Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

1666 days ago by Tim Dorcas | 42 comments »

I first saw a Laguna Bandsaw in 2006 at the Calgary Woodworking Show. Man was it impressive! It just oozed quality. And when they cut a burl veneer slice, it looked like it barely needed sanding. What can I say – I was hooked (I still have that veneer slice). However at the time I didn’t have the money for it and went on to purchase something else. I always kept that demo in mind. After trying for three years to get my bandsaw to accurately cut wood and spending a mini fortune ...

Excellent Quality, Anxiety Gone, Cost a Non-Factor

Excellent Quality, Anxiety Gone, Cost a Non-Factor

261 days ago by NickyP | 41 comments »

I just got back into wood working a little over a year ago and bought a very nice used Delta Contractor Saw. I had no issues with the power and attributes of a fine running machine. A fine running machine I operated for over a year without a blade guard (SHAME on me!) as my respect of the saw’s power was high and my fear was low on using this machine. I was ripping about a 12” wide board in half that was about a foot long. The wood rose up and kicked back, hitting me square in the...

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

1176 days ago by Carpintonto | 41 comments »

I’ve purchased this saw ‘cause I owned the past model. It was supposed to be a big improvement. Surprise!!!, the main table was broken at the back, right where the Allen screw holds the saw’s main axle!!!. I’ve sent it to the service center and they kindly replaced the table at no cost…’cause the saw was under warranty still. I’ve seen the saw had a problem. It wouldn’t stay vertical, I mean it wasn’t cross cutting vertical, there was at l...

Great saw, but not for the money

Great saw, but not for the money

450 days ago by Cole Tallerman | 41 comments »

So let me start off by saying this review is based on 6 months of hobbyist work and comparing to other saws on the market. Last summer, I had an accident with an old .113 table saw. My parents would not let me use another table saw unless I got a SawStop. So being 16 (not much of a budget) i went with the cheapest one; the contractor saw with 30” rails. (I ended up upgrading to cast iron wings). The good: The saw came perfectly aligned and packed beautifully with great directions....

A great forstner bit set from a big box store

A great forstner bit set from a big box store

738 days ago by bobasaurus | 41 comments »

I made a trip to Lowes and bought this 14-piece forstner bit set . I needed the larger sized bits for a project I’m working on, so I just bought the entire set to prevent future bit hunting. I also have a small Rockler 8-piece forstner set and a Rockler power bore bit set to compare with. These Porter Cable bits are much better than the Rockler forstners at removing chips due to the wide flutes that extend to the top (power bore bits are still the best at chip removal, though), so I ...

Harbor Freight / Central Machinery Oscillating Spindle Sander

Harbor Freight / Central Machinery Oscillating Spindle Sander

1545 days ago by FJPetruso | 41 comments »

I recently purchased a new Oscillating Spindle Sander for my small woodworking shop. Before making the purchase I checked out comparable models, The Harbor Freight Oscillating Spindle Sander & the Triton Oscillating Spindle Sander. For the type of use that I give a power tool this quality sander would work well. With the exception of the colors being reversed, the two machines are identicle. Both sanders have the same features & acessories. Naturally at $90 for the Harbor freight m...

Big Bang For Buck Belt Sharpener

Big Bang For Buck Belt Sharpener

544 days ago by HorizontalMike | 41 comments »

I had been toying with the idea of getting into Woodturning for some time and the opportunity presented itself, so I started some serious planning. One of the things that goes along with Woodturning is the ability to sharpen your own turning tools. At the time I did NOT own a mechanized sharpening machine/system and had to rely on manually sharpening all of my planes and chisels with the “Scary Sharp” sandpaper to stone methodology. Don’t get me wrong, that system works a...

The Full Potential of the R4512

The Full Potential of the R4512

382 days ago by aatwatch | 41 comments »

I have an R4512 with a MLCS cast-iron router table extension, Incra 32” TS-LS fence system, Incra 1000HD miter guage and 48 tooth WWII blade. I love this saw and have no complaints other than being underpowered at times. However, once everything is properly calibrated I would argue that this setup could perform as well as any comparable duty saws and it has made me very happy to own. The MLCS cast-iron extension bolted up easily with the supplied hardware. The middle bolt was tric...

Fellow lumberjocks I hate to post a bad review but this dovetail jig has taken the last of my Patience that I allocated for it :( I bought this last year after realizing I need a jig, well I am fed up with trying to fix an almost new jig after reading the instruction manual and setting it up accordingly I placed the wood in the holder and tightened the clamp and after 3 seconds SNAP!!!! the knobs and bushing holders were broke after calling grizzly and getting a new bag of knobs and nylon b...
