The tool I could not do without

The tool I could not do without

81 days ago by b2rtch | 28 comments »

My wife bought me this tool for my birthday probably six years ago. I have used it for demolition and construction to cut copper pipes and wood, to sand where no other sander whould have done the job and for many other things. This tool took me out of a bind countless time. This is a wonderful little detail sander. This morning I used it again to trim pieces of wood where not other tool could have done it. If you do not already have one of this, go buy one. Sometimes they are on sale ...

Amazing improvement on my table saw

Amazing improvement on my table saw

82 days ago by jakep_82 | 19 comments »

I’ve already replaced the belts on most of my machines with link belts, but I never really felt like it was a huge improvement. After swapping the belts on my table saw I realize just how much difference they can make. I have a 15 year old Grizzly G1023 which has a triple 3L belt pulley. I bought the saw for a song on Craigslist because it had a blown motor, but I had no idea how it ran. After I got the motor fixed I found out it had a significant thump at startup, as well as some...

GO513X2F just arrived

83 days ago by bowedcurly | 20 comments »

Im currently in the process of assembling my 513 I had a Rikon 10-345 but sold it. From my observations so far the Grizzly has bigger bearings say by 2x better welds more even beads where as the Rikon has runny balled up welds smoother height adjustment blade disengage much smoother Rikon was kinda hard to engage bigger better looking motor better lookin cast iron top also has a magnetic switch, Rikon does not have this I learned that the hard way after plugging in the sa...

Not for use with new K-body clamps, but sturdy and well built

Not for use with new K-body clamps, but sturdy and well built

92 days ago by GoBlu | 28 comments »

Note: Based on the quality of the build of this product and comments from another user, John Ormsby, who does use them, I’m giving this product four stars, up from the original two. (John would give them five). But I wanted to warn anyone who might buy them unknowingly that they do not work with the new Kbody clamps. (Kbody Revo). Even if you have the new Kbody Revo Vario parallel clamps, this has nothing to do with the VarioPivot clamps. I’m deleting the original post for...

Dust Deputy / Oneida Air Systems Inc.

Dust Deputy / Oneida Air Systems Inc.

93 days ago by OakHill | 6 comments »

The kit comes with the plastic cyclone, two buckets, lid, hardware and hoses. The cone is made of thick polypropylene plastic with the hose connections tapered so that hoses easily fit. The dust deputy has far exceeded my expectations from when I first read about it. The $99.00 investment was well worth it. I have a central vacuum system hooked up to most of my stationary tools and this system on its roll around cart is very versatile, hooking it up to other tools and for general shop cl...

Straight, True, Inexpensive

Straight, True, Inexpensive

94 days ago by KelvinGrove | 25 comments »

One day, when I win the lottery, I will have everything I want in a shop including one of the really nice panel saws like they use in the Big Orange Box. In the mean time, I need a way to cut sheet goods. I have a couple of requirements on that. First, I don’t want to be wrestling 4X8 sheet through a circular saw. Second, I don’t want to “break things down to a rough size” and finish them on the table saw. Way too much waste in that. So along comes the TrueTr...

Delta 36-725 Contractor Tablesaw: Follow-Up Review

Delta 36-725 Contractor Tablesaw: Follow-Up Review

94 days ago by thetinman | 62 comments »

EDIT: THIS REVIEW WAS EDITED ONLY TO ADD A LINK TO ADDITIONS THAT WERE ADDED TO THE SAW. TABLESAW ADDITIONS: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/101376 I bought this saw over a month ago and wrote an initial review then. The review included many assembly tips as the owner’s manual had not been updated since the saw was first released to the market. While the review is for the Delta saw, it includes many assembly tips that may be of value to any owner of a new saw. Likewise, this review foll...

Brand new Bosch semi auto vacuum VAC090s

Brand new Bosch semi auto vacuum VAC090s

96 days ago by Jonwilliam | 2 comments »

I had some discretionary money to “invest” in a new tool and I settled on a vacuum. It was between the Festool ct 26-36 or the new Bosch line of vacuums. Vac140a/s, Vac140a/s. The “a” is for auto, the “s” is for semi-auto filter cleaning. I had to make a decision quick due to festool’s price increases the first of this month. So since I am also in construction (excavating) I went with the Bosch and so far am very pleased. I already have a grea...

Quality tool

I had contacted rhett after seeing a post about evaluating hand planes. Rhett sent me a care package to share with my students. I run a woodworking club for my 7th and 8th grade students. I recieved a completed plane with test shavings, a plane glued up, a kit ready to be glued and some blades and plane body blanks. I want to publically thank Rhett for his generosity and support of my students wodworking journey. The assembled plane worked perfectly after i adjusted the plane after is journey...
