In the Greene & Greene Style and Greene & Greene Design Elements for the Workshop

09-11-2018 08:39 PM by Jerry | 23 comments »

I just bought these two excellent books. Best investment in woodworking books I’ve made to date. Richly illustrated and photographed these books represent many many years of research and production of Greene and Greene masterworks. Detailed sketches, plans, templates, jigs, and techniques abound. If this is not the definitive guide to all things Greene & Greene and how to make them yourself, then I don’t know what is. If you want to make Greene & Greene furniture, then these...

Grizzly 6"x80" Edge Sander, It's worth every cent

Grizzly 6"x80" Edge Sander, It's worth every cent

09-11-2018 08:05 AM by WoodenDreams | 5 comments »

This Edge Sander is a bench top model. I choice this instead of Floor Model so it would have wood storage under it, with my limited space. This sander is mounted on a 24” high bench. To help with dust collection I taped some construction paper to the inlet area. This extended the dust collection area. If I need more of the belt available I untape it and retape It back up. I keep in stock extra belts (2 each of 80, 120, 180 & 220 grit). The belts only takes less than a minute to chan...

Great for a hobbist

Great for a hobbist

09-08-2018 04:40 AM by WoodenDreams | 8 comments »

I bought the Grizzly G0771Z in April 2017. I did send Grizzly a poor review after the purchase, But, after the first 3 month of usage, I sent Grizzly a revised, but good review….. I was going to buy the Grizzly G0833P, but the salesman over the phone told me to buy the G0771Z. Reason was the shipping crate size, had to fit thru a certain boor. When I received it I took everything out of crate & dolleyed it in. The G08339P would had fit through. The rail attaching to the back of the ...

Cen-Tech Digital High Resolution Inspection Camera

Cen-Tech Digital High Resolution Inspection Camera

09-07-2018 03:22 PM by Tennessee | 1 comment »

Repairing stringed instruments, now that I own one of these, I wonder how I got along without it in the past, using long handled mirrors and such. And repairing my larger woodworking tools, those with things like complicated control boxes, looking into my planer dust collector, this is really nice. I was told by a mechanic that I know who owns one that you should pop for the more expensive one. Not only is the resolution much better, the taking of still pictures and videos is very helpfu...

Capable and handy chainsaw

Capable and handy chainsaw

09-07-2018 03:06 AM by swirt | 10 comments »

Since I no longer live in the forest and am now mainly surrounded by annoying palm trees, I haven’t used my gas chainsaw in over a decade. When I went to use it to help me slab some oak, it needed a lot of work to get it running again. I knew it would sit dormant for a long time and require more work to get it running the next time. I wanted something simpler, something more reliable. I picked the Black and Decker CS1518 [amazon] I liked it for the following reasons: Under...

Mill your own lumber

Mill your own lumber

09-05-2018 01:01 AM by scopemonkey | 5 comments »

My sister took down a decent sized cherry tree from her yard, and I hauled away the trunk and figured I would find a way to get it milled. Well, after a little fooling around with Google and YouTube, I found something I never knew existed…a chainsaw portable sawmill. OK, you lumberjack lumberjocks probably already knew this, but I was rather excited and got one on Amazon for about $120. My brother=in-law had the chainsaw, so we went to work. This is made out of aluminum and stainles...

Trend AirShield Pro

Trend AirShield Pro

09-04-2018 04:25 PM by Ben Mclellan | 23 comments »

My first review was so convoluted that I decided to remove it . I have included a couple of photos of my work show that I do have some understanding of what is required and should be provided as far as dust protection is concerned . First off what right does Trend have to call it a PRO? Clearly on page 2 of the instruction manual, the first item under TECHNICAL DATA clearly states QUOTE : Warning The TREND AIRSHIELD PRO is not a RESPIRATOR nor a NIOSH approved device. Using the power v...

One irritating flaw

One irritating flaw

09-04-2018 12:18 AM by Pixxture | 11 comments »

Jet appears to have just released a version that may or may not replace the saw reviewed here. Decided to place this on LJ anyhow…the new saw may gave the same flaw. JWBS-14DXPRO 14” Deluxe Band Saw Purchased this from Rockler, about a year ago. As usual ordering a drop shipment is a frustrating roller coaster. However, the package arrived in reasonable condition. Assembly was fairly straight forward. The only comment about the construction is the assembly manual is...

Small 9" bandsaw from Grizzly

Small 9" bandsaw from Grizzly

09-03-2018 02:37 PM by Jim Finn | 6 comments »

I have a 14” bandsaw, that is set up for resawing, but I needed another to make small toys. I purchased this saw this year and have used it a lot. I run 3/16” blades on it cutting small toys requiring curves. It works well and the only issue I have had is, one of the guide bearings failed. I replaced it with a sealed bearing that I bought from a local bearing shop for $7. The saw comes with shielded guide bearings, as do many saws, but sealed bearings are better. I not...

Planer upgrade

Planer upgrade

08-31-2018 12:38 PM by Jarrhead | 6 comments »

So, I upgraded the planer in the shop. Went from the old tried and true Jet JPM-13 Planer Moulder, to a Grizzly G0453W. I wanted a little larger capacity, and a higher horsepower motor. Found the planer, used, on Craigslist for $1000. It needed a little lovin’, but overall was in pretty good shape. Some surface rust, and a worn out set of blades. The G0453W is kind of a Grizzly anomaly. They apparently only manufactured it for a year or two, and it is now discontinued. I can’t find an...
