Porter-Cable Razor - 10" TS Blade

Porter-Cable Razor - 10" TS Blade

02-05-2008 01:48 PM by Jeff | 13 comments »

NOTE: the model number for the TS blade is 100VT50 Just as stated in the review for the circular saw blade, this is a great blade. I went to my local supplier for a thin-kerf Woodworker II but they were out. The guy I usually talk to told me I should give it a try. He makes picture frames for his father (an artist) on the side and swears by the miters you can get with it. He gave me a personal guarantee that if I didn’t like it after 30 days. He would take it back. No questions asked...

Incra - A great router fence

Incra - A great router fence

02-05-2008 02:58 AM by GaryK | 19 comments »

I purchased this after seeing it at the Woodworkers show in Dallas this year. I didn’t get it at the show becausewoodpeckers had it cheaper and free shipping. (Saved $80) I have been looking at it for a while, but thought what’s the big deal, my fence works just fine. Then atthe show I saw some features that I liked. Now, like at all shows they have nice slick demos that they doto make their product look simple and easy. Well, for the most part it is simple and easy. The sys...

solid joiner for the price

solid joiner for the price

02-04-2008 11:41 PM by KDL | 12 comments »

I bought this joiner two years ago after talking to a few woodworkers/salesmen I trust. I have used it on two large cabinets, a small table, and a small sideboard. On the whole, I think it’s a good machine for a very fair price. There are higher-end joiners that are, I’m sure, really slick. But for the money, this is a good tool, and when I bought it, it was definitely the best in its class. It comes with: The joiner, dust bag, wrenches, regular and face-frame blades, manua...

Lee Valley Bevel Edge Chisels

Lee Valley Bevel Edge Chisels

02-04-2008 01:49 AM by dustynewt | 4 comments »

At $76.00, these chisels are a great buy for all around shop use. I have had them a year now and have re-honed them only once. They really hold an edge. The set goes from 1/4” – 1 1/2”. The oblong handles are comfortable, don’t roll around and can take a real beating. They are better than the Marples and the other big box brands that I have used.

Festool - tools that make me smile

Festool - tools that make me smile

02-03-2008 03:19 AM by Jim | 2 comments »

I’m a firm believer in the “get what you pay for” adage. I bought the Festool sanders and dust extracter a couple of years ago when I was bidding a project to refinish some tabletops inside a restaurant. When I realized the veneer was too thin to refinish, I persuaded the owner to simply have new tops made. I’ve since used the Festool sanders for a variety of projects and really like the way they perform. I’m all for minimizing the dust I’m likely to suc...

Kreg tool changes the way you work

Kreg tool changes the way you work

02-03-2008 03:04 AM by Jim | 8 comments »

I got pulled in at a woodworking show years ago, and I’m glad I did. I think this is the first generation offered by Kreg and I’m tempted to buy the latest just to see how much it’s improved. I enjoy building shelves and faceframe cabinets and the Kreg makes that work even more enjoyable. I mounted the tool to a piece of plywood so it’s always hanging nearby and easily clamped to a table for action. I bought the Kreg right-angle clamps and the metal plate which speeds ...

Best darn driver I've ever used

Best darn driver I've ever used

02-03-2008 02:49 AM by Jim | 6 comments »

How many tools evoke real pleasure each time you use them? This Makita will do that. I was replacing a patio cover while doing a “Paint the Town” project a couple of years ago. The cover was composed of dozens of 16’ long 2×4’s that needed to be screwed into the crossmembers. A guy that fixed my garage door recommended I buy this Makita for the job. Boy, was he right. Now I typically reach for the Makita before I consider any other drill/driver. The impact takes ...

Great Blade but don't let looks fool you

Great Blade but don't let looks fool you

02-02-2008 08:59 PM by teenagewoodworker | 1 comment »

these blades are great and at a low price to. i payed 6$ for it at home depot and i have been very satisfied with it so far. origionally my dad didn;t want me to buy it because of the looks. he thought that it looked weird and he didn’t want to stray from the regular blades that he usually uses that cost around 20$. but i persuaded him and now we love this blade. i bought the 71/4” version for my dad’s circular saw but i’m sure that the 10” versions probably work...

DONT BUY B&D BLADES

DONT BUY B&D BLADES

02-02-2008 08:44 PM by teenagewoodworker | 6 comments »

i thought that i could buy a few black and decker blades for my new jig saw and they were cheap enough that i could stock up so i did. they cost 2$ for 2 blades at Lowe’s. i am going to spring for the more expensive Bosch, and Milwaukee blades next time i buy. the blades were wandering so much that by the end of the cut i would have a 20 degree angle running all along the edge of the board. i will not buy black and decker jigsaw blades or any other black and decker blades again

Who's got two thumbs and loves to staple?

Who's got two thumbs and loves to staple?

02-02-2008 05:55 AM by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

This guy. This stapler shoots 1/2” to 1 1/2” narrow crown staples. Have you ever had to remove a freakin’ narrow crown staple. It is not coming out. Staples resist racking. I use this for reinforcing cabinets and attaching their backs. Very strong. Also it is awesome for building lattice. Brads and finish nails will pull out. Staples hold strong. (Use galvanized for outdoor.) I would definitely buy another P.C. gun. No jams. No problemo. 4 stars because how...
