Steel City 1HP dust collector

Steel City 1HP dust collector

07-30-2008 01:03 AM by kaferhaus | 8 comments »

Just bought this yesterday at the local Woodcraft (good folks here) With the exception of the the four bolts that hold the blower assy to the frame, assembly was rather uneventful. After assembly I immediately put the collector to use attached to my table saw and it seemed to work “ok”, not great. Even though I was using a zero clearance insert, a good amount of dust managed to escape from every nook and cranny from the cabinet. The collection only seems to be marginally b...

Kreg's new AutoMaxx 6" Bench Klamps

Kreg's new AutoMaxx 6" Bench Klamps

09-18-2014 03:47 AM by timbertailor | 8 comments »

If you are already a proud owner of an assembly table with some type of extruded aluminium track solution, then keep reading. I recently decided to build an assembly table and was looking for some new clamps to accompany my table. I found a product presentation on YouTube and decided to give them a try. First, they are very powerful. The first thing I had to do once I had them installed on the table using a dual purpose track (1 3/4” x 1/2”) was to turn down the clamping for...

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

I got a Rockler Gift card for Christmas this past year (yay!), which means I finally had no excuse to not buy the State Park Font template set I have been wanting. And for the most part it was exactly what I was expecting. HOWEVER two issues… #1. Do NOT use the tempate in the manner shown by Rockler. Your router base WILL hang on it, and if you give too much pressure it can hop up and ram the bit through whatever is in the way. #2. The brass bushing that came with mine is defectiv...

A Short & Sweet Resource

A Short & Sweet Resource

07-14-2011 12:06 PM by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

This book review is from the July 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag. Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw: The Missing Shop Manual “Bench Planes” by Ernie Conover. At first, I thought about rating this little booklet as a 4-star because I don’t use planes. But, as I started watching the enclosed video and re-looked at the contents, I realized that it definitely had to be a 5-star. If I had a plane I might just have put it to work after being in...

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

09-22-2012 12:31 AM by ProDrawerCom | 8 comments »

9-21-2012: Other reviews on LumberJocks convinced me that the far less expensive version at Home Depot (the Ridgid brand) was the same product as the yellow MagSwitch. I’m in the middle of rough cutting plywood to build cabinets for my kitchen. Always wanted to try one of these because I believe in feather boards but just never get around to cutting some from wood. I really need them now. And I really need two because I’m cutting big stuff. I usually don’t ask clerks if they have a certain pr...

Cheap, but works very well

Cheap, but works very well

01-22-2010 02:42 AM by funchuck | 8 comments »

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...

Byrd Shelix Planer Head Retro

Byrd Shelix Planer Head Retro

11-14-2011 04:15 PM by tenontim | 8 comments »

Decided to upgrade my 15” Grizzly planer to the Byrd shelix head. This head not only has the helical design, but the inserts are set at an angle to cause a shear cut to the wood, which will cut down on tear out and give a smoother cut. The cost of replacing the standard blades was beginning to get my attention, so if these index-able, 4 sided, carbide inserts hold up as advertised, I should be saving some money. I bought this planer head through Grizzly, which is on sale right now f...

Nice product, with a few gripes

Nice product, with a few gripes

11-02-2010 10:57 PM by Vrtigo1 | 8 comments »

Ordered this from Amazon.com about three months ago. The lift is impressive upon first inspection. The heft and quality of the fit and finish gives you the impression that it’s well built. This was replacing a regular JessEm router plate, so it was brain-dead easy to install – just remove the old plate, install the lift and then level it. This is where I ran into issues with the first lift. There are threaded through holes all the way around the plate, and you thread the supp...

A gem from Porter Cable

A gem from Porter Cable

05-30-2010 08:11 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 8 comments »

I went through a period of having to do A LOT of glue ups to make table tops and wide panels.Not wanting to dowel it all I decided it was time to splurge on a new toy! I picked up this little baby.Right out of the box things were looking great. It comes with a nice hardshell case. Some things about this case I really like are how spacious it is. I hate it when the hardshell cases hardly hold the tool and you have to mash it to get it close. Thats IF you figure out how to get the tool in with ...
