After spending the whole weekend planing some 2×4s and trying to find my way from under a mountain of shavings I finally decided on a power planer. I got a refurbished one but would be probably better off buying new for the piece of mind that the one was not too abused.See how the table is not in pristine shape out of the box. With the planer I did more in half an hour than I could do with hand planes in two days. It works exceptionally well on changing grain near knots where no ma...

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

The LOW-DOWN of the RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw by WISTY: NOTE: This is a saw that I have had for a while now, I am just getting time to finalize a review for it, enjoy the read! The RIDGID RS1000 is an EXCELLENT saw at an AFFORDABLE price! Excellent for those who are lacking floor space. Highly accurate and extremely powerful saw that is built to last. My personal recommendations are simple: GET ONE AND KEEP IT! Good Luck trying to find one though as anyone who already has one will pr...

Great resource

Great resource

Isaac was great. He rushed my small frame saw kit because I needed the saw for a project. The saw screws were great too. His store is a great resource to making your own saws or restoring old saws.

Small shop air compressor

Small shop air compressor

12-31-2009 06:27 PM by 8iowa | 14 comments »

Many of us appreciate having a brad nailer in our shops. Here in Gainesville, Florida I’m limited to a 225 sq. ft. working area. This 2 gallon Campbell Hausfeld compressor is idea for those of us who have small and very small shops. It sits on a 14” x 13” footprint and is only 15 1/2” high at the top of the handle. This oilless, 100 psi compressor only weighs 17 lbs. It comes fully equipped and ready to use with the included 2” brad nailer/stapler. They ev...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Save your money and buy something else. It took me 3 pairs (two pictured), at almost $15 each, to learn my lesson. 1 Star is too high

My FIRST Festool-

My FIRST Festool-

05-30-2011 12:30 AM by japanesewoodworker | 14 comments »

The last random orbital sander I bought was from a retailer known as ‘Handyman’. (circa 1960’s) This Festool ETS 150/3 EQ is an amazing machine. Its does not even feel like the old Black and Decker that it replaced, of course that was 40 years ago. From the electronic speed control to the internal dust extraction system this the BEST random orbital sander that I have personally handled. When combined with the Festool CT 36 mobile dust extractor the combination of the the...

Steel City 35990G 10" Saw

Steel City 35990G 10" Saw

02-24-2012 04:49 PM by Dorty | 8 comments »

This is the first time I have written a review on any of my tools, but with me doing so much research before buying my Steel City table saw I figured that it might help someone else find the saw they are looking for. After reading some of the other reviews on Steel City I was a little worried about having trouble with the assembly, but I must say it wasn’t all that bad. They sent two extra pages of instructions (besides the manual) that seemed to address some of the problems that othe...

Grizzly Drum Sander

Grizzly Drum Sander

05-25-2013 11:58 AM by GuyK | 16 comments »

Last Saturday I and about 1000 other woodworkers went to the tent sale at Grizzly in Muncy, Pa. I made a small purchase of some glue and drill bits and just spent most of the time there looking at tools that I didn’t have in the shop. One tool that I looked at while there was the Grizzly G1066Z 24” Drum Sander. I was really impressed by all the features it has and the quality of the tool. After coming back to the shop and discussing with Chairman of the Board ( no not my wife ) th...
