Woodpeckers multi knobs- fantastic!

Woodpeckers multi knobs- fantastic!

51 days ago by GoBlu | 3 comments »

I’ve used both these styles in various jigs,both the mini and regular multi knobs and cannot say enough good about them. I used to spend hours shopping around to find the right diameter knob with the right size thread and right length and the right type. These are very flexible in that you can use them as a through or studded knob. The minis come only in 1/4”, but the larger knobs come in 1/4”, 3/8” or 5/16” standard hex head bolts or nuts. The minis especially hav...

The classic K-Body formula lives on at an affordable price

The classic K-Body formula lives on at an affordable price

52 days ago by paxorion | 10 comments »

DISCLAIMER: The first part of the review is a first impression/use review. Please see my update below. I dare say that all woodworkers droll over building a wall full of clamps, and many of them probably wish they could stock it full of parallel clamps. However barring the rare blow-out sale, most of us aren’t able to afford the high cost of parallel clamps. I got into woodworking long after the Woodcraft and Harbor Freight stopped carrying their K Body clones, so the hopes of thi...

First impressions of the Anniversary Edition G0555 14" Band Saw

First impressions of the Anniversary Edition G0555 14" Band Saw

52 days ago by dansnow | 16 comments »

After nursing along my Dads old Craftsman 12” band saw, I was really looking forward to getting my new saw. After much research and pricing I had settled on the G0555LANV 14” for a number of reasons. It had a 1 HP motor where several others in the price range were 3/4HP. It had a cast iron frame and table instead of cast aluminum and stamped steel. The wheels were cast iron instead of cast aluminum and it had two speeds. But one of it’s biggest selling features to me was the...

A quick look at a product that was sent to me after I had built my “Between the Stud Cabinets”. I had cleats before to house the shelves but now I have more flexibility for any new changes! http://youtu.be/nKPn9OWfUr0

General International 50-200r

General International 50-200r

54 days ago by gotnonickname | 8 comments »

Purchased this saw after spending time debating which saw offering I was going to give my hard earned cash too. Looked at Grizzley, Saw Stop, Laguna, Steel City, Delta, Shop Fox,Craftsman and many others. I debated the safety aspects of all saws against the Saw Stop and came to the conclusion that for the amount of time I use my saw, and the fact that I am extremely anal about working safely, I ruled out Saw Stop because their price point in my opinion is way to high. Yes I hear it now, what ...

New Oliver 4230 8" Jointer

New Oliver 4230 8" Jointer

56 days ago by bons | 6 comments »

Just wanted to post some pictures of new Oliver 4230 jointer I recently set up in basement workshop. I looked at a lot of reviews before pulling tigger on Oliver. Really liked the weight at 655 lbs, long bed and overall look of machine. Took 4 of us to get it around and into to back walk out basement door. My two sons at 6’4 and 6’2 and son in law at 6’5. I helped but but at 63 and 5’9, not so much. Moral support. Removed bed and moved in two stages. The machine comes ...

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

56 days ago by wfedwar | 1 comment »

This review is for the 10-inch, 48-tooth, ultra thin kerf (5/64”) version of the TS2000 blade. I have used a number of different blades including cross cutting blades up to 96 tooth and ripping blades down to 24 tooth. Most are freud, some are dewalt,one delta, etc… This is my first Ridge Carbide blade. I got the 5/64” version because I am using a fairly underpowered Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I’ve always used thin kerf (3/32” or thereabout) with the sa...

Worth every dollar I paid for them

Worth every dollar I paid for them

59 days ago by paxorion | 14 comments »

OK, so my title might be a bit misleading. As a hobbyist, I don’t think I would be able to justify spending that healthy chunk of change on clamps if I paid the full retail price. Like many others, when the JET parallel clamps went on sale for 50% off during Black Friday 2013, I pulled the trigger to buy some, and I picked up the framing set (2×24” and 2×40” with the clamp blocks and bench-dog pins). Since I started using the JET parallel clamps, I’ve defi...

Almost a really good clamp

Almost a really good clamp

60 days ago by mramseyISU | 4 comments »

I recieved these clamps as part of a Mini Clamp-It set with two of the assembly squares which work really well and 4 of these clamps. I’ve had them for a little over a year and up until recently I really liked them. About a month back I was using them and as I tightened them down I noticed that the threads on the clamp were all bottomed out but they weren’t tight. That was funny I thought and then I noticed that the head was coming off of all of them. The flaw on these clamps is t...

Euro 32 Corner Clamp (plans only - shop made)

Euro 32 Corner Clamp (plans only - shop made)

60 days ago by wjt99 | 2 comments »

Price $6.5011 page detailed plans showing how to build and use this corner clampweb page – www.Euro32products.comCost of a single clamp – approx. $8.00 (if you use a hex nut instead of the cam lever cost is approx. $3.00) I found the plans to be very well written / drawn. Simple construction with no complicated joinery. The result is a clamp that is very well made and does what it claims. As designed it will work with 3/4” stock. It can work with different width stock wit...
