Powertec BD6900 sander - Safety Warning!

Powertec BD6900 sander - Safety Warning!

10-16-2014 04:12 PM by Tennessee | 6 comments »

I’ve owned this sander for about two years, and I bought the second table which to me made it nice. Today I was sanding the outside perimeter of a bandsaw jewelry box, a fairly big one, maybe four lbs. before cutting the drawers.I had a catch on the sander. We all have them, the belt catches the work, it drives down into the table, we chide ourselves, and go on. Not today. When the catch happened, it hit the table and the whole table sheared off the sander. I also had my shop va...

A little rough around the edges but a great tool

A little rough around the edges but a great tool

02-20-2014 01:31 AM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I must start this of by saying that I really would like to give this 4.5 stars but that’s not available here. I set this up on my old grinder and this week I bought a new Rikon grinder from Woodcraft so I mounted that to my base. It does take some time to set these bases up but it’s not hard at all. The two tool rests are made from heavy welded steel and the two bases are an extruded aluminum and is nothing if not stout. The only issue that I had with it is the flat grinding rest,...

Very Easy Flutes

Very Easy Flutes

03-14-2011 11:49 PM by 747DRVR | 6 comments »

I needed to make 8 fluted columns for a small kitchen island I was making and remembered reading about a flute spacing jig here on LJs.The jig was delivered very quickly and I found it to be of the highest quality.It is made of THICK aluminum.What the jig does is help you set the fence on your router table for perfectly spaced flutes every time.You do not need to measure and there is no math involved.The instructions say to practice on a piece of scrap wood.The scrap piece and all 8 columns c...

Acurate, Fast and Easy.

10-12-2012 04:34 PM by philphoto | 6 comments »

I have needed a way to set up my router fence and router bits in relationship to the fence. It seemed like the reversible glue joint bit, or lock miter bit were such great promise, only to have so much time wasted trying to hit the seemingly impossible perfect alignment of the joint parts. I had more success with the reversible glue joint bits, but still I would end up sanding to get it “right” and not really happy with the end result. Then I read a “Fine WoodworkingR...

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event - Indy

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event - Indy

10-19-2009 02:55 AM by Walnut_Weasel | 6 comments »

This Saturday (10/17/09) I attended the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Indianapolis at the Herron School of Art. I think it is worth mentioning right off the bat is that I am extremely new to woodworking and that alone may bias my opinions stated below. I had two main reason for attending this event: 1) Learn as much as possible about everything available, and 2) Get my hands on some Lie-Nielsen equipment to see what it is like to use high quality tools. Admission to the event was free! I...

Reliable, versatile trim router kit

Reliable, versatile trim router kit

02-08-2010 03:27 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 6 comments »

I’ve been using this model of trim router in a commercial cabinet shop which produces over 50 finished cabinets a week, dozens of plastic laminate countertops, and massive reception desks. These are the only trim routers we have in the shop and they get abused all week long. Several of them have been in service over 4 years without any major repairs (brush replacements and a fan here and there). I bought this kit off Ebay used for my home shop. The underscribe base is great for people w...

Grizzly 5, shipping 1

Grizzly 5, shipping 1

02-23-2013 10:29 AM by tmelch | 6 comments »

I bought a GO490X 8” jointer from Grizzly about 4 months ago. Been wanting to do a review, so here’s my scorecard on the whole experience (10 being the best, 1 the worst) with some comments for each: Ordering: 9 Over the phone, very easy. Shipping: 1 I picked up at the UPS Freight terminal. It was dropped in shipping. Sheared and bent cast pieces and bolts, parts falling out. See the photos. Bad news, it must have gotten away from somebody, huh? Glad I wasn’t around. Customer s...

Rockler Trim Router Table

Rockler Trim Router Table

02-24-2014 08:47 PM by redryder | 6 comments »

I purchased this Trim Router Table last December. For me it has proved more useful than I expected. I can set it up pretty much anywhere I want. In the shop, outside or anywhere with power. It tears down as fast as it goes up. Two clamps and dust collection if you want. I am not a fan of hard edges on wood so I have used it mostly but not exclusively with a roundover bit attached. It is meant for smaller projects and not something like large panels. I compare it to my small band...
