Ready Strip

Ready Strip

2324 days ago by scottb | 4 comments »

To paraphrase from their website, Ready Strip is biodegradable, safe to touch, virtually odorless, fast, and easy. It clings to vertical surfaces. Ready-Strip™ removes most varieties of paints and varnishes which are oil or water-based including latex, stains, oil based paints, and polyurethanes. It can be applied on a multitude of interior and exterior surfaces including wood, brick, plaster, metal, marble, masonry, concrete and fiberglass. Ready Strip is environmentally safe and contain no ...

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

2324 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 19 comments »

Recently purchased the DeWalt model 735 13 inch two speed planer and stand. Right out of the box the planer had very few parts to assemble. The instructions were very easy to understand. I had to make a few minor adjustments in the height adjustment scale, but the preset stops were right on the money. Gave the planer a real test with some cedar boards that were up to 10 inches in width and the machine did great. I planed them down close to 3/4 inch thick and then switched to the slower ...

Craftsman 12" Bandsaw

Craftsman 12" Bandsaw

2324 days ago by DennisC | 16 comments »

This is everything you could expect from 12” saw. It is manufactured by the same factory that makes Rikon saws. It has good power, 3/4 horse; capacity, 7”; and can be adjusted to cut pretty straight. The guides work nice and can be adjusted up tight. The factory fence is junk. I built one to use with the factory front rail and it works just fine. I’m using a 1/2” 3 tooth blade and have my fence set for about 1/8” drift from front to back.The trunion can be adju...

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

2324 days ago by Hawgnutz | 6 comments »

this glue bottle has a brush hidden inside with an adjustable metal stem. The stem can be adjusted for different levels to keep the brush at the level of teh glue in the bottle by screwing a set screw on top. The brush helps spread the glue on wood with even strokes. This is a great glue bottle at a very reasonable price! God Bless,Hawg

Very Nice - Very Small Bench Plane

Very Nice - Very Small Bench Plane

2324 days ago by RickH | 2 comments »

I picked up this Lie-Nielsen #1 bench plane several weeks ago at Woodcraft on sale, intrigued by it’s small size and quality. It is the first Lie-Nielsen plane I own (though I have a number of Veritas) and as you would expect from either of these brands it is extremely well made. With it’s brass body and maple handles it is almost too nice to use as a tool – it looks that nice. It is based on the famous Stanley No. 1, 5½” (14cm) long with a 1-3/16” (3cm) x ....

Darn good product

Darn good product

2324 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 10 comments »

This bandsaw is great. It allows me to cut curves, very thin peices, and resaw, and its only $150, thats right only $150. It is a great buy for the money. If your wanting one and you don’t want to spend a fortune for a huge bandsaw, then this is a nice substitute. It has about a 5 inch resaw compacity, which isn’t the best but alot better than the compeditors benchtop models. You would think for $150 it would be a plastic pile of junk, well that is certainly not the case here. The...

Lithium Ion Power Is Here

Lithium Ion Power Is Here

2324 days ago by Thuan | 0 comments »

I did my research on these new Lithium-Ion power screwdrivers for their power to weight ratio. After comparing Bosch, Makita and Metabo, I chose the Metabo Powergrip II. It’s small lithium powered battery can be stored for months without loosing a charge. It’s small 1.6 lb size makes is fits that kitchen drawer even though it is built for tough professional use. The aluminum housing, and rubber grip, gives it s solid feel. At 7.2 volts, the battery is not as powerful as other brands, but ...

Great Economy Scraper!

Great Economy Scraper!

2324 days ago by Hawgnutz | 1 comment »

this scarper is a great economy CARBIDE scraper at half the cost of similarly equiped scrapers. its carbide tips can be flipped over when dull, to save time for sharpening until the job is finished. This scraper works really well to remove pencil and slight burn marks, as well as scraping the oldest paint! This is a versatile scraper! The large handle gives you unbeleivable control in tight spaces, yet lets you reduce pressure when needed. At only $18, normal price, this is a simple ad...

Good stand with innovative features.

Good stand with innovative features.

2324 days ago by kshipp | 1 comment »

This is a very versatile stand for the price. My previous stand was basically a metal tee that tipped easily and had some cheap plastic for rollers. This stand is heavy enough (and has a wide-enough stance) to not tip over but is still easy to store and move. For storage it folds flat and can hang on the wall. The height is adjustable from 27” to 44” and there is a positive stop at the top so you don’t have to worry about lifting it right out of the tube. The locking m...

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

2324 days ago by RickH | 3 comments »

Owned this Veritas Apron plane for several weeks now, and like the other Veritas planes I have I found it to be extremely well made and a joy to use. This is one of the smallest I have in their line up, with only a 1 1/4” wide low angle, bevel up blade iron. It has a 5-1/2” x 1-3/4” ductile cast iron body for durability, and their great combination blade depth and blade angle adjuster. It is very comfortable to hold in your hand, and cuts very nicely. Ready to go rig...
