Sorry, but I 've been busy

Sorry, but I 've been busy

I have to smile with all of the comedians out there….but keep your day jobs….Sorry about no pics, and the skimpy review, but I’ve been really busy getting my boat ready for the upcoming bass tournament season, and the first warm sun makes me run to the river and check lines…..lol I have taken a lot of shop pictures this week, and I just completed a japanese study table made with a tree that I cut down in my backyard last year, so for all of the bandsaw enthusiasts, ...

Dust Deputy works like a charm

Dust Deputy works like a charm

09-21-2009 02:12 AM by RockyTopScott | 13 comments »

Just picked up my DD today at the local Woodcraft store. Was not sure what to expect…only watched the online video as well as the reviews here and at other sites. Put it together per instructions, hooked it up to my old Ridgid 4.5 hp wet-dry vac and “POW”...it worked much better than expected. It was like adding a supercharger to my vac…cleaned up alot of sawdust on the floor and inside my TS cabinet in no time flat. I plan on getting a new 6.5 shop vac soo...

Nice job but it takes time

Nice job but it takes time

07-12-2011 10:54 PM by RexMcKinnon | 12 comments »

I bought this product because I thought it would improve the look of the pool deck I am building and although I am not finished yet I think it has. The whole purpose of the jig is too allow the user to screw down decking without showing the screw and that’s exactly what it did. My decking is made from 5/4 pressure treated boards. There are 10 joists each spaced 16 on centers and there are 2 screws per joist which gives 20 screws per board. To boards feel as if the are held down well. I ...

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

My wife has been interested in woodworking for awhile, but didn’t want to mess with the “big machines,” but was interested in scroll sawing. The DeWalt and Hawk units were too expensive for a “trial” period, so we looked for a moderately-priced unit. Reading the great reviews on LJ led us to take a chance on the P-C PCB370SS. Fortunately, we were lucky and got a good one. It does a great job with a little vibration and I agree the dust removal and attached...

Wow, I am stunned and ticked off all at the same time. I have owned a Ridgid band saw and drill press for almost 10 yrs. The DP has been stellar without a single issue. I actually have the much maligned Ridgid orange BS and I have it tuned up wonderfully and also love it. Due to these two tools I have added to my Ridgid collection. I have their combo shop vac/blower and also love it. Also, orange is my favorite color. :-) Now the sadness… I had a 4330 planer that I bought fr...

Magnogrip Quick Snap Magnetic Tape Measure Holder...Redesign is MUCH BETTER !!!

If you read my first review I was much under-impressed with the actual design of the belt clip.Magnogrip corporation responded to my complaint and shipped me a redesigned belt clip.I put it on my jeans workbelt that afternoon and was impressed with its tenacity…I actually COULDN’T get the clip off without taking the belt off. Today I wore it most of the day in the shop and around the house even though I didn’t do any real measuring just to get a feel for it. The clip is P...

Grizzly Jointer/Planer Combo w/ Spiral Cutterhead

Grizzly Jointer/Planer Combo w/ Spiral Cutterhead

01-31-2014 11:34 PM by Matthew | 15 comments »

I recently purchased this machine, as a replacement for my Jet 8 inch jointer planer combo machine. Here’s my thoughts so far. Background:As stated above, I bought this machine as an upgrade to my 8 in Jet combo machine. This came as a necessity when I began working on building a traditional style workbench, and found the long and heavy slabs to be way too big for the small machine to handle, specifically for the planer function of the machine.I went back and forth on whether to get ...

Powerful little shop vacuum!

Powerful little shop vacuum!

02-29-2008 08:09 AM by Hawgnutz | 1 comment »

This little shop vac is a key player in my fight against dust and debri in my shop. While I use the larger 12 gallon Ridgid shop vac as my primary dust collection for my router, bandsaw and drill press, this one has a flexibiliity that allows me to move it from machine to machine indoors. Its 2 1/2” hose plugs directly into most machine’s 2 1/2” dust collection ports. Its light weight allows me to easily carry this outdoors when I sand, use my planer, jointer or portable...

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

04-01-2009 02:57 PM by littlecope | 3 comments »

It being April Fool’s Day, I couldn’t resist reviewing this old dandy! The restaurant I worked at in 1999 was housed in an 1800’s built brick factory building. My Parents say that when they were young it had been a meat packing and processing plant and in the basement there were tracks and hooks for transporting sides of beef and what not. Also in the basement was a corner that was devoted to a small carpenter’s shop and it was there that I found this baby collecting d...
