I originally picked this up last fall at Rockler, at a significant discount from the $84.99 MSRP (I believe I got it for $49.99). At the time, I didn’t have a table saw with a standard miter slot, so I was only able to use this on my router table for routing the end of pieces. While it worked just fine for that task, I held off judgment until getting a table saw so that I could use this for its main intended purpose. A couple weeks ago I got a new (to me) Unisaw and was finally abl...

Improved spray paint?

Improved spray paint?

10-25-2011 01:55 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 2 comments »

Oh yes it is! There are more colors and more coverage per can! The paint seems to come out in greater volume so be ready for a faster spray pattern. Finally, the name of the color is on the can; instead matching the cap color! (bit of a pet peeve of mine with spray paint manufacturers) Nothing too fancy, just some basic improvements to simple products that are headed in the right direction.

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

03-13-2012 06:37 AM by DHS | 6 comments »

I purchased a sanding block for the first time yesterday. I had taken my mother to lunch on Sunday afternoon and then to reward myself for this good deed I visited the local Rockler Woodworking store and browsed the discount racks. I bought some sanding disks, a quart of Titebond III, some space balls, and then just for the heck of it, I purchased a rubber sanding block for $3.99. What a wonderful device. I don’t know why I’ve never used one before. Perhaps it was my abrasive high-school...

Great ROS

Great ROS

08-24-2012 11:12 PM by PittsburghTim | 7 comments »

I purchased this sander over six months ago and am certain that it’s the best ROS that I have ever used. It’s much easier to handle than the older Porter Cable unit that I have borrowed from my father in the past and is light years ahead of the 5” Dewalt that I own in finish, stock removal, and dust collection. It can remove material fast with the heavier grits and leaves a fine finsh as you work up to 240 or 320. The cannister filter that came with it worked very well. ...

Early but so far so good.

Early but so far so good.

I do a lot of scroll saw work. I use thin stock for most of my projects. My old jet 12” bandsaw could only re-saw six inch stock. That always left me with the problem of either planing away valuable wood or trying to buy scroll saw ready wide boards. Neither option was appealing because of cost. I finally decided to upgrade the saw to something larger with more horse power. On my wish list were at least 12 inches of re-saw capability, 4 inch dust port and a reasonably powerful motor...

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

01-13-2014 08:14 PM by brtech | 6 comments »

This insert is made by ColliBeck and available direct (via Ebay) or through Infinity. I purchased it from Infinity. The basic idea here is that it’s a CNC machined plate with a replaceable wooden insert. You can swap inserts in a minute or two, and either make your own, or buy them from Infinity. I have the newer version, which doesn’t use parts from the original Sawstop throat plate. The plate is a beast. Heavy, nicely machined, nicely anodized aluminum. The inserts th...

Anything less then the top name brands you are taking a gamble, some have good luck and some don’t, Myself I’ve to this day with all of the machinery that I’ve purchased from HF have had less then good luck as a matter of fact I’ve wasted more money buying crap from Harbor Freight then if I had just purchased the top name brand tools to begin with… With saying all of this you’d thunk I would’ve learned my lesson by now well this belt sander is the one...

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

07-02-2008 08:15 PM by Woodshopfreak | 4 comments »

This is a blade I was curious about for a long time and I can tell you that this blade is great. I was originally looking into the 40 tooth version of this because Wood magazine had rated it really great but this one just caught my eye because it has more teeth, better for crosscutting, and it has large gullets every five teeth for sawdust removal. This makes it great. I was worried that my “Under powered saw” couldn’t handle ripping with a 50 tooth blade but this thing has ...

Infinity's 010-060 - Fine Crosscuts and General Purpose Versatility In One Blade

Infinity's 010-060 - Fine Crosscuts and General Purpose Versatility In One Blade

03-13-2009 08:22 PM by knotscott | 5 comments »

This is an amazingly clean cutting blade and it happens to have good versatility too. The Hi-ATB teeth are exceptional for crosscutting, but it also rips very cleanly in material to ~ 6/4”. It’ll excel in fine veneered plywood, melamine, hardwood, or other laminate, and is versatile enough to be used for general purpose work. It’s cleaner cutting than my Forrest WWII, Ridge Carbide, Tenryu, DW7657, and Infinity Combomax, though it doesn’t rip as aggressively. It’...
