Porter-Cable Porter Cable 1.25 HP Compact Router Fixed/Plunge Combo Kit

07-08-2012 01:49 AM by Roger | 11 comments »

This is a really nice fixed and plunge base compact router. I know I will use this much in the future for smaller routing jobs. Lotsa power, ez to use, gr8 quality. I got it at a really super price a while back, and I finally got round to using it. I cut the slots in my “football helmet” steadyrest jig that I made for turning long stock, like cane/s, spindles, etc. This worked very nicely. I look forward to using it more for many things. Not much of a review, but, I would say if ...

The only WW machine I've regretted to date

The only WW machine I've regretted to date

04-18-2016 02:33 AM by Bear1219 | 23 comments »

-1 star for poor fit and finish-1 star for constant sensor failure-1 star for poor customer service I’m usually very happy with all the major woodworking machines I’ve bought, with the exception of my dust collector. It has been the biggest regretted/mistake I’ve made to date. The pictures speak more then words. Before anyone says anything, Yes I did assemble the unit correctly and spent a lot of time doing so making sure it was correct. All connections either have silico...

A comfortable Dust Mask RZ Mask

A comfortable Dust Mask RZ Mask

03-26-2016 01:57 AM by gpastor | 7 comments »

I really don’t like wearing dust masks in the shop. I try to catch the dust right off the Machine and try not to let it go airborne. I have tried just about all types of masks being dust mask or respirators and I never liked any of them. Some of them made me feel claustrophobic, sweaty and just terribly and comfortable. And none of them have ever been safety glass friendly. Either fogging up the glasses or having straps interfere with the temple sides. And I don’t care to s...

Nice Left-Blade Saw

Nice Left-Blade Saw

07-31-2011 07:41 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I have really enjoyed my new circular saw since my skil saw bit the dust. I have remodeled a commercial office, and built some wainscoting with it and can now give it favorable reviews. I like the left blade for better sight of your cut line. I has plenty of power, and is easy to use. It follows a clamp-and-cut straight edge well, and easily breaks down sheet goods for cutting at the tablesaw. It doesn’t have a safety switch on the trigger, but I always use the blade guard so it wo...

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

01-19-2013 02:57 AM by Steve | 6 comments »

Well finally recieved my saws after 5 weeks’s of waiting. Both saws were shipped in sturdy wooden packing crates, and were pretty well fully assembled. They were covered in plastic and some type of grease preventing them from rusting during transport. Neither saw had one scratch or any paint problems. I was very happy to recieve them in this condition. One major problem they sent the wrong fence and rails with the Cabinet saw, now I am waiting again. Hopefully it shows up soon as I a...

my dust deputy works great too. the shopvac is clean. i strapped my dd to the shopvac with a rachet strap. i had to cut 2 hourglass-shaped spacers (out of 2×4) to get a good and even ‘lock’ between the cylindrical bucket and the cylindrical shopvac. (trace the bottom of the 5 gal bucket for the bottom spacer, and the top of the bucket for the top spacer). i mostly just pick it up to move it, but it also rolls/drags ok.i also suck a small amount of water straight into the...

Easy to use - seems like a pretty good deal

Easy to use - seems like a pretty good deal

07-14-2012 01:20 PM by Chris Campbell | 17 comments »

Bottom line up front – pretty nice little tool for moderate use with a few limitations for a good price. Some caveats: I am fairly new to woodworking and don’t have deep experience with a lot of tools. I gave this product 4 stars based on the fact that I think it works well, but I feel like five stars should be reserved for “the best of the best.” (Like grade inflation and such). So, four is a pretty good rating and means I would recommend it to a friend, even a ...

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

07-28-2008 04:08 AM by Sawdust2 | 10 comments »

Saturday morning I was lying in bed and on the TV was the lovely Jodi Marks touting the MultiMaster. Now, it’s difficult not to do what Jody says, she being all wonderful and woodworky. And my wife had already decided that we (I) were (was) going to refinish the kitchen table (as opposed to the dining room table). You can see it in the photo. This top is veneered out of some unidentified wood that looks like a cross between birch, maple and European Beech. But the edging was shaped w...

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

03-31-2011 03:00 AM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

The 4210 dovetail jig is easy to use, and the template is thick aluminum. Most other jigs in the $100 price range seem flimsy or use plastic templates. I was impressed how large and heavy this jig is. The included dovetail jig and bushing let you get right to work – no more trips to the specialty woodworking stores. The bit is carbide tipped, and very sharp. It is 1/2” shank and cuts effortlessly. I found the jig in stock at Lowes. By by 4th try I was cutting perfect doveta...

Nice little woodworking Calipers for the money

Nice little woodworking Calipers for the money

01-21-2010 08:49 PM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

I picked up the Cen-Tech 6” Digital Fractional Caliper over the holidays for $25 at Harbor Freight. It seemed like a pretty decent price compared to what I had seen for similar models at other stores. Overall I like it a lot. I have used regular calipers before but this is my first set of digital calipers and I have to say I am never going back. I bought this model because it does fractions but I don’t really use the fractions setting because I tend to think in thousandths of ...
