First on the Block to Get the New Plane

First on the Block to Get the New Plane

1981 days ago by bobdurnell | 45 comments »

After seeing the advertisement in the latest Woodcraft magazine offering the new Wood River planes I couldn’t wait to see them. The article said that they resemble the LN planes and were more affordable. After calling my local Woodcraft store I was told that it would be a while before they would have the planes in the store. Yesterday 2/17/09 I went to check them out and I believe that they are what was said in the ad.I have a no.5, no.2, no.1, and a low angle adjustable block by LN....

A great deal

A great deal

561 days ago by Purrmaster | 45 comments »

I’ve been using this blade for a few months now. It’s lived in my miter saw most of that time and I just tried it out on the table saw for rip cuts. I’ve been very pleased with this blade, overall. The titanium nitride coating does seem to reduce friction and give a somewhat cleaner cut. The blade is nice and sharp out of the box. It cut more easily and cleanly the Kobalt blades I had been using in the miter saw. And the rip cuts it did were good too. The saw didn&#...

You don't get what you paid for!

You don't get what you paid for!

1550 days ago by Binn | 45 comments »

I purchased this Panel saw in November 09 because I have a Laguna HD band saw already. So based on buying previus tools of Laguna I thought they made all good machinery. Well, not so!. When putting this saw together and installing the extended table and tighting the allen set screws it begin to warp the main body of saw so I had to back off, weird uh? I could not understand what was going on with this. Then the main support arm had issues such as you slide the table back and forth you could f...

Festool RO 125  sander and CT 26 dust extractor

Festool RO 125 sander and CT 26 dust extractor

165 days ago by Sandra | 45 comments »

Woodworking background – Hobbyist Bought from: Lee Valley Paid: $1126.00 for both components Pros:Automatic start of dust extractor Long lasting abrasives Amazing dust control Reasonable noise level Variable speed and two sanding modes Cons: None other than price Without a doubt, this is a luxury purchase for a hobbyist like myself. Previous to this sander, I had been using a Bosch ROS which worked just fine. The dust control however was lousy. I work out of...

Powermatic PM2000 5hp tablesaw

Powermatic PM2000 5hp tablesaw

827 days ago by hickeymad | 45 comments »

Splurged on the new table saw a few months ago and wanted to post a quick review to help others out there make a wise decision if they are in the market as well. I have no photo so instead you all get to admire my beautiful 2-year old daughter Caitlin. She is happier than am I about the machine by the looks of her. Saw arrived in two packages. The heaviest of which was REALLY heavy. It took 5 guys to muscle this thing into my basement and I’m pretty sure it is never going to leave th...

No Longer In Search Of... Stanley 750 SW Chisels!

No Longer In Search Of... Stanley 750 SW Chisels!

1204 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 45 comments »

Stanley 750 “SW” Chisels Not the easiest things to purchase by any stretch (see In Search of blog entry here – http://lumberjocks.com/Smitty_Cabinetshop/blog/22223), but now these tools are in hand. If this review is entertaining, great. If you’re interested in what to expect from a purchase of Stanley SW 750s, continue reading. If it’s a side-by-side comparison with Lie-Nielsen, Ashley-Iles or 2 Cherries that the reader is after, frustration awaits. I’ll start with a disclaimer t...

DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

2295 days ago by tooldad | 44 comments »

I have had the opportunity to use about 4 different planers. I owned a Ryobi 12.5” for about a year and returned it because rollers wouldn’t work, They bought a Ridgid and it lasted about 3 months, same problem (Ryobi, Ridgid, and Milwaukee are same corp) Finally I bucked up and bought Dewalt after seeing this at the wood show. However I am not the average weekend woodworker being a shop teacher so minimum duty tools just dont’ cut it for me. I also had a Delta 12.5”...

Hammer K3 Winner Review

Hammer K3 Winner Review

723 days ago by Howardh | 44 comments »

I noticed no one had posted a review about this saw so it’s time! Anyone who is interested in getting a SS ICS should consider this saw first. For a short time I had a Laguna Platinum series and was not pleased at all. Numerous problems, wobble in the arbor, not good. Sold it, saved my pennies and after a long process, decided on the Hammer. What a great decision! I have had it about 4 months and I smile every time I walk past it in the garage. Those Austrians have it going on. S...

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

1396 days ago by gene | 44 comments »

I am very pleased with the 2hp HF. I caught it on sale for $151.99. I could not be any happier with the big difference in suction power. This was well worth the price. Knowing what I know now, the jet unit was a waste of my time and money. This unit is twice as good! God bless

Quick Release Clamps:  Jorgensen vs. Harbor Freight

Quick Release Clamps: Jorgensen vs. Harbor Freight

332 days ago by SirFatty | 44 comments »

I recently purchased some Harbor Freight clamps that are still on sale, “12 clamps, “18 clamps and “36 clamps (the picture shows the 36” as yellow, but they are blue in the store). Decided to go with these because, quite honestly, they look almost exactly like Jorgensen clamps. The main difference, besides the cost, is the plastic/rubberized grip versus the Jorgensen’s hardwood. Although the castings are a bit rough, there’s no doubt where the Harbor F...
