This sander was purchased because I needed one for the workshop but I also needed something to sand the floors we are refinishing in our 76 year old home. This guy proved to be a champ. The floor I started on is about 400 sq.ft. This is pretty much how the entire floor was when we ripped up the carpet; These are the results; This sander, $130.00 plus tax, paired with my Fein Turbo III vacuum busted through carpet adhesive, gouges and scratches in the old yellow pine f...

Inexpensive way to save a lot of time.

Inexpensive way to save a lot of time.

I have to share my shop space with two cars in the winter. All that humidity from melting snow wreaks havoc on the cast iron table saw top and drill press table and post. I set out to find a good way to seal/protect the exposed steel so that come spring, I did not have to spend a day preparing surfaces for woodworking. I came across SLIPIT and after reading some reviews, decided to give it shot. One of the great things about this product is that it not only seals the surface, but makes th...

Great for uneven floors

Great for uneven floors

10-14-2009 06:39 AM by DannyBoy | 8 comments »

From the start, I needed to make sure that my saw would be movable. With a small shop, floor space is at a premium and it only makes things difficult to admit that my floor is not at all level and even. This system took care of both of those needs. The casters are well built and work well on the uneven floor. Plus, once you are done moving the unit, you flip it down onto it’s own feet right into your floors sweet-spot. Two bits of advice: First, you probably won’t matc...

Not Bad Afterall

Not Bad Afterall

10-19-2011 09:55 PM by pintodeluxe | 27 comments »

Had blade marks after ripping 1.5” white oak. Even after taking a skim cut with featherboard and zero clearance insert with thin kerf splitter I still had blade marks. Not burning, just the sort of cut that reveals its imperfections when you hold it up to the light. My industrial full kerf combination blade sure makes glassy smooth cuts compared to this one. In fact I had to switch back to the Freud combination blade to make skim cuts on all boards. Too much work. This one is goi...

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 1

03-18-2017 06:59 PM by EEngineer | 12 comments »

I have wanted a spindle sander in my shop for some time now. For the last year or two, I had my eye on the Ridgid EB4424 belt/spindle sander but reviews just haven’t been kind to this product. Yes, there are many magazine reviews praising this product and positive reviews by satisfied users but there are also lots and lots of sad tales (including right here on LJ here and here ) that seemed to point to severe quality control issues. In addition, like many other companies, it seems that Ri...

I posted this in the Blog section and don’t know if it is appropriate to post here but if not please delete it. Anyway, I hate sweeping up after doing a lot of turning. So I took a Floor sweep, you know one of those awkward black plastic things you hook to the bottom of you dust collector hose and push it around the floor? Anyway, I put a couple off screws in it and attached it under the lip of my bench at my bench top lathe. Hooked it up to the end of that dust collector hose and man ...
