Dewalt DW735

Dewalt DW735

01-23-2008 02:09 AM by Ray | 14 comments »

I have really worked this tool for many hours lately and am totally impressed with its performance. It is pricy but has received a number of best product recognitions in magazine articles in their plainer reviews. It’s easy to adjust and feed wood through. You must use a vacuum system with it! It’s 13” wide capacity should cover most boards you want to plain down.It has a three knife cutter-head which helps extend the life of the knife. The blades are easy to change and t...

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

01-23-2008 02:02 AM by pastor_shane | 8 comments »

Now I know what some of you may be thinking. Putting a JessEm MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 is well, kinda like putting a bored out 350 engine into a Chevy Citation. But with the mastRSlide, I have been able to achieve very accurate and just as importantly consistent results with this set-up. While someday I hope to be able to afford a hybrid or full-blown cabinet saw, the mastRSlide has allowed me to take on projects that I otherwise would never have dared attempt on the Bosch 4000 alone. ...

3D Router Carver System by CMT

3D Router Carver System by CMT

01-23-2008 01:50 AM by Ray | 4 comments »

Quite a few years ago I purchased a CMT 3D Router Carver System by CMT.My first project was the front of a cedar chest I built for my oldest son as a wedding gift. It allowed me add a professional looking carving on the front of the chest without screwing it up since I do not know how to carve. I have had this tool for at least 10 years and for a while it went out of production but a couple of years ago they reintroduced it. It is easy to set up and as long as you have a ½” plunge rout...

Delta Dust Collector Model 50-760

Delta Dust Collector Model 50-760

01-23-2008 12:34 AM by CutNRun | 6 comments »

I also have this dust collector and have been very pleased with it. The one micron top bag does an excellent job of filtering. My garage shop is small and I simply move the dust collector around or switch the hose from one machine to another. At this point I don’t intend to add any piping other than to perhaps rig something for my router table. Prior to purchasing the Delta unit, I used an old Sears shop vacuum. The Delta unit is much quieter and does a dramatically better job. ...

The Most Powerful Cordless Drill You'll Ever Own

The Most Powerful Cordless Drill You'll Ever Own

01-22-2008 11:09 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

Millers Falls started making bit braces in 1864. The 772 with a 10-inch sweep was produced from 1914 to 1957. One of the main features is its “Lion” chuck, which allows it to hold square, round or tapered shanks with ease. Indeed, I have had used both auger bits as well as “regular” wood boring bits normally used in electric drills. Someone who has never used a bit brace will be surprised at the power you have with it, whether boring holes or say, driving screws! An...

Great saw for a beginning woodworker

Great saw for a beginning woodworker

01-22-2008 06:29 AM by jstewart | 4 comments »

I’ve owned my saw for only a year now, so I haven’t had as much time with it as many of the other LJs out there. Still I think I’ve become good friends with it already. As a person that is new to woodworking, I think this saw is outstanding. Up front, let me make this clear. The model number 36-979 refers only to the saw with 2 cast iron wings. I bought the Delta 36-980 which is the saw (36-979) plus a 30” T-fence. Other Delta models such as the 36-977, 978, 98...

A very versatile block plane

A very versatile block plane

01-22-2008 04:17 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 4 comments »

This Skewed Block Plane can be used for many operations. It can be used to work on end-grain, like a standard block plane. It has a fence and nicker so that you can work on tenons and rabbets. The nicker can be moved so that it is engaged or not. I’ve used it to clean up some tenons and it work beautiful. The skew blade really helps to reduce tear-out when going across the grain. I haven’t added an auxiliary fence to mine yet, but it’s coming soon. It come in Iron o...
