What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

04-02-2012 09:05 PM by lumberjoe | 28 comments »

Some call it cheap crap, I say “challenge accepted” After many years of refinishing old tag sale furniture, I decided I’d like to do woodworking. I got some books, then got some tools. I wasn’t sold on the idea that I would be good at it or even like it, so I wanted my initial investment to be fairly small. Around Christmas time, Home Depot had this bad larry on sale for a little over 100$. I could have picked up something used and much nicer for short dough, but s...

Well worth the extra upfront cost!!

Well worth the extra upfront cost!!

04-21-2013 02:29 AM by MrFid | 22 comments »

I purchased the Veritas Mark II honing guide from my local Woodcraft store (not sure if they all do it this way, but it was kept behind a door at mine, wasn’t with the other honing guides (for good reason). I took it home, and got it out of it’s packaging, and inspected. The thing that I noticed first was the heft. It is well cast, and the brass knobs are beautifully machined. First impression: high quality tool. The instruction manual is a lengthy read, but super well writ...

"Benny" and Her JET

"Benny" and Her JET

01-05-2010 07:55 AM by mmh | 3 comments »

Well, I may need to change my name to “Benny” for this title, but this is my latest addition to the wood workshop as I dearly needed an upgrade from the Craftsman 6” x 36” belt sander which I tend to replace every 18 months (via 2 yr. service contract). The difference between the Craftsman 6” x 36” and the JET 6” x 48” models are like Night vs. Day. Same concept, but the function and quality are on opposite sides of the spectrum. For the pr...

6" and 12" Combination Squares

6" and 12" Combination Squares

10-14-2011 03:56 AM by DylanC | 4 comments »

Bought both for less than $20 at a local big-box store. Both checked out as square at full extension when I “showed the line to the square”. Also, both have cast steel heads and stainless rulers. The 12” has deep engravings and the 6” is etched. Both have scratch awls stored in the heads, also.

Way better than my Dewalt!

Way better than my Dewalt!

11-29-2016 07:03 PM by stevet47 | 18 comments »

I picked this up online re-manufactured. They were having a sale and I had a discount code, so I managed to get it for $235 shipped. I figured at that price, it was worth the risk. I sold my Dewalt 12” non-slider on craigslist for $200, so I am all-in to this saw for $35. And that is actually true, since the Dewalt was a gift! Using this thing sure is a treat. I had been using my 12” Dewalt non-slider for several years, and we have a 12” Dewalt slider at work. The Dewalts...

Laguna customer service

Laguna customer service

12-12-2016 11:55 PM by cj5 | 18 comments »

I have had the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw for just over a year and have had no issues with it. Saturday I was cutting some wet wood into turning blanks and burned up the drive belt. Monday morning I called Alex at Laguna customer service to order a new on, expecting to pay for it. Alex asked if I had registered it and the date of purchase. I had and was 4 days over the 1 year warranty. To my surprise they covered the belt and shipping. That sure did make my day !

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

01-04-2013 11:44 AM by BigDawg | 15 comments »

I owned a series of Norton waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they didn’t perform as well as I would’ve liked. Plus you have to make sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which creates a wet mess. I took Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in November. I had looked at the Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. After the class I bought a set of 1000 and...

Great blade

Great blade

05-20-2010 08:22 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 13 comments »

It came time in my shop when I realized my old porter cable blade was cutting it (literally at times!) any longer.I was going to buy a frued but I could not resist the urge to try out this CMT.The only complaint I have with this blade is the packaging. The blade is screwed into the case and even when the screw is out you still have to all about break the case to get the blade out. Its NOT easy.Upon putting in the saw I fired it up right away. Call me cliche but this blade SOUNDS great! It wh...
