Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

06-01-2010 12:59 AM by rhett | 8 comments »

This is a fine set of bits. The quality, workmanship and finish of all my Amana bits has been flawless. Therefore this is not a bad mark about Amana router bits, they are the best you can buy in my opinion. This is however a review of the actual need to have a set of bits like these. I bought this set due to the fact that I have a kitchen on the floor with seven 45 degree corners. Building faceframe cabinets, this equates to 28 faceframe stiles needing a 22.5 degree angle. I assumed t...

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

05-31-2010 02:59 AM by Chris | 18 comments »

We purchased the TS 75 Plunge Saw a few months ago after another regular circular saw fried on me again. I am not a contractor or a woodworking professional; but, I do expect things to work for more than a couple of years. I chose the TS 75 after being fortunate enough to use a friends TS 55 to rough out the pieces for a couple of book cases. Power:The 75 has plenty of power to cut my sheet goods and rough lumber to usable dimensions with lots to spare. Accuracy:With the included tra...

A great 3 hp shaper

A great 3 hp shaper

05-30-2010 09:39 PM by Dustin | 40 comments »

I love this shaper. And it would be even better with a power feeder on it. I have both 3/4” and 1” spindles for this machine. Because most of my shapers use the 3/4” spindle that’s what I use with this machine. It has plenty of power to handle common profiles associated with cabinet door making and I have not been able to slow this machine down. I prefer the fence design to most other Taiwanese/Chinese machines. To get it perfectly parallel to the miter slot I j...

I have had and used this very much and so far i am satasfied with it but the switch that comes with it broke so i just wired a light switch to it. the bed is made of square steel tubing and seems to have a decent but tolerable amount of vibration. only one compliant and that is when you tighten the tailstock the headstock will bend upwards

Bosch GEX 125 AC random orbital sander

Bosch GEX 125 AC random orbital sander

05-30-2010 03:21 PM by Greedo | 9 comments »

i bought this sander over 2 months ago almost by coincidence, before that i actually did most of my sanding with a corded drill and a sanding pad mounted to it! so i got tired of that and wanted something proper.after using some orbital and random orbital festool sanders in woodworking class i fell in love with them! so one day i had enough and i went to a tool store with the idea of buying a festool sander, even if i knew they were outrageously expensive. i came to the shop and 3/4th of the ...

A good quick finish for small projects.

A good quick finish for small projects.

Ever wish you could spray a finish without the complexitys of compressors hoses and the clumsy time it takes to clean out the gun after?Ever wish you didnt have to go through the effort of the already mentioned set up just to spray something like a jewelry box or small items? Well this lacquer is for you!In a convenient spray can just shake it up and your good to go.You can even turn the tip of the nozzle to change the spray from horizontal to vertical.It sprays nice and even however it does...

After my first impressions post which many of you confused with my over all judging of the tool I could wait and more. I grabbed some Walnut and started to make a box. I deiced to not do anything elaborate and use no layout tools but my pencil a 2ft ruler and this little guy.First off I used the triangle to set my saw blade. I put it up on the table and cranked my blade into 45 degrees up againest the triangle. I then put on a digital angle reader and it was dead at 45.I then cut all my parts...

A gem from Porter Cable

A gem from Porter Cable

05-30-2010 08:11 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 8 comments »

I went through a period of having to do A LOT of glue ups to make table tops and wide panels.Not wanting to dowel it all I decided it was time to splurge on a new toy! I picked up this little baby.Right out of the box things were looking great. It comes with a nice hardshell case. Some things about this case I really like are how spacious it is. I hate it when the hardshell cases hardly hold the tool and you have to mash it to get it close. Thats IF you figure out how to get the tool in with ...

First Impressions of the 10 piece set of Japanese Chisels from Grizzly

First Impressions of the 10 piece set of Japanese Chisels from Grizzly

05-26-2010 07:35 AM by David Kirtley | 17 comments »

(Sorry for the picture, it is Grizzly’s picture of these chisels. I would have taken my own but it’s late and I didn’t realize that a review required a picture to post. Mine look just like the ones in the picture.) Well, I have been debating a long time and finally went ahead and ordered the 10 piece Japanese chisel set from Grizzly. I had read other reviews from elsewhere and I figured that I would like to try them out. I have always wanted to try out some Japanese Chis...
