I debated over my first plane purchase. I wasn’t convinced I could appreciate a finer plane from Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, and from reading, the low-end options seem to often require quite a bit of work that I’m not familiar with. So, the WoodRiver low angle jack from my local Woodcraft seemed a good option. I found the plane immediately underwhelming—it just didn’t feel that great in my hand. Out of the box, the tote was very loose and had to be tightened. Trying to ...

Wicked Awesome Saw!

Wicked Awesome Saw!

05-10-2016 11:42 PM by vulgarviking | 9 comments »

Ok. I apologize for the Bostonian title. It won’t happen again. Lol! So after about 6 months of research, looking at saws by going to tool dealers, Craigslist post, consignment shops and so on… I settled on the 36-725. My wife figured out the saw I wanted and got me the 36-5000! She figured it was better and I wasn’t about to argue. So on to the review: There’s not much more that I can say that hasn’t already been said about the 36-725. Differences are th...

Yet another Powermatic review, close up.

Yet another Powermatic review, close up.

05-08-2016 01:15 PM by Tennessee | 10 comments »

As I stated in another review, I spent well over a month going back and forth between the Powermatic PWBS-14CS, with riser, and the Grizzly G0513X2. The differences are stark.The Grizz uses a 131.5” blade, the Powermatic uses a 105”. (More steel, more teeth, longer wear.)The Grizz is a 2HP, 2 speed model, the Powermatic is a one speed, 1.5HP model.The Powermatic comes in around 225 lbs. The Grizzly comes in at about 390 lbs.The Grizz table is 23 5/8 X 17 1/4”, the Powerm...

Quickbench...its quick, its a bench, but it won't replace your workbench

Quickbench...its quick, its a bench, but it won't replace your workbench

I bought two of these Quickbench folding work tables more than a year ago. My thinking was they would be great for my 1 car garage shop. They can be folded up and set against the wall to get out of the way and give me some more room around the shop. The main features- the top has dog holes, and a vice, and comes with some plastic dogs. -there is a tray in each top where you can put screws and small tools and have them out of the way of the work surface, and secure- The tops can fold dow...

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

05-05-2016 05:28 PM by Matt | 15 comments »

I purchased this saw after finally committing to building out my long dreamed about woodshop. I had a bunch of contractor/jobsite grade tools and didn’t really have any experience with professional grade WW tools. Background: (I’m a hobbyist) Originally I had purchased a Ridgid R4510 (R45101) and it failed while trying to rip 12/4 poplar. Sure…... it was a lot for it to cut, but what’s the point of a blade height of 3 1/4” when it can’t cut that much...

Great customer service

Great customer service

This isn’t a blade review, but I’ve bought several and been pleased with all of them. (I recommend the 3-pack for the price and versatility – one for curves, one for rip and one for reswaw for less than $100.) Will continue to buy from them, especially now. Not long ago I ordered a replacement 3/4” and I could not get the thing to stop wobbling at least 1/4 inch back and forth. Messed with every adjustment imaginable and nothing worked. I thought maybe I even screwed u...

I upgraded my old mid 50s Delta, it had some issues So I ordered this Saw from CPO, the Mobile base arrived in a big box with no packing at all, both the wheel locks were broken, I thought jeez hope the saw comes in better shape. And it did saw was packed very well in three boxes also the riser was included in its own box with all its access, at no charge it was included so that was nice.The saw was fairly easy to set up a earlier poster complained about the motor being hard to hang this ...

Several months ago I posted a negative review on the Shelix replacement head for my Dewalt 735. The problem was that the replacement heads are normally slightly smaller in diameter which makes it possible to install a Shelix with all the cutters in place through the main bearing seat on the drive end. However, I found the reduced diameter to be a problem as now I had snipe and a reduced cutting range and increased roller pressure. After a couple of phone calls and emails to Byrd Tool, th...

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

04-27-2016 10:11 PM by Redoak49 | 4 comments »

I had added this Milwaukee M12 drill to my Christmas list this year. I had tried it at the store and it was a nice size. Thankfully, my wife got it for me and it came in a kit with the drill/driver, charger, two batteries and the Hackzall. The drill driver works well and has plenty of power and a good clutch on it. It is solidly built and feels good in my hand. It is now my go to drill/driver and is lighter than the 18V one that I have. The chuck works well and it is easy to tighten a...
