Everything I wanted in a digital caliper

Everything I wanted in a digital caliper

04-14-2015 04:12 AM by Rick M. | 15 comments »

Sold by the same folks who sell the Accuremote digital inclinometer. I chose the IP54 after watching a thorough review on Youtube by Gadget Class. Inside the retail box was a decent plastic case that held the caliper, two batteries, the instructions, and a random piece of brown waxed paper (no idea why that was in there) but it was 0.004” thick. Both batteries were good. The plastic case that came with mine is slightly different than the picture on Amazon. Of course I set out to meas...

Solid on the outside, issues with accuracy and precision

Solid on the outside, issues with accuracy and precision

04-14-2015 03:50 AM by Rick M. | 14 comments »

From the outside in … The packaging was attractive and consistent with other products sold by iGaging (makes no difference but shows the company takes some pride in their products). Inside the retail box was a sturdy white cardboard box that contained the inclinometer, a nice storage pouch, the instructions, a 9V battery, and a tiny screwdriver. I expected the AccuRemote to be made of plastic but it’s actually a cast metal, possibly zinc, quite sturdy and heavier than expected. Th...

Fantastic starter HVLP set, but choose your finish wisely

Fantastic starter HVLP set, but choose your finish wisely

04-12-2015 07:18 PM by paxorion | 7 comments »

When my wife asked me to upcycle a dresser for our daughter, I told her that I needed a new tool to get it done. After doing my research and agonizing if I wanted to get the Earlex Spray Station 5500 as my first HVLP or go for the HF/Rockler HVLP. I eventually settled on this one, figuring I can learn from the experience and go for a 3 or 4 stage after I finally wear it out. I’ve had and used the unit for almost a year now. The HVLP comes with 3 tips, that at best I can figure is ...

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

04-10-2015 10:41 PM by Redoak90 | 3 comments »

I purchased the Gramercy tools sash saw kit a few weeks back. The kit comes with a saw plate with a brass back and 2 pairs of saw nut and bolt in brass. The saw was packaged in an anti-rust paper with bubble wrap. Nothing was damaged when it arrived and it looked flawless. No scratches, dings, or dents present. The saw is 14” long has 13 ppi and a 0.02” saw plate. I bought the kit because the only saw I had was a Veritas dovetail saw and wanted a larger saw to cut larger pie...

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

04-10-2015 01:22 AM by DKV | 8 comments »

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

Cheap Woodcraft Wheel Marking Gauge--It works!

Cheap Woodcraft Wheel Marking Gauge--It works!

04-08-2015 05:02 PM by CharlesA | 16 comments »

Since I have been on my quest to learn to hand cut dovetails, I have been giving my marking gauge a workout. I have been using a Crown Rosewood cutting gauge, and I have been frustrated by my inability to make an absolutely straight clean line every time. I sharpened the knife on it and still would end with a wobble here and there. I thought that the combination of the cutting knife and the very short fence was the culprit: I checked reviews and was about to pull the trigger on a Ham...

New drum sander

New drum sander

04-07-2015 04:27 PM by Ladislav | 5 comments »

Hi everyone!! I finaly got bigger drum sander :))!! I used to had 16-32 performax but without sand smart, and it was ok but only after I removed the trip braker and bypass it. But still it was quite a work to get a full kitchen ( doors) thru it . And also annoying to have to do two passes on wider doors and not being able to keep sander set perfect to the table , but on the end it had to be lil higher wich meant i basicaly run everything twice , run once flip and in again . I was looking at 2...

Comparison of two inexpensive dovetail saws

Comparison of two inexpensive dovetail saws

04-03-2015 11:53 PM by CharlesA | 10 comments »

I am not a dovetail saw expert—this review reflects my experience with the Zona dovetail saw and the Crown Gents saw as I’ve been learning to hand cut dovetails. I’ve had the Crown Gents saw for a couple of years and picked up the Zona saw this week. The Zona saw is a U.S. made, very inexpensive saw. The fit and finish on the Zona is not too impressive. Compared to the Gents saw, the Zona saw cuts a little slower—that wasn’t too notable on 1/2” ply...

Excellent For Rough Turning

Excellent For Rough Turning

04-03-2015 06:46 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

This review is for the 18mm round (3 for $24) and the 15mm R2 (Radius Squared – 3 for $24) carbide insert cutters from Cap’n Eddie Castelin http://eddiecastelin.com/cutters_only. I was charged $3 shipping for all 6 cutters ordered at the same time. I think it took 6 days from order placement to delivery in Missouri. I listed these under Cap’n Eddie as the brand, but I know he sources them from somewhere, I just don’t know where. I’ve been pleased with the value ...
