Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

327 days ago by Albe | 6 comments »

I have never wrote a tool review but after using Rockler’s Coping Sled and not seeing any other reviews I figured I’d try my luck. I actually bought the copping sled several years ago when I got frustrated when using a rail and stile bit set to do the profile on the end grain. No matter how hard I tried bit seemed to grab and it threw it off track. I again realized how much of a lifesaver it is when using it again doing the same operation. Although the copping sled seems a little steep ...

Pricey but excellent

Pricey but excellent

164 days ago by Purrmaster | 6 comments »

This review is for the SawStop contractor’s saw equipped with the 36” inch steel rails and “T-glide” fence. And eventually with the cast iron wings. As a preface let me say that I know that SawStop is controversial among woodworkers. This review is not an argument for or against the SawStop safety system. This review concentrates on its qualities as a table saw, not the safety brake. I’ve had this saw for over a year now and I’ve been extremely ple...

Ok for the money.

Ok for the money.

1645 days ago by SchotterWoodworking | 6 comments »

Picked up this set at Woodcraft for about $25.00. I have used tapered bits in the past and really liked to have them to use as a quick way to drill a pilot and countersink in one step. The case is great, the bits are sharp and straight but one of the countersinks spun on the bit shaft despite my tightening of the set screws. It’s a cheap set compared to the $70.00 and $90.00 sets right beside it in the store and is better than a harbor freight job.

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

162 days ago by Brett41 | 6 comments »

I saw this product posted on my friends Facebook page and noticed all the positive responses so I checked out the website. The video on the site was pretty good and showed how the hook can be used with all air nail guns. I noticed they were in some local stores on Cape Cod. After I could feel the thing and see that it was made well I grabbed one to try for myself to see if it was as easy as the the video made it look. I figured I could always return it. It turns out I really like itR...

I can't believe its not butter

I can't believe its not butter

1910 days ago by Webb | 6 comments »

From what I can see, the mechanics of this jigsaw appear identical to the corded version (the DW331K). Wow – this saw really surprised me. I wound up doing a lot of carpentry recently (cabinets in the garage made out of 2×4’s and plywood) and my B&D drill died. For my anniversary, the loml bought me a DeWalt 18v drill/impact driver combination kit which started me looking for a way to score another battery. Since I had a “lowest price I could find” B&D I t...

Preferred over the Bessey DuoKlamp

Preferred over the Bessey DuoKlamp

1236 days ago by Jack_Isidore | 6 comments »

I needed to pick up 4 clamps for a glue up, and it was between the Bessey DuoKlamp and the Irwin Quick-Grip. I haven’t seen any reviews or posts about the newish Irwin XP-600 line, so I thought I’d post my thoughts. Bessey Duo-Klamps:I recently started using Bessey K-Body parallel clamps and I’ve been impressed, so I bought 4 24” DuoKlamps. One of the features offered with them is the ability to switch from clamping to spreading with the switch of a dial. This seems...

work smarter not harder

work smarter not harder

Hello, Lumber JocksNot real sure how to format a tool review, but here I go.RYOBI 18v Impact DriverI needed a tool to screw in a lot of 1 5/8 dry wall screws. The job was the inside of my shop, putting up chipboard (OSB). I started off with a Bosch drill drive and it was working alright but I could see it taking a long time, besides it was starting to work my wrist and arms when pushing up tight on the screw to get it in place or to keep it from stripping. That’s not Bosch’s fault, that’s...

Ezee-Feed Industrial Infeed Table - Long Term Review, on it's second installation

Ezee-Feed Industrial Infeed Table - Long Term Review, on it's second installation

648 days ago by CessnaPilotBarry | 6 comments »

Often on Lumberjocks, we see lots of reviews of items from folks who have just purchased the item. The Ezee-Feed device I’m writing about has proven it’s value again and again, over the last several years. I purchased this device several years ago, direct from the manufacturer, via ezee-feed.com. I paid full retail price, plus shipping, for the product. This review is 100% my opinion. I work alone. Sheet goods, especially MDF-cored products are heavy! Like most folk...

Review of the Porter Cable 8" Grinder

Review of the Porter Cable 8" Grinder

647 days ago by thewoodworker01 | 6 comments »

Recently I just bought a grinder for the workshop to sharpen my lathe tools. I looked at other grinders and I could really only find a couple grinders with variable speed. This one has variable speed from 2000-3400 rpms. It is a great grinder. I have heard a lot of other people say that this grinder is junk. It isn’t. I have heard people saying that the motor turned over two times and it died. This hasn’t happened to me; I asked the salesman at Lowe’s if I could test the gri...

LaserKerf review

LaserKerf review

1638 days ago by williams | 6 comments »

Received my LaserKerf today and setup on my Dewalt 705 chop saw. All parts fine. Instructions on small cd and on web site. Special instructions for each supported saw. You need to buy special bracket for each saw per the web site. Good news and some not. Pros1) Does what is says. So now my 705 has a laser :-)2) Setup fairly easy (except below)3) Could align perfect to 2×4 and laser fills the kerf perfect.4) Good X alignment5) Good roll alignment.6) Safer. Having that line as ano...
