It's about value: lots of little things included, PC compatibility

If you compare this router set to others, you might say that it’s only slightly less expensive for the same power… and you’d be right—UNTIL you look at the included accessories. This router includes a clear base (which you’ll want), a centering jig (which allows you to align the bit perfectly—a must for dovetailing), two chucks, and dust collection ports. This accessories will cost you quite a bit if you add them after market to another brand. So… ...

Exaktor EXOA-2 Table Saw Overarm Dust Collector

Exaktor EXOA-2 Table Saw Overarm Dust Collector

02-04-2010 12:41 AM by Padre | 14 comments »

Finally ordered this and it came today. Here are my observations after putting it together. 1. The package came and was adequately packaged. The outside of the box was damaged, but all the interior items were fine. 2. All the parts were present and accounted for. 3. The directions stink. It gives you some pictures, but mostly you use a trial and error method of putting this together. It took me about 3 hours to put this together, a project that now that I know what to do shou...

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

02-03-2010 06:15 AM by wannabe | 13 comments »

Hi all, Since I’ve read so much good advice, I thought I’d contribute a little myself. I’ve had the C10FSH for a couple of years now and have to say it is hands down a fantastic saw. It’s a dual bevel 10 inch slider that I bought so I could cut some boards to lay under a shed. I’ve also used it for some fine trim work and hope to use it for some furniture building. It is dead-on accurate and doesn’t need to be readjusted unless you change the blade. ...

Also what has just broke...

milescraft feather board

milescraft feather board

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft fetherboard. Most people make their own feather boards but I use this feather board from milescraft and it works pretty good. The problem with the feather boards that people make is that its really hard to adjust them to different tools. This feather board is adjustable to 2 different size miter slots. You can adjust the feather board to work on most cuts. You can use this feather board on a router table, tablesaw, and a bandsaw.

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

02-02-2010 05:41 PM by PetVet | 17 comments »

You can purchase this product from Incra for about $35. I was interested in getting a splitter that I would use, as my rip guard/splitter was a pain to install every time I wanted to rip something.It comes as a kit, with an installation jig, and several splitters of various widths. The instruction sheet was fairly easy to follow. You need a couple pieces of 1/2 inch stock, one for the jig to attach to, and one as a test piece. They have you drill the holes in your saw insert with the prov...

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

02-01-2010 11:09 PM by CharlieD | 11 comments »

Woodcraft has this combination on sale at a good price. I have assembled everything but have yet to use the router. I did turn it on and was impressed with the soft start feature. The plunge mechanism is smooth and works well. So far I’m impressed with the workmanship of the table and fence (nice and heavy) and everything fit together well. The installation instructions could easily be improved but I got through it without too much angst. However, I was missing parts. The flat...

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

02-01-2010 09:09 PM by mnorusis | 5 comments »

I needed to drill shelf pin holes for my closet remodel project. To save time I decided to purchase the woodhaven shelf pin jig and a self-centering shelf pin bit. At the local woodcraft, the only 1/4” option was this Snappy bit. It got the job done, but was a bit of a pain. The first side I drilled went rather smoothly, and I ran down the two lines in decent time. However, when I got to the second side of the shelf unit, the shavings kept getting clogged in the retracting self-...

Good for short term use. Lousy materials.

Good for short term use. Lousy materials.

My Grizzly H7827 Drill Press Table is a little over a year old now, and it is useless. Well not exactly…There ARE some useful parts on it, knobs, thread inserts, T track and suck, but the main material, the melamine coated, well I guess it is supposed to be MDF, but this stuff seems more like compressed cardboard than MDF… The thread inserts that hold it down to the cast iron DP table simply fall out of the pressboard given any longish term exposure to humid environments, like,...

26" Of Awesome

It’s big, it’s heavy, but it is possible to move it. Just don’t try taking it out of your truck and pulling it into your shop like I did. It’s very dangerous!I had to take off my door to fit into my shop lol. Good times!Anyway, so it weighs a lot and it’s big so your going to need casters to put it on if you want to move it at all. This sander is very powerful with it’s 5hp motor. I can take off quite a bit of material in one pass using 80 and 120 grit...
