Earlex Spray Station 5000

Earlex Spray Station 5000

03-28-2008 06:59 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 43 comments »

To sum up, I thought the Earlex did a darn good job spraying pretty much everything I put in it, including oil-based poly, water-based finishes, lacquer, and latex paint. I would probably recommend purchasing some of the smaller tip sets though, since they will increase performance on the water-based stuff. The 5000 does lack some of the spray controls typically found in higher-priced 3 and 4-stage units, but sometimes those extra features are just unnecessary. I found the simplicity of the u...

Great value in a contractor saw

Great value in a contractor saw

11-02-2009 04:11 AM by Glenn | 43 comments »

I’ve been using an early 1980s-era Craftsman 9-inch portable table saw with a steel table and stamped steel extension wings. After deciding that I needed something a little more precise than this older saw, I was looking to upgrade and was attracted to the Bosch 4100-09 partly because of the reviews, but mostly because of the blade guard/riving knife it features. I wasn’t really wanting another portable saw, however, and was looking for something beefier instead. I discovered this...

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw -- Full Review

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw -- Full Review

03-28-2011 07:09 PM by Furnitude | 43 comments »

The Ridgid R4512 saw has features—including an integral lift/caster mechanism, a tool-less blade guard and riving knife, an accurate fence and good dust collection—on par with much more expensive saws. While it’s easy to get caught up in comparing tolerances, the most important thing to know about a table saw is whether it will do what you need it to do within your budget and space constraints. I generally make furniture and small items in my basement shop. I need a table saw that...

Well worth the money

Well worth the money

11-05-2009 03:39 AM by Joe | 43 comments »

I find this sander outstanding to use. I purchased this when I realized I would be sanding forever on all those little pieces that made up the two excavator I built. Very easy to use and changing belt to spindle is a snap. Just remember it has left handed threads. I have read on the internet that people had problems with the tracking on the belt. Sure, mine did not track straight right out of the box, but it took a total of 15 seconds for it to track dead straight. You set it once and that’s ...

Do not buy at this time, manufacturing error

Do not buy at this time, manufacturing error

03-12-2013 02:48 PM by asloanie | 43 comments »

I recently bought one of these, returned it, and now am about to return the replacement. The unit comes with a mounting platform and casters. They must have recently changed caster manufacturers as the new ones do not line up with the pre-drilled holes in the metal platform. Both units I got had this exact problem. If you want to use your own platform or drill new holes yourself, this still could be a usable system. Just an FYI. I would recommend opening the small box the caster...

Grizzly G0453 15" Planer

06-04-2009 08:18 AM by Don K. | 43 comments »

Well As I recently stated….I did some serious upgrades in the old shop in the last few weeks, bought a new cabinet saw, new band saw, new jointer and a new planer. This first review will be over the new G0453 15” planer. (actually my second review…the jointer was a few weeks ago) I did some serious thinking about which planer to buy….but decided to go with a new Grizzly since I have had such good luck with my Grizzly jointer. While I really wished I could have went ...

Review of the Nova Galaxi DVR 1644 Wood Lathe

Review of the Nova Galaxi DVR 1644 Wood Lathe

12-24-2015 07:25 PM by Jim Jakosh | 42 comments »

I received my new Nova Galaxi DVR 1644 wood lathe from Teknatool. This is a Beta Model … one of 20 and not yet on the market. It came assembled ( except for the legs) in one crate (525#) and was very well packed. I installed the 66” bed on my lathe station instead of using the legs that come with it because I have the layout of everything right there. It took just 2 adapter plates on either end to mount it . The crate warmed the barn for 2 days This is a very fine...

Grizzly G0771Z Hybrid Saw

Grizzly G0771Z Hybrid Saw

02-12-2017 02:43 AM by JRsgarage | 42 comments »

Well, I’ve had the saw for going on a month but have not been able to use it. The saw arrived safely and the driver kindly brought it into my garage…had to tip him(great attitude).The assembly went smoothly, nothing too difficult. I had to shim one of the wings; everything was in my acceptable tolerance. The fit and finish was ok in most areas. The wings were grinded differently than the main tabletop which looked a bit cheap but I figured I can live with that. Everythin...
