BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

06-18-2015 07:13 PM by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

The BOSCH GCM12SD dual bevel glide saw is a remarkable tool that takes accuracy and ease of use to a new level. Now that I’ve completely let the cat out of the bag that I like this tool, lets see why. The most obvious features are the upfront controls and the super smooooooth axial glide that BOSCH has engineered and patented. These upfront controls not only allow for rotating the table, but also make it possible to tilt the blade left to right. Yes, that means you no longer have ...

A real workhorse

A real workhorse

06-17-2015 02:54 PM by mramseyISU | 14 comments »

I’ve had this planer for almost 2 years now so I’ve had plenty of time to make up my mind I think. I got it as a package with the add-on tables and an extra set of blades. Out of the box all I needed to do was get the tables attached and it was ready to go. One thing to know going into this you need something to direct the chips off of it. The chip blower REALLY works and wood chips will be flying all over. I made the mistake of using it without anything and it looked like a torna...

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

Lee Valley Veritas 'lipped' HSS Wood Drill Bits

06-16-2015 07:32 PM by NZSixNine | 7 comments »

I selected three of these – the two-hundred dollars for a complete set in 64’s was out of my range. As other reviewers noted, they are SHARP. Thus, be careful removing the plastic covering they ship with – I cut myself pulling it off the half-inch bit. As well, if you purchase individual bits – as I did – have a case ready fr them or plan on building one to protect them. Don’t use them in wood where nails may be present – as I did – for once ...

Great flush-cut saw

Great flush-cut saw

06-15-2015 02:23 PM by BinghamtonEd | 18 comments »

I’ve owned this saw for about 2 years now, and have been really pleased with it. I’ve used it for tasks ranging from flush-cutting hardwood dowels to trimming baseboard molding back in place to fit a heater. Just yesterday I used it to flush-cut some 1/4”x1/4” white oak filler strips. It’s still cutting well and very sharp. If this breaks, or wears down, or someone walks off with it, I will definitely go buy another one. I’ve tried a few dovetails with...

Chose G0715P over G0771

Chose G0715P over G0771

06-12-2015 10:29 PM by SoCalnewsaw | 6 comments »

Just received new G0715p. Lift gate delivery worth the $35 extra. I assembled on my own. Had to tip cabinet 45 degrees and support to remove pallet bolts. With bolts removed, lifted pallet way and tipped cabinet back up. Rating 4star until I get a chance to work more with the saw. Next step was to slide the shopfox base under the cabinet. Used long wrecking bar to lift cabinet edge and slip wood block to support. This left enough clearance to slide the base underneath in two pieces. Onc...

Akeda Works Like Magic

Akeda Works Like Magic

06-10-2015 11:50 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Okay when the hype of a new tool is gone, and the dust has settled… here is a review of an older Akeda dovetail jig. This may be a moot point, but hey you might find one on ebay. I have used four different types of dovetail jigs including Porter Cable, Leigh, and an off-brand jig. I felt comfortable with making dovetails, so flipping through the manual was not a big deal. Put the clamp in the correct position, snap in the guide fingers and dust chute and you are ready to rout. CL...

New Replacement Cartridge

New Replacement Cartridge

06-10-2015 12:49 AM by JimWhip | 27 comments »

I have owned a Pennstate Industries DC2V3 since 2011 and have been very please with it since then. This is my second dust collector from PS upgrading as my shop grew. The original canister on the DC2V3 lasted 4 years when I noticed it started to leak dust around the top edge. I called PS dust collector expert Bill and his initial response was that it should not leak, they should last a life time. After I sent him photographs of the canister he said that PS would replace the filter free of...

Great Jig and Even Better Customer Service - Amazing - pls read

Great Jig and Even Better Customer Service - Amazing - pls read

06-09-2015 03:30 PM by glen | 2 comments »

I bought the F3 template to go with my D4R dovetail jig as I was going to have a lot of box joints to build and I thought this would be the quickest way to go, rather than setting up a tablesaw jig, etc, especially since I already owned the D4R. I set everything up according to the manual, and went to go cut my first test board. Next thing I knew, the guide bushing had rattled free and was destroyed by my 1/2” spiral bit. Hmmm – I guess I didn’t tighten it enough. I or...

Kunz Plus #3 preliminary review

Kunz Plus #3 preliminary review

06-08-2015 01:04 AM by knockknock | 6 comments »

Why would I buy a Kunz plane? I blame it on Rob Lee (Lee Valley / Veritas) for not making a bevel down Number 3. I have been using a Wood River #3, but I like a full fisted grip. With my medium sized palm and small fingers, the Wood River #3 squeezes my hand when I use a full fisted grip. So after searching and translating many pages, I decided to try the Kunz Plus #3 which has an open tote / handle. A little background: I am not a highly experienced or professional wood worker. I am an am...

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

Grizzly 6" cast iron hand wheel

06-06-2015 04:27 AM by athomas5009 | 10 comments »

I ended up picking up a cpl of these to replace the garbage plastic OEM ones on my Cman 113 saw. I was a little lerious whether they would work because I ran across a few unhappy reviews because of difficulties modifying the fit. Well they arrived today and I couldn’t be happier! The are nice stuffy and turn real smoothly. Installation was a breeze and I don’t see why some would complain. As long as you have a drill press just bore the center hole to 1/2” then pop a 1/4&#...
