Pretty good deal

Pretty good deal

1912 days ago by peabody | 16 comments »

I want to start off by saying that for all spindle or pen work, this lathe is perfect, the adjustment speeds are great and it is a breeze to operate. The problem is that when you try to turn anything larger than about 3” the whole machine goes to crap. I broke my shop’s midi while turning a 3.5” bowl and I bent the shaft, meaning that nothing can be turned on it ever again. As long as you use this for smaller objects it will serve you well although if you plan on using it...

Penn State Industries Temp 142CX Dust Collector

1913 days ago by ND2ELK | 13 comments »

The dust collection unit that I chose for my 14 X 21 shop was the Temp142CX from Penn State Industries. Some specifications and reasons for picking this unit are as follows: 2 HP, 220V Motor14” Impeller – 6 Fin½ Micron Filter CartridgesUp to 12 DropsUp to 30 Ft. RunsUp to 1200 Sq. Ft.5 Yr. Warranty I used the economy 26 GA duct work which was noticeably heavier than the stores. Penn State had everything I needed to put this unit in. There was nothing that I ordered that they did not hav...

Makita LS1214F 12-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Makita LS1214F 12-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

1913 days ago by ND2ELK | 13 comments »

I just bought this Makita 12” sliding miter saw and cannot say enough good about this saw. I went to Acme Tool an hour and a half away in Cedar Rapids so I could play with the Makita, Bosch and Dewalt miter saws. I felt the Makita had the smoothest slides of all three and liked the way the slides are on the bottom of the saw. There was no movment whatsoever and it just seemed like the best quality saw. It was right on the nuts out of the box and I cut all my trim for the shop with it. I would...

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

1913 days ago by ND2ELK | 4 comments »

I just bought a Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turbo vacuum. The features are: 6-gals, compact, quiet (60dB), variable speed, 6 wheels for stability, cloth filter bag that extracts 5 micron dust, 16’ hose and cord. You can also plug your equipment into it and when you start up you machine it automatically turns the vac on and off when using the machine. It is a little pricey but will worth it. I highly recommend this vaccum.

Mortise Pal Review:  Highly Recommended

Mortise Pal Review: Highly Recommended

1913 days ago by newTim | 6 comments »

January 23rd, 2009Review: Mortise Palhttp://www.mortisepal.com/ I highly recommend this jig. It is well machined and works exactly as shown; a rare achievement in woodworking, I know. I purchased the original MP a few months back and quickly discovered it would only fit 2 1/4” (?) maximum. Well they must have heard some feedback and they came out with Version 2.0 which will straddle 3” stock and has a couple of other improvements. Things I look for in tools include: Is it safe? Is i...

Review of ClearVue 1800LH

Review of ClearVue 1800LH

1914 days ago by Padre | 35 comments »

I purchased a ClearVue cyclone 1800LH for my shop about two months ago. Had torn muscles in my shoulder, so put it up a month ago, had shoulder surgery, and finally got it wired and turned on for the first time today. First Impressions: The unit came complete, packaged extremely well. Everything labeled, wrapped, boxed, re-wrapped. I unpacked everything and nothing was dented, broken, scratched or otherwise in any condition but brand new. The system also came with a remote control and...

Quick and Easy Shelf Pin Jig

Quick and Easy Shelf Pin Jig

1915 days ago by mart | 3 comments »

I ordered Rockler’s Jig It shelf pin drilling jig when I got an order for 26 feet of built in bookcases. I had never had to run this many holes (2652) before and had always used a piece of pegboard and a small vertical drill jig in the past. The Rockler jig is a clear plastic plate with a metal square tubing guide bar that registers the jig either against the inside of a cabinet or on the edge of an board for the side of a yet to be assembled cabinet. There are two rows of holes and ...

Improved splitter for my Saw

Improved splitter for my Saw

1915 days ago by marcb | 6 comments »

I have an older saw with a horrible splitter. I’ve often gone without or used one of those cheap snap in plastic things for ZCI if I had to have one for serious ripping. This all changed with a piece of knowledge, part number 1349941 from the Delta parts website. This easily installs into Delta saws (even my old Rockwell) and someone made a website about installing it onto a jet. The splitter is thick, so it is not for use with thin blades. A knurled nut makes it easy to rem...

He then talks about the different ways to guide a router and follows that up with a discussion on hand held routing and using a router table. Although he does not tell you how ...

Put them on your short list

Put them on your short list

1919 days ago by Zuki | 1 comment »

This is a review of Chipping Away – http://www.chippingaway.com/ From their site: Chipping Away began operation in 1992 when Pop (Dennis Moor) took an early retirement and decided to keep a few cans of beans in the cupboard by means of selling his carvings. He soon found himself being asked to teach chip carving as well as present seminars at some of the local wood shows. Rogers Public Television asked him to do a television series of 45 individual shows in which he appeared as H...
