a good deal...??

a good deal...??

30 days ago by steve | 28 comments »

Not sure whether or not I am supposed to say that something is on sale somewhere, but I thought it sounded like a good deal, and wondered how others found these chisels to be. Stanley Sweetheart Series 750 Chisels. I have a Woodriver set, and some ole Irwins now, but want to upgrade. Stanley Sweetheart Series 750 Chisels – $99 – 4 pc set, 1/4” – 1”, w/leather pouch

SawStop Overarm Dust Collection - worth it, but flawed connection

SawStop Overarm Dust Collection - worth it, but flawed connection

30 days ago by Kenyon94 | 9 comments »

Someone asked me a follow-up question on my review of my SawStop 3HP PCS, and I thought it would be worth it to answer it in a standalone review for others to see. I’d noted in my review that I had to buy a different connection for the overarm dust collection assembly, which is one of the optional accessories with the SawStop table saws. In general, I really like the extra dust collection capabilities of this accessory – for most cuts, there’s just no dust left over on th...

router edge and circular cuts, at it's best

router edge and circular cuts, at it's best

30 days ago by Holbs | 6 comments »

I’ll start by admitting, I did not buy this at full retail price ($400+) but at an auction for $30. I guess nobody else knew what this was. And I have only used the circular jig attachment, not the router edge yet (I have my Bosch RA deluxe router guide with dust control). For the home hobby wood worker, I could think of better ways for a circular jig. But for the professional, this would definitely be in my arsenal. The Microfence made cutting circles of 7”-infinity easy. Y...

for $32, can not go wrong

for $32, can not go wrong

30 days ago by Holbs | 8 comments »

I was in need to make 6” and 6 1/4” circles for my dust collection HVAC blast gates and support holders. My Microfence circular router jig CAN go as low as 6”, but I had to install a Bosch router adapter which changes the minimum diameter to 7”. I’ve reviewed other circle cutters and decided on the Grizzly because it looks more “stout” and there are zero reviews I could find so … a crap shoot :) I could of went with a hole saw but that is a f...

an oldie but goodie, for LIGHT use.

an oldie but goodie, for LIGHT use.

30 days ago by Holbs | 2 comments »

I picked this up at a local auction for $5, put it all together and was afraid to power on the drill for this contraption looks somewhat deadly. It came with a belt guard that I did not install (I will, though) so I can see just how this modern machinery marvel operates as the yellowish rubber band belt looks like it’s about to fling off the 2” silver circle pulley. I changed to the fastest RPM (3200) the little 10” drill press could go. This little device (who engineers...

GREAT FEATURES/GREAT VALUE!

GREAT FEATURES/GREAT VALUE!

31 days ago by jeffwedekind | 6 comments »

A VERY HIGH 4 STAR A year or two ago I decided to get into the pocket hole joinery kick for basic carcasse construction. At the time I bulit a jig to house the jig and accesories, and I finally got around to posting the project. (seen here) Many of the comments focused on which jig this was, so I thought it high time to do a review. (Not to mention this RARE gem from HF deserves a positive nudge. After much consideration and research, I chose the (dare I say it) Harbor Freight jig....

Tormek DBS-22 drill sharpening attachment

Tormek DBS-22 drill sharpening attachment

31 days ago by Dan Krager | 6 comments »

I’ve had a problem with blowout when drilling wood. It didn’t seem to matter what point was on the twist drill, or how sharp it was, it pulled up small splinters when entering and no matter how slow the feed or how good the back up was, there was blowout on the back. I had invested in several sets of bits including some pricey brad points with spurs from Germany, but the problem persisted in one form or another. It was especially bad if I got in a hurry and didn’t take sp...

Harbor Freight Carbide Faced Carving Disc  for 4 1/2" Grinder

Harbor Freight Carbide Faced Carving Disc for 4 1/2" Grinder

32 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 11 comments »

I had to carve 2” off the diameter of 4 1/2” pistachio tree that was 50” long and needed something to take off a lot of material without loading up or wearing out. So I tried one of the half donut shaped carving wheels from HF that has pieces of carbide embedded in it. I usually don’t like the cutting tools or sand paper from HF, but this carving wheel is one great abrasive tool. It cut all that wood away and is still sharp enough to do it again. I hate to say that I ...

Best used Tool I ever purchased

Best used Tool I ever purchased

I got this Ryobi 1300 Planer 3 years ago…I took a shot at it for $100 used, but actually almost new…the owner passed away just after buying it, and his wife sold it to me, I would have given her more, but that’s all she wanted. I have the box, receipt, EVERYTHING!I’ve had a Delta, and and an ole General…I gotta give this Ryobi the props though…and it is the ONLY Ryobi tool I own…I am not a big fan, but this older 1300 is a great design. The lock is...

Stanley Fat Max 15" handsaw - Fantastic!

Stanley Fat Max 15" handsaw - Fantastic!

33 days ago by Joe Lyddon | 10 comments »

I just received this saw, tried it out, and it cuts like a DREAM! Easy start… cuts…. Very study blade… stays nice and straight. Very comfortable hardwood handle with a nice rubber hand-hold. Super Nice! One nice thing I just noticed, that I didn’t think was going to be there, the Handle-to-Blade at top is 90 so you can use it to draw a straight 90 line like a T Square. At the bottom Handle-to-Blade is 45 so one can draw a 45 like a T Square. I love it...
