cordless brad nailer

06-02-2010 05:46 PM by gardentiger | 5 comments »

Never owned a nailer before but I gotta say that this is a winner. It comes w/ a pack of nails in all sizes. I bought this particular one off of fleabay for $60 and $15 shipping. Having already bought a few of the 18v products, I did not need a battery. This would explain the somewhat low cost. The gun feels good in your hand, but has maybe a slight delay upon triggering(I adapted easily to that). After I bought the nailer I went to Amazon to read the reviews. There are some bad review...

A great glue which I have tested to the limit.

A great glue which I have tested to the limit.

After watching Scott Phillips on tv I got increasingly interested In this Gorilla glue. I picked up a small bottle and tryed on the first project I could. It was a box with I actualy sold so I never got to post It on here. It was made with curly maple. So a fairly standard wood.I spread A healthy amount on each miter and brushed it out. I made this box with no splines because I wanted to put this glue to the test. And boy did I.First the day after glue up I was outside brushing lacquer onto i...

Simple, Precise, Affordable

Simple, Precise, Affordable

06-02-2010 03:11 AM by hazbro | 8 comments »

There have been several posts/threads lately about mortisers, jointers (biscuit and domino) and assorted jigs, so I thought I would add my two cents along with a review + pics in action. This is the beadlock pro system, not to be confused with the inferior cousin that is essentially a drill block. It is all aluminum & steel construction, heavy duty, and highly adjustable. What you see in the pictures is the bottom rail of a walnut headboard having been drilled out for the stiles. Al...

CHARLES NEILS IT'S ALL ABOUT COLOR  DVDs

CHARLES NEILS IT'S ALL ABOUT COLOR DVDs

06-02-2010 12:18 AM by a1Jim | 23 comments »

My long awaited DVD set, Charles Neil’s,” It’s All About The Color”, that I ordered a while back, came today. I’m suppose to be in the shop right now, but thought I would watch just one of the 6 DVDs . It didnt work out that way… I’m watching #3 right now. What’s it about? It covers waterbase finishes and how to get the color you want from each one. One DVD for 6 of the main woods: cherry,oaks,maples,walnut,poplar and mahogany. It’s great...

Craftsman 10” Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 - Alignment

Craftsman 10” Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 - Alignment

06-01-2010 09:38 PM by smitty22 | 63 comments »

Previous review by Bobthebuilderinmichigan and good info from BoardRunner are here:http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/1225After a few months and a couple of projects with this saw, here are some observations ;In short, the 351-218330 seems a very good table saw for the price, with most everything I needed included. The rip fence is very good for a saw in this price class, and with a good after-market miter gauge (I caught the Incra 120 on sale) and an upgraded blade, performance is very good. ...

Great mid range dust collecter.

Great mid range dust collecter.

06-01-2010 06:55 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 7 comments »

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw (ICS31230: 3 hp, 1 phase, 230 V, 13 A)

SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw (ICS31230: 3 hp, 1 phase, 230 V, 13 A)

06-01-2010 02:46 AM by stevenmadden | 54 comments »

I purchased this table saw in early April 2010 and it arrived in early-mid May 2010. The delay, I found out later, was due to the fact that SawStop was making a transition to the new, upgraded industrial cabinet saw. Anyway, when the saw arrived, I was pleased to find out that SawStop had upgraded me to the new dust collection shroud, blade guard, and lock down throat plate for free. There have been several very detailed reviews of the SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw here at LumberJocks, ...

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

06-01-2010 12:59 AM by rhett | 8 comments »

This is a fine set of bits. The quality, workmanship and finish of all my Amana bits has been flawless. Therefore this is not a bad mark about Amana router bits, they are the best you can buy in my opinion. This is however a review of the actual need to have a set of bits like these. I bought this set due to the fact that I have a kitchen on the floor with seven 45 degree corners. Building faceframe cabinets, this equates to 28 faceframe stiles needing a 22.5 degree angle. I assumed t...

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

05-31-2010 02:59 AM by Chris | 18 comments »

We purchased the TS 75 Plunge Saw a few months ago after another regular circular saw fried on me again. I am not a contractor or a woodworking professional; but, I do expect things to work for more than a couple of years. I chose the TS 75 after being fortunate enough to use a friends TS 55 to rough out the pieces for a couple of book cases. Power:The 75 has plenty of power to cut my sheet goods and rough lumber to usable dimensions with lots to spare. Accuracy:With the included tra...
