100x better than the stock miter gauge

100x better than the stock miter gauge

02-03-2011 12:23 AM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

Just picked this up from Amazon last week and it arrived two days ago. Assembly took about 30 minutes and was straightforward. I especially like the adjustability of the bar that fits in the miter track. It was close right out of the box, but after adjusting it, there is literally zero play and it still slides like butter. The abrasive that sticks to the face of the miter gauge really works. I cut a few test miters and the workpiece stayed exactly where I put it. The extendability is ...

SD508 Freud 8" Dado Set

01-03-2011 01:14 AM by Ken90712 | 9 comments »

I was making some candleholders and my Dado Blades were junk and chipping wood on every cut. Then my local Rockler Store sent me a coupon with 40% off any single item excluding Power Tools. Sweet!, I tell Blondie I’m off to Rockler to save some money… LOL…. The set is $199.00 so that’s 80 bucks off. She brainwashed my sometime ago to always look for sales. Another story sometime, LOL…. Man, I thought my Forrest Woodworker 2 Blade was something. This set is more than impressive! Th...

magic molder is great

now, i’m by no means am I a professional but the results on this thing i think is exceptional. very little sanding if any at all , quick and easy plugs changes, and the ease of use on the table makes it a winner. first off i only have a portable table saw but i tell ya brothers the saw never bogged down at all when i was feeding mahogany,oak or walnut through as i was making some profiles—just pure experimentation by the way. the plugs are not cheap but they work very well̵...

SawStop Dust Collection Blade Guard & Over Arm Dust Collection

SawStop Dust Collection Blade Guard & Over Arm Dust Collection

12-30-2010 03:16 AM by Darell | 19 comments »

Received this dust collection system for Christmas. Goes to show that momma pays attention when I send her hints. LOL! Anyway, installation is very easy and straight forward. The biggest issue, at least for the Contractor Saw is that the splitter & riving knife are slightly thicker with this upgrade. The old splitter/riving knife being .079 and the new one .090. This means you will need to readjust the riving knife lockdown clamp slightly so there isn’t to much pressure on the...

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

12-13-2010 03:17 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I ordered the Dust Collecting Blade Cover (DCBC) sold by Bob Ross from The BORK Store. I think this is a fairly new product from Bob as he literally designed it to my specifications. His original design called for a 2-1/4” hose but that size of hose is hard to connect to a fixed dust collector. I asked him if he could make it to fit 2-1/2” hose and that I was planning on mounting it to 2” sch40 PVC pipe. One other thing that Bob did for me was to make the arms a little l...

Harbor Freight Link Belt

Harbor Freight Link Belt

11-30-2010 12:15 AM by ChuckC | 22 comments »

A Harbor Freight opened up about 15 minutes from where I live. I took a ride out yesterday and walked the aisles for about 30 minutes. It’s not the kind of place I’d buy a parachute from but you can get a good deal on some of their stuff. I ended up buying a 5’ link belt for $24. I replaced the stock belt on my jointer with it and noticed a dramatic improvement in vibration. I’ve never had a competitors belt to compare it against but I am happy with their’s so I&...

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

11-17-2010 05:16 PM by knotscott | 12 comments »

A few weeks ago I added this blade guard to my Shop Fox W1677. Even though I’m aware of the risks, I’m admittedly one of those who finds most stock blades guards to be cumbersome and even somewhat more dangerous because they severely obscure my view of the cut. (I realize that viewing the cut isn’t necessary, but I’m much more comfortable when I can see it) However I am a strong advocate for using a good splitter or riving knife, and have had the BORK riving knife on...

Why pay more?

Why pay more?

10-29-2010 03:42 PM by lovinmrv | 21 comments »

I bought a new (used) craftsman belt drive table saw about a month ago and was amazed at the vibration. So, following the lead of all the LJ’s who love their link belts, I thought I’d give it a try. In comparing prices, I found two price points:- Harbor freight at $4 per foot, and- Everyone else at $8 per foot. Yankee that I am, guess which price point I chose? I adjusted the length and installed the belt in under 30 minutes last night (Note: I sized the belt to match th...

IN-LINE INDUSTRIES PP2325 Machined Steel Pulleys

I have a Craftsman 10” contractors table saw that I bought new about 6 years ago for just over $500. I am a hobbyist woodworker and the saw suits my needs. Recently the saw developed a really bad vibration and loud rattle. I took a look at everything using a dial indicator and everything checked out. There was favorable review in Wood magazine a few years ago regarding this product so I thought I would give it a try. I wanted the pulleys and link belt which was $50 shipped. They told me...
