A Worthy bandsaw blade

A Worthy bandsaw blade

2376 days ago by GaryK | 20 comments »

I have been using these blades for years now and they are fantastic. They do a great jog resawing. They create no vibration and noise due to their variable tooth spacing from 3 to 4 TPI. Leaves a great finish also.I have cut perfect .093” think slices off of an 11 1/2” board. Fine Woodworking April 2004 has rated their Wood Slicer blade as “Best All-Round Performer” in their independent test for speed, flatness and smoothness! It also has a very thin blade of .022”.

Delta did it right for this drill press

2380 days ago by GaryK | 6 comments »

This heavy-duty 16-1/2-inch drill press from Delta will do the job. The 3/4-horsepower motor that can be wired for either 115 or 230 volts. It gives you an deep plunge length of 4-7/8 inches. Chuck holds up to a 5/8-inch-diameter bit. Solid cast-iron construction and a 3-1/8-inch column The table rotates, 45 degrees each way for drilling angles.On of my favorite features is the depth stop. Instead of screwing it up and down the shaft it hasa quick release button to dis-engage ...

Miter trimmer

Miter trimmer

These are great. I don’t know of a name brand one as they all seem pretty generic. If you make picture frames or do a lot of miters, these are invaluable. They allow you to trim off the smallest of shavings at a perfect 45 degrees.You can also set them to do 90 degree cuts. Mine was purchased at Rockler and was made in China. It works great though. Not muchto screw up in manufacturing. I usually just cut my miters close and use this to cut to perfect length.

A great little tool

A great little tool

2389 days ago by GaryK | 17 comments »

Here’s a great little tool for setting the angle on most everything. Bandsaw, Tablesaw, Mitersaw, Radial Arm Saw… The best part is the precision and speed in which you can do it.There are magnets on the bottom which allows you to stick it to anything steel. I will use a table saw for example here, but you can apply the same to all tools.If what you are trying to set is aluminum or something other than steel then you will need tohold it place. Here are the magnets:..For...
