Comparing two Woodstock Paddle Switches

Comparing two Woodstock Paddle Switches

178 days ago by CharlesA | 23 comments »

I saw these two paddle switches on a LJ thread and decided to replace the original switch on my Craftsman 113 contractor table saw. I ended up with both of them, so I can review both a bit on features and installation. I can’t say too much yet about long-term performance. The Woodstock D4160 is the same as the Grizzly H8241 and is for 110v only up to 16 amps. The Woodstock D4151 is the same as the Grizzly H8243 and can be used with 110 and 220 and can be used up to 35 amps on 110,...

Shop Flash from Grizzly

Shop Flash from Grizzly

I suppose there are two types of people. Those who like to talk on the phone and those who don’t. I would be squarely in the second group. My wife would be in the first group as she likes to talk and talk. When the phone rings at my house, I look the other way. But there are times when I am waiting for that important return phone call and the wife is not home. My phone out in the shop works fine with just the stereo going but if I am using the dust collector and almost any ot...

Woodstock International D4241 12" Cyclone Separator

Woodstock International D4241 12" Cyclone Separator

689 days ago by SirFatty | 21 comments »

A couple weeks ago I purchased the Porter Cable table saw. One of the features is the dust port sized for a shop vac, and it works really well with my Ridged vacuum. Time for a cyclone separator, since all my sawdust will end up in the shop vac and replacing filters can be costly. There are a lot of separators available, and the price range is fairly wide. I’ve been looking a the offerings from Rockler” and ””Oneida name just a couple. There is a decent review o...

I had a serious problem a short while ago with a jointer I just bought, starting unexpectedly, creating serious damages but more importantly it could have cost me my life or at least some very serious injury.You can read the story here:http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40359#reply-477310 Until yesterday morning when helping some one else with this switch, I used only the paddle of the switch that I installed on the existing equipment in my shop.Yesterday I understood how to correctly wire this...

Extra hands that work surprisingly well

Extra hands that work surprisingly well

I saw these some time ago on a show. New Yankee Workshop, I think. I, like many others, find myself well, by myself in the shop when it is time to cut 4×8 sheets of ply. While I do have an eager 7yr old it is not safe for him nor I. These work by pulling the board against the fence as it is fed. The angle of the rollers does the work. The set screw with the eyelet allows you to adjust the level of the rollers based on the board thickness you are feeding through it. The YELLOW ro...

Nice accessory

Nice accessory

947 days ago by Tedstor | 6 comments »

Not a whole lot to say about a tool like this. I was looking for a device to hold stuff down on my work bench top. Amazon was selling this one for $10 shipped. I was a bit weary of ordering it since the stock photos made the screw threads look a bit too fine for my taste. However, as the included pic shows, the threads are actually fairly coarse. Nice. Installation is very straight forward. I’m pretty sure the manufacturer intends a 3/8 bolt to be used to attach the clamp to the benc...
