Took a chance with 12V ...

653 days ago by pendledad | 13 comments »

I was at HD comparing the 18/20V monster DeWalt and Rigid cordless drills and impact drivers. I was looking for an all around good drill/driver kit that I can use in the shop but also around the house for odds and ends. I don’t have any serious construction projects in the foreseeable future, so I didn’t need the 20V power house stuff that can drive 500 3” deck screws into treated lumber. One thing I really liked was the size/weight of the 12V lines. I compared the Milw...

Rikon 8" low speed bench grinder

Rikon 8" low speed bench grinder

156 days ago by ic3ss | 20 comments »

I bought this two days ago from Woodcraft as a replacement for the WoodRiver grinder that had so many problems that Woodcraft stopped carrying it. I just got it taken out of the box and plugged it in and it wouldn’t start. The right wheel contacted the wheel guard and stopped cold. I noticed how the guard was pushed over sideways so far that I couldn’t even turn the wheel past it by hand. I bent it back toward center a bit but it still rubs the wheel. But at least I could turn it ...

CMT 8" Dado Set

CMT 8" Dado Set

2135 days ago by RWR | 17 comments »

I purchased this dado set to help build a free standing router station. Had to make many dado’s and rabbets. I knew my old Sear’s steel set was not up to the task, especially on expensive cabinet grade birch plywood. So after reviewing several sets and finding this set on sale at Amazon it was a no brainer forme. This set gives very flat bottoms and zero chipout on the 3/4” and 1/2” plywood that I was using. It alsohas the 1/16” and 3/32” chippers to co...

Exaktor EXOA-2 Table Saw Overarm Dust Collector

Exaktor EXOA-2 Table Saw Overarm Dust Collector

1630 days ago by Padre | 14 comments »

Finally ordered this and it came today. Here are my observations after putting it together. 1. The package came and was adequately packaged. The outside of the box was damaged, but all the interior items were fine. 2. All the parts were present and accounted for. 3. The directions stink. It gives you some pictures, but mostly you use a trial and error method of putting this together. It took me about 3 hours to put this together, a project that now that I know what to do shou...

Plywood Blade cuts cleanly

Plywood Blade cuts cleanly

962 days ago by HamS | 7 comments »

I installed this blade and made a few test cuts on my saw before starting to cut the birch veneer plywood I am making my laundry cabinets from. I posted three photos: the first the before image of a cut made with my existing general purpose blade in the table saw. The good side was nice and clean but there was significant chipping and tearout of the down side. Picture two is the same piece cut with the new blade. There is a small amount of chipping, but it is much improved. The top side ...

Bosch Variable Speed Orbital

Bosch Variable Speed Orbital

825 days ago by ZLSBOARDWORKS | 6 comments »

To start off this is a great little orbital. I have used others in the past and have found this one to be the best, or the one that I like the most as of lately. I was at one point a really big supporter of the variable speed porter cable orbital, I was able to use them on a daily basis. At the shop we used to really beat the hell out of those sanders, but they never seemed to quite. I mean some of them did but most of the time they just kept on chugging. Only problem with the PC though is th...

Great First Bench Stone

Great First Bench Stone

325 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Picture 1: the back of the stone—-after I had used it the mineral oil/swarf turned teh stone darker. The backside (minus the little “stain” on the left”) is what the front of the stone looked like before I used it. Picture 2: the case. Picture 3: the front of the stone after it had been wiped down after the first use was definitely darker than it was before use. Did not expect that. So I bought this (my first oilstone) earlier this week and used it for the f...

Excellent Blades & Outsanding Customer Service

Excellent Blades & Outsanding Customer Service

2335 days ago by Chris | 2 comments »

I had tried several cheaper blades on my bandsaw and had never been satisfied. I had come to the conclusion that it must be either me or the bandsaw (Jet 14”). After speaking with a few folks over @ SawMill Creek. I decided to give the folks @ Suffolk Machinery a call; they make these blades. I spent about 30 minutes on the phone with their rep. They asked what kind of saw I had, What kind of work I wanted to perform and what the problems were that I was experiencing with my current ...
