Ridgid T1300 Planer Blade Replacements

Ridgid T1300 Planer Blade Replacements

07-02-2013 08:41 PM by OakHill | 18 comments »

As an owner of the Ridgid T1300, buying new blades from Home Depot orRidgid is darn near impossible. While searching the internet for replacementsI found the Powertec 128070 blades. Advertised as “Replacement blades forthe T1300” Two sets were purchased through Amazon for $25.19 per set. A few dollarsless than the price at Home Depot, when they were available. Upon receiving the blades the first thing I did was inspect the blades using aMicrometer. The thickness was .073, the same as...

Great value in the ongoing Dust Wars saga...

Great value in the ongoing Dust Wars saga...

03-03-2008 07:43 PM by Greg3G | 14 comments »

I purchased this at the Baltimore Woodworking Show recently. I was in the market for one (cough, cough, wheeze ? ) and was looking at both the Delta and the Steel City. They had received the best reviews so I thought I would look at them first hand. The found that the both machines were fairly comparable in statics but the Steel City came at a better price; I picked it up for $320 including tax which was about $40 less than the Delta. I do like the 1 micron bag that comes standard. I also ...

my first apron - Thanks Marc!

my first apron - Thanks Marc!

03-23-2014 01:52 PM by rhybeka | 9 comments »

I’ve been looking for a while for a shop apron that met my criteria – had to have pockets for pencils, fit over my winter clothes, take abuse (since I seem to be hard on all of my clothes), and, well I guess this is where being female comes in, not be butt ugly. I’ve had my eye on TheWoodWhisperer's shop apron a while now, just haven’t been able to pony up for it. When I was able to a few weeks ago, I went to order it and saw it was out of stock. I emailed and asked...

Great saw well worth the money!!

Great saw well worth the money!!

09-05-2011 06:42 AM by SCABrown | 6 comments »

I’m starting over with my workshop and this is my First purchase for it. I ordered this saw back in June from my local Woodcraft, It arrived 3 weeks later in their store for me to pick up. The saw and rail came very well packaged and received no damage from UPS’s punishment. The manual is very nicely done and is easy to read. The action is like butter and glides effortlessly down the rail. You will cut the splinter strip on the guide rail on the first cut, but that is normal so do...

Power Carver

Power Carver

I was looking for a power carver the other day and much to my suprise they are rather expensive. I got to thinking about what tool could I adapt. I went to Menards and was looking around at different tools and came accorss the Tool Shop Engraver, variable strokes per minute from 4200 to 7200, for 9.99 how could I go wrong. I got it home and discovered the carbide cutter is held in with a set screw. I removed the cutter and began thinking what could I use for a chisels. I had purched from Flee...

These make you feel manly!

These make you feel manly!

09-02-2011 01:18 AM by Alster | 4 comments »

I bought three of these chisels from Ray Iles while living in England. Ray and everybody at The Old Tool Store were terrific—friendly and helpful and quick. And for whatever reason, despite a pretty weak dollar, the price was much better there than I could find them for in the states. When I got home from England, I set to work flattening the backs and putting an edge on. I was dreading this, as I’ve read other reports that the D2 steel in these can make that a chore. But they ...

Great for Sanding Maloof Inspired Rocker Laminations

Great for Sanding Maloof Inspired Rocker Laminations

04-21-2010 07:20 PM by Charles Brock | 3 comments »

I build Maloof inspired rockers and chairs for customers as well as teaching classes and producing instructional bundles for my chairs. You can see my work at www.charlesbrockchairmaker.com. Some of my hobbies include playing guitar, dobro and own several other string instruments. Recently, I was surfing a supply and tool site for luthiers called Stew-Mac. I saw a tool called “The Luthier’s Friend.” It was designed to sand small strips of binding or wood that are used to ...

NEW VACUUM

NEW VACUUM

08-21-2008 07:09 PM by John Gray | 5 comments »

I purchased this vacuum about a month ago and it has been used ALOT. If has become a favorite tool, it’s so handy to use with the long hose. I also purchased the Ridgid Hepa filter – Model VF6000 which is washable. Filters 99.97% of particles as small as .3 mirons. Now the shop is much cleaner because the 22’ hose lets me go directly to the tool instead of having to move the big and cumbersome Craftsman around the shop, the Craftsman is now dedicated to the table saw unt...

I can't believe these are 8 bucks

I can't believe these are 8 bucks

06-10-2013 08:57 PM by lumberjoe | 18 comments »

I didn’t feel like making my own bench dogs, I also didn’t feel like paying tons of money for them. In one of my many recent trips to woodcraft, I saw these and decided to try them out The Good They work. They fit snugly in the 3/4” holes I drilled and laid flat on the bench top. They are nylon, but appear to be very strong. I clamped down on my vise way more than I needed to a few times to see if they would crack or give. They didn’t. The flat faces are just the...

”Cut perfect inlays with this Inlay Kit and your shop-made template. Simply slide on the bushing to rout the cutout and then remove the bushing to cut the perfectly matched inlay. Includes a 1/8” solid carbide spiral cutter and alignment pin. Fits Porter Cable® routers and other routers with template guide adapters.”Everything was there and fit my new Trend T4 just fine although there were two things that bothered me. #1 – the alignment pin is 8mm! (not 1/4”),...
