After a couple of years with the C10fl

After a couple of years with the C10fl

959 days ago by jeepers06 | 4 comments »

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...

I have always looked at Hitachi Tools when they first came out and starting reading all the reviews I could find on there new line of tools.I was REALLY impressed because after reading( the reviews..) on them I never once read anything bad about there products.I even posted questions on several Woodworkers forums.When the time came to replace my tired old Delta I chose an Hitachi 12 inch Compound Miter Saw,well also for the fact I got a great deal on it too..!!As always when buying a new too...

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

605 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...

Little green screwdriving man

Little green screwdriving man

I bought this to replace my 18v DeWalt hammer drill as my go-to screwdriver. I got the hex chuck version – it’s nice to be able to slip bits in and not have to deal with tightening the chuck. You can also get drill bits and countersinks in hex shank, so if you need to use it for those functions as well, you can. My primary objective with this purchase was to get something lighter, and therefore easier to get into tight spots and to reduce the strain on my arm when doing a lot...

worked the saw hard for 2 years

worked the saw hard for 2 years

2085 days ago by Todd McDonald "2 Bored Saws" | 2 comments »

I bought that same saw (Hitachi) two years ago, I have worked it hard cutting 3×3x8’ oak up into 1×1x8’ then into 1×1x5 inches, it has never quit me. I threw that plastic dust collection pan in the trash, and make my own that fits a 4” duct. I am about to buy another one. This saw has made me alot of money. I don’t use it every day, but every other day I work the crap out of it. I am not a pro (not close) just a extra money type a job. All my cuts ...

None slider 5 star

None slider 5 star

1239 days ago by Routerisstillmyname | 2 comments »

After a few disasters with sub $200 sliders and a dual rail miter sled, I decided to grab one of these none sliders. And @ $120, this made it impossible to resist for too long.I blew the sales they had on Amazon and also the sales they had on-line at sears but got lucky in store deal. So I grabbed it. Any way, right out of box the accuracy was an impressive within 0.1 in all aspects.Not bad at all but not good enough for a calibration fanatic like myself. So after an hour or so of tweaks, ...

Table Saw

Table Saw

This was one of my first purchases when I first started woodworking. I thought it would be all I needed. I was wrong. Don’t get me wrong. It does cut pretty true and functions really well, but you cannot find or use any accessories on the saw. I looked high and low for zero clearance throat inserts, but ended up making my own. I tried to find a featherboard that would fit, but no luck. On dado blades your limited to I think it is 1/2”. If you look in any woodworking retail...

Powerful corded drill for serious users

Powerful corded drill for serious users

2073 days ago by ferstler | 0 comments »

I picked this drill up at Lowe’s for $119 quite some time ago when my wife decided I would build an extensive wooden walkway network out in our yard. Since such things are going to have to be built out of pressure-treated wood I knew I would need a powerful drill to push 1/2-inch bits through wet lumber. I had already drilled lumber like that for a deck job some years back, and I will say that the 3/4 amp drills I had on hand to do the work were stressed by the project considerably. ...
