4 years of Shop Notes.

12-14-2010 04:56 PM by Ken90712 | 16 comments »

I suspect I’m like most LJ’s on here and love to read anything about woodworking. Blondie recently had asked my what I would like for my Birthday, not really needing anything I said these books would be great. I have been receiving the magazine for just over a year now. This is 4 years worth of magazine’s binded in separate one year hardcovers, @ $89.50 http://www.shopnotes.com/ I love this subscription, great pics and projects with plans. Very little advertising, w...

Almost gave it one star

Almost gave it one star

12-13-2010 06:14 PM by Pdub | 13 comments »

I ordered this set back in August when Rockler had a sale goin on. I didn’t get to use it until late September. The first three bowls went good, but on bowl number four the bearing seized up and left a deep burn mark in my bowl. I was furious to say the least. It was Sunday night so I had time to cool off before calling Rockler to complain. The nice lady at Rockler said she would contact CMT and have then send me a new one. When I told her that I needed it to finish bowls for a cr...

This seperator works great and cost less than $40 if you have scrap MDF/ Laminate laying around. See video of it in action on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZSK88Hjl3A I wrote up a complete step by step process for building this seperator if anyone is interested http://www.jpthien.com/smf/index.php?topic=429.msg2187#msg2187

Solid router but obsolete design

Solid router but obsolete design

12-13-2010 03:50 AM by Chelios | 16 comments »

I got this router, guide and dovetail jig because I wanted to make a small chest of drawers and thought this would be the way to go. I have used the router several times after that but I wasn’t really liking the clean up after the job was done. Dust collection is not part of the design. PC relies on an obsolete design and this is the main reason for giving it 2 stars. The positive- The tool looks like it is never going to brake and it certainly runs that way, the base has a nice...

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

12-13-2010 03:17 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I ordered the Dust Collecting Blade Cover (DCBC) sold by Bob Ross from The BORK Store. I think this is a fairly new product from Bob as he literally designed it to my specifications. His original design called for a 2-1/4” hose but that size of hose is hard to connect to a fixed dust collector. I asked him if he could make it to fit 2-1/2” hose and that I was planning on mounting it to 2” sch40 PVC pipe. One other thing that Bob did for me was to make the arms a little l...

I bought this ROS mainly on the strengths of its dust collection. A number of reviews that I’ve read consistently rated its dust capture better than other ROS (except of course the mighty Festool). After a couple of hours of use, I’m pretty happy with it so far…Pros:great dust captureminimal vibrationcomfortable to useCons:slow material removal1” DC port (would it have killed them to make the port 1 1/4” so as to fit a standard shop vac attachment???)

Great Honing Guide

Great Honing Guide

12-12-2010 05:37 PM by cut3times | 3 comments »

This is from the hand written notes of Richard: The blade is clamped onto and makes contact with the underside of the two stainless steel location rods, these being the primary location datum. How far the cutting edge projects determines the honing angle. For example clamp up at 5/8” (16mm) and the blade will make an angle of 25 degrees to the sharpening surface. Measurement is taken from the side of the stainless steel rod to the cutting edge. A strip of wood with an accurate shoulder cou...

Glad I picked this Drill Press

Glad I picked this Drill Press

12-10-2010 03:23 AM by tjackele | 14 comments »

Anyone thinking of buying this drill press, should really do it if you have the cash. I have already benefited from the 6” quill while making my workbench. The angles are good, although I have only needed side to side angles, compound has not come up for me. While it really should come with a fence, I had a router fence that I used and Rockler hold downs that fit perfectly in the slots provided in the table, same slots work great for the fence. When I need to take off the hold-dow...

General Machine - 75-050T M1 - Tilting Bench top Mortiser

12-09-2010 12:58 AM by Gator | 4 comments »

Picked this up today at Federated Tool in London, OntarioIt is the General Machine 75-050T1 – Tilting head mortiser. I brought it home and unpacked it. There was a small amount of oil, not pounds of grease to deal with. I had the entire unit wiped down in less than 10 minutes. There were no parts missing, and it was 80% assembled in the box. Instructions were not too bad, there was not much to do. The fence is dead straight and required no shimming. The unit came with 4 chisels, 1/4&...

Now you guys and gals know me, I am a bang for the buck kind of guy, and in order to separate my cheap fingers from those bucks, your product or service better offer some real tangible additional bang… Enter the OneWay Manufacturing Wolverine jig. I initially got this because I had no idea that PSI had a cheaper clone, and after a couple of frustrating plywood copies later, I opted for the steel of the Wolverine to avoid the flexing that was messing up my angles. To call the Wolve...
