DeWalt Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

06-01-2013 06:59 PM by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...

3 styles of folding sawhorse

3 styles of folding sawhorse

08-29-2014 03:24 AM by Loren | 8 comments »

I get sent products to review sometimes. I’m an amazon vine reviewer. If you review a lot of stuff they’ll probably invite you to be one too. I reviewed a lot of books to start with. I haven’t reviewed many books lately due to the time required to read them. Once in awhile something I can really use becomes available. Here’s my comments on the Portamate folding sawhorses (about $100 a pair) compared to other styles (about $60 a pair) I use as well.

Great DVD's  - Especially for those just starting out.

Great DVD's - Especially for those just starting out.

As one of the prizes for the Winter 2009 contest I received a pair of DVD sets fromPassion for Wood. I wanted to give them a quick review. For those just starting out, the DVD set on Jointer and Planer Secrets would be of great value.The jointer can be a tricky tool to master and Hendrik goes into great detail on the subject. You can save a lot of money buying rough lumber and this DVD will show you how to makeusable wood from it. All in all a great 4 1/2 hour, 2 DVD set. T...

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

01-15-2013 04:13 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

I was on the fence between 3 and 4 stars. I ultimately went with four because, in the end, the saw meets my needs and expectations. But it took a bit of work to get it there I work out of a one-car garage which I share with lawn care tools and my kids bikes, scooter, etc. Oh, and there is also a snap-on rollbox and a motorcycle in there somewhere too :) That said, I have to get creative with how I store my woodworking stuff which includes five floor machines, workbench, etc. Granted, m...

Great idea - does not execute well

Great idea - does not execute well

(note: In response to some of the comments…. I do realize that for some these will work quite well. I too have seen reviews of items I was very pleased with though the reviewer was not. For those of you who these work well for, I would love for you to demonstrate because I really hoped they would work. I appreciate your positive findings. I also want to be clear that I in no way am dissing Rockler. I continue to buy many things from them. My decision not to return them had nothing...

Missed the mark

I must admit, I know very few mobile bases that are actually worth much, and this one is no exception. The brakes have no chance of holding against a load; The entire setup is very unstable, everything wobbles; Universal = Universal from 24×24 to 36×36

Despite being kind to me, 4 years of use has been unkind to this compressor

Despite being kind to me, 4 years of use has been unkind to this compressor

09-08-2014 09:10 PM by paxorion | 11 comments »

If there’s one tool I use every time I try to get any woodworking done, it’s my HF air compressor. Everytime I get any woodworking done at home, the first tool I fire up is my compressor. I purchased it on a whim 4 years ago, and was giddy to have pneumatic power for the first time. This bare bones unit has (and continues) to serve it’s duty, driving nails (I have a HF 18 gauge brad nailer/stapler) and blowing compressed air. There isn’t much to say about how well ...

Worth every Penny

Worth every Penny

I had a few bucks on a Lowe’s gift card and it was one of those rare times I didn’t have something jump out at me that I “need”. I’ve had good luck with Kreg products (namely, pocket hole jig) so I decided to give this one a shot. I normally have used a combo square, fixed squares, and some shop built story sticks and such. The claim from Kreg is that it can be used for 90 & 45 layout, a story stick, depth gauge for set up, a torpedo level, and a couple o...

This square is the squariest, i mean it.

This square is the squariest, i mean it.

I went ahead and tested all of my squares for square (I lined them up against a very flat surface, drew a line , flipped them and drew another line; I measured for any difference between the distance between the lines over their length). The results: surprise, this one actually was square. Over the 7 inches I could not detect any variance. Other squares were longer, other squares were metal, and all but one (which I tossed) was close enough, but only one was actually square. There are ...

Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit, and Use

Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit, and UseBy: Toshio Odate ISBN-10: 0941936465 ISBN-13: 978-0941936460 This book is one of the most inspiring woodworking tools books I have read. Toshio Odate has a ability to tell what you want to know, what you need to know and still spice it with stories from his life, Japanese history and myths. This he do in the wonderful tone of a craftsman with a solid long apprenticeship under the wings of a master (his father) and a long lif...
