Quickbench...its quick, its a bench, but it won't replace your workbench

I bought two of these Quickbench folding work tables more than a year ago. My thinking was they would be great for my 1 car garage shop. They can be folded up and set against the wall to get out of the way and give me some more room around the shop. The main features- the top has dog holes, and a vice, and comes with some plastic dogs. -there is a tray in each top where you can put screws and small tools and have them out of the way of the work surface, and secure- The tops can fold dow...

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

05-05-2016 05:28 PM by Matt | 13 comments »

I purchased this saw after finally committing to building out my long dreamed about woodshop. I had a bunch of contractor/jobsite grade tools and didn’t really have any experience with professional grade WW tools. Background: (I’m a hobbyist) Originally I had purchased a Ridgid R4510 (R45101) and it failed while trying to rip 12/4 poplar. Sure…... it was a lot for it to cut, but what’s the point of a blade height of 3 1/4” when it can’t cut that much...

This isn’t a blade review, but I’ve bought several and been pleased with all of them. (I recommend the 3-pack for the price and versatility – one for curves, one for rip and one for reswaw for less than $100.) Will continue to buy from them, especially now. Not long ago I ordered a replacement 3/4” and I could not get the thing to stop wobbling at least 1/4 inch back and forth. Messed with every adjustment imaginable and nothing worked. I thought maybe I even screwed u...

I upgraded my old mid 50s Delta, it had some issues So I ordered this Saw from CPO, the Mobile base arrived in a big box with no packing at all, both the wheel locks were broken, I thought jeez hope the saw comes in better shape. And it did saw was packed very well in three boxes also the riser was included in its own box with all its access, at no charge it was included so that was nice.The saw was fairly easy to set up a earlier poster complained about the motor being hard to hang this ...

Several months ago I posted a negative review on the Shelix replacement head for my Dewalt 735. The problem was that the replacement heads are normally slightly smaller in diameter which makes it possible to install a Shelix with all the cutters in place through the main bearing seat on the drive end. However, I found the reduced diameter to be a problem as now I had snipe and a reduced cutting range and increased roller pressure. After a couple of phone calls and emails to Byrd Tool, th...

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

04-27-2016 10:11 PM by Redoak49 | 4 comments »

I had added this Milwaukee M12 drill to my Christmas list this year. I had tried it at the store and it was a nice size. Thankfully, my wife got it for me and it came in a kit with the drill/driver, charger, two batteries and the Hackzall. The drill driver works well and has plenty of power and a good clutch on it. It is solidly built and feels good in my hand. It is now my go to drill/driver and is lighter than the 18V one that I have. The chuck works well and it is easy to tighten a...

Powermatic PJ-882HH 8-Inch Parallelogram Jointer & Mobile Base Review

Powermatic PJ-882HH 8-Inch Parallelogram Jointer & Mobile Base Review

04-26-2016 05:06 PM by JBrow | 9 comments »

Purchase Decision. Woodworking is a hobby in my 2 car commandeered garage. I thought it time to upgrade from my 6” Craftsman jointer with its 36” long bed. The Craftsman never let me down since the late 1980’s, continued to work well, and was a great entry level jointer. However, it lacked the convenience of a long and wide bed. Replacing straight knives was always a challenge. In addition to an 8” wide X long bed, I wanted a helical cutter head and tables mounted with a parallelogram...

CBN WHEEL

CBN WHEEL

I’m pretty new to turning, I’ve been learning and listening to all the advice from all the veterans on here. I have a wet grinder but that was not working for sharpening my chesils. All the help on here and Dave from D – Way Tools recommended the CBN. I bought the 180 grit 8 inch for my new Rikon 1 hp slow speed grinder. I bought the Wolverine jig as recommended as well. I have to say once set up this is amazing and everything everyone said it would be. My chesils are ra...

Does what it's supposed to do...  with a bit of frustration

Does what it's supposed to do... with a bit of frustration

04-20-2016 06:25 PM by vulgarviking | 2 comments »

They say hind sight is 20/20. I recently bought this because my stand alone Craftsman (diecast deluxe router table and cabinet) was taking up too much space in my one car garage and with the recent purchase of my Delta 36-5000, I needed all the space possible. So, I sold the Craftsman and rather than take the money to build a router table between the saw’s rails, I bought the Bosch. And the reason why I choose this is because the table is exactly 27 inches and with some modifications...
