A useful tool for the small shop

Inverted pin routers. This machine is amazing. You can use bits from 3/16” diameter all the way through 3/4” diameter. You can use router bits on it and you can cut in three different depth settings. You can change the rpm’s and you can cut a variety of different thicknesses. It is a machine that is all steel with superb welds. You do not need to be a rocket scientist to run it and you can start making money with it the first day. It has a 36” throat capacity and a 1...

Very good inexpensive 12" disc sander on sale

Very good inexpensive 12" disc sander on sale

09-03-2010 12:39 PM by Toolz | 10 comments »

I reviewed this online and purchased it at my local Harbor Freight yesterday. I cut splines a little proud when making boxes and this sander is ideal for sanding the sides of the boxes smooth before moving on to a ROS and finish sanders. I set it up and used it on two boxes yesterday and it was a good price vs. utility decision. The original price was $129.99 on sale for $119.99 and with a 20 o/o coupon final price was $ 95.99 before taxes. I would give it 4 1/2 stars rather than 5 because t...

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Shop Fox W1671 3/4 HP Heavy-duty Mortising Machine

Shop Fox W1671 3/4 HP Heavy-duty Mortising Machine

09-01-2010 11:05 PM by Tom Coster | 14 comments »

Ok, I admit it, I am a tool junkie. What I lack in skill I make up in tool savvy. That said I have never owned a mortise machine so take that into consideration when putting any value to this review. I did do some serious research before buying as this will be my last tool for a while as my wife has threaten to cave my skull in with a cast iron frying pan while I sleep if I buy any more. Let’s get to the heart of the matter; The Shop Fox is inexpensive. I paid $245 + $44 shipping at Grizzly t...

Milescraft Sign Crafter

Milescraft Sign Crafter

08-30-2010 09:40 AM by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody here is a review of the the Milescraft sign crafter. I have had the sign crafter for about 7 weeks and it works great. I did a video on the milescraft sign crafter in Episode 76 MIlescraft Sign Crafter. Its basically a jig that you use to cut signs with your router. You can cut signs up to 36 in long. Its important that the surface your router bit is referencing off of doesnt move or your not going to get an accurate cut. Once you clamp everything down the sign crafter ...

Kreg Multi-Mark adjustable square

Kreg Multi-Mark adjustable square

08-29-2010 02:32 AM by Kerry Drake | 17 comments »

My wife actually grabbed this off of the shelf at the Big Blue Box Store while I was searching for a box of pocket hole screws. The body is the blue plastic that Kreg loves so much, and the 6” rule is of decent thickness. I have been using this for the past couple days and I really do kind of like it. If it had a 12” rule instead of a 6” rule I might have given this 5 stars instead of just 4.

Although mostly used in the auto industry they are very handy in the wood shop.The 1/4’’ angle die grinder with a 3M Roloc head installed. the discs install with 1/2 turn on 1/2 turn offLots of sanding discs available the 36 and 50 grit are great for smoothing and blending edges on anything with curves. Fast, noisy, and dusty. FND Can’t have everything.Different grits are available in 2” , 3”, 4” diameter the Scotch Brite pads, great for cleaning up rusty...

WOW, what can I say. This is another pleasant surprise from Freud.In my search for a super thin kerf saw blade under 20. The Demo demon @ $15.00 although not designed for table saw and ripping gets my 5 star.Gives extremely clean cut with not too slow but steady feed rate and at 1/16 kerf, No waste and oh my, almost no dust. You can see the cut is practically glue ready.Since this is 7 ¼ blade and super thin, I don’t recommend using it on any stock thicker than 3/4 It may deflect but you do g...

General International 10-105M1 1.5 hp Dust Collector

General International 10-105M1 1.5 hp Dust Collector

08-25-2010 10:06 PM by Manitario | 10 comments »

I bought this dust collector a few weeks ago after much research into dust collection units. Ideally, I’d loved to have been able to afford the cost (in money and shop space) of a cyclone dust collector, but it wouldn’t have fit into my budget or 13×22’ garage. Initially I was interested in the Delta 50-760 after reading some good reviews, however the owner of the local tool store convinced me that the General was a better unit from what he’d heard from his custom...

In search of thin kerf Rip blade

In search of thin kerf Rip blade

08-24-2010 08:39 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 7 comments »

I already own what I and many consider the best ripping saw blade in industry (( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/976 )) but there is one disadvantage with using that, the kerf is THICK. so although that’s my go to blade when I need to put a perfect edge on a long board, I needed a thin kerf blade for rip cuts without the need to mortgage the house.I decided to go real cheap and give one of those Frued 7” diablo blades a try when I saw this from Ridgid. So I decided to give it a chance. It has ...
