Bought it less then a year ago. It had to sit in the box for a while while I transferred to a new base. Finally got to set it up which was easy till the test. The blade was off. The side closer to the fence was cutting high. By looking at the instructions I figured it would be easy to adjust. Wrong! The cap screws were frozen. Three of them turned no problem but I couldn’t get the rest to budge. Since it is still under warranty (at the time of writing this) I contacted Grizzly for help....

Oneway drill wizard

I looked at this for a long time. I got it about a year ago and have used it on 2 projects. It does what it does very well. All I’ve done with it could have been done without it, but not as easy or accurate. Right out of the box I put a bit in a drill and mounted it to the lathe. I had to cut down the post to get the bit on center. That’s with the post bottomed out in the banjo. It’s made for chair makers. I’m not there yet, but it will do what I need. ...

I love this stuff!

I love this stuff!

I’m sure I have sprayed 20+ different waterborne topcoats the last 6-7 years. Several of which I’ve sprayed well over 50 gallons of! Most of which was on corporate or commercial projects. As with most things, there are things I like and dislike about all of them. About a year ago I decided to try emtech. Jeff (owner, target coatings) suggested I use 8000cv. I had yet to shoot a waterborne conversion varnish that I liked so I went with 9300 instead. After a short learning curve ...

Nothing wrong here

Nothing wrong here

11-14-2015 01:39 AM by Tedstor | 8 comments »

I realize biscuit joiners aren’t as popular as they once were. In fact, I don’t even use mine very often. I bought this Craftsman joiner a few years ago (2012?), and only just now feel as if I’ve used it enough to write a competent review. I originally bought it to help align a glue-up for a coffee table. I was pretty close to buying a Porter Cable joiner from a local pawn shop. Its was a solid looking tool, and seemed to be very well built. However, they wanted $175 for it....

A highly economical yet industrial strength mobile base

A highly economical yet industrial strength mobile base

11-09-2015 03:05 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

After refurbishing my 8” GeeTech jointer, I needed a small footprint mobile base in my 2 car garage setting. While Oliver Machinery and their sister company Loma Tools (old Sunhill company) helped me with the GeeTech jointer parts, I saw some nice mobile bases on their webpage. I ordered one, it arrived this weekend, a 5 year old can put it together without instructions and now my jointer has a nice new home from the makeshift temporary base it was sitting on. This is made is Taiwan....

IBC Chisels reviewed by David Charlesworth

IBC Chisels reviewed by David Charlesworth

11-06-2015 08:11 PM by david charlesworth | 5 comments »

These long awaited chisels are now available. When faced with innovative design, it is difficult to come up with a definitive opinion. Time will tell.The connection between handle and blade is unusual. The top of the blade passes through a hardened ferrule and then threads into a hardened steel core. This extends to the top, where a solid, polished aluminium cap secures the maple handle. (American walnut is also available as an option). In the short term I found this arrangement works pe...

Hand Stitched Wood Rasps

Hand Stitched Wood Rasps

11-04-2015 07:43 PM by RogerBean | 15 comments »

For anyone doing much carving, gunstock work, period furniture, or the like will find numerous uses for wood rasps. For quickly shaping irregular shaped items like cabriole legs, ogee feet, Kentucky rifle stocks, or ball and claw feet, a good rasp can remove a lot of wood in a hurry. I have accumulated a number of them over the years, beginning with an old Nicholson rasp my father bought back in the early 1950’s for gunstock work. My only objection to the ones I have is that all ar...

Bosch Colt router has collet problems.

Bosch Colt router has collet problems.

11-02-2015 10:53 PM by PatrickB | 28 comments »

I thought I would add to this review due to some of the replies I have received. Every time I operated the tool I experienced an issue with either the fence vibrating loose or the bit vibrating loose. Every time I operated the tool means maybe 7 or 8 times total. It appears to me some people think “every time” to mean 150 or 500 times or whatever they want it to mean. When purchased this tool was meant to go on a cnc router build I was going to do so other than looking it over ...

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

11-01-2015 02:16 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

This is an initial (unboxing & assembly) review … I’ll update after the machine has been in service for a few months. The machine arrived at the local Woodcraft store on a pallet, and weighed in at 106 KG (a little over 233 pounds). We got the shipping container ( 45” x 26” x 38”) to fit into the cargo bay of my Jeep Liberty with a little finagling (and a few well-chosen words). I have a pneumatic table and a very patient wife that were invaluable in unloading it in my g...

Not what you expect

Not what you expect

10-29-2015 12:50 PM by fuigb | 16 comments »

These googles are presented by Lee Valley as combing function and form: comprehensive eye protection (though “not certified for industrial use”) and a “cool retro look.” The look IS cool, if that is at all important, and the youngsters in your life are sure to point out that you resemble a Minion from the kids’ movie Despicable Me. Giving the children a laugh is about as much satisfaction as you can expect from these googles. I’m a hobbyist, an evening...
