Shelix Head Ugrades the 735 Planer

Shelix Head Ugrades the 735 Planer

01-13-2015 12:52 AM by pintodeluxe | 17 comments »

I installed a Shelix cutterhead in my Dewalt 735 planer. It is a segmented cutterhead that has a helical shape, and uses individual carbide inserts. OLD THREE KNIFE CUTTERHEAD: With the old cutterhead I was losing about 10% of my stock to severe tearout. Even switching to the slower finishing speed, and skewing the board at an angle did not correct the problem. Walnut and maple seemed to plane okay, but the figured QSWO I usually mill was a problem for the factory cutterhead. I was chan...

Poor Communication

Poor Communication

04-27-2012 12:07 PM by Bertha | 30 comments »

I ordered two woodscrews and two garters on April 3, 2012 for $320.00. I sent a total of 8 messages to check on the status of my order. I said, “I’m not asking for the World, just a bit of communication” (both on the site form and via e-mail). Without a single word, my payment was refunded on April 25, 2012. The credit hasn’t posted yet but I have every reason to believe it will. The right thing to do would have been to simply tell me he couldn’t fill the order. ...

This review for the Harbor Freight adjustable roller stand. Item #46086. The one with the red roller. I got this last week to use as outfeed support for my planer and jointer. I needed something cheap and easy to support the long beech boards I was planing. This tool has mostly been an exercise in frustration. The bad news: Adjusting it is very difficult and highly annoying. It’s adjusted by moving the rod that holds the roller up and down within the base. This is a common...

Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

11-09-2011 04:21 AM by Kelen | 7 comments »

I’ll keep my review succinct as I know there’s an extensive number of reviews on the Forrest Woodworker II 10-inch 40 tooth available on the internet (168 reviews on Amazon last time I checked). This saw blade is advertised to leave a rip-cut saw edge as smooth as if it had been sanded. I must say, the results are completely in line with those advertised. I’ve ripped several types of wood in varying thicknesses using this blade and the blade has never failed to leave a sm...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

10-03-2013 12:23 AM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

I just go this tool today. I love it. It’s a great hand tool. Pulled it out of the box and cleaned the blade and put a slight hook on the scraper and away I went. Very easy to control the amount of camber in the blade. Just a little bit and takes light wispy shavings that curl. Give it more camber and it takes a more aggressive cut. I keep an old cutting board around just for trying tools out on and see how they do. This is an end grain cutting board so it’s pretty tough. This cab...

Solid router, good value with lots of nice features

Solid router, good value with lots of nice features

10-26-2010 04:59 AM by Vrtigo1 | 9 comments »

Picked one of these guys up secondhand on Craigslist and am glad I did. This is my fourth router coming after a Hitachi M12V, PC 7518 and a cheapo Craftsman. Of these, this is my go-to router. It has enough power to do everything I’ve ever asked of it, and when using it I get the feel that it was well designed and built. It’s not too heavy, which helps a lot if you’re going to be using a router for an extended period of time. It has an extra long cord which has a power ...

The Little Victor Plane from Lee Valley

The Little Victor Plane from Lee Valley

02-29-2008 03:15 PM by rikkor | 7 comments »

I bought this little plane mostly on a whim. I am simply amazed by how useful it has turned out to be. It is easy to use either one or two handed. It has Lee Valley quality throughout. The iron was very sharp when I got it. It has a cast iron body that just feels right. I believe the current price is about $35.00.

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

02-21-2011 03:49 AM by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.
