Craftsman Professional 22124 10" table saw

Craftsman Professional 22124 10" table saw

12-20-2008 03:49 PM by Frostyjo | 23 comments »

After months of reading reviews and a little groveling at home, I finally got myself a new table saw. I decided on the Craftsman 22124. One of the first things I noticed while I was researching was the Craftsman, Delta and Steel City hybrid saws appear to be identical. The only noted differences are the fences offered, and the Delta comes with extension legs. The shipping label on the box my saw came in was labeled ‘Steel City’ and had the model number of their hybrid (with a Craftsman la...

Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

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...

This is my personal review of my Craftsman saw listed above. I work out of a two car garage that I need to park two vehicles in, so I need a saw that is light and portable, and that leaves a small footprint when stored. About a year ago I literally burned up my old Rockwell tablesaw and went on the hunt for a new one. Brands like Bosch, Makita and Rigid weren’t readily available to see, touch and examine…and Sears had this one “on sale” for $350.00. There was a Dewalt ...

Previous review by Bobthebuilderinmichigan and good info from BoardRunner are here:http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/1225After a few months and a couple of projects with this saw, here are some observations ;In short, the 351-218330 seems a very good table saw for the price, with most everything I needed included. The rip fence is very good for a saw in this price class, and with a good after-market miter gauge (I caught the Incra 120 on sale) and an upgraded blade, performance is very good. ...

The spec’s are:Diameter: 3 in. Type: Circular saw Motor:Amps: 2.8 Speed Range RPM: 2800 rpm Product Overview:Main Handle Grip: Ergonomic soft grip Handles:Main Position: 3-position I bought this saw for rough cutting plywood sheets instead of having to lug out my full size saw. Because I seldom do this task, I didn’t want to buy a battery powered saw or one that was twice as expensive. The barrel grip is comfortable to hold but is a little awkward when reac...

Hi lumber jocks!! I got some great news!! I got a used 12’’ bandsaw!! I found it on cregslist for $85 great deal don’t you think.

And has a powerful 1/2 hp motor. The fence is very nice, but it appears that the table is mounted backwards because the adjustment ha...

Darn good product

Darn good product

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...

Craftsman 12" Bandsaw

Craftsman 12" Bandsaw

02-29-2008 11:50 PM by DennisC | 16 comments »

This is everything you could expect from 12” saw. It is manufactured by the same factory that makes Rikon saws. It has good power, 3/4 horse; capacity, 7”; and can be adjusted to cut pretty straight. The guides work nice and can be adjusted up tight. The factory fence is junk. I built one to use with the factory front rail and it works just fine. I’m using a 1/2” 3 tooth blade and have my fence set for about 1/8” drift from front to back.The trunion can be adju...

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

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...
