Awesome time saver

Awesome time saver

10-26-2011 03:21 PM by slickSqueegie | 10 comments »

This is a must have for any woodshop! This little device has an all steel body with Magnets on Three of the four sides making it increadibly versitile. It is extremely accurate as well. Use it on your jointer, Table saw, Miter saw, bandsaw, sanding stations almost any tool. It not only works like a level but you can zero it out on each individual tool you use it on. This is a must have!

Improved splitter for my Saw

Improved splitter for my Saw

01-22-2009 12:03 AM by marcb | 6 comments »

I have an older saw with a horrible splitter. I’ve often gone without or used one of those cheap snap in plastic things for ZCI if I had to have one for serious ripping. This all changed with a piece of knowledge, part number 1349941 from the Delta parts website. This easily installs into Delta saws (even my old Rockwell) and someone made a website about installing it onto a jet. The splitter is thick, so it is not for use with thin blades. A knurled nut makes it easy to rem...

This is a serious jigsaw!

This is a serious jigsaw!

05-14-2015 12:42 AM by Shadowrider | 16 comments »

I just purchaced this saw from Amazon on my Prime membership because my wife wanted some arts and craft projects cut out. They were about 16” x 20” and are going to be painted to look like a Mason Jar. I used 5mm birch ply. I was able to cut two at a time and the saw didn’t even know it was cutting anything. However a 10mm thickness in a pretty tight inside radius was a little too much for the Bosch 20 tooth Xtra-clean blade. I turned it a nice blue oxide color. Oops. ...

Very nice Magazine

Very nice Magazine

12-04-2009 04:19 PM by David Craig | 8 comments »

A friend of mine recently gifted me with a subscription to Woodsmith Magazine, a publication of August Home Publishing. I have leafed through a number of woodworking type publications over the last couple years (in fact I am a subscriber to Wood Magazine) and have often been left unimpressed with the quality of the material contained within. There are quite a few niceties that this particular publication has that many do not. I will list some of the positives that most impressed me. 1. The...

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

08-05-2010 04:37 PM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

This is my first planer, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but it works great. All of the controls are easy to use, two speeds (different # of CPI for dimensioning or finishing). I like the fact that the cutter head is connected to the base with 4 risers instead of two like the DW734 and DW733 as well as the Ridgid and Ryobi planers they carry at Lowes and Home Depot. The depth adjustment is extremely easy to use and once I set it, it hasn’t moved once. The top is e...

procom ventless garage heater

procom ventless garage heater

01-02-2014 02:16 AM by Nowa | 21 comments »

It is 10 below zero here in Minneapolis. With this little procom ventless heater, it is 72 degrees in my garage. http://www.usaprocom.com/product_category.php?choice=1&sid=1&prod=21 I am extremely pleased with the purchase. It mounts to the wall with 2 screws and takes a natural gas line that our hvac technician was able to run up from the basement and hook up in 35 minutes. Since there is no external vent, I did not have to run a stack out through the roof. The results sp...

CMT Orange, Saw blade cleaner

CMT Orange, Saw blade cleaner

05-20-2013 06:59 AM by CalgaryGeoff | 17 comments »

This is my first product review I’m writing, I can’t help myself. I’m impressed with the product so much I need to share my experience with it. I never took before pictures as I never believed it would work so well. I cleaned three blades and I thought all required sharpening and had broken teeth, ok but close. They were full of pitch and tar from all the rough timber I use so I finally got to it as they were all off the saw since the dado stack was on. This picture sh...

I cant say too much about edge retention b...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Hey guys, This is mainly for you guys out there in the USA, but you never know. As you may know, US ball-bearing supplier VXB has been in the market for a very long time and sells all kinds of bearings to the whole world.

Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...
