A great portable saw

A great portable saw

01-15-2008 03:09 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I purchased the TS2400LS in late December 2006. I needed a powerful and feature laden portable table saw for my workshop. I reviewed other portable saws including: Bosch 4000-09 Dewalt 774 I did not review the Makita 2704X1 it was not available at that time. I decided on the Ridgid for several reasons:- the non-pneumatic tires make for a more stable base- T- tracks in the table top- beveled top edge allowing the miter to slide easily- the slots in the fence allows jigs to be easil...

Amazing Product

Amazing Product

12-05-2008 06:55 PM by Bob42 | 1 comment »

I checked this out after reading mjon’s review on this. I always liked using bees’s wax paste but was willing to try the spray. So, I looked on the internet and found it. The Original Bee’s Wax. Well let me tell you I cleaned my kitchen cabinets and then waxed with the Bee’s wax and they came out great, but, the best part of this product is when you use it on glass and granite or marble tops. Last year I renovated our bathroom and put in shower doors but the glass gets...

Nice product, with a few gripes

Nice product, with a few gripes

Ordered this from Amazon.com about three months ago. The lift is impressive upon first inspection. The heft and quality of the fit and finish gives you the impression that it’s well built. This was replacing a regular JessEm router plate, so it was brain-dead easy to install – just remove the old plate, install the lift and then level it. This is where I ran into issues with the first lift. There are threaded through holes all the way around the plate, and you thread the supp...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

01-20-2016 05:54 AM by ajthomas5009 | 8 comments »

For Christmas I received the Veritas Cabinet Scraper w/EX blade. I really wanted a cab scraber because I hear they were amazing tools and I heard it was hard to beat the price of the Veritas Not to mentioned it was slightly bigger than the No 80 and had a thicker blade. Well let me tell you Veritas didn’t disappoint. out of the box the fit and finish was excellent, the sole was flat and the blade was ready to take a decent shaving. I used the stock blade for a cpl of hrs with no prob...

Lasted <1 day

Lasted <1 day

seems like I had my share of disappointing experiences with tools last couple of weeks, but I guess a bad review is more valuable than a good one as it can save the agony of others. so here goes: I had a dewalt cordless grinder for years, and although I have very limited use for it, I find it very valuable, since when the time comes – there’s nothing else that can do that job as good. unfortunately my 18v batteries all died on me, and currently there is no justification to spen...

Blade alignment issues all of the sudden

Blade alignment issues all of the sudden

06-15-2011 07:06 AM by NormG | 15 comments »

I purchased this saw as an upgrade February 2010, at a very good price with the blessings of my wife. I initially had some of the same issues others had with the set up of this TS. My son saw an entry in LJ’s that very helpful and I joined. I changed the bolts, washers, etc. What was the most help was an entry that suggested loosening the 45/90 set screws in front of the blade and everything just fell right into place. The saw was packed well, it did not have damage and/or missin...

Had to Put it Back

Had to Put it Back

12-14-2012 07:37 PM by mcase | 18 comments »

I always feel bad recommending a restaurant to a friend and then they change the chef or something and the foods horrible. This is sort of in the same vein. In the past, I highly recommended the Woodriver V3 planes. I own three Woodriver V3s , #4,#5, and #6, which are just fine. They ARE nice planes and I enjoy using them very much. However, I recently went to purchase a #3. I really wanted a #3 Woodriver, but I had to put it back. Turns out that whoever makes these planes ground ...

Initial Review - Impression

Initial Review - Impression

02-18-2016 03:06 PM by Kalison | 11 comments »

Hello, Long time lurker and first time poster. I picked up my SawStop Jobsite Saw about a month ago, maybe just a little more than a month ago… so I thought I would share my initial impressions of the saw. I began my tablesaw days with a skil saw jobsite saw… which was the first and worst saw that I have ever bought. I used it enough to finish a simple project or two, and then I put it in the corner. Accuracy, Repeatability and Reliability were all very poor… but,...

You get what you pay for?....Maybe less

You get what you pay for?....Maybe less

I purchased these early this year. My decision was based on somewhat good reviews and mostly price. Based on the amount of usage that the dado set would see, I didn’t want to spend 200 on the Freud SD508 set which is what I had in mind in the first place.I also skipped over the Oshlun SDS-0842 set due to noticeable bat ears claims and reviews.So today I had a chance to put this set to test after making a zero clearance insert for this set. Well, I’ll make it short. Clean bottom and no bat ear...

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

07-18-2013 03:53 AM by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I just received my set of Naniwa Super Stones. I got a 1000, 3000, & 8000 grit stone. I also got the Norton flattening stone. The stones were very flat and ready to use out the box. They come mounted in a cheap plastic base, but it seems sufficient. The supposed advantage of the superstones is that they don’t need to pre-soak. You just add water and sharpen. I purchased them from Sharpening Supplies online. I paid about $140 for the set. I immediately sharpened my #4 bailey p...
