Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

08-05-2010 04:37 PM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

This is my first planer, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but it works great. All of the controls are easy to use, two speeds (different # of CPI for dimensioning or finishing). I like the fact that the cutter head is connected to the base with 4 risers instead of two like the DW734 and DW733 as well as the Ridgid and Ryobi planers they carry at Lowes and Home Depot. The depth adjustment is extremely easy to use and once I set it, it hasn’t moved once. The top is e...

Great saw for a big box store

Great saw for a big box store

12-11-2008 09:39 PM by DannyBoy | 9 comments »

I know, we all give the big box stores crap for having shoddy this, that, and the other. But let’s face it, we nearly all shop there. Lowes has always been a good place and I continue to love buying from there. I was lucky enough to get offered a bit of a shopping spree from my father for my birthday (a bit belated) and Lowes was just down the street. For the past 6 months I had been cursing myself for spending $30 on a crappy Black your Decker saw that was mostly plastic. I boug...

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...

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...

Dewalt DCD760KL

Dewalt DCD760KL

02-27-2011 01:26 AM by phtools | 2 comments »

Our crews use a lot of different makes of cordless drills and when they need one from the shop they used to grab one of the Makitas but now their first choice is the DeWalt DCD970 drill. The DeWalt deliver a lot more power over a longer period of time. Part of this is their having the biggest (and heaviest) lithium ion battery and part of it is the 3 speed gearbox. We use the Hole Pro adjustable hole cutters a lot and the low speed setting is perfect for good cutting speed and having enoug...

LOVE this saw!

LOVE this saw!

03-10-2008 11:36 AM by etivancic | 10 comments »

I was in the middle of cutting stringers out of PT 2×12 when I realized it was time to upgrade to a real saw. The skill saw wasn’t “cutting it”. I called my brother who is in the home building business and he recomended this saw to me…I LOVE IT! What a difference. This saw was a dream to use. VERY powerful. I love the electric brake as well which is rare in these saws or so it seemed. Features: Rear pivot depth of cut adjustment allows your hand to remain...

Low price but lacking in important features

Low price but lacking in important features

08-07-2009 02:05 AM by jake | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw due to the DeWalt name, reasonable price and past experience with DeWalt power tools. While this tool is powerful enough and seems well built, it lacks features that make it’s performance only average at best. The most frustrating aspect is that it lacks a blower and the wood debris from the cut obscures the sight line/markings that you try to follow. It is surprising as my last jig saw was sold by Walmart under their own private label at the time called Quantum Pro...

10 years and still going

10 years and still going

10-25-2014 03:06 PM by Canadianteacher | 12 comments »

I am a shop teacher at a middle school in Abbotsford BC. We purchased 8 of these Dewalt scroll saws 10 years ago and have have only had to replace 1 of them (the motor went after 9 years). One more saw is making some funny sounds in its upper arm and will most likely be done soon (I will take the motor and place it in my other saw). The saws get used by grade 6-8 students cutting from 3/4” alder to 1 and 3/4” basswood. I must say that my students are not easy on the saws and I hav...
