The DeWalt DWP611PK 1.25 HP Max Torque Variable Speed Compact Router

Well by now I’m sure you’ve many things about this router. Probably more good than bad. I can say without reservation all the good things are true.I bought it about a week ago (mail order) but have been sick and haven’t had a chance to use it until this weekend.The project I cut it’s teeth on is a white oak sofa table. So far I have only done round overs, slot cutting and running a trim bit. It has performed flawlessly! The variable speed is easily adjusted on the fly....

Wixey Saw Fence Digital Readout  - Installation review

Wixey Saw Fence Digital Readout - Installation review

02-18-2008 06:03 AM by sIKE | 7 comments »

I have really been wanting one of these and I got it for my birthday yesterday. Was excited and got out late this morning and got started on the install. The first picture shows everything that came in the box. Well almost everything, it was missing one of the sensor strips. So my simple two hour install telescoped out within the first 20 minutes. So after an 1:30 minute round trip to Woodcraft to exchange it out. I was able start the install again. Assembly is simple and straight forward, th...

This is a note to DynaBlue from the inventor: I read your review of the General Tools Mortise and Tenon Jig and wish to thank you for your expert review and analysis. If possible, I would like to be able to call DB and speak to him privately on some of the details, if you would please give me a way to call him.I am particularly interested because I am the inventor and patent holder of this tool, so I want you to know that your criticism is completely fair and accurate and, as the designer, bu...

Hey Everyone, Just got My Jet 1642 EVS pro 1 1/2 hp. Awesome. I will tell you the set up was easy, 1/2 hour at most, needed an extra set of hands to balance the legs while attatching the Way to them. Thank You Dann. It was my own fault, if I had read the directions I would have noticed that they will balace on their own if you do not attatch the feet first. In otherwords, Put it together first then lift the whole thing up and install the feet. Everything goes together very nicely. Fit ...

For a cheap box store hand saw I was very surprised at how well it cut

For a cheap box store hand saw I was very surprised at how well it cut

03-14-2012 07:12 PM by Dan | 7 comments »

I recently picked up a truck full of reclaimed barn wood that needed to be cleaned up and planed. I had a lot of thick boards and some long 10ft boards that were just to big or long to cut comfortably with my RAS. I figured it would be quickest and easiest to cut them with a handsaw. I was using one of my vintage Disston handsaws to do this until I hit a nail which really messed up my saw. Not wanting to risk damaging another one of my vintage saws I decided to just buy one of those new cheap...

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...

Earlex 5500 great for hobbyist or semi-pro

Earlex 5500 great for hobbyist or semi-pro

03-18-2012 08:56 PM by Kevin_S | 7 comments »

I definitely recommend the Earlex 5500. It’s a great sprayer. So far, I’ve used it to spray both shellac and polyurethane and it did a good job on both. I bought it so I could spray shellac on my latest project, but it was so easy to use that I also sprayed my polyurethane top coat with it. Cleanup is really easy, especially with the Teflon lined cup. One of my favorite features is the secure storage for the gun on the unit. I don’t have to look around for a good place to set the gun an...

After Market Table Saw Splitter, Shark Guard

After Market Table Saw Splitter, Shark Guard

08-15-2014 06:29 PM by woodshopmike | 7 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...

Couple annoying setup issues, but all in all... I'm pleased.

Couple annoying setup issues, but all in all... I'm pleased.

It cuts very nicely. Leaves a glass like finish, is quieter cutting than my old 6” Powermatic model 50, the depth of cut lever moves effortlessly, table and fence are flat as a pancake… bonus. I was a little concerned early on with vibration. I had started it before I had the fence assembly on just to be sure the motor/cutterhead alignment was good. The on/off switch post was vibrating considerably, but after the weight of the fence assembly went on it was steady as a rock. I will...
