Experiences With VeneerSupplies.com

10-12-2021 01:43 PM by jayseedub | 3 comments »

I’m pretty stingy with my praise—but I’ve ordered twice from VeneerSupplies.com and have come away both times with a great experience. They deserve your business. I’ve gotten Marbled Walnut, Figured Spanish Cedar and Birdseye Maple from them—and they’ve been super fast to fill the order, super fast to get it out into the mail, and in a couple of days I’ve had it in my Illinois shop. They pack the veneers well and their customer-communication is p...

Great Innovations, But Not Perfect

Great Innovations, But Not Perfect

08-14-2021 07:36 PM by jayseedub | 15 comments »

I caught a bit of the Red-Thing bug when I got some of Woodpeckers’ tools at a garage sale—for half retail price since they were used. I was inspired to consider other Woodpeckers tools, and the In-Dexable combination square seemed to offer enough innovation in it that I plunked down the $170 (gulp) and bought the regular (non-XL) 12” version. (I also bought a spare 6” blade—but I wish I hadn’t. The head of the combination square is just too big (it...

Functional, But Not Amazing Zero Clearance Insert (ZCI) for SawStop

Functional, But Not Amazing Zero Clearance Insert (ZCI) for SawStop

12-26-2020 08:44 PM by jayseedub | 6 comments »

*Update: I happened to stumble across the instructions for the ZCI on Infinity’s website—would have been nice if they’d included them in the box (yes, I double-triple checked the box, and they weren’t in there). It seems that my intuition largely aligned with the instructions—but I wish I hadn’t had to guess so much about how to install this correctly. I also was alerted to the presence of the two side set-screws which snug up the ZCI laterally (right to ...

Post Assembly Impressions--Even Before My First Cut!

Post Assembly Impressions--Even Before My First Cut!

12-24-2020 09:49 PM by jayseedub | 10 comments »

Just some initial reactions about this saw, now that it’s assembled and fresh in my mind: 1) It’s HEAVY. I don’t even have the cast iron wings—and it’s heavy in the box, heavy to carry in, heavy to install. Get it? It’s heavy. 2) The stamped steel extension wings are thin. Thinner than my old Ridgid 2412 from 20 years ago. Thin. But it doesn’t matter. Once they’re bolted to the fence system and the side extension table they feel thi...

Taytools Brass Wheel Marking Gauge w/ Microadjust

Taytools Brass Wheel Marking Gauge w/ Microadjust

08-05-2020 11:08 PM by jayseedub | 9 comments »

I have a non-micro-adjusting Veritas wheel marking gauge, and I wanted a micro-adjusting feature, so I bought the Taytools one for just a little more than the price as it would have been to upgrade my current Veritas gauge with their micro-adjust rod retro-fit option (https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop/tools/hand-tools/marking-and-measuring/marking-accessories/103120-micro-adjust-rod-for-veritas-wheel-marking-gauge?item=05N3631). _ I bought this wheel marking gauge at the same time th...

iGaging 4" and 6" Squares From Taylor Tools--Buy Something Else

iGaging 4" and 6" Squares From Taylor Tools--Buy Something Else

07-27-2020 12:13 AM by jayseedub | 23 comments »

$35 for two squares probably should have told me something, but Taylor Tools gets great respect online, so I thought the deal would be worth it—but it’s not. Yes, the squares are indeed accurate. They come in individual plastic cases. The markings are good. They work, and to the degree that they do what they are supposed to do, $35 probably is a good deal. But the locking mechanism—the knurled nut—is terrible. Terrible. It actually feels sharp in my fingers ...
