I’ve never written a review before. But, there’s been many conflicting reviews on the internet such as Amazon and a few others about the difficulty of assembling the base. I’ve had no problems putting this together. However, the box did say “Improved Design”. Maybe that had something to do with it. It was quite simple, and the instructions were clear. The only reason I looked at the instructions was because some people were having such problems, that I was try...

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

07-20-2009 10:20 PM by TheDane | 14 comments »

Review: Shop Fox Classic Fence Bottom line: The “Shop Fox Classic Fence” has proven to be an excellent addition to my workshop. My table saw is a Jet JWTS-10 (708100). I have always liked this saw (see review at http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/333), but was never completely satisfied with the fence. After a good deal of online research, I settled on the “Shop Fox Classic Fence”, and found a very good deal on it from Warren Cutlery, a Shop Fox dealer in Rhinebec...

Shop Fox W1671 3/4 HP Heavy-duty Mortising Machine

Ok, I admit it, I am a tool junkie. What I lack in skill I make up in tool savvy. That said I have never owned a mortise machine so take that into consideration when putting any value to this review. I did do some serious research before buying as this will be my last tool for a while as my wife has threaten to cave my skull in with a cast iron frying pan while I sleep if I buy any more. Let’s get to the heart of the matter; The Shop Fox is inexpensive. I paid $245 + $44 shipping at Grizzly t...

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

12-10-2016 03:15 PM by becikeja | 14 comments »

I have a small hobby shop and like to have my tools on mobile bases. The Shop Fox Mobile base seemed well made and strong. Assembly was simple enough, and it was easy to move into place and with a simple turn of the stabilizing screws quickly became immobilized when the bandsaw was in use. I was very happy with the product. A couple of weeks ago I took on the task of cleaning the shop. Behind the Bandsaw I found a chunk of rubber. I could not figure out where it came from. Then I be...

26" Of Awesome

26" Of Awesome

It’s big, it’s heavy, but it is possible to move it. Just don’t try taking it out of your truck and pulling it into your shop like I did. It’s very dangerous!I had to take off my door to fit into my shop lol. Good times!Anyway, so it weighs a lot and it’s big so your going to need casters to put it on if you want to move it at all. This sander is very powerful with it’s 5hp motor. I can take off quite a bit of material in one pass using 80 and 120 grit...

Grizzly 6" low-speed grinder (Shop Fox)

Grizzly 6" low-speed grinder (Shop Fox)

06-25-2010 01:29 AM by glassyeyes | 10 comments »

This item is currently on sale at Grizzly for $49.99 plus shipping, listed at about $110. It runs at 1725 rpm, and the motor is rated as 1/4 hp, totally enclosed and fan-cooled. It ran quite smoothly right out of the box. The left wheel is 3/4” wide, and coarse grit. The right wheel is 1 1/2” wide, and is white aluminum oxide medium grit. I did the rough grinding on several chisels with the wider wheel, and was very pleased. A number of my chisels and plane irons are in need ...

Shop Fox W1410 - get one while they last

Shop Fox W1410 - get one while they last

11-09-2013 06:05 PM by Garry | 10 comments »

I just (Nov. 9, 2013) got a Shop Fox W1410 fence for my Craftsman tablesaw at a great price. I took a chance even though it has been discontinued because it has great reviews from those who have one. ToolsandMore.us in Florida still has some (I don’t know how many). Call them to confirm. Previously priced at $250 plus, they are selling them now around $145 plus shipping. [Note – This is not the same company as toolsandmore.com.] I mounted it yesterday and used it for several cu...

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

06-05-2017 11:11 PM by jonah | 10 comments »

I love just about everything about this multi pack of clamp racks… except the pipe clamp rack. I don’t have any pipe clamps. Honestly, I wish I could have gotten a decent deal on a 2-pack, rather than the 3-pack. I wanted a parallel clamp rack and an f-style clamp rack, and this pack was the lowest cost option to get those two. The alternative was to get a 3-pack of either the f-style or the parallel rack and a single of the other one, or to get two singles. Amazon didn’t ha...

”Cut perfect inlays with this Inlay Kit and your shop-made template. Simply slide on the bushing to rout the cutout and then remove the bushing to cut the perfectly matched inlay. Includes a 1/8” solid carbide spiral cutter and alignment pin. Fits Porter Cable® routers and other routers with template guide adapters.”Everything was there and fit my new Trend T4 just fine although there were two things that bothered me. #1 – the alignment pin is 8mm! (not 1/4”),...

Shop Fox W1677 3HP Cabinet Saw

03-12-2009 12:42 AM by knotscott | 8 comments »

The W1677 is a 3hp, 10”, left tilt, triple belt drive industrial cabinet saw with a Shop Fox Classic t-square style fence that offers 26” rip capacity. Shop Fox is part of the Woodstock International group, which is also associated with Grizzly. Both companies are owned by businessman, luthier, and woodworker, Shiraz Balolia. For all intents and purposes, the Shop Fox W1677 and Grizzly G1023SL are identical except for color, retail circumstances, and warranty. The 1677 has two 10...
