This is a long review but, I hope it will be useful to someone considering this jointer. I purchased this jointer a few weeks ago and wanted to put it through it’s paces before reviewing it. This is an excellent machine and is one of my favorite tools in my shop. I spent a few months contemplating whether or not I even needed a jointer. After reading page after page of online forums I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger. I came really close to purchasing an 8 inch jointer ...

Top notch Waterborne Finish

Top notch Waterborne Finish

01-12-2010 01:48 AM by mckenziedrums | 2 comments »

When I moved into the new house I had to set up my “spray” area near to a hot water heater… That pretty much eliminated any chance I had of spraying flammable liquids. Since I don’t have a dedicated work shop I needed a water based finish I could count on. I’ve tried many of the brands you can get from the box stores and they always had that blue tinge to them that drove me nuts on naturally finished wood. Sure I can get away with blue drums but I didn’t wa...

Not exactly a fine woodworking tool, but it sure does drive nails!

Not exactly a fine woodworking tool, but it sure does drive nails!

I have now owned mine for about 6 months, and put it through plenty of hard paces. The good, the bad, and the ugly of it… The good…Purchase price $49.99 (had a GREAT coupon)...Drives a good variety of nail sizes.Safety works very well.Reasonable magazine capacity. The bad…Uses a LOT of air. My little HF compressor cycles a LOT when I use this thing.Shortest nails this will shoot 2-3/16”, would like to shoot 2” nails with it.Limited to 28 degree nails.Lack o...

Benjamin Moore Aura

I just tried the BM Aura Exterior SemiFrostine White Repainting a 6 panel door. Cost The paint store invested $10,000 tint machine Is it worth $50?That will depend what color your painting over, since I only use white I cannot say Coverage This paint is thick, reminds me of Behr paint.But doesn’t not come close to it. No sags. Great coverage. It doesn’t like being brushed too much, brushing a 6 panel door can be a problem when it dries fast. It can also drip in t...

All is not perfect in Saw Stop Land

All is not perfect in Saw Stop Land

03-12-2012 07:26 PM by ccweems | 95 comments »

While I don’t own a Saw Stop saw and do not doubt their quality and their potential for safety I was given pause by a part counter guy. I asked about the saw and the noted feature. I was told that there didn’t seem to be any problem about the saws or the safety feature but there was about the expense of “false alarms”. He said that most of the stop cartridges were sold due to false activations. When you see the demo of the guy holding the hot dog and then stopping ...

Porter Cable should be ashamed to have their name on these

Porter Cable should be ashamed to have their name on these

06-28-2013 04:48 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 20 comments »

I bought these bits a year and a half ago. They were a “name brand” and in a price range I could afford at the time.This was a major mistake on my part. I bought an expensive sticker with crappy bits in the box. These bits are very cheap and not worth your time or money. I’ve seen reviews on these bits before usually stating that the person just bought them and they work great. That’s the truth. They work great during the “30 day satisfaction” period. These...

Looks good so far

Looks good so far

I’m giving this five stars for now with the disclaimer that I’ve only used it for a short while on one day so far. I will update this if any problems arise. I see some of the issues with the older models, but the Airshield Pro seems to have corrected some of those. For example it is very light. I saw some complaints on the older one being heavy. They also say the current battery will run all day but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know. Here’s why I b...

Wixey Saw Fence Digital Readout  - Installation review

Wixey Saw Fence Digital Readout - Installation review

02-18-2008 06:03 AM by sIKE | 7 comments »

I have really been wanting one of these and I got it for my birthday yesterday. Was excited and got out late this morning and got started on the install. The first picture shows everything that came in the box. Well almost everything, it was missing one of the sensor strips. So my simple two hour install telescoped out within the first 20 minutes. So after an 1:30 minute round trip to Woodcraft to exchange it out. I was able start the install again. Assembly is simple and straight forward, th...

A+ Router

A+ Router

07-02-2008 07:48 PM by Woodshopfreak | 8 comments »

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

Forrest WWII 30T....the other Forrest blade

Forrest WWII 30T....the other Forrest blade

03-13-2009 08:02 PM by knotscott | 11 comments »

As a long time satisfied owner of the 40T WWII, the lesser known 30T WWII is a blade that I’ve wanted to try for quite a while. A rare sale price of $64 shipped was all the encouragement I needed. It’s 40T big brother is more popular and very highly rated across the industry, but we hear very little about this extremely capable 30T version. As far as I’m concerned, the silence should end…this is a terrific blade! The WW10307100 features the same geometry, materials of...
