Ridgid R4511 10 in. Granite Top Table Saw

06-23-2009 06:02 PM by PurpLev | 160 comments »

To be fair , I was waiting to write this review after I tackled the last (and only) issue I’ve had with this saw as to give a proper review of it’s operation, and not limited by any aspect of missing/malfunctioning parts out-of-the-box. my ‘limitation’ was that the fence had a slight disposition issue once locked all the way down (was fine if locked half way – it would stay put and stay on the mark – but if the lock handle was pushed further, it would skew ...

The Anarchist's Tool Chest

The Anarchist's Tool Chest

Review of The Anarchist’s Tool ChestBy: Christopher Schwarz I have just re written the review slightly since I after reading it again could see that I could be read wrong in some passages, that they could be read like ‘personal’, I belive what is left now is not more personal than Schwarz’s choose to put us inside in his book. I never meant to harm Schwarz’s I try to review a book.(I posted a mark in the comments so you can se where the old and new comments is). Before I sta...

Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show

Household product that removes CA Glue residue…and the Dan & Odie Show

05-09-2009 11:52 PM by Douglas Bordner | 113 comments »

Calico Polish Off Artifical Nail and Polish Remover. Excellent and effective product for removing CA glue build up from fingers. I haven’t had the need (knock wood) to separate my fingers from themselves or a workpiece using this product, so I do buy the Super Solvent that is a shelfmate of the other Hot Stuff Cyanoacylate glues I use. However after fiddling with some inlay banding today, I developed a thin coat of CA on the fingers. At $2.99 the Polish Off (with Acetone) is significant...

All is not perfect in Saw Stop Land

All is not perfect in Saw Stop Land

03-12-2012 07:26 PM by ccweems | 95 comments »

While I don’t own a Saw Stop saw and do not doubt their quality and their potential for safety I was given pause by a part counter guy. I asked about the saw and the noted feature. I was told that there didn’t seem to be any problem about the saws or the safety feature but there was about the expense of “false alarms”. He said that most of the stop cartridges were sold due to false activations. When you see the demo of the guy holding the hot dog and then stopping ...

Delta 36-725 Contractor Tablesaw: Follow-Up Review

04-20-2014 08:37 PM by thetinman | 86 comments »

EDIT: THIS REVIEW WAS EDITED ONLY TO ADD A LINK TO ADDITIONS THAT WERE ADDED TO THE SAW. TABLESAW ADDITIONS: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/101376 I bought this saw over a month ago and wrote an initial review then. The review included many assembly tips as the owner’s manual had not been updated since the saw was first released to the market. While the review is for the Delta saw, it includes many assembly tips that may be of value to any owner of a new saw. Likewise, this review foll...

Harbor Freight = an exercise in readjusting your expectations   ... it is what it is.

Harbor Freight = an exercise in readjusting your expectations ... it is what it is.

06-13-2012 06:57 PM by Mainiac Matt | 84 comments »

I go back some 16 years with Harbor Freight Tools…. And while I don’t often buy from them, I was reminded today that I have to readjust my expectations to reflect their low price point… As a company, I have to say that Harbor Freight has always resolved any issues I’ve had with their products, it wasn’t always a speedy solution, but in the end they made it right. So given the recent positive review about their ‘F’ style bar clamps…. and me...

Review of the Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw

Review of the Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw

05-07-2009 04:17 AM by Scott Bryan | 79 comments »

Intro: The saw is a 3hp, 585 pound monster. I purchased the 52” fence, hydraulic mobile base and extension table. Setting it up is definately a two person job (although I did it alone with help from my wife only in setting up the front rail). I did get help in lifting it onto the mobile base, however, as this is the only way to mount it to the base. The instructions call for help in setting the saw upright since the base cabinet weighs 200+ pounds. I was able to do it alone b...

Quality is quality, good design is good design, both make life easier

Quality is quality, good design is good design, both make life easier

07-10-2012 02:20 PM by Woodwrestler | 75 comments »

I am somewhat new to woodworking but have done a few successful projects. Much of what I have had to do is break down large sheets for cabinet projects in the shop, built in cabinets, etc. Trying to do that by yourself on a table saw is difficult and I just can’t seem to get my wife interested in helping ;-). There is always a debate about the cost of tools and value. Time for me is the most precious resource. Consequently, as someone that is earlier in their woodworking journey,...

Hitachi Table Saw

Hitachi Table Saw

01-19-2008 06:12 PM by Obi | 73 comments »

On first look the Hitachi C10Fl looked like a great deal but after using it for 2 years the following has become evident: FOR EVERYONE WHO THINKS I PUT THE DUST COLLECTION ON FACING THE WRONG DIRECTION !!! NOTE THAT THE PORT IS OPPOSITE THE OPERATOR. THE PORT WAS INSTALLED ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS. Rated according to the manufacturer at 3 hp found out that it is actually 1 1/2 HP a bold faced lie that they should be sued for. This is a terrible design, and although bigger and be...
