A plug cutter set well worth a plug.

A plug cutter set well worth a plug.

03-20-2009 12:53 AM by Emeralds | 3 comments »

I’ve been looking around for good value in plug cutters and as usual decided to start at the bottom of the price ladder and work my way up. It didn’t take much time to realize that there are times when cheap simply won’t “cut” it. (pardon the pun). After three products from as many different vendors all failed to impress, I landed at the MLCS website. I skipped right over their 8 piece plug cutter set as it was very similar to the Rockler product that I had al...

A Bonafide Bargain in a Full Kerf General Purpose Blade

A Bonafide Bargain in a Full Kerf General Purpose Blade

03-19-2009 02:38 PM by knotscott | 3 comments »

The Oshlun 40T general purpose blade is a fairly standard ATB design with a steep positive hook, large C4 micrograin carbide teeth, thick steel plate, 0.125” kerf, and copper silencers. The fact that it’s available for ~ $25 is the most distinctive feature that separates it from other good quality 40T general purpose blades. It’s surprisingly well made, is very sharp, and performs well within the range capabilities of a blade of this design. It’ll rip glue ready edg...

Here comes the DeWalt Track Saw - Lookout Festool

Here comes the DeWalt Track Saw - Lookout Festool

03-19-2009 06:10 AM by GaryK | 30 comments »

After receiving the Dewalt Track Saw I recently won in the Winter 2009 CompetitionI tried it out so that I could write a review for it. The first thing I wanted to point out that separates it from the Festool Version isthat you can set it on it’s side and cut parallel to the surface it’s sitting on.Look at the second picture and you can see the two black stripes. Those are slipperymaterial making it move smoothly. Great for trimming the bottom of a door in place. It has a ni...

CMT 10" 40T Full Kerf Blade - No Joy

CMT 10" 40T Full Kerf Blade - No Joy

03-18-2009 01:50 PM by knotscott | 10 comments »

The CMT 213.040.10 is a full kerf premium 40 tooth ATB saw blade intended mainly for use on a TS. I really wanted to like this blade…the attention grabbing orange color is so cool, plus it gives a constant warning to keep hands away. This was to be my new daily user for my new Shop Fox cabinet saw, but ultimately I’m disappointed as it underperformed expectations. There are pronounced swirl marks on the edges of every cut that make glue-ups straight from the saw marginally acce...

Lyle Jamieson - Bowl Basics, The Easy Way

Over the weekend, I get a e-mail notification from Wood Magazine that they have a new service where you can purchase and download video tutorials. You can find the service here. While this review is not about Iamplify, I would highly recommend it. While the price is the same as the DVD and the quality isn’t quite as high, there is something to discovering a tutorial you like and then being able to watch it 20 minutes later without having to go to the store or wait for the video to be de...

Pulling nails... it doesn't get any easier than this.

Pulling nails... it doesn't get any easier than this.

So I’m new to this whole wood working thing. In the short time I’ve been doing some renovation work to my house, I’ve found the biggest headache I have is removing fasteners from wood I want to reclaim, or reuse. With what I had on hand I had the tendency to get a little frustrated and literally destroy the wood during a fit (must be my Irish blood), or marring it to a point it was rendered useless. While searching online a week ago I found an interesting device (i won&...

Why I didn't end up getting this one

Why I didn't end up getting this one

03-16-2009 03:33 PM by PurpLev | 30 comments »

For lack of current online info on this saw, I thought someone might be of use to the bits of info I’ve been able to get on this saw after contacting SteelCity (which knows no details on this saw yet) and going to Woodcraft and seeing it live – which was very dissapointing. The first disappointment was when I saw the photo that woodcraft posted of this new saw which was completely different then what Steelcity had posted in their ‘upcoming new products’ flyer. I had...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...

Traditional Woodworking Tools

Traditional Woodworking Tools

03-16-2009 05:55 AM by Cam | 0 comments »

At a recent Wood Show I met a gentlemen by the name of Graham Blackburn, an Englishman that was the Hand Tool Rodeo expert giving presentations. I sat through all of his seminars and learned more in those hours that I ever had. I’ve gone after every book and web site I could get my hands on and all of those fall in the shadow of his book, Traditional Woodworking Hand Tools. This hardcover book is written like good books used to be, with thick rich pages and beautiful headings and tit...
