Supermax 19-38 Drum Sander

I received the SuperMax 19-38 "open end" drum sander about 3 weeks ago before starting my latest kitchen.  I ordered it through Acme Tools, shipping was great, machine was packaged very well and arrived on time.  I have not used the Jet/Performax sanders, but have seen them in local stores, this machine by far surpasses them in size and how it's machined.  This unit is extremely heavy and impressive.  I was a little leary in the 1 3/4 hp motor and how it would handle larger jobs, but it…

SawStop Professional 3HP/52" rip

Received the SawStop about a week ago and have used it enough that I think I can write a review.  First off, I bought this saw due to the safety aspect, my old saw was a 3HP Shop Fox. 

The things I like about the saw:

-Dust collection is better than my previous saw, the blade is encased in a…

Oneida V3000 Cyclone

I got the cyclone installed yesterday and am most impressed with it.  I have owned the 2hp Harbor Freight and then upgraded to a 2HP Shop Fox (1550 CFM) so as with every machine I've ever owned I seem to buy 3 before I get to the one that really works.  Some form of dust collection is better than no dust collection at…

Spiral Dust Pipe

     I have finally decided to do some proper dust collection in the shop and it was a painstaking process.  I have ordered the Oneida V-3000 system (which hasn't arrived yet) and will do a review on that when it shows up.  Onto the pipe; I ordered it through…

Byrd Shelix Journel Head (installed on 15inch Jet)

Finally got the Byrd Shelix Journal Head installed on my planer.  Ordered it through Holbren, Sawmill Creek members get 10% off, SMC10 is the code.  First off, I installed the head by myself and it was completely painless, I was shocked to say the least.  I will say that I am thrilled that I had Byrd install new bearings for me and I would suggest if you are thinking of upgrading that you do the same thing.  I also ordered a new gasket for the gear box while I was at it, I would recommend…

Jet 1 1/2 hp Shaper

What an awesome little machine!  The machine comes with a 1/4 and 1/2 inch collet for router bits and a 1/2 and 3/4 inch spindle for shaper cutters.  Changing of the bits are extremely easy from a lock on the underside of the table, belt tensioning is a dream.  This is a little…

Shop Fox 2HP W1666

Got the Shop Fox setup with help from my 9 year old son in 45 minutes. * Note: a 220v plug is not included so if you decide to buy, you need to purchase one*.  I moved up from a HF Dust Collector with 15 feet of piping and a trash can separater before the collector.  I can't measure the CFM of the HF, but I can tell you that this Dust Collector outperforms hands-down.  The Collector was $360.00…

Infinity HSS knives for DW735 13 inch Dewalt Planer

Ok, like many DW735 owners have already noticed, this planer eats knives like a fat kid on cake.  Are infinity knives the solution like many have said in their reviews?  In my opinion, yes and no.  The pros are that the knife life is much longer than the standard Dewalts, but the cut quality is not there.  You will see a picture enclosed of a piece of Maple that I sent through the planer on it's second pass and how the blades pulled the grain and left small grooves.  These knives are 2 sided…
