Install of iGaging DRO for 20" Grizzly planer

Install of iGaging DRO for 20" Grizzly planer

01-25-2016 01:31 PM by zatoechi | 3 comments »

I just wanted to briefly share a different approach to mounting a DRO on a planer that does not require complicated fabrication. This is not meant to be a comprehensive product review but instead piggyback on a previous (and very good) review – http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/2573 There are two main differences in this approach. The first is using an aluminum extrusion as the main means of mounting the DRO to the planer. The extrusion used is 1” x 1.5” cross-section with...

Critter Spray Gun that works for a small shop

Critter Spray Gun that works for a small shop

01-25-2016 01:25 AM by Desert_Woodworker | 9 comments »

Spray guns and the choices are many. This is one product that could be of use to a woodworker. Great spray gun for some of my applications. It is inexpensive around $35 and you can use most shop air compressors (Mine is a $100 HD) your spray container is a Mason jar, which can be purchased at the grocery store. http://www.amazon.com/Critter-Spray-Products-22032-Siphon/dp/B00006FRPJ which has all the specs and customer reviews. My uses for this particular model is for latex, shellac and bo...

Craftsman Drill guide

Craftsman Drill guide

01-22-2016 07:18 PM by hairy | 8 comments »

I used to buy a lot of Craftsman, then for a while I wouldn’t buy anything Craftsman. I probably would not have bought this, except that they were the only local retailer that had 1 in stock. I saw several online, but due to my poor planning I didn’t have time to wait for shipping. I needed it to drill holes into wall studs for floating shelves. I used 3/8” x 8” lag bolts to support the shelves. Once before I tried that without a drill guide. It did not end well. ...

PM 719T Hollow Chisel Mortiser Review

PM 719T Hollow Chisel Mortiser Review

01-21-2016 02:18 AM by JBrow | 6 comments »

Problem. I prefer the mortise and tenon joint. Most of my projects join ¾” thick stock. I am not one to create a mortise by chopping with a chisel, drilling a series of holes that are then squared up, or setting up the router – I am just not patient enough. For years, I used a mortise attachment on my Craftsman floor model drill press. It was a constant struggle to use the attachment and get centered mortises plus cutting mortises took the drill press out of commission until they were ...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

01-20-2016 05:54 AM by athomas5009 | 7 comments »

For Christmas I received the Veritas Cabinet Scraper w/EX blade. I really wanted a cab scraber because I hear they were amazing tools and I heard it was hard to beat the price of the Veritas Not to mentioned it was slightly bigger than the No 80 and had a thicker blade. Well let me tell you Veritas didn’t disappoint. out of the box the fit and finish was excellent, the sole was flat and the blade was ready to take a decent shaving. I used the stock blade for a cpl of hrs with no prob...

Dynaglo 50K-200K LP/Propane Heater

Dynaglo 50K-200K LP/Propane Heater

01-20-2016 05:31 AM by athomas5009 | 2 comments »

This is only an initial review because I’ve only had this heater for a week now and have used it 2x’s. I got it for $60 new in box off CL but reg price is 130$ at BORG. I used to have a 15K tank top LP Radiant heater which was nice when close by and a 50K-80K kerosene salamander that worked well but smelled and was LOUD!!! First off let me tell you for the same price as a decent NEW kero salamander you can get this bad lad that is at least 2-4x stronger and quite a bit quieter....

Electric Radiant Heat in the Workshop Review

Electric Radiant Heat in the Workshop Review

01-19-2016 02:44 AM by JBrow | 12 comments »

Problem. Prior to 2013, I heated the attached 2 car garage 450 square foot workshop with open flame heat. I started out with propane, but it was loud and consumed a lot fuel. I switched to tall style kerosene heater and stuck with it for about 5 years. The kerosene heater did a great job keeping the shop warm, but the fumes would enter the house even with weather stripping on the tight closing door. And then there was purchasing fuel; it seemed that every two to three weeks I had to ma...

Powermatic PM1000 one year in

01-17-2016 06:08 AM by rizzo | 14 comments »

I’m writing this on the one year anniversary, to the day actually, of my tablesaw…. This was not intended, but as I am currently sitting at the Atlanta airport waiting for my flight home, I thought it a good opportunity to write my follow-up review. One year ago today, I wrote an initial review of my saw, the review I wrote was solely about the purchase choice, delivery and setup. Here is the link to that review Initial Review The setup went great, with a very, very minor hiccup dea...

I finally made a decision on a saw.

I finally made a decision on a saw.

01-16-2016 05:00 PM by Ken90712 | 20 comments »

As a few of you know I have been on the fence so to speak on getting a new saw for some time now. I read and read and read on which one to get. I had it narrowed down to this and a Sawstop. We all know about the great safety features on the SS. They also build a great saw. However I finally made a decision on the Grizzly G0690 3hp 220 volt with the cast iron router table extension. I have a small shop so the router table is a no brainer for me. Money was somewhat a consideration although ...

Since I purchased my rigid tablesaw I have been really trying to advance my knowledge of exactly what a TS can do and I figured joinery techniques was a good a place as any.. In in the middle of the design phase of creating mitre saw station and I think the doors will be mortise and tennon joinery anyway I have been practicing with this set.. The Pros:Really like the quality of the blades,chippers and spacers.. I like how easy it is for a beginner like me to align everything in the s...
