Pretty Satisfied with Replacement for my Bosch Sander

Pretty Satisfied with Replacement for my Bosch Sander

02-12-2015 03:27 AM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

I’ve had my Bosch 1295DVSK ROS for several years and have been mostly happy with it, but two things have been a disappointment: 1) it chatters more than it seems reasonable; and, 2) the vacuum attachment doesn’t hold well anymore, partially due to the rubber ring on the sander itself getting brittle. I’ve read several reviews of the DeWalt, so I decided to see if it was the answer. This reconditioned model is only $59 at CPO Three observations: 1) I did not do a direc...

Separator for shop vac

Separator for shop vac

02-10-2015 05:07 PM by philba | 4 comments »

This is distributed by Woodcraft. The first picture shows the contents of the box. I bought it to build a sanding vac cart – separator and a small shop vac with a HEPA filter plus an auto switch for the vac. It was on sale for (iirc) $49.95, regular price $79.95. I went to check the price on the Woodcraft web site but it didn’t come up in the search. I know my local store had them as recently as mid January. A label on the side of the box even says “woodcraft”. Not ...

Laguna 2HP review

Laguna 2HP review

02-09-2015 04:20 PM by MrSammy | 29 comments »

My wife purchased the 2 HP Laguna Dust Collector for me. I was always hesitant on buying Laguna because of their horrible customer service reviews. I currently have a 14/12 band saw and have had zero problems. I will explain the problems I experienced and explain why I will never purchase a Laguna product ever again. My wife bought me the 2 HP Dust Collector because I do woodworking to cope with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She copes with my drinking from doing and experiencing e...

Works great but with some vibrations

Works great but with some vibrations

02-08-2015 07:19 PM by jshroyer | 8 comments »

I got this angle grinder because i have only used 1 of these a single previous time. I normally used air tools only. so i decided to start out cheap and get one of these. I didnt want the regular one but got the heavy duty instead. I was planning on using this for grinding on metal and cutting metal. Mostly cutting threaded rod for jig building and also for anything else like that. i dont leave a tool in my dremel and so thats the reason why i didnt do that. I ended up getting a crazy g...

Solid fence at a good price

Solid fence at a good price

02-07-2015 06:09 PM by sgmdwk | 26 comments »

It has been a few years since this fence was reviewed on Lumberjocks, so I decided to throw in my two cents worth. I own a Craftsman 113 series contractor table saw I purchased new in 1989. It has been a reliable tool, for me, but has always left a bit to be desired. The single greatest issue has been the fence. Every rip cut has required multiple measurements from both the front and back of the blade to ensure parallel alignment. While a minute or two might not be a great sacrifice, over the...

Can't get better for the price

Can't get better for the price

02-06-2015 09:50 PM by sgreen | 6 comments »

After watching Rob Cosman’s videos on the new V3 planes and his videos on sharpening blades I decided to go get a Wood River #5 Jack Plane. As Rob says, the plane comes covered in thick oil to prevent rust but you can just take it off with some mineral spirits. All the adjustments were easy to make and everything moved smoothly. The sole was dead flat against my straight edge and you can’t beat the tolerances in the chip breaker and blade. All it takes is 10-20 minutes of setup an...

(Not So) Straight Edge

(Not So) Straight Edge

02-06-2015 02:20 AM by Hawk_Guy | 19 comments »

I recently purchased an 8” Jointer and cabinet table saw and needed a precision straight edge to properly tune and align my new toys. I have some Woodpeckers products already and am pleased with them (router plates and such)so I had absolutely no reservations about purchasing their product. I received my precision straight edge in a really nice particle board case that had a recess in which laid the straight edge, protected from harm. I took it out and was very pleased with the fit...

Stanley still has problems milling the bed correctly

Stanley still has problems milling the bed correctly

02-04-2015 11:36 PM by jakep_82 | 16 comments »

I should have listened to the people on Amazon complaining about machining problems. I posted largely the same review on Amazon. The sole on mine was cupped slightly front to back and side to side. The lowest point is right at the mouth. The adjustable toe is also machined so that it’s about .002” below the rest of the sole. They also left several burrs on the bed that prevented the blade from sitting perfectly flat. And on the topic of the bed, I found the same problem as man...

T5HO Lighting Fixture - cheap, lots of light, easy install

T5HO Lighting Fixture - cheap, lots of light, easy install

02-04-2015 03:59 PM by brtech | 11 comments »

I’ve hesitated to post a review for this, mostly because I wasn’t sure how long the offer on them that I used would last. It’s been nearly a year, so I’m going for it. This is an 8’ fixture (actually 92”), that holds two lamps. So they are end to end, not side by side. The lamps are not included. Buy the fixtures here:http://www.ebay.com/itm/LITHONIA-LIGHT-FIXTURE-2-BULB-120-277-VOLTS-MS5-1-54T5HO-277-OSPS-GMF-/121246665458?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_...

Fallkniven Dc521 Diamond Bench Sharpening Stone

Fallkniven Dc521 Diamond Bench Sharpening Stone

02-03-2015 05:48 PM by L-H Johnsen | 4 comments »

I have used water-stones when sharpening chisels and plane-irons for a while. They work but I donĀ“t enjoy the sharpening-process, which leads to less sharpening=bad results.So I looked at different diamond-stones and choose Fallkniven Dc521. I’ve had the smaller version (DC4) in my pocket for several years and it has been great, the final finish of the ceramic-side pops hairs without a trouble.I also tried the Dc521 when visiting a professional woodworking shop, and besides a Tormek-sys...
