Have built a couple sets of cab’s with this as i cut on the foor,can’t man handle 4×8’s on the TS by my self any more. Rip and cross cuts good as on TS. Love this thing. Got it from Rockler by the way.

Shopsmith clamps

Shopsmith clamps

05-26-2011 06:07 PM by richgreer | 16 comments »

I was using these clamps today and thought to myself that I have never seen a review of these clamps on LJ. These are my favorite clamps for gluing up panels (like table tops or chair bottoms). What you see in this picture will be a chair bottom by the end of the day. When you tighten these clamps you are applying pressure to the edges and the sides. This does a great job of keeping the boards aligned. I particularly like these clamps when I am making something that is too big to ...

Loctite doesn't answer inquires

Loctite doesn't answer inquires

05-26-2011 09:16 AM by SailorJim | 22 comments »

This product burned through my tub surround. I wasn’t too happy about the ugly brown stain, but thought I might have done something wrong. I sent Loctite an inquiry using their web-site contact form and they did not reply, so I sent them the following inquiry one week later: ”Last week I sent you a note using this “contact” form and you didn’t have the courtesy to reply. The following is a repeat of my question.” “I’m not too happy wit...

Skil 91024 24-Piece Carbide Router Bit Set

Skil 91024 24-Piece Carbide Router Bit Set

05-24-2011 03:53 AM by BentheViking | 8 comments »

So I just got these off of Amazon. I know that they are not the highest quality set, but they were better than what I had (nothing). I have used Skil bits before and while they certainly not the best, they have always gotten the job done for me. Again for the price (less than $45) it was hard to say no. Mostly I wanted to make this post because when trying to research this set I could not find anything anywhere regarding what is included in this set and I figured now that I have it in my h...

Top class little lathe.

Top class little lathe.

I bought this little honey about 2 mts ago and have gotten very fond of it in the mean time. It has takensome hard abuse from my awkward, inexperienced hands but we are still friends and I am certain that I have gotten very good value for money.I was impressed right from the off with the weight of it and the general sturdy construction. It has 5 speeds that are easy to change (650 – 3000rpm) and it will turn a 10in o/d which is more than a few of them in the same price-range. 17.5in is ...

G0458 Drum Sander An Exceptional Machine

G0458 Drum Sander An Exceptional Machine

05-22-2011 06:31 AM by Bob Kollman | 16 comments »

I bought this drum sander about a month ago. In that time I have sanded about 200 board feet of wood.This is the first and only drum sander I have ever used, so some of you more experienced users may beable to help me. The jet 16-32 and 22-44 seem to be the most popular drum sanders. I choose the Grizzly because of it’s differences. 1) It is heavier, which equals rigidity.2) It gave me 4” more of sanding surface compared to the 16-32.3) The drum is stationary. The Jet ...

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

05-21-2011 07:38 PM by lilredweldingrod | 53 comments »

This review is just for unloading and assembling the Grizzly G0690 10” 3hp cabinet saw. and I will say that most of you will not need the manual at all as far as assembly is concerned. I was very impressed with the construction and workmanship of this saw and the price wasn’t bad either. After getting the saw on the ground and in the shop, we unpacked and checked for any damages. The way they pack these things, is almost impossible to receive damage in normal handling. Everything ...

Not perfect, but good features

Not perfect, but good features

05-20-2011 10:20 AM by Tedstor | 1 comment »

I know most people tend to favor a combo square over a try square, but for whatever reason, I still find myself reaching for my try square for most 90 degree layout tasks. Up until yesterday, I used a Sears/Companion brand square that I inherited from my wife’s grandfather. However, it only has a 6” blade, is graduated in 1/8ths, and is generally worn out after 30+yrs of use. My intent was to replace it with a similar tool with a slightly larger blade and scale graduated in 16ths....

HTC Portamate HTC PBR-001 PortaMate Wood Rack

05-20-2011 07:14 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

I just added this to my still-going-together garage shop last week. I’m still moving in, but have already started a couple of projects. As usual, I’m left with some plywood drops that will be usable on future projects, but I needed a place to store them until that time. I had a spot that was not being used for anything else, so I ordered this wood rack. I paid $52.64 with free shipping. It arrived fully clothed and unbeaten by Fed-ex. Installation was twelve screws for the ...
