A good time is had by all

A good time is had by all

650 days ago by Earlextech | 4 comments »

I worked the WIA show this past weekend in Pasadena, Ca. showing the Earlex tools in a booth and also running a seminar titled “HVLP Spray finishing made simple” which was well attended by many of my woodworking friends, customers and newbies trying to figure things out. Overall the show was a success, the woodworking TV stars and authors had great attendance in the building next door to the trade show area. It would have been nice if everything could have been in the same buildin...

After a couple of years with the C10fl

After a couple of years with the C10fl

957 days ago by jeepers06 | 4 comments »

I have had my Hitachi for a couple of years. I have used it for ripping while building a huge deck on my house and also for various woodworking projects.I have noticed the Hitachi brand at lowes is now porter cable and brown. I bought my drill press there also, says Delta on mine and Porter cable on the new ones. I think Hitachi is juat a name (like sears) and these things are made on bid in China.I also only gave $300 for mine. I had coupon and the saw was on sale.I have actually been p...

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

648 days ago by Tennessee | 4 comments »

From reviews on this site of the Haltbar Sagen blades, I thought I might try out some for my Grizzly G0513.I ordered two 1/2” 101 Flexback series, 131.5” long, 4 TPI, and I also ordered two of their 201 Hardback series, a 1/2” 4TPI and a 3/8” 6TPI. I completed the order online, and in three days, two boxes appeared on my front porch, each containing one 201 series Haltbar, with the proper label on the side of the box describing the model, length, width, and TPI. In...

Custom made sanding belts for the band saw

Custom made sanding belts for the band saw

514 days ago by PatrickB | 4 comments »

I ordered these a week ago and love them. You can order them any length with many widths to choose from. I ordered 3 ea. in 1/4”, 3/8”, & 1/2” in varying grits and they are the cats meow. The only down side was it took a while for them to arrive, about two weeks. Remove the bearing guides and set the tension and away you go. I’ve used them on end grain, curves, tight areas, they fit just about any where. The main thing is have one of those sanding belt belt cleaner...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

1899 days ago by jonah | 4 comments »

My wife and I bought a house two years ago, and planned to redo the kitchen pretty extensively. I grew up doing construction projects with my step-father and am able to do framing, drywall, finish work, electrical, and very basic plumbing on my own. We ended up tearing it down to the studs and starting from scratch, and did 99% of the project ourselves. I realized before we started that I was going to need more power tools. I had a drill, jigsaw, circular saw, and hand tools, but had no sp...

Midi Lathe Duplicator Vega 8500 - Worth the price? maybe

Midi Lathe Duplicator Vega 8500 - Worth the price? maybe

640 days ago by Nick_R | 4 comments »

I have a delta midi lathe and have been using it for over a year now. I can get things done pretty quickly and have done quite a bit of turning, but one consistent problem has been duplication of pieces that is accurate… I have wanted to build a chess set and a duplicator is necessary. After much research I went with the Vega duplicator because it looked the most complete and easy to use. Not many knocks against it and most actually seems more than satisfied.. I ordered mine fr...

excellent customer service

excellent customer service

511 days ago by DAC | 4 comments »

I had some issues getting it not to orange peel and solved that then bubbles. I tlaked to Tom at the factory and he was more than helpful. We discussed tempuarte, drying times, and the type and brand of spray gun. As my Iwata is about 10 years old it is not up to doing the water based products. It is a gravity fed gun and built in the days when oil based is all you could get. I have 4 tip sizes. 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 all of which do a fine job on oil based products. Drying time is an issue,...

Finishing Wax

Finishing Wax

510 days ago by pjones46 | 4 comments »

For years I have been using a wax as the last coat over my finish and never really thought about brand until I made some tests. First let me say I have used just about every over-the-counter paste wax known to the retail marrket: Johnson Paste Wax, Butcher’s, Minwax, Liberon, Renaissance, BriWax, etc, etc. All seemed to do the job but while finishing a project for my wife, I decided to do a little test to see which one gave the highest sheen after steel wooling the finished varnish. I ...

Good starter table.

Good starter table.

2340 days ago by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got this router table as part of a combo with this router. My previous router table was all molded plastic and had a significant bow in the table making it useless. This table is nice for a starter table but it doesn’t have a lot of the high end features. The fence is very adjustable with the ability to move the out feed side independently and also slide the sides to cover the bit hole. There is a 2 1/2” dust extraction port on the back which I haven’t used because the ...
