Mast-r-lift with Incra magnalock plates

Mast-r-lift with Incra magnalock plates

03-11-2015 03:36 PM by philba | 12 comments »

This lift is “sorta” branded by Incra but it’s basically the JessEm Mast-R-Lift II with the Incra MagnaLock insert plates. I am assuming this is made and shipped by JessEm. I purchased it through the Incremental Tools web site. In some ways this JessEm/Incra partnership is a tale of two companies (apologies to Mr Dickens). While all the Incra products I have bought have had superb engineering and packaging, the JessEm kind of came up a bit short. I also installed a ne...

BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

06-18-2015 07:13 PM by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

The BOSCH GCM12SD dual bevel glide saw is a remarkable tool that takes accuracy and ease of use to a new level. Now that I’ve completely let the cat out of the bag that I like this tool, lets see why. The most obvious features are the upfront controls and the super smooooooth axial glide that BOSCH has engineered and patented. These upfront controls not only allow for rotating the table, but also make it possible to tilt the blade left to right. Yes, that means you no longer have ...

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

08-07-2015 08:39 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 2 comments »

I am a fan of Laguna tools. I called my salesman and it was delivered 7days later. Everything was clean, well painted, and it assembled OK. I was going to convert a HF 2hp, add a Dust Deputy and have to rig a system. Cost of Laguna shipped without the filter $825 vs. build your own $500 plus my time. This has been a good decision for me and I highly recommend this unit for a shop that doesn’t have an extra 220 service. This unit runs on a 20 amp 110service. The motor is made in Taiwan ...

Another Harbor Freight Gem

Another Harbor Freight Gem

10-08-2015 01:27 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 3 comments »

I picked this hoist up today to install my new Grizzly G0572 Air Filter (see my other review).This little dandy made it a piece of cake to install my air filter by myself. What was really nice about it is the overalllength when fully raised. It what short enough to get the air filter up to the ceiling. My regular chain fall was way to long. With the 20% coupon I paid about $35. If you are going to hang anything like a air filter pick one up and save your back.

Bought it less then a year ago. It had to sit in the box for a while while I transferred to a new base. Finally got to set it up which was easy till the test. The blade was off. The side closer to the fence was cutting high. By looking at the instructions I figured it would be easy to adjust. Wrong! The cap screws were frozen. Three of them turned no problem but I couldn’t get the rest to budge. Since it is still under warranty (at the time of writing this) I contacted Grizzly for help....

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

02-09-2016 07:02 PM by Kelly | 3 comments »

This shouldn’t be a review of a piece of exercise equipment, its very nature, during use, requires me to treat it as such, in order to get across its behavior characteristics in the shop. I have several four inch flex hoses in my shop. Only this one returns to its original, retracted form. It is probable this will be the only one my shop will ever see, even if it fails and has to be replaced. PRO: Because it retracts to its original length, I don’t have to cut it for runs, t...

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

02-24-2016 11:18 AM by OakHill | 1 comment »

Great attachment. If you need to cut small or thin pieces of wood or plastic you really need this Dremel accessory in your tool inventory. I have only tried it on about 6-7 cuts thus far. I found the best results when the work piece is clamped and in using two hands, one to hold the tool and the other hand to guide the Mini Saw works the best. Perhaps with practice this method will change. Just as with any other power saw, let the tool do the cutting, not the muscles in your arm. Well ...

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

03-28-2016 03:33 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

To give Ryobi more than 2 star rating is pretty good, considering I am not a huge fan of most of their products. So for a plunge router, this is a good router to have whether you are a novice or a pro.It has plenty of power to do any job you need it to do. easy controls for speed changes. the on off switch is with in thumb reach, the plunge mechanism is nice and smooth. quickly locks and unlocks, and easy to do so with both hands on the router,, ergonomically it is very comfortable in the ...

I upgraded my old mid 50s Delta, it had some issues So I ordered this Saw from CPO, the Mobile base arrived in a big box with no packing at all, both the wheel locks were broken, I thought jeez hope the saw comes in better shape. And it did saw was packed very well in three boxes also the riser was included in its own box with all its access, at no charge it was included so that was nice.The saw was fairly easy to set up a earlier poster complained about the motor being hard to hang this ...

Back in January at the woodworking show in Indianapolis I purchased this Earlex 5500 spray station. LJs very own Eaerlextech was there giving demos, and they had a special package price on the unit, plus a cleaning kit and 1.5mm needle. I’d been thinking about it a long time, so I jumped on it. I also ordered the non-lined spray cup for use with alcohol and oil based finishes. For my first project, I chose to spray shellac. If you are not an experienced sprayer, shellac is a good...
