Hitachi C10RA3 Review

231 days ago by Edwardnorton | 10 comments »

I have had this saw for sometime now and all I can say about it is for others not to buy one. I suppose my purchase of this is out of pure ignorance in serious wood working / hobby & crafting. I thought I knew tools since I had been a contractor for 30 years but boy O boy was I wrong. First of all the miter gauge is an odd ball size which made building my table sled a real challenge. I also had a difficult time building a zero clearance dado blade insert for it because of the flanges a...

I got this saw about 3weeks ago, and let me just say i love this thing!!! it’s definitely a manly saw. first off it has a TON of power i just cut a 3×3 blank of hard maple no problem what so ever, and I’ve been using the blade that came with it (12’‘x1 60 tooth) to my surprise the blade is actually a decent one. I really like the slider action on it it’s nice and solid. The miter stops and scale are dead on, as for the bevels they needed a “little tuni...

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

607 days ago by HarveyM | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw at the beginning of our home addition/renovation with the intention of using it to do the trim work. I wanted a professional quality saw without breaking the budget (I had the contractors for the budget busting). We had a 600 sq. ft new master bedroom/ensuite and family room added to our 960 sq. ft bungalow. The construction crew (Architecture students under a Professional Architect/construction contractor) immediately started using it for framing (honestly if I had real...

Hitachi C12RSH Dual Compound Sliding Miter W/Laser Marker

Hitachi C12RSH Dual Compound Sliding Miter W/Laser Marker

I have been kicking around getting a 12 inch slider for some time. I have had my craftman 10 inch basic miter saw for amost 20 yrs. She has served me well but I wanted more x cutting capability instead of using the table saw for long planks. I have had this saw for 2 weeks now and really gotten to get a feel for how she performs. I don’t give out 5 stars easily. I’m hard on my tools but I must say this is a great saw. I was surprised it came with a good quality carbide blade. I...

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

957 days ago by mrg | 10 comments »

I bought this saw last month after doing quite a bit of research and looking for the best bang for the buck. This saw had very good reviews on the internet and I spoke with a couple of contractors that had this saw and got good reviews from them also. If you are going to be using this saw on job sites you will need a portable stand for it, this thing is no light weight it weights in at 65 pounds. I checked the back fence, bevels and miter angles and this thing was set perfect from the f...

After a couple of years with the C10fl

After a couple of years with the C10fl

I have had my Hitachi for a couple of years. I have used it for ripping while building a huge deck on my house and also for various woodworking projects.I have noticed the Hitachi brand at lowes is now porter cable and brown. I bought my drill press there also, says Delta on mine and Porter cable on the new ones. I think Hitachi is juat a name (like sears) and these things are made on bid in China.I also only gave $300 for mine. I had coupon and the saw was on sale.I have actually been p...

Wow! What a difference. I purchased this router with a gift card last Christmas but had never even opened the box until today. My POS Black n Decker died midway through flush trimming my Work Shop doors. Quick setup on this beauty and started trimming. Made me a little teary eyed when I started cutting with it. Oh so quiet, maybe 1/2 the decibels of the old POS. Electronic soft start (mmmmmmmm). Comfortable grips and low vibration. Cuts twice as smooth with the EXACT SAME BIT. You canno...

Reliable, Well-Made 1 3/8" Pin Nailer

Reliable, Well-Made 1 3/8" Pin Nailer

1052 days ago by NiteWalker | 8 comments »

I bought this pin nailer primarily to hold small maple corner blocks in place while the glue sets. I tried brad nails and they would split the small 1 3/8”L x 3/4”W x 3/4” T blocks. I originally had my eyes on the Grex P635. For my application I didn’t need a pin nailer that could shoot the longer pins, so it came down to the Hitachi and the Grex. I decided on the Hitachi for a couple of reasons:- It was half the price of the Grex (it’s even less now on amazon...

Excellent Saw for the Cost

Excellent Saw for the Cost

1232 days ago by Wodbug | 23 comments »

After reading the many reviews here both pro & con, and seeing the many years all of them were written, I thought to start a new thread to add my 2 cents worth. My saw was bought in 2005, replacing a 25 year old 10” Craftsman that was given to a close friend.The pro & cons: The fence is quite flimsy and very difficult to keep adjusted, so I bought a 26” utility fence from Rockler. After a tedius install having to drilll additional holes for brackets, and using some angled ...
