For the money, not a bad saw.

For the money, not a bad saw.

01-20-2015 09:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 12 comments »

I bought this saw several years ago as my first table saw. I shopped around for what I could afford and decided that this was the one I wanted. In no way to I regret that decision. Coming into the hobby from the ground up I wanted a saw that had all its parts. I would have been pretty clueless about any Craigslist buy as to features, missing pieces, etc. Aside from the metal stand, there was no assembly necessary to get this saw up and running. Everything was aligned properly and has served...

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

10-17-2010 04:49 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics”  By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

If you are interested in carving Woodspirits, and do not want to buy an entire library on the subject or you are looking for your first book on the subject—buy this book. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the most comprehensive book I have read or own, on the subject. I have all sorts of Woodspirit books, from a variety of publishers, and authors. It seems to me that no book ever has all the information I need – until now. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the abs...

The PS 31 has quickly replaced my Bosch 18v as my everyday drill. I could not have been more surprised by the performance. Initial Impressions The case that comes with it is not as robust as the traditional Bosch tool case. It is made from a soft canvas-like material but the construction seems sturdy enough. I would not stack other tool cases on top of this one. On the other hand, the drilll is very tough. It fits well in your hand and the rubberized surfaces are very comfortable. ...

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface:  Evaluation and Testing

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface: Evaluation and Testing

09-27-2012 05:37 PM by djg | 6 comments »

The DC1100 PRO (with Serial Interface) is a true laser particle counter with the ability to count particulate mater suspended the air. There are two size ranges for the PRO model: between 0.5 and 2.5 microns, and greater than 2.5 microns. Several models are available but I felt that for a woodworking shop the stuff less than 2.5 microns was the most important particulate to measure since it is probably the most dangerous. This was purchased through a group buy offered by the Canadian woo...

Great saw for a big box store

Great saw for a big box store

12-11-2008 09:39 PM by DannyBoy | 9 comments »

I know, we all give the big box stores crap for having shoddy this, that, and the other. But let’s face it, we nearly all shop there. Lowes has always been a good place and I continue to love buying from there. I was lucky enough to get offered a bit of a shopping spree from my father for my birthday (a bit belated) and Lowes was just down the street. For the past 6 months I had been cursing myself for spending $30 on a crappy Black your Decker saw that was mostly plastic. I boug...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Great Hand Saw for a Great Price.

Great Hand Saw for a Great Price.

05-08-2012 09:26 PM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Just a couple of days ago I purchased this “Pony” 15” Hand Saw and WOW what a saw. I recently embarked on a journey to learn how to use hand tools. This lead to the decision to attempt to do some resawing by hand. I started off using a Stanley 726 carpenter’s saw. That did not work out. Wrong kind of saw. So, while I was out the other day I stopped by my local Woodcraft and spoke with a salesman about what I was doing. He reccommended this hand saw. I’m glad he ...
