Heavenly Performance

11-17-2013 07:24 PM by maplerock | 15 comments »

I have been struggling with my table saw. It was not a joy to use. Although it is a dream of a saw (unisaw 36-953), the performance was lacking. The effort I needed to push boards through was far more than should be necessary. I had my blades sharpened (Freud Diablo and another carbide tipped blade) and had no noticeable improvement. I bought a new combination Orion blade. It was better, but not good enough. I noticed the blade and table were a little out of alignment. After fixing ...

Shop Fox W1410 - get one while they last

Shop Fox W1410 - get one while they last

11-09-2013 06:05 PM by Garry | 8 comments »

I just (Nov. 9, 2013) got a Shop Fox W1410 fence for my Craftsman tablesaw at a great price. I took a chance even though it has been discontinued because it has great reviews from those who have one. ToolsandMore.us in Florida still has some (I don’t know how many). Call them to confirm. Previously priced at $250 plus, they are selling them now around $145 plus shipping. [Note – This is not the same company as toolsandmore.com.] I mounted it yesterday and used it for several cu...

Incra LS - TS on ridgid 4512

Incra LS - TS on ridgid 4512

09-22-2013 03:35 AM by EMC | 16 comments »

About a month ago I purchased a Ridgid 4512 to replace my dw744. Although this is not intended to be a review of the 4512, I will say that I am quite pleased with it. Once I had it assembled and set up I went through it carefully and set up the blade, fence and miter slots to all be parallel and was able to achieve great accuracy (within a few hundredths) without a lot of trouble. I have read about the issue many have had with the blade shifting position as it goes up and down, but I h...

Worth the money...

I did see an excellent review on this jig after posting mine, but here are my thoughts anyway… I purchased the I-Box about 4 months ago after seeing a positive comment on LJs and noticing it on sale at a local tool vendor, but did not take it out of the box as I didn’t have an immediate need for box joints – was in the middle of my bench build. I was recently asked to build a custom oak makeup desk with drawers for a friend, and thought maybe I would try out the jig fo...

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

Just completing the refurbishment of an older 3 HP Jet cabinet saw, I decided to indulge in the first “premium” blade I’ve ever owned. I read several threads discussing blades and was intrigued to find out what the Hi-ATB with the double sided grind was all about. Now that I have the power, I also wanted to get a non-thin kerf blade. This blade is “wicked sharp”... There are a lot of technical discussions already out there, so for my review, I decided to...

The SawStop ICS base is wonderful saw base, but comes just short of 5*

The SawStop ICS base is wonderful saw base, but comes just short of 5*

05-13-2013 03:22 PM by gtbuzz | 6 comments »

OverviewIn short, this is an absolutely wonderful base that I love using with my SawStop 3HP cabinet saw, however I do have a few nits that keep this from being a 5 star product. Having said that though, if anyone else is in a similar situation to me, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend the industrial base over the standard professional base. For those that are unaware, SawStop makes two different mobile bases for their cabinet saws, one designed for the Professional models...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...

Best plate out there

Best plate out there

04-25-2013 08:01 AM by Gary_ | 3 comments »

ColliBeck has recently manufactured a replacement throat plate for the new Delta Unisaw. After buying several of the Delta phenolic plates at $60+ and they are either twisted slightly or bowed there is finally a plate that is perfectly flat, doesn’t flex and it’s the last plate you will need to buy. Recently I purchased a white aftermarket phenolic and having to send it back because it was bowed .014 I started looking for something better. I found it. I run a small cabinet s...

A lot for very little

A lot for very little

I thought my saw was reasonably vibration free for a contractor but on start up and especially shut down it would give a slight shudder. After years of ignoring advice to buy a link belt I did and am sorry I waited so long because it’s like having a new saw. I only thought my saw ran smooth but now there is no more shudder even at shut down and I’d swear it cuts a little smoother though that might be psychosomatic. If you’ve been wanting to try a link belt and have been putt...
