A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

12-15-2013 03:18 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

The HF 3/4” Pipe Clamp with Base fixture is probably the only of my many HF acquisitions that has never given me a problem. After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I took the road traveled by many a woodworker before me and began looking to pipe clamps. I began pricing out Jorgensen Pony pipe clamp fixtures and found them to be a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, so I took a chance and bought 1 fixture from HF ...

More Accurate & Quicker

More Accurate & Quicker

03-06-2014 05:15 PM by OSU55 | 4 comments »

Traditionalists will roll their eyes and mumble bad words seeing a marking gauge with a battery. While not as attractive as the wood and brass version, this tool is more accurate and quicker than the old standard. It is well made and robust (unless dropped on the floor which could break the digital gauge). Made of steel it won’t warp or change with temperature, humidity, and age. The real benefit is having the linear gauge included so the distance does not have to be set using a ruler o...

Good for short term use. Lousy materials.

My Grizzly H7827 Drill Press Table is a little over a year old now, and it is useless. Well not exactly…There ARE some useful parts on it, knobs, thread inserts, T track and suck, but the main material, the melamine coated, well I guess it is supposed to be MDF, but this stuff seems more like compressed cardboard than MDF… The thread inserts that hold it down to the cast iron DP table simply fall out of the pressboard given any longish term exposure to humid environments, like,...

DeWalt Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

06-01-2013 06:59 PM by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...

I thought this may be an answer for benchtop tool dust collection. I often move and sometimes use my bench top planer and jointer outdoors in nice weather on portable carts due to my small shop space. It was rated at 300 CFM. When buying it, I thought taking dust right at the port and not having to travel through long hoses would help. It did not! The suction is poor, you could get a similar result from a shop vac if you reduce down the dust port to the smaller hose size on the vac. Like a sh...

Review of Steel City Saw after a year

Review of Steel City Saw after a year

01-19-2015 03:59 PM by _Whitey | 4 comments »

Okay, Having owned my Steel City 35911G saw for about a year now I thought I would do a little follow-up. First off, I am happy with this saw. The fit and finish are acceptable, not too beefy so as to make it cumbersome, and not to chinsy to make it rickety, if that makes any sense. If you are a woodworker who likes everything to weigh as much as a WWII era tank, you may want to look elsewhere. The Granite definitely makes this saw heavy, but the rest of the saw is practical. The situation...

Always something.

Always something.

12-28-2008 03:07 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 9 comments »

Well, it is dead on 100% accurate measured against my super square inside and out. I would give it 5 stars but falls way short in the locking department. Good for saw blades, magnet all around, (like it’s little square brother) and nice thick blades. good visible LCD, stable reading and location(not covered by blade). But have to be very careful when using it for what it was designed for that is measuring wall angles due to incredibly lousy locking mechanism.Get one if it’s on super sale.

This review for the Harbor Freight adjustable roller stand. Item #46086. The one with the red roller. I got this last week to use as outfeed support for my planer and jointer. I needed something cheap and easy to support the long beech boards I was planing. This tool has mostly been an exercise in frustration. The bad news: Adjusting it is very difficult and highly annoying. It’s adjusted by moving the rod that holds the roller up and down within the base. This is a common...

Business review for acmetools.com! Amazing, customer service is outstanding!

12-19-2013 06:11 PM by Micah Muzny | 11 comments »

I am writing this review to tell my experiences with acmetools.com. I had many inquiries about tools I was purchasing that were going to be freight items. They answered every question I had about the tools, every question about the freight and more.They were very polite, helpful, and answered questions completely. Oh and the freight shipping was free and since out of state no tax!! I was also ordering a anvil, the manufacturer was back ordering the one I had purchased. I was uneasy about it t...

Nice rasp but I wouldn't call it a chisel

Nice rasp but I wouldn't call it a chisel

02-29-2008 04:15 PM by kshipp | 1 comment »

I got this mainly as a rasp and it performs really well as that. It removes material quickly and has the flat and rounded sides depending on what you need at the time. It also has a file on the side which I haven’t really used yet but I’m sure it would come in handy at some point. The problem is they say this device is also a chisel and it even comes with the protective end cap. I could understand if they called this a screwdriver but not a chisel. Out of the box it was not ...
