Rockler Slip Knobs

Rockler Slip Knobs

02-24-2021 01:11 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 22 comments »

Boys and Girls, If you happen to be one of the bunnies that use long threaded rods in your workshop for jigs and outfitting, and don’t want to whittle away your time endlessly threading rods, you may find this item interesting. If you know about these knobs then it’s probably ho-hum, if you didn’t know about them, now you do, and if you thought they were a load of crap, they’ll still stay a load of crap to you. These are retailed by Rockler who call them quick release knobs, but what...

The TSO GRS-16 PE does what it says and makes making square cuts much easier

The TSO GRS-16 PE does what it says and makes making square cuts much easier

02-19-2021 06:17 PM by Bill1974 | 7 comments »

I was struggling with making square cuts with my tracksaw (cordless Makita with 3 different lengths of tracks). I could do it but it was time consuming and tedious. Measuring, marking re-measure, check with 3-4-5 or similar method, then try to align the track. I did some searching on what other’s have done and used and came across a few right angle guides that attach to the track. The TSO GRS-16 PE seemed to fit the bill and get great reviews, but a lot of the reviews I saw were g...

Winning the Soldering War

Winning the Soldering War

02-03-2021 11:35 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 67 comments »

Boy and Girls, I wrote a review about the Ryobi Soldering Iron less than 12 months ago. Contrary to my religious beliefs, I performed a mortal sin by breaking one of my commandments. I actually considered cost into the equation when deciding on purchasing the Iron. I will defend my insanity on the grounds that I seldom solder (or is it seldom sober) and did not consider I would need the added features of the Station compared to the Iron… actually I can’t remember if the Station was ava...

Braun LED light BRAUN 390 Lumen Magnetic Slim Bar Folding LED Work Light

12-18-2020 02:34 PM by Emanon | 4 comments »

This one is from Harbor Freight. Hold on….please read on……….. Last year I was looking for a cheap LED for a project, a guy next to me started a conversation. During our conversation he asked if I had ever seen this work light. After responding ‘no’ he told me that he really liked this light and proceeded to tell me all about it. He liked it so much he bought everyone in his shop one (he owns an auto mechanics shop). Well 25 bucks (now 35) was a bit much but they guy was so adamant I b...

I'm done with Woodcraft Plano

I'm done with Woodcraft Plano

12-11-2020 12:24 PM by becikeja | 56 comments »

This review is isolated to one store. Woodcraft in Plano Texas.I am fortunate that I now live in the Dallas area as of a year ago and have other options. I am not a professional woodworker, just a hobbyist but I think I’m pretty good. Feel free to review my projects and judge for yourself. I love the hobby and spend most of my free time in the shop. Unfortunately I do have a day job and occasionally need something to finish up a project on the weekend. I have a great wife who has ...

Bonanza Online Market

Bonanza Online Market https://www.bonanza.com It is an alternative to eBay. They are geared to high volume sales and ‘fashion’ as their front page suggests. They do have tool listings (435 Planes on Nov6, 2020). My opinion up front: I think they are worth trying, but I don’t think they are a real alternative for tools. A. Facts Regarding the Site Here is a pretty good summary of what they do: https://support.bonanza.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001172731 Their monetary cut of a ...

Have you guys tried this stuff yet? Of course I use it on the grill and other dinnerware, I’ve even used it to remove bugs from my wife’s grill of her truck. I took a chance on this the other day on my Forrest saw blades and not only did this remove the pitch, it made my blades shine like new!! You should consider this next time you are cleaning your blades.

Black and Decker 20v Cordless Power Tool Combo

11-02-2020 10:53 PM by JoshMcD78 | 5 comments »

My wife you could say got me this set for an early birthday present. It was a 20v cordless drill, 12 LED light flashlight, a 20v cordless reciprocating saw, and a 5½ inch 20v cordless circular saw. I am just getting started building my collection. I am remarkably impressed with the set. The drill is relatively strong and stays charged a good while considering the batteries are 1.5ah. I have really enjoyed playing with the set. I’m have not used the reciprocating saw but the light is rea...

24” T-Track (2 pack) Brand: HOT FAVORABLE

24” T-Track (2 pack) Brand: HOT FAVORABLE

10-04-2020 09:08 AM by JIGGA12 | 7 comments »

So as woodworkers I know we share info on tools, parts, etc. So I just received yesterday from Amazon some T-Track. It was $18.99 for two 24” pieces of black track that has a great feel to it cause it’s a Fine Sandblast Black Anodized. It has the exact same dimensions as the Powertec T-Track that myself and others have bought which is nice compared to Rocklers track because you can fit bolt heads into it. Dare I say it just has this sexy look to it ???? Sometimes blue or red track just clashe...

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...
