Lightweight saw  cuts with power and precision

Lightweight saw cuts with power and precision

05-31-2008 03:12 PM by Loren | 7 comments »

I don’t like the big 10 and 12” Slide compound saws. They aretoo heavy to easily move around. I’m a relatively young man andI am strong, but still I don’t like lifting much more than 40 lbs. if I’m installing trim. I bought this saw because I was doing a job where I had to miter9” wide crown moulding and my older 12” miter saw (not a slider)wasn’t able to do it, even on the flat. The larger a blade on one of these sliding saws, the more ...

JDS Dust Force

JDS Dust Force

07-26-2009 05:44 AM by buffalosean | 10 comments »

I ordered a steel city 1 1/2 hp dc from woodcraft on mar 6 as a birthday present to myself….. lol. I didn’t come for two months. my local woodcraft store was more than helpful and set me home with the jds 1 1/2 hp dc. I love it. It has a one micron bag. removing the dust bag is way easier than the jet dc. My dust collection is set up for one tool at a time. I have a small weekend/weekday night shop. I’m the only one using it. The collector has stood up very well all...

POS Stapler

POS Stapler

12-28-2009 10:39 PM by lew | 19 comments »

About a year ago, I purchased the Stanley TRE550 Electric Stapler. I know it wasn’t the most expensive stapler on the market and I didn’t expect it to be the “end all” of electric staplers. I used it once to make the child’s rocker which probably required driving 150 1/4” staples into oak. It didn’t have great power but then, I didn’t expect it to be a muscle machine and I could live with tapping in the unset staples. Now picture this, I am ...

ok this is my 1st review so go easy on me..lolanyways “out of the box” this saw seems to work really well, the stock blade could maybe be a little better but i planned on a better blade anyways so no huge deal, i also bought the 6 inch extension for it but it was put on B.O. so i should get it this week so ill try and review on it with the extension at a later timeive had the saw for about 3 days so far and the 2nd pic was literally plugging it in and cutting, the fence probly was...

I wish I had this years ago

I wish I had this years ago

My wife got me a craftsman impact driver for my birthday a while back. I know some people like to pick on craftsman, but I already had their cordless drill and I wanted to stick with interchangeable batteries. I use the 19.2V Ni-Cds. I know a lot of people swear by the Li-Ion, but those cost a lot more money. Now I’ll be able to upgrade in the future if I want, but based on my experience so far, I have no plans to do so. This thing is AWESOME! I can drive a 3” screw into a...

may seem like a big invesment......

may seem like a big invesment......

i have three of these chisels, 2 that i inherited and one that i have just bought. i amassed every time i use them and very disappointed in my old chisels. the Japanese chisels may seem like a big investment, but trust me every time you use them you be pleased that you bought them.the specialist metal cuts like a dream and will hold its bevel for as long as any tool i know.i think if you can fork out the cash that they’re well worth it.thanks forreadingCO

Poor quality control

Poor quality control

02-23-2012 08:27 PM by tut69 | 28 comments »

I received a Bosch Gcm12sd dual bevel glide miter saw from my lovely wife for Christmas 2011 so its about 2 months old. Up until now i’ve only used it in the “chop saw” mode with narrow materials. Recently I tried to crosscut a 1” x 12” an realized there is a problem that cant be adjusted. The blade is not parallell with the arm that moves it. As I complete a cut through a 12” board the trailing end of the blade is cutting an additional 32nd off the left ...

snap cap keeps popping up

snap cap keeps popping up

01-05-2013 10:54 PM by John | 8 comments »

this plane is made from nice materials and is nicely machined. the blade is nice and thick and holds its edge unfortunately, it has two modes; loose enough to adjust the blade but the snap cap pops open unexpectedly, or tight enough to keep the cap closed which is too tight to adjust the blade I have the same issue with the low angle version of this plane as well. whenever you get behind it, you run the risk of popping the cap, then it’s a PITA to get the cap back on and back to w...

French Polishing. Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques. By Derek Jones

French Polishing. Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques. By Derek Jones

05-22-2013 11:54 PM by Jorge G. | 3 comments »

While I have done French polishing in the past, I would like to become more accomplished with it. I thought this book, given it’s name would be the one that would gain me that knowledge. Sadly this is not the case, if you are considering this book, do not waste your money! There are more in depth, better explained sources in the internet. I should have bought a Charles Neil book instead of this one. First, I do not know if it is because this is written by a British person, but the te...

Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp

Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp

12-24-2013 01:39 AM by SirFatty | 10 comments »

This is a review of the Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp. Purchased today, it was on sale (in store) for $29.99. The construction is all metal, I assumed that there would be some plastic involved, but was pleasantly surprised when the box was opened. The only plastic are the magnifier cover and the knob. The fluorescent tube in circular with 22w of light and no buzzing or flickering. The 5” magnifier is clear, no obvious imperfections. The arm articulates with litt...
