  1. What tools did you buy today?

    @BMack37 glad they made it to you. You never sent that payment info and I saw where you said you were looking for another set. [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Good to hear. This will give me a few more sizes as well.the DeWalt are made in Sheffield England so they probably come from the same place. Haven't got a chance to check them out yet. I stopped by home to grab an apple while on shift. Will check them out more when I get home. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Sears rewards purchase. Took a good chunk of the price out. Like to see how these compare to my DeWalt set. I'm sure they were made in the same factory in England. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    So far so good. It runs smoothly. Still new to bandsaws so can't say it is better or worse than others. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Got the rails cut. Still need fine tuning to get exactly where they need to be. Got it fitted enough do a mock-up and see how this table is really going to look. The corners are all proud by 1/8". They will be rounded over to give a really nice look and feel. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Got the bridle joints cut on the long rails. Rough chiseled one out. Three more to go and to fine tune them. Will have to wait for tomorrow. My table on the bandsaw was too high so I had to use my leg chop plus some plywood to bring it up to level. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I got the table taken down and I cut the access holes into the t track rail. I had some chip out but managed to glue them all back on. All the chip outs were in the exact same corner. Frustrating. On the plus side the Makita dust collection hood works really well even with a busing guide. Im sure it would suck up everything without the guide. Took 3 different adapters for it to fit on my Bosch hose. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  12. 10.8V now 12V worldwide

    I don't get it. Let's just take a circular saw for example. It has one job and that is to cut something. The tests put on by tool box buzz for example are the same people who actually use them day in and day out. Rob has a company with the same people. In the tests they are replicating that tools one job. So how can they not be accurate? Or show the ballpark range of the tools capabilities? I take their testing over what a manufacturer says any day of the week because they or anyone else actually shows the tool in use. I dont see any difference verses someone taking a camera to a job site and following them for a day. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  14. Always check your bevel

    I use my wixy guage to make sure I'm at 0 to the bed. I've grown accustomed to checking the miter for 0 as well since I had been trying to dial in the Bosch saw which I seem to finally have done. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. Rrich1's shop project builds.

    Got some work done after shift tonight! Got the castor's on and 2 coats of Danish oil! She is looking great! The power tech castor's I had bought came with dinky screws. I replaced them with 2" lag screws to be safe. 2 of them broke on me even though I pre drilled. I got one out but the other I had to leave in. I drilled two holes in the bracket and used 2 1/2" kreg screws along with the bottom lag bolts. I don't see it being an issue. The castor's work extremely well and give a lot of lift. They are rubber and glide over the garage floor. The Danish oil gave the bench a nice color. I used natural. Almost with I went with a walnut but thought it might be too dark. It looks great though and am happy. It made the cherry dowels really stick out which I was hoping for. Some before during and after pics below. Still need to finalize a chop design and still waiting on the vise screw. Other than that I think the bench is done. I originally bought an old brod head Garret vise to put on but I don't think I am. It would require me to route a lot of the top out to get it almost flush with the top and i don't want to do that. At some point in the near future I will drill some dog holes.
