Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

12-10-2016 03:15 PM by becikeja | 0 comments »

I have a small hobby shop and like to have my tools on mobile bases. The Shop Fox Mobile base seemed well made and strong. Assembly was simple enough, and it was easy to move into place and with a simple turn of the stabilizing screws quickly became immobilized when the bandsaw was in use. I was very happy with the product. A couple of weeks ago I took on the task of cleaning the shop. Behind the Bandsaw I found a chunk of rubber. I could not figure out where it came from. Then I be...

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

12-10-2016 02:22 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 0 comments »

Most of the time I write a review of a product after I give it a period of time to break or at least after a couple of extensive projects. I’ve decided to review this one after about two hours of use. Just wanted to as I was impressed. I’ll be back if things should go south over time. My Bosch sander, which I really liked, bit the dust a bit to soon for my tastes. It was a really good electric sander that had low vibration and worked well over the past three years. Since I&#...

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

12-09-2016 10:02 PM by Jim Jakosh | 6 comments »

I finally ordered one of these collet systems from PSI because it has more range than the collets I how have and they can be used in the wood lathe or the metal lathe .All the collets came wrapped in plastic bags and oiled and the whole set is in a red plastic box. The collet holder is threaded for 1”-8 and it has a 3/4- 16 adapter for use on a mini lathe too.I thought the best way to evaluate them was to use an indicator and check for run out with a ground pin of the nominal sizes of t...

Generic German-Made Rip and Cross Cut Saws

Generic German-Made Rip and Cross Cut Saws

12-07-2016 01:15 PM by cicerojoe | 7 comments »

These hand saws are from Traditional Woodworker, a store based in Texas. You can buy either separately but you get a discount if you buy them as a set. They are labelled “Made in Germany” but otherwise have no markings. The handles look to be Beech and have simple steel hardware. If I had to choose my favourite between the two, it would be the rip saw had no problems with red oak and easily chews through douglas fir. When using this saw, gravity seems to provide much of the fo...

Lift gate service dropped it right at my shop door. pulled the saw and smaller pallet off of the delivery pallet and into the shop with my fridge dolly. Not too much trouble.Got to it on Sunday to begin set up. took about an hour to get it onto the Shop Fox mobile base. No helper available…. Everything was going just fine until I tried to install the rear rail to the table for the fence. It has 4 bolts to do this talk, two M10-1.5&...

Poor Design

Poor Design

12-05-2016 04:41 PM by Manitario | 5 comments »

I needed a larger drill press and wanted something with a 6” stroke. I settled on this drill press without too much thought or research. The CWI Bullett (I’ll give CWI the benefit of the doubt that “Bullett” was an intentional spelling error) seemed to fit my needs and there was a good deal on shipping, so I made the order. On arrival, it was very apparent that this was simply a General International 75-260 drill press that was spray painted black and had a differen...

JessEm Wood Sabre Marking Gauge Makes the Cut

JessEm Wood Sabre Marking Gauge Makes the Cut

12-02-2016 09:15 PM by RichTaylor | 0 comments »

I had been looking for a good marking gauge. There are several out there that are great products, but when I saw the JessEm Wood Sabre gauge, I had to have one. I have the JessEm router lift and the 08350 doweling jig, so I expected that their marking gauge would live up to my expectations. I was not disappointed. The fit and finish is on par with their other fine products. It’s solidly built, and weighs in at 17 ounces. The face is approximately 3 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches t...

Oppfinneren, or The Inventor, is a Norwegian TV-documetary series, available for free streaming on the broadcaster’s Web-player. Allthoug the show’s in norwegian, it is supposedly available world wide. Not sure if english subtitles are provided, but even without understanding a word, this should be eyecandy for any woodworker. It’s a show in its first season, following an ingenious man and his family on their path to the goal of “Building a self-sufficient mechanic...

My new branding iron

My new branding iron

12-01-2016 01:40 AM by BurlyBob | 10 comments »

I’d kicked this around for a while and after the wife gave me the green light I ordered a branding iron from Terry Desilets, Custom Branding irons. I’ve played with it a little and tonight gave it a work out. I really like the looks of my brand. After reading his instructions about the branding surface I’ll be doing a better job in the future. First off, flat smooth and clean, that means no varnish. One of the issues I ran into tonight. I branded a bunch of projects th...
