Craftsman Tool Storage (or I can do it by myself)

Craftsman Tool Storage (or I can do it by myself)

11-13-2009 10:35 PM by Viking | 3 comments »

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_009H0027000B?vName=Tools&cName=Garage I have been “making do” with a Craftsman 26” x 16” rolling cabinet and 26” x 12 tool chest that was purchased in 1971 but, decided that after 38 years it was time for more tool storage. Initially looked at some of the stainless tool cabinets at both Sears and Lowe’s but finally selected the Craftsman 40” wide black steel set listed above because the 1971 Craftsman s...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

11-13-2009 08:32 PM by Jim | 5 comments »

Multiple reviews already of the $99 Dust Deputy system sold by Oneida – thought I’d throw my two cents in on the $59 version that is just the cyclone sold separately. For the cost of a $5 painter’s bucket from Lowe’s and the time it takes to make a plywood lid, you have the same result as buying the complete kit with arguably a better lid/long term durability. I routed a groove in the plywood as someone else had suggested and put a layer of weather stripping in the...

New table saw and CMS  blades at Busy Bee - Canada Blue Torando.

New table saw and CMS blades at Busy Bee - Canada Blue Torando.

11-12-2009 11:33 PM by Bob #2 | 8 comments »

A pleasant surprise at a very decent price at Busy Bee Tools.I have been thinking about a new general purpose blade for a couple of months and spotted this one at the trade show here about a week ago.The blade and teeth are reportedly from German technology and fabricated in China.I noticed right away that the carbide tips were longer and seemed marginally thicker than most thin kerf blades I had been looking at. I must measure my old one.They have an anti vibration laser kerf in the body...

Grizzly G0656 8" jointer a good buy.

11-11-2009 09:56 PM by mart | 10 comments »

Late last winter i had a friend who flew down from here in Alaska to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he had purchased. He was driving it back up and was going through Washington so I had him stop by the Grizzly Warehouse to pick up a few things for me. One was the Grizzly G0656 8”x72” jointer with mobile base that they had for $795. When my buddy arrived we backed his truck into the shop and using some pipes and a rope tackled slid the box containing the jointer table (the heav...

Another GRIZZLY

Another GRIZZLY

11-10-2009 02:26 AM by khop | 5 comments »

OK I couldn’t help myself. When I ordered the G1071 OSS sander, I went ahead and got this one too. Might as well round out the total order to a grand right? I had always wanted to get a larger beefyer belt and disc sander. I still have the old Delta 6×36 which will be used for pencil sharpening. lol. Now on to the pros and cons. Pros, IT”S A GRIZZLY, Heavy and very stable, strong and definately an upgrade from the Delta. It has good dust collection. Cast iron disc and tilt...

Another Great Grizzly Product

Another Great Grizzly Product

11-10-2009 01:54 AM by khop | 11 comments »

I finally ordered the new OSS from Grizzly. As pictured, it was very heavy and once again, my electric hoist came to the rescue. At around 300 pounds, it is built like a tank. The unit came well packaged with thick styrofoam around all the pieces. There was ample amounts of the famous goo on most of the exposed metal parts. A little mineral spirits and a cloth rag cut through it qiuckly. I was fortunate to have the hoist to lift the top into position as well as lift the whole unit onto the mo...

Homemade veneer flattening solution

Homemade veneer flattening solution

11-09-2009 11:59 PM by RBWoodworker | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a veneer pump, and got some veneer along with the deal.. but the veneer that I got, was rolled in a protective paper and left for who know’s how long.. it took the curve of the roll well and would not lay flat no matter what I did.. I put it between two platens and left it for 3 weeks and that did not do the trick…SO.. Lee Jesberger has this solution on his website prowoodworkingtips.com and it consist of 1 gallon of water..8 oz. of pure glycerin which is avai...
