Just picked up my new Bosch 18v Litheon yesterday morning ($239 can) for an install i had to do. I wasnt confident that my Dewalt would make it through the job and didnt want to be stuck without. This is the second Bosch drill ive had and now i wont use anything else. This drill is very light for an 18v which im sure mostly has to do with the lo-pro litheon battery packs it uses. i found myself check the case befor i left to make sure the drill was actually in there because it was so light co...

Remote Control Switch

Remote Control Switch

03-02-2012 07:51 PM by dustyal | 6 comments »

I paid $21 for this Stanley Remote Control Power Hub. I rated it 4 stars because the remote sender has a four position channel selector while the receiver outlet head is preset at the factory to a channel number label on the back of the unit. So, you can only set for one channel. Having said that it does not interfere with my Lone Ranger III unit. It is rated at 15 amp and 1875 watts. That is sufficient to run my vacs at least. It says it will broadcast up to 100 feet… I tested ...

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

02-23-2009 08:25 AM by Jim | 6 comments »

I had heard favoable reports of these blades and when I actually found them in a store here on Maui I was shocked. Usually we don’t get to see new products so quickly here. Anyway, I tried them and was very impressed. They cut on the up and the down. No to very little tearing even of veneered plywood. One less thing to think about—do I draw, and hence cut, on the bottom or the top of the plywood?!They’re a little thick so you can’t do tight turns, but other than tha...

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

10-15-2011 11:07 PM by patcollins | 6 comments »

I bought this drill at a Direct Tools outlet store in Hagerstown MD, they sell reconditioned Ridgid and Ryobi tools. Usually the only way you can tell that it is a reconditioned tool is the reconditioned stamp branded on the tool but this one had definate cosmetic wear. I wasn’t too pleased when I got it home and opened the box that it looked like it had been used on a construction site. Well, then I used it and WOW what an upgrade over the 12V B&D I had been using. The Ridgi...

Triton 2 1/4hp plunger router

Triton 2 1/4hp plunger router

02-04-2011 01:42 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 6 comments »

WOW! This was my Christmas present this year and I have been impressed every time I use this router. The construction of the tool is outstanding to say the least. The brushes are easy to access, the plunge is smooth and easy to control, the rack-and-pinion plunge is very groovy, even the depth turret is user friendly and easy to adjust. The depth stop itself is idiot-resistant and hasn’t slipped on me yet (unlike the Freud model). I didn’t know if I would like the one-wrench colle...

Rockler customer service rocks

Rockler customer service rocks

07-13-2014 03:25 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

A little history. About 5 years ago I bought a mini bench top router table from Rockler. After two moves and some mishaps the mdf subfences were ruined so I needed new ones. I didn’t want to make my own so I contacted Rockler to see if I could order these parts. Rockler answered my email promptly with the information that they didn’t make that size anymore but that the longer ones for their regular table would fit, but would stick out at the sides a bit. And they asked what m...

Construction Master 5 Calculator from Calculated Industries

Construction Master 5 Calculator from Calculated Industries

01-14-2013 06:04 PM by CueballRosendaul | 6 comments »

Seasoned old Lumberjocks who spend too much time in the shop can easily add and multiply feet and inches in their heads, but for those of us younglings with less experience, or the older ones with sawdust between the ears, the use of a construction calculator speeds things up and reduces the likelihood of making mistakes. Spend your time in the shop making noise and dust, not looking for common denominators by investing in a calculator from calculated industries. The primary thing I use t...

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

01-15-2013 04:13 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

I was on the fence between 3 and 4 stars. I ultimately went with four because, in the end, the saw meets my needs and expectations. But it took a bit of work to get it there I work out of a one-car garage which I share with lawn care tools and my kids bikes, scooter, etc. Oh, and there is also a snap-on rollbox and a motorcycle in there somewhere too :) That said, I have to get creative with how I store my woodworking stuff which includes five floor machines, workbench, etc. Granted, m...

Good saw, with modifications!

Good saw, with modifications!

Straight out of the box you will be dissapointed with this saw. Some of the major flaws are very pronounced vibration above the 1200 spm speed, the blower is not nearly strong enough, the knob to tighten the tilt on the tabletop is made of of soft rubber and will bust if overtightened, also if you plan on using the holddown foot it is almost impossible to get it tight enough to not twist if the piece of wood you’re cutting actually tries to pull up against it. However, I have found th...

Log weight & BFT calculator for Android devices

I’ve been very impressed with this calculator I found on Google Play. Here's the link to the free app. There is a paid version that adds features, 1. multiple tally sheets & 2. the ability to e-mail the sheets to another device. I’ll be paying the small fee to upgrade this app. The grocery store now has a bunch of prepaid cards for sale and one of them is for the Google Play Store! If the link doesn’t work, just go to your Google Play app and search using the keyword: s...
