Little green screwdriving man

02-05-2011 12:40 AM by Vrtigo1 | 3 comments »

I bought this to replace my 18v DeWalt hammer drill as my go-to screwdriver. I got the hex chuck version – it’s nice to be able to slip bits in and not have to deal with tightening the chuck. You can also get drill bits and countersinks in hex shank, so if you need to use it for those functions as well, you can. My primary objective with this purchase was to get something lighter, and therefore easier to get into tight spots and to reduce the strain on my arm when doing a lot...

DeWalt DC515B 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum

DeWalt DC515B 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum

06-14-2011 11:49 PM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Thought I’d post a review for this thing since I didn’t see one here. Let me start out by saying, I love it! I usually don’t get too passionate over my tools but this thing has met and exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. First a little history on how I came to buy it. I have been using B&D DustBusters around the house for years, was on my second one at the time I bought this. The problems with these DustBusters is that the batteries are not readily replaceab...

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

10-18-2011 05:05 PM by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

This book review is from the October 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Gary Roberts (Toolemera.com) is donating a book for a free draw! (See below for details) Woodwork Joints by William Fairham 1920 1920, you say? Yes, oh yes. I have a wee bit of an addiction to books and to have in my hands wisdom that was written almost a century ago is better than having some Swiss chocolate for a treat. The sub-title of the book found on the inside pages does a great job of describing the ...

What's with HF? Took a chance, yet another gem!

What's with HF? Took a chance, yet another gem!

08-17-2012 04:14 PM by Tennessee | 11 comments »

Now that I’m semi-retired, I have more time to drift through tool stores, home improvement centers, and the like.In HF the other day, noticed the 97593 Magnesium 4X24 Belt Sander on sale for $69.99, usually $79.99. With my 20% coupon, walked the last one out of the store for a ridiculous $55.00 Now I know we all like to think somewhere along the line we graduate from ever using belt sanders ever again, but for some reason their use pops up from time to time, and for me, it always se...

Replacement Hook and Loop Pads at Lowes

Replacement Hook and Loop Pads at Lowes

01-16-2013 05:19 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

The hook and loop pad on my Dewalt 421 sander gave out, and would no longer hold sanding disks. It lasted for 7-8 years, and I like my 421 more than the current Dewalt offering. I was surprised to find them in stock at Lowes. They run about $18, and better yet they fit many of the Dewalt 5” sanders. It works great, and restored my sander to like new. I now have two sanders so my wife can help! If your local Lowes doesn’t carry them, try Dewalt tools or https://www.too...

Laguna Fusion Tablesaw

Laguna Fusion Tablesaw

07-20-2014 04:25 AM by cjg | 22 comments »

I was in need of new tablesaw as my old Delta contractors model was just wore out from the years of use over the past 60 years from my father and then myself. My shop space is roughly 500 sq. ft. but somewhat odd shaped. To fit the available space and maintain a safe work flow I was looking for as much saw as I could fit with the smallest footprint. I looked at new and used and all the brands. Read the reviews and finally selected the Luguna Fusion 10” Tablesaw with 1.75HP and 36”...

Not impressed with this vise

Not impressed with this vise

02-12-2008 05:19 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I have bought several products from Lee Valley/Veritras, and I have been very happy with them. So, I expected a lot from them, when I bought this vise. For what I paid for this bench vise, I’m not that impressed. I took the picture for this review showing how the handles can get out of alignment. The problem is that the set-screws that lock the large screw and handle together are undersized. The use of set-screws I feel is the real flaw. The friction from a couple set-screws isn&#...

I know this is already listed under the tablesaw reviews but the previous ‘review’ wasn’t really a review. I’ll do my best to give you my thoughts on this. This review is from a perspective of ‘once the machine is put together’. Complaints are at the end. Power – SUPERB! Everything just melts as it goes through this thing (if you know what I mean). I came from a Ridgid TS2400 (I think that was the number). Granted – this isn’t a...

Great saw for the price

Great saw for the price

01-08-2010 10:31 PM by jerome | 11 comments »

I was looking for a new saw to replace my old Skil model and found this nice Milwaukee for $99.00. I have had it about a week and am pretty impressed. I was actually toying with the Ridgid brand, but opted on this one instead. This is a saw with no laser, or electric brake, but I personally didn’t miss them. Nice and powerful motor at 15amps so I haven’t experienced any binding under extreme use yet. Does have a interesting adjustable handle that you can position high or low de...

Hi All, ‘Picked up this 734 dewalt last week at Lowes. They had just dropped the price down to $399. I know you can get it for less at other stores on line but the shippng is outrageous so…. I have used other people’s planers….and this 734 is the best yet. It is a three knife system and gives a very smooth surface but the best feature is it’s 4 post hold down on the blades. The knife also has a a lock.. I plane short boards due to the size of my shop….w...
