Hitachi C10FL Hybrid Table Saw - Awesome saw for the money

Hitachi C10FL Hybrid Table Saw - Awesome saw for the money

06-03-2008 05:56 AM by Weekend_Carpenter | 13 comments »

I just bought this saw ($499 – 15%(Promo) – 10% (coupon) -$100 (gift card thru MIR), and I love it. This is my second table saw, and I am far from a professional woodworker (that is why I bought a $500 TS ;), and not a $1000+ Jet table saw). I have used it with pine and cedar in the month that I have had it. It cut great through both, even when using the dado blade. This saw is not perfect, but it is a lot better than the others in the same price range. Here are the pros, and cons (and no I d...

Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

Craftsman "All-in-one" Rotary Cutting Tool

02-29-2008 05:47 PM by Dadoo | 12 comments »

I bought this tool off of Ebay a couple years ago and although the price was very good (less than $60.00) this tool just don’t “cut it” with me. First off, it’s very loud. Loud enough that you need hearing protection. Secondly, it creates a ton of dust and blows it all around, requiring respiratory protection, a shop vac, mop and bucket, as well as a shower when you’re done. So here’s some more pros and cons that I have found. PROS Plunge router base, c...

Out of the box review and initial impressions.

A full review post use, and swapping blade to a proper blade are going to be in the works, but I figured I would post this up now to give you guys a heads up. I may just edit this review when I am ready, who knows? This is NOT a usage, or long term review, this is just a fit and finish sort of thing. So if that is what you are interested in, read on… I picked up a Chicago Electric #98194 on Friday with a coupon I have been sitting on for a few months that expired on Sunday, so it ...

Craftsman Professional series #315.218290 Tablesaw with folding stand.

01-17-2008 07:22 PM by Dadoo | 13 comments »

This is my personal review of my Craftsman saw listed above. I work out of a two car garage that I need to park two vehicles in, so I need a saw that is light and portable, and that leaves a small footprint when stored. About a year ago I literally burned up my old Rockwell tablesaw and went on the hunt for a new one. Brands like Bosch, Makita and Rigid weren’t readily available to see, touch and examine…and Sears had this one “on sale” for $350.00. There was a Dewalt ...

Insulfoam Garage Door Insulation Kit

Insulfoam Garage Door Insulation Kit

02-09-2012 05:34 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

My three garage doors were not insulated. Never a problem until last year when I converted bay 3 into the Man Cave wood shop and started spending much time out here. I don’t even remember what the back porch looks like. My dogs miss me terribly. They bark at me before they remember me. I went to the BORG and the BBRG looking for garage door insulation whatever. They had some Owens Corning bag of flimsy, etc. No thanks. I called my garage door supplier/installer to see how much...

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

12-18-2009 05:23 PM by Tim Dorcas | 42 comments »

I first saw a Laguna Bandsaw in 2006 at the Calgary Woodworking Show. Man was it impressive! It just oozed quality. And when they cut a burl veneer slice, it looked like it barely needed sanding. What can I say – I was hooked (I still have that veneer slice). However at the time I didn’t have the money for it and went on to purchase something else. I always kept that demo in mind. After trying for three years to get my bandsaw to accurately cut wood and spending a mini fortune ...

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

02-18-2010 12:47 AM by GaryK | 50 comments »

Does your arm get tired cranking your router up and down in your router lift? Especially when you hve to crank it all the way up to change a bit? Well, how about no cranking at all and go from all the way down to all the way up in ONE SECOND! Well the new PRL V2 from Woodpeckers does just that. Install the spring loaded handle, give it quarter turn and you can pull or push the router to where ever you want it. Just stop it when you are close and use the micro adjustment wheel to reac...

Harbor Freight Dovetail jig

Harbor Freight Dovetail jig

07-26-2010 07:20 AM by Tim29 | 53 comments »

I have been wanting to get a dovetail jig for sometime now. I was up against a brick wall however. Do I fork over the bucks for a Porter Cable jig or do I buy a cheaper jig and see if it does the job for less money. I have tried this type of approach many times with many tools. Most of the time I have went on to pay for the better quality tool as well as the cheaper tool that did not work. This is not one of those times.I paid the $23 for the Harbor Freight Dovetail jig and it works pretty we...

UltraDeck Composite Decking material

UltraDeck Composite Decking material

04-27-2012 01:54 PM by richgreer | 5 comments »

I just completed building a deck that featured the UltraDeck composite decking material. This was my first experience with any composite decking material. In many regards, I was impressed. This is a solid, straight and true decking material. They claim it is maintenance free and I believe them. The hidden screw system works reasonably well and, once you figure it out, installation goes well. The second picture shows a close-up of the grooves in the sides of the boards. A T-s...

R4510 with PICS!

Hey Everyone - I’ve never posted here before, but I did a lot of research here before buying a replacement for my beloved cast iron Ridgid table saw. It had served me well through a major renovation, but now that the project is complete, I wanted something I could more easily tuck out of the way. I’d narrowed it down to the Ridgid 2410LS and the Bosch 4100, and was leaning toward the Bosch when I dropped in at my local Home Depot. The Ridgid rep happened to be there on a Sat...
