Review of Delta 14" Bandsaw, Sawing with a Delta

Review of Delta 14" Bandsaw, Sawing with a Delta

07-25-2011 08:35 PM by Delta356 | 19 comments »

When it came to buying a new bandsaw, I really took my time on which one I wanted. I looked at all the main brands, and compared the difference. There were really not very many difference. They all cut wood…I ended up going with the brand that pioneered the 14” bandsaw, Delta Machinery. I bought this bad boy at Rockler when they had there 15% of Delta tools. The Bandsaw comes in one big box, and it weighs a lot. The way the box was shaped it was very hard for two people to h...

Great for honing, but doesn't replace stones and grinders

Great for honing, but doesn't replace stones and grinders

I love my Work Sharp! But it has limitations that you will have to work around. One major one is that it will not sharpen plane irons wider than two inches! When I tried to sharpen my iron from my #7, using their auxiliary sharpening fence, I inadvertantly added two extra angles. I then had to use my stones to correct these new angles. When sharpening plane irons 2” and smaller, it does a good job, but you need to do the initial sharpening on a stone first, or be prepared to spen...

Economical Brad Nailer

Economical Brad Nailer

10-05-2009 07:02 PM by nmkidd | 12 comments »

Bostich BT200k 18 Gauge Pneumatic Brad Nailer. The unit came with a case, instructions and warranty. The housing is magnesium and is very lite weight (listed at 6 lbs). It is also oil free, which I find to be a plus. There is an adjustable depth control and a sequential trip mechanism. Recommended air pressure is 70psi to 120 psi. It will shoot brads from 5/8” to 2”. This is a factory reconditioned item and comes with a 1 year warranty. Cost was $34.99 including shipping from ...

It’s big, it’s heavy, but it is possible to move it. Just don’t try taking it out of your truck and pulling it into your shop like I did. It’s very dangerous!I had to take off my door to fit into my shop lol. Good times!Anyway, so it weighs a lot and it’s big so your going to need casters to put it on if you want to move it at all. This sander is very powerful with it’s 5hp motor. I can take off quite a bit of material in one pass using 80 and 120 grit...

cordless brad nailer

cordless brad nailer

Never owned a nailer before but I gotta say that this is a winner. It comes w/ a pack of nails in all sizes. I bought this particular one off of fleabay for $60 and $15 shipping. Having already bought a few of the 18v products, I did not need a battery. This would explain the somewhat low cost. The gun feels good in your hand, but has maybe a slight delay upon triggering(I adapted easily to that). After I bought the nailer I went to Amazon to read the reviews. There are some bad review...

Narex mortise Chisels Set of 5

Narex mortise Chisels Set of 5

11-07-2010 10:07 PM by Bob #2 | 38 comments »

I bought a five piece set of Narex mortise chisels and so far have had an opportunity to actual work with one. I’m quite pleased with the fit and finish and this steel quality which seems to be just right for my liking. Not too brittle, takes an edge quickly and seems to sharpen without leaving too much curl on the cutting-edge.(Rc59) They have a nice weight to them in a nice feel in my hand and the blades are definitely long enough to be able to hold the blade in alignment while gentl...

Something to avoid

Something to avoid

Prefix: I should say that I’m not a very experienced woodworker, so I’m not comparing this machine with anything else – I have no idea whether this table saw is better, or worse, than a Griz X, or a Bear Y. ————————————————————————————————————- A couple of ...

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

11-30-2011 09:43 PM by Johnny Boy | 6 comments »

For the last 4 years I have tried to do business with Busybee Tools. As many of us, I was impressed by the unbeatable price. Unfortunately, every single order I have placed was a nightmare. Defective dust collector, items not as described, items not available, orders not shipped after several months, missing parts. I have never received a full order without having to complain about it.3 days ago, after 29 days, I have received an email to let me know the item I was waiting for (a 38” st...

Mr. Heater Big Maxx 45,000 btu gas heater

Mr. Heater Big Maxx 45,000 btu gas heater

02-13-2013 07:38 PM by Nicky | 13 comments »

A heater is an integral part of my shop. If the temperature falls below 50 degs I can’t work comfortably. Yes, I’m a wussy boy. During the Christmas break my Peerless heater stopped working. Seems that it developed an electrical problem. The fan had been on its way out. Estimate for repairs about $300. It was 30 plus years old so I thought it was time for a new heater. After a bit of research and reading through some reviews I ordered the Big Maxx 45,000bu heater. I paid $399 plu...

A Good Deal, If You Know What You're Getting

A Good Deal, If You Know What You're Getting

08-24-2013 05:31 PM by GeBeWubya | 5 comments »

Note: This review is an elaboration on my review at Amazon.com I am pleased with this plane. After lapping and honing, it did a good job cutting both long grain and cross grain rabbets. This is a shoulder plane (Iron goes all the way to the edge of the body) with a depth stop, fence, and side nicker (to cut across the end grain when planing across the grain). It also has 2 frogs to mount the iron, one normal near the center of the sole, and a second near the front of the plane for u...
