BeadLOCK system

02-29-2008 12:51 AM by jerry118 | 8 comments »

The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the gui...

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...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Festool ETS EC 125/3 5" Random Orbit Sander

Festool ETS EC 125/3 5" Random Orbit Sander

12-13-2016 03:38 PM by TechTeacher04 | 7 comments »

I spent this summer working in a cabinet shop, this was my first exposure to Pneumatic sanders. They used 3m, Dynablade and Mirka variants. I liked the light weight and low center of gravity. I have been using Dewalt and Bosch 5” Random Orbit Sanders for personal projects and in my school classes. The finish was good but I was striving for a better result and to do it quicker. I was on a waiting list for the Festool Pro 5 sanders that sold out so quickly, while waiting I stopped by the ...

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

10-27-2013 02:14 PM by b2rtch | 2 comments »

While I am writing reviews, I would like to add my name to the long list of Byrd Tool ’s satisfied customers. The date on my blog tells me that I installed this head on my 8 inches Powermatic jointer 445 days ago. Of course I do not use this jointer everyday, yet I never had to replace a cutter , even if one has a small chip .Not only this cutter head gives a wonderful finish but in addition it is very quiet, thing that I really enjoy.The 3 HP motor that I installed in this jointer h...

What a value

What a value

07-15-2011 05:38 AM by BentheViking | 2 comments »

So I had wanted an air compressor, but didn’t really feel that I had the space and money for one. I felt that a table saw would be a much more worthy purchase. At the same point I am always looking into what new tools I can buy and poking on homedepot.com I found this guy. Originally $60 but they had it down for $40. I had some credit card rewards so after shipping and tax it only cost me like $13. This is a reconditioned kit and while it certainly looks it (some small scratches and ...

Great workhorse for my woodworking, but I often wish I have variable speed

Great workhorse for my woodworking, but I often wish I have variable speed

11-26-2014 03:59 PM by paxorion | 15 comments »

This Dewalt sander was a phenominal upgrade to my old Craftsman sander. I got this sander to replace the Craftsman it because vibration feedback I felt from my Craftsman tended to leave my arm with a “funny tingling” feeling after extended use. Fearing long-term issues, I thought I was due for a replacement. Good: The sander has been my go-to sander for well over a year now. It took a little getting used to the power switch from a rocker style on my Craftsman, but over time,...

A nice tool (also sold under the Baileigh Industrial brand)

A nice tool (also sold under the Baileigh Industrial brand)

07-30-2016 08:14 PM by whope | 4 comments »

I was using a sled with my planer and the results were okay, but with large stock, it was too un-wieldly and dangerous, so when I received a nice bonus at work this past spring, I purchased this jointer. I would have preferred the 12”, but the bonus wasn’t that nice. I had to run 220v to the garage so that was almost an extra grand. I also had 20amp 110v line put in as the garage only had one 15amp outlet so I had been tapping into the garage door opener outlets as well. ...

A Bit Better

A Bit Better

08-22-2012 05:50 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 18 comments »

I had some brad point wood drill bits that were not drilling a decent hole which I was about to replace. The I remembered everyone’s advice about getting the best tools you can (within budget restraints) if you want and expect quality and long lasting performance. Well after looking and reading for some time about different bit manufacturers and user’s reports on their performance, I decided to purchase a 7 piece set of Colts for about $18.00.My God was I blown away by their pe...

6" and 12" Combination Squares

6" and 12" Combination Squares

10-14-2011 03:56 AM by DylanC | 4 comments »

Bought both for less than $20 at a local big-box store. Both checked out as square at full extension when I “showed the line to the square”. Also, both have cast steel heads and stainless rulers. The 12” has deep engravings and the 6” is etched. Both have scratch awls stored in the heads, also.
