Great for uneven floors

Great for uneven floors

10-14-2009 06:39 AM by DannyBoy | 8 comments »

From the start, I needed to make sure that my saw would be movable. With a small shop, floor space is at a premium and it only makes things difficult to admit that my floor is not at all level and even. This system took care of both of those needs. The casters are well built and work well on the uneven floor. Plus, once you are done moving the unit, you flip it down onto it’s own feet right into your floors sweet-spot. Two bits of advice: First, you probably won’t matc...

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

11-16-2009 07:03 AM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

So as promised (in Knottscott's review of the Delta 35-7657), here’s my review of its 60-tooth cousin. The night Scott reviewed that blade, I noticed Tooliday had the 60-tooth version up for $25, plus $5 S/H. I had been looking at Freud blades that were about $20-30 more, so I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. I’ve been using a single 40-tooth blade for everything (came with the tablesaw I bought used of Craigslist), along with painters tape to keep the chippin...

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

01-07-2010 03:40 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

This dado set is the 6 inch version of Freud’s dial-a-width model. There are several things I like about it but, as is often the case, there are trade-offs. The dial-a-width concept means that you do not need any shims. The outer cutter has a mechanism that, effectively, causes the width of that cutter to expand up to 7/64 of an inch in increments of 1/256 of an inch. Using the dial-a-width mechanism in lieu of shims is very convenient. Me and those shims never got along very well....

New Splitter From the St. Louis WW Show

New Splitter From the St. Louis WW Show

02-25-2010 06:12 AM by John Gray | 8 comments »

I purchased this at the WW show a couple of weeks ago and it works great. I still treat the saw with all the due caution I did before the splitter installation. Use and follow all the safety precautions outlined in your saw’s manual.I’m going to post below the information provided by the company that made it’s web site. Our New MJ Splitter™ SteelPRO is constructed from a 100% polycarbonate shell and reinforced with a solid stainless steel core. Our toughest splitter eve...

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

12-15-2012 06:14 PM by mbs | 8 comments »

I purchased this adjuster to make very fine adjustments on my sawstop table saw. The base is magnetic and the magnets are pretty strong. I’ve modified my review since I took another look at the device. This unit doesn’t work properly on my Sawstop because it needs to sit directly where the scale indicator sits. I looked at Rockler’s website and some people have made extensions to compensate for the interference. I’m not sure if I want to mess with it or not. ...

The Ridgid digital miter gauge

The Ridgid digital miter gauge

12-02-2012 03:05 PM by garriv777 | 8 comments »

This will be my first review posted at this site and I felt I should share my experience with this tool because someone else left a glowing review and I just had to let people know that this same tool was not at all the quality tool that I thought it was going to be. Maybe I just got a bad one or something but the following is my account of the quality of this tool: I purchased this tool online at the HD website along with a Bosch router. The packaging was fine, no damage at all and I was ...

Problems and fixes

Problems and fixes

02-21-2013 10:41 PM by captferd | 8 comments »

One problem is that because its made of 2 pieces of plastic glued together it will break apart at the seam. You can try to glue it back together but it soon comes apart again. (This is an update 40 days after the first post. Walmart sells a 3pk of generic super glue for 89 cents. I glued it up and clamped it lightly over night. It seems to be holding up fine.) Other than that, I love this thing. It will move the fence thousandths at a time, allowing you to sneak up on a precise cut. If ...

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...

As is often the case with Carba-Tec tools (FYI, Carba-Tec is Australia and New Zealand’s equivalent to Rockler), this is probably some other companies product that has been bought under licence and rebranded (this is common place – my Carba-Tec branded bench top mortiser for example, came with an Axminster user manual). It is none the less an excellent piece of equipment and well worth the NZ$180 that I spent on it.It is very heavy and solidly made, and was bang on accurate right out...

I had become frustrated with my wooden, shop-made feather boards. I could never get the length of the “feathers” or the spacing/gaps between them to be just right for the type and thickness of wood being used. They were either too stiff or too weak. Knowing I was going to be ripping a considerable amount of thin stock, I wanted something safer, so I decided to give Harbor Freight a try. I’ve used this feather board every day for the past month – mainly on my TS b...
