Episode 46 – Tools We Want But …

46_DominoIn this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, Chuck and Glen talk about tools that wish they had, but just haven’t yet purchased. Every woodworker has at least one, and the 360 guys are no different! What’s interesting is that both guys have built projects using their “wished for” tools and know that the tools are valuable in the shop. But what has stopped them from pulling the trigger? Plus, find out which member of the 360 team has spent time squaring the ends of routed mortises.

Join the guys twice each week for six lively minutes of discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Chuck & Glen, and sometimes a surprise guest, all have their own opinions. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don’t, but the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

  1. Hey Glen and Chuck
    Love the new site ,it’s almost like sitting down and being right there listening to the pods.

    I bought a biscuit joiner about 10 years ago made by Elu ( which is black and decker) I have never seen one since. Bought it at Highland Hardware. Well anyway I was gluing up a seat for a Windsor chair and thought I would be smart and use some biscuits to give it a little more strength, not thinking to place them toward the bottom. You guess it. When I scooped out the bottom, the biscuits appeared. How dumb was that.

    I put it away for years, but like a spare tire, it’s always there when I need it. Thank goodness for milk paint. I have four Windsors at my Breakfast table and nobody knows about the flaws. Last, think about how long I thought before I bought a high end louver jig. I’ll let you know if it was worth it soon.

    Cheers

  2. I’ve been interested in getting a large lathe for years. Been looking at Powermatic, Oneway, Stubby, Robust, etc. Hard to decide especially with that much money invested. Would really like to see an unbiased discussion. Interested in knowing the country of origin, are they made in USA or just built here? I want to turn large bowls and spindles. If you don’t review this large of a “tool” I would be interested in reviews of chucks for the lathes.

  3. Those Dominos are really cool, but holy smokes….$$$
