Worx WT321K:  Budget Friendly, High Quality Circular Saw

Worx WT321K: Budget Friendly, High Quality Circular Saw

03-10-2010 08:59 AM by dfdye | 16 comments »

Unfortunately, I always run the risk of walking out of my local Woodcraft with more than I intended to. Such was the case this weekend when I went in for a plane blade and a set of cabinet scrapers and walked out with a new circular saw as well. Though I can’t deny that this was an impulse buy, I have been looking for a premium circular saw to replace my junk Skill saw, though most of the saws I was considering were in the $125-$160 range. This Worx “revolver” saw was o...

Best 23 Gauge Tool for the woodworking professional

Best 23 Gauge Tool for the woodworking professional

03-10-2010 07:10 AM by Knotty | 11 comments »

I have had many nail guns over the years but I needed to share this one with you guys. This tool is from Cadex and shoots a 23 gauge brad or a 23 gauge headless pin. It has been my experience with this gun that the Brads hold much better than it’s headless counterpart, but leave no larger mark in the wood. ( I will always buy the brads now) I have used the tool on several exotic woods and it has loads of power to drive into hardwoods. This also has the coolest blow gun feature ever. ( T...

Good starter router, but could do better

Good starter router, but could do better

03-10-2010 05:13 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 6 comments »

As a beginning wood worker on a budget, I have opted for purchasing Ryobi products to fit the bill as the need arises. I’ve been mostly happy with this choice as I find it to be a pretty versatile router. I’ve had it for about a month now. The good:- it takes 1/2 or 1/4” router bits- variable speed that’s easy to adjust- comfortable- powerful enough. I’ve never had it bog down even when a ‘little’ too agressive- micro depth adjustment allows for mo...

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

03-09-2010 11:16 PM by ErikB | 2 comments »

I’ve owned this router for two or three years and I’ve been very happy with its performance. The controls are easy to use, offers ample power, and there are several accessories available should you need additional features (template guides, straight edge guide, etc.) Plunging the router is simple, and the depth gauge is awesome. The variable speed motor runs well and offers soft start after you pull the trigger (in other words, it goes from zero to 100 gradually, not zero to...

IBC Pinnacle A2 Cryo #4 (2") Plane Blade

IBC Pinnacle A2 Cryo #4 (2") Plane Blade

03-09-2010 09:19 AM by dfdye | 15 comments »

After having the blade in my new #4 Footprint wear down more quickly than I would have liked, I figured I should get a good blade to try and extend my time working with wood rather than sharpening gizmos. There has been some discussion in the forum and in other reviews of the Pinnacle line of blades from Woodcraft, so I figured I would give one a try. Long story short, the Pinnacle blade is fantastic. The thickness difference between this blade and a stock cheap blade is huge, which requ...

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

Bench Cookies are Sweet!

03-09-2010 07:19 AM by Jay Neale III | 7 comments »

This will be short and to the point. I bought a set of four Bench Cookies from the Rockler in Arlington, Texas, this past Saturday. That evening I used them to support my new router table top clamped to my old router table top so I could use the old top as a template to rout out the opening for the plate. I hop that made sense. Anyway, the Bench Cookies worked GREAT! I expected them to work, but I was still surprised at how well they held my work piece in place for the entire operation. N...

Grand Slam Tools Home Run Pack

03-09-2010 04:42 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on Tommy Mcdonalds grand slam tools. I got the home run pack in may 2009. The home run pack includes a bench bat, 2 parring blocks, and a marking gauge.

The bench bat, parring blocks, and the marking gauge are all made out of maple and the marking gauge has a hock blade. If you didn’t already know this Tommy McDonald just announced that he got a t.v deal...

THe Festool RAS 115 is a Wood Sculptor's Dream

THe Festool RAS 115 is a Wood Sculptor's Dream

03-08-2010 06:49 PM by Charles Brock | 7 comments »

Several years ago at the Festool IWF booth, I told one of the reps what type of work I do and he said you got to try the “Termite Tool!” Full of woodworker’s cynicism , I thought, Yeah! Just another grinder. I didn’t try it, so I continued to shape my rocking chair seats using a grinder with a carbide wheel attachment while turning my shop’s air into a dusty haze. My only alternative was to go outside on a windy day and let my neighbor deal with the dust. As usua...

This is my first review so go easy on me.. I was at my local sears store just looking around and i saw this bosch driver tucked away on a bottom shelf. It had a big factory reconditioned sticker on it. the battery was charged so so i gave it a try. sounded like it had a lot of torque and it worked great, looked great. sold! half the price of a new one. six months later now. i have drove over one thousand screws with this driver. the only thing that has happened to it is the the swi...
