FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

08-12-2015 05:17 PM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

08-12-2015 12:27 PM by Nicky | 3 comments »

Just to put this review into perspective I’d like to say that I’ve used it to break down 5 sheets of plywood and trim two door. This is not a comprehensive review just some thoughts to share. My 32 year old skillsaw has finally given up. It spent many years cutting through 2x lumber and plywood/osb. For the past 5 years I was just using to break down plywood to more manageable pieces. I’ve really looked hard at the Festool but I have a difficult time justifying the cost. I’m a hobbyist. ...

20V MAX* Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit

20V MAX* Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit

08-10-2015 05:11 AM by dbray45 | 11 comments »

This was one of my wife’s impulse buys. I have stayed clear of battery powered drills, not because I haven’t had them, I have. I have one at work and I use it as much as I use a power drill at home (not drill press) – very little. Since I use it so rarely, I have to charge it before I can use it. I have 2 Milwaukee corded drills at home which I like a lot – One impact and the other is not. I was putting in a wall up on Saturday (covering an exposed cinder block ...

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

08-07-2015 01:39 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 0 comments »

I am a fan of Laguna tools. I called my salesman and it was delivered 7days later. Everything was clean, well painted, and it assembled OK. I was going to convert a HF 2hp, add a Dust Deputy and have to rig a system. Cost of Laguna shipped without the filter $825 vs. build your own $500 plus my time. This has been a good decision for me and I highly recommend this unit for a shop that doesn’t have an extra 220 service. This unit runs on a 20 amp 110service. The motor is made in Taiwan ...

RIDGID GEN5X Combo Kit, Up For Review + A Giveaway!

08-06-2015 06:50 AM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

Alright y’all, I’ve recently reviewed the GEN5X line of tools and I gotta say I’m nothing short of impressed with the features, quality, and power. So, like normal the GEN5X review is on my blog, but what’s awesome (and what everyone is probably more interested in) is that RIDGID is sponsoring a giveaway for the GEN5X Combo Kit. So if free tools sound good to you then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the review. If free tools don’t sound good then, well...

Excellent Customer Service

Excellent Customer Service

08-04-2015 08:15 AM by Julian | 5 comments »

I recently made another purchase for carbide cutters from Captain Eddie. Long story short; the post office lost my package/envelope from Capt. Eddie. I contacted him and he graciously said he would send out another shipment at no extra cost. I was not expecting him to do that. The postal service was the one to blame. I definitely will continue to purchase from Big Guy Productions.

Great Compressor, Lousy Packing Job, Yay Amazon

Great Compressor, Lousy Packing Job, Yay Amazon

08-03-2015 09:23 AM by jonah | 12 comments »

For those that have never experienced an ultra-quiet compressor, it’s really hard to overstate how much quieter they are than your average machine. The California Air Tools 2010A I have sounds like an average dishwasher from about 5-8 feet away. In other words, you know it’s on but it does not overwhelm you with noise. Other compressors I have used (Porter Cable pancake, Harbor Freight pancake & a larger HF wheeled model) are so insanely loud by comparison that I would neve...

Meets most of my intended purpose as a makeshift tail-vise, but hard to use effectively

Meets most of my intended purpose as a makeshift tail-vise, but hard to use effectively

08-02-2015 07:05 AM by paxorion | 2 comments »

When I set out to build my workbench, I knew its home would be in the basement right next to my wife’s fabric cutting table. The location made it hard to fit a tail vise without blocking the main walkway through the basement. Given that I was already pushing my wife’s forgiveness by setting my workbench in the basement, I knew I needed another option. I considered a variety of solutions, including the Veritas in-line vise, a Rocker Auto-Lock T-Track clamp (inspired by Dema's ...

Lie Nielson #51 plane

Lie Nielson #51 plane

08-01-2015 02:21 PM by MC | 4 comments »

Completed the new shooting board to go with my new plane from LN using the plans that came with the plane. As soon as the board was finished I started grabbing various pieces of scrap to try out the new plane. The 51 is heavy, the momentum helps move the plane with skewed blade through all types of wood with ease. Included in my testing today were pieces of Mahogany, Hard Maple, QSWO, and pine. Without any additional sharpening the plane cut through all wood end grain with ease. Should hav...

I discovered Lumberjocks while researching my new saw purchase, so I thought it only right to make my first post a review of my new saw. As you can see it is a Grizzly 1023RL. I have been using it for five weeks and am ready to give my opinion. Assembly was straight forward. The manual is very good with no confusing translations. The only hassle was getting the extension wings perfectly flat to the table. It probably would have been a little easier with some assistance, but I was work...
