1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

07-21-2012 07:45 PM by David White | 16 comments »

Put this link belt onto my table saw this morning – it took all of 5 minutes – and am amazed at the difference it made. The saw is now almost totally vibration free and is much quieter too. If your saw vibrates, you need this belt.

Specialized plane that has a lot of uses

Specialized plane that has a lot of uses

05-31-2008 07:49 AM by ShannonRogers | 6 comments »

I got a great deal on the set of these on ebay, but after using them on my new countertop and router table to trim edge banding I would definately pay full price in a heartbeat. These use the same thick iron and easy adjustment as all the other bevel up planes in the Veritas line. I followed the set up instructions included and was making shavings in just a few moments. After using the set screws to dial in the fit, I pulled out the iron and honed it up to 8000. The back of the iron was a...

BowlSaw

BowlSaw

01-31-2009 03:43 PM by DougTx | 10 comments »

I had a very good experience with the 6” BowlSaw. The pictures show a black walnut blank that I now have a bowl and another piece that can be turned into a smaller bowl and/or a box. I followed the instructions included with the tool and did not have any problems. I started at 120 rpms and finished at 400 rpms. Will probably get the 8” tool and thus can core larger blanks and possibly make 3 bowl out of one blank.DougTx

As many of you have done I am currently in the process of building a poker table, and i am almost finished. The last step of the whole process was to get the fabric and vinyl and i had a hard time finding a good place to get exactly what i wanted. I needed a light fabric and vinyl…pictures will come once i am finished. Well i stumbled upon this site that has everything and more so i thought i would share so anyone else needing supplies to build a poker table can use this site. ALS...

Wixey 8" digital protractor pretty sweet.

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

06-08-2014 08:09 PM by Hawkeye1434 | 34 comments »

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...
