Rockler Sure-Loc Miter Guage With Fence & Stop

03-17-2008 04:53 PM by DaveH | 6 comments »

Dead on accurate out of the box if your miter slots are parallel with the saw blade. Easy to assemble and adjust. Price paid: $101.49 ( included shipping ) Would I buy another: No, spend the extra money and get a better quality solution or build you own. I’m going to replace the fence with a shop built. Rockler Link Improvements needed:Option for a fence extension.Flip stop instead of a wood sliding stop.Drop in miter bar style instead of a bar style forcing you to slide...

Great saw well worth the money!!

09-05-2011 06:42 AM by SCABrown | 6 comments »

I’m starting over with my workshop and this is my First purchase for it. I ordered this saw back in June from my local Woodcraft, It arrived 3 weeks later in their store for me to pick up. The saw and rail came very well packaged and received no damage from UPS’s punishment. The manual is very nicely done and is easy to read. The action is like butter and glides effortlessly down the rail. You will cut the splinter strip on the guide rail on the first cut, but that is normal so do...

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

12-12-2014 12:33 PM by NickyP | 6 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: ...

Makita 10" Sliding Miter Saw

Makita 10" Sliding Miter Saw

05-30-2012 05:14 AM by DawsonWoodworking | 6 comments »

I have used this saw for a little over a year now, I have completed a few projects with it, but it doesn’t see daily service. I have used Dewalt, Hitachi, Ryobi, Porter Cable Saws previously. After reading several reviews, I was choosing between the Bosch, Makita & Festool, Accuracy is very good. Weight is very good, Ease of use is pretty good. The blade brake seems to be wearing out, very prematurely in my opinion. This saw doesn’t see heavy use, so I wouldn’t ...

Dust collector, Harbor Freight 2 HP, model 97869

10-28-2013 05:01 PM by ferstler | 6 comments »

I am going to post this comment, or something similar to it, elsewhere on this site to get the best chance of feedback. I am a 70-year-old retired worker but am now also a working artist who does wall-hanging collages made from enameled or stained wood pieces. I have items in a half-dozen galleries and outlets in this town and another town close by, and the income from the projects helps to supplement my retirement income. It also helps to keep my wife from harping about me needing to get ...

Here are the bits that I bought about three months ago for some up and coming projects. I like these bits becasue they came in a huge set, I belive 16, and it was only $25. They make flat bottomed holes, angled holes, and are just very nice. They do have there downside tough. They are very hard to use if not useing in a drill press, they tend to not want to start if your useing a drill. Some of them also have a slight wobble which is not so great, but most of them are perfect. They also tend ...

Good starter router, but could do better

Good starter router, but could do better

03-10-2010 05:13 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 6 comments »

As a beginning wood worker on a budget, I have opted for purchasing Ryobi products to fit the bill as the need arises. I’ve been mostly happy with this choice as I find it to be a pretty versatile router. I’ve had it for about a month now. The good:- it takes 1/2 or 1/4” router bits- variable speed that’s easy to adjust- comfortable- powerful enough. I’ve never had it bog down even when a ‘little’ too agressive- micro depth adjustment allows for mo...

Guinevere Sanding System Review

Guinevere Sanding System Review

04-25-2011 05:17 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 6 comments »

When turning bowls I have always been upset with the sanding that is required to remove the “rip outs” and the other soft areas. Well, I saw this tool online and checked it out. I purchased it last year and thought that I should add a review so other LJ had an idea as to it’s worth (MHO). As you can see in the picture it comes with a rounded head and a cylindrical head sanding attachment. Both are rubber bladders that when inflated hold the sanding piece in place. The...
