Great & Quiet Portable Belt Drive Compressor

Great & Quiet Portable Belt Drive Compressor

07-21-2009 01:55 PM by Cato | 9 comments »

When I discovered that my loud old direct drive unit would not supply enough air to run my new framing nailer I started searching for a portable belt drive replacement with a 4 or higher CFM @ 90 PSI, which is supposed to be adequate for framers. I wanted a belt drive because I knew they were quieter, and I couldn’t stand the noise of my old one. I searched on the web and found this compressor to be highly rated by contractors, and it was supposed to be very quiet with plenty of pow...

Dewalt Protector Smoke Safety Glasses - Got it for $3 but It's now only $2 Grrr.

Do they worth a buck at all? Why did I buy them? Adjectives that might best describe this glasses would be Exceptional Quality and Amazing Value. True to their name, DeWalt’s safety glasses set the standard for quality and value. I got them shipped to my home a couple days ago for $3 but now only $2 and they are more comfortable than safety glasses costing 5 times as much. That’s why I want to suggest you guys to grab one if you are needing this kind of thing. The glasses...

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw

06-27-2009 10:13 PM by Doug | 9 comments »

I got this saw from a local news paper ad, I have had a number of craftsman radial arm saws, didn’t really care for them to much, kinda cheap made !, But now mine were newer saws and i know the old ones were real nice. This one was built in 1960-1962. It wasn’t in the best shape in the world so i dissmantled it and restored it, motor bearings,wires,switches,ETC. Avery nice saw, very acurate !

An oldie but a goodie

An oldie but a goodie

06-26-2009 11:09 PM by CutNRun | 20 comments »

I have always liked radial arm saws. My first power tool purchase was a Craftsman radial arm saw. I only had the one saw and I could do most operations with it – ripping, cross-cutting, mitering; all achievable. The Craftsman (long gone) couldn’t hold a candle to the accuracy of this saw. The arm is cast iron that was aged prior to having the ways machined. The motor was a special built unit that has a flat bottom for extra clearance over the cutting surface. I purchased thi...

The DeWalt Stacked Bargain...

The DeWalt Stacked Bargain...

06-13-2009 04:41 PM by knotscott | 5 comments »

This DW7670 is DeWalt’s 8” stacked dado blade set. It features (2) 24 tooth outside cutters, (4) 4 tooth 1/8” chippers, (1) 4T 1/16” chipper, (1) 4T 3/32” chipper, (12) steel shims, and a handy carrying case. The DW7670 expands to a maximum cutting width of 29/32”, and has a nearly infinite number of possible smaller widths by using the various shim and chipper sizes. All the teeth are C-4 micrograin carbide, and the bore diameter will fit 5/8” arbors...

I can't believe its not butter

I can't believe its not butter

From what I can see, the mechanics of this jigsaw appear identical to the corded version (the DW331K). Wow – this saw really surprised me. I wound up doing a lot of carpentry recently (cabinets in the garage made out of 2×4’s and plywood) and my B&D drill died. For my anniversary, the loml bought me a DeWalt 18v drill/impact driver combination kit which started me looking for a way to score another battery. Since I had a “lowest price I could find” B&D I t...

A Bargain and an All Around Very Good Performer in a 10" TK Blade

A Bargain and an All Around Very Good Performer in a 10" TK Blade

03-27-2009 01:17 PM by knotscott | 11 comments »

This blade is such a nice bargain. For around $35, it comes close to my Infinity, Forrest, and Ridge Carbide blades, and holds its own against my many of my mid level Freud, Tenryu, and CMT blades, some of which cost nearly twice as much. For a 50T blade it feeds surprisingly easily, enabling it to go through thick stock more easily than most similar blades. Crosscuts were very clean, and rip cuts give glue ready edges. It’s very versatile overall, and easy for smaller saws to spin. ...

Here comes the DeWalt Track Saw - Lookout Festool

Here comes the DeWalt Track Saw - Lookout Festool

03-19-2009 06:10 AM by GaryK | 30 comments »

After receiving the Dewalt Track Saw I recently won in the Winter 2009 CompetitionI tried it out so that I could write a review for it. The first thing I wanted to point out that separates it from the Festool Version isthat you can set it on it’s side and cut parallel to the surface it’s sitting on.Look at the second picture and you can see the two black stripes. Those are slipperymaterial making it move smoothly. Great for trimming the bottom of a door in place. It has a ni...

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...

Fully Automatic Weapon

Fully Automatic Weapon

So, this guy comes to the office to help one of the girls get into a cabinet that had a lost key. I heard all kinds of racket going on over there and thought I better sniff around. It’s a good thing I did because look what I saw. This is a drill with a 36 Volt Battery, two lights with 12 LEDs each, and a shoulder strap. The shoulder strap wasn’t just to help handle the weight, which I estimate at 5lbs, it was also to help with the torque. When you pull the trigger on this thi...
