New Fence

New Fence

01-24-2013 03:54 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...

Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar

Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar

02-10-2011 12:18 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This is the monster Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar. Being a recent addition to my hammer arsenal, I am still putting it through its paces. It is the big brother to the Stanley 55-119 Fubar, which I have had for a few years. It is bigger, meaner, and much heavier at 4.5 pounds. It adds the claw type nail puller, similar to a regular hammer, which allows more versatility for pulling fasteners. The grip is identical to the 55-119, which I love: Great contour, no slip, and a great feel...

Harbor Freight Air Drill

Harbor Freight Air Drill

06-26-2011 03:59 AM by Raymond | 0 comments »

I reciently was at Harbor Freight and picked up a few goodies. I have been looking for a few air tools lately and since I have had good luck with Harbor Freight tools I figured to give them a shot. My first item was the 3/8” Reversible Air Drill With Keyed Chuck and Key 19.99, 5 cfm at 90 1700 rpm. Out of the box it looked great no packing grease to remove, packaged nicely in bubble wrap with instructions and a chuck key, no air fitting (would be nice if that was included). I have been ...

Earlex 5500 great for hobbyist or semi-pro

Earlex 5500 great for hobbyist or semi-pro

03-18-2012 08:56 PM by Kevin_S | 7 comments »

I definitely recommend the Earlex 5500. It’s a great sprayer. So far, I’ve used it to spray both shellac and polyurethane and it did a good job on both. I bought it so I could spray shellac on my latest project, but it was so easy to use that I also sprayed my polyurethane top coat with it. Cleanup is really easy, especially with the Teflon lined cup. One of my favorite features is the secure storage for the gun on the unit. I don’t have to look around for a good place to set the gun an...

Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 Review

Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 Review

08-30-2012 02:38 PM by Daris | 14 comments »

I’ve had my Craftsman Table Saw for about a year now, and it is rock solid!  I previously owned a craftsman saw that had the tabletop made out of aluminium.  It was okay for the money, but wasn’t very sturdy.  Frequently when I would feed plywood into the table it would tip the whole saw.  My new saw has been really solid and almost a year later I can say I’m very happy with it. Before I go any further though I have to say I have a weird myopic bias for and against ...

Grizzly 17" GO513 BS

Grizzly 17" GO513 BS

02-24-2008 07:32 PM by Al Killian | 8 comments »

I bought a Grizzly 17” bs model#513 a few weeks ago. It arrived in exellent condtion and took less then a hours to put it together and fine tune it. I have now resawn aroung 20bdft of apple, 5 bdft of walnut and several others. It has not bogged down much, only when cutting a 1/4” peice off of a chunk that was 11-1/2” tall. This may also due to the fact that it is running on 120at this time and shareing the circuit w/ a few lights. All in all it is a exellent machine and wel...

I am posting this so all the LJ-ers out there won’t start thinking I drank some kind of Harbor Freight Cool Aid or anything like that… A while back I acquired a Drill Master 94203 1” to 2-1/2” Hole Saw Set from Harbor Freight Tools to bore some large holes after my old Ace Hardware set was discovered missing. (Long story, problem since solved). As often as I have been using a hole saw, I figured a cheapie wouldn’t be a bad thing. I was wrong. The good. T...

May, 2010this review is from the May, 2010 issue of our eMag The Ultimate Band Saw Book by our very own Donna Menke As always I am as fascinated by the author’s story as I am the book itself. Reading about Donna having the balance of a mother’s push to try new things along with a father’s guidance at doing a job well, to using art, math, and engineering skills to create the plans for the band saw boxes, well, I was hooked from the start! I knew the book was going to be...

Veritas Jointer Plane

Veritas Jointer Plane

(you can click the picture to go to Lee-Valley’s web site and read more if you so desire.) With Veritas I expect a good quality, mid-range tool and that’s exactly what I got. Like a kid at Christmas, I had to take a few swipes with it last night right out of the box. It did ok out of the box. Tonight I honed the blade and started getting her setup. The blade, the O1 version, was not as flat as I would have expected so I had to spend a good amount of time getting the back f...
