Worth every penny

I bought this machine to replace a Delta 14” bandsaw equipped with riser blocks. That no longer could produce the power I needed. Lets get the the bad news done frist. Yes, this saw is made in China…...Don’t let that scare you. Yes, this saw cost a lot….But, you get what you pay for. Set up was easy. All I had to do was, mount the table, and the motar. The hardest part of the job was getting it off the palet it came on. Installing the motar was tricky, only because ...

Kreg Shelf Pin Jig

Kreg Shelf Pin Jig

The Kreg Shelf Pin Jig is an excellent jig to add your woodworking collection.  I’ve done the “make your own” pegboard type of jig.  The problem is you cut it down to size and it seems like you never get it right the first time.  When you do finally get it right it still feels a little off when you’re finished.  Anyone who has the done pegboard thing will know how it can be a pain to do(and no I’m talking about those crazy smart never make a mistake woodworke...

I have to agree

I just received my Grizzly $140 router table and its all I could ask for after having tried to make my own router table and ending up with a bowed/warped tabletop with no fence. The black powder coated lets and braces were stuck to the paper inserts meant to keep the pieces apart, but I think that is a minor complaint given the value of the overall package. Once put together, I now have a fully functional router table with fence and insert plate. Assembly was very easy. Although it lo...

I bought this sander a year ago and wish I had purchased one years ago. this machine saves hours worth of hand sanding. the only problem I have with it is the feed belt tracking. I have to adjust it after a few hours of use but it is a simple chore to readjust

I have owned many bandsaws, this is the only bandsaw that has ever met my expectations. Just make sure you upgrade to the timberwolf blades, like night and day.

Excellent accuracy for such a cheap saw. Not such a great blade.

The Black and Decker Firestorm line was a Lowes specific line of tools that was discontinued at the end of 2008. With some of the product offerings pulling them from the market was a good thing to do (I will post a review of the router later), but with some of their offerings, hobbyist woodworkers, and home improvement DIY’ers got left out in the cold. I purchased my FS1000L on sale in January of 2008, and it has seen extensive use since the purchase. The stand (not included, separat...

Not bad, until you use something better

Not bad, until you use something better

This was my first major tool purchase about 5 or 6 years ago. It was a whopping $100 from Lowes. At the time, I thought that was a lot of money! This saw has some limitations: The miter gauge slot is not standard, so you can’t upgrade to a better one. The table is very small The insert is just a thin piece of metal, which will make it hard to create an insert. I found the fence to be surprisingly good. When I lock it down, it doesn’t slip, and it locks down at ...

My Nightmare with Laguan Tools

My Nightmare with Laguan Tools

1565 days ago by Caleb James | 39 comments »

I recently purchased a 16” jointer planer combo and 18” 3000 Series Bandsaw from Laguna Tools. It has turned into my worst nightmare. I have spent $6,245.83 on this order. It arrived damaged and I properly noted it on the freight bill. I contacted laguna about the most obvious damage to the band saw. The upper flywheel had come apart in shipping. I rebuilt it and it seems to work fine now. My nightmare starts really with the jointer. In short this machine should edge join using the fence, ...

I have been wanting to purchase or at least use one of these for a while now. I went to the Woodcraft Octoberfest, they had a demo station for the whole set, and a discount. I tried them and decided this would work very well for the inside of the lamp shades I am making as Christmas presents this year. If it weren’t for that project I would never have been able to pull the trigger on such a pricey tool. I am impressed, even when I did have catches, there was no real damage done to t...

Great little stand for my Bandsaw Station

Great little stand for my Bandsaw Station

1287 days ago by patcollins | 3 comments »

I wanted a support for my benchtop bandsaw and have been mulling the idea of making one until I came across this. For $28 it was a great deal from Harbor Freight. It is adjustable height but is a bit short for me for most things (Im 6’4”), b ut for my bandsaw I thought it would be perfect. It came with middle and bottom shelving material that was very flimsy hardboard, I’m talking so thin the box was stronger. I made new shelves out of some 3/4” particle board. ...
