after 7 years of use my festool ts75 is still a work horse money maker.

when i first used my new festool saw i didn’t really realize it’s full potential but after 7 years of heavy use i have made very difficult cuts that would require jigs and or special table saw setups and router setups a thing of the past.i have made very long compound angle cuts upside down,vertical and horizontal,stack cut whole bundles of exotic veneers and stitch them up with no blow out and with perfect seams. the plunge feature and its stop give you the ability to cut out sla...

Jointer Blades from Infinity Cutting Tools

Jointer Blades from Infinity Cutting Tools

03-17-2015 07:25 PM by frosty50 | 5 comments »

I was very impressed with Infinity Cutting Tools customer service. I ordered a set of new blades for my jointer as they were in desperate need of replacing. My son had used the jointer and the results were several nicks in the blade at least 1/16” in depth. My local sharpening shop recommended replacement do to the damage. I ordered them on-line and Infinity processed the order within a day and I received them through the mail within the allotted time. I was excited to get back to the s...

Laguna 14/12 vibration issues fixed

Laguna 14/12 vibration issues fixed

03-17-2015 03:48 PM by greatview | 16 comments »

I recently set up a new 14/12 bandsaw and found no vibration issues as have been previously reported on this forum. It looks as if Laguna solved whatever problems they might have had. I did make a couple of modifications as described by Randy Woodworker on his youtube videos including a zero clearance insert and replacing the metal dust shield with one of wood held in place by magnets. Overall, a great saw.

Great dovetail guide!

Great dovetail guide!

03-15-2015 08:29 PM by AESamuel | 3 comments »

I bought one of these magnetic dovetail guides from David Barron after unsuccessfully trying freehand myself and am astounded by the results on my first try using the guide with my budget zona gent’s saw. I ordered the guide by e-mail in the evening, David posted the guide the next day and the day after the guide arrived on my doorstep. It was very well packaged and is solidly built. It even came with spare replacement covers for the magnets and a packet of haribo sweets too! The ...

Dust collection for my Miter Saw

Dust collection for my Miter Saw

03-14-2015 12:03 PM by Alongiron | 13 comments »

For all of us, the miter saw can toss around the sawdust with the best of them and is rally hard to control…until now!I had $150 bucks burning a hole in my pocket from a couple of small items I had made and I knew I wanted to spend it on a dust collector for my Miter saw. I searched online for diferent types and I found this one to fit my needs the best and it was in my price range..it came to $148.00 including shipping http://www.mytoolstore.com/rousseau/dustcoll.html It attached...

Makita 18v 3pc combo kit

Makita 18v 3pc combo kit

03-14-2015 01:36 AM by Hooligan | 10 comments »

I recently decided to purchase a new driver/impact for the shop and went with the Makita kit. I was reluctant after reading a lot about the battery life being short, but after thinking about the speed of recharge and the light weight nature of the tools decided that since I am just a hobbyist I could deal with the down time between charges. I placed the batteries on the charger today for the first time to find that neither would take a charge! Sure it felt like a bonus that they included the ...

problems but fast customer service

problems but fast customer service

03-12-2015 08:06 PM by Ray s | 5 comments »

I purchased a new Rikon 70-220VSR lathe on the 11th of November 2014 from Woodcraft. I turned a few pieces and the Rikon stopped working. I called customer service and they sent a new control board via two day mail. It took very little time to install and the lather worked like a charm. One caveat, you must stop the motor and wait for the speed indicator to clear prior to changing from forward to reverse of vice-verso. Cheers for the customer support for the fast identification and deliver...

Mast-r-lift with Incra magnalock plates

Mast-r-lift with Incra magnalock plates

03-11-2015 03:36 PM by philba | 12 comments »

This lift is “sorta” branded by Incra but it’s basically the JessEm Mast-R-Lift II with the Incra MagnaLock insert plates. I am assuming this is made and shipped by JessEm. I purchased it through the Incremental Tools web site. In some ways this JessEm/Incra partnership is a tale of two companies (apologies to Mr Dickens). While all the Incra products I have bought have had superb engineering and packaging, the JessEm kind of came up a bit short. I also installed a ne...

FESTOOL KAPEX - WOW! (BUT Not quite 5 Stars (4.5 STARS))

FESTOOL KAPEX - WOW! (BUT Not quite 5 Stars (4.5 STARS))

03-10-2015 03:54 PM by Rockne | 24 comments »

This will be a quick review and really somewhat of a comparison between the Festool Kapex and the Bosch Glide 12”. I replaced my Bosch Glide Saw with a Kapex. It made absolutely zero economical sense, especially given that I’m just a very occasional hobbyist, but when Festool had their “sale”, I jumped on one. My primary motivating factors were 1) the dust collection (not so much for my health, but my hatred for cleaning), 2) the promise that the Kapex would cut 45&...

Excellent beginer plane

Excellent beginer plane

03-09-2015 02:37 AM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

For a while i have been curious about the all hand plane movement. So i decided, I had to start somewhere, so i read a little them i jumped in. I ordered the 12-920 from Amazon for about $35. The unit came in perfect condition. The overall first impression is that the unit is well build and surprisingly heaving. Quick check and as suspected it did need to have bottom flatten and the blade seriously sharpen. That took a little bit of time but i have to say that is the first one i did so not be...
