Cross Cut Sled review from 2012

05-06-2021 10:48 PM by Seabeece2 | 0 comments »

Sounds like a good purchase from Rockler’s. Unfortunately in the last 9 years the price has gone from $99 to $199 so I’ll not be purchasing from Rockler’s.

Harvey Tablesaw #1: Ordering and shipping

04-17-2021 01:56 PM by TJones | 1 comment »

I have been looking to upgrade my Craftsman 113 contractor saw for some time with a cabinet saw. I looked seriously at the Grizzly product line but could not talk myself into purchasing. I came across a forum post talking about the new Harvey entry into the market. I was intrigued by what I found during my research. On February 9th during one of their “sales” I pulled the trigger on the 36 inch Alpha. I purchased the right side cast iron wing as well. Total cost $1800.00 plu...

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I am excited to join this forum. Besides my “about me” section of my profile I would like to see how of help to anyone who may be interested in the exotic woods that I have. As well as any questions that may arise about wood preparation. I own a top of the line vacuum wood kiln that was developed by Den Socling from PCS Vacuum Kilns. This has given much information about what it takes to dry wood in a heavily controlled environment and so forth. Don’t h...

Shop stuff #204: Fighting bad installation manuals

02-27-2021 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I’m on a new project in our new home. This time I am installing a bathroom. It’s below grade and below the waste plumbing so I had to buy a very expensive macerating toilet with a pump on it to handle the waste water. With all the money these things cost you would think that they would have had someone with some technical writing skills to do the manual. But no, not these guys. A short gloss over of things is all they give you and even that is incomplete and vague. Join me a...

A few Table Saw sleds to look at #1: Double Dubby, Rockler, and Incra sleds

02-11-2021 10:39 PM by therealSteveN | 6 comments »

So many different things a “sled” can do. I’d be amazed to see the one that could do it all. I just scored big at an auction, sic estate sale I went to. Nobody there, and they had made it all outdoor, Covid proofed it, provided you wore a mask, and did the 6’ thing. I ended up walking away with a Double Dubby, one of the Incra sleds that works with a miter gauge. And one of the Rockler sleds. All brand new, in the box. I was thinking about doing a comparo blog on these...

Shop stuff #200: Part 10 of the potato bin series...finally

12-05-2020 12:28 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, I actually took the time to get back at editing and putting together a video. It is not my best performing series, but this episode uses some pretty special wood that really makes the unit pop! Thanks for tuning in and commenting. Oh, and I’ve given up on how to figure out how to embed video. Lumberjocks just seems to want to make it impossible.
