So much more than a "laminate trimmer on steriods".

The DeWalt Stacked Bargain...

Out of the box, I'm thrilled

Out of the box, I'm thrilled

1257 days ago by Todd Clare | 13 comments »

When I began pondering the purchase of a thickness planer, I researched Fine Woodworking and saw that the DEwalt 735 was rated the best. My plans were to purchase this model when I decided it was time. As many of you likely read, I was drawn in by the helical head Steel City, and had some issues with it out of the box. As I said in that review, maybe I got a one-off lemon, but nonetheless, I wasn’t that impressed. Fortunately Chris from Highland Woodworking, where I ordered the ...

DEWALT  12 In. 96T Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Thin Curf Saw Blade

DEWALT 12 In. 96T Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Thin Curf Saw Blade

1270 days ago by wseand | 13 comments »

I was looking around for a new blade for my DW718 SCMS and I was wondering around Lowes and spotted this beaut. So I took it home and put it to the test. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was when cutting through the wood. It leaves an incredibly smooth and clean cut. It cut perfect miters on hard maple in the first pass. It says it cuts nonferrous metals so I cut some copper tubing and it made a nice smooth cut leaving little tear out but you better wear eye protection. Then ...

Planer..the only one I will ever own

Planer..the only one I will ever own

828 days ago by GrandsonOfRue | 23 comments »

This planer is awesome. It is pricey, but I personally feel you get good value for it. I have seen it for $599 – $699. I paid $599. So shop around. This sucker is a beast. I mean heavy. For my shop it sits on a rolling cart that is much larger than the planer. I saw recently a guy who built a portable stand for his and it was no much wider than the planer itself. I cringed at the thought of it catching on a wood chip and falling over. I assure you once it starts falling there is n...

Ergonomics Make this Router Stand out in the Crowd

Ergonomics Make this Router Stand out in the Crowd

I have read the reviews for all brands of routers that appeared in woodworking magazines or online. I have used Hitachi, Freud, Craftsman, Dewalt, and other routers. I have carefully inspected Porter Cable, Ridgid, and Makita. The fixed base is lower profile than any other 2-1/4 hp router on the market. This low center of gravity helps when forming an edge. The plunge base action is “gorgeous” as described by a fine homebuilding magazine review. The router tied for 1st place with ...

I purchased the Dewalt 734 today from Lowes for $399.00. I have been looking at both the Ridgid 13” and this Dewalt. I have it fiqured out that these are pretty much equal products. Why did I choose Dewalt ? Simply because I was worried about the ability to find replacement knives for the Ridgid. I also like the manual lock on the Dewalt and I am also a little po’d with Home Depot because they would not honor their on- line price in the store which was 369.00 vs. 399.00. (Wi...

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

1838 days ago by Doug | 9 comments »

I got this saw from a local news paper ad, I have had a number of craftsman radial arm saws, didn’t really care for them to much, kinda cheap made !, But now mine were newer saws and i know the old ones were real nice. This one was built in 1960-1962. It wasn’t in the best shape in the world so i dissmantled it and restored it, motor bearings,wires,switches,ETC. Avery nice saw, very acurate !

Old Reliable

Old Reliable

This review is for a saw that I’ve been using almost daily for a little over four years now. I purchased the DW718 after using the DW708 for over nine years. Out of the box I noticed that the base had grown a bit, but still had 110 degrees of miter settings and the same simple to adjust detent plate. I found this to be a plus after witnessing what some of my peers experienced while reclibrating some of the other manufactures mitersaws. From my experience the only time I’ve had an...

Well by now I’m sure you’ve many things about this router. Probably more good than bad. I can say without reservation all the good things are true.I bought it about a week ago (mail order) but have been sick and haven’t had a chance to use it until this weekend.The project I cut it’s teeth on is a white oak sofa table. So far I have only done round overs, slot cutting and running a trim bit. It has performed flawlessly! The variable speed is easily adjusted on the fly....
