Feed roller replacement for outdated Makita planer

Feed roller replacement for outdated Makita planer

02-20-2019 10:50 PM by KirkA | 2 comments »

My Makita 2030N 10 inch planer/jointer is over 20 years old. Recently the feed rollers had their plastic coatings dry and crack off, rendering my planer unusable. New rollers were very expensive but after extensive internet searching I found Wood Tech Enterprises. They were able to take my 2030N feed rollers and replace the coating on the rollers to a like-new condition. After placing the re-covered rollers on my Makita planer I have been able to plane to my heart’s content. The r...

Cheap laser engraving machine

Cheap laser engraving machine

02-20-2019 03:24 PM by Woodbie | 2 comments »

Laser engraving services are now provided by many companies. However, paying them money is only worthwhile if you are going to engrave on harder surfaces such as glass or metal. Laser engraving on paper, plastic, leather or wood can also be done at home with a laser engraving machine NEJE DK – BL1500mw. For soft materials, full power, very simple operation. These engraving machines have a power of 1500 mW, an integrated 6000 mAh battery and a Bluetooth 4.0 communication module. Also, th...

Robust router lift for Bench Dog only cast iron tables

Robust router lift for Bench Dog only cast iron tables

02-18-2019 03:58 AM by Holbs | 8 comments »

It came time to up my game. This is my first ever router lift after painfully manually adjustments for years. Because I have a Bench Dog table saw cast iron extension, I was limited (I believe) to either the Bench Dog router lift or Incra Mast-R-Lift-II-R . I went with the Incra because…well… what an awesome track record :)What’s to be said about this lift? It’s awesome 5 stars. Installation was a snap. Installed a Milwaukee 3HP 5625 to ensure all routing needs...

Afordable floating tenon with the Rockler Beadlock system.

Afordable floating tenon with the Rockler Beadlock system.

02-15-2019 09:25 AM by Armoredduck | 4 comments »

Been using Dowels for a while and wanted to try another system. Was debating on getting the Pro system but wanted to test out the smaller one 1st. Tested it out on a small project 1st(Picture Frame) and I have to say I really like it so far. Having the Kreg clamp is really helpful for speeding things up. One suggestion I would tell anyone if they want to get one it to use a red pencil. Its so much easier to see the lines when you are marking your pieces. I also think on some projects it may b...

Mostly good

Mostly good

02-06-2019 04:05 PM by Manitario | 3 comments »

I primarily use waterstones for sharpening, except when I need to be aggressive, then the 220 grit diamond plate comes out. I don’t like the mess of conventional waterstones; what I like about these stones is that they only need a spritz of water just before use. Generally, they work well; they sharpen quickly and wear slowly. I mostly have O1 and the PM-V11 steel; the small amount of A2 that I have is slow to sharpen, but I find it slow on everything! Strangely, the 3000g stone is b...

Onieda V3000 One year review

Onieda V3000 One year review

02-06-2019 03:05 PM by edapp | 6 comments »

A little over a year ago I moved into a new house with a dedicated, not my garage too, not tripping over lawn mowers, wood shop. I was, and still am, extremely excited about it. I celebrated a bit and spent some money on a few new and really nice tools to get everything setup right, because a lot of the remodeling of our house was coming out of my shop. This is my first real dust collector. For years I had been using a shop vac or just letting the dust fly/build up in the cabinet of my saw...

Lagun 18BX - 1" Resaw King Blade - one year review

Lagun 18BX - 1" Resaw King Blade - one year review

02-06-2019 02:26 PM by edapp | 10 comments »

I have owned and used my 18BX for a little over a year now, and since this is a relatively new saw I think it deserves a review. I purchased it and a 1” Resaw King blade from Rockler during one of the 10% off deals. Delivered, the saw was a little less than $2,000. The blade is very expensive at almost $200 (I think my previously “most expensive” blade before this was a $35 woodslicer from highland). I swap between this and a 1/4” general purpose blade regularly. I ...

My new favorite glue

My new favorite glue

02-06-2019 05:43 AM by JCD | 14 comments »

Ok. Maybe a review on glue isn’t the most thrilling, but after doing a couple rooms of custom window trim, building a kitchen peninsula with cabinets, and making some custom cabinet molding with corbels and cove molding, I’ve found a new best friend to companion my kreg jig and pin nailer. Found it at Menards (not carried at my Lowe’s) and have found what I believe is that perfect, thick (not runny), glue that dries fast (but not so fast I couldn’t get my clamps in place and adjusted). I h...

One Year Later  WEN 3410 Air Filtration System

One Year Later WEN 3410 Air Filtration System

02-02-2019 07:40 PM by fivecodys | 9 comments »

I wanted to wait a year before giving my review of the WEN Air Filtration System. I added this unit to my shop at the same time as I installed my dust collection system. (Jan 2018) I have it mounted in the are of my shop that generated the most dust. It hangs over that area from the rafters.It is to the right of my table saw and over the bandsaw, planner, jointer, & router table. .It was difficult to tell how much this unit was helping to reduce the fine dust in the air...

Why didn't I do this sooner

Why didn't I do this sooner

02-02-2019 04:32 PM by jamsomito | 12 comments »

I’ve been using my tablesaw with a naked blade since I got it 3 years ago (relatively new to the hobby). I suppose there’s no better way to learn than being exposed to ALL the risks at once! It’s been bothering me the more I read about tablesaw safety, especially given the fact that I’m in one of the statistically highest risk groups of woodworkers (occasional user / weekend warrior) for incidents. I was hit by a kickback about 20 years ago as I was learning, and yo...
