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...

Heat Treating Heaven!

Heat Treating Heaven!

04-09-2016 01:04 AM by Ripthorn | 6 comments »

I like to build tools, but the most frustrating part is usually heat treating the parts that need it. I have been using MAPP gas, but with one of the old style brass torch heads. I have a 1 1/2” wide, 1/4” thick, 3 1/2” long iron that needs heat treatment and I decided enough was enough and I went to HD and bought this torch. A couple things surprised me about it: - All metal construction, save the two knobs. The black part is not plastic, like I thought it might be.- ...

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

04-08-2016 08:40 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

I got a Rockler Gift card for Christmas this past year (yay!), which means I finally had no excuse to not buy the State Park Font template set I have been wanting. And for the most part it was exactly what I was expecting. HOWEVER two issues… #1. Do NOT use the tempate in the manner shown by Rockler. Your router base WILL hang on it, and if you give too much pressure it can hop up and ram the bit through whatever is in the way. #2. The brass bushing that came with mine is defectiv...

Lt 14 bx by Laguna

Lt 14 bx by Laguna

04-07-2016 10:58 AM by bob101 | 6 comments »

The day has come to upgrade , and after several months of research I decided to go with the Laguna Lt14BX bandsaw. First reason I went with this saw is motor size , this is a 2.5 hp motor on a 14” saw ! Second the fact that it can resaw 13” high boards, lastly even though it is manufactured overseas it is all Laguna ( ceramic guides, pyramid spine, very heavy steel and the fit and finish is impeccable . The other big draw for me was that Laguna uses a ceramic blade guide system i...

Awesome HVLP system

Awesome HVLP system

04-05-2016 12:09 PM by stlwood | 11 comments »

With an upcoming kitchen remodel looming, I decided to bite the bullet and get a quality spray finishing system. After much research, I narrowed my options down to one of the Fuji 4-stage systems. I went back and forth between the mini-mite 4 and the Q4 systems. In the end I decided that the nearly $300 premium was more than I wanted to pay for the noise reduction features of the Q4 (plus I wear hearing protection for most of the power tools in my shop anyway). I’m happy with this...

I can see not wanting to work without it in my future

I can see not wanting to work without it in my future

04-05-2016 03:06 AM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I scratched an old itch a couple of weeks ago and bought a Domino. I’m making a bed frame and this was the perfect project for this tool. Lots of slats and rails, lots of domino joints. It needed a slight calibration out of the box but was pretty easy to do, and has been a real force multiplier in saving me lots of time. I still have a ways to go on it and the domino work is mostly done, but it really has surpassed all of my expectations. It really is simple to use and as accurate you w...

D-Way Beading and Point/Teardrop Tool Review

D-Way Beading and Point/Teardrop Tool Review

04-04-2016 01:52 PM by JimChrisawn | 2 comments »

I wanted to share a brief review and some information on a few tools from Dave at D-Way tools. Let me begin by saying I have in no way been compensated for this review. The tools I am reviewing were purchased by me at Daves website at full price. I would like to begin with the beading tools. Dave makes five sizes of beading tools. There are a lot of different beading tools on the market and I have tried a few of them, but these are standouts! They are used flute down and are made of excell...

Awesome machine for the $$

Awesome machine for the $$

04-02-2016 10:05 PM by TOMTOMHouston | 3 comments »

Was looking for a solid bench top belt sander for a reasonable price. Found this at Lowes for 179. Well made, no vibration adequate tables ( hey it’s a sander)well packed and a snap to assemble. Fit and finish is good industrial style . Low noise. Easily adjusted belt tracking. Fits right up to my Rigid 2 1/2 shop vac hose for excellent dust control. Just spent 2 hours sanding 114 pine blocks all edges, machine didn’t event get warm. I don’t think there is a bett...
