Handsawing Dovetails made fun !

10-15-2019 10:46 PM by Artie623 | 0 comments »

I’m new to the woodworking scene, with just a year under my belt… a NOW beautiful shop… and I feel like I’ve learned more on YouTube over the past year than during my four years of college. Yet, that being said… the horizon is endless in this hobby. I’m not so talented as to turn down help when it comes knocking on my door. So, with my dovetail saw in hand, and my chisels at the ready, when my Katz-Moses 1:6 dovetail jig showed up at my post office I exp...

That's Not Right

That's Not Right

10-14-2019 08:03 PM by pintodeluxe | 13 comments »

This is a cute little shoulder plane that’s just the right size for most furniture projects. Shoulder planes are handy for trimming the last few shavings off tenons to make the M & T joint fit just right. Overall the machining finish on the outer surfaces was pretty good. I don’t expect much from a shoulder plane… it should just be easy to adjust and capable of quickly shaving down tenons. Well, the main problem with this design is there’s nothing to keep the...

A good quality low cost fence...with some quirks.

A good quality low cost fence...with some quirks.

10-02-2019 08:36 AM by njcraftsman | 0 comments »

Always had a soft spot for Craftsman Contractors saws, as I kinda grew up with the men in my life using them. When I started my Biz, I started with a 70’s vintage cast iron top contractor saw, decked out with Vega Fence, out feed tables etc. Anyway, naturally upgraded to a cabinet saw, and in a moment of weakness…sold my old 113. saw. Regreted it ever since. So a couple of months ago passed a 113.298 on the curb for bulk garbage day, and I rescued it. Yeah it has aluminum top..but...

Chain Saw Chain Sharpener

Chain Saw Chain Sharpener

09-24-2019 10:25 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

An up front summary: I’m glad I bought this. After reading several posts about these, and contemplating past results of my chain saw chain sharpening efforts, I decided to take the plunge and gamble thirty-two dollars and fifteen cents ($32.15) on this sharpener. Sometimes, my efforts produced a quick cut and a lot of chips. Other times I smoked the chain a little and produced a lot of dust. The simple of it, describing my poor sharpening results, was: 1) I didn’t always...

The True Position Tools Cabinet Hardware Jig Ensures Error Free Installations

The True Position Tools Cabinet Hardware Jig Ensures Error Free Installations

09-19-2019 01:35 AM by Rich | 3 comments »

When it comes to installing cabinet hardware, if you’re doing one or two knobs or pulls, it’s easy enough to measure and drill by hand. When doing an entire kitchen, a jig really comes in handy and virtually eliminates costly errors. This is the True Position Tools TP-1935. The kit contains all of the pieces from the TP-1934, such as guides, bushings, etc, along with an extended ruler for larger drawers and a set of guides that can accommodate very long handles, as well as se...

Ridgid 18ga " Clean Drive "  Brad Nailer

Ridgid 18ga " Clean Drive " Brad Nailer

09-13-2019 04:21 PM by mel52 | 6 comments »

After having my VERY well used PC blow up in the middle of a project, I decided to replace it and Ridgid was the choice. I really haven’t had a problem with PC, other than the occasional jam or misfire, but when I went to replace it, the new Ridgid was on display also.The Ridgid was on sale for just over eight dollars the price of the PC, which made it around 30+ dollars cheaper. This happens to be their new Clean Drive version, saying 17X more consecutive perfect nails. Ridgid does ha...

Review of Magport Magnetic Couplings

Review of Magport Magnetic Couplings

09-11-2019 06:27 PM by BobHinden | 13 comments »

I have been using the 5? version for about four months. I am very pleased with them. For shops that use a movable hose approach for dust collection, I think they are great. I currently use them to connect my Mini Gorilla dust collector 5? hose to my SawStop PCS, router table, and Hammer A3-41. They connect easily and are self aligning. To add them to the SawStop and my router table, I used a short length of 5” flex hose and hose clamps to connect the Magport to the dust fit...

Production Bowl Turners Will Love Spike Plate

Production Bowl Turners Will Love Spike Plate

09-03-2019 04:46 PM by pmayer | 5 comments »

Even though I’m not a production bowl turner, I’ve been working on getting better and more efficient at turning bowls. One of the clunkier parts of the process is the initial mounting of a blank. Whether you use a traditional face plate or a screw chuck, it can be slow going. I think a screw chuck is fine for smaller bowls, except when it strips out the threads. But for large bowls a screw chuck can be cumbersome to mount and less effective. The Spike Plate was designed by ...

Bench Dog 62 Low Angle Manufacturing Quality Problems

Bench Dog 62 Low Angle Manufacturing Quality Problems

08-21-2019 10:52 AM by LakesideWoodworker | 11 comments »

I have been comparing LV, LN, Woodriver, and Benchdog Low Angle Jack Planes for some time. When Rockler had their Bench Dog plane on sale this month for $159, I thought I would give it a try. Out of the box, it looked very good. The certificate that accompanied the plane said the sole of the plane was flat and when checked with my steel straight edge, it appeared flat. I don’t have a granite stone to test for flatness. Also, using my Starrett combination square, the sides appeared sq...

Don't buy for use in a router table

Don't buy for use in a router table

08-20-2019 05:40 PM by Albert | 6 comments »

I bought this because it is claimed to be for use in a router table, when mounted it works for a short while then gets plugged with sawdust and will not raise/lower. I clean it and it is ok for a while thin needs cleaning again. I use silicone lube so it will not attract dust but…..... Milwaukee service was no help, they say I need a bigger dust collector, I think the way it is designed dust has to fall into the area between the motor housing and the shield.Anyone else have thi...
