Product: 024103 5-Inch by 8 Hole 180 Grit Premium Plus C Weight Paper Hook and Loop Discs, 25-PackRegular price: $11.52, or about 46¢ per disc. The picture is after 30-40 seconds of sanding poplar and about 50% of the grit is gone. The consolation is I only paid $4.05 for the box.

Track Saw

Track Saw

04-16-2016 04:43 AM by Steve | 7 comments »

Used my Festool track saw Model TS-75-EQ for the first time today. This is by far the very best tool that is in my collection. If I could give it a 10 out of 5 that would be my rating. I have a good quality 10” Cabinet saw, General Canada and the cut from that compared to the Festool does not even compare. I had cut a couple pieces of 3/4” cabinet grade plywood with Maple veneer at 21-1/2” on my cabinet saw and when the pieces were stacked together you could feel a sli...

Good measurements, a bit of a break in period. (Updated review)

Good measurements, a bit of a break in period. (Updated review)

04-15-2016 04:08 PM by dbhost | 10 comments »

Earlier this week, I picked up one of these calipers as the battery on my old Neiko caliper had died and I wasn’t sure how to find a replacement (Since figured it out, but having a spare caliper can be a good thing!) Simply put, comparing this against my known good Neiko 01412A Pro-Quality Digital Caliper with LCD Screen and Standard/Metric/Fraction Conversion, Stainless Steel 6” caliper (as verified against a mess of higher end known good calipers and standards). The Pittsb...

Not Precisely Precision

Not Precisely Precision

04-15-2016 02:15 AM by TheMrWoody | 10 comments »

I have many Rockler products in my workshop and I’m generally pleased with their accuracy. This router table insert replaced a Rockler Pro Plate so I could install a new 3 HP Porter Cable. I found the mechanical system to be exceptionally well made and the top plat is an excellent thickness to avoid any deflection. The adjustment mechanism is easy to use and the clamping system for the motor is very good. Where this device gets and “F” rating is on the insert (see the pics showing the gap ...

Laguna Compact Shaper 4 Speed 3HP, Model MSHAP4SPD-3-0130

Laguna Compact Shaper 4 Speed 3HP, Model MSHAP4SPD-3-0130

04-12-2016 03:48 AM by JBrow | 5 comments »

Requirements and Order. Woodworking is a hobby. A long time ago I considered a spindle shaper but committed to the router table. A little over a year ago, I decided to upgrade the router table. The found the upgrades I wanted to make would be costly and a lot of time to put into effect. That led me to researching spindle shapers. The Laguna Compact Shaper 4 Speed 3HP 1Ph (MSHAP4SPD-3-0130) was my choice. I ordered it from M&M Tool Parts. Receipt & Set Up. The shaper arrived...

Great book for ideas & inspiration

Great book for ideas & inspiration

04-11-2016 10:43 PM by Tooch | 2 comments »

I just picked up this book for $25 yesterday at my local Rockler, and I must say it will be worth every penny. Just leafing through the pages while I was still in the store gave me at least a dozen ideas for new additions I can make to my shop to keep it running smoother, safer, and more organized. The thing that really impressed me was how comprehensive the text is. Despite the fact that each idea is very raw, (not really detailing much about the builds), the illustrations are more than ...

My go-to T track hold down

My go-to T track hold down

04-11-2016 03:56 PM by GregD | 2 comments »

Not much to say. The T-Track Hold Downs from Peachtree Woodworking work very well. They are very easy to operate with one hand. The large brass disks don’t mar the work-piece when pressure is applied. And as a bonus I don’t have to give up any capacity on my cross cut and jointing jigs for the table saw; even if the work-piece extends to the edge of the jig, the foot of these hold downs can still reach under and grab the T-track.

A multi tool blade that makes a difference.

A multi tool blade that makes a difference.

04-11-2016 05:05 AM by devann | 10 comments »

Having used a multi-tool for a few years now I’ve come to really like this tool. My first time using was during a home remodel and I encountered a situation where I needed a notch but was afraid of the damage that a reciprocating saw would do. A chisel wasn’t an option so I bought me a cordless multi-tool that was compatible with my cordless tool batteries. I’ve since learned a 1001 uses for these things, the name really does fit. Along the way I’ve also learned abo...

Dustless Hand Sanding

Dustless Hand Sanding

04-10-2016 10:52 PM by AandCstyle | 2 comments »

I have pretty good dust collection in my shop until it comes to hand sanding. Then there has been no dust collection at the point of creation and the air filter goes full blast over my head. However, that means that the dust I create goes right by my nose and I wake up coughing during the night. Today, that changed! This ergonomically shaped Mirka Abranet Vac Block sanding block with built in dust collection collected the dust so well that I couldn’t smell the walnut I was working...

I’m working on a box project , and I am making up the plan as I go. I’m right at the point where I’m thinking, How am I going to put this together? This is normal for me. I’ve got parts cut and glued together, and I need to connect 2 of the 3 main sections. I’m way past the point of doing any kind of joinery. I have a subscription to Woodsmith Magazine. I think it’s the best. In the current issue ( Vol. 38 Issue 224) is a review of some of their favorit...
