Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

08-14-2015 12:30 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 8 comments »

I needed to increase the cutting capacity of my table saw and last fall I bought a Vega Pro 50 fence system. I originally wanted to get a Biesemeyer, but I really need both my legs and both my arms. My table saw is a Rigid 2424. I wanted to use the fence for a while before writing a review. I have put it through the paces and the following is my take on the fence. Aftermarket fences can be really expensive and may require a good amount of modifications to your table saw. That was not ...

Grizzly G0771 Table Saw

Grizzly G0771 Table Saw

11-26-2015 02:02 AM by EMWW | 9 comments »

Overall I am happy with this saw. I will start with the good aspects of it. It has a decent fence and is fairly accurate once set up properly. The motor is powerful enough to do repeated 2 inch thick cuts in white oak. The blade raises and tilts very well. The saw is built heavy enough to make it run smoothly. And it can be set up 120 or 240. Now onto the cons, The dust collection is horrible. Even with the saw hooked strait up to the dust collector the majority of the dust stays in the cabin...

1st. Opinion of grizzly 4 jaw chuck H6267 vicmark (vm100 copy)

1st. Opinion of grizzly 4 jaw chuck H6267 vicmark (vm100 copy)

01-07-2016 08:07 PM by bigJohninvegas | 5 comments »

So this is my early opinion of this grizzly chuck. Mine is the H6267 and has the 1 1/4”X 8tpi adapter included.This chuck is sold under several different part numbers, based on what adapter you need.I had read that it was a close enough copy to the vicmarc vm100, and that the vicmarc jaws would fit it.This grizzly chuck is about half the cost of the vicmarc at $120.00. I have used the chuck 4 or 5 times now with the dove tail jaws that came with it.The chuck does feel a little clunk...

Quality and Savings on Four Inch Flex Hose

Quality and Savings on Four Inch Flex Hose

02-09-2016 07:30 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

This isn’t as heavy duty as the tubing I’ve been using for the past few years, which well tolerates being drug around my shop for vacuuming operations, or switching between machines. That said,this is about 1/3 the price and the fifty foot length allows me to cut sections to dedicate to each piece of equipment. The hose came nicely packaged in a square tube about four feet long. I have three collectors – a 1-1/2 horse Jet (canister), a “2 horse” Harbor F...

Awesome machine for the $$

Awesome machine for the $$

Was looking for a solid bench top belt sander for a reasonable price. Found this at Lowes for 179. Well made, no vibration adequate tables ( hey it’s a sander)well packed and a snap to assemble. Fit and finish is good industrial style . Low noise. Easily adjusted belt tracking. Fits right up to my Rigid 2 1/2 shop vac hose for excellent dust control. Just spent 2 hours sanding 114 pine blocks all edges, machine didn’t event get warm. I don’t think there is a bett...

Took a couple weeks to get dust collector. Not bad. Had some hesitation with housing being plastic. Then again car intake manifolds have been plastic for a long time. It is very light. Putting it together took some patience. There are many fasteners. It would have been good to segregate them to make finding them easier. Didn’t expect to be drilling holes or applying a peel and stick gaskets. Not a big deal. Could/should have been done by manufacturer. I was surprised to find ...

GRS-16 Guide Rail Square - AWESOME!

GRS-16 Guide Rail Square - AWESOME!

01-18-2017 01:44 PM by rlamb007 | 12 comments »

I love my track saw. But lets face it, if you own a track saw then you are probably obsessed with accuracy when making cuts. Track Saw owners tend to be very picky with wanting to cut something square to an edge. I am no different. Now I have found the ultimate track saw square that actually works flawlessly. Received this tool/square and within a few minutes I was making perfect SQUARE cuts that were dead on accurate. Workmanship is first rate, this thing will last for years. If you ...

Replacement Screw (saves a tool)

Replacement Screw (saves a tool)

02-26-2017 11:14 PM by socrbent | 8 comments »

Early last week I had a big oops – dropped my 6” double square on the floor. It broke the tang off the screw that holds the ruler in place. Looked like this tool was toast as a double square. The item was bought from Woodcraft under the Pinnacle name and I didn’t see where they carried parts. After some time searching I got lucky and found a link to this replacement part from Little Machine Shop. The 6” PEC double square they sell seemed to be an exact match which mean...

Good saw for a good price

Good saw for a good price

09-29-2010 04:00 AM by cpd011 | 2 comments »

Over the weekend I picked up a new miter saw. I had previously been using a 10 year old Delta 10” single bevel miter saw with an Irwin arbor mounted laser. No knocks against the Delta, it has erved me well but I wanted the larger crosscut capacity and a higher fence. I read every review I could find from this and other websites, and also went and kicked the tires at various stores. I decided on the masterforce because it is virtually identical to the Craftsman Professional 12” sl...
