Powertec 70001 Dust Collector Bag for HF dust collector is a great improvement

06-05-2016 02:14 AM by DW833 | 5 comments »

I had used the bag that came with the HF 2hp dust collector since purchasing it a couple of years ago.Always had lots of fine dust everywhere in the shop. Knew that it wasn’t doing a very good job and decided to upgrade. I purchased this bag from Amazon for 29.99 with free shipping. Installation is no different than the original bag.It is certainly a thicker bag, but still fits the same as the original. The improvement in the reduction of fine dustin the shop is amazing. I estima...

Pictures for Alba

Pictures for Alba

11-25-2010 07:15 PM by Bluepine38 | 10 comments »

I mentioned a cross slide rest to Alba thinking it might help him and his “Jolly Rogues” in some way. He askedme to show some pictures, so here are the pictures and my review, I will do a blog on the rebuild of this wonderful old machine later. The Cross Slide Rest was originally made by Delta to enable people to do metalwork on a lathe. I am a 71 year young craftsman with a slightly hard used body, I just did not think my parts would wear out this quick, so I have a little pro...

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...

Not Ridgid Quality

Not Ridgid Quality

10-14-2012 08:50 PM by Dan Corbin | 32 comments »

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ridgid brand, especially their table saws. I had been looking at a bandsaw from Harbor Freight, but with the Ridgid band saw only $50 more, I thought it was a no-brainer. I really should’ve saved my money for something better…. I was excited to get my new bandsaw home and start cutting up some wood. But from the get-go, this was a bad experience. When the unit finally arrived, the box was in very poor shape. Fortunately, there was e...

It sucks, in a good way.

It sucks, in a good way.

So I purchased this from a local woodcraft @ $799 (on sale till the end of March) and it was forklift loaded in the bed of my truck. It was a fairly small pallet and my wife and I were able to unload it to the garage with little trouble. (She didn’t complain too much.) I assembled it in about an hour, casually taking my time and it was pretty easy. All the tools are included to assemble, however it’s faster and easier to use real sockets/wrenches. I was able to assemble it ...

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...

Fun and affordable

Fun and affordable

05-07-2014 05:58 AM by siavosh | 4 comments »

I’ve recently acquired a full blown case of sharpening OCD, and having been inclined towards Japanese tools, I’ve started pining for natural water stones. I’m strictly a newbie, but apparently there are some advantages to using high quality “naturals” especially at the higher grits. The issue is that to get a descent one you need to fork over hundreds if not thousands of dollars because they are limited in supply. All this while synthetics are more consistent, ch...

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...

Ceiling Shop Lights

01-11-2016 12:09 AM by Roger | 36 comments »

I’ve been picking a few of these up from Rural King for the past few months, because they were originally 40 bux, and they’ll be on sale until the 23rd of this month, Jan, 2016, for 20bux. A “few” amounts to 24, which is a bunch o greenbacks, but, like I said, I’ve been getting them a little at a time. Anyhoo, I know these pictures will not do justice of how fricking bright these units are. While in the store, Rural King, they had them on an endcap with 2 of t...

Major help for garage spray booth

Major help for garage spray booth

12-20-2012 05:36 AM by wwbob | 6 comments »

My garage is my workshop. It is also my spray room. Each time I spray, I need to drape sections of the garage with some form of plastic. I had just about given up spraying due to the hassle dealing with the 9×12 plastic sheets, then I discovered 3M Advanced Masking Film. The film comes in a roll about 12.5 inches tall. You tape the film up without unfolding it. Once the 12.5 inch wide film is taped up, you pull down on the back of the film and the it unfolds to a full 99 inches. I...
