Craiglist Find

10-08-2018 12:48 PM by mikewalt | 7 comments »

Picked this up off craiglist, my best guess is its a 37-220, serial# 70-1635, but its hard to tell for sure. Had to order new bearings for it, as one was frozen.A well made tools for its age, and even after sitting in poor condition was easily dissembled and reassembled. All parts were were made with quality materials, as you can see the brass block that lubricated the screw drives.This is a good tool for a small project worker. It dosn’t take much space and with the 6” wide bla...

Working as intended framing nailer

Working as intended framing nailer

10-07-2018 07:24 PM by Holbs | 5 comments »

With my shed project, I knew a nailer was going to be needed for framing. Not wanting to chuck out $200 or $300 for a rarely used nailer, I opted for the NuMax 21 degree framing nailer hooked up to my 3HP/12 gallon air compressor.I’m thankful I did, after nearly 1,000 framing nails into 2×4’s and paneling.Works as advertised.

A well done dedicated HVLP paint sprayer

A well done dedicated HVLP paint sprayer

10-07-2018 07:15 PM by Holbs | 2 comments »

There are many hand held HVLP sprayers out there to choose from. I keep an eye on auctions and I see way too many returns of the Wagner Flexio sprayers. Granted, for every 200 Flexio’s, surely 1 has a fault. All these hand held sprayers are plastic, after all. To change it up, I went with the Homeright Finish Max since I own the small/large Homeright spray shelters. Great shelters so wanted to give the sprayer a shot. At a respectful price tag, as well via Amazon.Right out of the ...

Awesome accuracy

Awesome accuracy

I recently bought a dewalt planer and amazon suggested i buy a wr510 with it. It was only $47, so I did. 2 weeks later its now $63 on amazon…. Installation was kinda hard at the begining. I would have paid $10-15 more if it came with a replacement bracket that you can take off the dewalt (see black bracket in 2nd picture). The double sided tape makes it difficult to get it lined up exactly so the bottom of it is flush with the bottom of the planer surface. They suggest it be lev...

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

10-02-2018 02:09 AM by steffen707 | 9 comments »

I read the dewalt planer would overpower normal shop vacs and had enough power to blow the chips into the cyclone. While this was kinda true, it struggled with the shopvac hooked up to the top port of the cyclone and not turned on. So i just hooked a hose up to the top port, it worked a lot better, but when the 30 gallon can I had fills up, it of course happens in the middle of a pass. So half a pass worth of fluff gets blown all over the shop or driveway….... SOLUTION? I dai...

took lots of abuse, then died, amazon replaced

I wish i could review multiple products in one review, but i’ll post several. I bought a dewalt dw735x off Amazon for $499, plus the stand for $141 more, both shipped with prime. I’ve never used a planer before and had a huge pile of old rough sawn pine and oak. I don’t have a jointer, so i was feeding the boards in and might have been cuped, warped, twisted, ect. I would plane one side, then the other and alternate back and forth. I installed a Wixey WR510 off am...

Baileigh and Elite Metal Tools Customer Service

Baileigh and Elite Metal Tools Customer Service

09-28-2018 09:50 PM by Matt Przybylski | 27 comments »

UPDATE: I’ve spent the last few days working with Shane from Baileigh (who is on this forum) and he’s gone above and beyond for me. Baileigh, after seeing all my photos and in speaking a few times, has agreed to completely replace the machine. I could not be happier with this outcome and I can’t speak any more highly of Shane and Baileigh in this whole situation. They stepped up and took care of me and I’m forever grateful for it. 5 stars for Baileigh, 0 stars for E...

Disappointed by this lathe

Disappointed by this lathe

09-28-2018 06:04 AM by cathyb | 44 comments »

One month ago my Laguna 18/36 lathe arrived and I was excited. My previous lathe was from General Tools. It did not have any bells or whistles, but it was a dependable workhorse and I wish I had that lathe now. These are the problems I have experience so far with the Laguna: 1. If dust or small chips get wedged in the banjo clamp handle it will not lock in place. Take the time to brush off the dust and get the dang thing to hold in position on the bed. Really? 2. Same problem w...

I purchased my WorkSharp 3000 last year for the primary purpose of sharpening chisels.It seems to do that pretty well and I was happy until I fell into the world of old hand planes.This seemed to take forever.I was not very happy with the results I was getting.I had pretty much fell out of love with this machine and then I read about the wide blade attachment.Holy cow! What a game changer! I had this installed and ready to go in just a few minutes and with the handy guide it comes with, for...

Contractor Saw PALS-  Should Have Done This Sooner

Contractor Saw PALS- Should Have Done This Sooner

09-25-2018 06:08 PM by fivecodys | 8 comments »

After reading several reviews and watching every video I could find, I decided to try the Contractor-saw PALS alignment system.Previously I was using a bar clamp to pull the rear trunnion into alignment as I tightened the bolts.It was a hit and miss process and I really didn’t have a good way to measure my results. I coupled the PALS with this jig I found posted here on Lumberjocks: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96896 The PALS do exactly what they claim to do. The instructions ...
