My new branding iron

My new branding iron

12-01-2016 01:40 AM by BurlyBob | 11 comments »

I’d kicked this around for a while and after the wife gave me the green light I ordered a branding iron from Terry Desilets, Custom Branding irons. I’ve played with it a little and tonight gave it a work out. I really like the looks of my brand. After reading his instructions about the branding surface I’ll be doing a better job in the future. First off, flat smooth and clean, that means no varnish. One of the issues I ran into tonight. I branded a bunch of projects th...

Way better than my Dewalt!

Way better than my Dewalt!

11-29-2016 07:03 PM by stevet47 | 18 comments »

I picked this up online re-manufactured. They were having a sale and I had a discount code, so I managed to get it for $235 shipped. I figured at that price, it was worth the risk. I sold my Dewalt 12” non-slider on craigslist for $200, so I am all-in to this saw for $35. And that is actually true, since the Dewalt was a gift! Using this thing sure is a treat. I had been using my 12” Dewalt non-slider for several years, and we have a 12” Dewalt slider at work. The Dewalts...

Decisions, decisions...

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. The JET 10” hybrid saw I bought new about 17 years ago has served me well, but I wanted to take advantage of some of the advancements in table saw design that have occurred since then. There were two major developments in table saws that I was adamant about having on my new saw. The first was a riving knife. Not merely a splitter, but a true riving knife that raises, lowers, and tilts with the blade. Back when I bought my JET, riving knives wer...

Jointer	Grizzly G0490XW

Jointer Grizzly G0490XW

11-27-2016 02:06 PM by dannmarks | 7 comments »

I purchased the G0490XW. I ordered the one that I wanted and waited for to come in: it was on back order. Came in about mid November 2016. Yes it has the spiral head and mine worked first time just fine. Still tuning in some stuff. I probably still have a little to learn about it yet. However, my boards come out very flat and the edges are very square. Took a while to get it square. I mean really square. So gluing up produces nice flat work. It does exactly what a jointer is suppose...

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

The LOW-DOWN of the RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw by WISTY: NOTE: This is a saw that I have had for a while now, I am just getting time to finalize a review for it, enjoy the read! The RIDGID RS1000 is an EXCELLENT saw at an AFFORDABLE price! Excellent for those who are lacking floor space. Highly accurate and extremely powerful saw that is built to last. My personal recommendations are simple: GET ONE AND KEEP IT! Good Luck trying to find one though as anyone who already has one will pr...

Fuji Mini Mite 4 Platinum.

Fuji Mini Mite 4 Platinum.

11-25-2016 04:33 PM by Carloz | 0 comments »

I needed to clear coat some pretty large plywood items and used it is as an excuse to buy a spray gun. Initially I bought 2 stage unit but after thinking about it more I though that I might run into situation where it will not be enough. Fortunately retailer had no problem upgrading the unit ( I even did not unpack it). When I opened Mini Mite 4 I found a pleasant surprise . Even though I purchased the regular Mini Mite 4 the one in the box was a newer Platinum series. The difference is that ...

Fantastic, except for 1 (potentially fatal) flaw

Fantastic, except for 1 (potentially fatal) flaw

11-23-2016 05:22 PM by stevet47 | 7 comments »

I am generally not a fan of Ryobi tools, although I think my option may be tainted based on their older tools, the newer green ones are slowly winning me over. I have owned this for about a year now, so I feel I have plenty of time with it to offer up a fair review…Maybe i’m a little out-of-date, but I have never used a jigsaw with variable speed that wasn’t just “pull the trigger less” and I’ve never used an orbital jigsaw, let alone one where the orbit wa...

Solid Tail Vise

Solid Tail Vise

11-22-2016 11:04 AM by MC | 2 comments »

After using this vise for a couple of months, I wanted to post a review of it. First off this is the best vise I have ever used. The operation is smooth and the holding power is excellent. There are two versions available, one with a machined hand wheel the other cast. All other parts are the same. As much as I would have liked to have the shiny one I could not justify the added cost. Installation takes care. The measurements need to be precise for the vise to work properly. The installa...

Always wanted a top quality router table and now I have one with all the bells and whistles. The table and all machined parts are all expertly made. I installed a Porter Cable 3.25 Hp. Router in the lift and when everything is hooked up to the two dust collection ports ( 4” under table and 2.5” on the fence ) there is virtually no dust at all. An excellent addition to my shop.
