Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

01-07-2010 03:40 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

This dado set is the 6 inch version of Freud’s dial-a-width model. There are several things I like about it but, as is often the case, there are trade-offs. The dial-a-width concept means that you do not need any shims. The outer cutter has a mechanism that, effectively, causes the width of that cutter to expand up to 7/64 of an inch in increments of 1/256 of an inch. Using the dial-a-width mechanism in lieu of shims is very convenient. Me and those shims never got along very well....

Not so impressive.

Not so impressive.

I was warned. I was warned every time I went into Woodcraft. Don’t buy Groz! I’ve seen it everywhere online. I’m here to tell you, they are on to something when they say don’t buy Groz. The Groz isn’t a terrible plane, but it isn’t a very good one either. This is actually the only plane I ever received brand new. Every other plane I have is an old Millers Falls or an old Stanley. Out of the box it does not impress. The metalwork is haphazard and I would not...

The sawzall has had some searous abuse and has never stopped working There are only two things ...

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.
