New Craftsman 10" Table Saw 21833

New Craftsman 10" Table Saw 21833

137 days ago by steve_in_ohio | 12 comments »

I got this saw last weekend and I finally had a chance to put it together and I do have to say I am excited. I had an old craftsman little contractor saw with the weird miter slots and the underpowered motor, which wasn’t very accurate. This new saw, (after spending 6 hours assembling and aligning it, and help from 3 people to flip it over) work amazing. I get nice clean and accurate cuts, (with a new blade and not the one that it came with). The fence is solid and accurate with the ta...

I wish I had this years ago

I wish I had this years ago

My wife got me a craftsman impact driver for my birthday a while back. I know some people like to pick on craftsman, but I already had their cordless drill and I wanted to stick with interchangeable batteries. I use the 19.2V Ni-Cds. I know a lot of people swear by the Li-Ion, but those cost a lot more money. Now I’ll be able to upgrade in the future if I want, but based on my experience so far, I have no plans to do so. This thing is AWESOME! I can drive a 3” screw into a...

Grinding wheel dresser

Grinding wheel dresser

1522 days ago by hairy | 11 comments »

Did you ever do something dumb, then follow up with something stupid? OK, I’m the only one. Anyway,I wore a big groove down the center of my grinder that I sharpen lathe tools on. Then I went to Sears and got this. This is a good idea, it just doesn’t do a good job. The wheel I was dressing is 120 grit aluminum oxide. I assumed this would be a harder material. I quickly wore this out and still had a groove. The instructions did say the plastic would wear down as you use it. Th...

A+ Router

A+ Router

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

Craftsman 4-1/8" Bench Top Jointer/Planer Set UP

Craftsman 4-1/8" Bench Top Jointer/Planer Set UP

135 days ago by ca8920 | 5 comments »

I have a garage shop and a limited amount of space. I needed a jointer/planer for some upcoming projects so I chose the Craftsman 4-18” Bench Top Jointer/Planer. Not the best tool out there but not the worst. The little jointer works well and does a decent job once set up and shimmed. My complaint, the setup. While researching this tool I found multiple comments/complaints that the fence is too far from the blades, causing a small protrusion of wood on the work piece when you r...

Little to no runout in a compact heavy duty vintage package. It buffs good at high speed. It also has been my primary wood drill press for about a year now. :-D

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...

Good starter table.

Good starter table.

2325 days ago 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 ...

A solid, quiet performer

Update 2/3/13- Still like the product. Sears sells tons of accessories at reasonable prices. I still haven’t found any downside to the vacuum. Highly rocommend## About 4 years ago, I bought a Shopvac from Lowes. I cant remember the specs, but it was 10 gallons or so and supposedly 4-5 HP. They were selling them on Black Friday for $40. I actually like the vacuum pretty well and felt it was a good value. So when Lowes had the same vac on sale the following year, I bought a...

Screw-Outs Don't Work

Screw-Outs Don't Work

http://www.craftsman.com/shc/s/p_10155_12602_00952154000P?keyword=52154&sLevel=0 LOML saw Bob Vs commercial and bought me a set a couple years ago. Today, 1/2” wood screws holding cabinet door hinges that have stripped out phillips heads. Guess what, Bob V can kiss my A$$! These things are supposed to bite into the screw and back it out, all they do is spin in the stripped head. Even tried an impact driver and nothing! This system won’t let me give -5 stars or I would!
