Does what it is designed to do

Recently Kreg contacted me and asked if it would be ok to send me one of their new Foreman machines to mess around with. They did not ask for a review or ask for me to return it. I’ve been messing around with it for about a month now and can’t find any flaws or problems with the machine so I will give it a 5 star rating. It is obviously much faster than using one of their clamp down jigs. Even without dust collection the chip management is nice. I think this is geared toward so...

Rikon Mortiser with XY Table

Rikon Mortiser with XY Table

01-01-2015 06:07 PM by panofish | 11 comments »

I really wanted to give it 4 stars, but the inconsistency of the chuck and the weak motor left me wishing for more.If I had $1200 to burn … I’d prefer the large standing Powermatic mortiser, but unfortunately I have to make due with this $300 mortiser from Rikon. The table and clamping mechanism are great however. I made a video review on youtube… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3ta3OTK5Wg

Good for Small Jobs

Good for Small Jobs

01-24-2015 03:20 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I bought this band saw three years ago as part of the 3 benchtop tools that I felt I needed. I don’t remember shopping around much, but it was just before my surgery, so I may have had better things to remember. I do know that the price of the saw at Lowes was a deciding factor. Out of the box I only had to install the table with four bolts (supplied.) The tools come with the saw for any adjustments you need to make. You get a metric wrench (10mm/13mm) and an 1/8 inch (by my caliper)...

Scroll saw comfort knobs

Scroll saw comfort knobs

06-13-2017 01:29 AM by Woodmaster1 | 8 comments »

I ordered the comfort knobs after seeing them in some YouTube videos. They are everything you would want in an add on accessory. It took less than ten minutes to trim the original knobs to make them fit. They are very easy on the fingers compared to the stock knobs. Every bit a five star product.

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

Striplox Connectors --pic heavy.

12-29-2017 02:10 AM by Walker | 6 comments »

I’m writing this review because there doesn’t seem to be very much information around on the Striplox woodworking products. I stumbled upon these connectors while designing a future project. I wanted a modern look with completely hidden joints. It appears they are a fairly new product. To my delight they were available at my local Woodcraft store and are relatively cheap, so I purchased a pack to play around with. The clerk was actually surprised they had them and wasn’...

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

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.

03-03-2009 07:16 AM by TraumaJacques | 0 comments »

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...
