Meterk, NeJe, etc. 1500mW Laser Engraver

Meterk, NeJe, etc. 1500mW Laser Engraver

10-17-2018 07:00 PM by Andybb | 1 comment »

I grabbed this machine off of Amazon using a $100 gift card that I had. I also did a little research on these. They are inexpensive because they are made using the stripped down laser and transport systems built into a gazillion blu-ray and cd burners with virtually no modification other than the circuit board. They are basically all the same, so Neje, Meterek, Qiilo, Sixdu, Decaker…etc. same guts. This one came with software that says Neje on it, so it’s generic. Here is a v...

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

10-17-2018 03:15 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Here you will see a 32 degree angled mobile stand to help with cross cutting large panels.Just kidding :) Just me wiggling it into place.For longest time, I used a mini pallet jack and DIY stands for my Powermatic 66 and Unisaw. With the PM66 off to a better home, only the Unisaw remains with me. I never liked the saw being raised 4-5” higher due to the DIY stand but put up with it, til now. With upcoming outfeed assembly table, I wanted the saw as low as possible. Way too many ric...

vonHanke Branding Iron

vonHanke Branding Iron

10-15-2018 03:02 PM by CL810 | 6 comments »

I had been thinking about purchasing a branding iron when I stumbled on a thread about electric vs non-electric branding irons. I was quite surprised to see the last post from Martin vonHanke offering a branding iron to the first responder willing to write a review. After visiting his website I decided to take him up on his offer. Martin was quick to mention that I should write an honest review; if there was anything I didn’t like to report it. And I will, though it is minor. S...

A Lot of Issues

A Lot of Issues

10-08-2018 02:56 PM by WoodyS4S | 20 comments »

We recently acquired a new Oneida 5HP Dust Gorilla Pro with Smart Boost. After watching an episode of “The Wood Whisperer” on youtube and doing some research we decided to order one. BTW no one is paying us to write this review, we have no endorsements. Everything arrived on a crate and it was mostly well packaged, the large HEPA filter had a little damage to one of the gaskets but nothing major. The first issue were the instructions, or lack thereof. The only instructions...

Craiglist Find

Craiglist Find

10-08-2018 12:48 PM by mikewalt | 7 comments »

Picked this up off craiglist, my best guess is its a 37-220, serial# 70-1635, but its hard to tell for sure. Had to order new bearings for it, as one was frozen.A well made tools for its age, and even after sitting in poor condition was easily dissembled and reassembled. All parts were were made with quality materials, as you can see the brass block that lubricated the screw drives.This is a good tool for a small project worker. It dosn’t take much space and with the 6” wide bla...

Working as intended framing nailer

Working as intended framing nailer

10-07-2018 07:24 PM by Holbs | 5 comments »

With my shed project, I knew a nailer was going to be needed for framing. Not wanting to chuck out $200 or $300 for a rarely used nailer, I opted for the NuMax 21 degree framing nailer hooked up to my 3HP/12 gallon air compressor.I’m thankful I did, after nearly 1,000 framing nails into 2×4’s and paneling.Works as advertised.

A well done dedicated HVLP paint sprayer

A well done dedicated HVLP paint sprayer

10-07-2018 07:15 PM by Holbs | 2 comments »

There are many hand held HVLP sprayers out there to choose from. I keep an eye on auctions and I see way too many returns of the Wagner Flexio sprayers. Granted, for every 200 Flexio’s, surely 1 has a fault. All these hand held sprayers are plastic, after all. To change it up, I went with the Homeright Finish Max since I own the small/large Homeright spray shelters. Great shelters so wanted to give the sprayer a shot. At a respectful price tag, as well via Amazon.Right out of the ...

Awesome accuracy

Awesome accuracy

10-02-2018 02:33 AM by steffen707 | 6 comments »

I recently bought a dewalt planer and amazon suggested i buy a wr510 with it. It was only $47, so I did. 2 weeks later its now $63 on amazon…. Installation was kinda hard at the begining. I would have paid $10-15 more if it came with a replacement bracket that you can take off the dewalt (see black bracket in 2nd picture). The double sided tape makes it difficult to get it lined up exactly so the bottom of it is flush with the bottom of the planer surface. They suggest it be lev...

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

10-02-2018 02:09 AM by steffen707 | 9 comments »

I read the dewalt planer would overpower normal shop vacs and had enough power to blow the chips into the cyclone. While this was kinda true, it struggled with the shopvac hooked up to the top port of the cyclone and not turned on. So i just hooked a hose up to the top port, it worked a lot better, but when the 30 gallon can I had fills up, it of course happens in the middle of a pass. So half a pass worth of fluff gets blown all over the shop or driveway….... SOLUTION? I dai...

took lots of abuse, then died, amazon replaced

10-02-2018 01:45 AM by steffen707 | 41 comments »

I wish i could review multiple products in one review, but i’ll post several. I bought a dewalt dw735x off Amazon for $499, plus the stand for $141 more, both shipped with prime. I’ve never used a planer before and had a huge pile of old rough sawn pine and oak. I don’t have a jointer, so i was feeding the boards in and might have been cuped, warped, twisted, ect. I would plane one side, then the other and alternate back and forth. I installed a Wixey WR510 off am...
