Dewalt DWD112 - A satisfactory tool.

2139 days ago 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

2148 days ago 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 ...

DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

2200 days ago by tooldad | 44 comments »

I have had the opportunity to use about 4 different planers. I owned a Ryobi 12.5” for about a year and returned it because rollers wouldn’t work, They bought a Ridgid and it lasted about 3 months, same problem (Ryobi, Ridgid, and Milwaukee are same corp) Finally I bucked up and bought Dewalt after seeing this at the wood show. However I am not the average weekend woodworker being a shop teacher so minimum duty tools just dont’ cut it for me. I also had a Delta 12.5”...

LOVE this saw!

LOVE this saw!

2230 days ago by etivancic | 10 comments »

I was in the middle of cutting stringers out of PT 2×12 when I realized it was time to upgrade to a real saw. The skill saw wasn’t “cutting it”. I called my brother who is in the home building business and he recomended this saw to me…I LOVE IT! What a difference. This saw was a dream to use. VERY powerful. I love the electric brake as well which is rare in these saws or so it seemed. Features: Rear pivot depth of cut adjustment allows your hand to remain...

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

2240 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 19 comments »

Recently purchased the DeWalt model 735 13 inch two speed planer and stand. Right out of the box the planer had very few parts to assemble. The instructions were very easy to understand. I had to make a few minor adjustments in the height adjustment scale, but the preset stops were right on the money. Gave the planer a real test with some cedar boards that were up to 10 inches in width and the machine did great. I planed them down close to 3/4 inch thick and then switched to the slower ...

DeWalt countersink set--almost really good

DeWalt countersink set--almost really good

2240 days ago by KDL | 1 comment »

The quick-change driver is easy to use and does it’s job well. The countersinks cut a fine divet—the cutters are small, which gives a clean cut, but they do clob easily, so take a moment to brush them off between holes. The only weak point is the bits. They are brittle and have very little depth-of-hole adjustment. I broke them quickly, but found better replacement bits at a big box store. For the price, it’s a decent set, but having bought them, I would now spend the ...

Well built, reliable, great performing machine

Well built, reliable, great performing machine

2240 days ago by JLYoung | 12 comments »

I bought this planer about a year and a half ago and it has served me very well. The cutter head lock has pretty much eliminated snipe. The only time I get it is if I try and feed a wide board though without first jointing one face. (I know this is not the proper way, but if a board is short and wide, won’t fit on my jointer and I’m taking off 1/4” I figure I can flatten it quite well by continuously flipping it around). The blades on this planer apparently aren’t ...

Great Cordless Circular Saw!

Great Cordless Circular Saw!

2241 days ago by Hawgnutz | 3 comments »

When my whimpy Craftsman cordless circular saw finally gave up the ghost, I replced it with this one by Dewalt. So far it has been a fantastic buy. The XRP battery quikly takes a full charge in under an hour and gives you about 6 or 8 hours of steady cutting. I first used this in framing a loafing shed for our horses and it performed flawlesy, cutting treated 4×4s, plywood, and treated and untreated 2×4s. It comes with a case that has a mounting post complete with a clip for rep...

It is heavy at 56 pounds! Very well built.The table tilts 45 degrees both left and right. Tension, power switch and variable speed control ar...

My DeWalt 18 Volt 4 piece Combo Kit

2241 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 3 comments »

Over the years I’ve gone through many low end mediocre battery powered drills. I think this set is going to last me a long time. When you put one of these in your hand, you can tell, just by the feel, that you’re holding a quality tool. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hammer Drill Features: Variable speed Dewalt built high-torque motor delivers 500 in-lbs. of maximum torque, 2,000 rpm & 34,000 Beats/Minute. I’ve used this drill...
