The ABCs of Picking Saw Blades

1586 days ago by knotscott | 31 comments »

There are a number of different factors that should be considered in saw blade selection. Decent quality is essential or you’re sunk from the beginning. The saw’s end performance is largely determined by proper setup and blade selection. You don’t need to spend big bucks to get a good blade, but more expensive blades typically increase your chances of getting good quality. As with many things, there are often a variety of choices that each have merit, so consider what’...

Current Saw Blade Bargains

290 days ago by knotscott | 16 comments »

Forrest, Infinity, Ridge Carbide, Freud Fusion, and Tenryu Gold Medal are all great saw blades. It’s hard to go wrong with any of them if you’re willing to plunk down $70-$125. Try getting a good blade with a budget in the $10-$40 range, and the odds of getting a good one fall dramatically. No need to despair….for those who missed out on the great Leitz/Irwin, Leitz/Delta, Onsrud, and CMT clearance deals in recent years, below is list of current deals that I think represe...

305 days ago by CentipedeSawhorse | 25 comments »

I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where I designed power tool attachments and accessories. Having the time to pursue projects that delight me instead of the owner of this company, I have decided to try to bring one of my best ideas yet to market. I would love to have your feedback on both the product and my approach to funding the project. I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where ...

Making an Internal Thien Baffle for a HF Dust Collector

419 days ago by Rex B | 13 comments »

I was lucky enough to get the popular Harbor Freight 2 HP dust collector for Christmas. People have modified that thing in every way imaginable, so I found plenty of inspiration out there when planning what to do with mine. I decided to keep it fairly simple: a Thien baffle inside the dust collector’s separator ring, to hopefully keep the dust in the bag and not in the filter. A lot of people have done this mod, but most of them don’t post pictures because it is so simple. So I fi...

Dewalt 735 Chip Collection/Stand #5: Results and Lessons Learned

371 days ago by Blackbear | 19 comments »

I learned a couple of things right off the first time I used the planer after installing it on this cabinet. The first thing learned was how powerful the Dewalt 735’s blower really was. The door chattered right against the bungie cords. To fix this issue, I installed a much stronger rachet strap in place of the top bungie. That totally resolved the door chattering issue. The second issue, discovered after the first, was the single filter I installed was not enough. You cou...

Drawknife from a file #2: roughing out the blade form

407 days ago by RobynHoodridge | 2 comments »

Having got the concept of how i was going to make my drawknife down in the form of the prototype that i showed in the previous entry of this series, i moved on to general shaping of the file. To turn it into the blade of the drawknife..I started with a file that had lost its job and sold its body, buried deep in a scrap yard..I wanted to use a file that didn’t taper at the tip (was rectangular) to minimize the material i’d have to remove to get to a dead-straight cutting edge. .An...
