Harbor Freight Dado set

Harbor Freight Dado set

12-16-2013 06:48 PM by MrRon | 40 comments »

I’m certain the purists will condemn me for using the name “Harbor Freight” in connection with woodworking tools, but like it or not, here it is. I don’t use a dado blade very often, so I couldn’t justify $200+ sets like those from Forrest. But when I do need one, I went with the cheapest set I could find. The HF set is 8” and cuts dados up to 7/8”. The teeth are C2 carbide and number 22 teeth. I was impressed by the size of the carbide. They look lik...

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

05-30-2014 02:36 PM by Billy E | 1 comment »

This review is for the 10-inch, 48-tooth, ultra thin kerf (5/64”) version of the TS2000 blade. I have used a number of different blades including cross cutting blades up to 96 tooth and ripping blades down to 24 tooth. Most are freud, some are dewalt,one delta, etc… This is my first Ridge Carbide blade. I got the 5/64” version because I am using a fairly underpowered Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I’ve always used thin kerf (3/32” or thereabout) with the sa...

Excellent beginer plane

Excellent beginer plane

03-09-2015 02:37 AM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

For a while i have been curious about the all hand plane movement. So i decided, I had to start somewhere, so i read a little them i jumped in. I ordered the 12-920 from Amazon for about $35. The unit came in perfect condition. The overall first impression is that the unit is well build and surprisingly heaving. Quick check and as suspected it did need to have bottom flatten and the blade seriously sharpen. That took a little bit of time but i have to say that is the first one i did so not be...

This is a serious jigsaw!

This is a serious jigsaw!

I just purchaced this saw from Amazon on my Prime membership because my wife wanted some arts and craft projects cut out. They were about 16” x 20” and are going to be painted to look like a Mason Jar. I used 5mm birch ply. I was able to cut two at a time and the saw didn’t even know it was cutting anything. However a 10mm thickness in a pretty tight inside radius was a little too much for the Bosch 20 tooth Xtra-clean blade. I turned it a nice blue oxide color. Oops. ...

Diablo Metal Blade

Diablo Metal Blade

10-07-2015 12:54 PM by EastCoast506 | 3 comments »

I recently came across a video while looking up the Diablo line of circular saw blades. A trick he found out by mistake was using the metal cutting blade in his circular saw, so I tried it. I found my cuts were much more precise with little to no tear out, even on plywoods. Great blades all around, I use them on all my tools.

I looked at this for a long time. I got it about a year ago and have used it on 2 projects. It does what it does very well. All I’ve done with it could have been done without it, but not as easy or accurate. Right out of the box I put a bit in a drill and mounted it to the lathe. I had to cut down the post to get the bit on center. That’s with the post bottomed out in the banjo. It’s made for chair makers. I’m not there yet, but it will do what I need. ...

Good alternative to the Festool TS55 REQ

Good alternative to the Festool TS55 REQ

02-09-2016 01:36 PM by TechTeacher04 | 5 comments »

I was asked if I would be interested in building sets for my districts Senior High Musical. The build required breaking down numerous sheets of 1/2 and 1/4” ply. Working alone with a small job saw would be extremely dangerous when cutting the 1/4” luan that is used to skin most of the pieces. A track saw became the safest option for breaking down the sheets accurately and quickly. I had narrowed my search to the Dewalt DWS520K, Festool 55 REQ and Makita SP6000K. The compatibility ...

The first part of this review is just focusing on the set up on the CRB 7 router jig attachment. Set up is pretty straightforward it’s not really that difficult to set up your router. I am using Ryobi router RE180Pl1G Plunge router. The only thing with this set up is they are assuming your router has the wing nuts for a straight edge already attached to your router, my router didn’t have them so I actually had to go to my local hardware store and buy some knobs. Now if you have...

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

04-27-2016 10:11 PM by Redoak49 | 4 comments »

I had added this Milwaukee M12 drill to my Christmas list this year. I had tried it at the store and it was a nice size. Thankfully, my wife got it for me and it came in a kit with the drill/driver, charger, two batteries and the Hackzall. The drill driver works well and has plenty of power and a good clutch on it. It is solidly built and feels good in my hand. It is now my go to drill/driver and is lighter than the 18V one that I have. The chuck works well and it is easy to tighten a...
