Woodworking Essentials

02-20-2016 07:16 PM by obiwanlawrence | 3 comments »

A while back, I attended Lonnie Bird’s Woodworking Essentials Course – I would have to give it a 5 star rating. What a wonderful week! I met some great woodworkers and classmates, shared woodworking stories, and received very professional instruction from Lonnie himself, one of the Master Woodworker’s of our time. We would arrive each day and at our individual workstations, we would find all of the raw materials that would be used during the day. These raw materials were...

Fantastic Value

Fantastic Value

02-20-2016 04:47 PM by momalle3 | 10 comments »

So over the years it’s hit me that the tool I reach for most often, and use ALL THE TIME, is the combination square. Use it for rough squaring, for marking and layout quick 45 degree marks, general measurement and marking of depth, etc. I’ve been using a cheap one I got at Home Depot—I think it’s the “empire” brand. it’s been adequate, but it’s not exactly square, and more annoying the rule doesn’t want to stay where you set it—t...

How to Win a Customer's Loyalty

How to Win a Customer's Loyalty

02-19-2016 07:16 PM by Ben | 5 comments »

This is more a review of Freud’s customer service rather than the SD508 itself. First, a short background: I’m a total beginner – I have no background in woodworking or family in construction or anything of the sort. I started hobby woodworking about a year ago. My start in woodworking was delayed a bit because I firmly believe in buying quality products once, instead of less precise stuff that leaves me with upgrade-itis down the road. So I saved my pennies and boug...

Hard to beat

Hard to beat

02-19-2016 01:52 AM by momalle3 | 9 comments »

I bought this for hobby shop work, mostly musical instrument making. it replaces the use of sanding spindles in a drill press. So keep in mind it is a HUGE improvement over that. I don’t have experience with other spindle sanders to compare it to This model is sold under various band names—Shop Fox, WEN, etc. I bought it at the local Woodcraft store. I had been looking at the Rigid oscillating edge sander, but there were just too many bad reviews of that thing and also I did...

Hand-operated scroll saw AKA fret saw

Hand-operated scroll saw AKA fret saw

02-18-2016 10:10 PM by Dutchy | 13 comments »

This is my first review contribution. Today I bought a well known brand hand operated scroll saw at the local hardware store for only Euro 6.50, with a full year warranty. It was cheap but despite this it has some nice benefits That’s why I want to share it with you. This saw is very environmentally friendly. It is usable in country’s with 230 volt but also in country’s where 110 Volt is used. It’s light weight but with sufficient strength. Saw blade change is easy to do without additional t...

Initial Review - Impression

Initial Review - Impression

02-18-2016 03:06 PM by Kalison | 10 comments »

Hello, Long time lurker and first time poster. I picked up my SawStop Jobsite Saw about a month ago, maybe just a little more than a month ago… so I thought I would share my initial impressions of the saw. I began my tablesaw days with a skil saw jobsite saw… which was the first and worst saw that I have ever bought. I used it enough to finish a simple project or two, and then I put it in the corner. Accuracy, Repeatability and Reliability were all very poor… but,...

DuoSharp 10" Not Flat

DuoSharp 10" Not Flat

02-15-2016 05:41 PM by Ocelot | 37 comments »

A few months ago I bought (for not very good reasons) the DMT DuoSharp Coarse/Extra-Coarse 10” “stone”. Upon receiving it, I put new bevels on a few plane blades – for which it did a quick and fine job, and quickly flattened the sole and sides of a No 4 sized bench plane – one I didn’t particularly care about. The plane seemed flat enough, and cuts excellently, but I didn’t pay much attention while doing this first one. Recently, I’ve bou...

Sealing Collection & Filter Bags to Dust Collectors

Sealing Collection & Filter Bags to Dust Collectors

02-15-2016 02:54 AM by Kelly | 6 comments »

I bought this to wrap the area of my dust collection system where the plastic and filter bags mount to the collector. Before, I was getting small dust trails. After installation, I am not finding such trails. Obviously, I am getting a better seal with the foam than I was when just clamping the [four] bags directly to the metal of the collector. I had upgraded to one micron bags and they fit pretty well, but now they fit even better. In short, in a warm shop and clamped in place, or with pr...

Finally Tamed It... Lee Valley Dog Holes Bushing and Bits

Finally Tamed It... Lee Valley Dog Holes Bushing and Bits

02-12-2016 02:15 PM by Scheol | 5 comments »

I recently needed to drill 18 round 3/4” dog holes in my Paul Seller pine workbench and because all my bench accessories are Lee Valley/Veritas I opted for their Dog Holes and Bushing kit (http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=72602&cat=1,41637). Out of the box the bit was incredibly sharp and had very pronounced spurs. The fit with the bushing is good and I could only notice a very slight play. I made my first jig to help drilling the front row of dog holes...
