Very nice palm router with one annoying flaw

Very nice palm router with one annoying flaw

177 days ago by JayT | 8 comments »

I’ve had this router for nearly two years now, so feel I can give a good review based on actual usage. When looking for a small router to do light tasks, I purchased this one because of the price ($89.99 everyday, purchased on sale for $79.99) and I thought the included larger sub-base with the handles looked like a good idea. It has been used quite a bit and overall has been a good investment. The Good: Soft start. I’ve heard of people not liking soft start motors, bu...

Craftsman Professional Router

Craftsman Professional Router

283 days ago by TianZi | 6 comments »

I recently purchased this Craftsman Professional router, though I did decide to return it a few days later. I only had it for 3-4 days, but figured I’d make an account here to post a review since the original reason I purchased the router was based off of lumberjoe’s review (thanks for the review!). Since his review was from about a year an a half ago, I figured I may as well post a new review since I was able to test it out. His review was very accurate compared to my experience...

Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 Review

Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 Review

601 days ago by Daris | 14 comments »

I’ve had my Craftsman Table Saw for about a year now, and it is rock solid!  I previously owned a craftsman saw that had the tabletop made out of aluminium.  It was okay for the money, but wasn’t very sturdy.  Frequently when I would feed plywood into the table it would tip the whole saw.  My new saw has been really solid and almost a year later I can say I’m very happy with it. Before I go any further though I have to say I have a weird myopic bias for and against ...

A neighbour down the street asked me to look at his mitre saw. He said it wasn’t cutting square in any direction. I tuned it up best as I could and figured, while I’m here, I could review it. 10 inch Craftsman Professional, at first, I was impressed. Craftsman engineers did a good job disguising cheap metal as a ‘professional saw’. The only reason I’m going to be so harsh on this saw is the fact they stick a big “PROFESSIONAL” logo on them. I’...

Great router, great value

Great router, great value

697 days ago by lumberjoe | 24 comments »

As you can probably tell by my reviews, I am not a tool snob. I am an IT engineer with a strong background in mechanical engineering, and am very vigilant about finding the best tool that suits my needs for the best price. Also of note, I have a lot of what most would consider cheap tools. I am not bragging at all, but our household income would likely invoke the “99%” crowd to picket at my doorstep. I feel it is important to mention this because a lot of reviews of “cheap&#...

First Impression Review

First Impression Review

777 days ago by Mike | 10 comments »

Here is my first blush review after less than 5 hours of use: ====================== the Good - Out of the box, the blade was dead nuts on. I did not have the problem that others have had with the blade becoming off angled at full height. Assembly was actually really easy once I looked at the parts and the instructions closely on “difficult” sections. I feel that if you need this kind of table saw and have problems assembling it, you really aren’t reading the ins...

Craftsman 22116  Premium Hybrid Tablesaw

Craftsman 22116 Premium Hybrid Tablesaw

I’ve only had this saw 3 1/2 months but I think I can give a good review. I have to start by saying I did not shop for a new saw. I had a 7 year old Craftsman21140 that Sear’s techs basically ruined, & this is a replacement, but I had to pay $250. out of pocket. You could see that on my ” How I wound up with….” forum post. I really have nothing to compare this saw to, but the 21140. This is a significant upgrade. I really liked the 21140. Doesn’t look t...

Bowl Making Machine

Bowl Making Machine

I bought this lathe used 2 years ago from my neighbor who also turned bowls with it. It’s powerful and easy to use. It will turn up to 38” spindles and turn 15” bowls inboard and up to 20” bowls outboard. I have made about 100 bowls with it and the only issue was the cooling fan belt slipped off once, easy fix. The headstock and tailstock are aligned perfectly and it accepts all the popular accessories like other brands. It may not be a Jet or Nova, but it is buil...

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

874 days ago by wookie | 8 comments »

Hey Jocks and Jockettes, Disclaimer: I gave this product a 2- star rating just based on the problems detailed below. After much drama, hand-wringing, and pure obsession, the 22124 Zip CodeTS is almost complete except for the outfeed table. It was purchased off of CL. The saw was still on the pallet with the steel cage on it. The seller brought two of them in a semi lot of stuff. He sells the stuff at a little store in a small town in southern IL. Very nice man. He wanted $600, no ...

I like to buy my tools by the pound….

And I got money’s worth with the Craftsman Contractor Table Saw, model 21833. One of the benefits to being out of work is that I can shop endlessly on Craigslist- I saw someone selling this good looking table saw for $450.00, checked the reviews on Lumberjocks and decided this might fit my needs. As luck would have it, there were 2 available at the Sears Outlet Store. One was in Minneapolis, 1,500 miles away and one at the store just 25 miles away. I hustled on over, paid $330.00 before ta...
