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...

Home Depot HomeDepot BucketHead wet / Dry Vac

Home Depot HomeDepot BucketHead wet / Dry Vac

12-22-2015 03:44 AM by Jagerheister | 16 comments »

I heard about this bucket vac a few weeks ago. I needed something really portable, and didn’t want to make a huge investment. I purchased the vacuum at Homedepot for $21 plus a few more dollars for the bucket. I gave it 5 stars because it works, and it’s cheeper than dirt. My review is as follows: https://youtu.be/zyL5sQcQ2L4 If you like the video, please subscribe. Let me know if you have any questions about it, and I’ll get back with you. Thanks

Great all around saw

Great all around saw

03-31-2008 05:19 PM by Mat | 7 comments »

Since I didn’t have a handsaw of any type around the shop, I went ahead and picked up this very usual looking item at the big box store for $20. So far I’ve only used it to cut/trim a some 2×4 and 1×3 stock for some garage storage that I’ll post as a project when I have more time. The grip – The saw has a nice long grip that’s made of some type of rubber…it’s fits nicely in my large hands and does’t slip at all with the texturing o...

Excellent Drill/Driver

Excellent Drill/Driver

02-29-2008 06:58 PM by Chris | 9 comments »

This drill was Christmas gift from my wife this past year. My previous cordless had given up the ghost back in November and I had been grousing about have to use the corded drill all the time. We debated about the merits of 14v vs. 18v vs. 12v? for a while when I told her to pick what we could afford in the budget. I will admit I had my reservation with regards to a 12v drill; I don’t have them any longer. The drill comes with the case (systainer), charger, two batteries, Centrotec ...

Shakin' without aching

Shakin' without aching

Paint can shaker attachment for a sawsall works great. Easy to attach, easy to release, and way easier to shake spray paint up. If you use a decent amount of spraypaint, it’s worth the $$$, even if you only use it occasionally I think you’ll like it.

A HOME RUN FOR ROUTER TEMPLATES

A HOME RUN FOR ROUTER TEMPLATES

09-13-2013 12:32 AM by motthunter | 9 comments »

I used this tape and had to say WOW! It is an advance for the art of router templates like i have never seen. You tear off a piece of this tape and attach it to your router template. Peel off the backing paper and place the template on the wood you want to rout. The tape holds strong and when you are done, you pick off the template and it pops off with zero adhesive left on the wood.. No more scraping adhesive, no more lacquer thinner to remove the adhesive, no more crazy sanding. This...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

04-27-2013 05:50 PM by colvinatch | 2 comments »

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...

Porter Cable 690LR "Ouch"

Porter Cable 690LR "Ouch"

11-23-2014 11:47 PM by captferd | 11 comments »

Been using Porter Cable routers Since mid 80’s. Cant wear them out. Well at least not till now. I was setting the adjustments on my plunge router when the handle suddenly just broke. My thumb got a pretty good slice in the process. Luckily it wasn’t running at the time, that could have been disastrous. My advise to anyone that has one of these routers with the hard plastic handles would be to replace them. I had some rubber ones from another base that fit. I’m not sure if ag...
