Ordered New Lathe Today

07-16-2009 02:15 AM by StanCurtis | 17 comments »

Today I ordered a new JET JWL-1442VSK wood lathe. The dealer did not have one in-stock, but it is to be delivered from the distribution center on Friday per his promise. I would like to thank ND2ELK for introducing me to LumberJocks.com. The reviews and forums were a great help to me. One of the reasons I chose this particular lathe is the accessories I have for my JET 1014 lathe are nearly all usable on the larger unit. My small lathe, which I have been using for three or four years, w...

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

02-19-2015 09:54 PM by steve421 | 5 comments »

I am writing my review in order to help people with their decision on a purchase of this unit. Before I begin I had some reservations about this and was unsure about making this investment, Even though it is an economical unit, 350 to 400 bucks is a lot to throw away on a piece of garbage that doesn;t work correctly Anyways I am more than pleased with this purchase. I never give 5 stars because when we write these posts we have no way of determining on how long something will last. I may writ...

Sunday after a long workweek was over, with a little too much overtime for my taste I was reading Rockler sales paper. I had Monday off and Blondie was working, OH no, so off to Rockler I go. I received a coupon in the mail for 50 % of a 2nd item after purchasing a regular priced item of equal or less value. So I put in the reading glass’s ( New for me never had to before, LOL ) to read their fine print of all the things that were excluded from this coupon. I was happy to read Forres...

Bessey H Style pipe clamp

Bessey H Style pipe clamp

03-09-2014 01:19 PM by HarveyM | 14 comments »

I’ve have a recent disappointing experience with Bessey pipe clamps; of the four bought one had a slipping clutch and two others had skewed threading in the head casting. Those two had jaws that wouldn’t align with the feet flat on the table. That’s aside from casting flaws & voids. They came in cardboard boxes, rather than the clear plastic packaging, but from a reputable dealer. I replaced them with Pony 50’s for slightly higher price, but Ponys are head and shoulders above ...

I’ve been meaning to write up this tool for a while. I’ve had it for a couple months and have used it maybe 7 times. It’s great. Solid hunk of real steel, drilled accurately. Has a V notch in the bottom to sit nicely on a dowel or other curved surface (or corners), and enough flat surface that it works well on flat stock. It’s really flat, sits solidly on flat stock. The center points of the holes are indicated with lines on both sides, so you can line up the hol...
