Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

08-14-2015 12:30 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 5 comments »

I needed to increase the cutting capacity of my table saw and last fall I bought a Vega Pro 50 fence system. I originally wanted to get a Biesemeyer, but I really need both my legs and both my arms. My table saw is a Rigid 2424. I wanted to use the fence for a while before writing a review. I have put it through the paces and the following is my take on the fence. Aftermarket fences can be really expensive and may require a good amount of modifications to your table saw. That was not ...

Should have gotten this a long time ago

Should have gotten this a long time ago

07-21-2015 12:29 PM by whope | 12 comments »

The old Sears Craftsman TS *circa early 90’s) I have really doesn’t have a riving knife. Bought a Zero Clearance Insert a few years ago. Usually don’t have a problem with pinching with oak. Started ripping some poplar and the first cut pinched really hard and I stopped and ordered the Micro Jig (as the nearest retailer is a bit of a drive). I waited a whole week before installing it. Not sure why, other than I didn’t have a suitable scrap of 1/2” MDF to use. B...

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

06-06-2015 04:27 AM by athomas5009 | 10 comments »

I ended up picking up a cpl of these to replace the garbage plastic OEM ones on my Cman 113 saw. I was a little lerious whether they would work because I ran across a few unhappy reviews because of difficulties modifying the fit. Well they arrived today and I couldn’t be happier! The are nice stuffy and turn real smoothly. Installation was a breeze and I don’t see why some would complain. As long as you have a drill press just bore the center hole to 1/2” then pop a 1/4&#...

Grizzly H7583 Tenoning Jig

Grizzly H7583 Tenoning Jig

04-30-2015 12:24 AM by Jagerheister | 27 comments »

A few day ago I purchased a Grizzly tenoning jig for an upcoming project on Amazon for $78.00 USD. I did quite a bit of research prior to pulling the trigger on the purchase, and I didn’t find many sources of video demonstrations or specific product info other than specifications and written instructions. I decided to do a video just to propagate and proliferate information on this product. I’ve provided a link below to a video review that I did of the unboxing, and assembly....

Oshlun HI-ATB Ultimate General Purpose

Oshlun HI-ATB Ultimate General Purpose

04-01-2015 02:17 AM by eljiggo | 4 comments »

Hello Everyone! After reading a review(a very old review at that) knottscott made on the Oshlun General Purpose 40t, I inquired about the Oshlun ULTIMATE general purpose, a hi-atb general purpose. Noone seemed to know anything, so amazon was nice enough to deliver one to me for $34.30. First Impressions: The blade has that aesthestic ferocity to it that only a 40t hi-atb blade can present. It was very sharp out of the box. Close inspection of the blade shows large carbide teeth (not qui...

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 | 11 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 ...
