Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

04-10-2015 01:22 AM by DKV | 8 comments »

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

I have been trying you use hand tools more in the shop. I have to admit, I’m all about the power tools. I have a bunch of friends on here that use and talk about hand-planes in great detail. I have had these 3 for a while now and feel comfortable enough to comment on them. Reading past posts from fellow Lumberjocks I knew about planes needing a quick sharpening out of box being required. I tested all 3 of these first before sharpening. I sharpened up to 6000 grit after that. I have ...

Handy to have

Handy to have

Although I think a lot of Kregs products are exspensive they are extremely well made and they are made for the beginner in mind. I purchased this jig because I wanted to put shelf pin holes in an existing cabinet and it worked awesome, I especially like the simplicity of the jig. The Shelf Pin Jig also includes a dual-position, adjustable fence for custom hole placement, a locating pin for quick and accurate spacing reference, a jig extender that lets you connect multiple Shelf Pin Jigs...

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...

Oneida Mini Gorilla

Oneida Mini Gorilla

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 ...
