milescraft feather board

milescraft feather board

02-02-2010 09:59 PM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft fetherboard. Most people make their own feather boards but I use this feather board from milescraft and it works pretty good. The problem with the feather boards that people make is that its really hard to adjust them to different tools. This feather board is adjustable to 2 different size miter slots. You can adjust the feather board to work on most cuts. You can use this feather board on a router table, tablesaw, and a bandsaw.

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

02-02-2010 05:41 PM by PetVet | 17 comments »

You can purchase this product from Incra for about $35. I was interested in getting a splitter that I would use, as my rip guard/splitter was a pain to install every time I wanted to rip something.It comes as a kit, with an installation jig, and several splitters of various widths. The instruction sheet was fairly easy to follow. You need a couple pieces of 1/2 inch stock, one for the jig to attach to, and one as a test piece. They have you drill the holes in your saw insert with the prov...

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

02-01-2010 11:09 PM by CharlieD | 11 comments »

Woodcraft has this combination on sale at a good price. I have assembled everything but have yet to use the router. I did turn it on and was impressed with the soft start feature. The plunge mechanism is smooth and works well. So far I’m impressed with the workmanship of the table and fence (nice and heavy) and everything fit together well. The installation instructions could easily be improved but I got through it without too much angst. However, I was missing parts. The flat...

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

02-01-2010 09:09 PM by mnorusis | 5 comments »

I needed to drill shelf pin holes for my closet remodel project. To save time I decided to purchase the woodhaven shelf pin jig and a self-centering shelf pin bit. At the local woodcraft, the only 1/4” option was this Snappy bit. It got the job done, but was a bit of a pain. The first side I drilled went rather smoothly, and I ran down the two lines in decent time. However, when I got to the second side of the shelf unit, the shavings kept getting clogged in the retracting self-...

Good for short term use. Lousy materials.

Good for short term use. Lousy materials.

My Grizzly H7827 Drill Press Table is a little over a year old now, and it is useless. Well not exactly…There ARE some useful parts on it, knobs, thread inserts, T track and suck, but the main material, the melamine coated, well I guess it is supposed to be MDF, but this stuff seems more like compressed cardboard than MDF… The thread inserts that hold it down to the cast iron DP table simply fall out of the pressboard given any longish term exposure to humid environments, like,...

26" Of Awesome

It’s big, it’s heavy, but it is possible to move it. Just don’t try taking it out of your truck and pulling it into your shop like I did. It’s very dangerous!I had to take off my door to fit into my shop lol. Good times!Anyway, so it weighs a lot and it’s big so your going to need casters to put it on if you want to move it at all. This sander is very powerful with it’s 5hp motor. I can take off quite a bit of material in one pass using 80 and 120 grit...

Helps Keep Shop Socket clutter to a mininum

Helps Keep Shop Socket clutter to a mininum

01-29-2010 05:04 PM by David Craig | 7 comments »

As I probably have over-stated many times, I have a small basement shop and I will frequently look for items that can either reduce tool clutter or increase safety. I have a number of shop items that require wrenches or sockets to change settings, swap items, perform assembly, etc. When it comes to car maintenance, I love my socket set, but when I am working downstairs, I find them a bit of a pain. Sockets drop to the floor and hide themselves and they can sometimes be a danger because they a...

Great Saw with Some Setup Hassles

Great Saw with Some Setup Hassles

01-28-2010 11:54 PM by VanLewis | 8 comments »

My sales rep at Laguna was great: helpful, knowledgable, willing to deal, patient with some difficult delivery demands to my very remote shop. The saw, which weighs I think about 600 lbs crated, arrived on a truck with no lift gate. First thing the driver asks is “you got a forklift?”. Uh oh. Two hours later, with no sprained backs, we had it off the truck. You can use a pair of Jorgensen bar clamps as a reverse winch! But I don’t recommend it. Setup was a bit of a h...

leveling casters

leveling casters

01-28-2010 10:34 PM by Jim K | 3 comments »

I’m building a mobile base for my table saw and in places the floor is not level. i found these casters and i thought what a nice idea. The best of both i move my table saw around my small space then just turn those phenolic handles and with a 4 foot level set my table saw anywhere i want to. The kit comes with hardware for 3/4 inch wide sides but I’m using 2×4’s so a trip to the hardware store to get longer bolts was all it needed. The directions were easy. I would rec...

Great Intro Shaper

Great Intro Shaper

01-28-2010 06:01 PM by Dustin | 16 comments »

After owning these units for a few years now I think it might be a good idea to rewrite this review. Just starting into the cabinet business this machine will satisfy most of your needs. It is easily powerful enough to run shallow profiles, but when it comes to raised panel cuts you either have make sure your cutter is exceptionally sharp or you’ll have to run it through a few passes. The fence is superior to many shapers that I have used in the past, however, getting it parallel t...
