Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

That’s probably all the saw you’d need – My wife Famous last words for a saw that I quickly became annoyed with. I purchased the saw about 3 years ago during a Lowes fathers day sale. For the price, was quite the bargain. I’ve used the saw for for a much of home repair/renovation jobs, as well as many woodworking projects to break down sheet goods and solid lumber. At 13amps, it’s rated to have less power than many 15amp saws, but I doubt many would experi...

Straight, True, Inexpensive

Straight, True, Inexpensive

98 days ago by KelvinGrove | 25 comments »

One day, when I win the lottery, I will have everything I want in a shop including one of the really nice panel saws like they use in the Big Orange Box. In the mean time, I need a way to cut sheet goods. I have a couple of requirements on that. First, I don’t want to be wrestling 4X8 sheet through a circular saw. Second, I don’t want to “break things down to a rough size” and finish them on the table saw. Way too much waste in that. So along comes the TrueTr...

Handy tools everyone should have.

Handy tools everyone should have.

I finally had a real need to use the Dremel Saw-Max I recieved for Christmas last year. Had an entertainment center to cut down for a smaller area. I wanted to make the simplest cuts to remove height from the cabinet. A straight edge and my Saw-Max did the trick. I was concerned that the abrasive type blades would not be able to cut cleanly without tearout, and may cause burning. Not to worry. This little guy is the best. I am more than pleased with the performance. I have now used ...

Get One If You Can!

Ive had the track saw for a while now and I must say I love it… as some of you know I am a bit of a Festool junkie, I cant speak for other brands of track saws as I havent used them, but this one is great. Everything from cutting sheets of material to cutting a countertop on a mitre with no chipping and actually have it work on site! It is also a great time saver for cutting long angles without having to jigsaw and router them you can just lay the track on the workpiece, cut and done. I...

Excellent Track Saw At A Great Price

Excellent Track Saw At A Great Price

260 days ago by jonah | 22 comments »

The Scheppach Track Saw is sold under many brands, including Scheppach, Grizzly, Woodstar, and several others. All are identical. What is different, at least in my case, is the price. Grizzly sells the saw by itself for ~$180, or as a part of a kit for $245. The Grizzly kit comes with a 55” rail and some accessories. In the US, the Scheppach saw is imported by the Colovos Company, a Chicago-based company. I’ll detail my contact with the company later in the review. I purchas...

Bosch CS10 Circular Saw

Bosch CS10 Circular Saw

This is a review on Bosch’s CS10 circ. saw w.r.t. a major design flaw, IMO, that I felt was significant enough to post here, so others don’t waste their time and money on this product. So this is not an in-depth review of using the saw over a 6 month period. Basically I first chose to buy this saw because it is often on sale for $99. at a lot of big box/hardware stores, plus on a lot of carpentry website forums many have noted Bosch’s durability and reliability (almost alway...

I purchased this Dewalt TrackSaw kit last year for Christmas. I purchased this specifically for larger projects that require sheet goods, such as the New Yankee Miter Saw Bench & Cabinets I am building. (See my blog here.) Shipping:This tool was shipped directly from Dewalt Due to the length of the 102” track, it was shipped via freight. There was some confusion in the shipping process. requiring me to contact the local freight company to schedule delivery. The saw was atta...

Makita 5007MG

Makita 5007MG

Some of you might remember that my nearly 30 year old Craftsman circular saw smoked during the beginning of building my wife’s garden shed. I was looking at a couple different saws, but based mostly on the recommendations of several LJ’ers who probably are more up to speed on such things, I spent the little extra to get the Makita 5007MG. I have to say that this was probably one of the best out=of-the-box products I’ve purchased. It has adjustments to get it aligned, but aft...

Great saw for the money, even a better package

Great saw for the money, even a better package

I’ve been looking at cordless circular saws for some time now, because I want one to take with me to lumberyards to break down long boards so they fit into my small station wagon.Walking into Lowes three weeks ago looking for an unrelated item, I stumbled upon a Porter Cable combo-package of 4 tools, two Ni-cd batteries and a charger for a price I couldn’t afford to pass up – $129.00. After looking at it for about 10 seconds before I made up my mind to buy it, I was at the r...
