Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

04-16-2011 01:02 PM by phtools | 7 comments »

I purchased this compressor as a replacement for a 26Gal 5HP husky I had. There was nothing wrong with the Husky it was simply that my space could not accommodate it. I intended to use this as a homeowner who always has a project and as someone who uses compressed air for multiple purposes. I did alot of research and narrowed it down to either the MAC5200 or the DeWalt D55146. I decided on the Makita because of the lower price and the oil lubricated pump. The reason oil lubrication was import...

It is more than a Sander, it grinds VERY well

It is more than a Sander, it grinds VERY well

07-09-2010 07:03 PM by GBrag | 7 comments »

I have had this model for more than 6 years. AND I have bought one for each of my grown sons as gifts. It is incredibly versatile. If fact I use mine for grinding MORE than sanding. My (now 87 year old) dad made me a gift of this way back when then supplied me with zirconium belts made by another more professional vendor. He has a sharpening service and works a few hours a week doing sharpening for hardware stores in his area. He has an older Delta version, which is built a bit better quality...

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

11-01-2015 02:16 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

This is an initial (unboxing & assembly) review … I’ll update after the machine has been in service for a few months. The machine arrived at the local Woodcraft store on a pallet, and weighed in at 106 KG (a little over 233 pounds). We got the shipping container ( 45” x 26” x 38”) to fit into the cargo bay of my Jeep Liberty with a little finagling (and a few well-chosen words). I have a pneumatic table and a very patient wife that were invaluable in unloading it in my g...

straight-up the best miter saw I've ever used

straight-up the best miter saw I've ever used

09-12-2016 07:23 PM by Sundowner | 7 comments »

I’ll start out by saying that after years of wrestling with big 10” and 12” size miter saws and sliding compound miter saws, this little bugger is a revelation. Like most of us, a miter saw is a heavily used tool in my shop, and like most of us, the slide rails suck up more space than I can sacrifice in my shop. Being a happy Festool owner, I had pondered the Kapex, which does not have this problem, but at $1400, it’s a non-starter and doesn’t have the usual Fes...

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

11-24-2009 10:45 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

This is a very good blade at a fair price (~ $42). Freud’s Industrial series (denoted by an “L” in the prefix) offers a step up from their entry level Diablo and former TK/Avanti series. The larger teeth are C4 micrograin carbide and are very sharp. They feature an alternating top bevel grind (ATB) and a fairly steep 15 degree hook angle that helps it rip reasonably well. The blade has anti-vibration slots and a Permashield coating. I bought the LU86 as a back up to my Fo...

Incredibly good saw.

Incredibly good saw.

I bought this saw on sale for only $19.99 well over one year ago.I bought it to replace a similar saw ( but not the same ) that I had before and which finally burn up after years of abuse.(I used to to do all my remodeling in my house).Even me, who “love” HF tools,I was hesitant to buy a saw for only $19.99 but after over one year of frequently using it I am delighted with it.I use it for all kind of different projects but mostly to take apart pallets made of pine , poplar and oa...

The best deal I ever got!

The best deal I ever got!

03-17-2008 10:38 PM by Moshe Eshel | 7 comments »

I was looking at lathes for almost two years before I purchased this one.I previously owned (still do) a JET Mini 1014 (non VS) and was very happy for it – except for the size limit – 10” is a little too small when you want to turn a platter or a salad bowl. However, money was a little tight and I sure couldn’t afford a Oneway or Vicmarc…Anyway I was checking out lathes and even found a chinese one selling for a decent price, but I was unsure of quality, living i...

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

12-12-2014 12:33 PM by NickyP | 7 comments »

I saved my pennies waiting for the annual 15% off Black Friday sale and bought this JET drill press from CPO Outlets through Amazon for $518.49. It was delivered to my house 10 days later: After opening the box I quickly discovered there were not allot of parts that needed to be assembled: I bought a mobile base about 2 months ago from Rockler on sale for $34.99 free shipping: As I went through the assembly process I would degrease and wax were needed: ...

Jet Wood lathe

Jet Wood lathe

Hi again friends, I have had 2 Performax mini wood lathes. Both of them had some good features, price, variable speed, gaurantee etc. I purchesd the original one from Menard’s in North Platte Ne. I burned out the motor on the first one. They sent another complete lathe, and a few weeks later, I was going to use it and it wouldn’t turn on. They again gave me a new one. Fantastic business to do business with! While I was in need of a lathe, I purched a new JET JWL-1220VS...
