A great router fence

A great router fence

2087 days ago by Steven Naslund | 0 comments »

After messing around with a lot of home-made fence systems for my router table, I decided that for my newest table I would buy a fence and spend more time building furniture and less time building the shop. The fence is built incredibly well as has been my experience with all the Jess-Em products I have purchased. Positives - Fence stays centered on the table when sliding back and forth Spilt sliding fence allows for very large router bits Comes with jointing shims to bring half ...

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

2088 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I reviewed Hendrik’s DVD (Jointer and Planer Secrets) a while ago and was very pleased with it. When Hendrik came out with a new DVD on Table Saws, I was very interested in getting. At first the price of $94.95 CDN, might seem a little high, but what you get makes it worth every penny. I really wish I had this DVD when I bought my first table saw! This is a 5 DVD set and it has almost 10 hours footage. As with his Jointer DVD set, Hendrik always focuses on safe operation of the t...

What a fantastic saw

What a fantastic saw

2092 days ago by sry | 14 comments »

Overall impressionsI only wanted to buy a jigsaw once, so I bought the best I could afford the first time. This was it. $160 at the CPO Bosch website when I bought it a few months ago. I think it’s down to $145 at amazon now. I’ve been using the saw for a few months now, and have to say that I’m very glad I bought this rather than some of the others I’ve looked at. This saw seems to have power to spare in every task I’ve thrown at it, up to and including 2&#...

MLCS Horizontal Router Table

MLCS Horizontal Router Table

2095 days ago by Toolz | 11 comments »

I was having trouble routing wide panels standing on edge on my router table. I made a jig to stand panels on edge for trimming solid edge moldings on plywood but was unhappy with the results. After reading reviews http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/review1.htm#Horizonal_Tab_anchor and watching the short video http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/horizontal_router_table.html I ordered the table and mounted a Craftsman Model 3...

Lancelot,Squire by King Arthur Tools

Lancelot,Squire by King Arthur Tools

2096 days ago by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

This tool along with or by itself, the Squire fits on any 4 or 4 1/2 inch handgrinder and what it is is basically a miny chainsaw. I’ve owned one for 4 years or more and would’nt know what I’d do without it. I’ve used it on wood on the lathe to hog out wood, to hog out seats when making chairs, anytime you need to get rid of a lot of wood without using a saw or rasp or chisel. You can rake it along the wood and it’s like taking a chainsaw and raking it along a pl...

Ridgid JP0610 Jointer/Planer

Ridgid JP0610 Jointer/Planer

2099 days ago by ferstler | 35 comments »

OK, before I purchased the JP0610 I owned a 30-inch Delta JT160 tabletop jointer/planer. (Shown to the right in the wider-angle photo.) I still have the thing and now store it on a shelf where it can be quickly hauled out onto my shop’s workdeck for rough-and-tumble work that does not involve longer boards. The 45-inch-bed Ridgid JP unit has replaced it as a precision tool (some have complained of table alignment problems, but mine seems perfect in that respect), and of course the ne...

Ridgid BS1400 Band Saw

Ridgid BS1400 Band Saw

2099 days ago by ferstler | 36 comments »

Note: while this review is of the BS1400 model, the owner’s manual calls it the BS14002. I do not know if the addition of the number 2 signifies an upgrade or is just the full number not listed correctly in the catalog. The earlier “gray” version might have been the plain, old BS1400. In any case, the one being reviewed here is the orange version seen easily at any Home Depot store, usually selling for about $350. OK, this is a pretty basic band saw in the old style. It c...

Ridgid MS1290LZ Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Ridgid MS1290LZ Sliding Compound Miter Saw

2099 days ago by ferstler | 14 comments »

I am reasonably new to woodworking, if one can call getting into it seriously only four years ago as “new.” I will also note that it was four years ago that I retired from a 35-year career at a university library. Once I retired I told my wife that I wanted to get a few tools so that it would be easier to do home-improvement projects. One thing led to another and now I have a workshop full of tools. My woodworking neophyte status notwithstanding, I am not new to reviewing produ...

Master Woodworking Plans

Master Woodworking Plans

2100 days ago by disgruntled | 8 comments »

The online digital purchase of the Master Woodworking Plans turned out to be a great disappointment.Their website advertises in a very deceiving way plenty of wood working plans that in reality are just a collections of outside links to other websites in cyberspace where one has to sift through more ads to finally realize you can buy their plans. I was very disappointed since the same result can be achieved by searching in any search engine and leave this review so others might be able to r...

Dewalt DC845KA Impact Driver

Dewalt DC845KA Impact Driver

2101 days ago by Will Mego | 2 comments »

Thus far, I love everything about this driver! Faced with a roof job on my folks terribly rotten roof, and recalling the last time I was driving screws through simple plain old pine and how I couldn’t get screw in without stripping it, I decided to bite the bullet, and buy an impact driver. I looked at a few, but decided to splurge and get the 18V dewalt (in a kit, which included the 2 batteries). I’m glad I did. So far, it drives pretty much ANYTHING through ANYTHING. It’...
