Low price but lacking in important features

Low price but lacking in important features

1849 days ago by jake | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw due to the DeWalt name, reasonable price and past experience with DeWalt power tools. While this tool is powerful enough and seems well built, it lacks features that make it’s performance only average at best. The most frustrating aspect is that it lacks a blower and the wood debris from the cut obscures the sight line/markings that you try to follow. It is surprising as my last jig saw was sold by Walmart under their own private label at the time called Quantum Pro...

It Sucks...And That's a Good Thing

It Sucks...And That's a Good Thing

439 days ago by Matthew Parker | 4 comments »

I’ve had this DC for 9 months now and have emptied the barrel 4 times which should give you an idea how much I use the thing. Another key point about my usage is that I don’t have any ductwork. I connect the DC directly to the tool I am using at the time. I have it hooked up to a 110v 30A outlet which has not tripped during my use. Another reviewer said that this DC could suck the chrome off of a trailer hitch. While that is clearly hyperbole they made the point well. I ha...

Earlex SS77 Steam Generator

Earlex SS77 Steam Generator

589 days ago by Jeff Waggoner | 4 comments »

We bought the Earlex Steam Generator at WIA this year and I could not be happier. This was our first experience with steam bending and it was nice to have something that just worked straight out of the box with no hassle and little setup. I made a steam box out of 6” PVC and used the supplied connector. We were up and running in about 30 minutes. We still have a lot to learn about bending wood as you can see here Steambending Fail! and Steambending Success! I would like to point out that non...

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

Easy Tools for Woodturning Rougher, Finisher and Detail Tools

434 days ago by Nick_R | 4 comments »

*UPDATE* After using these tools for a few months and turning lots of stuff I have found a reason to complain.. But really these are great tools and seem to live up to marketing however the edges do not last as long as you might think, They do not stay super sharp and then one day become dull. It is an over time degradation so you reach a point where the tool is not dull but not really sharp either… You have to debate on whether to turn the blade and what happens is you don’t t...

Gorilla Tape 4.5 stars from the clamping perspective.

Gorilla Tape 4.5 stars from the clamping perspective.

33 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, I know gorilla tape has been reviewed before but I thought I’d give it another. I want to share my experience with clamping. I have used all kinds of tape to get the job done. Painters, masking, packing and duct. All of them had some uses but for the purposes of clamping they all had failure points. I’ll discuss those and give my impressions of gorilla tape. Stickiness: most tapes had some immediate failures especially when there were trace amounts of dust or mois...

Great Saw for dovetails

Great Saw for dovetails

32 days ago by mramseyISU | 4 comments »

I picked this saw up a couple weeks back to try my hand at hand cutting dovetails after losing 4 teeth out of a Japanese style saw on one drawer. I’d read that the Japanese saws aren’t as good on harder woods like white oak which is what I mostly use, wish I would have read that before I bought the thing but other than that it’s a nice saw and I’ll keep it around I think. Back to the review at hand though. I started the process of laying out dovetails on 4 drawers and ...

Don't touch my drill!

Don't touch my drill!

2386 days ago by matter | 4 comments »

I bought my DC925 in September. It has been my faithful sidekick since the day I bought it. Power to spare- you can expect the screw, bolt, or your wrist to break before you stop this drill. I have used it for everything from installing small hinges, to drilling 1” holes in concrete, to mixing mortar. The batteries last forever, the only time I have used more than one battery in a day was building a deck where I put 3500-4000 3” screws in. The battery still did about 2500 sc...

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

Great deal for beginning woodworkers

2249 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 4 comments »

This is a blade I was curious about for a long time and I can tell you that this blade is great. I was originally looking into the 40 tooth version of this because Wood magazine had rated it really great but this one just caught my eye because it has more teeth, better for crosscutting, and it has large gullets every five teeth for sawdust removal. This makes it great. I was worried that my “Under powered saw” couldn’t handle ripping with a 50 tooth blade but this thing has ...
