When I was looking for replacement sheaves for my table saw, finding reviews and specific products was hard to find. There’s the in-line tune up kit that comes with a belt and two “pulleys”. I wasn’t took keen on purchasing that kit since I already had a link belt, plus the additional shipping charge didn’t do anything for me. After poking around I found this pair on Amazon, for about $11 each. I decided to give them a go. I was pleasantly surprised. They had ...

Good Belt

Good Belt

03-21-2015 05:44 AM by B4B | 10 comments »

So I found a couple 25% off coupons for Harbor Freight. I decided to pickup a link-belt to replace the worn belt on my table saw as part of the tune-up I did recently. The old rubber belt was worn, and I read a lot of good things about these link belts in general, as well as generally good reviews for the Harbor Freight link belt. The one I picked up was labeled “Jason Industrial Inc” and was green in color. I was able to get it sized up and installed in no time. I fired up ...

Awesome blade

Awesome blade

03-08-2015 05:38 AM by TheFridge | 13 comments »

I got it for Christmas and have used the hell out of it. Rips and crosscuts cypress, pine, poplar, mahogany, wenge, sapele, walnut, maple, and ply like butter. There may be better blades out there for a little bit cheaper but I haven’t tried them. I’ve only used Freud Diablo blades and cheap hand me downs up to this point. I believe it costs about 45-50$ for Forrest to sharpen it back to factory specs so that is a plus.

Solid fence at a good price

Solid fence at a good price

02-07-2015 06:09 PM by sgmdwk | 26 comments »

It has been a few years since this fence was reviewed on Lumberjocks, so I decided to throw in my two cents worth. I own a Craftsman 113 series contractor table saw I purchased new in 1989. It has been a reliable tool, for me, but has always left a bit to be desired. The single greatest issue has been the fence. Every rip cut has required multiple measurements from both the front and back of the blade to ensure parallel alignment. While a minute or two might not be a great sacrifice, over the...

FastCap Gave Me The Finger ...

FastCap Gave Me The Finger ...

01-31-2015 12:19 AM by TheDane | 35 comments »

... and I like it! A few weeks ago, I responded to a promotional email from FastCap and they sent me their new ’11th Finger’ for free. Some people here on LJ’s scoffed at it, but I actually kind of like it. It stands within easy reach on my saw’s fence or the table, and works as well as any other push stick I have ever used. There is one downside … the two rare-earth magnets in the base are just friction fit and can come out if you mistakenly lay the ...

Stumpy Nubs Box Joint Jig 2.0

Stumpy Nubs Box Joint Jig 2.0

01-15-2015 06:35 PM by NKYKelly | 3 comments »

I had previously purchased the Gear-Driven Box Joint Jig plan from Woodgears.ca. After getting tired of thining about conversion of the Metric Plan, I came across Stumpy’s v2.0 design. Also, one of the first things I built was the Woodsmith Adjustable Box Joint Jig. I like it and used it a great deal, but setup to achieve a great fitting joint was time-consuming This is a good plan and a very unique design. Stumpy is much like Mathias and John Heinz. Great brain for design, but ...

Bought this defective switch from Peachtree-read on for potential dangers and poor customer service

Bought this defective switch from Peachtree-read on for potential dangers and poor customer service

01-15-2015 01:39 PM by ellen35 | 149 comments »

I was at the Woodworking Show in West Springfield this past weekend. I was looking for a large paddle switch to turn off my table saw. Peachtree has always been my “go to” company for things like this. So I purchased a Fulton Power Tool Switch from them for $25. I got it home and began the very simple set up but when I tried to use the large paddle to turn off the machine, it worked only intermittently… maybe once every 10 pushes! This is not only defective but could be...

MicrogJig's GRR-RIPPER GR100 Up For Review

MicrogJig's GRR-RIPPER GR100 Up For Review

01-12-2015 09:16 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

I recently reviewed the GR100 by MicroJig and was pretty impressed. The green grippy surface really does it’s job on keeping a secure hold on your work as you use it on the table saw. It was especially helpful when making 2” deep cuts on the tablesaw through cherry. I used the GRR-RIPPER to push the stock against the fence, and a regular push stick on top of the board to help advance the stock through the blade. I’ll have a video on my YouTube of this soon (I hope). ...

Begininng with the Installation of the EEZE FEED infeed table

Begininng with the Installation of the EEZE FEED infeed table

12-27-2014 07:48 PM by psient | 2 comments »

I was on You Tube looking for someone’s experience installing Lee Jesberger’s EEZE FEED infeed tablesaw table. I did not find any videos capable of helping my installation. Here, I’ve started to describe my own installation as a review and something of a guide for others. I’ll be installing the EFIT on my powermatic PM3000 7 HP table saw: http://www.powermatic.com/Products.aspx?Part=1720305K I purchased the saw several years ago. This was as much a health deci...

Out of box near perfect

Out of box near perfect

12-05-2014 06:11 PM by dozer57 | 8 comments »

Incra 1000hd with no adjustment is near perfect on angles. I am new to segmented turning and my miter fence for my craftsman table saw was junk, Three stops and sloppy fit in the track, never able to repeat angles. I would have to sand each piece to get a fit that I was happy with. NO more ordered Incra 1000hd from Amazon.com took it out of the box and installed it on the table saw with only adjustment made to T-track. First thing noticed was how smooth the track slid in the slot. Miters were...
