Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

09-05-2012 06:34 PM by AJswoodshop | 7 comments »

I’m working on a bathroom and I needed to cut some tile. I wanted something that wasn’t really pricey, so I went with this HF central machinery tile/wet saw. The saw has a few problems, but for the price I’m very happy. The main problem was, that water will splash out of the saw, if you don’t have the blade guard on. With the blade guard on it’s hard to see where your cutting. Its a bench top tool, I used my scroll saw stand, just so I wouldn’t have to use ...

Rockler Jig It Drill Guide - Video Review

Rockler Jig It Drill Guide - Video Review

07-05-2013 03:49 PM by Daris | 2 comments »

If you don’t have a drill press, (or even if you do) the Jig It Drill Guide by Rocker is a great little jig. For those who don’t have a drill press but want to use forstner bits; the drill guide helps keep your power drill steady allowing for more precise holes. For those who do have a drill press there are certain times when it’s just not possible to use it. I needed to drill some bench dog holes into my workbench. I wanted to use a forstner bit with my power drill. The Jig It Drill G...

A really nice saw and great value,  good way to get into pull saws

A really nice saw and great value, good way to get into pull saws

01-22-2014 04:30 PM by Mainiac Matt | 10 comments »

After watching with great interest the enthusiasm out there for Japanese pull saws I decided I’d like to try one. But I was quickly overwhelmed by the variety, terminology and prices. The Shark saws looked interesting, but I was turned off by the plastic handles and thought they would be a disappointment….... boy was I wrong. When given an Amazon gift card back in 2012, I saw I had two Shark saws in my wish list and came back to the idea. For the low price, I figured I co...

Most useful literature in my shop, easily.

Most useful literature in my shop, easily.

02-27-2008 07:23 AM by USCJeff | 9 comments »

While this is not a tool, this book has earned its spot as one of my most useful assets in my shop. After posting numerous threads that requested help from the more experienced Jocks, I was told that Flexner’s book was the “Bible” of finishing. While I laughed at that, it turned out to be the case. In the last several months since the purchase, I have yet to have a finishing question that wasn’t explained in detail within the pages. My favorite feature is the indiv...

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

08-31-2009 09:52 AM by velocette | 5 comments »

I have the 3 1/4 HP Triton router and over time have been reading the reviews and note the main complaint is the under the table adjustment. In Australia where the Triton company started there is a large range of wood working accessories. The Triton router table provided easy access to the ratchet winder and the fine adjuster, there is also a dust collector bucket that has two inputs one for the table and one for the router and the bucket is attached via another hose to a vacuum cleaner. I...

1/4" drill bit extenders that work

1/4" drill bit extenders that work

05-09-2010 05:21 AM by Bob #2 | 8 comments »

Over the years I’ve probably purchased a half dozen different quarter-inch bit extensions all of which have failed for one reason or another. Either thay were too long or too short or too wobbly or just plain junk and end up frustrating me every time I attempted to use them. This morning I went out to check a couple of vendors that supply these devices to see if there were any improvements. The first store I checked had a set five but they were sealed in plastic and the sales clerk ...

Another of my shop favorites

Another of my shop favorites

Accuracy, reliability, & quality; I received this a a Christmas present but have not had a lot of shop time until this fall. I love using this square on my projects and when setting up my machinery. The scale is very easy to read, the head slides easily along the length of the rule and it is about the easiest to put back on when you take it off as I sometimes do. Is it expensive? Yes, but I feel it’s worth every penny.

A must have tool

A must have tool

02-12-2011 07:07 PM by steliart | 8 comments »

A very handy and true square. The locking mechanism could be of a better quality as the ruler slides with a bit difficulty on it and locks not so easily the spring lock mechanism is not so good. Other than that is a must have tool. Due to its locking problem and besides that is a great tool I will give it only 3 stars. Axminster’s Description: This is a gem of a square, nicely made and very versatile. With a stock length of 62mm (2.1/2”) and a blade length of 100mm (4”) it is j...

Like going from a Pinto to a Mustang

Like going from a Pinto to a Mustang

07-05-2013 10:58 PM by Kobra | 7 comments »

Before I begin my review of the Grizzly TS, my previous TS was a cheap Craftsman. So please keep that in mind as you read my review. Purchasing decision: Before I purchased the 1023RLW, I did my research on the various types of table saws out there. I considered the Bosch 4100 but it was no bigger than my Craftsman. I also considered the Rigid R4512 and Porter-Cable PCB270. The Rigid’s split fence rail design turned me off completely although many say it’s not that big of a ...
