Nice product, with a few gripes

Nice product, with a few gripes

11-02-2010 10:57 PM by Vrtigo1 | 8 comments »

Ordered this from Amazon.com about three months ago. The lift is impressive upon first inspection. The heft and quality of the fit and finish gives you the impression that it’s well built. This was replacing a regular JessEm router plate, so it was brain-dead easy to install – just remove the old plate, install the lift and then level it. This is where I ran into issues with the first lift. There are threaded through holes all the way around the plate, and you thread the supp...

Big Step Up in HVLP

Big Step Up in HVLP

I was, up to this point using a Lemmer A-710S bleeder that came with the T-55Q Two-Stage turbine. It did a great job with most basic finishing and I never really had noticed any need to improve the equipment. The problems that did exist where generally in terms of cleaning, because it was a standard bottom-feeding type of gun with a 1 quart capacity which was a too big for most jobs. The realization came that a more mobile, gravity fed gun would be preferable as well a search for one tha...

So far....What a Disappointment.

So far....What a Disappointment.

About near two decades ago, I purchased a Dowel-it 1000 which I’ve used almost on every other project.It was made in USA and 100% accurate. And it’s held up to a half a dozen drops and what have you with just slight calibration after all these years. Awesome jig. Behold the new so called USA made dowel-it 2100. it has a 6 inch capacity and Two removable bushing screws with 1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8” sizes two each. and the 7/16 and 1/2 are permanent. I purchased this for a pro...

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

10-30-2010 08:59 PM by glassyeyes | 7 comments »

This is a VERY PRELIMINARY rating, since I only acquired this in the past few weeks. I couldn’t decide between 4 stars and 5, for the minor reasons noted below. I can’t speak to longevity, obviously. After a serious round of allergies, I thought I’d better do something about the dust in my shop. I chose this air filter in part based on various reviews on several sites, including Lumberjocks, and on advice from the staff at Woodcraft in Leesburg, VA. Another factor was t...

Why pay more?

Why pay more?

I bought a new (used) craftsman belt drive table saw about a month ago and was amazed at the vibration. So, following the lead of all the LJ’s who love their link belts, I thought I’d give it a try. In comparing prices, I found two price points:- Harbor freight at $4 per foot, and- Everyone else at $8 per foot. Yankee that I am, guess which price point I chose? I adjusted the length and installed the belt in under 30 minutes last night (Note: I sized the belt to match th...

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

10-29-2010 12:23 AM by Woodwrecker | 4 comments »

I wanted a set of carving gouges , but I couldn’t afford to spend an arm and a leg.I was pretty surprised when these arrived and turned out to be nicer then I thought they would be.Given the price of around $11.00 a gouge, these are nice.They range from 1/4” to 1” and were sharp enough to use right out of the box, but I’ll hone them up real good and give a report a little down the road on how they work out.I gave four stars based on my initial impression, but we’...

Not What I Expected

Not What I Expected

10-27-2010 04:33 AM by TedAGTG | 37 comments »

I purchased this saw new at Lowe’s and was initially happy with the performance. The first saw had much lower vibration than my previous one. The table tilts 45 degrees left or right and has positive stops at the most popular angles. The blade clamps were not easy to work with and blade slippage (and consequently blade tension) was frustrating. I was doing some fairly intricate fretwork with hundreds of inside cuts requiring blade clamping and unclamping every 45 seconds to a minute for...

Solid router, good value with lots of nice features

Solid router, good value with lots of nice features

Picked one of these guys up secondhand on Craigslist and am glad I did. This is my fourth router coming after a Hitachi M12V, PC 7518 and a cheapo Craftsman. Of these, this is my go-to router. It has enough power to do everything I’ve ever asked of it, and when using it I get the feel that it was well designed and built. It’s not too heavy, which helps a lot if you’re going to be using a router for an extended period of time. It has an extra long cord which has a power ...
