Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

05-19-2009 08:11 PM 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

05-19-2009 02:49 AM 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

05-17-2009 11:21 PM 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

05-17-2009 10:27 PM 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

05-17-2009 05:10 AM 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

05-15-2009 03:06 PM 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...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

05-15-2009 01:54 PM by jonah | 4 comments »

My wife and I bought a house two years ago, and planned to redo the kitchen pretty extensively. I grew up doing construction projects with my step-father and am able to do framing, drywall, finish work, electrical, and very basic plumbing on my own. We ended up tearing it down to the studs and starting from scratch, and did 99% of the project ourselves. I realized before we started that I was going to need more power tools. I had a drill, jigsaw, circular saw, and hand tools, but had no sp...

A great product

A great product

05-15-2009 04:04 AM by Karson | 19 comments »

I’ve used this product for years. I picked it up at a wood show and I’ve not seen it since. You can buy it online, but I need to find a supplier. I use this product on bandsaw blades, especially good when resawing. I also use it on my Mortising machine to lubricate the drill bit in the chisels. It makes the chips slide easier and cuts down on the heat generated by all of the wood going through the chisels. The Par Enterprises web site

A great accessory for your router

A great accessory for your router

05-14-2009 06:04 PM by GaryK | 28 comments »

Using either one of two wrenches for replace a router bit can be a real pain. Especially if it’s in a router table. This nifty little thing will allow you to replace your router with an allen wrench. This “Eliminator RC Quick Change Chuck” is a combination bit extension and one-tool chuck.Unlike other extensions, it replaces the nut and collet on your router thus minimizing run-out which can occur with some extensions. I hesitated getting one of these things for a l...
