No more aching thumbs

No more aching thumbs

2365 days ago by MrWoody | 6 comments »

I received this last Christmas and hadn’t used it.As anyone who has used a scraper over an extended period of time can attest your thumbs become painful.This morning I needed to do a very small bit of scraping but I have a calcium growth that is interfering with the muscle in my thumb making using it for even small things very painful.I opened a drawer and my scraper holder was sitting there and even had a scraper in it ready to go.This thing works. I won’t be doing anymore scrapi...

Great Assortment

Great Assortment

2365 days ago by Chris | 0 comments »

This arrived as a surprise Christmas gift along with my Festool drill. It has a great assortment of the different bits in a easy to use and organize container. It even has multiples of the bits you would use most often. The biggest drawback to the assortment was that it was only available for a very limited time. If you add it up you do save a fair amount on the per accessory cost. Photo from the Festool Website

Excellent Drill/Driver

Excellent Drill/Driver

2365 days ago by Chris | 9 comments »

This drill was Christmas gift from my wife this past year. My previous cordless had given up the ghost back in November and I had been grousing about have to use the corded drill all the time. We debated about the merits of 14v vs. 18v vs. 12v? for a while when I told her to pick what we could afford in the budget. I will admit I had my reservation with regards to a 12v drill; I don’t have them any longer. The drill comes with the case (systainer), charger, two batteries, Centrotec ...

Great for honing, but doesn't replace stones and grinders

Great for honing, but doesn't replace stones and grinders

2365 days ago by Hawgnutz | 12 comments »

I love my Work Sharp! But it has limitations that you will have to work around. One major one is that it will not sharpen plane irons wider than two inches! When I tried to sharpen my iron from my #7, using their auxiliary sharpening fence, I inadvertantly added two extra angles. I then had to use my stones to correct these new angles. When sharpening plane irons 2” and smaller, it does a good job, but you need to do the initial sharpening on a stone first, or be prepared to spen...

Outstanding Saw for the Home Shop

Outstanding Saw for the Home Shop

2365 days ago by Chris | 4 comments »

I have owned this saw for approx. two years now. In reality I would rate it at about 4.5 stars only due to a minor annoyance. I had been using a bench top Delta given to me by my father in-law for a few years and had become VERY frustrated with this kind of saw. In my search for a contractor style saw it came down to either the Powermatic or the General; I am glad I chose the General. It was accurate right out of the box; I used a Master Plate / Master Guage setup to check the blade and ...

Pricey, but worth it

Pricey, but worth it

2365 days ago by CutNRun | 4 comments »

This past Christmas I left a subtle hint for my wife in the form of printed web sites showing both the Starrett 4” double square and the Starrett 12” combination square. I was hoping to get either one as a present. My wonderful wife got me both. I already had some cheap, big box store squares. The rules never slid smoothly and sometimes the locking screw wouldn’t hold the rule in position. The difference with the Starrett squares is dramatic. The thumb screws lock do...

Jam to your tunes while safe from yuor machinery whine!

Jam to your tunes while safe from yuor machinery whine!

2365 days ago by Hawgnutz | 1 comment »

This is a tool I use all the time! My bandsaw is notorious for its high decibel whine when I use it, and coupled with the dust collection, that means it gets down right unbearable for my ears! These protect my ears, while allowing me to rock on or country out while I use my tools! They really protect me from the sound of my pneumatic full-head nailer! The on/off/volume control is set intuitively on the right ear. The only problem is that the radio tuner is non-digital, extending knob a...

DeWalt countersink set--almost really good

DeWalt countersink set--almost really good

2365 days ago by KDL | 1 comment »

The quick-change driver is easy to use and does it’s job well. The countersinks cut a fine divet—the cutters are small, which gives a clean cut, but they do clob easily, so take a moment to brush them off between holes. The only weak point is the bits. They are brittle and have very little depth-of-hole adjustment. I broke them quickly, but found better replacement bits at a big box store. For the price, it’s a decent set, but having bought them, I would now spend the ...

Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

2365 days ago by Dadoo | 12 comments »

I bought this tool off of Ebay a couple years ago and although the price was very good (less than $60.00) this tool just don’t “cut it” with me. First off, it’s very loud. Loud enough that you need hearing protection. Secondly, it creates a ton of dust and blows it all around, requiring respiratory protection, a shop vac, mop and bucket, as well as a shower when you’re done. So here’s some more pros and cons that I have found. PROS Plunge router base, c...

Powermatic 54A 6" Jointer

Powermatic 54A 6" Jointer

2365 days ago by Dale | 3 comments »

I bought this jointer about a year ago as I was building a kitchen table. It has been great! It is very heavy which helps eliminate any vibration. I also bought the mobile base that goes with it – necessary for a small shop like mine. I have run alot of hard maple and red & white oak through the jointer with no problems at all. It is very powerful and does not bog down whith the largest beams run through it. The extra long beds are awesome! They make jointing long boards so much eas...
