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

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.

Afordable floating tenon with the Rockler Beadlock system.

02-15-2019 09:25 AM by Armoredduck | 4 comments »

Been using Dowels for a while and wanted to try another system. Was debating on getting the Pro system but wanted to test out the smaller one 1st. Tested it out on a small project 1st(Picture Frame) and I have to say I really like it so far. Having the Kreg clamp is really helpful for speeding things up. One suggestion I would tell anyone if they want to get one it to use a red pencil. Its so much easier to see the lines when you are marking your pieces. I also think on some projects it may b...

Way brighter than incandescent with just ok hardware

Way brighter than incandescent with just ok hardware

01-24-2019 01:54 AM by bigblockyeti | 9 comments »

After just moving from a detached shop where I had replaced the florescent tubes with LED tubes, I knew it was time to upgrade again from the incandescent fixtures in my new garage. I had previously bought FEIT replacement bulbs at Costco and was pleased with their performance but now not having florescent fixtures meant starting from scratch. After much online searching I settled on Omni-Ray as their prices were competitive, warranty is great (hope I don’t need it) and the claimed li...

Veritas Shooting Board - Not great, only good...

Veritas Shooting Board - Not great, only good...

01-22-2019 07:51 AM by CaptainKlutz | 10 comments »

Summary: Veritas Shooting board integrates (3) different Veritas products: Shooting Board Fence, 24” Shooting Board Track, and fabricated BB Plywood Shooting board. Expected to receive typical Veritas high quality product, but found several unexpected and disappointing issues as I attempted to use it. It does the job expected of a shooting board, but it could be better. Flaws in both the Fence and Track forced me to remove 2 stars from what could be a 5 star product. First ̵...

Rockler Fence Flip Stop Does Not Work

Rockler Fence Flip Stop Does Not Work

01-21-2019 10:08 PM by CaptainKlutz | 11 comments »

Summary: This flip stop is not accurate or repeatable, purchase not recommended. It only earns 1 star, due fact that you can still use it a little (and forums won’t let me use zero star).You can tighten the flip stop bolt snug and at least use it as fixed stop that doesn’t flip – you have to remove it when you don’t want to use it. :-( Bought the #53648 Rockler Drill Press Fence awhile back, and it came with this flip stop. I almost never use the flip stop on d...
