Grizzly G0583Z 1HP Canister Dust Collector

Grizzly G0583Z 1HP Canister Dust Collector

07-23-2010 02:16 AM by Steven H | 8 comments »

Due to Budget and electricity, I am able to purchase 1 HP dust collector.I choose the canister one. It does a good job sucking dust from my Grizzly G055P bandsaw, but I don’t recommend it connecting to table saw, jointer, etc… The collector come with the elbow, try avoid using it. And for the first time visit the local Rockler store I got some Clear Flexible Dust Collection Hose It was on sale . (Note its says online sale only, its not true) Connected to the the col...

harbour frieght drill press table attachment

harbour frieght drill press table attachment

07-23-2010 12:11 AM by ajb | 33 comments »

i was in the market for a drill press table for my new Delta/Rockwell drill press. I was going to make one out of scrap, but after factoring the cost of t-track and clamps this seemed like a decent $20.00 solution. It came out of the box and went directly on no problems.I used it to counter bore the boards for an Adirondack chair that is in process. It umm, sat on my drill press really well and held the stops where they were supposed too and allowed me to speed right through all my drilling.I...

Wood River #6 V3 (Fore Plane)

Wood River #6 V3 (Fore Plane)

07-22-2010 05:38 AM by psfolio | 9 comments »

So, I got home. Cleaned the oil off of the plane and checked it out. Very impressed. Granted I am moving up from a Old Miller Falls plane, Impressed none the less. The fit and finish of this plane is very nice. The handles are super comfortable. Pushing it along the wood just feels right and is effortless. Right out of the box the blade was really sharp. I achieved shavings no problem. The back was very flat and needed minor working. Actually while working the back it was actually hard ...

Very happy I got it!!

Very happy I got it!!

07-21-2010 09:33 AM by Eagle1 | 16 comments »

Well I finished putting it together yeaterday and tunning it up. It went quite well. I did use the stock blade first. Figured might as well use it for a bit. I put the 1” on it a timberwolf. My first cut was on a small 2×4 to check things for alignment. So for the big test. I took a piece of oak 2×6. I took a 1/2 off of it measured it great cut. Took that piece down to 1/4”, still a good cut. Then took it a little farther took that piece down to 1/16” Same great cu...

Excellent value for a riving knife equipped saw

Excellent value for a riving knife equipped saw

07-20-2010 09:24 PM by gbook2 | 17 comments »

This turned out to be a very good saw, but only after experiencing a lot of problems with manufacturing defects. Positives are as follows: the saw is very solid at 270 lbs, and the built in caster set makes moving it very easy there are few cheap plastic parts, everything is cast iron, steel, or aluminum the built in riving knife / splitter is very nice arbor lock is nice when changing blades fence is 30” it has hooks on the side of the saw for all the accessories Sear...

WS3000 Wide Blade Attachment - Fixed!

WS3000 Wide Blade Attachment - Fixed!

07-20-2010 03:42 AM by BigJimAK | 17 comments »

I recently picked up a WorkSharp 3000 after trying my hand at tuning some bevel-up Veritas 3/16” thick A2 steel plane blades. The instructions say to attach the wide blade guide, leveling it with the sharpening sandpaper. Unfortunately, it won’t go down that far, because the inside of some of the supports squeeze against a raised piece of the machine. Sooo… I got out my Dremel and a carborundum cutting wheel and trimmed them back. I’ve attached a picture showing where ...

Another full face shield

Another full face shield

07-19-2010 02:34 PM by Don Butler | 8 comments »

Greg the Whodat just posted his new face shield.I didn’t want to hijack his review, so I’m posting my own. Greg’s shield is a good one and the Triton PRA001 is probably more expensive. But I wanted to explain some of its advantages. Triton saw good to include earmuffs and they’re good one. They can be locked out away from the head for when you want to hear something and when putting the headgear on and off.There is no option for front or back battery location. It...

Great dust mask

Great dust mask

07-19-2010 06:30 AM by longgone | 12 comments »

All I can say is this is one great dust hood. I have used numerous dust masks over the years from the basic cheap disposable masks, the replacable cartridge masks and now this air shield pro dust hood. I do alot of grinding and sanding and have been making more dust than ever lately.The air shield pro is a unit that keeps the dust out of my lungs most importantly…but it also is effective in that no dust gets in my eyes… no more burning watering eyes due to dust.Reviews of earlier ...

One Simply Sweet Saw

One Simply Sweet Saw

07-16-2010 07:11 PM by blockhead | 17 comments »

I purchased this saw about 6 months ago and have been very happy with its performance. I did lots of research and read many reviews on many different saws and also received some great feedback from other LJ’s. I decided that for the money and my intended usage, this offered the most bang for the buck. I have used and own several different Hitachi tools and they have always performed very well for me. In some of the reviews I read, it was said that the sub fence was either bent or broken, p...
