Far reaching tweezers

Far reaching tweezers

04-24-2020 11:14 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 20 comments »

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...

Softly, Softly Sanding

Softly, Softly Sanding

04-20-2020 07:50 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 11 comments »

Boys and Girls While I was on the roll for sanding blocks, I thought I’d do a quick review of these Sponge Sanding Pads.I blundered across them when I was looking for sanding media for my flap sander. I read the splurge on their WEB site and being gullible believed all the hype and ordered the Mixed Grit Box (25 of each grit)… When it arrived and tried, I was not disappointed… in fact I was so impressed, I gave some friends samples and took up orders to do a bulk buy of each grit (w...

There's Life Left in That There Sanding Disc

There's Life Left in That There Sanding Disc

04-20-2020 05:42 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 16 comments »

Boys and Girls, I have been using these sanding blocks long before Moses started building the ark. While they are my goto sanding savior, I was surprised to hear that many people have never crossed paths with them. I am not spruiking any brands but rather the product. You can find a supplier by Googling 150mm disc sanding blocks. =============================================================== Late amendment for you imperial tragics…. Google using 6” discs…. =...

Soldering On

Soldering On

04-20-2020 02:20 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 19 comments »

Boy and Girls, If you don’t wield a Ryobi 18V tool in your workshop read no further as this is only a skin and is totally of bugger all use without a battery. This is my “Christmas tree” populated for the photo shoot. My soldering prowess sucks nearly as much as my welding… and my welding ability is only second to my number of sober days. Needless to say, I quickly discovered that welding electrical wire was not an easy task, even with a deftly manipulated MIG welder. I didn’t ow...

3D Printer

3D Printer

04-15-2020 03:37 PM by stevejack | 8 comments »

I have always been a wood worker and a computer designer guy. I had heard of these things called 3D Printer that actuality make things in 3D but back in the days they were very expensive. Today they are cheap cheap cheap! I work in the 3D animation world so I wanted one to make my 3D Objects come to life that you could hold in your hands, never thinking about the wood working arena….. SO I got one and man is it cool! There are many brands and after doing a lot a research I settle on ...

One of my favorite layout tools

One of my favorite layout tools

04-11-2020 01:20 AM by CharlesA | 3 comments »

I’ve been making four chairs for the screened in porch, so I’ve been laying out many pieces with layout lines on multiple faces. I can’t tell you how convenient this square is. I wish it had measurments in inches, but other than that, it is nearly perfect. You’ll never know how you lived without it. Here is a link to the Amazon listing.

Just Got a New Career!

Just Got a New Career!

04-05-2020 07:17 PM by TeleMaker | 41 comments »

I’ve been using a shop built drum sander for five or six years, for building custom Tele style guitars. Worked great, but my wife bought me an anniversary present a couple of weeks ago, so I made the mistake of throwing the old warhorse onto Craigslist. BIG MISTAKE. Spent two hours trying to get the conveyor belt to track. Impossible – Ordered another belt to replace the shredded original belt. (Yes, I installed the plastic “guides”, per the manual.) Forced to make con...

Promark Soft Close Drawer Slides

Promark Soft Close Drawer Slides

03-31-2020 02:43 PM by ScandiaSawdust | 4 comments »

I’ve installed a lot of drawer slides in my 25 year cabinetmaking career and was looking for some reasonably priced soft close side mount drawer slides for a low-use project. I’ve tried a few brands on a couple of projects but was underwhelmed with one in particular – the Promark soft close slides. Not only were they loud when closed (and not even on the drawer!) but the ball bearing count was less than all the similar brands, they only had one spring and the slide was very ...

Uncle Bill’s Sliver Gripper

Uncle Bill’s Sliver Gripper

03-30-2020 04:52 PM by TungOil | 23 comments »

I’ve been woodworking for decades, and have gotten my share of splinters over that time. I’ve tried a number of different ‘tools’ for removing splinters, but never found anything that really worked well for the tiny splinters I seem to pick up constantly while building furniture. Until now. I came across the Uncle Bill’s Sliver Gripper about a year ago, so thought I’d give it a try. http://www.slivergripper.net/ This is by far the best tool I have used for removing splinters, ha...
