Grizzly G1023SL 10" Table Saw 3 HP Single-Phase 220V Left-Tilt

07-31-2009 07:23 PM by Jon3 | 10 comments »

Disclaimer I’m an amatuer woodworker with about 3 years of experience. I am not a professional, and I’m not paid to do this kind of work. Also, my entire shop measures roughly 11’ x 22’, and includes some storage as well, so I may be more cautious about sizing and portability compared to your average woodworker. IntroductionI originally purchased this saw in June of 2007, and as this is July 2009, I’ve got 2 full solid years of use of it it so far, and it is...

What is wrong with Bostitch?

What is wrong with Bostitch?

07-31-2009 04:36 AM by sboyle | 33 comments »

I bought a compressor not too long ago. It ran good for a while and now the pressure doesn’t build up. From what I read it is the valve assembly. I don’t know if I should replace it or just buy another brand. I thought Bostitch made good tools but this just changed my opinion. I read that one person actually replaced it 3 times. Am I wasting my time with this one? Should I toss it and buy another brand? Any opinions would be appreciated. I think I will be staying away from Bostitc...

Osborne EB-3 Miter Gauge

Osborne EB-3 Miter Gauge

07-31-2009 12:09 AM by Don K. | 20 comments »

I know Schummie just did a review of this miter gauge yesterday….But I just got mine also…and thought I would tell you what I thought so far. First this is a great miter gauge that came out of the box DEAD on accurate. It was extremely easy to assemble and adjust to my saw. Second…other than saying how great it is and accurate it is (Which by the way I already said…lol) I figured I would show a few things. As you can see….it is extremely long even with ...

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

07-30-2009 03:04 AM by jerryz | 6 comments »

I bought this at my WoodCraft Store and have installed it my workshop.I can attest that it stops rusting on my Table Saw and the beauty is that this protection will last 2 years.Also the Capsule VC6-2 will protect a 905 ft3 Volume with a radius of 6 ft so any tools within this area are also protected.I have included the page on the woodcraft and the manufacturer info.I checked other suppliers and found that woodcraft had the better price. http://www.zerust.com/product/ict-vapor-capsules ...

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

07-29-2009 10:51 PM by Mike H | 5 comments »

I got the Kreg Pocket Hole Master system about a year or two ago and have been wanting to add a few more clamps for doing some larger projects under consideration / in the plans. Got a e-mail the other day from woodcraft.com and they had them (Item # 144665) on sale (or Clearance perhaps) for $12.99 each so I ordered (3) of them which just came today. For (3) of them plus shipping cost was $47.96 which I think is a great price as they used to be about $25 per + s/h I believe some of ...

A little pricey, but worth it.

A little pricey, but worth it.

07-29-2009 06:35 AM by bayspt | 8 comments »

Bought this when I did the drawers for the lego table.My Ryobi drill wouldn’t fit in some of the places I needed it too. I also bought the 3/8 chuck for the drill. In my opinion, these tools preform as designed. I have driven 3 1/2” drywall screws into pine 2×4s with no pilot hole with no problem. Plenty of power. The impact driver is a bit noisy, but that is to be expected. For assebly with screws, they simply cant be beat. I find myself reaching for the drill more of...

Tried this bit out on a round tabouret top and shelf and this bit does a great job. No tearout whatsoever because you’re never going against the grain..The attached link explains it pretty well.Definitely recommended.

How to Use your pneumatic tools without a compressor

How to Use your pneumatic tools without a compressor

07-28-2009 10:17 PM by jerryz | 11 comments »

I got this at WoodCraft and had a chance to use it last weekend with my framing nailer.I drove 2 3/4” nails into 2×4 Pressure Treated Lumber to make a frame. Let’s say that it definetively works as stated.With the 9oz CO2 bottle I was able to complete my project, the nails were driven deeply without issues.I also used it with my brad nailer. It works just like a normal regulator and you can adjust the pressure according to your tool requirements.What I like it most is that I ...

Great way to have 220 without Electrician

Great way to have 220 without Electrician

07-28-2009 05:02 AM by reggiek | 21 comments »

I recently needed 220 in my new shop and had not had the chance to wire up the necessary circuits. A friend of mine recommended that I check out this web page and buy one of these units. It uses two 115 sockets to produce the 220 voltage. I tried the unit with my table saw and was pleased to see that the saw acted the same as it had when connected to a dedicated 220 circuit. Since there were two sockets on the adapter I was also able to hook up my 220 planer and run it with the same suc...
