Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

10-15-2011 11:07 PM by patcollins | 6 comments »

I bought this drill at a Direct Tools outlet store in Hagerstown MD, they sell reconditioned Ridgid and Ryobi tools. Usually the only way you can tell that it is a reconditioned tool is the reconditioned stamp branded on the tool but this one had definate cosmetic wear. I wasn’t too pleased when I got it home and opened the box that it looked like it had been used on a construction site. Well, then I used it and WOW what an upgrade over the 12V B&D I had been using. The Ridgi...

Powerful corded drill for serious users

Powerful corded drill for serious users

11-24-2008 08:45 PM by ferstler | 0 comments »

I picked this drill up at Lowe’s for $119 quite some time ago when my wife decided I would build an extensive wooden walkway network out in our yard. Since such things are going to have to be built out of pressure-treated wood I knew I would need a powerful drill to push 1/2-inch bits through wet lumber. I had already drilled lumber like that for a deck job some years back, and I will say that the 3/4 amp drills I had on hand to do the work were stressed by the project considerably. ...

Cheap and easy rust remover

Cheap and easy rust remover

08-17-2013 04:30 AM by Rick M. | 20 comments »

Cost: $1 for 24 oz. at The Dollar Store. Tried this on a few rusty nails that I kept for who knows what reason and on a shiny new zinc covered screw. Put them in a jar with just enough Works to cover and it started bubbling right away. I left the jar outside and went to dinner. About 5 hours later I remembered to check on them and they were rust and zinc free. I rinsed everything in water and dried with a paper towel. This stuff does create some nasty fumes and it’ll wash the pupils ...

Great mid range dust collecter.

Great mid range dust collecter.

06-01-2010 06:55 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 7 comments »

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

Good little dust collector.

Good little dust collector.

03-02-2013 08:34 AM by Addicted | 6 comments »

I was looking for a dust collector for the Ridgid R4512 table saw I just purchased. My previous saw wasn’t set up for any dust collection, so I have been fighting table saw dust for years. Don’t laugh too hard yet, because I also purchased a DELTA 50-760 to actually do my dust collection with. I saw this little PSI DC660P when I was doing my online shopping, and decided to pick one of these up. Online shopping can be dangerous to the budget. The PSI unit arived first, so ...

Aggressive sander has great dust collection at a price.

Aggressive sander has great dust collection at a price.

I haven’t seen any LJ reviews of the RAS. I don’t have a lot of experience with it yet but I’ll share my initial thoughts and update the review later. I bought this sander to hog out rocking chair seats, legs … I used standard 4.5” grinders with abrasive disks or donuts before I got the RAS115. The units without dust collection ports make a big mess very fast. I was looking for an aggressive sander with good dust collection. The RAS is comfortable to ho...

Best kept cleaning secret

Best kept cleaning secret

04-04-2010 02:01 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 24 comments »

Stop wasting your money on those so-called cleaners that require you to mortgage your tools just to get few ounces of water and soap in a fancy package. EASY-OFF has been around a long time with a proven track record.It comes in several different skin removing flavors and I guarantee you’ll be amazed at the results.It’ll make your saw blades; router bits, forstner bits and anything that can’t be recognized anymore look like it’s brand new.Oh yeah, make sure you wear gloves.

Harbor Freight Carbide Faced Carving Disc  for 4 1/2" Grinder

Harbor Freight Carbide Faced Carving Disc for 4 1/2" Grinder

03-15-2014 03:20 AM by Jim Jakosh | 11 comments »

I had to carve 2” off the diameter of 4 1/2” pistachio tree that was 50” long and needed something to take off a lot of material without loading up or wearing out. So I tried one of the half donut shaped carving wheels from HF that has pieces of carbide embedded in it. I usually don’t like the cutting tools or sand paper from HF, but this carving wheel is one great abrasive tool. It cut all that wood away and is still sharp enough to do it again. I hate to say that I ...

Milescraft push stick kit

Milescraft push stick kit

01-26-2010 05:04 AM by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the milescraft push stick kit. In episode 22 I built a push stick and that worked pretty good but I always had a hard time getting the wood to go straight against the fence. I got this push stick kit from milescraft .You get a depth gauge and a base with the push stick. The way it is designed you have a lot downward pressure which helps to control the wood much better then the one I used to use.
