DEWALT  12 In. 96T Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Thin Curf Saw Blade

DEWALT 12 In. 96T Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Thin Curf Saw Blade

01-17-2011 09:06 AM by wseand | 13 comments »

I was looking around for a new blade for my DW718 SCMS and I was wondering around Lowes and spotted this beaut. So I took it home and put it to the test. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was when cutting through the wood. It leaves an incredibly smooth and clean cut. It cut perfect miters on hard maple in the first pass. It says it cuts nonferrous metals so I cut some copper tubing and it made a nice smooth cut leaving little tear out but you better wear eye protection. Then ...

A step up from my no-name chisels

A step up from my no-name chisels

01-17-2011 08:49 AM by RandyMorter | 17 comments »

I know next to nothing about chisels but I’ve been trying to use them a bit. I’ve got some cheap set, probably from Home Depot, with nicks in them that I work around. I’d like to learn how to sharpen them but haven’t started down that path yet. I’ve read mixed reviews about these chisels but something inside me said to get them so I did. They came covered in some kind of oil that I removed with mineral spirits (please tell me if I’ve already ruined th...

Alot to like about this planer...

Alot to like about this planer...

01-17-2011 05:28 AM by Brad_Nailor | 30 comments »

Well, I have been wanting to get one of these since I first read about them, a ways back. I read all the reviews and really wanted this planer over the DeWalt two speed. I finally got the opportunity to buy one and I took delivery of it about a week after Christmas. I bought it from Highland Hardware..they had it on sale for $499.00, and $48.00 shipping. It came UPS, and it was really heavy. Hand trucked it down to my shop and opened it up. Packed very well, and didn’t seem damaged at ...

Steel City 35990G Granite Top Contractor Saw

01-15-2011 05:44 PM by TheBossQ | 28 comments »

Preface The original purpose of this review was to review, in detail, the Steel City 35990G table saw from a first hand user point of view. In the end, I ran into a couple of problems that I just could not put aside. I hope you find the review helpful if you are considering this saw. Purchase & Shipping My wife purchased this saw as a Christmas present. Purchased from Amazon, shipped by freight (Pilot). Pilot missed the delivery date, but delivered the next day and the package lo...

Grizzly Cabinet Saw Review G0690

Grizzly Cabinet Saw Review G0690

01-15-2011 06:05 AM by Sherwood | 13 comments »

I’ve used LumberJocks extensively to look at reviews of tools so I thought I would join and contribute with some content of my own. I purchased this table saw about 2 months ago and have been happy with my decision. Grizzly has recently started to ship to Canada so this has opened another possibility with regard to the saws I looked at. In summary I considered General, Delta, Jet, SawStop and decided on Grizzly because of the value for the money and I like the company and owners stor...

Decent Sander for the Price (using Coupon)

Decent Sander for the Price (using Coupon)

01-14-2011 10:47 PM by Denappy | 15 comments »

Found a Harbor Freight coupon for this in the latest issue of Wood Magazine for $49.95 (lists for $99.99), so I thought I would run down to my local Harbor Freight and check out the “floor model”. After looking it over I decided to go ahead and make the purchase. It unpacked easily and was a breeze to setup. Basically just have to attached the table. For the most part this is a pretty decent machine for the price, good cast iron parts except for the table and the disk; which ...

My first bandsaw - nice saw and features with minor issues

My first bandsaw - nice saw and features with minor issues

01-14-2011 09:32 PM by RandyMorter | 17 comments »

I ordered this on 12/31/2010 by phone from Grizzly. It was shipped from the Springfield, MO location via UPS Freight to Phoenix, AZ. I ordered it as a will call since I live pretty close to the terminal, I’ve got a F-250 to carry it in, and I didn’t think a semi could get into my housing development (in Phoenix). It arrived at UPS on Thursday, 1/6/2011, 6 days later (not bad considering the holiday and weather).The box was damaged. The UPS rep opened it on the spot – the uni...

Sears Contractor Saw 21833

Sears Contractor Saw 21833

01-14-2011 06:19 AM by GeorgeK | 14 comments »

I think I’ve read most of the postings on the 21833. Picked mine up today. Based on what I’d read I expected a big forklift or crane to appear but there was just this little guy pushing a hand truck. He and a buddy pushed it up on the trailer and away we went. Off loading it was a breeze. Backed it up to my shop door and a couple of us carefully lowered it to my hand truck and wheeled it into the shop. Getting all the parts out of the box was a pain because you have to break up...

Great Flashlight - Indispensable tool

Great Flashlight - Indispensable tool

01-13-2011 06:55 PM by richgreer | 9 comments »

I have 4 other 18 volt Dewalt cordless tools with 4 batteries and 2 chargers. The batteries are all interchangeable so I almost always have charged batteries on hand. My local tool store had these “bare” flashlights on sale for about $20 and I said “why not?”. By “bare” I mean without battery or charger. This flashlight has proven to be a great tool that I didn’t know I needed until I got one. There are often situations where some extra di...

Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...
