Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

05-10-2010 08:09 PM by b2rtch | 28 comments »

I went to buy this fence last Thursday to mount it on my HF band saw.I mounted it Saturday and yesterday Sunday.I am mechanic by trade and it is my job to make stuff work, no matter what.Well, this fence was a challenge. I was expecting an easy and straight forward installation, the installation was anything but——The table had two threaded holes in the front which lined up with fixation holes in the fence but contrary to what it is supposed to be , when using these holes the fenc...

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

05-30-2014 02:36 PM by Billy E | 1 comment »

This review is for the 10-inch, 48-tooth, ultra thin kerf (5/64”) version of the TS2000 blade. I have used a number of different blades including cross cutting blades up to 96 tooth and ripping blades down to 24 tooth. Most are freud, some are dewalt,one delta, etc… This is my first Ridge Carbide blade. I got the 5/64” version because I am using a fairly underpowered Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I’ve always used thin kerf (3/32” or thereabout) with the sa...

The Go-to standard for Pipe Clamps

The Go-to standard for Pipe Clamps

12-15-2013 03:40 AM by paxorion | 10 comments »

After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I decided it was time to begin my pipe clamp collection. Binge watching episodes of New Yankee Workshop must have done a number on my perspective of pipe clamps, as the only one I thought would fit the bill was “Pony Orange”. Thankfully, my cheapskate tendencies kicked in and made me look for alternatives, making the HF 3/4 Pipe Clamp Fixture the first of my pipe clamp collection....

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

03-29-2015 02:24 AM by woodenwarrior | 16 comments »

I’m pretty certain I’m going to catch crap for posting this product for review because it’s not necessarily a woodworking product but I believe that once you hear me out you’ll think twice and be willing to give the product a try. Every wood worker gets boo-boos. It’s in the nature of our passion. I have yet to find a band-aid like product that will sufficiently cover the wound and stay stuck while still being able to use my hands in the motions I require whe...

Bosch Colt router has collet problems.

Bosch Colt router has collet problems.

11-02-2015 10:53 PM by PatrickB | 28 comments »

I thought I would add to this review due to some of the replies I have received. Every time I operated the tool I experienced an issue with either the fence vibrating loose or the bit vibrating loose. Every time I operated the tool means maybe 7 or 8 times total. It appears to me some people think “every time” to mean 150 or 500 times or whatever they want it to mean. When purchased this tool was meant to go on a cnc router build I was going to do so other than looking it over ...

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

11-12-2013 01:47 AM by CL810 | 7 comments »

I purchased this bit from Traditional Woodworker to bore holdfast holes in my workbench. It is by far one of the best drill bits I’ve used. I was drilling holes in a 4.75” thick cherry using my drill press at 500 rpm. The bit pulled itself through the board effortlessly and the holes are perfectly smooth. Same results in maple.

Major help for garage spray booth

Major help for garage spray booth

12-20-2012 05:36 AM by wwbob | 6 comments »

My garage is my workshop. It is also my spray room. Each time I spray, I need to drape sections of the garage with some form of plastic. I had just about given up spraying due to the hassle dealing with the 9×12 plastic sheets, then I discovered 3M Advanced Masking Film. The film comes in a roll about 12.5 inches tall. You tape the film up without unfolding it. Once the 12.5 inch wide film is taped up, you pull down on the back of the film and the it unfolds to a full 99 inches. I...

Onsrud 12 tooth 8" Dado set

Onsrud 12 tooth 8" Dado set

10-25-2011 06:27 PM by Dallas | 1 comment »

I bought this set, mostly on a whim, since my BT3100 isn’t really built for 8” dado blades. Nevertheless, being addicted to eBay as I am, I was looking at different Dado sets and found this one to be inexpensive, but with my experience with another Onsrud blade thought I would take a chance. When I received the blade set, in a nice wooden box, I just had to try it. I have lately been trying to make some box joints in Chinaberry wood, which is really brittle. My usual method is ...

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

12-27-2011 01:37 AM by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...
