Craftsman 21802 (10 in. Table Saw with Stand)

Craftsman 21802 (10 in. Table Saw with Stand)

10-13-2009 03:56 PM by michaeldmunro | 10 comments »

This being my first product review, I might miss some obvious things, but I’ll give it my best shot. At around $100, the Craftsman 21802 10 in. Table Saw is a good beginner’s saw. This is also my first table saw. I had no expectations other than when I was done I would be able to cut wood with it! The assembly was easy and I had it together in about 30 minutes or so. All the parts for the stands fit nice and everything lined up where it was supposed to. After assembly I set ...

Great Mortiser - Wow, makes square holes!

Great Mortiser - Wow, makes square holes!

02-06-2011 12:23 AM by Terry Burks | 12 comments »

After recently completing a project that required creating more than 20 mortises using a drill press and chisels, I decided it was time to seriously consider getting a bench top mortiser. After reading a number of reviews online, I visited my local Woodcraft store and looked at the Jet, Delta and Shop Fox models they had on display. Based on what I saw, discussions with the salesman, features and price, I decided that the Delta was the best they had. I was told that upcoming sales would br...

Craftsman 10” Table Saw with Laser Trac® (21807) (In Canada – CRAFTSMAN®/MD Limited Edition 10’’ Table Saw with Stand – item 097 827 835 10) I’ve been meaning to type this up for a while but haven’t gotten around to it. After seeing another forum inquiring about a problem with the tablesaw I decided to stop slacking and get this done. The saw itself has decent power and will cut through 2 inches of hard maple without too much trouble as long as you go slow. It co...

Craftsman Planer...not as good as I hoped.

Craftsman Planer...not as good as I hoped.

12-16-2011 03:42 AM by RibsBrisket4me | 26 comments »

Well, I guess I got what I paid for. FYI, this is the 3rd planer I have owned over the past 15 years. The first was the best, the venerable Dewalt 733. I should have kept that tool forever. Bought on sale for $299 in the 1990’s, it was a workhorse and I had it tuned to miminal to no snipe. But when 3 knife planers came out, I sold it and “upgraded” to a RECONDITIONED Ridgid 3 knife. It was “okay” but the cutter head elevation crank was a bit tight. Planed pr...

Great little Jointer

Great little Jointer

I decided last night that I could not live without a jointer for a gate project I am working on but did not want to spend the money on a larger jointer as my wife just started her own business last year so I did some searching and came across this little guy on sale at sears. Regularly $209 but on sale online for $169.57 right now. got it home and set up was a breeze. It was also easy to get the granite fences nice and true.Within about 45 minutes I was jointing boards and so far it works ...

Craftsman 16 inch Scroll Saw Review

Craftsman 16 inch Scroll Saw Review

04-19-2012 07:03 PM by Daris | 3 comments »

For my birthday recently my wife purchased me a scroll saw. (That’s right fella’s she’s all mine) Having never owned a scroll saw, and quickly realizing that I’m a novice to this tool; I’ll do my best to give an honest review of this tool. But… Before I can start I have to give a little insight to my scroll saw bias’. I’ve been doing the “woodworking thing”, for a few years now and I’ve always thought I had all of the tools that I needed. I also have always had two opinions when it c...

Craftsman Automatic Power Switch

Craftsman Automatic Power Switch

04-20-2011 06:52 AM by David Grimes | 10 comments »

I just purchased this item recently, but it works exactly as described and is a problem solver for me. I searched Lumberjocks to see if there was already a review. I see many references to this product, but no review. I did not know that this product even existed until about a week ago, so maybe my review will make it easier to find for future new Lumber Jocks. I found mine for $24.99 at the local Sears store. I used a $10 off coupon and so actually paid 14.99 plus tax. This grey pl...

I bought a Craftsman 14” BAS350 bandsaw a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to get a 14” bandsaw for my workshop. I am basically an aspiring hobbyist that likes to make furniture and other woodcraft. I don’t own a table saw nor do I plan to, so a bandsaw seemed like the next logical tool to add to the suite of tools. So after doing the standard bandsaw research I settled on the Craftsman. I picked the Craftsman for a few reasons:1. They had one in stock at the local Sear...

Great Craigslist find, better options at retail price

Great Craigslist find, better options at retail price

05-15-2012 12:15 PM by lumberjoe | 11 comments »

Note this 4 star rating is not for a brand new 21758. With that said, this is actually a decent planer. I’ve been doing a lot of research lately and came across this one on craigslist. Actually I came across a Ridgid R4331 that I went to look at. The gentleman was extremely knowledgeable and had a very impressive and immaculate shop. He had the craftsman for sale as well and was only asking 100.00 with a brand new set of knives installed, and a set in the package still. He was kind enou...

Craftman's newest 14" bandsaw

Craftman's newest 14" bandsaw

04-30-2013 03:16 AM by jchomme | 16 comments »

-My rating is mostly based on Price and build Quality. -These are first impressions only. I will report back after a while of use. -Notice from the pics, the similarities of the Professional model and regular. I’ve basically been out of the woodworking game this whole past year. I restored a Belsaw-Foley planer (craftsman branded) and not much else. Unfortunately, I sold the planer for peanuts, and I ended up selling a bunch of my other tools. I actually have done more to...
