I BADMOUTHED THE WRONG COMPRESSOR

I BADMOUTHED THE WRONG COMPRESSOR

2243 days ago by jockmike2 | 21 comments »

A while back I gave a negative review to this 2-in-1 brad / stapler with compressor, here on Lumberjocks. I was recently contacted by the “Director of Product Developement at Stanely Bostich.” I Quote, ” Your post regarding your frustrating experience with our compressor just came across my desk. First, I would like to apologize for the inconvience and frustration this problem caused you. For a short period of time, the valve plate was out of our specification which could le...

Rikon Drill Press and Orion Mortising Attachment

Rikon Drill Press and Orion Mortising Attachment

2243 days ago by shaun | 11 comments »

I went to the March Madness sale at Woodcraft today and came home with a new benchtop drill press and I grabbed up an Orion mortising attachment while I was there. I caught the eary bird part of the sale so I got an additional 5% off. The drill press retails at Woodcraft for $249.99. For the eary bird deal they take the additional 5% off after they apply the 10% discount so it ended up costing me about $214 before sales tax. It’s a 13” drill press with a 1/2 hp motor. Prett...

Rockler Power Air Respirator

Rockler Power Air Respirator

2243 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 36 comments »

I wanted a respirator that I could wear all by itself. I didn’t want to contend with any head gear. I have used regular dust masks over the years, but after wearing them for awhile, it takes a lot more effort to breath.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After seeing this one in Rockler I ordered one.It’s surprising how that little built in fan helps in your breathing, & it keeps your face cool. The fan is very quiet, & it runs on 4 AA batte...

Sharpen your mortise chisels

Sharpen your mortise chisels

2243 days ago by Karson | 15 comments »

Rockler and others have this tool to sharpen your mortise chisels. Trust me they don’t come sharpl Lee Vally has just the sharpening cones for $7.95 a better buy than Rockler. It’s a cone with diamond sharpening grits on the edge. The picture doesn’t show but it does come with 2 grit sizes, course and fine. I placed the diamond cone in my drill press and lightly brought it into the inside of the mortise chisel Ligntly do that until you get all edges of the chisel sharp...

The classic Unisaw

The classic Unisaw

2244 days ago by GaryK | 13 comments »

After using a Delta contractor saw for about 9 years I finally moved to my new shop with the roomfor a full size saw. I bought this saw while my shop was being built. Amazon had mis-priced this saw so I jumped on it and got it for $1340 delivered. Plus a $100 rebate from Delta. The next day Amazon bumped the price up to $1900. What can you saw about the Unisaw. They started making them about 1937 and most all saws made todayare based on it. You can probably still get parts for your 60 y...

Auriou Cabinet Files

Auriou Cabinet Files

2244 days ago by mjon | 4 comments »

If it’s possible to get excited about a simple and ancient tool, these little handmade French cabinet files have me giddy. Generally, files are nothing to get too thrilled about—but the quality of these files is exceptional from the moment you pick one up. The balance is remarkable and the handle is smaller than any I’ve ever used. As a result, they fit in your hand comfortably. When I say the files are handmade, that is to say they are actually hand-punched. They have ...

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

2244 days ago by Splinters | 9 comments »

I have always liked Craftsman brand tools..so when it came time to look for a table saw that is where I went. I caught this saw on sale and was able to spread the payments interest free over a year. Sale price was around $950. It lists for around $1100. The only thing I have added to it is a movable base. It is a very solid machine and took four guys to unload it from the trailer. It is a very strong smooth running saw. It came with a Biesemeyer fence system, which is a real gem. Nice h...

work smarter not harder

work smarter not harder

2244 days ago by Partridge | 6 comments »

Hello, Lumber JocksNot real sure how to format a tool review, but here I go.RYOBI 18v Impact DriverI needed a tool to screw in a lot of 1 5/8 dry wall screws. The job was the inside of my shop, putting up chipboard (OSB). I started off with a Bosch drill drive and it was working alright but I could see it taking a long time, besides it was starting to work my wrist and arms when pushing up tight on the screw to get it in place or to keep it from stripping. That’s not Bosch’s fault, that’s...

Power Carving - No Chisels required.

Power Carving - No Chisels required.

2244 days ago by Karson | 10 comments »

When I was asked to make a frame for Mark’s Memorial I wanted to do an inlay and I bought a router base that is used in the string instrument industry. It uses a Dremel of a Fordem as the power source. I select the Foredom option. That required the purchase of another new tool. So thats not all bad. I bought the #5200 model It contains two hand pieces, but neither of them would fit on the router base i selected, so I had to purchase a hand piece that fit the router base. The Route...
