Improved switch design, great dust collection

Update: I’ve owned this sander now for over a year, and it has gotten a lot of use. It’s been a great tool with no problems, so I’ll leave the five stars in place. The original review follows: I haven’t had this sander long yet, so my 5 star rating is based ondesign and recent performance. After I have used it for a longerperiod of time, I’ll come back and update my rating if warranted. I really want to comment on two aspects of the sander design. First,t...

Knew Concepts 8" Fret Saw - Great for Dovetailing

Knew Concepts 8" Fret Saw - Great for Dovetailing

07-02-2013 01:04 PM by MoKC | 8 comments »

Rating: 4 out of 5 Bottom Line: Very good fret saw offers an extremely high degree of control which saves time when it comes to fine woodworking tasks. Comes up short when it comes to material selection for the handle. Otherwise generally positive but not a necessity in the workshop given the price. Pros: -Lightweight and extremely maneuverable.-Tightening the saw blade very easy thanks to a micro-adjuster and cam locking mechanism.-Saw blade can be swiveled to a preset +45 degre...

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. The great thing about them is that despite being a huge company they also sell to individuals. And now comes the woodworkers’ part: for a limited time, they’re offering this 4” LS bearing for $0.99. Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...

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...

Sabel Block Roller

Sabel Block Roller

05-28-2012 04:44 AM by vipond33 | 10 comments »

If you ever have occasion to use masking/packing tape as a glue up clamp technique on miters or otherwise, or if you do work with veneer tape from time to time, then you just might like to have this tool in your box. Plastic laminates and general veneering are other regular uses for this roller. This is a bit of a luxury item at first glance, for how much of that type of work do most of us do? The payoff for anyone is in the quality of your work should you use it. Given a quality t...

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

06-06-2015 04:27 AM by athomas5009 | 10 comments »

I ended up picking up a cpl of these to replace the garbage plastic OEM ones on my Cman 113 saw. I was a little lerious whether they would work because I ran across a few unhappy reviews because of difficulties modifying the fit. Well they arrived today and I couldn’t be happier! The are nice stuffy and turn real smoothly. Installation was a breeze and I don’t see why some would complain. As long as you have a drill press just bore the center hole to 1/2” then pop a 1/4&#...

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)...

Over the years, like most of you, I have collected a variety of clamps, different brand, styles, sizes. Before wood consumed my thoughts, I didn’t know a bar clamp from a parallel clamp, much less they even existed. I credit Norm for my introduction. As a pup, ol’ Daddy taught me to weld so I know C-clamps. My bar clamp collection started and grew each year as Rockler and Woodcraft held their Black Friday sales. Various sizes of Jet and Rockler brand, light to medium duty bar...

BowlSaw

BowlSaw

01-31-2009 03:43 PM by DougTx | 10 comments »

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
