Extra Large drum sander

Extra Large drum sander

1988 days ago by Tony | 18 comments »

I have just acquired this beast of a drum sander from Jet, minus the stand. The installation and initial setting up was very easy, even single handed, but be warned the main part of the unit is very heavy 85kg (187lbs), then add the extension tables and you are talking about 100kg (220lbs). (A similar unit to the Performax 22- 44 Plus Drum Sander, see the review posted by GaryK Please note that this is a European version, the drum sander specs may be different in your country. The i...

1/2 lock miter router bit

1/2 lock miter router bit

1410 days ago by Edward83 | 13 comments »

I saw this while looking through the router bits at Lowes. I never heard of of a lock miter router bit and feeling adventurous I decided to drop the thirty dollars for it in hopes of upping my abilities to build a better quality box. I read the instructions and set it up in my router table. The instructions suggest having a few pieces to practice on, and believe me they weren’t kidding. It says that you can use it on boards up to 3/4 in. but I would do it a little shy. The nature o...

PORTER-CABLE 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw with Stand

PORTER-CABLE 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw with Stand

1293 days ago by FJPetruso | 7 comments »

I have a 24” Delta / Rockwell scroll saw but found it too hard to change blades for scroll work & has too much vibration. When I decided to get a bit more serious about scroll work I checked outquite a few brands & “off”-brands. Yes I’d love to have a New Dewalt or Delta but you need at least $600 to get a new one. I wanted a saw for under $200. There’s quite a few out there… Most of them crappy. But the best one I found in that price range is ...

Tenryu GM-25540-2 Gold Medal 10" 40T General Purpose Saw Blade (Full kerf)

Tenryu GM-25540-2 Gold Medal 10" 40T General Purpose Saw Blade (Full kerf)

1029 days ago by Allanwoodworks | 9 comments »

Wow, is all I can say about this product. I did not see a review for the Full Kerf version her on the site and just wanted to add my two cents. I finally decided that it’s time to upgrade my table saw blade for my 3HP grizzly cabinet saw. For the past year I have been using a Irwin 40 tooth Marathon blade and it did wall, at least that what I thought. I have a Woodmizer saw mill and dry my own lumber, so I try to make everything 8/4 and as large as possible so that I can cut it down to siz...

Amazing Saw For The Price........ Minus the Insert Plate

Amazing Saw For The Price........ Minus the Insert Plate

889 days ago by WoodyPete | 8 comments »

This is an amazing saw for the price in my opinion. The reviews written by ‘LafayetteJack’ & ‘bobdobbs’ are dead on with my assessment of this saw. I’m just adding my 2 cents to the review of the product…...... I have no financial interest in Porter Cable or Lowes, and my woodworking experience is beginner – intermediate and is simply my hobby. I purchased this saw for many of the same reasons stated by the other reviewers: 1) This is the ...

When a square is not square...

When a square is not square...

718 days ago by nwbusa | 11 comments »

I’ll make this review short and sweet. When it comes to try squares, they really only have to do one thing well—be square. I bought this inexpensive Crown 4” try square, not expecting any more or any less from it. Unfortunately, it failed in its primary purpose—it was only mostly square, and that just ain’t good enough. The specific problem was that the blade was indeed square to the base; however, the top of the blade was not parallel to the bottom. The las...

Green and Yellow Sucker

Green and Yellow Sucker

2231 days ago by dmann | 12 comments »

Since I had some encounters with turning and sanding toxic woods earlier this year I’ve been saving up for a dust collector. I turn wood on a Jet 1220 and don’t generate a ton of sawdust or sanding dust but enough to be a nuisance. The shop vac can’t keep up and is quiet noisy. I have experience with some 1.5hp Jet and Delta models but they were very bigger and noisier than I was looking for. Amazon currently has Delta AP-400’s on sale for $138 shipped but I would b...

Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

1684 days ago by richgreer | 6 comments »

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

1571 days ago by CryptKeeper | 7 comments »

I purchased 2 of these units one for my Jet 6” jointer and one for a Powermatic 2800 drill press. By the manufacture specs the 6” jointer weighs 237lbs and the drill press weights in at 209lbs. The HTC works well for both applications. However, I question the load rating of 500lbs on these units I don’t see it being able to support my table saw, that is spece’d at 456 lbs., long term. Pros:Instructions are easy to follow and assembly is straight foreword it took about 15 per unit. ...

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

1293 days ago by thiel | 6 comments »

I use a Grizzly 10 inch (T10010 I think..) wet grinder to sharpen my tools. It’s a barebones machine which approximates similar tools from tormek and jet, and I’ve found its performance just fine. As I get better and better at using my edge tools, I’ve needed to get better at sharpening them, so I’ve invested some time in getting my rig up to final form. Here are some things I’ve learned: —It’s worth it to invest in a jig to hold your chisel/ir...
