Grizzly Wet Grinder

Grizzly Wet Grinder

01-31-2014 10:01 PM by Matthew | 3 comments »

Wanted to do a quick review of the grizzly 10 inch wet grinder. I got the anniversary edition about a month ago, and have been very pleased with the results. Pros:Grinds, hones, and polishes wellVery happy with the polishing leather wheelVery good and repeatable results Cons:Jig is hard to square up, but is still useable Cannot flatten or polish blade backs unlike the tormek.Angle jig can be confusing at firstCould be better at catching water off wheel sides Overall, I would recommen...

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

11-10-2011 04:42 PM by WoodworkGuy | 3 comments »

My wife has been interested in woodworking for awhile, but didn’t want to mess with the “big machines,” but was interested in scroll sawing. The DeWalt and Hawk units were too expensive for a “trial” period, so we looked for a moderately-priced unit. Reading the great reviews on LJ led us to take a chance on the P-C PCB370SS. Fortunately, we were lucky and got a good one. It does a great job with a little vibration and I agree the dust removal and attached...

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

04-01-2009 02:57 PM by littlecope | 3 comments »

It being April Fool’s Day, I couldn’t resist reviewing this old dandy! The restaurant I worked at in 1999 was housed in an 1800’s built brick factory building. My Parents say that when they were young it had been a meat packing and processing plant and in the basement there were tracks and hooks for transporting sides of beef and what not. Also in the basement was a corner that was devoted to a small carpenter’s shop and it was there that I found this baby collecting d...

Outstanding chest hinges from Nathan's Forge

Outstanding chest hinges from Nathan's Forge

02-02-2014 12:52 AM by mpmitche | 3 comments »

I recently completed a six board chest and needed a nice set of hinges. Being disappointed with what I could find at the local retail outlets I looked around the internet and was pleased to find Nathan’s Forge. He customized the hinges to fit the 5/4 boards I used, delivered them quickly, and provide great looking matching screws for mounting. He even included a complete set of two lengths of screws. The detail of the hinges is great with the top edges chamfered nicely. The pair ma...

Inspiring Aspirations

Inspiring Aspirations

07-17-2011 11:45 PM by lysdexic | 3 comments »

I just finished “A Cabinetmaker’s Notebook” by James Krenov. This was his first book and published 35 years ago in 1976. I chose to read it because many of the reviews consider it a classic, he is well known personality in woodworking, and I like his understated but elegant style. Other than seeing Krenov style hand planes and his quotes as lumberjock signatures, I really didn’t know much about him. Well, his tome was quite enjoyable but it is a departure from the o...

Glad I Bought This Sanding Detailer

Glad I Bought This Sanding Detailer

02-04-2014 01:47 AM by Pie | 3 comments »

The Sanding Detailer is ideal for finishing those hard to reach areas. The abrasive belt can be indexed. The Sanding Detailer is spring loaded to put tension on the abrasive belt. After the abrasive belt is used up, simply compress the tool and replace the abrasive belt with a fresh one. They are color coded for easy identification of grit. So my wife and I walk into the local WoodCraft store for some scroll saw blades.Since I scrol saw and was looking for some small sanding files. Hea...

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

11-16-2011 11:55 PM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

These Dewalt Biscuits fit snugly into the slot compared to other brands I have used. In the dozens of tubes of Porter Cable biscuits I have used, they are always a little loose. That is fine for most work, but these Dewalt biscuits are better. Because the fit is so good, it actually aligns the edges for you. This is very helpful when doing glue-ups for tabletops. I realized how good the fit was when I mistakenly put biscuits in the slots on both sides of the joint. When I realized I had...

General 15” Wood Bandsaw

General 15” Wood Bandsaw

02-29-2008 04:00 PM by toyguy | 3 comments »

Without a doubt, the most used/loved machine in my shop is my old reliable General 15 inch bandsaw. This particular saw is an older tool inherited from my Dad. It was manufactured in 1970 in DrummondVille, Que, Canada. Model number of this saw is the 490 and it is still manufactured today, a testimonial to its quality. This is an original General product; not to be confused with the now available General International products that are manufactured off shore. Like a lot of the tool manufactur...

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

04-06-2009 11:56 PM by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 3 comments »

As I get more and more into the model making side of wood-working I find I need to do some quick sanding and holding the ROS while trying to sand a small piece was getting aggravating. So we stopped at the Grizzly showroom in Muncy, PA. They had both this sander and the smaller 4×36 belt sander. Needless to say the smaller one was out of stock and looked a little small and light for my needs, plus the G1014Z came with a stand. I was forced to wait 5 days before even unpacking it ...
