I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

02-23-2016 04:23 AM by Dark_Lightning | 26 comments »

I bought it today, after I found out that the Bosch REAXX GTS1041A isn’t going to be available for awhile yet, and I wanted to get a safer saw now, not whenever. The point of this post is to look at positive solutions you have come up with for MY alleged problems with the saw I just bought. That said- #1. The miter gauge is loose in the slots. (.010” “slop”). Yes, I know it is a contractor’s saw (edit to add- yes that is a Job Site Saw). I had expected better,...

Much better than a utility knife.

Much better than a utility knife.

I’ve had this for a while, but it hasn’t really gotten a workout until the past few days.I’m redoing my router table top and since my table saw is a bosch 4100 now, safely cutting a 4’x8’ sheet of laminate into manageable pieces isn’t feasible. Cutting the laminate with this tool is easy; I just made the necessary tick marks on the laminate sheet, laid a 4’ scrap of apple ply and ran the scoring tool along the apply ply with firm pressure several t...

We have tested many tools so far and recently decided to start recording our data.. This is the first “documentary” video of us giving this router a Hardwood Pounding! Take the time to at least watch the funeral. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NWm63oOvAQ

Why did I wait so long??

Why did I wait so long??

12-06-2011 05:24 AM by Tedstor | 11 comments »

Easily accessible power is priceless in the shop. While installing new outlets would have been the preferable remedy, it wasn’t particularly practical in my case. This cord reel has solved a lot of problems for me. At 30 ft, its long enough to reach any point in my workshop/garage, and can even reach onto my driveway if necessary. And being mounted on the ceiling makes it easy to manage the cord, keeping it off the floor and away from my feet. The reel includes all the needed hardware t...

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

12-15-2012 06:14 PM by mbs | 8 comments »

I purchased this adjuster to make very fine adjustments on my sawstop table saw. The base is magnetic and the magnets are pretty strong. I’ve modified my review since I took another look at the device. This unit doesn’t work properly on my Sawstop because it needs to sit directly where the scale indicator sits. I looked at Rockler’s website and some people have made extensions to compensate for the interference. I’m not sure if I want to mess with it or not. ...

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

01-17-2014 02:09 AM by poopiekat | 20 comments »

After seeing some plane restorations by LJ ‘ToddJB’ back in December, I was glad to see someone asked him how he got such a terrific surface on the sides of his planes. His ‘workhorse’ as he referred to it, was a simple burnishing wheel! He claimed it would take a plane from rusty to shiny in one step! I had to have one of these, a hundred of my planes are in queue for restoration, and it’s taking me forever! So, I purchased a 3M burnishing wheel, the exact...

Wow, I am stunned and ticked off all at the same time. I have owned a Ridgid band saw and drill press for almost 10 yrs. The DP has been stellar without a single issue. I actually have the much maligned Ridgid orange BS and I have it tuned up wonderfully and also love it. Due to these two tools I have added to my Ridgid collection. I have their combo shop vac/blower and also love it. Also, orange is my favorite color. :-) Now the sadness… I had a 4330 planer that I bought fr...

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

05-08-2014 06:15 PM by paxorion | 3 comments »

That’s probably all the saw you’d need – My wife Famous last words for a saw that I quickly became annoyed with. I purchased the saw about 3 years ago during a Lowes fathers day sale. For the price, was quite the bargain. I’ve used the saw for for a much of home repair/renovation jobs, as well as many woodworking projects to break down sheet goods and solid lumber. At 13amps, it’s rated to have less power than many 15amp saws, but I doubt many would experi...

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

02-21-2015 01:30 PM by MC | 2 comments »

I am working on a project which I have incorporated a piece of figured oak. Even with a blade with a fresh and carefully honed edge in my smoothing plane I could not prevent tear out on the board. I ordered the scraping plane specifically for the purpose of preparing the surface of this figured wood. The #112 finish is perfect and the blade thickness is substantial. While waiting for the delivery of the #112 I watched the LN video on setting up this plane. The video is essential as the dir...

The circular saw is a disappointment. It has cutting power but the shoe is wiggly. If you need a precise circular saw, choose a different format. Otherwise the P-C tools I tested are good quality withpowerful, high-torque motors and relatively basic features.
