Simple and Inexpensive

Simple and Inexpensive

1723 days ago by Jimi_C | 15 comments »

I’ve been looking at getting a Kreg pocket hole jig for a while now, with it basically being a toss up between the R3 Jr. and the extremely simple mini jig kit. I wasn’t really looking at the K4 or higher systems, since they go up in price pretty quickly, and as always I’m working on a budget. In addition, I always planned to get the face clamps, so the extra clamping capabilities of the more expensive systems seemed unnecessary for my level of work. I bought the small fac...

VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

1724 days ago by papadan | 6 comments »

Hell of a name, say it 3 times fast if you can. Hey people, I found these clamps at Lowes and have never seen any like them before. I like spring clamp for quick hold of light objects and I have a whole lot of different sized ones. Check these out, one clamp can hold 2 pieces of 1/8th” or hold a one by onto a saw horse. Package says 2” to 4” but the 2” is maximum without extending the arm LOL Actual usage is 2 pieces of paper up to 4 1/4”. At $4.97 each, I reall...

Five stars for blatent theft

Five stars for blatent theft

1724 days ago by rtb | 54 comments »

Had to stop a Lowes yesterday and wandered into the tool dept. to see whats new. And for once there is something !!! Found a 6” planer painted delta gray with delta blue knobs and the peell and stick delta label marked down for close out. Noticed that it was apparently the only one in stock, but on the shelf below they were a stacked some new porter-cable 6” planer with nice color labels on the boxes. They were porter cable gray with black knobs and peel and stick porter cable la...

Great value in a contractor saw

Great value in a contractor saw

1724 days ago by Glenn | 43 comments »

I’ve been using an early 1980s-era Craftsman 9-inch portable table saw with a steel table and stamped steel extension wings. After deciding that I needed something a little more precise than this older saw, I was looking to upgrade and was attracted to the Bosch 4100-09 partly because of the reviews, but mostly because of the blade guard/riving knife it features. I wasn’t really wanting another portable saw, however, and was looking for something beefier instead. I discovered this...

Nice Jointer, But Keep Dreaming.....

Well, I ordered my Steel City 8” Granite Deluxe Jointer with Helical Head back in the beginning of August… The guy a the shop I deal with said it would be a 3-4 week wait to get one, well.. 3-4 weeks later.. still didnt’ have it.. then it was two weeks, then two more weeks, then it’s on the boat, should be another two weeks, well.. it’s been 3 months since I ordered it, checked back in, and final answer, there should be one at the tool show, and you can have that...

Shop Made Honing Machine

Shop Made Honing Machine

1725 days ago by Andrew | 7 comments »

I was communicating in a project from dbhost about this honing machine so I thought I would share it here. I got this motor (1/2 hp 1750rpm) from Metal Mike, a nieghbor, same guy who traded a working drll press for a broken band saw. I took 2 peices of MDF and glued them together, roughed a circle, about 10” diameter, then mounted it on my lathe. I turned it into a perfect circle, lathes are good at that. I then purchased a work arbor from woodcraft, I think $14. Mounted the MDF ci...

Woodworking Show Costa Mesa Ca.

Woodworking Show Costa Mesa Ca.

1726 days ago by Ken90712 | 5 comments »

Well the Woodworking Show in Costa Mesa was nice! Ken and Pat, nice to meet you both! There was some great demonstrations and mini classes. I ended up spending four hundred w/o blinking an eye. My wife laughed when we got home and put all the stuff on the floor saying it’s like X-mas. Most impressive thing at the show was Sommerfelds Tools, Wow is all I can say. Their router kits and jigs are some of the most well thought out items I have every witnessed in use. I will be buying thei...

13" bench top planer (Reconditioned)

13" bench top planer (Reconditioned)

1727 days ago by Fireguy | 21 comments »

I purchased the rigid planer yesterday and got it home and unpacked it right away since it is reconditioned. Everything was with it and as far as I could tell never used or why it is reconditioned. Today I want thru the setup and tuned the in feed and out feed tables to level with the table. The thickness scale and repeat a cut where right on so I left them alone. Pro’s1: Great reviews2: Price $189.00, I also had a coupon for 10% off so ended up 169.00 + tax. Hard to beat that price.3:...

Great for small shop using only one tool at time

Great for small shop using only one tool at time

1727 days ago by Eric_S | 20 comments »

I don’t know how informative this review will be as it’s my first dust collector and review, but I’ll try. I was originally looking at the 50-760 after hearing lots of good reviews, but since I plan on only using one tool at a time and I dont mind rolling this around from tool to tool I didn’t mind something a little cheaper as I was trying to save money (or so I thought), quieter, and smaller. Despite reviews I’ve seen on amazon, this thing was very simple t...

Nice Tenoning jig, but....

Nice Tenoning jig, but....

1729 days ago by drfixit | 11 comments »

I had to modify it, by drilling new holes for the miter bar to use it on my Ridgid TS3612 saw. It has 2 sets of holes in it, but one set put it on top of my blade and the other set put it too far away. It was very easy to assemble other than this but after assembling it and adjusting it. It has 3 adjustable screws to fit your miter slot. It can be used for any angled tenon from 0 to 45 degrees. Wish I had bought one sooner.
