HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

1533 days ago by CryptKeeper | 7 comments »

I purchased 2 of these units one for my Jet 6” jointer and one for a Powermatic 2800 drill press. By the manufacture specs the 6” jointer weighs 237lbs and the drill press weights in at 209lbs. The HTC works well for both applications. However, I question the load rating of 500lbs on these units I don’t see it being able to support my table saw, that is spece’d at 456 lbs., long term. Pros:Instructions are easy to follow and assembly is straight foreword it took about 15 per unit. ...

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

1255 days ago by thiel | 6 comments »

I use a Grizzly 10 inch (T10010 I think..) wet grinder to sharpen my tools. It’s a barebones machine which approximates similar tools from tormek and jet, and I’ve found its performance just fine. As I get better and better at using my edge tools, I’ve needed to get better at sharpening them, so I’ve invested some time in getting my rig up to final form. Here are some things I’ve learned: —It’s worth it to invest in a jig to hold your chisel/ir...

SawStop 1.75HP Cabinet Saw with 36" rails review

SawStop 1.75HP Cabinet Saw with 36" rails review

1119 days ago by Ty | 10 comments »

After much contemplation, I purchased the SawStop 1.75 Cabinet Saw with 36” rails. For several years, the only table saw I ever experienced was a Delta contractor saw. So yes, SawStop is a HUGE upgrade. First, the assembly directions are extremely well done. Absolutely no problem putting this saw together, other than the Woodcraft employee who didn’t know what SawStop was and failed to give me the correct rails. Aside from that issue, I was able to assemble the saw approximat...

table saw

table saw

541 days ago by BJF | 20 comments »

I have been a woodworker for about 3 years, but have only recently gotten serious. Last March I purchased the Porter Cable, from Lowes, $599. I agonized for year over what table saw to buy. Price wasn’t the biggest issue, it was mostly concern over spending a great deal of money and being disappointed in the result. However, from some classes I took and research I did, it became clear that the equipment doesn’t make the woodworker, so to speak. I also realized that size was a...

HF Aluminum bar clamp

HF Aluminum bar clamp

177 days ago by gamygeezer | 27 comments »

Heat wave yesterday! All the way up to 57F! So I decided to go shopping. I rinsed off the sawdust, trimmed the ear hair, unclogged the sink and cranked up the old DRam. I went to Harbor Freight to check on the locking casters reviewed recently, but really had to browse the whole store. I found a rack of aluminum bar clamps almost exactly like the ones I really like from Jorgensen. Had to get one (or so) of course. I picked the “36 inch”, a handy size, which actually has o...

Excellent Performer for the Money

The M12VC is Hitachi’s basic fixed base 11 amp router, that includes variable speed, soft start, and electronic feedback to maintain a set RPM throughout the cut. It’s also available in a kit as the KM12VC that includes both the fixed and plunge bases. The sub-base accepts the standard size PC style bushing adaptors. I purchased the M12VC in hopes it would be more manageable than my heavier Bosch 1617 for dovetail work. Mine was a refurb purchased through Reconditioned Sale...

First "Real" Table Saw Doesn't Disappoint

First "Real" Table Saw Doesn't Disappoint

1372 days ago by Manitario | 11 comments »

After outgrowing my $100 Ryobi TS; I decided rather than slightly upgrade, to buy a saw that (hopefully) will last a lifetime. I decided on a granite top TS partly due to the climate I live in; it goes down to -30 in the winter, and I didn’t want my top to warp or rust when I heat my garage. Assembly was relatively pain free; it involved attaching the extension wing, the fence guide bars and the plug; overall about 3h worth of work. The fence needed a very slight adjustment to be parall...

This kit comes with a 3/8” VSR drill and a 1/4” drive impact driver, two batteries, 50 minute charger and a canvas carrying case. I’ve only had this kit about a week but it seems to have plenty of power for what it is, after all, it’s only 12V. From the True Value Website: Get two Master Mechanic 12V lithium-ion drills for one low price. Driver combo kit consists of: 3/8” compact cordless drill that features 2 speeds, 0-350 rpm, 0-1050 rpm, 17 torque set...
