Dead Nuts Accurate Squares

Dead Nuts Accurate Squares

04-30-2021 06:40 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I like the idea of fixed reference squares for tool setup and building crosscut sleds etc. Adjustable squares are great for everyday project work, but I also need fixed squares for precisely 90 degree settings. In use, these squares have really fit the bill. I didn’t know if they’d be more shop art than anything else, but I pull them down on a daily basis. The case is a great way to store, display and protect them. They can be a little large for some tasks, and I still reach ...

one of our members dw (desert woodworker) posted this a couple months ago,when i saw it i went and ordered immediately. it wasn’t yet available and i just got it yesterday.it is made to attach to woodpeckers lifts with two threaded knobs but can be retrofitted to any lift by simply drilling and threading a couple holes. a real simple guard that eliminates a starter pin.has a 2-1/2” opening that you can just plug your shop vac into.trying it out id say it sucked up a good 98% perce...

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...

The 32” CLAMP RACK-IT SYSTEM includes a 32” base plate, 3 large arm sets (13” long), 2 small arm sets (10” long), and the necessary hardware – current price $155 + shipping.

Summary: While the overall unit is quite sturdy, I gave this 3 stars due to some MAJOR shipping mistakes an...

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...

Woodpecker's Misleading Ad

Woodpecker's Misleading Ad

08-09-2020 06:52 PM by KDCAT | 15 comments »

I made my first foray into the world of Woodpecker’s tools this week by ordering an Ultra Shear Parting Tool online in Canada. Their ad (see: https://kjpselecthardwoods.com/products/ultrashearpartingtool) is titled, “Ultra Shear Parting Tool’, and shows a picture of the tool, a description of how it’s used along with an attached video showing it in use. Shipping was over $12. What arrived at my home was a flat, pea sized insert for the tool, in an outrageously sized bo...

A lot of thought went into the ergonomics and engineering

A lot of thought went into the ergonomics and engineering

08-08-2020 05:43 AM by sansoo22 | 5 comments »

There was a post back in January about the Woodpecker One-Time Corner Plane. I was one of the few that thought it was an excellent idea. After all I do have a Stanley 95 in near mint condition for putting on crispy corners so why not have a dedicated plane to soften them. So I ordered one and agreed to review it when I got it. I’ve been playing around with this thing on just about every species of scrap stock in my lumber rack and I must say I really enjoy using it. Lets start wi...

Woodpeckers Dado Set-Up Fixture

Woodpeckers Dado Set-Up Fixture

12-12-2019 06:17 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, I have recently reviewed my Freud 8” Dial-a-Width Dado set and vented my spleen about the crappy box packaging in my Freud Dial-a-Width Dado box insert. Tied up with those articles is my purchase of the Woodpecker Dado Set-Up Fixture packaged with two different sizes of their Gap Gauges, I would like to emphasise that as well as being a techno/gadgets freak, I am an avid fan of the Woodpecker’s aluminium tools. It’s like I picture Yankee $1 and $100… the both may...

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

04-21-2018 01:12 PM by MagicalMichael | 6 comments »

This review can only address the unboxing and assembly because the fence has gone onto a not quite finished bench and so hasn’t been used yet. The unit is very solidly made, and I feel confident I will like using it. However when I first unboxed it I considered returning it to Woodcraft. Instead of a router fence I had a collection of 15+ parts and what looked like maybe a hundred assorted, unidentified nuts, bolts and washers. My first look at the instruction manual suggested tha...
