New Tool Purchase

New Tool Purchase

869 days ago by NormG | 12 comments »

Just this evening I picked up a new DW734. I would post what I paid for it, but you would not believe me. After I get it set up and make some chips I will write a review and by that time I will have taken a picture of my receipt and post it. There was a very large error made, I by happenstance came across it, took advantage of it by placing my order and the price was honored. I am very fortunate of this event and know it. I am also very grateful for this event as I would not have been ab...

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

Dewalt Biscuits Align Tabletops Accurately

885 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

These Dewalt Biscuits fit snugly into the slot compared to other brands I have used. In the dozens of tubes of Porter Cable biscuits I have used, they are always a little loose. That is fine for most work, but these Dewalt biscuits are better. Because the fit is so good, it actually aligns the edges for you. This is very helpful when doing glue-ups for tabletops. I realized how good the fit was when I mistakenly put biscuits in the slots on both sides of the joint. When I realized I had...

Huge Table and Easy Blade Changes

Huge Table and Easy Blade Changes

893 days ago by Kelen | 5 comments »

As a disclaimer, I am far from being a seasoned and proficient user of a scroll saw. I’ve cut out a few things in my day but have not embarked on any detailed fret work or intarsia design work. A majority of my projects have centered on simple wooden cutouts of letters, patterns, and a few animal puzzles. I view my scroll saw as more of a complement to my workshop and one of those tools that are fun to play with when I have some time. I have to be in the scrolling mindset though else I qu...

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

903 days ago by moonls | 20 comments »

I’d been using my Craftsman 16” scroll saw off and on since 2003, and recently, with a renewed interest in scroll work, I started trying to improve my skill. I was becoming frustrated with keeping the very small pinless blades secured in the holders and maintaining proper tension. The other big problem was vibration. Having researched the different saws on the market, it became apparent that the Dewalt was the best rated of the bunch in my price range. I ordered one on-line ...

My DW788 Scrollsaw Review and purchase experience.

My DW788 Scrollsaw Review and purchase experience.

952 days ago by Pie | 12 comments »

I was told the saw would be received in a week and I got it in about 4 days which was really nice. I also bought the stand that goes with the saw for an extra $46 and it was money well spent. The stand was very easy to assemble. I unpacked the saw (I bought a Used but New one) and could tell the saw had been opened and then repacked. The saw was in perfect condition, no scratches or blemishes at all. I picked the saw up and placed it on the stand and put the tear drop table on which was a sna...

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

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

1040 days ago by BlankMan | 3 comments »

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...

Router Dust Collection That Works!

Router Dust Collection That Works!

1054 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...

Dewalt D55140 oil-free compressor

Dewalt D55140 oil-free compressor

1100 days ago by phtools | 10 comments »

This compressor is fairly powerful, when it works… if you’ll notice, a lot of people have problems with this unit quitting working after a certain amount of time, and here’s the reason and the fix for those who are at all curious… There’s something wrong with the way this unit draws power, which causes a short in the circuit board. The board gets overloaded if you leave it on, and the fuse blows. No fuse means the unit stops working completely. You can replace...

Dewalt DCD760KL

Dewalt DCD760KL

1148 days ago 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...
