Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

01-13-2014 08:14 PM by brtech | 6 comments »

This insert is made by ColliBeck and available direct (via Ebay) or through Infinity. I purchased it from Infinity. The basic idea here is that it’s a CNC machined plate with a replaceable wooden insert. You can swap inserts in a minute or two, and either make your own, or buy them from Infinity. I have the newer version, which doesn’t use parts from the original Sawstop throat plate. The plate is a beast. Heavy, nicely machined, nicely anodized aluminum. The inserts th...

Worth the Premium Price

Worth the Premium Price

12-22-2013 07:03 PM by Mark Davisson | 13 comments »

First, I’m sorry about the photo. Sandpaper is not extremely photogenic. I’m a fan of Allan Little’s “AskWoodMan” YouTube channel. He talked me into paying the premium price for this product a little over a year ago. I ordered 6 sheets (9X11) of 5 different grits (80, 100, 120, 150, 180 and 220) at just under $1 per sheet. I created a sanding station using 1/4 sheet of each grit. My intention for this station was to sand long strips of walnut and oak pict...

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

02-09-2011 07:55 PM by steliart | 0 comments »

Jebson 1409V variable, reversible corded drill & screwdriver 3/8” (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill I was looking for a small corded quality drill that will be easy on my hands to use, controllable, robust and powerful. The shop guy recommended (introduced) this drill to me and even though its price was a bit high for the moment I hold it in my hands it felt right, so I went for it. There was nothing fancy coming with it in the box, just the drill and its chuc...

Elbo articulated hollower

Elbo articulated hollower

07-27-2011 12:46 AM by michelletwo | 3 comments »

I just set up this new tool and hollowed this piece of firewood( 8×5w ) to 6 inches. Very easy to use. (I have hollowed by hand, so I do know how) Anyone who has a modest amount of turning experience will find it relatively easy to do. I got this from Packard Woodworks and I believe it is the least expensive on the market at this time. The bad? One of the grub screws was already stripped before I even put it together. One of the long bolts that clamp the holder on the quill, was sh...

I hate writing negative reviews, but.....

01-13-2015 05:53 PM by njcraftsman | 25 comments »

Got it as a freebie so I have a hard time complaining, but mine was off by 5/16”. With all the math involved in creating an average piece of furniture….it’s a pain to have to correct for the tape as well. Otherwise decent quality (for inexpensive tapes anyway). Mines relegated to missions to my local wood monger, where precision is not needed. I have since checked multiples at the store, and have yet to find one thats dead on. Oh well it was FREE.

Easywoodtools faceplate

Easywoodtools faceplate

05-09-2011 06:05 PM by hairy | 4 comments »

This deserves more than 5 stars. High quality at a good price. Item F625 I got myself in a situation where I needed 2 faceplates at the same time. The other in the second picture is made by Don Pencil, another very good one. I looked around the web and decided on this one. Woodcraft had it at the exact same price that easywoodtools did, so I cut out the middleman. It was on my front porch almost 24 hours after I ordered it. It came from Lexington, Ky. That’s about a 2 hour driv...

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

09-07-2013 09:42 PM by 69BBNova | 4 comments »

I ordered these from The Best Things Thursday, they arrived today (Saturday) well packed, no damage… Except for my vintage Stanley No. 98 these are the only woodworking only marking tools I own that are really quality as I expected (hoped)... They have a nice heft to them which is good because I have always like knowing they are in my hand. Light tools never feel right to me… They have a nice balance to them, I don’t know any other way to describe it they just felt ...

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...
