I have been using the Jessem Clear Cut TS Stock Guides for about two months now on my table saw and I felt it was time for a review. These are similar in concept to their Clear Cut Stock Guides for the router table but they have some unique differences that make them significantly better. First, let’s start with unboxing and installation. The guides are beautifully packaged and come with the guides themselves fully assembled. I have a SawStop PCS with the T-Glide fence onto which you...

Looks good so far

Looks good so far

I’m giving this five stars for now with the disclaimer that I’ve only used it for a short while on one day so far. I will update this if any problems arise. I see some of the issues with the older models, but the Airshield Pro seems to have corrected some of those. For example it is very light. I saw some complaints on the older one being heavy. They also say the current battery will run all day but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know. Here’s why I b...

Good Featherboards, not so good runner hardware.

Good Featherboards, not so good runner hardware.

02-09-2011 06:25 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

I recieved one of these featherboard sets for Christmas last year, and had noticed the other review on them, so I wanted to chime in on my own experience. My router table / extension wing uses Rockler 3/4” x 3/8” aluminum miter track, which works flawlessly with all my other miter bars. However with the Milescraft, the miter bars were extremely cheaply made with lots of casting excess, which means the miter bar wouldn’t even think of fitting the slot until I sanded the ex...

No More Sucking Through a Straw

No More Sucking Through a Straw

08-27-2013 10:08 PM by HillbillyShooter | 16 comments »

This is a product I’ve been meaning to share for some time. I discovered it back in 2011 after I quit smoking and promptly developed some breathing problems. I tried various paper masks but always felt like I was trying to “suck air through a straw.” I looked at other, bulky masks but passed as being overly restrictive. Finally, I found the “Dust Bee Gone” mask and ordered one. My experience has been great with the breath ability through the material of the mask and the filtering quality...

A good buy.

I bought this today, after I knew I was going to do a lot of sanding. I’ve been using the paper masks for a while and I hate them. I hate how the paper ones make you breath hot air and are really stuffy. I also hate how they never fit right. Opening 3m Respirator was easy and it was easy to assemble. All you have to do is attach the filters. There is two head straps on the respirator. The top one starts off as one strap but splits into two and cradles your head comfortably. The bott...

Once You Try Them - You Can't Live Without Them

i just got my new worktunes headphones and i have got to say that i love them. they are wonderful to use. the ones that i got have just an am/fm radio but you can also get ones to hook up to your ipod. the radio ones cost 50 and i think the ipod ones are around 80 or 90. they are very heavy duty and seem like they will last a lot longer than the other pairs that i have got before. they are nice to have when using the table saw and the miter saw but where they really shines is while ripping a ...

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

03-10-2014 11:37 PM by CharlesA | 8 comments »

Becoming more safety conscious in the workshop is something I’ve had to learn—it doesn’t come naturally to me. So even after I started wearing safety glasses regularly, using safety guards on tools, and consciously following safe tool use, I didn’t wear hearing protection. Why not? Because the loud noises didn’t really bother me, and I didn’t like any of the hearing protection I tried: some cheap earmuff style from the local hardware store, and the head...

Nitrile With the Stretch of Latex

Nitrile With the Stretch of Latex

10-25-2014 01:21 AM by JAAune | 11 comments »

At the shop we’ve been using nitrile gloves for many years in finishing or epoxy operations. For some time they were purchased from Lowes but they were flimsy and sold in $9 bags of 15 (for one-armed woodworkers?). Later we discovered Gemplers and their 8 and 4 mil gloves and were satisfied with those. They held up well and could often be used a couple times before tossing. We tried discounted gloves from Woodcraft but those were easy to tear and weren’t that much cheaper. ...

Bose Hearing protection

Bose Hearing protection

I work in IT as a primary source of income and can spend a lot of time in the data center. I have a very nice set of Peltor Optime 105 ear muffs and it was I that brought them into the work place originally because I use them at home when running the power equipment – I rate these at 5 stars as well. A few months ago, I have noticed a change to my hearing, never a good thing because slow degradation does not trigger a change in the brain. I got tested and found that I have lost a ...

Works well and Comfortable

Works well and Comfortable

10-18-2011 03:27 AM by PurpLev | 15 comments »

I got this for my daughter from highlandwoodworking.com as she likes to help in the shop and will cover her ears with her hands everytime a power tool is turned on (very good). I want her to be able to help with jigsaw cuts and sanding and having the shopvac on while working with both so this is a must to have her focused on the work and not on the noise. The ear protection can be lengthened or shortened and the range can accommodate a 3-4 y/o on the short end and a small-medium adult on t...
