Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

12-13-2010 03:17 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I ordered the Dust Collecting Blade Cover (DCBC) sold by Bob Ross from The BORK Store. I think this is a fairly new product from Bob as he literally designed it to my specifications. His original design called for a 2-1/4” hose but that size of hose is hard to connect to a fixed dust collector. I asked him if he could make it to fit 2-1/2” hose and that I was planning on mounting it to 2” sch40 PVC pipe. One other thing that Bob did for me was to make the arms a little l...

I bought this ROS mainly on the strengths of its dust collection. A number of reviews that I’ve read consistently rated its dust capture better than other ROS (except of course the mighty Festool). After a couple of hours of use, I’m pretty happy with it so far…Pros:great dust captureminimal vibrationcomfortable to useCons:slow material removal1” DC port (would it have killed them to make the port 1 1/4” so as to fit a standard shop vac attachment???)

Great Honing Guide

Great Honing Guide

12-12-2010 05:37 PM by cut3times | 3 comments »

This is from the hand written notes of Richard: The blade is clamped onto and makes contact with the underside of the two stainless steel location rods, these being the primary location datum. How far the cutting edge projects determines the honing angle. For example clamp up at 5/8” (16mm) and the blade will make an angle of 25 degrees to the sharpening surface. Measurement is taken from the side of the stainless steel rod to the cutting edge. A strip of wood with an accurate shoulder cou...

Glad I picked this Drill Press

Glad I picked this Drill Press

Anyone thinking of buying this drill press, should really do it if you have the cash. I have already benefited from the 6” quill while making my workbench. The angles are good, although I have only needed side to side angles, compound has not come up for me. While it really should come with a fence, I had a router fence that I used and Rockler hold downs that fit perfectly in the slots provided in the table, same slots work great for the fence. When I need to take off the hold-dow...

General Machine - 75-050T M1 - Tilting Bench top Mortiser

12-09-2010 12:58 AM by Gator | 4 comments »

Picked this up today at Federated Tool in London, OntarioIt is the General Machine 75-050T1 – Tilting head mortiser. I brought it home and unpacked it. There was a small amount of oil, not pounds of grease to deal with. I had the entire unit wiped down in less than 10 minutes. There were no parts missing, and it was 80% assembled in the box. Instructions were not too bad, there was not much to do. The fence is dead straight and required no shimming. The unit came with 4 chisels, 1/4&...

Now you guys and gals know me, I am a bang for the buck kind of guy, and in order to separate my cheap fingers from those bucks, your product or service better offer some real tangible additional bang… Enter the OneWay Manufacturing Wolverine jig. I initially got this because I had no idea that PSI had a cheaper clone, and after a couple of frustrating plywood copies later, I opted for the steel of the Wolverine to avoid the flexing that was messing up my angles. To call the Wolve...

Awesome product, exactly as advertised

Awesome product, exactly as advertised

My jointer plane is a vintage Stanley #7 SweetHeart that I bought off of eBay for $60. I spent a day truing up the sole and frog, along with another 3 or so days working on the blade and chipbreaker. I’ve used it like that for a few months, sharpening the blade about once a week as needed. It always worked “okay”, but I felt like it could be better. This was the first and only jointer plane I’ve ever owned. So I didn’t really have anything to compare it to as ...

Ridgid DP1550 Drill Press

Hi all, I just got back from Home Depot a few hours ago with my new drill press. Woo-Hoo! I chose this drill press based on the weight of the reviews that I’ve read on this website and elsewhere. I just brought it home a few hours ago and just completed setting it up and testing it. Out of the box, the reviews hold true about the accuracy of the parts fitting together, fit and finish, ease of assembly, and usability. After seating the chuck, I found the runout is about .003&#...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Simple Green PRO HD excells at cleaning saw blades

Simple Green PRO HD excells at cleaning saw blades

12-06-2010 09:46 PM by pintodeluxe | 16 comments »

I heard that soaking carbide tipped blades in simple green can leach carbide from the metal. I emailed simple green and a rep confirmed that the standard simple green should not be used to soak carbide tipped blades. He recommended two other simple green products that have no such problem: 1. Simple Green Pro HD 2. Simple Green Aircraft parts cleaner I found the simple green Pro HD at my local Home Depot. It is the purple stuff and is sold in a 1 gallon concentrate for around $13. I...
