Jet JFM-5 Initial Assemble and Use Review

Jet JFM-5 Initial Assemble and Use Review

01-02-2009 04:40 AM by jcecil | 5 comments »

Like many others I recently purchased the Jet floor mortiser from CPO for 499-150 in Jet Rebates, so first off it was a fantastic deal that drove me to the tool. The tool was drop shipped directly from Jet. The tool arrived in two boxes that were on a pallat and shrink wrapped with little to no damage more than a small knick on the cardboard, so A+ to Jet and the freight company for packing and shipping. One box contains the stand and weighs in the 40 lbs neighborhood, then comes the oth...

Newest Partner in My Woodworking Escapade...

Newest Partner in My Woodworking Escapade...

03-23-2010 02:02 AM by grub32 | 5 comments »

Hi all…I recently added this to my new arsenal of woodworking machines. Begins with a post that I read either here or on another forum about the old days and using lay-a-way. I saw this saw go on sale at woodcraft for the 999 price and I was excited and sad at the same time. I knew that I needed to upgrade because I didn’t really have what I needed to do what I am now looking to do. So, I was in the local woodcraft having a chat with the owner and we started talking about the ban...

Foredom TH 1/3 hp flex shaft tool?

Foredom TH 1/3 hp flex shaft tool?

11-28-2013 02:08 AM by PatrickB | 5 comments »

I love this tool. I use it quit a bit for a variety of odd jobs but mostly for sanding and some filing. Right out of the box I was impressed, the motor feels substantial in my hand, beefy even. Everything was well packaged and no damage evident. I also purchased the right angle grinder kit at the same time. I have some sanding drums for it too. I do not have a hanger for this but I would highly recommend getting the hanger although it’s not an absolute. I set on my bench top sometimes ...

Abranet Sanding Mesh

Abranet Sanding Mesh

03-25-2010 09:42 PM by Darell | 5 comments »

I thought I’d try this Abranet Sanding Mesh to sand my pen blanks. Sanding has always been the hated chore of my penmaking. The Abranet Sanding Mesh has made this task much easier. I cut a 1” strip off each of 5 grits and after 15 pens I’m still using the same pieces and they don’t show any signs of wearing out yet. This stuff is much, much easier to use that the old sandpaper strips I had before. I won’t be using the old stuff any more. Wish I’d boug...

Work well, annoying to adjust

Work well, annoying to adjust

06-25-2012 02:47 PM by lumberjoe | 5 comments »

I used two of these for my cross cut sled I just made. At 5.99 each, they looked like a good value. I was unable to find many reviews on line, so I figured I would give them a shot. The goodThey can be clamped down pretty tight to hold the piece in placeThey are inexpensive (~6.00)Everything turns well on the bolt. No stripping The BadI don’t like the design. These have two locking mechanisms. There is a knurled knob at the bottom that locks the bolt to the track. After locked to ...

Great little nailer

Great little nailer

01-23-2008 03:10 AM by Roger Strautman | 5 comments »

This was a micro nailer that I bought in hopes of fastening trim on the very end of the piece without splitting and not just any trim but oak and it worked great. This 23 gauge nailer is very light weight and can shoot 1/2”- 1” headless pins so small that if you stain the piece you have to look very hard to even see the small spot of the head. The pins are sold in packets of 2600 form $7-$12. The only downfall that I have found with this gun is that it has no safety so one has to ...

VXB 4" Lazy Susan Bearing huge discount

Hey guys, This is mainly for you guys out there in the USA, but you never know. As you may know, US ball-bearing supplier VXB has been in the market for a very long time and sells all kinds of bearings to the whole world. The great thing about them is that despite being a huge company they also sell to individuals. And now comes the woodworkers’ part: for a limited time, they’re offering this 4” LS bearing for $0.99. Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...

Review of Steel City Saw after a year

Review of Steel City Saw after a year

01-19-2015 03:59 PM by _Whitey | 5 comments »

Okay, Having owned my Steel City 35911G saw for about a year now I thought I would do a little follow-up. First off, I am happy with this saw. The fit and finish are acceptable, not too beefy so as to make it cumbersome, and not to chinsy to make it rickety, if that makes any sense. If you are a woodworker who likes everything to weigh as much as a WWII era tank, you may want to look elsewhere. The Granite definitely makes this saw heavy, but the rest of the saw is practical. The situation...
