Dixie Digital Angle gauge has convenient feature over competitors (!Updated)

(January 22 2009 update) I’m sorry for not updating this review sooner. I did contact Peachtree on April 5, and by April 25 they had a new one in the mail to me. I did have to send the non working one back. The new unit seems to be working fine ever since. I’ve accordingly updated the star rating.) (March 16 2008 Update: I went to use the gauge the other night, and it had stopped working! Stuck on 0.0 degrees. I tried replacing the battery, and also did some strategic shaking a...

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

12-20-2010 04:03 AM by westerndf | 6 comments »

So I have had the dust deputy for about 2 years and was using the 5 gallon buckets that came with the kit. I got tired of emptying the buckets during planning so I searched and found the perfect fit. It was a 32 gallon container from Lowes and its the perfect match. I have attached the dust deputy to the bucket and was concerned that the suction would be impacted negatively but was positively surprised that it worked just as good if not better that before. I say better because I don’...

Great design, good execution, excellent buy if on sale

Great design, good execution, excellent buy if on sale

12-06-2014 05:26 AM by paxorion | 6 comments »

These clamps were the first of my F-style clamp purchases to replace my HF F-style clamps. As of the review posting date, I have a set of 4 of these clamps. For full disclosure, my first choice would have been to get Bessey Tradesman with the 2K handle, but those things are rarely (if ever) on sale. I also have a set of 6 Bessey Tradesman in the 12” size so this review is a bit of a comparative review. At the full retail price, it’s , it’s a no brainer I would go for t...

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

12-04-2008 09:44 PM by ferstler | 6 comments »

I read a review of another Ryobi table saw elsewhere on this site and the owner was not happy with it at all. He basically criticized the small size of the saw and the lack of quality in the fence. Well, we have to remember that saws of that kind are low-priced items, built for use in tight spaces and for owners (or woodworking dabblers) on strict budgets. The reviewed saw was different from the BTS20 reviewed here, but it is possible that the fences for each unit were the same, or at leas...

Rigid 2410LS

Rigid 2410LS

06-19-2009 02:42 AM by Teaza | 6 comments »

I purchased the Rigid 2410LS saw from Home Depot yesterday. The saw was retailing for $499 and after tax it came out to $530. I managed to fit the entire unit in the back seat of my 99 Lincoln Town Car by taking it out of the carton. I stuffed the packaging materials in the trunk and slid the saw in the back seat. It was easy enough to lift right in, a bit of a tight fit but compact enough to get in there. That in itself impressed me. I got it home and before I unwrapped the plastic, I too...

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

03-24-2014 05:16 PM by MrRon | 6 comments »

This is not a woodworker tool, but it is a tool none-the-less. Made of plastic, aluminum and spring steel; operated by hand, it is used to pick up items that are out of reach with suction cup like grippers. Originally intended for older people who have difficulty picking up items that are out of reach, I have found more uses for this tool than it was intended for. Although I’m not an old person (only 79), I do have difficulty picking up small items that fall to the floor in my shop. Th...

Clean Your Bits & Blades

Clean Your Bits & Blades

05-28-2012 03:11 PM by plantek | 6 comments »

I’ve always heard about the virtues of cleaning you saw blade when you think it’s time to get it resharpened.Well I finally did it and ended up with a blade as good as it was when new.I wanted a environmentally friendly cleaner to do and decided to try the degreaser I use to remove the shipping grease that comes on new tools…This stuff worked fantastic. I used a lid from a Homedepot 5gal bucket and let the blade soak for about 2 – 5 mins. I then only had to gently br...

A good impact driver for the money

A good impact driver for the money

12-05-2008 08:08 PM by ferstler | 6 comments »

I own two of these (one for each hand; OK, that is a joke), and you can see both in the photo. I obtained one a few years back and picked up the other a few months ago when I was feeling flush. I do not feel so bad about buying two of the things, since together they cost about the same as one such unit from any number of more upscale manufacturers. These are 18-volt jobs and they are part of the Ryobi One + battery-powered tool catalog collection. This means you can buy the driver without ...
