Incredibly good saw.

Incredibly good saw.

I bought this saw on sale for only $19.99 well over one year ago.I bought it to replace a similar saw ( but not the same ) that I had before and which finally burn up after years of abuse.(I used to to do all my remodeling in my house).Even me, who “love” HF tools,I was hesitant to buy a saw for only $19.99 but after over one year of frequently using it I am delighted with it.I use it for all kind of different projects but mostly to take apart pallets made of pine , poplar and oa...

The best deal I ever got!

The best deal I ever got!

03-17-2008 10:38 PM by Moshe Eshel | 7 comments »

I was looking at lathes for almost two years before I purchased this one.I previously owned (still do) a JET Mini 1014 (non VS) and was very happy for it – except for the size limit – 10” is a little too small when you want to turn a platter or a salad bowl. However, money was a little tight and I sure couldn’t afford a Oneway or Vicmarc…Anyway I was checking out lathes and even found a chinese one selling for a decent price, but I was unsure of quality, living i...

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

12-12-2014 12:33 PM by NickyP | 7 comments »

I saved my pennies waiting for the annual 15% off Black Friday sale and bought this JET drill press from CPO Outlets through Amazon for $518.49. It was delivered to my house 10 days later: After opening the box I quickly discovered there were not allot of parts that needed to be assembled: I bought a mobile base about 2 months ago from Rockler on sale for $34.99 free shipping: As I went through the assembly process I would degrease and wax were needed: ...

Jet Wood lathe

Jet Wood lathe

Hi again friends, I have had 2 Performax mini wood lathes. Both of them had some good features, price, variable speed, gaurantee etc. I purchesd the original one from Menard’s in North Platte Ne. I burned out the motor on the first one. They sent another complete lathe, and a few weeks later, I was going to use it and it wouldn’t turn on. They again gave me a new one. Fantastic business to do business with! While I was in need of a lathe, I purched a new JET JWL-1220VS...

Jet 17" Floor Standing Drill Press

Jet 17" Floor Standing Drill Press

03-07-2010 05:29 PM by Jarrhead | 7 comments »

When I started wood working, a drill press was one of my first tool acquisitions. I bought a Delta 12 inch benchtop model, that has served me well, and continues to do so. Last year when I embarked on the “21st Century Workbench” project (see my project posts), I knew that the little Delta wasn’t going to be up to the task. It doesn’t have the necessary spindle travel to get through 3 inches of lumber, which was required for drilling the dog holes. There had been a...

THe Festool RAS 115 is a Wood Sculptor's Dream

THe Festool RAS 115 is a Wood Sculptor's Dream

03-08-2010 06:49 PM by Charles Brock | 7 comments »

Several years ago at the Festool IWF booth, I told one of the reps what type of work I do and he said you got to try the “Termite Tool!” Full of woodworker’s cynicism , I thought, Yeah! Just another grinder. I didn’t try it, so I continued to shape my rocking chair seats using a grinder with a carbide wheel attachment while turning my shop’s air into a dusty haze. My only alternative was to go outside on a windy day and let my neighbor deal with the dust. As usua...

Powerful Dust Collection with Some Work

Powerful Dust Collection with Some Work

01-30-2016 06:24 AM by Severian | 7 comments »

I installed a CV 1800 system a few months ago in my shop. I’m just a hobbyist, not a pro by any stretch, but I’m blessed to be able to own some nice tools. The CV takes a good amount of work to assemble and get the system running—it’s far from turnkey—but I rather enjoyed the process. The instructions were reasonably clear, and you can find YouTube videos too. The CV support was outstanding when I had questions and when one part needed to be replaced due to s...

Craftsman jointer

Craftsman jointer

06-12-2016 10:50 PM by Spoctor | 7 comments »

I work at Sears and had walked by this jointer many times, noting its $229 price tag. I walked by it again the other day and saw that it was being closed out at a fraction of that price. I jumped.It had been on display for a good while. The blade guard had been broken off and the spring lost. The push blocks were also missing, but those are easy to replace. The safety key was missing from the power switch. Fortunately, three of my other power tools have keys that fit it.This jointer weights 5...

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

03-09-2010 07:19 AM by Jay Neale III | 7 comments »

This will be short and to the point. I bought a set of four Bench Cookies from the Rockler in Arlington, Texas, this past Saturday. That evening I used them to support my new router table top clamped to my old router table top so I could use the old top as a template to rout out the opening for the plate. I hop that made sense. Anyway, the Bench Cookies worked GREAT! I expected them to work, but I was still surprised at how well they held my work piece in place for the entire operation. N...

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

04-10-2013 10:21 PM by JuanGatico | 7 comments »

Hi LJs! Since I live in Colombia it’s rather difficult and expensive purchasing books, DVDs and tools in general to be shipped this part of the continent. For that reason I tried some digital downloads, specifically Christopher Schwarz’ video Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes and Jim Tolpin’s The New Traditional Woodworker. Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench PlanesAfter waiting nearly an hour I started watching the video and what...
