New Table saw for my shop

New Table saw for my shop

627 days ago 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...

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 DW735 and DW7350 planer stand

Dewalt DW735 and DW7350 planer stand

1408 days ago by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

I have been very pleased with the 735 planer and 7350 planer stand with mobile base. The base rolls around effortlessly, yet locks down solidly with the push of a foot pedal. The planer works very well. I like to remove only about 1/32” per pass to limit wear on the machine. I have never had feed roller problems like some competitor brands, and the chip ejection fan (along with a Jet DC650 dust collector) leaves no chips on the floor and no dust in the air! Blade changes and adjust...

An oldie but a goodie

An oldie but a goodie

I have always liked radial arm saws. My first power tool purchase was a Craftsman radial arm saw. I only had the one saw and I could do most operations with it – ripping, cross-cutting, mitering; all achievable. The Craftsman (long gone) couldn’t hold a candle to the accuracy of this saw. The arm is cast iron that was aged prior to having the ways machined. The motor was a special built unit that has a flat bottom for extra clearance over the cutting surface. I purchased thi...

Router Dust Collection That Works!

Router Dust Collection That Works!

1149 days ago by TheDane | 12 comments »

When I bought my DeWalt DWP611PK router (which I love), I didn’t order any of the accessories for it. But, after such positive experiences with the router itself, I decided to give the accessories a shot as well. DeWalt offers four accessories for the DWP611PK … edge guides for both the fixed base and plunge base, as well as dust collection adapters for both. I haven’t had enough opportunity to use the edge guides (DNP618 for the fixed base, DW6913 for the plunge ba...

Hi All, ‘Picked up this 734 dewalt last week at Lowes. They had just dropped the price down to $399. I know you can get it for less at other stores on line but the shippng is outrageous so…. I have used other people’s planers….and this 734 is the best yet. It is a three knife system and gives a very smooth surface but the best feature is it’s 4 post hold down on the blades. The knife also has a a lock.. I plane short boards due to the size of my shop….w...

DeWalt Dust Extracting Vacuum.....As good as Festool?

DeWalt Dust Extracting Vacuum.....As good as Festool?

582 days ago by Cory | 37 comments »

I bought this vacuum for $220 from Amazon a week or so ago to replace a 6 year old Craftsman shop vac. I was drawn to this one because of the auto-on switch and the suction adjustment feature. Those are two items I had been wanting after demoing a Fein and Festool vac. At about half the price of those vacuums, this one performs equally well. There are a few minor negatives, but my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Positives:-Excellent suction-variable speed/suction power is ...

Dewalt DWD112  - A satisfactory tool.

Dewalt DWD112 - A satisfactory tool.

I’ve been using battery powered drills for several years now and have grown accustomed to the cord free nature and the power characteristics, but my two aging Craftsman drills are showing their age and were not up to the heavy duty demands of screwing up the ceiling in my garage so Saturday morning it was off to Canadian Tire and Home Depot I went. Looked at the generic brands at CT and decided if I was going to spend about $80 I may as well get a name brand drill. CT didn’t have...

Dewalt DW735

Dewalt DW735

2375 days ago by dataman | 13 comments »

I have really worked this tool for many hours lately and am totally impressed with its performance. It is pricy but has received a number of best product recognitions in magazine articles in their plainer reviews. It’s easy to adjust and feed wood through. You must use a vacuum system with it! It’s 13” wide capacity should cover most boards you want to plain down.It has a three knife cutter-head which helps extend the life of the knife. The blades are easy to change and t...

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...
