I saw the review of a refurbished jointer and wanted to post a review on a unique table saw. The Hammond Glider saws were originally designed to cut lead type for printing presses. They are a very precise, sliding table saw with accessories designed to easily and accurately position very small pieces for cutting. I purchased mine for $50.00 on Craigs List and this included a very strong 1 HP motor. When I picked up the saw, the table was a solid sheet of rust. However, the table still sl...

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

2404 days ago by Gary Ratajczak | 11 comments »

I thought I would post a review of a “vintage” tool I refurbished a few months back. I currently have a small shop, and was looking at bechtop jointers. Happened to mention my search at the office, and one of the guys indicated he had an old jointer that he was no longer using. After $50.00, and his help to lift it into my truck, I was off on a re-furb project. As the price of new tools continues to rise, along with the cost of fuel and food, I think there is more opport...

Square it up!

Square it up!

2405 days ago by gizmodyne | 16 comments »

Why this oneI was building my shop doors and getting frustrated with the dimensional clear redwood. I tried to make a router table style jointer with a shimmed outfeed but that did not work. I got the go ahead for a jointer, did a little research and settled on the Grizzly. With delivery it was around $800. I have the standard blade system though I have heard great things about the spiral cutter head. Set upThe saw comes in two boxes. The stand is not heavy at all. The bed and motor ...

Strength, reliability, and affordability

Strength, reliability, and affordability

2405 days ago by Rob McCune | 0 comments »

I bought a set of Ryobi One+ tools a couple of years ago. The reasons I bought the set are several. Affordability was chief among them. I don’t remember how much the set was but it was half what the DeWalt set was while still being 18v. The drill that came with the set was almost the same as the P211 but without the hammer drill feature and the accompanying handle. It was very durable, very dependable, but the trigger switch went out after only a year. I bought a new switch and in...

Video Review: SawStop me if you've heard this one before....

2407 days ago by gizmodyne | 34 comments »

IntroThe saw is a 3hp, 635 pound behemoth. It is heavier than sin. Steel, Black, and Red are a good look for a saw. Very, very, very, expensive. Over $4000 with all accessories (fence, mobile base, dado cartridge, extra break cartridge, taxes). I know ….. that is really expensive. (And… I’m over it.) Why this saw: I have been taking woodworking classes for the last four years and have grown accustomed to working on the Unisaws and Powermatic cabinet saws. At home I was using a ...

Great resaw blade

Great resaw blade

2407 days ago by johnjoiner | 3 comments »

Just after Christmas I got two new band saw blades from Iturra Design (no web site) in Florida. The blade I’m reviewing here is a 105” 3/4” woodslicer 3/4 TPI. (That means it’s variable, 3 teeth in one inch, 4 the next) for $21.20. Along with Mark Duginske and his Band Saw Handbook, the guys at Iturra are band saw gurus. I believed in them before, but I hadn’t bought into their recommendations on blades. I don’t know what I was thinking. My saw is a 3/4...

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

2407 days ago by wildbill903 | 9 comments »

I purchased the 10” Hybrid saw in December last year, so it has been in the shop fewer than two months. But in these two months we have grown quite close. My wife named her “Biesy Baby” after the fence.I’ll touch on a few of the more important points in my review of the saw, and hopefully add some insight into your shopping experience. Features: The saw came, as the name states, with the left tilt feature. Two noted luxuries this affords are in large mitred-edge ...

Not bad, Not Great

Not bad, Not Great

2407 days ago by roundabout22 | 21 comments »

For a few years I made do with a ryobi plunge router. In fact it’s still going strong, but the time came for an upgrade. I knew I wanted a kit, that way I could put the fixed base under the router table and just switch the motor over. The plan was to make some rail and stile doors so I figured on at least a 2hp router. In doing the research it seemed like this router and the dewalt were fairly close. I wasn’t planing on doing much template routing and actually liked the feel...

Maybe it's just me but I don't like this one

Maybe it's just me but I don't like this one

2407 days ago by cajunpen | 24 comments »

Bought this 6” Delta benchtop jointer a few months ago for my shop. I choose the benchtop version because of limited space and the fact that most of my projects are small, boxes, clocks, etc. I think that I have made a mistake on this one, I have had several problems with it. The first thing I noticed was that the outfeed table had a dip on the end farthest from the blades. I brought it to the authorized factory repair center and they replaced the outfeed table. Since then, I have ...
