What Delta says they are trying to improve, and will get it right.

Update Delta finally made contact with me!!!!!!! I was suprised when I answered the phone and the caller said he was from Delta, seen as it was in the evening outside of normal business hours. He agreed that they have been having some problems, but they are trying to get everything ironed out.He agreed that evrything shoild have been there as one shipment. I didn’t mean for it to sound like I figured the mobile base is part of the saw package. It was added as a option, my point is n...

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

07-01-2009 12:20 AM by handi | 1 comment »

I love my Worktunes earmuffs, and use them with my iPhone in the shop to listen to my music and podcasts. But this time of year, they get mighty warm! So when I saw that AO Safety had come out with earplugs that could be used with my MP3, I had to try them out. As expected, these are much cooler to wear in the heat than the big earmuffs, but they are not an exact replacement. The Blockades are rated at 24 Db instead of the 29Db that the Worktunes are rated. 5Db may not seem like much, but ...

Wooden Hand Planes

Wooden Hand Planes

06-30-2009 11:31 PM by Kent Shepherd | 4 comments »

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last Friday. I thought I was doing really well when I brought Roses home for her. Then I opened my new HNT Gordon Spoke Shave (The one I’ve been lusting after for quite some time) My first thought was—Oh crap, I only got her roses. I must do better next year. She bought me the 1/2” Shoulder Plane for Christmas last year (and no, I wasn’t that good——She’s just an incredible woman) Anyway, back to the review. ...

Digital Height Gauge

Digital Height Gauge

06-30-2009 08:51 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 3 comments »

Some indulgence on my part and to treat my self to more digital technology.This height gauge (although by no means a requirement in the shop) sure makes height adjustment a breeze and fun for saw blades, dado stack and router bits. The read out can display inches, mm and fractional with ABS and hold functions.It is extremely solid built with heavy thick base that has magnets. The rest/measuring arm is also ¼ inch thickSo it rests nice on the blades and bits. Has a smooth travel with no play a...

New use for an old tool

New use for an old tool

06-29-2009 05:50 PM by Sam Butler | 12 comments »

I purchased an Shopsmith (SS) 25 years ago when I first started woodworking. It was a good start but I quickly realized that I needed stand alone tools. The table saw aspects of the Shopsmith was the most inadequate. After selling the SS I missed the drill press, horizontal boring, lathe and disc sander. So a few years ago I purchased a Mark V for a few hundred dollars. It did not have the upgrade to the 510 which is why I was able to buy it for a low price. It was great to have the old frien...

Square Joints with a Hand Plane

Square Joints with a Hand Plane

06-28-2009 04:33 PM by CreekWoodworker | 8 comments »

I’ve had trouble getting perfectly square leg tapers and joints with my hand planes so decide to try out the Veritas Jointer Fence sold by Lee Valley. I was a little leery of it since it is attached to the side of a hand plane by magnets …can magnets really hold or will the fence pop off with every swipe? It comes with a stop that screw that fits into pre-drilled threaded holes in the fence (NO holes or screws into the plane). There are two sets of stop positions in front and...

Best scroll saw I have owned

Best scroll saw I have owned

06-28-2009 06:08 AM by Jamie | 11 comments »

I have worn out a delta and a Dewalt scroll saw in the past ten years and recently aquired this saw. It is the same parallel link design as the dewalt, the only real difference being more of the parts on the dewalt are stamped where on the excalibur they are machined. The table is aluminum and will not rust. This saw runs smooth. I highly recomend this to anyone unless they have a problem with purple tools.

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

06-27-2009 10:13 PM by Doug | 9 comments »

I got this saw from a local news paper ad, I have had a number of craftsman radial arm saws, didn’t really care for them to much, kinda cheap made !, But now mine were newer saws and i know the old ones were real nice. This one was built in 1960-1962. It wasn’t in the best shape in the world so i dissmantled it and restored it, motor bearings,wires,switches,ETC. Avery nice saw, very acurate !

An oldie but a goodie

An oldie but a goodie

06-26-2009 11:09 PM by CutNRun | 20 comments »

I have always liked radial arm saws. My first power tool purchase was a Craftsman radial arm saw. I only had the one saw and I could do most operations with it – ripping, cross-cutting, mitering; all achievable. The Craftsman (long gone) couldn’t hold a candle to the accuracy of this saw. The arm is cast iron that was aged prior to having the ways machined. The motor was a special built unit that has a flat bottom for extra clearance over the cutting surface. I purchased thi...

I aint fraid of ladders no more

I aint fraid of ladders no more

06-26-2009 12:57 AM by Zuki | 9 comments »

I hate ladders, especially extension ladders. The height does not bother me . . . it’s the sudden stop at the end of a fall that does. When I decided to start our rear deck I became a little apprehensive as it is 11 feet off the ground over the stairwell going into the basement (another 8 ft). But then I found Stand-off arms by LITE. I picked them up at Canadian Tire for $25. There is nothing bad that I can say. The ladder is super stable and offers extra mobility to work agains...
