A Huge Help!

I picked up this Ridgid Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle sander on 1/22/2011. I had done one band saw box and had four more in progress and wasn’t looking forward to all of the sanding they were going to require. Being the lazy guy I am, I wanted to find a tool to do some of the work for me. I read a number of reviews about sanders and this one seemed to get decent reviews and the oscillating belt sander feature appealed to me. The price wasn’t bad at $199 for what it offers. I also ...

Old Reliable

Old Reliable

01-25-2011 06:55 AM by devann | 10 comments »

This review is for a saw that I’ve been using almost daily for a little over four years now. I purchased the DW718 after using the DW708 for over nine years. Out of the box I noticed that the base had grown a bit, but still had 110 degrees of miter settings and the same simple to adjust detente plate. I found this to be a plus after witnessing what some of my peers experienced while recalibrating some of the other manufactures mitersaws. From my experience the only time I’ve had ...

Horrible service

Horrible service

01-25-2011 12:58 AM by twoblacklabs | 18 comments »

Lousy service, over a week to ship, no tracking number and damaged goods. I needed new bearings for my jointer restoration. Ordered online from this site. The purchase immediately cleared my account (surprise surprise). Yet a week later, no bearings. A call their “Customer Service” and the dude says there isn’t a tracking number and he’s positive they had already sent the bearings. Well, they finally showed up, as a drop shipment from another supplier. However, they...

AN IDEAL LIGHT FOR CLOSE WORK, (such as Carving, & Woodturning)

AN IDEAL LIGHT FOR CLOSE WORK, (such as Carving, & Woodturning)

01-24-2011 07:08 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 26 comments »

I finally started to continue carving on the Reverie Harp that I started about 2 years ago. But I was set back with some delays, like repairing some needed things, like repair an Ant Damaged Gazebo Shed roof. After that I had to take care of some health maintenance problems, such as Cataract surgery on one eye. So now after all of that, I started carving on the Harp again. I wasn’t satisfied with the light source I’ve been using, so I took a trip to our local Walmart. I w...

I picked up these at the local Lowes this past weekend. I needed something other then the little foam things you roll up and stick in you ear as I was going to use an medium sized electric demo hammer to chip up the porcelain floor tile in a bathroom I am redoing. Overall the sound deadening ability is very good. I would guess they would work fine in most applications. TV at a normal level is barely audible with them on. Now using an angle grinder is not so annoying.The radio reception...

Good router, okay table

Good router, okay table

01-24-2011 06:18 PM by RandyMorter | 9 comments »

I got the Bosch 1617EVSPK 2.25 HP Router Kit with the fixed and plunge bases as an upgrade to my Ryobi router. I was looking for more power and also for a router I could mount in a table (I never could get the Ryobi in a table for some reason, and I even tried a Ryobi table).I got the router from Lowe’s on 11/15/2010 for $189.00 in Phoenix, AZ. Home Depot had the same unit for $209.Those are only the two routers I’ve ever used and I like the Bosch much better. I chose it over othe...

I immediately went to loosen the thumb screws and mess around with it, but I couldn’t get the silv...

The new Bosch GCM12SD Miter Saw with articulating nuckles and no rails

The new Bosch GCM12SD Miter Saw with articulating nuckles and no rails

01-24-2011 01:22 AM by ellen35 | 26 comments »

I was at the New England Woodworking Show last week not really looking for anything in particular when I happened on the new Bosch Miter Saw. I had looked at the Festool… too expensive and I hate that your blades are limited by the size of the arbor & that Festool wants you to buy their blades. I started really looking at the Bosch and the price was so good ($694 show price) that I ended up ordering one the next day. It came on Wednesday but I didn’t have time to do anythin...

A book about the business aspects of Furniture Making

A book about the business aspects of Furniture Making

01-23-2011 10:46 PM by travisowenfurniture | 3 comments »

I loved this book. Though some of the specifics in this book aren’t up to date (written in 1984) and doesn’t even apply to the US (written in the UK), I found this book to be incredibly insightful and informative. Alan Peters apprenticed under Edward Barnsley, the son of one of the founders of the Arts & Crafts movement. He gives a concise history of the movement as it started in the rural countryside of Britain, catered to a public which could actually afford the work, and...

E C Emmerich Dovetail Plane

E C Emmerich Dovetail Plane

01-23-2011 08:31 PM by TheGravedigger | 2 comments »

Most of us have something on our Christmas wish list that we didn’t get – the thing that you turn around and spend your cash gifts on. In my case, it was a dovetail plane. I like the idea of sliding dovetails for casework, but find fitting them to be a pain. Routing the socket is simple enough, but fine-tuning the router table fence for a perfect pin fit can drive me to distraction – all I have to do is breathe wrong to get it too loose. It seemed to me that ro...
