Whiteside Router Bits and Woodworkersworld.net

06-11-2010 01:56 AM by harrywho | 19 comments »

I expect good customer service when I am trying to buy something from a company but this week I dealt with two companies that went above and beyond anything I could ask for.I was looking for a particular router bit and couldn’t find it locally and if they ordered it they told me to expect up to a two week wait. I found the bit I was looking for on Whiteside’s website but a notation in their catalog said it was not for the use I intended. I called Whiteside to find out why and was ...

An Aftermarket Retrofit Riving Knife Does Exist...

An Aftermarket Retrofit Riving Knife Does Exist...

06-09-2010 10:01 PM by knotscott | 27 comments »

The Bolt On Ripping Knife (BORK) from Bob Ross of Walnutacre Woodworking is a retrofit riving knife that fits several traditional saws that were not originally designed for a riving knife. The BORK attaches to the arbor swing arm, and rises, lowers, and tilts in unison with the blade much like a true stock riving knife does. I’ve had a BORK on my Shop Fox W1677 since August of 2008, and have been very happy with it. It’s available in full kerf or thin kerf thicknesses, and will ...

A picture is worth two hudred fifty words

A picture is worth two hudred fifty words

I almost ordered some of these today, but didn’t when I saw they wanted to charge thirteen bucks for shipping two of them. Later, going through my jig supplies, there they were. These things are small. Very small. So small, they wouldn’t break the one ounce mailing barrier. Still, it would have cost thirteen dollars to ship them. Did I mention that yet? To be fair, they are very handy critters to have around, since they do their assigned task well, which is to fit in T tracks...

Wonderful Plane

Wonderful Plane

06-08-2010 05:25 AM by Bud | 12 comments »

A tear came to my eye when I unpackaged this plane. I love everything about it. It’s heavy and all machined surfaces are smooth and flat. Other than honing the iron and waxing the sole no tuning is required. This is a very versatile plane. The three bevel-up planes from Veritas all accept the same size iron making them interchangeable. This is especially relevant with bevel up planes because the effective cutting angle can be changed by altering the the bevel angle of the iron, ...

Good qaulity cutter

Good qaulity cutter

06-08-2010 02:27 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 5 comments »

I purchased this bit to speed up and simplify my box making. To install the lid and base it calls for a 1/4 inch groove around the top and bottom of all sides. Instead of fiddling with the table saw and instead of taking the time to install a dado head I figured it seemed reasonable to have a router with this bit dedicated.This is my first experience with Eagle America and it wont be my last. The shipping was incredible. I only got the standard shipping and I ordered it on Wednesday of last w...

Overall a Good Dust Collector

Overall a Good Dust Collector

06-07-2010 06:28 AM by ABrown | 8 comments »

Overall this is a fairly good dust collector. Much to my suprise this little dust collector came on a tractor trailer strapped down to a pallet I don’t know why UPS couldn’t deliver it, It’s not that heavy. Once I got it off the truck and in my shop,the assembley was stright foward, I had it put together in about 30 minutes. I attached it up to my table saw, it does a pretty good job, don’t get me wrong It dose not get everything but it is a great improvement over my ...

warning just got this today, this is a first look review The Woodsmith Store had this General mobile base on sale for $60, the staff also recommended it. It took me about 15-20 mins to put together, all I needed was a couple wrenches. It’s my first mobile base and I can’t believe I lived without one. Much better than dragging around my Delta contractor table saw. I would have preferred one lever to engage the wheels and move it but stepping on 2 each time isn’t too to...

Craftsman Bandsaw Fence - good bang for the buck

Craftsman Bandsaw Fence - good bang for the buck

06-07-2010 12:09 AM by Jeison | 16 comments »

I spotted this while wandering through Sears the other day, and since my little 10” benchtop bandsaw doesn’t have a fence, and I plan picking up the Porter Cable 14” that Lowes has (which I know does not come with a fence) I figured for $40, this universal fence (which boldly claims to fit all models of bandsaws) would be a good investment (Being a hobbyist and “weekend woodworker” I don’t need the hyper-accuracy and features of one of the $150+ models̷...

So far so good

So far so good

Finally, the dust collector turned up in my shop. I was missing this guy for quite some time. no shopvac would put up with my Powermatic joiner and planer waste and having acquired a 5hp shaper, made me go for it. it seems to do its job so far. the self filter cleaning system and the remote control are as good as a cold beer in summer time!. the ability to roll the drum out and to the garbage room is very good. it is a bit noisier than most of my machines but not a problem. I will continue re...

The Great One

The Great One

06-06-2010 07:25 PM by Severiano | 5 comments »

It came already assambled and ready to go. There was only one minor problem with the mobile system of it. There is a pin that holds the spinning system to lower and raise the shaper, and it broke when trying lowering the mobile system. After hammering the pin out of the hole and inserting a nail for concrete instead, the Great One was ready to start chewing on wood. I thought it was going to make a hell of a noise, but… Surprise!!!, the Great One is at least 60% less noisy than my 1.5 h...
