This a great feature to have moving a heavy piece of machinery like a table saw. Assembly was a piece of cake. There are a lot of nuts and bolts so it does take a bit of time. Rolls my new 340 lb plus G0661 table saw very easily. Can be adjusted from 20” x 20” to 29 1/2” x 29 1/2”. Can support 700 lbs. Heavy duty castors. Nice fit and finish.

Product Rating, sort of, Merchant Rating for sure

Product Rating, sort of, Merchant Rating for sure

01-24-2014 01:46 AM by kajunkraft | 10 comments »

I recently purchased the Grizzly G0452Z jointer. It has the spiral cutterhead. Assembly was pretty easy, took about an hour. Directions were pretty good. Condition of all parts, finish, etc. was fine. The machine does an awesome job of flattening, as it is supposed to, and is very quiet (relative to the bladed versions). So, in my opinion this is a great machine. What I really want to comment on, however, is Grizzly’s customer service. This machine came in two boxes. Box 1 ...

Good planer so far

Good planer so far

09-02-2014 12:37 AM by Mimeda | 10 comments »

Hello everybody, this is my first review on this forum. I am a hobbyist woodworker, just working on small projects late at night or during weekends and learning on the way for the past 2-3 years. I started just with a bunch of hand tools and gradually evolved to buy a few indispensable tools. I bought this planer from Amazon, total price including shipping at my door in 2 days $299. As seen below it arrived in a sturdy box, no dents or scratches. After removing some styrofoam and pr...

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Power Tool Review

07-20-2008 07:30 AM by toolman | 4 comments »

As a woodworker, you need to produce a nice surface for a variety of reasons. Knowing this, we decided to test an orbital sander for this power tool review. We found a Dewalt Random Orbital Sander on sale as a factory reconditioned tool, so we thought we would give this a test. Our first impression was good. If you have been following our other reviews you know we love carrying cases, and the Dewalt random orbital sander has its own case. There is even room to pack some sand discs, alo...

Extra Large drum sander

Extra Large drum sander

03-20-2009 10:12 PM by Tony | 18 comments »

I have just acquired this beast of a drum sander from Jet, minus the stand. The installation and initial setting up was very easy, even single handed, but be warned the main part of the unit is very heavy 85kg (187lbs), then add the extension tables and you are talking about 100kg (220lbs). (A similar unit to the Performax 22- 44 Plus Drum Sander, see the review posted by GaryK Please note that this is a European version, the drum sander specs may be different in your country. The i...

1/2 lock miter router bit

1/2 lock miter router bit

10-19-2010 09:21 PM by Edward83 | 13 comments »

I saw this while looking through the router bits at Lowes. I never heard of of a lock miter router bit and feeling adventurous I decided to drop the thirty dollars for it in hopes of upping my abilities to build a better quality box. I read the instructions and set it up in my router table. The instructions suggest having a few pieces to practice on, and believe me they weren’t kidding. It says that you can use it on boards up to 3/4 in. but I would do it a little shy. The nature o...

PORTER-CABLE 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw with Stand

PORTER-CABLE 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw with Stand

02-13-2011 10:39 PM by FJPetruso | 10 comments »

I have a 24” Delta / Rockwell scroll saw but found it too hard to change blades for scroll work & has too much vibration. When I decided to get a bit more serious about scroll work I checked outquite a few brands & “off”-brands. Yes I’d love to have a New Dewalt or Delta but you need at least $600 to get a new one. I wanted a saw for under $200. There’s quite a few out there… Most of them crappy. But the best one I found in that price range is ...

Tenryu GM-25540-2 Gold Medal 10" 40T General Purpose Saw Blade (Full kerf)

Tenryu GM-25540-2 Gold Medal 10" 40T General Purpose Saw Blade (Full kerf)

11-04-2011 04:54 PM by Allanwoodworks | 9 comments »

Wow, is all I can say about this product. I did not see a review for the Full Kerf version her on the site and just wanted to add my two cents. I finally decided that it’s time to upgrade my table saw blade for my 3HP grizzly cabinet saw. For the past year I have been using a Irwin 40 tooth Marathon blade and it did wall, at least that what I thought. I have a Woodmizer saw mill and dry my own lumber, so I try to make everything 8/4 and as large as possible so that I can cut it down to siz...

Amazing Saw For The Price........ Minus the Insert Plate

Amazing Saw For The Price........ Minus the Insert Plate

03-23-2012 05:50 PM by WoodyPete | 8 comments »

This is an amazing saw for the price in my opinion. The reviews written by ‘LafayetteJack’ & ‘bobdobbs’ are dead on with my assessment of this saw. I’m just adding my 2 cents to the review of the product…...... I have no financial interest in Porter Cable or Lowes, and my woodworking experience is beginner – intermediate and is simply my hobby. I purchased this saw for many of the same reasons stated by the other reviewers: 1) This is the ...
