Rockler Fence Flip Stop Does Not Work

Rockler Fence Flip Stop Does Not Work

01-21-2019 10:08 PM by CaptainKlutz | 11 comments »

Summary: This flip stop is not accurate or repeatable, purchase not recommended. It only earns 1 star, due fact that you can still use it a little (and forums won’t let me use zero star).You can tighten the flip stop bolt snug and at least use it as fixed stop that doesn’t flip – you have to remove it when you don’t want to use it. :-( Bought the #53648 Rockler Drill Press Fence awhile back, and it came with this flip stop. I almost never use the flip stop on d...

Renovoparts.com DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM!!!!

01-20-2019 03:45 PM by penturner2 | 18 comments »

I made the mistake of ordering a replacement switch for my old Delta 42” lathe 46-715 from Renovoparts.com on 11.25.18. They took my order & money but refuse to get the part to me. To date they still haven’t even placed the order. I have called every Friday to inquire (they never answer emails). Each time I got a different excuse. The part number I ordered has been replaced but their site showed them in in stock. I spoke to the owner several times (big mistake) he is very unpr...

Veritas Beading Tool - Similar to Scratch Stock (It's hard work)

Veritas Beading Tool - Similar to Scratch Stock (It's hard work)

01-15-2019 04:58 PM by PPK | 3 comments »

Just got done cutting a bead into another project. Pros:-The fence is great. One of the best features, in my opinion. Regular scratch stocks don’t have this fence that has a large surface area. It’s easy to keep the tool aligned with the work. With beading tools/scratch stocks, if the fence slips away from the edge of the work, you’ve got a ruined bead, and it looks awful. The fence also can be changed many different orientations to do flat or curved work. I can’...

SawBlade.com Customer service needs work

Ordered the saw from SawBlade.com. After days of not receiving a shipping confirmation I called them and was told they did not have a saw to ship. I told them to refund my money. Fast forward. After several weeks and several calls to their customer service I had to get paypal involved to get my money back.

reviewing WEN's take on the dic/belt sander clone

reviewing WEN's take on the dic/belt sander clone

01-11-2019 07:11 PM by Zonker | 4 comments »

I bought the WEN 6502 4×36-Inch Belt and 6-Inch Disc Sander with Cast Iron Base in October as a “Shop Warming ” gift to myself. I found this style to be the most versatile set up general shop use. I looked at 4 or 5 different brands that are all pretty much the same tool with a different coat of paint and went with the WEN on the grounds of price point. For what it is (a hobbyists general purpose sander) I’ve found it to be a pretty good tool. The packaging held up to ...

Earlex Customer Service: Supports their products AND their customers!

01-11-2019 06:11 PM by Dustin | 2 comments »

I’ve had the Earlex HV5500 for about 10 months, and absolutely love it. The plethora of good reviews and Earlex’s presence here gave me all the reassurance needed that I was making a good purchase. That being said, I made a boo-boo. My shop is frequently in disarray, and my discipline regarding maintenance and clean up is rather lacking, if I’m being honest. So after using my sprayer the last time about 5-6 weeks ago, I absolutely neglected to dump the remainder of the...

Rikon 70-220VSR Midi Lathe

Rikon 70-220VSR Midi Lathe

01-09-2019 11:14 PM by woodchipsron | 7 comments »

Bought this new from Woodcraft on 5/1/2018. Worked absolutely wonderful for a few months – weekend wood turner projects. Started experiencing some delayed starting and inconsistent rpm on motor after about 5 months. Called and spoke to Rikon and they acknowledged that they have a motor problem in some of these – specifically the brush/armature interface. They were very nice about it and indicated that a new motor is forthcoming at no charge but have to wait up to 3 months before a...

Great Resource for Plane Identification

Great Resource for Plane Identification

01-09-2019 12:04 AM by poopiekat | 0 comments »

This is a three-volume set of reference books that focuses on patents for woodworking tools throughout U.S. history.Images of all planes, and a variety of spoke shaves, obscure shoot boards, tools for shoe-making, all compiled from the US Patent office, are shown and described here. Other than a Stanley #11, I was not aware of the huge volume of leather (shoemaking) tools. The primary patent holder, and secondary partners if known are listed along with a basic guide to rarity. Patents a...

Large plastic cap for chain oil limiting amount of oil and causing spill over if not very careful4. Ex...
