Powermatic 1200 Air Cleaner

Powermatic 1200 Air Cleaner

05-09-2009 07:02 AM by Scott Bryan | 24 comments »

Installation Assembly of a tool could not have been simpler. The only real assembly consisted of attaching 4 anchor eye bolts to the tool’s cabinet. I chose to mount it to the ceiling in order to control fine dust within the shop. This is definately a two person job since the assembled cabinet weighs about 70 pounds. The unit has three fan speeds and can be set for either continuous operation or set via a timer for 1 to 4 hours. Performance The cleaner will remove 99 percen...

Review of the Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw

Review of the Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw

05-07-2009 04:17 AM by Scott Bryan | 79 comments »

Intro: The saw is a 3hp, 585 pound monster. I purchased the 52” fence, hydraulic mobile base and extension table. Setting it up is definately a two person job (although I did it alone with help from my wife only in setting up the front rail). I did get help in lifting it onto the mobile base, however, as this is the only way to mount it to the base. The instructions call for help in setting the saw upright since the base cabinet weighs 200+ pounds. I was able to do it alone b...

This stuff really works!

This stuff really works!

05-06-2009 08:48 AM by tmiller | 19 comments »

Many of you probably have used this stuff before but it is new to me. I mean I have seen it around for years but never thought much of it till I picked up the Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle Sander (pictured above). I have noticed a number of lumberjocks with this machine. You can pick this up from many different manufactures and at many different outlets but I happened to get mine at Harbor Freight for $4.99. That seemed like a reasonable gamble not knowing how well this type ...

Works well after you work out the kinks

Works well after you work out the kinks

05-05-2009 09:43 AM by cmaeda | 4 comments »

I got this so I can make my own vises. I also bought some 1 1/4” dowels to go along with it. This does require some practice to use. The instructions are very sparse and the construction was kind of cheap. The guide that is screwed onto the threader was installed incorrectly so it was difficult to remove. The threader had some scratches and small gouges on it. The tap was fine.I tried it right out of the box. I followed the instruction, soaked the dowel in some BLO and then start...

Part 2 "Sold for Auto work but works on wood"

Part 2 "Sold for Auto work but works on wood"

Video> Finally I am getting to do some spray painting I spent hours watching videos and worrying about lord knows what… So armed with 3 spray guns my mask on my face and dressed up like a bio-tech sci-fi movie character I was ready to lay my first covering and I have to say I was as nervous as a school girl (What ever that means) The first gun I tried was the touch up gun with the 1.0 mm tip right out of the box which is really to small for the paint which was latex and required a 1.5mm ti...

LOCKTITE Power Grab adhesive, great stuff!

LOCKTITE Power Grab adhesive, great stuff!

05-04-2009 07:08 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 9 comments »

I used Locktite Power Grab to install some cleats to support some shelves in our 5th wheel. The surfaces were fairly slick, so I roughed them up a bit with 50 grit sandpaper. I tried this adhesive because the cabinets are fairly deep and narrow, It would be quite difficult to reach in to position,, hold and attach the cleats with screws. I intended to get the cleats placed and use screws later. The product holds so well, I cannot break it loose after a day and a half. The only failure w...

Bernard E Jones the complete woodworker

Bernard E Jones the complete woodworker

05-03-2009 04:25 PM by kiwi1969 | 5 comments »

If Nick Englers recently reviewed book is the go to book for modern woodworking, then The complete woodworker is the turn of the century equivalent. Although out of print it,s still available through Amazon which has 21 copies for $4.17 US and if you are curious how your great Grandfathers made furniture then it,s absolutly worth the price of admission. The Four volume Practical woodworking set on the right is the original fully unabridged version which I was lucky to find in a second hand bo...

Quality saw, worth the investment

Quality saw, worth the investment

05-03-2009 10:47 AM by tmiller | 7 comments »

I have only had this saw for a few weeks but I have put it to pretty heavy use in that time building a couple Adirondack chairs and a few jigs. I am very glad I own this saw. It is worlds apart from most introductory jig saws (Black&Decker, Skill, Craftsman, Chicago…) I am not trying to be snooty but I have owned these and I am glad I upgraded. From where I stand here are the saws pros and cons. PROS:-Quick-Change blade clamp allows fast blade changes – no tools required. O...
