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

11-03-2008 07:26 PM by OutPutter | 10 comments »

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...

Dewalt DC845KA Impact Driver

Dewalt DC845KA Impact Driver

10-11-2008 04:11 AM by Will Mego | 2 comments »

Thus far, I love everything about this driver! Faced with a roof job on my folks terribly rotten roof, and recalling the last time I was driving screws through simple plain old pine and how I couldn’t get screw in without stripping it, I decided to bite the bullet, and buy an impact driver. I looked at a few, but decided to splurge and get the 18V dewalt (in a kit, which included the 2 batteries). I’m glad I did. So far, it drives pretty much ANYTHING through ANYTHING. It’...

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

DeWalt DC616 18V 16 Gauge Cordless Straight Finish Nailer Review

07-22-2008 04:07 PM by Timber4fun | 4 comments »

Introduction – I have a small Porter-Cable air compressor and finish nailer. If you are like me, it doesn’t take long to get tired of hauling the air compressor, nailer, hose, nails, oil, and everything else that goes along with finish nailing, even when the compressor is small. Don’t get me wrong, I like my air compressor very much. However, it can be very inconvenient when you need to fire off just a few nails. In many similar cases, I’ll look for a workaround rather than haul out all m...

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

07-20-2008 07:30 AM by toolman | 4 comments »

As a woodworker, you need to produce a nice surface for a variety of reasons. Knowing this, we decided to test an orbital sander for this power tool review. We found a Dewalt Random Orbital Sander on sale as a factory reconditioned tool, so we thought we would give this a test. Our first impression was good. If you have been following our other reviews you know we love carrying cases, and the Dewalt random orbital sander has its own case. There is even room to pack some sand discs, alo...

Dewalt DWD112  - A satisfactory tool.

Dewalt DWD112 - A satisfactory tool.

06-10-2008 05:49 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

I’ve been using battery powered drills for several years now and have grown accustomed to the cord free nature and the power characteristics, but my two aging Craftsman drills are showing their age and were not up to the heavy duty demands of screwing up the ceiling in my garage so Saturday morning it was off to Canadian Tire and Home Depot I went. Looked at the generic brands at CT and decided if I was going to spend about $80 I may as well get a name brand drill. CT didn’t have...

Lightweight saw  cuts with power and precision

Lightweight saw cuts with power and precision

05-31-2008 03:12 PM by Loren | 7 comments »

I don’t like the big 10 and 12” Slide compound saws. They aretoo heavy to easily move around. I’m a relatively young man andI am strong, but still I don’t like lifting much more than 40 lbs. if I’m installing trim. I bought this saw because I was doing a job where I had to miter9” wide crown moulding and my older 12” miter saw (not a slider)wasn’t able to do it, even on the flat. The larger a blade on one of these sliding saws, the more ...
