Grizzly G0690 even with problems still good value

Grizzly G0690 even with problems still good value

04-05-2013 04:49 AM by pjones46 | 46 comments »

Based on many of the reviews I have read, the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet saw was the best bang for the buck. As there have been many reviews given I will only add a few comments to those that I have read. The saw arrived without a ding, dent or missing part and went together well. I was very disappointed with wiring as it appeared to be only 14 gauge wire with a 220 plug configuration I had never seen. I had my electrician rewire it completely with 12 gauge wire and use a more conventional tw...

Finishing Wax

Finishing Wax

03-05-2013 03:00 AM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

For years I have been using a wax as the last coat over my finish and never really thought about brand until I made some tests. First let me say I have used just about every over-the-counter paste wax known to the retail marrket: Johnson Paste Wax, Butcher’s, Minwax, Liberon, Renaissance, BriWax, etc, etc. All seemed to do the job but while finishing a project for my wife, I decided to do a little test to see which one gave the highest sheen after steel wooling the finished varnish. I ...

Inexpensive but surprisingly good

Inexpensive but surprisingly good

Just purchased a Numax SP123 pinner from Amazon for Under $30. I had a project to apply some fine moulding which would be split by 18 guage brads and did a seach on pinners. Did not want to spend alot as I did not know if I would ever use it again and found this one and by looking it appeared to be good value. Anyway, got it along with some 3/4” pins and it really works great so far. It will shoot 1/2’ to 1” pins and has has a setting which adjust the depth of the ma...

4 1/2" Blade for PC 314 Trim Saw

Recently I needed a new blade for my 314 trim saw to cut 1/2 and 3/4 Birch Ply. I did some research and all of my sources implied that I should look for a thin kerf blade. Having tried many top rated blades from manufactures you all know and love I choose the Tenryu PT-11536 4-1/2” Carbide Tipped Saw Blade ( 36 Tooth ATAF Grind – 3/8” Arbor. Power Tool Blade The manufacturer claimed that the blade was “For clean and easy trim work on the Porter Cable trim saw...

Doweling Made Easy

Doweling Made Easy

03-02-2011 10:55 AM by pjones46 | 8 comments »

Recently while planning a project of a cherry desk with Queen Anne legs I was having a difficult time deciding how to attach the skirt boards to the pillars of the legs. The options were to use mortise and tenons, biscuits, or dowels. Each of which created their own set of problems. Using biscuits I felt that there would be lack of strength and alignment difficulties, mortise and tenon would be difficult as a jig would have to be created to hold the pillars while mortising as well as not ...
