I guess that if you hear enough people saying the same thing, there might be some truth to it. This was the case with my recent Unisaw purchase. I went to pick the saw up at Lowes and when they brought it out it was packed in a fashion that was screaming damage me. It came in four separate boxes, the table saw body, the saw side table, the fence, and the bar that the fence sits on. As many other people have noted, the fence box and the side table box where destroyed. Laguna does a better job ...

An Exceptioinal Hand-Cut Rasp Alternative

An Exceptioinal Hand-Cut Rasp Alternative

12-23-2016 02:35 AM by BigRedKnothead | 11 comments »

Most woodworkers have heard of the qualites of hand cut/stiched rasps. They’re not the same animal as the machine-made buggers. But, like anything hand-made….Auriou, Liogier, Gramercy, those babies are expensive. Well, those crazy Italians came up with another option. What if you could use CNC technology to imitate the hand cur rasp? Well, they’ve done it. The Corradi company makes all kinds of files and rasps, but they call this their”Gold”line. You can re...

The perfect solution for my Powermatic 66

The perfect solution for my Powermatic 66

12-21-2016 02:25 AM by Holbs | 12 comments »

With my shop overhead dust collection completed, I knew the next thing to tackle was overhead dust collection for my Powermatic 66. The existing PM66 splitter was a pain, like any original splitter. I also needed a blade guard that I could see through. And finally, needed dust collection to end the spray of debris back toward my face during cuts. I have my PM66 face to face with my Unisaw (which also has my BenchDog cast iron router table fitted), so any Excalibur or Unisaw boom arm would...

Festool ETS EC 125/3 5" Random Orbit Sander

Festool ETS EC 125/3 5" Random Orbit Sander

12-13-2016 03:38 PM by TechTeacher04 | 7 comments »

I spent this summer working in a cabinet shop, this was my first exposure to Pneumatic sanders. They used 3m, Dynablade and Mirka variants. I liked the light weight and low center of gravity. I have been using Dewalt and Bosch 5” Random Orbit Sanders for personal projects and in my school classes. The finish was good but I was striving for a better result and to do it quicker. I was on a waiting list for the Festool Pro 5 sanders that sold out so quickly, while waiting I stopped by the ...

I have had the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw for just over a year and have had no issues with it. Saturday I was cutting some wet wood into turning blanks and burned up the drive belt. Monday morning I called Alex at Laguna customer service to order a new on, expecting to pay for it. Alex asked if I had registered it and the date of purchase. I had and was 4 days over the 1 year warranty. To my surprise they covered the belt and shipping. That sure did make my day !

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

Shop Fox Safety Issue - Be Warned

12-10-2016 03:15 PM by becikeja | 13 comments »

I have a small hobby shop and like to have my tools on mobile bases. The Shop Fox Mobile base seemed well made and strong. Assembly was simple enough, and it was easy to move into place and with a simple turn of the stabilizing screws quickly became immobilized when the bandsaw was in use. I was very happy with the product. A couple of weeks ago I took on the task of cleaning the shop. Behind the Bandsaw I found a chunk of rubber. I could not figure out where it came from. Then I be...

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

12-10-2016 02:22 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

Most of the time I write a review of a product after I give it a period of time to break or at least after a couple of extensive projects. I’ve decided to review this one after about two hours of use. Just wanted to as I was impressed. I’ll be back if things should go south over time. My Bosch sander, which I really liked, bit the dust a bit to soon for my tastes. It was a really good electric sander that had low vibration and worked well over the past three years. Since I&#...

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

12-09-2016 10:02 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

I finally ordered one of these collet systems from PSI because it has more range than the collets I how have and they can be used in the wood lathe or the metal lathe .All the collets came wrapped in plastic bags and oiled and the whole set is in a red plastic box. The collet holder is threaded for 1”-8 and it has a 3/4- 16 adapter for use on a mini lathe too.I thought the best way to evaluate them was to use an indicator and check for run out with a ground pin of the nominal sizes of t...

Generic German-Made Rip and Cross Cut Saws

Generic German-Made Rip and Cross Cut Saws

12-07-2016 01:15 PM by cicerojoe | 8 comments »

These hand saws are from Traditional Woodworker, a store based in Texas. You can buy either separately but you get a discount if you buy them as a set. They are labelled “Made in Germany” but otherwise have no markings. The handles look to be Beech and have simple steel hardware. If I had to choose my favourite between the two, it would be the rip saw had no problems with red oak and easily chews through douglas fir. When using this saw, gravity seems to provide much of the fo...

I just got my Grizzly G0715P delivered on Friday. Lift gate service dropped it right at my shop door. pulled the saw and smaller pallet off of the delivery pallet and into the shop with my fridge dolly. Not too much trouble.Got to it on Sunday to begin set up. took about an hour to get it onto the Shop Fox mobile base. No helper available…. Everything was going just fine until I tried to install the rear rail to the table for the fence. It has 4 bolts to do this talk, two M10-1.5&...
