Rikon 8" low speed bench grinder

Rikon 8" low speed bench grinder

02-16-2014 08:01 PM 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

09-16-2008 10:46 PM 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

02-04-2010 12:41 AM 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

12-04-2011 12:23 AM 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

04-19-2012 04:15 AM 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

09-01-2013 02:11 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 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

02-29-2008 07:59 PM 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 ...

My prize, Summer 2008 Contest

My prize, Summer 2008 Contest

09-17-2008 10:26 PM by Karson | 13 comments »

I won 2nd place in the LumberJock 2008 One Man’s Junk Contest. I won a Jack Rabbit Deluxe bit driver set. It arrived today and it looks great. It came in a blister pack package and it contained 4 drill bit sizes 7/64, 1/8, 9/64 and 3/32 drill bits. The countersink is 3/8 in the three lower sizes and 1/2 in the larger drill bit. It has a brass covered magnet that is quite strong. It held the wrench that is used to screw in the drill countersink assembly. The drill assembl...

Oneida Mini Gorilla

Oneida Mini Gorilla

04-29-2009 03:16 PM by philF | 8 comments »

I was searching for a portable (one machine at a time) dust collector for my basement shop. After much research and anguish I settled on the Oneida Air Systems Mini Gorilla. Oneida cut the price to $795.00 and threw in a plastic Dust Deputy DIY cyclone. They also cut the price on the remote control upgrade to $30. I was vacillating between the Jet DC-1100 CK (Canister Filter) and the Mini Gorilla. The Jet had the higher CFM, but I wondered how long would I have 1100 CFM, was the filter g...
