 My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

11-18-2017 06:21 PM by richardchaos | 0 comments »

last week I got my DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud I ordered via Amazon as it was $25 cheaper that Lowes. It came as you see even with a wrench (Not pictured) to change out padded head. Keep in mind I have been using an very old DeWalt drill with a Plastic Sanding disk attachment for the last few years. I would regularly set up my desalt drill with sanding disc crush it in my vise and use it as a poor mans Stationary Disk Sander… If any of you have se...

Unable to fill promised order

Unable to fill promised order

11-17-2017 03:07 PM by boberko | 9 comments »

Totally frustrating experience. Ordered 8/4 Zebra wood. Got the lengths wrong I can live with it. Got the thickness wrong, I can’t use the material. Called and sent a pic of the error. They promised to get the correct order out that day. Waited a week – heard nothing. Checked on my ticket and it was marked completed. Called again and they said they had forgot – would get it out that day. Waited, all they have done is sent a return label for the incorrect order. They&...

Ridge Carbide Tool TS2000 24T 10" Rip "Super Blade" Full Kerf

Ridge Carbide Tool TS2000 24T 10" Rip "Super Blade" Full Kerf

11-17-2017 12:48 AM by crb | 3 comments »

Purchased this blade from Holbren a few weeks ago to use during workbench top construction, but found few reviews that didn’t sound like shills so I thought I’d post this. This works like I would expect a $90 rip blade to work. I ripped a a few hundred feet of SYP 2×4 with this blade, jointing 2 sides, squaring up the third with this blade down to 3” width, and then doing a 3” tall rip down the lumber. I did this so I could get the same thickness out of all t...

Many disappointments with this router

Many disappointments with this router

11-15-2017 01:00 AM by MagicalMichael | 21 comments »

I already owned a Festool drill, joiner, sander and dust collector before I bought the router, so I was certainly prepared to really like it. So far it has been a series of disappointments. First, when I opened the box many parts had popped loose and were scattered about. I saw a picture of the edge guide but no edge guide in the box. The last two routers I have purchased – Ryobi & Triton- both came with edge and circle guides so I was surprised and dismayed to see that a $570 r...

Lee Valley is an interesting company. They have some of the most useful, well made tools of any company I’ve ever dealt with. They also have a significant collection of well made gimmicky crap, which I think are products that are solutions looking for a problem, pre-destined to be thrown into a kitchen or shop junk drawer and forgotten (eg. http://www.leevalley.com/en/garden/page.aspx?p=76247&cat=52&ap=1 or http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=75862&cat=51&ap=1) ...

Fine finish Rasp alternative

Fine finish Rasp alternative

11-10-2017 02:04 AM by TheTurtleCarpenter | 9 comments »

I bought these files after a little searching for more shapes and sizes of the Nicholson Plasti-Cut file that I had come across (top right file w/red handle). The Nicholson has been a go to for awhile in the shop and I found these Japanese files @Lee Valley so I thought I would order 1 of each cut grade and order more as I needed. The files all work great and are worth the price especially compared to hand cut modeler rasp. They all leave a glass finish but can be aggressive also. ...

"Best" Block plane

"Best" Block plane

11-06-2017 03:34 PM by PPK | 14 comments »

Ok, I know that writing the “Best” is a charged statement, and not everyone agrees, of course. But my opinion is that the Lee Valley Veritas Low Angle Block plane is the best buy among the other choice of block planes. My reasons for such a statement are below. Pros:-Fits the hand REALLY well. The little concavities for the fingers are perfect, and you don’t even have to think about it. Just pick it up and start planing. Lie Nielsen and the Stanley Sweetheart have a litt...

Bosch Miter Saw Crown Molding Stops

Bosch Miter Saw Crown Molding Stops

11-05-2017 09:02 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 6 comments »

What is there to say but these are a must have. installation is not to too bad depending on the miter saw you have. And you may have to modify/shorten the tightening knobs. in my case things would have gone much smoother if I had removed the saw from my flip stand. I didn’t use the 4 short screws that come with the set since I was also in no mood to tap the holes and besides on most miter saws the metal is too thin and soft so I got few 8-32 screws and nuts and shortened them. the set ...

 DELTA 31-484 OSCILLATING - TILTING SPINDLE SANDER -UNBOXING AND REVIEW

DELTA 31-484 OSCILLATING - TILTING SPINDLE SANDER -UNBOXING AND REVIEW

11-05-2017 06:38 PM by Ryan Nicholson | 11 comments »

I purchased a Delta 31-484 1HP Oscillating -Tilting Spindle Sander from a Delta dealer on EBay. I chose this model because the spindle tilts on a trunion instead of the table having to tilt. Also the gear box runs in an oil bath which is super quiet and should last many years. Delivery went smooth and the machine was undamaged so I signed for it and welcomed the 400 pound monster into my shop. Over all, the fit and finish of the machine is good. The cast iron table top was dead flat except ...
