CV 1800 Bundle Review

CV 1800 Bundle Review

01-05-2016 05:24 AM by JBrow | 15 comments »

My Requirements and Purchase Decision. I used a ½ hp dust collector with an awful filter bag for about 10 years before I outfitted it with a shop made cyclone from the “ShopNotes” design in 1998. I used that machine up until August 2015, when I purchased the Clearvue CV 1800 cyclone bundle. It was a shop upgrade long overdue, but probably like many woodworkers, I would rather spend money on wood cutting tools than on a vacuum cleaner. My decision to upgrade dust collection occurred earl...

good saw guide with small problems

good saw guide with small problems

09-10-2012 10:44 AM by americancanuck | 5 comments »

I found this to work very well with one problem. The little red pointer that is used to line up the saw blade with the scale on the beam covers up the numbers making it impossible to see. a good solution would be to make this peice out of clear plastic. Other than that I found this to be acurate and easy to use. It’s a godsend when ripping down full sheets of plywood. Storage with the saw connected is a problem so I have been removing the saw after each use. The problem with this is th...

Solid router but obsolete design

Solid router but obsolete design

12-13-2010 03:50 AM by Chelios | 16 comments »

I got this router, guide and dovetail jig because I wanted to make a small chest of drawers and thought this would be the way to go. I have used the router several times after that but I wasn’t really liking the clean up after the job was done. Dust collection is not part of the design. PC relies on an obsolete design and this is the main reason for giving it 2 stars. The positive- The tool looks like it is never going to brake and it certainly runs that way, the base has a nice...

Clean flat bottom cuts

Clean flat bottom cuts

07-27-2013 11:13 PM by twc | 8 comments »

I am always looking for new more efficient ways to complete my projects. Lately I have been doing a lot of shaker style doors with stub-tenon and groove joinery. That’s where this blade comes in. It makes super clean cuts with perfectly flat bottoms. On their website it is shown cutting tenon shoulders in a single pass. I have not done anything bigger then a stub tenon but I think it would excel at larger tenons as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to c...

"JUST ABOUT" isn't close enough any more.

"JUST ABOUT" isn't close enough any more.

I just bought this caliper. I had an old one that was not digital, it just had stamped lines and measurements. I’ve used it for years, and considered it priceless. But, here lately, I’ve been wanting to get a little more accurate. So, I bought this Wixey brand 6” Digital readout caliper with fractions. WOW! I was really surprised at the difference. What I thought was good in the past is now not acceptable. This caliper has helped me be a better woodworker in so many ...

It's made of plastic !

It's made of plastic !

06-03-2011 03:49 PM by richgreer | 18 comments »

I use my digital calipers a lot and I tend to be hard on them. I’ve dropped them and poured stuff on them and it seems like I am buying new ones often. I saw this particular caliper on sale for half price – only $14.99. I didn’t need one at the time, but I know that I will eventually need another one so “why not?”. I never imagined that it would be made of plastic. It has a very cheap, flimsy feel to it and it does not have the normal little turn whe...

Stanley still has problems milling the bed correctly

Stanley still has problems milling the bed correctly

02-04-2015 11:36 PM by jakep_82 | 16 comments »

I should have listened to the people on Amazon complaining about machining problems. I posted largely the same review on Amazon. The sole on mine was cupped slightly front to back and side to side. The lowest point is right at the mouth. The adjustable toe is also machined so that it’s about .002” below the rest of the sole. They also left several burrs on the bed that prevented the blade from sitting perfectly flat. And on the topic of the bed, I found the same problem as man...

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

05-16-2013 01:05 AM by Mainiac Matt | 10 comments »

Just completing the refurbishment of an older 3 HP Jet cabinet saw, I decided to indulge in the first “premium” blade I’ve ever owned. I read several threads discussing blades and was intrigued to find out what the Hi-ATB with the double sided grind was all about. Now that I have the power, I also wanted to get a non-thin kerf blade. This blade is “wicked sharp”... There are a lot of technical discussions already out there, so for my review, I decided to...

K-body clamp extenders

K-body clamp extenders

11-03-2008 07:09 PM by dsb1829 | 7 comments »

I picked up a set of the K-body clamp extenders a couple months back from Woodcraft. I had a table project coming up and knew that clamping the long aprons would require clamps in excess of the 50 inchers that I had. I was initially impressed by the solid construction of these. Honestly I think you would get back near half of the price in scrap value on the billet. The bolts are massive. The extrusion is formed to match the contours of the steel rails of the K-body clamps. Well last n...
