Good Belt

Good Belt

03-21-2015 05:44 AM by B4B | 10 comments »

So I found a couple 25% off coupons for Harbor Freight. I decided to pickup a link-belt to replace the worn belt on my table saw as part of the tune-up I did recently. The old rubber belt was worn, and I read a lot of good things about these link belts in general, as well as generally good reviews for the Harbor Freight link belt. The one I picked up was labeled “Jason Industrial Inc” and was green in color. I was able to get it sized up and installed in no time. I fired up ...

Exceptionally smooth countersinks

Exceptionally smooth countersinks

10-02-2009 03:42 AM by sry | 10 comments »

Woodcraft product page I had always heard that this style produces a very smooth cut, so I decided to pick some up when I was at Woodcraft. I bought the #6, #8, and #10. It really is amazing how smoothly and effortlessly they cut. The second picture I uploaded shows just how smooth these things cut (#10 is shown, but the results are typical). On the far left is the Wood River single flute countersink, middle is one from HD (can’t remember the brand), and right is from a Ryobi c...

Amazing machine for under 8K!!!

I have always been interested in Legacy’s innovative products and I am some what of a computer junkie. So when they married their product with CNC I was hooked!!! I took a trip to their factory and wow was I impressed! Here are some videos that I posted when I got home http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoK0GB65BEwhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybHpeT02ywE&feature=channelhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TGRskgY0S0&feature=channel Please note i took these on my Flip… they a...

Fine Woodworking Online well worth the $5

Fine Woodworking Online well worth the $5

11-05-2010 02:03 AM by StumpyNubs | 11 comments »

My money is hard to come by and harder to justify spending. So when I do indulge in a woodworking subscription I demand a great deal of bang for my buck. Well, let me tell you, five bucks never went so far! I subscribe to Fine Woodworking’s online content, and it’s a five star find in my book. First of all, you get to read the magazine as soon as the newest issues come out. That means you don’t have to buy the regular mail subscription. I know, I also like the paper issue so I can read it ...

G0490X jointer

G0490X jointer

03-04-2011 02:00 AM by TJU | 7 comments »

It has taken me a few weeks but I have finally got my new planer and jointer all adjusted and running. I ran about 30 bf a cherry through them for a project I am working on. This is the first Grizzly purchase that I have made and I will definitely look at Grizzly when I go to upgrade my 9” crapsman band saw that I got for $35 on Craig’s list.The fit and finish we about what I expected. I took about 5 minutes to file the sharp edges and scrape a few drops of paint off the jointer fenc...

Starrett Protractor Angle Finder

Starrett Protractor Angle Finder

11-19-2011 04:57 AM by cajunpen | 5 comments »

I’ve had this tool since last Christmas. I received it as a gift from my oldest Son and Daughter-in-Law. I just recently started using it on my Table Saw and Miter Saw for setting angles for various cuts. It have found it to be almost indispensable. I’ve got the Wixey digital angle finder also – but for some reason I like the Starrett better. If you get the change to get one – you won’t go wrong. Also great for doing trim work, if you need to cut a miter, t...

My Experience (so far) with the Powermatic PM1800

My Experience (so far) with the Powermatic PM1800

04-07-2012 07:02 PM by Woollymonster | 24 comments »

Hello! I am not new to forums or new to woodworking, but I am new to THIS forum. I joined mainly to post my review of this saw but looks like a good forum with a lot of information and good people. So hello from Texas! RobWoodWorker’s post was one of a few reviews that I read (there are only a few out there) before pulling the trigger on this PM 1800 mega bandsaw. Rather than rehashing a lot of the same data, I thought I would just piggy back onto Rob’s post and compare my find...

I was so excited to try making a picture frame for an old mirror I etched a long time ago… until I got this disaster of a clamp. Pros: Nylon band is an easy to see day-glow orange. Solid easy to grip handle Quick release tabs on either side makes it easy to size the band accordingly Really long band – like 15’ long. A bit large for a 12×12 picture frame, but I’m sure for an odd shaped item it would come in handy. Cons: Has a little notch (for la...

Great plane, great customer service, surprisingly bad quality control

Great plane, great customer service, surprisingly bad quality control

08-17-2013 08:41 PM by bobasaurus | 36 comments »

Let me start off by saying this is the best plane I’ve ever used. I can run it any direction with or against the grain and leave a mirror-smooth surface, taking translucent shavings. The reason I docked a star is Lie-Nielsen’s quality control isn’t very good. When I first received the plane (ordered brand new off their website), there were several problems: - The chipbreaker’s leading edge didn’t contact the blade, it was ground wrong. This means small sha...
