At first I was going to say i was mad that this thing wasn’t acurate because when i set it on my coffee table flat out and zeroed it, then flipped it over it read .4deg. I put it on the middle shelf and zeroed it, flipped it over and it read .7deg. Didn’t make any sense, the table is flat, didn’t matter which side I zeroed it on, flip it over and it was off. So i tried it on my end table, zeroed it, flipped it over and it read zero. LIGHT BULB WENT ON. Zeroed it on th...

Woodpeckers Precision Clamping Squares

Woodpeckers Precision Clamping Squares

07-22-2012 12:05 AM by vipond33 | 14 comments »

Next to keeping your fingers attached to your hands, easily the most important thing in regular woodworking is keeping things square. I can’t count the number of times I’ve gotten myself in trouble over the years by being lax about this. The cure to out of square is painful, time consuming and often fruitless. “Oh, it’ll be alright” is the faint siren song in your memory as you look in dismay upon your project. This is what I do for a living so it’s wor...

Never again will I trust Grizzly for "Precision" equipment

Never again will I trust Grizzly for "Precision" equipment

I just had the biggest hassle of my life when I got the grizzly 8 inch spiral head dovetail jointer. It took me about three months before I actually got a chance to unpackaged my purchase and then it took me another three days to get all the Schmutz cleaned off of it from the being sent from overseas. I thought to myself boy this is going to be awesome 8 inch helical cutterhead for less than half of the price of a powermatic. Once I finally got the machine set up I put a straight edge on i...

Lightweight saw  cuts with power and precision

Lightweight saw cuts with power and precision

05-31-2008 03:12 PM by Loren | 7 comments »

I don’t like the big 10 and 12” Slide compound saws. They aretoo heavy to easily move around. I’m a relatively young man andI am strong, but still I don’t like lifting much more than 40 lbs. if I’m installing trim. I bought this saw because I was doing a job where I had to miter9” wide crown moulding and my older 12” miter saw (not a slider)wasn’t able to do it, even on the flat. The larger a blade on one of these sliding saws, the more ...

JDS Dust Force

JDS Dust Force

07-26-2009 05:44 AM by buffalosean | 10 comments »

I ordered a steel city 1 1/2 hp dc from woodcraft on mar 6 as a birthday present to myself….. lol. I didn’t come for two months. my local woodcraft store was more than helpful and set me home with the jds 1 1/2 hp dc. I love it. It has a one micron bag. removing the dust bag is way easier than the jet dc. My dust collection is set up for one tool at a time. I have a small weekend/weekday night shop. I’m the only one using it. The collector has stood up very well all...

POS Stapler

POS Stapler

About a year ago, I purchased the Stanley TRE550 Electric Stapler. I know it wasn’t the most expensive stapler on the market and I didn’t expect it to be the “end all” of electric staplers. I used it once to make the child’s rocker which probably required driving 150 1/4” staples into oak. It didn’t have great power but then, I didn’t expect it to be a muscle machine and I could live with tapping in the unset staples. Now picture this, I am ...

ok this is my 1st review so go easy on me..lolanyways “out of the box” this saw seems to work really well, the stock blade could maybe be a little better but i planned on a better blade anyways so no huge deal, i also bought the 6 inch extension for it but it was put on B.O. so i should get it this week so ill try and review on it with the extension at a later timeive had the saw for about 3 days so far and the 2nd pic was literally plugging it in and cutting, the fence probly was...

My wife got me a craftsman impact driver for my birthday a while back. I know some people like to pick on craftsman, but I already had their cordless drill and I wanted to stick with interchangeable batteries. I use the 19.2V Ni-Cds. I know a lot of people swear by the Li-Ion, but those cost a lot more money. Now I’ll be able to upgrade in the future if I want, but based on my experience so far, I have no plans to do so. This thing is AWESOME! I can drive a 3” screw into a...

i have three of these chisels, 2 that i inherited and one that i have just bought. i amassed every time i use them and very disappointed in my old chisels. the Japanese chisels may seem like a big investment, but trust me every time you use them you be pleased that you bought them.the specialist metal cuts like a dream and will hold its bevel for as long as any tool i know.i think if you can fork out the cash that they’re well worth it.thanks forreadingCO

Poor quality control

Poor quality control

I received a Bosch Gcm12sd dual bevel glide miter saw from my lovely wife for Christmas 2011 so its about 2 months old. Up until now i’ve only used it in the “chop saw” mode with narrow materials. Recently I tried to crosscut a 1” x 12” an realized there is a problem that cant be adjusted. The blade is not parallell with the arm that moves it. As I complete a cut through a 12” board the trailing end of the blade is cutting an additional 32nd off the left ...
