Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

09-30-2009 02:18 AM by dfarr | 13 comments »

I’ve always struggled with the cheap blade adjustment cranks (pictured right) on my 70s vintage table saw. I found these cast iron handwheels (H3189 – Cast Iron Handwheel – 6”) and chromed handles (H3205 – 4” x 3/8”-16) on the Grizzly web site. The handwheels were only $8.50 and the handles were $2.95. This was a great deal compared to other places I’ve looked at similar handwheels. The wheels come with a small center hole that I had to bore ou...

This baby really cuts

This baby really cuts

I have only done a little re-sawing but this bade cut 6” thick maple like butter. The finish was good but I am working to get it better. It went through the maple as fast as I could feed it.

My Custom Branding Iron

My Custom Branding Iron

09-28-2009 11:53 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

I was lucky enough to win this branding iron in a contest this summer on Lumberjocks. You can check out my winning contest entry on My Lumberjocks Blog. I’ve had one of these on my tool list for a long time. I’d look at them, but I never took any action. I wished I’d bought one of these many years ago now. I highly recommend this tool to all Woodworkers, & Carvers. When you order this tool you can talk directly to the owner Terry Desilets. He is ver...

Mule Cabinetmaker Accusquare Rip Fence

Mule Cabinetmaker Accusquare Rip Fence

09-28-2009 03:57 AM by jeffreythree | 15 comments »

All of the sizes are the same other than the rail lengths. I opted for the 25” one because my Delta Homecraft TS is pretty small. It came with only a few token wads of newdpaper to protect it, and the main knob was broken because of it. This one uses a rear rail, which I like and have not mounted yet. It also works well so far without the rear rail attached. The first pic shows what it came with: a bag of hardware, a rear rail, the fence, the front rail, and no instructions. You c...

Mule Cabinetmaker M-21 Miter Gauge Fence

Mule Cabinetmaker M-21 Miter Gauge Fence

09-28-2009 03:23 AM by jeffreythree | 1 comment »

I needed a miter gauge fence and decided to order this one with the rip fence I ordered. It looked to be well made and better than any wood add-on I made. I was disappointed when it came in with no packing material, and, sure enough, one of the plastic knobs was busted into 3 pieces. The first pick shows everything that was in the box(except for a little instruction sheet). Today I took apart my trusty old Delta miter guage to drill some holes to mount the fence(it appears to fit more mod...

Great for something, but not for spreading glue!

Great for something, but not for spreading glue!

09-28-2009 01:42 AM by thiel | 14 comments »

I hate the idea of tossing out acid brushes after a few uses (they’re steel!) and I’ve been looking for alternatives (for the record, there aren’t any :-) so I bought these little dealios. Long story short, they are TERRIBLE for spreading glue. They act more like a squeegee—pulling glue away from your intended target. Which brings us to what they ARE good for, and that’s scraping glue off once its skinned over. These things are a nice plastic, they are g...

R4510 with PICS!

Hey Everyone - I’ve never posted here before, but I did a lot of research here before buying a replacement for my beloved cast iron Ridgid table saw. It had served me well through a major renovation, but now that the project is complete, I wanted something I could more easily tuck out of the way. I’d narrowed it down to the Ridgid 2410LS and the Bosch 4100, and was leaning toward the Bosch when I dropped in at my local Home Depot. The Ridgid rep happened to be there on a Sat...

Top Saver works as advertised

Top Saver works as advertised

This is an excerpt from my blog posting about restoring my Unisaw. I thought it worked as a review. You can read the original/view the original post HERE. I would have given the product 5 stars except that while it worked much better than I expected in reality it is only as good as the amount of elbow grease you use with it. Enjoy! Where da hail did you get those glasses? You look like yo Aint Bea in Shreveport. Scrubbing away. .Top Saver first pass Top Saver 3 Honey! Top Save...

just purchased and installed the igaging MAGNETIC REMOTE DIGITAL ROUTERLIFT, bought this from Eagle America, it was about $20 cheaper than the Wixey, can’t say it is better, I have not tried the Wixey, but thought I would try this one.the installation instructions were not the best I have seen, but after studying them it was easy enough to figure out, the worst part was having to drill and tap holes in my Jessem router lift so it could be mounted, I broke one tap, so I had to move the p...

Carpenter Jeans Made in America

Carpenter Jeans Made in America

09-26-2009 01:46 AM by firecaster | 17 comments »

Ok, I know this isn’t about a tool or gadget but most of us wear pants when we work in the shop. Although a couple of LJs I’m not sure of. We hear a lot about the US manufacturing going over seas. These jeans are made in America, with American grown cotton. Actually close to where I like to trout fish in Blue Ridge Georgia. Besides that there are several other things I like about these jeans:1. Comfort. They fit me well. There’s plenty of room in the legs and seat for the...
