My GarageworX 4x4 CNC review

My GarageworX 4x4 CNC review

02-12-2017 04:32 PM by Mike Merzke | 3 comments »

This is the third CNC that I have had in my shop and is a review of the Garageworx CNC but based off not only the experiences I’ve had with the other two machines but also against my expectations of what I need a CNC to do in my shop. If you’d like to read the article I wrote about me previous CNC journey you can HERE. The GarageworX CNC is similar in some regards to other CNC kits on the market today because the owner assembles the machine and with that some of the quality and pe...

Infinity Shipping Issue

Infinity Shipping Issue

01-31-2017 07:09 PM by TomSanDiego | 38 comments »

I needed to replace the blades on my DeWalt 735 and my Powermatic 8 inch jointer. I did some research and most folks talked about the Infinity blades. So, I ordered them on December 31, 2016. They emailed back and said they would email me again when the blades shipped. Two weeks later, no email on the shipment. I emailed them and got no response. I called and got a machine. It took over three weeks to get my blades. In a day when vendors like Amazon get you items the next day, three w...

GRS-16 Guide Rail Square - AWESOME!

GRS-16 Guide Rail Square - AWESOME!

01-18-2017 01:44 PM by rlamb007 | 6 comments »

I love my track saw. But lets face it, if you own a track saw then you are probably obsessed with accuracy when making cuts. Track Saw owners tend to be very picky with wanting to cut something square to an edge. I am no different. Now I have found the ultimate track saw square that actually works flawlessly. Received this tool/square and within a few minutes I was making perfect SQUARE cuts that were dead on accurate. Workmanship is first rate, this thing will last for years. If you ...

Harbor Freight 5 Drawer Tool Cart

Harbor Freight 5 Drawer Tool Cart

01-09-2017 02:16 AM by Belford | 29 comments »

Assembly of the Harbor Freight Five Drawer Tool Cart Before you even begin to think about the assembly of the Harbor Freight Five Drawer Tool Cart you should take about seven or eight Valiums then wait for 20 minutes before you begin to unpack the tool cart. Don’t be fooled by the fact that you were the only person in the continental United States to get a packing crate with no holes or rips in the cardboard. That doesn’t mean a thing, you will find that the Chinese are very adept about...

Comparing Finger Joint Jigs

Comparing Finger Joint Jigs

01-04-2017 04:26 AM by ca8920 | 14 comments »

Rockler Finger Joint Jig Last year one of my Christmas presents was a Rockler Finger Joint Jig. Product Information: This jig is for use on virtually any router table with a standard 3/4” miter slot. The jig features a smooth-sliding backer sled and three precision-machined aluminum indexing keys to give you air-tight joints with either 1/4”, 3/8” or 1/2” spacing. Works with stock up to 3/4” thick. I found that this jig works well but isn’t extr...

First Impressions: Stepcraft-2/600 CNC

First Impressions: Stepcraft-2/600 CNC

12-31-2016 04:26 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 14 comments »

It started innocently enough. The woman who was doing engraving work on my guitars was suddenly out of business. When I started searching the web for alternatives, I was presented with dozens of results for engraving machines and very few for services. This got me thinking that I could maybe just do it myself — buy a small, inexpensive engraver for simple things like engraving truss rod covers and neck plates. I quickly discovered that the cheap laser engravers wouldn’t handle steel ...

Solid Tail Vise

Solid Tail Vise

11-22-2016 11:04 AM by MC | 2 comments »

After using this vise for a couple of months, I wanted to post a review of it. First off this is the best vise I have ever used. The operation is smooth and the holding power is excellent. There are two versions available, one with a machined hand wheel the other cast. All other parts are the same. As much as I would have liked to have the shiny one I could not justify the added cost. Installation takes care. The measurements need to be precise for the vise to work properly. The installa...

I gave Ryobi One a shot and love them.

I gave Ryobi One a shot and love them.

About 10 years ago I bought a Ryobi combo kit from home depot which included a drill, skill saw, sawzall and flashlight. It was promptly returned and I spend the extra money on a 18V Ridgid combo kit which I have added a few batteries and extra cordless tools to over the years. About three weeks ago I was noticing the batteries were getting tired, the drill was wearing out and the other tools were showing their age. I have been looking at the Roybi one stuff at home depot for a while think...

Entertaining, occasional rambling,  sometimes Jay is hard to hear

Entertaining, occasional rambling, sometimes Jay is hard to hear

10-04-2016 09:31 PM by Rick M | 6 comments »

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. This is my 3rd woodworking related podcast. [A note about the rating … There is no reason this isn’t a 4 or 5 star podcast depending on the criteria. Since the name is, The Woodworking Podcast, I feel obligated to review it as such and relative to the 360 or Shop Talk podcasts which have stronger woodworking content and standalone. Some of you wi...

Great content, easily sidetracked

Great content, easily sidetracked

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. Previously I reviewed the 360 Woodworking podcast. Shop Talk Live is a twice monthly, 1 hour, podcast by Fine Woodworking’s Tom McKenna, Mike Pekovich, Matt Kenney (It seems they switch this up once in awhile). Mostly they answer listener questions but also have guests and talk about the magazine and woodworking trade shows. I’ve been a listener s...
