A Good Value

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...

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

03-25-2013 04:33 PM by scarpenter002 | 6 comments »

Ordered these clamps from Woodcraft to go with my DeWalt TrackSaw for $44.99. Purchased these at a 10% discount in December. Watch for their “10% off all DeWalt” sales to order items like this, as they do not normally go on sale. It was shipped direct from the manufacturer. I have used these with both the TrackSaw and Router adapter. Features:These slide into the bottom of the track and quickly can be engaged or released with one hand. (very similar mechanism to the Quick-...

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

10-27-2013 02:14 PM by b2rtch | 2 comments »

While I am writing reviews, I would like to add my name to the long list of Byrd Tool ’s satisfied customers. The date on my blog tells me that I installed this head on my 8 inches Powermatic jointer 445 days ago. Of course I do not use this jointer everyday, yet I never had to replace a cutter , even if one has a small chip .Not only this cutter head gives a wonderful finish but in addition it is very quiet, thing that I really enjoy.The 3 HP motor that I installed in this jointer h...

Great so far!

I just purchased one of these units last week. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, but I have running at table height for now just to check it out. I had been planning to build my own filter like this, but for the price it was hard to pass up. Building a similar unit from scratch would probably cost close to the same plus the time to round up the components and assemble it. I was pleased with how quiet the unit was for the amount of air it was moving. I have only used it duri...

One Year Later...

One Year Later...

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...

I will have to come back after I get some time using this band saw so please consider this as a first impression review. I took receipt of the saw this afternoon so I have only performed the un-boxing/assembly and did a few test cuts in maple. The packaging was top notch on-par with the packaging used by SawStop. Assembly was quick and easy with help from my 10 year old daughter, all said and done took maybe 2 hours to assemble with her help and us taking our time so I could explain things...

What a value

What a value

07-15-2011 05:38 AM by BentheViking | 2 comments »

So I had wanted an air compressor, but didn’t really feel that I had the space and money for one. I felt that a table saw would be a much more worthy purchase. At the same point I am always looking into what new tools I can buy and poking on homedepot.com I found this guy. Originally $60 but they had it down for $40. I had some credit card rewards so after shipping and tax it only cost me like $13. This is a reconditioned kit and while it certainly looks it (some small scratches and ...

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

11-10-2013 07:54 PM by HillbillyShooter | 24 comments »

Some time ago, and without going into details, water got onto the out-feed table of my PowerMatic 60 long bed jointer. I use TopCote (now made by Bostik) on a regular basis to protect my tool tops, but it didn’t help prevent the rust or remove it. I was able to get the “red” rust off with steel wool and Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection. However, a black/gray stain remained which I couldn’t get off. This stain is shown in the second picture above. Recently I learned about a ...

A Quality Square

A Quality Square

06-09-2011 09:57 PM by brtech | 7 comments »

I’ve been trying to score a Starrett 4” double square on Ebay for a couple of months. I use a snipe service and have bid around $35 on any reasonable item, adjusting based on shipping charges and condition. Lost out on at least a dozen. The going rate is $45+. I scored a 12” combo square with the protractor head and the regular head for $39, but couldn’t get a plain double square. This one is $36.50 new. It’s a bit much, but not bad. It’s very nice...

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

10-21-2014 07:51 PM by gfernandez | 13 comments »

Two years ago I took a woodworking class here in NC with Gregory Paolini and built a bow arm Morris chair (see attached picture). Although there were a few bumps along the way, the main one being he was short an instructor and we all went home with unfinished pieces, it was still a great time and the 6 of us learned a ton of useful woodworking knowledge. Greg was also readily available via phone and email with the many questions I had after the class ended regarding getting my project complet...
