Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

09-26-2010 07:00 AM by gene | 44 comments »

I am very pleased with the 2hp HF. I caught it on sale for $151.99. I could not be any happier with the big difference in suction power. This was well worth the price. Knowing what I know now, the jet unit was a waste of my time and money. This unit is twice as good! God bless

$40 For a tape measure?? Absolutely!

$40 For a tape measure?? Absolutely!

01-29-2013 06:38 PM by lumberjoe | 36 comments »

I saw this at a booth at the New England Woodworking show a few weekends ago. At first it seemed like just another gimmick, but I noticed the company is local to me. I am always one to give local businesses a shot, so I asked for some more information. What I found out was this is not a gimmick. I would go as far to say this is a must have. You are probably thinking ”A tape measure is a tape measure, what makes this one $40?”. Well, let me answer that for you. Before I get into...

Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...

Etekcity 3 Pack Wireless Controlled Outlet socket with remote

02-17-2013 10:59 PM by MT_Stringer | 33 comments »

I bought these in Jan 2013 and so far everything has worked better than I anticipated. Originally, I bought a single unit but it worked so well that I ordered the three pack. The first one is hooked up to the shop vac/Dust Deputy.The second one is connected to a box fan/filter combo.The third one is connected to my 2hp Harbor Freight Dust collector! :-) I have started/stopped the DC at least 20 times so far. I have had no issues with the remote starting or stopping any of the three mac...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Z53WKU/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i02 After trying a few masks, this one is definitely the best so far. I rarely give 5 stars, and in fact this is my first 5 star item that I have used. Its comfortable, inexpensive, and has a down firing exhaust that prevents any condensation on safety glasses. The adjustments for the straps are easy and it has the best detachment mechanism so you aren’t wearing out the adjustments. Cost: ~$20 I am using the ...

Great value in a contractor saw

Great value in a contractor saw

11-02-2009 04:11 AM by Glenn | 43 comments »

I’ve been using an early 1980s-era Craftsman 9-inch portable table saw with a steel table and stamped steel extension wings. After deciding that I needed something a little more precise than this older saw, I was looking to upgrade and was attracted to the Bosch 4100-09 partly because of the reviews, but mostly because of the blade guard/riving knife it features. I wasn’t really wanting another portable saw, however, and was looking for something beefier instead. I discovered this...

Preliminary Review Of The Woodpeckers WDPPACK1 Drill Press Table

Preliminary Review Of The Woodpeckers WDPPACK1 Drill Press Table

09-23-2013 04:29 AM by Brad_Nailor | 25 comments »

I have been debating for a year or so about building/buying a good drill press table for my DP. I have seen a lot of really well done ones on this website, and till a few weeks ago hadn’t really seen anything commercially made that really impressed me. I have worked a couple projects lately that I needed the DP for and just a piece of melamine poorly clamped to the metal table wasn’t cutting it.I went online for design inspiration and was looking for ideas on LJ and at commerciall...
