Excellent performance at a decent price

DISCLAIMER:This is the 1 and only spray system I’ve ever used/seen so take this with a grain of salt. this review is based on my expectations and experience from this unit. I have been brushing/wiping finish, but always wanted to spray for the benefits of:1. time (faster process, and faster drying time – also less contamination probability of the finish)2. ease and effort (less sanding, and less effort applying finish) I got this unit used off of craigslist for a bargain pr...

A Great Dado set..regardless of the price!

A Great Dado set..regardless of the price!

07-04-2010 01:07 AM by Brad_Nailor | 26 comments »

I know this dado set has been reviewed a few times but I just wanted to put up my two cents about this set. I got it for a great price from Rockler..I paid about $70 bucks with shipping. The box it comes in is nothing to write home about…in almost every review I have read on this set, the reviewer comments on the crappy box, but then I care more about whats in the box..I can make a damn box…OK I’m getting side tracked…here is what it looks like.. So I went out a...

A mobile base for Canadians

A mobile base for Canadians

07-04-2010 01:01 AM by swayze | 8 comments »

I picked up this mobile base a couple of weeks ago for my new Grizzly 513p bandsaw. It was on sale for 65% off the regualr price of $99.99 so I thought what do I have to lose and I didn’t expect much. But the base performs excellent on the 350lb saw. The only negative about it is that in order to operate the cams that lifts the base up so the casters can make contact requires a little help by slightly pushing upward on the saw. But still very easily managed. The base is easily move...

Good, Solid Sander

Good, Solid Sander

07-03-2010 05:59 PM by blockhead | 12 comments »

This is my first review so please bear with me. I’ll try to keep it straight and to the point. I purchased this sander about 3 months ago and to this point, I must say that I am quite impressed. This is a well built, solid machine with plenty of power for what I use it for. I use the 4” x 36” belt mostly for shaping handles for my boxes and the 8” disc mostly for rounding the corners on the boxes and lids. The 5 amp, 3/4hp, 3450 rpm motor has easily handled these tasks and a few others I have...

My new bosch PS20 pocket driver

My new bosch PS20 pocket driver

07-02-2010 07:50 PM by lanwater | 18 comments »

This is a tool I picked up 2 weeks ago after my 18V power driver would not charge anymore.I originally set to buy a Dewalt from Lowes but ended up buying the Bosch PS20. While shopping there, I noticed they had the smaller footprint driver I have seen in many magazines. As an owner of other Bosch tools I decided to grab the Bosch PS20. Using it last week during assembly of one of my project was a delight. I liked it so much I decided to share a good tool with the LJ community. The packa...

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

07-02-2010 06:48 PM by ChunkyC | 7 comments »

I purchased the Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit because a friend wants me to inlay the Wisconsin “Running W” logo into a lid for him. The kit comes complete with everything that you need to get started routing inlays. I had to make a trip to the hardware store for M4×12 pan head screws to mount the universal base plate to my Freud router. It comes with 7” Universal Base Plate with the Turnlock system, three guide bushing, 4 templates with multiple cutouts, ...

Workshop Essentials 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mega-Bundle

07-02-2010 05:09 PM by TheDane | 5 comments »

I have seen a number of Steve Maskery’s videos online here on LumberJocks and on YouTube. I liked what I saw in the clips he has posted, so I decided to order some of his DVD’s. I bought the “Workshop Essentials 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mega-Bundle” (49.99 GBP), and am really pleased with my purchase. The 5 DVD set contains hours of material covering a wide range of jigs and fixtures for table saws, track saws, routers, and band saws. I have already built one jig (fine...

Drum Sanders are magic...

07-01-2010 04:25 AM by Wiley | 28 comments »

This has been my dream tool since about two weeks after I started woodworking. I had a 9” tabletop bandsaw, a $25 Craigslist router, and a bunch of oak flooring that was in the garage when we bought the house. I managed to resaw that wood flooring into closish-to1/4” stock, and then I sat there with a Black & Decker Mouse trying to get rid of the saw marks. It generally took about an hour per 2”x12” piece of wood. Then I was at Rockler one day for my weekly clas...

Low Cost Edge Banding that Works

Low Cost Edge Banding that Works

06-30-2010 04:38 AM by jayman7 | 5 comments »

First, let me say that I have never applied an iron-on edge banding before. This was for making a series of drawer fronts using red oak plywood. I’ve done solid wood edges in the past, but not using a pre-glued veneer. I initially wanted to try the edge banding available at the typical woodworking stores, but it worked out to be about $0.66 / linear foot. I saw the Band-It edge banding at the big box stores for only $0.26 / linear foot so I had to give it a try. I applied it with...

My New Delta 6" jointer

My New Delta 6" jointer

06-29-2010 09:59 PM by lanwater | 20 comments »

I just purchased the Delta 6” professional jointer.I did not consider better 8” jointer for mainly one reason: I do not have enough space in my garage / shop. I also did not have the luxury of actually seeing all these jointers before purchase. I went to several stores (Woodcraft, Rockler …) but none had any on display. They all volunteer to order it for me.Among several jointers that were suggested were the Delta 6” professional jointer, the jet 6” jointer and the grizzly jointer. I went f...
