Santa Brought Me  A Landshark

Santa Brought Me A Landshark

1934 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 4 comments »

Or, more accurately a "Shark Guard" by LeeWay Workshop. Installation I’ve only had the opportunity to install this today, so I haven’t really had a chance to fully put it through its paces. However, so far I am impressed. The improvised packaging the unit arrived in was demonstrative of its small shop origins; the actual contents, however, were not. Installation was straightforward using the directions provided on the site. They warned that some owners of my saw (Craftsman 2...

Grizzly Band Saw G0513x2

Grizzly Band Saw G0513x2

1935 days ago by Hawkster | 7 comments »

Just purchased the go513×2, picked it up myself at the Muncy store as I only live an hour away, be prepared as it comes almost fully assembled, bring a lot of rope, the guys in the loading dock very helpful, as they laid it down on it’s spleen for me. Also purchased the shop fox mobile base, and listened to a few friends, and purchased the timberwolf blades.I have owned a lot of band saws, as I do a lot of re-sawing, but I have to admit, this one put a smile on my face. Cutting ...

New worksharp for old chisels

New worksharp for old chisels

1935 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 18 comments »

In reviving my shop after many years I got a workshart 3000. I used to sharpen my chisels by hand on sandpaper and stones and got marginal results because you really have to work at it to get them the way you want. This worksharp really makes it easy. I mean really easy. Old dull chipped chisels took maybe 15 minutes each and I’ll be able to touch them up in a few seconds anytime I want to now.The unit is not cheap but not as expensive as some units. I got mine from Sears for $189 but y...

wow! don't know how i got along without this

1936 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 11 comments »

i got this digital protractor for christmas and since i got it i have used it for everything! to adjust my squares, set up tools, check glue ups! it is just a great little tool. so much for burning on the table saw for crosscuts. i found that my good square was 89.9 and thats why i was getting burning. once adjusting it to 90 with the wixey no burning at all! its just wonderful and it helps a lot too. also there are magnets on it that help in tool setup because it attracts to the blade and mi...

Jet JFM-5 Initial Assemble and Use Review

Jet JFM-5 Initial Assemble and Use Review

1937 days ago by jcecil | 5 comments »

Like many others I recently purchased the Jet floor mortiser from CPO for 499-150 in Jet Rebates, so first off it was a fantastic deal that drove me to the tool. The tool was drop shipped directly from Jet. The tool arrived in two boxes that were on a pallat and shrink wrapped with little to no damage more than a small knick on the cardboard, so A+ to Jet and the freight company for packing and shipping. One box contains the stand and weighs in the 40 lbs neighborhood, then comes the oth...

More bowls less shavings

More bowls less shavings

1937 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 4 comments »

I was given the opportunity to test out the Steussy 6” bowl saw and I was impressed. I have used several different coring systems to get multiple bowls from one blank but always felt that the cost of most of these would keep most turners from purchasing. Dick Steussy has created an inexpensive tool that gives even novice turners the opportunity to get two or three bowls out of one blank.The bowl saw has a good handle to hold what looks like sawsall blade on steroids. You mount your b...

Grizzly G0513X2 17" Bandsaw 2HP w/Cast Iron Trunnion

Grizzly G0513X2 17" Bandsaw 2HP w/Cast Iron Trunnion

1937 days ago by Padre | 20 comments »

Just received this on Monday. It came via UPS Freight, and I paid $39 extra for the lift gate service. I highly recommend this service since this saw is a beast! 1. It came in one of flimsiest ‘crates’, if you can call it that, that I have ever seen. This saw weighs in at 325 pounds, more like 425 pounds, and this crate was built for maybe 200 pounds max. 2. The email instructions tell you to inspect the crate for damage before signing. I did this, saw nothing, and sig...

SawStop 10-Inch Contractors Saw with 50" rails and 30" outfeed table Assembly

SawStop 10-Inch Contractors Saw with 50" rails and 30" outfeed table Assembly

1937 days ago by Padre | 11 comments »

My saw arrived last week and my sons had to go pick it up at WoodCraft for me since I had shoulder surgery last Tuesday. Well, I felt good enough yesterday to start assembling my new SawStop Contractors table saw. The first thing I noticed is that it was boxed, packed and labeled very clearly. Each box had what was inside clearly printed on the outside so there was no guessing, no “eenie-meenie-miney-mo” type activity. I ordered:10” contractor sawmobile basecast iron...

Fine woodworking Archive 1975-2008

1938 days ago by a1Jim | 5 comments »

Hey Gang I have subscribed to up to 12 different Magazines at one time and My favorite has been Finewoodworking.I know each woodworker has there own favorite . The truth of the matter is I have complete collections of Fine woodworking , Fine Home building , Wood , Woodsmith, and woodshop News plus a couple hundred books. If you think that takes up a lot of room your right. When they announced the were coming out with a complete collection of Fine Woodworking on DVD I was sceptical about ho...
