One Sweet Saw

One Sweet Saw

03-07-2011 05:41 AM by Don | 22 comments »

Cuts very clean. The 90 degree stops were perfectly square right out of the box so no adjustment needed. With a dust collector attached it’s got excellent dust control. It glides so smooth you can just about operate it with a couple fingers. My only gripe is that it did not come with a laser guide. Even my $90 Makita P.O.S. came with one. For an $800 saw to not have one is mind boggling. I was so annoyed by that I almost gave it 4 stars.

Kelton ER Collet Handles

Kelton ER Collet Handles

03-07-2011 02:36 AM by Barbara Gill | 2 comments »

I have not bought any new woodturning tools in over a year. After hearing about the Kelton ER collet handles I decided they would be just the system I needed. Today I have been using them and they are even better than I had been told. Not only are the handles very easy on the hands, including not being cold to the touch but they also have helped me solve several problems. One of those problems was space; I simply had more tools than room. I have removed the wood handles from all of the mos...

Something to avoid

Something to avoid

Prefix: I should say that I’m not a very experienced woodworker, so I’m not comparing this machine with anything else – I have no idea whether this table saw is better, or worse, than a Griz X, or a Bear Y. ————————————————————————————————————- A couple of ...

my review of the new unisaw

my review of the new unisaw

03-06-2011 04:27 AM by sawdustphill | 7 comments »

Extes- express delivered my new 3hp unisaw on march first. It came in five boxes. when I opened the bigbox I noticed I didn’t get the black folder they advertise my manuals were in a plastic bag, I don’t know whatsup with that And the wrench did not have the soft grip on it, I think delta is trying to cheapen up. But on a posative note the drawer was metal with full extension drawer slides, not the cheap mdf I saw on the one they had at woodcraft in Lexington, Ky. The throat open...

LOCKJAW 7CCS Self-Adjusting Locking Clamp

LOCKJAW 7CCS Self-Adjusting Locking Clamp

03-05-2011 06:29 PM by Don Johnson | 6 comments »

Whilst viewing LJ’s Project page, some clamps popped up in the advertisement sidebar, so I decided to investigate. The blurb for the set of four clamps read as follows: Offering much more than the traditional variety, this set of four LockJaw self-adjusting locking clamps are perfect for getting the job done. Versatile and easy to use, the clamps are great for any number of jobs, and the patented LockJaw locking mechanism means the jaws open and adjust automatically to any size obje...

Not the router lift to buy

Not the router lift to buy

03-05-2011 09:32 PM by misbeshavings | 11 comments »

I bought a Jointech router lift 2 years ago based on ratings I found in magazines – it was a “tool of the year” award winner. Within a year, the Wixey digital indicator quit zeroing. So much for the digital advantage. This year, the lift quit lifting. It was never really “smooth”, and I finally stripped the gears off of the incredibly poor engineered nylon gear that engages a large ring gear to accomplish the lift. Insult to injury, when I ordered a rep...

Great Clamps Period, the price is just a bonus

Great Clamps Period, the price is just a bonus

03-05-2011 01:51 AM by patcollins | 20 comments »

This is a bar clamp from Harbor Freight. I only bought two because I wasn’t sure how good it would be and some stuff from there is junk. These beauties only cost me $3.99 each but when I got them home and used them I could not believe the value in this purchase. The screw has a very nice rubberized grip which i like alot better than a simple wood handle. The rubber pads are nice and study and actually stay on, I tightened these puppies down and they did not slip at all. I bet if...

Cannot tighten bits in Triton Router

Cannot tighten bits in Triton Router

03-04-2011 07:51 PM by Albert | 23 comments »

When using the 1/4 inch collet adapter I just cannot tighten the bit securely. I know enough to leave it not quite bottomed out in the chuck and I know that if I tighten it any more it will shear the router away from the mounting plate. The 1/2 inch bits seem to be much more secure. I think the way it is it is a dangerous situation because the bit will ‘climb’ out from the collet.I E Mailed the Triton people over a week ago and have gotten no response (yet).Has anyone els...

G0490X jointer

It has taken me a few weeks but I have finally got my new planer and jointer all adjusted and running. I ran about 30 bf a cherry through them for a project I am working on. This is the first Grizzly purchase that I have made and I will definitely look at Grizzly when I go to upgrade my 9” crapsman band saw that I got for $35 on Craig’s list.The fit and finish we about what I expected. I took about 5 minutes to file the sharp edges and scrape a few drops of paint off the jointer fenc...
