SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw (ICS31230: 3 hp, 1 phase, 230 V, 13 A)

06-01-2010 02:46 AM by stevenmadden | 54 comments »

I purchased this table saw in early April 2010 and it arrived in early-mid May 2010. The delay, I found out later, was due to the fact that SawStop was making a transition to the new, upgraded industrial cabinet saw. Anyway, when the saw arrived, I was pleased to find out that SawStop had upgraded me to the new dust collection shroud, blade guard, and lock down throat plate for free. There have been several very detailed reviews of the SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw here at LumberJocks, ...

Five stars for blatent theft

Five stars for blatent theft

11-02-2009 08:04 PM by rtb | 54 comments »

Had to stop a Lowes yesterday and wandered into the tool dept. to see whats new. And for once there is something !!! Found a 6” planer painted delta gray with delta blue knobs and the peell and stick delta label marked down for close out. Noticed that it was apparently the only one in stock, but on the shelf below they were a stacked some new porter-cable 6” planer with nice color labels on the boxes. They were porter cable gray with black knobs and peel and stick porter cable la...

Harbor Freight Dovetail jig

Harbor Freight Dovetail jig

07-26-2010 07:20 AM by Tim29 | 53 comments »

I have been wanting to get a dovetail jig for sometime now. I was up against a brick wall however. Do I fork over the bucks for a Porter Cable jig or do I buy a cheaper jig and see if it does the job for less money. I have tried this type of approach many times with many tools. Most of the time I have went on to pay for the better quality tool as well as the cheaper tool that did not work. This is not one of those times.I paid the $23 for the Harbor Freight Dovetail jig and it works pretty we...

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

05-21-2011 07:38 PM by lilredweldingrod | 53 comments »

This review is just for unloading and assembling the Grizzly G0690 10” 3hp cabinet saw. and I will say that most of you will not need the manual at all as far as assembly is concerned. I was very impressed with the construction and workmanship of this saw and the price wasn’t bad either. After getting the saw on the ground and in the shop, we unpacked and checked for any damages. The way they pack these things, is almost impossible to receive damage in normal handling. Everything ...

Great bang for the buck, but DON'T leave it stock!

Great bang for the buck, but DON'T leave it stock!

08-26-2009 09:11 PM by dbhost | 53 comments »

I felt it necessary to write a review of THIS specific dust collector. Many home hobby woodworkers use Harbor Freight 2HP Dust Collector to refer to the current model #97869 and the older model #45378 interchangeably. While they use a large number of the same components, and are most likely build on the same line, these are without a doubt NOT the same tool. Building on the success of the #45378, Harbor Freight had some improvements to put under the hood, and market as the #97869, many ...

Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw

Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw

02-28-2008 09:15 PM by John Gray | 53 comments »

I’ve had this saw for about a year and love it. It was pretty square out of the box and the fence is really steady in contrast with earlier reviews on older models. The ability to move it on wheels is great, it comes with the wheels attached a bonus. There is a 2 1/2” dust collector hook up up under the saw which is so so, it’s hard to control the saw dust on any contractor’s saw. I have had no troubles with it and would highly recommend it.

Move over Diablo, Irwin got something right for once

Move over Diablo, Irwin got something right for once

07-25-2012 02:39 PM by lumberjoe | 51 comments »

Yesterday I found myself in Lowes. Rumor was they were offloading all of their CMT stuff cheap. While browsing around I stumbled upon the Marples blades. Disclaimer I have a saw blade addiction. If I see something new or exciting, I have to buy it. It’s a problem and I need help! Also I am not a fan of Irwin at all. Their marathon blades are pure garbage, and the “classic” blades are a downgrade from whatever came on your saw – as hard to beleive as that is. I did some...

Harbor Freight 60 Piece Alloy Steel SAE/Metric Tap and Die Set

Harbor Freight 60 Piece Alloy Steel SAE/Metric Tap and Die Set

07-26-2012 12:20 PM by b2rtch | 51 comments »

For quite awhile I wanted to buy a tap and die set. I buy many things on Amazon so I shopped on Amazon several times for such a set but the prices for such sets always stopped me from buying one. Last week I was browsing through HF website and I read reviews about this set. The reviews were mostly good, so after work I went to buy one of this set. Strangely enough I have been living many years without such a set but since I bought it I have used it every day!It is quite an extensive se...

Harbor Freight Bar Clamps

Harbor Freight Bar Clamps

04-26-2009 05:27 PM by PCorl | 51 comments »

First off I agree with some here at LJ that Harbor Freight makes some real junk. I also agree with some here at LJ that Harbor Freight makes some pretty good stuff. I have been using Harbor Freight (Pittsburgh) F style bar clamps for some time now and am totally satisfied with them. For the cost they can’t be beat. When they aren’t on sale they range in price from $2.99 for a 6” clamp to $9.99 for the 36” model. On sale they are cheaper yet, I think I paid $1.99...
