Finally went and done it

Finally went and done it

04-30-2018 11:31 PM by skiler | 9 comments »

I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). It was aligned right out of the box. The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. They were perfect. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.

2 out of 3 IS bad!! - I'm an idiot!!

04-28-2018 01:50 AM by BobinSachse | 30 comments »

Well,I got burned by a hidden screw in a piece of wood I was cutting on my Grizzly 0513ANV band saw, It was the blade that came with the saw. Not a huge loss, but with no blade, I decided to order 3 blades from Sawblades.com. I ordered them Tuesday evening and received them on Thursday afternoon. QUICK Shipping!!! I went to resaw some African Blackwood for Knife scales for a friend. I had ordered Q201 3/4” 3 Tpi for resawing. I pulled it out of the box and guess what?? I...

Wow what a bummer

Wow what a bummer

04-26-2018 01:15 PM by chris6453 | 8 comments »

I waited patiently for my YAS slab master to arrive all was well . It arrived on schedule and in great shape . Once assembled we realized that the machine was wired for AUS-EURo 415v 3 phase . Once I realized that the options I had were a 3500.00 transformer or a new motor for 1400.00 I choose the later . I placed emails to YAS and the only response I have gotten to date after 12 emails is ” I will review and get back to you” Now 6 weeks later I can’t even get a returned ca...

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

04-25-2018 01:52 AM by JBrow | 2 comments »

Purchase. The 17 gallon Oneida Dust Cobra Dust Extractor along with the optional 2.5” x 25’ CleanShop Vacuum Hose Kit replaced a 1980s Craftsman Shop Vac outfitted with Oneida’s Dust Duty. The Craftsman was showing signs of wear. The Craftsman began making noise when shut off, probably dry bearings. Shop vacs and dust extractors were considered, but the Dust Cobra seemed to offer more. It is designed for a 2-1/2” hose. An Industrial Dust Cobra, which includes a drum dolly...

Performance beyond it's price

Performance beyond it's price

04-23-2018 04:51 AM by Mike_D_S | 4 comments »

So I’ve had this saw a few months now and had time to make a number of different cuts with it. I picked this up at Home Depot pretty much paid $150 net for it as I had a few other items and used the $20 off $200 Pro coupon. I’ve cut a pretty good bit of ply, some hardwood and a bunch of 2x and cedar pickets when I replaced some of my fence. Overall, I’ve been impressed with the saw and the quality. Though I will say that the last circular saw I bought was a Skil saw ba...

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

04-21-2018 01:12 PM by MagicalMichael | 4 comments »

This review can only address the unboxing and assembly because the fence has gone onto a not quite finished bench and so hasn’t been used yet. The unit is very solidly made, and I feel confident I will like using it. However when I first unboxed it I considered returning it to Woodcraft. Instead of a router fence I had a collection of 15+ parts and what looked like maybe a hundred assorted, unidentified nuts, bolts and washers. My first look at the instruction manual suggested tha...

Generic Batteries for Dewalt DCD771 Cordless drill

Generic Batteries for Dewalt DCD771 Cordless drill

04-18-2018 07:43 PM by Blackie_ | 19 comments »

I found a set of Generic batteries that fit the Dewalt DCD771 cordless drill on Amazon. I purchased a couple of them and thus far that are worth their weight in gold. These batteries are larger (4.0ah) than the stock batteries (1.3ah) that come with the kit and work in the same charger that came with the drill kit. They are a bit larger in that they are taller and a tad bit heavier. Masione 20V 4.0Ah Max Lithium Ion Replacement Battery for Dewalt Hammer Drill DCB204 DCB207

Plans for The Morley Mortiser

Plans for The Morley Mortiser

04-14-2018 08:34 PM by Rich | 2 comments »

I’ve been looking around for ideas for a mortising jig for the router. Most of what I’ve found up to this point is pretty makeshift, either using the edge guide for the router with some stops, or requiring different jigs for each size. I first came across Philip Morley’s web site when I was researching Krenov-style saw horses. Philip is the product of a London trade school and two apprenticeships under master furniture makers. As a result, his work is impeccable. It&#...

Almost perfect handheld CNC

Almost perfect handheld CNC

04-10-2018 06:41 PM by dschlic1 | 9 comments »

You can find more information here. These are still on pre-order/fulfillment. I received mine and have been learning to use it. I do not have space in mu shop for a table/gantry style CNC machine, however I want to be able to do CNC type cuts. The Shaper Origin seems to be a (nearly) perfect solution. I have also included an example of my most recent project. This CNC is not a full 3D unit, at most it is 2.5D. Pros:Small compact unit, stores away in a systainer. When used correctly the ...

Kreg hinge jig ok with one major annoying flaw

Kreg hinge jig ok with one major annoying flaw

04-09-2018 03:24 AM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

So I had a home made jig for installing concealed hinges that i managed to misplace. I happened to be in the Woodcraft and saw the Kreg jig, so i figured I’d give it a try as the price was pretty good. So after installing a dozen doors worth of hinges, I have some hints and one major gripe about the jig. The good:It’s easy to use. The guide keeps the forstner bit perpendicular with out much effort.Consistent placement is easy to achieve.The price is right. The hints:Kee...
