Initial Review for Rigid R4151

Initial Review for Rigid R4151

03-23-2008 11:27 PM by steve3604 | 15 comments »

Been shopping for Miter Saws since last fall, read the reviews, searched the web, yada yada, 20% off sale on rigid tools at Home Depot so went and checked it out. I currently have some Rigid tools, (TS3650 table saw totally love it, TP1300 2 blade planer love it, floor model drill press don’t love it but its decent), looked at sliders, and non-sliders 10 and 12 inch, they even had some factory refurb 12” sliders for 349.00. I eventually went with the new R4151 and here’s wha...

Makita LS1214F 12-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Makita LS1214F 12-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

I just bought this Makita 12” sliding miter saw and cannot say enough good about this saw. I went to Acme Tool an hour and a half away in Cedar Rapids so I could play with the Makita, Bosch and Dewalt miter saws. I felt the Makita had the smoothest slides of all three and liked the way the slides are on the bottom of the saw. There was no movment whatsoever and it just seemed like the best quality saw. It was right on the nuts out of the box and I cut all my trim for the shop with it. I would...

Makita LS1013F 10-inch Compound Sliding Miter Saw Review

Introduction – Over the last 14+ years, I’ve been using a 10-inch Craftsman Compound Miter Saw. It has served me well. In conjunction with the Craftsman Miter Saw, I had purchased a used Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. Unfortunately the Radial Arm saw had a wobble to it. It was not very accurate. I am guessing the previous owner damaged the saw mechanics. Since that time the sliding miter saw has emerged as a viable tool to replace the regular miter saw and the radial arm saw. With limited w...

Irwin Miter Saw Laser Guide -- works well so far

Irwin Miter Saw Laser Guide -- works well so far

05-29-2008 01:42 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 12 comments »

This weekend I bought and installed the Irwin Miter Saw Laser Guide onto my DeWalt Miter Saw. I’m very happy with it so far. It was easy to install It projects a crisp clean line to the left of the blade (unless your blade retaining nut is on the right of the blade) It is very helpful with complex cuts or cutting complex material It is less helpful with straight cuts on square material (it’s easier for you to know where the blade will be cutting in this regard) It was c...

01. shippingI ordered this from reconditionedsales.comPackaging was pretty normal, like the standard for this type of tool. Huge box to say the least. Ordered on a Friday and received the saw on a Tuesday morning with regular UPS shipping. 02. hardware listEverything was in the box. Box looked like it was new. This was however a reconditioned miter saw, but I could not tell it at all. 03. assemblingEasy, not much to do. 04. tuning and adjustingAdjusted the insert throat on each s...

The new Bosch GCM12SD Miter Saw with articulating nuckles and no rails

I was at the New England Woodworking Show last week not really looking for anything in particular when I happened on the new Bosch Miter Saw. I had looked at the Festool… too expensive and I hate that your blades are limited by the size of the arbor & that Festool wants you to buy their blades. I started really looking at the Bosch and the price was so good ($694 show price) that I ended up ordering one the next day. It came on Wednesday but I didn’t have time to do anythin...

BackgroundI bought this saw specifically for a workshop bench task I had to do, and the small saw I had was not accurate or large enough to cut 300mm wide material.So as a result if you know of any LJs needing a small drop saw its available see Photo no 2I have never seen the brand before and was a little hesitant to purchase it first up so some research was conducted to evaluate it and some others I was familar with. The decision to buy it was based on its price and the ability to cut 300...

$1400 + with tax

$1400 + with tax

I have other Festool tools which are absolutely fabulous so when I needed to replace my old chop saw, I looked for a really good one, I considered the newest Bosch with all the fancy knuckle work instead of the sliding arm. I really thought the Bosch saw would be a welcome tool in my shop, but then I told myself that for a mere $500 more I could have the Festool Kapex, and own the very best, well now that I have the Festool Kapex and have taken it for a few laps around the shop, my dicovery i...
