Triton TTS1400 Track saw

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

08-12-2015 07:27 PM by Nicky | 4 comments »

Just to put this review into perspective I’d like to say that I’ve used it to break down 5 sheets of plywood and trim two door. This is not a comprehensive review just some thoughts to share. My 32 year old skillsaw has finally given up. It spent many years cutting through 2x lumber and plywood/osb. For the past 5 years I was just using to break down plywood to more manageable pieces. I’ve really looked hard at the Festool but I have a difficult time justifying the cost. I’m a hobbyist. ...

ROCKLER - DRILL PRESS FENCE KIT - ITEM #53648

ROCKLER - DRILL PRESS FENCE KIT - ITEM #53648

10-10-2015 10:41 AM by kdc68 | 3 comments »

This was an impulse buy because I didn’t really need to replace the fence I made with the table top. But I knew that this would be a good upgrade. Instantly I am impressed with this. The anodized aluminum fence is perfectly square. My shop vac hose is a snug fit onto the dust port, and I do like the sliding fences (features that my old one didn’t have). This fence fit on my existing table without any modifying. It’s a bit pricey, but worth it for me as this is an u...

Not just a pen lathe

Not just a pen lathe

11-24-2015 01:57 AM by Woodmaster1 | 1 comment »

I purchased this lathe at Johnson’s lumber wood expo in Sept. I can’t tell you how much needed to be assembled as I got the last one and it was the show model. I just completed turning a segmented bowl and it worked great. It did slow down if I got too aggressive but as long as watched that no problems. So far I have turned several Christmas ornaments, 3 lidded bowls, and two segmented bowls. The lathe has performed great. I added the bed extension and the fit was ok but needed to...

Making Good Box Joints Easily and Repeatable

Making Good Box Joints Easily and Repeatable

02-09-2016 07:16 PM by Kelly | 1 comment »

I’ve been woodworking, both professionally and as a hobbyist, since 1974. Over those years, my appreciation of the value of jigs has continued to increase. For example, using a circle cutting jig on my band saw allowed me to cut precision circles ranging from a couple inches to three feet in diameter. Box joints, or finger joints, make for strong joints and can add aesthetic value to a project. Laying out multiple box joints, individually cutting them and getting good, tight joints t...

A Great New Addition To My Shop

A Great New Addition To My Shop

Manufacturer: Grizzly Industrial, Inc.Model: Grizzly G0513P – 17” 2 HP Bandsaw, Polar Bear SeriesModel: Shop Fox G7314Z – Heavy-Duty Mobile BaseCost: $895 and $74.95 Overview First a note about this “review”. This is more of an informational post, not so much of a review as I have not owned a bandsaw before, and therefore have nothing to compare it to. Having a bandsaw in the shop opens a completely new avenue of possibilities in the way wood is cut: ev...

 Woodpeckers OneTIME Tool® - One Piece T-Square: TS-3

Woodpeckers OneTIME Tool® - One Piece T-Square: TS-3

08-18-2016 05:43 PM by cmmyakman | 2 comments »

I have three favorite tools in my shop and the TS-3 is one of them. The other two favorite tools are an after market glue container (FastCap Glu-Bot Glue Bottle (16 Ounces) available on Amazon) and my Saw Stop table saw. Woodpeckers is one of my favorite tool suppliers. I really enjoy their squares, triangles and the table saw set-up gauge (http://www.woodpeck.com/sawgauge.html). I also have a router lift (Sidewinder) that Woodpecker doesn’t make anymore (it has a crank on the side)...

Great content, easily sidetracked

Great content, easily sidetracked

09-27-2016 05:21 PM by Rick M | 7 comments »

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. Previously I reviewed the 360 Woodworking podcast. Shop Talk Live is a twice monthly, 1 hour, podcast by Fine Woodworking’s Tom McKenna, Mike Pekovich, Matt Kenney (It seems they switch this up once in awhile). Mostly they answer listener questions but also have guests and talk about the magazine and woodworking trade shows. I’ve been a listener s...

SawStop customer service fail becomes big success

SawStop customer service fail becomes big success

02-23-2017 04:24 PM by leftcoaster | 66 comments »

UPDATE SawStop came through as a result of this post and while the sales team was initially flummoxed (“this is unprecedented. I will have to get back to you.”) when I called about Mr. Gass’ gracious offer, they did come through and I am happily using my overarm dust collector. Cut some MDF yesterday and performance was excellent. Many thanks to SawStop – I look forward to using your product for many years to come. I bought a sawstop PCS 3hp last week. Today I recei...
