ago by Moron | 33 comments »

I bought this little router at HD as my 25 year old, never failed me, Black and Decker trim router was sounding like it was about to puke. I didnt look at prices as I am somewhat a believer in “buy once” ...then “cry once” then never cry again so it wasnt the least expensive one there. I use my trim router a lot, mostly for routing in butt hinges then clean it up with a chisel, same for inlaid bowties and “trimming” veneer and plastics etc., On first, se...

Porter Cable Air Compressor

Porter Cable Air Compressor

1969 days ago by JayDee | 10 comments »

I replaced my old Husky air compressor with the one shown. This model is much quieter with twice the horse power. It is a two stage, oil free compressor with a 25 gal. tank. I find the whole unit is built much better than the Husky I had. I brlieve it was worth the extra money. I also ran about 60 lin. ft. of hard air lines with three drops. Each drop has a petcock to release condensation build-up and a quick disconnect. The air lines cost me about $200.00 in materials and about 7 hours labor...

Harbor Freight wetstone sharpener p/n: 95236

Harbor Freight wetstone sharpener p/n: 95236

1970 days ago by dsb1829 | 12 comments »

I posted up a couple of reviews of this grinder on youtube shortly after purchase: I don’t find myself using this tool all that much, but when I need to use it the thing is very handy to have around. Depending on your definition of sharp this could be the only sharpener in your shop. I have taken chisels from the wheel to the strop and been back to work in a couple of minutes. Not as nice as a hand-honed edge, but if you are hacking mortises or rough work it is just fine. So ...

Powermatic PM1300

Powermatic PM1300

1970 days ago by hairy | 8 comments »

I’m starting to take over the basement now that the garage is full. I promised to keep it clean,and this is a big part of that. All I have connected at this time is a lathe, but that will change. I looked at just about everything that I could go and look at.To me, this was the ideal machine. Good specs, small size,not real loud. Speaking of specs: Impeller diameter = 12” Sound rating at 3 ft (db) = 75 – 90 Air flow at 6” (CFM) = 1,064Velocity at 6” (F...

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

1970 days ago by TraumaJacques | 0 comments »

I don’t know about you but I use screwdrivers allot around the shop. The problem is that there are so many different type and size of screws that I need several on hand at all time. They inevitably fall on the floor roll under the bench or simply disappear or blend in the mess on the bench top. Over the years I have bought several “multi “screwdrivers and they pretty much all were garbage. Now this one I must say is the “best screwdriver I have ever owned and will never buy an...

Tool of last Resort

Tool of last Resort

1972 days ago by littlecope | 3 comments »

What’s so special about a saw? I was moved to write this last week when i had occasion to use this baby again, my “tool of last resort”. I wanted to change the orientation of tenons on my current project and was dreaming up all of these sophisticated set-ups, involving V-blocks and clamps, when it occurred to me to just cut the things using this saw! And, as always when I use it, I wonder why this tool isn’t on my front line of attack. It cuts like a dream! When I boug...

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

1972 days ago by trifern | 30 comments »

The Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe is an enticing machine based on it’s price point, horse power, and features. I would not recommend it. Don’t get me wrong, I have made some fairly nice pieces on it. However, I wish I had never purchased it. In one year I have replaced the belt around 10 times, replaced all bearings, replaced the tool rest, and replaced the tail stock hand wheel twice. The tail stock and head stock do not align, it vibrates, and is noisy.

Evolution rage Review

Evolution rage Review

1973 days ago by toolman | 3 comments »

If your like us you might never have heard of the power tool manufacture called Evolution power tools. We tested this bad boy the other day and it is awesome. Lots of power and very easy to control. We cut Rebar, wood with nails, plastic and aluminum. Oh yeah, it was all with one blade. They also offer a diamond blade and we cut through concrete and stone with no problem. The interesting thing about this saw is after we cut the steel, we could work with it right away, it wasn’t ho...

Nothing plain about this plane!

Nothing plain about this plane!

1974 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 16 comments »

This is my 1000th post so I thought I should make it special; so I will write about a great plane my great wife gave me for my birthday (its actually on Sunday but we were in Winnipeg visiting my brother and his wife so we had an impromptu birthday party there). Any way this is of course a Lee Valley tool and you can go to their web page for dimensions etc. I’ll just write about my impression of the tool. First off is the heft of the tool, its got a good solid feel to it and the tote...

Storage Units

Storage Units

1974 days ago by Randy Sharp | 10 comments »

These little gadgets (cans) are recycled from another use, but come in very handy in the storage of misc. nuts, bolts, washers, etc. I own a small collection of these storage devices myself. This company produces several colors, versions and sizes. Other companys also produce these economical units.
