Not Perfect, but pretty close for me + Great Customer Service

07-19-2021 11:19 PM by whope | 26 comments »

I’d give it a 4.5. I rounded up for the excellent customer service. This is my third dust collector. The machine I replaced was a Jet DC-1100VX that I’d had for just a few years. My first was a Delta that Lowes was selling for cheap. I’ll mention up front that when I upgraded to the Harvey, I also added 6” metal ducting which I’m sure had a big impact on performance. But it should, I spent about the same in ducting as I did for the G700 (about $2,500, includin...

Solid Bandsaw

Let’s try this again – I did something wrong this morning and it didn’t load: A couple months ago, I finally jumped in with both feet and ordered a Harvey 14” bandsaw, a huge step up from the little WEN and Delta bandsaws I owned previously. I wanted a bandsaw with sufficient power to resaw and cut rough lumber while being capable of doing more detailed work as well. I waited for a few weeks while the priced bounced around. They seem to change the discount near...

First Impressions of Harvey Alpha HW110S-52P

First Impressions of Harvey Alpha HW110S-52P

01-19-2021 01:59 PM by LowShoe | 24 comments »

Well the new Alpha HW110S-52P arrived on Friday and as usual “some assembly required.” I started the assembly on Saturday and completed it today (1/18). It didn’t that whole time as I had other commitments in between. First impressions are good. This thing is a beast. Shipping weight was 720 pounds and was delivered on a lift truck vehicle. The actual weight of the saw is over 500 pounds. After getting it assembled I ran through the set ups. Fit between main table...

Harvey vs Incra Miter Gauge

Harvey vs Incra Miter Gauge

11-10-2020 02:36 AM by Pixxture | 10 comments »

I am slowly replacing some of my cheaper tools and also adding new tools. One day When my wife was out of town and i had a beer in hand (well OK, might have been 2nd or 3rd) I somehow got the idea to spend a small fortune to purchase a HARVEY “COMPASS MG-36 Miter gauge” After returning the HARVEY gauge i purchased an INCRA 1000 SE miter gauge, approximately $200 cheaper. HARVEYThe fit and finish is superb. It has positive stops at +/- 0, 22.5, 45 and 60 degrees. Out of the box i ...

First installment. I will update as things progress. Ordered it about two weeks ago. Talked to the folks on the phone a couple of times. Very nice. Answered all my questions and were welcoming to some overall feedback on their WEB presence. ( or lack there of) and features as a woodworker I woudl like. Due to the coronavirus, a little delays in getting back sure can’t put that on them! Arrived when scheduled. Very good service. A couple holes in the box but did not touch anything...

Harvey Alpha Series Bandsaw Review

Harvey Alpha Series Bandsaw Review

03-11-2020 07:15 PM by mckenziedrums | 25 comments »

With a big cutting project on the books to start 2020, we were in need of an upgrade to our trusty old 14” Grizzly. It’s not that I particularly had any dislike of the saw, but it wasn’t a production machine and certainly wasn’t going to run the 1” carbide blades we wanted to run for this project. I shopped everything from Laguna to Grizzly and PowerMatic without really a price range in mind other than maybe $3k or less. Most of what I do is 2” or less thic...
