Leecraft HT-1 Zero Clearance Insert

Leecraft HT-1 Zero Clearance Insert

09-08-2012 12:44 AM by SirFatty | 6 comments »

I’ve always made my own zero clearance inserts, and on the old Craftsman table I used previously, it was a pain to make them correctly. With my new Porter-Cable saw, it looked to be even more painful. This time around, a purchased ZCI seems like the way to go. A quick search showed one manufacturer appearing multiple times in the search results: Leecraft. A couple blanks were purchased from, and fulfilled by, Woodcraft via Amazon. When received, I was surprised by how heavy an...

Craftsman Universal Jig

Craftsman Universal Jig

Well I promised I wouldn’t buy something and post a review without using it… so much for that! I’m posting it because I bought it on clearance- 50% off. The cost was just under $16 bucks. So in case anyone wants to pick it up-i figured I’d post my initial impressions and hopefully there are some folks that have used one. I would have liked to have made my own jig, but for the price it was hard to beat. So far my initial impressions- 1. it’s made in Amer...

Safety has become too easy

Safety has become too easy

08-30-2012 05:45 PM by Woodendeavor | 11 comments »

I have been using a miter slot feather board on my table saw for some time now and call me lazy, half of the time I would not use it. Trying to set up for a single cut ripping sawmill lumber with one straight edge was such a hassle I quit doing it. I am a one man shop and the time it would take me to set up the old feather board I could rip 2 boards and for me that was too much. Lets jump forward to last night. I am working on a project that required crown molding and someone, I, forgot t...

As is often the case with Carba-Tec tools (FYI, Carba-Tec is Australia and New Zealand’s equivalent to Rockler), this is probably some other companies product that has been bought under licence and rebranded (this is common place – my Carba-Tec branded bench top mortiser for example, came with an Axminster user manual). It is none the less an excellent piece of equipment and well worth the NZ$180 that I spent on it.It is very heavy and solidly made, and was bang on accurate right out...

Watch out Diablo - Irwin does it again,  this time with 24 teeth

Watch out Diablo - Irwin does it again, this time with 24 teeth

08-19-2012 03:29 AM by lumberjoe | 23 comments »

I’ve been sitting on these blades for a while as I have been quite busy. Brand new in the package I have a 24 tooth Diablo rip blade, and a 24 tooth Irwin Marples rip blade. I did a comparison of the diablo/Marples 50 tooth blades, but the Diablo I had was used a few times. This time for comparisons sake, both are brand spankin new. Note: this review is for the Irwin Marples blade that that will be the focus. The Freud Diablo was used for comparison. All cuts were performed on a perf...

Needs More Mag

I have been interested in these magnetic featherboards since they first came out. Recently I saw Ridgid came out with their version so I gave it a try. The idea is masterful. The execution is not. Although the fingers are supple, with just the right amount of pressure, the featherboard will not hold its position well. It would be hard to pull the featherboard straight up from a cast iron surface, however it slides too easily. One of the main reasons for having a featherboard on the tabl...

A good product for a craftsman .113

A good product for a craftsman .113

08-05-2012 12:35 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

A won’t go too in-deepth here. Its a pretty simple product and it works well. The insert has 4 leveling screws to adjust flush with the table top. It also has adjustable screws in the top/side to prevent any lateral movement (see pic). The insert actually fit pretty well out of the box. After about 2 minutes worth of adjustments, it was dead-on. Seems to be good quality and I have no reason to think it won’t last for years. I’ll probably buy two more for dado and thicker, cr...

Micro Jig MJ Splitter Steel PRO System w/Double Splitters

This is not full review but a first impression. Being disappointed by another product that I bought to use for a riving knife , I have been looking around for another product which would give the protection/safety that I desire when using my Unisaw.Last week I found the Micro Jig MJ Splitter Steel PRO System w/Double Splitters and after watching the videos on YouTube I ordered one on Amazon for $25.00. I received it yesterday and I installed it this morning. On the videos the installation ...

Move over Diablo, Irwin got something right for once

Move over Diablo, Irwin got something right for once

07-25-2012 02:39 PM by lumberjoe | 51 comments »

Yesterday I found myself in Lowes. Rumor was they were offloading all of their CMT stuff cheap. While browsing around I stumbled upon the Marples blades. Disclaimer I have a saw blade addiction. If I see something new or exciting, I have to buy it. It’s a problem and I need help! Also I am not a fan of Irwin at all. Their marathon blades are pure garbage, and the “classic” blades are a downgrade from whatever came on your saw – as hard to beleive as that is. I did some...

1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

07-21-2012 07:45 PM by David White | 16 comments »

Put this link belt onto my table saw this morning – it took all of 5 minutes – and am amazed at the difference it made. The saw is now almost totally vibration free and is much quieter too. If your saw vibrates, you need this belt.
