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.

05-23-2011 08:51 PM by murch | 9 comments »

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

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 ...

A great clamp for the price

A great clamp for the price

05-19-2011 06:26 PM by Chuck | 3 comments »

I purchased a set of these bar clamps several years ago. They were inexpensive and have worked very well. I was first introduced to them when taking a class at the CT Valley School of Woodworking. They were all still functional in the school, and I’m sure they get plenty of abuse in the school. They currently list for approximately $25/each for a 48” clamp and offer them in many lengths. The bar clamps are made from extruded aluminum, are reasonably light and give a good am...

Anything you wanted to know about chucks and more

Anything you wanted to know about chucks and more

This book review is from the May-June 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning by Doc Green   The tagline for the book “Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning” says, “Everything you need to know to secure wood on your lathe” and I don’t think that is an exaggeration. What more can there be when you have section headings of: Drive Centers and Live ...

Harbor Freight 3/4" Pipe Clamp with Base

Harbor Freight 3/4" Pipe Clamp with Base

05-18-2011 04:00 PM by zindel | 12 comments »

about a week ago i needed to pick up some bar clamps to handle a larger project that I was fixing up. I started off at Ace hardware because i knew i needed the pipe and thought i would check the prices of the clamps…and wow they were $17 big ones, and for 2 of them that means $34 + $22 for the pipes…no thanks. So i pulled out the good old phone and looked on HF to see their price…$9.99 on sale plus these have a base which is a bonus if you ask me. I have used them for a few ...
