During a Woodworking Show, I saw the merit of ruler stops and cabinetmaker rulers for my layout. I impulse buy for a WoodPeckers Rule Stop-1 (the smaller brother of the Rule Stop-2 review that gave me the motivation to get to writing this review) and eventually decided that $30 was too much money to splurge. After waltzing over to the Lee Valley/Veritas booth, I spotted this Veritas Ruler Stop in their catalog and I figured it would be a good alternative. I picked this up and a 12”...

Another Woodworking Rule Accessory

Another Woodworking Rule Accessory

01-10-2015 08:58 PM by scarpenter002 | 2 comments »

I purchased this Hook Stop along with a 36” Woodworking rule. (Rule reviewed here.) This stop can be attached to the end of several y Woodpecker Woodworking Rules with the included screws and hex wrench. It is milled to perfectly mate with the Woodpecker Rule, tightly affixing to it. I have only used this accessory once so far, but expect it to perform as well as other Woodpecker products. Thanks for reading.

Nice Addition to the Woodworking Rule

Nice Addition to the Woodworking Rule

01-10-2015 08:51 PM by scarpenter002 | 2 comments »

I purchased this Rule Stop along with a 36” Woodworking rule. (Rule reviewed here.) This stop can be easily slid onto any Woodpecker Woodworking Rule of up to 2 1/4” wide. It is milled to perfectly mate with the Woodpecker Rule, tightly affixing to it. I have only used this accessory once so far, but expect it to perform as well as other Woodpecker products. Thanks for reading.

Same Quality as other Woodpecker Measuring and Layout Products

Same Quality as other Woodpecker Measuring and Layout Products

01-10-2015 08:41 PM by scarpenter002 | 0 comments »

Just received this product about two weeks ago. As with other Woodpecker products, I got this on sale as part of their weekly specials sent to their Eclub members. It is made of thick Aluminum, making it sturdy, yet light weight. There are measurements on both sides of the blade. One side is a standard scale from 0” to 36” in 1/16” graduations (see photo 2). The other side is Center scale, 18” to 0” to 18”, also in 1/16” graduations (see photo 3). ...

Cheap!!!...... but with potential

Cheap!!!...... but with potential

Okay I know what your thinking…..Harbor Freight really? Here’s the back story, I a run a small Pro woodworking Biz specializing in antique repro, custom furniture, and other Artisanal product. I’ve found a niche I needed to fill in my equipment roster, that hopefully will save me a bit of time and therefore money on one of my products( that I do alot of). The problem….after much research….. NO ONE makes what I need. So I had two choices either make what I wanted ...

Another Great Woodpecker Product

Another Great Woodpecker Product

I purchased this set of squares of few months ago, when it was on sale as part of their weekly specials sent to their Eclub members. The set arrives in custom MDF case. I will not be utilizing the case, as I have custom brackets made to hold these. These are made of thick Aluminum, making them sturdy, yet light weight. There are measurements on both the inside and outside of the blade. The inside measurements start at the notch of the square, allowing easy measurement on projects. A c...

Good Plane for the Money

Good Plane for the Money

01-09-2015 08:52 AM by mramseyISU | 3 comments »

I’ve had this plane for about 6 months now so I think that’s enough time using it to make up my mind. I picked this up on a trip to Rockler, I hadn’t planned on buying it but I had been wanting a No 4. Out of the box I justs tried it out on some white oak and with just a couple adjustments it was working great. When I did flatten the sole it took maybe a dozen passes on 220 sandpaper stuck down to my table say. Way less effort than any vintage stanley I’ve ever tuned u...

Ray Iles plane irons

Ray Iles plane irons

01-08-2015 01:19 PM by mafe | 10 comments »

Ray Iles plane irons Really wonderful irons, thicker than standard app 3mm (left) instead of the normal 2mm (right).I choose the O1 carbon steel hardened to RC59-61, this is easy to touch up. Comes in a protection pack and blade end are dipped in wax.Before using it, I gave it a hone, this because I like to be able to compare with what I usually do. Since it’s thicker you might have to move the frog or open the mouth a wee bit on you plane. I have been using the iro...

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

01-06-2015 02:28 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

As usual, I’ll give you a teaser and you can check out the rest of the review on my blog. Here’s the gist. For 95% of woodworkers out there this saw is it. It’s a feature packed saw that does a lot of stuff well but falls just a little short in others. For the price, you can’t beat it. I really wanted to absolutely love with saw and have no faults with it, but since it’s a sliding miter saw there is going to be some amount of play. The slop that was in ...

WorkSharp WS3000 Makes Sharpening a Breeze

WorkSharp WS3000 Makes Sharpening a Breeze

01-04-2015 06:41 PM by IHRedRules | 14 comments »

I’ve slowly been getting into woodworking over the last couple years. Since I began purchasing planes and chisels, I would just use them as-is, right out of the box. I had a fear that if I tried to sharpen them, I’d manage to somehow screw them up. Last month when I was in Sears, I found a WorkSharp WS3000 in the clearance section. It was completely sealed in the box and was $109 and change. I finally had a chance to put it to work, so I sharpened a cheap TSC set of chisels f...
