Makes a great hybrid saw mobile lift, many other possibilities

Makes a great hybrid saw mobile lift, many other possibilities

1563 days ago by hypnos | 5 comments »

I recently bought a new Jet ProShop and I needed a mobile base due to my wife wanting to park in the garage. The high price and lack of really good reviews for any mobile base I could find to fit the proshop necessitated some inventiveness. This Central Hydraulics lift fit the bill, it just needed some longer lift runners. Some poplar and 1/4” machine screws brought it to the length I needed to span the base of my table saw. I will be adding bottom braces to my outfeed/assembly table th...

Work well, annoying to adjust

Work well, annoying to adjust

I used two of these for my cross cut sled I just made. At 5.99 each, they looked like a good value. I was unable to find many reviews on line, so I figured I would give them a shot. The goodThey can be clamped down pretty tight to hold the piece in placeThey are inexpensive (~6.00)Everything turns well on the bolt. No stripping The BadI don’t like the design. These have two locking mechanisms. There is a knurled knob at the bottom that locks the bolt to the track. After locked to ...

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

2342 days ago by Hawgnutz | 4 comments »

Boy, where was this years ago?!? I would give it 6 stars if I could! It is deep enough to hold my cordless drill, circular saw, pneumatic nailers, tool bags, planes, nails, screws, spare batterys and still have room for a little more. (It holds LOTS of tools!) Plus it has a wheel that allows me to move it from garage to pickup to site. Now, when I have a large project that will take a couple of days, I can store all my tools in one place until I complete that job! Woo Hoo! The top ha...

Ear protection

Ear protection

Well, after dropping and breaking my cheap Lowes earmuffs, I did a lot of online research and reading reviews and comparing specs, I ended up with these John Deere earmuffs. They are adjustable and extremely comfortable and light and at 27dB do a great job of blocking off most of the harmful loud noise in the shop ( as in my dang pancake compressor) or yard tools.

An Old Master

An Old Master

2028 days ago by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

I happened across a suggestion for this jig in a modern day Arts and Crafts furniture book. I was surprised that I found an old tool like this suggested there since usually books like that are full of merchandise someone paid to have put in there. Anyway, I found one on Ebay and paid about $32 with shipping to have it in my hands. Then, I stuck it in a drawer. And it got covered in dust. Then it was shoved to the back of the drawer to make room for some inferior Craftsman screw drivers...

Easy mobile base for contractor saws

Easy mobile base for contractor saws

I recently purchased these from my local Richmond VA Woodcraft. The owner saw my perplexion as I perused the mobile base section of the store. He asked what I was kind of equipment I was outfitting and then suggested these. I liked the idea of the equipment using its own legs as support when not in transit. I can’t imagine anything worse than a wobbley machine in use(aka my crappy jointer). I found these fairly easy to install. Two of the holes in the leg lined up although I had to enla...

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

1739 days ago by Daniel Dugan | 3 comments »

I was considering building/installing 2×4 sandwiched in 1×4 shelving for wood storage (featured in FWW #181) when I encountered this system on Lee Valley website. Time is precious to me and I would rather build furniture than wood racks, so I decided I would give this a try. I ordered the 4’ standards, fast mount brackets and the connectors as well as 10” and 14” shelf brackets. I installed three eight foot sections tonight in about an hour. The fast mount brack...

Craftsman Tool Storage (or I can do it by myself)

Craftsman Tool Storage (or I can do it by myself)

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_009H0027000B?vName=Tools&cName=Garage I have been “making do” with a Craftsman 26” x 16” rolling cabinet and 26” x 12 tool chest that was purchased in 1971 but, decided that after 38 years it was time for more tool storage. Initially looked at some of the stainless tool cabinets at both Sears and Lowe’s but finally selected the Craftsman 40” wide black steel set listed above because the 1971 Craftsman s...
