Handy EDC (Everyday Chisel?) 18mm Pocket Chisel

Handy EDC (Everyday Chisel?) 18mm Pocket Chisel

07-09-2019 09:59 PM by Rich | 3 comments »

I first saw these advertised in Furniture & Cabinetmaking, a woodworking magazine published in the UK. As luck would have it the chisels were available on Amazon UK for shipping to the USA. I would have preferred a couple of millimeters wider blade, but, as is often the case on Amazon, the prices and shipping costs vary across different models of the same product and this one was a good price. At the time I bought this, it was $14.73 with $6.40 shipping. The quality is excellent. T...

Shaped cabinet scraper

Shaped cabinet scraper

07-07-2019 02:58 PM by MichaelT77 | 1 comment »

I had the need to hollow out one side of some small cherry boards so they would fit nicely over a curved frame for a box lid. See my “cherry box for motorcycle” project. I bought the Garlick cabinet scrapers at my local woodworking store. They are ready to work right out of the package, and I was astounded by the piles of wood curls I was producing. No dust. Haven’t tried sharpening them, yet.

Do you use and break small drill bits?

Do you use and break small drill bits?

06-20-2019 11:52 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 20 comments »

Boys and Girls, This may not be everyone’s cup of tea and that’s why I’ve refrained from giving it 5 stars. If you don’t use small drill bits (1mm bit mounted in mini-chuck) then it won’t concern you and if you reach the end of this article, you’d have wasted some of your valuable time and maybe even some of mine… but if you do indulge… the chances of a bent or broken .5mm to 4mm drill bit will be greatly reduced… may even work for the equivalent imperial bits. If y...

Heavy Duty Mobile Base

Heavy Duty Mobile Base

06-20-2019 12:04 AM by Fiddy | 3 comments »

Picked this up on Grizzly’s site. Had been needing to get a base under the 12” jointer I bought awhile back now. Only machine that wasn’t mobile so I’ve been wanting to get that done. Not sure what it weighed, but it’s a beast so I wanted something that it wouldn’t max out. This option was really not too bad in cost, but I did need extensions for the length as it wouldn’t make it. For those needing it for a jointer like this, it did pose a problem as it only went down to around 18” and I need...

Review of MasterGage SuperBar and MasterPlate

Review of MasterGage SuperBar and MasterPlate

06-11-2019 11:42 PM by BobHinden | 11 comments »

Recently I purchased a Sawstop PCS. As part of the installation, Iwanted to get a gauge to check the alignment of the blade to thetable, and the fence to the table. I first purchased the Woodpeckers Precision Woodworking Saw Gauge to do this. See: Woodpecker Saw Gauge While it is well made, I found it difficult to use. It requires puttingpressure near the rear bar to get consistent measurements. It’s veryfiddly to use. This makes it challenging to get consistent results,esp...

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...

Dust problem with switch

Dust problem with switch

06-05-2019 01:15 AM by Jim Finn | 7 comments »

I like the Bosch saw a lot but after about a year the switch started sticking closed and I had to unplug the saw to make it stop. I blew it out with compressed air and that fixed it …for a few months. After the third time , today, I wrapped the switch in seran wrap, hoping to keep the dust out of this switch. I hope this works.

IBC Bench Chisels the best value available right now

IBC Bench Chisels the best value available right now

06-03-2019 11:47 PM by Pancova | 6 comments »

Hi all, while deciding what chisels to upgrade to from my wood rivers and previous Irwin’s I found lumber jocks and the reviews here. For the most part helpful but I was a little surprised to see some of the negative reviews. Back story: I’m a mostly handtool woodworker, and I have been at this for about 3 years. My first set of chisels was the Irwin marbles with the blue plastic handles, good chisels for the money.. but they took a lot of work to get tuned. From those I went to a...

 Bench Dog Accessories

Bench Dog Accessories

06-01-2019 10:49 PM by hairy | 2 comments »

I bought my ‘89 Unisaw 11 years ago. It did not have a bladeguard , splitter or any safety equipment. Among the first accessories I purchased was the Bench Dog featherboard. I use it a lot. A couple years ago I bought an Ark Shark guard, for safety as much as dust collection. I use it as much as I can. The Bench Dog push stick is great for when the fence is near the guard. It looks kinds flimsy, but it is pretty stout. I always thought the Blade Loc was a gimmick. I got one at a y...
