Belt sander

This is an easy review as I have used this sander for years in cabinet shops but I haven’t got around to buying one for myself. It is one of those tools that you do without but shouldn’t.My wife picked this sander up for my fathers day gift This machine hasn’t changed much in the many years that I have used it witch is a good thing.I like Porter Cable products but not all this sander they got right, right out of the gate.This sander has lots of power,good balance.Loading a n...

I am disappointed

I am disappointed

10-20-2011 10:30 AM by MNgary | 17 comments »

While not, in my opinion, a professional level lathe this full-sized lathe is adequate for advanced hobbyists wanting to turn spindles longer than popular midi lathes allow and it does a nice job turning turning shallow bowls. I have not turned pens so do not know how it performs for that more precision task. Assembly is straightforward and waiting until the 170 pound lathe is placed in its final location before tightening the stand’s bolts allows installation on an uneven concrete ...

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

Well finally recieved my saws after 5 weeks’s of waiting. Both saws were shipped in sturdy wooden packing crates, and were pretty well fully assembled. They were covered in plastic and some type of grease preventing them from rusting during transport. Neither saw had one scratch or any paint problems. I was very happy to recieve them in this condition. One major problem they sent the wrong fence and rails with the Cabinet saw, now I am waiting again. Hopefully it shows up soon as I a...

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

06-21-2013 07:18 PM by Nick_R | 4 comments »

*UPDATE* After using these tools for a few months and turning lots of stuff I have found a reason to complain.. But really these are great tools and seem to live up to marketing however the edges do not last as long as you might think, They do not stay super sharp and then one day become dull. It is an over time degradation so you reach a point where the tool is not dull but not really sharp either… You have to debate on whether to turn the blade and what happens is you don’t t...

Vacuum Clamp System  ( Lee Valley )

Vacuum Clamp System ( Lee Valley )

01-11-2014 11:02 PM by JerrySats | 1 comment »

I’ve been looking for an easy way to hold parts for sanding and spotted the V Clamp made by Vac Clamps . Lee Vallery carries the product . So with the recent free shipping I ordered the double sided clamp system along with the on and off switch . Setting it up is pretty easy , you’ll need at least a small compressor to run it . I did a video and tried to show how well it holds things , but its hard to tell . There’s no trickery I really tired to pull the bond off but can&#...

Because this is identical to the Wood River model, I posted my review with the other under that category. http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3960

No manual lock, auto brake doesn't work, frustrating to use

No manual lock, auto brake doesn't work, frustrating to use

01-02-2015 07:54 AM by Rick M. | 9 comments »

Woodcraft donated a bunch of these as door prizes to our local woodworking club. The guys passing them out were making fun of them. At first glance it seems like a nice tape measure. It fits the hand well. Looks good for plastic. Has a good rubber grip. The numbers are easy to read and the fractions are clearly marked. The problem is it has no manual lock, instead it has an auto brake so when you pull it out it’s supposed to stay then you press a button to retract. Unfortunately the bra...

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

02-21-2015 01:30 PM by MC | 2 comments »

I am working on a project which I have incorporated a piece of figured oak. Even with a blade with a fresh and carefully honed edge in my smoothing plane I could not prevent tear out on the board. I ordered the scraping plane specifically for the purpose of preparing the surface of this figured wood. The #112 finish is perfect and the blade thickness is substantial. While waiting for the delivery of the #112 I watched the LN video on setting up this plane. The video is essential as the dir...

My dad gave me this. I’ve used it once or twice. For me it was very easy to break blades but it was because I kept wanting to push it like a jigsaw. I think if you practiced with it it would be a useful tool.

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

04-29-2010 02:54 PM by spaids | 29 comments »

These blades are so dull, I couldn’t even cut my finger with these. I contacted Freud directly about it and all I received was “thats our blades thats how they come. If you don’t like it you should return them to where you bought them. We don’t get any complaints about our blades” Umm YES you do get complaints because I was complaining with him right then. The dull blades I am replacing are sharper than these brand new Freud blades and Freud has ZERO concer...
