Dewalt Delivers

01-24-2012 10:28 PM by Hermando | 7 comments »

Greetings, I wanted to share a review of the Dewalt DW745 portable table saw. I bought this table saw a few months ago to do a hardwood floor install and have been quite impressed with its accuracy and power. I have owned several portable table saw which have been used Makitas. The Makitas are great for power and durability, but just didn’t have what I wanted in safety features and precision. I was looking for something that would allow me to do better quality wood working without the ...

Jet 3HP Cabinet Saw with 30" Rip

There is a summary below if you don’t want to read this rather long review. Purchase and Delivery:I’ve had this saw a little over a year now and thought it would be a good point to review it. I decided on this saw after looking at countless reviews and considering price and overall weight.I purchased it from my local Woodcraft store. The owner of the store delivered it to my garage for a small fee. At first I was a little concerned that the packaging looked to be rather flimsy. It ha...

Ryobi Table Saw - Model RTS20

Ryobi Table Saw - Model RTS20

01-13-2012 04:15 AM by Trev_Batstone | 16 comments »

I was definately in need of a new table saw, and I looked at various brands at a few retailers before making my decision. Rigid, Dewalt, Laguna and other hi-priced makes were not in my price league, nor did I want a large size saw in my garage workshop. I finally settled for the Ryobi RTS20 model after seeing one on display at Home Depot. I bought one and assembled it yesterday and have already used it several times. My thoughts and comments on this saw are as follows: 1. First of al...

Steel City Contractor Saw

Steel City Contractor Saw

01-02-2012 01:26 AM by GoBig | 13 comments »

I’ll start with a little background. This saw is listed as a hybrid saw, supposedly somewhere between a contractors saw and a cabinet saw. When compared to my previous table saws (a 1980’s craftsman contractor and a 5 hp unisaw) I’d saw it is a true hybrid. I decided to replace the unisaw when I had to move across the country. I wanted a saw that worked well, had guards, and could easily be moved around a two car garage. I might get yelled at for this but I didn’t s...

In woodworking almost always, the number one most used tool in the shop is a table saw (at least in my shop it is now). Well, it is because it is just plain hard to get by in woodworking without a table saw. I was without a table saw since the beginning of my woodworking career (two years ago). Just the inconvenience of having to buy lumber to width. Now as of 12/27/11 I am a proud owner of a SawStop contractor saw with cast iron wings and a 36” pro fence. Let me just say right now this sa...

After a couple of years with the C10fl

After a couple of years with the C10fl

12-13-2011 06:14 PM by jeepers06 | 5 comments »

I have had my Hitachi for a couple of years. I have used it for ripping while building a huge deck on my house and also for various woodworking projects.I have noticed the Hitachi brand at lowes is now porter cable and brown. I bought my drill press there also, says Delta on mine and Porter cable on the new ones. I think Hitachi is juat a name (like sears) and these things are made on bid in China.I also only gave $300 for mine. I had coupon and the saw was on sale.I have actually been p...

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

12-01-2011 05:47 PM by wookie | 8 comments »

Hey Jocks and Jockettes, Disclaimer: I gave this product a 2- star rating just based on the problems detailed below. After much drama, hand-wringing, and pure obsession, the 22124 Zip CodeTS is almost complete except for the outfeed table. It was purchased off of CL. The saw was still on the pallet with the steel cage on it. The seller brought two of them in a semi lot of stuff. He sells the stuff at a little store in a small town in southern IL. Very nice man. He wanted $600, no ...

Really not much to say other then excellent. After using the saw all day i keep asking my self why i waited so long. Assembly was simple just took my time and rechecked everything as i went. Only downside during assembly was i had to run out and get a tap for rear fence rail there was a ton of paint in the threads . Over all it took me about 4hours to put together with a helper. Once i got it dialed in I put it right to work minus one hicup. (see my freud fussion review) We ran a total of...
