  • Knife marking pencil Accutrax

    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 original blade and it came with a pack of 5 and like utility blades, can be reversed when too worn. Being in a knife handle, its perfect to mark with just as you'd cut a piece of paper or cardboard.
    Never needs sharpening, extend it as it wears with the blade retractor of the knife handle. Much sturdier than a mechanical pencil lead for marking on rough or uneven wood.

      I tried those a few years ago when McFeely's included a 3 pack in an order as a bonus. I'm too ham fisted for them and broke all three within a few days. Your mileage may very if you're normal. I keep .5mm mechanical pencils in the shop when I need to make fine pencil lines but usually use my left handed marking knife.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....
