New Plastic Dust Deputy Arrests Dust

New Plastic Dust Deputy Arrests Dust

08-06-2009 03:18 PM by TheDane | 15 comments »

The demo at AWFS and videos online were just too convincing … I ordered the new Oneida Dust Deputy kit ($99.00 plus $10.50 S&H). It was money well spent. The ‘kit’ comes with the plastic cyclone, two buckets, lid, hardware and hoses. The cone itself is a tough, heavy plastic, and the hose connections are tapered so my ShopVac hoses fit tight and stay put. Assembly took under 5 minutes. Instead of a copper wire and washer recommended by the manufacturer for static disc...

Woodsmith Aluminum Box Joint Jig

Woodsmith Aluminum Box Joint Jig

08-05-2009 11:41 PM by CharlieD | 9 comments »

I was fairly pleased with this product and give it a 3.5 rating. . It was somewhat difficult to use and with some minor changes could be greatly improved. The DVD instructions were pretty good once you watched it several times. I found it difficult to hold the boards in place when you have a lot of cuts to make. Some type of hold down fasterner would help but also would slow the process quite a bit. What you don’t realize when you buy the jig is that you might as well and go ahea...

OK..OK…this isn’t about a new cool tool. However, sometimes it is nice to recognize the service and people behind those cool new tools. I recently placed an order with Penn State Industries online and used a gift debit card that I thought had enough on it to cover the order. Well, it didn’t and the order “bounced.” I got a very nice call and email and the Customer Service agent (Judy) worked things out for me with as courteous a tone as you could imagine. ...

StrongHold Clamps

StrongHold Clamps

08-03-2009 02:23 AM by dustbunny | 5 comments »

I accidentally posted this review under the blog section, and thought I better correct it. I was looking for a clamp that could hold a glue up of two 45 deg strips of wood to make a block. Basically two triangles glued together to make a square. All the woodworking site searches produced nothing. Then I came across these clamps on a welding website. http://www.stronghandtools.com/products/pdt_img/pgv_pic.html I ordered three of them from my local welding supply store to see how t...

Another quick review: Bosch RO20VSK

Another quick review: Bosch RO20VSK

Third Update: Ignore the update below. Today, way after the fact I receive the roter plate Bosch, My faith in the company is restored. Good thing too because I own three of their tools, the sander, a 12” compound sliding miter saw, and their fantastic plunge router. I’m glad to see they keep their word even if belated. Thanks Bosch. Another Update (The above updates this older paragraph) 9/25: Read below regarding velcro problems. Bosch never followed through sending me the new...

An Excellent DC!

An Excellent DC!

Update: At christmas time I upgraded to a 2 micron filter bag. I noticed a big difference and I am very happy now. Because of the upgrade I decided to edit my review. With the 2 micron bag it is exactly the same as the 10-105M model, so I can pretty much call it that one now. in conclusion, I now rate it 5 stars. I have been woodworking since grade five and always had a big problem with dust in the shop. I started reading up on dust collectors and got very interested in them. just this yea...

Grizzly G1023SL 10" Table Saw 3 HP Single-Phase 220V Left-Tilt

07-31-2009 07:23 PM by Jon3 | 10 comments »

Disclaimer I’m an amatuer woodworker with about 3 years of experience. I am not a professional, and I’m not paid to do this kind of work. Also, my entire shop measures roughly 11’ x 22’, and includes some storage as well, so I may be more cautious about sizing and portability compared to your average woodworker. IntroductionI originally purchased this saw in June of 2007, and as this is July 2009, I’ve got 2 full solid years of use of it it so far, and it is...

What is wrong with Bostitch?

What is wrong with Bostitch?

07-31-2009 04:36 AM by sboyle | 33 comments »

I bought a compressor not too long ago. It ran good for a while and now the pressure doesn’t build up. From what I read it is the valve assembly. I don’t know if I should replace it or just buy another brand. I thought Bostitch made good tools but this just changed my opinion. I read that one person actually replaced it 3 times. Am I wasting my time with this one? Should I toss it and buy another brand? Any opinions would be appreciated. I think I will be staying away from Bostitc...

Osborne EB-3 Miter Gauge

Osborne EB-3 Miter Gauge

07-31-2009 12:09 AM by Don K. | 20 comments »

I know Schummie just did a review of this miter gauge yesterday….But I just got mine also…and thought I would tell you what I thought so far. First this is a great miter gauge that came out of the box DEAD on accurate. It was extremely easy to assemble and adjust to my saw. Second…other than saying how great it is and accurate it is (Which by the way I already said…lol) I figured I would show a few things. As you can see….it is extremely long even with ...
