Laguna Driftmaster:  5 Stars for performance, 3 Stars for fit and finish

Laguna Driftmaster: 5 Stars for performance, 3 Stars for fit and finish

10-30-2014 12:05 PM by Rockne | 1 comment »

I’ve pretty well summed up my feelings about Laguna’s terrible customer service, or lack thereof (search for my review of the LT14 SUV). When they failed to deliver the saw, I sent all of the accessories/blades back to Laguna . . . except the Driftmaster. Had anyone out there produced something like it, I would have opted for the alternative, but since Laguna is the only game in town, I held onto it. When I opened the pacakge, I was a little disappointed. The clear plastic/c...

This hammer could be better, but with a little work it'll be fine.

One of my best purchases ever

One of my best purchases ever

10-28-2014 10:12 PM by CharlesA | 14 comments »

Back in July Paxorion posted a review of the Preppin’ Weapon. I was suspicious that any sanding block could be worth $21.95, but he gave it such high praise, and I was frustrated enough with what I was working with, that I thought I’d give it a try. This thing is great. I even sometimes reach for it when I might have grabbed my ROS in the past. I like the solid way it holds the sandpaper, the comfortable grip. the very even way it sands. I even waste less sandpaper because I...

Primary Bevel Grinding

Primary Bevel Grinding

10-27-2014 06:03 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

I have a 10” wet grinder (not Tormek) that I use all of the listed Tormek jigs on. I sharpen both turning tools and plane blades. The wet grinder does ok with reshaping HSS turning tools, but is slow and the wheel gets furrowed. The wet grinder does ok with O1 plane blades, and does fine with thin OEM Stanley blades. But, when it comes to thick A2 or HSS plane blades, it can take forever to regrind a primary bevel. In hopes of speeding things up a purchased the Tormek BGM-100 bench g...

height adjustment

height adjustment

10-27-2014 11:08 AM by Scrollers | 1 comment »

I have owned this saw for almost two years. I am going to retire in a little over a year and I have been setting up my workshop with tools that I feel I will need at that time. I haven’t been able to work down there very much but have done some work there. My question is the height adjustment. It won’t go down. It is in the up position now but won’t move. It has been this way ever since I have had it but didn’t do any thing with because I didn’t have the time. No...

Shelix cutterhead for DW735

Shelix cutterhead for DW735

10-26-2014 08:24 PM by johnstoneb | 7 comments »

I bought a DW735 planer about a year and a half ago. The knives were starting to get some nicks in them and time rotate then. I decided after talking with somebody at the local woodworking club that had changed to a Shelix cutterhead to do the same. I ordered the cutterhead direct from Byrd. Price was only about $10 more than Amazon and freight was less. so price worked out about the same. The cutterhead was well packed came with four extra cutters , the tool to change the cutters and...

10 years and still going

10 years and still going

10-25-2014 11:06 AM by Canadianteacher | 12 comments »

I am a shop teacher at a middle school in Abbotsford BC. We purchased 8 of these Dewalt scroll saws 10 years ago and have have only had to replace 1 of them (the motor went after 9 years). One more saw is making some funny sounds in its upper arm and will most likely be done soon (I will take the motor and place it in my other saw). The saws get used by grade 6-8 students cutting from 3/4” alder to 1 and 3/4” basswood. I must say that my students are not easy on the saws and I hav...

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

10-25-2014 10:57 AM by JHAstrello | 19 comments »

Like many, I started out buying a few things from Harbor Freight – for the most part because of the perceived ‘Killer Deals’ that they offer. That, and the ability to get their now famous 20% off Super Coupon that can be copied and used for any one piece of product. Here is what I have bought recently, and my experience. HF Dust System – it’s still in the box awaiting installation.HF Benchtop Belt/Disk sanderHF 2 ton Crane – primarily purchased to help m...
