Dewalt DCD970KL review

Dewalt DCD970KL review

02-14-2011 05:00 PM by phtools | 5 comments »

I bought this drill to replace my Dewalt DC925, which fell off a roof and landed in a big nasty mud hole, I just figured the drill was toast and ordered a new one, saved the 925 for salvageable parts. The DCD950 and the DCD970 are the EXACT same drill except the clutch ring, which is black on the 950 and silver on the 970. The difference is the batteries that are included 950 has the XRPs and 970 has the new NANO’s(lithium-ion). OK, back to the comparison Pros of the DCD970/950 VS. the ...

Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

06-27-2011 09:24 PM by Ryan Bruzan | 6 comments »

I picked up a nice, 12’ long piece of red oak S4S for ripping down into smaller stock. I needed 12’ lengths, but I also realized how much control I did not have if I tried to feed the board into my table saw from 11’ away from the blade. I didn’t think about handling and ripping it in my small shop. I mean, I have the length, but I did not want to have to crawl under the long boards to puzzle the ripping process together. After pondering the process for a moment for...

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

10-30-2011 05:23 PM by moonls | 20 comments »

I’d been using my Craftsman 16” scroll saw off and on since 2003, and recently, with a renewed interest in scroll work, I started trying to improve my skill. I was becoming frustrated with keeping the very small pinless blades secured in the holders and maintaining proper tension. The other big problem was vibration. Having researched the different saws on the market, it became apparent that the Dewalt was the best rated of the bunch in my price range. I ordered one on-line ...

Great starter value

Great starter value

03-23-2012 03:43 AM by BerBer5985 | 17 comments »

I bought this to try when I first started out in hand tools as my first hand plane, basically because it was $12. I figured if it was horrible for $12, it would make a great paper weight. My expectations were not high. Let me be clear from the get go, this is not a LN or LV plane. It may compare with an older stanley, on stanleys worst day of milling, but not horrible for $12. Also, please keep in mind that this review is strictly based off the fact that for $12 and a little time, you can...

Rikon 70-450 EVS Lathe Review: Solid Performance, Cost Saving Finish

01-23-2014 04:53 PM by JamesVavra | 9 comments »

The full review, with more photos, is posted on my blog at http://www.artistryinwood.info/?p=291 The text of the review follows: Rikon 70-450 20” EVS Lathe Review First, a little background on how I landed on this lathe: I started out a little over five years ago on a little 10” benchtop model from Harbor Freight. That got me hooked on turning and I quickly realized I needed bigger gear. Within a few months I had upgraded to a used Jet 1442VS. The Jet is a 14” x 42” 1HP lathe that we...

Great introduction to Japanese hand tools!

Great introduction to Japanese hand tools!

08-30-2014 02:40 PM by StumpyNubs | 3 comments »

Who doesn’t like pine? It’s inexpensive, abundant, it looks great and the smell reminds me of the air freshener in my car. But the best thing about pine is how easy it is to work with hand tools, making it the ideal material for a project done in the old-timey style. And that’s just what you’ll see in the new video series from Fine Woodworking: “Country Pine Hutch with Andrew Hunter”. ( For more articles, videos and woodworking goodness check out our new website at Stumpynubs.com! ) And...

when i first used my new festool saw i didn’t really realize it’s full potential but after 7 years of heavy use i have made very difficult cuts that would require jigs and or special table saw setups and router setups a thing of the past.i have made very long compound angle cuts upside down,vertical and horizontal,stack cut whole bundles of exotic veneers and stitch them up with no blow out and with perfect seams. the plunge feature and its stop give you the ability to cut out sla...

Solid on the outside, issues with accuracy and precision

Solid on the outside, issues with accuracy and precision

04-14-2015 03:50 AM by Rick M. | 14 comments »

From the outside in … The packaging was attractive and consistent with other products sold by iGaging (makes no difference but shows the company takes some pride in their products). Inside the retail box was a sturdy white cardboard box that contained the inclinometer, a nice storage pouch, the instructions, a 9V battery, and a tiny screwdriver. I expected the AccuRemote to be made of plastic but it’s actually a cast metal, possibly zinc, quite sturdy and heavier than expected. Th...

Dust collector cfm to mod changes

Dust collector cfm to mod changes

07-05-2015 04:13 PM by Monkeyman1 | 19 comments »

This is ment to give and idea of what happens to air flow when we do mods to a dust collector. I have been getting along with my vacuum ok, but time to upgrade. After stalking (lol) this site for a few months and checking Craig’s list all the time, I decided to buy a HF dust collector. I feel for the price it is very tough to beat.This is a very unscientific test and due to either bad jack on my cellphone (new Cat S-50) or due to the cheapness ($40) of a ABM-100 anemometer. This is men...
