Your Questions About Carpenter Tools Names

Carol asks…

What is the name of the tool that you use to smooth the edges of wood when you are building things like tables?

I am trying to buy my dad something to help him build things out of wood. He want to build some furniture, but he don’t have the tools to do it. I saw on hgtv, a carpenter was building a table, and he used a power tool to smooth the edges of the wood so that the baby wouldn’t scratch herself against it. Anybody know what it’s called? Or a good brand?

Dusty answers:

Belt sander, Palm sander or a detail sander.
Router is a aggressive wood forming tool for creating decorative edges.

Replacing windows in older brick home?

I’m replacing all the windows in my home with vinyl, double hung, tilt out windows. There are so very many different brands and I would like to buy the right ones. I want to buy the quality windows without paying for a lot of name in the product. Is there a big difference in the lower end units as compared to the upper end windows? I’m looking at Atrium 4700, Vision 2000, and ReliaBilt. What do you think? I’m not a carpenter but I want to do these myself. I have the tools and the time since I’ve retired. I was an electrician all my life.

Dusty answers:

There are differences between the good brands and the cheap ones, but even the cheap ones are better than the counter hung sashes in the older homes.

I personally wouldn’t put double hung windows in. No one ever opened the top sash any way, but still it would make the improvement more valuable.

If it was a rental, I’d do it cheap. If it was my house, I’d purchase better ones, though price doesn’t indicate quality all the time.

If you search around, you can usually get them built to fit and installed for around $250 a window or less. I mean, retirement is for boating and playing golf, not installing windows. LOL

Good Luck
