Craftsman 12'' bandsaw

06-09-2011 02:54 AM by WoodworkingGeek | 22 comments »

Hi lumber jocks!! I got some great news!! I got a used 12’’ bandsaw!! I found it on cregslist for $85 great deal don’t you think. We brought the saw home and set it up in the garage and did some test cuts, gave the blade guards some adjustment and the saw did great in the test!! The saw has a 7’’ 1/2’’ cutting capacity. And has a powerful 1/2 hp motor. The fence is very nice, but it appears that the table is mounted backwards because the adjustment ha...

I haven't been this disappointed since the last episode of Lost

I haven't been this disappointed since the last episode of Lost

This is a review that’s been four years in the making. GAS25 from the Bosch ‘Professional’ (blue) range. It’s a shop vac that fits onto everything, is easily transported, large capacity bag, relatively quiet in use, cable and hose a decent length, fits all my tools, keeps the air and floor clean. Everything good right? Read on. After 4 months needed replacement brushes (not covered under warranty) After 2 years control panel burnt out, uneconomical repair, unit r...

Masterforce 12" Drill Press Review

Masterforce 12" Drill Press Review

06-12-2013 07:48 AM by 03roadking | 22 comments »

I had bought some windows through menards while they were having an 11% rebate promo going on. When the rebate arrived I decided I was going to buy a drill press with it. Out of all the drill presses that Menards carries this one seemed like the best one to me. The only other options were Performax and Tool Shop. So far it has done everything I need it to do. I especially like how you do not have to change belts to change the speed. The light is a nice feature and the laser helps get ...

Satisfied Customer - Recommended Machine (but watch for missing components)

Satisfied Customer - Recommended Machine (but watch for missing components)

01-03-2014 03:57 AM by lumbermeister | 2 comments »

NOTE: First posted this review a few weeks ago; now updated with my experience adjusting tables for Coplanarity, and updating my overall take on the machine. Duration of ownership at time of this review – 3 months. Reason for purchasing this unit – Parallelogram design for longer beds than dovetail of same width; 6” wide and 55” long would fit in my relatively small shop and, additionally, be easier to maneuver to a downstairs basement (compared to an 8” machine). ...

Harbor Freigth Tree Pruning Tool

Harbor Freigth Tree Pruning Tool

07-12-2014 01:08 PM by b2rtch | 13 comments »

I had several trees with dead branches that I wanted to cut.Several times at Harbor Freight I looked at the cordless electric chainsaw which at $60.00 after rebate is a good buy but being cheap I decided not not buy it but to buy the manual tool instead.I am very glad I did. It is very well build made not of cheap stuff but heavy steel and the adjustable pole is also steel and lock with a 1/4 turn or so.I used this tool most of the day yesterday and I am very happy with it.I paid around $12.0...

Like we've come to expect, an A+ DVD!

Like we've come to expect, an A+ DVD!

06-14-2008 10:00 PM by teenagewoodworker | 0 comments »

as the title states this is an A+ DVD. as we’ve some to expect it is very thorough also. one thing that the DVD talks about is lumber selection. about knots, working with them, the boards themselves, the grain and everything in between then preparing the lumber, and don’t get worried that it will all be big tools. Charles uses only a tablesaw and planner for most of the milling process. he also uses a drum sander but that can be substituted for a planer. then with all the...

Nothing plain about this plane!

Nothing plain about this plane!

02-28-2009 02:08 AM by Mark Shymanski | 16 comments »

This is my 1000th post so I thought I should make it special; so I will write about a great plane my great wife gave me for my birthday (its actually on Sunday but we were in Winnipeg visiting my brother and his wife so we had an impromptu birthday party there). Any way this is of course a Lee Valley tool and you can go to their web page for dimensions etc. I’ll just write about my impression of the tool. First off is the heft of the tool, its got a good solid feel to it and the tote...

Triton 2 1/4hp plunger router

Triton 2 1/4hp plunger router

02-04-2011 01:42 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 6 comments »

WOW! This was my Christmas present this year and I have been impressed every time I use this router. The construction of the tool is outstanding to say the least. The brushes are easy to access, the plunge is smooth and easy to control, the rack-and-pinion plunge is very groovy, even the depth turret is user friendly and easy to adjust. The depth stop itself is idiot-resistant and hasn’t slipped on me yet (unlike the Freud model). I didn’t know if I would like the one-wrench colle...
