Capri angle gauge. Pleasant surprise not bad at all.

So, After major disappointment with Accumaster dud and before I purchase a Wixey gen2, I decided to give the Capri a shot. it’s about 5 dollars less than Wixey2 but it has the back-lit LCD and uses one AAA battery.so as you can see from the pics it is extremely accurate. on the 90 degree tests using calibrated square it is always 100%. on the 45 degree tests using two woodpecker precision triangles, it registers 0.1 off sometimes. for most part it reads accurate 45 degree. it is however...

Byrnes Model Machines

Byrnes Model Machines

10-18-2016 06:24 AM by Bobthewoodbutcher | 4 comments »

About a year ago I bought (in fairly rapid succession) three of Jim Byrnes machine products. I had been looking for a miniature saw, and read glowing reviews of the “Jim Saw”. Well, I can attest to the super quality of all three of these machines in my shop. These were intended primarily for dollhouse furniture, but have been very useful for all sorts of projects. One of my current projects is a jewelry box that required many 1/4 and 3/8 panels. No sweat; just resaw (bandsaw) ...

Alternative to mobile bases

Alternative to mobile bases

This goes hand in hand with my previous posted project about pallet bases: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/268018I had a decision to make regarding how to move around my wood working machinery in my 2 car garage workshop which includes: 15” Jet planer, 8” jointer, Powermatic 66, Delta Unisaw, and any other machinery or cabinetry that needs to be move around. I could of went for the cabinet saw mobile bases with a price tag of $500+ (which have their own drawbacks) and 2 more Lom...

What a disappointment.

What a disappointment.

Too bad. I was so eager to get this after all these years of owning a wixey and I really wanted this thing to be accurate. it was almost a dream come true. no pancake watch batteries. and bright LCD display but it is so off it’s not even usable as a door stop.I hope the one that i got was defective because even my 8 year old wixey is still right on.I never been crazy about wixey batteries and hard to read LCD and if you live in humid place like houston you have to keep zeroing it severa...

This review is of a product I am selling (can I review my own product?) I need to get this information out there and so far my relatively small business doesn’t have the budget that allows mass marketing and advertising. This router lift is completely unique in that it mounts in the cabinet below the the table rather than to the bottom of the table top (or inset). The biggest advantage to this design is that it can be used in a lift top router table! Yep… no more bending ov...

Entertaining, occasional rambling,  sometimes Jay is hard to hear

Entertaining, occasional rambling, sometimes Jay is hard to hear

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. This is my 3rd woodworking related podcast. [A note about the rating … There is no reason this isn’t a 4 or 5 star podcast depending on the criteria. Since the name is, The Woodworking Podcast, I feel obligated to review it as such and relative to the 360 or Shop Talk podcasts which have stronger woodworking content and standalone. Some of you wi...

Ok, so maybe I didn’t buy the same saw. I was the previous owner of a 1.75hp 14/12. It was an awesome saw, but one day I went to rewire it to 220 and discovered that I had to rewire the whole saw (outlet and all) to 220. I was kinda eyeballing the new 14bx and that was it. I posted my saw on Craigslist and said, if it sells I upgrade, if not, I keep the 14/12. Well, it sold in about a week. So here I am today, unloading the new 2.5hp bx. I feel the same way about this saw as I did my...

Bosch REAXX Jobsite Saw

Bosch REAXX Jobsite Saw

10-01-2016 02:03 PM by Woodbridge | 17 comments »

I bought the new Bosch REAXX jobsite saw in July 2016. This is a great table saw for a woodworker who wants a high quality, powerful and accurate table saw but does not have the need or room for a larger cabinet , hybrid or contractor type table saw. If you work in a small basement shop or in your garage you will appreciate the small footprint and mobility of the saw. The REAXX table saw includes flesh sensing technology (Bosch calls it Active Response Technology). When the saw dete...
