New And Improved Stumpy Nubs Box joint Jig

New And Improved Stumpy Nubs Box joint Jig

08-17-2014 11:43 PM by fl13 | 6 comments »

Recently I purchased plans from the Stumpy Nubs Website for his improved Box Joint jig. $10.00.I spent the better part of a Saturday putting it together despite some confusing instructions, not a big deal, still managed to construct a working jig, just using the photos .I have built other jigs in the past and have constructed a few Beehives . (bees have a way of fixing sloppy joints), still I wanted to construct some small boxes with tighter and more accurate joints.This jig does the trick. S...

After Market Table Saw Splitter, Shark Guard

After Market Table Saw Splitter, Shark Guard

08-15-2014 06:29 PM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

Worried about kickback on your table saw? Who isn’t really? Most if not all modern saws arrive with either a splitter or riving knife that prevents wood from pinching the back side of a table saw blade as the stock is run through the saw. This little piece of material pays dividends in preventing kickback. So if most saws come with such a device already installed, why write a review about an after market product? Because if you’re like me, you use vintage machinery. In my case...

Can't believe how smoothly this jigsaw cuts

Can't believe how smoothly this jigsaw cuts

08-15-2014 01:52 AM by CharlesA | 29 comments »

For years I had a Skil jigsaw, a hack tool if there ever was one. I got in the habit of always cutting well outside the line and then sanding down to the line because of the roughness of the cut, no matter the blade or cutting mode on that machine. I found this Bosch on the CPO website for about $95 18 months ago. The first thing I noticed was how big and hefty it was compared to the Skil I think that helps stabilize it on cuts. I’ve mainly used it for rough work. Yesterday I ...

Since home depot doesn’t like publishing a negative reviews that points out the obvious, I might as well review it here.So what we have here is a definite value. Drill with clutch, 5 1/2 inch saw not one but two entry level +1 lithium ion 18v batteries and a charger and all for just 79.00You can’t beat that.Batteries (although entry level) and charger alone cost more than that individually. The drill is nice with 24 position clutch setting and runs true no wobble like the yellow D drills.An...

SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers

SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers

08-11-2014 08:49 PM by Grumpymike | 13 comments »

SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers DVD (The Basics) Dave Richards, the narrator of this DVD, is an authorized SketchUp trainer and he draws plans for Fine Woodworking Magazine. A very talented man indeed; however, in his vast knowledge and computer skills he has forgotten that a huge percentage of his audience is in the well over 50 category that grew up with slide rules and mechanical adding machines long before the computer age. In Dave’s fast paced narration, he does not annunciate hi...

Review: ETS 125 EQ Random Orbital Finish Sander

Review: ETS 125 EQ Random Orbital Finish Sander

08-10-2014 02:54 AM by pashley | 20 comments »

REASON I BOUGHT A NEW SANDER: Sanding is not my favorite part of woodworking. I want the best result as quick as possible. I even considered getting a drum sander, but at $800+ and a chunk of floor space, I was reluctant. My DeWalt ROS would leave a lot of swirl marks, costing me time – in finding the swirls marks, and finding them after I started finishing! Also, the DeWalt would not do dust collection well. So, in an effort to finder better sanding down quicker with better dust collec...

Milwaukee Self Feed Bits

Milwaukee Self Feed Bits

08-09-2014 11:03 PM by natenaaron | 4 comments »

I am making something that needed a 1 3/8 inch hole cut. I whipped out the 1 3/8 hole saw I have and it was not big enough. After a quick measure it turns out it is NOT 1 3/8, so it was off to the hardware store. The only 1 3/8 hole cutting thing they had was an expensive Milwaukee self feeding bit. My choice was to spend the money and work on my project today, or order something and wait a week or so. I spent the money and I am glad I did. Being the anal type person I am, I always t...

Wood River #62 low angle Jack Plane

Wood River #62 low angle Jack Plane

08-09-2014 06:26 PM by Florida_Jim | 8 comments »

I’ve wanted a bevel up jack plane for a while. When Wood River brought out their #62, I agonized over paying extra for the lee valley. I have a V3, #4, #5, and a low angle block plane that I’m very happy with. I had a discount coupon so I bought the wood river #62. Out of the box, it was a beauty. The sole was flat, and the sides were dead on square. I bought an extra 25 degree blade, and the 40 degree blade. I polished, and sharpened the blades. I sharpened the 40, and one of the 25’s with a...

The good:Digital readout is a wonderful feature if you want to stack cutters on the spindle. However, you have to keep an eye on it because mine will creep even with the handwheel lock tightened. The bad:THE SHAPERat first glance I was excited to get this out of the crate and assembled because the fence looked so nice with all of the adjustment features. I was very very disappointed with this fence. it moves all over the place and by all over the place I mean the wings flex over an 1/8...

Anything less then the top name brands you are taking a gamble, some have good luck and some don’t, Myself I’ve to this day with all of the machinery that I’ve purchased from HF have had less then good luck as a matter of fact I’ve wasted more money buying crap from Harbor Freight then if I had just purchased the top name brand tools to begin with… With saying all of this you’d thunk I would’ve learned my lesson by now well this belt sander is the one...
