Big, sturdy and functional

Where Purchased: Amazon.comPrice: $29.95 From the ManufacturerThis convenient, mechanical push button switch features a large paddle “stop”, to allow you to quickly shut off power to your 120-Volt ac machinery. Placing the switch where you can use your hip or knee to bump it into the “off” position gives you the freedom to never take your hands off the work-Piece to turn off the machine. Surface mounts quickly and easily. Maximum 20-Amps. This is a nice big On/Of...

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Update: I’ve owned this sander now for over a year, and it has gotten a lot of use. It’s been a great tool with no problems, so I’ll leave the five stars in place. The original review follows: I haven’t had this sander long yet, so my 5 star rating is based ondesign and recent performance. After I have used it for a longerperiod of time, I’ll come back and update my rating if warranted. I really want to comment on two aspects of the sander design. First,t...

Well, even though I‘ve had a Wixey Protractor( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/549 ) that is dead on 100% accurate, measured against all my engineering squares and then some, At only $15 on sale, I could not resist picking one of these up.Why you might ask. Well, The Wixey even though is accurate; it has two main shortcomings. One, it is impossible to lock it in place. Second, it does not have the hold function, which should have been incorporated since it will not lock tight.On the other hand...

BowlSaw

BowlSaw

01-31-2009 03:43 PM by DougTx | 10 comments »

I had a very good experience with the 6” BowlSaw. The pictures show a black walnut blank that I now have a bowl and another piece that can be turned into a smaller bowl and/or a box. I followed the instructions included with the tool and did not have any problems. I started at 120 rpms and finished at 400 rpms. Will probably get the 8” tool and thus can core larger blanks and possibly make 3 bowl out of one blank.DougTx

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

08-05-2010 04:37 PM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

This is my first planer, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but it works great. All of the controls are easy to use, two speeds (different # of CPI for dimensioning or finishing). I like the fact that the cutter head is connected to the base with 4 risers instead of two like the DW734 and DW733 as well as the Ridgid and Ryobi planers they carry at Lowes and Home Depot. The depth adjustment is extremely easy to use and once I set it, it hasn’t moved once. The top is e...

VXB 4" Lazy Susan Bearing huge discount

01-13-2011 12:31 PM by Sodabowski | 5 comments »

Hey guys, This is mainly for you guys out there in the USA, but you never know. As you may know, US ball-bearing supplier VXB has been in the market for a very long time and sells all kinds of bearings to the whole world. The great thing about them is that despite being a huge company they also sell to individuals. And now comes the woodworkers’ part: for a limited time, they’re offering this 4” LS bearing for $0.99. Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...

Handy tools everyone should have.

Handy tools everyone should have.

I finally had a real need to use the Dremel Saw-Max I recieved for Christmas last year. Had an entertainment center to cut down for a smaller area. I wanted to make the simplest cuts to remove height from the cabinet. A straight edge and my Saw-Max did the trick. I was concerned that the abrasive type blades would not be able to cut cleanly without tearout, and may cause burning. Not to worry. This little guy is the best. I am more than pleased with the performance. I have now used ...

Combination Hex Drill\Tap Bits: Easy Installation of Threaded Knobs and Rod

Combination Hex Drill\Tap Bits: Easy Installation of Threaded Knobs and Rod

08-13-2013 08:26 AM by DeLayne Peck | 13 comments »

Maybe I just fell off the lumber truck, but I didn’t know about combination hex drill\tap bits. You don’t have to install a brass insert! Or, drill and then tap threads?! Do it all in one easy operation! Directly into wood with a low voltage driver!! I have threaded a lot of brass inserts for the jigs I’ve built, like my Rip Snorter Push Block , and thought they were a pain. And, I have read about and used various methods for installing inserts. They work, but they a...

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.

Took a couple weeks to get dust collector. Not bad. Had some hesitation with housing being plastic. Then again car intake manifolds have been plastic for a long time. It is very light. Putting it together took some patience. There are many fasteners. It would have been good to segregate them to make finding them easier. Didn’t expect to be drilling holes or applying a peel and stick gaskets. Not a big deal. Could/should have been done by manufacturer. I was surprised to find ...
