Best used Tool I ever purchased

Best used Tool I ever purchased

34 days ago by steve | 11 comments »

I got this Ryobi 1300 Planer 3 years ago…I took a shot at it for $100 used, but actually almost new…the owner passed away just after buying it, and his wife sold it to me, I would have given her more, but that’s all she wanted. I have the box, receipt, EVERYTHING!I’ve had a Delta, and and an ole General…I gotta give this Ryobi the props though…and it is the ONLY Ryobi tool I own…I am not a big fan, but this older 1300 is a great design. The lock is...

Stanley Fat Max 15" handsaw - Fantastic!

Stanley Fat Max 15" handsaw - Fantastic!

35 days ago by Joe Lyddon | 10 comments »

I just received this saw, tried it out, and it cuts like a DREAM! Easy start… cuts…. Very study blade… stays nice and straight. Very comfortable hardwood handle with a nice rubber hand-hold. Super Nice! One nice thing I just noticed, that I didn’t think was going to be there, the Handle-to-Blade at top is 90 so you can use it to draw a straight 90 line like a T Square. At the bottom Handle-to-Blade is 45 so one can draw a 45 like a T Square. I love it...

Great Saw but Assembly was Quirky

Great Saw but Assembly was Quirky

36 days ago by mizzourob | 8 comments »

This is my first band saw so perhaps this may not be the best review, but with that in mind I will proceed anyway. I had been looking at bandsaws for a while, and was trying to find one that I thought would fit my needs now and into the future. I just could not justify a benchtop saw as those are not well suited for resawing, but I also wanted to stay in a reasonable budget. Ultimately it came down to this one and the Ridgid. I chose this saw over the orange one due to the closed base which h...

Worth Every Penney

Worth Every Penney

36 days ago by mcase | 3 comments »

If your like me you have had screw down holdfasts that don’t hold fast at all. A hold fast that doesn’t hold the work firmly is IMO dangerous not only to your work but to your hands as well. Having had some real loser holdfasts over the years that let the work skitter around I always dreamt of a good screw down holdfast that would actually work. So when I came across the Sjoberg Scandi it really caught my attention. The Scandi looked like a winner – heavy solid steel r...

Love it!

Love it!

37 days ago by UncleStumpy | 23 comments »

I have never reviewed any tool before, but I like this one so much that I needed to say something.I, like most LJ’s, build my own jigs and push sticks, but I need to cut a lot of small pieces for trim, inlay etc.I have already cut myself on the tablesaw once and that was plenty for the rest of my life!!!! So I bought the basic Grr-ripper with the additional 1/8” leg, set it up and started cutting slightly under 1/8’pieces and my hands were NO WHERE NEAR the blade. What a ...

Delta 36-725 Contractor Table Saw

Delta 36-725 Contractor Table Saw

37 days ago by thetinman | 65 comments »

A few friends and I share our shops and the fun of woodworking. Among us we have a diversity of age, knowledge, woodworking experience and financial flexibility. Among us there exists a wide verity of table saw types and brands. Only one of us has the luxury of a true cabinet saw. (Yes. we all hate him too but he has good beer.) The rest of us mere mortals make due with our finances such as they are. Of the type/price saw that the Delta is, two of our friends own the “orange” one and one owns...

Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide

Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide

37 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 20 comments »

Overall, the Veritas MKII leaves something to be desired and is not worth the price. There are three main issues that I found with the system: 1. Not so big of an issue: The time sacrifice it takes to setup is time better spent woodworking. It is isn’t terribly painful to set up, but it does take a few minutes to get going with it. 2. A little bit bigger issue: It is very difficult to get the chisel or plane iron in the jig at 90 degrees perfectly. Even using the equipment that...

Better Gloves for Finishing

Better Gloves for Finishing

38 days ago by CharlesA | 16 comments »

I use Nitrile gloves for finishing. My day job involves pressed shirts, silk ties, and shiny shoes—showing up with remnants of stain and polyurethane on the hands doesn’t quite work. I usually just buy some from the drug store. The only think I don’t like about the bottom of the barrel gloves is how fragile they are. It is really easy to catch them on something and next thing I know I’m wearing a shredded glove that only covers three fingers. Last week I dropp...

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

38 days ago by CharlesA | 8 comments »

Becoming more safety conscious in the workshop is something I’ve had to learn—it doesn’t come naturally to me. So even after I started wearing safety glasses regularly, using safety guards on tools, and consciously following safe tool use, I didn’t wear hearing protection. Why not? Because the loud noises didn’t really bother me, and I didn’t like any of the hearing protection I tried: some cheap earmuff style from the local hardware store, and the head...

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

38 days ago by Brett41 | 6 comments »

I saw this product posted on my friends Facebook page and noticed all the positive responses so I checked out the website. The video on the site was pretty good and showed how the hook can be used with all air nail guns. I noticed they were in some local stores on Cape Cod. After I could feel the thing and see that it was made well I grabbed one to try for myself to see if it was as easy as the the video made it look. I figured I could always return it. It turns out I really like itR...
