Best Option I've Found

01-07-2018 01:41 PM by EarlS | 17 comments »

I read an article written by a hand surgeon for Popular Woodworking. “In the hundreds of table saw injuries I’ve seen, I’ve yet to see an amputation from a table saw with an appropriate blade guard and splitter. There have never been many good reasons to remove the guard; now with better-designed saws, guards and riving knives, there are even fewer. I’ve seen woodworkers injured on the “backstroke” as they bring a hand back over an unprotected blade after a cut, those who didn’t see ...

Great beginner woodturning chisels (carbide)

Great beginner woodturning chisels (carbide)

01-06-2018 07:53 PM by Blake Haskins | 2 comments »

This Psi carbide turning tool kit is great for beginners.While I believe that Is generally true for carbide tools in general, this one can be especially appealing thanks to the entry level price. Carbide tools in general seem more approachable to beginners thanks to their simplicity, and their not needing sharpening. To see them in action, check out my quick review video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9g1-cHm7BM

Timbery Sawmill M100 Electric

Timbery Sawmill M100 Electric

12-30-2017 09:06 PM by Rebarn | 9 comments »

We have had our Timbery M100 Electric Sawmill for 5 years now. We have run this machine with a lot of respect…and not really “hard” by comparison to full time sawyers. But we have put this saw to work to make money in our shop and it has performed well for our needs of resawing large beams into lumber and mantels. It’s an electric mill, which is exactly what I needed for our shop. It has a 5HP electric motor. We have an 18 foot bed on the saw. The housing for t...

Laguna - Great Product!

Laguna - Great Product!

We have had our Laguna bandsaw for about two years now. We use it mostly for resawing medium to small stock. We use the Resaw King carbide tip blade. All I can say is that this is a great saw and the Resaw King blade is remarkable!

Great Jig for a Reasonable Price

Great Jig for a Reasonable Price

12-30-2017 03:00 AM by scarpenter002 | 3 comments »

As I was starting my Home Office project, I decided to use the European styled hinges, rather than the more common hinges I typically use. I have not had much luck with these hinges, so based on research decided to purchase some jigs to make my installations more repeatable. I reviewed many different jigs, and through the shopping process, ran into the Kreg. I have always been happy with Kreg products in the past, and with a MSRP of only $29.99 USD, it did not seem like too much of a gambl...

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

12-29-2017 02:10 AM by Walker | 6 comments »

I’m writing this review because there doesn’t seem to be very much information around on the Striplox woodworking products. I stumbled upon these connectors while designing a future project. I wanted a modern look with completely hidden joints. It appears they are a fairly new product. To my delight they were available at my local Woodcraft store and are relatively cheap, so I purchased a pack to play around with. The clerk was actually surprised they had them and wasn’...

Drill Press Compound Vise

Drill Press Compound Vise

12-28-2017 05:52 PM by John Smith | 4 comments »

I don’t normally review tools as there are so many and every person has different expectations of the product, based on their use. I purchased this “entry level” Shop Fox drill press vise a few months ago off of E-Bay.several vendors sell basically the same thing, all come from China or other Asian country.once I got all the grease out of it and got it dialed in, it is very simple to operate.you may have to redrill the bolt pattern to fit your table. all in all, this is ...

Narex Woodworking Chisels, Set of 4   863010

Narex Woodworking Chisels, Set of 4 863010

12-26-2017 04:40 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

I picked up a set of four chisels, which includes the 6mm, 12mm, 20mm, and 26mm. I also added a 4mm chisel to the set (good for thin dovetails). I cleaned up the machine oil on the steel, and it came off okay. I inspected the finish on the handles and some were perfect, and a couple had slight roughness to the finish. A quick buffing with a 1000 grit soft sanding sponge took care of it. The wood itself was smooth, it was just a couple rough spots in the finish. So I took a look at the...

A wonderful eyesight helper for tiny things!

A wonderful eyesight helper for tiny things!

12-24-2017 03:36 PM by Holbs | 4 comments »

I started to reshape a handsaw with my normal sight and then with my reading glasses (1.25 Power…Maybe prescription glasses for higher power would work instead of these). Both were not up to par for the tiny delicate work that was needed. I thought about jewelry professionals that use those monocles and that should be exactly what would work! Out searching I go… I eventually found this magnifier. Found out, can not use monocles as the item has to be a couple inches away from ...

Excellent jig but short on guide plates

Excellent jig but short on guide plates

12-23-2017 01:12 AM by EarlS | 5 comments »

I spent quite a bit of time researching options for a mortise and tenon jig. In short order, the options were narrowed down to the Festool Domino or the Leigh FMT Pro M&T jig. As part of the final review I asked the LJ forum what folks thought of both tools. Responses were evenly split between them. I finally chose to go with the FMT Pro. So here goes: Overview: 4 Stars – I was able to make very accurate, tight and repeatable mortises and tenons even with double angles (5 stars)...
