First impressions of the Anniversary Edition G0555 14" Band Saw

First impressions of the Anniversary Edition G0555 14" Band Saw

48 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...

Simple, Inexpensive Shop or Cabinet Storage Solution

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

50 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

52 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

52 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

55 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

55 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)

56 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...

I've tried a few blades but this one does it.

I've tried a few blades but this one does it.

56 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

Usually in my old Rockwell/Delta table saw I use a combination blade. I do very little crosscutting in my table saw as it’s not new and doesn’t have a super fence on it. My main use of it is to cut my wood to width in the jointing/planing process of readying the wood to use. I own a nice sliding combo 12” Bosch miter saw that I do all of my crosscutting with. The combination of the two saws lets me get by pretty good. I tried a couple of rip blades in the past few years....

Something this heavy should work!

Something this heavy should work!

57 days ago by shu | 22 comments »

This is a poorly designed sander.You would think that if a tool weighed as much as a submarine, it would be steady worker, but the Grizzly GO458 takes a break about every 30 minutes and decides to adjust itself where it wants to be.Seriously, it has many design problems.The feed belt will only stay in adjustment while you are watching it. It must be a quantum physics thing. After about a half hour of sanding, when your hands and mind are fixed on keeping it from sniping your work, because the...
