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 | 27 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 | 148 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...

One of the best ideas

One of the best ideas

10-21-2014 02:19 AM by ic3ss | 8 comments »

I’ve been looking at these for about a year and finally pulled the trigger last week. I had a kickback incident that smashed a couple of fingers last year and since then I’ve had my mind on ways to make my old Unisaw safer. This has got to be one of the best safety devices for the woodshop in many years. What it does is so basic its a wonder it has only recently been made commercially. It’s an expensive device to be sure, at $80. For me it took a few smashed fingers to ge...

Incra miter gauge very good, but it takes a bit of work

Incra miter gauge very good, but it takes a bit of work

10-13-2014 04:51 AM by ic3ss | 23 comments »

So I finally took the plunge and ditched my miter gauge that came with my old Unisaw. I never really used it, it just sat there if needed. Well, I knew from experience that it was crap so it has gone away. Bought the 1000HD a while back and have been using it for a few weeks and man am I impressed. This is what Made in USA is all about. I’ve been loving everything about it, but it took a bit of work. I picked it up at Rockler on sale for $119. First off, the thing is packaged ver...

My tenon making solution

My tenon making solution

10-09-2014 01:33 AM by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I’ve made tenons using several different methods. I had avoided buying a tenoning jig because it seemed like an unnecessary outlay of funds. I could make them by hand, with the bandsaw, or using a dado blade on the table saw. But for whatever reasons, I always have been a little frustrated by how they came out. I ended up doing way too much fine tuning with chisel/plane/sandpaper. So, I bit the bullet and purchased the Grizzly tenoning jig through Amazon, $88.59. I was annoyed...
