Tool Review, Craftsman Contractor Saw 113.298763, Made 1996. I’ve had this saw since 2002, so I figure I’ve used it enough to write a fairly balanced and accurate review. I bought the saw from a good friend who was the first owner. I paid $225 for the saw, three Craftsman blades and some push sticks.He used it primarily to remodel his basement, and he did one heck of a job. I helped him quite a bit and learned a lot. This is my second table saw. My first was a direct drive Craftsman tha...

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

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

144 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...

New Craftsman 10" Table Saw 21833

New Craftsman 10" Table Saw 21833

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...

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...

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

After 5 years it's still kicking

After 5 years it's still kicking

I own only two newer craftsman tools. One is a 4” grinder that has lasted me 4 years after makita’s and dewalts burned out after about a year each. Go figure. And this little compressor that has been stellar..I’ve been wanting to give this little compressor it’s due for some time now as I’ve had tons of experience with it. .This compressor is now rated at 1 hp. Mine was labeled 1.5 hp. I think though that they are the same item. The hp must have been reassessed o...

Worst money I ever spent.

Worst money I ever spent.

I know the picture is of a grizzly item but they are both the same thing. All of the parts are interchangeable. So what did I like best about this item…selling it for a loss. At least the guy who bought helped drag the piece of stuff out of the basement. I told him it was finicky about power and he would need a cooling fan for the motor. I think the longest it ran before the motor tripped on an overheat was about 15 minutes and I was hardly sanding the wood.This has to be the most disap...

Some issues/ Gloat

Some issues/ Gloat

I just picked this up yesterday. I have been previously using the 10” version but have been looking to upgrade to a 14”. I have been very happy with the 10” and think everything about the fit, finish and performance is great (within its 1/3 hp capacity). I been watching craigslist (Chicago area) and good 14” saw at a good price have been fairly elusive. I stumbled upon searsoutlet.com which lists all their returns/refurbs/open box items. They had this one at 279.00 plu...

Decent Set for occasional use

Decent Set for occasional use

440 days ago by Bill1974 | 2 comments »

I have had this set for a couple of years and used maybe a quarter of the bits. Like other have said not the best way to spend money, it’s better to buy individual or small sets of high quality bits. I realized this after buying some freud, whiteside, and amana bits. The case that the bits come in is nice and it hangs on the wall nicely and look impressive. The downside is the bits are a challenge to get out, work gloves and taking the case off the wall are generally necessary. T...

Craftman's newest 14" bandsaw

Craftman's newest 14" bandsaw

-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...
