Great Customer Service

Great Customer Service

02-14-2022 03:08 PM by MagicalMichael | 4 comments »

I have a number of ECE planes, all purchased about 40 years ago. On two of them, the improved Jack & Improved Smoother I found that I was no longer able to keep the blade square, which I attributed to wear at the contact point between the two tensioning rods. After a futile search in the US for replacement parts I wrote to them in Germany. They offered to send me these small parts free of charge as long as I made an equivalent (40 Euros) donation to a charity. Customer service just ...

Extend your Bessey's reach.

Extend your Bessey's reach.

Boy and Girls, I hate reviewing products that I haven put through the wringer, however, this was too big to put in the laundry, let alone the washing machine. While I needed them desperately a few weeks ago, it has been on back order for over 3 months and just arrived yesterday (circa 2022-02-03). Consequently, the project it could have been tested on is completed and I can only go through the motions of evaluating it without the appropriate real life stresses (other than on me).This a...

My love/hate relationship with Gorilla glue

My love/hate relationship with Gorilla glue

02-05-2022 04:41 AM by HapHazzard | 15 comments »

Years ago I was sitting in my wife’s car wondering how I was going to attach the mirror to the windshield when my neighbor just happened to stop by with a bottle of glue. “Ever try this stuff?” he asked. “It’s really great glue.” Well, you can probably guess what’s coming. “Lemme see that,” I said. He handed me a small plastic bottle labeled “Gorilla Glue.” I marked the location of the mirror base on the outside of the winds...

Laguna Fusion table saw is junk

Laguna Fusion table saw is junk

02-02-2022 10:12 PM by Steve | 9 comments »

I bought a Laguna Fusion 2 table saw and noticed I was not getting consistent cuts. It turns out the saw was defective – the entire motor/trunnion assembly had constant movement/shimmy, even with the blade locked down. Laguna agreed it was defective and sent me a replacement F2. Unfortunately it had THE SAME PROBLEM! Once again Laguna agreed it was defective and this time sent me a new F3 saw, Laguna’s top of the line table saw. This time the blade raise/lower mechanism was out of ali...

good for most clamping, not all

good for most clamping, not all

I’ve had these BORA parallel clamps for a year or so and wanted to jot down some opinions of them for everyone. Generally I like them. They are smooth to operate, intuitive (lift up on the handle to release and move the head), can apply a huge amount of clamping pressure, I like the little elevation foot thing on the far end of the clamp, the spacers are nice, build quality is good. Really, for regular clamping I don’t have any complaints and they have been great. However, l...

Great Trim Jig

Great Trim Jig

01-21-2022 02:25 AM by Redoak49 | 9 comments »

I bought this based on the previous review. I am building some drawer units with 1/2” plywood edge with 1/2×1/2 Oak strips. When I have done this in the past, it has taken a lot of time to get the oak even with the plywood. With the Little Lipper it was a very fast easy process. I did have to drill a hole in the bottom plate of the router but this was easy. For a router bit, I used a 3 cutter Freud bit and it left a smooth cut. I wish that I had this in the past.

Grizzly G1023RLX 10" 3HP saw with extended table

Grizzly G1023RLX 10" 3HP saw with extended table

01-19-2022 02:59 PM by bp2878 | 7 comments »

I purchased this saw to replace an old craftsman contractor saw, probably 40 years old. I have been wanting a cabinet saw and decided to purchase one at the end of last year when grizzly had their end of year sell. Then, i decided not to make the big purchase since my saw was functioning, just not what I wanted. I have a 4×8 workbench that my craftsman was inset into so I essentially had an extended rip capacity and outfeed table all built in to my craftsman saw. Also had 8’ rail a...

Slam-dunk, No Regrets--Great Basic Saw For Everything

Slam-dunk, No Regrets--Great Basic Saw For Everything

01-17-2022 01:56 AM by jayseedub | 5 comments »

I don’t know where I saw this saw recommended to me, but I bought it a few years ago and it never fails to make me smile. I use it for fine-detail work, I use it for rough-cutting 2×4s, I use it for cutting off shims in handy-man jobs—everything. I keep the teeth protected with the flimsy plastic tooth-sheath, and it just keeps on cutting. Narrow kerf, fast fast cut, cuts on the pull-stroke—handle is comfortable—and it’s cheap. $18 at Home Depot? Is...
