Craftsman Professional Router

Craftsman Professional Router

360 days ago by TianZi | 6 comments »

I recently purchased this Craftsman Professional router, though I did decide to return it a few days later. I only had it for 3-4 days, but figured I’d make an account here to post a review since the original reason I purchased the router was based off of lumberjoe’s review (thanks for the review!). Since his review was from about a year an a half ago, I figured I may as well post a new review since I was able to test it out. His review was very accurate compared to my experience...

Blue Ribbon for Tenryu's Gold Medal

Blue Ribbon for Tenryu's Gold Medal

1937 days ago 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....

Grinding wheel dresser

Grinding wheel dresser

1519 days ago by hairy | 11 comments »

Did you ever do something dumb, then follow up with something stupid? OK, I’m the only one. Anyway,I wore a big groove down the center of my grinder that I sharpen lathe tools on. Then I went to Sears and got this. This is a good idea, it just doesn’t do a good job. The wheel I was dressing is 120 grit aluminum oxide. I assumed this would be a harder material. I quickly wore this out and still had a groove. The instructions did say the plastic would wear down as you use it. Th...

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

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

836 days ago 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...

Useless

Useless

The DMT 3” x 8” DiaSharp® Stone, 8000x – described as a super fine stone quote – “The extra-extra fine (8000x) produces a mirror finish.” The accompanying literature says they are broken in at the factory. Well I gave this the old college try. At first touch you could tell it was way, way too coarse. So I tried breaking it in. I spent forty minutes or so working the back of a Pfiel chisel methodically over the stone on the side indicated on t...

Over the years I’ve gone through many low end mediocre battery powered drills. I think this set is going to last me a long time. When you put one of these in your hand, you can tell, just by the feel, that you’re holding a quality tool. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hammer Drill Features: Variable speed Dewalt built high-torque motor delivers 500 in-lbs. of maximum torque, 2,000 rpm & 34,000 Beats/Minute.

Not a bad little mini-driver but would look for the TEK4 version

Not a bad little mini-driver but would look for the TEK4 version

1633 days ago by David Craig | 12 comments »

I have been looking for a mini-driver that I could put in my pocket for small tasks around the shop and assembly work. I have the Ridgid 18v cordless for the larger tasks but it is sometimes a pain in the hip (literally) to have on my holster. Since I pre-drill all my holes before adding fasteners, I just needed a light duty driver for screws. This would give me the flexibility of having a drill already prepped with a bit for drilling and another set for driving. I didn’t want to invest...

You Get What You Paid For

You Get What You Paid For

1518 days ago by mrg | 18 comments »

Sorry to say that this little sander only gets a two star rating. I have had this sander less than a year and the bearing under the sanding plate has froze. It had such potential. ConsThe loading of sandpaper is not that great. But once you get the paper aligned and under the holders its OK. Loud Dust control not great and shop vac couldn’t be connected to the port. The sander has been used maybe 6 times. The past two days it was being used to sand the planter boxes and benc...
