One of few things Ryobi Got right.

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

03-28-2016 03:33 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

To give Ryobi more than 2 star rating is pretty good, considering I am not a huge fan of most of their products. So for a plunge router, this is a good router to have whether you are a novice or a pro.It has plenty of power to do any job you need it to do. easy controls for speed changes. the on off switch is with in thumb reach, the plunge mechanism is nice and smooth. quickly locks and unlocks, and easy to do so with both hands on the router,, ergonomically it is very comfortable in the ...

Ultimate lunchbox

Ultimate lunchbox

09-22-2016 08:08 PM by Joshh | 2 comments »

After spending the whole weekend planing some 2×4s and trying to find my way from under a mountain of shavings I finally decided on a power planer. I got a refurbished one but would be probably better off buying new for the piece of mind that the one was not too abused.See how the table is not in pristine shape out of the box. With the planer I did more in half an hour than I could do with hand planes in two days. It works exceptionally well on changing grain near knots where no ma...

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw - Old saw still going strong

The LOW-DOWN of the RIDGID RS1000 Radial Arm Saw by WISTY: NOTE: This is a saw that I have had for a while now, I am just getting time to finalize a review for it, enjoy the read! The RIDGID RS1000 is an EXCELLENT saw at an AFFORDABLE price! Excellent for those who are lacking floor space. Highly accurate and extremely powerful saw that is built to last. My personal recommendations are simple: GET ONE AND KEEP IT! Good Luck trying to find one though as anyone who already has one will pr...

Great resource

Great resource

Isaac was great. He rushed my small frame saw kit because I needed the saw for a project. The saw screws were great too. His store is a great resource to making your own saws or restoring old saws.

Right out of the box and pretty impressive machine: PROS:T-squre fenceExcellent directions on set upPretty Good dust collection.Overall a solid machineOBVIOUSLY THE SAFETY FEATURE (which can be turned off.) CONS:Needs really aggressive dust collection or the interior gets messyLittle plastic on switch is too easy to lose.My 1.75 hp is a bit underpowered for me.Won’t allow you to use a molding head but I never do anyway.The support legs for the table extension need more lateral sup...

Grngate Gates Work Great

Grngate Gates Work Great

Check out my video review on Youtube…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ic9A73Fb_Y Installing this Grngate starter system was amazingly simple. If you can plug in a phone, you can install this system. Of course you have to wire the system controller, but that’s nothing more than stripping a few wires, and screwing the wires to a terminal block. Actually I sacrificed a 240v extension cord so I could keep my dust collectors cord intact, and that was a good solution for me. Th...

Small shop air compressor

Small shop air compressor

12-31-2009 06:27 PM by 8iowa | 14 comments »

Many of us appreciate having a brad nailer in our shops. Here in Gainesville, Florida I’m limited to a 225 sq. ft. working area. This 2 gallon Campbell Hausfeld compressor is idea for those of us who have small and very small shops. It sits on a 14” x 13” footprint and is only 15 1/2” high at the top of the handle. This oilless, 100 psi compressor only weighs 17 lbs. It comes fully equipped and ready to use with the included 2” brad nailer/stapler. They ev...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

09-11-2010 10:03 PM by Elizabeth | 13 comments »

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Save your money and buy something else. It took me 3 pairs (two pictured), at almost $15 each, to learn my lesson. 1 Star is too high
