Before I was using a circular saw and my cuts were way off. I was sick of my projects looking off. And that when I relized that I need a miter saw. I went to lowes the next day and the had the porter cable miter saw on sale for 80$! I didnt have the $80 dollars so I went home next week praying that they would have another one next week. I knew the wouldnt have it next week. Christmas was comming around the corner. Christmas day I unrapped a huge box. And thats when I found out that my dad ...

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

12-01-2012 05:27 PM by HarveyM | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw at the beginning of our home addition/renovation with the intention of using it to do the trim work. I wanted a professional quality saw without breaking the budget (I had the contractors for the budget busting). We had a 600 sq. ft new master bedroom/ensuite and family room added to our 960 sq. ft bungalow. The construction crew (Architecture students under a Professional Architect/construction contractor) immediately started using it for framing (honestly if I had real...

Sometimes, Smaller is Better!

Sometimes, Smaller is Better!

I don’t cut crown molding or much of anything with my miter saw except picture frames. I also have to use a crutch to walk, so any tool I can carry with one hand is attractive to me. I do most of my cutting outside, so this “little” miter saw, that can be easily carried with one hand, is great! I sold my 10” miter saw because it was so hard for me to carry that I just got tired of using it. This Craftsman only weighs about 16 pounds and has a carrying handle unde...

Ridgid 12 in Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Ridgid 12 in Sliding Compound Miter Saw

06-28-2010 04:51 AM by Randy L. | 4 comments »

I recently purchased a Ridgid MS 1290LZ 12 in Sliding Compound Miter saw. I was looking for a saw to take the place of both a radial arm saw and a miter saw, so I decided on a 12 in slider. I did not have room (or money!) for both types of saws, so i decided that this would be a good way to get some of the benefits of both. I have had this saw for about two weeks now and am just about done trimming out my entire house with it. So far I am very happy with it and feel as if it was money wel...

skil 10 in compound miter saw

skil 10 in compound miter saw

this miter saw is a very nice saw and has a lot of features you would find on a bigger saw. The bevel adjustment is a handle you turn and the saw becomes loose to turn to the left it is only a single bevel saw but it does go 49’ in each direction for miters. It also has the most common angles for crwn molding marked so they are easy to find. I bought my saw for $100 so it not cheap but aint $1300 like the kapex is I take it on jobs with me all the time so this saw can take a beating. Th...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

05-15-2009 01:54 PM by jonah | 4 comments »

My wife and I bought a house two years ago, and planned to redo the kitchen pretty extensively. I grew up doing construction projects with my step-father and am able to do framing, drywall, finish work, electrical, and very basic plumbing on my own. We ended up tearing it down to the studs and starting from scratch, and did 99% of the project ourselves. I realized before we started that I was going to need more power tools. I had a drill, jigsaw, circular saw, and hand tools, but had no sp...

Excellent accuracy for such a cheap saw. Not such a great blade.

The Black and Decker Firestorm line was a Lowes specific line of tools that was discontinued at the end of 2008. With some of the product offerings pulling them from the market was a good thing to do (I will post a review of the router later), but with some of their offerings, hobbyist woodworkers, and home improvement DIY’ers got left out in the cold. I purchased my FS1000L on sale in January of 2008, and it has seen extensive use since the purchase. The stand (not included, separat...

Festool Kapex, is it worth the price?

Festool Kapex, is it worth the price?

05-03-2011 06:51 PM by TrentFysty | 4 comments »

I have owned and used the Kapex for the last 18 months. Prior to that I used an upper end makita 10 inch saw. My feeling about the Kapex is that it fits a niche market. You can get very nice and just as accurate cuts using other saws that are far less expensive. What I like: The first thing that attracted me to the kapex was the availability of accessories that fit some of my needs. Crown molding clamps, hold down clamps, wing extensions, portable stand, etc. While there are accessories...
