DeWalt DW734 12 inch thickness planer

DeWalt DW734 12 inch thickness planer

09-21-2013 02:54 PM by Purrmaster | 12 comments »

I’ve had this planer for about 2 years now and have run lots of wood through it. From easy stuff like aspen to nastier stuff like ipe and purpleheart. My overall experience with the tool has been excellent. I don’t know how I got along before I got a planer. The DW734 is the lower end of DeWalt’s “lunchbox” planers. The fancier one being the DW735. This planer has three knives, of the disposable variety. They are “double sided”. When the k...

New Sander

New Sander

09-09-2013 09:33 PM by RussellAP | 3 comments »

I’ve used my new sander on about 15 cutting boards so far. All hardwood. 6 position variable speed. 84.97$ at Amazon Grits, 60, 80, 120, 240. Pros:I like the way it feels in my hand. I like the way it feels on the wood. I love that it stops quickly so I can put it down. Cons:Has a hard time spinning though 60g. I guess the con isn’t fair of me, nothing really spins good with 60G on it. I only use 60G because my planer has a catch on one of the blades and iR...

Precise and Versatile TrackSaw

Precise and Versatile TrackSaw

08-18-2013 01:00 AM by scarpenter002 | 9 comments »

I purchased this Dewalt TrackSaw kit last year for Christmas. I purchased this specifically for larger projects that require sheet goods, such as the New Yankee Miter Saw Bench & Cabinets I am building. (See my blog here.) Shipping:This tool was shipped directly from Dewalt Due to the length of the 102” track, it was shipped via freight. There was some confusion in the shipping process. requiring me to contact the local freight company to schedule delivery. The saw was atta...

new slider on site.

We had someone steel the new 10” makita slider and the old turd of a dewalt slider from the jobsite last week. we are trimming out a hotel and have to have the tools on sight so the boss picked up a new dewalt at the BORG. I am a fan of the dewalt. I have used this saw 12 hours a day for the last 5 days and it has probably cut a few miles of trim between the two shifts. it was dead nuts right out of the box. it has performed so well that I told him to pick up another one on his way...

Big Foot Scroll Saw Lift Arm

Big Foot Scroll Saw Lift Arm

07-15-2013 07:18 PM by jerrells | 15 comments »

I received my Big Foot scroll saw lift arm today and installed it in under three minutes. You will need a Torx T-35 tool to get the existing bolts out. Also be sure to watch the installation video to get the parts in the right order. With as much scrolling as I do this will be a very useful add-on to save time and frustration when changing blades or putting the blade through a hole in the center of a large piece of work. Very easy to use; just lift the scroll saw arm and it will lock in pl...

Dewalt 713 miter saw

Dewalt 713 miter saw

06-21-2013 04:37 AM by UncleSnail | 1 comment »

dead nut perfect miters right out of the box. It is shipped with a 40 tooth, thin kerf combination blade. This blade did a better job than my freshly sharped 80 tooth. So I put the Dewalt blade back on. This saw is moderately priced and is very much so worth the bucks. Uncle Snail I realize the picture of the coffee table I built has absolutely nothing to do with the saw review but how interesting can a saw pic be?

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 Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

06-01-2013 06:59 PM by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

03-25-2013 04:33 PM by scarpenter002 | 6 comments »

Ordered these clamps from Woodcraft to go with my DeWalt TrackSaw for $44.99. Purchased these at a 10% discount in December. Watch for their “10% off all DeWalt” sales to order items like this, as they do not normally go on sale. It was shipped direct from the manufacturer. I have used these with both the TrackSaw and Router adapter. Features:These slide into the bottom of the track and quickly can be engaged or released with one hand. (very similar mechanism to the Quick-...

For Christmas this year, I purchased a DeWALT TrackSaw (Review pending) and decided to add on the Router Adapter.

CompatibilityThis attachment not only fits most DeWALT models, but also has adapters to fit the Porter-Cable 690 & 890. UseI have only used t...
