Oneida Super Dust Gorilla - 5 HP

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla - 5 HP

07-29-2016 02:42 AM by Redoak49 | 6 comments »

Several months ago, I purchased a new dust collector. Before, I had a Jet 1.5 HP dust collector with a cartridge filter and vortex cone. It did an OK job and was piped into my shop with 4” PVC. My measurements of the flow at the dust collector were 670 CFM at the 6” port and only 450 CFM at the 4” port. The maximum static pressure was 10.25” Inside my shop, the flow was greatly reduced. I decided that I needed something bigger to collect more of the dust and so looked at a number of t...

Ok. So, for the past few months I’ve been looking for an upgrade from my Bose Ipod sounddock. Not that I’m crapping on Bose. I love it! But it’s not suitable for a shop environment. So, after tossing around tons of ideas and products, I decided to take the plunge and get the DEWALT DWST08810 ToughSystem Music Player with Charger. Needless to say that I’m very happy with it. Now, please keep in mind that even though this is a job site radio, this will NOT leave itR...

Dremel 1830-01 Scroll Station

Dremel 1830-01 Scroll Station

07-24-2016 03:47 AM by Jer357 | 0 comments »

I have one of these and I really like it. I had a problem with vibration but I solved that by mounting it on a 5/8 thick piece of plywood and then bolting down on a stand made for this scroll saw. I have only one complaint with this scroll saw and every other brand I have ever owned and that is lubricating the bearings. I wish there was a simpler way to do this. Manual says lay it on its side and oil the bearings let soak 24 hrs. flip it over and do the same on the other side. Other than that...

Narex 20mm (3/4") skew chisels

Narex 20mm (3/4") skew chisels

07-23-2016 05:20 PM by PPK | 4 comments »

I bought this set of chisels from Highland Woodworking and have been using them non-stop ever since. They are the darn handiest thing when scraping glue out of drawer boxes or anywhere that it’s hard to get a regular chisel in a good position. As far as the quality goes, they are made out of good steel, have good machining, come sharp, and have held an edge well. The handles are good beech? handles, and could resist being beat on with a mallet, although I almost always use these for ...

The picture posted by Ty is almost exactly the way I have my system set up. I have the exhaust connected to a standard 4” dryer vent and due to the Super Dust Deputy, I would say the dryer puts out more lint than my dust collector puts out saw dust. These are fantastic! I’ve seen many set ups, but using a short piece of 4” hose to connect the SDD to the trash can is the way to go for ease of can removal. I’ve seen guys (and gals) come up with all kinds of methods t...

I tried one 1/2” chisel to see what the brand was all about. Now I have a 5 pc set with 2 skews and a fishtail. And a few planes as well. they take an edge and hold it well. I have no complaints about the tool or the price

Veritas skew rabbet block plane

Veritas skew rabbet block plane

I wanted a skew rabbet plane for crossgrain rabbets and cleaning up tenon cheeks. This one fit the bill. It takes a lot of fettling at first but once it’s set it so easy to sharpen and get back to work. I’d definitely recommend it

After watching this video https://youtu.be/56DpxEOpxz0 I decided to get a no2 to use as a block plane to help control tearout issues I was having my block and to use on smaller pieces. Haven’t had it long but it’s everything I wanted.

I needed a crosscut saw and wanted it with very specific specs and Bob was more than happy to make whatever I wanted. So I sent him a chunk of walnut for the handle and he went to work. 14” brass backed crosscut sash saw at 12 ppi courtesy of Bob Summerfield at RMSaws.com It works as good as it looks and I plan on getting another with the same specs but in a rip pattern.

Lie-Nielsen no 4 1/2 with 55 degree frog

My first LN plane I bought it with a 55 degree frog to work heavily figured and prone to tear out. It’s been a dream. Works just as good on straight grained wood as well.
