Viking Re-Saw Blade 105" x 1/2" 3 TPI (Timberwolf)

Viking Re-Saw Blade 105" x 1/2" 3 TPI (Timberwolf)

10-17-2011 06:05 AM by David Grimes | 5 comments »

We all know that most of the time the blades that come with anything new are usually pretty sad. The blade that came with my Ridgid was not so bad at all. But as soon as I installed the Grizzly 6” riser block and the 105” blade they sent with it was when I found out what a bad saw blade was like… truly unusable. I began to search for a better blade. My intention was to obtain a 1/2” blade that can handle everyday chores, but could step up and do some nice re-sawin...

Not so impressive.

Not so impressive.

I was warned. I was warned every time I went into Woodcraft. Don’t buy Groz! I’ve seen it everywhere online. I’m here to tell you, they are on to something when they say don’t buy Groz. The Groz isn’t a terrible plane, but it isn’t a very good one either. This is actually the only plane I ever received brand new. Every other plane I have is an old Millers Falls or an old Stanley. Out of the box it does not impress. The metalwork is haphazard and I would not...

Fellow Jocks, Most of you probably have heard of the Center Saver system. For those of you who have not, its a great tool system for bowl/platter turning that lets you “save” or core out the inside of your bowl blanks to make smaller blanks from the same blank of wood instead of just creating tons of shavings. I recently found some “free” wood on craigslist and it turned out to be a huge norway maple tree that someone had taken down and saved the 8 ft trunk secti...

Well I guess you get what you pay for. AT $16 one shouldn’t complain much but placed and a some what light cabinet you would think that they would work just a little better than they do. I got them because that would fit my application but I didn’t expect them to be as bad as they are. I can barely move the router table with them installed. I think that they are just torquing under and rubbing but the way they are made there isn’t much that could be done . Time to re-th...

Very nice saw for the price

Very nice saw for the price

This is a well made, low cost handsaw that I use for cutting joinery. I think it was a little over $30 at Woodcraft. The handle is beech and the top is brass, the blade is rigid and very sharp. I am new to the world of handsaws other than the ripsaws sold at the big box stores so this was a big step up for me. I think this brand is worth looking into for future purchases.

Hi All, ‘Picked up this 734 dewalt last week at Lowes. They had just dropped the price down to $399. I know you can get it for less at other stores on line but the shippng is outrageous so…. I have used other people’s planers….and this 734 is the best yet. It is a three knife system and gives a very smooth surface but the best feature is it’s 4 post hold down on the blades. The knife also has a a lock.. I plane short boards due to the size of my shop….w...

Works on Miter Saws and Biscuit Joiners

Works on Miter Saws and Biscuit Joiners

08-17-2012 05:05 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

Great product!Helps corral the dust at the miter saw (2-1/4” hose on a 12” Dewalt compound miter).This switch completely changed the performance of my Dewalt biscuit joiner. Previously, the joiner would clog with sawdust, which required disassembly to clear. Also the chips would fly in your face. Now the vacuum is convienent to use, and I never see a single chip when biscuit joining. I use the small flexible shop vac hose from Woodcraft for the biscuit joiner.It works great.

Great miter saw stand, if you can't have yours set up all the time.

I bought this Ryobi Miter Saw stand a few months ago and I love it. The picture shows it set up, but the legs will fold in and you can carry it around or for storage. I don’t have enough room to have a saw set up all the time and I have to set my saw up outside to cut for now. For the first time use, you have to attach the cross “sleds” or feet if you will, then attach the saw and the feet to the cross bars. It’s best to tilt the front towards you and then let the wei...

Earlex SS77 Steam Generator

Earlex SS77 Steam Generator

01-17-2013 07:01 PM by Jeff Waggoner | 5 comments »

We bought the Earlex Steam Generator at WIA this year and I could not be happier. This was our first experience with steam bending and it was nice to have something that just worked straight out of the box with no hassle and little setup. I made a steam box out of 6” PVC and used the supplied connector. We were up and running in about 30 minutes. We still have a lot to learn about bending wood as you can see here Steambending Fail! and Steambending Success! I would like to point out that non...

Wixey WR525 Remote Digital Readout

This is a great addition for your drill press. I first came across the wixey digital readout in an article in Woodsmith December 2008 No. 180 issue, and saved it in my drill press file. Then after agonizing over set ups for months I finally decided to buy the unit. The article does provide some basic ideas to attach components to you drill press. I have had it for several years and it has worked great. The only problem I had was operator error! The battery drains if you forget to...
