Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

04-09-2015 09:22 PM by DKV | 8 comments »

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

Cheap Woodcraft Wheel Marking Gauge--It works!

Cheap Woodcraft Wheel Marking Gauge--It works!

04-08-2015 01:02 PM by CharlesA | 16 comments »

Since I have been on my quest to learn to hand cut dovetails, I have been giving my marking gauge a workout. I have been using a Crown Rosewood cutting gauge, and I have been frustrated by my inability to make an absolutely straight clean line every time. I sharpened the knife on it and still would end with a wobble here and there. I thought that the combination of the cutting knife and the very short fence was the culprit: I checked reviews and was about to pull the trigger on a Ham...

New drum sander

New drum sander

04-07-2015 12:27 PM by Ladislav | 5 comments »

Hi everyone!! I finaly got bigger drum sander :))!! I used to had 16-32 performax but without sand smart, and it was ok but only after I removed the trip braker and bypass it. But still it was quite a work to get a full kitchen ( doors) thru it . And also annoying to have to do two passes on wider doors and not being able to keep sander set perfect to the table , but on the end it had to be lil higher wich meant i basicaly run everything twice , run once flip and in again . I was looking at 2...

Comparison of two inexpensive dovetail saws

Comparison of two inexpensive dovetail saws

04-03-2015 07:53 PM by CharlesA | 10 comments »

I am not a dovetail saw expert—this review reflects my experience with the Zona dovetail saw and the Crown Gents saw as I’ve been learning to hand cut dovetails. I’ve had the Crown Gents saw for a couple of years and picked up the Zona saw this week. The Zona saw is a U.S. made, very inexpensive saw. The fit and finish on the Zona is not too impressive. Compared to the Gents saw, the Zona saw cuts a little slower—that wasn’t too notable on 1/2” ply...

Excellent For Rough Turning

Excellent For Rough Turning

04-03-2015 02:46 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

This review is for the 18mm round (3 for $24) and the 15mm R2 (Radius Squared – 3 for $24) carbide insert cutters from Cap’n Eddie Castelin http://eddiecastelin.com/cutters_only. I was charged $3 shipping for all 6 cutters ordered at the same time. I think it took 6 days from order placement to delivery in Missouri. I listed these under Cap’n Eddie as the brand, but I know he sources them from somewhere, I just don’t know where. I’ve been pleased with the value ...

Sommerfeld Router Bit Sets

Sommerfeld Router Bit Sets

04-02-2015 03:54 PM by Woodmaster1 | 12 comments »

I purchased the router bit sets to make kitchen cabinets. The tongue and groove set works great for assembling the sides to the face frame, perfect match. the shaker raised panel is great as well. I had operator error problems at first, one call to Sommerfeld’s and problem solved. Marc Sommerfeld is the person that called me to solve my problem. That is what I call great customer service. I will post pictures of the new kitchen cabinets when they are finished sometime in August. At lea...

I have been dithering back & forth about writing this review. I ordered video #1 . It had a very pretty table with a copper top, and I wanted to learn how to do the copper. The videos claim to be step by step instruction. Well all episodes are 18 minutes long. How the heck can one give a step by step instruction on building much of anything in 18 mins? And when I watched the video on the copper table, well guess what? He gave ZERO info on how to do anything with the copper top..just ...

Oshlun HI-ATB Ultimate General Purpose

Oshlun HI-ATB Ultimate General Purpose

03-31-2015 10:17 PM by eljiggo | 4 comments »

Hello Everyone! After reading a review(a very old review at that) knottscott made on the Oshlun General Purpose 40t, I inquired about the Oshlun ULTIMATE general purpose, a hi-atb general purpose. Noone seemed to know anything, so amazon was nice enough to deliver one to me for $34.30. First Impressions: The blade has that aesthestic ferocity to it that only a 40t hi-atb blade can present. It was very sharp out of the box. Close inspection of the blade shows large carbide teeth (not qui...

Milling problem on table from manufacturer

Milling problem on table from manufacturer

03-31-2015 01:31 PM by RJRosa | 23 comments »

UpdateThis is a review of the customer service I’ve received from Grizzly for the above mentioned G0691 which arrived defective. I have not been able to use the saw yet and I will review that at a later time. If I ever get a working version. So I’ve been a member for a while but haven’t posted yet. I’m in the process of setting up my new 24×24 shop. After reading countless reviews and looking at my budget I decided on using the Grizzly brand for my large power ...
