Dust Collection #2: infiltration.... filter me this, filter me that

2057 days ago by PurpLev | 28 comments »

I ordered a 0.3 micron replacement filter from Wynn Environmental to replace my Jet DC1100 30 micron bag. Originally I was going to make a simple review for people to benefit from my experience with the new filter I got… but since it had gotten a bit more complicated, I figured this is blog-worthy, and the ‘regular’ review will follow once I experience more the performance of the filter. Disclaimer: I have had nothing but great experience from Wynn Environmental, from ...

Jet 18 inch Bandsaw (Baby!)

2402 days ago by designerboy | 13 comments »

FIRST BLOG ever, so bear with me… Well This week (tues 5/2/08) I will be collecting my new Jet 18 inch Bandsaw. I have a close friend that made a great spot on a spec sheet that I thought I shouldpass on (if your‘re not learning, what is the point!).I always go the way of bigger is better (ie more capacity/power and I will then notreach the tools limits which means I will have these tools for at least my lifetime.)something I picked up from my old man, anyway… But I learn...

Seeking Advice on Thickness Sanders

2491 days ago by Blake | 19 comments »

I have been saving my pennies for a thickness sander. I really need one for surfacing small stock for boxes. There seems to be only two (and a half) models in my price range: Grizzly G0459 12” and the Performax 628900 Mini 10-Inch (which as far as I can tell is identical to the Jet 10-20 Plus?) Grizzly G0459 12”: $495.00 on Amazon plus shipping, only one review (5 star). Performax 628900 Mini 10-Inch: $499.99 on Amazon with free shipping, reviews state tracking problems. ...

Wood Art #5: Harald Huf's 1:6 scale, twin jet-powered, r/c Sukhoi Su-27 jet fighter

1684 days ago by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I can’t believe the amount of work some people can accomplish. This is an absolutely monumental build of a Sukhoi Su-27, aka “Flanker-B” that mostly uses wood for the mold making, but even that is pretty solid craftsmanship. I think the rest is interesting/impressive to anyone who makes, creates, or builds anything. I thought I was done clicking through pages of pictures at least a dozen times, but there were always more. He did all the wood and aluminum/hand hammered riv...

Dust Collection #1: (Finally) Upgrading from a Shop-Vac

2208 days ago by PurpLev | 11 comments »

So for the longest time I’ve heard how much a Shop-vac doesnt quite cut it when it comes to larger machines, and how much quieter “real” DC machines are compared to a shop-vac, but being a weekend warrior, my budget is limited, and space was a big issue for me until recently (we just moved, and I have a full garage to work with now – will be blogged soon as well). Lately I was eyeing some Delta AP400 machines that float on craigslist once in a while for very attract...

Contractor Saw Refurbishing #1: Good news: I got it home. Bad news: Now I have to do something with it!

2527 days ago by slaphitter | 4 comments »

I found an old, well-worn Jet contractor saw locally through Craigslist. It came with a Delta Unifence, so even with some replacement parts and repairs factored in, I got it for a steal at $175. It was quite a job to horse it home by myself, but with the help of an appliance dolly I managed to get it out of its old basement and into my basement. I thought it might be fun for someone if I occasionally post updates here. And I certainly welcome all the tips and suggestions that anyone mig...

Radio Control Jet....

1415 days ago by Arbo | 17 comments »

Years and years ago I drew up plans for a wood built model of an X-29 jet. There were issues back then and it was never successful. Recently I brought this one out of mothballs and started building a new one with needed changes. Yeah, it’s not woodworking as one might think of it, but it is ply and balsa, which is wood. ;) Need to cut and attach the wings, fiberglass the whole thing, cut control surfaces and put in the electronics…

My Tools #3: More of my new JET JSG-96CS 6"x48" belt/9" disk sander

1654 days ago by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

First, some good news. The dust blowing all over last time was not indicative of poor dust collection in this machine. After closing up shop for the day, it bugged me all night, and I figured there must have been something I missed. There was. Under the belt on the back of the machine is a blast gate. D’oh. Opening that, the dust collection becomes quite good. No more dust spewing in all directions, but this thing sands very aggressively, so hard sanding does result in a little bit kick...

Jet cabinet saw re-hab #1: a new cener piece for the shop..... needs a little TLC

794 days ago by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

I posted about my good fortune scoring this early 80’s Jet CTAS10 with Biesemeyer fence and 50” table…. Here she is…. just needs a little TLC I hit the top with course steel wool to get the flakey red rust off upon taking things apart I have these observations… The Biesemeyer fence is really rugged…. tube is straight as and arrow, even after some rough handling, and the ‘L’ brackets are really rugged… must ...

random #17: I finally have a proper wood lathe!

1938 days ago by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

Mom visited last week, and with some ideas of things she wanted me to build, we checked out Anderson Plywood (LA, CA) – she loves zebrawood :) – and my favorite place: Rockler (Torrance, CA). While at Rockler, she fell in love with some turned bottle stoppers made by Robert, who I think might be a manager there, and decided she wanted me to make a bunch for her and her friends, starting with a set of 3 for one friend in particular. They only had 2 chrome wine bottle stopper har...
