I have owned many bandsaws, this is the only bandsaw that has ever met my expectations. Just make sure you upgrade to the timberwolf blades, like night and day.

A Bargain and an All Around Very Good Performer in a 10" TK Blade

A Bargain and an All Around Very Good Performer in a 10" TK Blade

03-27-2009 01:17 PM by knotscott | 11 comments »

This blade is such a nice bargain. For around $35, it comes close to my Infinity, Forrest, and Ridge Carbide blades, and holds its own against my many of my mid level Freud, Tenryu, and CMT blades, some of which cost nearly twice as much. For a 50T blade it feeds surprisingly easily, enabling it to go through thick stock more easily than most similar blades. Crosscuts were very clean, and rip cuts give glue ready edges. It’s very versatile overall, and easy for smaller saws to spin. ...

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit. Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. ...

Ridgid Sub compact drill drive set

Ridgid Sub compact drill drive set

03-26-2009 07:12 AM by Bob #2 | 24 comments »

I’ve been using a couple of offshore 18 volt Ni cads for about a year as my Dewalts wont hold a charge any longer and I saw no advantage to replacing their batteries.I had been looking at the Ridgid standard 18 volt Li cordless but when I saw this one at the Borg I had to try it. The tools are very compact and feel well made with a good balance although heavy for their size, I can live with that as they are still lighter than my old drills.The torque is amazing and blew me away at 12 vo...

skil 10 in compound miter saw

skil 10 in compound miter saw

03-23-2009 03:38 AM by kosta | 4 comments »

this miter saw is a very nice saw and has a lot of features you would find on a bigger saw. The bevel adjustment is a handle you turn and the saw becomes loose to turn to the left it is only a single bevel saw but it does go 49’ in each direction for miters. It also has the most common angles for crwn molding marked so they are easy to find. I bought my saw for $100 so it not cheap but aint $1300 like the kapex is I take it on jobs with me all the time so this saw can take a beating. Th...

Sharpen Your Claws On This Tiger

Sharpen Your Claws On This Tiger

03-21-2009 06:48 PM by knotscott | 8 comments »

Once I acquired some functional chisels, and a fleet of hand planes, I needed an easy and effective method to keep a good edge on all of them. I initially bought a little jig that held the blades at a set angle and allowed me to work the blade back and forth across an abrasive surface…it worked ok but took a fair amount of time. I also bought a small Delta Utility Sharpener that didn’t work quite as well, but was a little faster. When the Scheppach Tiger 2000 went on sale for n...

Blue Ribbon for Tenryu's Gold Medal

Blue Ribbon for Tenryu's Gold Medal

03-21-2009 11:17 AM by knotscott | 5 comments »

The Tenryu GM-25540 “Gold Medal” is the upper end of Tenryu’s vast collection of saw blades. It features a fairly standard 40 tooth alternating top bevel (ATB) tooth configuration that’s suitable for a wide range of tasks. It sports large C4 micrograin carbide teeth that should hold an edge well and will withstand several sharpenings. The Gold Medal is a top shelf blade that’s very comparable in design and performance to the industry standard Forrest WWII 40T....

Task force scroll saw review

Task force scroll saw review

03-21-2009 02:29 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

This scroll saw is a very nice saw for $100 and is worth the money. The first thing you have to do is tape up the led light and remove the guard because you cant do interior cuts and it gets in the way. The saw also has a blower and a vaccum port help collect the dust it uses a tool to change the blade which is a pain in the ass but other than that it is a nice saw with a lot of features that would see on a more expensive saw. It doesnt have a foot switch but has a varible speed and the light...

Excellent Performer for the Money

Excellent Performer for the Money

03-21-2009 01:41 AM by knotscott | 14 comments »

The M12VC is Hitachi’s basic fixed base 11 amp router, that includes variable speed, soft start, and electronic feedback to maintain a set RPM throughout the cut. It’s also available in a kit as the KM12VC that includes both the fixed and plunge bases. The sub-base accepts the standard size PC style bushing adaptors. I purchased the M12VC in hopes it would be more manageable than my heavier Bosch 1617 for dovetail work. Mine was a refurb purchased through Reconditioned Sale...

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

03-21-2009 01:25 AM by knotscott | 4 comments »

Even for a first timer, this inlay kit worked flawlessly as advertised. Using just basic router skills, it couldn’t be much simpler. Put the bit and the guide bushing in the router, trace the template to cut the receiving hole, add the spacer to trace out the inlay with the same template, cut the inlay piece free from the stock, and place it in the complimenting cutout hole. Some sanding may be required to make everything flush, and a practice run is always a good idea. The tip of the ...
