Deciding on the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 with T75G gun

Deciding on the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 with T75G gun

12-15-2017 03:54 PM by toneinvic | 3 comments »

I’d like to give a quick review on my hunt for an HVLP system and my Fuji Spray Mini-Mite 4 experience.First off I just want to say that I had no previous experience what so ever spraying post-catalyzed lacquer (or much of anything for that matter). I read every HVLP review I could find and watched every video on Youtube before I decided on the Mini-Mite 4. I don’t remember what review I read (or watched) but I remember the comment that the more powerful turbines are more forgivi...

Not at all what I was expecting for the money

Not at all what I was expecting for the money

Hey guys, this is not the review I wanted write over a year ago when purchased this machine. I had high hopes that it would be as good as advertised. I was wrong. Ive been working as a cabinet maker full time for 8 years now and wanted a machine to help with all the sanding. I saw this video https://youtu.be/vG_8ASCUWnQAfter watching that and and hearing of Supermax Tools as a company thats been around a while I took the leap and spent $2,400 or so on it and some paper. It was pretty easy ...

BLACK+DECKER BDH2010LP Platinum 20-Volt Max Lithium Ion Battery Cordless Hand Vacuum

BLACK+DECKER BDH2010LP Platinum 20-Volt Max Lithium Ion Battery Cordless Hand Vacuum

12-09-2017 05:23 AM by DeLayne Peck | 0 comments »

Small annoying messes, they accumulate around the drill press, on workbenches, and in inaccessible nooks and crannies. Until I pirated this cordless vac from the house, small piles were spread everywhere in my shop. The choice is: Leave a mess or haul a shop vac over. The 20v Max brings powerful suction to small jobs. Much more than the dustbusters of yore. Small chips, sawdust, debris, cookie crumbs and dirt quickly vanish. Obviously, there are limits to what can be picked up. Spi...

Jess Em Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides Do What They're supposed to

Jess Em Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides Do What They're supposed to

12-08-2017 02:33 AM by NeophyteGrant | 16 comments »

As a relatively new woodworker who has spent some time investing in new equipment the past couple months, I have a bit of a backlog of items I’d like to share impressions of. There are a couple of Jess ‘Em products at the top, particularly these TS rip guides, which were my first Jess ‘Em purchase. Fit and Finish: the finish of the aluminum pieces is outstanding. I’ve had them up in action on my SuperCoolTools Fence (these were a custom fit model with according t...

Space Age Ceramics bandsaw guides

Space Age Ceramics bandsaw guides

12-07-2017 07:09 AM by newwoodbutcher | 5 comments »

I have two bandsaws, a newer 18” Rikon and an old Cast Iron 16” Grizzly. The Rikon is permanently set up to resew and the Grizzly is set up with a 1/4” blade for curved work. I installed Space Age Ceramics Guides on the Ricon over a year ago and have had Carter Guides on the Grizzly for about two years. Both saws get a lot of use in my shop. After resewing a lot of Hardwood making veneers for over a year now on the Rikon, I am very happy with the Ceramic guides. They ar...

Makita Cordless Track Saw

Makita Cordless Track Saw

I recently bought this saw during a promotion. Kit comes with saw, 4-5ah batteries, dual port charger, 55” guide rail, 2 sustainer cases. First cut with this saw was a straight line rip in 8/4 hard maple. The saw made the cut with zero difficulty and left an edge that looked like it had been hand planed. It was a perfect glue line rip. The next cut was a crosscut in the same material. It left the end grain so smooth that it didn’t require any sanding. I put the saw to further tests in 1/4” ch...

Amazingly useful tape measure that won't fall over

Amazingly useful tape measure that won't fall over

Hey LJ’s. I came across this piece of magic a while ago thinking it might be a gimmick, but this has been my goto tape measure for the past 3 months. I don’t how exactly how it works but this little guy lays flat on any surface with the tape pulled out. No more falling over while measuring or tape going out of shape cause the body won’t sit still. Easy to use and work with. 5 Stars all around. Craftsman Sidewinder 25' tape measure Pros-Lays Flat!-Auto lock when tape...

A lot of saw for the money

A lot of saw for the money

11-27-2017 05:42 PM by Lunchmeat79 | 18 comments »

Hey everybody, I’ve been lurking on here for quite a while and decided I might as well make my first post. I’ve been making a bunch of small boxes the last year or so and have been using 1/4” ply for the bottoms. I’ve been wanting to start using solid wood but 3/4” is way too bulky for that in my opinion. Also I don’t want to plane away 2/3 of a plank into chips to get to 1/4”. My conclusion to this is the get a small band saw and a planer so I ca...

Supermax new 16-32 sander

Supermax new 16-32 sander

11-25-2017 06:34 AM by Woodmaster1 | 9 comments »

This is an awesome drum sander. The only assembly required was to assemble the stand to put it on. The extension tables are an extra but fold down when not in use. The extensions were easy to attach an adjust to level. I have used it for about three weeks and put it through sanding end grain cutting boards to making .054 bands for boxes. The innovation of adjusting the drum quickly up and down with a lever is fantastic. No more cranking the handle a turn at a time to adjust the height.

New Stanley Planes Hold Their Own

New Stanley Planes Hold Their Own

11-25-2017 06:01 AM by Redbeardedwoodworker | 10 comments »

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. 3 years ago I decided to try a new Stanley Bevel Up Jack plane and it blew me away. Out of the box it was flat in all the right places, botom was square to the sides and it makes a surface to rival my Lie Nielsen smoother. I then bought a new Stanley block plane and had the same experience. It’s a great plane that is flat and true and as much as I hate to say it, since I spent about $150 more on it, it is more comfortable in my ha...
