Accurate, Quick & Easy

03-08-2008 11:45 PM by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 12 comments »

For years, I have had difficulty cutting a straight, perpendicular line with a handsaw. No matter what method I tried, the cut was neither straight nor perpendicular to the stock, most often both. I had got to the point where I would pull out my circsaw, jigsaw, or fire up the table saw for all cuts, a real pain. Then, a couple of months ago, I purchased the Irwin #213104 Dovetail/Detail Saw. I feel pretty certain that I didn’t suddenly develop the talent to saw a straight line, so I mu...

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

03-08-2008 04:32 PM by tenontim | 8 comments »

I use my planer and jointer constantly and I try to keep a sharp set of blades in each one. A couple of years ago I found Global Tooling, http://globaltooling.bizhosting.com/index.html on the internet, and couldn’t believe the prices they got for their blades. I thought that even if they were just throw aways, it would be worth the test run. “Knives are made from T1-High Speed Steel (18% Tungsten steel), 63 Rc hardened and finish ground to super sharp edge. Also offered Carbide ...

Steel City 6" Riser for bandsaw

Steel City 6" Riser for bandsaw

03-07-2008 06:35 PM by GaryK | 19 comments »

Here is the 6” riser kit parts for the bandsaw. The installation is fairly simple.This is a “must have” addition if you plan on doing any resawing. It gives you an additional 6” height for resawing extra wide boards. It works great! It increases the length of blade needed from 93 1/2” to 105”. The same as a Delta Bandsaw. ..First remove one big bolt with w 30mm socket wrench. and set the top half aside...Then install the riser block and the two dow...

Simplicity at Its Best

Simplicity at Its Best

03-06-2008 05:59 AM by itsme_timd | 11 comments »

I saw this gadget at Sawdust2’s and had to have one. I’d been looking for ‘something’ to make large arcs with – compass, oil drum, truck rim – and when I saw this I figured it was the best choice. You can buy it online at Rockler, or Woodcraft – both sell for $19.99. The M.Power Tri.Scribe These are great little items, very versatile. They attach to any flat ruler, square, etc. and can be used to make arcs/circles, straight lines, 2 paral...

radial arm saw

radial arm saw

03-05-2008 08:08 PM by runngt | 43 comments »

I have read a few reviews and topics about how dangerous radial arm saws are and that now days they have out lived their purpose in wood working. This is something I just don’t get as this was the second tool I purchased for my shop (like new, second hand for $250) and has been one of the best tools and one of my favorites since I brought it home. They are like any tool in your shop dangerous and reading the owners manual twice on this tool is a must. They have a tendency to produce kic...

jet mini lathe

jet mini lathe

03-05-2008 06:24 PM by runngt | 13 comments »

This was my first lathe since middle school shop class. Back then I made a lamp for my mother that made it all the way to state finals. I was excited to get this in my shop and start turning on it and after several months it has performed flawlessly!! I have added the bed extension but not used the tool since adding it. The bed is very solid and the extension was easy to install and level. This model has the spindle lock and indexing head and operates at 500 – 3900 rpm. I think it is...

Frustrating... Great customer service!

Frustrating... Great customer service!

03-05-2008 12:45 AM by Davedust | 9 comments »

OK, for starters I’m not much of an internet guy, Id much rather be in the shop. That said I am so disappointed with this saw that it has driven me to this. So, after getting the saw home and starting to put it together I noticed a metal bur along the cast iron extension wings, where it joins with the main saw body. It was about 1/32 – 1/64 high the entire length of both extension wings. Not much of a big deal, was able to take care of it, but I started to think humm… After gettin...

Namazori Chisels

Namazori Chisels

03-04-2008 06:11 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 18 comments »

I’ve been using these chisels, available in 5/8” and 3/4”, for about ten years I guess. I purchased them from Japan Woodworkers website. http://www.japanwoodworker.com These chisels are incredibly useful, but also somewhat dangerous to us western woodworkers. The way in which we tend to handle chisels leads to cut thumbs, as both sides are razor sharp. It took me a while to get used to that fact. They are designed to be used in carving back rounds smooth, or to clean...
