Could be Better

I really like the Grizzly G0771 table saw, and have used it for several years now. I was pleased to discover that Grizzly came out with an insert for the G0771, however, this rating lost two stars for the following: 1) The insert sits 0.020” higher than the original insert which means the leveling screws have to be readjusted when swapping the inserts. The ZC Inserts I make have oversized holes that fit over the screw heads. This allows a thicker edge on the insert, and the leveling...

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

10-17-2018 03:15 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Here you will see a 32 degree angled mobile stand to help with cross cutting large panels.Just kidding :) Just me wiggling it into place.For longest time, I used a mini pallet jack and DIY stands for my Powermatic 66 and Unisaw. With the PM66 off to a better home, only the Unisaw remains with me. I never liked the saw being raised 4-5” higher due to the DIY stand but put up with it, til now. With upcoming outfeed assembly table, I wanted the saw as low as possible. Way too many ric...

Contractor Saw PALS-  Should Have Done This Sooner

Contractor Saw PALS- Should Have Done This Sooner

09-25-2018 06:08 PM by fivecodys | 8 comments »

After reading several reviews and watching every video I could find, I decided to try the Contractor-saw PALS alignment system.Previously I was using a bar clamp to pull the rear trunnion into alignment as I tightened the bolts.It was a hit and miss process and I really didn’t have a good way to measure my results. I coupled the PALS with this jig I found posted here on Lumberjocks: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96896 The PALS do exactly what they claim to do. The instructions ...

If you want a great miter gauge

If you want a great miter gauge

07-20-2018 07:25 PM by Jacksdad | 7 comments »

I got the Kreg Miter gauge for my birthday, it’s great. I taught a segmented turning class at Woodcraft and I was going to show how to fix if your segments are not perfect, 1 cut 16 pieces and put them together and no gap, so much for that idea. It comes perfect from the factory, if you aren’t getting perfect angles your saw needs adjusting. It cuts accurately to a tenth of a degree, I highly recommend it.

Taking my table saw to the next level: Correct segments straight off the saw!

Taking my table saw to the next level: Correct segments straight off the saw!

02-09-2018 11:19 PM by Tennessee | 15 comments »

OK, I got into segmented bowls, vessels, and vases this year as a new product for my galleries. I did the wooden sled thing, and it worked, sort of, with four different angles developed for the sled. But after about 100 cuts, I started to notice that things were working their way out of true, and decided that the wooden sled route was just not going to cut it for me.After much debate in my mind, and my wife asking when am I going to pull the trigger, I finally settled on the Incra 1000HD Mi...

Best Option I've Found

Best Option I've Found

01-07-2018 01:41 PM by EarlS | 18 comments »

I read an article written by a hand surgeon for Popular Woodworking. “In the hundreds of table saw injuries I’ve seen, I’ve yet to see an amputation from a table saw with an appropriate blade guard and splitter. There have never been many good reasons to remove the guard; now with better-designed saws, guards and riving knives, there are even fewer. I’ve seen woodworkers injured on the “backstroke” as they bring a hand back over an unprotected blade after a cut, those who didn’t see ...

Jess Em Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides Do What They're supposed to

Jess Em Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides Do What They're supposed to

12-08-2017 02:33 AM by NeophyteGrant | 20 comments »

As a relatively new woodworker who has spent some time investing in new equipment the past couple months, I have a bit of a backlog of items I’d like to share impressions of. There are a couple of Jess ‘Em products at the top, particularly these TS rip guides, which were my first Jess ‘Em purchase. Fit and Finish: the finish of the aluminum pieces is outstanding. I’ve had them up in action on my SuperCoolTools Fence (these were a custom fit model with according t...

Ridge Carbide Tool TS2000 24T 10" Rip "Super Blade" Full Kerf

Ridge Carbide Tool TS2000 24T 10" Rip "Super Blade" Full Kerf

11-17-2017 12:48 AM by crb | 5 comments »

Purchased this blade from Holbren a few weeks ago to use during workbench top construction, but found few reviews that didn’t sound like shills so I thought I’d post this. This works like I would expect a $90 rip blade to work. I ripped a a few hundred feet of SYP 2×4 with this blade, jointing 2 sides, squaring up the third with this blade down to 3” width, and then doing a 3” tall rip down the lumber. I did this so I could get the same thickness out of all t...

Comparing the older US-made Biesemeyer with the newer model

Comparing the older US-made Biesemeyer with the newer model

10-20-2017 12:14 PM by David Smith | 5 comments »

My most regrettable mistake in 40+ years of woodworking was selling an older US-made Biesemeyer fence (the white one with the flag and eagle on it). I was selling an old Craftsman bench saw and decided to let the fence go with the saw—otherwise the saw would have probably sold as scrap iron. Ever since then, I’ve wanted a Biesemeyer fence again. I constantly combed eBay and checked craigslist, but all the Biesemeyer fences were either in poor shape, too expensive, or ‘loc...

Defective Out Of The Box

Defective Out Of The Box

09-26-2017 01:03 AM by Wodbug | 9 comments »

Update 09/28/2017:Was in contact with Jerry Cole, In Line, this morning. He was out of pocket for several weeks and is now active again. We talked about the bowed platforms and as both sides are veneered and even with me putting a cleat on the rear edge of the platform, did not make the platform flat. Jerry is calling PTree to see if they will replace both platforms, not the complete system. My shipping cost should be about 15.00. That I can do. The appr. cost of shipping at 70.00 came from a...
