skil 6 in grinder

skil 6 in grinder

1952 days ago by kosta | 2 comments »

This grinder is a good grinder to start off with but you need to replace the crappy gray wheels that come with the grinder you should get the white ones with dont wear off as much but other than that it is a nice grinder. A good add on is to build bigger platforms or tools rests because the ones that come with this are not very big for a no. 7 jointer plane blade. This grinder costs about $50.00 and their are things to upgrade but nobody buys a a $2000 cabinet saw and doesnt upgrade the fenc...

Delta 36-714 10-Inch left Tilt Hybrid Saw

Delta 36-714 10-Inch left Tilt Hybrid Saw

1783 days ago by cstrang | 5 comments »

This is a good bang for your buck, when I originally purchased the saw I got it for around $1200, it is a little more pricy today but none the less a good buy. It comes wired for 120 from the manufacturer but when I received it I got my electrician friend to ramp it up to 240, not much that I have in my shop can bog it down now. In my old High school we had a saw just like this one with the sole difference of it being connected to standard 120, I notice a big difference between them, if you h...

THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO THE LAST DROP

THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO THE LAST DROP

If you have ever had rust on something where it shouldnt be… this is the stuff for you! Directions are as simple as submersing your rusted piece in the solution from 30 minutes to as long as you can stand to wait. Evapo-rust has no detectable odor out of the bottle and is a pale yellow color. After i submersed my piece(antique c-clamp) for a few hrs, noticeable progress had been made. I wasnt quite satisfied after the piece hd been submersed after a few hrs, as it was in bad shape, so I...

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

1542 days ago by rhett | 8 comments »

This is a fine set of bits. The quality, workmanship and finish of all my Amana bits has been flawless. Therefore this is not a bad mark about Amana router bits, they are the best you can buy in my opinion. This is however a review of the actual need to have a set of bits like these. I bought this set due to the fact that I have a kitchen on the floor with seven 45 degree corners. Building faceframe cabinets, this equates to 28 faceframe stiles needing a 22.5 degree angle. I assumed t...

Jack Rabbit deluxe - SHIPPING cost

1384 days ago by ken_c | 8 comments »

So I was going to order a Jack Rabbit deluxe direct from Jack Rabbit Tool, so $46 is a fair price from what I can gather but when I went to place the order and i got to the shipping information portion there was one option – Shipping or Not and the price from Washington to Michigan – hold on to you coffee – $31 !!! $31 for a package that can easily go into a $5 USPS standard box – No thank you Jack Rabbit!!! I guess I will just replace my broken well used Rockler I...

Rockler Clamp Racks

Rockler Clamp Racks

556 days ago by Ken90712 | 12 comments »

Like a lot of us on here space is an issue & you can never have Enough Clamps, LOL. I had made this clamp rack back in Dec 09. Sure doesn’t seem that long ago that I made this project. While it was very effective the spacing was a little too wide and not as efficient as I would have liked. Even with the extra beefy hinges there is a little sagging. One day I will rebuild this whole thing out of stronger wood like oak as pine was just what I happened to have extra at the time. Rockler ...

Powermatic 54A 6" Jointer

Powermatic 54A 6" Jointer

2364 days ago by Dale | 3 comments »

I bought this jointer about a year ago as I was building a kitchen table. It has been great! It is very heavy which helps eliminate any vibration. I also bought the mobile base that goes with it – necessary for a small shop like mine. I have run alot of hard maple and red & white oak through the jointer with no problems at all. It is very powerful and does not bog down whith the largest beams run through it. The extra long beds are awesome! They make jointing long boards so much eas...

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

2185 days ago by Tooldads_apprentice | 12 comments »

I bought a starter kit, at my local Home Depot, about a year ago and it is great. The package I bought included A Cordless Drill, A Impact Drill, A Circular Saw, A Radio, A Vacuum, A Reciprocating Saw, and A Sander. I have had only a few problems with it, but for my first set of tools, it is a great set. Problems that I have had include the chuck sticking on the Impact Drill. I wish this kit came with another battery and charger, but I went and bought the extra two batteries and charger. I wo...
