Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

I picked up a nice, 12’ long piece of red oak S4S for ripping down into smaller stock. I needed 12’ lengths, but I also realized how much control I did not have if I tried to feed the board into my table saw from 11’ away from the blade. I didn’t think about handling and ripping it in my small shop. I mean, I have the length, but I did not want to have to crawl under the long boards to puzzle the ripping process together. After pondering the process for a moment for...

What an upgrade for an old Craftsman TS

What an upgrade for an old Craftsman TS

06-23-2011 03:47 PM by brtech | 9 comments »

I’ve got an older (Emerson) Craftsman TS (113.298240). The stock fence is a joke, but I’ve made do. I finally decided to do something about it, and a T2 was it. Got it at Tools-Plus for $148 + 6.50 shipping. It came pretty well packed via UPS. The box was a bit caved in, but the parts were fine. Excellent manual, very clear, real English. The fence is made in Taiwan. Fit and finish appear to be excellent. There are two ways to mount the fence to this TS. One is to dril...

Great product, even better support!

Great product, even better support!

06-22-2011 02:44 AM by felkadelic | 5 comments »

I originally picked this up last fall at Rockler, at a significant discount from the $84.99 MSRP (I believe I got it for $49.99). At the time, I didn’t have a table saw with a standard miter slot, so I was only able to use this on my router table for routing the end of pieces. While it worked just fine for that task, I held off judgment until getting a table saw so that I could use this for its main intended purpose. A couple weeks ago I got a new (to me) Unisaw and was finally abl...

Totally Worth It

Totally Worth It

06-02-2011 07:17 PM by Vrtigo1 | 23 comments »

A little background to give this review some context. I am a beginning WW, been doing it about 18 months now. I am at the point where I am able to appreciate good tools and justify spending money on them. With that being said, blades have never been a high priority for me. I have been using cheap blades from home depot up to now because I didn’t think a hundred dollar blade would make a huge difference in the quality of my work. Well, I found out that I could use my Amex reward p...

How do you keep your portable table saw dry in the back of your pickup truck...

I’ve had people asking for a cover for a folding, portable table saw. A lot of people fold them up and throw them in the back of the pickup truck. Then, off they go, down the road…and it starts to rain. Pull over, drag a tarp, or a piece of plywood on it, it’s raining and the tarp blows off… OR… pull the KerryAll Saw Pouch out from behind the seat (they fold up to about the size of a half-roll of paper towel. Two bungee cords and it’s secure.It’s ...

Good Box Joint Jig

Good Box Joint Jig

04-03-2011 02:34 AM by RandyMorter | 10 comments »

Just so you know, this is the first commercial jig I’ve ever used like this. I’ve never cut a box joint before in my life. In other words, I’m a noob. I ordered the Woodhaven 4555 Box Joint Jig from Amazon for $59.99 on 3/26/2011 and received it in Phoenix on 4/1/2011. I purchased it from Amazon rather than directly from Woodhaven because the shipping was free but now I see Woodhaven ships free on orders over $50 (according to the catalog that came with the unit). I lo...

A simple solution

A simple solution

03-31-2011 08:51 AM by Tedstor | 11 comments »

I bought this featherboard yesterday for use with my old craftsman table saw. Works about as well as any miter slot featherboard, but the on/off magnetic feature means I can mount this anywhere on the primary table or extension wings. Although I did not consider it at the time of purchase, I could also see this product being useful on my jointer, and especially my shaper. The magnets are STRONG, and the featherboard didn’t move even slightly during the two cuts I’ve made with it s...

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

03-22-2011 06:55 AM by thamar | 20 comments »

As part of my shop upgrade, I decided to ditch my old “Mule” sliding table. I ordered the Laguna Professional Sliding Table. The website indicated that it would fit my Delta Unisaw and the person I talked to at Laguna said that some of their customers had mounted it on Unisaws. Once I received the sliding table, it just didn’t seem to me that it would fit my right tilt Unisaw. The right hand mounting bracket would have gotten in the way of the tilt wheel. The sliding...

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...

Safety First Featherboard

Safety First Featherboard

02-09-2011 04:48 PM by woodklutz | 5 comments »

I know that the other day I wrote that we should make our own jigs rather than get hyped into buying one.Well it seems that I WAS WRONG when it came to featherboards. This device from Milescraft is well made, practical and eye appealing. It comes complete with fittings for both 3/4 and 5/8 miter slots.I ordered the double set from Amazon, this really makes sense both dollar wise and usefulness. I leave one on the router table fence and one in the table saw slot. Moving one or the other when ...
