New table saw and CMS blades at Busy Bee - Canada Blue Torando.

11-12-2009 11:33 PM by Bob #2 | 8 comments »

A pleasant surprise at a very decent price at Busy Bee Tools.I have been thinking about a new general purpose blade for a couple of months and spotted this one at the trade show here about a week ago.The blade and teeth are reportedly from German technology and fabricated in China.I noticed right away that the carbide tips were longer and seemed marginally thicker than most thin kerf blades I had been looking at. I must measure my old one.They have an anti vibration laser kerf in the body...

Small sander that does a big job

Small sander that does a big job

02-27-2010 09:52 PM by Sawdust4Blood | 8 comments »

I bought one of these because I was looking for a detail sander that could get me into the corners of furniture projects. But since I make sawdust almost every weekend, I was looking for something that was going to last. I had looked around at a lot of other detail sanders and they all struck me as cheap flimsy things designed to be used on one or two projects then forgotten or thrown away. I also considered a couple of the multi-function tools for their utility but sanding was more important...

Ultimate Grad Present

Ultimate Grad Present

01-01-2012 03:42 AM by zindel | 8 comments »

Okay so my parents are quite wonderful let me just say that. I just graduated college with a degree in MIS and they bought me this planer as a graduation present! Anyways onto the review. So as a back story to backup my review i have a few friends who have the Dewalt 735 and another who has an older Delta couldn’t tell you the model. I have seen the results of these planers and they were all okay, the Delta gave a lot of snip but that is no surprise as it is older. The dewalt does pr...

Product: 024103 5-Inch by 8 Hole 180 Grit Premium Plus C Weight Paper Hook and Loop Discs, 25-PackRegular price: $11.52, or about 46ยข per disc. The picture is after 30-40 seconds of sanding poplar and about 50% of the grit is gone. The consolation is I only paid $4.05 for the box.

Bowl Making Machine

Bowl Making Machine

01-01-2012 08:56 PM by doug1980 | 8 comments »

I bought this lathe used 2 years ago from my neighbor who also turned bowls with it. It’s powerful and easy to use. It will turn up to 38” spindles and turn 15” bowls inboard and up to 20” bowls outboard. I have made about 100 bowls with it and the only issue was the cooling fan belt slipped off once, easy fix. The headstock and tailstock are aligned perfectly and it accepts all the popular accessories like other brands. It may not be a Jet or Nova, but it is buil...

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

11-16-2009 07:03 AM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

So as promised (in Knottscott's review of the Delta 35-7657), here’s my review of its 60-tooth cousin. The night Scott reviewed that blade, I noticed Tooliday had the 60-tooth version up for $25, plus $5 S/H. I had been looking at Freud blades that were about $20-30 more, so I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. I’ve been using a single 40-tooth blade for everything (came with the tablesaw I bought used of Craigslist), along with painters tape to keep the chippin...

A mobile base for Canadians

A mobile base for Canadians

07-04-2010 01:01 AM by swayze | 8 comments »

I picked up this mobile base a couple of weeks ago for my new Grizzly 513p bandsaw. It was on sale for 65% off the regualr price of $99.99 so I thought what do I have to lose and I didn’t expect much. But the base performs excellent on the 350lb saw. The only negative about it is that in order to operate the cams that lifts the base up so the casters can make contact requires a little help by slightly pushing upward on the saw. But still very easily managed. The base is easily move...

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

11-16-2009 07:26 PM by Sivers | 8 comments »

I thought this book was really neat. I love mechanical “things”. All the models in this are meant to be demonstrative of basic mechanical devices that make up the larger machines that are all around us. Cam Follower, Couplings, Scotch Yoke etc…. I am hoping my finished models will be “desk worthy” as I am an engineer and the others in my office would get a kick out of this. I have built a simple one and am partially through one of the more challenging ones. Th...

"Your Signature Here.." Branding Iron

"Your Signature Here.." Branding Iron

08-25-2011 08:39 PM by zindel | 8 comments »

For awhile now i have been thinking about getting a branding iron until i saw how much a custom one would cost. Well after a lot of emailing people and figuring out prices i was almost going to give up because i was not going to pay 100s of dollars just for a toy that i didn’t need. Then on amazon i saw one that you could email whatever your signature was to this company and they would make it you. So I shot them an email to see if what i had in mind would work and they said it would be...

Veritas Bevel Up Jointer Plane

Veritas Bevel Up Jointer Plane

11-21-2012 03:10 PM by jasondain | 8 comments »

Over the past month or so, I have been working on a Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo workbench (more on that in later posts). At this point, I’m in the home stretch flattening the top and I had bought this plane in anticipation of using it for flattening the top of the bench once it was ready. I have built other projects in the past where I could have used this but used my Bevel-up smoother for the task instead (I know, not technically for the purpose but it worked fine). I spent a few h...
