Sturdy4. Good for homeowner use5. Nice color6. Soft comfortable grip7. Trigger safety8. Long battery life so far Cons: 1. Poor wood chip ejection2. Plastic Bumper spikes that are minimal3. Large plastic cap for chain oil limiting amount of oil and causing spill over if not very careful4. Ex...

Neutrik Powercon True 1 connectors

Neutrik Powercon True 1 connectors

01-06-2019 09:23 PM by Samgar | 6 comments »

I work in the Entertainment industry on the technical side of things, meaning backstage. So I’ve been using Neutrik stuff for a very long time. I have used their Powercon stuff in the past but I was never able to find in line male and female connectors, it was always one was panel mount and the other was on the end of a cable. Well, they came out with this product I don’t know when and it is what I was looking for. I bought a Delta 900 RAS and wanted the ability to remove th...

Tool-less guide upgrade kit for Rikon 10-325, good but could be better

Tool-less guide upgrade kit for Rikon 10-325, good but could be better

01-03-2019 01:43 AM by Mike_D_S | 3 comments »

So about a year and a half ago, I got a great deal on a good condition rikon 10-325 bandsaw locally. I have read several places that the only major difference between the 10-325 and the current 10-326 is the tool-less blade guides. I saw the tool-less guide upgrade kit was available to upgrade the saw and decided that while it was interesting, for $150 I could just use the allen wrenches. Earlier this year, I happened to see the upgrade kit was on sale and I was considering changing the st...

Good splitter solution for saws without a riving knife

Good splitter solution for saws without a riving knife

01-02-2019 06:54 PM by Mike_D_S | 13 comments »

I’ve actually had this for about over a year new in the package, but shortly after I got this I also picked up a Betterley Tru Cut insert which has an aluminum body and a pre cut slot for a splitter preventing the use of the Micro Jig system, so the MJ Splitter got put in a drawer. Recently I was cutting some white oak and was getting some binding. I have a Steel City cabinet saw and it uses a bulky splitter/blade guard. For a couple of reasons, I don’t use the factory splitt...

Dust Deputy, Fein Turbo II and a Homer bucket

Dust Deputy, Fein Turbo II and a Homer bucket

01-02-2019 03:00 AM by Green_Hornut | 12 comments »

I received a Dust Deputy DYI for Christmas and now that the holidays are winding down I decided to put everything together. I was happy to receive it as a gift with the expectation that it will help reduce the number of expensive bags I have to buy for my Fein Turbo II. After watching a couple of YouTube videos of other installs and reading the owner’s manual I stopped by Home Depot and picked up a Homer bucket and top. I liked HD’s top because it had a rubber gasket to help seal. The Dus...

4x hearing protector comparison (3M Worktunes Connect, 3M Peltor Optime 105, 3M E-A-R, misc plugs)

I’ve been using the ear plugs with solid neck band for years. Generally I really liked them but some issues left me wanting to explore other options. I recently picked up a couple over-the-ear options and thought I’d write up my thoughts on all the different hearing protectors I use. I have not been able to test the longevity of these but I have a few work sessions on each under my belt. My thoughts are below, TLDR at the bottom: 3M E-A-R plugs with solid neck bandhttps://w...

So for Christmas/Birthday (wee holiday birthday…), I asked for a small bandsaw, and, due to some mistakes/misinterpretations – some my fault / mistakes too if I’m honest – I ended up with one of these Grizzly little benchtop jobs. https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-9-Benchtop-Bandsaw/G0803 For those who know the deal – this is “that same model” thats made in probably a couple different Chinese factories, rebranded under about 100 names fro...

Variable speed belt sander may revolutionize shop

Variable speed belt sander may revolutionize shop

12-26-2018 09:33 PM by NoSpace | 2 comments »

I’ve bought several tools in the last couple of months, and if I had to pick the tool that has made a greater improvement in my output than any of the others it would be this belt sander. I’ll forgo the unhappy circumstances that brought me to buy the sander in the first place—it was a desperation purchase, not a fun shopping adventure purchase. I’ve never even considered getting a handheld belt sander because I have a stationary belt sander that I refer to as my pr...

The Decision and Initial Setup

The Decision and Initial Setup

12-22-2018 03:29 AM by Jerome | 10 comments »

This probably should be a blog post, but it is also a review in some way because I will explain why I chose this saw over a few others that were on the market. Often times I look for reviews, but I also wanted to share why I chose it as it does relate to how I value my purchase. This a a new saw so I want to give it its due. I currently own a JET 14 bandsaw that I purchased on CL about 5 years ago . It taught me alot as my first bandsaw, but was time for an upgrade mainly due to dust collect...

Teknatool Customer Service - Exceptionally Terrible!

Teknatool Customer Service - Exceptionally Terrible!

12-19-2018 03:08 AM by crb | 19 comments »

I am writing this to help others reconsider buying a large tool from Teknatool due to their poor support and also to vent. I purchased the Teknatool Voyager drill press in September due to the $200 mail in rebate. The press arrived about a week later and I got it out of the box and assembled. After running it once I immediately filled out the MIR form online for the $200 rebate and provided the invoice. Unknown to me (my fault) the invoice had the invoice date (October 1) and not the orde...
