My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

09-29-2014 12:18 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

09-28-2014 03:03 PM by walden | 36 comments »

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 12:29 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 09:08 AM 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...

Laguna Tools 14/12 initial review.

Laguna Tools 14/12 initial review.

09-26-2014 02:50 PM by PatrickB | 17 comments »

Hello,This is my initial review of the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw. I earlier owned the Grizzly G0555 Extreme which I sold. I pondered getting another Grizzly and found the Laguna on sale at Rockler. BY the time I was done with replacing parts on the Grizzly to reach the Laguna as it came stock I was already over the sale price so that rapidly changed my mind. I remember my old Grizzly was always a little slow on cutting but I didn’t really have any issues with it. There are some changes to th...

Ridgid 4512 and a 10mm handgun

Ridgid 4512 and a 10mm handgun

09-26-2014 01:13 PM by rantingrich | 20 comments »

I bought a Brand new RIDGID R4512 this spring and this is my story. Got it at HOME CHEAPO 15 miles away. Mother weighed in at 250 plus pounds. Took me and 2 employees to lift it into my truck Took most of the afternoon to assemble, partially because of my 8 pound water head didn’t do it right a couple of times. The MOTOR and table assembly COMES up side down in the box and that is how I cut the box off off it, and it was a real piece of work to get it flipped over with only my se...

Great little clamp with lots of promise

Great little clamp with lots of promise

09-25-2014 12:23 PM by woodshopmike | 2 comments »

The Hart Tools 2in hand clamps aren’t like your grandpa’s old spring clamps. They’re easy to position, clamp down with up to 50 lbs of force, and release easy as you please. I couldn’t wait to try out these clamps. I didn’t have any glue ups to do, but I did need to make some repetitive cuts with the miter saw. I grabbed a piece of scrap to use as a stop and clamped it in place against the fence on my miter saw bench. These clamps held the stop in place ve...

Good performance but I wouldn't buy it again

Good performance but I wouldn't buy it again

09-25-2014 07:21 AM by JSB | 25 comments »

The planer itself performs very well. It has a heck of a chip ejection system that will allow you to pipe this into a filter bag without the need for a dust collector. I’ve never had an issue with the amount of power it has even at full 13” wide passes. Snipe is horrible out of the box but the way I have my auxiliary bed setup it reduces it significantly. Lots of upgrades and options available on the internet. The reason I wouldn’t buy it again is that it’s a money ...

Not perfect but love the table

Not perfect but love the table

09-24-2014 08:09 PM by Ajax86 | 15 comments »

Good points: the table did not take long to assemble. Its sturdy and doesn’t move easily (but not too heavy to change its location). The price was great. Bad points: the bottom shelf was cut too narrow and it keeps falling out of the grooves. One of the drawers would not open/close because the metal drawer slide was defective. Harbor freight said they would send a replacement part out. Some of the parts that came with this table I will not use so if you would like to have my ext...

Cuts Like a Dream

Cuts Like a Dream

09-22-2014 07:10 PM by grfrazee | 4 comments »

For those of you who don’t know, LJ Wally331 is currently a senior in high school. He also happens to be rather skilled at making hand saws. I commissioned Chris to make me a 10”, 14 TPI dovetail saw. It has a brass back, hand-shaped African bloodwood handle, and hand-filed teeth. The saw’s split nuts are hand made as well. To put it simply, this saw cuts wonderfully. I had no problem sawing parallel lines down a piece of scrap pine and walnut, and the saw rode bea...
