Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness #1: Where it starts

07-18-2017 03:21 AM by Tony Ennis | 4 comments »

After a few years of neglect, I recently started bringing my woodshop back to life. So much junk everywhere. I took old power tools, a tackle box full of stuff, and two beat up toolboxes (with some tools) down to the road. These toolboxes had been dropped from my father in-law’s truck 10 times. None of this stuff meant anything to me. That is, a dried up can of plumber’s putty and rusty cast iron fittings hold no sentimental value. Anything at the end of the road is fair gam...

My 5 Most Used RIDGID Cordless Tools

06-15-2017 05:49 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Not sure if any of you saw the cache of RIDGID tools I got a while back, but I have been trying all of them out for a few months and these are the 5 that I found really changed the way I work the most. I also include some really brief insight into each of the tools. These wouldn’t be the first 5 tools I would buy, but once you have a pretty well stocked shop, these are some good ways to TREAT YO SELF! Thanks for watching, please like, share, and subscribe… View on YouTube Wood...

Another Craigslist Diamond in the Rough

02-05-2017 07:13 PM by GreaseMonkey2275 | 4 comments »

Every once in a while one of us comes across a tool on CL that looks to be too good to be true. I was perusing CL one night and came across a 12” Ridgid Sliding Compound Miter Saw for $100. I look at the post, the seller had noted a broken handle and they did not have any further use for the saw as the project they needed it for was complete. The post was three days old and I figured there was no way the saw was still up for sale until I looked on Craigslist two days later and there ...

Odds 'N' Ends #7: Micro-Tapering on the Jointer

03-14-2016 08:09 PM by ThomasLightle | 4 comments »

I call any taper that cannot be accurately cut on the table saw a micro taper. Usually anything under 1 degree. The taper I needed to cut was 0.2 degrees, so the only tool for the job was the jointer. The process was pretty simple. I needed to taper 1/16” over an 18-inch length. I made a 1/16” spacer and raised my jointer to a 1/16” cut. I placed one end of the panel on the spacer and ran the panel through the jointer. As the front edge of the panel hits the knives, t...

Making Ridgid R4512 inserts

03-09-2016 03:22 AM by Kelly | 2 comments »

I recently went out purchased a Ridgid R4512 table saw and needed some zero clearance inserts (ZCI), but at $30+ an insert I decided to take a crack at making some. Anyone who has this saw knows that these inserts are a little tricky as there are a number of small pockets where the leveling screws rest and the insert must be cut out to accommodate them. Also, there is a slight bevel just inside of the throat so the insert has to have a very thin lip around it. As I started looking...

I'm New: You May Hate Me

12-07-2015 11:02 PM by RevEric | 9 comments »

Hi Everyone. I’ve been trolling this blog for so long that I thought I had an account. I decided to actually get one a few weeks ago. Lately, I’ve been looking to upgrade my table saw. For years I’ve used a Ryobi BT3100. I know everyone has their opinions on what the best table saw is. For me, the Ryobi has been great and met almost all my needs. The fence has been dead on accurate and dust collection excellent. I really like the saw but decided it was time to upgrade. ...

New Shop in the Raw #2: Continuing Build of Miter Saw Station

11-22-2015 04:09 AM by builtinbkyn | 15 comments »

Whew! Finally figured out this whole blog series thing :O Yesterday and today was all about building the casework for the miter saw station. Realizing that the floor is less than even across it’s surface, not level from side to side and the casework is almost 10’ long, I decided to make the assembly in three parts. This will allow me to use leveling feet on each cabinet to compensate for the unevenness of the floor across the length of the whole assembly. I’ll first ...

The Saw #2: The Beginning - Legs, Flip, and Fence. plus tips.....

02-26-2015 04:47 PM by Mike C. | 1 comment »

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...
