A great buy for the price at Lowes Hardware

A great buy for the price at Lowes Hardware

05-31-2009 08:56 PM by cabinetmaster | 16 comments »

My boss went to Lowes Hardware the other night and came back and handed me this combo set of drill and impact. Lowes has this on sale this week for only $149. The Impact by itself sells for $129. I used it all day Friday and let me tell you. This impact alone has more power than the regular 12 volt Hitachi impact driver. And light. Every time I pick it up I wonder if someone took the battery out. This impact and drill are so light weight and comfortable. You can use these drills all day an...

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

Hitachi C12RSH Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw

12-18-2011 05:47 AM by mrg | 16 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...

One Simply Sweet Saw

One Simply Sweet Saw

I purchased this saw about 6 months ago and have been very happy with its performance. I did lots of research and read many reviews on many different saws and also received some great feedback from other LJ’s. I decided that for the money and my intended usage, this offered the most bang for the buck. I have used and own several different Hitachi tools and they have always performed very well for me. In some of the reviews I read, it was said that the sub fence was either bent or broken, p...

Excellent Performer for the Money

Excellent Performer for the Money

The M12VC is Hitachi’s basic fixed base 11 amp router, that includes variable speed, soft start, and electronic feedback to maintain a set RPM throughout the cut. It’s also available in a kit as the KM12VC that includes both the fixed and plunge bases. The sub-base accepts the standard size PC style bushing adaptors. I purchased the M12VC in hopes it would be more manageable than my heavier Bosch 1617 for dovetail work. Mine was a refurb purchased through Reconditioned Sale...

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 C10FL Hybrid Table Saw - Awesome saw for the money

Hitachi C10FL Hybrid Table Saw - Awesome saw for the money

06-03-2008 05:56 AM by Weekend_Carpenter | 13 comments »

I just bought this saw ($499 – 15%(Promo) – 10% (coupon) -$100 (gift card thru MIR), and I love it. This is my second table saw, and I am far from a professional woodworker (that is why I bought a $500 TS ;), and not a $1000+ Jet table saw). I have used it with pine and cedar in the month that I have had it. It cut great through both, even when using the dado blade. This saw is not perfect, but it is a lot better than the others in the same price range. Here are the pros, and cons (and no I d...

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

Fantastic saw for rough or finish work

02-03-2010 06:15 AM by wannabe | 13 comments »

Hi all, Since I’ve read so much good advice, I thought I’d contribute a little myself. I’ve had the C10FSH for a couple of years now and have to say it is hands down a fantastic saw. It’s a dual bevel 10 inch slider that I bought so I could cut some boards to lay under a shed. I’ve also used it for some fine trim work and hope to use it for some furniture building. It is dead-on accurate and doesn’t need to be readjusted unless you change the blade. ...

The Hitachi WH10DL “Micro” impact driver performs well beyond it’s diminuitive size. It features a 10.8 volt (12 volt max) 1.5Ah Lithium Ion battery technology and has a whopping 840 in/lbs of torque, an impact feature, an LED light, reversible variable speed (400 rpm max operating speed), and weighs in at a mere 2.2 lbs. The WH10DL includes two batteries, 40 minute charger, and a nice hard side carrying case. For new tools, Hitachi offers a lifetime warranty on their Li-I...

Hitachi CW 40 16" Scroll Saw

Hitachi CW 40 16" Scroll Saw

01-29-2009 04:22 AM by MrsN | 10 comments »

For Mother’s Day last year my husband asked what I wanted. I said a scroll saw. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but I didn’t have one and I wanted one. Since that is about the same logic that keeps my husband buying chain saws I knew my reasoning would work. (I think the chain saw count is up to 6, just yesterday he came home saying “but I don’t have this one, and it has a turbo, none of mine have a turbo)Not knowing exactly what I would do with the...
