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 ...

Riser Block

Riser Block

07-12-2008 11:05 PM by khop | 6 comments »

The riser block made for the Grizzly G0555 14” bandsaw also works on the older Jet 14” saw. I compared the cost and it was a no brainer. The Grizzly H3051 Extension kit does the job for only $59.00 . This kit comes complete including a new 105” blade. The blade isn’t the best, so maybe order a good one for resawing. I also equiped this saw with new tires from Rockler. Most reviews say they are the ones to get. The cost of the tires are most resonable at rockler (HUH). ...

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

10-22-2014 02:13 AM by Pezking7p | 13 comments »

I purchased this HVLP system last year during a Black Friday special from peachtree woodworking for the extremely low price of something like $70. Regular retail appears to be $120, so please keep this in mind as you read my review. The package comes with a single stage 400W turbine, about 8’ of hose, a spray gun with a plastic siphon cup, and a spare needle and a spare air filter. Everything was in great shape out of the box, just needed to clean the grease off the internals. T...

My first attempt at building from plans....

My first attempt at building from plans....

05-05-2011 09:06 PM by RONFINCH | 10 comments »

It’s a little scary stepping up your projects in size and difficulties. Since I normally am totally lost when looking at most plans, I thought this would be a good project to start with. I wanted to build this chair out of Cypress, however, my local wood store was out of premium Cypress and convinced me to use Spanish Cedar instead….... won’t do that again. I figured I might could stretch 45 board feet into 2 chairs. So, ordering 45 board feet I was charged for 62 board feet...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

02-01-2014 03:30 AM by Jeff_in_LSMO | 5 comments »

Is it weird that the whole time I was using my new Veritas Cabinet Scraper I was singing Sophie B. Hawkins’ line, “Damn, I which I was your lover,” over and over in my head? I know where it started… sorry, I was distracted by my four year old, Jane, who apparently was turned down by a boy in class today and she is really sad… back to it… it started when I took my first pass. Shhhhwit, a perfect shaving. “Damn,” the damn of amazement, not the ...

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

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-...

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.

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...

The last one you will ever need (or want)

The last one you will ever need (or want)

Good evening LJ’s, Last week I ordered and received this gripper Model 200Y, this on the verge of a cabinet job :) Well friends I put it to the test ripping anything from plywood cabinet sides to face frame materials and it lived up to their claims. the green sticky rubber really grips the wood without sliding and keeping it renewed is simply using denatured Alcohol to clean it. the plate on the bottom assists in helping rip thin stock, remove it with a simple loosening of two wing ...
