Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

1978 days ago by trifern | 30 comments »

The Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe is an enticing machine based on it’s price point, horse power, and features. I would not recommend it. Don’t get me wrong, I have made some fairly nice pieces on it. However, I wish I had never purchased it. In one year I have replaced the belt around 10 times, replaced all bearings, replaced the tool rest, and replaced the tail stock hand wheel twice. The tail stock and head stock do not align, it vibrates, and is noisy.

Evolution rage Review

Evolution rage Review

1979 days ago by toolman | 3 comments »

If your like us you might never have heard of the power tool manufacture called Evolution power tools. We tested this bad boy the other day and it is awesome. Lots of power and very easy to control. We cut Rebar, wood with nails, plastic and aluminum. Oh yeah, it was all with one blade. They also offer a diamond blade and we cut through concrete and stone with no problem. The interesting thing about this saw is after we cut the steel, we could work with it right away, it wasn’t ho...

Nothing plain about this plane!

Nothing plain about this plane!

1979 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 16 comments »

This is my 1000th post so I thought I should make it special; so I will write about a great plane my great wife gave me for my birthday (its actually on Sunday but we were in Winnipeg visiting my brother and his wife so we had an impromptu birthday party there). Any way this is of course a Lee Valley tool and you can go to their web page for dimensions etc. I’ll just write about my impression of the tool. First off is the heft of the tool, its got a good solid feel to it and the tote...

Storage Units

Storage Units

1979 days ago by Randy Sharp | 10 comments »

These little gadgets (cans) are recycled from another use, but come in very handy in the storage of misc. nuts, bolts, washers, etc. I own a small collection of these storage devices myself. This company produces several colors, versions and sizes. Other companys also produce these economical units.

Ridgid 13" Planer

Ridgid 13" Planer

1980 days ago by Alan | 20 comments »

I bought this planer for my small basement workshop. It was fairly cheap, $299 Canadian on sale. It takes off alot of wood fast and is very easily adjusted. The only problem is snipe, even when I feel the boards are supported. The other observation is that after using it for a little while it creates alot of static electricity, shaving stick to it. Anyway I make sure my boards are longer then required then cut off the snipe. If I was to purchase another one I might spend more and get a ...

Works well thus far

Works well thus far

1980 days ago by Will Mego | 4 comments »

With the intention of using it to spray glue down pieces of sandpaper for the Scary Sharp sharpening method, I bought this at my local Ace Hardware, large can was about $12 or so. I’ve only used it a couple of times, but thus far it works well, giving me paper glued onto 1/2” plate glass strongly enough to work chisels on it, but it pops off easily when I want to remove the paper. I just spray a tiny amount on the back of the paper, and stick it down, let it set for a few seconds....

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

1984 days ago by Jim | 6 comments »

I had heard favoable reports of these blades and when I actually found them in a store here on Maui I was shocked. Usually we don’t get to see new products so quickly here. Anyway, I tried them and was very impressed. They cut on the up and the down. No to very little tearing even of veneered plywood. One less thing to think about—do I draw, and hence cut, on the bottom or the top of the plywood?!They’re a little thick so you can’t do tight turns, but other than tha...

Grizzly Tablesaw

Grizzly Tablesaw

1984 days ago by conwaydog | 18 comments »

OK, I finally pulled the trigger on a tablesaw. I have had this one in views for a few months. I did my countless hours of internet reviews as one should for such an item like this. I must admit I did see a few negative reviews, but most of which was the customer service from Grizzly. I have purchased two items previously (Bandsaw and dustcollector) and had minor problems. My bandsaw shipped with no visible damage to the boxes but when I opened the box up someone had slipped the fork fro...

Evapo-Rust Remover Works Great in 1 Hour

Evapo-Rust Remover Works Great in 1 Hour

1984 days ago by AbenakiMan | 18 comments »

Wow. This stuff worked every bit as good as advertised!! A very generous friend of mine gave me a 9 1/2 Stanley plane that did not sell in the estate auction he held recently. Knowing I’m building my shop and having already bought a #4 Stanley plane from him, he gave me this completely rusted plane that needed some love and care. After doing some research on the web I came across this product and thought I would give it a try. I placed the disassembled plane in a baggy and poured i...

1985 days ago by GaryCN | 10 comments »

My band saw is far from top of the line but this one item has improved it greatly.Had I not seen it demonstrated at a wood show I would not have paid the approx $70price. The lower guide is removed when using this. I can scroll cut shapes that I would never have tried with this saw. http://www.carterproducts.com/product.asp?product_id=37&cat_id=14
