Rockler Router Table Dust Bucket

Rockler Router Table Dust Bucket

05-01-2021 01:09 PM by DaveM123 | 4 comments »

I happened to see this product after I had done a bunch of routing and had sawdust and chips everywhere. Even though I had my dust collector hooked up to the router table fence it wasn’t terribly effective. I took a look at this and thought about making one but honestly between cost and time this proved out to be worth it. Assembly was straightforward and easy with everything lining up perfectly. Attaching it to my Rockler Router Table was relatively easy and my Bosch 1617 fit with no i...

Dead Nuts Accurate Squares

Dead Nuts Accurate Squares

04-30-2021 06:40 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I like the idea of fixed reference squares for tool setup and building crosscut sleds etc. Adjustable squares are great for everyday project work, but I also need fixed squares for precisely 90 degree settings. In use, these squares have really fit the bill. I didn’t know if they’d be more shop art than anything else, but I pull them down on a daily basis. The case is a great way to store, display and protect them. They can be a little large for some tasks, and I still reach ...

Fiskars Precision Handsaw

Fiskars Precision Handsaw

04-29-2021 09:49 PM by poopiekat | 5 comments »

While shopping at Michael’s Craft Store for some resin tints, I found this little saw. Made by Fiskars, a brand I associate with good quality scissors, I bought the saw, it was only about $8 CDN. I got a chance to use it right away on some pegged joints, and it was crazy sharp!! A very slight set to the teeth made it not suitable for flush cuts, but when pre-cutting dowels it would only take a few strokes to go through. It has about 16 TPI, hardened like some typical toolbox saws...

Boys and Girls, Abandoning my Fe$tool fetish, I decided to stick with green and spruik the latest addition to my Ryobi collection. This is something that will never replace a decent compressor or even an indecent small(ish) one, however, if you did not think you needed a large one and your anticipated requirement could not justify one… and if you are space constrained, this may be a compromising option. Because of it’s small tank capacity (3.7L… or 1 gal in crazy measure...

This unit comes with: (1) Stainless steel pot. It measures about 11” in diameter by 11” tall. It looks even bigger, and is listed as a five gallon unit. (2) Tempered glass lid. This is a nice, heavy piece of glass, ABOUT 3/4” thick. (3) A silicone gasket, which mounts to the can. (4) An oil filled vacuum gauge. (5) Two valves, to allow you to connect to a vacuum pump and to release pressure from the pump and pot. (6) A five foot (5’) hose with fitting...

Pretty happy with the Kit

Pretty happy with the Kit

04-18-2021 08:40 AM by whope | 3 comments »

I was the Washington Woodworkers Guild booth at a woodworking show in Northern Virginia the last weekend before Covid shut everything down in 2020. I had decided to build an assembly table for the inside part of my shop. We had a couple of Noden Adjust-a-Benches in our booth and decided that I would use the kit as a starting point for my assembly table. There was a Noden booth at the show, so I stopped by and ordered the kit. At the time, I decided not to get the mobility kit. The kit a...

My HF Lathe and Duplicator

My HF Lathe and Duplicator

03-30-2021 06:42 PM by bruc101 | 6 comments »

I purchased my HF lathe about 3 years ago, added my duplicator to it, and have turned several 100 legs and spindles on it. I’m not and never have been a bowl turner so i can’t give my opinion how it works for that. The lathe has worked flawless for me, does what I ask it to do, and has never let me down. It’s an inexpensive lathe and I’ve taken excellent care of it and never try to make it do anything it’s not built to do. I purchased our youngest daughter o...

Removes material quickly and with control

Removes material quickly and with control

03-28-2021 09:05 PM by dbw | 5 comments »

I do a lot of template work using a router. In thicker stock such as 6/4 and 8/4 it can take forever to remove material (not to mention the wear and tear on the bit). This is where this tool shines. It makes quick work out of hogging out large and/or deep parcels of wood. It is made in Australia and it’s designed to work with any 4” or 4 1/2” angle grinder which has a 5/8” 11 shaft. In parts of the world where angle grinders have shafts with metric threads a M10 X 1.5 ...

Oliver Byrd Shelix Benchtop Planer

Oliver Byrd Shelix Benchtop Planer

I just purchased this planer for $699 plus $95 for shipping. After running electrical for a 20 amp fuse I got to try it out. My initial reaction was wow. I’ve had two different panera a jet and Dewalt. This Oliver planer is fantastic! I planed walnut, cherry, maple, paduk, curly cherry and birdseye maple. The finish was excellent will take very little sanding. The curly cherry and birdseye was just excellent. No tear out nothing but a smooth finish. It comes with a Wixey Digital Readou...
