Robo Reel Long Overdue Rated A+++

426 days ago by Bertha | 8 comments »

This review is long overdue, which is a good thing. I wanted a long courtship. I don’t know if this thing has exploded into the World’s greatest invention or not; I’ve been out of it a bit. .See blog first at:http://lumberjocks.com/Bertha/blog/31229.OK, this thing seems expensive, that’s the first response. My experience with the unit warrants the price..Whether than go through the pros/cons, I’ll just stream-of-consciousness my experience with it..I installed it...

Poor Communication

Poor Communication

818 days ago by Bertha | 30 comments »

I ordered two woodscrews and two garters on April 3, 2012 for $320.00. I sent a total of 8 messages to check on the status of my order. I said, “I’m not asking for the World, just a bit of communication” (both on the site form and via e-mail). Without a single word, my payment was refunded on April 25, 2012. The credit hasn’t posted yet but I have every reason to believe it will. The right thing to do would have been to simply tell me he couldn’t fill the order. ...

The magnets register directly onto the cutter head; they never attach to the table surface! The reviews were pretty bad, actually, but it works as advertised. It’s made of some heavy duty type plastic with really hard-tugging rare Earth magnets. T...

There have been several threads concerning replacement knives for the Powermatic 54A longbed 6” jointer..1) the Global Tooling knives fit2) they were shipped in record time (even with the Holidays)3) they were well packaged4) they were insanely cheap5) 5 stars You are seeing that price correctly. I mean, shipping su*ks but what are you gonna do. Wait for a multiple knife order and it’ll be less painful. I am very impressed with this company, and that’s hard to...

Wonderful Hand Made Bowsaw available from Ebay Stores

Wonderful Hand Made Bowsaw available from Ebay Stores

1225 days ago by Bertha | 16 comments »

About a week ago, a fellow Lumberjock (Loren) directed me to a handmade bowsaw available on Ebay Stores. http://myworld.ebay.com/cmehandworksinc I ordered the 14” maple variety for $62.00 including shipping, which I thought was quite reasonable. It arrived well-package, disassembled in a long shipping tube, and came with detailed re-assembly instructions. I found the unfinished bow to be of excellent craftsmanship and the pieces fit with high tolerance. It is an ...
