I discovered Lumberjocks while researching my new saw purchase, so I thought it only right to make my first post a review of my new saw. As you can see it is a Grizzly 1023RL. I have been using it for five weeks and am ready to give my opinion. Assembly was straight forward. The manual is very good with no confusing translations. The only hassle was getting the extension wings perfectly flat to the table. It probably would have been a little easier with some assistance, but I was work...

HQRP washable Shopvac replacement filters

HQRP washable Shopvac replacement filters

07-27-2015 05:03 PM by dschlic1 | 4 comments »

I purchased four of these filters about two years ago. Most of the OEM filters would not stand up and were difficult to clean. These are excellent filters, easy to clean (wash them off with water) and extremely durable. After two years of use I have yet to have one fail. These filters are rater H12 or in the newer ratings E12. Not clean room standards but more than good enough for a shop vacuum. The only down side is that they do not come with the cover that goes on the end of the filter and ...

My review of the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Spindle Sander

My review of the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Spindle Sander

07-22-2015 01:32 AM by coloradotrout | 32 comments »

Hi, after much deliberation, and reading and rereading the FWW review, I bought the EB4424, Ridgid Oscillating Spindle Sander. 7/24/15 Update:I returned the unit, and bought a 2nd one. It is more or less the same; certainly no better. All the same issues below apply. I have not powered it on yet, but the tilt-able table is not flat—with the same sort of crown near the spindle. If the tilt-able table is set perpendicular to the spindle, than it is not co-planer with the fixed...

Should have gotten this a long time ago

Should have gotten this a long time ago

07-21-2015 12:29 PM by whope | 11 comments »

The old Sears Craftsman TS *circa early 90’s) I have really doesn’t have a riving knife. Bought a Zero Clearance Insert a few years ago. Usually don’t have a problem with pinching with oak. Started ripping some poplar and the first cut pinched really hard and I stopped and ordered the Micro Jig (as the nearest retailer is a bit of a drive). I waited a whole week before installing it. Not sure why, other than I didn’t have a suitable scrap of 1/2” MDF to use. B...

Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes

Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes

07-19-2015 04:53 PM by Oldtool | 4 comments »

Excellent two DVD set of disks by Bill Anderson that have all the information I needed to do as the title says: Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes. I have a moderate amount of old wooden planes, all varieties – bench, fillister, panel raising, etc., and of course profile moulding. I’ve read several good books by the industry leaders, like Michael Dunbar’s Restoring, Tuning & Using Classic Woodworking Tools, and many others, even books on how to make a p...

RIKON 10-351, 14” Professional Bandsaw

RIKON 10-351, 14” Professional Bandsaw

07-17-2015 08:30 PM by John Little | 12 comments »

I purchased this bandsaw to replace my 15+ year old Jet 14”, primarily to gain additional resaw capability and boy does this machine deliver. The 3 hp motor and 14” of resaw height gives me all the capability I could ever use. This is my first Rikon tool and I am impressed with everything about it so far. It is a beast weighing in at over 300 lbs (over 400 in shipping crate). It came well packed in a wooden crate and had no damage. Plan on several helpers to lift it off the pallet. I go...

Fantastic substitute for remote control dust collection

Fantastic substitute for remote control dust collection

07-17-2015 02:53 AM by Rayne | 10 comments »

This is my first review so hopefully this is decent. I have been looking for ways to remotely turn on my Dust Collector for a while now. After being snubbed a bit by PSI for their remote I went on a hunt for a new solution that wouldn’t cost me a ton of money and was less likely to fail. After hunting for a while, I ran across this little gem. It’s a wireless receptacle that can be turned on or off with a remote (only the bottom receptacle; top is always on). Since you’...

Lie-Nielsen No. 2 Bench Plane

View on YouTube I love to use my hand planes. For a while I’ve been wanting a smoothing plane that was smaller then my No. 4. I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Lie-Nielsen No. 2. This is my review of the plane after using it for a few weeks in my shop.

The best chisels you can buy at a grocery store

The best chisels you can buy at a grocery store

07-14-2015 03:02 PM by lumberjoe | 20 comments »

If you follow Paul Sellers blogs or videos at all, you’ve heard him mention that discount grocery store chain Aldi carries chisels from time to time – and in his opinion they are quite good. Unfortunately these have not been made available in North America. That is until a few months ago. Based on the fact Paul raves about these chisels many times over, there is an Aldi store less than 3 miles from my home, and the 4 piece set costs me $7.49 with tax, I decided to grab them. I ...
