Flexcut Micro Carving Tools

Flexcut Micro Carving Tools

10-18-2014 07:02 AM by Druid | 3 comments »

For those LJ members who (like me) have wanted to add some finer carving tools to their collection, the attached photo shows the newly introduced Micro Tools from Flexcut. Mine just arrived this week, and my initial impression is that they certainly match the high quality that I have always experienced from this manufacturer.They come fully honed and ready to use . . . read that as “razor sharp”. I have been looking for smaller scale carving tools for some time now, but have not...

Moffatt Task Lamp for Laguna 1412

Moffatt Task Lamp for Laguna 1412

10-17-2014 04:15 AM by smitty22 | 8 comments »

Moffatt 95050 Task Lamp, Incandescent/Halogen Lamp Type, Direct Mount Base Type, 24” Arm Length, 100 Watts, 1690 Raw Lumens. About $52 on Amazon. Here’s the Moffat task light mounted on the Laguna 1412 bandsaw, really works well. It’s very heavy duty, has a nice toggle on/off switch, takes a standard base 110v bulb, and made in USA. I used a Phillips 60-watt halogen flood bulb, nice ‘warm’ light which is kind to my old eyes! Best of all, it’s almost infinitely positionable to where ...

Powertec BD6900 sander - Safety Warning!

Powertec BD6900 sander - Safety Warning!

10-16-2014 04:12 PM by Tennessee | 6 comments »

I’ve owned this sander for about two years, and I bought the second table which to me made it nice. Today I was sanding the outside perimeter of a bandsaw jewelry box, a fairly big one, maybe four lbs. before cutting the drawers.I had a catch on the sander. We all have them, the belt catches the work, it drives down into the table, we chide ourselves, and go on. Not today. When the catch happened, it hit the table and the whole table sheared off the sander. I also had my shop va...

Great value for money

I needed a new jigsaw and since most of my tools are from Ryobi I decided to give this jigsaw a go, and to be honest its probably the best $40 I have spent on a tool, extremely fast and accurate and love the following features: 4 Position orbital actionVery powerful motorThere is a LED light that illuminates the blade entry point into the wood (extremely handy)No key needed for blade attachment

Good, Better, BesseyA Look at the Current Bessey Parallel Clamp LineupLooking at parallel clamps side-by-side, some features are instantly apparent. Bar size, jaw surface area, and handle diameter are all key to clamp performance. The handle material made a difference in my testing as well. The UniClamp is the smallest parallel clamp, with a lightweight bar to match. The jaw faces are small compared to other clamps in this class, but compare favorably to “F” style clamps. The handle di...

Router Mega Review - Dewalt and Porter Cable

Router Mega Review - Dewalt and Porter Cable

10-14-2014 09:01 PM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

Whether you are looking for your first router or adding a new model to a growing collection, DeWalt and Porter Cable fit the bill. The current crop of 2-1/4 h.p. combination kits have proven their merit for years. With the precision of a dedicated plunge router and the versatility of a fixed base, it’s no wonder why their popularity continues to grow. The newest crop of 1-1/4 h.p. combo kits are a great concept: squeeze all the functionality of a mid-size combo kit into a pint-sized pa...

Incra miter gauge very good, but it takes a bit of work

Incra miter gauge very good, but it takes a bit of work

10-13-2014 04:51 AM by ic3ss | 23 comments »

So I finally took the plunge and ditched my miter gauge that came with my old Unisaw. I never really used it, it just sat there if needed. Well, I knew from experience that it was crap so it has gone away. Bought the 1000HD a while back and have been using it for a few weeks and man am I impressed. This is what Made in USA is all about. I’ve been loving everything about it, but it took a bit of work. I picked it up at Rockler on sale for $119. First off, the thing is packaged ver...

I recently purchased this little jewel off Craigslist for $50 (retail $115). This is the low angle version 102, not the standard angle 103. The seller had been a product mgr for Woodcraft back in the ‘80’s, and had acquired the plane then. It had not seen much use – I don’t think it had even been honed. I don’t think it would have worked all that well as there were raised areas at the rear corners of the mouth, possibly from excessive force in use (dull blade?) o...

Aluminium 4" Box Clamp Review

Aluminium 4" Box Clamp Review

10-10-2014 07:39 PM by timbertailor | 7 comments »

I am old school, so buying metal tools that once were standard, everyday commodities, seems to be something that has lived with me as I have grown over the years. I seem to appreciate metal tools more and more every day( in this day and age of injected, molded plastic, disposable tools and appliances made in an Asian country that American company’s can not compete with) that are made state side. I put off buying these for many years and struggled through the process of assembly and g...
