Fully Automatic Weapon

So, this guy comes to the office to help one of the girls get into a cabinet that had a lost key. I heard all kinds of racket going on over there and thought I better sniff around. It’s a good thing I did because look what I saw. This is a drill with a 36 Volt Battery, two lights with 12 LEDs each, and a shoulder strap. The shoulder strap wasn’t just to help handle the weight, which I estimate at 5lbs, it was also to help with the torque. When you pull the trigger on this thi...

K-body clamp extenders

K-body clamp extenders

11-03-2008 07:09 PM by dsb1829 | 7 comments »

I picked up a set of the K-body clamp extenders a couple months back from Woodcraft. I had a table project coming up and knew that clamping the long aprons would require clamps in excess of the 50 inchers that I had. I was initially impressed by the solid construction of these. Honestly I think you would get back near half of the price in scrap value on the billet. The bolts are massive. The extrusion is formed to match the contours of the steel rails of the K-body clamps. Well last n...

Lee Valley Brad Point Bits - Set of Seven

Lee Valley Brad Point Bits - Set of Seven

11-02-2008 07:03 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 7 comments »

I was in need of some brad point bits to drill holes for a set of ball catches I am installing. I have been using regular twist bits and needed something with a centering guide. My set of Irwin Jennings-pattern auger bits don’t go to 1/4”. I looked at brad point bits at the Borg and didn’t like any of the ones I saw. The lip was simply a point ground into the edge of the radial cutter. It didn’t look like it would leave a clean hole on entry and that is what I am ...

Protect Your Ears

Protect Your Ears

10-31-2008 02:26 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 10 comments »

Recently one my posts came up where I talked about ZEM hearing protection. At the time I was amazing at how well they worked. It’s been over a year now of using them, and I won’t use anything else now. They are very comfortable to wear, for long periods if needed. They are lightweight and don’t have to go “deep” into the ear canal. The foam earpieces just enter the outside of the ear canal. They really don’t feel like they are in your ear, like other earplugs. I’m not sure if I can r...

solid digital gauge which requires user modification to properly function!

10-28-2008 08:15 AM by Michael Hacker | 5 comments »

i was in the market for a miter gauge and found myself looking at this beauty in a recent email from Hartville Tool. i decided to give it a go and happily sent off my $59.99 + S&H and awaited its arrival. shortly the package arrived and upon initial inspection i was very happy, the gauge looked well made, hefty, and simple, exactly what i was expecting! then i decided to assemble it… and that is where the problems began! the handle wouldn’t thread into the guide rail sec...

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

10-27-2008 05:28 PM by Texasgaloot | 12 comments »

Anyone who has ever seen the movie “A Christmas Story” knows the elation of discovering that you had won a major prize. I have not had a new tool infiltrate my shop in a very long time. It would be even longer had I not won this plane from the Wood Talk Online podcast—thanks Marc and Matt. See, folks, if you aren’t listening to this podcast, YOU SHOULD BE! Even a guy who never wins a thing can win something over-the-top cool! Okay: on to the plane (thank God it ...

The Woodwright's Guide: Working Wood With Wedge & Edge

The Woodwright's Guide: Working Wood With Wedge & Edge

10-26-2008 06:02 PM by Texasgaloot | 11 comments »

Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2008. “It’s just a piece of wood, but let’s see what your axe handle has to say.” (p.4) From the opening sentence of St. Roy’s latest tome exudes the essence of Underhill, both myth and man. As a young boy, my grandfather had me chopping wood for my breakfast, and the only thing I remember my axe handle saying were words not fit to use here, but when Roy visits an axe handle, it suddenly springs to lively disc...

Forgotten Hand Tools - DVD Review

Forgotten Hand Tools - DVD Review

10-25-2008 04:55 PM by Oscar | 2 comments »

This is a great DVD, although the title is, in my opinion, a little misleading. I would instead title this work, Forgotten Hand Tool Skills and Techniques. In this DVD, Schwarz focuses on three skills/techniques: (1) gimlets, hammers, and nails (i.e., using the correct type of nails as fasteners); (2) drawboring; and (3) handsawing (and using a shooting board). Schwarz discusses the history of each skill/technique and then explains the relevance of these skills/techniques to modern woodw...

A great router fence

A great router fence

10-25-2008 12:02 AM by Steven Naslund | 0 comments »

After messing around with a lot of home-made fence systems for my router table, I decided that for my newest table I would buy a fence and spend more time building furniture and less time building the shop. The fence is built incredibly well as has been my experience with all the Jess-Em products I have purchased. Positives - Fence stays centered on the table when sliding back and forth Spilt sliding fence allows for very large router bits Comes with jointing shims to bring half ...
