Bench Dog 62 Low Angle Manufacturing Quality Problems

Bench Dog 62 Low Angle Manufacturing Quality Problems

08-21-2019 02:52 PM by LakesideWoodworker | 3 comments »

I have been comparing LV, LN, Woodriver, and Benchdog Low Angle Jack Planes for some time. When Rockler had their Bench Dog plane on sale this month for $159, I thought I would give it a try. Out of the box, it looked very good. The certificate that accompanied the plane said the sole of the plane was flat and when checked with my steel straight edge, it appeared flat. I don’t have a granite stone to test for flatness. Also, using my Starrett combination square, the sides appeared sq...

Don't buy for use in a router table

Don't buy for use in a router table

08-20-2019 09:40 PM by Albert | 5 comments »

I bought this because it is claimed to be for use in a router table, when mounted it works for a short while then gets plugged with sawdust and will not raise/lower. I clean it and it is ok for a while thin needs cleaning again. I use silicone lube so it will not attract dust but…..... Milwaukee service was no help, they say I need a bigger dust collector, I think the way it is designed dust has to fall into the area between the motor housing and the shield.Anyone else have thi...

Review MrCool 24K DIY Mini Split HVAC

08-18-2019 10:31 PM by bigJohninvegas | 10 comments »

4th of July weekend of 2018, just over a year ago. I finished the install and had working A/C in my shop. Short overview of my shopI have a three car garage that is dedicated to a wood shop. No parking cars in here. about 600 square feet, and fully insulated. I did have a couple of professional HVAC estimates that proved to be outside of my budget. But those estimates showed me what size of system I needed, and the proper location in my shop to install it. So with a little more research...

Centerline drawer slides

Centerline drawer slides

08-18-2019 10:17 PM by BB1 | 3 comments »

First let me say that I have only built a very limited number of drawers so my experience with various slides is also limited (and somewhat frustrating). I have used some of the center mount type as well as the rather inexpensive ones from the big box stores. These Centerline slides were on sale at some point and so I bought three pair. I have installed them on two drawers in my router table stand and absolutely love them. They were easy to install and I found taking them in and out during t...

Nice, quiet, and probably too nice for a shop

Nice, quiet, and probably too nice for a shop

08-10-2019 01:55 PM by whope | 2 comments »

About a year ago, I decided that needed to get a real air cleaner for my shop. While poking around for reviews, I found a review of this Rabbit Air unit (mine is the 700 sub-model) on another woodworking website. It costs a bit more than the traditional air cleaners, but with the extra features, I decided it was worth it. It has 4 layers of filters, some you can clean, some you need to replace. You have a choice of the final filter and I went for the ‘toxins’ filter. Features I...

A decent table for the price

A decent table for the price

08-10-2019 01:24 PM by whope | 1 comment »

I had a shop built table that I generally liked. But it was heavy and came too close to the height adjustment crank. So when a friend of mine was helping me move the drill press and broke the table, I wasn’t terribly upset. So I was looking for a replacement and not having time or inclination to make one, I found this new release from Wood River. For $100, sure, why not. The table is reasonably nice. I prefer a taller fence as that provides something to hold narrow pieces against, so...

Yet another Delta 36-725 review

Yet another Delta 36-725 review

08-09-2019 03:47 PM by cmacnaughton | 17 comments »

I purchased the Delta 36-725 primarily based on reviews on this site, and due specifically to tinman’s review and setup instructions (https://www.lumberjocks.com/reviews/3822), which were invaluable when assembling and tuning the saw. Lowe’s delivered it and the box was pretty banged up, with styrofoam clearly visible through a couple of large tears in the cardboard so I was prepared for the worst. Fortunately, there was no damage to the saw itself. Assembly was a breeze. The blad...

Handy EDC (Everyday Chisel?) 18mm Pocket Chisel

Handy EDC (Everyday Chisel?) 18mm Pocket Chisel

07-09-2019 09:59 PM by Rich | 3 comments »

I first saw these advertised in Furniture & Cabinetmaking, a woodworking magazine published in the UK. As luck would have it the chisels were available on Amazon UK for shipping to the USA. I would have preferred a couple of millimeters wider blade, but, as is often the case on Amazon, the prices and shipping costs vary across different models of the same product and this one was a good price. At the time I bought this, it was $14.73 with $6.40 shipping. The quality is excellent. T...

Shaped cabinet scraper

Shaped cabinet scraper

07-07-2019 02:58 PM by MichaelT77 | 1 comment »

I had the need to hollow out one side of some small cherry boards so they would fit nicely over a curved frame for a box lid. See my “cherry box for motorcycle” project. I bought the Garlick cabinet scrapers at my local woodworking store. They are ready to work right out of the package, and I was astounded by the piles of wood curls I was producing. No dust. Haven’t tried sharpening them, yet.
