I picked up this Delta 50-760 off of eBay a couple of weeks ago. I lucked out the guy i bought this from had bought it a few months back and changed jobs and was moving and sold his whole shop.It had been used for about 1/2 hr. The collector had about an inch of dust in the bag. Ok so I have this hooked up to my contractors saw from the bottom with a 4 inch she that is 20ft long. The back of the saw is not sealed up and the suction from this thing captures almost all the dust. I have cut M...

Powerful Dust Collection with Some Work

Powerful Dust Collection with Some Work

I installed a CV 1800 system a few months ago in my shop. I’m just a hobbyist, not a pro by any stretch, but I’m blessed to be able to own some nice tools. The CV takes a good amount of work to assemble and get the system running—it’s far from turnkey—but I rather enjoyed the process. The instructions were reasonably clear, and you can find YouTube videos too. The CV support was outstanding when I had questions and when one part needed to be replaced due to s...

I have been looking around for a while for some metric measuring tools, not flimsy junk, but excellent quality and price point.Everyone who did design drafting years ago knew that there were only 2 names of drafting machine heads and scales that stood out: Kuhlmann and Mitutoyo.Every engineer and machine shop operative also knew that calipers and assorted measuring devices worth having were Starrett and Mitutoyo.So I was utterly surprised to find 2 beautifully made, precise and sturdy rules b...

A must for Delta portable planers

A must for Delta portable planers

08-17-2011 04:11 AM by Kevin | 13 comments »

Not going to go into great detail here on this review. Ordered one from amazon.com yesterday and it arrived this morning. Replacing the original shroud with this one was a brease, took about 1 minute if that. I did however drill two holes in the bottom left/right of the shroud and into the planer to make it more sturdy. Hooked up a 6.5hp shop vac to it and planed some boards. Taking 1/16 – 1/8 off each pass the shop vac didn’t leave any chips/dust behind. For $25 dollars...

Have I mentioned I have the best wife in the world! Found this under the Xmas treel. What a beauty, feels good in the hand, nice heft to it. Will have to research how to prep it for use and the sharpening angle etc.. More review will be added later, but see no reason not to do 5 stars. I pulled it apart and put it ack together and no pieces were broken/cracked etc. Hmm, I’ll have to cut some dado’s and tennons so I can use it. LOL! Like i need an excuse.

Industry and trade shows include steel rolling and other racks for drying painted (sprayed) panels, cabinet doors, or simply flat works products. Typical steel rolling racks cost $200 and upward, require appreciable floor space, particularly if used infrequently making them unsuitable for the hobbyists. The August IWF industry show in Atlanta unveiled a new product that solved this need for the small user. See Erecta-rack.com I have no connection to or vested interest in this company, t...

Yep, I got taken. Well, to be fair, I received what I paid for. Perhaps you’ve heard the siren-song of woodworkers showing how you can quit your day job and make $150K per year selling stuff you make in your shop. Well, against my better judgment, in a weak moment I paid the $37 for the book and plans download. If you didn’t have access to the internet and you’d never seen a woodworking forum, then MAYBE there may be some new ideas in here. If you’re a member of this f...

Citristrip stripping gel

Using this on my jointer rebuild. It works really good on metal but not sure on how it works on wood.You need to take your time let the product do the work and be patient. I scrubbed it after letting it sit. If you dont get it all of you may need to put a little more on and let that sit. A little paint thinner will help clean it up also.Good luck if you need to strip something.
