Peachtree Drill Press Dust Collector

Peachtree Drill Press Dust Collector

11-21-2010 01:50 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

Does what it is supposed to do …you can adjust the hose to any position you like and it stays right where you put it. The box includes everything you need to install on a standard drill press … unless you have an 8”, 10”, and some models of 12” benchtop drill presses. I assume this attachment is intended for use on floor models, but you can using it on benchtop models is a buit of a challenge. I considered returning it, but this was a deeply discounted deal...

Polar Bear in Texas! G0715P

Polar Bear in Texas! G0715P

11-19-2010 05:36 AM by Simons44 | 14 comments »

I assembled my new G0715P table saw today! First Impression:This thing is sweet! The nickle did not move a bit during the test. I used the blade that came with it for my tests before putting on my infinity blade. It cut clean, smooth and left a almost glue ready edge. Conversion to 110:The conversion to 110 was very easy. Of all things, I was the most nervous about this. Changing the circuit breaker was 3 screws, changing the plug was 3 wires and changing the jumpers was 4 screws. VERY ...

GREAT router lift !

GREAT router lift !

11-18-2010 07:29 PM by NBeener | 6 comments »

This really IS a review, so … I’m pointing to it. After spending a fair bit of time, making setup blocks out of UHMW, FOR my Amana glue joint router bit, I can honestly say that I LOVE this lift. The thread pitch and machining make precise dialing in operations—at thousandths of an inch—incredibly easy. Coupled with a height gauge, gauge blocks, or a good rule (I have a Pinnacle 12” that does the job, rather nicely), getting exact bit height is—relat...

Thompson Lathe Tool Handles

Thompson Lathe Tool Handles

11-18-2010 06:48 PM by Big_Bob | 6 comments »

I was looking for two new lathe tool handles when I stumbled across the Thompson website. I was intrigued by the idea that the handles were square and not round. They are not truly square because the edges are rounded over, but they are not the traditional round shape. The idea being the turner’s right hand can feel the shape of the tool and know where the flute of the tool is facing. If for example the flat part is facing up then the flute is up if the edge is up then the flute is facing...

Edited: Sturdy construction, odd warning

Edited: Sturdy construction, odd warning

11-18-2010 02:36 PM by Eric_S | 38 comments »

I purchased these last week when I thought I’d be fastening the tops to the nightstands this weekend. Well I screwed up the tops and now have a few more weeks of work(delayed until after holiday gifts are done). Anyways, I just received these fasteners in the mail yesterday and was all excited….until I read the back of the bags. I can’t remember the exact words since I dont have it in front of me right now but it goes something like this: Warning, materials used in thi...

Polar Bear in Florida!

I ordered this Grizzly Hybrid saw online on a Friday afternoon. Grizzly sent me an email with all of the shipping information and tracking number. The order was shipped the following Monday and 3 days later it was in my garage! FIRST IMPRESSION The first thing I noticed was the quality of the packaging. The saw was packed very neatly and securely and arrived without any damage. I was even more pleased when I started the unpacking process. I was very impressed with the overall quality of...

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

11-17-2010 05:16 PM by knotscott | 12 comments »

A few weeks ago I added this blade guard to my Shop Fox W1677. Even though I’m aware of the risks, I’m admittedly one of those who finds most stock blades guards to be cumbersome and even somewhat more dangerous because they severely obscure my view of the cut. (I realize that viewing the cut isn’t necessary, but I’m much more comfortable when I can see it) However I am a strong advocate for using a good splitter or riving knife, and have had the BORK riving knife on...

Highboy DVD by Glen Huey

I bought this DVD about a year ago and have found it to be one of the best DVD I have viewed.This was made before Glen went full time with Popular Woodworking.It has over 3 1/2 hours of instruction plus many extras including step by step photos and complete plans.One of my favorite thing about Glen’s DVDs is he shows many ways to do the same procedure.He hand cuts dovetails,cuts them on the bandsaw,and with a jigsaw.Also some very nice finishing information.I used this DVD as the basis ...

Worth every Penny

Worth every Penny

11-17-2010 03:28 PM by USCJeff | 2 comments »

I had a few bucks on a Lowe’s gift card and it was one of those rare times I didn’t have something jump out at me that I “need”. I’ve had good luck with Kreg products (namely, pocket hole jig) so I decided to give this one a shot. I normally have used a combo square, fixed squares, and some shop built story sticks and such. The claim from Kreg is that it can be used for 90 & 45 layout, a story stick, depth gauge for set up, a torpedo level, and a couple o...

Silent Woodworking...

Today I got to test out my new Veritas Small Plow Plane. It’s an unusual looking plane that is designed to form grooves (primarily rabbets parallel to the grain). I used it today to form a 3/8” wide by 5/16” deep rabbet to receive the base panel on the wax melter project. At this it was quick, easy and efficient. Compared with a electric router it was nearly silent, was faster to set up, and produced as good a finish without the dangers (to self and timber) of using a router...
