Laguna Tools 14/12 Review

Laguna Tools 14/12 Review

03-02-2019 06:31 PM by DMiller | 3 comments »

A little while ago I had the privilege to purchase one of Laguna’s 14/12 bandsaw, a saw I had been wanting to buy for the past several years. First off, as a sixteen year old woodworker I feel very privileged to own and be able to use this saw; I really appreciate my customers who have purchased wood products from me and ultimately provided me the saw. Second, I had been watching craig’s list for quite a while for one of these- people just don’t like to sell them though! ...

Excellent saw restorations and sharpening

Excellent saw restorations and sharpening

02-27-2019 03:24 PM by theoldfart | 8 comments »

This is a product review covering the saw restoration services provided by Rocky Mountain Saw Works. The proprietor is Bob Summerfield aka LJ Summerfi. I’ve been sending saws to Bob for a number of years now and I am impressed with his work ethic, skill at his craft, and his communications during the process. Most recently I sent Bob three saws, a circa 1840 Beardshaw and Sons full size rip saw, a Groves and Sons full size rip saw, and a unique French mitre box saw( scie à recaler). Both t...

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.

Great blade even on my little 10” Craftsman bandsaw

Great blade even on my little 10” Craftsman bandsaw

02-26-2019 01:19 AM by leftcoaster | 4 comments »

I bought this blade when I first got my bandsaw and never took it out before today. Gave it a test run and wow, am I impressed. Super clean thin cuts even on a tiny saw you really wouldn’t consider a resawing workhorse. I have a small box to cut the lid off of and had been dreading doing it end for end on the table saw. Now I have a great alternative.

Don't buy cast holdfasts

Don't buy cast holdfasts

02-23-2019 03:47 PM by b1v1r | 25 comments »

As a part of my new workbench I bought some cast iron holdfasts. I really was not thinking when I bought these as cast iron does not flex as a holdfast must. In hind sight I should have bought forged or some modern hybrid. Here is what I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B5FNPW7 I also wrote up a review on Amazon as well, but these do not work at all. This came with two holdfasts. The first one worked well for the first few hits. Seemed not to lock well the first time on a n...

Feed roller replacement for outdated Makita planer

Feed roller replacement for outdated Makita planer

02-20-2019 06:50 PM by KirkA | 5 comments »

My Makita 2030N 10 inch planer/jointer is over 20 years old. Recently the feed rollers had their plastic coatings dry and crack off, rendering my planer unusable. New rollers were very expensive but after extensive internet searching I found Wood Tech Enterprises. They were able to take my 2030N feed rollers and replace the coating on the rollers to a like-new condition. After placing the re-covered rollers on my Makita planer I have been able to plane to my heart’s content. The r...

Cheap laser engraving machine

Cheap laser engraving machine

02-20-2019 11:24 AM by Woodbie | 5 comments »

Laser engraving services are now provided by many companies. However, paying them money is only worthwhile if you are going to engrave on harder surfaces such as glass or metal. Laser engraving on paper, plastic, leather or wood can also be done at home with a laser engraving machine NEJE DK – BL1500mw. For soft materials, full power, very simple operation. These engraving machines have a power of 1500 mW, an integrated 6000 mAh battery and a Bluetooth 4.0 communication module. Also, th...

Robust router lift for Bench Dog only cast iron tables

Robust router lift for Bench Dog only cast iron tables

02-17-2019 11:58 PM by Holbs | 8 comments »

It came time to up my game. This is my first ever router lift after painfully manually adjustments for years. Because I have a Bench Dog table saw cast iron extension, I was limited (I believe) to either the Bench Dog router lift or Incra Mast-R-Lift-II-R . I went with the Incra because…well… what an awesome track record :)What’s to be said about this lift? It’s awesome 5 stars. Installation was a snap. Installed a Milwaukee 3HP 5625 to ensure all routing needs...

Afordable floating tenon with the Rockler Beadlock system.

Afordable floating tenon with the Rockler Beadlock system.

02-15-2019 05:25 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...

Mostly good

Mostly good

02-06-2019 12:05 PM by Manitario | 3 comments »

I primarily use waterstones for sharpening, except when I need to be aggressive, then the 220 grit diamond plate comes out. I don’t like the mess of conventional waterstones; what I like about these stones is that they only need a spritz of water just before use. Generally, they work well; they sharpen quickly and wear slowly. I mostly have O1 and the PM-V11 steel; the small amount of A2 that I have is slow to sharpen, but I find it slow on everything! Strangely, the 3000g stone is b...
