Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

04-27-2011 04:57 PM by dedalo | 22 comments »

Last week I received this saw blade from Rockler. This is my first “professional” blade, until now just used the blades that came with the machines I bought or some cheap blades I could get a local stores. In my last proyect I realized 2 things (using the dewalt blade that came with the saw) 1.- Big quantity of wood consumed by each cut2.- The finish was VERY poor I couldn’t glue the faces without sanding… The things that made me choose this blade: 1.- ...

THIS BLADE IS A WINNER

THIS BLADE IS A WINNER

Well, at the Seattle Woodworking show ..I watched them slowly push the Forrest blade thru the wood and no burn marks…..I was fascinated …I even came back the next day and watched again ….I finally bought a Chopmaster online from Forrest for my Radial arm saw …I received it and it sat on the saw table for 2 weeks as i was in the middle of other things …I finally installed it on my Craftsman Radial Arm saw and at the first cut ..I was amazed . Yes …oh man &#...

Project V2 Venturi Vacuum Press Kit

Project V2 Venturi Vacuum Press Kit

12-24-2013 06:29 AM by whit | 5 comments »

I couldn’t decide if this should be a project or a review. Technically, it’s both, I guess. The project – a vacuum press – is based on the V2 Venturi vacuum press kit (i.e. you need an air compressor) from http://www.joewoodworker.com. The Project Kit I bought the kit a while ago. Well . . . a few years ago. OK, it was 2006! I wanted to let it age before I put it together. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! The build is really simple...

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

02-28-2010 04:33 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

This is my first good plane, in fact it cost more than my 3 other planes all together. I needed a plane that could get into corners, and trim along edges. I wanted to get the 92 it had a 3/4” width as opposed to the 93 with a 1” width, but the 92 was on back order until mid april. My needs are my needs so here goes the 93. It took only a couple of minutes to flatten the back of the iron and hone the edge. The bottom seems pretty flat. After a couple minutes of set up and ad...

BowlSaw

BowlSaw

I had a very good experience with the 6” BowlSaw. The pictures show a black walnut blank that I now have a bowl and another piece that can be turned into a smaller bowl and/or a box. I followed the instructions included with the tool and did not have any problems. I started at 120 rpms and finished at 400 rpms. Will probably get the 8” tool and thus can core larger blanks and possibly make 3 bowl out of one blank.DougTx

As I reread my prior post on the sawstop a few things things come to mind. The brake is triggered by contact with a living thing. If you are not gripping the hot dog, we taped one to a board, the saw will cut through it. It has nothing to do with grounding or the meat. It is triggered by capacitance of your body, that contact and it is very slight, pulls the voltage down, because there is voltage on the blade through the arbor – not a simple thing to do – with very little ...

Porter Cable 1/2" Corded Drill

Porter Cable 1/2" Corded Drill

06-01-2012 06:10 AM by DawsonWoodworking | 8 comments »

I regret I dont have a picture or model number for this tool. The image is a stock photo. It was a standard issue 1/2” corded drill by Porter-Cable. I was very unhappy with this product. It only lasted one job!, the swith in the trigger failed after minimal use on the first job (I was finishing a basement), rendering it inoperable. It was still under warranty, but due to lack of time, I had to keep working so I just bought a DeWalt drill from Home Depot to replace it. I’ve seen b...

Save your money

Save your money

12-27-2011 04:49 PM by rrdesigns | 17 comments »

This jig is worthless and is being returned to the seller. The index pin is too short making registration with your workpiece difficult.The knob controlling the index pin is too close to the bottom of the jig and is difficult to set because of its small size and location. More importantly, it does not maintain its setting. It loosens slightly as you progress through your joints ruining the spacing in your workpiece. The workpiece likes to pull away from the fence (when used on a router table)...

I purchased arbortech’s contour Random orbit sander. I build a lot of maloof style furniture and this little baby is a life and time saver. If you watch the YouTube video made by arbortech. There is no BS. It works as advertised. The rubber head can be replaced if needed (15-20 dollars). It is made well and with a little care will out last me. It uses sticky back paper which you can order from arbortech or do like me buy 5 or 6 inch discs and with a sharp pair of scissors make your...
