height adjustment

height adjustment

10-27-2014 03:08 PM by Scrollers | 1 comment »

I have owned this saw for almost two years. I am going to retire in a little over a year and I have been setting up my workshop with tools that I feel I will need at that time. I haven’t been able to work down there very much but have done some work there. My question is the height adjustment. It won’t go down. It is in the up position now but won’t move. It has been this way ever since I have had it but didn’t do any thing with because I didn’t have the time. No...

Worth Every Penny

Worth Every Penny

12-31-2008 01:27 AM by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

I gotta have my music. In fact, for some reason I concentrate better when I have music going than when I don’t. However, with the scream of power tools, it can get lost. Not only that, but something has to help pass the time when sanding! Well, the Work Tune does the job just fine. I picked this one up for $50 from Lowe’s with some Christmas money, and I’m thrilled with it. First the hearing protection: It works great. I can hear the scream of the machines, but n...

Crap Powered Crap Saw

Crap Powered Crap Saw

I got this for $15, and i over paid. It doesn’t hold onto the blades because they keep falling out no matter how much I tighten the set screws. It doesn’t cut straight. Now, it doesn’t even work. I think I didn’t have it for 6 months when it stopped working. Well, sometimes it works when I slam it against a concrete surface, hard. So if you have one project you need a jigsaw for, but you don’t need super accurate cuts, this would be fine. It’s $20 ...

I had to spray some General Finshes Enduro-Var water base poly. Not really poly as it is water based. After thining with about 15 percent water and a couple healthy squirts of General Finishes dry time extender I got the results I needed. A smooth flat top coat. After drying I used Micro-mesh sanding pads. 1500 to 12000 grit.I still need to get some 1 micron polish from Micro-mesh to get that extra eye popping mirror like finish.29 gal Harbor Freight commpressor 7.3 cfm at 40 psi and 5.9 at 9...

An Essential Read

An Essential Read

**This review was pulled from a previous blog post on The Wood Whisperer Many of you may already know Chris Schwarz. He is an editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine and a self-confessed hand-tool and workbench enthusiast. His most recent work is a book called Workbenches, truly a modest title for what is contained within those 144 pages. Perhaps it was just great timing, since I am currently focusing on my hand tool skills, but this book really struck a chord with me. In fact, since my tw...

CONS:Needs really aggressive dust collection or the interior gets messyLittle plastic on switch is too easy to lose.My 1.75 hp is a bit underpowered for me.Won’t allow you to use a molding head but I never do anyway.The support legs for the table extension need more lateral sup...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

*Lots* of practical advice on --- wait for it --- building furniture with hand planes.

Like everything else I’ve ever read or seen from Chris Schwarz, this is chock full of practical advice and tricks, combined with a good bit of useful history. This video reviews some of the techniques used in ‘Course Medium and Fine’, but often takes the details a step or 2 deeper. Also, they differ in that this video generally assumes you begin with a board that’s been machine planed, and needs finishing. This video also covers the block plane extensively. Sharp...

So I was tired of my crappy U-frame saw, made of steel tubing, having hacked it as much as I could to improve – that’s a lesser word – the blade locking mechanism. It kept twisting blades on me and they snapped too easily. So I litterally tossed it out and settled to raid eBay, in search for a better saw frame. I had already purchased several times from the Proops Bros, and had noticed they carried a wide array of hardware, all made by themselves in the UK. And so I shell...

Be Square and Use This!

Hello all! As a new woodworker, I’m currently tooling up my shop with the happy anticipation of making “great things”. My mantra when shopping has always been to look for the best “bang for my buck”, and I’m pretty satisfied with the results so far. My latest find: the Empire Level e2992 True Blue 7” Rafter Square, a.k.a. a “Speed Square”. Made in the USA from aircraft-grade aluminum, this rafter square has stamped gradation marks, ...
