Grizzly H7583 Tenoning Jig

Grizzly H7583 Tenoning Jig

04-29-2015 05:24 PM by Jagerheister | 21 comments »

A few day ago I purchased a Grizzly tenoning jig for an upcoming project on Amazon for $78.00 USD. I did quite a bit of research prior to pulling the trigger on the purchase, and I didn’t find many sources of video demonstrations or specific product info other than specifications and written instructions. I decided to do a video just to propagate and proliferate information on this product. I’ve provided a link below to a video review that I did of the unboxing, and assembly....

Fantastic quality, and great looks- but a big investment.

Fantastic quality, and great looks- but a big investment.

I recently got my hands on a pair of high end headphones. Since I listen to music and audiobooks in the workshop, and I know a lot of others here do too, I thought I’d give them a quick review… First off, they’re stunning. I mean, look at these suckers! That’s hand carved ebony, which immediately appeals to me as a woodworker. Wearing these around the shop just makes me look good! Each set has a different look, with its own unique grain pattern. They come in a high ...

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

04-29-2015 07:43 AM by DW833 | 7 comments »

I purchased this product at the Tampa woodworking show. The inventor was at the show and demoed the dust collection. I thought that the dust collection setup had a small footprint. I’ve tried other methods that just got in the way at the DP. The cost was $39. Included the quill for attaching to the DP, two housings and additional fittings to secure the quill. At the show, a second housing was provided with the purchase. I’m not sure if that is the case with every purchase...

Gramercy Holdfast works well after tuning

Gramercy Holdfast works well after tuning

04-26-2015 04:42 PM by ic3ss | 9 comments »

I recently completed my Roubo bench and a set of holdfasts were the last item. Between the hand forged really nice and expensive ones and the cast iron made in china break on the first use cheap ones, there were these. They are not cast, so they have flexibility to not break under normal use. The cheap ones at woodcraft and rocker are cast, and they will break because they are cast. Nor are they hand wrought by a blacksmith. These are the best ones because they have the texture on the shan...

Duplicator & Spindle Steady

Duplicator & Spindle Steady

04-25-2015 11:13 PM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

I finally pulled the trigger on the purchase of a USA made Vega D36 Pro Lathe Duplicator along with a Canadian made Oneway Spindle Steady. The Vega D36 allows you to use either a template which you make (which has the profile of the turning cut into it) or you can mount an original turning up to 4? diameter which you wish to copy. Material is quickly removed by locking cutters in-out motion and turning the handwheel of the duplicator to move the cutter along the axis of the lathe bed. The...

The Marquetry Manual

The Marquetry Manual

04-24-2015 02:55 PM by Dennis Zongker | 10 comments »

This book was written by William A. Lincoln in 1989, which was 18 years after he wrote, “The Art and Practice of Marquetry.” This is also a very good book. I would like to say “WOW!” I wish I would have purchase this book when I very first started learning Marquetry. Instead of reading the book, “Marquetry” by Pierre Raymond which is also a great book but let’s face it, it’s not very easy to understand especially for a beginner. The Marquetry Manual has 272 pages that explain techniques...

Great Saw!

Great Saw!

04-24-2015 06:11 AM by hybridn00b | 6 comments »

This is only my second saw, so that may limit the impact of my review, but it just might be my last! This beauty is built to last! I upgraded from a craftsman contractor saw, which was wildly inaccurate, but allowed me to realize that woodworking is going to be a lifetime passion of mine. A big factor in choosing this saw for me was the 115V option. Plus, the Powermatic logo screams quality to me. Obviously the saw is amazing, especially compared to the contractor saw i had previously. ...

Incra Cleansweep Magnalock rings for Incra/JessEm Mast-R-Lift II

Incra Cleansweep Magnalock rings for Incra/JessEm Mast-R-Lift II

04-23-2015 05:51 PM by philba | 2 comments »

I’ve had my Mast-T-Lift II for a while now in a shop built router table. It’s set up for under table dust collection and does pretty well but I am always looking for was to improve dust collection, especially for routing. Recently, I purchased the Cleansweep magnalock rings in the hope they would help. Well, they do. I did some simple tests with the stock magna lock rings and then with the clean sweep ones. I routed a 3/8” x 1/2” rabbet in several pieces of pine....

Major Issues with Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Sander

Major Issues with Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Sander

04-20-2015 09:05 AM by nashley | 22 comments »

I purchased this ridgid sander 2 days ago after reading a lot of great reviews. The assembly went together very quickly and easily and the fit and finish of the sander appeared to be on par with the price. It wasn’t until I installed the belt assembly onto the spindle that I first noticed something wasn’t right. When installing the “spindle knob” (item 1 in the attached parts list diagram), I noticed that the threads were not even close to concentric to the shank of th...
