Have built a couple sets of cab’s with this as i cut on the foor,can’t man handle 4×8’s on the TS by my self any more. Rip and cross cuts good as on TS. Love this thing. Got it from Rockler by the way.

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Update: I’ve owned this sander now for over a year, and it has gotten a lot of use. It’s been a great tool with no problems, so I’ll leave the five stars in place. The original review follows: I haven’t had this sander long yet, so my 5 star rating is based ondesign and recent performance. After I have used it for a longerperiod of time, I’ll come back and update my rating if warranted. I really want to comment on two aspects of the sander design. First,t...

Project V2 Venturi Vacuum Press Kit

Project V2 Venturi Vacuum Press Kit

12-24-2013 06:29 AM by whit | 5 comments »

I couldn’t decide if this should be a project or a review. Technically, it’s both, I guess. The project – a vacuum press – is based on the V2 Venturi vacuum press kit (i.e. you need an air compressor) from http://www.joewoodworker.com. The Project Kit I bought the kit a while ago. Well . . . a few years ago. OK, it was 2006! I wanted to let it age before I put it together. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! The build is really simple...

Laguna Tools LT 16 3000 Series Bandsaw

I would really give this saw 4.8 Stars but that is not an option. The only reason for not giving it five stars is that I have trouble holding the table tilt knob while tightening the bolt that locks the trunnion with that other hand. I am 66 and have arthritis so you younger jocks might not have this same problem. I would prefer a larger wheel with an offset handle like those found on table saws for this function. Other that that I love this saw. I bought it used from a seller who told me it ...

Stanley Flatbase Spokeshave

Stanley Flatbase Spokeshave

05-24-2013 05:08 PM by Nugs | 5 comments »

One of my first woodworking projects was carving a canoe paddle, I didn’t want to spend too much on tools because I wasn’t sure if I would like the hobby. I picked up this spokeshave on Amazon for a reasonable price of $20. I’ve had a lot of problems with it but with some small modifications it was a pretty usable tool. My first issue was with it jamming up, no matter how thin I would set it, the shavings would jam it and I would have to take it apart to unclog it. My sol...

I love my planer, again for the price. Mine does have the 4” dust port so it must be a later version. I recently noticed that it is not planing a consistent thickness across the width of the board and I am getting inconsistent snipe, some times worse than others on the same board. It is going off to a service center tomorrow.

Precise Repeatability for Multiples

Precise Repeatability for Multiples

I am currently building a set of 6 Arts & Crafts chairs as designed by Kevin Rodel in FWW. I will be doing a project posting soon, but wanted to recommend a tool that really helped me on this job. In order to reduce individual fitting and trimming of all the joints, it is necessary to make mortises in the same place on each piece. With this jig, it’s easy to do. The tall back leg has 5 mortises, half of them angled. I was able to set up the jig, and place the mortises so the teno...

It's got rough spots but it works well.

It's got rough spots but it works well.

For the past 5 months I have been looking for a new jointer. When I first started woodworking 4 years ago (has it really been long?), I purchased a Mastercraft 6” Bench Jointer. While it has served me well, it only worked for shorter pieces and it seemed to tear out everything except soft wood. Given that I am now a commited woodworker for life, I decided I really needed to get a “real jointer”. I went to all of the woodworking shops in my area but I couldn’t really fi...

Hitachi Compressor - Nice for the Price

Hitachi Compressor - Nice for the Price

07-27-2009 09:50 PM by reggiek | 5 comments »

I just replaced my old pancake compressor ( A Porter Cable – a few gasps and then gave up the ghost – after about 9 years of very hard service) with this model from Hitachi. It was very reasonably priced even if not on sale!...and has more power and more capacity then my old model. So far it works great!....and I am very happy with the extra capacity. I use the mini compressor’s to blow off tools, work areas, projects and to run finish nailers, staplers, framing nailer...

Forrest Blade

My son bought this blade 13 years ago, and in addition to all the furniture projects in the home shop he is a contractor for helping build homes. This blade is his only blade, and was used on site to cut everything for four houses. After cutting some very dense 31/2” Oak, he says it must be time for it’s FIRST sharpen, and intends for no one but Forrest to do it. It still cuts softer wood like butter.Billyup
