Fabricating iGaging DRO for 15" Planer

Fabricating iGaging DRO for 15" Planer

834 days ago by rawdawgs50 | 5 comments »

I wanted my planer to have digitized measuring but did not want to spend a couple hundred doing this. I recently purchased a Digital Read Out …DRO…from iGaging. I got it on amazon for $33.50 plus free shipping. When I received the unit, the lcd screen protector was cracked. The LCD protector is actually glass. I contacted iGaging and they responded very fast to my email, and after a few questions they shipped out another unit the next business day. Even though I live in Florid...

SmartHinge - The new premium box hinge

SmartHinge - The new premium box hinge

961 days ago by RogerBean | 12 comments »

Hinging a box project is one of the most troublesome and intimidating parts of box making. But, there is a really easy way. The SmartHinge is the best looking, easiest to install premium brass box hinge available. Emphasis on easy. SmartHinge is the latest entry into the premium box hinge inventory. These hinges are the brainchild of Andrew Crawford and Rolls Royce engineer Clive Jarman. They are solid brass, precision machined “side-rail” style hinges highly polished to a mirror fini...

Rudd Lacquer Sprays Well,  Nice Satin Finish

Rudd Lacquer Sprays Well, Nice Satin Finish

22 days ago by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

My local paint store quit carrying Valspar Pre-cat lacquer. Their replacement product is Rudd Duracat-V 550 voc pre-cat lacquer. It is billed as a vinyl, non-yellowing lacquer. I had the chance to use it on a recent project, and it compares favorably with Valspar, Sherwin Williams, and Magnalac. This lacquer is milky white in the can, compared to the yellow color of lacquers I have used in the past. I used the satin sheen, which looked like a hand rubbed finish after one coat. I sanded ...

harbour frieght drill press table attachment

harbour frieght drill press table attachment

1370 days ago by ajb | 32 comments »

i was in the market for a drill press table for my new Delta/Rockwell drill press. I was going to make one out of scrap, but after factoring the cost of t-track and clamps this seemed like a decent $20.00 solution. It came out of the box and went directly on no problems.I used it to counter bore the boards for an Adirondack chair that is in process. It umm, sat on my drill press really well and held the stops where they were supposed too and allowed me to speed right through all my drilling.I...

RAPIDAIR Compressed Air Piping System

RAPIDAIR Compressed Air Piping System

1090 days ago by redryder | 9 comments »

If you like compressed air plumbed into your shop, this might be for you. I saw the Rapidair compressed air piping system advertised in Woodcraft as a new product and thought it sounded interesting. I like and need to use compressed air in my woodshop for nail guns, air tools and cleaning. I have been working on a remodel and expansion to my shop and I was going to put in compressed air anyway so I thought I would give this a try. The Woodcraft price I paid was $139.99. Y...

Excellent Track Saw At A Great Price

Excellent Track Saw At A Great Price

164 days ago by jonah | 20 comments »

The Scheppach Track Saw is sold under many brands, including Scheppach, Grizzly, Woodstar, and several others. All are identical. What is different, at least in my case, is the price. Grizzly sells the saw by itself for ~$180, or as a part of a kit for $245. The Grizzly kit comes with a 55” rail and some accessories. In the US, the Scheppach saw is imported by the Colovos Company, a Chicago-based company. I’ll detail my contact with the company later in the review. I purchas...

Harbor freight 2hp dust collector....

Harbor freight 2hp dust collector....

1354 days ago by njcraftsman | 25 comments »

A Year ago when I was building my shop, I was shopping around for a dust collector to be the heart of my system. I looked at general, jet, grizzly etc. But then I read several really postive reviews on the HF 2hp model. I had a coupon for 169.00 for it so I figured why not. Let me tell you this thing is at least the equal of all of those other’s! I actually got a chance to examine a jet, and a grizzly….and they are almost identical.(makes you wonder if there not made in the same ...

Great new spray gun

Great new spray gun

1497 days ago by sawblade1 | 10 comments »

Last week I received my new spray gun from woodcraft and was very pleased with the quality out of the box it had a good weight to it but not to heavy, it came with a cleaning kit, extra filters, and all accessories for adjusting and removing nozzles and tips from the gun. But where this gun excelled at was at spraying after testing with water I decided to try spraying a water based clear cote to my surprise no cloud of over spray like you get with other HVLP guns and very little and do I ...

Couldn't figure out how to make them so I bought them

Couldn't figure out how to make them so I bought them

673 days ago by lumberjoe | 16 comments »

Since the Ridgid R5412 is such a popular saw, I figured I would review these. They are available everywhere online – woodcraft, Amazon, rockler, etc. Woodcraft has them in the store as well. Because of the design of this saw’s throat insert, it’s really hard to make your own. After seeing how these are crafted, I don’t think I could safely make one. LikesBoth of these are very well made. The instructions included are clear, and I don’t think they are outrageo...

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

1197 days ago by thiel | 9 comments »

NOTE:—Photos and Videos at the Bottom... scroll down!— Where I used to live, there was a so called “incredible” hardwood supplier who had a showroom of almost 800 square feet in which to display oak, cherry, poplar, and walnut. Occasionally, they’d get some additional “special” species. Oh, and EVERYTHING was S2S. Boy was I clueless! When I moved to my current town two years ago, I had a heckuva time locating a hardwood dealer. I searched on...
