Excellent Saw for the Cost

Excellent Saw for the Cost

03-17-2011 03:18 PM by Wodbug | 24 comments »

After reading the many reviews here both pro & con, and seeing the many years all of them were written, I thought to start a new thread to add my 2 cents worth. My saw was bought in 2005, replacing a 25 year old 10” Craftsman that was given to a close friend.The pro & cons: The fence is quite flimsy and very difficult to keep adjusted, so I bought a 26” utility fence from Rockler. After a tedius install having to drilll additional holes for brackets, and using some angled ...

Black & Decker JS660 Type 1 Jig saw

Black & Decker JS660 Type 1 Jig saw

Well I got this Jig Saw at Ace Hardware and I am very pleased. I saw that it came with a 2 year warranty. I also saw its reviews which where all 4-5 stars! Another thing that struck me was how many features it had. After I un boxed it I felt it and it felt very well built. I ran some tests and it cut all types of wood with ease! It can make fairly sharp turns and the cuts are pretty clean. So if you are looking for a new Jig saw any time soon please consider this one!

I was super excited when I got this at Rockler a couple weeks ago. They had a great sale spend $100 get $30 off and I thought this would be the perfect little add on to my newly restore G1023. So today I finally decided to put this slick little sucker onto my TS. Instructions are not what I like but they are easy enough to figure out. I drilled hold in my tubes got the rails of the DRO connected. Then went to attach the hangers to the DRO Rails and, well nothing as in it wouldn’t tig...

Everyone should have about 17 of these in their shop

Everyone should have about 17 of these in their shop

OK, a spring clamp is hardly a tool that dreams are made of. But a few days ago it occured to me that I’ve had a pair of these exact clamps in my shop for a few years now. I’ve probably used them 483 times since then. Very strong, very good quality. A couple days later I found myself in the HD for an extension cord, and decided to pick up a few more spring clamps while I was there. I could not remember how much I paid for the original pair, so I was pleasantly surprised to find th...

Very Easy Flutes

Very Easy Flutes

I needed to make 8 fluted columns for a small kitchen island I was making and remembered reading about a flute spacing jig here on LJs.The jig was delivered very quickly and I found it to be of the highest quality.It is made of THICK aluminum.What the jig does is help you set the fence on your router table for perfectly spaced flutes every time.You do not need to measure and there is no math involved.The instructions say to practice on a piece of scrap wood.The scrap piece and all 8 columns c...

I have to tell you, there are plenty of measuring instrument companies out there offering fractional reading digital calipers cheaper than this one. When I first got this in my hands at our monthly sales meeting, and experienced the ultra smooth movement on the slide, and the fact that it returns to zero every time, I was intrigued. The guys at Insize approached our company about becoming a dealer. They brought in many measuring instruments, and passed them around the room. Every one I ...

These should work as advertised

Just so you know, this is the first and only time I’ve ever used a Forstner bit. I’m working on a toy airplane project and believe I’ll have a need for these (I did in my first toy airplane – for the cockpit). Woodcraft has this set on sale right now for $12.49 (through 4/2/2011) so how can you go wrong? These bits come in a nice wood case. They are stamped with their size, “China”, and the max RPM on each bit. I made a couple of test cuts with the...

Rockler's Concealed Hinge

Rockler's Concealed Hinge

03-13-2011 07:06 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I purchased some of these so that I could finish my upper shop cabinets. The hinges didn’t come with installation instruction but an email to Rockler’s Tech Support got me a PDF of “installation instructions” in about 2 days. The instructions are vague but there was enough information so that I could suss out how to install them. They really don’t tell you the set back for the hinges and where to pre-drill so I installed a set into some scrap to get the correc...

MT2 Drill Chuck

MT2 Drill Chuck

Harbor Freight 1/2in MT2 Mini-Lathe Drill Chuck I purchased one of these last week based on a posting from LJ member Hairy. I paid $14.99 + shipping which is a good price for drill chucks with the arbor! A high precision chuck it’s not and this chuck isn’t going to win any contests for the best chuck of the year but it does make a good chuck for woodworking. The chuck that I had for my DP wouldn’t chuck up smaller bits so I needed to do something. I’ve been lo...
