I've tried a few blades but this one does it.

Usually in my old Rockwell/Delta table saw I use a combination blade. I do very little crosscutting in my table saw as it’s not new and doesn’t have a super fence on it. My main use of it is to cut my wood to width in the jointing/planing process of readying the wood to use. I own a nice sliding combo 12” Bosch miter saw that I do all of my crosscutting with. The combination of the two saws lets me get by pretty good. I tried a couple of rip blades in the past few years....

Best double-sided tape I've used

Best double-sided tape I've used

06-20-2013 07:50 PM by Beezle | 6 comments »

I have tried many different methods of holding down work while routing or otherwise machining wood. Most work well enough, but I also happen to use a CNC milling machine to cut wood and in that case the material needs to be very stable and the thickness added by the tape must be consistent. Not to mention not damage anything upon removal. It’s a lot to ask and there seems to be a lot of different tapes out there. I recently noticed that Micro Fence sells a tape and I thought I wou...

These should work as advertised

These should work as advertised

Just so you know, this is the first and only time I’ve ever used a Forstner bit. I’m working on a toy airplane project and believe I’ll have a need for these (I did in my first toy airplane – for the cockpit). Woodcraft has this set on sale right now for $12.49 (through 4/2/2011) so how can you go wrong? These bits come in a nice wood case. They are stamped with their size, “China”, and the max RPM on each bit. I made a couple of test cuts with the...

A must have glue accessory

A must have glue accessory

05-12-2014 01:27 PM by Crickett | 10 comments »

No matter how silly it seems, perhaps one of my absolute favorite tools in my shop is one of the smallest and cheapest. I recently purchased Rocklers silicone glue kit complete with a silicone brush, silicone rake/comb, and a silicone tray. I also purchased separately the silicone dowell applicators. In my opinion, anything that increases my efficiency, reduces cost, and saves materials is something to at least consider. We all use glue on nearly every project, and most of us in the past use...

Accurate and Powerful

Accurate and Powerful

04-08-2010 08:18 AM by mcase | 7 comments »

I had this machine shipped from Grizzly several months ago. The shipping was timely arriving in just three business days! The machine was everything I hoped for. The tables were dead flat. They adjusted to absolute coplanar. And the machine was very powerful. I had an 1×8” hard maple board set aside just to test this machine and it trued it lickety split. I’ve been using it for months now and am very happy with this purchase. It trues up stock square and smoot...

Laguna Tools 14/12 initial review.

Laguna Tools 14/12 initial review.

09-26-2014 09:50 PM by PatrickB | 17 comments »

Hello,This is my initial review of the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw. I earlier owned the Grizzly G0555 Extreme which I sold. I pondered getting another Grizzly and found the Laguna on sale at Rockler. BY the time I was done with replacing parts on the Grizzly to reach the Laguna as it came stock I was already over the sale price so that rapidly changed my mind. I remember my old Grizzly was always a little slow on cutting but I didn’t really have any issues with it. There are some changes to th...

To Infinity and Beyond

To Infinity and Beyond

06-13-2009 07:50 PM by knotscott | 7 comments »

The 50T Infinity Combomax is the best 50 tooth combination blade I’ve tried to date. This is an extraordinarily well made blade that uses a unique ATB/R configuration that features a chamfered raker instead of the traditional flat top raker. It has very low tearout for this class of blade, and is particularly good in sheetgoods, while maintaining good ripping abilities due to it’s 12° hook. Any blade that’s designed to do multiple tasks has some inherent compromise relati...

Great video on saw sharpening

Great video on saw sharpening

11-14-2012 01:59 AM by Kreegan | 7 comments »

This afternoon I finished watching “Sharpening your handsaws with Ron Herman” on Shop Class on Demand from Popular Woodworking. It’s an online streaming version of the DVD of the same name. I enjoyed it so much and feel like I learned so much from it that I’m going to order a copy of the DVD to keep when my subscription runs out. Ron Herman is a traditional housewright in Columbus, OH, and the owner of Antiquity Builders. They specialize in period accurate home buil...

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

09-20-2011 06:18 PM by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...

Northern Tools has incompetent managers

Northern Tools has incompetent managers

12-07-2013 12:05 AM by Mike | 24 comments »

A Rant on Northern Tools Phone Customer Service: A product I purchased turned me from just wanting to know where my purchase was to being POed quickly. The agent that I was speaking to over the phone had told me that UPS had delivered my item to the USPS for delivery. Based on my UPS tracking number, it said this was done two days ago. I then asked for a status update as to when I should get my item since the USPS doesn’t take three days to deliver something from less than 40 minut...
