Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

08-22-2017 08:59 PM by Zoomie | 1 comment »

Turning 60 this year and the little lady read my wish list and I got the cabinet saw I’ve wanted for the past 30 years. Truly a compromise on some level but for me the value is extraordinary given the Grizzly price and the small differences that I as a hobby woodworker will never miss. I actually went to Springfield MO to see it in person and am glad I did. The saw was outstanding but the mobile base was awkward and not very mobile . . . but I needed it to be. Grizzly shipping and U...

HOMERIGHT Spray Shelter

HOMERIGHT Spray Shelter

08-20-2017 09:53 PM by RichTaylor | 7 comments »

If you’re like me, spraying finishes frequently and don’t have a dedicated spray booth, you know how it gets all over things. Even with the two-car garage door open, and side door open for cross ventilation, topcoats like lacquer get in the air and settle on everything. I happened on the HOMERIGHT Spray Shelters on Amazon, and decided to give the smaller tabletop model a try. At just over $30, it seemed like I didn’t have much to lose. As it turned out, it’s a ni...

Time Tested Tools-I'm gonna go broke!

Time Tested Tools-I'm gonna go broke!

08-16-2017 08:09 PM by Dustin | 6 comments »

Hey, for all you LJ’s who have yet to delve into the world of hand tools, or just need a good place to get them, user Don W recently referred me to his site timetestedtools.net. Having no hand tools (except for the number 80 scraper I’m borrowing from CharlesA), I needed a block plane for a project I’m working on. I had seen Don’s posts before, so I went over to his site after a few failed attempts to buy things on E-bay. If you’re like me, and have neither ...

Hey everyone. I just received my Grizzly G0771Z yesterday and I felt that I should add my experience to the forum. First of all, delivery went just fine (ordered Monday, received next Monday). The driver was willing to pull it into my garage for me. (not a long driveway though) There were a number of cuts and punctures in the cardboard on both the main saw and the fence packages. I noted them on the receipt and took pictures. I went ahead and opened up the packages and everything looked...

Grizzly Adjustable Mobile Base

Grizzly Adjustable Mobile Base

08-13-2017 06:11 PM by Kelly | 1 comment »

I bought this to put under my Powermatic edge sander. Here are my observations regarding its assembly and use: PRO’s: 1) The edge sander I used this under is now VERY easy to move. Much more so than when I had a home made, wood base (with good casters), which raised the unit up several inches. 2) The base design raises the tool only enough to allow the wheels to roll freely, so it doesn’t raise the center of gravity a great deal. 3) The locking mechanism i...

Top snapped apart on one bag

Top snapped apart on one bag

08-11-2017 07:33 PM by ColonelTravis | 4 comments »

Bought a pack of 4 last spring, they were doing great until the top of the screw cap on one broke after almost a year. Really ticked about that because I had plenty of finish left in the bag. The other three bags are fine, and I’d like to buy more when I’m done with them because the concept is great. But if another top breaks I will not. Don’t know how the top of the cap came off. Went to open it a week ago and saw that the top was broken and the finish was ruined. In the...

EC 125/3 EQ

There was a point in time when I thought Festool was the most ridiculous thing out there. I mean who can justify a $385 sander that requires its own special sandpaper which also has a premium price. I loathed Festool and thought anyone who bought them were either Tom Silva or a Rhinestone Wood Worker. Then I needed a track saw. Looking at the three options in the US I eliminated the Dewault due to design and was going to go with the Makita until I read about all of the people who said they...

PEC 90 Degree 12" Combination Square

PEC 90 Degree 12" Combination Square

08-07-2017 08:36 PM by PPK | 8 comments »

This is a review for a combination square that is priced a lot lower than a Starret square, is actually square, and is made in the USA. All good things, right? -It is square. Really square. All the way along the length of the ruler.-It slides well. Not AMAZING, but well.-Fit and finish are pretty decent, but not amazing. There are some sharp corners. -The graduations are well marked, and very easy to read. (Etched in, I think)-It came with some anti-corrosion coating on it and had no rust...

Best Miter Saw Blade?

Best Miter Saw Blade?

08-07-2017 07:15 PM by HassanMirza | 3 comments »

Hello Everyone, Couple of Months ago I had a chance to get to visit the W.D Quinn Blade Saw Co, Which I wrote a review about. Where I picked up two blades one for the table saw (10 inch) and one for the Miter saw (12 inch). This review is about the Miter saw Blade since I have been using this blade for a couple of months now I feel I can write and honest and proper review. First off the bat the blade has huge carbide teeth so that means it can be resharpened many times. But its not abo...
