Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

12-27-2013 03:41 PM by woodmaker | 10 comments »

Well, my lovely wife presented me an early Xmas present in November so I could Umm, make Xmas presents. so I ordered the Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead. I made a bunch of cutting boards so I ran a lot of walnut, Cherry and Maple through this jointer and it never missed a beat. I’m not going through all the hoopla of shipping/receiving and uncrating except to say it takes two to get that aircraft carrier of a cutter up on the stand. This beast weighs in at 600 pou...

Veritas Vietnamese style hand plane

Just figured if post a couple pics of my Vietnamese style hand plane I got from veritas for 62$. It’s 245mm and comes hand tuned with a camber allready on the blade! Made from rosewood I believe and I’m very impressed so far.. Will update once it gets some abuse. Iron sides

Square it up!

Square it up!

Why this oneI was building my shop doors and getting frustrated with the dimensional clear redwood. I tried to make a router table style jointer with a shimmed outfeed but that did not work. I got the go ahead for a jointer, did a little research and settled on the Grizzly. With delivery it was around $800. I have the standard blade system though I have heard great things about the spiral cutter head. Set upThe saw comes in two boxes. The stand is not heavy at all. The bed and motor ...

Great drill...but

Great drill...but

02-12-2009 03:15 PM by Cathy Krumrei | 20 comments »

This drill has alot of long lasting power and when the battery goes dead..it’s dead! We received 2 batteries and it doesn’t take long to recharge the dead one. The downfall I have with this-the bit loosens when in reverse. You really have to hold to tighten the chuck…but for me the bit still drops on the floor. I may find something to add around it as the plastic tends to just slip from my grip and it can hurt. With the 18V it’s a bit on the heavier side but the power ...

Ryobi AP 1301 13-inch portable planer: good basic planer for beginning woodworkers

Ryobi AP 1301 13-inch portable planer: good basic planer for beginning woodworkers

01-02-2010 02:42 AM by dmoney | 22 comments »

keep in mind:I’ve had this for about a week so here are my opinions so far.This is my first planer. I bought this one reconditioned. It was cheap, only $159 at cporyobi.com. free shipping and no sales tax. It does a good job planing. All I’ve ran thru it is oak and pine. The results are very good, probably because the blades are still new. It has no infeed/outfeed extension. In the pic you can see I made a crude one for myself using a leaf from an old dining room tabl...

Initial impressions of the Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter w/ Remote.

Initial impressions of the Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter w/ Remote.

09-14-2010 04:25 PM by dbhost | 13 comments »

For starters, I am not claiming this is an all inclusive review, but rather this is an initial impressions write up for the Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter w/ remote. I have been watching price tags on these machines for quite some time now, and had considered the smaller Jet, Penn State, Delta, even Harbor Freight models, and had been put off by either the price tag, or the features. The G0572 had the CFM I was looking for, and was on sale for a price tag I was willing to spend. For the ...

It does what it says

I’ve never written a review before. But, there’s been many conflicting reviews on the internet such as Amazon and a few others about the difficulty of assembling the base. I’ve had no problems putting this together. However, the box did say “Improved Design”. Maybe that had something to do with it. It was quite simple, and the instructions were clear. The only reason I looked at the instructions was because some people were having such problems, that I was try...

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

10-09-2011 01:00 PM by Don Johnson | 4 comments »

I obtained this product from ALDI, and I appreciate that they may not have outlets all over the world, but for UK (and German ?) LJs, looking for a cheap and cheerful dust collector to go before a domestic vacuum cleaner, at £14.99 this could be a useful accessory. The ports are simply positioned vertically in the top, so there is probably little cyclone effect, and the system depends on the included Herpa filter to prevent ‘nasties’ getting to the driving vacuum cleaner. But...

Windsor design 60" workbench

Windsor design 60" workbench

01-07-2013 07:16 AM by flyboiy | 11 comments »

On sale for $139, how could I go wrong. You could not build this on your own for less. The felt lined drawers are roomy and strong. The top of the bench is roughly 1” solid oak, with 2×1 oak edging all the way around. As a matter of fact, the meat of the table is solid oak except for parts of the drawer and the bottom shelf. After assembly (2 hours) I was amazed at how sturdy it was. As with many wood projects that need to be assembled, I had some alignment issues, but not a big de...

Hock Blades plane iron and cap iron (chip breaker)

Hock Blades plane iron and cap iron (chip breaker)

05-26-2013 07:42 PM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I’ve been wanting to upgrade the blade in this plane since I restored it a while back. The iron is almost gone and pitted badly and the cap iron is mainly what has prevented this plane from being used in my shop as it chatters really bad. I’ve tried sharpening and flattening the blade, and re-shaping the cap iron but it’s warped so bad it will never work. I finally put out the cash for a blade I picked up from Woodcraft but they didn’t have a cap iron in 2-5/8” w...
