In search of thin kerf Rip blade

In search of thin kerf Rip blade

08-24-2010 08:39 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 7 comments »

I already own what I and many consider the best ripping saw blade in industry (( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/976 )) but there is one disadvantage with using that, the kerf is THICK. so although that’s my go to blade when I need to put a perfect edge on a long board, I needed a thin kerf blade for rip cuts without the need to mortgage the house.I decided to go real cheap and give one of those Frued 7” diablo blades a try when I saw this from Ridgid. So I decided to give it a chance. It has ...

Floor mats are a good value but not the best I've used

Floor mats are a good value but not the best I've used

12-30-2012 10:23 PM by mbs | 7 comments »

I purchased two sets of floor mats from Rockler because they were on sale and I got free shipping. Each set was $20 for 20 square feet (6 pcs) which is pretty cheap at $1/sq. ft. I place them around my workbench but I don’t put them in front of my table saw because they could be a trip hazard. I’ve used these for years at my other shop so while I only gave them 4 stars, I like the value enough to buy them again. They provide some cushioning to the feet and protect tools that...

Outstanding Customer Service From Highland Woodworking/Olson Saw

Outstanding Customer Service From Highland Woodworking/Olson Saw

07-16-2012 04:35 AM by MT_Stringer | 7 comments »

Recently I bought a 1/8 inch 14 Tooth band saw blade from Highland Woodworking for my new 14 inch Grizzly band saw. It was working great as I was cutting out patterns glued onto 1/4 inch mdf. I had cut ten of them (fat fonts – about 5 inches tall), when suddenly the blade broke just as I was starting the next one. No stress or strain. I ordered another blade and a 3/16 inch 4 tooth blade from HW and I sent them an email detailing what had happened. I asked if the blade could be re-we...

Doweling Jig Kit - Good Idea - Poor Quality

Doweling Jig Kit - Good Idea - Poor Quality

12-16-2013 03:06 PM by Dan Tindall | 7 comments »

As a followup to my post in the project blog, I thought that I would post a review of this product. I’ve used it now to drill about 64 holes and I can say without a doubt that this product is a good idea that was not executed very well. First, the “dial a size” portion of the jig is attached via a screw and cannot be tightend enough to keep it from wobbeling. Next, the alignment markers are very hard to read and the jig was difficult to position on smaller stock. T...

Accurate and Powerful

Accurate and Powerful

04-08-2010 08:18 AM by mcase | 7 comments »

I had this machine shipped from Grizzly several months ago. The shipping was timely arriving in just three business days! The machine was everything I hoped for. The tables were dead flat. They adjusted to absolute coplanar. And the machine was very powerful. I had an 1×8” hard maple board set aside just to test this machine and it trued it lickety split. I’ve been using it for months now and am very happy with this purchase. It trues up stock square and smoot...

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

06-16-2015 07:32 PM by NZSixNine | 7 comments »

I selected three of these – the two-hundred dollars for a complete set in 64’s was out of my range. As other reviewers noted, they are SHARP. Thus, be careful removing the plastic covering they ship with – I cut myself pulling it off the half-inch bit. As well, if you purchase individual bits – as I did – have a case ready fr them or plan on building one to protect them. Don’t use them in wood where nails may be present – as I did – for once ...

Quieter, better filtration than standard shop vac

Quieter, better filtration than standard shop vac

06-28-2016 05:34 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

How I Use Dust Collection In My ShopI use a dust collector, as well as two shop vacuums for dust collection. One is a “6.5 hp” Ridgid that stays at the router table, and disconnects easily for shop cleanup. The other one is a small Ridgid vac dedicated to the miter saw. These vacs seem to do their job, and the howling noise they make doesn’t bother me much because the tools they are attached to are just as loud. Furthermore, the miter saw and router table tend to be used...

A Router Designed for the Table

A Router Designed for the Table

05-18-2008 02:59 AM by mikebremner | 7 comments »

I recently decided that I needed a new router as my old DeWalt was looking a bit long in the tooth. A quick trip to my local store to check their price on a new DeWalt and I found this Triton with 75% off. As soon as I seen the price the decision was made for me. Triton sell two models of router – the smaller 2-1/4HP model and this one – the bigger 3-1/4HP. The first thing I noticed when I got it home was the weight as I lifted it out of the box – this is one heavy beast ...

Just wanted to post some pictures of new Oliver 4230 jointer I recently set up in basement workshop. I looked at a lot of reviews before pulling tigger on Oliver. Really liked the weight at 655 lbs, long bed and overall look of machine. Took 4 of us to get it around and into to back walk out basement door. My two sons at 6’4 and 6’2 and son in law at 6’5. I helped but but at 63 and 5’9, not so much. Moral support. Removed bed and moved in two stages. The machine comes ...

JET 708100 - Excellent value

JET 708100 - Excellent value

05-19-2008 05:22 PM by TheDane | 7 comments »

I purchased my Jet 708100 from a local machine shop, and consider it an excellent value. Assembly was easy (once I figured out some missing info in the instructions) and the trunion, fence, and miter gauge all checked out true with no alignment or adjustment required. I installed my saw on one of Jet’s adjustable rolling bases and have found it to be quite stable. Unlike other contractor saws, the 1.5HP motor is inside the saw’s cabinet, which makes it an excellent candidate...
