SD508 Freud 8" Dado Set

SD508 Freud 8" Dado Set

01-03-2011 01:14 AM by Ken90712 | 9 comments »

I was making some candleholders and my Dado Blades were junk and chipping wood on every cut. Then my local Rockler Store sent me a coupon with 40% off any single item excluding Power Tools. Sweet!, I tell Blondie I’m off to Rockler to save some money… LOL…. The set is $199.00 so that’s 80 bucks off. She brainwashed my sometime ago to always look for sales. Another story sometime, LOL…. Man, I thought my Forrest Woodworker 2 Blade was something. This set is more than impressive! Th...

Undersized Router bits for Plywood.

Undersized Router bits for Plywood.

01-03-2011 12:53 AM by Ken90712 | 9 comments »

I bought these only because they were 1/2 off during Xmas at Woodcraft. I usually just messed with my dado set, or walked it on the router table. These bits match the plywood that is undersized that we all buy from stores. It makes the joints perfectly and very tight! This makes it very quick to cut in perfect fitting dados on the router table quickly without messing with you table saw. The bits are for ¼, ½, & ¾ inch plywood.Very nice set to have on hand and would recommend them to you.

Dust Collector.

Dust Collector.

01-03-2011 12:39 AM by Ken90712 | 9 comments »

The only reason this did not get a 5 Star, is the Directions & the casters! I have to get new ones as they’re junk! Why they would not include better casters, I have no idea. For the money and CFM rating along with the 1 Micron Bag being standard, I felt this was the best bang for your buck. At $259.00 plus shipping I thought it would be better than trying to make a Harbor Freight one work. Not there is anything wrong with a HF one for those of my Fellow LJ’s that have them. I have be...

A Handy Addition To A Single Stage Dust Collection System

A Handy Addition To A Single Stage Dust Collection System

01-02-2011 11:00 PM by Dustmite97 | 7 comments »

I have been using a single stage dust collection system for over a year now and have found that the bottom bag fills up quickly and the top filter bag gets really messy. I finally upgraded to a two stage system and it works great. The lid I use has two ports and the port that connects to the tool has an L-shaped elbow that connects to the underside of the port. I have the lid on a heavy duty Rubbermaid garbage can but might upgrade to a deeper can sometime. After doing a bunch of planing and ...

A Great And Simple Little Machine

A Great And Simple Little Machine

01-02-2011 10:39 PM by Dustmite97 | 3 comments »

I have had this sander for almost a year now and it has been great. I always needed a disc sander but always had trouble trying to pick one. There are many similar ones to the sander that I have and there are also combination units with a disc and a belt. I decided I really only needed the disc since I only sand wooden toy parts, bandsaw boxes, and for shaping plus I have limited shop space. I decided to choose this sander. The 12 inch disc makes for lots of sanding surface which is a big adv...

Nice scraper but difficult sweet spot

Nice scraper but difficult sweet spot

01-02-2011 06:17 PM by Chelios | 16 comments »

I got this scraper plane to see if I could get better results during surface prep for finishing. It cost $235 from the Lie Nielsen web page. The finish on the plane is flawless. It is a beauty and coming out of the box it created a lot of anticipation on what it was going to do for me. It has a very nice heft to it and a great blade. I honed the blade sharp like I do for all my planes and I started working with it. Right away I realized that this scraper was not going to be easy to ma...

Aftermarket Fein blades

Aftermarket Fein blades

01-02-2011 10:39 AM by gko | 1 comment »

Imperial Blades I’ve had my Fein Multimaster for about two years now and it has been the tool that gets occasional use but was invaluable when it was either the only way to do something or made it so much easier to do a cut. BUT the blades were so expensive and didn’t seem to last as long as they cost. So looking for a cheaper alternative to the blades I did a little surfing and found Imperial Blades which have just been picked up by Woodcraft. They weren’t at the loca...

For The Money Unlikely To Be Beat, But Must Have Sense Of Humor When Assembling

For The Money Unlikely To Be Beat, But Must Have Sense Of Humor When Assembling

01-02-2011 02:50 AM by MattMcC | 22 comments »

So, we will be moving into a new house this summer and I will be moving my woodworking tools to the basement from the garage, where opening the garage door and running a shop vac provided adequate ventiliation and dust collection. Not so in the new basement, so I decided I would invest in a dust collector. After reading many reviews, it seemed that the Harbor Freight 2HP DC unit was a fair value. I decided to take the harbor freight plunge given the cost of name brand units and with my fin...

A 90% Positive Review

A 90% Positive Review

01-02-2011 02:39 AM by newbiewoodworker | 7 comments »

Using money I had gotten for my Birthday(ahead of time) and Christmas(gift cards for Lowes.) I bought a Porter Cable Drill and Circular Saw combo kit… $90… thats $10 cheaper than just the drill. Granted I did give up the Hard Case for the Soft Bag. It seemed common sence. I dont use the bag/cases much anyway… So alright, its no DeWalt. But its better than what I am used to. Now, yea, I have trouble with almost everything D/PC, but I figure maybe Ill have better luck ...
