I just used this product on a glue up and it offers no “Slower speed of set”. Its speed of set is no slower than any other Titebond product. If you get 5 minutes your will be lucky.

I never thought to check for square

I never thought to check for square

What appealed about this product was both the tilting head and the fact the table slides, at the price point of around $500 CDN. I bought it shortly before we moved 3 years ago so never had much of a chance to use it. One of the hold downs broke during that limited period of usage, and that was replaced without a problem. In the interim i used biscuits and other joinery for the rest of the project. A couple years later I was still unpacking and organizing my shop, and I unpacked it for a ...

An okay saw.

An okay saw.

11-27-2018 07:47 PM by bgilb | 10 comments »

For the money, the saw is okay at best. I used to have a Rigid R4511 (the crazy granite top one) and honestly some things about that one were better than this saw. Things I like: Solid construction and very heavy and well built. It runs really well so no issues there. Good dust collection. The blade guard is good. Things that I don’t like: #1) The fence (at least the one I got) is garbage. Everyone said it was upgraded compared to the previous model. The fence is not flat, it&#...

More than I was looking for

More than I was looking for

THIS ROUTER IS BARELY A MONTH OLD AND THE MOTOR QUIT WORKING. GRIZZLY IS SENDING A RETURN MAILER FOR A REFUND. IT WORKED WELL OUT OF THE BOX, AND SEEMED LIKE A GOOD DEAL. GUESS I’LL BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER ROUTER SOON. ANY SUGGESTIONS? I almost always use the router table, but wanted a plunge router for a project I was working on. There are a lot of trim routers on the market now with plunge capability and 6 amp motors. The T27139 was the least expensive of the routers I looked at...

When Reading the Manual Doesn't Help

When Reading the Manual Doesn't Help

11-18-2018 06:36 PM by MikeFromCanmore | 8 comments »

i decided it was time to try my hand at making dovetail joints, so I purchased the Craftex CT052N 12” Dovetail Jig. I had some 5/8ths boards so I thought a 1/2” dovetail jig would be appropriate. I have a Bosch router, a 1/2” 14 degree dovetail bit and a template that could be made to work with this jig. There are several measurements and adjustments that need to be made before starting to cut the dovetails. I carefully followed the instructions in the manual that came wi...

Wixey WR25 digital height gauge review

Wixey WR25 digital height gauge review

11-14-2018 02:39 PM by shawnn | 8 comments »

I bought this several years ago and thought I’d write a review. It works great, I use it on every cut on my router table to set bit height and occasionally to set offset from the fence. I also use it on the table saw to set dado or groove heights of the blade. It has magnets in the feet to hold it in place. It reads fractions when within .002” of a particular fraction while in decimal mode, and can be set for fractions of an inch and mm. It can be zeroed for incremental adjustment...

Jet 6"  joiner

Jet 6" joiner

11-13-2018 10:59 AM by DougZ | 5 comments »

I purchased this joiner new in 2016 and like the 8’ version it came in two boxes. Although I did not have to mess with the motor or electric as you explained. Two people are needed to properly and safely assemble the unit. Take your time as there are many steps. Once completed the unit works flawlessly. It has a 4” dust port and soft wood produce bigger chips than hard woods. I am a Jet guy and have several pieces off this brand in my shop. Safety is always necessary in bo...

Jet 8" Jointer, unboxing, assembly, set-up, & initial use

11-11-2018 10:15 PM by MagicalMichael | 1 comment »

Last Spring I sold my General 6” Jointer and my Williams & Hussey molder/planer with the intention of buying the Rikon 12” Jointer/Planer Combo. Then, looking at a heavy summer travel schedule I decided to put the purchase off till the Fall. When I finally went to execute the purchase, in early Oct., I discovered that the $2700 price had leapt to $3600 with the addition of $900 in tariffs. The Jet had gone to $4200. I balked and spent a month or so hand planing poplar for ...

Very satisfied with this saw and it's features

As we all know there are many good miter saws on the market and many models from any one manufacturer. I haven’t used or tested all or any of them, so I can only tell you my experience with this one and the one that it replaced. My last miter saw was a Bosch sliding miter saw with a 12” cut width and with a battery powered laser cut line and work light. I liked this saw, but it had one major weakness, which is that it required a very deep cabinet (or stand if you prefer). My sh...
