This saw is discontinued now, replaced by a new model but some stores around me still have a few left on their shelves. I picked mine up for about $360.00, that price for a Bosch slider is pretty good in my books. As with any other miter saw out there dust collection sucks but that is to be expected I guess. It came with a 60 tooth blade that worked great but after its life was up I replaced it with a Freud. The only real problem that this one has is that it is very hard to pull down when you...

It Works!! OK, there is more than one line.. It’s a short novel. lol Thanks to this gent on youtube, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amzUACmIKDs), and this good deal on Amazon, (http://www.amazon.com/PSI-Woodworking-LR110-3-110-Volt-Collector/dp/B00004S9AI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422052792&sr=8-1&keywords=long+ranger+III), I finally got it, and I’m happy as a tick on a hound. While at the lathe spinning the ga-zillion pens and such, I used to have to walk over and...

I was so excited to try making a picture frame for an old mirror I etched a long time ago… until I got this disaster of a clamp. Pros: Nylon band is an easy to see day-glow orange. Solid easy to grip handle Quick release tabs on either side makes it easy to size the band accordingly Really long band – like 15’ long. A bit large for a 12×12 picture frame, but I’m sure for an odd shaped item it would come in handy. Cons: Has a little notch (for la...

Highboy DVD by Glen Huey

Highboy DVD by Glen Huey

I bought this DVD about a year ago and have found it to be one of the best DVD I have viewed.This was made before Glen went full time with Popular Woodworking.It has over 3 1/2 hours of instruction plus many extras including step by step photos and complete plans.One of my favorite thing about Glen’s DVDs is he shows many ways to do the same procedure.He hand cuts dovetails,cuts them on the bandsaw,and with a jigsaw.Also some very nice finishing information.I used this DVD as the basis ...

Grizzly 4 1/2" Mallet

Grizzly 4 1/2" Mallet

06-16-2012 10:45 PM by Stephenw | 2 comments »

I considered building a mallet, but with so many other projects in the queue, I decided to buy the 4 1/2” mallet from grizzly.com. The handle finish is a little rough. There is also dirt and a brown substance all over the mallet. The pictures are of the new, unused mallet. Many mallet heads are made from several parts laminated together. This mallet head is a solid piece with a tapered hole bored through for the handle. The result is a somewhat sloppy fit. At $12.95, it wasn’...

I wanted handsaw sharpening experience, and I got more (sharpening experience) than I expected

I wanted handsaw sharpening experience, and I got more (sharpening experience) than I expected

02-25-2014 08:40 PM by paxorion | 2 comments »

This past summer, I had to repair some molding along the exterior of a bay window. Given that it was a very small number of molding cuts to repair, I opted to get a plastic miter box and backsaw to do the work rather than pull out a power miter saw. I saw it not so much as an additional expense, but rather a chance to get some handsaw sharpening experience. My criteria was to find a cheap handsaw that I wouldn’t feel bad ruining by experimenting with sharpening. After playing with a few...

I was in need to make 6” and 6 1/4” circles for my dust collection HVAC blast gates and support holders. My Microfence circular router jig CAN go as low as 6”, but I had to install a Bosch router adapter which changes the minimum diameter to 7”. I’ve reviewed other circle cutters and decided on the Grizzly because it looks more “stout” and there are zero reviews I could find so … a crap shoot :) I could of went with a hole saw but that is a f...

Forrest Blade

Forrest Blade

06-08-2008 06:00 PM by BillyUP | 5 comments »

My son bought this blade 13 years ago, and in addition to all the furniture projects in the home shop he is a contractor for helping build homes. This blade is his only blade, and was used on site to cut everything for four houses. After cutting some very dense 31/2” Oak, he says it must be time for it’s FIRST sharpen, and intends for no one but Forrest to do it. It still cuts softer wood like butter.Billyup
