Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

10-18-2017 06:55 PM by PPK | 1 comment »

It’s about time somebody posts a review… I’ll take up the baton… I was thinking about all the tools in my shop, and the one that stands out as earning its money back many times is my chopsaw. I bought this saw quite a long time ago (I was in high school, to be honest). To date, I have only ever adjusted the fence a tiny bit, and swapped out dull blades. The saw has served me well and maintained power and accuracy to this day. The DW703 is the saw I own (the firs...

POOR SERVICE AFTER THE SALE

I did a lot of research before buying a sander , Some of the thing I wanted in the sander was , I wanted a Double drum sander , Pay a little extra now to save time later , Next I want it wide to sand 20 -24 wood panels, and at least be able to sand 6-8 thick or deeper , it case I wanted to sand a box or something, and a descent price ,so it came down to the Delta 26 inch wide 31-481 or the grizzly 24 inch model well I thought I done a lot of research , but I didn’t , I find any revi...

Porter Cable Drill Press PCB660DP

Porter Cable Drill Press PCB660DP

Even though they’ve had a recent price increase on this unit it’s still an excellent buy. Even compared to online companies that specialize in woodworking and machine shop machines this is a feature packed press and it was in stock at my local Lowe’s so no shipping charges which for packaging this large and heavy are not cheap. Packing was in very good condition given the size and weight. Some of the styrofoam packing was broken but nothing significant or in places where it ...

Defective Out Of The Box

Defective Out Of The Box

09-26-2017 01:03 AM by Wodbug | 9 comments »

Update 09/28/2017:Was in contact with Jerry Cole, In Line, this morning. He was out of pocket for several weeks and is now active again. We talked about the bowed platforms and as both sides are veneered and even with me putting a cleat on the rear edge of the platform, did not make the platform flat. Jerry is calling PTree to see if they will replace both platforms, not the complete system. My shipping cost should be about 15.00. That I can do. The appr. cost of shipping at 70.00 came from a...

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

09-24-2017 04:23 AM by Rudy81 | 7 comments »

After many years of working on a basic Jet JWTS-10 that I got off Cragislist, I finally got a chance to purchase a Sawstop PCS. The saw purchase came after adding a Clear View Cyclone to the shop, but that’s another story. The Sawstop packaging was outstanding. Ease of assembly and directions were excellent. Fit and finish were also excellent and I found the tool alignment and calibration to be very good right out of the box. I purchased the PCS 3hp. unit with the 52” fence sys...

A great source of ideas

A great source of ideas

09-23-2017 02:20 PM by whope | 1 comment »

A few years ago I decided that I wanted to produce items with an Asian influence. To get more information and ideas, I browsed around Amazon and found this title. Seemed like it might be what I wanted. Indeed it is. It covers eight countries (and various regions) from India to Korea. Each chapter discusses general style of furniture and factors that contributed to that area’s style. Then there are many photos showcasing examples. There are also a couple pages on region wood and to...

So I decided to expand my hand tool collection. Did some research and settled on wood river for my first major hand tool investment. I am really pleased with the quality and performance of this tool. For more information on this line of planes, reference rob cosman via YouTube. Check out my initial reaction when opening this beautiful plane. https://youtu.be/xwCHgyJoIkA

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

09-16-2017 06:43 AM by unclearthur | 10 comments »

Pros:- Grizzly customer service is unfailingly polite- I learned a lot about tablesaws. Nothing like taking one apart to learn how they operate.- I’ve got a lot of practice using my bandsaw- adrenalin rush when you realize you’ve switched off the saw but the blade isn’t stopping! Cons:- brand new Grizzly G0690 tablesaw was unsafe to use- 2 months of wasted time - Having to return the 500 lb saw at my own time and expense to Grizzly Much of this saga is told in real...
