Great heavy-duty corded drill

Great heavy-duty corded drill

07-14-2008 10:21 PM by sry | 7 comments »

(pic from the Milwaukee tools website)As I continue my home improvement adventures and transition into woodworking as well, it seems logical to try to share as much info as possible. So this review I guess is my official end to lurking and beginning of contributing to the community. My motivation for buying this drill was that I burned out my old Dewalt 3/8” drill trying to mix some thinset for tiling. The Dewalt drill was great, but clearly not geared for this kind of work. So it...

Does the job just fine.

Does the job just fine.

Combo model # CLPK27-120Driver model # PS30BImpact model # PS40B12 volt lithium ion batteries. 30 minute charger. I have been using these for the past 3 days in my day job and in the shop. No problems at all. The main reason I went with these as they are lighter than the 18v combo sets. Here is my video review. Pros:lightcheapstrongLED lightbattery indicator on impact Cons:none so far

Quick Release Clamp

Quick Release Clamp

02-27-2008 03:47 AM by Grumpy | 7 comments »

I have had two of these clamps for about 1 year. I bought them because I am a bit of a sucker for new tools. They sat in a drawer unused for a few months until I had a job that needed some tight clamping, the other quick grip clamps similar the Irwin XP did not have the gripping power.I now often reach for these clamps first because they have excellent holding power for their size (18”); -they are easy to apply-quick to release-the tensioning lever is ratcheted-you can adjust the tensio...

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

09-05-2012 06:34 PM by AJswoodshop | 7 comments »

I’m working on a bathroom and I needed to cut some tile. I wanted something that wasn’t really pricey, so I went with this HF central machinery tile/wet saw. The saw has a few problems, but for the price I’m very happy. The main problem was, that water will splash out of the saw, if you don’t have the blade guard on. With the blade guard on it’s hard to see where your cutting. Its a bench top tool, I used my scroll saw stand, just so I wouldn’t have to use ...

A must have for my shop

A must have for my shop

10-17-2010 05:14 AM by Chris | 7 comments »

This was a birthday present this year; I have only just been able to get some shop time with it. I am in the middle of a bookcase build and found this to be invaluable removing the whisper thin bit of wood needed to make the shelves fit just right or to clean up the home made moldings to complete the top of the case. Ease of Use:If you have used other planes you will find this plane to be straight forward and intuitive. Adjustments: The mouth is adjusted by loosening the locking screw...

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

02-13-2011 01:49 AM by Cubby | 7 comments »

I have been looking at Bridge City products for some time. I haven’t used them, however, because of the cost. You see, I never drove a Jaguar before. Well, recently I purchased the Bridge City Tool Work’s “Jointmaker Pro Single Wing” saw. This tool, ‘merely’, is a japanese saw blade tucked away in a unit that permits wood cutting operations. The precision cuts enabled by this tool and the surface definition produced by the cuts it makes is , in my opi...

After 5 years it's still kicking

After 5 years it's still kicking

01-22-2014 06:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I own only two newer craftsman tools. One is a 4” grinder that has lasted me 4 years after makita’s and dewalts burned out after about a year each. Go figure. And this little compressor that has been stellar..I’ve been wanting to give this little compressor it’s due for some time now as I’ve had tons of experience with it. .This compressor is now rated at 1 hp. Mine was labeled 1.5 hp. I think though that they are the same item. The hp must have been reassessed o...

Replacing an old benchtop planer

Replacing an old benchtop planer

02-13-2011 08:14 PM by Ian_S | 7 comments »

I recently purchased ($1390.00) this planer from my local woodworking store Warren Cutlery in Rhinebeck New York. The planer was on display in the store, so all I had to do set up wise was bolt on the cast iron bed extensions, connect the dust collection hood and install a plug. Set up time under two hours. The adjustment screws on the bed extensions were easy to use when leveling the beds, though the screws on each end had limited room for turning the allen key. This planer appears to b...

Used my boring machine to drill a bunch of holes in my cabinet box sides. Drilled 7 cabinets in around 20 minutes, this is a very easy tool to setup and worked just great. the only thing its a little loud while running so I put on my hearing protection.

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

03-21-2009 01:25 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

Even for a first timer, this inlay kit worked flawlessly as advertised. Using just basic router skills, it couldn’t be much simpler. Put the bit and the guide bushing in the router, trace the template to cut the receiving hole, add the spacer to trace out the inlay with the same template, cut the inlay piece free from the stock, and place it in the complimenting cutout hole. Some sanding may be required to make everything flush, and a practice run is always a good idea. The tip of the ...
