It's Super for a Reason

It's Super for a Reason

My purchase of the Super Dust Deputy was inspired by the results of using my [metal version] Dust Deputy and Dust Gorilla. I’m running a Jet four bagger (3 HP dust collector with after market one micron bags) and use it, instead of a vacuum, to clean my shop floor, and around equipment. Screws, nails, nuts, bolts, pieces of wood and even an occasional tool get picked up in the course of cleaning. Normally, everything is drawn through the impeller blades. When chips and other large...

Quality saw right out of the box

Quality saw right out of the box

02-28-2016 01:10 AM by edwood1975 | 4 comments »

I was replacing a Craftsman Miter saw for a better sliding version amd I stuck with Craftsman becaise the other saw was perfect until I stsrted working with wider boards and was tires off setting up the crosscut slet on my TS. Anyway I like this model for the following reasons..1. It was on sale and got this $300 saw for $207.2. Its a quick learning curve from owning a non sliding miter saw to a sliding model.3. The saw came with a 60 tooth blade that is great for hitting the ground runnin...

powermatic PM-701, works great for me

powermatic PM-701, works great for me

03-29-2016 02:39 PM by kennymac | 13 comments »

Here’s my very first review, it’s about time I started giving back on this site. I’m building a four drawer chest that I’m working on through the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop. Actually I’m building two chests, one in the class and the other one is a copy I’m making at home. This is a big step up for me, and I’m finding building the second one at home is requiring me to purchase some tools. Enter the powermatic PM701 mortiser. I was in need o...

New Jointer

New Jointer

07-07-2016 12:10 PM by TigerTed | 14 comments »

Jointer was delivered into my garage 5 days after ordering. That included the weekend and 4th of July holiday. I did pay for the lift gate service. Packaging was very good and in great shape. Broke down easy for recycling. Assembly was very straight forward. I did start off using jacks and jack stands to get top close to installed height. Turned out to be waste of time. Friend and myself easily picked up the top to put on the stand. Table checks with a 3’ Starrett showed the ...

Rigid R2400 Trim Router

Rigid R2400 Trim Router

09-30-2016 12:21 AM by Wildwoods | 27 comments »

I am rather peeved about this router and Rigid’s policy regarding standing behind their product. Okay, I didn’t immediately register the router after I bought it. If you register, they offer a lifetime warranty. If you don’t register it is three years. I didn’t register. Out of the box, it never worked right. I thought maybe I missed something and besides I had a Ryobi that has lasted me at least 15 years which I had as a back-up – I thought. I kind of forgot ab...

Decisions, decisions...

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. The JET 10” hybrid saw I bought new about 17 years ago has served me well, but I wanted to take advantage of some of the advancements in table saw design that have occurred since then. There were two major developments in table saws that I was adamant about having on my new saw. The first was a riving knife. Not merely a splitter, but a true riving knife that raises, lowers, and tilts with the blade. Back when I bought my JET, riving knives wer...

What I don’t like1. The fence guides suck .. the rail that guides the fence is forever out of alignment at least every month I have going underneath the front rail and tightening the nuts. I don’t like that the...

About the Little Things

There are a lot of Sawstop reviews both here on LJ’s and on Youtube and other places. Everyone says that it is a quality item and has the infamous safety feature. I’ve only had my new Saw for a couple of weeks and made a few dozen cuts with it and you already know about the saw in general having seen the hotdog videos I’m sure, but there’s more to point out. Some companies have a different philosophy. What comes to mind are companies like Tesla. Get the best enginee...

06-19-2008 12:07 AM by teenagewoodworker | 3 comments »

Another great DVD. this sugar chest DVD is jam packed with so much woodworking knowledge on the sugar chest that Charles Neil is passing on to us. It is a 4 DVD set and goes through every little detail. the good the bad and the ugly. it goes through everything from lumber selection, to milling, construction, and the finished product. As i stated earlier this DVD does really show the good, bad, and ugly. as Charles always says he’s going to show everything and even on a couple of small m...
