Lays Down a Beautiful Off-the-Gun Finish

Lays Down a Beautiful Off-the-Gun Finish

03-15-2021 08:32 PM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

YouTube video of the Fuji LX-20 in action… https://youtu.be/p27iiv0Ufh8 For those of you familiar with spray equipment, here is a great HVLP gun that gives superb Off-the-Gun finishes. I’ve used lots of HVLP conversion guns over the years, and had success with some. This LX-20 is on another level. Usually, I have to wet sand my final topcoat, but this thing sprays great right off the gun. It’s fantastic to skip a step when it comes to furniture finishing! Fit and finish are exc...

Surprisingly Handy GearKlamps

Surprisingly Handy GearKlamps

03-15-2021 06:57 PM by pintodeluxe | 12 comments »

I have found these gear driven clamps to be particularly helpful repairing antique rocking chairs. Since the handle is in line with the clamp bar, you can access tight spots that would be impossible with a traditional F-style clamp. In addition to the greater access in difficult to reach areas, I simply like the clamping action of the GearKlamps. They will never fully replace my collection of parallel and pipe clamps, but I think I’ll look to these instead of standard F-style clamps as I a...

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...

SawStop Router Lift, Cast Iron Table, Mobile Stand, Fence & Bora 3.25hp Router

SawStop Router Lift, Cast Iron Table, Mobile Stand, Fence & Bora 3.25hp Router

03-09-2021 12:24 AM by darthford | 10 comments »

Review: Inspection and Assembly of SawStop router lift, cast iron router table, mobile stand, downdraft dust collection box, and fence. Plus a Bora Portamate 3.25hp router motor. Here it is fully assembled. There was a lot of assembly required over several days. I have to say everything fit perfectly there wasn’t a single hitch or issue during assembly. I was quite impressed with the quality, fit and finish. The components seem heavy duty. Here’s the back, that fence is ...

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...

Hello All, I am new to Lumber jocks as a member but I have been lurking around here reading reviews and opinions for a long time. I am in the process of building a new woodworking shop and have gotten a lot of great ideas on shop design, tool selection, and many other tips and tricks. It is really great! I am in the process of purchasing new equipment for my new shop and decided the first purchase to be a Grizzly G0513X2 bandsaw. I made this purchase just yesterday. After reading about ...

Wood-Slicer vs Timberwolf Bandsaw Blades

Wood-Slicer vs Timberwolf Bandsaw Blades

03-02-2021 02:00 PM by Bob A in NJ | 10 comments »

I’ve been a big fan of Timberwolf bandsaw blades for years and recently did two resaw videos on my Youtube channel. The videos were cutting fresh cut maple logs on my Grizzly G0555X. The Timberwolf’s “worked” but I had to apply a fair amount of force to get the wood through the 3/4” 2 tooth per inch blade. I had heard about Wood-Slicer blades and decided to try one. Wow, what a difference! The Wood-Slicer blades are from Highland Woodworking in Atlan...

Great lathe workhorse

Great lathe workhorse

03-01-2021 09:25 PM by CraigR1 | 1 comment »

I got this lathe June 2020. This is a workhorse unit. It has power to spare, I love the rotating headstock and I have never had anything so easy to change voltage input on. I made a 12” pigtail with 220 male plug and 120 female plug, plugged it in and it auto recognizes the voltage. I love not have to change jumpers or move wiring inside the unit. I have without an outrigger turned 22” platter. The great thing about the rotatable headstock is me having several aftermarket replac...
