Every shop needs a workbench brush

Every shop needs a workbench brush

03-20-2022 12:53 PM by EarlS | 38 comments »

I know you are probably thinking that this is silly thing to write a review about. Keep reading and I will attempt to change your mind. I haven’t had a brush in my shop for many years. I always used the shop vac to infrequently take care of the accumulated dust on the bench or other flat surfaces around the shop. Usually, that meant picking up everything I didn’t want to get sucked into the hose. Cleaning dust off plans, books, or other pieces of paper was even worse since ...

The Green Ryobi "Dunny Ogre"

The Green Ryobi "Dunny Ogre"

03-05-2022 09:54 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 21 comments »

Boy and Girls, In keeping with my disturbing mental instability, this is another review of a product for something it was never intended for. To set the scene, let me digress to a time when C19 was still in the brains of alleged foreign uni students studying their first year of chemistry in Australia. I have this dust extraction duct running the line of the pictured clamps (?5m run), Had a fit of cleansies... while undertaking the chore of beautifying the workshop and karaokeing t...

Veneer Supplies The Incredible Box of Veneers (Premimum)

Veneer Supplies The Incredible Box of Veneers (Premimum)

01-04-2022 10:50 PM by splintergroup | 11 comments »

I really like veneers, I hoard them 8^) One of my favorite sources is VeneerSupplies and the subject of this review is their “Incredible Box of Veneers”, premium edition They are a husband/wife operation in MDI’d guess the source is leftovers from their full length supplies, distributor samples, one-offs, etc. Some have splits, etc. I have purchased several of the standard boxes which provide 100+ sq.ft. of various veneers in a 36”x12”x5” box.These...

Clean diamond stones with Hi-Polymer Block Eraser

Clean diamond stones with Hi-Polymer Block Eraser

12-19-2021 01:45 AM by Combo Prof | 26 comments »

Unusual I know to review an eraser, but I wanted you to know that this trick works really well. I bought a box of 10 for $8.99, so they are really cheap and I will probably never run out. Here is a before and after cleaning of a fine diamond slipstone. I clamped the stone in a vise and rubbed the eraser over it until all the crud was off and wiped it clean. It took only a minute. Before: After: Addendum: I was also able to clean with these erasers in addition to my diamo...

When A Bluetooth turns green.

When A Bluetooth turns green.

12-16-2021 10:44 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 45 comments »

Boy and Girls, Why do I keep getting sucked in by everyone elses phobia about shekel scrounging. Again, to what initially appeared to be my demise, I chose the cheaper option and purchased a Fe$tool Cordless Plunge Cut Saw ”skin”, as I already had a couple of Fe$tool 18V batteries and charger under my belt. I also recently purchased a basic, but “Bluetoothable” Fe$tool CTM36E dusty, and upgraded it with the Bluetooth function/feature after reading ic3ss’s great review of the Fest...

Great price for Wen 4-inch Swivel and Locking Polyurethane Casters

Great price for Wen 4-inch Swivel and Locking Polyurethane Casters

10-30-2021 08:20 PM by James E McIntyre | 16 comments »

My shop floor is covered with HF anti fatigue mats. It was difficult to move a cabinet I made with the 3” casters I originally installed on it. I shopped around for 4” casters and found a set of four Wen 4” swivel locking casters at Wenproducts.com for a great price of $24.89 and no freight charges. That’s only $6.2225 each. I removed the 3” and installed the new 4”. I was lucky that the new casters have slotted screw holes and fit the existing holes. The one inch d...

Cooking Up Things In the Shop

Cooking Up Things In the Shop

06-12-2021 09:51 PM by Kelly | 6 comments »

This is, as much as anything, a tip about silicone [and glass] kitchen mats normally used for baking and such, but which prove great for around the shop. These measure 16” x 24”, so they are a nice size for many projects. They’ll fight off carpenter’s glue, but I haven’t test driven them with Super Glue type products. They are water proof and will take a lot of heat. They roll up, then flatten again without problems. I paid about $12.00 for two of them. ...

Incredibly worthless JUNK!

Incredibly worthless JUNK!

05-30-2021 02:09 PM by darthford | 6 comments »

I purchased this 5 roller stand at a local woodworker supply store recently. It’s embarrassingly bad. 1. The rollers are secured to the frame with bent over cotter pins and washers. Gouging your hand on these is pretty likely because they didn’t even bother to cut the shaft to length properly, it’s sticks out from the side frame about 3/4 of an inch in mid air. 2. Because the rollers are not bolted to the side frames there’s zero rigidity and there’s so muc...

The shutter louvre jig plans

The shutter louvre jig plans

05-21-2021 09:40 PM by dbray45 | 0 comments »

So far, the only plans that I have purchased were the jigs set from New Yankee Workshop (remember that show???).I bought it for the shutters jig. Making the jig is a 2 part process which makes it a bit of a challenge. I works pretty well but don’t make a finish shutter until you have made some practice runs. There are a few things to note. Accuracy is paramount. I made three jigs before I got one that I liked and even then, it takes some practice. When cutting the notches ...

FastCap Track Rack optimal storage for your track saw track

FastCap Track Rack optimal storage for your track saw track

05-13-2021 05:24 PM by therealSteveN | 12 comments »

Hi all Recent buy, and it’s a winner. Anyone who has a track saw has probably realized the potential for the track itself to become bent, or not functional. I’ve heard a few horror stories. I have been lucky, and have not had a problem, but it is a storage problem to hide a 9’ long track and never have it get hit while moving around large boards. I happened upon this FastCap Track Rack, it was on sale, and I thought this is a good thing. https://www.amazon.com/FastC...
