Discontinued Drill sharpener was what I needed

Discontinued Drill sharpener was what I needed

04-15-2017 12:09 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 18 comments »

I’ve been wanting to sharpen all of my old drills. I’ve got a lot of them and it’s getting to the point that I’m down to choosing the least dull of all my dull drills. Lots of burning wood and poor results on metal. I was left with the choices of getting a drill sharpener or buying more new drills. These are regular twist drills, from very small ones up to half inch. Not drills like forstner bits. I’ve had not so good results trying to sharpen them freehand on...

About the Little Things

About the Little Things

There are a lot of Sawstop reviews both here on LJ’s and on Youtube and other places. Everyone says that it is a quality item and has the infamous safety feature. I’ve only had my new Saw for a couple of weeks and made a few dozen cuts with it and you already know about the saw in general having seen the hotdog videos I’m sure, but there’s more to point out. Some companies have a different philosophy. What comes to mind are companies like Tesla. Get the best enginee...

Great Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

Great Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

04-11-2017 06:27 PM by CharlesA | 12 comments »

I listen to lots of podcasts, and I especially like to listen to them while I woodwork. These 3M Worktunes headphones are just what the doctor ordered. As hearing protection they work well: block out the sound and are quite comfortable. Add to that the ability to listen to FM/AM/Aux/Bluetooth. I use the radio a bit. It is pretty basic, a manual tuning wheel—works adequately. I haven’t used the auxiliary cable hookup. Where they shine is the bluetooth capability. I find podcast...

Wireless garage-door security

I needed a reasonably priced, automatic garage door closer, preferably wireless. This product has been used on my Arizona garage, for 3 years. And it still is as good as new, except for replacement of an occasional 9 volt battery. http://www.protectrix.com/

Grngate Gates Work Great

Grngate Gates Work Great

Check out my video review on Youtube…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ic9A73Fb_Y Installing this Grngate starter system was amazingly simple. If you can plug in a phone, you can install this system. Of course you have to wire the system controller, but that’s nothing more than stripping a few wires, and screwing the wires to a terminal block. Actually I sacrificed a 240v extension cord so I could keep my dust collectors cord intact, and that was a good solution for me. Th...

Bench Dog Router setup - Inconsistent Quality

Bench Dog Router setup - Inconsistent Quality

04-09-2017 01:51 PM by EarlS | 10 comments »

It’s been a year since I ordered the Bench Dog Promax RT Cast Iron router table, Pro Fence, ProLift, and steel cabinet. Rather than review on each component I decided to review the entire set up since the Bench Dog sells it as a complete set up. The complete set up is $1000 on Rockler. First off – this thing is a beast. The table top weighs in at 100 lbs and the router lift with my 3-1/4 HP Porter Cable Router weighs 35 lbs or more. The cabinet weighs 40 lbs or more. D...

Impact Driver Technology - What is the REAL difference?

Impact Driver Technology - What is the REAL difference?

04-09-2017 02:56 AM by WoodWorkLIFE | 5 comments »

I have been using impact drivers for a while, but in the past two years, the technologies have exploded. Buying and impact driver is like buying a laptop now. Heck, Milwaukee makes one that links up with your phone with Bluetooth now. In this video review kind of thing, I look at RIDGIDs Gen 4x vs. 5x Brushed Technology, while also looking at newer Brushless technology in the form of a Makita offering compared to the brand new brushless hydraulic drivers, in this case, RIDGID’s hydra...

Mixed review after 1st month of use

Mixed review after 1st month of use

04-07-2017 07:14 PM by Elwyn24601 | 8 comments »

I will try and keep this somewhat short and as sweet as I can. the TL;DR will be at the bottom in the form of pro’s and cons. My background: I am a 25 year old chemist by day and recently a woodworker by night, I grew up doing stage-craft so I and wood have a long, on again off again, relationship (the off again parts due mostly do uncertain living conditions and lack of funds). The Search: I started looking at the ridgid r4512 as a starting point, so as any self respecting millen...

Campaign Furniture by Christopher Schwarz

Campaign Furniture by Christopher Schwarz

Campaign Furniture By Christopher Schwarz. Illustrated. 332 pp. Lost Art Press LLC. $35 Camping, hiking, cycling, and even business travel. Rooted within the mind of the traveler is the urge to explore, to strive forward, equipped not only to survive, but to thrive. For me long distance bicycle touring exemplifies this concept. Pushing out on a week-long camping trip, my saddlebags packed with clothing, lightweight tent, folding camp stove, cooking gear, rain gear, repair kit and instant S...

Man what a store! Kid in the candy store is the only apt description. Super friendly help and just a wonderful experience. Worth a special trip if you are looking for tools and even reasonably close. I will be going back too.
