The good and bad. . .

2245 days ago by USCJeff | 16 comments »

I have not been giving much praise to HF tools that have a motor or battery in the past. There are the occasional decent values though (The Dust Collecter is nice for a small setting, for example). This router has a ton of negatives. The adjustments are sloppy and the collet seems less secure than a Dewalt and Bosch router that I use as well. The attacthments such as the edge guide, aren’t very precise either. That said, I still am glad I purchased it. I got it for under $20. I o...

Better Bond Super Soft 2 Veneer Softener and Heat-Lock Veneer Glue

Better Bond Super Soft 2 Veneer Softener and Heat-Lock Veneer Glue

2246 days ago by Greg Wurst | 1 comment »

I bought some veneer a while back at a wood show, but had never tried veneering before (other than pre-glued edge banding). So, rather than invest in a vacuum press or any other such equipment I though I’d take a cheaper and hopefully easier route. While perusing http://www.joewoodworker.com I came across two products that looked interesting to me: Heat-Lock Veneer Glue and Super Soft 2 veneer softener. http://www.joewoodworker.com/veneering/iron-on-veneering.htm http://www.joe...

Great Shed

Great Shed

2247 days ago by Zuki | 9 comments »

I know what you are thinking, why is a woodworker building a plastic shed. Three reasons: (1) to build one of the same size would be more expensive and (2) the marketing information says it takes 3 hours to install and (3) 5 year warranty. We have been needing a shed for a while and were eying these at Canadian Tire. When they finally went on sale we went for it. You definitely need either a trailer or pickup to bring this home. I tried to fit it in the back of my SUV but it was too bi...

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

2247 days ago by FloridaUFGator | 27 comments »

I purchased this after seeing it at a woodworking show. Man did it look good. The guy was doing all kinds of stuff with it (including sucking the money out of my wallet). He cut half blinds, through, sliding dovetails, variable spaced, fixed space, etc. I then proceeded to watch Norm do the same thing on the video that was running next to the demo. It was about 1/2hr long and I think I watched it 3-times throughout the day (before I bought it). The great part is that is a $599 retail ma...

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

2248 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 4 comments »

This is a blade I was curious about for a long time and I can tell you that this blade is great. I was originally looking into the 40 tooth version of this because Wood magazine had rated it really great but this one just caught my eye because it has more teeth, better for crosscutting, and it has large gullets every five teeth for sawdust removal. This makes it great. I was worried that my “Under powered saw” couldn’t handle ripping with a 50 tooth blade but this thing has ...

A+ Router

A+ Router

2248 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 8 comments »

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

great combination squares - at a great price

2249 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

these combination squares from Empire are great. they have found a specialy place in my shop also. they are very inexpensive at around 15$ for the 12” square and 7% for the 6” square. they have a lifetime warranty and are guaranteed flat and square to .oo1”. it may not be a Starret or anything but it is a great square for the price. i like the big 12” one but since i got the smaller 6” one i have found myself reaching for that one more often. it feels very nice i...

Great Deal

Great Deal

2250 days ago by DannyBoy | 6 comments »

After being overly frustrated with the Craftsman router that I started out with (which still makes a good router for my router table), I finally broke down and bought this one this last weekend. I intended on picking up the Bosch combo at Lowes, but this one was on sale and I’m price minded to a fault. However, I can’t see how I could have made a better decision. The router is solid. 100%. I’ve not had the luxury of working with a mid-grade router like this before, bu...

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

2253 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I know allot of you have made your own version of a thin strip ripping jig. I fiddled with making one and was in too much of a hurry to get my project going. I looked at this one online and liked the design and it was only $19.99 with free shipping. As usual Rockler shipped it out right away, and it was on my doorstep 4 days after I ordered it. They also accept Paypal now which is really convenient.It comes with simple instructions on the back of the box. The whole device is made out of pheno...

Forrest WoodworkerII  10" 40 T Thin Kerf Saw Blade

Forrest WoodworkerII 10" 40 T Thin Kerf Saw Blade

2253 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 10 comments »

This being my first Forrest blade I wanted to see if they lived up to the hype. I did some research and decided I wanted to go with a thin kerf basically because I was going to be cutting allot of hard maple and my Bosch table saw isn’t the most powerful, and I wanted to try and save material. I decided on this blade and the Forrest website recommended a stiffener. I shopped around and found a great deal on Forrestsawbladesonline.com I got the 10”, 5/8” arbor blade and the 5...
