Pennstate Midi Lathe

Pennstate Midi Lathe

02-15-2009 11:08 PM by interpim | 12 comments »

EDIT: I have now had this lathe for over a year now, and I am still very happy with it. I have now turned bowls, pens, spindles etc… on it, and it has done very well. I still haven’t pulled the trigger on the extension, but to be perfectly honest, I haven’t had a need for an extension yet. I did purchase a barracuda chuck system from PSI, as well as a new set of Benjamin Best lathe chisels. The motor has held up well, and I am still on the first belt that came with it....

Wolfcraft master 200 portable worktable (MaFe review)

Wolfcraft master 200 portable worktable (MaFe review)

Wolfcraft master 200 portable worktableTesting it on a simple tool box build in Paris… Ok The story goes that my fiancé lives in Paris (Caroline – she is French), and a genuine Lumber Jerk needs a place to hammer, even when he is there. So of to the beloved BHV in the center of Paris, they have a Wolfcraft 200 at a price of 50 Euro.And it can be brought home on my unisex bicycle, even I must admit the Paris traffic and a load like this are a little like oil and water. Wolfcraft maste...

Finest out of the box machine I've ever owned.

Finest out of the box machine I've ever owned.

As soon as I opened the box, I could tell Delta really put forth an effort to release a quality product. Much more Styrofoam than I am use to, making the box for this unit is very big. Everything was very well organized and in very good condition. Fit and finish was the best I have seen on a sub 1000.00 piece of equipment. Everything took about 20 minutes to assemble (including removing it from the box). Assembly consisted of placing the Live Center and Spur Center in the lathe and setting...

Smooth action, nice LJ sized grip, substantial body, large advancing eraser.

Pencils are one of those humble things in the shop, used constantly, abused, cursed, misplaced, and achieve no recognition. Bet they feel unloved. Well I have been using Pentel automatic pencils for probably 20 years or more. And it came time to replace my aged, goto, automatic pencils. They had been dropped once to many times on the concrete floor. There was one or two generations of the Pentels between my old beaters, and the new fangled ones I just bought. But nothing was very exciting ...

I’m the type of guy that looks at something forever before actually buying it. The plunge base for my Bosch Colt trim router is no different. Thankfully I have a wife that works hand-in-hand with Santa and together they made the choice for me. Out of the box, the plunge base’s fit and finish is spot on and the feel is solid and comfortable in the hand. I immediately took it out to the shop for a test run on a project I’m working on. The motor slides into the plunge ba...

Excellent Saw On a budget

Excellent Saw On a budget

12-30-2014 07:11 PM by edwood1975 | 11 comments »

Well what can I say, my wife bought me this saw for Christmas and she did an awesome job. I really like the size of the saw 10” is just what I need, also the Laser Trac system is extremely helpful.It came with a 10” 40tooth saw blade that does a great job, but if you are planning on doing detailed finished work I would get another blade. I built a mitre saw cart and all in all I couldn’t be happier./!

5th day with the New G0733

5th day with the New G0733

02-19-2015 12:18 PM by Cyrus Fillmore | 5 comments »

I had said in my Blog about the trip to Grizzly that I would post a review after using the new lathe for a bit. Well I have wasted no time. I have already been on it about 15 hours in five days. But a little history first. I have owned and used 7 lathes over the past 25 years. They have all been Step pulley or Reeves drive machines, until I modified the one I was using before I got the new lathe, It I had modified with a treadmill motor and controller, but tread mill motors are NOISY. S...

One of the most important period furniture books published in a long time!

One of the most important period furniture books published in a long time!

06-06-2017 02:53 PM by StumpyNubs | 15 comments »

Read the print review, or watch the video review- your choice! This book has been out quite a while, it was published in 2011. And ever since it has had a home in my woodworking library because it is, in my opinion, one of the most important books about classic furniture to be published in a long time. That’s because the southern style itself has always been grossly underrepresented in the pages of woodworking books. There are shelves full of volumes on the furniture styles of Philadelphia...

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

08-22-2017 08:59 PM by Zoomie | 15 comments »

Turning 60 this year and the little lady read my wish list and I got the cabinet saw I’ve wanted for the past 30 years. Truly a compromise on some level but for me the value is extraordinary given the Grizzly price and the small differences that I as a hobby woodworker will never miss. I actually went to Springfield MO to see it in person and am glad I did. The saw was outstanding but the mobile base was awkward and not very mobile . . . but I needed it to be. Grizzly shipping and U...
