JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

11-14-2014 04:28 AM by groland | 11 comments »

I may be the only person nutty enough to think this might be of interest to anyone, but if you are contemplating purchase of one of these units, this may be of interest to you. I purchased this unit from Global Industrial on Nov. 6, 2014. The price was $699.99 to which was added $35.00 for residential delivery, totaling $734.99. Unless you have a loading dock, I recommend the residential delivery service because everything is shipped shrink-wrapped on a palette. My delivery was made by Estes....

The perfect saw for my needs and space

The perfect saw for my needs and space

11-13-2014 09:17 PM by ajw1978 | 14 comments »

_First things first, my star rating reflects the saw’s use and value to me and my needs. So may be higher for me than it would be for you, and that’s perfectly fine. Also, the review is also coming from somebody still new to the hobby so may lack the technical details found in other reviews. You can get specs and more information at the Craftsman website The “centerpiece” to my tool collection and budding attempt at a workshop comes after a long and frustrating two ...

got this several months ago and put it on my planer really haven’t planed enough to a thickness to use this mostly have been just to get a smooth surface but here of late i have had to do a lot of cherry thur the planer to a 3/4 thickness and this little digital read out sure made it a lot easier to read and stayed accurate thru all the boards planed to thickness .my old eyes ain’t what they use to be and it saved me a lot of bending down to read the gauge that came on the pl...

So I’ve had/been using this apron since April of this year (happy Birthday to me!) and I have to say Marc S. did a great job designing it! I love the ruggedness of the canvas, the huge pockets, and the fact there are two pencil holder pockets. The crossed straps and the extra clip strap in the back does help it hug no matter what size you are and not catch anything. I track in less sawdust now than before – always a bonus! My only feedback would be to put a loop or two on it som...

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...

Real smooth and Bright Finish

Real smooth and Bright Finish

I have been using the combination of these two products for the last few months. I gave both a 5 star rating as they have not failed since I started using them.I put 2 coats of the sealant, then I sand it with 400 grit sandpaper to smooth it. I then put 3 light coats of the lacquer and then I sand it again with 400 grit.I am picky about the finish I put on my projects, but I know from experience that shine sells!I then apply 12 more coats of the lacquer, I know that sounds like a lot but putt...

Terrible leveling, poor abrasion resistance

Terrible leveling, poor abrasion resistance

11-09-2014 02:07 AM by Scott C. | 4 comments »

I’ve waited to review this stuff as a I wanted to try it out for a while before making my mind up about it. I bought a couple of gallons to finish some kitchen drawers and had a good amount leftover which I used on a couple of furniture projects and a jewelry box. My main gripes are it’s leveling properties and abrasion resistance suck, both with spraying and foam brush. I can’t get a smooth finish with runs, drips and brush marks. It scratches really easily, after a month o...
