Great table saw for the money

Great table saw for the money

08-03-2012 10:04 AM by chadgr | 3 comments »

I bought this saw as a replacement for another cheapo saw which packed up on me :( I only paid £170 for the saw and after putting it together it ran fin and everything was set up apart from the blade not being parlell to the miter slots, however a quick turn with a screw driver fixed this. My only suggestion would be is to buy another saw with because the that came with only lasts a few cuts before requiring sharpening or other operations. All in all a good buy. Chad Aged 14

DeWalt Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

06-01-2013 06:59 PM by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...

Shaper Story

Shaper Story

12-29-2013 12:53 AM by soapmaker | 9 comments »

To review my story so far, I acquired an older grizzly shaper with only the 1/2 inch spindle. I ordered the other two. When I installed them they both had runout like a bent drill bit. I I initially thought the spindle cartridge may have some sort of issue after I installed the first set of spindles. I borrowed a spindle off of my work shaper and it lined up good with a runout of .004” So I took the first set of spindles and checked them on my work machine where they still didn’t improve. So...

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

07-04-2014 11:30 AM by Ajs73 | 8 comments »

Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,brand new in box for $40. I don’t haveanything to compare it with but I’m amazedat how much dust accumulates on the outerfilter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. innerfilters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anythingthat keeps dust out of my lungs is worthbuying. It’s a perfect size for my smallbasement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160& I believ...

DONT BUY B&D BLADES

DONT BUY B&D BLADES

02-02-2008 08:44 PM by teenagewoodworker | 6 comments »

i thought that i could buy a few black and decker blades for my new jig saw and they were cheap enough that i could stock up so i did. they cost 2$ for 2 blades at Lowe’s. i am going to spring for the more expensive Bosch, and Milwaukee blades next time i buy. the blades were wandering so much that by the end of the cut i would have a 20 degree angle running all along the edge of the board. i will not buy black and decker jigsaw blades or any other black and decker blades again

Delta Heavy Duty Precision Miter Guage 36-946

Delta Heavy Duty Precision Miter Guage 36-946

06-10-2008 12:15 AM by stanley2 | 16 comments »

I have only seen this miter guage on ebay – never in a store nor in a Delta catalogue. When you search the product number on the Delta website it only comes up as an accessory to their hybrid tablesaw. The ebayer who lists it sells one a week and I lowballed it for 2 years before I finally got it for $80, including shipping. In the last two weeks they have sold for less than my $50. What an improvement for my vintage unisaw! The design is excellent including an eccentric lock scr...

Freud LU87R010 10” thin kerf 24 tooth rip blade ROCKS!!!

Freud LU87R010 10” thin kerf 24 tooth rip blade ROCKS!!!

02-19-2009 01:26 AM by klpete45 | 9 comments »

I bought this blade last year when I had a considerable quantity of rough-cut walnut to process. My saw at that time was a Ryobi BT3000. While it did manage to rip full 2”thick boards with a 40 tooth combo blade, it did struggle and left a lot of burn marks. So I did a little internet research and settled on the Freud blade since the manufacturer claimed “This blade gives new life to underpowered table saws…..”and the fact that I could get it online for under $50 made it hard to resist. I fre...

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

07-30-2009 03:04 AM by jerryz | 6 comments »

I bought this at my WoodCraft Store and have installed it my workshop.I can attest that it stops rusting on my Table Saw and the beauty is that this protection will last 2 years.Also the Capsule VC6-2 will protect a 905 ft3 Volume with a radius of 6 ft so any tools within this area are also protected.I have included the page on the woodcraft and the manufacturer info.I checked other suppliers and found that woodcraft had the better price. http://www.zerust.com/product/ict-vapor-capsules ...

It's made of plastic !

It's made of plastic !

06-03-2011 03:49 PM by richgreer | 18 comments »

I use my digital calipers a lot and I tend to be hard on them. I’ve dropped them and poured stuff on them and it seems like I am buying new ones often. I saw this particular caliper on sale for half price – only $14.99. I didn’t need one at the time, but I know that I will eventually need another one so “why not?”. I never imagined that it would be made of plastic. It has a very cheap, flimsy feel to it and it does not have the normal little turn whe...

Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

Ridgid R86006 drill only combo

02-28-2012 06:45 PM by cliffton | 3 comments »

First this was an upgrade from my 15 year old Craftsman 14.4 volt cordless drill. I was unable to source batteries for it and it finally died. That being said I got this at my local HD with a 20% Harbor freight coupon and 10% veteran discount. Taking it out of the box, my first impression was that it was very light and didn’t seem “hefty” enough. That being said, I noticed right away that the batteries had charge indicators on them and they both were at 2 lights out of 4...
