Photo lights for better posts

08-16-2010 01:02 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

Not strictly speaking a woodwork tool these are LED lighting units to use in video or stills photography but as I’m continually taking pics for Project posts and blogs I thought it appropriate to post them here. They are from a site based in the UK Channel islands (post free in UK) but I’m not sure they will post worldwide. The URL should you want to check them out is here I bought a pair. One goes either side of my Canon Powerhot A460. They do stack on one another quite sol...

Ryobi 12 in. Drill Press

Ryobi 12 in. Drill Press

09-22-2011 03:15 AM by NewEnglandsWoodWorks | 6 comments »

Last year I a ryobi 12 in. drill press for $120 dollars. I have to say I am very happy with it and it has not let me down yet. I do recommend buying this 12 in model with changing the speed by hand and not the model with lever controlled speed for 60 dollars. It doesn’t take much work to open the cover and change the pulleys. specifications: laser Variable Speed by changing belts 1/4 hp motor Tilting table light Assembly for the drill press was very simple and I...

Solid value 8" jointer

Solid value 8" jointer

05-02-2013 08:15 AM by Ottacat | 6 comments »

Up here in Canada we have the BusyBee chain and their house brand is Craftex. Their equipment is almost identical to Grizzly and this particular jointer is almost identical to the Grizzly G0490. This jointer most likely comes from the same factory as it seems identical in every respect save for the power switch mount. Given I live in a city with a BusyBee location I was able to get the jointer delivered quicker and cheaper than buying the Grizzly. Many other vendors sell almost identical l...

Average Marking Gauge

Average Marking Gauge

01-23-2008 05:17 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I bought this marking gauge, because I thought it was better deal than the Tite-Mark. I was really disappointed with the the Micro-Adjustment on the Veritas. It requires you to use both hands to adjust the gauge. The instructions even tell you that you have to use both hands. Once adjusted the gauge works well and is accurate. If you want to buy Veritas, I suggest buying their standard marking gauge and save a few more bucks.

Delta  40-690 20" scroll saw

Delta 40-690 20" scroll saw

02-07-2012 04:38 AM by RetiredCoastie | 6 comments »

I was lucky enough to get this saw while Woodcraft’s had it on sale for $349.00 last week. It was delivered today and I stoped everything I was doing and put it together. After reading reviews that dinged it for some problems I inspected it carefully. One of the issues was the attach screws for the light. I inspected the screws and then the threads in the saw housing. I found that the first few threads were non existant and the screws were just a bit to short and had no bite. I bought l...

Makita RT0700C Roumer (Router/Trimmer)

Makita RT0700C Roumer (Router/Trimmer)

12-26-2012 09:22 AM by Bradley Anderson | 6 comments »

So this is my first power tool review, so I will be doing on my Christmas gift I got which was the Makita RT0700C router (Picture 1). On first looks the router looks to be a cross between a trimmer and fixed base router. The router looks and feels to be very well built with an aluminium base and main body. The top of the motor is plastic with the power lead come out of the side, which makes it easy to turn upside down and change bits over. The motor on this tool is a 710 watt electronic va...

Delta did it right for this drill press

Delta did it right for this drill press

01-23-2008 06:15 AM by GaryK | 6 comments »

This heavy-duty 16-1/2-inch drill press from Delta will do the job. The 3/4-horsepower motor that can be wired for either 115 or 230 volts. It gives you an deep plunge length of 4-7/8 inches. Chuck holds up to a 5/8-inch-diameter bit. Solid cast-iron construction and a 3-1/8-inch column The table rotates, 45 degrees each way for drilling angles.On of my favorite features is the depth stop. Instead of screwing it up and down the shaft it hasa quick release button to dis-engage ...

Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig

Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig

12-26-2012 02:17 PM by AJswoodshop | 6 comments »

A few people asked me to do a review on my dovetail jig, so I thought I would do a review of my Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig. It’s a amazing jig, I’ve used it a few times and it is very handy to have. Positives--Includes the 4210 half blind template, and the 4212 through dovetail template. Each template works just how it should and I’m very happy with the results. -The straight bit and dovetail bit (1/2’’ shank) are included with the jig and they are very ni...

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

05-16-2011 01:20 AM by TechRedneck | 6 comments »

Being a weekend woodworker (some evenings too) my time is important. Most of the joinery I’ve done is the basic stuff.. Biscuits, dadoes, M&T and pocket hole. I wanted a system to make some nice jewelry boxes for my grandchildren and step up my work a notch without spending a ton of money on a bunch of dovetail jigs, and making a bunch of box joint jigs that take up room in the shop. The Incra system interested me. I watched the videos and thought the concept was interesting fr...
