Nice router table

Nice router table

1563 days ago by Dustin | 1 comment »

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&#...

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...

Great Intro Shaper

Great Intro Shaper

1639 days ago by Dustin | 16 comments »

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...

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

1831 days ago 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 Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

A friend flew down to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he bought and was going to be going through Washington on the way back to Alaska. I took advantage of the opportunity to have him swing by the Grizzly warehouse to pick up some equipment for me. In addition to an eight inch jointer which I will preview later, I had him pickup the Shop Fox Classic Fence System with Standard Rails. I finally got around to installing it yesterday and it couldn’t have been easier. It went on my old Grizz...

1962 days ago 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...

It's a Drill Press

It's a Drill Press

2338 days ago 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...
