Rockler Cross Lap Jig

Rockler Cross Lap Jig

06-09-2020 10:25 PM by gtrgeo | 6 comments »

I used this jig to create an egg crate style return air grill (project here) and it worked flawlessly. I have used shop made jigs in the past for box joints but the adjustable fingers on this jig intrigued me. I have never used the Incra I-Box jig but they look to operate similarly. Contents:The jig comes in a sturdy box and is packaged well with a block of Styrofoam included to prevent shifting of contents. The parts are in two separate bags. The wood components in one bag and the adjusta...

Good Sandpaper Value

Good Sandpaper Value

06-09-2020 09:51 PM by Redoak49 | 1 comment »

I had looked at the Klingspor Bargain Box of Sandpaper several times in the past and finally purchased the 10 Pound version of Fine, Medium and Coarse paper. This paper was all cloth backed and about 12” wide and each of the rolls contained 30-75” of material. I got a total of 14 rolls with the following grits: 50, 60, 80, 100 150, 180, 220, 240 and 320. I will use the material in a variety of ways. I often glue with 3M77 spray glue a piece of sandpaper to 1/4” MDF....

Great, inexpensive solution for veneering

Great, inexpensive solution for veneering

06-08-2020 04:31 PM by leftcoaster | 6 comments »

https://www.roarockit.com/skateboard-building/thin-air-press/tap-kits/thin-air-press-kit-26x28/#.Xt5mlS2z2-o There’s a review by Woodworker’s Journal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjQe9p1LBCk I didn’t want to buy an expensive mechanical veneering press and have to store it, and clamping was turning out to be relatively time consuming with inconsistent results. I found this product and it was awesome. I used cold press veneering glue and placed my panel between t...

Better than my Wixey

Better than my Wixey

06-04-2020 01:34 AM by sansoo22 | 9 comments »

I got this little Klein angle finder as a birthday gift about a week ago and I love it. I like it so well in fact I went thru my compound sliding miter saw and set all of the bevel stops I will probably never even use. There isn’t a whole lot to say about a digital angle finder so I will just make a pros and cons list. Pros: As of right now its 10 bucks cheaper than the Wixey on Amazon The magnet is stronger than the Wixey. For someone that knocks stuff off benches and saws...

back of split table higher than front when clamped down

back of split table higher than front when clamped down

06-02-2020 08:39 PM by mehloyellow | 12 comments »

I’m a hobbyist and look to this site often for advice and help. I used the positive reviews of this site and others to in buying my band saw. I have an issue with a Laguna 14bx-220v band saw that I purchased a few weeks ago and need some advice. I noticed that the back end of the split table was about 10 thousandths of an inch higher than the front when clamped down. (see attached picture) It’s enough to catch any thing being slid across the table when cutting. I read an old...

Miter Box Dust Collection Hood

Miter Box Dust Collection Hood

05-30-2020 05:30 PM by Kelly | 0 comments »

I’ve tried several methods of collection dust from my miter saw over the years. Some used a shop vac and some used a dust collector. All successful ones relied on some sort of box or container to capture dust tossed off the miter. Oddly, the shop vac version worked well, but it was a full cabinet with side support beds, a lowered, adjustable table for the miter, and a back with a dust port. To be fair, it was for my first and most accurate miter – a Delta, which did only angle...

Broken Screw Extractor - Unscrew-Ums

Broken Screw Extractor - Unscrew-Ums

05-30-2020 04:18 PM by CL810 | 2 comments »

I heard about this life saving tool on an old (2014) Fine Woodworking podcast. Fortunately for me, T & L Tools is still in business. If you have ever broken a small delicate brass screw while installing a hinge you will appreciate this tool. It will remove broken screws with minimal removal of wood. So far I’ve been able to just put in a new screw. The only caveat is that while the unscrew-ums are hardened steel, they do not last forever and this is explicitly covered on th...

MOHAWK Saves the day

MOHAWK Saves the day

05-29-2020 03:39 PM by stevejack | 3 comments »

I was shooting lacquer yesterday. I did not check my humidity gauge in my shop before I shot. it was 75% UGH! I shot 4 pieces of the next project and the finish was milky white….. KILL ME… I bought 2 can of MOHAWK NO BLUSH RETARDER PLUS. Never used it but thought it may come be useful some day. SO I gave it a try. It sprays on just like spray paint and looks and smells my spray can lacquer. The BLUSH disappeared immediately. I gave it an hour to dry. Looked perfect I shot ...

I wasn't too sure at the outset but turned out to be great

05-23-2020 02:34 PM by bonobo | 1 comment »

I’m giving this 4 stars because the instructions came with an incorrect measurement, which meant that the brass insert screw had to be moved after installation. This was problematic because the Lee Valley inset screws are made of a very brittle brass and the screwdriver slot is liable to fracture on the way in or out. I had a good sized piece of brass bounce off my eyeball when I was trying to get it in for the second time. When I eventually rebuild the shooting board, I’ll use a ...

Huge time saver

Huge time saver

05-22-2020 05:12 AM by planecurious | 13 comments »

I’ve always had problems storing my Router Plane because of its shape and the fact that my workspace is quite small so I don’t have the luxuy of dedicating a shelf to it; the blade roll helped keeping the blades in but the fence was still a bit of a problem. I had decided I should make a dedicated box to store it but Veritas beat me to it and I am very glad they did! The box comes flat packed and is very easy to assemble with just a screwdriver (I found it easier to do so stand...
