"Joinery" The Complete Illustrated Guide To Joinery by Gary Rowgoski

10-03-2014 11:16 PM by a1Jim | 12 comments »

I have enjoyed Gary’s articles in” Fine Woodworking” for years and had admired his workmanship and know how,so when I found he had a book on joinery I jumped at a chance to purchase one.I have owned this book for a number of years and have found it an invaluable tool for teaching my woodworking class and general use in my shop. This book is laid out very well with photos an names of the joints as and index and then at the beginning of chapters .This makes finding any particu...

My first review! - Woodcraft preformed sanding pads in multiple profies

My first review! - Woodcraft preformed sanding pads in multiple profies

10-03-2014 12:59 AM by rblank | 2 comments »

This is my first review of anything…ever, so please bear with me. I was refinishing my front door and needed some way to get the three layers of old paint out of all the small, hard to reach places and profiles. “Why not just repaint the door” you’re probably asking yourself? Well it all started with an overly rambunctious teenager driving me nuts one Saturday morning, so for his punishment I told him to scrape all the old paint off the door I have intended to repai...

Porter Cable 20v MAX lithium cordless tools

The circular saw is a disappointment. It has cutting power but the shoe is wiggly. If you need a precise circular saw, choose a different format. Otherwise the P-C tools I tested are good quality withpowerful, high-torque motors and relatively basic features.

Steel City 14 Inch Deluxe Brand 2 Speed Model 50114 (Initial Thoughts)

Steel City 14 Inch Deluxe Brand 2 Speed Model 50114 (Initial Thoughts)

Happy Birthday to me! I have been eyeing this band saw since the beginning of summer. My band saw previous to this was a black and decker 3 wheel 10 inch which is ok for small stuff and not ok for anything else. Anyway, after begging and pleading my wife (and finally agreeing to paint the house (grrrrrrrrrrrr)) I got a bandsaw. I got the saw yesterday and since I haven’t seen a review of this anywhere online (I looked everywhere) I decided to write in some quick thoughts to may...

What a difference good Air Couplers make

What a difference good Air Couplers make

10-01-2014 01:57 AM by BigDaddyO | 7 comments »

I just finished replacing all of the Air disconnects in my shop after getting fed up with most of them leaking. I am VERY impressed with these as they use ball bearings to hold the couplers in place so there is no leakage even when moving the hose around. My limited review of the Milton vs the Harbor Freight, Home Depot, and the ones that came on my Air Compressor. http://youtu.be/uISnierCQH4

Excellent routers for the money (and in general for that matter)

Excellent routers for the money (and in general for that matter)

09-30-2014 06:46 AM by jtm | 15 comments »

So I figured it was time to contribute to the review section of this site. Rather than review each router individually, I decided that since these share a lot of the same features, it might be a good idea to review them as a whole. I have four routers, all of which are current production models sold at Sears: 1) Craftsman Professional 14-amp, 2.5-hp Fixed/Plunge Base (in my router table)2) Craftsman 12-amp, 2-hp Fixed Base (for my dovetail jig)3) Craftsman 12.0 AMP/VS 2.0 HP Digital Plu...

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

09-29-2014 07:18 PM by OttoH | 19 comments »

I have owned a Bostitch pin nailer for three years now and it has been a miserable experience. But today it finally made me happy. How? Well I too a 15 pound sledge hammer to it and smashed it to smithereens. I do hereby swear to never ever purchase another Bostitch tool. A big name with poor designs, I am very disappointed in them.

Works Well with Only One Negative

Works Well with Only One Negative

I purchased Lee Valley’s new Veritas custom plane when it first became available. After messing around with it for a few days, here are my thoughts. 1) The plane is built well and looks a lot better than their old line of bench planes. It feels nice and heavy and is about the same weight as a Lie-Nielsen (LN) #5. I bought mine with the “medium” traditional tote in the back and the middle-sized knob in the front. This gives it the same feeling in the hand as old Stanley or...

Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty

Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty

09-28-2014 07:29 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 15 comments »

This is by far my favorite wood putty for filling out holes and cracks. Easy to sand and smooth. And takes paint well and doesn’t shrink. << It is says it can’t be stained but I will try it one of these days >>. 3 parts powder to 1 part water. I just keep adding powder and mixing it real good until it looks like peanult butter then I know it’s perfect for filling holes. And you get a lot 16 oz can for the money and don’t have to worry about drying out. Just mix a batch as much as ...

Woodpeckers TS-6  T-Square

Woodpeckers TS-6 T-Square

09-28-2014 04:08 PM by timbertailor | 2 comments »

I recently did a review of the” Woodpecker’s 6” Carpenter’s Square” and I use it a great deal. But, when I need to do more detailed work, the precision of the TS-6 is a welcome addition to anyone’s measurement and layout arsenal. It is 6” long, as the name implies and is just the right size for most small jobs like mortis, tenons, hole layout, jointery, hinge and drawer layout, inlays, etc. The ruler has 1/32” micro holes for use with a me...
