Convenient and Flexible

Convenient and Flexible

(photo from: www.ridgid.com) When we first were looking for tools for our shop Rick wanted a drum sander. We asked at a store and were shown this Ridgid model which is multi-purposed. Rick was sold and we’ve never regretted the purchase. Features: belt sander (4”) spindle sander (5 sizes) tilting table Conversion Switching between the belt sander and spindle sander is really easy. It is also simple to change the sleeves for the spindle sander. Everything...

Real affordable quality

Real affordable quality

2373 days ago by Rob McCune | 5 comments »

This machine has me hooked on Jet tools. I had really thought high quality cost a lot more. Granted it doesn’t have some of the features of it’s PowerMatic cousin (they are made by the same company). Power: More than enough. I haven’t been able to slow it down facing 6” wide boards. Reliability: Rock solid, the only issue I have had is with dust collection. As long as you have a dust collector hooked up there is no issue, but if you try to use just the chip ...

Not the worst, but...

Not the worst, but...

2373 days ago by Rob McCune | 6 comments »

Okay, I realized when I spent $99 on a table saw that I would be getting what I payed for, but I was just starting out and really needed something. I picked up a decent blade for it and hoped for the best. Power: none. It can barely cut a 2” x 4” through the “2” side, don’t even bet on the “4” side. Reliability: Well it hasn’t broken on me yet, but I lost the arbor wrench and without it I can’t change the blade. If you get one, do...

Oh the joys of smooooth wood

Oh the joys of smooooth wood

2374 days ago by cajunpen | 10 comments »

This is a review that I posted a few months ago, but I thought that as long as we were going to have a “Review” section on the Forum that it should be here. The Veritas Bevel-Up Smoother Plane has added a whole new level to my woodworking projects. This is my first new plane and it is now my favorite. Right out of the box it was cutting wood as smooth as glass. I have since sharpened it and honed it and the cuts are even smoother. I hardly use sandpaper for my smaller proje...

Solid bandsaw.

Solid bandsaw.

2374 days ago by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

I have owned this saw for about a year. I bought it at Rockler for $800 in a deal that included the rip fence and a very good DVD. It sits on locking casters and rolls quite nicely. AssemblyThe saw comes in one piece. The only thing to assemble is the table and fence. I had to drill out one of the caster holes that was not formed properly, but that was minor. I lifted the saw by myself which I don’t really recommend (310 pounds). The story4” dust port does the job. Wired ...

Delta 22-580 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

Delta 22-580 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

2374 days ago by GaryK | 25 comments »

I have had this planer for going on 2 years now. I have nothing but praise for it.I got it used but like new condition. It has 2 sppeds. A dimensioning speed of 60 cpi allows you to shave rough wood to its desired thicknessquickly with no snipe. Then a quicker finishing speed of 90 cpi, your wood comes out ultrasmooth and ready to go. The double-sided M2 steel knives are powered by a 15 amp, 120-volt, single-phase motor. It has a blade zero indicator (which lets you set the cutterhead t...

A GREAT SAW

A GREAT SAW

2374 days ago by bfd | 11 comments »

In my opinion you can’t buy a better saw for the money when it comes to quality. I disagree with the other post on one point calling this a great saw for a beginner. I think it is a great saw period! I don’t concider myself a beginner nor do I concider myself a pro by any means but somewhere in the middle like most. With that said I don’t think this saw will be a purchase that I will regret or out grow any time soon. I opted for the 30” Beisemeyer Fence and have upgr...

Want to build Craftsman style furniture?

Want to build Craftsman style furniture?

2375 days ago by gizmodyne | 17 comments »

This is an amazing book containing shop drawings of Stickley furniture. These are not plans, they are shop drawings. The book is divided into chapters by room: dining, bedroom, etc. I have built several of the projects in here including a small table and a mirror. I am in the process of building the Little Journey’s table and a large dining table as well. There is a huge variety of projects. In order to build a project you should be experienced in planning. I usually create ...

I’ve had this unit for about six months and am very pleased with it.After destroying a wood chisel on a 6” grinder years ago I had been sharpening my tools with Japanese water stones. I was getting unsatisfactory results on my carving and lathe gouges, so decided to find a better (read easier) way. Pros:Easy to set upEasy to repeat anglesFast with excellant resultsNo burned tools Cons:PriceA bit messy (no more so than water stones) Videos can be viewed at Sharp Tools USA ...

A Worthy bandsaw blade

A Worthy bandsaw blade

2375 days ago by GaryK | 20 comments »

I have been using these blades for years now and they are fantastic. They do a great jog resawing. They create no vibration and noise due to their variable tooth spacing from 3 to 4 TPI. Leaves a great finish also.I have cut perfect .093” think slices off of an 11 1/2” board. Fine Woodworking April 2004 has rated their Wood Slicer blade as “Best All-Round Performer” in their independent test for speed, flatness and smoothness! It also has a very thin blade of .022”. At...
