Bought this stand the other day. Get it home take it out of the box, simple to setup. Can’t get the thing to be level when tightening the screws. The pipe shifts because it’s to small for the casting, the top base sits all wonky only has one screw to mount . Taking back, bought a Sears stand for less and works fine.

WoodRiver Retracting Caster Review

WoodRiver Retracting Caster Review

02-28-2016 10:18 AM by OakHill | 2 comments »

I purchased these casters for the Bosch GTS 1031Table Saw mounted on top of the Bosch GTA 500 Stand. The casters swivel smoothly and I never had a problem with them getting stuck or not rotating as some reviewers had experienced. Some preliminary testing had to be done. (See Base Description below) The mechanism works great and is easily operated. The foot action for raising and lowering the casters works exceptionally well. A very well designed product from WoodRiver. As a retired Man...

Expensive but Useful

Expensive but Useful

02-28-2016 01:32 AM by edwood1975 | 10 comments »

So I purchased this because of a couple of reasons: I am tired of spending a lot of money on trim and molding at the the big box stores and I have started to make my own on the router table easy!!!!!! BUT when it came to cutting 1/4” -1/2” strips of a larger piece I felt very uncomfortable and unsafe ripping these dimensions on my TS.. On top of this need I have been bombarded with magazine articles and TV commercial promoting this product and I decided that I would see what...

Quality saw right out of the box

Quality saw right out of the box

02-28-2016 01:10 AM by edwood1975 | 4 comments »

I was replacing a Craftsman Miter saw for a better sliding version amd I stuck with Craftsman becaise the other saw was perfect until I stsrted working with wider boards and was tires off setting up the crosscut slet on my TS. Anyway I like this model for the following reasons..1. It was on sale and got this $300 saw for $207.2. Its a quick learning curve from owning a non sliding miter saw to a sliding model.3. The saw came with a 60 tooth blade that is great for hitting the ground runnin...

A Great New Addition To My Shop

A Great New Addition To My Shop

02-27-2016 05:24 PM by SirFatty | 10 comments »

Manufacturer: Grizzly Industrial, Inc.Model: Grizzly G0513P – 17” 2 HP Bandsaw, Polar Bear SeriesModel: Shop Fox G7314Z – Heavy-Duty Mobile BaseCost: $895 and $74.95 Overview First a note about this “review”. This is more of an informational post, not so much of a review as I have not owned a bandsaw before, and therefore have nothing to compare it to. Having a bandsaw in the shop opens a completely new avenue of possibilities in the way wood is cut: ev...

Great value cast bronze router kit from ebay.

Great value cast bronze router kit from ebay.

02-27-2016 02:05 AM by Babieca | 2 comments »

I decided to build a router plane and went on ebay looking for a blade and instead came across this cast bronze kit from St. James Bay Tool Co. This model normally comes as part of a 2 router set for $85, but this single without handles was $25. I assume these were on ebay because the castings aren’t perfect. As you can see on the photos above, one of the mounting holes for the wood handles was a little out of round. The set screw was also not finished. However, the bottom is flat an...

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

02-24-2016 11:18 AM by OakHill | 1 comment »

Great attachment. If you need to cut small or thin pieces of wood or plastic you really need this Dremel accessory in your tool inventory. I have only tried it on about 6-7 cuts thus far. I found the best results when the work piece is clamped and in using two hands, one to hold the tool and the other hand to guide the Mini Saw works the best. Perhaps with practice this method will change. Just as with any other power saw, let the tool do the cutting, not the muscles in your arm. Well ...

Exactly What I Needed

Exactly What I Needed

02-24-2016 01:47 AM by smitty22 | 7 comments »

This set of silicone chisel tips/guards is exactly what I’ve been looking for since I started using chisels for serious woodworking. They are rugged and feel like they will survive quite a bit of use, fit standard flat chisels nicely, and are bright red so they don’t disappear in a pile of shavings. There are 10 of these in the set, about $10 or so. Shown here installed on a few of my chisels, at $10.00 for the set, not cheap, but sure helps keep the cutting edges from bangi...

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

02-23-2016 04:23 AM by Dark_Lightning | 26 comments »

I bought it today, after I found out that the Bosch REAXX GTS1041A isn’t going to be available for awhile yet, and I wanted to get a safer saw now, not whenever. The point of this post is to look at positive solutions you have come up with for MY alleged problems with the saw I just bought. That said- #1. The miter gauge is loose in the slots. (.010” “slop”). Yes, I know it is a contractor’s saw (edit to add- yes that is a Job Site Saw). I had expected better,...

Hard to imagine a better formula for learning woodworking

Hard to imagine a better formula for learning woodworking

02-22-2016 01:32 PM by cutndried | 8 comments »

I have been puttering away at woodworking for several years on my own, but wanted to get a better grounding in the craft and accelerate the curve of my learning. My preferred method of learning is intensive immersion in the subject, so the 12 week intensive furniture-making course at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine was appealing. All my hopes were met by the course. It was expensive, at $7450, but that is on a par with similar duration training at other top loca...
