RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

11-26-2016 04:30 AM by WistysWoodWorkingWonders | 6 comments »

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

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owned this for about a year now, so I feel I have plenty of time with it to offer up a fair review…Maybe i’m a little out-of-date, but I have never used a jigsaw with variable speed that wasn’t just “pull the trigger less” and I’ve never used an orbital jigsaw, let alone one where the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.

About 10 years ago I bought a Ryobi combo kit from home depot which included a drill, skill saw, sawzall and flashlight. It was promptly returned and I spend the extra money on a 18V Ridgid combo kit which I have added a few batteries and extra cordless tools to over the years. About three weeks ago I was noticing the batteries were getting tired, the drill was wearing out and the other tools were showing their age. I have been looking at the Roybi one stuff at home depot for a while think...

Handplane Shootout No. 4 in D flat Minor

Handplane Shootout No. 4 in D flat Minor

11-16-2016 06:14 AM by WoodWorkLIFE | 9 comments »

I am a hybrid woodworker I suppose, I guess I am really a “get stuff done” woodworker. The electric planer is a thing of beauty for milling up gnarly grain and rough sawn stock. For fine tuning fits, getting smooth finish ready surfaces, and just general enjoyment you are bringing a hammer to brain surgery. There is nothing more rewarding in the shop than taking a good shaving with a hand plane, it is one of those man meets fire moments the first time you do it. I have quite a stable of...

Norton Ceramic Sandpaper disks

Norton Ceramic Sandpaper disks

11-14-2016 08:47 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I’ve (unfortunately) used a lot of sanding disks in my history of wood working. One thing that makes sanding a little more pleasurable is having good abrasives. I’ve found that the best abrasive is the Norton Ceramic disks. Coming in Second, right behind these would be the 3M-brand purple disks. I believe these purple ones are either ceramic or a ceramic blend abrasive. At any rate, the ceramic disks do cut more aggressively, so you often have to choose a grit step of two up fr...

D.H.S. Heavy Duty Leveler Legs w/ Lock Nuts - 600 Lb each

D.H.S. Heavy Duty Leveler Legs w/ Lock Nuts - 600 Lb each

11-13-2016 04:37 AM by Holbs | 3 comments »

These leveler legs are great if you have un-even flooring or if you have to adjust height here and there. I have two cabinet saws that I’m trying to make co-planer facing each other that have to move every so often so re-adjustment will be necessary. I considered cheaper versions but thought since these are attached to 500+lb cabinet saws, I went with playing it safe.D.H.S. Heavy Duty Leveler Legs w/ Lock Nuts - 600 Lb each

Not nearly as good as it could be

Not nearly as good as it could be

I recently purchased a SawStop 3hp PCS with the overarm dust collection. I replaced a Jet hybrid saw where I had upgraded the stock blade guard to a Shark guard and had been very happy with the results. I was hopeful the SawStop overarm dust collection would be as well designed, and operate as well as the rest of the saw. Unfortunately, it doesn’t. The SawStop overarm dust collection has a small hose that connects to it, and that narrows to nearly nothing as it goes into the blade...
