Pretty happy with the Kit

Pretty happy with the Kit

I was the Washington Woodworkers Guild booth at a woodworking show in Northern Virginia the last weekend before Covid shut everything down in 2020. I had decided to build an assembly table for the inside part of my shop. We had a couple of Noden Adjust-a-Benches in our booth and decided that I would use the kit as a starting point for my assembly table. There was a Noden booth at the show, so I stopped by and ordered the kit. At the time, I decided not to get the mobility kit. The kit a...

Bora Roller Stand: Dissapointing

Bora Roller Stand: Dissapointing

03-16-2021 05:26 PM by Kelly | 6 comments »

Well, now I know. Buy another different stand. I bought the stand because I must have forgotten the other one of two on a job site. It’s been AWOL for several years and I wanted an adjustable stand for each end of my bandsaw log sled. It went together easy enough. The adjustable top is a roller and mount held to a wedged shaped shaft by two screws. The adjustable shaft is composed of a piece of U shaped metal with a piece of flat stock welded in the U-channel (about 1/8...

Kreg KRS1035 - Multi-Purpose Shop Stand (20in x 28in)

Kreg KRS1035 - Multi-Purpose Shop Stand (20in x 28in)

03-12-2021 07:50 AM by Beuford | 4 comments »

Really nice quality. Heavy-gauge steel, well designed, precise manufacturing, sturdy, excellent powder coat. Went together exactly as the instructions stated, without any “goofy” issues or the use of a hammer (unlike may cheaper brands). Expensive, but worth it. No comparison to the cheaper competitor products. One note: This comes with serrated flange nuts for the carriage bolts, but I dislike them. I replaced them all with washers, lock washers and normal nuts. I was leery...

Works as intended, but buyer beware!

Works as intended, but buyer beware!

03-10-2021 09:44 AM by Beuford | 2 comments »

This is a review for the D2260A as pictured above. Note the box carefully; this one claims a 1000 lb weight limit and clearly shows polyurethane-covered cast iron wheels (which it DID include). Note too that this unit has a recent manufacturing date, marked as late last year (2020). However, this model is also sold – using the same part number D2260A – as having a 600 lb weight limit and sporting plastic/rubber wheels. This review is ONLY for the 1000 lb rated version with the cas...

Shop Fox D4666 - Heavy Duty Mobile Base review

Shop Fox D4666 - Heavy Duty Mobile Base review

03-05-2021 11:04 AM by Beuford | 6 comments »

I went looking for a mobile base for my recently-acquired Delta 36-649 table saw with T2 30” fence. I found the Shop Fox D2057A ($95) and the D4666 ($100) at the local tool store, but I’ve read the problems many have had with the plastic wheels on the D2057A so I opted for the D4666. I’m sorry to say that I’m a bit disappointed, even at only $100. This model does come with what appear to be cast iron wheels with a polyurethane “tire”. However, they l...

Support stand

Support stand

12-15-2020 06:40 PM by Rich1955 | 2 comments »

My daughter saw me looking at this stand at Rockler and purchased it for my birthday. I have a very small shop and don’t have room for a permanent outfeed table for my table saw or bandsaw. This stand is great, it’s heavy enough not to tip over, the 3 row’s of bearings support the work well and you don’t have to worry about it pulling your work into the blade like those with only a single roller. When i’m finished I fold the top and store it away. I don’t ...

Great choice for portable support

Great choice for portable support

12-13-2019 07:58 PM by Rich | 18 comments »

This review is for the BORA Centipede Work Support. It’s a very handy, lightweight and versatile option for portable support. As you can see in the review photo, the one I use is the 2×4 foot model. Actually, I bought two of them. It’s available in 4×4 and 4×8 as well, but I felt having two of the smaller units would be more versatile. After using them for a few weeks, I think I made a good choice. The Centipede comes with a very nice fitted case, however, I...

Casters work ok, but better with add ons

Casters work ok, but better with add ons

11-11-2019 10:27 AM by jbmaine | 7 comments »

Hi everyone, Some of you might have seen one of my latest builds, A butcher block top assembly table etc. Like most everything else in my shop, I wanted it mobile. This caster set was on sale, so I ordered it. A lot of reviews said it was possible for the wheel to get caught partially under the bench leg if mounted were the instructions said to. Also, raising them one at a time could cause stress on them ( one review said the caster broke doing this, too much weight on one caster). Many use...

Heavy Duty Mobile Base

Heavy Duty Mobile Base

06-20-2019 12:04 AM by Fiddy | 3 comments »

Picked this up on Grizzly’s site. Had been needing to get a base under the 12” jointer I bought awhile back now. Only machine that wasn’t mobile so I’ve been wanting to get that done. Not sure what it weighed, but it’s a beast so I wanted something that it wouldn’t max out. This option was really not too bad in cost, but I did need extensions for the length as it wouldn’t make it. For those needing it for a jointer like this, it did pose a problem as it only went down to around 18” and I need...
