ok this is my 1st review so go easy on me..lolanyways “out of the box” this saw seems to work really well, the stock blade could maybe be a little better but i planned on a better blade anyways so no huge deal, i also bought the 6 inch extension for it but it was put on B.O. so i should get it this week so ill try and review on it with the extension at a later timeive had the saw for about 3 days so far and the 2nd pic was literally plugging it in and cutting, the fence probly was...

Great 14 inch Saw for the price

Great 14 inch Saw for the price

03-28-2013 03:15 PM by Joe Watson | 8 comments »

Ive only Had the saw since the end of February but what use I have gotten out of it was wonderful. This saw came with roller bearing guides and a 1hp motor both features I was looking at. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was I felt like some of the guards from the blade near where the lower guides are needs a redesign because they tend to bend and get in the way after I change the blade. Also not sure what the easiest way is to change the blade because the fence guides get in the wa...

After writing a review for my table saw I figured I’d write a review for it’s mobile base, a Shop Fox D2057A. Everything went together fairly easily. The tedious part was installing the hardware for the casters but even that wasn’t too difficult. After having it support my table saw for over a year now, it still works as advertised. BUT… the fit and finish wasn’t too pleasing. as you can see in the pictures the corner support that holds up the tool had a goo...

Base is sturdy, but assembly is a pain...

Base is sturdy, but assembly is a pain...

Background: I bought this mobile base for my new Grizzly 1023RLW Cabinet Table Saw, which has a 20.5”x20.5” base. I had to do some slight modifications to get it to fit perfectly, which now that the saw sits on the base, it does. Assembly: I put the base together before doing any mods because I wanted to see how many modifications I was going to have to do. I say that so the people reading this review don’t think the mods negatively affected the assembly of the base. ...

Shop Fox W1743 Mortiser & Grizzly Star-M Mortise Chisels

I finally got to use this new Shop Fox mortising machine cutting some slots into the wood fences for my radial arm saw. The good, the impressive, the FACE PALM here we go… The “finest” is that so, we’ll see. These ‘premium’ mortising chisels are not cheap, the 1/4” chisel pictured below is $33 and the price goes up from there. I shopped chisels all over the interweb so a word of advice, dig until you find the country of origin because the vast majo...

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

My wife spoke words to me recently that I thought I’d never hear (at least not on her own volition). She told me that I should get a lathe! What a woman! I have been looking at “midi” sized lathes for a long time and really like the jet 12×20 I used at a woodcraft class. Two problems: There has not been a reasonably priced used Jet lathe go up for sale in the entire state in over six months (I’ve checked Craigslist and Ebay regularly). Second problem: new lathe...

I have had my new Shop Fox for about 2 weeks now and I’d like to think that I have put it through the paces by now. The saw is 230v and 3hp, comes with dado insert, push stick, blade, wrenchs, etc. It took roughly 2 hours or so to get this thing put together and ready to go. I looked at the Grizzly g0691, but didn’t like that I could be denied the liftgate by the trucker, I live at the end of a cul-de-sac, so I went with the Shop Fox, there is a dealer 30 miles from me. Movi...

Packages have incorrect size info on them

Packages have incorrect size info on them

05-25-2012 08:29 PM by patcollins | 4 comments »

Well back in December when Peachtree woodworking had a sale I purchased four clamps that are under the Pocket Hole Accessories section. I received them and they appear to be made decently but nothing to write home about, they are cast aluminum and steel but probably good enough. Where the problem lies is the packages say they are useable for stock up to 7/8” thick. Today I went to use them on some 3/4” stock and they would not fit, upon further inspection I found there is no wa...

Shop Fox W1410 Table saw Fence w/standard rails

I have a Hitachi C10FL table saw. The Hitachi fence has been described in some reviews as “decent.” Not mine. I could never adjust it to anything remotely resembling consistency or holding square. It slewed terribly between front and back I always, always had to measure front and back to guarantee squareness. I got fed up. One of the new additions for my new shop project was a new fence! It took a lot of study. There are a lot of choices and a fairly wide spread of prices. I narrowed my choic...
