Aux Table for the WorkSharp 3000

Aux Table for the WorkSharp 3000

01-30-2018 12:24 PM by Dan Katz | 4 comments »

I couldn’t upload my pictures in the comment section so I’m trying here to post them.Here are a few photos of my set up for carving ad turning tools. I don’t use the turning set up often but for carving this is easy and will produce a very sharp edge starting at 240 if necessary all the way up to 1500.I have 3 wheels with 240-400-600-800-1000-1500

Revo set-up

Revo set-up

01-27-2018 02:54 PM by Dan Katz | 2 comments »

My shop was designed to house a heavy lathe and has a 6’ x 6’ x 20” slab which has the main beam for the crane sunk down 18” into the slab. The lathe is set directly under the path of the crane to help load heavy objects onto the spindle. This has proved over the years to be invaluable.I decided not to use the leveling feet but used shims to level the machine and then bolted the head stock end to the main beam of the shop and also bolted the tail-stock end to the floor...

Unpacking -Revo 1836

I ordered my new Lathe from Packard and had it delivered to a friends cabinet shop where they loaded it on to a pickup and brought it to my shop. I have an overhead crane system which moves out to the middle of my drive and enables me to lift objects out of a truck bed or trailer.My first objective was to remove the lathe from the box without destroying the box in case I wanted to return it or move it in the future.Before removing the lathe I found the plug and tested to see if it would fit m...

Laguna 14|12 - Great Saw with fantastic customer service to back it up

Laguna 14|12 - Great Saw with fantastic customer service to back it up

01-20-2018 06:35 AM by BoardsByBullard | 16 comments »

Late in December I started to look into a few options for improving the shop, I was tossing ideas around getting a few more Festool toys and I realized I was quickly outgrowing my Craftsman 1hp 14” band saw. I was looking for a reasonably priced saw with more power and I saw that my local Rockler was not only running a special for 10% off Laguna products but that they also had the 14|12 in stock. I was strongly considering the 220v 14bx as a solid option but realized that the break was ...

Great lighting for shop at amazing price

Great lighting for shop at amazing price

01-19-2018 01:39 PM by pauljuilleret | 11 comments »

A short time ago I purchased a four pack of these bulbs ($30.99) for my shop I was replacing 150 watt equivalent CFL lamps After screwing in the first bulb it was amazing in the difference it made so much so that I went in and ordered another four pack to complete my lighting up grade. after the up grade was complete the shop is like I moved it out to the back yard on a bright sunny day. They come on as soon as you throw the switch with no warm up needed. I even replaced the little screw...

Delta Q3 40-650

Delta Q3 40-650

01-16-2018 01:42 PM by tomvette | 2 comments »

For comparison, I own the Delta Q3 40-650 and an RBI Hawk 220-3, both great saws. The Hawk is a 3 speed saw (via belt pulley change) featuring parallel arms, and aluminum construction. The Delta Q3/40-650 is a variable speed saw leveraging a graphite C arm on a 90 pound chassis. The Delta has minimal vibration, likely the result of the low moving mass of the C arm coupled with the heavy chassis. The cutting speed is fast and “buttery” due to the non parallel C arm design....

Festool MFT3 has essentially replaced my table saw sled for crosscuts.

Festool MFT3 has essentially replaced my table saw sled for crosscuts.

01-16-2018 05:24 AM by Mike_D_S | 17 comments »

So first off, I’m not a Festool guy. While I can see the value of having a “system” I think their pricing is not always aligned with the actual value delivered. For me, the MFT3 multifunction table is one of those love hate things. I have a friend who has one and all he does is tell me how great it is, how easy it is to use, how it helped him grow new hair for his bald spot, yada yada yada. So I had picked up a Makita track saw to break down sheet goods when I’...

Easy beginner spray gun, but holy ear protection batman.......

01-16-2018 04:41 AM by Mike_D_S | 9 comments »

So, my partner and I have a big cabinet job which has quite a bit of priming and painting to do. In order for us to both be able to work, I picked up the Earlex spray station HV5500 last week from Rockler on sale ($299 with the extra 1.5mm tip and a $50 gift card). I finally broke it out today and put 4-5 hours of fairly continuous work in spraying Zinsser BIN primer. I’m no expert, but I’ve been spraying lacquer, poly, etc top coats from a HF gun for a couple of years with p...

A great folding bucksaw for hiking and/or tree trimming

A great folding bucksaw for hiking and/or tree trimming

01-14-2018 01:58 AM by MalcolmLaurel | 1 comment »

I don’t remember where I saw the Fast Bucksaw some years ago, but I added it to the running “I want this” list my family uses for birthday and Christmas presents. Anyway, my wife bought it for me for this past Christmas. Since then, I’ve taken it out on a couple of hikes. Previously, I used a small folding camp saw to collect the mountain laurel branches I used for my lamps and other work. It’s nice and compact works great for small stuff, but once you get...

Digital Shop clock you can see any angle

Digital Shop clock you can see any angle

01-13-2018 03:37 AM by Rayne | 3 comments »

Anyone been looking for a robust, digital weather station that you can hang in your shop, see the temperature AND relative Humidity outside, inside, shop, AND can actually read it from any angle and most distances? If this is you, Marathon has the answer for you! I have been hunting down for a good weather station for my shop for a long time. I’ve tried several where it was just impossible to read at most angles if you’re not directly facing it. I looked at the details on this...
