Blade Alignment (front to back)

Blade Alignment (front to back)

06-06-2011 11:08 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

After having this saw for about 9 months, and using the heck out of it, I have noticed that the blade is not at 90- degrees – front to back. That means is is leaning back about 1/32 of an inch on the top side vs. the bottom (at the table). This was most noticable yesterday when cutting a 3-D compound cut and the cutouts were different size one side vs. the other. Now the almost useless product manual is of not help with this problem and previous attempts with Porter Cable have also been...

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

10-15-2011 11:07 PM by patcollins | 6 comments »

I bought this drill at a Direct Tools outlet store in Hagerstown MD, they sell reconditioned Ridgid and Ryobi tools. Usually the only way you can tell that it is a reconditioned tool is the reconditioned stamp branded on the tool but this one had definate cosmetic wear. I wasn’t too pleased when I got it home and opened the box that it looked like it had been used on a construction site. Well, then I used it and WOW what an upgrade over the 12V B&D I had been using. The Ridgi...

Great Stile and Rail Set  - Made in USA

Great Stile and Rail Set - Made in USA

01-01-2014 11:38 PM by mcase | 5 comments »

I recently went through a real nightmare with Freud’s new stile and rail cutters. Since I stupidly trusted Freud I did not use the set until I needed it for an order for cabinets. Unfortunately It was too late to return their junk so I had to eat the cost of their useless product. I replaced their garbage with a set of American-Made cutters from Eagle America. What a world of difference! – Smooth cutting and perfectly mating. It feels good buying American products and h...

Makita 18v 3pc combo kit

03-14-2015 01:36 AM by Hooligan | 10 comments »

I recently decided to purchase a new driver/impact for the shop and went with the Makita kit. I was reluctant after reading a lot about the battery life being short, but after thinking about the speed of recharge and the light weight nature of the tools decided that since I am just a hobbyist I could deal with the down time between charges. I placed the batteries on the charger today for the first time to find that neither would take a charge! Sure it felt like a bonus that they included the ...

New drum sander

New drum sander

04-07-2015 04:27 PM by Ladislav | 5 comments »

Hi everyone!! I finaly got bigger drum sander :))!! I used to had 16-32 performax but without sand smart, and it was ok but only after I removed the trip braker and bypass it. But still it was quite a work to get a full kitchen ( doors) thru it . And also annoying to have to do two passes on wider doors and not being able to keep sander set perfect to the table , but on the end it had to be lil higher wich meant i basicaly run everything twice , run once flip and in again . I was looking at 2...

Great cutting bits

Great cutting bits

06-20-2015 07:48 PM by DKV | 9 comments »

I bought this set of drill bits because I was always needing a bit a tad larger or smaller than the bit I had available. This is a set from 1/16 to 1/2 inches by 1/64th. It’s the “by 1/64th” that I bought the set. Now I can easily go a tad bigger or smaller. The bits cut very clean holes entry and exit but all new bits probably do. The real test comes after a year or so of use. These bits get 4 stars until I see them holding their edge after a year’s use.

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

Triton TTS1400 Track saw

08-12-2015 07:27 PM by Nicky | 3 comments »

Just to put this review into perspective I’d like to say that I’ve used it to break down 5 sheets of plywood and trim two door. This is not a comprehensive review just some thoughts to share. My 32 year old skillsaw has finally given up. It spent many years cutting through 2x lumber and plywood/osb. For the past 5 years I was just using to break down plywood to more manageable pieces. I’ve really looked hard at the Festool but I have a difficult time justifying the cost. I’m a hobbyist. ...

ROCKLER - DRILL PRESS FENCE KIT - ITEM #53648

ROCKLER - DRILL PRESS FENCE KIT - ITEM #53648

10-10-2015 10:41 AM by kdc68 | 3 comments »

This was an impulse buy because I didn’t really need to replace the fence I made with the table top. But I knew that this would be a good upgrade. Instantly I am impressed with this. The anodized aluminum fence is perfectly square. My shop vac hose is a snug fit onto the dust port, and I do like the sliding fences (features that my old one didn’t have). This fence fit on my existing table without any modifying. It’s a bit pricey, but worth it for me as this is an u...

Not just a pen lathe

Not just a pen lathe

11-24-2015 01:57 AM by Woodmaster1 | 1 comment »

I purchased this lathe at Johnson’s lumber wood expo in Sept. I can’t tell you how much needed to be assembled as I got the last one and it was the show model. I just completed turning a segmented bowl and it worked great. It did slow down if I got too aggressive but as long as watched that no problems. So far I have turned several Christmas ornaments, 3 lidded bowls, and two segmented bowls. The lathe has performed great. I added the bed extension and the fit was ok but needed to...
