Initial impressions of the Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter w/ Remote.

09-14-2010 04:25 PM by dbhost | 13 comments »

For starters, I am not claiming this is an all inclusive review, but rather this is an initial impressions write up for the Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter w/ remote. I have been watching price tags on these machines for quite some time now, and had considered the smaller Jet, Penn State, Delta, even Harbor Freight models, and had been put off by either the price tag, or the features. The G0572 had the CFM I was looking for, and was on sale for a price tag I was willing to spend. For the ...

Affordable but top notch turning tool

Affordable but top notch turning tool

09-12-2010 05:02 PM by mckenziedrums | 3 comments »

I’m a relative newbie to all things turning… and while I haven’t ventured very far out of the pen turning thing yet I know well enough to try and make sure I have the right tools around for the job. As with most folks I grabbed one of the cheapie kits of turning tools when I started and while those work well enough when you keep the sharp I wanted to get a more substantial skew that I could use for other projects and that would hold it’s edge better. I debated on wheth...

can't do without, but could be better

can't do without, but could be better

09-12-2010 11:25 AM by Greedo | 7 comments »

i saw this one being sold in a “dual pack” along with the GSR 10,8 drill driver for an interesting price where you basically get the GSR almost for free, but with only 2 batteries for both. (those are the european names)and yesterday i had my first “on site job” and i simply could not have done the job without this tool as i had to remove screws from inside tight boxes. it comes in a soft mallet with 2 bits wich i thought was another gadget i would never use, but it...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

09-11-2010 10:03 PM by Elizabeth | 13 comments »

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Ryobi Tek4 headphones....GREAT buy!

Ryobi Tek4 headphones....GREAT buy!

09-11-2010 09:58 PM by Mark | 12 comments »

So this is a must buy! I had just purchased these at The Home Depot at $60 and its worth every penny! I thought they were just regular headphones with a built in radio but then I tried it on and turns out it doesnt have a radio but it shuts out loud noises and magnifies the small sounds! I tested it out and I could still hear my radio as I was running wood through my planer! AMAZING! And not only that but it comes with a 4V battery and charger! You can also connect your MP3 player to it to li...

The Wood Slicer bandsaw blades from Highland Woodworking are awesome. When I first purchased my “Rikon 14 deluxe bandsaw my local Woodcraft store said that the 1/2” blade that came with it was pretty good. I took their advice on that, and also purchased a 3/4” 3TPI Timber Wolf blade for resawing. Both seemed to work, but my results were so-so. For the first real challenge I resawed some green cherry logs for turning blanks. I started with the blade that came with the saw. Meh. It really...

Rikon 6" Jointer-Good buy if you can get it for the same price.

Rikon 6" Jointer-Good buy if you can get it for the same price.

09-10-2010 02:01 AM by Brian024 | 14 comments »

After debating for a while on which jointer to get, I decided on this Rikon. This is the first jointer I have owned so I don’t have any other to compare but it is well built compared to the others I have used. When I bought it, Woodcraft had it on clearance for $299, the regular price was $450, I couldn’t pass it up. It comes in 2 separate boxes, base/motor in one and the table/fence in the other, the total shipping weight was around 280 lb’s. The motor comes premounte...

Mortise Pal -  A Great Tool

Mortise Pal - A Great Tool

09-08-2010 06:13 AM by mcase | 8 comments »

I’m a big fan of floating tenons. They are clean shouldered, very strong and very quick. So when I got a job for fir doors I wanted to use floating tenons. The problem for me was Getting them deep and wide enough for an exterior door. For most of my floating tenon mortises I use the Festool Domino. But while this a great machine it only cuts a mortise to 1” by 50mm thick. I could have used my hollow chisel mortiser and employed traditional mortise and tenon. This is ...

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

09-07-2010 03:24 PM by John | 6 comments »

I bought this a year or more ago and it sat on the shelf. This past weekend I had to drill several 2” + holes with forstner bits which usually means lots of shallow cuts and smoke and heat. I just happened to notice this can on the shelf, which I had pretty much forgotten about. This lube led to no smoke and I could take deeper “cuts” – e.g. 3/4” ply in maybe 4 plunges instead of 6-8 without. I also had a lot of pocket holes to drill this weekend and I ...

This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!! I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual ...
