Grizzly Drum Sander

Grizzly Drum Sander

05-25-2013 11:58 AM by GuyK | 16 comments »

Last Saturday I and about 1000 other woodworkers went to the tent sale at Grizzly in Muncy, Pa. I made a small purchase of some glue and drill bits and just spent most of the time there looking at tools that I didn’t have in the shop. One tool that I looked at while there was the Grizzly G1066Z 24” Drum Sander. I was really impressed by all the features it has and the quality of the tool. After coming back to the shop and discussing with Chairman of the Board ( no not my wife ) th...

Strength, reliability, and affordability

Strength, reliability, and affordability

01-30-2008 11:00 PM by Rob McCune | 0 comments »

I bought a set of Ryobi One+ tools a couple of years ago. The reasons I bought the set are several. Affordability was chief among them. I don’t remember how much the set was but it was half what the DeWalt set was while still being 18v. The drill that came with the set was almost the same as the P211 but without the hammer drill feature and the accompanying handle. It was very durable, very dependable, but the trigger switch went out after only a year. I bought a new switch and in...

It's worth it.

It's worth it.

Over the last decade or so that I’ve owned my Craftsman contractor’s saw, I’ve come to demand the utmost, penultimate level of mediocrity from it while telling myself that the jump from this saw to the Powermatic 66 is sort of like jumping from my $500 Remington 1100 shotgun to a $3000 custom Baretta over-under: the object is to break clay birds, right? And both throw a lot of lead in the air, which is all that counts, right? And yet, I’ve learned to tune my table sa...

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

07-27-2009 06:03 PM by FrankLad | 1 comment »

When I decided to move my small woodworking operation indoors, I knew I would need some type of dust collection system. My projects are small – mostly wooden rings and the occasional ring box or other small item, but I still didn’t want even a small amount of fine dust particles floating around in our house. The good thing for me was I knew I wouldn’t require a full-fledged, expensive unit. After a bit of research (thanks to the guys in the LJ forums for suggestions!) I...

can't do without, but could be better

can't do without, but could be better

09-12-2010 11:25 AM by Greedo | 7 comments »

i saw this one being sold in a “dual pack” along with the GSR 10,8 drill driver for an interesting price where you basically get the GSR almost for free, but with only 2 batteries for both. (those are the european names)and yesterday i had my first “on site job” and i simply could not have done the job without this tool as i had to remove screws from inside tight boxes. it comes in a soft mallet with 2 bits wich i thought was another gadget i would never use, but it...

The Milwaukee C12D

The Milwaukee C12D

01-28-2011 11:24 PM by steliart | 16 comments »

This is probably the best drill/driver I ever had; it scores 100% in my ratings.It’s a heavy duty cordless drill/driver and it can work all day with 1 ½ batteries I was so surprised with its power lightness in handling it and it outlasted both Bosch and Makita by far. Bought it a year ago brand new in sealed case from a very reputable tool store and it was not cheap. Unless you own one you cannot grasp the value of this tool. Here are the technical specs for this masterpiece ...

Piece of junk

Piece of junk

10-08-2011 08:37 PM by twoblacklabs | 21 comments »

Not much of a review. Not knowing better, we purchased this years ago and I have used it every since. However, it wasn’t until today that I realized what a piece of crap it really is. I came to this conclusion after using it side by side with a Hitachi M12vc. How did I happen to use them side by side? The piece of crap died while I was using it so I opened the M12VC which I purchased last Christmas. I had never used it. Frankly, I had not used ANY router since last year. Whatever ...

This is not full review but a first impression. Being disappointed by another product that I bought to use for a riving knife , I have been looking around for another product which would give the protection/safety that I desire when using my Unisaw.Last week I found the Micro Jig MJ Splitter Steel PRO System w/Double Splitters and after watching the videos on YouTube I ordered one on Amazon for $25.00. I received it yesterday and I installed it this morning. On the videos the installation ...

Harbor Freight 300 Lb. Capacity Mobile Base

Harbor Freight 300 Lb. Capacity Mobile Base

01-06-2013 11:02 PM by kdc68 | 22 comments »

I own 4 of these bases. Obvisiously I like them and think they are a good product. They are well made and glide easily across the shop floor. Assembly with the first one was a bit confusing. But after that the other 3 were easy. I’ve read from several sources that hardware is missing (specifically not enough nuts and bolts). All four I purchased had all the necessary hardware. The misconception is people think they need to place a bolt in every hole of the four corner braces. T...
