You can make your SketchUp model dance

07-25-2008 05:47 AM by kshipp | 8 comments »

I just got this a few days ago and I love it already. That being said I should probably start with a description before I get questions about how many horsepower this router has or why the sander has a blue light on it. This is a navigation device that is used for 3D graphics programs. I have seen people at work use similar devices but they actually do CAD for a living. I only do SketchUp for fun but this device is amazing. When you move the knob it is exactly like you are moving the objec...

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

03-27-2009 04:08 AM by handi | 6 comments »

If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit. Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. ...

Good for a Black & Decker

Good for a Black & Decker

01-19-2010 10:39 PM by funchuck | 9 comments »

This was my first real drill. I know Black & Decker gets a lot of knocks here, but it really wasn’t too bad a drill. I’ve had this drill for probably 5 years. I’ve done a lot of home improvements with it. This includes: Installation of a new garage door opener Putting up a patio lattice made of all pressure treated lumber (6×8s, 4×8x, 4×4s, 2×6s) Various wood working projects (mostly shelves and storage). I have used it to drill 3...

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

02-21-2011 03:49 AM by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.

Router table fence needs work to reach full potential

Router table fence needs work to reach full potential

11-09-2011 05:44 AM by GregD | 4 comments »

I have had the Woodpecker's Super Fence router table fence for a few years now. I got it as part of a router table/lift/fence/legs package, but I’m not going to review those other items here. My overall assessment is that the fence works very well, but only after what was for me a significant amount of tuning. For the price I thought it should have worked nearly flawlessly out of the box, so I’m only giving it two stars. As you can see from the picture, this is a split fen...

Love the machine/Hate the service

Love the machine/Hate the service

03-29-2012 03:01 AM by ECharles | 13 comments »

So my brand new Hammer A3 31 jointer/planer combo machine was delivered yesterday. I would like to thank everyone that has posted info on their machine here on the forum. A large part of the reason I bought this machine sight unseen was the great reviews. I have to say the reviews were correct this is a great machine. I put it together, took about 3 hrs, including the carrymaster casters. (Again thanks for the great idea, I love them.) This is a one time buy, it is heavy, well made,and the fi...

Grizzly Strikes Again

Grizzly Strikes Again

01-31-2013 02:35 AM by tme4tls | 29 comments »

I have been having trouble breathing this winter while the shop has had the doors and windows closed. Normally, two large drum fans keep a good volume of air going in and out which keeps the dust down. Works well for the warmer months but in the colder months when I have the heat on the dust gets to be a bit much. I thought about an air filter but never got around to ordering one. So, I decided to order a Grizzly G9965 air filter for the shop since they claimed it would change the air in a...

Works well with some limitations

Works well with some limitations

09-14-2014 10:01 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

After Dylan's review of this item as a Rockler sale item ($35 at the moment), I decided to pick one up b/c I thought I was close to buying a jointer off of Cralgslist. The Good:1) Pretty straightforward assembly and adjustability2) Rolls easily3) roll/stationary lever is pretty easy to use and definitely better than the Harborfreight style where one has to screw down the stationary supports when you don’t want it to roll. 4) Everything to assemble it is included The Not So Good:1...

DeWalt - One Great 20" Scroll Saw

DeWalt - One Great 20" Scroll Saw

02-29-2008 01:52 AM by GaryK | 33 comments »

This is the only scroll saw I have ever had so I nothing to compare it to. When researching and looking over many others I don’t think I could have done any better in my choice.This is the only scroll saw that DeWalt makes and with one this good it’s all they need With a throat depth of 20”, it beats out most others on just that. It is heavy at 56 pounds! Very well built.The table tilts 45 degrees both left and right. Tension, power switch and variable speed control ar...
