Charles Neil The Magic of Routers

2018 days ago by mikega | 9 comments »

The Magic of Routers is Charles Neil’s latest DVD. This is a 5 DVD set that gives you over 10 hours of instructions on everything you want to know about using a router. On disk one he reviews different routers. Then he explains some of the many different types of router bits that are available and how they are used. He then talks about the different ways to guide a router and follows that up with a discussion on hand held routing and using a router table. Although he does not tell you how ...

Put them on your short list

Put them on your short list

2019 days ago by Zuki | 1 comment »

This is a review of Chipping Away – http://www.chippingaway.com/ From their site: Chipping Away began operation in 1992 when Pop (Dennis Moor) took an early retirement and decided to keep a few cans of beans in the cupboard by means of selling his carvings. He soon found himself being asked to teach chip carving as well as present seminars at some of the local wood shows. Rogers Public Television asked him to do a television series of 45 individual shows in which he appeared as H...

Steel City, 35915 Cast Iron Top, 3HP 220V, 50-Inch Industrial Fence and Tableboard

2020 days ago by BTKS | 34 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks,Just received and set up my new Steel City 10 inch cabinet saw with riving knives.A couple other Steel City saws have been reviewed recently, I’ll try to limit myself to what I observed and try not to repeat too much of what the other guys had to say.BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: I love this saw. It was a major investment. I spent many months spread over several years researching cabinet saws. I’ve waited until I believe I won’t have to move this saw for the fo...

Great accessory for the shop

Great accessory for the shop

2021 days ago by jake | 8 comments »

I often make furniture for my home and family. I have a larger miter saw but it is too big and heavy to easily move around and I have a small shop space to deal with. I had an old 8-1/4 Delta miter saw that died after 20 years of faithful service that I would often pull out to use, instead of the 12 incher. I missed that little guy and saw the Craftsman 7-1/4 sliding miter on sale for 99.00. It is usually about 169.00. The small blade is fine for one inch material that I usually use and it wi...

Very Sharp, yes. Scary sharp, no, but a nice tool none the less.

Very Sharp, yes. Scary sharp, no, but a nice tool none the less.

2022 days ago by Emeralds | 14 comments »

I’m as susceptible to good advertising as the next guy and while Pro-Tool Mfg. makes a nice product, they are masters of marketing. So moving past the hype, here’s my take on the WS2000. I’ve hand sharpened my chisels and the few planes I own since I started woodworking and the main reason I hadn’t done more work with my hand tools is because I’ve always hated using my limited time maintaining the edges necessary to do precise work. So when I saw an ad clip fo...

Best screws ever

Best screws ever

2023 days ago by motthunter | 23 comments »

No matter how many years I have been driving screws into wood, I still end up stripping the heads every once in a while and or slipping off with my power driver and foolishly marring the wood in a project. I switched to square drive screws and I have not made a goof like this in ages. I first started using them in pocket hole joinery, but now I use them for everything. There are several sources for these screws but I get mine from McFeeley’s. They have a good selection and prices ...

Hartville Tool Mortise Chisels and Bits

Hartville Tool Mortise Chisels and Bits

2025 days ago by Matt (Upper Cut) | 4 comments »

I recently ordered the set for my new Jet JFM-5. I am very disappointed and will be buying a higher quality bit set. I’ll keep these cheaper chisels for rough work. I’m sure they won’t last long. You can find the link to the set here. Pros:1. Cheap Cons:1. This is a short set. This means that you’ll have to add your arbor extension to your mortiser.2. Not sharp, so you’ll have to sharpen them.3. Not ground to standard angle. I used the Lee Valley hones. A...

Best Value on a sander

Best Value on a sander

2025 days ago by kshipp | 18 comments »

I have had this sander for almost a year now and have used it on a few projects. I was just working on a rocking horse project (link coming soon) and was reminded how much I like this tool. I originally got it for the oscillating spindle and just figured the oscillating belt was a bonus feature. The belt is probably the feature I use the most and it has come in handy numerous times. The table came almost perfectly flat but there are also adjustment screws on the table so you can make it pe...

Ridgid  TS2400LS table saw I can't do without.

Ridgid TS2400LS table saw I can't do without.

2025 days ago by scrollworkman | 17 comments »

I have owned my Ridgid portable for two and half years and now the brushes need replacing. This will be a two week wait for the parts to come in. I will borrow my Dad’s 60 year old Sears table saw while I wait.A life time warranty does not make up for quality.I don’t recall my father’s saw needing repair and if it did the parts were readily available. I love the portability and performance of the Ridgid TS2400LS but I would prefer a two for one deal over a life time warra...
