Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

01-18-2010 06:37 PM by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

Puma Compressor

Puma Compressor

10-19-2010 06:49 PM by Raymond | 5 comments »

PUMA 5020VP I had been stressing over the purchase of a new compressor for sometime now. Do I want a vertical or horizontal? Oiled or oil less, 110 or 220, HP vs CFM or SCFM. And then there was manufacture, Harbor Freight, Craftsman, Campbell Hausfeld, Sanborn So may many things to think of. Finally I decided on the PUMA 5020VP 20 gallon Manufacture Specifications • 5 HP, 110 /220 volt air compressor • 100% durable cast iron radial pump • Belt driven, oil lubricated pump ...

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

02-13-2011 09:57 PM by FJPetruso | 5 comments »

I found this Bucket Head Vacuum on display at Home Depot a while back & decided to give it a try. Heck… It’s only 20 bucks & uses an ordinary 5 gallon plastic bucket for collection of dust & chips. (I just happen to have acquired a couple of plastic buckets that have the same rim dimensions but hold about 7-1/2 gsllons & are several inches taller.) There’s no doubt that it’s a cheap vacuum but it works well. The filter is a simple pouch over the suc...

good saw guide with small problems

good saw guide with small problems

09-10-2012 10:44 AM by americancanuck | 5 comments »

I found this to work very well with one problem. The little red pointer that is used to line up the saw blade with the scale on the beam covers up the numbers making it impossible to see. a good solution would be to make this peice out of clear plastic. Other than that I found this to be acurate and easy to use. It’s a godsend when ripping down full sheets of plywood. Storage with the saw connected is a problem so I have been removing the saw after each use. The problem with this is th...

English pattern mortising chisels

I received a 1/4 and 3/8” of these chisels for Christmas and it is a revelation on mortising. These are fantastic additions to my tool chest and I may just walk away from power mortising for good because of them. Read my full review of features on my blog here.

This kit comes with a 3/8” VSR drill and a 1/4” drive impact driver, two batteries, 50 minute charger and a canvas carrying case.

Driver combo kit consists of: 3/8” compact cordless drill that features 2 speeds, 0-350 rpm, 0-1050 rpm, 17 torque set...

Infiniter Laser guide

Infiniter Laser guide

01-19-2010 02:34 AM by cliffton | 5 comments »

This is an aftermarket laser guide that replaces the outer washer on your arbor. The packaging says that it will fit an arbor that is 7/16×5/8. the package says that it will not fit these 12” miter saws, Ridgid, pro-tech, makita ls1221, dewalt dw705s produced before 2005. It will not fit these circle saws: Porter cable quick-change , all worm drives and skil. I just put this on my GMC 10 inch sliding compound miter and i have to say it works pretty good. the laser is turned ...

Blue Ribbon for Tenryu's Gold Medal

Blue Ribbon for Tenryu's Gold Medal

03-21-2009 11:17 AM by knotscott | 5 comments »

The Tenryu GM-25540 “Gold Medal” is the upper end of Tenryu’s vast collection of saw blades. It features a fairly standard 40 tooth alternating top bevel (ATB) tooth configuration that’s suitable for a wide range of tasks. It sports large C4 micrograin carbide teeth that should hold an edge well and will withstand several sharpenings. The Gold Medal is a top shelf blade that’s very comparable in design and performance to the industry standard Forrest WWII 40T....

Got router a week ago, these are my first impressions of it.

Got router a week ago, these are my first impressions of it.

03-26-2012 06:08 AM by ZLSBOARDWORKS | 5 comments »

Received my porter cable 893 pk from amazon about a week ago, I also received a few router bits along with it. Setting up the router was a cinch, and the fine tuning and measurement adjustments are real easy to use. I don’t know If I like how the motor locks into the base, I had figured when purchasing it that the motor had attached the same way as the older porter cable model like a cork screw. I also don’t know if I like how there is now a spindle lock for tightening and loosen...
