Grngate Gates Work Great

Grngate Gates Work Great

04-10-2017 07:21 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Check out my video review on Youtube…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ic9A73Fb_Y Installing this Grngate starter system was amazingly simple. If you can plug in a phone, you can install this system. Of course you have to wire the system controller, but that’s nothing more than stripping a few wires, and screwing the wires to a terminal block. Actually I sacrificed a 240v extension cord so I could keep my dust collectors cord intact, and that was a good solution for me. Th...

Bench Dog Router setup - Inconsistent Quality

Bench Dog Router setup - Inconsistent Quality

04-09-2017 01:51 PM by EarlS | 10 comments »

It’s been a year since I ordered the Bench Dog Promax RT Cast Iron router table, Pro Fence, ProLift, and steel cabinet. Rather than review on each component I decided to review the entire set up since the Bench Dog sells it as a complete set up. The complete set up is $1000 on Rockler. First off – this thing is a beast. The table top weighs in at 100 lbs and the router lift with my 3-1/4 HP Porter Cable Router weighs 35 lbs or more. The cabinet weighs 40 lbs or more. D...

Impact Driver Technology - What is the REAL difference?

Impact Driver Technology - What is the REAL difference?

04-09-2017 02:56 AM by WoodWorkLIFE | 5 comments »

I have been using impact drivers for a while, but in the past two years, the technologies have exploded. Buying and impact driver is like buying a laptop now. Heck, Milwaukee makes one that links up with your phone with Bluetooth now. In this video review kind of thing, I look at RIDGIDs Gen 4x vs. 5x Brushed Technology, while also looking at newer Brushless technology in the form of a Makita offering compared to the brand new brushless hydraulic drivers, in this case, RIDGID’s hydra...

Mixed review after 1st month of use

Mixed review after 1st month of use

04-07-2017 07:14 PM by Elwyn24601 | 8 comments »

I will try and keep this somewhat short and as sweet as I can. the TL;DR will be at the bottom in the form of pro’s and cons. My background: I am a 25 year old chemist by day and recently a woodworker by night, I grew up doing stage-craft so I and wood have a long, on again off again, relationship (the off again parts due mostly do uncertain living conditions and lack of funds). The Search: I started looking at the ridgid r4512 as a starting point, so as any self respecting millen...

Campaign Furniture by Christopher Schwarz

Campaign Furniture by Christopher Schwarz

Campaign Furniture By Christopher Schwarz. Illustrated. 332 pp. Lost Art Press LLC. $35 Camping, hiking, cycling, and even business travel. Rooted within the mind of the traveler is the urge to explore, to strive forward, equipped not only to survive, but to thrive. For me long distance bicycle touring exemplifies this concept. Pushing out on a week-long camping trip, my saddlebags packed with clothing, lightweight tent, folding camp stove, cooking gear, rain gear, repair kit and instant S...

My delta 36 725

Just thought I’d share my Delta 36 725. New on site but the reviews on here are the reason I went with it. It was down to it and Rigid saw. Kept looking on CL with no luck either cheap saws or out of my budget. I read all the horror stories on both saws. Found this site and several good reviews and all tips on set up so I purchased it. Set up wasnt bad thanks to tips on here. Only real problem I have is finally got riving knife acceptable and just gave up. I need the saw to be mobil but...

Works for me.

Works for me.

Recently got this sander from Grizzly, I realize that it is a sander that has various brand names attached to it so shop around and get your best deal. Prior to this I was using my drill press with different sized drums, there is no comparison between the two. Like anything you can spend as much or as little as you wish. This model more than meets my needs. I built a stand on wheels to move it around on and put a large drawer to hold all my sanding drums etc. etc. The sander came with 80 Grit...

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

03-26-2017 02:25 PM by Tennessee | 6 comments »

I have had numerous respirators over the years, with various cartridges, and a couple things have always bothered me about most.First, many of them don’t allow me to wear glasses properly, since the nose piece sticks up too high, causing my glasses to sit wrong and make my eyesight off.Second, those doggone elastic straps always, always get stretched out and hard, and now that most have gone to the cheap plastic hooks, the problem is worse. Sealing with these stretched out is almost imp...
