An affordable wet sharperner

An affordable wet sharperner

I received tonight my new wet sharpener. I have been working with it for about one hour and it is working extremely well for me. I sharpened chisels, and planes blades and kitchen knives.I read on another forum that all the Tormek accessories mount right on this sharpener.

Initial Impressions of this drill press

Initial Impressions of this drill press

04-25-2010 08:41 PM by AjayO | 6 comments »

I wanted to share my initial impression of this new Jet drill press. This is a new 12” portable drill press offering from Jet with digital speed readout (hence DRO: Digital Read Out in the name), variable speed and laser cross hair alignment. I picked it up as a barely used from a local person about 1.5 months ago. I haven’t used it a lot but have been looking for a drill press for quite some time so at least wanted to share some initial impression. I compared this press to Del...

You don't get what you paid for!

I purchased this Panel saw in November 09 because I have a Laguna HD band saw already. So based on buying previus tools of Laguna I thought they made all good machinery. Well, not so!. When putting this saw together and installing the extended table and tighting the allen set screws it begin to warp the main body of saw so I had to back off, weird uh? I could not understand what was going on with this. Then the main support arm had issues such as you slide the table back and forth you could f...

Good saw, with modifications!

Good saw, with modifications!

Straight out of the box you will be dissapointed with this saw. Some of the major flaws are very pronounced vibration above the 1200 spm speed, the blower is not nearly strong enough, the knob to tighten the tilt on the tabletop is made of of soft rubber and will bust if overtightened, also if you plan on using the holddown foot it is almost impossible to get it tight enough to not twist if the piece of wood you’re cutting actually tries to pull up against it. However, I have found th...

A great upgrade to a non-riving knife saw

A great upgrade to a non-riving knife saw

Product web page: www.leestyron.com I have wanted to order a Shark Guard from Lee for quite some time. One night this winter I went for it. At the time he said (on the webpage) the wait was about 3-4 weeks. I didn’t get a confirmation email (maybe it got filtered) and somewhere around two months later I got the shipping notice for the guard. I didn’t try to contact Lee myself so I’m not really complaining. The whole thing came in about two days from the shipping n...

New Delta Unisaw

New Delta Unisaw

04-24-2010 11:01 AM by Eric | 11 comments »

I recently retired from Air National Guard, after spending 26.5 years on, active duty, reserve or guard. My wife suggested I treat myself to a retirement gift. I suggested a new Delta Unisaw and she said, “Yes”. My reply was “What”? It took me about a month to get over sticker shock and order the saw. So it was delivered to my garage. Now how to get it into my walk out basement? The big box weighs around 450 pounds. How to get it to my shop in the basement? My wife called a moving...

The Best Blades hands down!

The Best Blades hands down!

The other day I bought one of these new pinnacle blades along with a hock blade for my new record planes you see in the pics. I got this blade after getting the email update from rob cosman with a link to youtube and the vid was him cutting or should i say shaving a piece of wood with an old stanley #4, he was getting full width shavings from the wood. I couldn’t belive my eyes with a stanley i thought no way so i thought it was a vid on how to sharpen the blades to get shavings like th...

Excellent all around blade

Excellent all around blade

Over the past year I have heard nothing but praise about the new Freud P410 blade. Freud has touted it as the best all around blade and even “out performs” the Forrest WWII. Not being one to buy into all the hype and jump on the band wagon I figured I would bide my time and wait until I found a new blade at a more affordable price. I do have a Forrest WWII and I paid a pretty penny for it, however it is a thin kerf blade. I got the thin kerf because at the time I had an under p...

Bought one this evening!

Bought one this evening!

04-23-2010 02:06 AM by Knothead62 | 10 comments »

Based on the reviews here on LJ forum and a good review in WOOD magazine, I took the plunge and bought one at Lowe’s this evening. I had saved up some money and have it in the garage, ready to open, read the manual (real men don’t read the manual), build a stand for it and make lots of wood dust or chips, whatever it makes. I’m going to plane some scrap pine to get used to it and make any necessary adjustments . The LOML wants a dining table. I have a stack of pecan that...

Just picked up my new Bosch 18v Litheon yesterday morning ($239 can) for an install i had to do. I wasnt confident that my Dewalt would make it through the job and didnt want to be stuck without. This is the second Bosch drill ive had and now i wont use anything else. This drill is very light for an 18v which im sure mostly has to do with the lo-pro litheon battery packs it uses. i found myself check the case befor i left to make sure the drill was actually in there because it was so light co...
