$74.95 Piece of crap

Fellow lumberjocks I hate to post a bad review but this dovetail jig has taken the last of my Patience that I allocated for it :( I bought this last year after realizing I need a jig, well I am fed up with trying to fix an almost new jig after reading the instruction manual and setting it up accordingly I placed the wood in the holder and tightened the clamp and after 3 seconds SNAP!!!! the knobs and bushing holders were broke after calling grizzly and getting a new bag of knobs and nylon b...

Keep the wet stuff off the dry stuff.

Keep the wet stuff off the dry stuff.

Happen to be in the paint department of the local big box store and saw these little beauties. They will fit on all cans, pint,quart, gallon all you have to do is clip them on the inner rim of the can. I tried them on a little can of of sealcoat and it works perfectly. No spilling or finishing going down the side of the can. Cost around 99 cents.

A versatile tool for small cuts and other tricks

A versatile tool for small cuts and other tricks

11-13-2011 11:27 PM by Jorge G. | 13 comments »

Well, I finally got my Jointmaker Pro V2. I mainly bought this tool to make kerf bending, inlay, and a few other ideas I have for spiffing up projects. The tool comes in a fairly small box, there are a lot of pieces and assembly instructions are very explicit and easy to follow, the machine can be put together in one afternoon. When I got my tool, there were a few parts missing or the wrong size, being BCT once I contacted them I was sent the parts at no charge to me via Fedex, great se...

My New Rockler HVLP Spray System

My New Rockler HVLP Spray System

04-03-2012 10:36 PM by Jorge Velez | 5 comments »

It’s been about 6 wks since I purchase this Rockler Spray System I’m very happy with the performance of this product. I own a small compressor and I had been using this for quite some time but I was kind of annoying with the level of noise and the fact that is not as portable as I wanted to be, this Spray system is fully portable and bit less noisy, however I had made an plywood enclosure and reduce the noise. I dont have a way to measure the noise levels but certainly is lower...

Handy Self-Adhesive Discs - Discontinued Item

Handy Self-Adhesive Discs - Discontinued Item

09-22-2012 04:30 PM by DeLayne Peck | 12 comments »

As a “back-in-the-day” woodworker, I was always annoyed with carpet tape. Too thick, too much stick, and too much residue. But, that is what we had. Turners’ tape? Don’t know much about it. But, on a whim, I tossed Rockler's Double-Sided Self-Adhesive Discs into the My Cart with an order. Ho-hum, they arrived, but now, Wow. I have been on a jig building kick lately. I can say the little sticky stinkers have ridden over, under, around, and through almost eve...

Parts Manufactured Incorrectly

Parts Manufactured Incorrectly

08-04-2013 11:22 AM by Rob98075 | 22 comments »

I purchased the band saw from Harbor Freight in Bellevue, WA. store (store number 00279) on 7/27/2013. While assembling the band saw, I found that on step 2 of the assembly (page 6 of the manual), the supporting plate (4) was machined incorrectly. The holes did not line up with the holes on the motor plate (7) or with the holes on the base plate(6). I returned the saw twice, only to find that the part in each box was identical to the part in the first box and drilled incorrectly. The st...

Motor burned out in less than 3 days

Motor burned out in less than 3 days

Picked this belt sander up for $50 on sale at the blue box on a Saturday morning. Put it through some admittedly hard use on Saturday and Sunday grinding down some unevenness in some self-levelling concrete I’d patched a concrete slab with. Monday night I went to do the last few spots and started to smell burning emanating from the sander’s motor. Based on this performance, it would be a one-star tool. However, it came with a 30-day money-back guarantee so I was able to return ...

Perfect broom for cleaning up the shop

Perfect broom for cleaning up the shop

04-03-2009 01:44 AM by GaryK | 16 comments »

Not exactly a woodworking tool, but a tool for the shop that everyone needs. Tired of getting the sawdust out of tight spaces? These little brooms do an amazing job. In Tagalog they are called a “Walis tambo”, and you can pick them up in most Asian stores and probably Pier 1 Imports. As far as I know they only come in the longer version, so I just cut one down to use on the bench or tablesaw. They get into the tightest places, behind, under and around things. They are ...

just purchased and installed the igaging MAGNETIC REMOTE DIGITAL ROUTERLIFT, bought this from Eagle America, it was about $20 cheaper than the Wixey, can’t say it is better, I have not tried the Wixey, but thought I would try this one.the installation instructions were not the best I have seen, but after studying them it was easy enough to figure out, the worst part was having to drill and tap holes in my Jessem router lift so it could be mounted, I broke one tap, so I had to move the p...

Cheap, but works very well

Cheap, but works very well

01-22-2010 02:42 AM by funchuck | 8 comments »

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...
