Great Oscillating Spindle Sander option

Great Oscillating Spindle Sander option

01-03-2010 11:22 PM by richgreer | 14 comments »

I wanted an oscillating spindle sander but I was not willing to give up any floor space to accommodate one. I considered some bench top options but I felt the work surface on most of them was too small. I found the ideal answer with the Porter-Cable PC121 sander and a special insert plate for my router table from Woodpecker. Now I can lift my router out of the router table and set the sander in. I then have the entire router table as a work surface for my sander and I am not taking ...

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 | 37 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...

Dust Collection Upgrade

Dust Collection Upgrade

02-05-2013 07:12 PM by TheDane | 20 comments »

I have wanted a two-stage dust collection system for some time, so decided to take the leap and order an Oneida Super Dust Deputy. The Super Dust Deputy (SDD) was well packed and everything (SDD, installation bolts, foam gasket, and the 5”-to-4” and 6”-to-4” reducers) was packed in a single box surrounded by plastic and foam. Because of the lid I opted for, I substituted the bolts Oneida provided with 1/4” x 20 tpi x 2 1/2” that I had on hand in the shop...

What do you get if you cross a Grizzly with a Polar Bear? Some sort of Hybrid???

What do you get if you cross a Grizzly with a Polar Bear? Some sort of Hybrid???

Background Info:Prior to owning this saw I made all of my cuts with a circular saw and a straightedge. Once I decided that I was interested enough in woodworking to dedicate half of my garage as a shop, it was time for a table saw. I did a lot of research and had pretty well decided on this saw. When I found out that I would be in Springfield, MO on Black Friday, I knew I had to check out the Grizzly showroom. While the Black Friday deals were pretty lousy, I ventured into the outlet store an...

Etekcity 3 Pack Wireless Controlled Outlet socket with remote

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 ...
