Great Drill Press at a Great Price

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

12-12-2014 12:33 PM by NickyP | 2 comments »

I saved my pennies waiting for the annual 15% off Black Friday sale and bought this JET drill press from CPO Outlets through Amazon for $518.49. It was delivered to my house 10 days later: After opening the box I quickly discovered there were not allot of parts that needed to be assembled: I bought a mobile base about 2 months ago from Rockler on sale for $34.99 free shipping: As I went through the assembly process I would degrease and wax were needed: ...

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

I may be the only person nutty enough to think this might be of interest to anyone, but if you are contemplating purchase of one of these units, this may be of interest to you. I purchased this unit from Global Industrial on Nov. 6, 2014. The price was $699.99 to which was added $35.00 for residential delivery, totaling $734.99. Unless you have a loading dock, I recommend the residential delivery service because everything is shipped shrink-wrapped on a palette. My delivery was made by Estes....

Worth every dollar I paid for them

Worth every dollar I paid for them

OK, so my title might be a bit misleading. As a hobbyist, I don’t think I would be able to justify spending that healthy chunk of change on clamps if I paid the full retail price. Like many others, when the JET parallel clamps went on sale for 50% off during Black Friday 2013, I pulled the trigger to buy some, and I picked up the framing set (2×24” and 2×40” with the clamp blocks and bench-dog pins). Since I started using the JET parallel clamps, I’ve defi...

A Love/Hate Relationship

A Love/Hate Relationship

Ahh spring! That time of year when a young man’s thoughts turn to one thing…and since this is not the forum for that topic…let’s talk tools. Officially, I think this silly little woodworking hobby of mine has morphed into a full blown obsession. In fact, if I ever sell my home, the listing will probably read “Beautiful, three bedroom, two bath home with a Five-tool garage”. While I haven’t reached the absolute low of selling myself for money to feed my tool addiction, I have taken the ...

New verses old

New verses old

Having the Jet 1014 mini lathe and really loving it, and having no problems with it what so ever. I decided on the 1221VS model. Unboxing it was fun, my past lathes have been hand me downs and/or very used and in need of rebuilding. Upon opening I removed the lose goodies that came with it and lifted off the foam to reveal the site of a turners dream…mine anyway.After getting it unboxed I noticed NO live center….bummer! Just a call to get that taken care of easily. Noticing a...

All together a press solid table saw. I have been looking for a while and come across this one. He added a 30” fence rail ,had it dialed in extremely tight. feather boards galore ,push sticks, home aid router attachment ,and Two cross cut sleds..i still have my eye open for another one just because the 2HP is lacking power..or maybe I just need to break down and but a high dollar blade? Any thoughts or recommendations? All together I give it s B+ (image off google)

Great OSS, competes favorably with much costlier floor standing models.

I picked up my Jet JBOS-5 Oscillating spindle Sander used for a good price in very good condition. Other than some signs of use, it works likes new, so I believe I have a good example. Acoustics: The first thing I noticed was how quiet this machine is. OSS (good ones anyway) are some of the quietest sanding machines you can use already. (think about it, most sanders are very noisy!) This tool surprised me as it is even quieter than a very large floor standing unit I have. Power: The nex...

Jet model CTAS 10-1 right tilt, 3 HP 220V

I bought this saw 25 years ago. I thought a review of this saw would be useful to people looking for good used machines on E-Bay and CL. It has been across the country in my many moves. I believe the price at the time was around $1100. I added a Biesemeyer 54” fence to it as soon as I got it. It has seen much use over it’s 25+ years. It still runs perfectly; bearings are tight; top is flat; everything remains aligned. I couldn’t ask any more from a saw. It would compare favo...

As the price falls, the rating rises

I found this Jet JWL 1236 lathe on Craigslist and just got it home and set up today. I’ve gone over many reviews of this lathe on the web, and the couple hours use I’ve had today have proven some of the gripes right. I put a 4×4 on it and rounded it, and I found it has a rattle coming from somewhere but the lathe doesn’t shake like some have said. It seems to have enough weight to keep from dancing around. The rattle I think is made worse by the dull tools I was using, ...

Jet Jointer early christmas gift

Jet Jointer early christmas gift

11-19-2012 12:51 AM by Woodmaster1 | 9 comments »

My wife got me the jointer for christmas and ask is this the last machine I need for my shop. I said yes. (LOL) We all know that we never have enough. The jointer was package well and it took less than an hour to assemble, clean and set the outfeed and infeed tables. The jointer ran smooth with no excessive vibration. The motor needed no adjustment for the belt. The fence was easy to set square and has a stop to set it at 90 and keep it there. My trial cuts came out as smooth as glass. I ran ...
