Not what they said it was!

This drill Does not perform the way they said it would. I give them 5 stars on the weight, it is very light, half the weight of a Dewalt drill. The first three weeks the battery would last 4 or 5 hours. Keep in mind I am working this drill 8 hours or more a day. A month later the battery life dropped dramatically. I am changing batteries 5 or 6 times a day. The torque is half of the Dewalt drill, even though the Dewalt is heaver and cost more I think it is worth the money. I was lucky eno...

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

After putting up with Ni-cad battery’s for the last 20 years it is a pleasure to finally own an 18 volt Lithium Ion drill/ driver. I chose the Makita LXFDO1Cw on Wood magazine’s review. The drill feels comfortable in your hand ergonomic and all that Fahrvergn├╝gen jazz. The motor is full of torque and has plenty of power. Recharge time was one of the shortest compared to its piers it its class according to Wood magazine but I have nothing to compare it to I am still living in Ni-c...

How to clean your shop(and other places too)I have the blessed opportunity to use a very good friend’s shop whenever I want. There are two really good things about working there: 1) He has sattellite radio piped in. That means I can listen to 50’s music all day long. He was listening to it before I got there so there’s no battle on what station to set it on. He also likes gospel music from time to time which I also enjoy. A great environment, and a very gracious friend to...

Makita RT0700C Roumer (Router/Trimmer)

Makita RT0700C Roumer (Router/Trimmer)

So this is my first power tool review, so I will be doing on my Christmas gift I got which was the Makita RT0700C router (Picture 1). On first looks the router looks to be a cross between a trimmer and fixed base router. The router looks and feels to be very well built with an aluminium base and main body. The top of the motor is plastic with the power lead come out of the side, which makes it easy to turn upside down and change bits over. The motor on this tool is a 710 watt electronic va...

I got this sander just two days ago but I already put quite few hours on it.Like every one else I have multiple sanders. I am doing project for the church and no sander that I already have could have been used to do what I need to do except a 1/4 sheet orbital sander that I rarely use because it does not do a very good job.A 1/2 sheet sander is too big, too heavy and too cumbersome. This sander is 1/3 sheet.For what I have to do it is the perfect size. It perform very well yet it is light a...
