SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw (ICS31230: 3 hp, 1 phase, 230 V, 13 A)

06-01-2010 02:46 AM by stevenmadden | 54 comments »

I purchased this table saw in early April 2010 and it arrived in early-mid May 2010. The delay, I found out later, was due to the fact that SawStop was making a transition to the new, upgraded industrial cabinet saw. Anyway, when the saw arrived, I was pleased to find out that SawStop had upgraded me to the new dust collection shroud, blade guard, and lock down throat plate for free. There have been several very detailed reviews of the SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw here at LumberJocks, ...

Triton Upgrades Their Above Table Micro-Adjuster Worm Gear

Triton Upgrades Their Above Table Micro-Adjuster Worm Gear

03-08-2011 02:42 AM by HorizontalMike | 25 comments »

I have had my Triton 3 1/4hp router since last June 2010 and did not get to use it much until the last couple of months. I mounted this router on my TS extension and drilled the appropriate hole in the cast iron router extension and was good to go. The lifting mechanism worked well at first and then began to slip and eventually failed to lift, though adjustments could still be made when lowering via the above-table micro-adjuster. I called HTC-Triton (HTC are the new owners) in Michigan ...

DMT's Magna-Disc Sharpening System honing system

DMT's Magna-Disc Sharpening System honing system

12-12-2011 03:19 AM by Dave | 21 comments »

I have a worksharp 3000. {review of worksharp 3000} I use it every time I am in the shop. It is great for touch-up on a chisel and your right back to work. Because I hone more than anything else, I was in need to replace my 1000 and 3600 grits. If you get the replacements from Worksharp it can get pricey. The 1000 is a dollar and the 3600 is about five bucks. So I found DMT’s Magna-Disc Sharpening System for about 50 bucks from amazon. I received it and followed the directions in the b...

Even Better With A Few Modifications

Even Better With A Few Modifications

10-21-2014 09:38 PM by OSU55 | 7 comments »

I’ve had one of these for about 2-1/2 years. Typical of Lee Valley / Veritas tools, everything’s great. You can read all about adjustments, available blades, and the rest in the manual from their website. The tool provides excellent results, but does have a learning curve, and there are a couple of things that make it an even better tool. Initially I ended up with an overly aggressive cut. It would dig in and stop, spin around, sometimes feeling like a slot car on a wiggly piece of track ...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

08-05-2011 04:58 PM by mafe | 20 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

Great Cutting Board Finish!

Great Cutting Board Finish!

03-25-2011 03:01 PM by zindel | 30 comments »

Last summer I was working on a cutting board my girlfriend and looked deeply into what i could use to finish it. I considered the normal oil and wax, however that needs to be reapplied after some time of use. I then stumbled upon this salad bowl finish by General Finishes and all i can say is WOW! The cutting board i made for her last summer still looks great and fully water proof. You can take a look for yourself: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44940 This is after almost daily use for...

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

02-18-2010 12:47 AM by GaryK | 50 comments »

Does your arm get tired cranking your router up and down in your router lift? Especially when you hve to crank it all the way up to change a bit? Well, how about no cranking at all and go from all the way down to all the way up in ONE SECOND! Well the new PRL V2 from Woodpeckers does just that. Install the spring loaded handle, give it quarter turn and you can pull or push the router to where ever you want it. Just stop it when you are close and use the micro adjustment wheel to reac...

Fantastic lumber mill in Western Massachusetts

Fantastic lumber mill in Western Massachusetts

05-22-2012 04:22 PM by lumberjoe | 38 comments »

As I am new to woodworking, I found the transition from crappy big box lumber to quality hardwoods very intimidating. Buying planed dimensional lumber by the liner foot is a much different experience than buying rough cut lumber by the board foot. While the internet is a great resource for many things, I could not find good information on saw mills close to me. Since this location is about 15 minutes away from me, I figured I would take a chance. 1 – The owner is VERY knowledgeable. ...

RT1000XL Router Table - Excellent Product

RT1000XL Router Table - Excellent Product

01-02-2012 10:29 AM by David Grimes | 14 comments »

I’ve had this table for almost a year, so for those of you yearning for a review where the tags aren’t still hanging, this is one of them. As you can see from my photos, I have added an MCLS Daisy Pin Router to it. The table does not come with the pin router. The only modifications I have made are adding 7” to the base to suit my height preference. I knew I was going to do this when ordered, so I told the builder to attach the wheels knowing that I would transfer them ...
