an article and my review on the forbes top 10 most dangerous tools

1634 days ago by BOB67CAM | 30 comments »

The Ten Most Dangerous Power Tools Forbes magazine recently published a list of some of the most dangerous power tools on the market. While we definitely are power tool advocates, we also want to promote safety on our site. These tools are not toys, and users must understand the potential harm they can do if not used properly! do not aim at what you do not plan to kill POWER NAILERS: They make short work of framing, but power nailers also send 37,000 people a year to emergency rooms acc...

A picture is worth two hudred fifty words

A picture is worth two hudred fifty words

I almost ordered some of these today, but didn’t when I saw they wanted to charge thirteen bucks for shipping two of them. Later, going through my jig supplies, there they were. These things are small. Very small. So small, they wouldn’t break the one ounce mailing barrier. Still, it would have cost thirteen dollars to ship them. Did I mention that yet? To be fair, they are very handy critters to have around, since they do their assigned task well, which is to fit in T tracks...

Very nice saw

Very nice saw

1093 days ago by funchuck | 4 comments »

I was reluctant to buy this saw because the reviews online did not seem too positive. The main complaint was the handle, which was said to be uncomfortable. But, I decided to buy it anyways because I didn’t think I’d use this saw as much as my smaller saws. When I received the saw, the handle felt much better than I expected. In fact, I think it was comfortable. The handle is not as nice as the Veritas saws I have though, so I knocked off 1 star for that. I ripped some p...

I bought this planer about a year and a half ago. I wanted to upgrade my 13” lunchbox planer and figured that there was no sense just upgrading to 15”. I can’t remember what lead to my decision to go with the Powermatic over other brands. The planer is heavily built and came with large, cast iron extension tables. Built in wheels made it easy to move around, thankfully because it is almost 800lbs! It also comes with an extra gear sprocket and gear chain to change the feedi...

I’ve been using the 12V Rigid cordless you can see in the photo for quite some time. I figured a cordless drill is a cordless drill, but once I held this Makita in my hand, I was forever changed. Pros: Power: This little guy is loaded with torque. Trigger speed control: The range from just barely turning to fully wound up is all accessible. The trigger has good resistance and feedback. Once you’ve found the sweet spot for the task at hand, it’s easy to repeat....

Works well after you work out the kinks

Works well after you work out the kinks

I got this so I can make my own vises. I also bought some 1 1/4” dowels to go along with it. This does require some practice to use. The instructions are very sparse and the construction was kind of cheap. The guide that is screwed onto the threader was installed incorrectly so it was difficult to remove. The threader had some scratches and small gouges on it. The tap was fine.I tried it right out of the box. I followed the instruction, soaked the dowel in some BLO and then start...

Great... but...

Great... but...

1748 days ago by greggr | 12 comments »

I bought a pair of these a few months ago after checking with my supervisor for approval. They work great, especially the Mp3 feature. With an el-cheapo generic Mp3 they will play for about 10 hours until the Mp3 battery needs a recharge. The sound is excellent and blocks out most of the surrounding noise. Herein lies the “but”. Unfortunately my employer has reversed on approval after several other people started using the same unit. Their reasoning (and I guess I agree r...
