Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

883 days ago by cliffton | 3 comments »

First this was an upgrade from my 15 year old Craftsman 14.4 volt cordless drill. I was unable to source batteries for it and it finally died. That being said I got this at my local HD with a 20% Harbor freight coupon and 10% veteran discount. Taking it out of the box, my first impression was that it was very light and didn’t seem “hefty” enough. That being said, I noticed right away that the batteries had charge indicators on them and they both were at 2 lights out of 4...

Oshlun 8" stacked dado review

Oshlun 8" stacked dado review

1632 days ago by cliffton | 26 comments »

Let me preface this review with the only other dado i have used was a very old sears “wobble” dado that i used once and refused to put back on my saw. I bought this last week as rockler had it on sale for 59$ and all the reviews I saw of the 6” set said it was a good buy. Its a stacked set with full blade chippers which i like better than the wing chippers. I used it on a scrap piece of pine and had no tear out and flat bottoms. The cutter blades are made so that they pu...

IGAGING digital angle cube

1654 days ago by cliffton | 8 comments »

I bought this from Rockler about a week ago, it was on sale for 10$ cheaper than the wixey, so i figured why not, if it sucks i can return it. So far I have to say this thing rocks.Pros:-has really strong magnets in it, wont slip at all off of a highly polished blade.-cheaper than wixey-has hold button for odd position angles-numbers auto flip when you turn it upside down to make it easier to read-takes a 9v battery-has magnets on 3 sides ( i dont know if the wixey does)-has machined metal b...

Ridgid R4511 my own little review

Ridgid R4511 my own little review

1671 days ago by cliffton | 33 comments »

just as a disclaimer my last table saw was a craftsman benchtop tablesaw. It worked well for what it was meant for but I was quickly running into its limitations and was getting quite upset with it. This is my first what i would like to call my first “real” table saw in that its meant for precision work and not basically a circle saw mounted upside down. Man this thing was a bugger to find, I called every HD in west TX and east NM and found that one of the Amarillo stores h...
