Great Saw - Keep it in Context

Great Saw - Keep it in Context

03-21-2015 06:20 PM by tblake1984 | 12 comments »

I have had this saw for two weeks and felt I had used it enough to write a balanced review of it. As you can see from the pics, I have added a router table extension, sacrificial fence, and a router fence. In summary, it is exactly what I was looking for. The footprint is perfect for a basement or garage shop and the mobile base works extremely well and is built to handle this 260lb saw. Getting the saw home is a bear. I was doing it solo and I have a basement workspace so I actually e...

New Sheave

New Sheave

03-21-2015 05:52 AM by B4B | 8 comments »

When I was looking for replacement sheaves for my table saw, finding reviews and specific products was hard to find. There’s the in-line tune up kit that comes with a belt and two “pulleys”. I wasn’t took keen on purchasing that kit since I already had a link belt, plus the additional shipping charge didn’t do anything for me. After poking around I found this pair on Amazon, for about $11 each. I decided to give them a go. I was pleasantly surprised. They had ...

Good Belt

Good Belt

03-21-2015 05:44 AM by B4B | 11 comments »

So I found a couple 25% off coupons for Harbor Freight. I decided to pickup a link-belt to replace the worn belt on my table saw as part of the tune-up I did recently. The old rubber belt was worn, and I read a lot of good things about these link belts in general, as well as generally good reviews for the Harbor Freight link belt. The one I picked up was labeled “Jason Industrial Inc” and was green in color. I was able to get it sized up and installed in no time. I fired up ...

Great Calipers

Great Calipers

03-21-2015 05:34 AM by B4B | 6 comments »

I got this caliper some time ago, but have not had a chance to put it to use. Well during my table saw rebuild project I put it to use. I bought this based on the name, and the reviews other folks have provided for other wixey measuring devices (planer, table saw, etc) so I decided to give this a go. Overall I’m impressed with this, and would definitely recommend it, if you need a set of calipers. I used it to measure the bearings, the overall height, diameter, as well as the bore...

Hickory & Oak: Lumber in West Michigan

Hickory & Oak: Lumber in West Michigan

03-20-2015 11:50 AM by ChipByrd | 4 comments »

I have now had a couple dealings with Hickory and Oak sawmill in Decatur, Michigan. Just before Thanksgiving, I picked up some quartersawn white oak that was gorgeous. About two weeks ago I picked up about 30 BF of curly cherry that was also beautiful. That will be used to make my wife a sewing station. While I was there, I also put in an order for about 125 BF of quartersawn white oak to be picked up near the end of May. That will be going toward a mission style bed and chest of drawers. ...

Segmented Turning Software

Segmented Turning Software

03-18-2015 03:18 PM by OSU55 | 3 comments »

I became interested in segmented turning because of the flexibility in design it provides. There are a lot of ways of approaching the design, from guesstimating, laying it out full size on paper, building your own spreadsheet to auto calculate segment sizes etc., using some online calculators, or software. I found all of the online calculators worked, but didn’t help with overall layout and design. I was about ready to start building my own spreadsheet calculator when I found this produ...

after 7 years of use my festool ts75 is still a work horse money maker.

03-18-2015 03:23 AM by vonhagen | 31 comments »

when i first used my new festool saw i didn’t really realize it’s full potential but after 7 years of heavy use i have made very difficult cuts that would require jigs and or special table saw setups and router setups a thing of the past.i have made very long compound angle cuts upside down,vertical and horizontal,stack cut whole bundles of exotic veneers and stitch them up with no blow out and with perfect seams. the plunge feature and its stop give you the ability to cut out sla...

Jointer Blades from Infinity Cutting Tools

Jointer Blades from Infinity Cutting Tools

03-17-2015 07:25 PM by frosty50 | 5 comments »

I was very impressed with Infinity Cutting Tools customer service. I ordered a set of new blades for my jointer as they were in desperate need of replacing. My son had used the jointer and the results were several nicks in the blade at least 1/16” in depth. My local sharpening shop recommended replacement do to the damage. I ordered them on-line and Infinity processed the order within a day and I received them through the mail within the allotted time. I was excited to get back to the s...

Laguna 14/12 vibration issues fixed

Laguna 14/12 vibration issues fixed

03-17-2015 03:48 PM by greatview | 17 comments »

I recently set up a new 14/12 bandsaw and found no vibration issues as have been previously reported on this forum. It looks as if Laguna solved whatever problems they might have had. I did make a couple of modifications as described by Randy Woodworker on his youtube videos including a zero clearance insert and replacing the metal dust shield with one of wood held in place by magnets. Overall, a great saw.

Great dovetail guide!

Great dovetail guide!

03-15-2015 08:29 PM by AESamuel | 3 comments »

I bought one of these magnetic dovetail guides from David Barron after unsuccessfully trying freehand myself and am astounded by the results on my first try using the guide with my budget zona gent’s saw. I ordered the guide by e-mail in the evening, David posted the guide the next day and the day after the guide arrived on my doorstep. It was very well packaged and is solidly built. It even came with spare replacement covers for the magnets and a packet of haribo sweets too! The ...
