MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

12-12-2009 04:55 PM by FlWoodRat | 8 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks, Tommy MacDonald at Major League Woodworking has done it again. Tommy is offering his first MLW DVD and the Grand Slam Tools 4-Pak as a Holiday Special for only $100. I’m very happy to have taken advantage of the opportunity. Yesterday I received my set. As expected, it was impecably packaged. Since Tommy’s 4-Pak (Bench Bat, Marking Gauge and two 1:6 paring blocks) has already been reviewed here, I will focus on the MLW Tool Box Project #1 DVD. The DVD is ...

It's a good saw for it's intended use.

It's a good saw for it's intended use.

10-04-2013 10:48 PM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

Ok, I bought one of these.It was a temporary saw and never intended to be my main saw. It is has a certain cool factor to it too. I think this is a great saw for a person who does floor installs and other small on the job carpentry work. All of the accessories are easy to access and held in place quite well. The fence worked, it came with a push stick and a miter but lets face it, a miter fence on most saws is not a top line item and it’s true in this case too. I originally bought this ...

This has been quite an upgrade from my previous methods of sanding – hand belt sanding (never comes out at quite 90 degrees), or drum sanders on the drill press (I can never find sanding drums taller than 1-2 inches. The sander is marketed to homeowners, and small businesses and it really fills a niche. It won’t replace a random orbit sander, but it is a great compliment to any shop. I selected the Ridgid sander based on my positive experience with their tools in the past (drill p...

Improved splitter for my Saw

Improved splitter for my Saw

01-22-2009 12:03 AM by marcb | 7 comments »

I have an older saw with a horrible splitter. I’ve often gone without or used one of those cheap snap in plastic things for ZCI if I had to have one for serious ripping. This all changed with a piece of knowledge, part number 1349941 from the Delta parts website. This easily installs into Delta saws (even my old Rockwell) and someone made a website about installing it onto a jet. The splitter is thick, so it is not for use with thin blades. A knurled nut makes it easy to rem...

Great, and inexpensive

Great, and inexpensive

06-28-2014 06:04 PM by Goodsh | 11 comments »

Bought this saw for $30 about 6 months ago. It is great. Cuts super fast in all types of wood often without tear out and is very easy to use. I use it for both crosscuts and rip cuts and it produces fine results in both. The blade is solid and tight in the handle. The handle is a little cheap – it’s basically just a dowel but for $30 bucks I wouldn’t expect much more. This saw is great. To be honest I much prefer this over the Veritas rip carcass saw I got for more than doub...

This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!! I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual ...

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

11-10-2014 08:09 AM by sepeck | 5 comments »

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...

Powertec 70001 Dust Collector Bag for HF dust collector is a great improvement

Powertec 70001 Dust Collector Bag for HF dust collector is a great improvement

06-05-2016 02:14 AM by DW833 | 5 comments »

I had used the bag that came with the HF 2hp dust collector since purchasing it a couple of years ago.Always had lots of fine dust everywhere in the shop. Knew that it wasn’t doing a very good job and decided to upgrade. I purchased this bag from Amazon for 29.99 with free shipping. Installation is no different than the original bag.It is certainly a thicker bag, but still fits the same as the original. The improvement in the reduction of fine dustin the shop is amazing. I estima...

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...
