Bargain box of Sand paper rolls

Bargain box of Sand paper rolls

08-20-2015 04:47 AM by bigJohninvegas | 4 comments »

I found this box of sand paper rolls on Klingspor’s web site, advertising a 20# box of end rolls for wood turners. I like there sand paper rolls for turning and normally would buy 1.5”X10 yard rolls from them. 7 grits at about $8/ roll. so $56 when you need all of themThis deal was about $30 for a 20# box assortment at 100 Grit or finer. This box has a couple of 80 and 100 grit rolls, 5 or so each 120, 150, 180, and 220, a couple 280, and 320, and 1 of each 400, 600, and 800. ...

Grizzly G0555LX - 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Love it

Grizzly G0555LX - 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Love it

08-14-2015 12:54 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 7 comments »

I bought this bandsaw this past spring. I also bought the riser block to obtain a 12” cutting capacity.I really like this saw, it has plenty of power, runs smooth with no vibration. Fit an finish was on the mark and assembly was straight forward. I did have to add shims to the riser block, other than that is has been performing well for me. It has cut everything I have asked it to (and some I didn’t ….. 9 stiches right index finger) from mdf to plywood to oak and I am su...

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

08-14-2015 12:45 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 3 comments »

I purchased this jointer this spring. In a nutshell, I am more than pleased. I do wish that I could have got the 8” jointer but budgets are what they are and when putting together a shop money has to be spread around.I think the fit and finish is spot on. The tables and fence are flat and move smoothly and have a nice finish.The damn thing runs really smooth with no vibration and can fill my chip bin faster than #####. It has handled everything I have fed it. I did hit a knot tha...

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

08-14-2015 12:30 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 5 comments »

I needed to increase the cutting capacity of my table saw and last fall I bought a Vega Pro 50 fence system. I originally wanted to get a Biesemeyer, but I really need both my legs and both my arms. My table saw is a Rigid 2424. I wanted to use the fence for a while before writing a review. I have put it through the paces and the following is my take on the fence. Aftermarket fences can be really expensive and may require a good amount of modifications to your table saw. That was not ...

FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

08-13-2015 12:17 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

08-12-2015 07:27 PM by Nicky | 3 comments »

Just to put this review into perspective I’d like to say that I’ve used it to break down 5 sheets of plywood and trim two door. This is not a comprehensive review just some thoughts to share. My 32 year old skillsaw has finally given up. It spent many years cutting through 2x lumber and plywood/osb. For the past 5 years I was just using to break down plywood to more manageable pieces. I’ve really looked hard at the Festool but I have a difficult time justifying the cost. I’m a hobbyist. ...

20V MAX* Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit

20V MAX* Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit

08-10-2015 12:11 PM by dbray45 | 11 comments »

This was one of my wife’s impulse buys. I have stayed clear of battery powered drills, not because I haven’t had them, I have. I have one at work and I use it as much as I use a power drill at home (not drill press) – very little. Since I use it so rarely, I have to charge it before I can use it. I have 2 Milwaukee corded drills at home which I like a lot – One impact and the other is not. I was putting in a wall up on Saturday (covering an exposed cinder block ...

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

08-07-2015 08:39 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 0 comments »

I am a fan of Laguna tools. I called my salesman and it was delivered 7days later. Everything was clean, well painted, and it assembled OK. I was going to convert a HF 2hp, add a Dust Deputy and have to rig a system. Cost of Laguna shipped without the filter $825 vs. build your own $500 plus my time. This has been a good decision for me and I highly recommend this unit for a shop that doesn’t have an extra 220 service. This unit runs on a 20 amp 110service. The motor is made in Taiwan ...

RIDGID GEN5X Combo Kit, Up For Review + A Giveaway!

08-06-2015 01:50 PM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

Alright y’all, I’ve recently reviewed the GEN5X line of tools and I gotta say I’m nothing short of impressed with the features, quality, and power. So, like normal the GEN5X review is on my blog, but what’s awesome (and what everyone is probably more interested in) is that RIDGID is sponsoring a giveaway for the GEN5X Combo Kit. So if free tools sound good to you then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the review. If free tools don’t sound good then, well...
