Bavarian Steel Axe

Bavarian Steel Axe

07-03-2022 11:09 PM by VintageDan | 2 comments »

This is a great axe! I use it for Forest skills wood chopping and kindling making. It requires very lttle sharpening and the head is nicely weighted to take some effort out of the swing. I have a plastic blade cover but I want to fabricate a leather full head cover at some point. The best part was this only cost £25 with shipping on ebay. Well worth the money.

MicroJig BladeClean Saw Blade and Router Bit Cleaning System Review by Jeff Fleisher I have reviewed previous MicroJig products and recently had the opportunity to work with their new BladeClean system. BladeClean is a self-contained system to clean table saw circular blades and router bits. Many woodworkers do not clean their saw blades and router bits because it can be tedious and time consuming. They let grime build up on the teeth and bit edges which makes the edge cu...

A Canadian review of the Harvey C14 Ambassador Bandsaw

A Canadian review of the Harvey C14 Ambassador Bandsaw

06-15-2022 09:55 PM by jayoh | 9 comments »

This is my personal review of the Harvey Industries Ambassador C14 bandsaw. Normally the pros and cons would be after the dissertation; however, in order to be hopeful that prospective users and purchasers might be interested in the experience I’ve had, I have elected to put these at the very beginning. They’re not listed by any order of importance. *I am not an employee of Harvey Industries. The company has not supplied me with any financial remuneration for posting this detailed review. I p...

Efficient Use of Expensive Wood--Easy Layout Online Tool

Efficient Use of Expensive Wood--Easy Layout Online Tool

06-09-2022 12:24 AM by jayseedub | 5 comments »

I’m not sure how I discovered optiCutter.com—but it’s already saved me money. It’s super easy to input the kind of and dimensions of the sheet goods you’re using (you could use it for boards, too), add the dimensions and number of parts you’re cutting out, input your kerf width and… CALCULATE! Super quick, super efficient, very accurate and easy. You can get a free account, and that’s all I have—not sure I’d ever need a full...

It was a jointless purchase...

It was a jointless purchase...

Has anyone else purchased this jointer? I picked it up last October (2021) for the hard price of $450 (CAD). Having owned many Craftsman tools over the years.. I figured… what could go wrong?!? I have used it for two projects, rough estimate, 2 dozen passes, not including the out-of-the-box-test/play time passes. I should actually 1 and 7/8 projects. The last few ‘joints’ where completed on the table saw with a quick made shop jig. I read a little further into these...

Love the steel. Hate the handles.

Love the steel. Hate the handles.

05-29-2022 04:44 PM by Dave Polaschek | 17 comments »

Decided to write this review because I bonked my head on the bench again while bending over to pick up a chisel that had rolled to the floor again. The steel in these chisels is nice. And socket chisels are good in that it’s easy to remove and replace the handles, which I find I have to do with all of the smaller sizes (anything smaller than 1/2 inch) which tend to roll away if placed on a surface that isn’t completely level. Luckily, the fix is pretty easy. Pop the handle out (easy in ...

Great miter gauge but not without issue

Great miter gauge but not without issue

05-21-2022 11:52 PM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

I’ve had this miter gauge for a while and I’ve generally liked it really well, save for one thing: The nylon expansion discs don’t really work very well. Too much slop in the miter slot allowing it to move around too much. The problem: Incra made the milled recess exactly the same diameter as the expansion discs, and when you put in the countersunk screw that is supposed to push the disc apart, it can’t because one half of the disc is locked in by the milled rece...

TSG-FDC Overarm dust collector: Poorly designed hood—no better than the standard

TSG-FDC Overarm dust collector: Poorly designed hood—no better than the standard

05-15-2022 03:12 AM by Sark | 4 comments »

The standard included blade guard works just as well as the expensive add on dust collector hood as far as dust collection is concerned. From the SawStop manual: “The design of the blade guard creates such a powerful airstream that it effectively removes dust even without a vacuum system connected.” But’s that’s a quote about the standard included blade guard with a measly 1.25” port. Too bad this advanced design doesn’t apply to expensive add-on overarm dust collection sold by SawStop tha...

Pretty Good Circle Cutting Jig

Pretty Good Circle Cutting Jig

05-14-2022 11:16 PM by jayseedub | 1 comment »

Yeah, I know—I could make one of these myself—but I was interested in what I hoped would be both the versatility and precision of a manufacturer-made-and-designed jig. After using it for a few days I’m a little disappointed. It’s made well enough, and assembly was easy. Instructions were fine, but not great. It comes with everything you need, including a drill bit to drive your centering hole, a centering pin for your router’s setup, and even a screw to mou...

KP0800K 4.5 stars

04-27-2022 10:22 PM by 1thumb | 6 comments »

Nice little planer. High RPM rate (17000) to weight (5.7 lbs) Good balance. Ergonomically sound. Dial in depth gauge in front turns both counter and clockwise but depth only changes if turned clockwise. Also it goes past ‘0’ for some reason. Don’t like that. But the material removed is what dial says it will be. (-) .5 star for dial mechanism. $169 for planer, case, fence, blade gauge and wrench
