Ridgid 13" Planer

Ridgid 13" Planer

02-26-2009 11:48 PM 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

02-26-2009 11:39 PM 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

02-23-2009 08:25 AM 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

02-22-2009 10:16 PM 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

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...

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

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

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!!!

02-19-2009 01:26 AM 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.

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...
