01. shippingI ordered this from reconditionedsales.comPackaging was pretty normal, like the standard for this type of tool. Huge box to say the least. Ordered on a Friday and received the saw on a Tuesday morning with regular UPS shipping. 02. hardware listEverything was in the box. Box looked like it was new. This was however a reconditioned miter saw, but I could not tell it at all. 03. assemblingEasy, not much to do. 04. tuning and adjustingAdjusted the insert throat on each s...

Newest 12 Volt Lith

Newest 12 Volt Lith

I just wanted to share the latest addition to my cordless tool set. I have been building my Makita LXT inventory throughout the years. In the past I have used several brands of the 12 volt lithium sets. I first bought a Sears Nextec drill/jigsaw/flashlight set. It actually was a good set, but I found a few annoying things about the tools. The sears drill had a sticky speed switch and the jigsaw was awkward to hold in your hand and switch on. It worked better as a reciprocating saw. To ofte...

This has to be the best hammer/drill/driver that i’ve ever used. It’s power/weight combo is perfect. I could use this drill all day without being fatigued and the battery would keep on going. Drilling 1 1/4” holes with speedbore max bits does not pose a problem for this drill. It eats through lumber with ease. This drill easily drills in 3/16” holes in concrete (just as fast as our corded hammer drill) to drive in anchors and it doesn’t take much to drill u...

First of all, this is a good product overall. If you are going to buy one, or just have, you might benefit from the following setup tips: 1. The oil filler cap is a single piece, consisting of the cap and attached tube. It may look like you can separate the cap from the tube, but don’t bother to try. Simply screw the whole piece into the threaded oil filler opening. No need to tighten too hard. Finger tight plus a bit more will be more than sufficient. You will not need to remove thi...

Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

I purchased this compressor as a replacement for a 26Gal 5HP husky I had. There was nothing wrong with the Husky it was simply that my space could not accommodate it. I intended to use this as a homeowner who always has a project and as someone who uses compressed air for multiple purposes. I did alot of research and narrowed it down to either the MAC5200 or the DeWalt D55146. I decided on the Makita because of the lower price and the oil lubricated pump. The reason oil lubrication was import...

Best mid sized portable for nail guns

Best mid sized portable for nail guns

Makita MAC5200: A very well designed easy to use compressor! My shop used to run on a multi-thousand dollar Ingersoll rand 120 gallon 7 horse power 3 phase, 2 stage compressor circa 1969. We stopped using it for spray painting back in the late 1980’s so it’s been overkill for decades.It’s finally on it’s way out, and at the same time our portable Porter Cable Job Boss C3151 has died. Some of my review will directly compare the Makita MAC5200 and the PC Job Boss a...

I haven’t been able to use the drill as much as the driver but I can definitely say that I’m very happy with this set! The impact driver takes NO effort to operate and the size and weight are a HUGE improvement over my standard Ni-Cad DeWalt! The ergonomics are perfect! The belt clip comes in very handy and you can flip the clip to the correct side for normal left-handed people ;) Heck, the charger itself is very impressive! 1hr charge time, cooling fan, maintenance mode, etc. I or...

Okay so my parents are quite wonderful let me just say that. I just graduated college with a degree in MIS and they bought me this planer as a graduation present! Anyways onto the review. So as a back story to backup my review i have a few friends who have the Dewalt 735 and another who has an older Delta couldn’t tell you the model. I have seen the results of these planers and they were all okay, the Delta gave a lot of snip but that is no surprise as it is older. The dewalt does pr...
