Weed torch

Weed torch

I know it’s not woodworking but this Harbor Freight weed torch works great, I bought the one with a igniter for $30 minus the 20% it was $26, don’t burn down your house.

If you want a great miter gauge

If you want a great miter gauge

I got the Kreg Miter gauge for my birthday, it’s great. I taught a segmented turning class at Woodcraft and I was going to show how to fix if your segments are not perfect, 1 cut 16 pieces and put them together and no gap, so much for that idea. It comes perfect from the factory, if you aren’t getting perfect angles your saw needs adjusting. It cuts accurately to a tenth of a degree, I highly recommend it.

Vacuum chuck

The Hold Fast vacuum chuck system is available individually or as a kit, I first bought the ventri first which is when hooked to an air compressor causes the vacuum that holds the bowl to the chuck. I planned to make the chuck and vacuum accessory because I have seen plans and videos on it. What a waste of time, I didn’t work. I then bought the accessory still thinking I could make the chuck, nope. I would have saved a bunch of money if I bought it as a kit, it’s we’ll worth...

Worksharp 3000

Worksharp 3000

I got the Worksharp 3000 for Christmas and I’m really impressed. It comes with 2 glass plates and 120, 400, 1000, and 3600 grit sandpaper, plus 1 slotted wheel with matching sandpaper. Chisel and plane blades slide in from underneath, it’s as hard to sharpen as an electric pencil sharpener. You can also sharpen from the top or there’s a free hand way to sharpen from underneath. It’s a fast and easy way to sharpen, you can also sharpen carving tools, I highly recommen...

Central pneumatic air sander

Central pneumatic air sander

I bought this sander at Harbor Freight for about $30, it works great for sanding bowls. It comes with sandpaper that you should just throw in the garbage, I use the New Wave brand of paper from Woodcraft, it a wave shaped paper so it doesn’t cut grooves in the bowls when it’s working the inside of the bowl. I have a 12 gallon air compressor and it can keep up if i only sand about 3 to 5 minutes. The only problem is the exhaust blows cold air on your hand.
