The Rikon 10-345, 18 inch Bandsaw

The Rikon 10-345, 18 inch Bandsaw

03-31-2015 12:43 PM by ncdon | 8 comments »

It’s been about 6 weeks since I picked up my new saw so I’ve had some time to create saw dust with it. The Rikon 18 replaced a PC 14 which I’ve used for several years.First impressions. This saw is big, it’s heavy, so if you bring one home, have a friend or two handy. My saw was well packed in it’s shipping crate and had no damage. Assembly amounted to mounting the table, assembling the fence and mounting some hand wheels. Tuning is well covered in the owner...

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

03-29-2015 02:24 AM by woodenwarrior | 15 comments »

I’m pretty certain I’m going to catch crap for posting this product for review because it’s not necessarily a woodworking product but I believe that once you hear me out you’ll think twice and be willing to give the product a try. Every wood worker gets boo-boos. It’s in the nature of our passion. I have yet to find a band-aid like product that will sufficiently cover the wound and stay stuck while still being able to use my hands in the motions I require whe...

An amazing help experience

An amazing help experience

03-28-2015 06:35 PM by andy_P | 2 comments »

This is probably not necessary because I am sure you more experienced and knowledgeable woodworkers have run across this site already. I had a problem with a keyless entry lock that I had purchased from ACE but was unable to find the “Helpful Hardware Man” when I ran into problems setting up the codes. The instructions were written in broken Chinese and even my wife, who knows all, wasn’t able to figure it out. Since the “Helpful Hardware Man” was unable to ...

Love this little thing.

Love this little thing.

I purchased arbortech’s contour Random orbit sander. I build a lot of maloof style furniture and this little baby is a life and time saver. If you watch the YouTube video made by arbortech. There is no BS. It works as advertised. The rubber head can be replaced if needed (15-20 dollars). It is made well and with a little care will out last me. It uses sticky back paper which you can order from arbortech or do like me buy 5 or 6 inch discs and with a sharp pair of scissors make your...

WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane

WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane

03-26-2015 02:44 PM by Redoak90 | 11 comments »

I bought the WoodRiver #62 a few weeks ago and I have really enjoyed using it. Out of the box it requires a little tuning but only 30 minutes or so. The blades were not sharp at all and they were not flat either. Using DMT diamond stones coarse and fine then a leather strop the blades sharpened up quickly and hold an edge all day. The sides are square and the sole is reasonably flat. There was a slight hollow in the sole but I was able to remove it by running it along a 4”x36”...

Great Pinner for the price!

Great Pinner for the price!

03-26-2015 01:15 PM by TMH | 4 comments »

I purchased this Pinner for use on this Project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/139721. The Pinner worked great right out of the box. I purchased from Amazon for $29.98 after reading all the good reviews (4.5 stars). I didn’t want to spend a lot of money and this fit the bill. Works flawless so far after over 100 pins. I also purchased Porter-Cable PN23Pp nail kit to qualify for free shipping. (the gun is pretty worthless without pins) As stated in the Amazon reviews, once the s...

Review of Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner

Review of Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner

03-25-2015 04:26 PM by Lee | 15 comments »

After reading so many good things about this product, I decided to try it myself. I did a comparison using the Trend Tool and Bit cleaner and just some penetrating oil that I was using before. First pic shows a saw blade that I’ve chosen to try the Trend on first. 2nd pic shows how I divided up the saw, into two sides. One side I cleaned with the Trend, and the other with just simple penetrating oil (like WD-40). This one from Ashburns. I let each half of the blade soak in each clean...

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

03-25-2015 10:40 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

I don’t have a lot of mileage on this bit but since they impressed me I put this review out for those who are currently looking for a router bit that they might need for a one time job and not have to pay nearly as much as for a standard name brand one. I will update this review over time if I begin to see any deviation from my initial thoughts. I’d seen these reviewed here before. Usually the reviews are mixed. I needed to make some small fluted moldings for a hutch. I didn...

Good product and service

Good product and service

After reading a number of reviews on this site I bought this machine last year from Calgarys location, and wanted to contribute back. I was looking to upgrade from a lunchbox planer and get more serious about this hobby by also acquiring a jointer, and I have a small shop so space is an issue. The main competitor I looked at was Rikon, which looked like a crude imitation of the A31 in person and seemed kind of clunky. Way cheaper but you generally get what you pay for with woodworking equipme...

Simple tool but its great at what it does

Simple tool but its great at what it does

03-23-2015 11:28 PM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

This was a Christmas gift and this is the first time I had to use it today on the chop of my workbench I’m building. A sanding block is something that almost doesn’t deserve a review I think but I really like this. It’s size is perfect for straightening out an edge which is what I used it for today. It fits perfectly in the hand and I think this may reduce fatigue ‘cause I used the heck out of it and my arm was tired but not my hand. I wasn’t sure how well the...
