Great 115 Volt Saw

Great 115 Volt Saw

09-01-2009 04:11 AM by Ben | 11 comments »

I finally received my supersaw after two months on backorder. It was worth the wait. Jet ran a Fathers day deal in June and I got it cheap. Assembly I spent the better part of a Saturday putting the whole machine together. Everything was packaged well and there was no damage. I would rate the manual a 7 out of 10. I did spend 20 minutes looking for one package of bolts that they had packed inside one of the fence rails with the cap on it. I finally read the manual very closely to ...

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.

Bait and switch sales tactics?

Bait and switch sales tactics?

06-24-2012 07:15 PM by TroutStalker | 14 comments »

Shopclass on Demand is a webiste that contains a number of woodowrking videos. I signed up in March during a promotion that promised 1/2 price access for life. That is I paid $25 for six months access and would be allowed to renew for the same price for life. Seemed like a good deal at the time. I was initially happy with the deal. They had seeded the site with a number of good videos that they typically sell as DVDs for $25 or so. Since then they have added 2-3 more videos each week....

Jet 1640 EVS - First Impressions

Jet 1640 EVS - First Impressions

06-24-2017 06:40 AM by WoodworkingVet | 6 comments »

When I started turning I bought a Rikon 70-220vsr midi lathe. Its a great lathe and served my needs quite well until I decided I wanted to go bigger. Two months ago I found a Jet 1642 for sale a few hours away and later that afternoon it followed me home. What a great lathe, but it lacked one feature that I was hoping to have in a new lathe. Because of some challenges that I have with my feet and back I find it difficult at times to stand at the lathe or to bend over the bed when hollowing. F...

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

11-04-2014 06:58 PM by woodshopmike | 17 comments »

The things that make this kit great are that it’s quick and easy to use. Woodworkers are famous for “being one tool away from greatness”. Well, I’m here to say that as far as sharpening my hand tools goes, I’m set and this is the only sharpening kit I’ll be using. I’d highly recommend this product to professional and hobbyist woodworkers alike. For my complete tool review check out the post, Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review. Thanks ...

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

06-06-2015 04:27 AM by ajthomas5009 | 10 comments »

I ended up picking up a cpl of these to replace the garbage plastic OEM ones on my Cman 113 saw. I was a little lerious whether they would work because I ran across a few unhappy reviews because of difficulties modifying the fit. Well they arrived today and I couldn’t be happier! The are nice stuffy and turn real smoothly. Installation was a breeze and I don’t see why some would complain. As long as you have a drill press just bore the center hole to 1/2” then pop a 1/4&#...

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...

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...
