If you were only going to own one sander, this is it!

06-21-2008 02:19 AM by Chris | 14 comments »

Over the last couple of months both my palm sander and ROS have bit the dust; of course they were about 8 or nine years old. I received this as a fathers day gift and boy am I glad I did. I decided to try out the claims I’ve heard regarding the efficient dust collection and life of the paper, not to mention the speed that it smooths a rough surface. A couple of months back I picked up a Big Leaf Maple slab and had done nothing with it; You can see the rough saw marks in the first pi...

Awesome! a solid performer after 20 years!

Awesome! a solid performer after 20 years!

I know, I know, Its not a true D4R that i have but its the exact same thing except for some improvements in the new D4R which i will mention. like i said the D4R is a solid performer. it takes a while to set up but once you are set up you can consistently and accurately cut as many dovetails as you want. and once you get some experience under your belt set up is a breeze. i love the adjustability so you can have almost any configuration you want and its great to have the whole 24” so yo...

I’m really sort of an old tools kind of guy, and therefore I’m never very enthusiastic when the time comes to use a poly finish. As a matter of fact, I lurk on another list where we refer to this stuff polyurinate. I’ll use shellac or French Polish in a heartbeat. Now, I’ve used the Minwax poly by the gallon for past projects, and I first picked up a quart of the Minwax water based poly from the big blue bigbox store in order to finish out a client’s library t...

I was smitten with this little baby the first minute using it. I have gone thru three finish sanders; a cheapy from Harbor Freight, a Porter Cable, and most recently, a Craftsman, after only about a year. My wife said, “Why don’t you buy the best one, since you do so much sanding?” – which made sense. So, I did some research, including a recent FWW article, and decided on this Bosch. I paid about $70 at Lowe’s. As I said, right after starting ‘er up, ...

A test of my patience leads to a very satisfying outcome.

I know this is already listed under the tablesaw reviews but the previous ‘review’ wasn’t really a review. I’ll do my best to give you my thoughts on this. This review is from a perspective of ‘once the machine is put together’. Complaints are at the end. Power – SUPERB! Everything just melts as it goes through this thing (if you know what I mean). I came from a Ridgid TS2400 (I think that was the number). Granted – this isn’t a...

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

06-19-2008 05:03 AM by WayneC | 39 comments »

Originally posted in my blog. I have been looking for a sharpener for a while and came close to coughing up $250 for the Jet clone of the Tormak when the woodworking show was in town last month. I had also seen the Work Sharp on the web. Dan Like had seen one in action and given it his endorsement. There is a video of it on thier web site if your interested in seeing it in action. Wood Magazine has a review of it as well as a video of it in action. On the worksharp web site there is a ...

another great DVD

another great DVD

06-19-2008 12:07 AM by teenagewoodworker | 3 comments »

Another great DVD. this sugar chest DVD is jam packed with so much woodworking knowledge on the sugar chest that Charles Neil is passing on to us. It is a 4 DVD set and goes through every little detail. the good the bad and the ugly. it goes through everything from lumber selection, to milling, construction, and the finished product. As i stated earlier this DVD does really show the good, bad, and ugly. as Charles always says he’s going to show everything and even on a couple of small m...

i just got my new worktunes headphones and i have got to say that i love them. they are wonderful to use. the ones that i got have just an am/fm radio but you can also get ones to hook up to your ipod. the radio ones cost 50 and i think the ipod ones are around 80 or 90. they are very heavy duty and seem like they will last a lot longer than the other pairs that i have got before. they are nice to have when using the table saw and the miter saw but where they really shines is while ripping a ...

5 Stars for the Application! -1 for limitations when it comes to fine work

5 Stars for the Application! -1 for limitations when it comes to fine work

06-16-2008 04:15 AM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I definitely give this one 5 stars, but this is specific of the application – it being portable. If I was comparing it with other Hybrid saws, than this one doesn’t really compare when it comes to power. That being said. I was shopping for a table saw, after many years of working with a circular saw, and a straight edge – for me – it was time to get a setup for repetitive cuts that would be easier, and less time consuming (not to mention more precise, as the machine...

Expected more, but They are good enough.

I got the MHG 6 Bench Chisels set. For the market price of $110 I expected these to be of somewhat higher quality than the “big store” economy sets. The FeelThey actually feel lighter then the (english) rubber handle Marples I have, and the blade seems slightly thinner. other then that, they do feel very comfortable to hold, and work with. the handle is round, but flattened out on both sides, which keeps it from rolling around the workbench, and falling off the floor… ...
