  • Central Machinery 98303-0VGA T Track Hold Down Clamp

    Such a simple device, but with so many HF tools having such bad fit and finish, the 98303-0VGA T Track Hold Down clamps were a pleasant surprise. The stamped, and bent steel clamp arms were well dressed, and the finish is nice and solid, the rubber non mar caps are quite simple and effective, and the knob / nut is cleanly dressed with no sharp edges, and the knob feels good and solid.

    While I could have (and probably should have) shop built my own solution, I needed to maximize shop time on other projects, and I HAD to have hold downs for my DP table. These solved the problem for about half of what other vendors sell similar items for. The aluminum slot adapters in my T slot were useless, but the bolt heads were just the right size. They work very well. I am happy with them...

      The aluminum slot adapters work perfectly in my miter track (ant the heads of the bolts perfectly in my Kreg T-track). Well worth the $5.

  • A Review of the Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence
    by twistsol
    Over the years, Iíve had multiple router tables. Everything from a small aluminum Craftsman benchtop model, to the router mount on my BT3000, to a custom built version in my old ultimate tool stand and another custom built one in the wide table of my saw. In every case there was something missing or just not quite up to par. The Sommerfeld table and fence change all that and meet nearly all my criteria....

  • Katana Edge Band Set from MLCS
    by twistsol
    Summary
    The setup for both bits in the set took some time to get right, but once set up properly the bits made mostly clean cuts. The reasoning behind the bearing placement on the bit set escapes me but all in all, the set performed well and functioned as advertised. ...

  • FlashCell cordless battery-less power screwdriver Review
    by LCHIEN
    I have owned a Coleman Flashcell screwdriver since about 2009. it does not replace the drill driver (Craftsman 19.2V C3 drill driver with lithium ion cells and clutch) but it replaces small powered screwdrivers for doing repetitive screw driving. The no longer sell them and haven't for several years. I've been wanting one to have handy in the garage shop or house rather than running back and forth.

    The advantage of a cordless, batteryless driver is that it uses a supercapacitor to drive...

  • HF Silver & Deming Drill Bits
    by Bill in Buena Park
    In a recent shop project to make a lathe chuck / center organizer, I needed to drill some holes to accommodate the MT2 shanks of my live centers and drill chucks. For my purposes (a nice snug fit at a certain height), I needed 11/16 holes. None of my forstner bits (also HF) were this size. For some threaded spur center inserts, I needed 9/16 holes. No love there among the forstners either.

    So I found this set of the Silver and Deming bits at HF: http://www.harborfreight.com/s...

  • Dremel vac operated Rotary tool
    by LCHIEN
    I saw this and Lowes has it for $30 and for some reason Amazon has it for $44, so I bought on a whim but its not a winner. The promise was a rotary tool and vacuum tool that cleared the debris as say you were engraving or grinding. It has the blue ring you turn to adjust that allows some vacuum to bypass and thus control speed. It has a few accessories and a clear guide for flat work. It fits most all dremel bits that are 1/8" diameter shank. In reality the RPMs were low (I measured 15,000 with...

  • 3M Prograde Precision flexible sanding sheets
    by sailor55330
    I gave this a shot from a local retailer the other day

    http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...293390692&rt=d. The product itself seems very well made. The abrasive is tight to the backing and shows no sign of flaking off as others do. I used 320 and found it to cut very well. I would actually say the 320 cut better than the red Diablo 220g from the BORG. The actual back...
