I’m not a plane fanatic like some, and in fact this is my first. I was having trouble controlling the dado depths on plywood sheets because of bowage and remembered seeing someone, somewhere using one of these things.Anyway, I used it on my last project and it made a world of difference.The adjustment wanders a bit, and by a bit I mean something like .005”-.01” on the depth, which is probably due to how I’m measuring it, but once it’s dialed in it works really we...

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

03-28-2016 03:33 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

To give Ryobi more than 2 star rating is pretty good, considering I am not a huge fan of most of their products. So for a plunge router, this is a good router to have whether you are a novice or a pro.It has plenty of power to do any job you need it to do. easy controls for speed changes. the on off switch is with in thumb reach, the plunge mechanism is nice and smooth. quickly locks and unlocks, and easy to do so with both hands on the router,, ergonomically it is very comfortable in the ...

Long story short, I have been trying to find a sub base plate to use on my routers, problem I always found was none would line up with my router, most of the ones i tried with pre drilled holes was they didn’t line up properly on my router, and if i attempted to drill new holes, there was little room for error. Low and behold I had two choices buy a different brand of router, or keep hunting. The hunt paid off. I finally found a sub base plate I can use in conjunction with my router. ...

The first part of this review is just focusing on the set up on the CRB 7 router jig attachment. Set up is pretty straightforward it’s not really that difficult to set up your router. I am using Ryobi router RE180Pl1G Plunge router. The only thing with this set up is they are assuming your router has the wing nuts for a straight edge already attached to your router, my router didn’t have them so I actually had to go to my local hardware store and buy some knobs. Now if you have...

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

03-26-2016 04:59 AM by mummykicks | 18 comments »

So I’d love to offer an detailed review of my new sawstop sliding crosscut table with my brand new pcs, except it appears impossible to get one shipped to my residence intact. The saw I got, no issues, crosscut table, not so much. The first one came in a box that looked like it was dropped of the back of a truck, multiple times and had been run over for good measure. UPS sucks, I thought. Open it up and the corners of the table and the fence were dinged, like you would expect if you ...

A comfortable Dust Mask RZ Mask

A comfortable Dust Mask RZ Mask

03-26-2016 01:57 AM by gpastor | 6 comments »

I really don’t like wearing dust masks in the shop. I try to catch the dust right off the Machine and try not to let it go airborne. I have tried just about all types of masks being dust mask or respirators and I never liked any of them. Some of them made me feel claustrophobic, sweaty and just terribly and comfortable. And none of them have ever been safety glass friendly. Either fogging up the glasses or having straps interfere with the temple sides. And I don’t care to s...

I would like to give a brief review of a mixed bag of Doug Thompson lathe tools, handles and tool steel blanks.Let me begin by saying right up front Doug in NO way influenced this review and I was not compensated in an way for this review unless…Unless great customer service, quality tools, and a business owner who will actually take time to share his experience and listen to yours in an honest open way is to be considered compensation. As can be seen in the picture I have a few Thom...

Finger Joint Jig Hack

Finger Joint Jig Hack

03-25-2016 04:23 PM by SJ881 | 3 comments »

Just bought this Jig and Tried it Yesterday for the first time, Joint came out really nice. I watched a few Videos and READ the Directions First. Only thing that needed help was once on the Router table and adjusted, I could not get to the Adjustment hole for my router. I needed to raise the bit a little and had to remove the jig,adjust the bit then Re-adjust the finger joint jig before Starting. Did a little research last night and this was suggested! DUH! (slaps Forehead!) used a pi...

Penn State Industries Customer Service

Penn State Industries Customer Service

03-24-2016 11:06 PM by Matthew | 5 comments »

I felt the need to write a review of Penn State Industries customer service department. I have owned a DC2000-Y single stage dust collector for about 5 years now. This review is in no way a reflection of the quality of the collector, which I think is fantastic. Never had any problems with the machine itself. Recently, I decided it was time to upgrade from the cloth bag filters, to a canister type filter with the plastics lower bags. After a cursory search online on many sources, and ...

Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

03-24-2016 07:39 PM by BinghamtonEd | 3 comments »

I haven’t seen a formal review for these guys on here, so I figured I’d go ahead and document my experience with these guys. I’ve placed 4 orders with them in the past year for a variety of screws, some tabletop fasteners, and most recently some 26” KV-brand heavy-duty drawer slides. Each time I ordered, I received a shipping notice 1-2 business days (or even on the day I ordered), and received my order within 5 business days. Everything was accurately counted, ba...
