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

2019 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 ...

Seeking Advice on Thickness Sanders

2453 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

1645 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

2169 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...

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

1616 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...

Dust Collection #3: Fine!....... particles that is

1696 days ago by PurpLev | 32 comments »

After many months in the planning, designing, and reding on other peoples builds of air cleaners, the day before Thanksgiving I came upon an ad on craigslist of a JDS Air-Tech 2000 Model 750. I figured that if I was to build one – it would end up costing about as much as the JDS model, but will not have the same filtration quality, it’ll be heavier (wood construction as opposed to metal frame), and it’ll take me time to build it. time that could be used to build woodworking ...

My Tools #6: Jet 16-32 drum sander

1479 days ago by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

Mom visited a couple of weeks back for 10 days. She tends to come out once per year in the summer to see me, her only son. She helped me replace some broken things in my continuing “everything’s breaking” period (broke a bit last week on the mill – pricey, too – my computer a week or two before that, and my TV shortly before that, sigh…). Then over dinner for her birthday somewhere nice we talked about woodworking, and my idea for making some things like cu...

Jet 18 inch Bandsaw (Baby!)

2363 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...

Videos #13: Assembling a Jet Lathe

593 days ago by tyskkvinna | 1 comment »

We got a fantastic Jet lathe in the workshop recently and decided to make a video of the assembly process. It’s pretty straightforward, but could be handy for reference before you try to put yours together. :)
