Super customer service

Super customer service

05-01-2010 07:42 PM by lilredweldingrod | 10 comments »

I just have to rant (in a very good way) about Ridgid’s customer service. I have a 1998 Ridgid table saw, Mod. TS2412. Before I became the Proud? owner, it was involved in an accident and fell out of a moving truck. In the accident, the spacer, the piece with the two 5/8 pins that the motor mounts on was destroyed. Some one that thought they were a welder tried to make a new one. As a result, when you try to cut an angle, the motor has to rise above the CI bed. It contacts the out feed ...

Bait and switch sales tactics?

Bait and switch sales tactics?

06-24-2012 07:15 PM by TroutStalker | 14 comments »

Shopclass on Demand is a webiste that contains a number of woodowrking videos. I signed up in March during a promotion that promised 1/2 price access for life. That is I paid $25 for six months access and would be allowed to renew for the same price for life. Seemed like a good deal at the time. I was initially happy with the deal. They had seeded the site with a number of good videos that they typically sell as DVDs for $25 or so. Since then they have added 2-3 more videos each week....

This review for the Harbor Freight adjustable roller stand. Item #46086. The one with the red roller. I got this last week to use as outfeed support for my planer and jointer. I needed something cheap and easy to support the long beech boards I was planing. This tool has mostly been an exercise in frustration. The bad news: Adjusting it is very difficult and highly annoying. It’s adjusted by moving the rod that holds the roller up and down within the base. This is a common...

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

03-20-2009 08:06 PM by Tony | 6 comments »

I recently purchased quite a few of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are the next progression of the old K.Body clamp from Bessey and are available in 8 sizes from 300 mm (12”) to 2500mm (98”). I found the clamps to have a professional feel of German engineering, which gave you confidence when you used them. The clamping pads stay perfectly square and parallel even when full torqued, the non mar pads are very effective on semi h...

Solidly performing planer

Solidly performing planer

......I’m too lazy to get up and take a picture just for this so I found one in which the described planer is in the background…...... After reading the reviews for the Steel City Planer I thought I’d ad my two cents, as this is a piece of equipment I’ve never once regretted buying.I’ve had the planer 2 years, have used it extensively on many different kinds of woods, and it performs very reliably. Bought it for the supposed decreased sound output as compared ...

The best book on power-tool joinery

The best book on power-tool joinery

06-01-2008 07:57 PM by Loren | 6 comments »

I have a lot of woodworking books. About 60 of them. Yeung Chan’s book is one of the best and most practicalof them all. He shows several ways to make each jointso even with a modestly equipped shop you’ll be ableto make quality joints. Yeung’s jig designs are great too. They aren’t complicatedor hard to build and he explains how to make sure theyare accurate. Gary Rogowski also wrote some great books about making joints – but if you get just one get ...

FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

The Luthier's Best Friend can help all handymen/women and woodworkers too!

I suggested some time ago that Lee Valley carry luthier’s binding tape, as it has usefulness for many of us on a day to day basis. After some searching they were able to track down a supplier and have offered it for sale on their store. Here’s an example of I use it in the guitar shop: This tape is quite simply indispensable for any woodworker and likely most home’s toolbox. The tape is strong enough to wrap around a joint and not break, while having some elasticit...

Tool Band-It By Billy Mays!

Tool Band-It By Billy Mays!

OK, Don’t laugh. My wife was browsing through a small Korean Dollar store in College Station whilst I was doing some serious research at Harbor Freight.In a big tub of discounted stuff that she found was a whole pile of “Tool Bandit’s” magnetic arm bands. She bought one on a whim, for 50¢ and put it in the trunk with the rest of her loot.When we got home she gave it to me I was somewhat surprised and the first thing I noticed was the weight of the thing. Probably...
