A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

12-15-2013 03:18 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

The HF 3/4” Pipe Clamp with Base fixture is probably the only of my many HF acquisitions that has never given me a problem. After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I took the road traveled by many a woodworker before me and began looking to pipe clamps. I began pricing out Jorgensen Pony pipe clamp fixtures and found them to be a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, so I took a chance and bought 1 fixture from HF ...

Got router a week ago, these are my first impressions of it.

Got router a week ago, these are my first impressions of it.

03-26-2012 06:08 AM by SwainCustoms | 5 comments »

Received my porter cable 893 pk from amazon about a week ago, I also received a few router bits along with it. Setting up the router was a cinch, and the fine tuning and measurement adjustments are real easy to use. I don’t know If I like how the motor locks into the base, I had figured when purchasing it that the motor had attached the same way as the older porter cable model like a cork screw. I also don’t know if I like how there is now a spindle lock for tightening and loosen...

Not Ridgid Quality

Not Ridgid Quality

10-14-2012 08:50 PM by Dan Corbin | 32 comments »

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ridgid brand, especially their table saws. I had been looking at a bandsaw from Harbor Freight, but with the Ridgid band saw only $50 more, I thought it was a no-brainer. I really should’ve saved my money for something better…. I was excited to get my new bandsaw home and start cutting up some wood. But from the get-go, this was a bad experience. When the unit finally arrived, the box was in very poor shape. Fortunately, there was e...

One Year Later...

One Year Later...

01-03-2010 05:14 PM by Xett | 8 comments »

I’ve owned this saw a little over a year now, figured it was about time to write a review. FYI; the orange box store is now stocking an updated version of this saw with a riving knife and various other updates. My saw is the older version, but from what I can tell, not much different, save some cosmetic updates and the riving knife. Out of the box, it came reasonably well tuned, though needed fixing. Aligning the blade to the slots is a matter of three allen screws and a small hammer...

Odies oil for Instruments

Odies oil for Instruments

07-04-2013 09:39 PM by GibsonWoodworking | 1 comment »

I have been using odies oil now for a few months and I am sold on it. I actually have all of the odies products and they are all wonderful and worth trying. The interesting thing about odies is that all the different products and designed to work together, meaning you can basically customize the finish to get the result you want.I have tried all the traditional instrument finishes, Nitro Lacquer, Tru Oil, Shellac, and Odies is by far the easiest to get a great finish with…. and you don&...

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

09-08-2014 01:14 AM by CharlesA | 23 comments »

I’m not that good at wearing the disposable dust masks that I have. I just don’t like them. So, I end up not wearing them all the time. I was reading one of Bill Pentz's pieces on dust collection, and he emphasized how importance it was to wear a good dust mask and recommended this 3M 7500 series mask (7501 is small, 7502 is medium, 7503 is large—I use the medium). I assumed it was really expensive. Turns out that to buy the mask and a set of 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Car...

A Good Value

A Good Value

03-17-2014 12:06 AM by Purrmaster | 16 comments »

This review is for the Diablo/Freud 10 inch, 40 tooth circular saw blade. Model number D1040X I got this at Home Depot for around $30 or so. My Freud blades needed sharpening and I needed to put something on my tablesaw. I was very pleasantly surprised by this blade. It rips almost as well as my Freud 30 tooth (thin kerf) ripping blade. It leaves a smooth finish when crosscutting. The blade stayed sharp as long as my Freud blades did. Which is unsurprising, considering it is actu...

2HP Dusty - Great Value

2HP Dusty - Great Value

11-13-2010 02:12 AM by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

I’ve upgraded from the Carbatec 1HP FM 320 to the Carbatec 2HP CT-2042 1PH. This machine offers 1500cfm and is fitted with an optional 3 micron pleated cartridge. It has a 6” inlet reduced to two 4” inlets. It’s noise level is acceptable. I have tested it out jointing a few boards not only did it collect the chips very well you could also see the dust from 2” away from the jointer blades getting sucked back in. I believe it offers great value for money.

A Better Layout Tool

A Better Layout Tool

12-20-2010 06:23 AM by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

I posted a longer review of this tool on website, but in short the Brumley Tools’ Trim Gauge has become my go to tool for measuring and laying out. It’s incredibly easy to use, more compact than a combination square, and as I typically need to do multiple layouts, it’s nice that you get three in a kit: 2 4”, 1 8”. I won’t lie and say that they are inexpensive but of late my Trim Gauges are one of favorite go to tools in the shop.

New Jointer

New Jointer

Got me a new DJ-20 to replace my 6” Ridgid. To me it’s a small aircraft carrier.I’ve not had much luck with Delta tools the last few years but decided to go with a Delta again over a General and King.Out of the 2 crates the tables were flat and in line with each other and the fence was perfect.Paint job isn’t the greatest but if the above points are perfect it’s a fabs item. If I could I’d give it 4.5 starsGreat price too at $1499 Cdn -PLUS I get to choose...
