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

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...

Thinking about a thumpin' slab?  This is your book!

Thinking about a thumpin' slab? This is your book!

07-24-2008 03:40 AM by BikerDad | 12 comments »

I picked up this book recently after stumbling across a mention, then a review, then a bunch of raves. I chose to purchase the book directly from Lost Art Press, getting the Deluxe Edition (w/ CD). Their website didn’t want to have anything to do with my credit card, but that simply meant I had to deal directly with a real live and very courteous individual. The verdict on the purchasing experience: the folks at Lost Art Press are a pleasure to deal with. But, you may be wondering...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

07-23-2008 09:35 PM by Tim_456 | 9 comments »

My review is of Oneida’s Dust Deputy. http://www.dustdeputy.com/ I’ve had this addition to my shop vac for a little over a year and it is performing very well. Order/Assembly:I ordered mine online directly from Oneida and it came, unassembled, in a very short amount of time. Ordering was fast and easy. Assembly was quick but did involve silicon sealant. This is placed between the lower canister and the upper cone to create an air tight seal between the parts. It took about 15 min...

Non-slip router mat - Sometimes little things make a difference

Non-slip router mat - Sometimes little things make a difference

07-23-2008 07:07 AM by Llarian | 11 comments »

I have to admit, I feel a little silly writing a review for what’s basically a heavy duty carpet pad. However, as a new woodworker who doesn’t have luxurys like a workbench with a tail vice and bench dogs, sometimes the little things can make a huge difference. Using a router is a little difficult if your workpiece keeps sliding around, not to mention dangerous. This thing really solves the problem. Throw it on top of your tablesaw, put your workpiece on top of it, and go to...

Over the years, when I have looked at a “framing square”, I have been put in mind of going to the beach and seeing a guy wearing a tiny, lime green Speedo. The connection may not seem apparent at first, but as to the inadequately clothed male, I shake my head and think, “There are 11 men in America who might qualify to look right in that miniscule patch of lycra or spandex . . . . unfortunately, he is not one of them.” When I have looked at a framing square with al...

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

07-22-2008 04:07 PM by Timber4fun | 4 comments »

Introduction – I have a small Porter-Cable air compressor and finish nailer. If you are like me, it doesn’t take long to get tired of hauling the air compressor, nailer, hose, nails, oil, and everything else that goes along with finish nailing, even when the compressor is small. Don’t get me wrong, I like my air compressor very much. However, it can be very inconvenient when you need to fire off just a few nails. In many similar cases, I’ll look for a workaround rather than haul out all m...

Green and Yellow Sucker

Since I had some encounters with turning and sanding toxic woods earlier this year I’ve been saving up for a dust collector. I turn wood on a Jet 1220 and don’t generate a ton of sawdust or sanding dust but enough to be a nuisance. The shop vac can’t keep up and is quiet noisy. I have experience with some 1.5hp Jet and Delta models but they were very bigger and noisier than I was looking for. Amazon currently has Delta AP-400’s on sale for $138 shipped but I would b...

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

07-20-2008 07:30 AM by toolman | 4 comments »

As a woodworker, you need to produce a nice surface for a variety of reasons. Knowing this, we decided to test an orbital sander for this power tool review. We found a Dewalt Random Orbital Sander on sale as a factory reconditioned tool, so we thought we would give this a test. Our first impression was good. If you have been following our other reviews you know we love carrying cases, and the Dewalt random orbital sander has its own case. There is even room to pack some sand discs, alo...
