Just got my G0715P delivered

I just got my Grizzly G0715P delivered on Friday. 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 11:41 AM by Manitario | 3 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...

I have been replacing my 4 foot shop lights with LED lights.

It came with chains to hang it, on/off switch and a cord. Overall, this is a nice shop light at a good price.

JessEm Wood Sabre Marking Gauge Makes the Cut

JessEm Wood Sabre Marking Gauge Makes the Cut

12-02-2016 04:15 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

11-30-2016 08:40 PM 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...

Way better than my Dewalt!

Way better than my Dewalt!

11-29-2016 02:03 PM by stevet47 | 4 comments »

I picked this up online re-manufactured. They were having a sale and I had a discount code, so I managed to get it for $235 shipped. I figured at that price, it was worth the risk. I sold my Dewalt 12” non-slider on craigslist for $200, so I am all-in to this saw for $35. And that is actually true, since the Dewalt was a gift! Using this thing sure is a treat. I had been using my 12” Dewalt non-slider for several years, and we have a 12” Dewalt slider at work. The Dewalts...

Decisions, decisions...

11-29-2016 08:17 AM by Jarrhead | 4 comments »

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. The JET 10” hybrid saw I bought new about 17 years ago has served me well, but I wanted to take advantage of some of the advancements in table saw design that have occurred since then. There were two major developments in table saws that I was adamant about having on my new saw. The first was a riving knife. Not merely a splitter, but a true riving knife that raises, lowers, and tilts with the blade. Back when I bought my JET, riving knives wer...

Jointer	Grizzly G0490XW

Jointer Grizzly G0490XW

11-27-2016 09:06 AM by dannmarks | 6 comments »

I purchased the G0490XW. I ordered the one that I wanted and waited for to come in: it was on back order. Came in about mid November 2016. Yes it has the spiral head and mine worked first time just fine. Still tuning in some stuff. I probably still have a little to learn about it yet. However, my boards come out very flat and the edges are very square. Took a while to get it square. I mean really square. So gluing up produces nice flat work. It does exactly what a jointer is suppose...
