DeWalt DC515B 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum

Thought I’d post a review for this thing since I didn’t see one here. Let me start out by saying, I love it! I usually don’t get too passionate over my tools but this thing has met and exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. First a little history on how I came to buy it. I have been using B&D DustBusters around the house for years, was on my second one at the time I bought this. The problems with these DustBusters is that the batteries are not readily replaceab...

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

11-28-2012 05:51 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is a nice edgeguide that will expand the capabilities of your router. The fence is split, so you can slide it open for edge cuts, or keep it closed for inboard cuts. The guide locks down securely, and makes accurate cuts. It comes with everything you need, including knobs with springs to mount the guide to your router. The DW 618 uses the thicker rods, but it comes with some thinner rods for other Dewalt routers. This guide is helpful for cutting strip inlays, fluted columns, d...

Great planer for a small shop

Great planer for a small shop

11-27-2010 02:10 AM by SonnyGarcia | 10 comments »

I purchased this at sears a couple years ago and love it. No complaints at all. It is 13” wide, it can take hard wood well, cuts well and has a sturdy frame. The lowering top is also a neat design that makes use easy. It features an easy to read ruler on the side and has preset widths to make your planning easy. I highly recommend this to all. If you want to take it to a job site, you can. It is about 100 lbs. But is a bit akward to carry by yourself, although I have done it m...

Dewalt DCD970KL review

Dewalt DCD970KL review

02-14-2011 05:00 PM by phtools | 5 comments »

I bought this drill to replace my Dewalt DC925, which fell off a roof and landed in a big nasty mud hole, I just figured the drill was toast and ordered a new one, saved the 925 for salvageable parts. The DCD950 and the DCD970 are the EXACT same drill except the clutch ring, which is black on the 950 and silver on the 970. The difference is the batteries that are included 950 has the XRPs and 970 has the new NANO’s(lithium-ion). OK, back to the comparison Pros of the DCD970/950 VS. the ...

Dewalt homerun

Dewalt homerun

I purchased this router because I needed something lighter than my 691 plunge base in order to keep being able to do some woodworking. I bought the router andmost of the accessories for it, the fence(the inexpensive one), the round base to use with bushings, the vacuum adaptors for both bases. I used it for the first time to let in some banding and do some round over work on my current project. I am impressed with the the tool. It is easy to handle with either base. The plunge base is easy to...

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 5 inch Random Orbital Sander

DeWalt 5 inch Random Orbital Sander

09-06-2012 02:04 PM by Purrmaster | 15 comments »

I’ve had this tool for several years now. I’ve tried to take good care of it and it has taken good care of me. The particular model number is DW26451. Single speed random orbital sander. It takes 5 inch hook and loop (velcro) discs. You can see it here: http://www.dewalt.com/tools/woodworking-sanders-random-orbital-sanders-d26451.aspx. I cribbed the image from their website as well. I’ve been very pleased with it. The thing just works. It’s been completely...

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...

I just don't get it anymore.

I just don't get it anymore.

Update:It was mentioned in a review I wrote about another tool that it took me 20 years before I wrote a review and that as far as he was concerned what I say doesn’t really count. So I thought I would update why it took so long to write my review. I have always been very happy with this tool. It’s done plenty of studs and joists and decks. Cut just great and runs like a champ. My only complaint arose the one time I do not have a table saw and I had to make some precision on a pro...

Great Router and a steal for the price

Great Router and a steal for the price

01-31-2008 11:53 PM by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

this router is amazing! it is my first router and i am thoroughly pleased. i purchased this router combo kit for 200 dollars at Lowe’s. most of the other combo kits that i saw anywhere else for around 200 dollars were only 1 1/4 hp but this has a great 2 1/4 hp and it cuts through any woods that at thrown at it with ease. it proved to be an especially helpful tool when recently i used a straight edge guide with this router to joint an 8 ft piece of mahogany so i could reference of of th...
