Where Purchased: LowesPurchase Price: $149.00 Let me start off by saying that this is the first biscuit joiner that I’ve owned so I can’t compare it to other models but I will give you my honest take on the model. Specs:It has selectable depth settings for #0, #10, #20 and “M”. The M setting is for future use, what ever that means but at the M setting, you get the full depth of cut. The height is very easy to set by loosening a thumb screw and turning a knob ...

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

07-20-2008 07:30 AM 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...

Great Cordless Circular Saw!

Great Cordless Circular Saw!

02-29-2008 07:26 AM by Hawgnutz | 3 comments »

When my whimpy Craftsman cordless circular saw finally gave up the ghost, I replced it with this one by Dewalt. So far it has been a fantastic buy. The XRP battery quikly takes a full charge in under an hour and gives you about 6 or 8 hours of steady cutting. I first used this in framing a loafing shed for our horses and it performed flawlesy, cutting treated 4×4s, plywood, and treated and untreated 2×4s. It comes with a case that has a mounting post complete with a clip for rep...

Dewalt DC390 6 1/2" Circular Saw w/ 18v XRP battery

Dewalt DC390 6 1/2" Circular Saw w/ 18v XRP battery

04-16-2010 11:39 PM by Derek Lyons | 4 comments »

I don’t recall how much I paid for this saw as I bought it on a Black Friday sale from Lowe’s last year, and it’s sat over the winter. I finally got to drag it out to trim some 3/4” OSB for my workshop remodel, and wow. I was concerned about how much pressure I’d have to use to get through the material – but I was halfway done with the cut before I realized I was exerting almost no pressure at all. It’s been zipping through the cuts like a sports c...

Planer..the only one I will ever own

Planer..the only one I will ever own

04-03-2012 02:18 AM 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...

I love this router so much, I bought another for under the table!

Hey guys! Figured I would do my first ever review. Now this is going to be my impressions of this tool, as well as my rating of the accessories for it. I havent used many routers other that DeWalt so theres no point in comparing. So here we go! I bought the DW618B3 kit over a year ago. I had a 1-3/4hp Craftsman router that just wasnt cutting it for some of the bigger projects i was getting into once I went pro. So upon review and after using a friends DW616 i decided i was going to go with...

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

10-30-2011 05:23 PM by moonls | 20 comments »

I’d been using my Craftsman 16” scroll saw off and on since 2003, and recently, with a renewed interest in scroll work, I started trying to improve my skill. I was becoming frustrated with keeping the very small pinless blades secured in the holders and maintaining proper tension. The other big problem was vibration. Having researched the different saws on the market, it became apparent that the Dewalt was the best rated of the bunch in my price range. I ordered one on-line ...

New Table saw for my shop

New Table saw for my shop

11-05-2012 12:28 AM by jerrells | 21 comments »

Well I finally burn out my old cheap table saw. I guess cutting some hard oak limbs was too much for it. I shopped around for something that I thought woul;d fit my needs for years to come. I decided on the Dewalt 745. It is going to be a Christmas present from my wife, my daughter and son-in-law and some money i pitched in. I was going to wait till black Friday to see if there was a better price. I normally show at Lowes and they had it for $369 which seemed to be the going price. I just hap...

Dewalt tracksaw

Dewalt tracksaw

02-25-2012 05:40 AM by Mitch | 7 comments »

I have been drooling over the thought of owning a tracksaw for a few years now, and i finally broke down and bought one a couple days ago! I have always been the type to wait and buy a tool when i need to put it right to work. I am working on a big trophy/show case job right now and wanted to make all the backs of these cases out of 3/4” oak plywood in order to have some good meat there to mount all the adjustible shelf tracking too. I really didnt want to wrestle all these sheets (a...
