Once You Try Them - You Can't Live Without Them

i just got my new worktunes headphones and i have got to say that i love them. they are wonderful to use. the ones that i got have just an am/fm radio but you can also get ones to hook up to your ipod. the radio ones cost 50 and i think the ipod ones are around 80 or 90. they are very heavy duty and seem like they will last a lot longer than the other pairs that i have got before. they are nice to have when using the table saw and the miter saw but where they really shines is while ripping a ...

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

I don’t know about you but I use screwdrivers allot around the shop. The problem is that there are so many different type and size of screws that I need several on hand at all time. They inevitably fall on the floor roll under the bench or simply disappear or blend in the mess on the bench top. Over the years I have bought several “multi “screwdrivers and they pretty much all were garbage. Now this one I must say is the “best screwdriver I have ever owned and will never buy an...

Low price but lacking in important features

Low price but lacking in important features

08-07-2009 02:05 AM by jake | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw due to the DeWalt name, reasonable price and past experience with DeWalt power tools. While this tool is powerful enough and seems well built, it lacks features that make it’s performance only average at best. The most frustrating aspect is that it lacks a blower and the wood debris from the cut obscures the sight line/markings that you try to follow. It is surprising as my last jig saw was sold by Walmart under their own private label at the time called Quantum Pro...

Harbor frieght multi function tool

01-07-2010 10:41 PM by Hooligan__j | 8 comments »

Let me start by saying I bought this tool based on a review on Lumberjocks, and even though I am rating it 3 stars overall, that is only because fractions of stars are not allowed. (I would rate it 3.95 stars.) I purchased this tool mostly out of a totally new medical condition found in woodworkers around the globe: IsawaninfomercialforthefeinmodelbutcantafforditbuthismightworksoreallywanttotryitandseeifsomethinglikethisisusefulsoIcanjustifyspendingthemoneyforthefeintothewifeitis I used...

I purchased this Panel saw in November 09 because I have a Laguna HD band saw already. So based on buying previus tools of Laguna I thought they made all good machinery. Well, not so!. When putting this saw together and installing the extended table and tighting the allen set screws it begin to warp the main body of saw so I had to back off, weird uh? I could not understand what was going on with this. Then the main support arm had issues such as you slide the table back and forth you could f...

Fantastic Affordable Blades from Bosch

Fantastic Affordable Blades from Bosch

02-04-2011 02:46 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 3 comments »

I picked this 60 tooth ATB from Menards about nine months ago for $60. The blade is not thin kerf, she can be resharpened, she’s balanced and quiet. Crosscuts have been clean and smooth with minimal tearout. I can’t afford Forrest and I wanted something with some beef to it for making crosscuts, Bosch has fit the bill. They have a full line of “Pro Series” blades which I have decided to invest in.

Works well and Comfortable

I got this for my daughter from highlandwoodworking.com as she likes to help in the shop and will cover her ears with her hands everytime a power tool is turned on (very good). I want her to be able to help with jigsaw cuts and sanding and having the shopvac on while working with both so this is a must to have her focused on the work and not on the noise. The ear protection can be lengthened or shortened and the range can accommodate a 3-4 y/o on the short end and a small-medium adult on t...

Well I guess you get what you pay for. AT $16 one shouldn’t complain much but placed and a some what light cabinet you would think that they would work just a little better than they do. I got them because that would fit my application but I didn’t expect them to be as bad as they are. I can barely move the router table with them installed. I think that they are just torquing under and rubbing but the way they are made there isn’t much that could be done . Time to re-th...

I was in need of a drill press but I was short on funds, and after searching around here and other places I decided to go with this unit. Having been burned a couple times before with smaller power tools, I was a bit leery about buying anything big from Harbor Freight, but most of the reviews I saw were more or less favorable so I went for it. When I went to the store to buy it, it was on sale for $239 (reg price of $299) and the cashier let me use my 20% off coupon (which I am pretty sure ...

 Laguna LT18 3000 Bandsaw - Very Solid Saw

Laguna LT18 3000 Bandsaw - Very Solid Saw

01-07-2014 02:59 AM by Woodwrestler | 14 comments »

I have read so many reviews trashing Laguna that I had a hard time buying one of their tools. However, after doing a ton of research I ended up buying the LT18 3000. I did a ton of sifting through various options. Almost bought a Rikon 18, Minimax S45 ( just waiting to hear the barrage of you should have bought the MM16 the mystical beast of all bandsaws ) and also took a hard look at the Felder N4400. Anyway, the wife liked the Laguna we saw at Woodcraft and that always makes things easi...
