First New Marking Tools / Love Them

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

09-07-2013 09:42 PM by 69BBNova | 4 comments »

I ordered these from The Best Things Thursday, they arrived today (Saturday) well packed, no damage… Except for my vintage Stanley No. 98 these are the only woodworking only marking tools I own that are really quality as I expected (hoped)... They have a nice heft to them which is good because I have always like knowing they are in my hand. Light tools never feel right to me… They have a nice balance to them, I don’t know any other way to describe it they just felt ...

UPDATED: Returning the saw.

UPDATED: Returning the saw.

02-24-2014 02:25 PM by JSB | 21 comments »

I have no complaints with this saw. It’s a great buy for the money. I’ve only used it for one project so far so if things change I’ll update this. I doubt they will though. Pros:-Enough power for what what just about anyone will do.-Fence alignment is easy.-Blade alignment is easy, I think they worked out all the problems there. blade to miter slot is easy…still has other problems noted below-Mobile base is smooth.-4” dust collection port. Cons:-none so far...

Dewalt DC845KA Impact Driver

Dewalt DC845KA Impact Driver

10-11-2008 04:11 AM by Will Mego | 2 comments »

Thus far, I love everything about this driver! Faced with a roof job on my folks terribly rotten roof, and recalling the last time I was driving screws through simple plain old pine and how I couldn’t get screw in without stripping it, I decided to bite the bullet, and buy an impact driver. I looked at a few, but decided to splurge and get the 18V dewalt (in a kit, which included the 2 batteries). I’m glad I did. So far, it drives pretty much ANYTHING through ANYTHING. It’...

Cutting Mat

Cutting Mat

10-17-2009 10:14 PM by dustyal | 5 comments »

I originally bought this mat for my mother-in-law who used it for her sewing. My wife also used one for her picture mat cutting. They work well with the rotary cutters and mat cutter. I find it extremely useful for woodworking when laying out projects, doing dry fits and glue ups, etc. I would think it might come in handy for veneer work and other projects where you might want a larger protected surface that won’t mar the finished product. It is hard enough to stay flat and smoot...

Affordable powerful hammer drill

Affordable powerful hammer drill

02-08-2010 03:14 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 4 comments »

This is my first review for this website so forgive me if I don’t quite come up to par (any constructive advice would be appreciated). This was my first hammer drill purchase. I’ve used a Bosch Bulldog and a Milwaukee hammer drill, which are both very impressive tools, but a little too much for me. I didn’t buy this drill for drilling block walls all day long. This is a great hammer drill to keep for DIY home improvement. I put a wire wheel in the chuck and stripped paint o...

Incra - Customer Service

Incra - Customer Service

02-24-2014 08:24 PM by twobyfour16 | 22 comments »

Just a quick review of Incra’s customer service – which I give a resounding 5 stars! I bought one of their table saw router table combo packages back in mid December & just got around to opening up the boxes. I am installing the fence system and router table on a new SawStop PCS that I just picked up this weekend. First of all, their ordering process and shipping were spot-on. Obviously, I should have opened up all of the packages when I received them, but I did not open u...

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

10-21-2014 07:51 PM by gfernandez | 13 comments »

Two years ago I took a woodworking class here in NC with Gregory Paolini and built a bow arm Morris chair (see attached picture). Although there were a few bumps along the way, the main one being he was short an instructor and we all went home with unfinished pieces, it was still a great time and the 6 of us learned a ton of useful woodworking knowledge. Greg was also readily available via phone and email with the many questions I had after the class ended regarding getting my project complet...

My table saw could not have broken at a worse time, or a better time.

My table saw could not have broken at a worse time, or a better time.

02-29-2008 10:48 PM by Tom Adamski | 19 comments »

Last August, I was starting a new project; an oak fireplace mantel for a friend. I guess my 10+ year old Delta (cheap inboard motor model) could not take the strain and let out what souded like a high pitched scream and stopped with a puff of white smoke. After a few explatives and a sudden realization that my project was on hold, I went inside and started looking online for a new saw. I read so many reviews, my head started to spin, but I knew I wanted another Delta. If it is good enough for...

Master Woodworking Plans

Master Woodworking Plans

10-12-2008 08:45 AM by disgruntled | 8 comments »

The online digital purchase of the Master Woodworking Plans turned out to be a great disappointment.Their website advertises in a very deceiving way plenty of wood working plans that in reality are just a collections of outside links to other websites in cyberspace where one has to sift through more ads to finally realize you can buy their plans. I was very disappointed since the same result can be achieved by searching in any search engine and leave this review so others might be able to r...
