Best used Tool I ever purchased

Best used Tool I ever purchased

117 days ago by steve | 12 comments »

I got this Ryobi 1300 Planer 3 years ago…I took a shot at it for $100 used, but actually almost new…the owner passed away just after buying it, and his wife sold it to me, I would have given her more, but that’s all she wanted. I have the box, receipt, EVERYTHING!I’ve had a Delta, and and an ole General…I gotta give this Ryobi the props though…and it is the ONLY Ryobi tool I own…I am not a big fan, but this older 1300 is a great design. The lock is...

Probably the best $40 I've spent on a tool

Probably the best $40 I've spent on a tool

Hey fellow LJ’s, I found myself in need of a new jigsaw as the old Skil I had been using was just impossible to dial in to make a perfect 90ยบ cut. No matter what I tried, I there would always be an angle on the inside of the cut piece and the metal blade guide started to rust, marking up my stock. I did a little research on some low priced saws (I go low price with pretty much everything) and ended up with the Ryobi JS481L 4.8 amp VS jigsaw. Overall:Very powerful, excellent cu...

A pleasant surprise from the Home Depot

A pleasant surprise from the Home Depot

It all started when my father in law gave his Craftsman radial arm saw. I am am his favorite son in law after all (my wife is an only child.) Well I soon found out that life is too short to mess with with a Craftsman radial arm saw. When I finally got the thing aligned and running the blade would slow down and jam in the wood and it would be out of alignment all over again. Not wishing to inflict this pain on another human being I took the dang thing to the dump. The man working there seemed...

I have had this biscuit joiner the (JM82) for a few months and it has worked well. It’s easy to adjust and handle. It seem a little more powerful than a porta cable one that I had used, it get up to full speed quicker than the PC. The case is nice, but the bag location is a little awkward. It would also be nice if there were a better way to store extra biscuits in it. Additionally the cord gets bent pretty tight when put in the case, just past the strain relief on the unit, I cu...

No Batteries Required

No Batteries Required

473 days ago by cutworm | 10 comments »

If you have power handy in your shop this little drill is great. The clutch has 24 settings for driving screws and it has good torque for driving at slow speeds. I have power right at my bench so it works great for me. About the only thing it lacks is a high-low speed switch. I paid $20 for a reconditioned one and will be using it most of the time instead of my battery drill. Best of all – No more dead batteries in the middle of a project.

Great Tool and Even Better Customer Service From Home Depot

Great Tool and Even Better Customer Service From Home Depot

Wife purchased an additional smoke detector and Carbon Monoxide Detector today, which required me to get out the drill. I received this as a gift last year after my prior drill of 10 years died. I really do not need much more than this as I really do not have a need. So it meets my needs. It is comfortable to hold and use, the battery life is very good, as is the ability to perform as a drill and driver and general uses as a flap sander, wire wheel distress-er etc . I use it in the sho...

Excellent Belt Sander for Moderate Use

Excellent Belt Sander for Moderate Use

663 days ago by HAJIII | 13 comments »

I debated for quite a while before purchasing this sander because of the reviews complaining of drive belt problems, power cord issues, and difficulties in sanding belt alignment. I have had the sander for six months and had none of these problems. I even bought spare drive belts just in case, but I have had no problems with the drive belt. I was concerned with the sanding belt alignment problems mentioned but I found the adjustment quick and reliable. I can switch from one sanding grit to ...

An awesome sander at an awesome price.

An awesome sander at an awesome price.

Now I am not one to have much faith in Ryobi tools at all, but when I saw this sander unopened at a yard sale for $25 I just had to pick it up. I am sure happy I did. This sander is great for sanding any types of curves weather inside or out. The sander comes with 5 different sized rubber fittings that hold sleeves up to 2 inches. The quill stroke on this machine is 5/8”. I was surprised and pleased to find a heavy cast iron top on a Ryobi tool. This thing also has LOTS OF POWER. I ran ...

Ryobi straight router bits, set of 4, suck

Ryobi straight router bits, set of 4, suck

698 days ago by CplSteel | 37 comments »

I think cheap tools have a place. I have 2 very nice kitchen knives and a few crap knives; i use them for different things. So i needed a bit to rough out a curve and using a router on a swing arm seemed to make sense, so I picked up these bits. I expected them to leave a rough edge, I expected them to be less than scary sharp, I expected them to do their job just not to be great about it. I was wrong, turns out red oak beat that bit silly. By my math, this bit made 4 36” passes ...
