Delta 78-963 Biesemeyer T-Square Anti Kickback Snap in Splitter -Not what it should be

Delta 78-963 Biesemeyer T-Square Anti Kickback Snap in Splitter -Not what it should be

01-31-2013 11:46 PM by mrg | 12 comments »

I bought this back in December thinking it would be a good replacement since I did not have the factory splitter on my saw. The thought was lets make it safer until I buy my new saw. I had read many mixed reviews on the splitter and figured that maybe the bad reviews had to do with how people had been installing the splitter. It is just like any other splitter that you find on the uni-saw and the later contractor saws that have been discontinued. I got it home unboxed it, removed the ol...

Prestige plane on a bargain budget....

Prestige plane on a bargain budget....

07-27-2013 11:59 PM by Benvolio | 6 comments »

This range of planes is currently being sold in the UK by Rutlands and Workshop Heaven. It is the understated half brother of the acclaimed Wood River planes sold on the other side of the Atlantic. Made, as I understand it in the same factory, but tweaked to different specifications according to the badge that’s put on it, and the shop that sells it. The heart of this plane is the pre-tensioned steel body. A happy evolution of the old cast iron plane bodies of yore, the steel one ...

Wanted to do a quick review of the grizzly 10 inch wet grinder. I got the anniversary edition about a month ago, and have been very pleased with the results. Pros:Grinds, hones, and polishes wellVery happy with the polishing leather wheelVery good and repeatable results Cons:Jig is hard to square up, but is still useable Cannot flatten or polish blade backs unlike the tormek.Angle jig can be confusing at firstCould be better at catching water off wheel sides Overall, I would recommen...

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

01-06-2015 08:28 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

As usual, I’ll give you a teaser and you can check out the rest of the review on my blog. Here’s the gist. For 95% of woodworkers out there this saw is it. It’s a feature packed saw that does a lot of stuff well but falls just a little short in others. For the price, you can’t beat it. I really wanted to absolutely love with saw and have no faults with it, but since it’s a sliding miter saw there is going to be some amount of play. The slop that was in ...

Excellent Joinery System

Excellent Joinery System

When I was designing one of my first projects (Router Cabinet) I came across this pocket hole system and its awesome and forms extremely strong joints. The kit comes with everything you need to create a somewhat hidden joint, especially when you use the Kreg Plugs. If you build frames for anything from cabinets to pictures this method is awesome.

Relief for my aching joints.

Relief for my aching joints.

Well, while I refuse to grow up, I must admit, I am growing older. My knees and my feet are complaining on a regular basis. My concrete floor is cold and hard (duh). My wife and I went to our local BJ’s Wholesale Club (like Sams and Costco) to get a membership. She had gotten a good deal on a membership through Living Social. As we were wandering the aisles, we came upon these floor mats. They come in a packet of 8 – 2 by 2 squares for a total of 32 square feet for I think @ $1...

Powerful 18 Volt Cordless Drill/Driver with Lifetime Warranty!

02-29-2008 07:49 AM by Hawgnutz | 16 comments »

Right now, February, 2008, Ridgid is phasing out its line of NiCad batery tools and phasing in their new Lithium Ion line. So they are making their tools capable of accepting either style batterys! But that will not make a big difference because they offer a lifetime service for the tool and the batterys that power them! After replacing my Craftsman batterys just last year and having them going south now, I decided top grab a Ridgid tool set while Home Depot has them on clearance sale. I ...
