Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

11-09-2010 05:06 PM by jred | 5 comments »

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...

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...

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

Shop Fox W1410 Table saw Fence w/standard rails

10-26-2012 12:12 AM by Jim55 | 4 comments »

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...

Nice router table

Nice router table

This review is from: SHOP FOX W1701 1-Horsepower Shaper (Tools & Hardware)First off, I have three shapers now. Two 2hp Shop Fox shapers and this little 1hp Shop Fox shaper. I use it primarily for profiling door lips and it does an excellent job. I know there are a lot of shapers quite a bit like this one but I got the shop fox because it had a high enough rpm to handle my router bits necessary for the job. Setting it up you’ll have to space the table away from the frame or you won&#...

It's a Drill Press

It's a Drill Press

02-29-2008 07:44 PM by Chris | 0 comments »

I was in need of a drill press and purchased this drill press on clearance. It performs as advertised; however there a couple of areas that are lacking. The Good:1) Spindle run out is almost non-existent2) The speeds are easy to change3) It seems to have plenty of torque for my needs The Bad:1) Even when “locked down” the table can wander laterally2) The table height adjustment has a lot bit of play3) Worst of all: The table deflects significantly even with moderate downward...

Shop Fox mobile base

Shop Fox mobile base

This a great feature to have moving a heavy piece of machinery like a table saw. Assembly was a piece of cake. There are a lot of nuts and bolts so it does take a bit of time. Rolls my new 340 lb plus G0661 table saw very easily. Can be adjusted from 20” x 20” to 29 1/2” x 29 1/2”. Can support 700 lbs. Heavy duty castors. Nice fit and finish.
