Good Drill Press for $70

Good Drill Press for $70

01-22-2015 12:03 AM by edwood1975 | 5 comments »

If your on a budget then this is the press for you here are some pros and cons… Pros:1. Light is a great feature especially when trying to position a brad point on your workpiece2 Small enough to fit under a bench at 23” high3 Cast iron base and shelf makes it extremely sturdy but a con appears when trying to move and position the 6×6” shelf it’s very heavy4. Overall I like it Cons:1. Hard to position wood on shelf as its too small( that’s why I buil...

Real affordable quality

Real affordable quality

01-28-2008 11:37 AM by Rob McCune | 5 comments »

This machine has me hooked on Jet tools. I had really thought high quality cost a lot more. Granted it doesn’t have some of the features of it’s PowerMatic cousin (they are made by the same company). Power: More than enough. I haven’t been able to slow it down facing 6” wide boards. Reliability: Rock solid, the only issue I have had is with dust collection. As long as you have a dust collector hooked up there is no issue, but if you try to use just the chip ...

My Jet bandsaw is coming on 4 years old. I know because I bought it at the IWF in 2004.It has the “Carter-style” roller guides.The lower guides adjust on a cam to get close to the blade.There are a number of folks I let use my saw but I will accept responsibility for not loosening the adjusting nut. In any case, the cam broke.First call to Jet got me a very nice, but unknowledgeable young lady who passed me over to a guy in service who said that he would fax me a parts list. (Nowh...

Ian Kirby's "The Way to Woodwork" 3 DVD set is a big disappointment

Ian Kirby's "The Way to Woodwork" 3 DVD set is a big disappointment

02-22-2012 10:52 PM by dckchk | 5 comments »

I purchased the three DVD set “The Way to Woodwork” for use as a partial “instruction manual” for my grandsons to use with a full workshop that I have recently provided them. After reviewing all three videos in this set I must say I am very disappointed. I found the universal “critical path” description to be a sensible way to describe a basic woodworking methodology. However, as it is laid out in these DVD’s, it is not successfully developed. Fur...

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Improved switch design, great dust collection

02-24-2012 01:24 AM by nwbusa | 5 comments »

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

10-06-2011 05:39 PM by Toolz | 5 comments »

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.
