Dewalt DCD970KL review

Dewalt DCD970KL review

1289 days ago by phtools | 5 comments »

I bought this drill to replace my Dewalt DC925, which fell off a roof and landed in a big nasty mud hole, I just figured the drill was toast and ordered a new one, saved the 925 for salvageable parts. The DCD950 and the DCD970 are the EXACT same drill except the clutch ring, which is black on the 950 and silver on the 970. The difference is the batteries that are included 950 has the XRPs and 970 has the new NANO’s(lithium-ion). OK, back to the comparison Pros of the DCD970/950 VS. the ...

Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

1156 days ago by Ryan Bruzan | 6 comments »

I picked up a nice, 12’ long piece of red oak S4S for ripping down into smaller stock. I needed 12’ lengths, but I also realized how much control I did not have if I tried to feed the board into my table saw from 11’ away from the blade. I didn’t think about handling and ripping it in my small shop. I mean, I have the length, but I did not want to have to crawl under the long boards to puzzle the ripping process together. After pondering the process for a moment for...

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

1031 days ago by moonls | 20 comments »

I’d been using my Craftsman 16” scroll saw off and on since 2003, and recently, with a renewed interest in scroll work, I started trying to improve my skill. I was becoming frustrated with keeping the very small pinless blades secured in the holders and maintaining proper tension. The other big problem was vibration. Having researched the different saws on the market, it became apparent that the Dewalt was the best rated of the bunch in my price range. I ordered one on-line ...

Great starter value

Great starter value

887 days ago by BerBer5985 | 16 comments »

I bought this to try when I first started out in hand tools as my first hand plane, basically because it was $12. I figured if it was horrible for $12, it would make a great paper weight. My expectations were not high. Let me be clear from the get go, this is not a LN or LV plane. It may compare with an older stanley, on stanleys worst day of milling, but not horrible for $12. Also, please keep in mind that this review is strictly based off the fact that for $12 and a little time, you can...

Rikon 70-450 EVS Lathe Review: Solid Performance, Cost Saving Finish

Rikon 70-450 EVS Lathe Review: Solid Performance, Cost Saving Finish

215 days ago by JamesVavra | 9 comments »

The full review, with more photos, is posted on my blog at http://www.artistryinwood.info/?p=291 The text of the review follows: Rikon 70-450 20” EVS Lathe Review First, a little background on how I landed on this lathe: I started out a little over five years ago on a little 10” benchtop model from Harbor Freight. That got me hooked on turning and I quickly realized I needed bigger gear. Within a few months I had upgraded to a used Jet 1442VS. The Jet is a 14” x 42” 1HP lathe that we...

Remington 16" Electric Chainsaw

Remington 16" Electric Chainsaw

2371 days ago by Mick | 3 comments »

I purchased one of these at a local hardware store for trimming limbs in my yard and doing rough cut of logs for the rustic furniture I build. It does have plenty of power and minimizes weight. I actually used it to cut down an entire (dead) 15ft apple tree in my yard. The apple wood is drying in my “bone yard”. The chain tension will not hold for more than a few minutes. The chain that comes with it has such a low tooth count compared to chain speed that it chews throu...

Single handed clamp

Single handed clamp

1985 days ago by Tony | 4 comments »

I recently purchased two of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are available in 300 mm (12”), 450mm (18”) and 650mm (25½”) with a 80mm (3”) jaw length. I found the clamps to be more than adequate for light clamping or spreading, the action takes a little getting used to, I am more used to the conventional pistol grip versions. The clamp/spread change over, is just a turn of a switch, no mechanical changes or swapping end a...

Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

1681 days ago by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

Poor Man's Festool

Poor Man's Festool

1569 days ago by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Intro For the longest time I wanted to get the Festool CT-33 (I would also be satisfied with the 22 version) as I believe that to be the flagship unit of the company – sure they make exceptional tools, but this one is by far their best contender in my opinion. Problem is – for my hobby use, it’s just beyond what I can justify to spend on a small dust extractor. A month ago, someone posted the PC 7810 vacuum on craigslist, but it was in a very used condition, and I felt...

Puma Compressor

Puma Compressor

1407 days ago by Raymond | 5 comments »

PUMA 5020VP I had been stressing over the purchase of a new compressor for sometime now. Do I want a vertical or horizontal? Oiled or oil less, 110 or 220, HP vs CFM or SCFM. And then there was manufacture, Harbor Freight, Craftsman, Campbell Hausfeld, Sanborn So may many things to think of. Finally I decided on the PUMA 5020VP 20 gallon Manufacture Specifications • 5 HP, 110 /220 volt air compressor • 100% durable cast iron radial pump • Belt driven, oil lubricated pump ...
