Tenryu Gold Medal Dado Not Exactly What I Had Hoped For.

Tenryu Gold Medal Dado Not Exactly What I Had Hoped For.

10-20-2009 05:48 PM by Russ Anderson | 15 comments »

This is a brief review of the Tenryu GMD. First Impression: The blades look of extremely high quality with thick bodies. Box: I personally don’t like the wood box because you have to lift out all of the chippers in order to get to the outer blades. Cut Quality: The side blades are excellent in MDF, and Plywood core veneers, as well as melamine. The bottom of the dado is the flattest, smoothest that I have seen. I’ve owned two previous dado sets, one from Systi-Matic, and ...

I like I-Box

I like I-Box

01-03-2014 06:46 PM by Kerry Drake | 15 comments »

Got the I-Box for Christmas and finished setting it up yesterday. The pictures show my very first test pieces using a 3/8 inch dado stack. Once you understand what’s going on with the jig, it is very easy to use and it gave me near perfect results on my very first test. Set up takes about 15 minutes out of the box, but it comes with a very good set of instructions and a DVD showing the entire process from beginning to end. For me, now, the hardest part about making really good bo...

Heavenly Performance

Heavenly Performance

11-17-2013 07:24 PM by maplerock | 15 comments »

I have been struggling with my table saw. It was not a joy to use. Although it is a dream of a saw (unisaw 36-953), the performance was lacking. The effort I needed to push boards through was far more than should be necessary. I had my blades sharpened (Freud Diablo and another carbide tipped blade) and had no noticeable improvement. I bought a new combination Orion blade. It was better, but not good enough. I noticed the blade and table were a little out of alignment. After fixing ...

Smartmiter miter gauge sled

Smartmiter miter gauge sled

05-09-2008 09:08 PM by OttawaP | 14 comments »

I’ve been in the market for a new miter gauge . I’ve sold my previous Kreg due to it’s short length and light structure. While it was exceptionally accurate, I just found the crosscut length too short and was always afraid if I ever dropped it would be bent. I considered the Jessum, Accumiter, and Osbourne as the top contenders until I found the Smart Miter. The Jessum I found a little fiddly with the two pin set up and there did seem to be some issues with this system from what I’ve read on...

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

07-29-2008 05:46 AM by Tim Dorcas | 14 comments »

In the past one of the things I hated to was rip thin pieces of wood. Typically this is done to create keys for mitered joints. Last December I was going to build a one of the many jigs that you can find online when Rockler came out with their Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig. For $20 I thought, “Why not?” It arrived about three weeks later (They were sold old initially and everything takes longer in Canada.) and I was surprised at the quality of it’s construction. If anything the fit ...

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

05-11-2009 08:44 AM by mart | 14 comments »

A friend flew down to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he bought and was going to be going through Washington on the way back to Alaska. I took advantage of the opportunity to have him swing by the Grizzly warehouse to pick up some equipment for me. In addition to an eight inch jointer which I will preview later, I had him pickup the Shop Fox Classic Fence System with Standard Rails. I finally got around to installing it yesterday and it couldn’t have been easier. It went on my old Grizz...

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

07-20-2009 10:20 PM by TheDane | 14 comments »

Review: Shop Fox Classic Fence Bottom line: The “Shop Fox Classic Fence” has proven to be an excellent addition to my workshop. My table saw is a Jet JWTS-10 (708100). I have always liked this saw (see review at http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/333), but was never completely satisfied with the fence. After a good deal of online research, I settled on the “Shop Fox Classic Fence”, and found a very good deal on it from Warren Cutlery, a Shop Fox dealer in Rhinebec...

Using the Delta T-2 to replace the Ridgid 4511 fence

Using the Delta T-2 to replace the Ridgid 4511 fence

03-26-2012 01:55 AM by MoshupTrail | 14 comments »

A few weeks ago I started a forum topic about fixing the lame fence system that came with the Ridgid 4511 Granite top table saw. The problem with the Ridgid’s fence is that the guide tube is split and joined in the middle with a cheap plastic part. The plastic part forces one of the tubes to be slightly offset from the other making it impossible to adjust the fence angle. When the fence slides from one tube to the other the angle will change slightly. Initially I was thinking to...

First dedicated rip blade

First dedicated rip blade

10-10-2012 03:55 AM by dnick | 14 comments »

After all these years, I finally bought a rip blade, when I saw a good deal on Amazon. Always used combination blades before. What I really liked about the Freud LU87R010 was the thin kerf & the flat tooth grind. Always wanted flat tooth for grooves & spine joints. Blade was great. I ripped some soft Maple & Mahogony & didn’t have to joint the edges. Then when installing the blade, after maybe 20 rips, I just happened to notice the tooth you see in the photo, because it ...

I like the new design of Infinity's zero clearance insert.

I like the new design of Infinity's zero clearance insert.

03-06-2013 03:41 AM by mbs | 14 comments »

I am not affiliated with Infinity in any way. This review refers to the design made on 3/1/13. Infinity has made modifications to the design of their ZCI for Sawstop that allows the saw blade to operate at full height. It’s machined out of aluminum and anodized red. The new unit doesn’t need the moving mechanism that sawstop uses. Fit and finish are great. Infinity drilled access holes in the plate so it’s easy to adjust the height of the insert from above the tabl...
