Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

I haven’t seen a formal review for these guys on here, so I figured I’d go ahead and document my experience with these guys. I’ve placed 4 orders with them in the past year for a variety of screws, some tabletop fasteners, and most recently some 26” KV-brand heavy-duty drawer slides. Each time I ordered, I received a shipping notice 1-2 business days (or even on the day I ordered), and received my order within 5 business days. Everything was accurately counted, ba...

Disappointed

Disappointed

I had to replace my 15 plus years old Delta disc/belt sander and opted for the “priced right” Skil. The minute I unpacked it I could tell that the quality I was used to was not there. The body is plastic and I have had a heck of a time trying to keep the belt running straight. While running it sounds like it is going to fall apart. I will say that Skil is willing to send me a shipping label and repair the unit, but for the time and hassle of finding a strong box, taking it to ...

Damstom makes it easier

Damstom makes it easier

03-23-2016 12:04 PM by Tetedebois | 6 comments »

Hi everyone, I got myself a four pack of these couple weeks ago and these really make the panel gluing process easier and faster. Damstom clamps are well designed and works well. With the clamping pressure, there is no need to lock the rear caul part of it. Just push firmly on it as you clamp. As you know, the most important part of a panel gluing is the wood prep and no clamps will do it for you but if you want to make the process easier and faster, these clamps may be for you. Take a loo...

I must say this measuring device is expensive, but well worth it. Works exactly as advertised. Straight out of the box, measured the inside of a box for the bottom rabbet. Transferred the measured rods to the table saw and cut my stock. It fit perfectly, not even an ants hair of a gap. I am sure I will make a box for it, to keep it all together….lol. If you are looking at purchasing, rest assured this is a quality tool that will last a very long time functioning exactly the w...

Penn State 2 HP dust collector review

Penn State 2 HP dust collector review

03-17-2016 03:06 PM by PPK | 7 comments »

I noticed that there don’t seem to be any reviews about Penn State dust collectors on here, and being as I bought one over Christmas time 2015, here’s my review. 1) This machine is pretty high value for the price, in my opinion. I paid ~ $270, and another $70? for shipping. I just looked today, and it seems to be selling for $230 right now, but is out of stock. See item 5e below for more on that!It is also made overseas, but what machine isn’t anymore? 2) The feature t...

Great for Hardwood Joinery

Great for Hardwood Joinery

This is a review of the 8” Infinity Dadonator stacked dado set. I have a low-end Freud dado set that actually worked quite well until I had it sharpened. Nevertheless, the one complaint I had about my old set (two-wing chippers) is that it would chip out the side shoulders when cutting tenons. That is what made me look for another set. The Dadonator excels at cutting tenons, rabbets, and half laps in hardwood. My test pieces were mostly white oak, a hardwood notorious for chipout...

Customer Service Matter Resolved

Customer Service Matter Resolved

03-14-2016 09:15 PM by Wildwoods | 13 comments »

I am a small cabinet shop. I have bought many parts from ereplacementparts over many years. I recently ordered a part for my sander that cracked somehow, a shroud that directed the dust into the bag. I looked at the schematic and with the descriptions, I determined that the part, described as a dust collection support seemed to be the right part. Upon arrival, I saw the it was not the right part and so disassembled the sander further and found that what I was looking for was described as a br...

Rigid R2601 Random Orbital Sander

Rigid R2601 Random Orbital Sander

03-12-2016 07:47 PM by JetDriver | 3 comments »

I received my Rigid Orbital sander for Christmas this year and since then have had a chance to put it to good use on several projects. It’s my first Orbital Sander so I can’t compare it to other models based on personal experience but my choice was based on internet research that showed it to be among the best on the market at this time. Overall I would say it has fulfilled my expectations and I think my old Craftsmen palm sander is likely to start collecting a lot of dust in the future. T...

This is a review of the LU86 thin kerf 40 tooth general purpose blade. I have been using this blade for all rips and crosscuts, and I must say I’m quite impressed. For ripping I was mentally comparing it to my Freud 24 tooth dedicated ripping blade. It seemed to rip 13/16” stock just as effortlessly as the 24 tooth ripper, but with a cleaner edge. There was no chipout at all with the use of a ZCI. My ripper often chips out the underside of hardwood cuts. I also look for a ...

Harbor Freight 14" x 40" Wood Lathe: Best for the Small Shop?

Harbor Freight 14" x 40" Wood Lathe: Best for the Small Shop?

03-11-2016 04:15 PM by ThomasLightle | 6 comments »

As always comments are welcome and encouraged. I have been looking into buying a lathe for some time now. I mainly need it to turn some simple dowels, but I would like to pick up the skill of turning beautiful pieces as well.The Harbor Freight 14” x 40” wood lather is mostly written off by critics mainly because it is an entry-level tool by Harbor Freight. I use this video to highlight why I think it is perfect for my shop and my needs at this moment. Here are a list of some...
