[sorry for the lousy stock photo. Click on it to see the entire image] I bought this product about 8 months ago. At the time, they were on sale for $14.99. Thats about half what other roller stands of this quality cost and one-fifth of some of the pricier makes/models. When I got it home and took it out of the box, I inspected it for any obvious defects (bad welds, stripped hardware, etc). None were found. I then put it together with no issues. After assembly, I adjusted the stand to vario...

Momentary Power Foot Switch

Momentary Power Foot Switch

01-09-2013 11:01 PM by b2rtch | 14 comments »

How many time when starting your router or your drill press or other power tool did you wish you had one more hand to grab firmly on the piece you were ready to machine? Often we present a piece of wood on the router just at right place to route it and then we need to let go of it to start the router and then the piece move. Or we hardly can hold one large piece , we do not feel very safe and then we need to let go of one hand to start the router or the drill press. After I refurbished...

More Than A "Whittle" Fun

More Than A "Whittle" Fun

03-20-2012 09:36 AM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) The Big Book of Whittle Fun by Chris Lubkemann is a little “big book” filled with a “wot of whittlin’ fun”. Small in stature (a great size for taking with you when planning on doing a little whittling) but big in content! This book has over thirty projects and is an inspiration for many more. Games – che...

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

09-29-2013 06:35 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way first: Yes, I start sanding with 40 grit. Yes, this is insane. I find myself often having to sand out screwups on my projects and the rougher the sanding grit the faster I can sand it out. I got these discs at Lowe’s. I normally got the Shop Smith 40 grit discs but they were out of them this time. So I bought a 50 pack. So far I’ve gone at least dozen of them over a period of several months, on different woods. Ther...

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

From reviews on this site of the Haltbar Sagen blades, I thought I might try out some for my Grizzly G0513.I ordered two 1/2” 101 Flexback series, 131.5” long, 4 TPI, and I also ordered two of their 201 Hardback series, a 1/2” 4TPI and a 3/8” 6TPI. I completed the order online, and in three days, two boxes appeared on my front porch, each containing one 201 series Haltbar, with the proper label on the side of the box describing the model, length, width, and TPI. In...

The Little Vac That Could

The Little Vac That Could

03-24-2014 12:39 PM by pashley | 2 comments »

Ok, never thought I’d be writing a review about a shop vac, but… I ordered this by mail order from Home Depot, wanting to replace my burned out 16 gallon shop vac, which was used to collect sawdust from my big tools. This was a wrong choice, because the hose diameter was only 1 1/4”, and not the 2 1/2” I really needed – my mistake. Nevertheless, the assembly was easy, and I appreciated it used vac bags, which is much easier to change, versus tipping ove...

Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander

Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander

05-03-2014 06:39 PM by b2rtch | 4 comments »

I got this sander just two days ago but I already put quite few hours on it.Like every one else I have multiple sanders. I am doing project for the church and no sander that I already have could have been used to do what I need to do except a 1/4 sheet orbital sander that I rarely use because it does not do a very good job.A 1/2 sheet sander is too big, too heavy and too cumbersome. This sander is 1/3 sheet.For what I have to do it is the perfect size. It perform very well yet it is light a...

New Fence

New Fence

01-24-2013 03:54 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...

Grizzly Wet Grinder

Grizzly Wet Grinder

Wanted to do a quick review of the grizzly 10 inch wet grinder. I got the anniversary edition about a month ago, and have been very pleased with the results. Pros:Grinds, hones, and polishes wellVery happy with the polishing leather wheelVery good and repeatable results Cons:Jig is hard to square up, but is still useable Cannot flatten or polish blade backs unlike the tormek.Angle jig can be confusing at firstCould be better at catching water off wheel sides Overall, I would recommen...
