Got a new table saw. This is very nice and a great new addition to the shop. It has a good weight to it so it won’t move, but light enough to move if needed, also the folding up and rolling aspect. Check out the video and hit that subscribe button. New things coming up! View on YouTube

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #64: Workshop Update: Knocking the C10FL down a notch

04-06-2016 02:13 PM by retired_guru | 1 comment »

The Hitachi C10FL I bought off a widow last year has to be one of the best shop investments I have made. It needed a little work, mostly tuning up. Replacing the worn out v-belt with a HF link belt made this smooth running and relatively quiet. I’ve had it long enough to develop a short list of undesirables for this model. Some of the items on my complaint list are well known design shortcomings. Some are just what bothers me for their respective reasons, like the width of the aluminum ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #57: HF Accu-Link V-Belt on Hitachi C10FL -- Wow!!

08-30-2015 03:50 PM by retired_guru | 6 comments »

Previously I blogged about the very noticeable vibration and wobbling noise when the recently acquired 2009 Hitachi C10FL table saw was operated. Fellow LJ COGoose recommended buy the Harbor Freight Accu-Link V-Belt to solve the problem. The wife and I were going to be in the Triple-Cities area where a Harbor Freight is located, so a stop was made to pick one up. The Accu-Link A-Link-5 belt comes in a 24” length. I needed about 9”, this left lots for future replacements. Here i...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #53: Hitachi C10FL Acquisition - Part 2

08-20-2015 11:30 AM by retired_guru | 2 comments »

A week has gone by since my previous post. In that time I have made some progress. Several days ago I figured out a way to get it into the dungeon. A couple of days ago I added back the steel base stand, moved the retractable casters to their correct location on the legs—the previous owner really didn’t know what he was doing in assembling and running this saw—and managed to gently tip it off the hydraulic table and onto its side, then lift it onto its legs…all by myse...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #52: And then the table saw automagically appeared!

08-14-2015 05:59 PM by retired_guru | 2 comments »

When I last left you in the previous episode, Nelly couldn’t pay the rent and… Sorry, wrong blog. With the South dungeon space freed up some, and the parts to the table saw having come in, it was time to get the Hitachi C11FL out of the truck and into workshop. The same day I bought the saw I went to a Harbor Freight store and bought a hydraulic lift table. It was a pricey investment that I knew would be used again and again with the thickness planer later on. The ordered...

Workshop #2: Building out some equipment and creating space

10-28-2014 07:05 PM by JHAstrello | 0 comments »

Well, since my first posting, I have remained fairly busy with both the shop – and other activities. On the shop front, I have reworked my layout plan (design), and have basically figured out where most of the goodies will go, at least initially. Having said that, I know have to do the thing that is tough for me, and many of us. I have to get rid of some things. Here we go. As you can see from my earlier post, there is a massive workbench (previous owners wife used it to make stained...

Mobile Table Saw Stand

02-20-2014 06:07 PM by MadWT | 3 comments »

OK, So i am new here to LJ and i am excited to post new and exciting things this to get all sorts of feedback. I recently upgraded my hitachi table saw by installing the Vega Pro 50 Fence system! Its huge! The 40 would have been plenty, but for what i paid ($275) it was much cheaper than the 40 that i could find and i have the room for it so i figured what the heck! :). I took the wings off the saw becasue they were pretty much worthless and the stamped steel legs make for a pretty flim...

Router Review - Hitachi M12VC

01-02-2012 04:06 AM by Sailor | 2 comments »

I decided to do a quick review on my wonderful Hitachi router. If you are in the market for a all around router that packs alot of router into a great price then seriously consider this Hitachi. I know this is a “review”, but it’s a video too so I figured I would do it as a blog post to.
