Very Nice Dovetail Saw

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

01-23-2008 05:54 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 16 comments »

I love the feel of this saw. The grip is comfortable in my large hand. The saw has a nice “heavy” feel to it. The saw cuts straight and true. It has a rip tooth configuration, with a narrow set. The narrow set helps the saw cut straight, once your cut is started. Once I figured out how to start my cuts, with a light touch push stroke, cutting became very easy. Although, I still have some work to do on my dovetail joints :). www.lie-nielsen.com

One Great Marking Gauge

One Great Marking Gauge

01-23-2008 05:26 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 3 comments »

It cost a little more than most marking gauges, but I love this guy. It’s incredibly easy to adjust, with only one hand. It’s amazing smooth when adjusting. The one I have is 7” long. It came with: the standard marking blade, 2 adjustable tenon blades, and 1 large cutting blade. You can buy this guage at several different sites. You can find out more about the gauge and other Glen Drake tools at their web site glen-drake.com.

Average Marking Gauge

Average Marking Gauge

01-23-2008 05:17 AM 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

01-23-2008 03:33 AM 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

01-23-2008 03:10 AM 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

01-23-2008 02:09 AM by Ray | 14 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

01-23-2008 02:02 AM 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. ...
