Good Sander, but not Great

Good Sander, but not Great

06-05-2010 09:45 PM by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 9 comments »

I received this Milwaukee 1/4-sheet sander this week as a prize for completing surveys online – it was the only woodworking type tool offered. This replaces a B&D 1/4-sheet Palm Sander without oscillation. First impression is that it is packed well in a bright red plastic case with latches. Kit contains the sander, dust bag, three sheets of sandpaper (120, 180, 220), manual, and a paper punch. I had read reviews of this sander on Amazon and many users had complained that it is...

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

01-30-2011 01:53 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

I am always on the lookout for quality products at a low price. Since I started turning I have been looking for power sanding accessories that are a better value than what is available through Woodcraft. After quite a bit of searching and comparing I finally decided to give 2Sand.com a shot. After my 1st test drive of their Blue Micron Bowl Sanding Discs I am really impressed! Price When comparing price to Woodcraft there is not comparison. A 5 disc pack Hook & Loop discs from Woodc...

Got router a week ago, these are my first impressions of it.

03-26-2012 06:08 AM by SwainCustoms | 5 comments »

Received my porter cable 893 pk from amazon about a week ago, I also received a few router bits along with it. Setting up the router was a cinch, and the fine tuning and measurement adjustments are real easy to use. I don’t know If I like how the motor locks into the base, I had figured when purchasing it that the motor had attached the same way as the older porter cable model like a cork screw. I also don’t know if I like how there is now a spindle lock for tightening and loosen...

Finally, I can make dowels

Finally, I can make dowels

03-06-2015 04:04 AM by LJackson | 9 comments »

I have been trying to make my own device for making dowels, following some ideas I picked up on YouTube. These attempts have not gone over very well (read, epic fail). So, I had given up and instead purchased this fine product. To be thorough, I purchased the master set, which includes all of the inserts needed to create dowels from 1/4” to 1” in 1/16” increments. There are quite a bit of steps involved in setting it up for a particular size, and several trials are necess...

Bigger is not always better

Bigger is not always better

03-12-2012 05:01 AM by Sawdust4Blood | 10 comments »

Sadly this is my one Ridgid tool that has turned out to be a disappointment. I confess that I hate sanding and the thought that a larger, more powerful ROS might get me done sanding sooner may have seduced me into choosing this sander about 18 months ago when my faithful 20 year old Porter Cable gave up the ghost. Unfortunately, when it comes to ROSs, bigger is not always better. This sander is heavy and it’s size makes it cumbersome in many applications as well as being difficult ...

Good router, okay table

Good router, okay table

01-24-2011 06:18 PM by RandyMorter | 9 comments »

I got the Bosch 1617EVSPK 2.25 HP Router Kit with the fixed and plunge bases as an upgrade to my Ryobi router. I was looking for more power and also for a router I could mount in a table (I never could get the Ryobi in a table for some reason, and I even tried a Ryobi table).I got the router from Lowe’s on 11/15/2010 for $189.00 in Phoenix, AZ. Home Depot had the same unit for $209.Those are only the two routers I’ve ever used and I like the Bosch much better. I chose it over othe...

Yet another Powermatic review, close up.

Yet another Powermatic review, close up.

05-08-2016 01:15 PM by Tennessee | 10 comments »

As I stated in another review, I spent well over a month going back and forth between the Powermatic PWBS-14CS, with riser, and the Grizzly G0513X2. The differences are stark.The Grizz uses a 131.5” blade, the Powermatic uses a 105”. (More steel, more teeth, longer wear.)The Grizz is a 2HP, 2 speed model, the Powermatic is a one speed, 1.5HP model.The Powermatic comes in around 225 lbs. The Grizzly comes in at about 390 lbs.The Grizz table is 23 5/8 X 17 1/4”, the Powerm...

This Veritas BU LAJ plane is an upgrade from my Stanley sweetheart BU plane. After months of researching pros and cons between LN and LV BU LAJ, I finally made my decision to purchase the LV. My first impression – very well pleased, no regrets. During my research, I wanted to see actual and latest pictures of both items but google search images seem to look the same. So, now that I have the item, I took pictures in different angles to see every inch of it. See my flickr Hand Plane albu...
