Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

02-29-2008 05:47 PM by Dadoo | 12 comments »

I bought this tool off of Ebay a couple years ago and although the price was very good (less than $60.00) this tool just don’t “cut it” with me. First off, it’s very loud. Loud enough that you need hearing protection. Secondly, it creates a ton of dust and blows it all around, requiring respiratory protection, a shop vac, mop and bucket, as well as a shower when you’re done. So here’s some more pros and cons that I have found. PROS Plunge router base, c...

Sometimes, Smaller is Better!

Sometimes, Smaller is Better!

02-29-2008 09:09 PM by Hawgnutz | 4 comments »

I don’t cut crown molding or much of anything with my miter saw except picture frames. I also have to use a crutch to walk, so any tool I can carry with one hand is attractive to me. I do most of my cutting outside, so this “little” miter saw, that can be easily carried with one hand, is great! I sold my 10” miter saw because it was so hard for me to carry that I just got tired of using it. This Craftsman only weighs about 16 pounds and has a carrying handle unde...

Lasers aren't as good as Austin Powers thought.

Lasers aren't as good as Austin Powers thought.

02-29-2008 10:58 PM by kshipp | 10 comments »

I got this laser drill attachment with my drill press that I reviewed here. I’m really happy with the drill press but this laser sight is quite useless. Contrary to its name, it does not actually drill holes with a laser. Now that would be cool. This mounts on the column of the drill press and projects two laser lines which are supposed to cross at the exact point where the bit will touch the material to be drilled. It is, in fact, possible to set up the laser to do this. The adju...

Good stand with innovative features.

Good stand with innovative features.

02-29-2008 11:30 PM by kshipp | 1 comment »

This is a very versatile stand for the price. My previous stand was basically a metal tee that tipped easily and had some cheap plastic for rollers. This stand is heavy enough (and has a wide-enough stance) to not tip over but is still easy to store and move. For storage it folds flat and can hang on the wall. The height is adjustable from 27” to 44” and there is a positive stop at the top so you don’t have to worry about lifting it right out of the tube. The locking m...

Darn good product

Darn good product

02-29-2008 11:32 PM by Woodshopfreak | 10 comments »

This bandsaw is great. It allows me to cut curves, very thin peices, and resaw, and its only $150, thats right only $150. It is a great buy for the money. If your wanting one and you don’t want to spend a fortune for a huge bandsaw, then this is a nice substitute. It has about a 5 inch resaw compacity, which isn’t the best but alot better than the compeditors benchtop models. You would think for $150 it would be a plastic pile of junk, well that is certainly not the case here. The...

Good starter table.

Good starter table.

03-01-2008 02:02 AM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got this router table as part of a combo with this router. My previous router table was all molded plastic and had a significant bow in the table making it useless. This table is nice for a starter table but it doesn’t have a lot of the high end features. The fence is very adjustable with the ability to move the out feed side independently and also slide the sides to cover the bit hole. There is a 2 1/2” dust extraction port on the back which I haven’t used because the ...

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

03-01-2008 07:52 AM by Splinters | 9 comments »

I have always liked Craftsman brand tools..so when it came time to look for a table saw that is where I went. I caught this saw on sale and was able to spread the payments interest free over a year. Sale price was around $950. It lists for around $1100. The only thing I have added to it is a movable base. It is a very solid machine and took four guys to unload it from the trailer. It is a very strong smooth running saw. It came with a Biesemeyer fence system, which is a real gem. Nice h...
