Introduction I bought this in 2014 and have now used it enough (and procrastinated enough) that it’s time to do a review. It’s a long one because when I was shopping for this there were no reviews anywhere and now I’m in the same boat with no reviews of table saws I’m looking at so I decided I needed to pay it forward and do my part by doing a detailed review. Hopefully someone finds it useful. In making this purchase I looked at a number of alternatives. I looked at ...

Premium Saws Indeed

Premium Saws Indeed

10-06-2009 04:40 AM by taylodr | 8 comments »

So when I first saw the Veritas Dovetail saw and it’s price – I wanted it. I endlessly searched everywhere on the internet for reviews and came up with just a few. Everywhere said “They get great reviews, but I’m not sure…” We I was sold, I wanted to try it out. I never bought it. I said if they had more than one, a matched set or something, that I would get one. Well, they do now. I figured for a little more than the price of one nice doveta...

Foot Savers

Foot Savers

07-26-2011 06:33 AM by coloradoclimber | 8 comments »

My shop space has a concrete floor. I’m ok with the concrete, it is easy to clean and easy to roll my tools around. But it is KILLER on my feet and back. I have flat feet, you know the kind that when you walk barefoot they make a sucking sound when you pick your feet up. The kind that when people see your foot prints in the sand they think the web footed monster from the black lagoon must have strolled by. And because of my feet after any full day in the shop my feet just ache, whi...

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

12-01-2011 05:47 PM by wookie | 8 comments »

Hey Jocks and Jockettes, Disclaimer: I gave this product a 2- star rating just based on the problems detailed below. After much drama, hand-wringing, and pure obsession, the 22124 Zip CodeTS is almost complete except for the outfeed table. It was purchased off of CL. The saw was still on the pallet with the steel cage on it. The seller brought two of them in a semi lot of stuff. He sells the stuff at a little store in a small town in southern IL. Very nice man. He wanted $600, no ...

Jig Broke on first use

Jig Broke on first use

07-13-2015 08:40 PM by Richard | 8 comments »

Bought this 3 months ago to use for making gum Ball machines. Used it for the first time yesterday after mounting it to my new De Walt compact router back in April. Made the first 2 cuts at 1/4” and 1/2” then when about a little over half way thru the 3/4” deep cut the plate broke at screw mounting hole and let the bit hit the plate at the 1” pin hole. Also had issues keeping the locating pin in the plate , it keep falling out when I turned the Router over. This is a g...

Logging Arch to move medium size logs

Logging Arch to move medium size logs

07-27-2011 03:15 PM by HalDougherty | 8 comments »

I found a great logging arch for sale on Craig’s List last week. It was located about 300 miles from my shop, but the seller was kind enough to meet me 100 miles closer. That was a big help and saved me about 3 hours of driving time. The American Bandsaw company makes a great product to move logs. The model I bought used is a 24-12 arch. It is designed to move a log 12’ long, 24” in diameter and 3000 lbs in weight. The sycamore log in the first photo is 24” on the ...

Awesome pocket hole system

Awesome pocket hole system

10-08-2012 03:53 PM by pendledad | 8 comments »

I was trying to determine the best method for joining together my radiator covers. I didn’t have time for traditional joinery like mortise & tenon. I needed something where I could build 4 radiator covers in about two days (very fast for a newcomer like me). I was going between a biscuit joiner and pocket screws. I finally decided on pocket screws because I didn’t want to deal with the gluing and drying. I also liked the fact that I could disassemble the pieces if I made ...

Rigid Collated Screw Gun. Drive about 20 screws / minute (with video)

I’ve started renovating the house. This tool might not be used a lot in the shop but for this use it’s pretty nice. Lot’s of tearing down and lots of new sheetrock going up. Also lots of backerboard and subfloor. I dread all the screws. I came across this rigid (made by Senco) collated screwgun at HD. It is a corded drill that has a mechanism to hold a plastic tape of drywall or flooring screws. They feed up through a slot automatically. The mechanism that feeds them is simp...

Save Your Money

I bought these blades as a set about a year ago now, however they did not last that long in my saw, they stayed in my miter saw and table saw for about a week and then they found a new home on my blade rack only to be taken down for the odd occasion when I build a deck. I paid about $40.00 for this two-pack of blades and they aren’t even worth that in my mind, but I was looking for a good deal and this popped right up. I find that the yellow strip makes more friction than anything else and it...

Onyx 2000

After looking around for the last year at all the major brands all I kept hearing from the salesmen was it’s almost as a good as a powermatic and you can save a few bucks. The sawstop is a great safty feature but the saw itself in my opinionj is only fair. So I splurged and got the black onyx single phase 3 hp. I do have one complaint and that is the wood extension table. I understand the need for a lite table as when you lift the saw thye extension table cantilivers out there. They cou...
