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!

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 ...

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

10-24-2008 01:43 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I reviewed Hendrik’s DVD (Jointer and Planer Secrets) a while ago and was very pleased with it. When Hendrik came out with a new DVD on Table Saws, I was very interested in getting. At first the price of $94.95 CDN, might seem a little high, but what you get makes it worth every penny. I really wish I had this DVD when I bought my first table saw! This is a 5 DVD set and it has almost 10 hours footage. As with his Jointer DVD set, Hendrik always focuses on safe operation of the t...

What a fantastic saw

What a fantastic saw

10-20-2008 02:35 AM by sry | 14 comments »

Overall impressionsI only wanted to buy a jigsaw once, so I bought the best I could afford the first time. This was it. $160 at the CPO Bosch website when I bought it a few months ago. I think it’s down to $145 at amazon now. I’ve been using the saw for a few months now, and have to say that I’m very glad I bought this rather than some of the others I’ve looked at. This saw seems to have power to spare in every task I’ve thrown at it, up to and including 2&#...

MLCS Horizontal Router Table

MLCS Horizontal Router Table

10-16-2008 08:45 PM by Toolz | 11 comments »

I was having trouble routing wide panels standing on edge on my router table. I made a jig to stand panels on edge for trimming solid edge moldings on plywood but was unhappy with the results. After reading reviews http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/review1.htm#Horizonal_Tab_anchor and watching the short video http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/horizontal_router_table.html I ordered the table and mounted a Craftsman Model 3...
