Craftsman 12'' bandsaw

Hi lumber jocks!! I got some great news!! I got a used 12’’ bandsaw!! I found it on cregslist for $85 great deal don’t you think. We brought the saw home and set it up in the garage and did some test cuts, gave the blade guards some adjustment and the saw did great in the test!! The saw has a 7’’ 1/2’’ cutting capacity. And has a powerful 1/2 hp motor. The fence is very nice, but it appears that the table is mounted backwards because the adjustment ha...

Hey Everyone - I’ve never posted here before, but I did a lot of research here before buying a replacement for my beloved cast iron Ridgid table saw. It had served me well through a major renovation, but now that the project is complete, I wanted something I could more easily tuck out of the way. I’d narrowed it down to the Ridgid 2410LS and the Bosch 4100, and was leaning toward the Bosch when I dropped in at my local Home Depot. The Ridgid rep happened to be there on a Sat...

Skil 10 in 15 amp tablesaw

Yo whats up everybody on Wednesday of this week I got my skil tablesaw and I just wanted to give a quick review of it. Now the tablesaw setup will be episodes 40,41,42. In episode 42 I give a quick review of the saw after I make my first cut. Now I have used powermatic, delta/rockwell, jet,and dewalt tablesaws before and this one stood out. For the price I recommend this saw to anyone. The only problem I saw with it was that it didnt have extension wings and I was kinda pissed that it didn...

Craftsman 10” Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 - Alignment

Previous review by Bobthebuilderinmichigan and good info from BoardRunner are here:http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/1225After a few months and a couple of projects with this saw, here are some observations ;In short, the 351-218330 seems a very good table saw for the price, with most everything I needed included. The rip fence is very good for a saw in this price class, and with a good after-market miter gauge (I caught the Incra 120 on sale) and an upgraded blade, performance is very good. ...

Byrd shelix cutterhead

Byrd shelix cutterhead

07-07-2009 11:01 PM by eastside | 19 comments »

I installed a Byrd Shelix cutter head in my new Grizzly 15 inch thickness planer with the thought that it would leave “A glassy smooth cut” and reduce tear out in highly figured wood. This head comes with 75 carbide cutters installed and looks impressive. The cutters are spiraled around the head the same as other company’s do but they go one step further and place them at an angle so that they slice at the wood. I put some nasty birch through it for a test and hade very minor tear out but...

Delta 22-580 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

Delta 22-580 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

01-28-2008 01:17 AM by GaryK | 25 comments »

I have had this planer for going on 2 years now. I have nothing but praise for it.I got it used but like new condition. It has 2 sppeds. A dimensioning speed of 60 cpi allows you to shave rough wood to its desired thicknessquickly with no snipe. Then a quicker finishing speed of 90 cpi, your wood comes out ultrasmooth and ready to go. The double-sided M2 steel knives are powered by a 15 amp, 120-volt, single-phase motor. It has a blade zero indicator (which lets you set the cutterhead t...

Dremel Multimax a low cost alternative?

Dremel Multimax a low cost alternative?

07-06-2009 09:39 PM by EricWrights | 14 comments »

A very useful customer’s review I found. Credit: Camera Shy (Baltimore, MD USA) at Amazon.com Good Tool and Recommended (with some room for improvement) I received my Dremel Multi-Max about a week ago and was anxious to try it out on a serious project. The Project: Cut out exterior window molding that had begun to rot. The tool did the job as expected; in fact I felt like a surgeon cutting out a tumor. However, after just a few minutes of use, the blade came off – not goo...

Turns All Your Nail Guns Almost Cordless

Turns All Your Nail Guns Almost Cordless

I realized that my air compressor was too big and noisy for the little amount of time I use it, so I traded it in for a new systems that works very well for the the little work shops. Lowes’ came up up with this neat CO2 regulator that powers most pneumatic nailers. This unit with the 20 oz CO2 canister can shoot 600 16 gauge brads or 1200 pins. This is the same system that paint ball guns use, so refills and extra tanks are readily available. The kit cost around $100 at Lowe’s an...

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

12-18-2011 05:47 AM by mrg | 10 comments »

I bought this saw last month after doing quite a bit of research and looking for the best bang for the buck. This saw had very good reviews on the internet and I spoke with a couple of contractors that had this saw and got good reviews from them also. If you are going to be using this saw on job sites you will need a portable stand for it, this thing is no light weight it weights in at 65 pounds. I checked the back fence, bevels and miter angles and this thing was set perfect from the f...

Close to true cyclone performance on a budget.

Close to true cyclone performance on a budget.

09-14-2009 05:18 PM by dbhost | 18 comments »

I have been getting a few questions about the Thien Cyclones I have been building, and figured I would write a quick review of them, and try to answer the questions I see about them.. For starters a Thien Cyclone Separator is NOT a true cyclone, but does operate in a psuedo cycloninc fashion. Meaning the incoming air stream spins around the outside of the vessel / dust bin and drops its load of dust, and larger particles in much the same way as nearly all the other separator lids do. The B...
