Solid router but obsolete design

Solid router but obsolete design

12-13-2010 03:50 AM by Chelios | 16 comments »

I got this router, guide and dovetail jig because I wanted to make a small chest of drawers and thought this would be the way to go. I have used the router several times after that but I wasn’t really liking the clean up after the job was done. Dust collection is not part of the design. PC relies on an obsolete design and this is the main reason for giving it 2 stars. The positive- The tool looks like it is never going to brake and it certainly runs that way, the base has a nice...

It's worth it.

It's worth it.

Over the last decade or so that I’ve owned my Craftsman contractor’s saw, I’ve come to demand the utmost, penultimate level of mediocrity from it while telling myself that the jump from this saw to the Powermatic 66 is sort of like jumping from my $500 Remington 1100 shotgun to a $3000 custom Baretta over-under: the object is to break clay birds, right? And both throw a lot of lead in the air, which is all that counts, right? And yet, I’ve learned to tune my table sa...

Rockler customer service rocks

Rockler customer service rocks

07-13-2014 03:25 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

A little history. About 5 years ago I bought a mini bench top router table from Rockler. After two moves and some mishaps the mdf subfences were ruined so I needed new ones. I didn’t want to make my own so I contacted Rockler to see if I could order these parts. Rockler answered my email promptly with the information that they didn’t make that size anymore but that the longer ones for their regular table would fit, but would stick out at the sides a bit. And they asked what m...

Accuracy out of the box

Accuracy out of the box

07-24-2008 05:54 PM by Michael Brailsford | 11 comments »

I have owned a Rockwell Unisaw for 4 years now. I bought it used from the US Army. It had the original fence on it. It was a constant job to keep it aligned and semi accurate. I recently was able to purchase the Delta 36-U30 Unifence. I took only about an hour to assemble it. It was amazing after I was done to do my first test cut. I set the curser at 6” and made my cut and low and behold it came out to six inches. Coming from what I just had all I could say was WOW! With my o...

For christmas my Grampa came and as a big present upgraded my shop. He bought me a craftsman stool and a kreg pocket hole jig. The craftsman stool was the first thing I saw and I loved it. Its ajustible so you can raise and lower the stool. Its $49.99 regular but he said he got it on sale for $29.99! Its a great stool and highly recomend it. 5 Stars. AJ

 great little workhorse for the money

great little workhorse for the money

I got this planer a few months ago and since i got it i have been giving it a lot of work. i have probably run close to 200 bf through this planer and i am still on my first set of knives. which is good considering some of the woods i’ve put through it including hickory which is a demon to any blade. its is a nice little powerhouse though. it works wonderfully and has the power to take the full 1/16” off of any board with ease. it is very heavy duty too. i have stood on it before ...

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

12-10-2013 09:45 PM by jeffk726 | 22 comments »

After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing. After receiving my jointer 1 week after purchase, I was excited to get it up and running. First came the uncrating. The packaging was adequate as th...

It's made of plastic !

It's made of plastic !

06-03-2011 03:49 PM by richgreer | 18 comments »

I use my digital calipers a lot and I tend to be hard on them. I’ve dropped them and poured stuff on them and it seems like I am buying new ones often. I saw this particular caliper on sale for half price – only $14.99. I didn’t need one at the time, but I know that I will eventually need another one so “why not?”. I never imagined that it would be made of plastic. It has a very cheap, flimsy feel to it and it does not have the normal little turn whe...

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface:  Evaluation and Testing

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface: Evaluation and Testing

09-27-2012 05:37 PM by djg | 6 comments »

The DC1100 PRO (with Serial Interface) is a true laser particle counter with the ability to count particulate mater suspended the air. There are two size ranges for the PRO model: between 0.5 and 2.5 microns, and greater than 2.5 microns. Several models are available but I felt that for a woodworking shop the stuff less than 2.5 microns was the most important particulate to measure since it is probably the most dangerous. This was purchased through a group buy offered by the Canadian woo...

It worked good three times.....just not in a row

It worked good three times.....just not in a row

02-11-2014 08:45 PM by jakeprater | 12 comments »

I bought this back in December, and it worked great right out of the box. It has a nice fit and finish, and doesn’t feel like cheap plastic. I like the rubber handgrip. The mail tray feels a little light weight, but it functions smoothly, so no real issue there. I also bought Bostich 1 inch nails to go with it – I tried not to skimp too much. So I opened it up, put a few drops of oil in the inlet, and a couple in the oil slot on the front, and hooked it up to my comp...
