Five stars for blatent theft

11-02-2009 08:04 PM by rtb | 54 comments »

Had to stop a Lowes yesterday and wandered into the tool dept. to see whats new. And for once there is something !!! Found a 6” planer painted delta gray with delta blue knobs and the peell and stick delta label marked down for close out. Noticed that it was apparently the only one in stock, but on the shelf below they were a stacked some new porter-cable 6” planer with nice color labels on the boxes. They were porter cable gray with black knobs and peel and stick porter cable la...

Harbor Freight 60 Piece Alloy Steel SAE/Metric Tap and Die Set

Harbor Freight 60 Piece Alloy Steel SAE/Metric Tap and Die Set

07-26-2012 12:20 PM by b2rtch | 51 comments »

For quite awhile I wanted to buy a tap and die set. I buy many things on Amazon so I shopped on Amazon several times for such a set but the prices for such sets always stopped me from buying one. Last week I was browsing through HF website and I read reviews about this set. The reviews were mostly good, so after work I went to buy one of this set. Strangely enough I have been living many years without such a set but since I bought it I have used it every day!It is quite an extensive se...

I then applied a first coat of blotch c...

Chinese firewood...I mean plywood!

Chinese firewood...I mean plywood!

04-21-2008 01:39 AM by Dadoo | 46 comments »

All of my cabinets so far, have been made from birch plywood and trimmed in pine. Now I’ve got a load of old maple for trim and want to build a bookcase system using maple plywood. I’ve looked around and have found that the only place that carries it, is Lowes. Oh, my local yard will be happy to order it…at like $70.00 a sheet…sight unseen. So being careful not to buy some cheap stuff (there’s been some bad vibes concerning Chinese plywood here) I found that the ...

Evapo Rust - Still Impressive

Evapo Rust - Still Impressive

This is my second review of this product. In my first review I show this amazing product on large pieces loaded with rust. Here I decided to clean up some small items. The great thing with this product is that it keeps the rust off for a long period of time, well over a year. A close up of the rust Below is my process as I cleaned several items that day. I do it much like what they say on the bottle. I let the pieces soak in Evapo-Rust for a several hours Then I rinse in plain...

These hold down cost the exorbitant price of $1.97 each!!!!! I read about other “famous” brand hold downs which break the first time you use them. These did not break after about ten tries and they in fact hold , as they are supposed to do . Excellent value.One more time, thank you Harbor Freight,my very favorite store.( just for Greg: this is a full review with pictures not from Harbor Freight ’s website but in fact taken on my new bench)The Harbor Freight guy

Rarely seen level of Customer Service these days

In my review for Klingspor sandpaper, I mentioned I had issues with the diablo sandpaper. I also posted a review of the diablo sandpaper on the home depot website. A few weeks later, I got an email from a home depot employee that specializes in the Diablo line that HD carries. After a brief email exchange, he called me with one of Frued’s lead developers for the diablo sandpaper on the phone. We spent about an hour talking about my sanding experience. What impressed me the most was both...
