A great source of exotic woods

A great source of exotic woods

07-24-2009 11:41 PM by reggiek | 14 comments »

I had the pleasure of finding a wonderful source of exotic woods for projects and turnings. Searching through the internet search engines, I came accross a posting for a small company located about 20 or so miles away from my home. They listed some very nice items….and had pictures which I could view and select. I went through their postings and found numerous one of a kind pieces. I selected only a few of the ones I wanted and purchased with an indication that I would pick them up....

Grizzly G0691 Table Saw

Grizzly G0691 Table Saw

07-24-2009 04:38 PM by stitchop | 30 comments »

I have assembled my new G0691 Grizzly table saw, and made a few cuts, and will post my first impressions.I purchased this saw as soon as Grizzly put free shipping on it. This saw is replacing a 11 year old Craftsman contractor saw, and I expect it to be the last table saw I ever buy. .... Unpacking and assembly of the saw was a simple matter of following simple instuctions. All the parts were present and easily identified. The assembly starts with removing a brace from the tunnions. This ...

All I could say was.... "wow"

All I could say was.... "wow"

I got this used a couple of days ago. the price was right and I had wanted something that I could speed sharpening up, and get a hollow grind for freehand honing/touchups. before getting it, I tried to gather as much information about this, as I haven’t seen too many reviews on the unit except for KnotScott’s review here, and some other reviews on Amazon (which I always take with a grain of salt). it seemed like all the reviews were raving about how good the machine is, which m...

Lasted <1 day

Lasted <1 day

07-23-2009 10:44 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

seems like I had my share of disappointing experiences with tools last couple of weeks, but I guess a bad review is more valuable than a good one as it can save the agony of others. so here goes: I had a dewalt cordless grinder for years, and although I have very limited use for it, I find it very valuable, since when the time comes – there’s nothing else that can do that job as good. unfortunately my 18v batteries all died on me, and currently there is no justification to spen...

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

07-23-2009 03:32 PM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

I ordered this to tackle the nail pulling process I encountered while reclaiming some Bowling alley floors. As I mentioned in a comment on my blog, I usually am not inclined to order anything online that I have not been able to experience first hand. but since I was desperate, and it just so happened that this product was mentioned a couple of times here and there just when I was looking for nail pulling devices, I figured I’d take the plunge and go for it – a little out of the us...

Simple Green Again

Simple Green Again

07-23-2009 03:41 AM by Kindlingmaker | 19 comments »

I know there have been many praises and reviews for Simple Green to clean all kinds of saw blades but I read another praise in “Woodworkers Resource” about mixing Simple Green 1:4, 1 part Simple Green to 4 parts water. The author let the blades soak for 3 hours and said it worked as good or better than any other product for removing build up on saw blades. I have tried mineral spirits, paint thinner, gasoline, and just about everything else with small success, so I mixed up 1 gallon of Simpl...

Plenty of power, good chuck, a little noisy.

Plenty of power, good chuck, a little noisy.

It’s been nearly two years since I purchased my Ryobi D46CK driver drill to replace an old Craftsman drill that had been on long term loan a little too long… The features I liked about this particular drill were the fact that it had a keyless chuck, with a good, predictable chuck. The blow molded case helps with storage and at least TRYING to keep my shop tidy. Power from this drill has been great, after Hurricane Ike I used it with a 1.5” long shaft (18”) spade ...

Mastercraft Hawkeye laser review

Mastercraft Hawkeye laser review

07-22-2009 03:49 AM by BeachedBones | 9 comments »

I was noticing that there were no Mastercraft saws reviewed, so I though I’d jot one down for those Canuks out there. Mastercraft is a store brand of Canadian Tire if you don’t know. I bought this saw because I’m working on a flooring install away from home, I was using a small old Craftsman saw that I’ve had for 14 or so years. The old Craftsman cooked it’s bearings and toasted the motor. Anyways, I needed a portable saw to replace that one and finish the job...

Great & Quiet Portable Belt Drive Compressor

Great & Quiet Portable Belt Drive Compressor

07-21-2009 01:55 PM by Cato | 9 comments »

When I discovered that my loud old direct drive unit would not supply enough air to run my new framing nailer I started searching for a portable belt drive replacement with a 4 or higher CFM @ 90 PSI, which is supposed to be adequate for framers. I wanted a belt drive because I knew they were quieter, and I couldn’t stand the noise of my old one. I searched on the web and found this compressor to be highly rated by contractors, and it was supposed to be very quiet with plenty of pow...

Leatherman Skeletool CX Multitool, It's what Batman would carry.

Leatherman Skeletool CX Multitool, It's what Batman would carry.

07-21-2009 06:00 AM by EricWrights | 3 comments »

I already have a multi-tool (Swiss Army Champion Plus), it’s a great tool to be sure, but for me out of the 30 tools in it I only ever use the small blade and once in a blue moon the scissors. It’s a “little of everything” tool but not particularly strong in any one of the particular tools. The allure of the Skeletool for me was:The simplicity, but being strong in what it gives you:1. On the CX model, the 154CM combo plain/serrated blade is beefy enough to do a job ...
