Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

08-14-2015 12:30 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 5 comments »

I needed to increase the cutting capacity of my table saw and last fall I bought a Vega Pro 50 fence system. I originally wanted to get a Biesemeyer, but I really need both my legs and both my arms. My table saw is a Rigid 2424. I wanted to use the fence for a while before writing a review. I have put it through the paces and the following is my take on the fence. Aftermarket fences can be really expensive and may require a good amount of modifications to your table saw. That was not ...

Wood Magazine 3 in 1 bed for all ages -plan

Wood Magazine 3 in 1 bed for all ages -plan

10-13-2015 04:12 PM by Michigander | 5 comments »

I have completed the crib for my first grandson made to the Wood Magazine 3 in 1 crib plans. The plan for the bed itself was well done except it calls for using connector bolts and barrel nut system made by Products America. These are long bolts with a 1/4-20 thread that gets screwed into these little barrel nuts. The good news is I got 6 of the 8 nuts and bolts assembled which took over 3 hours of fiddling in the shop. The last 2 absolutely refuse to assemble. I had my son in law help me and...

Grizzly G0771 Table Saw

Grizzly G0771 Table Saw

11-26-2015 02:02 AM by EMWW | 8 comments »

Overall I am happy with this saw. I will start with the good aspects of it. It has a decent fence and is fairly accurate once set up properly. The motor is powerful enough to do repeated 2 inch thick cuts in white oak. The blade raises and tilts very well. The saw is built heavy enough to make it run smoothly. And it can be set up 120 or 240. Now onto the cons, The dust collection is horrible. Even with the saw hooked strait up to the dust collector the majority of the dust stays in the cabin...

1st. Opinion of grizzly 4 jaw chuck H6267 vicmark (vm100 copy)

1st. Opinion of grizzly 4 jaw chuck H6267 vicmark (vm100 copy)

01-07-2016 08:07 PM by bigJohninvegas | 5 comments »

So this is my early opinion of this grizzly chuck. Mine is the H6267 and has the 1 1/4”X 8tpi adapter included.This chuck is sold under several different part numbers, based on what adapter you need.I had read that it was a close enough copy to the vicmarc vm100, and that the vicmarc jaws would fit it.This grizzly chuck is about half the cost of the vicmarc at $120.00. I have used the chuck 4 or 5 times now with the dove tail jaws that came with it.The chuck does feel a little clunk...

Good saw for a good price

Good saw for a good price

09-29-2010 04:00 AM by cpd011 | 2 comments »

Over the weekend I picked up a new miter saw. I had previously been using a 10 year old Delta 10” single bevel miter saw with an Irwin arbor mounted laser. No knocks against the Delta, it has erved me well but I wanted the larger crosscut capacity and a higher fence. I read every review I could find from this and other websites, and also went and kicked the tires at various stores. I decided on the masterforce because it is virtually identical to the Craftsman Professional 12” sl...

Bigger is not always better

Bigger is not always better

03-12-2012 05:01 AM by Sawdust4Blood | 10 comments »

Sadly this is my one Ridgid tool that has turned out to be a disappointment. I confess that I hate sanding and the thought that a larger, more powerful ROS might get me done sanding sooner may have seduced me into choosing this sander about 18 months ago when my faithful 20 year old Porter Cable gave up the ghost. Unfortunately, when it comes to ROSs, bigger is not always better. This sander is heavy and it’s size makes it cumbersome in many applications as well as being difficult ...

I love mine!!!

I love mine!!!

08-22-2012 06:58 PM by Howarddavidp | 15 comments »

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.

01-20-2013 12:23 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

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...
