Very satisfied with this saw and it's features

As we all know there are many good miter saws on the market and many models from any one manufacturer. I haven’t used or tested all or any of them, so I can only tell you my experience with this one and the one that it replaced. My last miter saw was a Bosch sliding miter saw with a 12” cut width and with a battery powered laser cut line and work light. I liked this saw, but it had one major weakness, which is that it required a very deep cabinet (or stand if you prefer). My sh...

took lots of abuse, then died, amazon replaced

took lots of abuse, then died, amazon replaced

I wish i could review multiple products in one review, but i’ll post several. I bought a dewalt dw735x off Amazon for $499, plus the stand for $141 more, both shipped with prime. I’ve never used a planer before and had a huge pile of old rough sawn pine and oak. I don’t have a jointer, so i was feeding the boards in and might have been cuped, warped, twisted, ect. I would plane one side, then the other and alternate back and forth. I installed a Wixey WR510 off am...

Amazing battery life and power in lightweight Lithium Ion brushless kit

Amazing battery life and power in lightweight Lithium Ion brushless kit

05-21-2018 08:11 PM by CyberDyneSystems | 14 comments »

I picked up the DEWALT DCK277C2 20V MAX Compact Brushless Drill and Impact Combo Kit on sale at Lowe’s last week. For a little over $150.00 I got two of the latest brushless tools, a charger and two battery packs. Considering this was right next to a $99.00 driver only that was not the new Brushless, it felt like Christmas. We have been using Milwaukee’s M12 in the shop for several years now under very hard use, and have been very impressed with those kits. They are apparently ...

Generic Batteries for Dewalt DCD771 Cordless drill

Generic Batteries for Dewalt DCD771 Cordless drill

04-18-2018 07:43 PM by Blackie_ | 19 comments »

I found a set of Generic batteries that fit the Dewalt DCD771 cordless drill on Amazon. I purchased a couple of them and thus far that are worth their weight in gold. These batteries are larger (4.0ah) than the stock batteries (1.3ah) that come with the kit and work in the same charger that came with the drill kit. They are a bit larger in that they are taller and a tad bit heavier. Masione 20V 4.0Ah Max Lithium Ion Replacement Battery for Dewalt Hammer Drill DCB204 DCB207

Very pleased with the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw

Very pleased with the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw

03-14-2018 03:20 PM by garageking | 13 comments »

After much research including reading the many reviews online for this particular saw, I opted to buy the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw. It came down to that or the Bosch glide model. Since the DeWalt was only 349.00 (Acme tools) I decided against the Bosch. I also made the decision that I didn’t really need the LED light guide (200.00 more for the DWS 780).I sold my old Ridgid non slider quickly on C/L. That saw had served me well but what an upgrade! I love the DeWalt s...

Dewalt 13” thickness planer review

Dewalt 13” thickness planer review

02-09-2018 01:00 AM by Gunnyb4 | 17 comments »

I’ve had this planer for 3 months and I am very satisfied. It’s a huge upgrade from my ryobi planer. I had some really rough mahogany that it planned down with no issues. The ryobi died trying to take off a 1/16” cut. I’ve put a bunch of hard wood through it as well as some cutting board projects. No chatter no sniping. I’ve planes down 3/4” strips to 1/8” thick. I put a review on YouTube you can check out the link below. https://youtu.be/pJLDbD2y7wM

DW735 / DW735X Dust Collection

DW735 / DW735X Dust Collection

12-19-2017 12:32 AM by DakotaHeirlooms | 8 comments »

I recently ordered a DW735X to replace my old DW734. Note the difference between the DW735 and the DW735X is that the DW735X comes with an extra set of blades and the extension tables. The machine has worked as advertised so far. I can’t feel any difference on the finish between the 2 speeds. Snipe is negligible. I think the complaints I’ve read about the blades not lasting is because the user is taking too much material at a time. The only problem that I had with the DW735 is the dust col...

 My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

11-18-2017 06:21 PM by richardchaos | 6 comments »

last week I got my DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud I ordered via Amazon as it was $25 cheaper that Lowes. It came as you see even with a wrench (Not pictured) to change out padded head. Keep in mind I have been using an very old DeWalt drill with a Plastic Sanding disk attachment for the last few years. I would regularly set up my desalt drill with sanding disc crush it in my vise and use it as a poor mans Stationary Disk Sander… If any of you have se...

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

10-18-2017 06:55 PM by PPK | 7 comments »

It’s about time somebody posts a review… I’ll take up the baton… I was thinking about all the tools in my shop, and the one that stands out as earning its money back many times is my chopsaw. I bought this saw quite a long time ago (I was in high school, to be honest). To date, I have only ever adjusted the fence a tiny bit, and swapped out dull blades. The saw has served me well and maintained power and accuracy to this day. The DW703 is the saw I own (the firs...

Mixed Feelings

Mixed Feelings

02-24-2017 01:38 PM by Dustin | 9 comments »

So I recently order the DeWalt 734 planer and DW7350 planer stand (want to use the planer more before reviewing, but great initial impressions). I got the stand last night and began assembly, and wanted to share my thoughts. PROS:-Excellently packaged. There is no room for jostling or movement of any kind, and everything was easy to find straight out of the box.-Sturdy (...ish. more below). The stand feels substantial, all bolt holes lined up well, and it claims a max load of 300 lbs, w...
