The Super General is King!

The Super General is King!

03-20-2009 07:40 PM by knotscott | 6 comments »

One glance of the 010-044 Super General gives the immediate impression that this is a state-of-the-art blade, and is made to world class standards. The materials used are the finest examples available, and the manufacturing techniques used are nearly flawless. The teeth are among the largest I’ve seen on any blade, and the gullets are noticeably deep. Two distinctive design characteristics of the Super General’s tooth geometry are what sets it apart from most other premium gene...

Clean dados in framing lumber - 1 star off for instructions

Clean dados in framing lumber - 1 star off for instructions

10-29-2011 08:24 PM by Makai | 6 comments »

Aloha Lumberjocks! This is my first review and my first stacked Dado set. Bought this set for a fencing project with too many cuts for the “move the fence” technique. I visited the local Home Depot, Lowes, Woodcraft, and shopped Amazon. Woodcraft had the Forrest and Freud “dial a dado” sets, but $350 was more than I wanted to spend. I decided to get the Freud SD-208 which had good reviews here on Lumberjocks. Lowes didn’t carry it but Home Depot had somethin...

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

03-20-2009 08:06 PM by Tony | 6 comments »

I recently purchased quite a few of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are the next progression of the old K.Body clamp from Bessey and are available in 8 sizes from 300 mm (12”) to 2500mm (98”). I found the clamps to have a professional feel of German engineering, which gave you confidence when you used them. The clamping pads stay perfectly square and parallel even when full torqued, the non mar pads are very effective on semi h...

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

Upgrade for my Delta Shopmaster 9" Bandsaw

Upgrade for my Delta Shopmaster 9" Bandsaw

10-29-2011 09:29 PM by webbtoyota | 6 comments »

This is my first review so bear with me if it’s not as clear and concise as others. I have a Delta Shopmaster bandsaw and I have absolutely hated using it in the past. I was just about ready to get rid of it until I ran into this website and heard about people “upgrading” the bandsaw with a decent blade and cool blocks. I decided to try this route before I put it up for sale. I just recently purchased a new Olson 1/4” 6 tpi blade and a set of cool blocks (about $30 ...

Leecraft HT-1 Zero Clearance Insert

Leecraft HT-1 Zero Clearance Insert

09-08-2012 12:44 AM by SirFatty | 6 comments »

I’ve always made my own zero clearance inserts, and on the old Craftsman table I used previously, it was a pain to make them correctly. With my new Porter-Cable saw, it looked to be even more painful. This time around, a purchased ZCI seems like the way to go. A quick search showed one manufacturer appearing multiple times in the search results: Leecraft. A couple blanks were purchased from, and fulfilled by, Woodcraft via Amazon. When received, I was surprised by how heavy an...

Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

06-27-2011 09:24 PM by Ryan Bruzan | 6 comments »

I picked up a nice, 12’ long piece of red oak S4S for ripping down into smaller stock. I needed 12’ lengths, but I also realized how much control I did not have if I tried to feed the board into my table saw from 11’ away from the blade. I didn’t think about handling and ripping it in my small shop. I mean, I have the length, but I did not want to have to crawl under the long boards to puzzle the ripping process together. After pondering the process for a moment for...

The Complete Guide To Sharpening by Leonard Lee, Taunton Press 1995 ($22.95 US/$32.95 CN)

02-28-2008 09:04 PM by Sir_Robert | 6 comments »

About the BookWhile Leonard Lee’s book on sharpening is nearly 14 years in print, it still ranks well above other texts on the topic. Mr. Lee’s strong attention to the science behind his sharpening methods leaves readers feeling confident about using what they’ve learned. This book will teach you just about everything—no, on second thought, make that EVERYTHING—about sharpening woodworking tools, kitchen knives, craft tools and anything else that has an edge. ...

Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

01-19-2010 12:20 AM by richgreer | 6 comments »

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

02-14-2011 04:35 AM by thiel | 6 comments »

I use a Grizzly 10 inch (T10010 I think..) wet grinder to sharpen my tools. It’s a barebones machine which approximates similar tools from tormek and jet, and I’ve found its performance just fine. As I get better and better at using my edge tools, I’ve needed to get better at sharpening them, so I’ve invested some time in getting my rig up to final form. Here are some things I’ve learned: —It’s worth it to invest in a jig to hold your chisel/ir...
