Great Pinner for the price!

Great Pinner for the price!

03-26-2015 01:15 PM by TMH | 4 comments »

I purchased this Pinner for use on this Project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/139721. The Pinner worked great right out of the box. I purchased from Amazon for $29.98 after reading all the good reviews (4.5 stars). I didn’t want to spend a lot of money and this fit the bill. Works flawless so far after over 100 pins. I also purchased Porter-Cable PN23Pp nail kit to qualify for free shipping. (the gun is pretty worthless without pins) As stated in the Amazon reviews, once the s...

Review of Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner

Review of Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner

03-25-2015 04:26 PM by Lee | 15 comments »

After reading so many good things about this product, I decided to try it myself. I did a comparison using the Trend Tool and Bit cleaner and just some penetrating oil that I was using before. First pic shows a saw blade that I’ve chosen to try the Trend on first. 2nd pic shows how I divided up the saw, into two sides. One side I cleaned with the Trend, and the other with just simple penetrating oil (like WD-40). This one from Ashburns. I let each half of the blade soak in each clean...

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

03-25-2015 10:40 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

I don’t have a lot of mileage on this bit but since they impressed me I put this review out for those who are currently looking for a router bit that they might need for a one time job and not have to pay nearly as much as for a standard name brand one. I will update this review over time if I begin to see any deviation from my initial thoughts. I’d seen these reviewed here before. Usually the reviews are mixed. I needed to make some small fluted moldings for a hutch. I didn...

After reading a number of reviews on this site I bought this machine last year from Calgarys location, and wanted to contribute back. I was looking to upgrade from a lunchbox planer and get more serious about this hobby by also acquiring a jointer, and I have a small shop so space is an issue. The main competitor I looked at was Rikon, which looked like a crude imitation of the A31 in person and seemed kind of clunky. Way cheaper but you generally get what you pay for with woodworking equipme...

Simple tool but its great at what it does

Simple tool but its great at what it does

This was a Christmas gift and this is the first time I had to use it today on the chop of my workbench I’m building. A sanding block is something that almost doesn’t deserve a review I think but I really like this. It’s size is perfect for straightening out an edge which is what I used it for today. It fits perfectly in the hand and I think this may reduce fatigue ‘cause I used the heck out of it and my arm was tired but not my hand. I wasn’t sure how well the...

The Mirka Deros Sander...  I LOVE IT!

The Mirka Deros Sander... I LOVE IT!

03-23-2015 07:22 PM by Joe Lyddon | 34 comments »

I LOVE it! This Mirka Deros 5 in. Random Orbit Sander wonderful! It works SO Effortlessly and Quietly it’s amazing! I also got the Hose... It would NOT connect to my Ridgid shop vac hose… a visit to Home Depot for a converter kit solved that problem! I also got some Abranet sanding disks and the Pad Savers. I had some very ROUGH slabs of Black Walnut to use as a Test piece. I had some 5 hole H&L sand paper disks. I was started with 60 grit 5 hole sandpap...

After a couple of months of turning I think I can write a decent review of my new Midi Lathe. To date I’ve only been practicing turning some spindles and learning to work with the “Easy Lathe Tools”. I just purchased a pen kit and some bottle stoppers to make as soon as my fingers heal from the band saw incident. I stopped in my local Woodcraft store to look at lathes and when I saw this one I just fell in love with it. I was very surprised to see a Rikon lathe with virtuall...

I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now, I got this one late last year and I use it quite a lot. For those of us that are numerically challenged, this is very useful for doing simple math in fractions. At least that’s what I use it for. It does a whole lot more that that, but for me it’s all about the fractions. Thanks for reading and have a great day. Wayne

I’ve been using this since about last November and I’m just now at the point that if I lost it I think I’d have to stop working until I got another one. Super simple to use, and I love the graduated pencil holes, it makes drawing a square referenced off of an edge a simple task that takes only a few seconds. What can I say, I love this thing. Wayne

It does it's job

I received this for Christmas and I just now had a chance to use it. I’m building a split top roubo workbench and had to put center marks on the chop and the leg. Very simple to use. The black print on stainless is easy to read, and there are holes laser cut into it for pencil marks. This is the first centering rule I’ve ever used, I know there are others out there, but I sure do like Incra’s stuff. Thanks for reading, and have a great day. Wayne
