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...

Shaped cabinet scraper

Shaped cabinet scraper

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.

Pop Rivet gun for small hands

Pop Rivet gun for small hands

06-07-2019 07:05 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 10 comments »

Boys and Girls, This cannot be a proper duck tail without digressing from the crux of the topic. I had this penchant to procure one of these cordless inflators, to accompany my new shiny red Honda CRV… (OK… I know this is the wrong product… just bear with me). Unfortunately it was only a skin and the seldom seen penny pinching side of me emerged and I was adverse to spending a small fortune for a charger and two batteries (I believe one MUST have a backup battery...

Festool Mobile Systainer Base/Cart

Boys and Girls, For a comprehensive review, one must set the atmosphere… and if you don’t need to breathe, scroll down to the first picture of the mobile base (about 1/2 way down… but then you wont know what I was talking about). Years ago I was like a lot of you LJers and avoided Fe$tool like the plague because of it$ price tag$. However years ago back in 2008 when I was young and naive, I bought a Makita Cordless 4 Mode Impact Driver (BTP140) for $830… yep $830 fo...

Infeed roller modification

Infeed roller modification

05-03-2019 01:08 PM by Jarrhead | 4 comments »

I was having a problem with my planer’s infeed roller leaving marks on my work pieces on the outfeed end. Apparently this is a very common problem, not just with my brand/model of planer (Grizzly 15”), but with many other brands as well. It seems the new industry standard for infeed rollers is to produce them with these rather aggressive serrations that end up embossing the wood surface. If you don’t take a rather substantial cut, the embossing will still be very prevalent after the work p...

Always sharp drill bits.

Always sharp drill bits.

Always sharp drill bitsI love it! Bought this little fellow two years ago and think it needs attention…. I am one of those guys who hates dull tools and even more find a dull drill bit when I need just that size, so after yeas of frustration, I decided to go the lazy road of a drill bitt sharpener and honestly it was a wonderful choice. I don’t have much to say, except learn how to sharpen by hand on your grinder, or buy one of these, this is so fast and so useful, that I...

PM CNC dust shoe has fatal design flaw

PM CNC dust shoe has fatal design flaw

03-03-2019 04:01 PM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

On my CNC machine, the current dust shoe setup has a few issues I’ve been meaning to take care of for a bit. First off, the shoe is set up for a 2.5 inch port for a shop vac. Secondly, the original owner cut the brush oddly so there is a section with short bristles near the DC port. So between the small port and the suction loss with the short brush on the one side, making a new dust shoe has been on my to do list for a bit. I happened to get an email from Amazon about some warehous...

I know it’s not woodworking but this Harbor Freight weed torch works great, I bought the one with a igniter for $30 minus the 20% it was $26, don’t burn down your house.
