Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

11-28-2012 05:51 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is a nice edgeguide that will expand the capabilities of your router. The fence is split, so you can slide it open for edge cuts, or keep it closed for inboard cuts. The guide locks down securely, and makes accurate cuts. It comes with everything you need, including knobs with springs to mount the guide to your router. The DW 618 uses the thicker rods, but it comes with some thinner rods for other Dewalt routers. This guide is helpful for cutting strip inlays, fluted columns, d...

Harbor Freight Portable pocket hole jig

Harbor Freight Portable pocket hole jig

06-22-2009 06:20 AM by Pete_Jud | 5 comments »

I picked up a Kreg single pocket hole jig a couple of weeks ago for 20 bucks and have fallen in love with the concept. Even “Norm” uses the pocket screws for doing face frames. I saw that Harbor Freight had a 2 hole jig that looked like it worked like the Kreg 2 hole jig for a whole lot less money. I thought I would give it a try. I had a 20 percent off any single item coupon and it cost me 54 bucks instead of 99 bucks for the kreg. The Kit came with the step drill, lock col...

A great portable saw

A great portable saw

01-15-2008 03:09 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I purchased the TS2400LS in late December 2006. I needed a powerful and feature laden portable table saw for my workshop. I reviewed other portable saws including: Bosch 4000-09 Dewalt 774 I did not review the Makita 2704X1 it was not available at that time. I decided on the Ridgid for several reasons:- the non-pneumatic tires make for a more stable base- T- tracks in the table top- beveled top edge allowing the miter to slide easily- the slots in the fence allows jigs to be easil...

50 inch Digital Camera Tripod for $6.99 plus free shipping on eBay

50 inch Digital Camera Tripod for $6.99 plus free shipping on eBay

06-23-2009 05:13 PM by Dan'um Style | 5 comments »

Hey Guys ! Great deal on a tripod for your digital cameras. Very light duty, but holds the camera very still. Below is a camera test slide show … I took 16 photos in a dark room around 10:30 at night. Photos are each at a different combinations of camera settings, alternating between types of flash and focus settings. With the tripod I took 16 photos in a row, without blur. Granted the photos suck, but the tripod held the camera very steady....link to ebay seller...link to an auct...

I bought this lathe last February. Since then I have turned a bunch of pens and a few bowls/vessels.The lathe is great. I haven’t had any trouble with it bogging down.

I have the lathe on the stand also sold by Delta fitted with Rockler Workbench Casters which make moving it around the garage when not in use a br...

Fabricating iGaging DRO for 15" Planer

Fabricating iGaging DRO for 15" Planer

01-10-2012 09:27 PM by rawdawgs50 | 5 comments »

I wanted my planer to have digitized measuring but did not want to spend a couple hundred doing this. I recently purchased a Digital Read Out …DRO…from iGaging. I got it on amazon for $33.50 plus free shipping. When I received the unit, the lcd screen protector was cracked. The LCD protector is actually glass. I contacted iGaging and they responded very fast to my email, and after a few questions they shipped out another unit the next business day. Even though I live in Florid...

Incredibly good blades.

Incredibly good blades.

10-27-2013 10:35 AM by b2rtch | 5 comments »

The set that I bought is not exactly the same than the one on the picture , as I have one carbide tipped blade in my set. I bought this set at HD well over one year ago to use with the Hf reciprocating saw that I review today also. I bought HF reciprocating saw blades in the past and IMO they are pure junk so I decided to buy better blades. I found this set at HD and at first I was hesitant to buy the set because the price was on the high side for me but I finally bought it and today I ...

Craftsman Digital Torpedo Level (part #948295)

Craftsman Digital Torpedo Level (part #948295)

04-20-2011 09:05 AM by David Grimes | 5 comments »

Got this today at the local Sears store. Price was $34.99. Two (2) AAA batteries required and are not included. It comes in a nice zippered case. Warranty is one year. The unit is plastic (not necessarily fragile, but not a Sherman tank), so it will need to be treated like a multimeter, a moisture meter, a thermal leak detector, or your high dollar stud finder. Stated accuracy is +/- 0.1 degree. The unit also has bubble tubes, but after using this instrument digitally, I think mostly ...

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: ...

Workbenches: From Design & Theory to Construction & Use...everything it's cracked up to be

Workbenches: From Design & Theory to Construction & Use...everything it's cracked up to be

01-16-2008 05:19 AM by Tomcat1066 | 5 comments »

When I first looked at this book, it was being touted at the end-all, be-all book of workbenches. Now, in all honesty, I don’t know about that. However, I do know that it is one of the most essential books out there for designing a workbench. Schwarz details what he feels are the essential requirements for a workbench based on the type of work one does. For example, a power tool only woodworker can get away with an old door on a couple of saw horses. But for those of us who use h...
