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...

Fellow lumberjocks I hate to post a bad review but this dovetail jig has taken the last of my Patience that I allocated for it :( I bought this last year after realizing I need a jig, well I am fed up with trying to fix an almost new jig after reading the instruction manual and setting it up accordingly I placed the wood in the holder and tightened the clamp and after 3 seconds SNAP!!!! the knobs and bushing holders were broke after calling grizzly and getting a new bag of knobs and nylon b...

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&#...

Great Intro Shaper

Great Intro Shaper

After owning these units for a few years now I think it might be a good idea to rewrite this review. Just starting into the cabinet business this machine will satisfy most of your needs. It is easily powerful enough to run shallow profiles, but when it comes to raised panel cuts you either have make sure your cutter is exceptionally sharp or you’ll have to run it through a few passes. The fence is superior to many shapers that I have used in the past, however, getting it parallel t...

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...

Shop Fox W1706 Review - Satisfied Customer

Shop Fox W1706 Review - Satisfied Customer

01-02-2013 08:36 PM 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...

”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 CableĀ® 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 W1743 Mortiser & Grizzly Star-M Mortise Chisels

Shop Fox W1743 Mortiser & Grizzly Star-M Mortise Chisels

02-08-2014 05:52 PM by darthford | 6 comments »

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

11-09-2013 06:05 PM by Garry | 8 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...
