Save some money if you want to do alot of work.

I had a tough time trying to figure out what rating to give this thing. Half way through truing the sole I was thinking 1 star was way too much, but when finished it makes great cuts. Pros: 1. Cheap. Twenty bucks won’t put a down payment on a Veritas or Lie-Nielson, but it let me walk out of the box store with this guy. 2. When tuned up it makes great shavings. Cuts like a dream through everything but end grain so far, the 25 degree bevel is not steep enough to handle end grain well or an...

Awesome Back Saw

Awesome Back Saw

1241 days ago by Marc5 | 2 comments »

I was asked to post a review on this saw by a fellow LJ a couple days ago and looking around there were no reviews on this particular saw or anything coming out of Bad Axe. Quite honestly the name caught my attention first and I figured it was worth a look. After a little research I found out the company is out of Wisconsin and as I am in NW Indiana this was a part of the initial decision to do even more research. I read a couple articles on the company, Mark Harrell and the saws. The n...

Midi Lathe Duplicator Vega 8500 - Worth the price? maybe

Midi Lathe Duplicator Vega 8500 - Worth the price? maybe

540 days ago by Nick_R | 4 comments »

I have a delta midi lathe and have been using it for over a year now. I can get things done pretty quickly and have done quite a bit of turning, but one consistent problem has been duplication of pieces that is accurate… I have wanted to build a chess set and a duplicator is necessary. After much research I went with the Vega duplicator because it looked the most complete and easy to use. Not many knocks against it and most actually seems more than satisfied.. I ordered mine fr...

excellent customer service

excellent customer service

411 days ago by DAC | 4 comments »

I had some issues getting it not to orange peel and solved that then bubbles. I tlaked to Tom at the factory and he was more than helpful. We discussed tempuarte, drying times, and the type and brand of spray gun. As my Iwata is about 10 years old it is not up to doing the water based products. It is a gravity fed gun and built in the days when oil based is all you could get. I have 4 tip sizes. 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 all of which do a fine job on oil based products. Drying time is an issue,...

Grizzly G0656P Belmish

Grizzly G0656P Belmish

214 days ago by Alan72 | 8 comments »

This past June I was looking at the Grizzly 8” jointers on line when I came across this. It was $200.00 off the original price because it had a paint defect. I thought about it for a week and I called Grizzly on July 1st to see how many they had left. The lady on the phone said six, So I orded one, that very next day Grizzly came out with the 10% codes, I called when I got home from work the next day and I was told sorry there was notihing they could do. This was the 2nd time this past ...

Stanley Sweetheart 12-137 No. 62 Low angle Jack plane

Stanley Sweetheart 12-137 No. 62 Low angle Jack plane

46 days ago by Gerry | 16 comments »

Unbelievable! This is my first experience with a “reputed to be” a premium level wood plane. I am what one might call a “Hybrid” woodworker, and find myself using hand tools more and more. In using a very old Stanley No. 4 Smoother with my shooting board, even thought it works OK when well sharpened, I’ve not been entirely happy with the way it feels when cutting, nor with the results. Recently, Fine Woodworking put up a video about low angle bevel up jack planes by Garret Hack. H...

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

1999 days ago by Texasgaloot | 12 comments »

Anyone who has ever seen the movie “A Christmas Story” knows the elation of discovering that you had won a major prize. I have not had a new tool infiltrate my shop in a very long time. It would be even longer had I not won this plane from the Wood Talk Online podcast—thanks Marc and Matt. See, folks, if you aren’t listening to this podcast, YOU SHOULD BE! Even a guy who never wins a thing can win something over-the-top cool! Okay: on to the plane (thank God it ...

Upgraded mini-lathe

Upgraded mini-lathe

1797 days ago by Sawdust2 | 6 comments »

I’d been using a Carba-Tec mini-lathe for so long I can’t remember when I bought it.When my 65th birthday came around (remember my b’day cake?)I decided to get the variable speed version. A while back I had tried to make my old mini-lather variable but you just can’t do that with an old AC motor So here is a picture of the new one right out of the box I also order a 4 jaw chuck so I could try some new turning stuff. One thing that surprised me is the tool kit ...

Air Filter

Air Filter

1524 days ago by David Murray | 6 comments »

I finally took the plunge and bought an air filter unit for my shop. It was a purchase that I didn’t put on a very high priority. My thinking was “It really isn’t really a tool”, after all you can’t cut, shape, grind, drill or sand with it. After all I have a dust collector what more do I need. I always figured the fine dust that was always collecting on everything was okay, after this is a woodworking shop. Then I read a few articles on the long term health haza...

Review: JET Hybrid Table Saw JPS-10

Review: JET Hybrid Table Saw JPS-10

718 days ago by Rb12 | 16 comments »

This is my first tool review and I know it is not something new to the market, but still sold so, I figured I would throw it out there for others. Recently bought a JET Hybrid Table Saw JPS-10 . Up until now I had my dad’s hand-me-down, 30-year-old Delta/Rockwell, 1-hp Model 9 Contractor Saw. The fence was horrible, it had metal lattice work wings (finger catchers), a bearing had gone in the motor and it was loud as hell (forget the dime test, it couldn’t pass the push stick test… where ...
