Cheap, but works very well

01-22-2010 02:42 AM by funchuck | 8 comments »

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...

Excellent Hans Karlsson Drawknife From Country Workshops

Excellent Hans Karlsson Drawknife From Country Workshops

05-26-2010 03:57 AM by Caleb James | 14 comments »

I recently purchased a $235 drawknife with leather cover from Country Workshops after being totally disappointed using a LeeValley carving drawknife that was $65. This drawknife on the other hand was exactly what I wanted. It was worth every dime. I couldn’t be more pleased. I have never used a tool that said it was honed ready for use and it was actually true. It holds and unbelievable edge. The steel is just awesome. This tool looks very common but don’t let it fool you. I used ...

So far....What a Disappointment.

So far....What a Disappointment.

11-01-2010 05:04 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 6 comments »

About near two decades ago, I purchased a Dowel-it 1000 which I’ve used almost on every other project.It was made in USA and 100% accurate. And it’s held up to a half a dozen drops and what have you with just slight calibration after all these years. Awesome jig. Behold the new so called USA made dowel-it 2100. it has a 6 inch capacity and Two removable bushing screws with 1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8” sizes two each. and the 7/16 and 1/2 are permanent. I purchased this for a pro...

Senco pc1010 air compressor

Senco pc1010 air compressor

02-25-2011 09:17 AM by phtools | 9 comments »

OK, a little play on words there, but the truth is that this small compressor is great.Know what you are buying, and then rate it from that point of view. I’ve seen people here say that this Senco is too small, lacks enough reserve air so it doesn’t keep starting to recycle, and all sorts of other comments which show they have no idea of what they are talking about. You don’t buy a Prius, or a Smart Car, to use as a tow truck, and you don’t buy a small compressor like ...

Dadoing

Dadoing

07-17-2011 02:49 AM by navtalk | 5 comments »

Please don’t be too concerned with my 3 STAR evaluation, I had to put something there and haven’t had the opportunity to use the saw. I am getting ready to start my first project, by the time I am through, I will be ready to give it a better/worse rating. I just purchased this R4510 Ridgid. I like it so far but it does have some irritating points. Trying to find a zero clearance insert for the standard blade and a dado blade is a lesson in futility. I finally had to make my own...

H7507 Router Extension Table for Table Saw

H7507 Router Extension Table for Table Saw

04-03-2012 11:34 PM by Pie | 10 comments »

With birthday approaching and my wife asking me what i wanted…..I jumped on this for my t-saw. Installing this by yourself is very doable, but is a bit frustrating. Being cast iron, the surface is very flat, even and the two inserts provided are made of metal (not plastic). I had to make my own fence which was easy enough even without the instructions in the manual. I’ve only used the router extension twice and everything worked as advertised. Grizzly continues to make excellent p...

A really nice drill driver set!

A really nice drill driver set!

02-03-2014 03:22 AM by Mainiac Matt | 13 comments »

Though my 15 year old 12 volt Porter Cable cordless drill is still alive and kicking (on a rebuilt battery pack) I really wanted an impact driver. After doing my research and having opportunity to try several different models at work, I was all set to pull the trigger on the white series Makita18 v LI drill driver set. When a good special was going on at HD just before Christmas, I went down to buy the set, but then stumbled across another great price on the DeWalt 20 vmax set. The specs...

Craftex 18" bandsaw review

Craftex 18" bandsaw review

02-29-2008 02:23 PM by Bob #2 | 28 comments »

My new 18” 2 hp bandsaw on a mobile base.The upper wheel assembly is mounted to a channel steel support doing away with the older style castings. The safety switch as well as the power switch are mounted at waist height for easy accessibility. The table is about 3 inches lower than that of my old 14” bandsaw making it more comfrtable to use for “certain ” people around my shop. The aluminum fence is mounted on ball bearings and clamps down with one hand li...

Top Saver works as advertised

This is an excerpt from my blog posting about restoring my Unisaw. I thought it worked as a review. You can read the original/view the original post HERE. I would have given the product 5 stars except that while it worked much better than I expected in reality it is only as good as the amount of elbow grease you use with it. Enjoy! Where da hail did you get those glasses? You look like yo Aint Bea in Shreveport. Scrubbing away. .Top Saver first pass Top Saver 3 Honey! Top Save...

Disposable supplies

Disposable supplies

01-23-2010 06:45 PM by rustfever | 15 comments »

For some time, I tried to find something to use when working with small amounts of glues or finishing supplies. A sign painter friend told me of these ‘Souffle Cup’. We know these as sample cups when we go to the deli and are given a small sample. The cups come in many sizes, from about 1/2 oz to about 4oz and in untreated paper or plastic. The benifit of these cups are several; First, you always have a clean container into which you can put small amounts of various glues, ...
