Not the worst, but...

Okay, I realized when I spent $99 on a table saw that I would be getting what I payed for, but I was just starting out and really needed something. I picked up a decent blade for it and hoped for the best. Power: none. It can barely cut a 2” x 4” through the “2” side, don’t even bet on the “4” side. Reliability: Well it hasn’t broken on me yet, but I lost the arbor wrench and without it I can’t change the blade. If you get one, do...

A GREAT SAW

A GREAT SAW

01-27-2008 09:45 PM by bfd | 11 comments »

In my opinion you can’t buy a better saw for the money when it comes to quality. I disagree with the other post on one point calling this a great saw for a beginner. I think it is a great saw period! I don’t concider myself a beginner nor do I concider myself a pro by any means but somewhere in the middle like most. With that said I don’t think this saw will be a purchase that I will regret or out grow any time soon. I opted for the 30” Beisemeyer Fence and have upgr...

Fantastic 110v Tablesaw

Fantastic 110v Tablesaw

01-25-2008 06:15 PM by HybridIndie | 12 comments »

I’ve had this saw for just over a year now and love it. The saw has plenty of power and is very accurate. Repeatable cuts are a breeze as long as you don’t need more that 25” of capacity. This being my only complaint about it. The saw itself is smooth with no noticeable vibration even with my 8” stacked Dado installed. I have ripped long pieces of Red Oak strips for face frames using this with a pretty generous feed rate and no noticeable bogging down in the motor. I ...

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

I’ve had this saw for almost a year now and I love it. I got a great deal on it also. It retails for about $1100 but it went on sale for $1000 and then Sears had a deal for 20% off that and then combined that with no interest for a year. I couldn’t pass it up. I ended up getting it for $800! The saw comes with a Biesemeyer fence which is one of the best features. When I first used the saw with this fence, I could have cried. The Biesemeyer fence works like butter. I don’t k...

Great saw for a beginning woodworker

Great saw for a beginning woodworker

I’ve owned my saw for only a year now, so I haven’t had as much time with it as many of the other LJs out there. Still I think I’ve become good friends with it already. As a person that is new to woodworking, I think this saw is outstanding. Up front, let me make this clear. The model number 36-979 refers only to the saw with 2 cast iron wings. I bought the Delta 36-980 which is the saw (36-979) plus a 30” T-fence. Other Delta models such as the 36-977, 978, 98...

I bought this saw after some research. Age old argument Bosch vs. Ridgid. It was on sale at Home Depot, so argument settled. When I first bought it I had not shop or shed. It folded right up and sat in the living room. UtilityI have built countless window screens, ripped trim, and even cut the 7’ parts for giant garage doors with this baby. I have ripped also plywood sheets, and re-sawn chunky 2×8’s with this saw. My contractor has one too and rewaws 20’ beams wit...

A note for those just getting started ... Don't do it!

A note for those just getting started ... Don't do it!

01-20-2008 04:31 PM by RayW | 20 comments »

I learned basic woodworking from an uncle many years ago while helping him remodel his him. I was an enjoyable time for me I loved the smell of the wood shop and was constantly learning. My uncle was a cabinet and furniture maker, with a long waiting list, in his spare time so he had all the equipment you can dream of. Well, it’s 20 years later now and I’m working a desk job in IT and need a hobby that is not at a computer and I remembered the smell of the fresh cut wood. So in...

Review of the Grizzly G1023SL Cabinet Style Table Saw

Review of the Grizzly G1023SL Cabinet Style Table Saw

01-19-2008 06:54 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 10 comments »

To put it bluntly, I love this Saw. Not, “Love” in the same sense as the way I feel for my wife, or my kids, or my dog, but this Saw is great. I was quite reluctant to buy it frankly. At the time, I had recently quit a job teaching woodworking where I was able to use a Powermatic Cabinet Saw that was about 20 years old, and I also loved that Saw. When I decided to buy my own Table Saw after leaving that job, I had to decide what to get. I didn’t have any money, an...

Review of the Bosch 4000 Portable Table Saw and Folding Stand

Review of the Bosch 4000 Portable Table Saw and Folding Stand

01-19-2008 06:23 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 21 comments »

NOTE: MY RATING OF 5 STARS is based on the operation of this saw for it’s intended use, being that it is a contractor’s portable table saw. I have gotten a lot of emails over the past 18 months or so since I first wrote this up, from folks hoping to build furniture without spending as much as a cabinet saw will cost them. I continue to feel that this saw is not recommended for high-end furniture making. You can get by with a handsaw if you have to, but if you buy this Portable ...

Hitachi Table Saw

Hitachi Table Saw

01-19-2008 06:12 PM by Obi | 73 comments »

On first look the Hitachi C10Fl looked like a great deal but after using it for 2 years the following has become evident: FOR EVERYONE WHO THINKS I PUT THE DUST COLLECTION ON FACING THE WRONG DIRECTION !!! NOTE THAT THE PORT IS OPPOSITE THE OPERATOR. THE PORT WAS INSTALLED ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS. Rated according to the manufacturer at 3 hp found out that it is actually 1 1/2 HP a bold faced lie that they should be sued for. This is a terrible design, and although bigger and be...
