Here's my firsthand experience with the Fein MultiMaster:
Here in North Georgia we just experienced what is now being called our worst flood in recorded history. The Chattahoochee River spilled over its banks like never before. I was called upon for help and advice by some of my regular customers who were struggling to deal with the fact that their most prized possessions were floating in their own homes before being laid to rest by the receding sludge.
It's a great time to buy this highly versatile bowl chuck for your lathe. Teknatool's SuperNova2 4-jaw
scroll chuck incorporates the latest in chucking technology. Its 4"
steel body is nickel plated for long life. Its quick-ratio scroll mechanism is driven by a ball end
hex wrench, which is easy to insert and can be tilted away from your workpiece to avoid
interference. Its composite backplate encloses the back of the body to keep out dust and dirt and it
includes 24 3mm indexing holes for precision positioning.

Festool Drill Now $400,
THE LAST DRILL
You'll Ever Need to Buy
Festool has repackaged their new 12+3 and 15+3 lithium-ion powered drills making them a bit easier to afford. Previously each model came with 4 different drill chucks. Now each drill comes with 2 standard Fastfix chucks: the 1/2" drill chuck and the Centrotec chuck. The right-angle chuck and the eccentric chuck are available as optional accessories.
Both models still include two high-efficiency lithium-ion batteries, smart charger, advanced electronic clutch, 3-year warranty and stackable Systainer. The T12+3 sells for $400. The T15+3 sells for $450.
• The drill's extreme light weight (thanks to the lithium battery) means less operator fatigue.
• The exclusive Fastfix chucking system allows each drill to perform the function of several different drills.
• The second generation brushless motor is electronically protected against burnout and maintains constant power regardless of load or speed.
• Tests have shown the Festool T+3 drills outperform the competition's 15 and 18 volt drills. You can literally drive more than 1,000,000 screws with one of these drills. Built to last a lifetime, it is literally the last drill you will ever need to buy.

You'll Love our Mail-In Blade Sharpening Service
"Recently I used your saw sharpening service and I wanted to let you know that they did a super job on my blade. I not only needed the blade sharpened, but one tip was missing and they replaced it as well. Turn around time was only about a week from my home in Tennessee. The blade cuts as good as a new one. You can bet that I will be using you again when needed."
Thanks, Charles Arkon
WOOD SLICER Testimonial
I have a 12" Jet bandsaw that I absolutely hated. It couldn't cut a straight line on a piece of 1/8" ply. A friend told me to check out your Wood Slicer resawing bandsaw blade. I went to your site to check it out. At first I kind of choked when I saw the price of the blade. I then read your testimonials and decided to give one a try (you do guarantee that I will like it).
The first piece of wood I cut was a chunk of mango. It went well, but then again, it is a softer wood. So I decided to try a piece of Koa as it is a bit harder... cut like butter. Being the skeptic I am, I decided to put it to what I considered an extreme test. I have a large chunk of desert ironwood that has been sitting around for a while (because I just can't cut it). In previous attempts, I could barely slice a 2" section. The results were not pretty, it took forever and a day to cut, and the dust was incredible.
I figured what the heck, I am going to make this blade cry, so I put a four inch thick
slab of ironwood on the bandsaw, turned it on and it cut through it without a problem. There was no smoking, no
dust clouds, and the finish on the cut side of the wood was unbelievable. Bottom line, I will
NEVER buy another band saw blade other than this one. It is everything you said it was. Please feel
free to use me as a reference. I would love to be able to help other woodworkers discover this
blade. On a side note... I no longer hate my bandsaw.

Highland Woodworking Gift Certificates
An awesome present that's always appreciated by just about any woodworker anywhere.
For decades we have offered milk paint, the wood finish that was historically used on early American furniture. It's appropriate for any project where an earth-tone finish is desired. Milk paint comes in powdered form which you mix with water. When applied, it dries flat with a rustic texture.
We are pleased to announce that we now also offer SafePaint, a brand new milk paint product especially formulated for use as an environmentally-friendly wall paint.
More good news: First-time users of our milk paint products can receive a $5 mail-in rebate.
