Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

2401 days ago by Tony Z | 4 comments »

I’ve had this saw for almost a year now and I love it. I got a great deal on it also. It retails for about $1100 but it went on sale for $1000 and then Sears had a deal for 20% off that and then combined that with no interest for a year. I couldn’t pass it up. I ended up getting it for $800! The saw comes with a Biesemeyer fence which is one of the best features. When I first used the saw with this fence, I could have cried. The Biesemeyer fence works like butter. I don’t k...

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

1859 days ago by ShannonRogers | 4 comments »

I took a trip up to Chester County, PA this weekend to take a class with Chuck Bender’s school, The Acanthus Workshop. Chuck goes by the handle Acanthuscarver here on LJ. What a treat! I have been woodworking now for 7 years and hardly do I think of myself as an expert, but I admit to being a little dubious as to how much I would get out of a fundamentals I class. Because the focus was on hand tools, I was more optimistic because I am pretty new to the way of the Schwarz having R...

Seeing’s how the previous forum got a little off topic, I started a new one to update on the PJ882 purchase.The original post: “After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing.After receiving my joint...

Almost a really good clamp

Almost a really good clamp

87 days ago by mramseyISU | 4 comments »

I recieved these clamps as part of a Mini Clamp-It set with two of the assembly squares which work really well and 4 of these clamps. I’ve had them for a little over a year and up until recently I really liked them. About a month back I was using them and as I tightened them down I noticed that the threads on the clamp were all bottomed out but they weren’t tight. That was funny I thought and then I noticed that the head was coming off of all of them. The flaw on these clamps is t...

Pretty good compressor

Pretty good compressor

599 days ago by Tedstor | 4 comments »

!!!!Update 4/17/13. SO I’ve been using this product for several months now. Its been flawless. I’ve used it for nailers, inflation, clean-up, and impact wrenches. It runs them all well. I originally mentioned that I disliked the orientation of the gauges. Senco positioned them facing inboard, rather than outboard. However, that hasn’t proved to be an issue in reality. That said, I take-back that gripe. Anyway, I just thought I’d re-affirm my admiration of this machine ...

Quality plane for years to come.

Quality plane for years to come.

1704 days ago by Rick | 4 comments »

In my book Veritas builds high quality planes with a dash of new and innovative thinking for a reasonable price. It’s not a cheap price but if you’re looking to be happy with a plane in every way, then this is the first brand in the price range. In my opinion. I use this plane for everything except for smoothing a wide board. This will handle end grain and even the side grain of birds eye maple. However, you need to get your plane iron sharp. I suggest the A2 steel. You s...

(See below for details)Woodcarving Magic by Bjarne Jespersen This book has me scratching my head.
