Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig

Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig

476 days ago by AJswoodshop | 6 comments »

A few people asked me to do a review on my dovetail jig, so I thought I would do a review of my Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig. It’s a amazing jig, I’ve used it a few times and it is very handy to have. Positives--Includes the 4210 half blind template, and the 4212 through dovetail template. Each template works just how it should and I’m very happy with the results. -The straight bit and dovetail bit (1/2’’ shank) are included with the jig and they are very ni...

Kreg Pocket hole jig Jr.

Kreg Pocket hole jig Jr.

476 days ago by AJswoodshop | 15 comments »

I’ve been using this Kreg jig Jr. for over a year now, and it’s well worth the money. It works great and I’m very happy with it. Only a few issues but the price is great! Positives--Includes drill bit, drill bit stop, a driver bit for square head screws, square head screws, plugs, the manual, the case, and the jig. All of these things work great.-It’s small size can fit in tight areas. Negatives--It’s hard to keep the jig from sliding around, you have to cl...

Bessey Band clamp

Bessey Band clamp

477 days ago by AJswoodshop | 7 comments »

When you making 45 degree miters you can’t clamp it together using regular clamps. This is when a Band Clamp comes in handy. This bessey band clamp will allow you to clamp together 45 degree miters and keep the entire frame perfectly square. The corner clamp get hooked on to a belt, which clamps the frame together. When you need it, it’s the only thing that will do the job!

This bench top Disk sander comes in handy! Before I was using either my mouse sander, or a sanding drum in my drill press.

Positives,-Cast Iron table-Dust port which works well -Tilting Table,-1 1/2’’ HP motor-Easy to change sanding disk-Includes three sanding disk Negatives,-A little vibration-Not the best miter gauge It’s a great disk sander that I would highly recommend.

This Kreg Multi Mark is a excellent measuring and marking tool. It can be adjusted to a square, marking gauge, even a level. It has a measuring bar that is very accurate, which also slides in another slot and the can be used as a square. The level is also very accurate. It’s the perfect tool to layout lines on your workpiece. It’s a must have tool in every woodshop!

Kreg True flex featherboard.

Kreg True flex featherboard.

477 days ago by AJswoodshop | 11 comments »

For Christmas I asked for a featherboard. Before I got the featherboard I was using two pushsticks. One to hold the workpiece against the fence, and the other to push it through the saw. It worked well but it was a little uncomfortable. The Kreg true flex featherboard fixed all of those problems. The fingers on the featherboard push the workpiece tight against the fence, and it can adjust to fit the width of you workpiece. It can fit almost every T-slot, and runner track. It’s great for...

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

588 days ago by AJswoodshop | 7 comments »

I’m working on a bathroom and I needed to cut some tile. I wanted something that wasn’t really pricey, so I went with this HF central machinery tile/wet saw. The saw has a few problems, but for the price I’m very happy. The main problem was, that water will splash out of the saw, if you don’t have the blade guard on. With the blade guard on it’s hard to see where your cutting. Its a bench top tool, I used my scroll saw stand, just so I wouldn’t have to use ...

Porter Cable Table Saw review

Porter Cable Table Saw review

598 days ago by AJswoodshop | 3 comments »

I bought this table saw because my old one was falling apart. My old craftsman table saw I got at a garage sale, for $30.00. It worked for a few months, but then I found out about porter cable. But when I got the porter cable miter saw, ended up getting a porter cable table saw, I paid $300, with tax I paid about $330. The table saw stand is awesome, its very sturdy, and really easy to roll the table saw out of the way. A table saw needs a good fence, and miter gauge. The miter gauge that cam...
