Up-Grade  Miter Gauge

Up-Grade Miter Gauge

03-05-2010 11:56 PM by blackcherry | 11 comments »

I recently have been up-grading some of my tool and on my short list was my table saw miter gauge. I felt that it was OK but not up to snuff with what was newer on the market. I’ve been a Incra user for many year and have never been displeased with any of there products so I started looking around and found a new Miter 1000SE on E-bay for sale below the market price. It was on one of those buy now or make and offer kinda deals so I made a offer of 20 dollars below what it lists at an...

Great Product!

Great Product!

Hey guys, I recently received a shipment of tools from Lee Valley and I’ll be putting in a small review on all of them. A straight edge is something that I have never owned before. It’s not something that is easy to find in Newfoundland, Canada (along with any other woodworking tools). But with the purchase of a router table and the making of a mitre saw stand, my twenty dollar HD level was not going to cut it. I am very pleased with this product. The length of the body is conc...

Cammel Saw Co.

Cammel Saw Co.

Just a quick review of a service company. They also sell lots of blades and knives for just about anything I believe. I just bought a used grizzly Jointer and the knives had several small nicks in them. I looked around the internet and couldn’t find anyone who could sharpen them for a good price (in my opinion). Finally I found this company and shot them an email. They emailed me back promptly and let me know that it would be about $18 to sharpen them, which compared to $45 at other pla...

Initially I was excited about getting this then thoroughly disappointed after using it.

I was looking for a cheap but effective option for cutting pen blanks since I don’t really have a workshop setup yet for the space nor the money for a large band-saw or table-saw even. So searching around on the internet I found this tiny little table-saw at Harbor Freight. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=93211 Listed at $39.99 it didn’t seem like to bad a deal. It claims it can cut 3/4” and cuts at 14,000rpm which should be just fine...

A bargain and capable

A bargain and capable

This dust collector does a great job for individual power tools including my Jet Pro Shop table saw, JET JJP-8BT 8” Benchtop Planer/Jointer Combo, and router table. The planer especially puts out a lot of shavings which are almost completely sucked up. And it’s easy to move between equipment. VERY easy assembly.

Very capable table saw

Very capable table saw

03-04-2010 11:16 PM by Twigger | 8 comments »

My two expert woodworking friends scoffed at any thoughts that I’d buy less than a table saw that I’d be happy with for a long long time. When I suggested this saw they both endorsed the idea. It’s been great. I will add that I’ve invested in the Forrest Woodworker II blade. The cuts are really good, and from a beginner. And I’ve done some pretty complicated work creating a maple corner cabinet with various mitered joints, dado groves and other finer feature...

Functional, precise, compact

Functional, precise, compact

I at first used this saw as a chop saw, setting up a workshop and building various racks, etc. Then I used the miter feature in cutting some six-sided shelves for a maple corner cabinet. That’s where I’ve appreciated the precision and repeatability of this saw. I’m looking forward to the compound miter feature when I cut some crown molding for the cabinet. The instructions with the saw are clear enough to get me there. The saw operations, including slide, are very smooth.

Satisfies expectations

Satisfies expectations

03-04-2010 10:13 PM by Twigger | 5 comments »

This machine satisfies expectations as long as you keep in mind it’s a 30” long, 60 lb. machine. So don’t go looking to joint 8 foot long boards as if it’s a 60” long, 300 lb. unit. But for drawer fronts and sides, home-made router table and cross cut sled fences, and the like, it’s great! Also expect, as I’ve seen in reviews of all sorts of jointers, to spend two hours carefully setting the infeed and outfeed tables to being coplanar, and getting ...

Using New Shaper

Using New Shaper

03-04-2010 08:48 AM by ND2ELK | 15 comments »

I finally got to try out my new shaper today. It has a 1 1/2hp motor and comes with a 1/2” spindle, 3/4” spindle, 1/4” collet and 1/2” collet for router bits. It has two different speeds and a forward and reverse. I really like the idea that I can use shaper cutters and router bits on the same machine. I have not bought any shaper cutters yet because I feel I should buy shaper cutters for each of the jobs as I do them. That holds true for router bits as well. As I do m...

Oneway Wheel Balancing System

Oneway Wheel Balancing System

03-03-2010 11:18 PM by Padre | 7 comments »

I bought this Oneway Wheel Balancing System from Craft Supplies, it cost 62.99. I do a lot of wood turning tool sharpening. I have an inexpensive 2 speed grinder I bought from Woodcraft and it rocked, rattled and rolled, that’s for sure!! I put this on this afternoon, and you would think I have a Baldor grinder with special balanced wheels. What a difference this has made. I recommend this grinder attachment.
