Ridgid Mobile Miter Saw Stand AC9945, Up For Review

Ridgid Mobile Miter Saw Stand AC9945, Up For Review

12-18-2014 08:10 PM by woodshopmike | 2 comments »

This stand is really great. It’s easy to use, easy to move, and doesn’t rock or move while using the saw. Check out the video of loading and unloading the saw and stand from a pickup. No, it’s not light and if you’re slap outta shape you won’t be able to do this, but for me it sure beats heaving a full size chop saw in and out of a truck bed. The video pretty much hits the big stuff about the stand, but if you wanna read a bit more check out my blog post ...

Great workhorse Compressor

Great workhorse Compressor

04-28-2012 01:28 PM by Martyroc | 2 comments »

After 15 years with my Craftsman 3 Gallon 125 PSI compressor, the brushes finally went. I looked about replacing the brushes which cost 1/2 the price of a new unit, since I have had many years of good service from this unit, I entertained the idea of buying new brushes. That was months ago and still no compressor, (WHAT?!?, Ive been busy!). This all changed when I needed to replace the brake pads on my van, it had been so long that I had taken the tires off with a crossbar, I forgot how much ...

CV 1800 Bundle Review

CV 1800 Bundle Review

01-05-2016 05:24 AM by JBrow | 15 comments »

My Requirements and Purchase Decision. I used a ½ hp dust collector with an awful filter bag for about 10 years before I outfitted it with a shop made cyclone from the “ShopNotes” design in 1998. I used that machine up until August 2015, when I purchased the Clearvue CV 1800 cyclone bundle. It was a shop upgrade long overdue, but probably like many woodworkers, I would rather spend money on wood cutting tools than on a vacuum cleaner. My decision to upgrade dust collection occurred earl...

A Great Plane

A Great Plane

12-03-2012 03:59 AM by bobasaurus | 12 comments »

I bought this WoodRiver #6 at a Rob Cosman hand planing / dovetailing seminar. He was able to take one of these new out of the box, hone the blade, and produce a shaving about 3/10000” thick according to his micrometer. Most of us attending were impressed enough to buy one ourselves (cost about $150 at the time, though the sale has ended now). I try to follow his hand sharpening technique as well, and now I can get shavings from this plane almost as thin as he can. The first pictu...

I’ve never written a review before. But, there’s been many conflicting reviews on the internet such as Amazon and a few others about the difficulty of assembling the base. I’ve had no problems putting this together. However, the box did say “Improved Design”. Maybe that had something to do with it. It was quite simple, and the instructions were clear. The only reason I looked at the instructions was because some people were having such problems, that I was try...

3 Blade Pack - Curve/Ripping/Resawing

3 Blade Pack - Curve/Ripping/Resawing

03-08-2015 11:38 AM by Alongiron | 24 comments »

I have been a long time user of Woodslicer band saw blades from Highland woodworking but a friend of mine told me that Timber Wolf blades cut better and are less expensive, so it was time for new blades and I went to www.timberwolfblades.com and ordered the 3 blade assortment pack: One each blade for Curve, Ripping and Resawing (14” with riser & 16” saws) 105”. With Shipping thee blades came to only $70. I liked the description of the blades: “Our exclusive use of low tensi...

Nice upgrade

Nice upgrade

03-05-2016 04:07 PM by Jarrhead | 8 comments »

I’ve been woodworking for about 15 years now. One of my first machines was a Jet JJ-6CSX jointer. It is your basic entry level floor standing machine. It has served me well over these many years, but I frequently found its capacity lacking. I wanted to upgrade to a 10” or 12” jointer, but was stymied by the fact that my shop is in my basement, and the only access is very limited. So I settled on an 8”. I figured it would do 98% of all the jointing I will ever need. So, 8” it is; but wh...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

04-29-2009 04:12 PM by PirateOfCatan | 1 comment »

I bought three of the four sizes and have enjoyed all of them. The four sizes are 1/4”, 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” with a sharpener in the same folding style. I had to skip on the 1” because shipping needed to be included in the budget. They have been put through tough knots and soft woods mostly. The soft woods (pine, poplar and old weathered pressure treated) cut nice and clean. The edge was not dulled very much by the knots, no visible flattening or nicks (it di...

Totally Worth It

Totally Worth It

06-02-2011 07:17 PM by Vrtigo1 | 23 comments »

A little background to give this review some context. I am a beginning WW, been doing it about 18 months now. I am at the point where I am able to appreciate good tools and justify spending money on them. With that being said, blades have never been a high priority for me. I have been using cheap blades from home depot up to now because I didn’t think a hundred dollar blade would make a huge difference in the quality of my work. Well, I found out that I could use my Amex reward p...

Citristrip stripping gel

Citristrip stripping gel

05-22-2012 02:10 AM by dbol | 3 comments »

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.
