Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

05-31-2011 03:54 AM by bill4123 | 16 comments »

I just finished installing my Laguna Tools Driftmaster Fence on my Grizzly 17” Extreme Series bandsaw. I have only used it briefly to test it but I felt compelled to let everyone know about my negative feedback up to this point. I had a smooth transaction from Rockler and the shipping was prompt. The fence itself though was shipped as it came from the manufacturer and it is very much in-line with Laguna’s reputation…it arrived damaged. It was not damaged enough to effe...

Why did I wait so long?

Why did I wait so long?

I order all of my pen supplies from Penn State and kept seeing this on their site. I don’t do a whole lot of acrylic work, but when I read reviews on their site saying it worked just as well on a CA finished pen as a final buff, I figured it was worth a try. The directions on the bottle say to sand to 400-600 grit. Wanting to err on the side of caution I went to 600 grit (as opposed to the normal 12,000 I typically use on acrylics) and turned off the lathe. My sanding marks at this p...

I have been drooling over the thought of owning a tracksaw for a few years now, and i finally broke down and bought one a couple days ago! I have always been the type to wait and buy a tool when i need to put it right to work. I am working on a big trophy/show case job right now and wanted to make all the backs of these cases out of 3/4” oak plywood in order to have some good meat there to mount all the adjustible shelf tracking too. I really didnt want to wrestle all these sheets (a...

I was in Harbor Freight today and found a sale on Nitrile [blue] gloves. Box of 100 medium duty [5 mil] gloves for $6.99 I stocked up on these as the regular price at the normal wood working places is $17.99 per box. That is over 250% the price from Harbor Freight I do not know for how long the sale will last.

I have become accustomed to long lasting sandpaper like Norton 3x, and Freuds excellent ceramic blend sanding disks for my random orbit sander. I was running low on supplies, so I grabbed these Dewalt disks one day. Almost instantly the paper loads and clogs while sanding oak and Titebond II glue. The sanding was short lived, and I clocked about 8-10 minutes of sanding before switching pads. At first I thought the dust collection was excellent, then I realized it was only because these di...

Good luck finding one

I saw the review of a refurbished jointer and wanted to post a review on a unique table saw. The Hammond Glider saws were originally designed to cut lead type for printing presses. They are a very precise, sliding table saw with accessories designed to easily and accurately position very small pieces for cutting. I purchased mine for $50.00 on Craigs List and this included a very strong 1 HP motor. When I picked up the saw, the table was a solid sheet of rust. However, the table still sl...

This sander was purchased because I needed one for the workshop but I also needed something to sand the floors we are refinishing in our 76 year old home. This guy proved to be a champ. The floor I started on is about 400 sq.ft. This is pretty much how the entire floor was when we ripped up the carpet; These are the results; This sander, $130.00 plus tax, paired with my Fein Turbo III vacuum busted through carpet adhesive, gouges and scratches in the old yellow pine f...

I got my Powermatic 2000 table saw the other day. It is a 10” 3HP saw with a 50” Accufence and extention table. I also got a free Powermatic metal sign, zero clearance insert and zero clearance dado insert. I bought the saw from Tool-Plus for $2,669 which included the saw, freight and tail gate service http://www.tools-plus.com/powermatic-1792000k.html. The saw was very well packaged and came thru with no damage. Everything was there except for the hardware package for the Accu...

Tried this bit out on a round tabouret top and shelf and this bit does a great job. No tearout whatsoever because you’re never going against the grain..The attached link explains it pretty well.Definitely recommended.

Harbor Freight Scissor Lift Table

Tool Review 500 lb capacity hydraulic lift table I struggle lowering cabinets or other heavy items from the workbench down to the floor. It’s often more of a controlled drop than anything else. I thought it was just me, but the topic came up on one of the forums recently. Someone mentioned that they used a scissor lift table from Harbor Freight and several others chimed in saying they used the same thing. It was such a simple solution, I had to get one. A friend picked it up...
