DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

2201 days ago by tooldad | 44 comments »

I have had the opportunity to use about 4 different planers. I owned a Ryobi 12.5” for about a year and returned it because rollers wouldn’t work, They bought a Ridgid and it lasted about 3 months, same problem (Ryobi, Ridgid, and Milwaukee are same corp) Finally I bucked up and bought Dewalt after seeing this at the wood show. However I am not the average weekend woodworker being a shop teacher so minimum duty tools just dont’ cut it for me. I also had a Delta 12.5”...

Here comes the DeWalt Track Saw - Lookout Festool

Here comes the DeWalt Track Saw - Lookout Festool

1858 days ago by GaryK | 30 comments »

After receiving the Dewalt Track Saw I recently won in the Winter 2009 CompetitionI tried it out so that I could write a review for it. The first thing I wanted to point out that separates it from the Festool Version isthat you can set it on it’s side and cut parallel to the surface it’s sitting on.Look at the second picture and you can see the two black stripes. Those are slipperymaterial making it move smoothly. Great for trimming the bottom of a door in place. It has a ni...

Great cordless drill for an awesome price

Great cordless drill for an awesome price

1602 days ago by mnorusis | 9 comments »

I never go shopping on Black Friday…ever. Except that on Thursday morning I saw Home Depot advertising this Dewal drill for $99 (regularly $199). So I dragged my butt out of bed at 6am to go buy one. I have been using an older B&D corded drill that was given to me by a family member. It ceratinly gets the job done, but I have issues with non-hex bits slipping when using larger bits as well as some other minor issues. When I saw this drill for $99, including the drill, case,...

Two Palm Routers Will Enter One Will Leave!

Two Palm Routers Will Enter One Will Leave!

782 days ago by Brad | 17 comments »

So awhile back I knew the time had come to get into the palm router game. I know some woodworkers are loyal to one brand and their shop is a “Jet Shop” or a “Powermatic” shop. My tool collection seems to be pretty varied although I have exiled ALL that is Harbor Freight! So when I started my research on palm routers there seemed to be two major contenders for the title. The Bosch Colt found for about $90 as a stand alone or $180 as a complete package with lots of ac...

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

2098 days ago by Timber4fun | 4 comments »

Introduction – I have a small Porter-Cable air compressor and finish nailer. If you are like me, it doesn’t take long to get tired of hauling the air compressor, nailer, hose, nails, oil, and everything else that goes along with finish nailing, even when the compressor is small. Don’t get me wrong, I like my air compressor very much. However, it can be very inconvenient when you need to fire off just a few nails. In many similar cases, I’ll look for a workaround rather than haul out all m...

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

1757 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 !

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

2241 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 19 comments »

Recently purchased the DeWalt model 735 13 inch two speed planer and stand. Right out of the box the planer had very few parts to assemble. The instructions were very easy to understand. I had to make a few minor adjustments in the height adjustment scale, but the preset stops were right on the money. Gave the planer a real test with some cedar boards that were up to 10 inches in width and the machine did great. I planed them down close to 3/4 inch thick and then switched to the slower ...

This is the only scroll saw I have ever had so I nothing to compare it to. When researching and looking over many others I don’t think I could have done any better in my choice.This is the only scroll saw that DeWalt makes and with one this good it’s all they need With a throat depth of 20”, it beats out most others on just that. It is heavy at 56 pounds! Very well built.The table tilts 45 degrees both left and right. Tension, power switch and variable speed control ar...

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

2100 days ago by toolman | 4 comments »

As a woodworker, you need to produce a nice surface for a variety of reasons. Knowing this, we decided to test an orbital sander for this power tool review. We found a Dewalt Random Orbital Sander on sale as a factory reconditioned tool, so we thought we would give this a test. Our first impression was good. If you have been following our other reviews you know we love carrying cases, and the Dewalt random orbital sander has its own case. There is even room to pack some sand discs, alo...
