I bought this ROS mainly on the strengths of its dust collection. A number of reviews that I’ve read consistently rated its dust capture better than other ROS (except of course the mighty Festool). After a couple of hours of use, I’m pretty happy with it so far…Pros:great dust captureminimal vibrationcomfortable to useCons:slow material removal1” DC port (would it have killed them to make the port 1 1/4” so as to fit a standard shop vac attachment???)

Custom Support is second to none

Custom Support is second to none

I am currently helping a master humidor builder in creating a new finishing schedule for his cherry humidors (http://www.michaeldixonhumidors.com ). He is letting me share the heat in his shop this winter. They have been using Minwax blotch control with hit or miss results. I suggested we try Charles Neil’s Blotch control, so we ordered a quart. We received better results but not quite where we wanted them. Sent Charles an email with a picture of our results and he suggests we tal...

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...

Not so impressive.

Not so impressive.

I was warned. I was warned every time I went into Woodcraft. Don’t buy Groz! I’ve seen it everywhere online. I’m here to tell you, they are on to something when they say don’t buy Groz. The Groz isn’t a terrible plane, but it isn’t a very good one either. This is actually the only plane I ever received brand new. Every other plane I have is an old Millers Falls or an old Stanley. Out of the box it does not impress. The metalwork is haphazard and I would not...

RTJ-400 Dovetail Jig review

RTJ-400 Dovetail Jig review

03-05-2016 02:26 PM by Jarrhead | 9 comments »

Working on a dresser for my daughter. I decided to do the drawers with dovetail joints. Let me preface with what I am about to say with the facts that I never owned a dovetail jig, and I have never cut dovetails by hand. I have a very close friend who has a Rockler dovetail jig, and he graciously offered to let me use it. Meanwhile, I kinda had my eye on purchasing the Leigh RTJ400 jig. Well the dresser project got around to the point where I had to get to work on the drawers, but I hadn...

Pretty good for the price!

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...

I wanted to add a foot switch to a scroll saw I just bought. The pedal types seemed better suited to a sitting position (I was thinking sewing machine). I will be standing so I looked for a low profile that had the pivot at the top. I ordered this one ($16.84) and received it yesterday. It’s available in three configurations: switch w/6ft pigtail; switch w/6ft cord and piggyback 15amp/120v plug; switch alone. I ordered the last option because I wanted a little bit longer cord and ...

Woodworker's Edge "Techniques" DVD's Cabriole Leg

Last fall I went to visit Chuck Bender's shop and to meet Glen Huey Glen is the Senior Editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine. Glen was teaching a class on a Tea Table that belinged to his mother and had been in his home for as long as he could remember. The plans have been published in Popular Woodworking Magazine. This review has nothing to do with the table. It’s just a lead in to me meeting Glen. A great guy and of course Chuck is also. While I was there chatting with Glen...
