Freud LU88 - Nice for table saw blade, but ...

02-18-2008 06:11 AM by Dave | 8 comments »

I have a Delta 10” Compound Mitre saw. I bought the Freud LU88 saw blade for my Craftsman table saw a couple weeks ago, and WOW, what a difference it made when I cut some test pieces. Buying the LU88 was a HUGE step up for me, and I really noticed the improvement on my cross-cuts. Nice and smooth, hardly bogged down at all (Craftsman 10” 2.5hp TABLE SAW) on 3/4” oak, at least not like my old blade. My question is, will the LU88 blade also work in my compound mitre saw ? ...

Pinnacle blade & chip breaker upgrade for my Stanley Baily #4

Pinnacle blade & chip breaker upgrade for my Stanley Baily #4

02-09-2011 08:02 AM by Dan | 8 comments »

Last week we got hit with a huge snow storm which covered my driveway with a lot of snow. I had to leave for work next morning and didn’t have time to shovel. I was able to get my front wheel drive car out of the driveway without getting stuck. The tires spun out a bit and the back fishtailed a little but after a little effort the car made it out. Later I took my full size 4×4 truck out and it plowed right through the thick snow with ease. No slipping, no spinning and the exit driv...

Wood River #62 low angle Jack Plane

Wood River #62 low angle Jack Plane

08-09-2014 06:26 PM by Florida_Jim | 8 comments »

I’ve wanted a bevel up jack plane for a while. When Wood River brought out their #62, I agonized over paying extra for the lee valley. I have a V3, #4, #5, and a low angle block plane that I’m very happy with. I had a discount coupon so I bought the wood river #62. Out of the box, it was a beauty. The sole was flat, and the sides were dead on square. I bought an extra 25 degree blade, and the 40 degree blade. I polished, and sharpened the blades. I sharpened the 40, and one of the 25’s with a...

Laguna - Great Product!

Laguna - Great Product!

We have had our Laguna bandsaw for about two years now. We use it mostly for resawing medium to small stock. We use the Resaw King carbide tip blade. All I can say is that this is a great saw and the Resaw King blade is remarkable!

Harbor Freight 13" DP (Model 38142)

Harbor Freight 13" DP (Model 38142)

03-14-2009 02:51 PM by knotscott | 8 comments »

This 13” DP is a far cry from my most prestigious tool, and Harbor Freight’s “Central Machinery” brand doesn’t typically conjure up tons of confidence and the obligatory “Tim the tool man Taylor” grunts that the big names will, but this particular purchase has been too good to not give the credit that’s due. The 38142 is a 13”, 16 speed, 3/4 hp benchtop drill press. It weighs in at a respectable 125#, and stands over 40” tall. It ...

Starrett Bimetal Band saw blades

Starrett Bimetal Band saw blades

05-18-2015 11:41 PM by robscastle | 8 comments »

I saw a bi metal blade working at Degoose’s workshop, Larry demomstrated cutting a couple of rips from some timber and the results were very impressive. He cut two runs from a length of timber and produced very accurate results from his band saw fitted with a new Kreg fence. With this in mind I decided to try it for myself on my bandsaw, which BTW is notorious for cutting where ever it wants to, generally not where the operator wants it to go. So I purchased two Blades:-1×224...

Precision Mid-Size Plunge Base and Edge Guide

Precision Mid-Size Plunge Base and Edge Guide

11-27-2015 03:33 PM by RogerBean | 8 comments »

Micro-Fence plunge base w/edge fence This is the nicest, most precise, best machined, smoothest operating, meticulously designed, all round good-looking router plunge base I’ve ever encountered. It’s also the most expensive. You can buy a complete Festool router for less than this base and fence. That doesn’t imply that you should. I ordered one of the Micro Fence “package deals” which included the model that fits my Bosch Colt variable speed trim router plus the fence assembly the co...

3.5 HP Pennstate DC upgrade.

3.5 HP Pennstate DC upgrade.

01-08-2016 04:01 PM by mike1950 | 8 comments »

Have not been around for a while- Life and a shop remodel has stopped woodworking for a while. Getting close to being fully operational again. Needed a DC upgrade so I purchased this unit slightly used. Most pipe and fittings had not been installed and package had most of what I needed. Also included -switched gates- so when gate is opened DC is turned on. I have not wired gates yet nor finished ductwork-waiting on a few parts- but what I have finished I do like. Equipped with muffler DC is n...

Great saw, upgrade fence ASAP!

Great saw, upgrade fence ASAP!

10-26-2011 02:45 PM by slickSqueegie | 8 comments »

ok, So I researched Table saws for a while before I settled on this one. The only problem I have with this saw is the fence. It is a two piece system and I hate trying to align it. They should offer a small tube of Loc-tite for this to keep them from loosening! Or just simply make a one piece rail system!! It is garbage.In its defense I will say that i am used to the uni-fence and that may cause a little hate towards this unit. Ok now that i got that out of the way, all in all I do reco...

Knew Concepts 8" Fret Saw - Great for Dovetailing

Knew Concepts 8" Fret Saw - Great for Dovetailing

07-02-2013 01:04 PM by MoKC | 8 comments »

Rating: 4 out of 5 Bottom Line: Very good fret saw offers an extremely high degree of control which saves time when it comes to fine woodworking tasks. Comes up short when it comes to material selection for the handle. Otherwise generally positive but not a necessity in the workshop given the price. Pros: -Lightweight and extremely maneuverable.-Tightening the saw blade very easy thanks to a micro-adjuster and cam locking mechanism.-Saw blade can be swiveled to a preset +45 degre...
