TSC-200 Crosscut Sled

If you caught the last issue of Popular Woodworking, you might have noticed a photo or two in the cigar humidor article featuring a new crosscut sled. The TSC-200 Crosscut Sled from Infinity Tools is a pretty nifty little sled, and if my initial project or two with it are any indication, it will be a great asset to the shop.

A Bargain Honing Jig and How To Improve It

When I first learned how to sharpen, I bought a very simple and inexpensive honing jig made in England by Eclipse. Today, the same jig is widely available under many diff erent brand names and often costs less than $15. It works quite well—I’ve used mine for years— but I’ve made a few small refinements to it. The jig’s body is aluminum, so it’s very easy to modify using a file or disc sander.

How does Dremel's newest Rotary Tool stack up to one from 30 years ago?

When evaluating a new tool, there are two paths often taken—how does the tool function for its intended purpose, and how does it improve upon what came before it? When looking at the former, the new 8260 Cordless Smart Rotary Tool score a perfect 10! It’s powerful, the battery life exceeds expectations, and the app is well designed and thoughtful. Looking at the latter—specifically comparing it to a circa-1992 Dremel 395 I “borrowed” from my Dad in college (sorry, Dad!)—we start to find a more interesting narrative of progress.

Bosch GEX18V-5N Random Orbit Sander

Bosch recently introduced new 12V and 18V brushless cordless random orbit sanders. In addition to the latest brushless motor technology, Bosch paid special attention to lowering the center of gravity of the tool, allowing your hand to be closer to the material. We tested the 18V version and found it to be a great all-around sander.
