Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

09-30-2013 06:44 PM by Bill1974 | 8 comments »

The first picture is just after it died a small fiery death. The second pic is from lowes website, the canister is not really that tall is a more squat. Purchased this in the summer of 2008 and it lasted till September of 2013. I purchased a Ridgid WD1851 to replace it, after it died. I used it for house renovations and some dust collection. It had seen a good amount of drywall dust and concrete dust (which is what lead to its demise). The bushing (not bearing) wore and the motor shaf...

Sharp cutting tools at last!

Sharp cutting tools at last!

11-23-2008 01:56 AM by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

Like many, I’ve looked at wet grinders (in particular the Tormek’s) for some time hoping to make sharpening an easier and more productive endeavor. I’ve tried using diamond sharpening stones with limited success. My chisels were sharper, but still not as sharp as I thought they should be. I’d see people cutting these fine shavings and I was essentially working with blunt instruments. The biggest sticking point for me (any most other people) is the high price, esp...

Great Saw but Assembly was Quirky

Great Saw but Assembly was Quirky

03-13-2014 05:20 AM by ontheworkbench | 8 comments »

This is my first band saw so perhaps this may not be the best review, but with that in mind I will proceed anyway. I had been looking at bandsaws for a while, and was trying to find one that I thought would fit my needs now and into the future. I just could not justify a benchtop saw as those are not well suited for resawing, but I also wanted to stay in a reasonable budget. Ultimately it came down to this one and the Ridgid. I chose this saw over the orange one due to the closed base which h...

I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....

Track Saw

Track Saw

04-16-2016 04:43 AM by Steve | 8 comments »

Used my Festool track saw Model TS-75-EQ for the first time today. This is by far the very best tool that is in my collection. If I could give it a 10 out of 5 that would be my rating. I have a good quality 10” Cabinet saw, General Canada and the cut from that compared to the Festool does not even compare. I had cut a couple pieces of 3/4” cabinet grade plywood with Maple veneer at 21-1/2” on my cabinet saw and when the pieces were stacked together you could feel a sli...

Flush Cutting Inside a Curved Seat Blank

Flush Cutting Inside a Curved Seat Blank

03-18-2013 03:54 AM by DustyMark | 8 comments »

Check out this short video review of the Stanley Fat Max 20-331 Flush-Cut Saw. I noticed this saw during a recent trip to Woodcraft and purchased it in hopes that it could cut 1” through leg tenons on the inside face of a curved seat blank. It worked quite well. The blade has enough flex to follow the gentle curve of the seat blank without leave any marks on surface of the blank. The teeth are quite sharp and cut through the ash leg tenons with minimal effort. I’m not sure ...

My entire history with this saw thus far.

My entire history with this saw thus far.

The first 2/3 of this will be copied and pasted from the first impressions of the saw and my 6 month review of it on the forums here. The last section will be new. If you have already read my first 2 posts about this or don’t feel like reading it skip to section 3/3. _1/3 Purchased a 35990G as a floor model from my local Steel City warehouse distributor. I figured I’d leave some initial thoughts of the saw as there was not much out there for information before I purchased. ...

New table saw and CMS  blades at Busy Bee - Canada Blue Torando.

New table saw and CMS blades at Busy Bee - Canada Blue Torando.

11-12-2009 11:33 PM by Bob #2 | 8 comments »

A pleasant surprise at a very decent price at Busy Bee Tools.I have been thinking about a new general purpose blade for a couple of months and spotted this one at the trade show here about a week ago.The blade and teeth are reportedly from German technology and fabricated in China.I noticed right away that the carbide tips were longer and seemed marginally thicker than most thin kerf blades I had been looking at. I must measure my old one.They have an anti vibration laser kerf in the body...

Small sander that does a big job

Small sander that does a big job

02-27-2010 09:52 PM by Sawdust4Blood | 8 comments »

I bought one of these because I was looking for a detail sander that could get me into the corners of furniture projects. But since I make sawdust almost every weekend, I was looking for something that was going to last. I had looked around at a lot of other detail sanders and they all struck me as cheap flimsy things designed to be used on one or two projects then forgotten or thrown away. I also considered a couple of the multi-function tools for their utility but sanding was more important...

Okay so my parents are quite wonderful let me just say that. I just graduated college with a degree in MIS and they bought me this planer as a graduation present! Anyways onto the review. So as a back story to backup my review i have a few friends who have the Dewalt 735 and another who has an older Delta couldn’t tell you the model. I have seen the results of these planers and they were all okay, the Delta gave a lot of snip but that is no surprise as it is older. The dewalt does pr...
