Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

04-10-2015 01:22 AM by DKV | 8 comments »

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

Good saw for a good price

Good saw for a good price

09-29-2010 04:00 AM by cpd011 | 2 comments »

Over the weekend I picked up a new miter saw. I had previously been using a 10 year old Delta 10” single bevel miter saw with an Irwin arbor mounted laser. No knocks against the Delta, it has erved me well but I wanted the larger crosscut capacity and a higher fence. I read every review I could find from this and other websites, and also went and kicked the tires at various stores. I decided on the masterforce because it is virtually identical to the Craftsman Professional 12” sl...

Bigger is not always better

Bigger is not always better

03-12-2012 05:01 AM by Sawdust4Blood | 10 comments »

Sadly this is my one Ridgid tool that has turned out to be a disappointment. I confess that I hate sanding and the thought that a larger, more powerful ROS might get me done sanding sooner may have seduced me into choosing this sander about 18 months ago when my faithful 20 year old Porter Cable gave up the ghost. Unfortunately, when it comes to ROSs, bigger is not always better. This sander is heavy and it’s size makes it cumbersome in many applications as well as being difficult ...

I love mine!!!

I love mine!!!

I got mine at Lowes for $399. The review is mostly accurate, but I do not agree with only giving this saw 3 stars. It took about 2 hrs. to assemble, and it was mostly putting the base together. I found it easier to put the base on the saw while it was all lying to the ground, then standing the entire unit upright once it was all assembled. It cuts great, the stock blade is something like a 10 TPI 1/2” general use blade. I have since purchased the Carter 3 TPI hook for cutting big...

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

This Forrest blade is by far the very best blade I have ever owned. I ripped and crosscut some 3/4” Baltic Birch with no bottom chip out at all. All of these years of using cheap blades what a waste of time and material. Looking forward to using my Forrest 8” Dado blade now.

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

08-14-2009 06:27 AM by akdale | 12 comments »

Large top and well made. Ordered this top 2 years ago. Took a while to arrive and when it did the center section was crowned. The table comes in 3 sections of extruded aluminum that you bolt together. I email Sommerfeld and they explained this was a manufacturing issue and that a new section would be mailed. It was, 2 months later. I was told to keep the old section, was only billed for the table, no shipping for the first one or replacement section and they tossed in a well made shop...

Super customer service

Super customer service

05-01-2010 07:42 PM by lilredweldingrod | 10 comments »

I just have to rant (in a very good way) about Ridgid’s customer service. I have a 1998 Ridgid table saw, Mod. TS2412. Before I became the Proud? owner, it was involved in an accident and fell out of a moving truck. In the accident, the spacer, the piece with the two 5/8 pins that the motor mounts on was destroyed. Some one that thought they were a welder tried to make a new one. As a result, when you try to cut an angle, the motor has to rise above the CI bed. It contacts the out feed ...

Forrest Woodworker II 10" 48 Tooth Thin Kerf

Forrest Woodworker II 10" 48 Tooth Thin Kerf

When I bought my saw stop this weekend Woodcraft hooked me up with this blade for only $40. They took the SKU from another blade rang it in and gave me the Forrest Woodworker II 10” 48 Tooth Thin Kerf. I have been wanting to try one of these out for a while, the first thing I noticed like others is the weight of the blade. It is not pretty but very well constructed. With that said I will get to the point of this review. I don’t think this blade is anything special. I don’...
