Quality Machine, Quality Customer Service, Highly Recommended!

I received some appletree logs from someone on craigslist, and was contemplating how I can get them into project lumber. I had looked around for small mills, but it wasn’t really worth it since I only have a few smaller logs… then it got me to think, maybe I can do it myself… hence started the interest in bandsaws. the more I researched about it, the more I was fascinated by the capabilities of a bandsaw and all the things it can do. I have a fairly limited budget, and so...

Horton Brasses = reputable service

Horton Brasses = reputable service

04-17-2009 10:25 PM by Don Newton | 11 comments »

Lumberjocks, Quite often our reviews are for hand tools or machines, and rightly so, but the crowning touch to many furniture building projects is hardware. I am a hobbyist who enjoys building period furniture. The hardware available at Horton Brasses is second to none, whether it is a pair of hinges or a set of Chippendale style pulls for a highboy, and their customer service department is the model that all company’s should aspire to. As a consumer with choices, who’s mone...

skil 6 in grinder

skil 6 in grinder

04-16-2009 04:14 AM by kosta | 2 comments »

This grinder is a good grinder to start off with but you need to replace the crappy gray wheels that come with the grinder you should get the white ones with dont wear off as much but other than that it is a nice grinder. A good add on is to build bigger platforms or tools rests because the ones that come with this are not very big for a no. 7 jointer plane blade. This grinder costs about $50.00 and their are things to upgrade but nobody buys a a $2000 cabinet saw and doesnt upgrade the fenc...

Ultimate saw horse/table

Ultimate saw horse/table

04-12-2009 03:09 PM by Scott Oldre | 12 comments »

This is the ultimate accessory in my garage shop. It, and it’s twin, gets pulled out on nearly every single project I take on. Sometimes it becomes semi permanent, and other times it’s out for an hour or two. I saw this table/horse about 2 years ago while strolling down the “Hey look at me, take me home” display isle at Home Depot and since I was with my wife she nonchalantly wiped the drool from my chin and said “Lets go to the plants now!” Since it wa...

Norton Multi-Oilstone IM313 - I think this is my last sharpening system - updated with video

Norton Multi-Oilstone IM313 - I think this is my last sharpening system - updated with video

04-11-2009 05:47 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 21 comments »

I have been looking at this system for a couple of years now. I finally decided to click the buy button and I’m glad I did. Like most of you, I have tried a lot of sharpening systems. Here are the ones I have tried and the reasons I decided to buy this one and lay the rest aside. Scary Sharp - A good system if you like buying sandpaper all the time. I used it for a long time. The cost of consumables quickly adds up. Work Sharp - A good system but ditto on the consumables. ...

PORTER-CABLE ROUTER BITS

HELLO , I’m not sure if this is posted in the correct place , so bear with me , Site Police . LOL…I ALSO POSTED IT IN THE forums section , but was unable to post any pix there. It’s too bad that there isn’t anywhere here specifically to post items that we find on sale to help out our jockbuddies. (that I know of ) I went to the W.Springfield MA Woodcraft store today for a bandsaw blade and was introduced to a very nice display of P-C router bits at clearance prices....

Buyer Beware!

Buyer Beware!

04-08-2009 04:10 AM by Topapilot | 34 comments »

A store called “Big Lots!” moved into town this winter, and since I’d heard about clamp deals there I went to find out. They do have “deals”, F-type clamps for $6, parallel clamps for $10. I’ve purchased three types of clamps, the first put to the test were these 24” F-style bar clamps. At the store I was carefull to check that they all worked properly, then bought 10 for $60. When using them I found two problems, and one is a show stopper. Fir...

Heating the shop

Heating the shop

04-07-2009 11:29 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 23 comments »

5 year update:After about 5 years this heater is still working, still heating my shop up to shirt temperatures quickly and costing me about $100/yr to run when I use it often. Needs blowing out with air each season but still starting and running well. Summer is arriving. But, winter will be back. If you live in a cool climate I’d like to share my experiences with shop heat with you. I see a lot of people in blogs who say that they’d like to work but it’s too cold or they ...

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

04-07-2009 08:57 PM by CharlieD | 13 comments »

Recently, I bought the JacPac CO2 portable compressor product and it sat in my shop for a couple of months before I used it. I like it a lot and will use it a lot… going forward. It is very handy when you have to do work outside a location where you have a compressor or one with no electricity. I took it to a house where I needed to finish up a small job. I took my Bostitch 15 gauge angle nailer and 18 gauge PC. I took the 18 guage because I thought it might not drive the 2 inch ...
