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

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

1738 days ago 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 ...

Nice Tenoning jig, but....

Nice Tenoning jig, but....

1730 days ago by drfixit | 11 comments »

I had to modify it, by drilling new holes for the miter bar to use it on my Ridgid TS3612 saw. It has 2 sets of holes in it, but one set put it on top of my blade and the other set put it too far away. It was very easy to assemble other than this but after assembling it and adjusting it. It has 3 adjustable screws to fit your miter slot. It can be used for any angled tenon from 0 to 45 degrees. Wish I had bought one sooner.

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

1711 days ago 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...

Great Product (after you modify them)

Great Product (after you modify them)

1705 days ago by SteveMI | 3 comments »

I got a used TS couple monts ago that was an upgrade to me. It has the standard 3/4” miter slots in the cast iron table unlike my prior aluminum. So, while browsing the local Woodcraft for feather boards I saw the JessEm and thought to give them a try. Today I had a chance to actually use them and found they are a great product, but are having some manufacturing problems. The key to the design are some rectangle head bolts that slide in slots molded in the plastic feather boards a...

Way Better Than Home Made Inserts

Way Better Than Home Made Inserts

1691 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I was going to do the usual cutting and fitting and fussing with making myself some ZCIs’ for my new Unisaw. Then I thought about exploring the world of commercially made inserts. there are allot to choose from. I was going to go with a system by Lee Valley/Veratris. It has very cool interchangeable plates and a single Alum. insert. But it was a little more than I wanted to pay ($79.00) for an insert. So I was at Woodcraft yesterday buying wheels, and I saw the Leecraft. It seemed reall...

I was super excited when I got this at Rockler a couple weeks ago. They had a great sale spend $100 get $30 off and I thought this would be the perfect little add on to my newly restore G1023. So today I finally decided to put this slick little sucker onto my TS. Instructions are not what I like but they are easy enough to figure out. I drilled hold in my tubes got the rails of the DRO connected. Then went to attach the hangers to the DRO Rails and, well nothing as in it wouldn’t tig...

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

1659 days ago 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....

Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

1648 days ago by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

“This is awesome,” said host John Palanca, on an episode of DIY Network’s “Under Construction.” “It’s a great concept, great idea that is well thought out by a carpenter. Half the job on a jobsite is setting up and this is already set up for you.”

Milescraft push stick kit

Milescraft push stick kit

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the milescraft push stick kit. In episode 22 I built a push stick and that worked pretty good but I always had a hard time getting the wood to go straight against the fence. I got this push stick kit from milescraft .You get a depth gauge and a base with the push stick. The way it is designed you have a lot downward pressure which helps to control the wood much better then the one I used to use.
