Triton Router

Triton Router

08-19-2009 01:45 AM by Ed Elizondo | 16 comments »

I purchased the Triton 3 1/4 HP back in April of this year at the Houston Woodworking Show. I didn’t have a chance to use until just a few weeks ago. I loved the action while using the plunge and the soft start made it easy to handle and manuver. Having the variable speed made it easy when using the larger bits for raised panels. I currently have it mounted on my router table and while although I wish I had the hand crank to raise and lower the bit, I make do adjusting under the table. ...

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

08-14-2009 06:27 AM by akdale | 5 comments »

Large top and well made. Ordered this top 2 years ago. Took a while to arrive and when it did the center section was crowned. The table comes in 3 sections of extruded aluminum that you bolt together. I email Sommerfeld and they explained this was a manufacturing issue and that a new section would be mailed. It was, 2 months later. I was told to keep the old section, was only billed for the table, no shipping for the first one or replacement section and they tossed in a well made shop...

I love my Router Boss!

I love my Router Boss!

I’m a perfectionist. I only have a few projects under my belt but each one has been seems to be a leap in quality from the last. I was wanting to do dovetails, lots of inlay and complex joinery. I wanted to do it all but it seemed like I was going to be making alot of router jigs, bandsaw jigs and table saw jigs. I didn’t want to spend all of my time making jigs though. I wanted to spend it making these projects I see in my head. In my head they’re perfect and I won...

1 Unlevel top and 3 warped fences

1 Unlevel top and 3 warped fences

08-12-2009 02:07 PM by Rick | 22 comments »

It was between the Grizzly G0555X, G0513 and the Rikon Deluxe. I deliberated the total cost of ownership and quality of each saw. That meant upgrades, modifications, shipping and the number of years I was sure the saw would be useful to me. Many reviews I read on the grizzly’s said that they had vibration issues so they’d need new poly bands for the wheels and other slight modifications that actually add to the total price. I’ve never been ok with sub-par quality so I knew w...

Sawhorse with an attitude!

Sawhorse with an attitude!

08-10-2009 05:47 AM by Joseph Cataldie | 13 comments »

I just got my B&D Workmate 125 put together. I’d heard horror stories about the assembly process, in fact, the guy that sold it to me at the B&D outlet told me not to pay too much attention to the instructions. He was right. The instructions are terrible, but I still got it together in about 30-45 minutes while watching TV. Granted, a number of the holes for the bolts didn’t line up very well, but with a set of vise grips, a few hammer taps and minimal cursing, it went...

I've got a problem with this saw

I've got a problem with this saw

08-09-2009 02:37 PM by 45acpbuilder | 19 comments »

It’s so darn quiet I’m afraid I’ll walk off and leave it running! I added a little flag to the tensioner so I won’t turn it on with the blade loose. Seems someone, Grizzly themselves maybe, could add this to their saws with out any problem. It’s just a bead chain tied to the tension lever and a 1/4” bolt tapped into the arm behind the switch so the tension lever lifts the flag so it blocks the start switch. The saw blade squealed when resawing so I ran ...

Rockler Pen Starter Kit and turning kits

Rockler Pen Starter Kit and turning kits

08-09-2009 09:00 AM by USCJeff | 17 comments »

I decided to finally give up my boycott and try my hand at pen making. I didn’t want to become one of those “pen guys”. There are a lot of things you need to get started on pen one. I bought the starter set as it seemed the simplist way to go about it. Having turned a couple pens now, I might have done it differently. The pricing is good considering the a la carte prices of the components. I found, however, I would have opted for different components. The mandrel work...

Great miter saw stand, if you can't have yours set up all the time.

Great miter saw stand, if you can't have yours set up all the time.

08-09-2009 07:59 AM by Trikzter | 5 comments »

I bought this Ryobi Miter Saw stand a few months ago and I love it. The picture shows it set up, but the legs will fold in and you can carry it around or for storage. I don’t have enough room to have a saw set up all the time and I have to set my saw up outside to cut for now. For the first time use, you have to attach the cross “sleds” or feet if you will, then attach the saw and the feet to the cross bars. It’s best to tilt the front towards you and then let the wei...

Harbor Freight 4" x 36" Belt/6" Disc Sander

Harbor Freight 4" x 36" Belt/6" Disc Sander

08-09-2009 04:19 AM by cpd011 | 15 comments »

This is my first review. I received the sale paper for Harbor Freight a week ago and like many of you I’m very leary of any of their power tools. My grandpa always tried to buy the best tools, and between my dad and his brother they are still using his Unisaw, drill press, joiner and bandsaw which ar all at least 40 years old. getting back to the point, I saw they were advertising a benchtop belt/ disc sander combo for $49.95 and decided to make the twenty minute road trip with my dad. ...

No more un-square squares. This one is made from solid phenolic

No more un-square squares. This one is made from solid phenolic

08-08-2009 02:14 AM by GaryK | 17 comments »

I was notified via e-mail about this square and ordered one right away. It’s a bit pricey at $70, but I will only ever need one. The first thing I did when I got it was to check it for square. It was perfect. Not much more to say in that regard.The only drawback I can see that the material isn’t steel which means that it can be damaged it you aren’t careful.The holes for your hands makes it real easy to move around and position.It’s also nice and thick so it̵...
