As I wait for a friend to help me flip the table over, I get to the assembly of the legs. Note: If you don’t do a lot of squatting exercises, be prepared, you will be doing 24 reps for all the screws that go into the legs. Here are the legs assembled. All and All the legs go together real well, very little manipulation. Another note: if you want the leg protectors on the bottom of the legs (they are plastic), now is the time to put them on !! I opted not to use them and use rubber s...
Starting from complete scratch sounds like a daunting task as it will be full of mistakes. After much research, I decided on the Ridgid r4512 table saw to be my first. The first mistake I made was hurting my lower back getting this 268 pound monster in my VW hatchback. Once I got home, the question remained in my mind, “how am I going to get it out by myself?” Cut it out, thats what I did. After about an hour, it was out and my back was sore, but I was determined. The ta...
Totally set up R4512 cast iron table saw. Lee valley brand router table insert 05J25.01 router is a BOSCH 1619 EVS which is a beast. Outfeed table out of three door hinges and a piece of planed to thickness 2×4 and 5/8 birch MDF. Recycled front fence from old crosscut sled. Maple with a T-slot extrusion.

As I write this, I’m staring at three sets of drill/driver combination kits and my eyes hurt from scouring the web searching for reviews, pros and cons for each set. I’m torn between fleeting brand loyalty, the thought of what “might be” for me in the hobby, and the stark realization of who I am, what I do and how infrequently I do it. So, bring a writer by trade and unable to adequately convey to the CEO just how important this decision is and how difficult it will...
I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...
6 Inch ridgid jointer (jp06101) $100 dollars from a guy at work who didnt want it to see and rust away after only using it a handful of times, the pictures are after about 10 min of scrubbing with a scotchbrite pad and some wd-40, its even cleaner now after more scrubbing, this will reside down at my moms shop, she will get more use out of it more often than I will for a while, and the one who provided the birthday money that i wisely invested. Still trying to get my garage cleaned o...
Review of the RIDGID Oscillating Edge/ Belt Sander model # EB4424
Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #5: Ceiling Mount Completed. Blade Shroud Almost.
The ceiling mount is now completed with the exception of some tightening knobs. I screwed a few pieces of 2×4 across the ceiling joists since there was nothing above the directly above the table saw to attach the mount. I painted it white so it would blend in a little better with the shop. You can see that the mount is offset to the left of the blade but there is a horizontal L-Bracket that can be used to shift the shroud left or right over the blade. I had to use a couple of guide ...
