Almost Two Years with My Grizzly

Almost Two Years with My Grizzly

02-23-2013 10:29 AM by WillyParker | 7 comments »

I feel fortunate to have this fine machine. After trading up from an ancient contractors saw which although carefully calibrated and adjusted, had limited power and stability. While the new Grizzly is certainly not perfect, in every area significant area, this machine is excellent. It capably performs the most precise woodworking tasks. The machine arrived from the factory with the arbor exactly parallel with the miter slots. As many of you know this is extremely important for doing precis...

Even Better With A Few Modifications

Even Better With A Few Modifications

10-21-2014 09:38 PM by OSU55 | 7 comments »

I’ve had one of these for about 2-1/2 years. Typical of Lee Valley / Veritas tools, everything’s great. You can read all about adjustments, available blades, and the rest in the manual from their website. The tool provides excellent results, but does have a learning curve, and there are a couple of things that make it an even better tool. Initially I ended up with an overly aggressive cut. It would dig in and stop, spin around, sometimes feeling like a slot car on a wiggly piece of track ...

If you've ever wanted to try a wheel marking gauge....

03-18-2011 08:04 AM by Tedstor | 7 comments »

I always wanted to try a wheel marking gauge. However, I never wanted to spend $30+ for a tool that I wasn’t sure I’d even like. I mean, a pencil seemed to do a fine job marking workpieces, so I couldn’t really justify buying a tool that I didn’t actually need. However, a few weeks ago, Rockler had these marked down to $7.50 with free shipping. It appeared to be fairly well made and had most of the features found on the expensive gauges. So I pulled the trigger. My th...

Great Router Table You Can Grow Into!

Great Router Table You Can Grow Into!

02-29-2008 11:07 PM by Hawgnutz | 7 comments »

One of the great attributes of this router table over many others, is the availablity of quality accessories at a reasonable cost. Rockler stocks a complete line of accessories for their table, including the Incra precision router fence. The Incra fence is one of the primary reasons I chose the Rockler table. It goes on easy and was designed fror this particular table top. This table top comes with an insert of 1/4” aluminum pre-drilled for many different routers. If your router ...

Earn your "masters" degree in woodworking without leaving the shop!

Has it really been five years? This week Charles Neil released the two hundred forty-fifth episode of his “Mastering Woodworking” show. For the one or two people in the woodworking world who don’t already know, “Mastering Woodworking” is a weekly video series produced in the workshop of Charles Neil, one of the biggest names in the craft. But is it any good? Well, as someone who has been a subscriber for a good portion of the show’s run, I think I’m qualified to give my opinion on the matter…...

Peachtree Drill Press Dust Collector

Peachtree Drill Press Dust Collector

11-21-2010 01:50 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

Does what it is supposed to do …you can adjust the hose to any position you like and it stays right where you put it. The box includes everything you need to install on a standard drill press … unless you have an 8”, 10”, and some models of 12” benchtop drill presses. I assume this attachment is intended for use on floor models, but you can using it on benchtop models is a buit of a challenge. I considered returning it, but this was a deeply discounted deal...

Needs more refinement

Needs more refinement

I already have the Veritas wheel marking gauge w/ micro adjust, but I wanted another marking gauge because oftentimes, I wanted to save my settings, but with only 1 marking gauge, I couldn’t. I found this at Lee Valley for $20 and it was 2 marking gauges in 1, so I figured it was a good deal. One unexpectedly nice thing about this gauge is that it will not roll off your bench. I have had my large (and more expensive!) wheel marking roll off my bench before, and the cutter got damag...

Inexpensive great task light

Inexpensive great task light

02-28-2014 02:11 AM by EBpenguy | 7 comments »

I went to the recent Woodworking Show in Somerset, NJ and saw a really nice, goose necked LED task light at one of the booths. It was pretty slick, but almost $70 to buy. I had already overspent my budget and was not happy to pass on this! I told one of my woodturning buddies about it and he suggested I look instead at a similar light he had used from IKEA for $9.99. And I am glad I listened to him. IKEA sells this as the Jansjo desk lamp number 201.696.58 in black. It also comes in white...

Shop Made Honing Machine

Shop Made Honing Machine

11-01-2009 05:22 PM by Andrew | 7 comments »

I was communicating in a project from dbhost about this honing machine so I thought I would share it here. I got this motor (1/2 hp 1750rpm) from Metal Mike, a nieghbor, same guy who traded a working drll press for a broken band saw. I took 2 peices of MDF and glued them together, roughed a circle, about 10” diameter, then mounted it on my lathe. I turned it into a perfect circle, lathes are good at that. I then purchased a work arbor from woodcraft, I think $14. Mounted the MDF ci...
