  • Peachtree #447 2.5" Screw End Dust Collection Hose Adapter

    I recently picked up a 50 foot segment of Peachtree Woodworking's 2.5" clear PVC dust collection hose in order to make some custom length hoses. (That is a separate review). In order to terminate those hoses, I grabbed some of Peachtree's screw end dust collection hose adapters. A simple little device that is nothing more than an injection molded part with the standard 2.25" O.D. friction fitting on one end, a flange / stop in the middle, and a 2.5" left hand screw thread on the other.

    The molding of this item was amazingly smooth and clean. All injection molded plastic pieces should be this clean! There were no ridges, burrs, or odd pieces dangling from anywhere. Nicely done!

    Installing these onto a bulk hose is simple, simply screw it into the hose, remembering that this is a COUNTER threaded item. Keep screwing them down until they stop, and then give the hose a gentle tug to make sure it took right and you are done!

    The ends fit the females on my Shop Vac Sawdust Collection system flawlessly.

    At the current price of $4.50 each, they are slightly overpriced, however, due to the fact that you do not need a hose clamp to retain the hose while using these, I would say in the long run they are worth what Peachtree is asking for them.

    I gave documentation a 1 because this site doesn't have a zero rating. There was no documentation for this, nor should there be. If you can't figure out how to use these reading most likely isn't a strong point for you anyway...

    I will be recommending these to my friends that are setting up their own workshops...

      UPDATE: Consistency issue...

      I am finding the size consistency among these ends is a little bit sloppy, which isn't a problem on anything other than my AP1301 planer, which has a port that is just a hair snug on a shop vac hose. Most of these connectors do not fit. I am having to use a Ridgid hose end on that one connection...

  • A Review of the Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence
    by twistsol
    Over the years, Iíve had multiple router tables. Everything from a small aluminum Craftsman benchtop model, to the router mount on my BT3000, to a custom built version in my old ultimate tool stand and another custom built one in the wide table of my saw. In every case there was something missing or just not quite up to par. The Sommerfeld table and fence change all that and meet nearly all my criteria....

  • Katana Edge Band Set from MLCS
    by twistsol
    Summary
    The setup for both bits in the set took some time to get right, but once set up properly the bits made mostly clean cuts. The reasoning behind the bearing placement on the bit set escapes me but all in all, the set performed well and functioned as advertised. ...

  • FlashCell cordless battery-less power screwdriver Review
    by LCHIEN
    I have owned a Coleman Flashcell screwdriver since about 2009. it does not replace the drill driver (Craftsman 19.2V C3 drill driver with lithium ion cells and clutch) but it replaces small powered screwdrivers for doing repetitive screw driving. The no longer sell them and haven't for several years. I've been wanting one to have handy in the garage shop or house rather than running back and forth.

    The advantage of a cordless, batteryless driver is that it uses a supercapacitor to drive...

  • HF Silver & Deming Drill Bits
    by Bill in Buena Park
    In a recent shop project to make a lathe chuck / center organizer, I needed to drill some holes to accommodate the MT2 shanks of my live centers and drill chucks. For my purposes (a nice snug fit at a certain height), I needed 11/16 holes. None of my forstner bits (also HF) were this size. For some threaded spur center inserts, I needed 9/16 holes. No love there among the forstners either.

    So I found this set of the Silver and Deming bits at HF: http://www.harborfreight.com/s...

  • Dremel vac operated Rotary tool
    by LCHIEN
    I saw this and Lowes has it for $30 and for some reason Amazon has it for $44, so I bought on a whim but its not a winner. The promise was a rotary tool and vacuum tool that cleared the debris as say you were engraving or grinding. It has the blue ring you turn to adjust that allows some vacuum to bypass and thus control speed. It has a few accessories and a clear guide for flat work. It fits most all dremel bits that are 1/8" diameter shank. In reality the RPMs were low (I measured 15,000 with...

  • 3M Prograde Precision flexible sanding sheets
    by sailor55330
    I gave this a shot from a local retailer the other day

    http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...293390692&rt=d. The product itself seems very well made. The abrasive is tight to the backing and shows no sign of flaking off as others do. I used 320 and found it to cut very well. I would actually say the 320 cut better than the red Diablo 220g from the BORG. The actual back...
