02-14-2010 12:02 AM by longgone | 18 comments »

Sandpaper is always a pain to store and organize. I previously had built a bulky and definitely not portable storage rack for my sandpaper. I saw this plastic file folder yesteday while in office Depot and a flourescent light bulb went off…but that’s a different story. For $10 this was a perfect solution for storing my sandpaper and making it easy to carry around to wherever I needed sandpaper. I addition to the 9×11” sheets I bought it for I can also put round orbital ...

Scissor Table

Scissor Table

I know there have been many praises and reviews for Simple Green to clean all kinds of saw blades but I read another praise in “Woodworkers Resource” about mixing Simple Green 1:4, 1 part Simple Green to 4 parts water. The author let the blades soak for 3 hours and said it worked as good or better than any other product for removing build up on saw blades. I have tried mineral spirits, paint thinner, gasoline, and just about everything else with small success, so I mixed up 1 gallon of Simpl...
