Woodstock W1109 Mitersaw Stop Biesemeyer Clone Is Junk

Woodstock W1109 Mitersaw Stop Biesemeyer Clone Is Junk

03-18-2018 12:31 PM by Commarato53 | 6 comments »

I saw this product at my local woodworking supplier and was intrigued that it was a clone of a Biesemeyer mitersaw stop that is no longer available. When I bought my Biesemeyer mitersaw table system and original stop almost 20 years ago, they are some of the most used tools in my shop. I was hopeful this Woodstock stop would work as well so I could have multiple stop configurations. The stop is advertised for use with a 2×4 Wood home built miter saw rail, but I was hopeful it would wor...

Very pleased with the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw

Very pleased with the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw

03-14-2018 03:20 PM by garageking | 12 comments »

After much research including reading the many reviews online for this particular saw, I opted to buy the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw. It came down to that or the Bosch glide model. Since the DeWalt was only 349.00 (Acme tools) I decided against the Bosch. I also made the decision that I didn’t really need the LED light guide (200.00 more for the DWS 780).I sold my old Ridgid non slider quickly on C/L. That saw had served me well but what an upgrade! I love the DeWalt s...

Bosch Miter Saw Crown Molding Stops

Bosch Miter Saw Crown Molding Stops

What is there to say but these are a must have. installation is not to too bad depending on the miter saw you have. And you may have to modify/shorten the tightening knobs. in my case things would have gone much smoother if I had removed the saw from my flip stand. I didn’t use the 4 short screws that come with the set since I was also in no mood to tap the holes and besides on most miter saws the metal is too thin and soft so I got few 8-32 screws and nuts and shortened them. the set ...

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

10-18-2017 06:55 PM by PPK | 7 comments »

It’s about time somebody posts a review… I’ll take up the baton… I was thinking about all the tools in my shop, and the one that stands out as earning its money back many times is my chopsaw. I bought this saw quite a long time ago (I was in high school, to be honest). To date, I have only ever adjusted the fence a tiny bit, and swapped out dull blades. The saw has served me well and maintained power and accuracy to this day. The DW703 is the saw I own (the firs...

Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt 7-1/4 in. Miter Saw

Yes I know RYOBI. The last Ryobi product I bought was 20+ years ago and have always thought of them as homeowner specials and not something a contractor of 30 years would use that has always tried to work with “Big Boy” tools.So why did I try this out? I needed a lightweight miter saw to cut some trim in a remodel I’m working on and I didn’t want to keep dragging around my Bosch 12” sliding miter saw nor did I want to keep traveling back and forth to the Bosch ei...

Harbor Freight 10" Sliding Compound Miter

Harbor Freight 10" Sliding Compound Miter

02-06-2017 07:32 PM by raydawg | 20 comments »

Got it on sale for 89.99 instead of $109.It came out of the box and worked great. Had to put my own blade in it but I was aware of that and had extra. Plus it being a 10” saw I can exchange blades between my table saw and this if I really need to. Other than not cutting a 90 degree cut it’s a great saw. I had to turn the saw a degree to the left to make it square. So at 89 degrees NOT locked in to the zero detent, it cuts square up and down as well as side to side. The motor is strong, ...

Ironton 10 in Multi-Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Ironton 10 in Multi-Sliding Compound Miter Saw

01-31-2017 01:34 AM by OldCoach | 14 comments »

I decided to add a sliding miter saw to replace a Ryobi miter saw in the shop. However, it had to fit in my miter saw station that is 26” deep. That left me with few choices-Bosch, Hitachi, Makita and the Craftsman Compact were the major players. All of these would fit in my station. Since all my saws use 10” blades, I preferred to stay with a 10” model. Of course cost was also a major factor, preferring to stay under $250. That pretty much left the Craftsman. I found a coup...

Way better than my Dewalt!

Way better than my Dewalt!

11-29-2016 07:03 PM by stevet47 | 18 comments »

I picked this up online re-manufactured. They were having a sale and I had a discount code, so I managed to get it for $235 shipped. I figured at that price, it was worth the risk. I sold my Dewalt 12” non-slider on craigslist for $200, so I am all-in to this saw for $35. And that is actually true, since the Dewalt was a gift! Using this thing sure is a treat. I had been using my 12” Dewalt non-slider for several years, and we have a 12” Dewalt slider at work. The Dewalts...

straight-up the best miter saw I've ever used

straight-up the best miter saw I've ever used

09-12-2016 07:23 PM by Sundowner | 7 comments »

I’ll start out by saying that after years of wrestling with big 10” and 12” size miter saws and sliding compound miter saws, this little bugger is a revelation. Like most of us, a miter saw is a heavily used tool in my shop, and like most of us, the slide rails suck up more space than I can sacrifice in my shop. Being a happy Festool owner, I had pondered the Kapex, which does not have this problem, but at $1400, it’s a non-starter and doesn’t have the usual Fes...
