I wasn't too sure at the outset but turned out to be great

05-23-2020 02:34 PM by bonobo | 0 comments »

I’m giving this 4 stars because the instructions came with an incorrect measurement, which meant that the brass insert screw had to be moved after installation. This was problematic because the Lee Valley inset screws are made of a very brittle brass and the screwdriver slot is liable to fracture on the way in or out. I had a good sized piece of brass bounce off my eyeball when I was trying to get it in for the second time. When I eventually rebuild the shooting board, I’ll use a ...

I thought this might make a good gift, so I decided to find out. I made a quick and simple box using up scraps of 1/2” baltic birch plywood. The box is rabbet/dado joints, the back is just butt joint and glue, the front is screwed on so I can get back inside the box if necessary. The only part that could be better is unhooking the speakers from the control unit. I was very careful. The blue connector came off completely and the red and white connectors left half of the plastic...

Far reaching tweezers

Far reaching tweezers

04-24-2020 11:14 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 20 comments »

Boys and Girls, I just finished a bit of drivel about laser engraving pens which left me with a penchant for sharing some of the different tools I have access to, that others may not be aware of. Now not everyone is going to undertake the construction of a wooden ship and try to get intimate with the close proximity of a hard to reach mast’s base and all those “ropes”, and consequently never experience the aid it was to me on that rigging, however, you may find some...

Softly, Softly Sanding

Softly, Softly Sanding

04-20-2020 07:50 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 11 comments »

Boys and Girls While I was on the roll for sanding blocks, I thought I’d do a quick review of these Sponge Sanding Pads.I blundered across them when I was looking for sanding media for my flap sander. I read the splurge on their WEB site and being gullible believed all the hype and ordered the Mixed Grit Box (25 of each grit)… When it arrived and tried, I was not disappointed… in fact I was so impressed, I gave some friends samples and took up orders to do a bulk buy of each grit (w...

There's Life Left in That There Sanding Disc

Boys and Girls, I have been using these sanding blocks long before Moses started building the ark. While they are my goto sanding savior, I was surprised to hear that many people have never crossed paths with them. I am not spruiking any brands but rather the product. You can find a supplier by Googling 150mm disc sanding blocks. =============================================================== Late amendment for you imperial tragics…. Google using 6” discs…. =...

Soldering On

Soldering On

Boy and Girls, If you don’t wield a Ryobi 18V tool in your workshop read no further as this is only a skin and is totally of bugger all use without a battery. This is my “Christmas tree” populated for the photo shoot. My soldering prowess sucks nearly as much as my welding… and my welding ability is only second to my number of sober days. Needless to say, I quickly discovered that welding electrical wire was not an easy task, even with a deftly manipulated MIG welder. I didn’t ow...

I have always been a wood worker and a computer designer guy. I had heard of these things called 3D Printer that actuality make things in 3D but back in the days they were very expensive. Today they are cheap cheap cheap! I work in the 3D animation world so I wanted one to make my 3D Objects come to life that you could hold in your hands, never thinking about the wood working arena….. SO I got one and man is it cool! There are many brands and after doing a lot a research I settle on ...

Promark Soft Close Drawer Slides

Promark Soft Close Drawer Slides

03-31-2020 02:43 PM by ScandiaSawdust | 4 comments »

I’ve installed a lot of drawer slides in my 25 year cabinetmaking career and was looking for some reasonably priced soft close side mount drawer slides for a low-use project. I’ve tried a few brands on a couple of projects but was underwhelmed with one in particular – the Promark soft close slides. Not only were they loud when closed (and not even on the drawer!) but the ball bearing count was less than all the similar brands, they only had one spring and the slide was very ...

Dremel Fortiflex – flexible shaft motor Bought this flexible shaft motor, after reading that so many people talking good about this kind of tool.It’s not cheap, but I have to say it is worth the money.I have used it a lot, since I bought it and for both woodworking and blacksmithing work.The motor has plenty of power, the pedal are well balanced and the two different handle types are making it even more versitile. I prefer the thin handle for fine work, where the bigger one are...

Great customer service.

I purchased one of their machines at a local auction. I figured I needed some type of software as I purchased just the machine. Gave them a call on a Saturday(purchased it the night before) and had a good conversation about the machine and what I needed. The next day I received a email with every thing I needed to get it up and running program wise I didn’t expect to receive anything on a Sunday. Great company, great customer service and even more so considering umm not the original own...
