Well finally got a set of 5mm. boring bits and installed them in my machine. The bits fit quite tight into the 10mm chuck and I am hoping that when I need to change them out it can be done with no issues. The machine is quite noisy but there is a hearing protection required warning sign on it. I bored a couple sets of holes in a piece of baltic birch plywood and also a piece of pine, the machine worked fine and the bored holes were very clean with no tear out. This machine seems to be constr...

3 Blade Pack - Curve/Ripping/Resawing

3 Blade Pack - Curve/Ripping/Resawing

03-08-2015 11:38 AM by Alongiron | 23 comments »

I have been a long time user of Woodslicer band saw blades from Highland woodworking but a friend of mine told me that Timber Wolf blades cut better and are less expensive, so it was time for new blades and I went to www.timberwolfblades.com and ordered the 3 blade assortment pack: One each blade for Curve, Ripping and Resawing (14” with riser & 16” saws) 105”. With Shipping thee blades came to only $70. I liked the description of the blades: “Our exclusive use of low tensi...

Terrible machining but can be made to function decently with some scraping, filing and sanding.

Awesome blade

Awesome blade

03-08-2015 05:38 AM by TheFridge | 13 comments »

I got it for Christmas and have used the hell out of it. Rips and crosscuts cypress, pine, poplar, mahogany, wenge, sapele, walnut, maple, and ply like butter. There may be better blades out there for a little bit cheaper but I haven’t tried them. I’ve only used Freud Diablo blades and cheap hand me downs up to this point. I believe it costs about 45-50$ for Forrest to sharpen it back to factory specs so that is a plus.

Solid drill press

Solid drill press

03-08-2015 05:26 AM by TheFridge | 6 comments »

Ive been using it regularly for a couple weeks now. Mainly with a 5” cross slide vise to mill and drill wood and metal. Pros – being able to put the handles on either side of the press – runs smooth with little runout – the laser setup is actually nice for drilling consecutive holes. I haven’t found it to be off when adjusting table height – I didn’t have to pay more for an under powered jet benchtop. Cons- the base is a ...

New Oliver 4420 16 inch planer with Helical Head

New Oliver 4420 16 inch planer with Helical Head

03-07-2015 07:05 PM by bons | 2 comments »

I just got my new Oliver 4420 16” planer moved into my workshop. My workshop is a work in progress as I look forward to working less (NOT “RETIRING”) and spending time “working wood”. At 670 lbs., it was a challenge to get into my walk out basement workshop. I Rented a 1000 lbs. capacity dolly, recruited 3 really young, really big guys from our church home, fed them a “lumberjack’s ” breakfast and we went to work. I had built a ramp from 3/4 pl...

3 Piece Tool Rest

3 Piece Tool Rest

03-07-2015 03:16 AM by socrbent | 1 comment »

The 3 tool rests from Peachtree arrived quickly and were boxed very safely with tons of bubble wrap. I wanted the two curved ones for bowl turning. The 12” straight was a bonus which I have not yet used. The black powder coating is complete and smooth. There was a small rough spot on the top of the larger curved rest that hasn’t caused problems yet, but I plan to remove it with a file although I hate the idea of removing some of the the finish as lathe tools currently move smoothl...

A good value.....

I think I’m the first to review this saw so I’ll be as thorough as possible. Please forgive any sloppy typing. My computer is dead so I’m on my phone. Anyway I was in the market for a 120 volt saw and had it narrowed down to this grizzly or the new delta 36-725. I ended up with the grizzly. 1. Customer service I ordered over the phone as I had some questions about shipment. The lady that took my call was a pleasure to deal with and knew her stuff. The order process ...

The Ultra Carver......Two Thumbs Up.

The Ultra Carver......Two Thumbs Up.

03-06-2015 09:41 PM by thechipcarver | 0 comments »

This is my first review so bare with me. I found the Ultra Carver two weeks ago while searching for some power carvers. Here is the wesite: www.ultracarver.comI have read so many articles and website about power carvers it is unreal. What I have found is that you can go small (30,000 rpm) or go big (300,000+ rpm). Until now…..(I know, I sound like an infomercail) Let put a scale, 1 through 5. 5 being the best while 1 being, you got it, I wouldn’t give it to my worst en...

Two weeks in - Solid saw, many many minor complaints

Two weeks in - Solid saw, many many minor complaints

03-06-2015 07:32 PM by wolfinator | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: this is my first band saw. Indeed, the first time I have USED any band saw. So I don’t have much of a basis for comparison. However, after two weeks with this saw I think I can give a pretty good ‘new-user’ perspective. I really struggled with the star rating. This seems to be a fundamentally good saw, and I don’t necessarily regret it. However, the last two weeks have seen a lot of frustrations that I was not expecting from the fancy Porter-Cable ...
