new slider on site.

07-16-2013 12:47 AM by Shawn Masterson | 10 comments »

We had someone steel the new 10” makita slider and the old turd of a dewalt slider from the jobsite last week. we are trimming out a hotel and have to have the tools on sight so the boss picked up a new dewalt at the BORG. I am a fan of the dewalt. I have used this saw 12 hours a day for the last 5 days and it has probably cut a few miles of trim between the two shifts. it was dead nuts right out of the box. it has performed so well that I told him to pick up another one on his way...

BORK installation and review

BORK installation and review

01-29-2014 04:52 AM by Luke | 10 comments »

I am not very good at filming yet. I realize I messed up with the angle of the camera – This was filmed using my wife’s iPhone 5s (way better camera than my iphone5). I realize I need to learn how to film correctly, plan my dialogue, not ramble, buy a new, actual filming camera and so forth. I didn’t see a review or even a video at all of this newer updated BORK riving knife system and I really think it is a good system, you just can’t be a dummy about the installation...

Despite being kind to me, 4 years of use has been unkind to this compressor

Despite being kind to me, 4 years of use has been unkind to this compressor

09-08-2014 09:10 PM by paxorion | 11 comments »

If there’s one tool I use every time I try to get any woodworking done, it’s my HF air compressor. Everytime I get any woodworking done at home, the first tool I fire up is my compressor. I purchased it on a whim 4 years ago, and was giddy to have pneumatic power for the first time. This bare bones unit has (and continues) to serve it’s duty, driving nails (I have a HF 18 gauge brad nailer/stapler) and blowing compressed air. There isn’t much to say about how well ...

WorkSharp WS3000 Makes Sharpening a Breeze

WorkSharp WS3000 Makes Sharpening a Breeze

01-05-2015 12:41 AM by IHRedRules | 14 comments »

I’ve slowly been getting into woodworking over the last couple years. Since I began purchasing planes and chisels, I would just use them as-is, right out of the box. I had a fear that if I tried to sharpen them, I’d manage to somehow screw them up. Last month when I was in Sears, I found a WorkSharp WS3000 in the clearance section. It was completely sealed in the box and was $109 and change. I finally had a chance to put it to work, so I sharpened a cheap TSC set of chisels f...

I purchased my saw in December and had some vibration problems, that re-tightening all the stand bolts mostly eliminated, but hey this is an $1,800 saw, so since I’m home this week, on Monday I filled out a service ticket on the website and got an email later in the day asking if it was just during slowdown, I said no always when on, a tech called me at 11:00 on Tuesday (yesterday) and had me do some tests with the belt disconnected from the motor and it still vibrated, so he said that ...

Horrible quality, not what I expected from Porter Cable

Horrible quality, not what I expected from Porter Cable

02-25-2015 10:37 PM by drobertson | 15 comments »

I am honestly trying to be fair with this review, but I am extremely frustrated with this scroll saw. In the past I have been a happy owner of many Porter Cable products. At this point I am reluctant to buy any more. About a year ago my wife started to enjoy using the old clunky scroll saw we had to make kids puzzles. She got pretty good at it and now does it as a small side business. Each week she spends about 8-10 hours creating puzzles on the scroll saw for sale at our local farmers ...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

My review is of Oneida’s Dust Deputy. http://www.dustdeputy.com/ I’ve had this addition to my shop vac for a little over a year and it is performing very well. Order/Assembly:I ordered mine online directly from Oneida and it came, unassembled, in a very short amount of time. Ordering was fast and easy. Assembly was quick but did involve silicon sealant. This is placed between the lower canister and the upper cone to create an air tight seal between the parts. It took about 15 min...

Modified MC900 Head

Modified MC900 Head

09-14-2009 07:11 AM by Woodbeatle | 2 comments »

I love the dbhost review and agree with all, The weight on the stand is needed, I have added a mod to the head as per attached photo. This acts as a giant clamp to lock the head to the bed, for turning boxed in access of 100mm diameter, as the head jumps a bit. Yes I know that this stops the head rotation, but it helps to steady the lathe I note that you talk of a manual. Is it possible to get a copy of the MC900 Manual, as I bought my lathe secondhand for A$75.00. I had to make up a few t...

Laguna LT 18 3000

Laguna LT 18 3000

I purchased this saw in 01\10. Heavy brute to move into the shop. Set up was straight forward even if no manual was supplied. There is now a very good video on the Laguna website that provides some helpful setup tips. The factory settings proved to be right on with little or no adjustment.The saw runs quietly with no vibration. The start capacitor failed after about two hours. I received instant attention from the Laguna service people, but someone forgot to mail the part! Arrived today 05/1...

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

02-18-2011 04:23 PM by Steve2 | 7 comments »

Industry and trade shows include steel rolling and other racks for drying painted (sprayed) panels, cabinet doors, or simply flat works products. Typical steel rolling racks cost $200 and upward, require appreciable floor space, particularly if used infrequently making them unsuitable for the hobbyists. The August IWF industry show in Atlanta unveiled a new product that solved this need for the small user. See Erecta-rack.com I have no connection to or vested interest in this company, t...
