Amazing Saw For The Price........ Minus the Insert Plate

Amazing Saw For The Price........ Minus the Insert Plate

857 days ago by WoodyPete | 8 comments »

This is an amazing saw for the price in my opinion. The reviews written by ‘LafayetteJack’ & ‘bobdobbs’ are dead on with my assessment of this saw. I’m just adding my 2 cents to the review of the product…...... I have no financial interest in Porter Cable or Lowes, and my woodworking experience is beginner – intermediate and is simply my hobby. I purchased this saw for many of the same reasons stated by the other reviewers: 1) This is the ...

PORTER-CABLE 15-Amp 10" Table Saw PCB220 Job site saw

911 days ago by AKMECHANIC | 10 comments »

I purchased this saw at Lowes for $329 a week ago. It has great reviews on Lowes website and a few here. I will keep this simple. I was very dissatisfied with my purchase and will be taking it back. I only used it for two days. Negatives 1. The table work surface is not flat. I posted a picture of that. The left side of the table outboard of the miter slot slopes off almost 1/8”. 2. The fence lock handle when released gets in the way of the work piece making it very difficult to set u...

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

991 days ago by WoodworkGuy | 3 comments »

My wife has been interested in woodworking for awhile, but didn’t want to mess with the “big machines,” but was interested in scroll sawing. The DeWalt and Hawk units were too expensive for a “trial” period, so we looked for a moderately-priced unit. Reading the great reviews on LJ led us to take a chance on the P-C PCB370SS. Fortunately, we were lucky and got a good one. It does a great job with a little vibration and I agree the dust removal and attached...

Loving this sander

1033 days ago by sgtq | 8 comments »

I purchased this belt sander from a big box store the other day for 170.00 plus 10% off for my military discount. I am fairly new to woodworking (about 1 year) so I dont know alot of terms but I’ll try and get this review done in laymans terms.. To start I am loving this sander, Its my first one so I may be biased but it has really opened up what I can accomplish in my small shop. So heres my review based on things I thought were important Packing and Setup: Inside the box was the...

Overall great first compressor but with a design flaw

Overall great first compressor but with a design flaw

1050 days ago by Eric_S | 18 comments »

I purchased this from Home Depot for $199 which includes the compressor, 10ft of pretty flexible hose, and a nice 16ga Porter Cable Finishing Nailer that takes straight 16ga nails up to 2 1/2” and operates from 75-120psi. The finish nailer alone is worth around $160. This was my first compressor I’ve purchased. Overall for a first small use compressor I really liked it at first. The pressure builds up very quickly. Gets to 150psi in about 3 min or so. I’ve heard it i...

http://www.ereplacementparts.com/porter-cable-pc750ag-type-amp-small-angle-grinder-parts-c-129_1811_16568.html (wondering if the bearing shouldn’t just be lubed or replaced) I had a Ryobi 5 amp last me about six or seven years. I do sporadic fabrication, welding and kart restoration; and use it heavily when I do, but then not for months or even years in between. The Ryobi (HmDepot, $40) blew up yesterday, blasted a pinhole in the case w/ a tiny fire blowing thru (burnt winding.) ...

It's a huge upgrade from what I had

It's a huge upgrade from what I had

1100 days ago by ic3ss | 8 comments »

I had this craftsman 5/8hp router that I inherited from my father-in-law a while ago. It was all plastic and really light. I used it to do some decorative inlay work, and for that it was ok. I did find that it’s light weight made it easy to make unintended movements when doing light touch work. I figured a heavier router would help. I decided on the 895PK because it comes with a height adjustment crank that goes through a table insert to engage the elevation adjuster on the fixed bas...

Blade Alignment (front to back)

Blade Alignment (front to back)

1148 days ago by jerrells | 3 comments »

After having this saw for about 9 months, and using the heck out of it, I have noticed that the blade is not at 90- degrees – front to back. That means is is leaning back about 1/32 of an inch on the top side vs. the bottom (at the table). This was most noticable yesterday when cutting a 3-D compound cut and the cutouts were different size one side vs. the other. Now the almost useless product manual is of not help with this problem and previous attempts with Porter Cable have also been...
