Drill Press Planer

Drill Press Planer

08-09-2008 04:08 PM by dmann | 11 comments »

As much as I’de love an excuse to get another piece of equipment for the shop I don’t use a planer enough to justify the expense or space. I saw this Drill Press Planer at the Woodworker’s Supply and figured for the price I would give it a shot. I was able to plane my first pieces of wood this week. I was preparing a section of a 3×3x9 block of maple to create a laminated bowl blank. The Planer worked well for my purposes. I secured the planer in the chuck and adj...

Just Get This One

Just Get This One

08-07-2008 09:20 PM by Iffy | 16 comments »

When I first got my Grizzly bandsaw, I was pretty disappointed with the results with the blade provided. I always knew I needed to get a better one and I was hesitant to use the tool because the experience wasn’t very nice. For an upcoming project, I decided now was the time to get a new blade. I checked the reviews here on lumberjocks and finewoodworking.com and decided to get this blade. It arrived today and after spending a few minutes getting it installed I was ready for a test c...

The Clifton Multiplane

The Clifton Multiplane

07-31-2008 09:36 PM by lethentymill | 5 comments »

A new Multiplane is quite an investment – when I started this series of projects five years ago I was still under the spell of this tool and Stanley still had a couple of cheaper alternatives which could be recommended for grooving and cutting dados.Five years on (running evening classes and producing the home learning course), how do I feel about them? The only successor to the Stanley/Record models that I knew was the Clifton – I have three old Stanleys and had one new Clifton; it was th...

Steel City 1HP dust collector

Steel City 1HP dust collector

07-30-2008 01:03 AM by kaferhaus | 8 comments »

Just bought this yesterday at the local Woodcraft (good folks here) With the exception of the the four bolts that hold the blower assy to the frame, assembly was rather uneventful. After assembly I immediately put the collector to use attached to my table saw and it seemed to work “ok”, not great. Even though I was using a zero clearance insert, a good amount of dust managed to escape from every nook and cranny from the cabinet. The collection only seems to be marginally b...

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

07-29-2008 05:46 AM by Tim Dorcas | 14 comments »

In the past one of the things I hated to was rip thin pieces of wood. Typically this is done to create keys for mitered joints. Last December I was going to build a one of the many jigs that you can find online when Rockler came out with their Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig. For $20 I thought, “Why not?” It arrived about three weeks later (They were sold old initially and everything takes longer in Canada.) and I was surprised at the quality of it’s construction. If anything the fit ...

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

07-28-2008 04:08 AM by Sawdust2 | 10 comments »

Saturday morning I was lying in bed and on the TV was the lovely Jodi Marks touting the MultiMaster. Now, it’s difficult not to do what Jody says, she being all wonderful and woodworky. And my wife had already decided that we (I) were (was) going to refinish the kitchen table (as opposed to the dining room table). You can see it in the photo. This top is veneered out of some unidentified wood that looks like a cross between birch, maple and European Beech. But the edging was shaped w...

Dixon Ticonderoga #2 HB Pencil

Dixon Ticonderoga #2 HB Pencil

Ok…I know your thinking this is a joke…but I assure you , my friends I am serious as a heart attack! Pencils these days are a sad conglomeration of strange MDF like material that feels more like rubber, and breaks easily when you try to sharpen it. Same with the leads…if your lucky enough to get a point on it after grinding down half the “pencil” in the sharpener it will break as soon as you put any pressure on it. Not at the tip…down low under the fake woo...

You can make your SketchUp model dance

You can make your SketchUp model dance

07-25-2008 05:47 AM by kshipp | 8 comments »

I just got this a few days ago and I love it already. That being said I should probably start with a description before I get questions about how many horsepower this router has or why the sander has a blue light on it. This is a navigation device that is used for 3D graphics programs. I have seen people at work use similar devices but they actually do CAD for a living. I only do SketchUp for fun but this device is amazing. When you move the knob it is exactly like you are moving the objec...

Accuracy out of the box

Accuracy out of the box

07-24-2008 05:54 PM by Michael Brailsford | 11 comments »

I have owned a Rockwell Unisaw for 4 years now. I bought it used from the US Army. It had the original fence on it. It was a constant job to keep it aligned and semi accurate. I recently was able to purchase the Delta 36-U30 Unifence. I took only about an hour to assemble it. It was amazing after I was done to do my first test cut. I set the curser at 6” and made my cut and low and behold it came out to six inches. Coming from what I just had all I could say was WOW! With my o...
