my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

09-10-2017 05:22 PM by paulsss | 8 comments »

I purchased the Griazzly and was excited when it arrived and was set-up per instructions. I wanted this model because it ranged 1/8” to 3/4” blades. I do alot of smaller pieces, so having the 1/8” was a large part of making final decision. That’s when problems started piling up. I could not get the 1/8” blade to track, even after the tech support told me to take sandpaper to a perfectly good tire.The manual clearly says all calibrations are done at the shop...

Steel City 14" Bandsaw

Steel City 14" Bandsaw

02-29-2008 12:38 AM by closetguy | 8 comments »

I bought this saw from Redmond & Son in Atlanta. I wanted to upgrade from my ¾ HP Jet and after looking at the features, I was sold. The price was $699 and I added the Kreg fence for another $100. They forklifted it into my truck, but it was fairly easy to unload by myself. The saw comes in two boxes. The first thing I did was open the manual with the intention of spending the next hour deciphering the instructions, because I have a lot of power tools and “been there, done that” wi...

Neiko 9 pc. Heavy Duty Chrome Vanadium Wood Chisels set w/ Aluminum Case

Neiko 9 pc. Heavy Duty Chrome Vanadium Wood Chisels set w/ Aluminum Case

07-03-2011 03:20 PM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

This Neiko 9 pc. chisels set includes 1/4” to 1 1/2”. They were surprisingly sharp out of the box. I have had them nearly a month, so have only used three of the chisels over two occasions with… well… chisel-like results. When I received them, I did yank around on the handles (won’t budge), pounded the handle end with a smooth-faced framing hammer several times (rubber mallet not aggressive enough for the hammer test), and even purposefully dropped one of th...

DeWalt DWS7085 Mitre Saw LED Worklight System

DeWalt DWS7085 Mitre Saw LED Worklight System

11-30-2015 04:13 AM by wseand | 8 comments »

A friend of mine gave me this awhile back and I didn’t think I would use it because I realy didn’t need the extra light. Well I guess I should have installed it earlier then I did. I have been using it for some time now and wonder how I cut without it before. I think it is a great accessory, I would say better then a laser light. I believe they run about 35 bucks and I would say well worth the investment. It is quite easy to install even for a knot head as myself. Although, i...

BeadLOCK system

BeadLOCK system

02-29-2008 12:51 AM by jerry118 | 8 comments »

The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the gui...

You can make your SketchUp model dance

You can make your SketchUp model dance

I just got this a few days ago and I love it already. That being said I should probably start with a description before I get questions about how many horsepower this router has or why the sander has a blue light on it. This is a navigation device that is used for 3D graphics programs. I have seen people at work use similar devices but they actually do CAD for a living. I only do SketchUp for fun but this device is amazing. When you move the knob it is exactly like you are moving the objec...

I just received my Grizzly $140 router table and its all I could ask for after having tried to make my own router table and ending up with a bowed/warped tabletop with no fence. The black powder coated lets and braces were stuck to the paper inserts meant to keep the pieces apart, but I think that is a minor complaint given the value of the overall package. Once put together, I now have a fully functional router table with fence and insert plate. Assembly was very easy. Although it lo...

I bought this sander a year ago and wish I had purchased one years ago. this machine saves hours worth of hand sanding. the only problem I have with it is the feed belt tracking. I have to adjust it after a few hours of use but it is a simple chore to readjust

Small gripe about the grip.

Small gripe about the grip.

07-06-2011 11:21 PM by cam1297 | 8 comments »

I held out for a long time before I dropped the $50 to buy the Gorilla Gripper. It says it will grip and carry sheet goods from 3/8 to 1 1/8 inch thick. I could not get it to hold and carry 1/2 inch thick drywall without it sliding off. It was also difficult to adjust the gripping faces to hold the sheets. I was trying to carry the new ultra light drywall. It was easier to carry the panels myself than it was with the gorilla gripper. On the website, it shows the gripper being used to ca...

Zona Razor Saws - Complete Set from 14 to 52 TPI plus 4-in-1 and Alum. Miter Set

I got the 8” dovetail saw first. I liked it, so got the 4-in-1 and the Deluxe Saw and Miter set next. Again, I was impressed. so much so that I recently purchased the rest of them from 14 TPI to 52 TPI. I should be set for awhile on small razor saws. These feel good to hold and use in my chub hands. They are very sharp, cut quickly and extremely cleanly. They are pretty much disposable (the blades can’t be replaced), but I am certain they will last me and my little projects ...
