Mortise and Tenon Joinery

19 days ago by Roger | 14 comments »

First I want to say thank you to Hendrik Varju for giving this very fine, 5, yes, I said 5, DVD’s as a gift to the fine pages of Lumberjocks. Also, thank you Cricket for setting up things for all and any of us to be the proud owner of this type of prize. I want to say, almost 11 hours, yes, 11 hours of the many different, and intricately detailed how-to’s, and explanations of how and why’s of the fine art of Mortise and Tenon Joinery. WHEW, that was a mouthful. I hope I sa...

review Oliver 4230 jointer

review Oliver 4230 jointer

20 days ago by bons | 9 comments »

I posted a couple of pics of my new Oliver 4230 jointer and have started to tune the machine up and learn all its little secrets for best performance. The jointer has a Shelix spiral cutter head. I looked at a lot of 8” jointers and liked the look and weight of the Oliver at the price point listed. I have not run a lot of stock through it but, so far, the machine is extremely quiet, powerful and cuts like a dream. The bed is 75” long and provides ample space for running long board...

General Int. 50-050 Tenoning Jig

General Int. 50-050 Tenoning Jig

22 days ago by Crickett | 10 comments »

I keep harping on efficiency being a major consideration in any tool I consider buying, and with the handful of tenoning jigs out there, I didn’t know where to turn. What I found blatantly obvious were the various brands (Delta, WoodTek, Shop Fox, Grizzly, Rockler, etc.) are all the same tool with different paint/logos. So that left the General and Jet as the top two contenders. I’m talking about “new” tenoning jigs here, but I suspect a few comments on older jigs. I c...

A great clamp for what it is meant for - One-handed clamping

A great clamp for what it is meant for - One-handed clamping

22 days ago by paxorion | 3 comments »

Way back when (after home ownership but before my woodworking hobby), I thought that these beefy Irwin Quick-Grip XP600 were the most awesome clamps. After all, why would I want a heavy clamp (i.e. the parallel clamps a few inches away at the big box store) where I’d have to use 2 hands? Fast forward a few years, and I now have a more realistic perspective of these clamps. Recently, I splurged and picked up 8 of the 12” model from my local Home Depot. My decision was prompte...

Great product at a great price

Great product at a great price

24 days ago by TheFridge | 23 comments »

Hello there, I found this guy on ebay for 150$ with free shipping so I decided to get me one. I’ve heard a lot about the quality of incra products and this one is every thing I wanted and more. It took about 30 min to assemble and set up for use. I had a smidgeon of doubt about the extruded aluminum rail, but this miter gauge has so me heft to it. I don’t know you could possibly improve the positive indexing stops with vernier scale. Especially at this price. The glide lock mit...

First impressions

First impressions

25 days ago by Nates02gt | 7 comments »

I just picked the drill press up from Lowes today. They honored a 25% Harbor Freight coupon which brought the price down to about $260 out the door. My daughter and I got it set up in about 30 minutes and so far am very impressed. I haven’t measured the runout yet. I do wish that they would make it easier to tilt the table. This is not an issue with this drill press specifically, it was the same on the bench top Ryobi that I just sold. I will update this review as I get more time ...

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

26 days ago by Ajs73 | 7 comments »

Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,brand new in box for $40. I don’t haveanything to compare it with but I’m amazedat how much dust accumulates on the outerfilter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. innerfilters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anythingthat keeps dust out of my lungs is worthbuying. It’s a perfect size for my smallbasement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160& I believ...

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

27 days ago by BoardSMITH | 7 comments »

After two months of hard use I feel somewhat qualified to write a decent review. So here goes. Crating and packing – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Delivery – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Instruction manual – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Fit and finish, Blah, blah, blah, etc… Now that all the fluff is out of the way. I purchased a Grizzly wide belt sander because I was unable to find another on the market of that size. My budget would handle a 24̶...

New tool!!!!!

New tool!!!!!

30 days ago by chadgr | 14 comments »

So yesterday my very own centipede saw horse pro was delivered personally by the UK Distributer. He asked me to share my thoughts on the product. First things first the communication.From the very beginning I was new exactly what was going on with production and delivery. Every time I contacted the company there was a reply within the hour. They provided awesome customer service including a personal delivery. Moving on to the tool itself, when the box arrived it looked in good shape, th...

Great, and inexpensive

Great, and inexpensive

32 days ago by Goodsh | 10 comments »

Bought this saw for $30 about 6 months ago. It is great. Cuts super fast in all types of wood often without tear out and is very easy to use. I use it for both crosscuts and rip cuts and it produces fine results in both. The blade is solid and tight in the handle. The handle is a little cheap – it’s basically just a dowel but for $30 bucks I wouldn’t expect much more. This saw is great. To be honest I much prefer this over the Veritas rip carcass saw I got for more than doub...
