I love this drum sander. I use it every time I dimension pieces for a project. I used to go to my ridgid 12 inch planer every time, and I still do if more needs to be taken off. But I prefer the finish the drum sander puts on my pieces before I start cutting them up for whatever I’m making. If you do a lot of inlay this is a must have machine. You can sand a piece down to 1/32 inch with this one. I usually only go to 1/16 or just past that for my inlay. Then I cut the strips to w...

JET JWBS-14DX

JET JWBS-14DX

So I picked this saw up from Overland Tool in Lenexa, Ks today. They let it go for $495.00. Amazon lists this saw for $969.00, so I feel like a found a pretty good deal. Anyway, got it home in 2 boxes, and upon opening, I saw that everything was in perfect condition. I have read reviews on other saws stating a 2-3 hour assembly time, so I figured this would be the same…..WRONG!!!!! Major props to JET here. I opened the box holding the base, and the motor was already mounted. I op...

My new favorite toy.

My new favorite toy.

Hey Everyone, Just got My Jet 1642 EVS pro 1 1/2 hp. Awesome. I will tell you the set up was easy, 1/2 hour at most, needed an extra set of hands to balance the legs while attatching the Way to them. Thank You Dann. It was my own fault, if I had read the directions I would have noticed that they will balace on their own if you do not attatch the feet first. In otherwords, Put it together first then lift the whole thing up and install the feet. Everything goes together very nicely. Fit ...

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...

Jet / Powermatic X-Y Mortiser

Jet / Powermatic X-Y Mortiser

01-14-2015 08:29 PM by pintodeluxe | 12 comments »

I started with a Delta benchtop mortiser, and found the need to upgrade to a bigger machine. The Jet JFM-5 is basically the same as the Powermatic 719-A. The longer handle and the 1 hp motor make this machine easier to use than benchtop mortisers. I realized that most benchtop units don’t hold the workpiece very well, and require you to use your hand like a clamp to hold the workpiece in place. The Jet solves that problem with a sturdy face clamp. CLAMPThe clamp keeps the workpiece...

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

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 mini lathe

jet mini lathe

This was my first lathe since middle school shop class. Back then I made a lamp for my mother that made it all the way to state finals. I was excited to get this in my shop and start turning on it and after several months it has performed flawlessly!! I have added the bed extension but not used the tool since adding it. The bed is very solid and the extension was easy to install and level. This model has the spindle lock and indexing head and operates at 500 – 3900 rpm. I think it is...

For the money... not bad... but not great, either

For the money... not bad... but not great, either

08-14-2008 06:51 PM by ryno101 | 9 comments »

So let me start by saying that this is the first major tool purchase (in excess of $150) that I have made, and while overall I’m satisfied, there are enough problems to warrant a second thought for a first table saw. If I could have given 3 1/2 stars, I would have… but I’ll settle for 4, since it’s not quite a 3 star tool. I ended up getting this on Amazon, free shipping, with a promo including an outfeed roller, and the whole package was $299. For the money, th...

Final Bandsaw

Final Bandsaw

I’m retiring in 3 months, so I decided to upgrade to this saw from a Delta 10” I bought 10 years ago. I originally wanted the 17” Grizzly, but decided to buy from a local brick & mortar store (Sacrramento Machinery)for political reasons. This saw has pretty much all the features I wanted: 12” resaw capacity, roller guides, quick-disconnect detensioning, and, most importantly, local support in case of a problem. Like everyone else, I replaced the blade with a...
