DeVilbiss MGQ-500

DeVilbiss MGQ-500

01-29-2009 at 11:23 PM by Omegacool | 4 comments »

Air Gun: DeVilbiss Part of a good finish into the wood or the application of automotive paint, much depends on the gun used, among other factors.Speaking of brands, DeVilbiss, is for me the best brand of air guns in Mexico. But talk of quality is also talk about cost, and the products of this brand is expensive in comparison with the other brands mentioned. DeVilbiss MGQ-500 Currently this model is the most sold in Mexico, it can get at Homedepot or a Wal-Mart. For continuous esca...

Hitachi CW 40 16" Scroll Saw

Hitachi CW 40 16" Scroll Saw

01-28-2009 at 08:22 PM by MrsN | 8 comments »

For Mother’s Day last year my husband asked what I wanted. I said a scroll saw. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but I didn’t have one and I wanted one. Since that is about the same logic that keeps my husband buying chain saws I knew my reasoning would work. (I think the chain saw count is up to 6, just yesterday he came home saying “but I don’t have this one, and it has a turbo, none of mine have a turbo)Not knowing exactly what I would do with the...

Solid brad nailer

Solid brad nailer

01-26-2009 at 08:39 PM by sry | 4 comments »

After debating for a while, I decided to buy this brad nailer. I was torn between this and the PC 2” model, but when I couldn’t find a good deal on the compressor/nailer combo kit I decided to go a different route. I’m glad I did (although I’m sure the PC nailer would have been great) I went to Home Depot and Lowes to handle some different nailers and see which ones I liked: weight, ease of loading, tip visibility, etc. I ended up choosing this one simply because i...

A leg up on the work bench

A leg up on the work bench

01-26-2009 at 04:32 PM by Chris Wright | 10 comments »

I had first read about this bench in the September ‘07 issue of American Woodworker. Earlier this month I met the inventor and got to try out the system. The system allows you to have a work surface at a height that you need. I ordered the leg set, the caster set and their “one rail” system. Here’s what they all looked like when the packages arrived. Here’s the legs. They are made from 11 gauge powder coated steal. Here’s the whole ba...

Pretty good deal

Pretty good deal

01-24-2009 at 10:36 PM by peabody | 16 comments »

I want to start off by saying that for all spindle or pen work, this lathe is perfect, the adjustment speeds are great and it is a breeze to operate. The problem is that when you try to turn anything larger than about 3” the whole machine goes to crap. I broke my shop’s midi while turning a 3.5” bowl and I bent the shaft, meaning that nothing can be turned on it ever again. As long as you use this for smaller objects it will serve you well although if you plan on using it...

There was nothing that I ordered that they did not hav...

Makita LS1214F 12-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Makita LS1214F 12-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

01-23-2009 at 08:57 PM by ND2ELK | 13 comments »

I just bought this Makita 12” sliding miter saw and cannot say enough good about this saw. I went to Acme Tool an hour and a half away in Cedar Rapids so I could play with the Makita, Bosch and Dewalt miter saws. I felt the Makita had the smoothest slides of all three and liked the way the slides are on the bottom of the saw. There was no movment whatsoever and it just seemed like the best quality saw. It was right on the nuts out of the box and I cut all my trim for the shop with it. I would...

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

01-23-2009 at 08:32 PM by ND2ELK | 4 comments »

I just bought a Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turbo vacuum. The features are: 6-gals, compact, quiet (60dB), variable speed, 6 wheels for stability, cloth filter bag that extracts 5 micron dust, 16’ hose and cord. You can also plug your equipment into it and when you start up you machine it automatically turns the vac on and off when using the machine. It is a little pricey but will worth it. I highly recommend this vaccum.

Mortise Pal Review:  Highly Recommended

Mortise Pal Review: Highly Recommended

01-23-2009 at 04:23 PM by newTim | 6 comments »

January 23rd, 2009Review: Mortise Palhttp://www.mortisepal.com/ I highly recommend this jig. It is well machined and works exactly as shown; a rare achievement in woodworking, I know. I purchased the original MP a few months back and quickly discovered it would only fit 2 1/4” (?) maximum. Well they must have heard some feedback and they came out with Version 2.0 which will straddle 3” stock and has a couple of other improvements. Things I look for in tools include: Is it safe? Is i...

Review of ClearVue 1800LH

Review of ClearVue 1800LH

01-22-2009 at 09:02 PM by Padre | 35 comments »

I purchased a ClearVue cyclone 1800LH for my shop about two months ago. Had torn muscles in my shoulder, so put it up a month ago, had shoulder surgery, and finally got it wired and turned on for the first time today. First Impressions: The unit came complete, packaged extremely well. Everything labeled, wrapped, boxed, re-wrapped. I unpacked everything and nothing was dented, broken, scratched or otherwise in any condition but brand new. The system also came with a remote control and...
