A Bad Rap

A Bad Rap

1221 days ago by jim C | 31 comments »

I’m going out on a limb here. I’m going against the grain (pun intended)I’ve seen the reviews here on the “Blade Runner”, and I have to say it’s gotten a bad rap.I have been out of town, and when I got home, I decided to go into Woodcraft and nosy around. I saw the Bladerunner on display and thought about my past idea of mounting my Bosch jig saw upside down to a board, to be interchanged with my router, on my router table. This looked like a viable altern...

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

1084 days ago by Raymond | 3 comments »

My last find from my recient trip to Harbor Freight was this Air Sander with Jacobs chuck. 18000 RPM 4 CFM @ 90 PSI. come with 3 backing plates 3” 4” and 5.5” and a 3/8 jacobs chuck. Tons of power, it was missing one of the wrenchs but Harbor Freight customer service sent one right out. One reviewer on HF’s site commented that the sholder on the nut that holds the backing plate and sand paper on is very shallow I have to agree and infact turned a new one on my metal la...

Poor Communication

Poor Communication

816 days ago by Bertha | 30 comments »

I ordered two woodscrews and two garters on April 3, 2012 for $320.00. I sent a total of 8 messages to check on the status of my order. I said, “I’m not asking for the World, just a bit of communication” (both on the site form and via e-mail). Without a single word, my payment was refunded on April 25, 2012. The credit hasn’t posted yet but I have every reason to believe it will. The right thing to do would have been to simply tell me he couldn’t fill the order. ...

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

642 days ago by Tennessee | 4 comments »

From reviews on this site of the Haltbar Sagen blades, I thought I might try out some for my Grizzly G0513.I ordered two 1/2” 101 Flexback series, 131.5” long, 4 TPI, and I also ordered two of their 201 Hardback series, a 1/2” 4TPI and a 3/8” 6TPI. I completed the order online, and in three days, two boxes appeared on my front porch, each containing one 201 series Haltbar, with the proper label on the side of the box describing the model, length, width, and TPI. In...

Leigh VRS - the VRS24 exactly

Leigh VRS - the VRS24 exactly

314 days ago by ken_c | 6 comments »

I purchased the VRS attachment for my Leigh jig a while ago but hadn’t needed to make any dovetails for a while – until now – The vacuum attachment is well worth the $100. I estimate dust collection now at about 98%. I would highly recommend anyone with a Leigh jig pony up the extra cash and get that attachment. Mine is hooked up to a 4” port on the central dust collection but gets reduced to a 2 1/4” hose at the jig. That provides a fairly low air speed for...

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

1898 days ago by mart | 14 comments »

A friend flew down to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he bought and was going to be going through Washington on the way back to Alaska. I took advantage of the opportunity to have him swing by the Grizzly warehouse to pick up some equipment for me. In addition to an eight inch jointer which I will preview later, I had him pickup the Shop Fox Classic Fence System with Standard Rails. I finally got around to installing it yesterday and it couldn’t have been easier. It went on my old Grizz...

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

1730 days ago by drfixit | 9 comments »

This is going to be my first review here at LJs and hope some one finds it of use. I normally use the cheap little shop brushes for spreading glue in joints and on tenons and such. I went by the local WoodCraft the other day to pick some up and came across these polypropylene glue spreaders. There is 6 in a pack and at $3.50 I figured it would be worth a shot. Love em! I use a lot of Tight Bond glue, after using one the other night while glueing up a clock case, I simply let it dry over n...

Oshlun 8" stacked dado review

Oshlun 8" stacked dado review

1623 days ago by cliffton | 26 comments »

Let me preface this review with the only other dado i have used was a very old sears “wobble” dado that i used once and refused to put back on my saw. I bought this last week as rockler had it on sale for 59$ and all the reviews I saw of the 6” set said it was a good buy. Its a stacked set with full blade chippers which i like better than the wing chippers. I used it on a scrap piece of pine and had no tear out and flat bottoms. The cutter blades are made so that they pu...

UltraDeck Composite Decking material

UltraDeck Composite Decking material

816 days ago by richgreer | 5 comments »

I just completed building a deck that featured the UltraDeck composite decking material. This was my first experience with any composite decking material. In many regards, I was impressed. This is a solid, straight and true decking material. They claim it is maintenance free and I believe them. The hidden screw system works reasonably well and, once you figure it out, installation goes well. The second picture shows a close-up of the grooves in the sides of the boards. A T-s...
