Mitre slot measuring tool for $12

Mitre slot measuring tool for $12

02-11-2017 09:10 PM by Holbs | 3 comments »

I was in dire need of fine measurement adjustment in my shop: checking dado stack, fence, auxiliary fence, etc. I could of made my own but I’ve been in a rush lately and ordered this little gem from Amazon at $12. Caution: you need your own dial caliper. Also, it does not fit all mitre slots! Read the description.I was all about to purchase another table saw alignment gadget that costs $120 but then saw this tool in the LJ review forum and gave it a shot. Have used it a number of ...

Useless with Triton TRA-001

Useless with Triton TRA-001

02-07-2017 06:21 PM by eldercop | 17 comments »

For $60 one would think Rockler would include all the necessary holes. Not so. Catalog, web site and sales person identify this aluminum plate (#59466) as suitable for Triton’s big bad boy. Get it home and there’s no hole for height winder. A call back to the store where the helpful guy opened two other boxes with same item and same story. He kicks the issue up to the assistant manager whom I call back a couple days later and he is less than helpful. “So drill a hole for it ...

Harbor Freight 10" Sliding Compound Miter

Harbor Freight 10" Sliding Compound Miter

02-06-2017 07:32 PM by raydawg | 20 comments »

Got it on sale for 89.99 instead of $109.It came out of the box and worked great. Had to put my own blade in it but I was aware of that and had extra. Plus it being a 10” saw I can exchange blades between my table saw and this if I really need to. Other than not cutting a 90 degree cut it’s a great saw. I had to turn the saw a degree to the left to make it square. So at 89 degrees NOT locked in to the zero detent, it cuts square up and down as well as side to side. The motor is strong, ...

Awesome blade

Awesome blade

02-05-2017 03:34 PM by Dedvw | 7 comments »

Once I discovered that the stock blade that came with my Delta Unisaw was the cause of my lousy cuts, I bought the thin kerf riving knife and the Irwin Marples 50T blade. This blade produces the nicest cuts I’ve seen and does it a little quieter than the stock blade. I’ve used all kinds of high end table saws (Powermatic, Delta, Jet), some with Forrest blades on them. I know it might sound crazy but this blade cuts as nice as any of the Forrest blades I’ve used. No burns, no...

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

02-05-2017 03:23 AM by cicerojoe | 7 comments »

This rapid fuse CA glue for wood is relatively new. Maybe a year since it was brought to market. I have seen the fast cap and hot stuff and other similar products which require the glue to be sprayed with an activator for instant cure. These look good but I never pulled the trigger, especially because I’d have to get them mailed to me. Anyway, I saw this Dap rapid fuse at home depot and a couple things caught my attention. 1st I remembered reading about this in a woodworking magazine...

A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

02-05-2017 12:44 AM by Matt | 12 comments »

This was purchased from a local Woodcraft with the help of SuperMax tools putting together a package (the SKU didn’t exist) with the closed stand instead of the open stand that comes with it by default. The sander goes together very easily, as does the stand and getting it tuned up is also very easy to do. My sander was off a little on the conveyor tracking, but that was easily fixed in about 5 minutes. The results that I’ve seen with it so far are nothing short of outstanding...

iVAC Automatic Blast Gate System

iVAC Automatic Blast Gate System

02-04-2017 06:34 PM by JerryinCreek | 1 comment »

I thought of adding an automatic blast gate system to my shop every time I forgot to open/close a gate. (I actually thought I’d stop doing that, but I didn’t.) Then I saw the review by pintodeluxe (aka, Willie) and I decided to do some more research and eventually purchased the system through Infinity. The technician at iVAC (Dave) was extremely knowledgeable and always courteously responded to my questions, from pre-purchase to set up. I started by mounting a piece of 3/4̶...

Infinity Shipping Issue

Infinity Shipping Issue

01-31-2017 07:09 PM by TomSanDiego | 38 comments »

I needed to replace the blades on my DeWalt 735 and my Powermatic 8 inch jointer. I did some research and most folks talked about the Infinity blades. So, I ordered them on December 31, 2016. They emailed back and said they would email me again when the blades shipped. Two weeks later, no email on the shipment. I emailed them and got no response. I called and got a machine. It took over three weeks to get my blades. In a day when vendors like Amazon get you items the next day, three w...

Irwin Max Speed Speed Bore bit

Irwin Max Speed Speed Bore bit

01-31-2017 03:33 AM by Mainiac Matt | 13 comments »

I borrowed one of these from a carpenter in our crate shop at work and was really impressed with how fast and clean it cut. So when I saw them at Ace Hardware I picked up a 3/4” one. Tonight I broke it out to drill some add’l holes in my bench. I like it a lot. It ate up the hard Maple like it was pine. Pros:1. Pilot grabs hold and pulls the bit right through the wood.2. The three cutting edges really cut fast. They are very sharp.3. Both the entry and the exit holes...
