Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

1352 days ago by knotscott | 12 comments »

A few weeks ago I added this blade guard to my Shop Fox W1677. Even though I’m aware of the risks, I’m admittedly one of those who finds most stock blades guards to be cumbersome and even somewhat more dangerous because they severely obscure my view of the cut. (I realize that viewing the cut isn’t necessary, but I’m much more comfortable when I can see it) However I am a strong advocate for using a good splitter or riving knife, and have had the BORK riving knife on...

Precision Rotary Carving Tool

I wanted to recommend this tool after using it for over a month. I have a variety of roatary tools that I use for carving, in addition to traditional hand tools.

Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

Grizzly 8" jointer comparisions

Grizzly 8" jointer comparisions

2130 days ago by tooldad | 21 comments »

It is not too often someone other than a writer from a woodworking magazine gets to buy 2 different models of the same tool and compare them. I looked through the Grizzly catalog and website and did some paper comparision. I chose the G0586 for the school shop. It was $100 cheaper and had handwheel adjustments for both the tables and the fence. Once I got down to Springfield to pickup the tools, I went shopping for myself (this was planned) My first intention was to get the same jointe...
