Impressed, good value so far

I had for years been using an old Delta 12 inch saw that I got on Craigslist. It was wearing out in multiple ways all at once and all the problems were hard to fix since it’s long discontinued, plus it only has a 6 inch resaw capacity and for most of what i do eight would be about right. I did a lot of research, including reviews here, and settled on the Craftsman BAS 350 which is the same as the Rikon 10-321, only @200 bucks cheaper. I was thinking about the Rikon 10-325, but itR...

Woodwork joints

Woodwork joints

11-11-2012 10:48 AM by Mikesawdust | 7 comments »

An excellent source and reference for hand joinery and it’s original uses. The book is public domain, so it’s free and although it is written in older style English and the descriptions and instructions are very brief, if you are into hand joinery or just looking for a joint that really stands out as unique, this is a really good book to use.

Good metal detector -- well worth the initial cost!

Good metal detector -- well worth the initial cost!

02-29-2008 07:59 PM by Hawgnutz | 0 comments »

If you are in the market for a metal detector for wood, this is a good one. While the calibration is kinda tricky, once you get it set, it detects metal pretty good. One nice feature is that this offers three cues when finding metal: Sight, Sound and Vibration! When metal is detected, the light changes from green to red, a beep sounds, and you can even choose for the handle to vibrate. Unlike the Little Wizaed, the Lumber Wizard works! I feel safe to trust my planer, jointer or bandsaw...

I guess that if you hear enough people saying the same thing, there might be some truth to it. This was the case with my recent Unisaw purchase. I went to pick the saw up at Lowes and when they brought it out it was packed in a fashion that was screaming damage me. It came in four separate boxes, the table saw body, the saw side table, the fence, and the bar that the fence sits on. As many other people have noted, the fence box and the side table box where destroyed. Laguna does a better job ...

Great Bandsaw Blade

Great Bandsaw Blade

01-05-2013 05:05 AM by NormG | 8 comments »

After Reading MBS’ review I ordered the same blade. It arrived today while I was at work. Very well packaged and in good shape. After dinner, I went out to the shop and installed on my newer Craftsman 12” 89 1/2” blade (Similar to the Rikon). It is a great saw. After about 15 minutes of setup it was ready to go. Blade is noticeably quieter than the Timber Wolf blades I have been using. I followed the instructions and used a slower rate to break the blade in. The I ...

My Review of the Grizzly G0532 Dry Spray Booth

My Review of the Grizzly G0532 Dry Spray Booth

07-03-2016 10:24 PM by kennymac | 4 comments »

Note, I have edited this review to add more information. Hi Everyone, Here’s another stab at a tool review, I seem to remember doing one once before. Still fairly new to woodworking, I’ve been at it for about a year and a half now. I’m amassing some nice tools along the way, and lately I’ve started to delve into spray finishes. I recently bought an Earlex 5500 HVLP spray system and I knew I was going to need a spray booth for the fumes. I got incredibly lucky b...

Long story short. This is my second iGaging angle block. The first had a defective LCD on top of displaying constant error even with a fresh battery.This one the LCD is ok but even at a sale price of 20 it’s waste of money since you may have to spend at least half of that in gas returning and exchanging.Measured against all my engineering squares and then some and two other Wixey’s this thing is so off that’s not even funny. The problem is also inconsistency. It’s not always off by sam...

I had contacted rhett after seeing a post about evaluating hand planes. Rhett sent me a care package to share with my students. I run a woodworking club for my 7th and 8th grade students. I recieved a completed plane with test shavings, a plane glued up, a kit ready to be glued and some blades and plane body blanks. I want to publically thank Rhett for his generosity and support of my students wodworking journey. The assembled plane worked perfectly after i adjusted the plane after is journey...
