Jet 1640 EVS - First Impressions

Jet 1640 EVS - First Impressions

06-23-2017 11:40 PM by WoodworkingVet | 5 comments »

When I started turning I bought a Rikon 70-220vsr midi lathe. Its a great lathe and served my needs quite well until I decided I wanted to go bigger. Two months ago I found a Jet 1642 for sale a few hours away and later that afternoon it followed me home. What a great lathe, but it lacked one feature that I was hoping to have in a new lathe. Because of some challenges that I have with my feet and back I find it difficult at times to stand at the lathe or to bend over the bed when hollowing. F...

Porter-Cable PC160JT 6'' VS Jointer

Porter-Cable PC160JT 6'' VS Jointer

06-22-2017 12:41 PM by CalOrgill | 11 comments »

The service from Max Tool was what was promised. The jointer was delivered on time and in great condition. I was building like this chair as well products Set up went smoothly until I got to a few of the screws that needed to be loosened. The heads of the hex screws stripped with pressure on the hex wrench. Luckily I could clamp vice grips on the head and it finally cracked loose. That is, at least, the one for the blade head lock. I never got the top two for the dust collector attachment loo...

Mohawk Finishing Products Brush Tip Graining Markers

Mohawk Finishing Products Brush Tip Graining Markers

06-21-2017 04:42 PM by RichTaylor | 3 comments »

These are brush tip graining markers from Mohawk. As can be seen in the photo, the tip is extremely fine and capable of making grain patterns almost as fine as a human hair. They are true brush tips, and perform just like a fine artist’s brush, but without the need to load them with stain, and clean afterwards. Just pop the cap back on and they’ll be ready for next time. One feature that stands out is the opacity of the mark. I’ve used felt tip touch up markers to fix...

Scroll Saw Comfort Knobs

Scroll Saw Comfort Knobs

06-21-2017 01:04 PM by Triumph1 | 4 comments »

I picked up a set of these after reading Woodmaster1’s review of them. I also tracked down the YouTube video he spoke of. The seller of the comfort knobs is Marcus Bailey. Marcus is probably one of the nicest people I have emailed/spoke to. Very helpful and he sent the knobs out right away. I received them in three days. I have an Excalibur 21” scroll saw so the original knob design is a bit different than the DeWalt knobs. That being said it still only took about 20 minutes ...

Budget spiral cutterhead upgrade for 6" jointer

Budget spiral cutterhead upgrade for 6" jointer

06-19-2017 08:44 PM by Mike_D_S | 6 comments »

Short story: Fits Delta 37-190, easy to install. Only put about 20 bf across it so far, but cut quality is very good. I’m giving it five stars due to the cut quality, but the instructions were marginal but usable. Long Story:I’ve been wanting to upgrade my jointer to a spiral head for a while, but couldn’t bring myself to drop the nearly $400 on my older Delta 37-190. The Delta is a quality machine and with a few minor tweaks around adding a port for dust collection, I...

A Good Saw, I'd Say!

A Good Saw, I'd Say!

06-13-2017 06:15 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

My old benchtop table saw bit the dust not so long ago, so I started researching for a replacement. This saw not only met those requirements but gave me two bunuses. I wanted a saw that was not too much more than my last one and I wanted a greater cutting width and some kind of on-board outfeed support. This one gave me everything. For that matter, the T-slots match the ones on my old saw which was not the same brand, so I was able to use my cross-cut sled from the start! The Good: The ...

Sweet jointer at a very nice price

Sweet jointer at a very nice price

06-13-2017 10:11 AM by leftcoaster | 3 comments »

I already own Cutech’s bench top planer and like it a lot. Now that I have the space for it, it was time for a jointer and having liked the spiral cutterhead for the planer, why not for the jointer too? I had an issue with some of the cast pieces that was resolved after some email back and forth with Mike from Cutech, who was super helpful. He mailed me replacement parts and they worked very well. The jointer works great and comes with a nice set of pushpads. Best of all for me...
