Make the Ferrari of shooting boards

Make the Ferrari of shooting boards

10-29-2018 10:22 PM by ColonelTravis | 14 comments »

I’ve been using a totally handmade shooting board that’s worked fine (although it didn’t work great for 45s but that was my fault.) In the near future, I have some things to make that require odd angles, and I didn’t know off hand how I was going to do that, plus my 45s were not coming out right without constant adjustments, so when I saw this fence for the first time I said – screw it, I’m buying this thing. The fence has only been available for a few m...

Drum Sander

Drum Sander

10-25-2018 12:52 PM by Jarrhead | 5 comments »

Been wanting to add a drum sander to the shop for many years. Shopped hard for a decent used one on craigslist. There were some options out there in the used market, but they were either too big for my needs, or too expensive for their condition. I finally got prodded to take action by a project I started that involved some spalted wood. I found some gorgeous spalted tamarind for the carcase of a jewelry box I am making. Unfortunately, because of the spunky nature of the spalted wood, no...

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

10-23-2018 04:39 PM by EarlS | 8 comments »

I bought several sheets of FastCap Kaizen foam to use to organize my tool drawers after seeing pictures of it on Rockler’s website. I really like the way that I’m able to keep all of the tools displayed and organized so I know where they belong when I clean up the shop. I give it 4 stars rather than 5 because of the lack of instructions on how to properly work with the foam. The pictures on label don’t qualify as instructions. Rockler’s price and free shipping ma...

Could be Better

Could be Better

10-22-2018 03:46 PM by HankLP | 6 comments »

I really like the Grizzly G0771 table saw, and have used it for several years now. I was pleased to discover that Grizzly came out with an insert for the G0771, however, this rating lost two stars for the following: 1) The insert sits 0.020” higher than the original insert which means the leveling screws have to be readjusted when swapping the inserts. The ZC Inserts I make have oversized holes that fit over the screw heads. This allows a thicker edge on the insert, and the leveling...

Grizzy G1021x2 15" Helical Planer - Initial impressions review

Grizzy G1021x2 15" Helical Planer - Initial impressions review

10-22-2018 12:53 PM by edapp | 5 comments »

This is another one of those “I just got the tool” reviews, but there is so little information out there about this planer I thought this might be helpful to some… Grizzly offers a few 15” planers, and more than one with helical cutterheads. I chose this one because it wasnt made in China (no tariff fee) and because the cutterheads are curved and set at a 30 degree angle. their other option, G0453, is made in china and uses straight inserts that are parallel to the ...

Meterk, NeJe, etc. 1500mW Laser Engraver

Meterk, NeJe, etc. 1500mW Laser Engraver

10-17-2018 07:00 PM by Andybb | 6 comments »

I grabbed this machine off of Amazon using a $100 gift card that I had. I also did a little research on these. They are inexpensive because they are made using the stripped down laser and transport systems built into a gazillion blu-ray and cd burners with virtually no modification other than the circuit board. They are basically all the same, so Neje, Meterek, Qiilo, Sixdu, Decaker…etc. same guts. This one came with software that says Neje on it, so it’s generic. Here is a v...

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

10-17-2018 03:15 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Here you will see a 32 degree angled mobile stand to help with cross cutting large panels.Just kidding :) Just me wiggling it into place.For longest time, I used a mini pallet jack and DIY stands for my Powermatic 66 and Unisaw. With the PM66 off to a better home, only the Unisaw remains with me. I never liked the saw being raised 4-5” higher due to the DIY stand but put up with it, til now. With upcoming outfeed assembly table, I wanted the saw as low as possible. Way too many ric...

vonHanke Branding Iron

10-15-2018 03:02 PM by CL810 | 7 comments »

I had been thinking about purchasing a branding iron when I stumbled on a thread about electric vs non-electric branding irons. I was quite surprised to see the last post from Martin vonHanke offering a branding iron to the first responder willing to write a review. After visiting his website I decided to take him up on his offer. Martin was quick to mention that I should write an honest review; if there was anything I didn’t like to report it. And I will, though it is minor. S...

A Lot of Issues

A Lot of Issues

10-08-2018 02:56 PM by WoodyS4S | 21 comments »

We recently acquired a new Oneida 5HP Dust Gorilla Pro with Smart Boost. After watching an episode of “The Wood Whisperer” on youtube and doing some research we decided to order one. BTW no one is paying us to write this review, we have no endorsements. Everything arrived on a crate and it was mostly well packaged, the large HEPA filter had a little damage to one of the gaskets but nothing major. The first issue were the instructions, or lack thereof. The only instructions...
