My wife is jealous

My wife is jealous

2173 days ago by sawdustroad | 26 comments »

Deciding that I wanted to purchase a saw with a designed-in riving knife was the easy part. Finding one that was available was a totally different story until a week ago. My decision criteria: Riving Knife; Price < $2000; Power > 1.5 HP; Dust Collection; Step up from a contractor saw My selection. This was the easy part. After stopping by the local Woodcraft and seeing the quality fence and other design features of Steel City made them a shoe in for the top choice. And they had a...

Missed the mark

Missed the mark

2174 days ago by sawdustroad | 13 comments »

I must admit, I know very few mobile bases that are actually worth much, and this one is no exception. The brakes have no chance of holding against a load; The entire setup is very unstable, everything wobbles; Universal = Universal from 24×24 to 36×36

STANLEY BOSTICH - CAP2060P CONTRACTOR COMPRES. W/ 23 GAUGE PIN NAILER

STANLEY BOSTICH - CAP2060P CONTRACTOR COMPRES. W/ 23 GAUGE PIN NAILER

2175 days ago by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

I blogged about this when it arrived by UPS, but have not had the chance to use it until now due to medical reasons. Luckily lately I’ve been able to do a little something in the shop and had the privilege to use my new Stanley Bostich Compressor. It is everything that Gary Blanchette said it would be and more. I can’t say enough about this man and his public relation’s skills, but he delivered on every promise he made, and that is exceptional in this day and age. I e-mailed...

A fun joinery plane

A fun joinery plane

2181 days ago by johnjoiner | 14 comments »

First off, I’ll point out that I have nothing to compare this to. I have never used any other plow plane, and have little experience with any other kinds of joinery planes. This is easy and fun to use. No tools are needed to do anything on this. Blade removal and all adjustments are toolless. The only thing I can think of to complain about is access to some of the knobs. I’d say I have average sized hands and fairly dexterous fingers. But I had trouble getting at the knob...

Craftsman Professional Palm Router

Craftsman Professional Palm Router

2183 days ago by runngt | 16 comments »

I had been searching for a new lighter router for easy handling and finer work. The Craftsman Professional palm router was my second pick over the Bosch, but after having the Bosch for an hour I packed it back up and returned it (I will save that for another review) and picked up the Craftsman. First thought out of the box was it felt good in my hand, comfort was great. The tool was solid but not too heavy. This was my first “soft start” router and although I have read some guy...

New Dust Collection System Just installed

New Dust Collection System Just installed

2183 days ago by bbqking | 21 comments »

This is one of the most efficient dust collectors I have run across in quite some time. The manufacturers have managed to keep the noise levels down to almost unbelievable readings and kept electric costs down to nearly nothing. However, I have been notified that refrigeration costs have increased in some workshops. I am impressed as to how these items work together as a whole, with the Harper bench brush raking dust onto the floor so that the Publix broom can pull the sawdust away from prob...

A real nice 5" ROS sander

A real nice 5" ROS sander

2183 days ago by GaryK | 11 comments »

I was in Lowes the other day looking for substitutes items for which I usually buy Porter-Cable (PC). Now that PC is owned by Black & Decker I expect they will go downhill soon. The items I usually get are Routers and Random Orbit Sanders. I started looking at the Bosch for the ROS and noticed the ROS20VSK. It had a price of $70 so I picked it upto check it out and it has a price reduced tag on it for $45. Well, I couldn’t pass up 31.5% off. BADIt doesn’t seem quite as p...

STEEL CITY DUST COLLECTOR Working great !!!

2185 days ago by gator9t9 | 7 comments »

Now mind you I have only had this machine for 1 month .and my shop is small, no planer to fill the bags ..but i love it so far …At 1.5 HP the power is terrific. The noise level rated in the book is 87db and actually it seems less when i run it …I did opt for the Shop Fox remote as it seems when ever I want to turn on my DC system I am on the other side of the room …so with 2 remotes …i attached to a stick and earth magnet on the back i can hang one from my bandsaw and...

Woodburning pen

Woodburning pen

2186 days ago by pat | 2 comments »

This is what I usually use to burn wood I recently posted a CD case and soon hope to make a frame. It is a generally good pen and was only 30 dollars. On the down side it takes a good 10 minutes to heat up.
