Gorilla Tape

Gorilla Tape

09-28-2008 05:53 AM by Dan'um Style | 10 comments »

I won a 2nd prize in Gorilla Glue Challenge. Winners received Gorilla Glue’s products and a Gorilla Glue t-shirt. Got a nice box of various Gorilla glues and a roll of tape. I’ve been using Gorilla Glue products for years, so it was a excellent prize. Peggy enjoys wearing the Gorilla tee-shirt too. Today I used the tape and want to share a handy use for them. My tile KILN needed an element changed . Kiln sits on the concrete floor of my back porch, It is a front loading ki...

Tormek T7 Sharpening System

Tormek T7 Sharpening System

09-23-2008 05:25 PM by coloradoclimber | 17 comments »

Well, it was sharpening time again this weekend, chisels, plane irons, kitchen knives, pocket knives, scissors, turning gouges and chisels, anything else I could find that had an edge that needed sharpening. I’ve hand sharpened all of my knives and tools using wet, dry, oil, and diamond stones for the last 20 years. Bench stones works pretty well and I’m able to get shaving quality edges every time. So why change? Well, because hand sharpening takes a long time. I keep ad...

My prize, Summer 2008 Contest

My prize, Summer 2008 Contest

09-17-2008 10:26 PM by Karson | 13 comments »

I won 2nd place in the LumberJock 2008 One Man’s Junk Contest. I won a Jack Rabbit Deluxe bit driver set. It arrived today and it looks great. It came in a blister pack package and it contained 4 drill bit sizes 7/64, 1/8, 9/64 and 3/32 drill bits. The countersink is 3/8 in the three lower sizes and 1/2 in the larger drill bit. It has a brass covered magnet that is quite strong. It held the wrench that is used to screw in the drill countersink assembly. The drill assembl...

CMT 8" Dado Set

CMT 8" Dado Set

09-16-2008 10:46 PM by RWR | 17 comments »

I purchased this dado set to help build a free standing router station. Had to make many dado’s and rabbets. I knew my old Sear’s steel set was not up to the task, especially on expensive cabinet grade birch plywood. So after reviewing several sets and finding this set on sale at Amazon it was a no brainer forme. This set gives very flat bottoms and zero chipout on the 3/4” and 1/2” plywood that I was using. It alsohas the 1/16” and 3/32” chippers to co...

Pruner May be Only Chainsaw You Need

Pruner May be Only Chainsaw You Need

09-16-2008 08:26 PM by Ick | 9 comments »

I’ve been an owner of a Stihl 16” chainsaw for years. I have 50 acres that has substantial amount of Blackjack Oaks. These trees typically stay until 14” in diameter at the base, so the 16” bar has always been more than enough. A couple of years ago, my wife treated me to a new Stihl Pruner. I’ve been so impressed with this tool that my old standard chainsaw rarely gets used. Whereas I thought the pruner would be a specialty saw, I find myself reaching for...

Bosch Table Saw

Bosch Table Saw

09-16-2008 03:34 AM by Tony Z | 26 comments »

This saw is great. I needed a portable saw that was accurate and this fit the bill. All I can say is BUY THIS SAW if you are in the market for something portable. It has everything you want in a table saw. Dust collection is good with a shop vac and I like that the miter gauge is full size and not a ‘mini’ one that come with most portable saws. The fence is aluminum with built in T-track which is very nice. It’s quiet and has a soft-start. I was especially impressed with t...

Simpson StrongTies

Simpson StrongTies

09-12-2008 04:10 AM by Tim_456 | 9 comments »

This isn’t really a woodworking tool however I’ve never seem them referenced in any magazines or online so I thought I’d toss it up here. If you’re not familiar with these go to your local big box store. Simpson Strongties are metal connectors in various shapes. Mainly used in the building trades a few of these connectors can be used to make shelves and even workbenches. Anyway, they’re a bit pricey but they make a quick work of building shelves and benches...

May be awesome in the table but there are two things it lacks as a plunge router

09-09-2008 07:04 PM by spaids | 17 comments »

I am a new woodworker so everything I do is a new learning experience. This Triton is my first plunge router. It comes with a lot of accessories and its already a good price even with out the extras. It has some cool features like a selectable rack and pinion height adjustment for quick large increment hight changes. It comes with a handle for through the table height changes. It comes with a circle cutting jig and edge guide and a full set of bushing inserts. As a table router I imagin...

Nice Saw

Nice Saw

09-09-2008 04:23 PM by SPalm | 27 comments »

I bought a Steel City 35670 tablesaw a couple of weeks ago and have been able to play with it some. Here are a few of my thoughts. PackagingI picked up the saw at Woodcraft in a small pickup truck. They loaded with a forklift as it is over 400 pounds. There were also a couple of other boxes that contained the fence. When I got it home, four people where able to slide it back and lower it to the ground. I then took off the cardboard and the found a square channel welded steel frame ins...
