Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD  By Steve Latta

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD By Steve Latta

72 days ago by sandhill | 8 comments »

I was really not going to buy the Tool kit but when it included the DVD by Steve Latta who actually was the one responsible for the development design with lie-Nielsen I decided to pull the trigger and invest in the kit. For me the DVD was worth the entire cost of the kit and the tools were the added bonus Steve spoke slow enough to leave time to grasp the topic and made each step clear. When explaining a new term he was easy to understand. Each section flowed seamlessly to the next and was l...

Bosch 4100 left and rear extensions

Bosch 4100 left and rear extensions

72 days ago by Holbs | 7 comments »

Wish I had known about these accessories sooner! For the last year, using the bosch 4100 table saw has been great, but these support extensions make me feel much more safer. These 2 extensions are a must have for the few left out there that use the bosch 4100. Granted, these supports do not replace TRUE structure table outfeed supports but for what it is, they are highly acceptable and affordable ($27 each?).

Harbor Freight 4 In. X 24 In. Variable Speed Professional Belt Sander

Harbor Freight 4 In. X 24 In. Variable Speed Professional Belt Sander

72 days ago by Jerry | 20 comments »

Oh boy… This belt sander is the BOMB. Maybe I’m just enamored with the fact that I finally have a belt sander, but after using the 25% off coupon and comparing the specs with others, I’ve not found its equal at this price point. The bad: I had to return the first one because it randomly sped up to full speed no matter what the speed setting. I had to return the second one I bought because the tracking adjustment screw had been badly bent ( in shipping I suppose ). T...

If you are a hobby woodworker check this unit out.

If you are a hobby woodworker check this unit out.

73 days ago by JAY Made | 10 comments »

This is a great planer, out of the box the unit performed very well very smooth surface and virtually no snipe. I adjusted the in feed and out feed tables now there is no snipe at all. The only slightly annoying thing is the out feed table will not fold up all the way with the dust collection port installed but I can live with that (I’m not even knocking any stars off). I was thinking about getting the Dewalt 735x but I wanted a segmented cutting head, and upgrading the Dewalt later was way o...

Penn State Industries 2.5HP Tempest S-Series Cyclone Dust Collector  Temp1425S

Penn State Industries 2.5HP Tempest S-Series Cyclone Dust Collector Temp1425S

76 days ago by English | 14 comments »

I am a retired engineer. I have a 672 sq. ft. shop. I purchased my 2.5 hp Tempest S in Jan 2014. I built a isolated support stand out of 2” x 4” board and mounted the Tempest so that the top was at 110” about 10” from the ceiling. I installed a 6” sheet metal duct system made of 6” 26 gauge snap lock duct and 6” 26 gauge fittings. I was able to find the 26 gauge 6” duct, 90° elbows and reducers at Ferguson. I found the flue style wyes at Home Depot online. The 6” blast gates are s...

A must have glue accessory

A must have glue accessory

77 days ago by Crickett | 10 comments »

No matter how silly it seems, perhaps one of my absolute favorite tools in my shop is one of the smallest and cheapest. I recently purchased Rocklers silicone glue kit complete with a silicone brush, silicone rake/comb, and a silicone tray. I also purchased separately the silicone dowell applicators. In my opinion, anything that increases my efficiency, reduces cost, and saves materials is something to at least consider. We all use glue on nearly every project, and most of us in the past use...

Building a cyclone system

Building a cyclone system

80 days ago by Crickett | 19 comments »

**I built my shop within the past two years and at first, I have to admit the dust collection wasn’t much of a concern to me. I simply would use adapters and wheel around my shop vac to different machines as needed. The more and more ignored this problem (for the sake of more time woodworking of course) I would notice how many respirators I started going through. But being how I am, I couldn’t just go by a cyclone system from someone – I had a burning need to piece one toget...

Triton Belt Sander

Triton Belt Sander

80 days ago by Crickett | 3 comments »

I recently found myself in the middle of knocking out several end grain cutting board projects just as a nice thank you for some friends and family. While I paid attention to my glueups, perhaps I should have wiped off the excess glue squeeze out rather than letting it dry. Once I had the boards configured how I like, I attempted skip planing the tops and bottoms to level them and remove the dried glue. That didn’t work. I then ran them through my drum sander with 50 grit paper on the d...

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

81 days ago by paxorion | 3 comments »

That’s probably all the saw you’d need – My wife Famous last words for a saw that I quickly became annoyed with. I purchased the saw about 3 years ago during a Lowes fathers day sale. For the price, was quite the bargain. I’ve used the saw for for a much of home repair/renovation jobs, as well as many woodworking projects to break down sheet goods and solid lumber. At 13amps, it’s rated to have less power than many 15amp saws, but I doubt many would experi...

Excellent budget-friendly compressor for brad nailing and tire inflation

Excellent budget-friendly compressor for brad nailing and tire inflation

82 days ago by ikillbugs | 7 comments »

Recently I was heading to a big box store to pick up a Porter-Cable 6-gal air compressor but stopped into a local pawn shop first to see what they had to offer. I walked out with this cute little compressor for $25 (it is only $69 new at Home Depot or Amazon, with accessories). I figured it’ll be a nice starter compressor to run a cheap HFT brad nailer, and the price could not be beat. I could upgrade later if need be. Since I have no immediate plans to buy a framing nailer or spraye...
