Freud 2 1/4 HP Variable Speed Router Model FT1700VCE

Freud 2 1/4 HP Variable Speed Router Model FT1700VCE

1985 days ago by Straightpiped | 13 comments »

Just got this in the mail. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet. I wanted to get this up before the Woodcraft sale went away. $99 with free shipping. This is my second router, my first is a Black and Decker plunge router. This router appears to be quality built. Smooth base adjustment with two different style adjustment knobs that can be switched. Both 1/4” and 1/2” collets. Adjustable speed from 10,000-23,000 RPM. Also comes with a nice case, which is a huge bonus to...

I finally got my DC man it sucks

I finally got my DC man it sucks

1987 days ago by Jim | 18 comments »

I ordered my Penn State 1 1/2 hp “Dustroyer” a week ago Sunday and I finally got it today. I was home with a “sick” 2 year old that when I asked if he wanted to go out to the shop he grabbed his coat. He helped me set it up witch took about an hour would have been less time with less help. The directions stink. I had to stick it in the addition until mommy came home and it stands 92” tall so it has to be lined up justright in the shop to fit. This evening I hook...

Freud LU87R010 10” thin kerf 24 tooth rip blade ROCKS!!!

Freud LU87R010 10” thin kerf 24 tooth rip blade ROCKS!!!

1987 days ago by klpete45 | 9 comments »

I bought this blade last year when I had a considerable quantity of rough-cut walnut to process. My saw at that time was a Ryobi BT3000. While it did manage to rip full 2”thick boards with a 40 tooth combo blade, it did struggle and left a lot of burn marks. So I did a little internet research and settled on the Freud blade since the manufacturer claimed “This blade gives new life to underpowered table saws…..”and the fact that I could get it online for under $50 made it hard to resist. I fre...

Great DVD's  - Especially for those just starting out.

Great DVD's - Especially for those just starting out.

1987 days ago by GaryK | 7 comments »

As one of the prizes for the Winter 2009 contest I received a pair of DVD sets fromPassion for Wood. I wanted to give them a quick review. For those just starting out, the DVD set on Jointer and Planer Secrets would be of great value.The jointer can be a tricky tool to master and Hendrik goes into great detail on the subject. You can save a lot of money buying rough lumber and this DVD will show you how to makeusable wood from it. All in all a great 4 1/2 hour, 2 DVD set. T...

First on the Block to Get the New Plane

First on the Block to Get the New Plane

1987 days ago by bobdurnell | 45 comments »

After seeing the advertisement in the latest Woodcraft magazine offering the new Wood River planes I couldn’t wait to see them. The article said that they resemble the LN planes and were more affordable. After calling my local Woodcraft store I was told that it would be a while before they would have the planes in the store. Yesterday 2/17/09 I went to check them out and I believe that they are what was said in the ad.I have a no.5, no.2, no.1, and a low angle adjustable block by LN....

Pennstate Midi Lathe

Pennstate Midi Lathe

1990 days ago by interpim | 12 comments »

EDIT: I have now had this lathe for over a year now, and I am still very happy with it. I have now turned bowls, pens, spindles etc… on it, and it has done very well. I still haven’t pulled the trigger on the extension, but to be perfectly honest, I haven’t had a need for an extension yet. I did purchase a barracuda chuck system from PSI, as well as a new set of Benjamin Best lathe chisels. The motor has held up well, and I am still on the first belt that came with it....

McBridge Cabinets, New Table Saw

McBridge Cabinets, New Table Saw

1990 days ago by ND2ELK | 23 comments »

I got my Powermatic 2000 table saw the other day. It is a 10” 3HP saw with a 50” Accufence and extention table. I also got a free Powermatic metal sign, zero clearance insert and zero clearance dado insert. I bought the saw from Tool-Plus for $2,669 which included the saw, freight and tail gate service http://www.tools-plus.com/powermatic-1792000k.html. The saw was very well packaged and came thru with no damage. Everything was there except for the hardware package for the Accu...

Making wood flowers with Ebook "Forever Flowers""

Making wood flowers with Ebook "Forever Flowers""

1992 days ago by Bob Collins | 7 comments »

I downloaded this eBook about 10 months ago after asking how these flowers were made, I had imagined that wood chips from previous carvings projects were collected and glued together. I was soon directed towww.TheCarversCorner.com and for a well spend $5.00 I downloaded the ebook straight to my computer. After reading the easy to follow instructions, I went out and collected some suckers from a Poplar tree which were easy to whittle while reasonably green. I didn’t have any c...

Great drill...but

Great drill...but

1993 days ago by Cathy Krumrei | 20 comments »

This drill has alot of long lasting power and when the battery goes dead..it’s dead! We received 2 batteries and it doesn’t take long to recharge the dead one. The downfall I have with this-the bit loosens when in reverse. You really have to hold to tighten the chuck…but for me the bit still drops on the floor. I may find something to add around it as the plastic tends to just slip from my grip and it can hurt. With the 18V it’s a bit on the heavier side but the power ...

It's got rough spots but it works well.

It's got rough spots but it works well.

1994 days ago by Tim Dorcas | 5 comments »

For the past 5 months I have been looking for a new jointer. When I first started woodworking 4 years ago (has it really been long?), I purchased a Mastercraft 6” Bench Jointer. While it has served me well, it only worked for shorter pieces and it seemed to tear out everything except soft wood. Given that I am now a commited woodworker for life, I decided I really needed to get a “real jointer”. I went to all of the woodworking shops in my area but I couldn’t really fi...
