IGAGING digital angle cube

I bought this from Rockler about a week ago, it was on sale for 10$ cheaper than the wixey, so i figured why not, if it sucks i can return it. So far I have to say this thing rocks.Pros:-has really strong magnets in it, wont slip at all off of a highly polished blade.-cheaper than wixey-has hold button for odd position angles-numbers auto flip when you turn it upside down to make it easier to read-takes a 9v battery-has magnets on 3 sides ( i dont know if the wixey does)-has machined metal b...

Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

01-19-2010 12:20 AM by richgreer | 6 comments »

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

I received a 1/4 and 3/8” of these chisels for Christmas and it is a revelation on mortising. These are fantastic additions to my tool chest and I may just walk away from power mortising for good because of them. Read my full review of features on my blog here.

Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

01-18-2010 06:37 PM by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

Disappointment with JET DC-650A 1 Horsepower Dust Collector

Disappointment with JET DC-650A 1 Horsepower Dust Collector

01-18-2010 12:47 AM by Don Newton | 20 comments »

Fellow Jocks, After 25 years of injesting sawdust, a very foolish thing to do, a few months ago I took the plunge and purchased a Jet Dust Collector and AFS-400 Air Filtration System. The Air Filtration System works as it should, but in my opinion the Dust Collector has some design flaws that make me sorry I purchased it. The dust collector is small but should be adequate for my needs. My workshop is in my basement so space is critical and portability is desirable. The Jet DC-650A seeme...

Bent Laminate Walnut Rocker

I recently saw some photos of a rocking chair designed and built by Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture.Jeff has been building and designing furniture for clients for about 25 years in Chicago. Jeff is also the reason I fell in love with designing and building fine furniture. I took a number of classes and worked as a part time apprentice with him for about 7 years. This walnut rocker is truly a masterpiece of his career in my mind. This rocker incorporates both solid and a sign...

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

01-16-2010 05:26 AM by closetguy | 5 comments »

There are 100 different ways to build cabinets. Everyone has their own method that works well for them, and there is really no wrong way as long as they are square and sturdy. The goal is to be able to build them as quickly as possible, without compromising quality. I’m in the middle of a large cabinet job and decided to take a break this afternoon to document this little bit set that I have found invaluable in making my cabinets. Sommerfield Tools has a lot of high quality router bits ...

JET 708315BTC 10" Bench top Table Saw

JET 708315BTC 10" Bench top Table Saw

01-16-2010 03:32 AM by Viktor | 10 comments »

JET 708315BTC 10” Bench top Table SawPrice $250+ When I set off to find a budget and more importantly compact saw, I went through lots of online reviews and ratings. It surprised me that many people pay $200-$300 and expect a professional fine tuned cabinet saw jump right out of the box. Then they give poor rating without even bothering to set riving knife correctly or check blade alignment. I look at it this way: There are things that you can modify, fix or adjust (flimsy fence, ...

Good product, but need beter quality controls

Good product, but need beter quality controls

01-15-2010 11:14 PM by longhornboyd45 | 17 comments »

In my quest to become a better woodworker, i decided it was time to purchase some tools to upgrade my shop (aka Garage). With a few projects under my belt, i decided to quit paying the local Big Box astronomical prices for their s4s lumber and go and get myself a jointer and planer. After browsing numerous sites and reading reviews i opted for the Grizzly GO452 and GO505 would fit my needs as a beginner woodworker. This review will be only of the G0452 jointer as i have yet to put the plan...
