Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

2307 days ago by DaveH | 14 comments »

Just finished assembly and initial testing of my new jointer. My initial reaction is very positive. All parts required for assembly were present and accounted for and nothing was damaged. The assembly took about 4 hours. I just followed the instructions included and everything went together and the fit was good. Overall quality is good. The in feed and out feed tables are flat and aligned as well as the fence. Test cuts were good. I looked at Jet, Delta and Powermatic before ordering ...

Kreg Miter gauge

Kreg Miter gauge

2308 days ago by OttawaP | 4 comments »

I bought this gauge recently (cashing in some LV gift certificates) after promising a bunch of picture frames to my wife. It was as good a reason as any to spend some cash at LV. I did do a bit of DD on the two models they offer and found quite a bit of disappointment in the Accumiter gauge on the internet. My General miter gauge that came with the saw is nice and heavy duty but not so repeatable for anything other than 90 or 45 deg’s. I recently built a ladder shelf that had 10 deg angles...

General International 50-260 table saw

General International 50-260 table saw

2309 days ago by OttawaP | 12 comments »

I had posted this tool review of my cabinet saw purchase a few years ago on a couple woodworking forums, I hope it helps. The picture above is actually the right tilt 50-250 model, the left tilt is the 50-260. Here’s my review on my new GI 50-260 3 h.p left tilt cabinet saw. I’ll try not to get to wordy and keep it short as possible. I ordered it from Mark’s Machinery and had it the next day!! It was more of a good timing thing I think it’s usually 2-3 days. Very we...

Senco Dura Spin only average

Senco Dura Spin only average

2309 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 4 comments »

I purchased the model DS202 14 volt Senco dura spin fastening system from Home Depot. The kit comes with a hard case, two bateries and a charger. Designed to shoot strips of screws into drywall and other materials. In two large jobs I have had several misfeeds from the gun and it gets jammed up easily. Have gone back through the instructions and fine tuned it but the results were the same. When it is working at peak performance it is a beast, but when it jams it is something else.

works good enough for what I use it for !    Harbor Freight 1/2" Bandfile Belt Sander

works good enough for what I use it for ! Harbor Freight 1/2" Bandfile Belt Sander

2312 days ago by Dan'um Style | 22 comments »

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks Bought this sander about a year ago. It had low price. Worked good the first time and has not let me down since. Not a tool I use everyday, but find myself using it enough that I always keep it handy,... within reach. Coarse grit sandpaper removes stock quickly and the tool is easy to guide and control. Gave it 4 stars because we know it is a made-in-China-throw-away. For $35 bucks it’s a good deal. If it died tomorrow, would probably buy another, rathe...

LOVE this saw!

LOVE this saw!

2313 days ago by etivancic | 10 comments »

I was in the middle of cutting stringers out of PT 2×12 when I realized it was time to upgrade to a real saw. The skill saw wasn’t “cutting it”. I called my brother who is in the home building business and he recomended this saw to me…I LOVE IT! What a difference. This saw was a dream to use. VERY powerful. I love the electric brake as well which is rare in these saws or so it seemed. Features: Rear pivot depth of cut adjustment allows your hand to remain...

Accurate, Quick & Easy

Accurate, Quick & Easy

2315 days ago by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 12 comments »

For years, I have had difficulty cutting a straight, perpendicular line with a handsaw. No matter what method I tried, the cut was neither straight nor perpendicular to the stock, most often both. I had got to the point where I would pull out my circsaw, jigsaw, or fire up the table saw for all cuts, a real pain. Then, a couple of months ago, I purchased the Irwin #213104 Dovetail/Detail Saw. I feel pretty certain that I didn’t suddenly develop the talent to saw a straight line, so I mu...

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

2315 days ago by tenontim | 8 comments »

I use my planer and jointer constantly and I try to keep a sharp set of blades in each one. A couple of years ago I found Global Tooling, http://globaltooling.bizhosting.com/index.html on the internet, and couldn’t believe the prices they got for their blades. I thought that even if they were just throw aways, it would be worth the test run. “Knives are made from T1-High Speed Steel (18% Tungsten steel), 63 Rc hardened and finish ground to super sharp edge. Also offered Carbide ...

Steel City 6" Riser for bandsaw

Steel City 6" Riser for bandsaw

2316 days ago by GaryK | 19 comments »

Here is the 6” riser kit parts for the bandsaw. The installation is fairly simple.This is a “must have” addition if you plan on doing any resawing. It gives you an additional 6” height for resawing extra wide boards. It works great! It increases the length of blade needed from 93 1/2” to 105”. The same as a Delta Bandsaw. ..First remove one big bolt with w 30mm socket wrench. and set the top half aside...Then install the riser block and the two dow...
