The Workbench Book

The Workbench Book

12-22-2020 03:59 AM by BillGo | 3 comments »

I was talking to someone on another channel and this book came up. I thought I would post a review of it here so more people could see it. I think this is a great reference book for workbenches. The author has done a great job researching the history, and background for how workbenches have been used through history, the purpose of them, and the important factors to consider when coming up with the perfect bench for your needs. Things like: – What kind of work you want to do ̵...

Push Sticks not only keep you safe but help you get a quality cut. Design, fu...

Rohm 871053 Type 136 Supra 13 Keyless Drill Chuck

Rohm 871053 Type 136 Supra 13 Keyless Drill Chuck

06-11-2018 06:28 PM by PPK | 18 comments »

I have a WEN drill press, that came with a Chinese no-brand chuck. The chuck was wobbling and I had enough run-out that it would shake the whole work piece and vibrate like nobody’s business. I knew this could be a possibility with the DP I bought, but that’s another topic; I’m reviewing the chuck not the DP. (I really like the DP now that I have a good chuck, in case you were wondering) This chuck is about 1/2” capacity (It’s Geman, so it’s all Metric)....

At Last I have a Drum Sander

At Last I have a Drum Sander

07-07-2017 05:27 PM by jaxx | 3 comments »

Its been a long time since I posted a review however, my woodworking is still my passion. In order to make quality projects the need for accuracy increases , start with flat and square timber and you are nearly there especially at glue up time. So after months of thought and research I decided on the 3156 drum sander from Lombarte Spain. 560mm wide drum 132mm diameter 2hp motor c/w wheeled stand and table extensions For sure its Far East made and near exact to the Jet 2244 however n...

Winky-Lift Router Lift by Winky's Woodworking LLC

Winky-Lift Router Lift by Winky's Woodworking LLC

10-06-2016 03:16 AM by Mork | 36 comments »

This review is of a product I am selling (can I review my own product?) I need to get this information out there and so far my relatively small business doesn’t have the budget that allows mass marketing and advertising. This router lift is completely unique in that it mounts in the cabinet below the the table rather than to the bottom of the table top (or inset). The biggest advantage to this design is that it can be used in a lift top router table! Yep… no more bending ov...

Entertaining, occasional rambling,  sometimes Jay is hard to hear

Entertaining, occasional rambling, sometimes Jay is hard to hear

10-04-2016 09:31 PM by Woodknack | 7 comments »

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. This is my 3rd woodworking related podcast. [A note about the rating … There is no reason this isn’t a 4 or 5 star podcast depending on the criteria. Since the name is, The Woodworking Podcast, I feel obligated to review it as such and relative to the 360 or Shop Talk podcasts which have stronger woodworking content and standalone. Some of you wi...

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

08-22-2016 01:26 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I thought about blogging this, but didn’t know if that was the right spot to put it. Here’s my shameless plug for using paste wax/car wax for woodworking! I am not particular to one brand over another. They all work quite well. The main thing that makes them good is the carnauba wax. This is a really tough wax that stays in place for a long(er) amount of time. I use car wax on my steel surfaces, such as my tablesaw, jointer, bandsaw, etc. This protects them from rust, and...

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet - vintage book review

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet - vintage book review

12-10-2014 06:18 AM by Woodknack | 2 comments »

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet is a book of illustrations detailing everything you should have, could have, or did, learn about woodworking in your high school industrial arts program. [TLDR version: fledgling woodworkers should get a copy of this book or read it online for free.] Ever wanted to predict which way a stick of lumber will warp? Curious why heartwood is more stable than sapwood? Cramlet crams much useful information about how trees grow, why and how lumber warps, how t...
