Triton TRA001 review after owning several years

11-09-2018 03:45 PM by shawnn | 14 comments »

I tried other routers in my Incra router table. I have a Hitachi 12VC with fixed and plunge base that I used first. I tried “dialing” the fixed base up and down for height adjustment, that really sucked. Then I bought a Craftsman that had above table height adjustment, which I returned after the plunge base became wobbly after a single day of mortise plunge cutting. The motor of the Craftsman was really smooth running and I liked the slow start feature but I didn’t need it a...

Purple Power cleaner is great for cleaning blades & bits

Purple Power cleaner is great for cleaning blades & bits

11-09-2018 03:15 PM by shawnn | 6 comments »

I choked when I saw the price of some of the specialty products for blade/bit cleaning, being poor (cheap!), so I tried other common cleaners. I tried Simple Green, some orange stuff and other household cleaning products and nothing compared to Purple Power cleaner/degreaser. $5 a GALLON and it’ll clean everything just test first for color fastness. I’ll trade a bit of elbow grease to save cash, and with this stuff not much elbow grease is required. I spritz some on, let it sit a...

Picture sort of tells the storey, have had this mallet for a few years but never used it as found it to large for any purposes I had. Went to give a holdfast a tap and, well look what happened?Purchased a Wood is Good 12 oz. mallet a month ago and just by appearance and feel, can tell the difference.Needless to say my future purchases of any Shop Fox product may be influenced?

DIY Mini-split in my Garage

DIY Mini-split in my Garage

11-04-2018 10:09 PM by Breeze73 | 9 comments »

I installed the MrCool 24K DIY unit in my garage about 2 years ago. While I was doing my research in this system I saw that there was little feedback from those who have pulled the trigger. I bought mine from Ingram’s and posted a review there. But, I will save you the hassle of looking there and post a copy here: This unit has been A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! It wasn’t the easiest thing in the world to install as I wanted to install the air handler on one wall of my 800 sqft garage and th...

Deck demolition tool

Deck demolition tool

11-01-2018 04:45 PM by LesB | 7 comments »

I recently decided to replace my 1200 square foot, 22 year old, cedar deck with low maintenance composition decking so I searched for a tool to remove the old deck. I found several tools of similar design but I chose this particular tool because of the nail pulling cleats on the end of each pry lever. The tool straddles the deck joists (up to 3.5” wide) and the 44 inch handle makes prying the deck boards almost effortless. If you have ever tried to extract 3” galvanized nails fro...

Make the Ferrari of shooting boards

Make the Ferrari of shooting boards

10-29-2018 10:22 PM by ColonelTravis | 14 comments »

I’ve been using a totally handmade shooting board that’s worked fine (although it didn’t work great for 45s but that was my fault.) In the near future, I have some things to make that require odd angles, and I didn’t know off hand how I was going to do that, plus my 45s were not coming out right without constant adjustments, so when I saw this fence for the first time I said – screw it, I’m buying this thing. The fence has only been available for a few m...

Drum Sander

Drum Sander

10-25-2018 12:52 PM by Jarrhead | 6 comments »

Been wanting to add a drum sander to the shop for many years. Shopped hard for a decent used one on craigslist. There were some options out there in the used market, but they were either too big for my needs, or too expensive for their condition. I finally got prodded to take action by a project I started that involved some spalted wood. I found some gorgeous spalted tamarind for the carcase of a jewelry box I am making. Unfortunately, because of the spunky nature of the spalted wood, no...

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

Great way to organize drawers full of tools

10-23-2018 04:39 PM by EarlS | 8 comments »

I bought several sheets of FastCap Kaizen foam to use to organize my tool drawers after seeing pictures of it on Rockler’s website. I really like the way that I’m able to keep all of the tools displayed and organized so I know where they belong when I clean up the shop. I give it 4 stars rather than 5 because of the lack of instructions on how to properly work with the foam. The pictures on label don’t qualify as instructions. Rockler’s price and free shipping ma...

Could be Better

Could be Better

10-22-2018 03:46 PM by HankLP | 6 comments »

I really like the Grizzly G0771 table saw, and have used it for several years now. I was pleased to discover that Grizzly came out with an insert for the G0771, however, this rating lost two stars for the following: 1) The insert sits 0.020” higher than the original insert which means the leveling screws have to be readjusted when swapping the inserts. The ZC Inserts I make have oversized holes that fit over the screw heads. This allows a thicker edge on the insert, and the leveling...
