Accurate and Powerful

04-08-2010 08:18 AM by mcase | 7 comments »

I had this machine shipped from Grizzly several months ago. The shipping was timely arriving in just three business days! The machine was everything I hoped for. The tables were dead flat. They adjusted to absolute coplanar. And the machine was very powerful. I had an 1×8” hard maple board set aside just to test this machine and it trued it lickety split. I’ve been using it for months now and am very happy with this purchase. It trues up stock square and smoot...

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

06-16-2015 07:32 PM by NZSixNine | 7 comments »

I selected three of these – the two-hundred dollars for a complete set in 64’s was out of my range. As other reviewers noted, they are SHARP. Thus, be careful removing the plastic covering they ship with – I cut myself pulling it off the half-inch bit. As well, if you purchase individual bits – as I did – have a case ready fr them or plan on building one to protect them. Don’t use them in wood where nails may be present – as I did – for once ...

A Router Designed for the Table

A Router Designed for the Table

05-18-2008 02:59 AM by mikebremner | 7 comments »

I recently decided that I needed a new router as my old DeWalt was looking a bit long in the tooth. A quick trip to my local store to check their price on a new DeWalt and I found this Triton with 75% off. As soon as I seen the price the decision was made for me. Triton sell two models of router – the smaller 2-1/4HP model and this one – the bigger 3-1/4HP. The first thing I noticed when I got it home was the weight as I lifted it out of the box – this is one heavy beast ...

New Oliver 4230 8" Jointer

05-30-2014 05:00 PM by bons | 7 comments »

Just wanted to post some pictures of new Oliver 4230 jointer I recently set up in basement workshop. I looked at a lot of reviews before pulling tigger on Oliver. Really liked the weight at 655 lbs, long bed and overall look of machine. Took 4 of us to get it around and into to back walk out basement door. My two sons at 6’4 and 6’2 and son in law at 6’5. I helped but but at 63 and 5’9, not so much. Moral support. Removed bed and moved in two stages. The machine comes ...

JET 708100 - Excellent value

JET 708100 - Excellent value

05-19-2008 05:22 PM by TheDane | 7 comments »

I purchased my Jet 708100 from a local machine shop, and consider it an excellent value. Assembly was easy (once I figured out some missing info in the instructions) and the trunion, fence, and miter gauge all checked out true with no alignment or adjustment required. I installed my saw on one of Jet’s adjustable rolling bases and have found it to be quite stable. Unlike other contractor saws, the 1.5HP motor is inside the saw’s cabinet, which makes it an excellent candidate...

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Craftsman 12" Sliding Miter

Craftsman 12" Sliding Miter

12-25-2009 08:55 AM by Bob Kollman | 7 comments »

This miter saw has been very good purchase, I made some compromises in order to have a sliding compound miter sooner rather than later. I choose this one because of price $230.00 (I think the regular price is like $330.00), and durability. When I looked at the display model, it was firm and square. The saw has all the power I need, and most of the time I’m using it for cross cuts, and simple 45’s and 22.5’s . Out of the box everything was squared up, I had to make a slight...

great for ad-hoc jigs

02-18-2012 09:30 PM by John | 7 comments »

pics show just one example of using this product. I made this ad-hoc tapering jig for a project today in about 4 minutes, the rockler hold downs are great! as you can see i used one rockler and one cheap chinese knockoff hold down – big difference! the cheapo flexes and has a plastic insert that’s always getting sideways i will break this jig down now that i’m done cutting tapers for today (see pic below) and put the track and hold downs back into the clear plastic tube t...

RIDGID GEN5X Combo Kit, Up For Review + A Giveaway!

08-06-2015 01:50 PM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

Alright y’all, I’ve recently reviewed the GEN5X line of tools and I gotta say I’m nothing short of impressed with the features, quality, and power. So, like normal the GEN5X review is on my blog, but what’s awesome (and what everyone is probably more interested in) is that RIDGID is sponsoring a giveaway for the GEN5X Combo Kit. So if free tools sound good to you then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the review. If free tools don’t sound good then, well...
