So mad I could spit!!!

So mad I could spit!!!

10-05-2014 08:18 PM by PatrickB | 17 comments »

Purchased this tool refurbished. Blades were so dull it wasn’t funny. couldn’t even run balsa wood thru it, LOL. So I bought the Deulen Jig to resharpen the blades because I figured refurbished the blades wouldn’t be very good to start off with so I planned ahead. Just to set this rant up for you folks, I work as a mechanic in a power plant making all kinds of repairs. I’ve been doing this for over 25 years and have had my share of bad fasteners. I did try to plane som...

Good performance but I wouldn't buy it again

Good performance but I wouldn't buy it again

09-25-2014 02:21 PM by JSB | 25 comments »

The planer itself performs very well. It has a heck of a chip ejection system that will allow you to pipe this into a filter bag without the need for a dust collector. I’ve never had an issue with the amount of power it has even at full 13” wide passes. Snipe is horrible out of the box but the way I have my auxiliary bed setup it reduces it significantly. Lots of upgrades and options available on the internet. The reason I wouldn’t buy it again is that it’s a money ...

Mobile storage for less

Mobile storage for less

The DeWalt TSTAK is the yellow and black competitor to the Festool/Tanos Systainer and Bosch/Sortimo L-Boxx. There doesn’t seem to be much of a retail presence at the moment (although Woodcraft seems to have begun carrying them, and highlighted them as a 2014 Fathers Day gift idea). So after a lot of online research, I procured a few of these units (the long-handle I, flat top II, and 2 drawer IV) because I found them to be on average, 30-50% less per unit than it’s competitors....

Good Safety Glasses

Good Safety Glasses

04-12-2014 04:23 AM by Whiskers | 15 comments »

Okay guys, not sure on protocol here, but I searched on here on the subject before I bought these and didn’t really find any useful info. There was a post from someone who bought some expensive motorized safety glasses made for paintball users, but that was a bit more than I wanted to go for. Anyway, I got these today, and played with them a bit, and than posted this review on Amazon, so I’m re-posting it here for anyone that wants to make comment, or find if they are looking fo...

A really nice drill driver set!

A really nice drill driver set!

02-03-2014 03:22 AM by Mainiac Matt | 13 comments »

Though my 15 year old 12 volt Porter Cable cordless drill is still alive and kicking (on a rebuilt battery pack) I really wanted an impact driver. After doing my research and having opportunity to try several different models at work, I was all set to pull the trigger on the white series Makita18 v LI drill driver set. When a good special was going on at HD just before Christmas, I went down to buy the set, but then stumbled across another great price on the DeWalt 20 vmax set. The specs...

Got me a new DeWalt 735X

Got me a new DeWalt 735X

12-05-2013 10:22 PM by Gene Howe | 24 comments »

Freight truck delivered it to day. Instruction manual is good. Got it unpacked and assembled on my stand in less than an hour. Ran the first wood through it at the dimension speed, a rough 4/4 piece of Pin Oak. Amazing finish, even at that speed. I’m sure the slower speed (more cuts per inch) will be just as pretty. Oh, and not a hint of snipe!Attaching the tables was a snap and, they are dead even with the bed. Did I mention….no snipe!The depth of cut indicator and the cutter ...

DeWalt DW734 12 inch thickness planer

DeWalt DW734 12 inch thickness planer

09-21-2013 02:54 PM by Purrmaster | 12 comments »

I’ve had this planer for about 2 years now and have run lots of wood through it. From easy stuff like aspen to nastier stuff like ipe and purpleheart. My overall experience with the tool has been excellent. I don’t know how I got along before I got a planer. The DW734 is the lower end of DeWalt’s “lunchbox” planers. The fancier one being the DW735. This planer has three knives, of the disposable variety. They are “double sided”. When the k...

New Sander

New Sander

09-09-2013 09:33 PM by RussellAP | 3 comments »

I’ve used my new sander on about 15 cutting boards so far. All hardwood. 6 position variable speed. 84.97$ at Amazon Grits, 60, 80, 120, 240. Pros:I like the way it feels in my hand. I like the way it feels on the wood. I love that it stops quickly so I can put it down. Cons:Has a hard time spinning though 60g. I guess the con isn’t fair of me, nothing really spins good with 60G on it. I only use 60G because my planer has a catch on one of the blades and iR...

Precise and Versatile TrackSaw

Precise and Versatile TrackSaw

08-18-2013 01:00 AM by scarpenter002 | 9 comments »

I purchased this Dewalt TrackSaw kit last year for Christmas. I purchased this specifically for larger projects that require sheet goods, such as the New Yankee Miter Saw Bench & Cabinets I am building. (See my blog here.) Shipping:This tool was shipped directly from Dewalt Due to the length of the 102” track, it was shipped via freight. There was some confusion in the shipping process. requiring me to contact the local freight company to schedule delivery. The saw was atta...
