BeadLOCK system

BeadLOCK system

02-29-2008 12:51 AM by jerry118 | 8 comments »

The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the gui...

You can make your SketchUp model dance

You can make your SketchUp model dance

I just got this a few days ago and I love it already. That being said I should probably start with a description before I get questions about how many horsepower this router has or why the sander has a blue light on it. This is a navigation device that is used for 3D graphics programs. I have seen people at work use similar devices but they actually do CAD for a living. I only do SketchUp for fun but this device is amazing. When you move the knob it is exactly like you are moving the objec...

I have to agree

I have to agree

I just received my Grizzly $140 router table and its all I could ask for after having tried to make my own router table and ending up with a bowed/warped tabletop with no fence. The black powder coated lets and braces were stuck to the paper inserts meant to keep the pieces apart, but I think that is a minor complaint given the value of the overall package. Once put together, I now have a fully functional router table with fence and insert plate. Assembly was very easy. Although it lo...

a big time saver

a big time saver

I bought this sander a year ago and wish I had purchased one years ago. this machine saves hours worth of hand sanding. the only problem I have with it is the feed belt tracking. I have to adjust it after a few hours of use but it is a simple chore to readjust

Small gripe about the grip.

Small gripe about the grip.

07-06-2011 11:21 PM by cam1297 | 8 comments »

I held out for a long time before I dropped the $50 to buy the Gorilla Gripper. It says it will grip and carry sheet goods from 3/8 to 1 1/8 inch thick. I could not get it to hold and carry 1/2 inch thick drywall without it sliding off. It was also difficult to adjust the gripping faces to hold the sheets. I was trying to carry the new ultra light drywall. It was easier to carry the panels myself than it was with the gorilla gripper. On the website, it shows the gripper being used to ca...

Zona Razor Saws - Complete Set from 14 to 52 TPI plus 4-in-1 and Alum. Miter Set

Zona Razor Saws - Complete Set from 14 to 52 TPI plus 4-in-1 and Alum. Miter Set

07-08-2011 09:13 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

I got the 8” dovetail saw first. I liked it, so got the 4-in-1 and the Deluxe Saw and Miter set next. Again, I was impressed. so much so that I recently purchased the rest of them from 14 TPI to 52 TPI. I should be set for awhile on small razor saws. These feel good to hold and use in my chub hands. They are very sharp, cut quickly and extremely cleanly. They are pretty much disposable (the blades can’t be replaced), but I am certain they will last me and my little projects ...

Clean flat bottom cuts

Clean flat bottom cuts

07-27-2013 11:13 PM by twc | 8 comments »

I am always looking for new more efficient ways to complete my projects. Lately I have been doing a lot of shaker style doors with stub-tenon and groove joinery. That’s where this blade comes in. It makes super clean cuts with perfectly flat bottoms. On their website it is shown cutting tenon shoulders in a single pass. I have not done anything bigger then a stub tenon but I think it would excel at larger tenons as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to c...

Steel City 1HP dust collector

Steel City 1HP dust collector

07-30-2008 01:03 AM by kaferhaus | 8 comments »

Just bought this yesterday at the local Woodcraft (good folks here) With the exception of the the four bolts that hold the blower assy to the frame, assembly was rather uneventful. After assembly I immediately put the collector to use attached to my table saw and it seemed to work “ok”, not great. Even though I was using a zero clearance insert, a good amount of dust managed to escape from every nook and cranny from the cabinet. The collection only seems to be marginally b...

Kreg's new AutoMaxx 6" Bench Klamps

Kreg's new AutoMaxx 6" Bench Klamps

09-18-2014 03:47 AM by timbertailor | 8 comments »

If you are already a proud owner of an assembly table with some type of extruded aluminium track solution, then keep reading. I recently decided to build an assembly table and was looking for some new clamps to accompany my table. I found a product presentation on YouTube and decided to give them a try. First, they are very powerful. The first thing I had to do once I had them installed on the table using a dual purpose track (1 3/4” x 1/2”) was to turn down the clamping for...

Excellent Spray Gun at a Reasonable Price

Excellent Spray Gun at a Reasonable Price

05-09-2018 09:35 PM by Rich | 8 comments »

I was looking around for a gravity gun for my older Fuji Q4. The siphon gun that came with it performs well, but I wanted something that I could use when spraying smaller projects. The prices of around $300 for a Fuji or Apollo gun were higher than I wanted to pay. Given the number of less expensive HVLP systems out there, I hoped I could find one that sold the gun separately, and maybe they do, but I didn’t see any options for that on their web sites. I was close to giving up and...
