Great deal for beginning woodworkers

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

2200 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 4 comments »

This is a blade I was curious about for a long time and I can tell you that this blade is great. I was originally looking into the 40 tooth version of this because Wood magazine had rated it really great but this one just caught my eye because it has more teeth, better for crosscutting, and it has large gullets every five teeth for sawdust removal. This makes it great. I was worried that my “Under powered saw” couldn’t handle ripping with a 50 tooth blade but this thing has ...

A+ Router

A+ Router

2200 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 8 comments »

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

Wow, is all I have to say. This was a part graduation part birthday present and I have to say I love this thing. It has made my woodworking experience a whole lot better. I bought about fifty feet of PVC and ran it along all the walls in my shop connecting it to my jointer, table saw, bandsaw, router table, and put in a handy floor sweep. I even put in a shop vac port that can hook right up to a shop vac hose and I can use it for my miter saw or for sanding or routing. I installed blast gates...

Great little product

Great little product

This is the jig saw that I got about three years ago. It is a great little saw, and cuts like you wouldn’t belive. There is a few things that I love about this saw, first, the fact that it has dust collection is a big plus in my book. There is a little shroud, if I am saying that correctly that captures a decent amount of dust, and there is a blower on the other side to push it to the shroud. Another cool feature is the quick disconect blade thingy. It is really simple ot change from a ...

Good for the price-that's it

Good for the price-that's it

Here are the bits that I bought about three months ago for some up and coming projects. I like these bits becasue they came in a huge set, I belive 16, and it was only $25. They make flat bottomed holes, angled holes, and are just very nice. They do have there downside tough. They are very hard to use if not useing in a drill press, they tend to not want to start if your useing a drill. Some of them also have a slight wobble which is not so great, but most of them are perfect. They also tend ...

Darn good product

Darn good product

This bandsaw is great. It allows me to cut curves, very thin peices, and resaw, and its only $150, thats right only $150. It is a great buy for the money. If your wanting one and you don’t want to spend a fortune for a huge bandsaw, then this is a nice substitute. It has about a 5 inch resaw compacity, which isn’t the best but alot better than the compeditors benchtop models. You would think for $150 it would be a plastic pile of junk, well that is certainly not the case here. The...

One Great Product

One Great Product

2326 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 10 comments »

I was wanting a jointer for a long time. I was looking, but most were upwards of $400, and I am not willing to fork over that kind of money, so I opted for a cheaper, but still efficient one. I saw the Delta, but it had aluminum table, and although it looked very nice, the lightness of it didn’t make me really that happy about it. I was going to get the 4 inch craftsman jointer, when I said to myself, I will grow, I will later want the bigger version, I will be mad I made the desision t...
