new slider on site.

We had someone steel the new 10” makita slider and the old turd of a dewalt slider from the jobsite last week. we are trimming out a hotel and have to have the tools on sight so the boss picked up a new dewalt at the BORG. I am a fan of the dewalt. I have used this saw 12 hours a day for the last 5 days and it has probably cut a few miles of trim between the two shifts. it was dead nuts right out of the box. it has performed so well that I told him to pick up another one on his way...

Cheap, but works very well

Cheap, but works very well

I bought this miter saw about 4 or 5 years ago. It was my second major tool purchase. The first was my $100 Delta table saw. Since then, I’ve used this saw for almost every project I’ve worked on. I’m a hobbyist, so it’s not like I use this everyday though. I am still using the stock blade on it, and it does cut very roughly. I have been meaning to replace that blade with something better soon. It has never broken down and when I set the angles, it doesnR...

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 ...

Ryobi 7 1/2 inch CMS

When I first saw this saw I though how cute, so little. But I knew it was just up my alley. This is not for home repairs or major construction, but is brilliant at cutting small parts. Hook it up to a frued 7 1/2 60tooth blade and you get great smooth cut small parts. I use it for segment turning in cutting the small angles and I also use it in making bandings and fan motifs. If your cutting small parts this is a great saw.

I got this saw about 3weeks ago, and let me just say i love this thing!!! it’s definitely a manly saw. first off it has a TON of power i just cut a 3×3 blank of hard maple no problem what so ever, and I’ve been using the blade that came with it (12’‘x1 60 tooth) to my surprise the blade is actually a decent one. I really like the slider action on it it’s nice and solid. The miter stops and scale are dead on, as for the bevels they needed a “little tuni...

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

It being April Fool’s Day, I couldn’t resist reviewing this old dandy! The restaurant I worked at in 1999 was housed in an 1800’s built brick factory building. My Parents say that when they were young it had been a meat packing and processing plant and in the basement there were tracks and hooks for transporting sides of beef and what not. Also in the basement was a corner that was devoted to a small carpenter’s shop and it was there that I found this baby collecting d...

Very good saw for a variety of uses

Very good saw for a variety of uses

1897 days ago 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...

New affordable sliding mater saw

New affordable sliding mater saw

Hey True Believers, I’ve needed a new miter saw for too long now, and had actually purchased a 10” Skil from WorkShop tools. A couple weeks back I saw on their website that they had generic SLIDING miter saw for about 140.00. It was TD 10” Sliding Miter saw. Well, I’ve been trying to figure out where to put a big Radial arm saw I had (and had never used) and ended up taking the plunge with the new sliding miter instead. Since I had never opened up the box with...

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

I was on the fence between 3 and 4 stars. I ultimately went with four because, in the end, the saw meets my needs and expectations. But it took a bit of work to get it there I work out of a one-car garage which I share with lawn care tools and my kids bikes, scooter, etc. Oh, and there is also a snap-on rollbox and a motorcycle in there somewhere too :) That said, I have to get creative with how I store my woodworking stuff which includes five floor machines, workbench, etc. Granted, m...
