Baileigh WBS-14

Baileigh WBS-14

06-13-2013 07:01 AM by NH_bigben | 14 comments »

I’m new to LumberJocks but recently won the Baileigh sponsored contest at woodworkingtalk. I’ve read many reviews on this site and thought I would contribute my thoughts on the Baileigh WBS-14 that I selected as the grand prize. I made a video review to go along with this written review. Packaging: The band saw was well packed and arrived without damage. The crating is sturdy and there’s plenty of filler foam to keep the saw from moving in the crate. The WBS-14 includes:...

Accidental Work Bench

Accidental Work Bench

07-14-2014 09:28 PM by whope | 10 comments »

I had bought this kitchen cart when living in Brussels. It wasn’t needed here in the US so it ended up, like so many other un-wanted things, in my shop. I have a very small shop and I pine for the day I have a shop large enough to fit a decent sized work bench. For now, I have found this kitchen table (39L x 17W x 35H) to exactly what this shop needed. It’s the right height to work as an out-feed table. It has two slide-through drawers where I store my owner’s manuals....

Surprisingly Good

Surprisingly Good

Black & Decker tools suck. That’s the general consensus from woodworkers the world over. After my Firestorm circular saw couldn’t rip a piece of 4/4 pine, I tend to agree. However, the Workmate is the exception. This sweet little puppy is just the ticket for a new woodworker. In one little package, you get a workbench, a vise, and even saw horses. It’s fairly easy to assemble, but the instructions could be better. In an effort to put as few steps as possible on ...

Expected more, but They are good enough.

Expected more, but They are good enough.

I got the MHG 6 Bench Chisels set. For the market price of $110 I expected these to be of somewhat higher quality than the “big store” economy sets. The FeelThey actually feel lighter then the (english) rubber handle Marples I have, and the blade seems slightly thinner. other then that, they do feel very comfortable to hold, and work with. the handle is round, but flattened out on both sides, which keeps it from rolling around the workbench, and falling off the floor… ...

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

03-01-2009 06:20 AM by trifern | 32 comments »

The Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe is an enticing machine based on it’s price point, horse power, and features. I would not recommend it. Don’t get me wrong, I have made some fairly nice pieces on it. However, I wish I had never purchased it. In one year I have replaced the belt around 10 times, replaced all bearings, replaced the tool rest, and replaced the tail stock hand wheel twice. The tail stock and head stock do not align, it vibrates, and is noisy.

Bosch 5412L/T4B Combo Makes The Cut

Bosch 5412L/T4B Combo Makes The Cut

08-07-2009 01:31 AM by CanuckGal | 14 comments »

It might not seem right for a person such as myself to be reviewing and rating a compound miter saw because I don’t have a lot of experience with them or many different models. But I think it’s suffice to say if a novice can buy and assemble one of these and use it within minutes of setup AND make dead on accurate cuts and miters then the saw almost speaks for itself. This is true of the Bosch 5412L 12” Sliding Dual Compound Miter Saw and Bosch T4B Gravity Rise Miter Saw ...

an excellent design book for intermediate woodworkers

an excellent design book for intermediate woodworkers

01-07-2010 05:26 PM by bent | 3 comments »

being that i’m a self taught woodworker, i love reading woodworking books. this one is to date, by far the best one i’ve come across. i picked it up at the local library, but i’m buying my own copy as soon as i take it back. there seem to be two types of books out there: step by step instructions/tutorials, and picture/gallery books. this book is the perfect balance for someone like myself that doesn’t build from plans and already has a grasp on the techniques invo...

Senco quality

Senco quality

02-04-2011 02:10 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 3 comments »

I heard a while back that Senco went through some kind of financial troubles, so I was leery to buy this gun. That said, I’ve been using Senco nailers and staplers at work for years and I have been consistently impressed with the quality of their guns as well as the user-friendly direction the guns have gone to in the last 5 years. I nabbed this one on sale for $200 bucks at CPO brand new. I wanted a framer for the same reason anyone in their right mind wants a framing nailer, to build ...

A Quality Square

A Quality Square

06-09-2011 09:57 PM by brtech | 7 comments »

I’ve been trying to score a Starrett 4” double square on Ebay for a couple of months. I use a snipe service and have bid around $35 on any reasonable item, adjusting based on shipping charges and condition. Lost out on at least a dozen. The going rate is $45+. I scored a 12” combo square with the protractor head and the regular head for $39, but couldn’t get a plain double square. This one is $36.50 new. It’s a bit much, but not bad. It’s very nice...
