Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

08-31-2009 09:52 AM by velocette | 5 comments »

I have the 3 1/4 HP Triton router and over time have been reading the reviews and note the main complaint is the under the table adjustment. In Australia where the Triton company started there is a large range of wood working accessories. The Triton router table provided easy access to the ratchet winder and the fine adjuster, there is also a dust collector bucket that has two inputs one for the table and one for the router and the bucket is attached via another hose to a vacuum cleaner. I...

Bait and switch sales tactics?

Bait and switch sales tactics?

06-24-2012 07:15 PM by TroutStalker | 14 comments »

Shopclass on Demand is a webiste that contains a number of woodowrking videos. I signed up in March during a promotion that promised 1/2 price access for life. That is I paid $25 for six months access and would be allowed to renew for the same price for life. Seemed like a good deal at the time. I was initially happy with the deal. They had seeded the site with a number of good videos that they typically sell as DVDs for $25 or so. Since then they have added 2-3 more videos each week....

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

04-19-2016 03:56 AM by Jay39 | 5 comments »

Before I begin, I already had a Bosch 3 HP 1617 Router and a small benchtop Bosch router cabinet. Changing bits were a chore (usually ending up with cuts on hand when changing), and I did not enjoy the routing experience. In fact, I rarely did it because of the difficulty. Fortunately, I knew that as a wood worker, routing is an important technique that can enhance many projects. Well, this just in! JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Complete Router Table System! System came in 3 mid-size boxes, ...

12-1/2" benctop planer

12-1/2" benctop planer

01-08-2009 05:57 AM by rwyoung | 7 comments »

For the same reasons I wanted a benchtop jointer, I wanted a benchtop planer. There are a few reviews of the 13” model around and looking at their manals on line, the 12-1/2 is quite similar and somewhat cheaper. The unit came well packed with two pieces of form fit styrofoam and a nice heavy poly bag to protect the planer. Also in the box was a chip collection shroud with a 4” port in addition to the stock deflector. As near as I could tell, the collection shroud is a ̶...

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...

Night and Day

Night and Day

08-22-2013 06:56 PM by mummykicks | 16 comments »

Bought one of these at HD last night and changed out my Bosch 60T blade that came with my Bosch gcm12SD miter saw, and the difference is indeed night and day between the two. I was getting clean cuts with the stock blade, but it was burning the cuts regardless of how fast or slow I seemed to feed it. I read good reviews about other freud blades here, so I decided to give it a shot.Wow! absolutely effortless cuts. There is just no comparison to the stock blade. I can’t even hear it cutti...

Really nice sander

Really nice sander

02-14-2010 03:09 PM by CCWoodcrafts | 7 comments »

I needed to get a sander that hooks right in to my shop vac. My old craftsman doesn’t.I got this at Home depot based on review there. What a difference! You can hardly feel it vibrate, dust collection is superb, variable speed. I can’t believe I suffered with that old craftsman all these years. I’m not a big brand loyalist and had the Dewalt and PC in my hands but decided to give this a try as my Ridgid saw saw has been such a work horse. I’m glad I did. Does anyone k...

Alone in the Wilderness

Alone in the Wilderness

If not for the viewing of this very interesting documentary woodworking may have never gotten into my blood as strong as it has. This documentary is many things in one, part nature hike, part meditation, part woodworking…..and in all parts a wonderful journey of a man that decided to live his life his own way. Richard Louis “Dick” Proenneke (born May 4, 1916 – April 20, 2003) was a retired highly skilled mechanic living in Alaska that took his modest nest egg and decided ...

Bought one this evening!

Bought one this evening!

04-23-2010 02:06 AM by Knothead62 | 10 comments »

Based on the reviews here on LJ forum and a good review in WOOD magazine, I took the plunge and bought one at Lowe’s this evening. I had saved up some money and have it in the garage, ready to open, read the manual (real men don’t read the manual), build a stand for it and make lots of wood dust or chips, whatever it makes. I’m going to plane some scrap pine to get used to it and make any necessary adjustments . The LOML wants a dining table. I have a stack of pecan that...

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...
