Anyone in DC/MD/VA need a table saw? - 4 replies

$300 Delta cabinet saw. Seems like a good deal. I’d consider buying it myself, but I’ve been bleeding money lately and don’t really ‘need’ to upgrade my current saw. http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/tls/4350830143.html

Craftsman 21833 for $458 - 1 reply

I don’t own this saw, but I’ve seen some recent posts where people have been interested in buying one. Its currently on sale for $458. If you sign-up and buy through Fatwallet.com, you can get another 6% cash back. I’ve seen this saw as low as $419, but that was 2ish years ago. It typically priced between $499-$549. Its eligibl...

Delta Contractor Saw ID/Value - 15 replies

Anyone know if this is a universal or induction powered saw from this pic alone?? I know Delta has offered both motor configurations at one time or another. The seller can’t give me a model number or much else in the way of additional info. Whats the most you could see yourself paying for it? Thanks for any input.

Convincing myself to buy quality (warning-mindless ramble) - 25 replies

I first began woodworking and craft building about 6 years ago. At that time, I made considerably less money than I do now, and was starting my tool collection with only a drill, circular saw, and a dremel to my name. Given my tight budget and thirst for greater skill/capability, I tended to buy low end tools. I didn’t want to pass over an inter...

Any reason I shouldn't buy this Bosch Router kit? - 16 replies

*Nevermind. I responded to the post within 15 minutesof it going live. Apparently, that wasn’t good enough- someone beat me to it. Thats the first time I’ve responded to an ad that quick….and got beat. I thought I had it in the bag. DAMN I just responded to a Craigslist listing for a Bosch router kit. I believe its model 161...

I’ve had a 113 TS for a couple years now. I upgraded it with a Delta T2 fence a while back. I like the saw, but it has a few tiny issues, to include a small touch of arbor run-out. BUtI found a 315.228390 TS today for $100. Its in nice shape and comes with:Align-a-rip fenceMobile baseCast Iron Router wing.I’ve been planning to buy a ...

Dust Collection vent to the exterior of home. - 17 replies

I recently sold my small 3/4hp Delta DC. It worked well, but took up valuable floor space. My intention was to try to get by with only a shopvac, but thats not going to cut it. I am considering some sort of small DC that I can mount to the wall, and hopefully allow the dust to jettison through the wall of my garage, to the exterior of my house. ...

Ebay Auctions- I don't get it. - 22 replies

SO I’ve been in the market for a Veritas Mk II honing guide. It sells for $68.50 on the Lee Valley Website. Since I like to save a buck whenever I can, and I don’t mind buying used tools, I’ve been stalking ebay for said product. The last auction I followed ended at $66 plus $10 in shipping. Why would someone buy a used tool, o...

Need a part for this Wilton Corner Vise - 9 replies

So this Wilton corner vise magically followed me home today. Its in pretty decent condition EXCEPT there is excessive play in the moveable jaw/chop. It appears that a C-clip might be missing that was formerly installed over the threaded rod, inside of the moving chop. Thats a spade bit I’m using to point toward the parts in question. I loo...

Whats so good about a leg vise? - 33 replies

I ask this question out of ignorance, as I’ve never used a leg vise before. But- I’ve have a Lee Valley Vise Screw sitting in my garage for 4-5 years now. I bought it from the restore for $5. I didn’t really need it, but for $5….it was coming home with me. I’ve considerd adding a leg vise to one of my benches, but n...

What do we think about the Craftsman 22116?? - 11 replies

So my current table saw is a Craftsman 113.298762 with a Delta T2. Generally speaking, I’m satisfied with it. But I do have a few gripes:1- The (stock) stand its currently mounted to is a bit flimsy. I’m not afraid it will collapse or anything, but its far from solid. I could (and might) build a new stand for it. 2- The arbor has a m...

Record 169 Bench Stop - 5 replies

I snagged this NOS Record #169 Bench Stop off ebay a couple years ago. I didn’t exactly ‘need’ it for anything. Definitely an impulse buy. But for less than $20 shipped…....what the hell. Its been collecting dust ever since I bought it. In fact, it was buried under a bunch of other crap in my old shop (in my old house). I...

Paging Track/Plunge Saw Owners - 10 replies

So I’m on the cusp of buying the Makita SP6000 Track saw with a 55” rail (for starters). My current (crappy) circular saw is ok for hacking 2×4s and other rough work, but is woefully unsuitable for anything else. I also have several projects in-mind that require larger panels. My Craftsman 113 Tablesaw is good for lots of tasks,...

Save my tools!! - 8 replies

So I moved into a new home in June. My workshop is in my two-car garage which I share with my wife’s car. My previous home (townhome) was only a few miles away, had a one-car garage. The problem: My tools seem to accumulate rust at a MUCH faster rate than they use to in the old house. It just stays more humid in the larger garage, which is...

Workbench (impulse buy) - 7 replies

So I have intended to build myself a new workbench for quite some time now. I’ve had grand visions of Roubos or some other piece of workbench art. However, I simply don’t have the time or patience to make that happen. If I were to start such a project today; it’d probably be a year before it were completed. That said, I’v...

Pilot holes- Selecting the appropriate drill bit diameter - 18 replies

if you ever need a quick way to guage the diameter of a bolt/screw for a pilot hole, I found this trick while browsing some old volumes of popular mechanics. Probably old news to many. But might be useful to some. I could have used this trick a few weeks ago had I known about it. Yes- i could have used a caliper gauge, but my adjustable wrench i...

Nice Deal- Craftsman Nextec Drill/Driver Combo - 11 replies

I bought a Craftsman Nextec impact driver a month or two ago. I’ve used it virtually every day since and have been very happy with it. I paid $65ish for JUST the driver. And feel its a good value at that price.However, Sears is currently selling a combo with the same driver AND a drill for $45. Comes with a quick charger and one battery. A...
