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...

Dust deputy gets 10 stars

Dust deputy gets 10 stars

05-17-2020 07:27 PM by ibewjon | 12 comments »

Last night I tried my new dust deputy on a 5 gallon bucket connected to an older Craftsman shop vac. I was collecting the dust from a Supermax 19-38 sander. It did an outstanding job, very little dust in the filter, and over 2 inches of dust in the bucket. For me, it is temporary until I get my main DC piping extended to my front garage area, but it is a great addition for anyone not having a whole shop system.

Boys and Girls, Recently I made a box for my new Milwaukee trimmer and hacked together a video on using my Frontline Clamps for making the panels for the box. I thought that to give closure to the topic I should write up some kind of review on the trimmer. To spare some people the pain of reading (ugh), most will pull the ripcord when I mention the cost of $365 (Aust) for just the skin…. BYE… BYe… Bye… bye… by… b… … Anyone still there? When I first read a review about this trimmer I...

Cant Get It Assembled!!!

Cant Get It Assembled!!!

I bought this combo sander for a project build for my wife for mothers day. I only have 2 more days and all I needed was some final sanding prior to finishing the stain and protective layers. The spindle knob (free floating) won’t even thread onto the spindle. Took belt off and just tried to free-hand it on but it doesn’t seem to fit. Threads appear to be okay and no sign of any x-threading seen. Has anyone else run into this problem and was there a fix. Our local HD doesn&#...

Jet 14" bandsaw with 13.3 resaw capacity.

We ordered this saw from Rockler for $999 with free shipping from Jet. took about 2 1/2 weeks to get, but hey it was during an epidemic. It comes in one box on a pallet and has a massive amount of styrofoam. We were able to lift the bottom up on a piece of styrofoam and add the base and feet then stand it up and walk it into position. The table(and fence) and one dust port were the only things to add. There was a small 4 inch piece of wood in the bag with the dust port… DO not throw ...

I thought this might make a good gift, so I decided to find out. I made a quick and simple box using up scraps of 1/2” baltic birch plywood. The box is rabbet/dado joints, the back is just butt joint and glue, the front is screwed on so I can get back inside the box if necessary. The only part that could be better is unhooking the speakers from the control unit. I was very careful. The blue connector came off completely and the red and white connectors left half of the plastic...

My first experience with cutting dados was on an ancient table saw (no dust collection) using a cheap wobble blade. It scared me off dados for about five years. My second experience cutting dados was with a router and a cheap edge guide. They were mostly straight. I decided it was time to add some proper dado cutting ability to my shop. I had had very good experience with Forrest blades in the past so I purchased their Dado King. I purchased the 8 inch set only to find out it was not compatib...

Bigger not Always Better!

Bigger not Always Better!

04-30-2020 01:30 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, There are times when even Tim the Toolman Taylor (Home Improvements) might agree with me that bigger isn’t always better. Sometimes a bit & brace is far too big, as even the drill press Adding a smaller chuck is not much use,while further downsizing doesn’t cut the mustard, The solution is in a pin vice,to do justice to my mini dovetails, The ruler in gallery picture #3 gives an indication of it’s size. The vice is stainless and functions very smoothly a...

First installment. I will update as things progress. Ordered it about two weeks ago. Talked to the folks on the phone a couple of times. Very nice. Answered all my questions and were welcoming to some overall feedback on their WEB presence. ( or lack there of) and features as a woodworker I woudl like. Due to the coronavirus, a little delays in getting back sure can’t put that on them! Arrived when scheduled. Very good service. A couple holes in the box but did not touch anything...

Far reaching tweezers

Far reaching tweezers

Boys and Girls, I just finished a bit of drivel about laser engraving pens which left me with a penchant for sharing some of the different tools I have access to, that others may not be aware of. Now not everyone is going to undertake the construction of a wooden ship and try to get intimate with the close proximity of a hard to reach mast’s base and all those “ropes”, and consequently never experience the aid it was to me on that rigging, however, you may find some...
