Irwin Miter Saw Laser Guide -- works well so far

05-29-2008 01:42 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 12 comments »

This weekend I bought and installed the Irwin Miter Saw Laser Guide onto my DeWalt Miter Saw. I’m very happy with it so far. It was easy to install It projects a crisp clean line to the left of the blade (unless your blade retaining nut is on the right of the blade) It is very helpful with complex cuts or cutting complex material It is less helpful with straight cuts on square material (it’s easier for you to know where the blade will be cutting in this regard) It was c...

Very Impressive Adhesive

Very Impressive Adhesive

This is the first time I’ve used a hide glue and I must say that I am very pleased with everything about it. I have always used TiteBond glues in the past but this is a far superior glue (in my opinion) than the others. It stays where you apply it, does not run or drip like other TiteBond glues, and gives you more time for complicated glueups. Many times in my projects, I apply glue with a toothpick in mortises and again on their matching tenons. This glue rolls easily off the pick, lea...

I won this in a promo pack of FastCap and Proxxon goodies at my local Woodcraft grand opening. If I knew how useful this tool was I would have bought one a long time ago. The first thing I used this for was the obvious use – drawing circles. No surprises here, its the $0.99 compass I used in grade school … on steroids. The AccuScribe has multiple joints so the pencil can be adjusted to be perpindicular to the surface you are marking instead of angled. Each joint has a brass kno...

the earmuffs every woodworker should have

the earmuffs every woodworker should have

05-24-2008 11:27 AM by moshel | 14 comments »

Got these for my B-day from my wife. I guess that she was getting tired of having to enter the workshop and kick me while i was working to attract my attention.The earmuff are class 5 with radio and active surround noise filtering. in simple words, you can work with the earmuffs and still hear what you are doing, but completely protect your hearing. I have worked with them for a week now and they are terrific. they are so good that I actually use them also in the house to hear radio. the earm...

The Joint Book The Complete Guide to Wood Joinery

I picked this little book up this past weekend for thirteen bucks. Its a small (7”x9”approx) spiral bound hardcover with nice thick pages that would feel right at home on a shelf close at hand to the workbench. There is a lot of information packed into its 192 pages. With well made diagrams and pictures. The first chapter is an overview on layout and clamping.The second designing joints- wood movement, grain orientation, choosing a joint and gluingThird Chapter Edge and Scarf...

JET 708100 - Excellent value

JET 708100 - Excellent value

05-19-2008 05:22 PM by TheDane | 7 comments »

I purchased my Jet 708100 from a local machine shop, and consider it an excellent value. Assembly was easy (once I figured out some missing info in the instructions) and the trunion, fence, and miter gauge all checked out true with no alignment or adjustment required. I installed my saw on one of Jet’s adjustable rolling bases and have found it to be quite stable. Unlike other contractor saws, the 1.5HP motor is inside the saw’s cabinet, which makes it an excellent candidate...

A Router Designed for the Table

A Router Designed for the Table

05-18-2008 02:59 AM by mikebremner | 7 comments »

I recently decided that I needed a new router as my old DeWalt was looking a bit long in the tooth. A quick trip to my local store to check their price on a new DeWalt and I found this Triton with 75% off. As soon as I seen the price the decision was made for me. Triton sell two models of router – the smaller 2-1/4HP model and this one – the bigger 3-1/4HP. The first thing I noticed when I got it home was the weight as I lifted it out of the box – this is one heavy beast ...

Just the right size for many projects

Just the right size for many projects

SST just left his review of the Shopsmith 11” bandsaw. What you’ll see between my bandsaw and his bandsaw is that both of them are the same “base” units. The saws are exactly the same, even though mine was manufactured about 45 years later, just as he mentioned in his review. The differences are what I’ll point out in my review. The table, as you can see, is the first main difference. SST’s bandsaw has a nice, heavy cast iron table. Mine has an aluminum ...

Shopsmith by Magna 11" bandsaw...small, simple, unchanged for a half century

05-11-2008 06:23 AM by Shopsmithtom | 29 comments »

I decided I’d review my 1956 Shopsmith band saw. Why would anyone care about a 50 plus year old band saw???(except for a couple of old Shopsmith nuts?)Because it’s a great saw and you can still buy one new today from Shopsmith, or used on ebay, and you’d be getting essentially the same machine as my 50 year old saw.(and I consider that a good thing) Now, why would anyone build the same tool for a half century while everyone around you changes stuff almost as often as car ...
