Review - Milwaukee 12v Compact Driver (Model #2401-22)

2058 days ago by DaveH | 9 comments »

Great little tool. I’d recommend it without reservation. I recently drove 50+ 3” stainless screws into pressure treated lumber without a battery swap. Drives a little slower than my 18v Dewalt but I’m not complaining. I’d definitely buy another if it needed replacing. Pros 12v Cordless Driver kit includes 2 batteries, charger, case and two 1/4” locking driver bits Driver clutch has 14 + 1 settings to protect screws when driving into stock Weighs i...

A Very Nice Surprise

A Very Nice Surprise

2059 days ago by USCJeff | 10 comments »

I recently got one of the PS40-2 Impactors as a freebie from a WoodSmith Tip they picked up of mine. I felt I owed it to Bosch (and August Home Publishing) to let my fellow jocks here about the product. I just got it three days ago so I’ll preface all by saying that I obviously am speaking from first and very limited impressions. This is the first impact driver I’ve used. I’ve picked it up at Lowe’s a dozen times and thought it was very small and possibly very...

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

2060 days ago by Tooldads_apprentice | 12 comments »

I bought a starter kit, at my local Home Depot, about a year ago and it is great. The package I bought included A Cordless Drill, A Impact Drill, A Circular Saw, A Radio, A Vacuum, A Reciprocating Saw, and A Sander. I have had only a few problems with it, but for my first set of tools, it is a great set. Problems that I have had include the chuck sticking on the Impact Drill. I wish this kit came with another battery and charger, but I went and bought the extra two batteries and charger. I wo...

Hitachi 10in 40t ATB, good deal at about $25

Hitachi 10in 40t ATB, good deal at about $25

2060 days ago by dsb1829 | 6 comments »

I have been using cheap and hand-me-down blades ever since I got my first tablesaw a couple years ago. Sawing has always been loud. Smoke and dust always looming in the near future for anything thicker than 1/2”. I hadn’t been too pleased with my last purchase. Go figure $10 is not going to cut too well. So I was in Lowe’s the other day. I had a $10 coupon that required me to get my total up to $50 to use. I was drawn over to the saw blades by the Ice finish on the ...

Excellent Marking knife

Excellent Marking knife

2061 days ago by FJPetruso | 9 comments »

Several years ago I purchased a spear point marking knife from Harbor Freight for 4 bucks. I used the marking knife all the time as it has a sharp angle to get into tight corners &, being spear point, it’s “ambidextrous”. It also has a rosewood handle. For probably being made in China it’s a Great Tool! Then one day I swept it up & tossed it out accidentally. I searched Harbor Freight’s site & found that they had discontinued the tool. After a se...

NEW VACUUM

NEW VACUUM

2064 days ago by John Gray | 5 comments »

I purchased this vacuum about a month ago and it has been used ALOT. If has become a favorite tool, it’s so handy to use with the long hose. I also purchased the Ridgid Hepa filter – Model VF6000 which is washable. Filters 99.97% of particles as small as .3 mirons. Now the shop is much cleaner because the 22’ hose lets me go directly to the tool instead of having to move the big and cumbersome Craftsman around the shop, the Craftsman is now dedicated to the table saw unt...

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

2065 days ago by SteveKorz | 7 comments »

I bought this DVD to gain a better understanding of Marquetry. I was very impressed with Silas Kopf’s methods of teaching his craft. Silas described multiple methods of marquetry and parquetry in his DVD. To watch him work gave me an exponential amount of knowledge. I don’t know that I would have obtained all that knowledge if I just read a book or looked at pictures. The back of the DVD case says: Silas Kopf demonstrates the most important ways marquetry and inlay have ...

Brass Set Up Bars - A Must Have For Your Shop

Brass Set Up Bars - A Must Have For Your Shop

2065 days ago by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 10 comments »

These set up bars are GREAT!!! They allow you to make easy and accurate measurements. I have a couple of photos to show you. The first is the brass set up bars in action. I used them to set up the spacing in this router jointing operation. 3/8” set up bar and a 1/2” router bit yields 1/16” off each side. Couldn’t be easier. The second photo is of some boxes I made using the Oak Park router box joint jigs and the Whiteside brass set up bars. Once again, set up was a ...

Groz #4 Bench and Block plane kit

Groz #4 Bench and Block plane kit

2066 days ago by dsb1829 | 23 comments »

I posted a lot of background over at my blog:Link A good user kit, but not for everyone. This is a good gateway kit into hand planes. Not as nice as the high end brands, but about 1/6th the price of them. They do require tuning. Don’t recommend them to your Uncle or a friend who doesn’t have mental capacity or tools to handle the tuning process (no offense to your Uncle).
