Isometric Drawing Paper

Isometric Drawing Paper

905 days ago by tenontim | 19 comments »

For all of you pencil, paper, I don’t have time to learn SketchUp, hard heads like me, I found a nice little resource on the web. It’s isometric drawing paper, for hand drawing 3d sketches. You can buy this paper already printed, but I found several sites that let you download and print your own, as you need it. The site athttp://www.customgraph.com/piart.php?art=587 has the best set up that I found, since you can change the perimeters and line colors. Give it a try, for more ...

Byrd Shelix Planer Head Retro

Byrd Shelix Planer Head Retro

984 days ago by tenontim | 8 comments »

Decided to upgrade my 15” Grizzly planer to the Byrd shelix head. This head not only has the helical design, but the inserts are set at an angle to cause a shear cut to the wood, which will cut down on tear out and give a smoother cut. The cost of replacing the standard blades was beginning to get my attention, so if these index-able, 4 sided, carbide inserts hold up as advertised, I should be saving some money. I bought this planer head through Grizzly, which is on sale right now f...

Trend T4 Plunge Router

Trend T4 Plunge Router

1830 days ago by tenontim | 12 comments »

I bought one of these routers about 10 months ago. It’s the first and only plunge router that I own, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I guess the thing that I like the most is the size to power ratio. I think it’s listed at about 8 lbs and puts out just over 1 HP. It’s very well made and easy to operate, with it’s variable speed motor and smooth plunge mechanism. It has a plunge stop with 3 different settings. Comes with a very nice oversize guide, ...

Jorgensen 7200 Series Bar Clamp

Jorgensen 7200 Series Bar Clamp

1836 days ago by tenontim | 8 comments »

I’ve been upgrading my clamp collection, to include these 7200 series bar clamps, by Jorgensen. I had a couple of older Jorgensen clamps, and was happy with them. They were a quality product. Recently, I purchased a dozen of the 36” bar clamps, to replace the bar clamps that I normally use for my table top glue ups. The first time I used these clamps, I had the clutch plates on 4 clamps break. One clamp broke all 5 clutches at the same time. I was quite disappointed, since t...

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

2330 days ago by tenontim | 8 comments »

I use my planer and jointer constantly and I try to keep a sharp set of blades in each one. A couple of years ago I found Global Tooling, http://globaltooling.bizhosting.com/index.html on the internet, and couldn’t believe the prices they got for their blades. I thought that even if they were just throw aways, it would be worth the test run. “Knives are made from T1-High Speed Steel (18% Tungsten steel), 63 Rc hardened and finish ground to super sharp edge. Also offered Carbide ...
