I have had this saw for about 4 months now and have dropped probably about 50 trees and cut avout 15 cords of wood. I bought it to replace a husky 266xp. Power- i run it with a 18” or 24” it has no trouble running either with a full comp sthil/ oregon full comp 3/8-.50 pro chain and has a good power band. i have buried the 24” bar in oak and it just goes. ergonomics- it is the smoothest running saw i have owned. you can definatly tell the vibrations transmited to the g...

Miter gauge and blade purchase

Sunday after a long workweek was over, with a little too much overtime for my taste I was reading Rockler sales paper. I had Monday off and Blondie was working, OH no, so off to Rockler I go. I received a coupon in the mail for 50 % of a 2nd item after purchasing a regular priced item of equal or less value. So I put in the reading glass’s ( New for me never had to before, LOL ) to read their fine print of all the things that were excluded from this coupon. I was happy to read Forres...

I purchased this router because I needed something lighter than my 691 plunge base in order to keep being able to do some woodworking. I bought the router andmost of the accessories for it, the fence(the inexpensive one), the round base to use with bushings, the vacuum adaptors for both bases. I used it for the first time to let in some banding and do some round over work on my current project. I am impressed with the the tool. It is easy to handle with either base. The plunge base is easy to...

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

06-25-2011 05:30 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I was beginning to think I would never have much luck resawing on the bandsaw. I had been using Delta blades that were pretty well worn. I wanted a blade that would slice 3/16” veneers that I could plane down to a consistent 1/8” thick for laminating leg stock. This blade fits the bill. Give the man at your local woodworking store a $20 bill in exchange for the ability to resaw with ease. This is a 3 tpi X 1/2”wide hook blade with a raker set. As such it is very aggres...

After Market Table Saw Splitter, Shark Guard

After Market Table Saw Splitter, Shark Guard

08-15-2014 06:29 PM by woodshopmike | 8 comments »

Worried about kickback on your table saw? Who isn’t really? Most if not all modern saws arrive with either a splitter or riving knife that prevents wood from pinching the back side of a table saw blade as the stock is run through the saw. This little piece of material pays dividends in preventing kickback. So if most saws come with such a device already installed, why write a review about an after market product? Because if you’re like me, you use vintage machinery. In my case...

Grizzly 17" GO513 BS

Grizzly 17" GO513 BS

I bought a Grizzly 17” bs model#513 a few weeks ago. It arrived in exellent condtion and took less then a hours to put it together and fine tune it. I have now resawn aroung 20bdft of apple, 5 bdft of walnut and several others. It has not bogged down much, only when cutting a 1/4” peice off of a chunk that was 11-1/2” tall. This may also due to the fact that it is running on 120at this time and shareing the circuit w/ a few lights. All in all it is a exellent machine and wel...

I am posting this so all the LJ-ers out there won’t start thinking I drank some kind of Harbor Freight Cool Aid or anything like that… A while back I acquired a Drill Master 94203 1” to 2-1/2” Hole Saw Set from Harbor Freight Tools to bore some large holes after my old Ace Hardware set was discovered missing. (Long story, problem since solved). As often as I have been using a hole saw, I figured a cheapie wouldn’t be a bad thing. I was wrong. The good. T...

Grizzly G0555LX - 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Love it

I bought this bandsaw this past spring. I also bought the riser block to obtain a 12” cutting capacity.I really like this saw, it has plenty of power, runs smooth with no vibration. Fit an finish was on the mark and assembly was straight forward. I did have to add shims to the riser block, other than that is has been performing well for me. It has cut everything I have asked it to (and some I didn’t ….. 9 stiches right index finger) from mdf to plywood to oak and I am su...

Don't buy

Bought this stand the other day. Get it home take it out of the box, simple to setup. Can’t get the thing to be level when tightening the screws. The pipe shifts because it’s to small for the casting, the top base sits all wonky only has one screw to mount . Taking back, bought a Sears stand for less and works fine.
