Yep, I got taken. Well, to be fair, I received what I paid for. Perhaps you’ve heard the siren-song of woodworkers showing how you can quit your day job and make $150K per year selling stuff you make in your shop. Well, against my better judgment, in a weak moment I paid the $37 for the book and plans download. If you didn’t have access to the internet and you’d never seen a woodworking forum, then MAYBE there may be some new ideas in here. If you’re a member of this f...

Magic Molder—A Safe and Professional Molder Head System

Magic Molder—A Safe and Professional Molder Head System

09-14-2014 10:46 PM by HillbillyShooter | 15 comments »

The Magic Molder System consists of a molder head and cutter plugs. Although not inexpensive, Magic Molder constitutes a truly safe and professional system for using your table saw (or radial arm saw if so inclined) as a shaper for cutting molding profiles. There are three primary features that make this system head and shoulders above the previous molder head I acquired 30 plus years ago—one I’ll humorously describe as a “cubby, Ninja star.” First, the Magic Molder is the safest des...

A few months ago I posted a review of some Kimberly-Clark Nitrile Gloves that I really liked. In the responses, several folks discussed their love of Harbor Freight nitrile gloves. I hardly ever go there, but today I needed to drop by and so I picked up some of these 5 mil gloves (they offer 3, 5, 7, and 9). I didn’t want them to be thin like the ones at the drug store (3) or as thick as some others I’d picked up (7), so I thought I would try the 5 mil model. In doing some pai...

Works well with some limitations

After Dylan's review of this item as a Rockler sale item ($35 at the moment), I decided to pick one up b/c I thought I was close to buying a jointer off of Cralgslist. The Good:1) Pretty straightforward assembly and adjustability2) Rolls easily3) roll/stationary lever is pretty easy to use and definitely better than the Harborfreight style where one has to screw down the stationary supports when you don’t want it to roll. 4) Everything to assemble it is included The Not So Good:1...

This review is for the Aqua Coat clear grain filler. http://aquacoat.com/products/clear-grain-filler They also make a clear wood putty/filler I haven’t tried. Right now this stuff is $17.95 for a pint. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this stuff. I’m on my second can now. I’ve used it on several tables made from oak and walnut. After getting crud embedded in the grain after finishing one too many times I finally started using a grain filler. I picked t...

Makita MAC5200: A very well designed easy to use compressor! My shop used to run on a multi-thousand dollar Ingersoll rand 120 gallon 7 horse power 3 phase, 2 stage compressor circa 1969. We stopped using it for spray painting back in the late 1980’s so it’s been overkill for decades.It’s finally on it’s way out, and at the same time our portable Porter Cable Job Boss C3151 has died. Some of my review will directly compare the Makita MAC5200 and the PC Job Boss a...

Despite being kind to me, 4 years of use has been unkind to this compressor

Despite being kind to me, 4 years of use has been unkind to this compressor

09-08-2014 04:10 PM by paxorion | 11 comments »

If there’s one tool I use every time I try to get any woodworking done, it’s my HF air compressor. Everytime I get any woodworking done at home, the first tool I fire up is my compressor. I purchased it on a whim 4 years ago, and was giddy to have pneumatic power for the first time. This bare bones unit has (and continues) to serve it’s duty, driving nails (I have a HF 18 gauge brad nailer/stapler) and blowing compressed air. There isn’t much to say about how well ...

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

09-07-2014 08:14 PM by CharlesA | 23 comments »

I’m not that good at wearing the disposable dust masks that I have. I just don’t like them. So, I end up not wearing them all the time. I was reading one of Bill Pentz's pieces on dust collection, and he emphasized how importance it was to wear a good dust mask and recommended this 3M 7500 series mask (7501 is small, 7502 is medium, 7503 is large—I use the medium). I assumed it was really expensive. Turns out that to buy the mask and a set of 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Car...

Expensive but Awesome

Expensive but Awesome

09-03-2014 11:23 PM by Manitario | 9 comments »

I hate emptying the bin on my cyclone, but I hate even more when I forget to and fill my filters with dust and chips; basically means an evening wasted cleaning out chips from the filters and then multiple rounds of blowing the fine dust out. I have my cyclone in its own room to keep the noise down so I can’t see the bin…I originally had a Oneida Dust Sentry, it was ok but was inconsistent. After moving to a new shop and filling the filters 3 times in a row, I looked for an altern...
