Excellent For Rough Turning

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 07:54 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

04-01-2015 02:17 AM 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

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 ...

The Rikon 10-345, 18 inch Bandsaw

The Rikon 10-345, 18 inch Bandsaw

03-31-2015 12:43 PM by ncdon | 8 comments »

It’s been about 6 weeks since I picked up my new saw so I’ve had some time to create saw dust with it. The Rikon 18 replaced a PC 14 which I’ve used for several years.First impressions. This saw is big, it’s heavy, so if you bring one home, have a friend or two handy. My saw was well packed in it’s shipping crate and had no damage. Assembly amounted to mounting the table, assembling the fence and mounting some hand wheels. Tuning is well covered in the owner...

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

03-29-2015 02:24 AM by woodenwarrior | 16 comments »

I’m pretty certain I’m going to catch crap for posting this product for review because it’s not necessarily a woodworking product but I believe that once you hear me out you’ll think twice and be willing to give the product a try. Every wood worker gets boo-boos. It’s in the nature of our passion. I have yet to find a band-aid like product that will sufficiently cover the wound and stay stuck while still being able to use my hands in the motions I require whe...

An amazing help experience

An amazing help experience

03-28-2015 06:35 PM by andy_P | 2 comments »

This is probably not necessary because I am sure you more experienced and knowledgeable woodworkers have run across this site already. I had a problem with a keyless entry lock that I had purchased from ACE but was unable to find the “Helpful Hardware Man” when I ran into problems setting up the codes. The instructions were written in broken Chinese and even my wife, who knows all, wasn’t able to figure it out. Since the “Helpful Hardware Man” was unable to ...

I purchased arbortech’s contour Random orbit sander. I build a lot of maloof style furniture and this little baby is a life and time saver. If you watch the YouTube video made by arbortech. There is no BS. It works as advertised. The rubber head can be replaced if needed (15-20 dollars). It is made well and with a little care will out last me. It uses sticky back paper which you can order from arbortech or do like me buy 5 or 6 inch discs and with a sharp pair of scissors make your...

WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane

WoodRiver #62 Low Angle Jack Plane

03-26-2015 02:44 PM by Redoak90 | 12 comments »

I bought the WoodRiver #62 a few weeks ago and I have really enjoyed using it. Out of the box it requires a little tuning but only 30 minutes or so. The blades were not sharp at all and they were not flat either. Using DMT diamond stones coarse and fine then a leather strop the blades sharpened up quickly and hold an edge all day. The sides are square and the sole is reasonably flat. There was a slight hollow in the sole but I was able to remove it by running it along a 4”x36”...
