Quality and Savings on Four Inch Flex Hose

Quality and Savings on Four Inch Flex Hose

02-09-2016 07:30 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

This isn’t as heavy duty as the tubing I’ve been using for the past few years, which well tolerates being drug around my shop for vacuuming operations, or switching between machines. That said,this is about 1/3 the price and the fifty foot length allows me to cut sections to dedicate to each piece of equipment. The hose came nicely packaged in a square tube about four feet long. I have two collectors – a 1-1/2 horse and a 3 horse Jet. I have had no problems using se...

It's Super for a Reason

It's Super for a Reason

02-09-2016 07:23 PM by Kelly | 0 comments »

My purchase of the Super Dust Deputy was inspired by the results of using my [metal version] Dust Deputy and Dust Gorilla. I’m running a Jet four bagger (3 HP dust collector with after market one micron bags) and use it, instead of a vacuum, to clean my shop floor, and around equipment. Screws, nails, nuts, bolts, pieces of wood and even an occasional tool get picked up in the course of cleaning. Normally, everything is drawn through the impeller blades. When chips and other large...

Making Good Box Joints Easily and Repeatable

Making Good Box Joints Easily and Repeatable

02-09-2016 07:16 PM by Kelly | 1 comment »

I’ve been woodworking, both professionally and as a hobbyist, since 1974. Over those years, my appreciation of the value of jigs has continued to increase. For example, using a circle cutting jig on my band saw allowed me to cut precision circles ranging from a couple inches to three feet in diameter. Box joints, or finger joints, make for strong joints and can add aesthetic value to a project. Laying out multiple box joints, individually cutting them and getting good, tight joints t...

Somewhere Between [or at] "Remarkable" and "Uh"

Somewhere Between [or at] "Remarkable" and "Uh"

02-09-2016 07:10 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

Like others, I’m not certain what you can say about something like this, so I’ll mention what I do know: -It has no holes in it, except on the ends, so doesn’t leak air, other than where it should.-It’s smooth on both ends, so I can fit it inside of black sewer pipe I’ve cut into couplers, or into flex hose.-It bends air, which, I believe, most straight pipes can’t do.-It doesn’t glare under intense shop lighting.-It’s ends are not over-sized...

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

02-09-2016 07:02 PM by Kelly | 3 comments »

This shouldn’t be a review of a piece of exercise equipment, its very nature, during use, requires me to treat it as such, in order to get across its behavior characteristics in the shop. I have several four inch flex hoses in my shop. Only this one returns to its original, retracted form. It is probable this will be the only one my shop will ever see, even if it fails and has to be replaced. PRO: Because it retracts to its original length, I don’t have to cut it for runs, t...

Bending Wood [or Off Lable Use of the Wagner Wall Paper Steamer]

Bending Wood [or Off Lable Use of the Wagner Wall Paper Steamer]

02-09-2016 06:50 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

Though sold as a wall paper steamer, I bought this to bend wood, as a cheaper alternative to the ones sold by Rocker for bending wood, but which cost twice as much. First off, I was not, in any way, disappointed with my small investment. I built a plywood box about five feet long and four equal sides about ten inches square. On a whim, and before assembling the sides, I covered the interior sides with tin foil. Once the tube was assembled, I added a permanent back. The front cover...

Good alternative to the Festool TS55 REQ

Good alternative to the Festool TS55 REQ

02-09-2016 01:36 PM by TechTeacher04 | 4 comments »

I was asked if I would be interested in building sets for my districts Senior High Musical. The build required breaking down numerous sheets of 1/2 and 1/4” ply. Working alone with a small job saw would be extremely dangerous when cutting the 1/4” luan that is used to skin most of the pieces. A track saw became the safest option for breaking down the sheets accurately and quickly. I had narrowed my search to the Dewalt DWS520K, Festool 55 REQ and Makita SP6000K. The compatibility ...

Best tool money I've spent in a long time

Best tool money I've spent in a long time

02-06-2016 03:56 PM by Dan Morgan | 13 comments »

I will add my .02 and second the love for this air compressor. I’ve had several Porter Cable pancake compressors, mostly a special included with a nail gun purchase from the big box store. Like everyone else this has produced a love/hate relationship. Love the light weight and portability but hate the racket. Since we purchased the house were in I’ve been working on setting up shop in the garage and I was thrilled when my boss let me buy a big Porter Cable air compressor tha...

Grizzly G0771 Table Saw Review

Grizzly G0771 Table Saw Review

02-05-2016 04:22 PM by Kristian_S | 9 comments »

Thanks to everyone for their advice regarding my table saw choice. Now that I have it set up, I thought I’d share my observations and experience with it, hopefully this will help someone in their choice. Delivery was reasonably quick (to CA), I purchased liftgate service and they brought the pallet into my garage for me. I feel sorry for whoever was receiving the pallet of Apple desktops I saw in the truck, a tall heavy package had toppled over and pierced about three of the boxes… SE...

Impressed, good value so far

Impressed, good value so far

02-05-2016 08:28 AM by momalle3 | 5 comments »

I had for years been using an old Delta 12 inch saw that I got on Craigslist. It was wearing out in multiple ways all at once and all the problems were hard to fix since it’s long discontinued, plus it only has a 6 inch resaw capacity and for most of what i do eight would be about right. I did a lot of research, including reviews here, and settled on the Craftsman BAS 350 which is the same as the Rikon 10-321, only @200 bucks cheaper. I was thinking about the Rikon 10-325, but itR...
