I just bought this tool the other day specifically for one project, used it today for the first time, so this is an intial impression review and time will tell how it holds up or what other uses I may find for it. LOML asked me early in the week if I was working this weekend, and when I told her no I was off I stepped into the SWMBO trap!! Good she says, I ordered oriental carpet for a stair runners and you can help me install it this weekend. After reviewing her video on stair runner i...

Not Bad Afterall

Not Bad Afterall

10-19-2011 09:55 PM by pintodeluxe | 27 comments »

Had blade marks after ripping 1.5” white oak. Even after taking a skim cut with featherboard and zero clearance insert with thin kerf splitter I still had blade marks. Not burning, just the sort of cut that reveals its imperfections when you hold it up to the light. My industrial full kerf combination blade sure makes glassy smooth cuts compared to this one. In fact I had to switch back to the Freud combination blade to make skim cuts on all boards. Too much work. This one is goi...

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

03-11-2012 05:42 PM by Chipy | 6 comments »

After putting up with Ni-cad battery’s for the last 20 years it is a pleasure to finally own an 18 volt Lithium Ion drill/ driver. I chose the Makita LXFDO1Cw on Wood magazine’s review. The drill feels comfortable in your hand ergonomic and all that Fahrvergnügen jazz. The motor is full of torque and has plenty of power. Recharge time was one of the shortest compared to its piers it its class according to Wood magazine but I have nothing to compare it to I am still living in Ni-c...

Dewalt 713 miter saw

Dewalt 713 miter saw

06-21-2013 04:37 AM by UncleSnail | 1 comment »

dead nut perfect miters right out of the box. It is shipped with a 40 tooth, thin kerf combination blade. This blade did a better job than my freshly sharped 80 tooth. So I put the Dewalt blade back on. This saw is moderately priced and is very much so worth the bucks. Uncle Snail I realize the picture of the coffee table I built has absolutely nothing to do with the saw review but how interesting can a saw pic be?

Wait for a sale.  Not worth full price IMO.

Just bough one of these from Rockler.com on sale for $35 and free shipping. Mine is a Port-A-Mate PM1000, but is IDENTICAL to the Wood River unit pictured in another review. I picked one up for my jointer (21” x 42” base size) and am very satisfied with the quality and function based on the cost. They are still on sale, and I plan on buying two more for the same price. If I had paid $60, I would expect a little more. I believe I would build my own rather than pay full price.

Sawhorse with an attitude!

Sawhorse with an attitude!

I just got my B&D Workmate 125 put together. I’d heard horror stories about the assembly process, in fact, the guy that sold it to me at the B&D outlet told me not to pay too much attention to the instructions. He was right. The instructions are terrible, but I still got it together in about 30-45 minutes while watching TV. Granted, a number of the holes for the bolts didn’t line up very well, but with a set of vise grips, a few hammer taps and minimal cursing, it went...

Good personal filter, but disappointing

Good personal filter, but disappointing

01-09-2010 07:06 PM by Chris Wright | 14 comments »

This system was purchased when we started up our turning program with the patients from Walter Reed with the intent that if someone needed better filtration then just a dust mask. During operation it provides excellent filtration and fresh air along with the obvious face protection one likes when turning. The motor is quiet so you’re not deafened by the constant hum of a fan near your ear. However, it does fail in a few respects. The battery takes a while to charge and the last time...

Vega   # D-48 Duplicator

Vega # D-48 Duplicator

09-29-2010 02:23 AM by grosa | 3 comments »

This duplicator is the best manual duplicator for the money that I have used. It comes in different lengths and different price ranges. It has a variety of different adjustments. When you buy it, It comes with the aluminum extrusion, the chain, the spoked guide wheel, the blade holder head, the cutter, two center point brackets ( for holding round turnings as a template) and it also comes with 3 different stylus.The cutter head is spring loaded and can be locked if you just want to make a str...
