Awesome blade

Awesome blade

02-05-2017 10:34 AM by Dedvw | 8 comments »

Once I discovered that the stock blade that came with my Delta Unisaw was the cause of my lousy cuts, I bought the thin kerf riving knife and the Irwin Marples 50T blade. This blade produces the nicest cuts I’ve seen and does it a little quieter than the stock blade. I’ve used all kinds of high end table saws (Powermatic, Delta, Jet), some with Forrest blades on them. I know it might sound crazy but this blade cuts as nice as any of the Forrest blades I’ve used. No burns, no...

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

02-04-2017 10:23 PM by cicerojoe | 7 comments »

This rapid fuse CA glue for wood is relatively new. Maybe a year since it was brought to market. I have seen the fast cap and hot stuff and other similar products which require the glue to be sprayed with an activator for instant cure. These look good but I never pulled the trigger, especially because I’d have to get them mailed to me. Anyway, I saw this Dap rapid fuse at home depot and a couple things caught my attention. 1st I remembered reading about this in a woodworking magazine...

A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

02-04-2017 07:44 PM by Matt | 13 comments »

This was purchased from a local Woodcraft with the help of SuperMax tools putting together a package (the SKU didn’t exist) with the closed stand instead of the open stand that comes with it by default. The sander goes together very easily, as does the stand and getting it tuned up is also very easy to do. My sander was off a little on the conveyor tracking, but that was easily fixed in about 5 minutes. The results that I’ve seen with it so far are nothing short of outstanding...

iVAC Automatic Blast Gate System

iVAC Automatic Blast Gate System

02-04-2017 01:34 PM by JerryinCreek | 3 comments »

I thought of adding an automatic blast gate system to my shop every time I forgot to open/close a gate. (I actually thought I’d stop doing that, but I didn’t.) Then I saw the review by pintodeluxe (aka, Willie) and I decided to do some more research and eventually purchased the system through Infinity. The technician at iVAC (Dave) was extremely knowledgeable and always courteously responded to my questions, from pre-purchase to set up. I started by mounting a piece of 3/4̶...

Infinity Shipping Issue

Infinity Shipping Issue

01-31-2017 02:09 PM by TomSanDiego | 38 comments »

I needed to replace the blades on my DeWalt 735 and my Powermatic 8 inch jointer. I did some research and most folks talked about the Infinity blades. So, I ordered them on December 31, 2016. They emailed back and said they would email me again when the blades shipped. Two weeks later, no email on the shipment. I emailed them and got no response. I called and got a machine. It took over three weeks to get my blades. In a day when vendors like Amazon get you items the next day, three w...

Irwin Max Speed Speed Bore bit

Irwin Max Speed Speed Bore bit

01-30-2017 10:33 PM by Mainiac Matt | 13 comments »

I borrowed one of these from a carpenter in our crate shop at work and was really impressed with how fast and clean it cut. So when I saw them at Ace Hardware I picked up a 3/4” one. Tonight I broke it out to drill some add’l holes in my bench. I like it a lot. It ate up the hard Maple like it was pine. Pros:1. Pilot grabs hold and pulls the bit right through the wood.2. The three cutting edges really cut fast. They are very sharp.3. Both the entry and the exit holes...

Ironton 10 in Multi-Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Ironton 10 in Multi-Sliding Compound Miter Saw

01-30-2017 08:34 PM by OldCoach | 3 comments »

I decided to add a sliding miter saw to replace a Ryobi miter saw in the shop. However, it had to fit in my miter saw station that is 26” deep. That left me with few choices-Bosch, Hitachi, Makita and the Craftsman Compact were the major players. All of these would fit in my station. Since all my saws use 10” blades, I preferred to stay with a 10” model. Of course cost was also a major factor, preferring to stay under $250. That pretty much left the Craftsman. I found a coup...

Karcher WD5-P Vacuum

Karcher WD5-P Vacuum

01-28-2017 12:02 PM by MAKZ06 | 5 comments »

I thought I would go ahead and post a review since I asked in the forum if anyone had experience with this vacuum and I didn’t get any response. For the cost it wasn’t going to end up being a huge mistake so I went ahead and took the plunge and ordered one from Amazon. I would have purchased from the local Woodcraft but when I called them nobody could tell me anything more about it than what I saw in the documentation and didn’t seem interested in checking for me even thou...

Laguna fusion table saw

Laguna fusion table saw

01-27-2017 08:34 PM by Hermit | 8 comments »

I’ve had this saw about a month now. It’s a major step up for me being out of woodworking for 20 plus years. Having just built my shop, this is my first major tool purchase second to a dust collector. I’m basically starting all over again.I did a lot of research, read a lot of reviews etc as others have done. I chose this saw for several reasons. 1. Great reviews on multiple websites.2. Appears to be good enough for an almost retired hobbiest. 3. Dust collection port on the ...

Establish or Determine Angles [for Turning Knives & Such]

Establish or Determine Angles [for Turning Knives & Such]

01-27-2017 03:28 PM by Kelly | 3 comments »

It’s a good thing I like toys. The reason I say that is, I have a significant layout tool collection grown out of both that I find myself laying out everything from straight lines or circles and arcs, curves to letters and numbers, so I find need for verifying a variety of setups and layouts. For the foregoing reasons, I have all manner of triangles, rulers, straight edges, tapes, compasses, curves, gauges lettering templates and so on. Some are more useful for a given project than ...
