Review of TS2000 full kerf 40-tooth blade

Review of TS2000 full kerf 40-tooth blade

07-14-2017 11:23 PM by oldbrowndog | 10 comments »

I recently upgraded the saw blade on my table saw to the 40-tooth TS2000 full kerf blade from Ridge Carbide. The paragraphs below share my detailed review of this blade, but the TL;DR version is that it’s an excellent blade particularly for box joints because it has 8 raker teeth. This was the deciding factor for me in purchasing the TS2000 over the Forrest WWII. I later found out that there is an ATBR version of the WWII, but it sells for almost double what I paid for the TS2000. It ...

At Last I have a Drum Sander

At Last I have a Drum Sander

07-07-2017 05:27 PM by jaxx | 3 comments »

Its been a long time since I posted a review however, my woodworking is still my passion. In order to make quality projects the need for accuracy increases , start with flat and square timber and you are nearly there especially at glue up time. So after months of thought and research I decided on the 3156 drum sander from Lombarte Spain. 560mm wide drum 132mm diameter 2hp motor c/w wheeled stand and table extensions For sure its Far East made and near exact to the Jet 2244 however n...

Good Foot Controls and Rolling Action

Good Foot Controls and Rolling Action

07-07-2017 05:10 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I have had many different brands and types of mobile bases, everything from a Sawstop ICS base (the best one made) to Delta / Rockler corner kits, to the HTC-2000, and Portamate. The Portamate-2500 construction impressed me with its reasonably sturdy steel frame and corner brackets. The steel is a heavy gauge, and does not feel flimsy. The foot levers are steel and plenty heavy to do the job. I think I can lift my bandsaw with one toe. I would describe the lifting and rolling actions a...

LED Shop Lights 4 PACK

LED Shop Lights 4 PACK

07-05-2017 04:20 PM by DDWW | 7 comments »

I just bought a 4 Pack of LED shop fixtures on amazon and installed them in my shop. They are 35watt with the output equivalent of 100w incandescent. The color temp is 5,000k. In short I like them a lot. The impression you get when you turn on the lights is damn its bright in here. There is a 2 second delay before the lights turn on. Its a little weird but compared to my fluorescents this was instantaneous, not really bothersome once you get use to it. The 4 fixtures were $119 tot...

Aerosol Spray Heads

Aerosol Spray Heads

07-02-2017 01:48 AM by RichTaylor | 4 comments »

Not the most exciting product to review, but if you’re unhappy with the spray pattern you’re getting from an aerosol spray can, these heads will make a difference. At only $0.45 apiece, they are a bargain. They also make good replacements for clogged heads. Note that they have male posts intended for female can tops. They perform as described. The fan heads put out a nice, even fan, and can be rotated for vertical or horizontal spray patterns. The fine spray head is really...

Onieda Air Systems Dust-Free Router hood

Onieda Air Systems Dust-Free Router hood

06-29-2017 02:07 PM by HassanMirza | 5 comments »

I acquired a Oneida Air Systems router hood, let me start of by saying that I am fan of the Cyclone, I have it on my modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector. I work in a smaller basement shop and as many of us know when flush trimming with the router makes a huge mess! I am in the middle of a project and I needed to do flush trim plywood. When I got the Router hood and I attached it to my Dewalt DW618, which was a very simple process. I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but hooked up a ...

Jet 1640 EVS - First Impressions

Jet 1640 EVS - First Impressions

06-24-2017 06:40 AM by WoodworkingVet | 6 comments »

When I started turning I bought a Rikon 70-220vsr midi lathe. Its a great lathe and served my needs quite well until I decided I wanted to go bigger. Two months ago I found a Jet 1642 for sale a few hours away and later that afternoon it followed me home. What a great lathe, but it lacked one feature that I was hoping to have in a new lathe. Because of some challenges that I have with my feet and back I find it difficult at times to stand at the lathe or to bend over the bed when hollowing. F...
