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

72 days ago by MattyMattAg | 7 comments »

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

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 W1410 - get one while they last

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...

Great 14 inch Saw for the price

Great 14 inch Saw for the price

490 days ago 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...

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.

Shop Fox W1706 Review - Satisfied Customer

Shop Fox W1706 Review - Satisfied Customer

575 days ago by DamnYankee | 20 comments »

Recently purchased the Shop Fox W1706. I was driven to purchase this bandsaw for a combination of reasons – price ($580), reviews found on-line and by personal contacts (almost no negative ones found), features. The saw came with a quick tension release, fence and miter. I purchased the riser kit as well. As I just recently pruchased it and have not used it very much this review will focus on set up and initial impressions. The set up was EXTREMELY easy as it was nearly fully...

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...

Shop Fox W1410 Table saw Fence w/standard rails

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...

Packages have incorrect size info on them

Packages have incorrect size info on them

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...
