Another Harbor Freight Gem

10-08-2015 01:27 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 3 comments »

I picked this hoist up today to install my new Grizzly G0572 Air Filter (see my other review).This little dandy made it a piece of cake to install my air filter by myself. What was really nice about it is the overalllength when fully raised. It what short enough to get the air filter up to the ceiling. My regular chain fall was way to long. With the 20% coupon I paid about $35. If you are going to hang anything like a air filter pick one up and save your back.

Bought it less then a year ago. It had to sit in the box for a while while I transferred to a new base. Finally got to set it up which was easy till the test. The blade was off. The side closer to the fence was cutting high. By looking at the instructions I figured it would be easy to adjust. Wrong! The cap screws were frozen. Three of them turned no problem but I couldn’t get the rest to budge. Since it is still under warranty (at the time of writing this) I contacted Grizzly for help....

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

02-09-2016 07:02 PM by Kelly | 3 comments »

This shouldn’t be a review of a piece of exercise equipment, its very nature, during use, requires me to treat it as such, in order to get across its behavior characteristics in the shop. I have several four inch flex hoses in my shop. Only this one returns to its original, retracted form. It is probable this will be the only one my shop will ever see, even if it fails and has to be replaced. PRO: Because it retracts to its original length, I don’t have to cut it for runs, t...

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

Dremel 670 Mini Saw Review

02-24-2016 11:18 AM by OakHill | 1 comment »

Great attachment. If you need to cut small or thin pieces of wood or plastic you really need this Dremel accessory in your tool inventory. I have only tried it on about 6-7 cuts thus far. I found the best results when the work piece is clamped and in using two hands, one to hold the tool and the other hand to guide the Mini Saw works the best. Perhaps with practice this method will change. Just as with any other power saw, let the tool do the cutting, not the muscles in your arm. Well ...

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

One of few things Ryobi Got right.

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

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

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

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.
