My BT3100 Table Saw Upgrades

08-07-2014 05:41 PM by JD13 | 4 comments »

Years ago when I just needed a cheap table saw for misc household projects, I bought a Ryobi BT3100 at Home Depot. At that time, it was cheap and was one of the nicer ones for the money. Now, years later, as I am getting back into woodworking, I need a good saw that will handle jigs and such. I know this is a divided topic – some LOVE it, some HATE. I own one and I’m still on the fence. It only had a miter slot on one side, doesn’t have a nice flat cast-iron bed and ...

Transcripts of Testimony of Ryobi lawsuit on Wood

04-15-2010 05:53 PM by David Craig | 31 comments »

I know this topic has been beat to death here, I mean really clubbed good. But Wood has an interesting accounting of the trial regarding Mr. Osorio and the lawsuit regarding the mishap with the Ryobi saw here. While my opinion holds firm that Ryobi is not at fault for not having “flesh sensing technology,” the transcripts of the case point out that Carlos was fairly new at woodworking and his company presented the saw sans blade guard and splitter. It is a good read to at least un...

Wonderful - Man sues Ryobi and HD because he cut himself on the saw

03-09-2010 02:59 PM by David Craig | 93 comments »

Not sure who all heard the news for today, but a lawsuit was won against Ryobi for not incorporating blade stop technology on their saw. This guy apparently fed his hand through the tablesaw and Ryobi is to blame for not protecting him. I hope this gets overturned. I believe blade stop is a good thing to have available but there is a reason why I do not have a SawStop which has to do with cost. If this goes through, there are going to be a ton of lawsuits filed against many saw manufacturer w...

Hi, my name is John and I am a Tool Junkie #1: Grizzly Tent Sale - Muncy PA - Sept 13, 2008

09-15-2008 04:28 PM by John | 9 comments »

Where can you buy 1000 (full size) sheets of (nice, waterproof) sandpaper for $1.00? Those were the first things to go; I managed to grab 2 boxes in the frenzy, one box of 150 grit, one of 280… Need a sheet? let me know! At 8:00 Saturday morning, Grizzly Industrial’s annual tent sale in Muncy PA opened their doors. I thought I would check this thing out, and actually got there 15 minutes early thinking I would take a look around before the crowds showed up at 10:00 or so…...

Power Tools, What a Mess!

07-01-2008 11:56 AM by Eric | 0 comments »

Well I finally decided to get rid of my one remaining power tool, a 2HP Ryobi router with 3 bases and a case of bits. Today I fired it up and ran it over a board with a few different bits just to test it out, and I probably created more sawdust in ten minutes than I have in the past six months with hand tools. Now I see why you guys fuss so much over dust extraction! Man oh man. So anyway, I’ve posted an ad for my router over in the Forums, so go check it out if you’re inter...

Quick and Easy Blade Changes on the AP1300... (perhaps in bizaro world)

05-21-2008 03:37 AM by Damian Penney | 24 comments »

In this blog entry I’m going to demonstrate how easy it is to change blades on the Ryobi AP1300 Planer. A quick read of the manual will tell you that all you need to do is remove the cover, lock the cutterhead in place by rotating it and then remove the screws with the included hex key. Sounds simple right… Well here I shall demonstrate the actual process. Step One, strip the included hex key on any screw you choose, grind it down with a grinder, try again, strip it again...
