I know this is already listed under the tablesaw reviews but the previous ‘review’ wasn’t really a review. I’ll do my best to give you my thoughts on this. This review is from a perspective of ‘once the machine is put together’. Complaints are at the end. Power – SUPERB! Everything just melts as it goes through this thing (if you know what I mean). I came from a Ridgid TS2400 (I think that was the number). Granted – this isn’t a...

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

2225 days ago by WayneC | 39 comments »

Originally posted in my blog. I have been looking for a sharpener for a while and came close to coughing up $250 for the Jet clone of the Tormak when the woodworking show was in town last month. I had also seen the Work Sharp on the web. Dan Like had seen one in action and given it his endorsement. There is a video of it on thier web site if your interested in seeing it in action. Wood Magazine has a review of it as well as a video of it in action. On the worksharp web site there is a ...

another great DVD

another great DVD

2225 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 3 comments »

Another great DVD. this sugar chest DVD is jam packed with so much woodworking knowledge on the sugar chest that Charles Neil is passing on to us. It is a 4 DVD set and goes through every little detail. the good the bad and the ugly. it goes through everything from lumber selection, to milling, construction, and the finished product. As i stated earlier this DVD does really show the good, bad, and ugly. as Charles always says he’s going to show everything and even on a couple of small m...

Once You Try Them - You Can't Live Without Them

Once You Try Them - You Can't Live Without Them

i just got my new worktunes headphones and i have got to say that i love them. they are wonderful to use. the ones that i got have just an am/fm radio but you can also get ones to hook up to your ipod. the radio ones cost 50 and i think the ipod ones are around 80 or 90. they are very heavy duty and seem like they will last a lot longer than the other pairs that i have got before. they are nice to have when using the table saw and the miter saw but where they really shines is while ripping a ...

5 Stars for the Application! -1 for limitations when it comes to fine work

5 Stars for the Application! -1 for limitations when it comes to fine work

2228 days ago by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I definitely give this one 5 stars, but this is specific of the application – it being portable. If I was comparing it with other Hybrid saws, than this one doesn’t really compare when it comes to power. That being said. I was shopping for a table saw, after many years of working with a circular saw, and a straight edge – for me – it was time to get a setup for repetitive cuts that would be easier, and less time consuming (not to mention more precise, as the machine...

Expected more, but They are good enough.

Expected more, but They are good enough.

2228 days ago by PurpLev | 3 comments »

I got the MHG 6 Bench Chisels set. For the market price of $110 I expected these to be of somewhat higher quality than the “big store” economy sets. The FeelThey actually feel lighter then the (english) rubber handle Marples I have, and the blade seems slightly thinner. other then that, they do feel very comfortable to hold, and work with. the handle is round, but flattened out on both sides, which keeps it from rolling around the workbench, and falling off the floor… ...

Be careful when using this product

Be careful when using this product

2228 days ago by PurpLev | 17 comments »

Be careful when using this product because it’ll help you get your blades so sharp you could cut yourself by holding them by the handle… This tool is remarkably simple to use and accurate. I especially like the quick micro-bevel setup. If you are not sharpening blades on a regular bases so that you are comfortable holding them at the precise angel you want them while sharpening – this guide will double and triple the value of your blade! I am the weekend warrior, and a...

Like we've come to expect, an A+ DVD!

Like we've come to expect, an A+ DVD!

2229 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 0 comments »

as the title states this is an A+ DVD. as we’ve some to expect it is very thorough also. one thing that the DVD talks about is lumber selection. about knots, working with them, the boards themselves, the grain and everything in between then preparing the lumber, and don’t get worried that it will all be big tools. Charles uses only a tablesaw and planner for most of the milling process. he also uses a drum sander but that can be substituted for a planer. then with all the...

A good saw...while it lasted :-(

A good saw...while it lasted :-(

2230 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 8 comments »

Hello all, One of the great things about renovations is that it is really easy to rationalize a new tool purchase (or two so far). As part of the ongoing ceiling installation Jenn and I decided to buy not only the Dewalt drill, which I’ve already reviewed, but this circular saw. I did not do any research into which tool would be the best as this was more of an impulse purchase just to get the ceiling up… Some specs: 7 1/4 inch blade 5/8 arbor weight (from the manual) 11 lb...

One of the Most Helpful DVD's I've ever watched!!

2230 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Charles Neil’s Finishing A – Z Beyond the Books is a DVD set that EVERY woodworker should have. it is packed with i think about 15 hours of finishing on 10 DVD’s and it is so thorough. the two whole DVDs are just on preparing for the finish and sanding and i thought that there wasn’t much to know about sanding and preparing to finish but after Charles goes through it i just thought wow. even on preparing for a finish i learned a lot. then there are three DVDs on ...
