Trend T4 Router

Trend T4 Router

01-27-2013 08:31 PM by simmothewoodturner | 3 comments »

Its got a brilliant variable speed adjustment and there start/stop switch is easily reached. Although it doesn’t have a soft start, it doesn’t really need it as it doesn’t really jerk when its switched on. One of the complaints people have is there is no fine height adjustment. No there isn’t but you can buy one to screw on for a small extra cost, but this is a budget router. You can’t expect it to have everything.The guide bushes are very easily attached to t...

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.

light and strong

light and strong

03-01-2008 03:45 AM by dlgWoodWork | 12 comments »

This drill is great. It has plenty of power. The best part is it only wieghs about 3 lbs. I bought this drill about one month ago. It seems like I haven’t put is down since. I looked over several drills before I bought this one. Most woodworkers can do fine with a 14.4v drill. I looked at several of them. I figured I could get one that wieghs less than a 14.4v, but was stronger at the same time. That is why I chose this. Another cool feature is the LED light right above the trigger. I ...

Expensive Junk

Expensive Junk

12-31-2013 04:19 AM by colvinatch | 30 comments »

I bought this bit as part of a three bit set for $75.00 and had high expectations after reading about their revolutionary four blade cutting bits. I put this cove and bead bit in and after the first cut (which was smooth) one of the blades split and separated from the bit and buried itself into my router table fence. What is most troublesome of all is the fact that I communicated this to Freud with no response in over two weeks, not only does Freud have terrible quality control, now ad non-...

FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

08-13-2015 12:17 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

10-25-2014 02:57 PM by JHAstrello | 21 comments »

Like many, I started out buying a few things from Harbor Freight – for the most part because of the perceived ‘Killer Deals’ that they offer. That, and the ability to get their now famous 20% off Super Coupon that can be copied and used for any one piece of product. Here is what I have bought recently, and my experience. HF Dust System – it’s still in the box awaiting installation.HF Benchtop Belt/Disk sanderHF 2 ton Crane – primarily purchased to help m...

These Ridge Carbide blades are awesome

These Ridge Carbide blades are awesome

02-24-2015 11:18 PM by EdVE | 9 comments »

I just purchased the 8” dado set and the TS2000 blades at the Novi, MI Woodworking show (great discount if you buy both). I was a little leary as I had not seen these before. I quickly googled reviews and they were quite positive. These things cut like butter and are SMOOTH. The dado is clean with no tear out and the bottom of the dado is very smooth. The saw blade cuts to a smooth—dare I say—shiny surface. Definitely could be joined immediately. I use Forrest blade, so that...

JET 16" x 42" Variable Speed Wood Lathe WL-1642-2EVS ~ 2HP, 230V

JET 16" x 42" Variable Speed Wood Lathe WL-1642-2EVS ~ 2HP, 230V

09-07-2016 12:17 AM by XDM525 | 7 comments »

After 10 days of research and comparison I decided on a Jet . Many factors were resolved but the hangup was finding a lathe at the best price from a company that would give confidence in the purchase and the process. I wanted to save the $170 sales tax dollars too. So I got on line looking for the lathe. What I found was lots of companies that did not have the 1642 in stock. Finally, I found one on ebay (eqss1) and at a price 600 bucks less than anyone else. Too good to be true. Long...

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...
