  • Peachtree Pro Clamps and Fence option

    I recently purchased the 24 inch Peachtree Pro Clamp and the Fence accessory for use on my bandsaws and shaper. This is a well built clamp of incredible stregth. In the one photo I,m actually lifting the shaper off the floor on 1 side with the clamp pressure alone. The fence is a very solid piece of aluminum thats attached to the Pro clamp via t-bolts and a slot on the clamp. I would highly recommend this as an alternative to other more expensive fences. These clamps come with a variety of attachments available at Peachtree Woodworking. Including a saw and router attachment that would convert your saw to a tracksaw as well as an attachment to cut small logs on your bandsaw. Its a great tool for the money and would highly recommend it to anyone

      Those are the correct prices, Fortunately when I ordered mine it was a free shipping deal. With regard to the idea of placing a wedge at the end of the clamp thats exactly what I do to adjust for drift. The pressure applied to the clamp comes in 3 stages so the speak with the final a brute just to push the handle all the way down. Thats why they have the extra long clamp handle accessory. When I place a small 10-15 degree wedge made of a softwood(pine, poplar) in the end between the table and clamp, then place the clamp in the 1 st clamping position and make any adjustment before finally pushing it all the way down. Usually a light tap with my trusty rubber mallet allows for any extra compensation as needed. Its really a nice as heck clamp and I,m getting the resaw kit as well for making some box lumber out of my firewood stack as well as the 36 incher for an additional fence for the router. I foresee these becoming quite a useful tool for anyone and eventually get several more to help with gluing and ripping and routing in the near future.

  • A review of the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop Kit
    by twistsol

    Summary
    I built my miter station last summer and used the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop Kit. The kit was just the starting point. 8 feet of track and a single flip stop didn’t meet my needs since I was building a miter station the width of my shop, nearly 24 feet. I added four 48” pieces of top track and three additional swing stops so I could have two left and two right. Finally, I added metric rules to the top. Total cost breakdown is as follows

  • Review of VIX-type Self Centering drill bits
    by LCHIEN
    I have always had trouble mounting small hardware on small wood boxes, with the hasps and hinges always looking slightly off perfectly square - particularly a problem with flat head screws and countersunk hardware which aligns the hardware to the hole location and centers on the hole.

    I'm talking small wood screws. I place and mark the hardware carefully and mark the center of the hole with a sharp awl.
    The problem comes about with small bits like 1/16 and 5/64 and 3/32"...

  • Grizzly Overarm Blade Guard review.
    by twistsol
    Since my new shop is in the basement, dust collection is a bit more important than when I had my own building and could do as I pleased in the shop. With that in mind, I upgraded the dust collection on my table saw. I purchased the Grizzly Overarm Blade Guard to use with the saw.

    First impressions were that this is an extremely solid and well built unit. It's made mostly of steel and connects to a 4" DC hose. There were a number of issues getting it set up and installed, and a...

  • Kreg KMA 3220 5mm Shelf Pin Jig
    by twistsol



    I decided to look for the rock bottom cheapest 32mm drilling system available that would let let me create real 5mm holes spaced 32mm apart, that was easy to use, and didn’t require a bunch of setup time. I’m really surprised at how much I like this little Keg jig especially when you consider the price of $34.99, and it has everything included. There were a couple of jigs cheaper but you needed to buy a self-centering 5mm bit to go along with them so they would...

  • Knife marking pencil Accutrax
    by LCHIEN
    Here's a tool I found useful for marking. Accutrax pencil blade marking knife.



    I have one I've been using on and off for a while. Its a fine pencil lead in the shape of a utility blade that can be installed in any utility knife handle and used with a straight edge, combination square, saddle square etc. to mark easily seen, fine lines on wood..

    Here's mine. I have not broken it, it seems to be quite sturdy. The sharp edge lasts a long time. I'm still on the...

  • Saddle squares
    by LCHIEN
    Hey, I'm sharing one of my favorite tools. A Veritas Saddle Square. Actually I have two in different sizes. This is the large size for marking 2x4 and 4x4 (shown on 4x4 here). One of those tools that makes woodworking a pleasure.



    They're great for continuing lines from side to side. And even side to opposite side.
    Works really well when the board has a rounded edge or some wane where the edge is not really sharp and square but the two adjacent faces are square to...
