Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

2317 days ago by mikega | 5 comments »

“If you can’t finish, you can’t build” This is the comment Charles Neil made to me when I first meant him last year. By now many of you know who Charles Neil is and that he is on a mission to teach other woodworkers what he has learned from over 30 years as a professional woodworker. His latest DVD set that he just released is called Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books.As you can see from the picture above this a 10 DVD set. There is about 15 hours of information on ...

Earlex Spray Station 5000

Earlex Spray Station 5000

2317 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 43 comments »

To sum up, I thought the Earlex did a darn good job spraying pretty much everything I put in it, including oil-based poly, water-based finishes, lacquer, and latex paint. I would probably recommend purchasing some of the smaller tip sets though, since they will increase performance on the water-based stuff. The 5000 does lack some of the spray controls typically found in higher-priced 3 and 4-stage units, but sometimes those extra features are just unnecessary. I found the simplicity of the u...

Enlightening

Enlightening

2318 days ago by DannyBoy | 8 comments »

I just got this book in the mail yesterday after I had found it on amazon while looking for another book. I was able to read the introduction before I ordered and I was already impressed. Sam Sherrill takes an ecological, economic, and just common sense approach to addressing the waste that our society generates by not treating felled trees of our urban forests as assets or inventory but as waste to be thrown away. I haven’t completed reading the book cover to cover yet, (I’m...

Never drive screws with drill again

Never drive screws with drill again

2318 days ago by DGunn | 12 comments »

I recently bought the Makita 18 volt drill. I wish I would have bought the kit that included the impact. I have never owned an impact before, but have heard good things. I actually ordered this on ebay as a bare tool only. I came in brand new condition. I was anxious to try it out. I put a battery on it and started to drive some screws into some scrap. I was amazed. My drill works well with a screw guide, but this was effertless. There was absolutely no twist when I drove the screws like w...

Steel City 6" Industrial Parallelogram Jointer

Steel City 6" Industrial Parallelogram Jointer

2319 days ago by Greg3G | 16 comments »

I purchased this at the March Woodworking Show in Chantilly, VA. I had been looking for a jointer for some time. At one point this was listed for $999 but since they have decided to drop this from their line, I picked it up for $499 with an extra set of knives thrown in the deal. The equipment was picked up at the show (Skarie was the distributer) and came in two boxes. One is the cabinet the other the jointer bed assembly. The boxes showed no damage so I felt fairly certain that everythin...

Initial Review for Rigid R4151

Initial Review for Rigid R4151

2322 days ago by steve3604 | 15 comments »

Been shopping for Miter Saws since last fall, read the reviews, searched the web, yada yada, 20% off sale on rigid tools at Home Depot so went and checked it out. I currently have some Rigid tools, (TS3650 table saw totally love it, TP1300 2 blade planer love it, floor model drill press don’t love it but its decent), looked at sliders, and non-sliders 10 and 12 inch, they even had some factory refurb 12” sliders for 349.00. I eventually went with the new R4151 and here’s wha...

Music to my ears...

Music to my ears...

2322 days ago by RobH | 12 comments »

I thought I would post this because I am as happy as a pig in mud when I am using these things. They perform wonderfully. I like ear muffs better than in-ear style hearing protection. Before I bought these I used a pair of ear muffs with ear bud headphones to listen to my MP3 player. Since my MP3 player has no AM/FM radio option, I often missed that. Well, as always happens, one of the boys got their hand on my old headphones and broke them. When I went to pick up more, I saw these....

Great little product

Great little product

2322 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 5 comments »

This is the jig saw that I got about three years ago. It is a great little saw, and cuts like you wouldn’t belive. There is a few things that I love about this saw, first, the fact that it has dust collection is a big plus in my book. There is a little shroud, if I am saying that correctly that captures a decent amount of dust, and there is a blower on the other side to push it to the shroud. Another cool feature is the quick disconect blade thingy. It is really simple ot change from a ...

Good for the price-that's it

Good for the price-that's it

2322 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 6 comments »

Here are the bits that I bought about three months ago for some up and coming projects. I like these bits becasue they came in a huge set, I belive 16, and it was only $25. They make flat bottomed holes, angled holes, and are just very nice. They do have there downside tough. They are very hard to use if not useing in a drill press, they tend to not want to start if your useing a drill. Some of them also have a slight wobble which is not so great, but most of them are perfect. They also tend ...
