Rikon 70-220 VSR Customer Service

08-21-2015 06:59 PM by woodmaker | 6 comments »

I must brag on Rikon and their customer service.My lathe variable speed indicator stopped working. 1st Rikon sent me a new cable and that worked for a couple days and stopped working again.Rikon sent me a new mother board and switch assembly pronto; which I promptly crossed wires and fried. I contacted Rikon told them what I did and asked how much for a new one. Rod Burrow from Rikon whom I’ve been working with sent me another new one and no cost with an invite to call before I install....

My "Entry-Level" Dovetail Saw

My "Entry-Level" Dovetail Saw

10-17-2015 02:14 PM by DylanC | 0 comments »

Let me start by saying this is my first venture into the world of anything other than a “construction” grade handsaw. My thoughts and opinions here are based on a whopping 10 minutes of experience. I was looking at this saw as an inexpensive alternative to a traditional dovetail saw, and because I didn’t think I would care for a “Gents” saw because of the handle style. The blade is 0.025” at thick and 0.035” at the teeth. This is a bit thicker than a comparable Veritas, ...

A worth while track saw consideration

A worth while track saw consideration

11-30-2015 06:32 AM by Holbs | 10 comments »

There are track saws, and there are track saws. For a $200 estimated price tag, this Grizzly T10687 does it’s job wonderfully. This is similar to Sheppach and other European clones of this economical track saw type, but is Grizzly :) It has a riving knife, it plunges, 9 amp motor, dust port, has a 100% functional depth knob, no wobble in the track. All knobs are plastic, but that hard plastic, not the flimsy type. I can easily plunge it with one hand reaching across 4’ plywoo...

Grizzly G0771 Comprehensive Guide

Grizzly G0771 Comprehensive Guide

01-11-2016 08:50 PM by ThomasLightle | 3 comments »

I got my Grizzly G0771 Table Saw in May 2015 and have been documenting my journey with it on YouTube ever since. If you are interested in what this saw has to offer, check out my videos below: UnboxingUnboxing of my new Grizzly G0771 table saw. This is a huge upgrade for my shop. Up until this point I have been using a portable Craftsman table saw that was adequate for construction, but lacking many features of even the most basic contractor saws, let alone hybrid saws such as this one. ...

An Indispensable Addition to My Sanding Equipment

An Indispensable Addition to My Sanding Equipment

02-09-2016 09:33 PM by Kelly | 4 comments »

I’ve had this unit since about 2006. From shortly after I bought it and yet to this day, I consider this tool an indispensable addition to my sanding equipment. I think highly enough of it that I would upgrade to the floor model, if I didn’t have other upgrades to tend to first. The unit is a heavy, well built piece of equipment and, certainly, had much to do with my considering other Jet equipment purchases. In the years I’ve used this machine, it shows no signs of wear ...

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

04-08-2016 08:40 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

I got a Rockler Gift card for Christmas this past year (yay!), which means I finally had no excuse to not buy the State Park Font template set I have been wanting. And for the most part it was exactly what I was expecting. HOWEVER two issues… #1. Do NOT use the tempate in the manner shown by Rockler. Your router base WILL hang on it, and if you give too much pressure it can hop up and ram the bit through whatever is in the way. #2. The brass bushing that came with mine is defectiv...

Another disappointment from Harbor Freight

Another disappointment from Harbor Freight

07-18-2016 04:51 AM by John Mills | 3 comments »

I would have rated it Zero, but you don’t allow me that option. I bought the Harbor Freight Central Machinery 14” 4 speed band saw while living in Casper, WY back in 2009. They shipped it to me in three packages, each weighing 50+ pounds. Each box arrived on different days, the last being two weeks after the first arrived. After assembling it and trying to make sense of the chicken scratch they call instructions, I had a good idea how it was to go together. However, that ende...

Poor Design

Poor Design

12-05-2016 04:41 PM by Manitario | 7 comments »

I needed a larger drill press and wanted something with a 6” stroke. I settled on this drill press without too much thought or research. The CWI Bullett (I’ll give CWI the benefit of the doubt that “Bullett” was an intentional spelling error) seemed to fit my needs and there was a good deal on shipping, so I made the order. On arrival, it was very apparent that this was simply a General International 75-260 drill press that was spray painted black and had a differen...

Impressive for a small shop

Impressive for a small shop

01-24-2017 12:50 AM by ColonelTravis | 24 comments »

I work out of a 2-car garage that can barely hold one car because it’s filled with woodworking crap, and it’s a brand new car so I don’t want it constantly covered in sawdust, nor do I want the rest of the garage covered in sawdust, which is how it’s been for a while. I use mostly hand tools but I have a bandsaw, miter saw, sanders, etc. and my dust collection system is just me with a leaf blower out an open garage door. So I bought this thing off amazon for about $...

HIPUR WW30 Hot-Melt Glue, Amazing product

HIPUR WW30 Hot-Melt Glue, Amazing product

04-23-2017 12:49 AM by RJL73 | 1 comment »

This is a great concept. If anyone is wondering whether or not its a necessary expense, i’ll go over a couple of things from my experience so far. I ordered the Hipurformer Glue gun, which came from Franklin, it said Steinel on it when i opened the box. I ordered the WW30 cartridges to start and they came with the glue gun through WoodWorkers Hardware. The front part of the glue gun is where you put the cartridge, then you attach it to the handle. I plugged it in and waited the 12 m...
