great little workhorse for the money

I got this planer a few months ago and since i got it i have been giving it a lot of work. i have probably run close to 200 bf through this planer and i am still on my first set of knives. which is good considering some of the woods i’ve put through it including hickory which is a demon to any blade. its is a nice little powerhouse though. it works wonderfully and has the power to take the full 1/16” off of any board with ease. it is very heavy duty too. i have stood on it before ...

Jet 708480K JPS-30 Quality Hybrid Saw for under $800

Jet 708480K JPS-30: 10-Inch ProShop Table saw 1-3/4-Horsepower 30-Inch Rip fence With Steel Wings I have been woodworking for about 2 years now and felt it was time to spend the necessary dough to improve accuracy, cuts, rips, and broaden techniques. I spent a lot of time researching table saws based off cost, features, etc. I decided on this Jet for a handful of reasons: •Cost: $799.00 through Amazon: Amazon allows you to finance certain large ticket items for 12 months same as cash....

Pretty much what I was looking for.

Pretty much what I was looking for.

04-17-2013 03:18 AM by muleskinner | 6 comments »

I wanted to add a foot switch to a scroll saw I just bought. The pedal types seemed better suited to a sitting position (I was thinking sewing machine). I will be standing so I looked for a low profile that had the pivot at the top. I ordered this one ($16.84) and received it yesterday. It’s available in three configurations: switch w/6ft pigtail; switch w/6ft cord and piggyback 15amp/120v plug; switch alone. I ordered the last option because I wanted a little bit longer cord and ...

Good Resource for Creative Box Makers

Good Resource for Creative Box Makers

11-30-2009 10:42 PM by MsDebbieP | 6 comments »

Nov 30/09 If you’ve ever thought, “If you’ve seen one box, you’ve seen them all”, then think again! This book takes boxes to a whole new level. On one hand you have some extraordinary pieces of art in for the form of boxes (and more) and on the other hand it begins by taking you on a journey of man’s evolution and the search for enlightenment. It is said that what makes us human is the ability to envision the possibilities. The craftsmen behind the...

Must Read for the Galoot in all of us

I had been looking to pick this book and while I was at the Sacramento Woodworking show I ordered one from the Lee Valley booth. They had a nice discount on the book and the shipping was free. Chris Schwarz is one of my favorite woodworking authors. He is the editor for Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine. He also has an excellent blog that covers all forms of furnature building, workbench and hand tool topics. He also has produced a number of excellent handplane, tool and ...

Chain Hoist-Little helper

03-14-2010 06:39 AM by 308Gap | 6 comments »

I picked up this hoist to lift a jointer out of my truck. It worked great in both directions, it has a built in brake. The jointer I lifted is 260 lbs. I got on also for a grand total of 520 lbs. .......... it still worked smooth and the roof didnt cave in. I spread the weight across 3 garage joists and put 2×4 braces on both sides of the truck. ok ok so theres a little redneck in my family LOL. This hoist will work great for picking up shop equipment when needed. No need for 4 budd...

Penn State Industries Customer Service

Penn State Industries Customer Service

03-24-2016 11:06 PM by Matthew | 6 comments »

I felt the need to write a review of Penn State Industries customer service department. I have owned a DC2000-Y single stage dust collector for about 5 years now. This review is in no way a reflection of the quality of the collector, which I think is fantastic. Never had any problems with the machine itself. Recently, I decided it was time to upgrade from the cloth bag filters, to a canister type filter with the plastics lower bags. After a cursory search online on many sources, and ...

Lie-Nielsen 40-1/2 Scrub Plane

Lie-Nielsen 40-1/2 Scrub Plane

I’ve been using a heavily cambered #5 as a scrub. It was ok. I looked for a 40-1/2 on eBay for awhile but got tired of waiting for a deal so I got the LN version. I’ve been happy with it so far. I kinda prefer it to a bench plane with a cambered iron.

Norton Ceramic Sandpaper disks

Norton Ceramic Sandpaper disks

11-14-2016 08:47 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I’ve (unfortunately) used a lot of sanding disks in my history of wood working. One thing that makes sanding a little more pleasurable is having good abrasives. I’ve found that the best abrasive is the Norton Ceramic disks. Coming in Second, right behind these would be the 3M-brand purple disks. I believe these purple ones are either ceramic or a ceramic blend abrasive. At any rate, the ceramic disks do cut more aggressively, so you often have to choose a grit step of two up fr...
