Sweet little router.

Sweet little router.

Bought this from the Home Hardware in Nelson for less than the Amazon price! Never happens. Anyways the router. I have had it for about a week and have used it exclusively on hard maple to tune some rabbets and route a long mortise for a piano hinge. First impressions the case seems well made for a tool case, not sure about job site longevity but time will tell. All the parts are packed in foam inside the case although the bearing guide space is too small. Taking the router out of the case...

A Long Enough Cord and I can Log the World

This is a well built electric saw. That fact became evident the time I first picked it up, when I noted it weighs, probably, twice what any of my previous three electric saws weighed. It feels like and appears to be built using the same standards Makita and the other big name companies apply in the construction of their heavy duty, commercial worm drive circular saws. Installing and removing the bar, or adjusting the chain during use, is as simple as it gets. It requires no tools. I was le...

Good alternative to the Festool TS55 REQ

Good alternative to the Festool TS55 REQ

02-09-2016 01:36 PM by TechTeacher04 | 5 comments »

I was asked if I would be interested in building sets for my districts Senior High Musical. The build required breaking down numerous sheets of 1/2 and 1/4” ply. Working alone with a small job saw would be extremely dangerous when cutting the 1/4” luan that is used to skin most of the pieces. A track saw became the safest option for breaking down the sheets accurately and quickly. I had narrowed my search to the Dewalt DWS520K, Festool 55 REQ and Makita SP6000K. The compatibility ...

I recently decided to purchase a new driver/impact for the shop and went with the Makita kit. I was reluctant after reading a lot about the battery life being short, but after thinking about the speed of recharge and the light weight nature of the tools decided that since I am just a hobbyist I could deal with the down time between charges. I placed the batteries on the charger today for the first time to find that neither would take a charge! Sure it felt like a bonus that they included the ...

Makita Track Saw - excellent product at a good price

Makita Track Saw - excellent product at a good price

I’ve had the SP6000 for about a month now and used it a number of times. Mostly, I’ve broken down 3/4” and 18 mm plywood but also done finer work including most of the final cuts for several Baltic Birch shop cabinets. Yesterday I cut 1/2” off the bottom of a painted door. More on this in a bit… Overall, I really like the SP6000. It works as advertised. Plunging action is smooth, cutting with stock blade is surprisingly clean and dust collection is pretty...

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 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...
