Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

01-18-2010 06:37 PM by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

Poor Man's Festool

Poor Man's Festool

05-11-2010 04:05 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Intro For the longest time I wanted to get the Festool CT-33 (I would also be satisfied with the 22 version) as I believe that to be the flagship unit of the company – sure they make exceptional tools, but this one is by far their best contender in my opinion. Problem is – for my hobby use, it’s just beyond what I can justify to spend on a small dust extractor. A month ago, someone posted the PC 7810 vacuum on craigslist, but it was in a very used condition, and I felt...

Puma Compressor

Puma Compressor

10-19-2010 06:49 PM by Raymond | 5 comments »

PUMA 5020VP I had been stressing over the purchase of a new compressor for sometime now. Do I want a vertical or horizontal? Oiled or oil less, 110 or 220, HP vs CFM or SCFM. And then there was manufacture, Harbor Freight, Craftsman, Campbell Hausfeld, Sanborn So may many things to think of. Finally I decided on the PUMA 5020VP 20 gallon Manufacture Specifications • 5 HP, 110 /220 volt air compressor • 100% durable cast iron radial pump • Belt driven, oil lubricated pump ...

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

02-13-2011 09:57 PM by FJPetruso | 5 comments »

I found this Bucket Head Vacuum on display at Home Depot a while back & decided to give it a try. Heck… It’s only 20 bucks & uses an ordinary 5 gallon plastic bucket for collection of dust & chips. (I just happen to have acquired a couple of plastic buckets that have the same rim dimensions but hold about 7-1/2 gsllons & are several inches taller.) There’s no doubt that it’s a cheap vacuum but it works well. The filter is a simple pouch over the suc...

Great little lathe to get starting with woodturning!

Great little lathe to get starting with woodturning!

03-23-2012 03:37 PM by dpoisson | 3 comments »

It’s very gunky when you first take it out of the box. But after a good cleaning, I installed it on a mastercraft metal stand. When I rev up the speed, there can be some vibration, but nothing that is worrying. I love the electronic variable speed control. When I noticed that some more expensive lathes do not even include this feature, I was shocked. Once you taste the feature, you probably don’t ever want to go back to pulleys and belts or whatever else they use. There’s so...

good saw guide with small problems

good saw guide with small problems

09-10-2012 10:44 AM by americancanuck | 5 comments »

I found this to work very well with one problem. The little red pointer that is used to line up the saw blade with the scale on the beam covers up the numbers making it impossible to see. a good solution would be to make this peice out of clear plastic. Other than that I found this to be acurate and easy to use. It’s a godsend when ripping down full sheets of plywood. Storage with the saw connected is a problem so I have been removing the saw after each use. The problem with this is th...

This a great feature to have moving a heavy piece of machinery like a table saw. Assembly was a piece of cake. There are a lot of nuts and bolts so it does take a bit of time. Rolls my new 340 lb plus G0661 table saw very easily. Can be adjusted from 20” x 20” to 29 1/2” x 29 1/2”. Can support 700 lbs. Heavy duty castors. Nice fit and finish.

Product Rating, sort of, Merchant Rating for sure

Product Rating, sort of, Merchant Rating for sure

01-24-2014 01:46 AM by kajunkraft | 10 comments »

I recently purchased the Grizzly G0452Z jointer. It has the spiral cutterhead. Assembly was pretty easy, took about an hour. Directions were pretty good. Condition of all parts, finish, etc. was fine. The machine does an awesome job of flattening, as it is supposed to, and is very quiet (relative to the bladed versions). So, in my opinion this is a great machine. What I really want to comment on, however, is Grizzly’s customer service. This machine came in two boxes. Box 1 ...

Good planer so far

Good planer so far

09-02-2014 12:37 AM by Mimeda | 9 comments »

Hello everybody, this is my first review on this forum. I am a hobbyist woodworker, just working on small projects late at night or during weekends and learning on the way for the past 2-3 years. I started just with a bunch of hand tools and gradually evolved to buy a few indispensable tools. I bought this planer from Amazon, total price including shipping at my door in 2 days $299. As seen below it arrived in a sturdy box, no dents or scratches. After removing some styrofoam and pr...
