This square is the squariest, i mean it.

This square is the squariest, i mean it.

08-11-2012 07:03 AM by CplSteel | 15 comments »

I went ahead and tested all of my squares for square (I lined them up against a very flat surface, drew a line , flipped them and drew another line; I measured for any difference between the distance between the lines over their length). The results: surprise, this one actually was square. Over the 7 inches I could not detect any variance. Other squares were longer, other squares were metal, and all but one (which I tossed) was close enough, but only one was actually square. There are ...

Ridgid Miter Saw stand doesn't disappoint

Ridgid Miter Saw stand doesn't disappoint

01-14-2013 03:18 PM by slopjock78 | 11 comments »

This is my first review, so here we go…... So i was looking to upgrade my miter saw stand from my trusty Ryobi Stand. I have to admit, i was perfectly happy with that stand, and really didnt think I would be upgrading anytime soon. However, the lack of mobility with that stand finally got the better of me. I really like to have my saw very close when i’m casing out doors and windows and moving my Dewalt 10” slider and stand was getting to be too much of a hassle. I ...

Pretty good for the price!

Pretty good for the price!

06-12-2013 08:45 PM by Sodabowski | 13 comments »

So I was tired of my crappy U-frame saw, made of steel tubing, having hacked it as much as I could to improve – that’s a lesser word – the blade locking mechanism. It kept twisting blades on me and they snapped too easily. So I litterally tossed it out and settled to raid eBay, in search for a better saw frame. I had already purchased several times from the Proops Bros, and had noticed they carried a wide array of hardware, all made by themselves in the UK. And so I shell...

I like I-Box

I like I-Box

01-03-2014 06:46 PM by Kerry Drake | 15 comments »

Got the I-Box for Christmas and finished setting it up yesterday. The pictures show my very first test pieces using a 3/8 inch dado stack. Once you understand what’s going on with the jig, it is very easy to use and it gave me near perfect results on my very first test. Set up takes about 15 minutes out of the box, but it comes with a very good set of instructions and a DVD showing the entire process from beginning to end. For me, now, the hardest part about making really good bo...

Rockler customer service rocks

Rockler customer service rocks

07-13-2014 03:25 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

A little history. About 5 years ago I bought a mini bench top router table from Rockler. After two moves and some mishaps the mdf subfences were ruined so I needed new ones. I didn’t want to make my own so I contacted Rockler to see if I could order these parts. Rockler answered my email promptly with the information that they didn’t make that size anymore but that the longer ones for their regular table would fit, but would stick out at the sides a bit. And they asked what m...

Evolution rage Review

Evolution rage Review

02-28-2009 04:46 AM by toolman | 3 comments »

If your like us you might never have heard of the power tool manufacture called Evolution power tools. We tested this bad boy the other day and it is awesome. Lots of power and very easy to control. We cut Rebar, wood with nails, plastic and aluminum. Oh yeah, it was all with one blade. They also offer a diamond blade and we cut through concrete and stone with no problem. The interesting thing about this saw is after we cut the steel, we could work with it right away, it wasn’t ho...

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.

02-04-2011 01:58 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

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...
