Average Marking Gauge

Average Marking Gauge

2401 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I bought this marking gauge, because I thought it was better deal than the Tite-Mark. I was really disappointed with the the Micro-Adjustment on the Veritas. It requires you to use both hands to adjust the gauge. The instructions even tell you that you have to use both hands. Once adjusted the gauge works well and is accurate. If you want to buy Veritas, I suggest buying their standard marking gauge and save a few more bucks.

Great DVD on the Jointer and Planer

Great DVD on the Jointer and Planer

2401 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 13 comments »

I heard about this DVD over at Matt's Basement Workshop. I hadn’t hear of Hendrik Varju before that, but I’m glad I know about him now. His DVD on the power Jointer and Planer is one the best woodworking DVDs I’ve watched. It covers all of the techniques you need, to get the most out of your Jointer and Planer. If you are new to using these machines, I highly recommend this DVD. I wish I had had it when I first bought my Jointer and Planer. Many of the mistakes I made ...

Great little nailer

Great little nailer

2401 days ago by Roger Strautman | 5 comments »

This was a micro nailer that I bought in hopes of fastening trim on the very end of the piece without splitting and not just any trim but oak and it worked great. This 23 gauge nailer is very light weight and can shoot 1/2”- 1” headless pins so small that if you stain the piece you have to look very hard to even see the small spot of the head. The pins are sold in packets of 2600 form $7-$12. The only downfall that I have found with this gun is that it has no safety so one has to ...

Dewalt DW735

Dewalt DW735

2401 days ago by dataman | 13 comments »

I have really worked this tool for many hours lately and am totally impressed with its performance. It is pricy but has received a number of best product recognitions in magazine articles in their plainer reviews. It’s easy to adjust and feed wood through. You must use a vacuum system with it! It’s 13” wide capacity should cover most boards you want to plain down.It has a three knife cutter-head which helps extend the life of the knife. The blades are easy to change and t...

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

2401 days ago by pastor_shane | 8 comments »

Now I know what some of you may be thinking. Putting a JessEm MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 is well, kinda like putting a bored out 350 engine into a Chevy Citation. But with the mastRSlide, I have been able to achieve very accurate and just as importantly consistent results with this set-up. While someday I hope to be able to afford a hybrid or full-blown cabinet saw, the mastRSlide has allowed me to take on projects that I otherwise would never have dared attempt on the Bosch 4000 alone. ...

3D Router Carver System by CMT

3D Router Carver System by CMT

2401 days ago by dataman | 4 comments »

Quite a few years ago I purchased a CMT 3D Router Carver System by CMT.My first project was the front of a cedar chest I built for my oldest son as a wedding gift. It allowed me add a professional looking carving on the front of the chest without screwing it up since I do not know how to carve. I have had this tool for at least 10 years and for a while it went out of production but a couple of years ago they reintroduced it. It is easy to set up and as long as you have a ½” plunge rout...

Delta Dust Collector Model 50-760

Delta Dust Collector Model 50-760

2401 days ago by CutNRun | 6 comments »

I also have this dust collector and have been very pleased with it. The one micron top bag does an excellent job of filtering. My garage shop is small and I simply move the dust collector around or switch the hose from one machine to another. At this point I don’t intend to add any piping other than to perhaps rig something for my router table. Prior to purchasing the Delta unit, I used an old Sears shop vacuum. The Delta unit is much quieter and does a dramatically better job. ...
