BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

02-19-2015 09:54 PM by steve421 | 5 comments »

I am writing my review in order to help people with their decision on a purchase of this unit. Before I begin I had some reservations about this and was unsure about making this investment, Even though it is an economical unit, 350 to 400 bucks is a lot to throw away on a piece of garbage that doesn;t work correctly Anyways I am more than pleased with this purchase. I never give 5 stars because when we write these posts we have no way of determining on how long something will last. I may writ...

Nice Product, But Fantastic Customer Service

Nice Product, But Fantastic Customer Service

06-09-2017 11:13 PM by jonah | 3 comments »

This is one of those increasingly rare situations where a company simply blows you away with great customer service. I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with how Yost has treated me. I bought four 12” parallel clamps during a recent Amazon “deal of the day” promotion. With the discount, I felt like it was worth a shot on an unknown brand of clamps. I paid about ~$100 with tax for the four clamps. I’ve always wanted to have some 12” parallel clamps ...

Getting on the G0771z Bandwagon

Getting on the G0771z Bandwagon

08-23-2017 11:35 PM by NeophyteGrant | 10 comments »

I lurked for months on Lumberjocks before making this purchase. Always the researcher, I had my reservations about some of the QC and manufacture complaints. I feel comfortable saying—as seems the consensus—the G0771z is a good bargain. I don’t think you’ll find a better saw for the money, and with the Z model, released at some point last year, you get the T-style B-meyer fence (the fence face does have 3 total tracks—2 on the face and one on the top). That was o...

Drill Press Compound Vise

Drill Press Compound Vise

12-28-2017 05:52 PM by John Smith | 4 comments »

I don’t normally review tools as there are so many and every person has different expectations of the product, based on their use. I purchased this “entry level” Shop Fox drill press vise a few months ago off of E-Bay.several vendors sell basically the same thing, all come from China or other Asian country.once I got all the grease out of it and got it dialed in, it is very simple to operate.you may have to redrill the bolt pattern to fit your table. all in all, this is ...

solid joiner for the price

solid joiner for the price

02-04-2008 11:41 PM by KDL | 12 comments »

I bought this joiner two years ago after talking to a few woodworkers/salesmen I trust. I have used it on two large cabinets, a small table, and a small sideboard. On the whole, I think it’s a good machine for a very fair price. There are higher-end joiners that are, I’m sure, really slick. But for the money, this is a good tool, and when I bought it, it was definitely the best in its class. It comes with: The joiner, dust bag, wrenches, regular and face-frame blades, manua...

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

02-23-2009 08:25 AM by Jim | 6 comments »

I had heard favoable reports of these blades and when I actually found them in a store here on Maui I was shocked. Usually we don’t get to see new products so quickly here. Anyway, I tried them and was very impressed. They cut on the up and the down. No to very little tearing even of veneered plywood. One less thing to think about—do I draw, and hence cut, on the bottom or the top of the plywood?!They’re a little thick so you can’t do tight turns, but other than tha...

StrongHold Clamps

StrongHold Clamps

08-03-2009 02:23 AM by dustbunny | 6 comments »

I accidentally posted this review under the blog section, and thought I better correct it. I was looking for a clamp that could hold a glue up of two 45 deg strips of wood to make a block. Basically two triangles glued together to make a square. All the woodworking site searches produced nothing. Then I came across these clamps on a welding website. http://www.stronghandtools.com/products/pdt_img/pgv_pic.html I ordered three of them from my local welding supply store to see how t...

Bought one this evening!

Bought one this evening!

04-23-2010 02:06 AM by Knothead62 | 10 comments »

Based on the reviews here on LJ forum and a good review in WOOD magazine, I took the plunge and bought one at Lowe’s this evening. I had saved up some money and have it in the garage, ready to open, read the manual (real men don’t read the manual), build a stand for it and make lots of wood dust or chips, whatever it makes. I’m going to plane some scrap pine to get used to it and make any necessary adjustments . The LOML wants a dining table. I have a stack of pecan that...

Blade Alignment (front to back)

Blade Alignment (front to back)

06-06-2011 11:08 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

After having this saw for about 9 months, and using the heck out of it, I have noticed that the blade is not at 90- degrees – front to back. That means is is leaning back about 1/32 of an inch on the top side vs. the bottom (at the table). This was most noticable yesterday when cutting a 3-D compound cut and the cutouts were different size one side vs. the other. Now the almost useless product manual is of not help with this problem and previous attempts with Porter Cable have also been...

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

10-15-2011 11:07 PM by patcollins | 6 comments »

I bought this drill at a Direct Tools outlet store in Hagerstown MD, they sell reconditioned Ridgid and Ryobi tools. Usually the only way you can tell that it is a reconditioned tool is the reconditioned stamp branded on the tool but this one had definate cosmetic wear. I wasn’t too pleased when I got it home and opened the box that it looked like it had been used on a construction site. Well, then I used it and WOW what an upgrade over the 12V B&D I had been using. The Ridgi...
