I got mine at Lowes for $399. The review is mostly accurate, but I do not agree with only giving this saw 3 stars. It took about 2 hrs. to assemble, and it was mostly putting the base together. I found it easier to put the base on the saw while it was all lying to the ground, then standing the entire unit upright once it was all assembled. It cuts great, the stock blade is something like a 10 TPI 1/2” general use blade. I have since purchased the Carter 3 TPI hook for cutting big...

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

This Forrest blade is by far the very best blade I have ever owned. I ripped and crosscut some 3/4” Baltic Birch with no bottom chip out at all. All of these years of using cheap blades what a waste of time and material. Looking forward to using my Forrest 8” Dado blade now.

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

08-14-2009 06:27 AM by akdale | 12 comments »

Large top and well made. Ordered this top 2 years ago. Took a while to arrive and when it did the center section was crowned. The table comes in 3 sections of extruded aluminum that you bolt together. I email Sommerfeld and they explained this was a manufacturing issue and that a new section would be mailed. It was, 2 months later. I was told to keep the old section, was only billed for the table, no shipping for the first one or replacement section and they tossed in a well made shop...

Super customer service

Super customer service

I just have to rant (in a very good way) about Ridgid’s customer service. I have a 1998 Ridgid table saw, Mod. TS2412. Before I became the Proud? owner, it was involved in an accident and fell out of a moving truck. In the accident, the spacer, the piece with the two 5/8 pins that the motor mounts on was destroyed. Some one that thought they were a welder tried to make a new one. As a result, when you try to cut an angle, the motor has to rise above the CI bed. It contacts the out feed ...

Forrest Woodworker II 10" 48 Tooth Thin Kerf

Forrest Woodworker II 10" 48 Tooth Thin Kerf

02-07-2011 08:14 PM by agallant | 39 comments »

When I bought my saw stop this weekend Woodcraft hooked me up with this blade for only $40. They took the SKU from another blade rang it in and gave me the Forrest Woodworker II 10” 48 Tooth Thin Kerf. I have been wanting to try one of these out for a while, the first thing I noticed like others is the weight of the blade. It is not pretty but very well constructed. With that said I will get to the point of this review. I don’t think this blade is anything special. I don’...

At the woodworking show in NJ a couple weeks ago I bought the show promo kit which included the large table, steel stand, fence, micro adjuster, caster, switch, two feather-boards, and a flip-stop. It totaled $593.85. It was back-ordered when they sold to me, but they actually got it to me much faster then they had hoped (which was a nice surprise). Finally had a chance to start putting it together, so wanted to post some feedback, for anyone who is interested in possibly getting one. Righ...

Rockler 34193 Pizza Blade cutter Kit

Rockler 34193 Pizza Blade cutter Kit

01-20-2013 01:56 PM by John Truffa | 3 comments »

I’m a crafter and have made many pizza cutters using the Rockler Kit. No one comes near it it for durability and craftmanship. I use cocoblo for the handle. To keep the handle from cracking when inserting the threaded insert I put a ferrel on the end (same size as the one that comes with their ice craem scoop). I’ve been looking for a plastic blade cover to no avail! If anyone can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I called Rockler but they couldn’t hel...

Good Chisel set for the money

Good Chisel set for the money

07-29-2014 12:05 AM by mramseyISU | 10 comments »

I’ve had these chisels for about a month now. I made the decision a while back I wanted to start cutting dovetails by hand and wanted an upgrade over the Irwin chisels I picked up at home depot a few years back. First thing I noticed was how light they are in your hand. They really feel like I’m holding a pencil not a piece of steel. That being said they are tough chisel. Out of the box they were pretty sharp and I was playing around with them and I was paring some end grain white...

folding table

folding table

02-17-2008 01:43 AM by KDL | 2 comments »

I was inspired to post this review after seeing Groovemadman’s very slick project post of a knock down sawhorse/bench ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/5298 ). This table is just a Lifetime brand 2’x4’ folding plastic table that I bought at Sam’s. It is very portable, easy to store, reasonably rugged, and just a little wobbly along the 4’ side. And, of course, useful for everything a table is useful for. But here’s the real trick for me. This table i...
