New affordable sliding mater saw

New affordable sliding mater saw

1866 days ago by Milo | 5 comments »

Hey True Believers, I’ve needed a new miter saw for too long now, and had actually purchased a 10” Skil from WorkShop tools. A couple weeks back I saw on their website that they had generic SLIDING miter saw for about 140.00. It was TD 10” Sliding Miter saw. Well, I’ve been trying to figure out where to put a big Radial arm saw I had (and had never used) and ended up taking the plunge with the new sliding miter instead. Since I had never opened up the box with...

A bit disappointing

A bit disappointing

1196 days ago by RandyMorter | 5 comments »

I recently got a Starrett C33H-12-4R 12-Inch Combination Square to replace an old (from the late 1970’s) Stanley 12” that just wasn’t cutting it for me in my hobby level woodworking. I really like this new square but I don’t use it for everything – I carry a Empire 6” from Home Depot in my apron and I use the 6” for most markings due to it’s size being more appropriate for most of what I do. After getting the 12” Starrett I am not happy...

Bosch CS10 Circular Saw

Bosch CS10 Circular Saw

283 days ago by redSLED | 5 comments »

This is a review on Bosch’s CS10 circ. saw w.r.t. a major design flaw, IMO, that I felt was significant enough to post here, so others don’t waste their time and money on this product. So this is not an in-depth review of using the saw over a 6 month period. Basically I first chose to buy this saw because it is often on sale for $99. at a lot of big box/hardware stores, plus on a lot of carpentry website forums many have noted Bosch’s durability and reliability (almost alway...

Freud Guide Bushing Adapter Ring installs different than most

Freud Guide Bushing Adapter Ring installs different than most

482 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is an adapter ring for the Freud FT1700VCE router, and it also fits some other Freud routers. It is a brass ring that allows the stock baseplate to accept standard 1-3/16” P.C. style guide bushings. One of the pictures shows a guide bushing installed, however these are purchased separately. The strange thing about this adapter ring is it has no holes or threads to mount it. Instead, it snaps into a recess in the baseplate, and is retained with the heads of two screws. The scre...

Veritas Skew Block Plane

Veritas Skew Block Plane

929 days ago by Andrew | 5 comments »

The Christmas present that keeps on shaving. My wife suprised me while making me decide what plane to get. A devious plan at the least, but she pulled it off. I helped a friend decide on this plane as the most versatile over the Lie Nielsen skew block plane. The major factor was the adjustable mouth. I opted for the 01 blade, usually suggested by hand tool gurus for low angle instruments. And now for the review… The fit and finish are far above any tool I have previously owned, th...

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

2058 days ago by ferstler | 5 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...

Great Product!

Great Product!

1603 days ago by Newfounlandwood | 5 comments »

Hey guys, I recently received a shipment of tools from Lee Valley and I’ll be putting in a small review on all of them. A straight edge is something that I have never owned before. It’s not something that is easy to find in Newfoundland, Canada (along with any other woodworking tools). But with the purchase of a router table and the making of a mitre saw stand, my twenty dollar HD level was not going to cut it. I am very pleased with this product. The length of the body is conc...

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

604 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is a nice edgeguide that will expand the capabilities of your router. The fence is split, so you can slide it open for edge cuts, or keep it closed for inboard cuts. The guide locks down securely, and makes accurate cuts. It comes with everything you need, including knobs with springs to mount the guide to your router. The DW 618 uses the thicker rods, but it comes with some thinner rods for other Dewalt routers. This guide is helpful for cutting strip inlays, fluted columns, d...

Harbor Freight Portable pocket hole jig

Harbor Freight Portable pocket hole jig

1859 days ago by Pete_Jud | 5 comments »

I picked up a Kreg single pocket hole jig a couple of weeks ago for 20 bucks and have fallen in love with the concept. Even “Norm” uses the pocket screws for doing face frames. I saw that Harbor Freight had a 2 hole jig that looked like it worked like the Kreg 2 hole jig for a whole lot less money. I thought I would give it a try. I had a 20 percent off any single item coupon and it cost me 54 bucks instead of 99 bucks for the kreg. The Kit came with the step drill, lock col...

A great portable saw

A great portable saw

2383 days ago by Zuki | 5 comments »

I purchased the TS2400LS in late December 2006. I needed a powerful and feature laden portable table saw for my workshop. I reviewed other portable saws including: Bosch 4000-09 Dewalt 774 I did not review the Makita 2704X1 it was not available at that time. I decided on the Ridgid for several reasons:- the non-pneumatic tires make for a more stable base- T- tracks in the table top- beveled top edge allowing the miter to slide easily- the slots in the fence allows jigs to be easil...
