New Delta Unisaw

New Delta Unisaw

1551 days ago by Eric | 11 comments »

I recently retired from Air National Guard, after spending 26.5 years on, active duty, reserve or guard. My wife suggested I treat myself to a retirement gift. I suggested a new Delta Unisaw and she said, “Yes”. My reply was “What”? It took me about a month to get over sticker shock and order the saw. So it was delivered to my garage. Now how to get it into my walk out basement? The big box weighs around 450 pounds. How to get it to my shop in the basement? My wife called a moving...

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site Saw PCB220TS

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site Saw PCB220TS

1572 days ago by bobdobbs | 19 comments »

Thanks to Laffayette Jack, for having one of the only reviews anywhere on this saw. I was in the situation of having my old craftsman portable die mid-project. I was never very happy with that saw anyway, so I started looking at craigslist for real saws and just stopped by Lowes to see what they had for prices. Being surprised to see the Porter Cable saws (both PCB220TS $299 and PCB270TS $599) as well as all of the other Porter Cable tools that I’ve never seen (Planers, Jointers, S...

I was looking for a cheap but effective option for cutting pen blanks since I don’t really have a workshop setup yet for the space nor the money for a large band-saw or table-saw even. So searching around on the internet I found this tiny little table-saw at Harbor Freight. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=93211 Listed at $39.99 it didn’t seem like to bad a deal. It claims it can cut 3/4” and cuts at 14,000rpm which should be just fine...

Very capable table saw

Very capable table saw

1602 days ago by Twigger | 8 comments »

My two expert woodworking friends scoffed at any thoughts that I’d buy less than a table saw that I’d be happy with for a long long time. When I suggested this saw they both endorsed the idea. It’s been great. I will add that I’ve invested in the Forrest Woodworker II blade. The cuts are really good, and from a beginner. And I’ve done some pretty complicated work creating a maple corner cabinet with various mitered joints, dado groves and other finer feature...

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site table saw

Porter-Cable 10" Job Site table saw

1606 days ago by LafayetteJack | 9 comments »

Review of the PorterCable PCB220 Job site saw. I am a relative newcomer to woodworking and the only comparison I have for this saw is my old Delta Shopmaster TS200. So as they say…your mileage may vary. Specs from the Lowes website (I have not been able to find this saw on the PorterCable site):UL Safety Listing No CSA Safety Listing Yes ETL Safety Listing No Blade Size (Inches) 10.0 Arbor Size (Inches) 0.625 Drive Motor System Direct Amps 15.0 Bevel Capacity (Degrees) 45.0 Aluminum...

BitterSweet week for my woodshop

BitterSweet week for my woodshop

1620 days ago by ShipWreck | 10 comments »

Got laid off back in August due to the housing/construction slow down, and things are not looking any better in the near future. I gave up on looking for work and decided to start my own home repair business. Now that I am using my 1 car garage/shop as a base for my business, I decided that I need more portability in my setup, .... so that means I sold off my stationary tools this week. :( Gone are my beloved Delta 36-979 table saw, dust collector, Dewalt air compressor, and Craftsman 6...

Great features, Horrible Alignment Issues

Great features, Horrible Alignment Issues

1628 days ago by bobthebuilderinmichigan | 36 comments »

I was very impressed with the Craftsman 21833 Contractors Table Saw when I saw it in the store. It had many features found on more expensive models – i.e. the motor is 1 3/4 hp and is fully enclosed and quiet with good dust collection. However, all of that becomes worthless if you can’t align the blade to the miter slots. Mine came 1/8” out of alignment! Turns out, the trunion bolt holes aren’t drilled precisely because despite loosening them and knocking the truni...

Central Machinery 10" Industrial Cabinet Saw

Central Machinery 10" Industrial Cabinet Saw

1644 days ago by dustbunny | 61 comments »

I know your probably thinking…”HF, if it’s anything like some of the other things they sell, it’s not worth it” But read on…I was very reluctant to buy this saw, and debated about it for several months. Then HF had a 25% discount coupon the day after Christmas, only to be used on New Years Day. I figured the math and this TS was going to cost $562.50, original price $750.00. So I bit the bullet and ordered it.The specs-3 HP motor, 230V, single phase; Max. s...

Not bad, until you use something better

Not bad, until you use something better

1645 days ago by funchuck | 10 comments »

This was my first major tool purchase about 5 or 6 years ago. It was a whopping $100 from Lowes. At the time, I thought that was a lot of money! This saw has some limitations: The miter gauge slot is not standard, so you can’t upgrade to a better one. The table is very small The insert is just a thin piece of metal, which will make it hard to create an insert. I found the fence to be surprisingly good. When I lock it down, it doesn’t slip, and it locks down at ...

JET 708315BTC 10" Bench top Table Saw

JET 708315BTC 10" Bench top Table Saw

1649 days ago by Viktor | 10 comments »

JET 708315BTC 10” Bench top Table SawPrice $250+ When I set off to find a budget and more importantly compact saw, I went through lots of online reviews and ratings. It surprised me that many people pay $200-$300 and expect a professional fine tuned cabinet saw jump right out of the box. Then they give poor rating without even bothering to set riving knife correctly or check blade alignment. I look at it this way: There are things that you can modify, fix or adjust (flimsy fence, ...
