Laguna Professional Sliding Table

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

03-22-2011 06:55 AM by thamar | 20 comments »

As part of my shop upgrade, I decided to ditch my old “Mule” sliding table. I ordered the Laguna Professional Sliding Table. The website indicated that it would fit my Delta Unisaw and the person I talked to at Laguna said that some of their customers had mounted it on Unisaws. Once I received the sliding table, it just didn’t seem to me that it would fit my right tilt Unisaw. The right hand mounting bracket would have gotten in the way of the tilt wheel. The sliding...

The Artisan Flamingo dovetail marker

The Artisan Flamingo dovetail marker

03-21-2011 01:23 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

About a year ago I managed to stumble across a friend, Julio Alonso Diaz is a fellow woodworker and lover of hand-tools. It’s not surprising that we got along. Anybody who has seen some of his work can say that he has really dedicated the time to become good at it. And then he started making tools, a dangerous move. Mostly for my pocketbook. He started making these dovetail markers out of fruit-wood and exotics (mine is Cherry and Wenge). I wanted one from the first minute and went o...

Finally - a real table saw!

Finally - a real table saw!

03-20-2011 06:40 AM by RandyMorter | 29 comments »

I didn’t do any actual woodworking today, but I did do the next best thing – I got a new (to me) tool and worked on it! I bought a used Craftsman 221240 for $200 last week and it was delivered today, 3/19/2010. I paid to have it moved since it weighs about 400 pounds and I didn’t have an easy way to move it myself. Otherwise, my plan was to take it apart and move it that way. Now I almost wish I’d done that since I just about took it all apart anyway after it was de...

Anti Slip Tape

Anti Slip Tape

Well, not much to talk about here except if you don’t have any around the shop, you may consider getting a roll it’s around $6.00. It’s perfect for that none slip miter fence. I can find few more uses for it I’m sure. Peel and stick and 2” x 96” inches.

Nifty saw made even better by nifty upgrades

Nifty saw made even better by nifty upgrades

03-19-2011 11:44 PM by ferstler | 16 comments »

I have owned this Ridgid R4510 for about two weeks. During that time I have cut a fair amount of wood with it, and the unit works very well, indeed. The blade growls a bit as it comes up to speed, but once there the operation is smooth as silk. The fence was aligned square out of the box, as was the blade (which I replaced with a new Freud unit for precise ripping work, saving the Ridgid blade for rough-and-tumble stuff), and even the wheels were attached when I unpacked it. I did several ...

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

03-19-2011 12:10 PM by Tedstor | 24 comments »

Want a cheap way to check the “squareness” of machine fences, table saw blades, drill press chucks, and any other 90# angle in the shop?? Check out this set of 1-2-3 blocks. I bought this pair off Amazon for $10ish bucks several months ago. Several different types of these blocks are available from different manufacturers at widely varying price points. This model, was the cheapest. However, I can’t seem to find any flaws despite the low price. I’m sure the expensive ...

A Bad Rap

A Bad Rap

03-19-2011 05:58 AM by jim C | 31 comments »

I’m going out on a limb here. I’m going against the grain (pun intended)I’ve seen the reviews here on the “Blade Runner”, and I have to say it’s gotten a bad rap.I have been out of town, and when I got home, I decided to go into Woodcraft and nosy around. I saw the Bladerunner on display and thought about my past idea of mounting my Bosch jig saw upside down to a board, to be interchanged with my router, on my router table. This looked like a viable altern...

Vintage squares for those who want the best they can afford.

Vintage squares for those who want the best they can afford.

03-19-2011 01:14 AM by StumpyNubs | 31 comments »

What’s the best combination square around? While some will give their high priced favorites, most will say Starrett. And why not? It’s a proven tool. A new one will set you back about a hundred bucks, but fifty years from now it will still be straight, accurate and easy to read and use. You’re never going to hear me say a Starrett isn’t top of the line. But for those of us who want save our hundred dollar bills for more important things, there are other options that I argue are just as goo...

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

03-18-2011 09:15 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

I was frustruated by the factory blade tensioning knob on my Jet 14” bandsaw. It didn’t extend above the cover of the saw, so you bang your knuckles every turn you make. Plus the factory knob took forever to tension the blade.The Big Horn crank is quick and easy to use. The crank is above the saw – so no more banged knuckles. It is so quick that I am no longer considering a Carter quick-release. The $15 price and free delivery on Amazon was icing on the cake.

Shop Fox w1820

Shop Fox w1820

03-18-2011 08:18 PM by waldo | 5 comments »

I have had my new Shop Fox for about 2 weeks now and I’d like to think that I have put it through the paces by now. The saw is 230v and 3hp, comes with dado insert, push stick, blade, wrenchs, etc. It took roughly 2 hours or so to get this thing put together and ready to go. I looked at the Grizzly g0691, but didn’t like that I could be denied the liftgate by the trucker, I live at the end of a cul-de-sac, so I went with the Shop Fox, there is a dealer 30 miles from me. Movi...
