Carter Rikon 14" Deluxe Micro Adjust Guide Conversion Kit

Carter Rikon 14" Deluxe Micro Adjust Guide Conversion Kit

02-07-2014 04:35 PM by Jeff_in_LSMO | 9 comments »

I’ve been living with my Rikon 14” Deluxe bandsaw since I purchased it about a year ago. I’ve resawn a handful of lumber, cut out some cabriole legs, made jigs… a fairly rounded work history. It’s been okay, but I felt like the blade never really tracked properly even after a lengthy and tedious tuneup. Then, I decided to make the plunge and purchase a set of Carter Micro Adjust guide bearings… POW! I just won at life. Yes they are expensive, and, ye...

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

09-29-2014 07:18 PM by OttoH | 20 comments »

I have owned a Bostitch pin nailer for three years now and it has been a miserable experience. But today it finally made me happy. How? Well I too a 15 pound sledge hammer to it and smashed it to smithereens. I do hereby swear to never ever purchase another Bostitch tool. A big name with poor designs, I am very disappointed in them.

Good Belt

Good Belt

03-21-2015 05:44 AM by B4B | 11 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 ...

Crick Levels, Up For Review

Crick Levels, Up For Review

04-17-2015 06:30 PM by woodshopmike | 6 comments »

I recently reviewed a few levels made by Crick and I’ve got to say I’m rather impressed. The full review of these levels is on my blog: Crick Levels, Up For Review. Here are the highlights though All wood body Stainless steel binding & end caps Accurate to .015” over length of level (that’s ~ .02° for a 40” level!) Curved sight tubes, these move slower than straight tubes which makes them easier to read I know it’s short and sweet, b...

Carver's Spoon Plane from Woodcraft

Carver's Spoon Plane from Woodcraft

05-24-2015 02:09 AM by SouthpawCA | 3 comments »

I purchased Woodcraft’s Carver’s Spoon Plane to clean up the edges on a sculpted chair seat. The first use on black walnut it worked out OK. However, on the 2nd chair seat, maple, the blade broke off. After looking at the construction, you can see in the picture, it appears there is very little metal holding the spoon onto the handle. The metal spoon is very cheap and can actually be bent by hand. It’s not expensive but you get what you pay for. I finished the job wi...

20: single surface planer

20: single surface planer

Gave this planer a good workout today. Between the jointer yesterday and the planer today ended up with 6 55 Gal. drums of shavings. The planer performed great no problems at all. The helical head a lot quieter than knives. Reduced the 6” dust port to 4” and everything got sucked right out, another great tool!

A Decent Jig

A Decent Jig

08-25-2015 09:44 PM by whope | 5 comments »

I had picked this up at least a year ago and the project I had in mind never made it beyond the thinking stage. I finally opened it up to do a simple walnut disk (will be posted later). I had used the smaller guide (M200) and have been happy with it. This jig centers very easily with a 1/4” steel pin and an insert that fits into the router opening. It fit fine on my DeWalt 618. The guide pivots around an 1/8” steel pin that you put into the hole that marks the size of the circl...

Very happy with the product. Fit and finish are excellent. Delivery time was only a few days. I use it as you would hold a pencil and it fits my large hand well. Blade was sharp and useable out of the box.

Great starter set into turning

Great starter set into turning

My roommate and i have had a lathe for around a year now and only had the old tools that came with it. they were not very good and we didnt use it much because its a bit much to start with. i had been reading about carbide tools for some time but the cost it what kept me away. I saw the rockler set was on sale for $100 over the US thanksgiving weekend so thought it might be worth the try. I am very impressed already! so much easier to use! Other item that people talk about is how you cant sha...

Since I purchased my rigid tablesaw I have been really trying to advance my knowledge of exactly what a TS can do and I figured joinery techniques was a good a place as any.. In in the middle of the design phase of creating mitre saw station and I think the doors will be mortise and tennon joinery anyway I have been practicing with this set.. The Pros:Really like the quality of the blades,chippers and spacers.. I like how easy it is for a beginner like me to align everything in the s...
