  • Tool Recommendations by owners?

    In my experience people tend to project mostly what they like about the tools

    they buy. I guess it's just human nature to want others to think they always

    make good choices. I like to know as much information as possible good and

    bad about what I buy. As some of you already know from some of my

    previous posts I will tell you exactly what I like or dislike about tools I buy.

    Naturally the longer you use a tool the better you can give an opinion as to

    its good as well as bad features. For the members looking for information

    on woodworking tools I would like to see owner reccomendations pointing

    out all the good and all the bad. Just a thought.

    One of the biggest problems we will encounter in the manufacturer making changes. Take the Dewalt scroll saw for example. When they 1st came out it was one of the best bang for the buck scroll saws. Then changes are made and now they can be problematic. Not every saw of course but enough where you might 2nd guess buying one now. I think this may be the case with just about everything being made today.
    But still a good idea for us to keep sharing our opinions on what we are buying. Some manufactures are still putting out a quality tool.

      He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

      Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

      I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
