Just love Rob's DVDs

2318 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 15 comments »

I watch a lot woodworking DVDs and Rob Cosman’s are some of my favorites. If you are just starting out with your dovetail education, I recommend that you start with this DVD first. Rob doesn’t show how to cut dovetails in this DVD, it’s all about the dovetail saw. This DVD if very unique in that regard. There aren’t any other DVDs out there, that I have found, that are dedicated to a topic like the dovetail saw. Rob covers just about everything you need to know about the dovetail saw an...

Pleasantly Surprised -or- The Abuse is Over

Pleasantly Surprised -or- The Abuse is Over

2320 days ago by DannyBoy | 15 comments »

For years I suffered under the oppression of a hard backed miter box saw. I hated the fact that one cut took what seemed like hours and usually resulted in my arm feeling like a loose rubber band. The years that I had spent with my hard backed saw abusing me had caused me to grow so fond of it. It only hurt me because it loved me. So, when I saw this saw (love that line) at my local Sears I was all flushed and almost ashamed to consider taking into the sanctity of my hard back saw and I...

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

2321 days ago by GusRod | 18 comments »

I’ve used shop made wood and metal tenoning jigs before but this one far exceeded my expectations. The tool is as hefty as they come but glides along the miter slot as if it was on a cushion of air. It’s clamp is strong enough to easily hold three foot 4×4’s for a blacksmith workbench I made recently and it’s various adjustments make it ideal for accurate cuts on cabinet and furniture work. I highly recommend this tool and at around sixty five dollars it is well w...

The best deal I ever got!

The best deal I ever got!

2321 days ago by Moshe Eshel | 7 comments »

I was looking at lathes for almost two years before I purchased this one.I previously owned (still do) a JET Mini 1014 (non VS) and was very happy for it – except for the size limit – 10” is a little too small when you want to turn a platter or a salad bowl. However, money was a little tight and I sure couldn’t afford a Oneway or Vicmarc…Anyway I was checking out lathes and even found a chinese one selling for a decent price, but I was unsure of quality, living i...

Rockler Sure-Loc Miter Guage With Fence & Stop

Rockler Sure-Loc Miter Guage With Fence & Stop

2322 days ago by DaveH | 6 comments »

Dead on accurate out of the box if your miter slots are parallel with the saw blade. Easy to assemble and adjust. Price paid: $101.49 ( included shipping ) Would I buy another: No, spend the extra money and get a better quality solution or build you own. I’m going to replace the fence with a shop built. Rockler Link Improvements needed:Option for a fence extension.Flip stop instead of a wood sliding stop.Drop in miter bar style instead of a bar style forcing you to slide...

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

2322 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

2324 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

2324 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

2324 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

2327 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...
