snap cap keeps popping up

snap cap keeps popping up

01-05-2013 10:54 PM by John | 8 comments »

this plane is made from nice materials and is nicely machined. the blade is nice and thick and holds its edge unfortunately, it has two modes; loose enough to adjust the blade but the snap cap pops open unexpectedly, or tight enough to keep the cap closed which is too tight to adjust the blade I have the same issue with the low angle version of this plane as well. whenever you get behind it, you run the risk of popping the cap, then it’s a PITA to get the cap back on and back to w...

Excellent option for portable dust collection

Excellent option for portable dust collection

12-24-2013 07:52 PM by lumberjoe | 8 comments »

Like many, I don’t have the space or power requirements for a large dust collector. I need something small that doesn’t draw a lot of power (I only have 30 amps available). This little unit fits the bill. I have my tools aranged so everything that needs a proper 4” dust collector is in close proximity, and I have a quick connect on the hose. The good: This unit is quiet compared to a shop vac and has plenty of power when connected to one tool at a time. It has no troub...

Gimlets

Gimlets

02-24-2012 01:08 PM by Roger | 8 comments »

This is the 1st time, and NOT the last that I will use these handy-dandy “Gimlets”. The 7 different sizes are a gr8, and quick way to make a threaded starter hole for the 7 different sized screws. I just used the smallest of the set to attach the buttons for the backs of a few picture frames. Very simple, and ez/breeeezee. These are made in France, and very affordable. You can see em at this link: http://www.garrettwade.com/set-of-gimlets-7/p/37J03.04/

Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane

Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane

01-06-2013 12:55 PM by BigDawg | 8 comments »

I am not surprised at how well refined this plane is. The sole is perfectly square to the sides and the blade is perfectly ground to just barely hang over the edge of the rabbet hole. The blade is extremely easy to flatten and sharpen and I had the plane up and running in about 15 minutes after I protected the metal surfaces with CRC 3-36 spray lubricant. Features First of all, I have tried both the medium and large shoulder plane, but I ultimately bought the medium shoulder plane becau...

Robo Reel Long Overdue Rated A+++

Robo Reel Long Overdue Rated A+++

This review is long overdue, which is a good thing. I wanted a long courtship. I don’t know if this thing has exploded into the World’s greatest invention or not; I’ve been out of it a bit. .See blog first at:http://lumberjocks.com/Bertha/blog/31229.OK, this thing seems expensive, that’s the first response. My experience with the unit warrants the price..Whether than go through the pros/cons, I’ll just stream-of-consciousness my experience with it..I installed it...

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

06-22-2014 06:06 PM by retfr8flyr | 8 comments »

I have had my Baileigh Industrial JP-1250 for about 8 months now and I think I have used it enough to give a credible review. Baileigh has been around in the metal machine business for years but just started getting into woodworking machines. I did a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on this machine and decided, at the price it was selling for, I couldn’t pass it up. The machine arrived in great shape with excellent packaging. It comes with 4 heavy casters but they don̵...

Whiteside Router Bit UDFT5152 Flush Trim Up/Down Spiral Bit

Whiteside Router Bit UDFT5152 Flush Trim Up/Down Spiral Bit

10-29-2017 05:00 AM by Rich | 8 comments »

First, pardon the commercial web site photo. I usually prefer to post my own photos, but in this case, the image from the web site shows it best. This router bit is such a great performer. I’ve used two-flute flush trim bits for years with mixed success. If you can manage to run with the grain, they work beautifully. Using a combination bit with bearings on the top and bottom helps with that because you can flip the piece with the template attached and adjust the bit height so th...

Cheapest no-tip track upgrade I can find

Cheapest no-tip track upgrade I can find

05-15-2015 02:35 PM by paxorion | 8 comments »

Ever since the IWF 2014, I have been dying to pick up the new BORA guide systems. After months of hunting and phone calls to BORA, I finally managed to get my hands on the BORA saw plate. The short story is…it’s awesome. Paired with the BORA WTX, this answers the mail on a track system upgrade for my Porter Cable PC15TCSMK. The Good: Works as advertised. The saw guide is (supposedly) compatible with any straight edge guide in the market. I’ve tested it with both t...

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

The LOW-DOWN of the RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw by WISTY: NOTE: This is a saw that I have had for a while now, I am just getting time to finalize a review for it, enjoy the read! The RIDGID RS1000 is an EXCELLENT saw at an AFFORDABLE price! Excellent for those who are lacking floor space. Highly accurate and extremely powerful saw that is built to last. My personal recommendations are simple: GET ONE AND KEEP IT! Good Luck trying to find one though as anyone who already has one will pr...
