Another Bright shop equipment…

01-15-2021 09:34 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 11 comments »

Boys and Girls, There have been a number of illuminating reviews made recently and I thought I’d shed some light on this workshop addition. Many of us possess some bargain basement cordless 18V Ryobi tools and if they are in anyway operational, you will have at least one battery and if you are not a total penny pincher, may even own a few extra ones,(just don’t leave on the charger… they charge and then run down). If you happen to own a 18V Ryobi battery, read on… If you ...

Pen mandrel to turn to...

Pen mandrel to turn to...

11-08-2020 01:55 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

Boys and Girls, If you are not into pen making, this may not be of interest to you. If you have a bucketload of mandrels, bushings and live centres read on at your own peril. You may think I’ve been beating the crap out of C19 lately, you are wrong… I can’t beat it but can blame it for everything. However, this time I have to give it some slack… While C19 lockup has inundated me with spams (not the edible type), I have this propensity to react adversely (at the expense of my wal...

Bessey Upgrade... cause I can!

Bessey Upgrade... cause I can!

10-26-2020 05:10 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 19 comments »

Boys and Girls, If you happen to be a Bessey clamp tragic or pay homage to the quality gods, this may be of interest and just skip to the next paragraph, otherwise you can save me time by not wasting the review and force me to translate into ”Philistineese”… and may I bid you French Moses. I had the pleasure of spending a few+ shekels in buying and eventually reviewing Bessey K-Body Revo Vario Clamps... If you read the review, you may be under the apprehension that I love t...

Eliminate Chucking a Routing Fit

Eliminate Chucking a Routing Fit

09-30-2020 03:59 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 14 comments »

Boys and Girls, This review follows up reviews by harry1 and GaryK …Both were posted circa 2009 and I thought its time to resurrect the product for all the new members over the last 11 years that may not have ferreted through the archives looking for this little gem and the old (sorry, long serving) members that can’t remember. I don’t profess to know the real manufacturer/pattent-holder, as in one of the above reviews it was attributed to Whiteside, however, my purchases were mad...

Elementary Dear Wats on Thread

Elementary Dear Wats on Thread

09-14-2020 01:08 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 17 comments »

Boys and Girls Father’s day has just passed in Australia, however, that doesn’t mean there’s no Father’s Day in the US some day in the future and you can put this on your wish list or do yourself a favour, have quite a few drinks, order it online, go to bed and it’ll be a surprise present when you sober up later. This “tool” is not a must have but fall into the bloody handy asset category especially if you believe there are more than 1/4” nuts and bolts in the world. I purchase...

Milling for a "Written-Word" creator.

Boys and Girls, This is not going to be your normal sane review and if your pure intention is restricted to a singular presentation and you hate reading as much as I do… this Woodpecker Pen Mill is a great boon to pen making and in my opinion deserves a 4 star rating… have a nice day, keep safe and good-bye. If you kiddies are wondering why it didn’t deserve a Hi 5 rating, then read on. Why anyone would turn (pun intended) to pen making has me beat as there are far too many people ou...

UJK Parf Guide System - Mk. II

UJK Parf Guide System - Mk. II

08-29-2020 05:44 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 15 comments »

Boys and Girls, Many of you may have heard of the UJK Parf Guide System reviewed by Bobmedic and for those that haven’t, you belong to the, other many ”have not heard of”, category.Now I’m sure many of the have heard (and nearly all of the ”not heard”) will belong to the new “have not heard”, of the revised Mk.II upgrade… and if you found that hard to follow, try writing it 3 times quickly. All you purists out there would classify this as a false review as I haven’t ph...

Boys and Girls, This is my response to pottzy’s review of the Bosch Dual-Mode Orbital sander. I couldn’t make a supportive comment as I haven’t experienced a Bosch attack and it would have been totally unfair to say anything negative, so I decided to back up my opinion with this ”review“ of the Fe$tool ROTEX. Yes, it is expensive(er), as I spell it with the $, however, just remember you cannot buy a Rolls in Kmart, unless it’s a baloney roll. Rather than go into all the pros ...

Boys and Girls, Young Patron did a review on this little gem back in 2011, which according to my majuvla (Ivan) calculator is approx. 09 years ago (OK., the leading 0 is exactly as per my calculator’s display… no approx. there maj’). With age, Patron’s posts has percolated down to the pits of archival obscurity and I thought it may be time to herald its existence to all you unfortunates that haven’t had the pleasurable encounter. A friend also needed use of it, whi...

"Small" item, big grunt, bigger price.

"Small" item, big grunt, bigger price.

Boys and Girls, Recently I made a box for my new Milwaukee trimmer and hacked together a video on using my Frontline Clamps for making the panels for the box. I thought that to give closure to the topic I should write up some kind of review on the trimmer. To spare some people the pain of reading (ugh), most will pull the ripcord when I mention the cost of $365 (Aust) for just the skin…. BYE… BYe… Bye… bye… by… b… … Anyone still there? When I first read a review about this trimmer I...
