20V MAX* Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit

08-10-2015 12:11 PM by dbray45 | 11 comments »

This was one of my wife’s impulse buys. I have stayed clear of battery powered drills, not because I haven’t had them, I have. I have one at work and I use it as much as I use a power drill at home (not drill press) – very little. Since I use it so rarely, I have to charge it before I can use it. I have 2 Milwaukee corded drills at home which I like a lot – One impact and the other is not. I was putting in a wall up on Saturday (covering an exposed cinder block ...

A real workhorse

A real workhorse

06-17-2015 02:54 PM by mramseyISU | 14 comments »

I’ve had this planer for almost 2 years now so I’ve had plenty of time to make up my mind I think. I got it as a package with the add-on tables and an extra set of blades. Out of the box all I needed to do was get the tables attached and it was ready to go. One thing to know going into this you need something to direct the chips off of it. The chip blower REALLY works and wood chips will be flying all over. I made the mistake of using it without anything and it looked like a torna...

Pretty Satisfied with Replacement for my Bosch Sander

Pretty Satisfied with Replacement for my Bosch Sander

02-12-2015 03:27 AM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

I’ve had my Bosch 1295DVSK ROS for several years and have been mostly happy with it, but two things have been a disappointment: 1) it chatters more than it seems reasonable; and, 2) the vacuum attachment doesn’t hold well anymore, partially due to the rubber ring on the sander itself getting brittle. I’ve read several reviews of the DeWalt, so I decided to see if it was the answer. This reconditioned model is only $59 at CPO Three observations: 1) I did not do a direc...

Testing drills and impact

Testing drills and impact

12-27-2014 11:48 PM by grosa | 15 comments »

Of all the drills I have, I really like the Dewalt XR brushless. They are very smooth running drills and I like the three light setup. They do have more power than the 18v. The Porter Cable is a nice drill but, it didn’t feel comfortable in my hand and the length of the grip is to short. The Dewalt is the one I like the most. It is heavier than the Makita but it has twice the power. The Dewalt 5 hour batteries are well worth the money. After testing all the cordless tools out there I we...

Great workhorse for my woodworking, but I often wish I have variable speed

Great workhorse for my woodworking, but I often wish I have variable speed

11-26-2014 03:59 PM by paxorion | 15 comments »

This Dewalt sander was a phenominal upgrade to my old Craftsman sander. I got this sander to replace the Craftsman it because vibration feedback I felt from my Craftsman tended to leave my arm with a “funny tingling” feeling after extended use. Fearing long-term issues, I thought I was due for a replacement. Good: The sander has been my go-to sander for well over a year now. It took a little getting used to the power switch from a rocker style on my Craftsman, but over time,...

Shelix cutterhead for DW735

Shelix cutterhead for DW735

10-27-2014 12:24 AM by johnstoneb | 10 comments »

I bought a DW735 planer about a year and a half ago. The knives were starting to get some nicks in them and time rotate then. I decided after talking with somebody at the local woodworking club that had changed to a Shelix cutterhead to do the same. I ordered the cutterhead direct from Byrd. Price was only about $10 more than Amazon and freight was less. so price worked out about the same. The cutterhead was well packed came with four extra cutters , the tool to change the cutters and...

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...

So mad I could spit!!!

So mad I could spit!!!

Purchased this tool refurbished. Blades were so dull it wasn’t funny. couldn’t even run balsa wood thru it, LOL. So I bought the Deulen Jig to resharpen the blades because I figured refurbished the blades wouldn’t be very good to start off with so I planned ahead. Just to set this rant up for you folks, I work as a mechanic in a power plant making all kinds of repairs. I’ve been doing this for over 25 years and have had my share of bad fasteners. I did try to plane som...

Good performance but I wouldn't buy it again

Good performance but I wouldn't buy it again

09-25-2014 02:21 PM by JSB | 26 comments »

The planer itself performs very well. It has a heck of a chip ejection system that will allow you to pipe this into a filter bag without the need for a dust collector. I’ve never had an issue with the amount of power it has even at full 13” wide passes. Snipe is horrible out of the box but the way I have my auxiliary bed setup it reduces it significantly. Lots of upgrades and options available on the internet. The reason I wouldn’t buy it again is that it’s a money ...
