Good little dust collector.

Good little dust collector.

03-02-2013 08:34 AM by Addicted | 6 comments »

I was looking for a dust collector for the Ridgid R4512 table saw I just purchased. My previous saw wasn’t set up for any dust collection, so I have been fighting table saw dust for years. Don’t laugh too hard yet, because I also purchased a DELTA 50-760 to actually do my dust collection with. I saw this little PSI DC660P when I was doing my online shopping, and decided to pick one of these up. Online shopping can be dangerous to the budget. The PSI unit arived first, so ...

Solid jointer

Solid jointer

I lucked into the closeout deal at Woodcraft where it was being sold for $150. Shipping was $75. As I live in an apartment in NYC, I had it delivered to my sister’s house as she has both a garage and an SUV I could borrow to get it to my shop which is in Pennsylvania. It was shipped the same day and it arrived in three business days. I was concerned about how I would get it out of the truck, but the shipper had a liftgate and it was no problem. The best news was that it fit in my car: ...

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

02-14-2011 04:35 AM by thiel | 6 comments »

I use a Grizzly 10 inch (T10010 I think..) wet grinder to sharpen my tools. It’s a barebones machine which approximates similar tools from tormek and jet, and I’ve found its performance just fine. As I get better and better at using my edge tools, I’ve needed to get better at sharpening them, so I’ve invested some time in getting my rig up to final form. Here are some things I’ve learned: —It’s worth it to invest in a jig to hold your chisel/ir...

Super customer service

Super customer service

05-01-2010 07:42 PM by lilredweldingrod | 10 comments »

I just have to rant (in a very good way) about Ridgid’s customer service. I have a 1998 Ridgid table saw, Mod. TS2412. Before I became the Proud? owner, it was involved in an accident and fell out of a moving truck. In the accident, the spacer, the piece with the two 5/8 pins that the motor mounts on was destroyed. Some one that thought they were a welder tried to make a new one. As a result, when you try to cut an angle, the motor has to rise above the CI bed. It contacts the out feed ...

If on a Desert Island...

08-22-2012 03:46 AM by davidroberts | 16 comments »

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...

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

04-10-2013 10:21 PM by JuanGatico | 7 comments »

Hi LJs! Since I live in Colombia it’s rather difficult and expensive purchasing books, DVDs and tools in general to be shipped this part of the continent. For that reason I tried some digital downloads, specifically Christopher Schwarz’ video Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes and Jim Tolpin’s The New Traditional Woodworker. Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench PlanesAfter waiting nearly an hour I started watching the video and what...

Great storage solution.

Great storage solution.

04-23-2008 07:49 PM by GaryK | 24 comments »

Looking for someplace out of the way to store all your screws/small hardware? Want to keep the dust out? Well, here is a great solution. They are made by a company called Stack-On. Here you will find their website. They come with 12 compartments with a lid that protects the contents keeping the dust out. The lidsslide back in a little to keep them open as you can see in the second picture. They can also snap shut whenclosed. They can either stand alone or be hung on the wall. I at...

Poorly Finished Saw

Poorly Finished Saw

10-18-2015 08:22 PM by kd_walmsley | 4 comments »

Summary: Poor workmanship, poor communication, high price. Pros: The saw was in stock and shipped quickly. Very well packaged for shipping via FedEx. Cons: The saw blade was finished worse than one from Home Depot. No exaggeration or sarcasm. Refer to the posted pictures. The finish of the blade is poor with patches of dark, deep, coarse gouges, oblique to the rest of the finish, like those from a belt sander. There are numerous smaller scratches from apparent poor handling that r...

Nice Ash Smoother

Nice Ash Smoother

04-20-2013 12:31 AM by Don W | 16 comments »

I offered to do a review on the Nice Ash plane. Wood planes always intrigued me. I’ve restored a lot of them. They are stuck in corners, on shelves and above cabinets all over my house and shop. With a few exception, everyone has been made to work. The only ones I typically use though are a couple I made myself, but I normally use metal planes. I gave this a 3 and would have gone to 3.5 if I could. I believe part of the reason for the lower score is this plane is one of the first 25 ...

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

02-09-2011 07:55 PM by steliart | 0 comments »

Jebson 1409V variable, reversible corded drill & screwdriver 3/8” (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill I was looking for a small corded quality drill that will be easy on my hands to use, controllable, robust and powerful. The shop guy recommended (introduced) this drill to me and even though its price was a bit high for the moment I hold it in my hands it felt right, so I went for it. There was nothing fancy coming with it in the box, just the drill and its chuc...
