Problems and fixes

One problem is that because its made of 2 pieces of plastic glued together it will break apart at the seam. You can try to glue it back together but it soon comes apart again. (This is an update 40 days after the first post. Walmart sells a 3pk of generic super glue for 89 cents. I glued it up and clamped it lightly over night. It seems to be holding up fine.) Other than that, I love this thing. It will move the fence thousandths at a time, allowing you to sneak up on a precise cut. If ...

Another 1023 RLW review.

Another 1023 RLW review.

322 days ago by ksicon | 8 comments »

So let me just say thanks to the community, I don’t normally post anything anywhere but this community was very helpful in making my decision so I feel the need to give back. Hope this helps anyone looking to buy this saw. After trolling these boards and agonizing for about a year I pulled the trigger on a 1023 RLW. Also, so you know where I’m coming from I spent the majority of my childhood learning and projecting on my grandfathers delta unisaw w/bis fence and worked in a sma...

Many times more useful than I expected.  Weight your uses to figure out if a-la-carte works better

Many times more useful than I expected. Weight your uses to figure out if a-la-carte works better

I purchased this Rockler Bench Cookie set as an impulse buy about a year ago. This purchase has proven to be my best impulse buy to date. Everyone in my family loves using the bench cookies, including the wifey and my 2 year old daughter who keeps trying to steal them, so she can do curls. I’m going to split my review into the 4 components. What I will say, is that while the set is awesome, if you find you only want the cookies and/or the cones (like me), you may be better off buying...

Pulls nails and staples without damaging wood!

Pulls nails and staples without damaging wood!

2337 days ago by Hawgnutz | 0 comments »

this is the BEST tool I have found for nail removal! And wit husing old salvaged barnwood, nail removal is teh first and sometimes most time consuming process for me. This tool grips the head or the shank of the nail or staple and the grip gets stronger as the force is applied! If the head of a nail is stripped off, it makes no difference to this tool. It will grasp the bare shank and pull it out—either from the front or the back! I thinlk this has reduced my nail-removing time n...

Great for uneven floors

Great for uneven floors

1744 days ago by DannyBoy | 8 comments »

From the start, I needed to make sure that my saw would be movable. With a small shop, floor space is at a premium and it only makes things difficult to admit that my floor is not at all level and even. This system took care of both of those needs. The casters are well built and work well on the uneven floor. Plus, once you are done moving the unit, you flip it down onto it’s own feet right into your floors sweet-spot. Two bits of advice: First, you probably won’t matc...

Hitachi Cordless Drill

Hitachi Cordless Drill

1629 days ago by Kjuly | 21 comments »

My old Delta cordless drill, drilled it’s last hole after four plus years of service. It was a 14 volt drill that served me well. The drill is in decent shape but the batteries would not hold a charge long enough to drive a 2? drywall screw. To replace the two batteries would cost over $75.00. I do not want to put that kind of money in to batteries with the life of the drill motor uncertain. Time to go shopping for a new cordless drill. First, lets look at what I need in a drill and ho...

Good qaulity cutter

Good qaulity cutter

1508 days ago by thatwoodworkingguy | 5 comments »

I purchased this bit to speed up and simplify my box making. To install the lid and base it calls for a 1/4 inch groove around the top and bottom of all sides. Instead of fiddling with the table saw and instead of taking the time to install a dado head I figured it seemed reasonable to have a router with this bit dedicated.This is my first experience with Eagle America and it wont be my last. The shipping was incredible. I only got the standard shipping and I ordered it on Wednesday of last w...

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Up for review is a scaled-down version of the Veritas edge jointing block plane. I recently purchased this miniature as a novelty item but found it to be a very effective tool for small projects. Like the miniature Veritas shoulder plane, this tool is made from investment cast steel. Precisely machined on its sole and integral fence, the plane also features a nicely flattened iron which sharpens easily. On the whole, fit and finish is top notch as it is on all Veritas products. After...

Everyone should have about 17 of these in their shop

Everyone should have about 17 of these in their shop

OK, a spring clamp is hardly a tool that dreams are made of. But a few days ago it occured to me that I’ve had a pair of these exact clamps in my shop for a few years now. I’ve probably used them 483 times since then. Very strong, very good quality. A couple days later I found myself in the HD for an extension cord, and decided to pick up a few more spring clamps while I was there. I could not remember how much I paid for the original pair, so I was pleasantly surprised to find th...

My Grizzy Experience

My Grizzy Experience

1088 days ago by Danc333 | 38 comments »

Hello, This is my first post, but I wanted to talk about my experience so far. After much research I decided to buy a Grizzly 715 hybrid table saw. It arrived well packed and in excellent condition. I took my time setting it up and installing my TS-LS positioner with router table. It took me a couple weeks to finish, working a couple hours at night. I have to say over all I am very impressed with the saw. I like the build quality and the fit and finish are very good. The cast iron table is le...
