Karcher WD5-P Vacuum

Karcher WD5-P Vacuum

I thought I would go ahead and post a review since I asked in the forum if anyone had experience with this vacuum and I didn’t get any response. For the cost it wasn’t going to end up being a huge mistake so I went ahead and took the plunge and ordered one from Amazon. I would have purchased from the local Woodcraft but when I called them nobody could tell me anything more about it than what I saw in the documentation and didn’t seem interested in checking for me even thou...

Laguna fusion table saw

Laguna fusion table saw

01-28-2017 01:34 AM by Hermit | 9 comments »

I’ve had this saw about a month now. It’s a major step up for me being out of woodworking for 20 plus years. Having just built my shop, this is my first major tool purchase second to a dust collector. I’m basically starting all over again.I did a lot of research, read a lot of reviews etc as others have done. I chose this saw for several reasons. 1. Great reviews on multiple websites.2. Appears to be good enough for an almost retired hobbiest. 3. Dust collection port on the ...

Establish or Determine Angles [for Turning Knives & Such]

Establish or Determine Angles [for Turning Knives & Such]

01-27-2017 08:28 PM by Kelly | 3 comments »

It’s a good thing I like toys. The reason I say that is, I have a significant layout tool collection grown out of both that I find myself laying out everything from straight lines or circles and arcs, curves to letters and numbers, so I find need for verifying a variety of setups and layouts. For the foregoing reasons, I have all manner of triangles, rulers, straight edges, tapes, compasses, curves, gauges lettering templates and so on. Some are more useful for a given project than ...

Impressive for a small shop

Impressive for a small shop

01-24-2017 12:50 AM by ColonelTravis | 24 comments »

I work out of a 2-car garage that can barely hold one car because it’s filled with woodworking crap, and it’s a brand new car so I don’t want it constantly covered in sawdust, nor do I want the rest of the garage covered in sawdust, which is how it’s been for a while. I use mostly hand tools but I have a bandsaw, miter saw, sanders, etc. and my dust collection system is just me with a leaf blower out an open garage door. So I bought this thing off amazon for about $...

Looks Square to Me ...

Looks Square to Me ...

01-23-2017 05:34 PM by Ron Aylor | 22 comments »

For years I have used but four squares; a 2 inch steel engineer’s square, a 12 inch Empire combination square, an antique 9 inch rosewood square, and a 24 inch framing square. All of these instruments have been tweaked and tuned, and match each other perfectly. Or, as perfect as perfect can get! Recently, I found my myself in need of a square somewhere between my 9 inch and 2 inch squares. It is possible to bend the ruler if too much of the length is hanging off the work piece. I dec...

This Saw is GREAT !!

Got this saw last year. I was worried about the delivery and got the lift gate service from Grizzly. The saw came on UPS Freight. They called and made an appointment for delivery. They came with a lift gate trailer, they driver dropped the pallet at the curb, eazy peazy. I broke the pallet down and carried everything inside a piece at a time. Then put the body of the saw on my hand truck and into my shop everything went. I assembled the saw by myself. Had to shim the cast iron wings ...

Took delivery of my first cabinet saw on monday. Picked up at yrc terminal they loaded it in my truck and off I went. The saw was packed incredibly weLL double cardboard box around the saw and the fence and extension table were shrink wrapped in top. Think the only way they could damage this was to drop it off the dock. I have been a FedEx driver for 20yrs and have seen some ruff looking boxes but this was in fantastic shape. Set up was straight forward wipe the top and extension...

I love this Grizzly Jointer. I have a small shop and the size of this machine is perfect. The spiral cutter – head is worth every penny. I gave 4 stars because, I requested the lift gate service. UPS Freight called me and scheduled an appointment at their convenience for delivery. I scheduled time off work to make the appointment time UPS Freight requested and then UPS Freight blew me off. No call, no notification, no call to reschedule, nothing. UPS freight never showed up. ...

GRS-16 Guide Rail Square - AWESOME!

GRS-16 Guide Rail Square - AWESOME!

I love my track saw. But lets face it, if you own a track saw then you are probably obsessed with accuracy when making cuts. Track Saw owners tend to be very picky with wanting to cut something square to an edge. I am no different. Now I have found the ultimate track saw square that actually works flawlessly. Received this tool/square and within a few minutes I was making perfect SQUARE cuts that were dead on accurate. Workmanship is first rate, this thing will last for years. If you ...

I don’t like that the...
