Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

Big improvement ends being PURE GARBAGE!!!

04-22-2011 06:52 PM by Severiano | 41 comments »

I’ve purchased this saw ‘cause I owned the past model. It was supposed to be a big improvement. Surprise!!!, the main table was broken at the back, right where the Allen screw holds the saw’s main axle!!!. I’ve sent it to the service center and they kindly replaced the table at no cost…’cause the saw was under warranty still. I’ve seen the saw had a problem. It wouldn’t stay vertical, I mean it wasn’t cross cutting vertical, there was at l...

How do you keep your portable table saw dry in the back of your pickup truck...

I’ve had people asking for a cover for a folding, portable table saw. A lot of people fold them up and throw them in the back of the pickup truck. Then, off they go, down the road…and it starts to rain. Pull over, drag a tarp, or a piece of plywood on it, it’s raining and the tarp blows off… OR… pull the KerryAll Saw Pouch out from behind the seat (they fold up to about the size of a half-roll of paper towel. Two bungee cords and it’s secure.It’s ...

Craftsman Digital Torpedo Level (part #948295)

Craftsman Digital Torpedo Level (part #948295)

04-20-2011 09:05 AM by David Grimes | 5 comments »

Got this today at the local Sears store. Price was $34.99. Two (2) AAA batteries required and are not included. It comes in a nice zippered case. Warranty is one year. The unit is plastic (not necessarily fragile, but not a Sherman tank), so it will need to be treated like a multimeter, a moisture meter, a thermal leak detector, or your high dollar stud finder. Stated accuracy is +/- 0.1 degree. The unit also has bubble tubes, but after using this instrument digitally, I think mostly ...

Craftsman Automatic Power Switch

Craftsman Automatic Power Switch

04-20-2011 06:52 AM by David Grimes | 10 comments »

I just purchased this item recently, but it works exactly as described and is a problem solver for me. I searched Lumberjocks to see if there was already a review. I see many references to this product, but no review. I did not know that this product even existed until about a week ago, so maybe my review will make it easier to find for future new Lumber Jocks. I found mine for $24.99 at the local Sears store. I used a $10 off coupon and so actually paid 14.99 plus tax. This grey pl...

Reposting From My Regular Blog to Review the EX-21 Scroll Saw

Reposting From My Regular Blog to Review the EX-21 Scroll Saw

04-19-2011 12:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

After several months of waiting and anticipation, the moment finally arrived when I got a chance to really get to know and work on my new Excalibur scroll saw! Even though I had the saw delivered to the show in Saratoga Springs, there was little time for me to enjoy it and really run it through the paces. I was very busy at the show and I must say that I was only at the booth a couple of hours a day, during which time I was usually talking to people who stopped by. Both Keith and I were ...

Tame the Waterstone Mess: A Simple Solution

Tame the Waterstone Mess: A Simple Solution

Gang, This tray from McMaster (http://www.mcmaster.com/#food-service-trays/=bwr90d) will improve your life and make you a better person. A small one is $15 and a godzilla sized one is $35. Here’s how: —It is a waterproof tray whose antiskid surface will perfectly and TOTALLY immobilize a waterstone.—The low lip on the edge of the tray is lower than the top of most waterstones, so you won’t bang your blades or hands into its edges (I have Nortons and here is ...

Hilti hammer drill / with 1/2" keyed detachable chuck

Hilti hammer drill / with 1/2" keyed detachable chuck

04-17-2011 05:01 AM by devann | 9 comments »

This is a review for a drill that I’ve been using for a few years now. I will not do reviews on tools that I have not owned or new tools that I haven’t put through some serious use. I had second thoughts about posting this review, Hilti wasn’t even listed in the tools that have been reviewd in this forum. And the cost of the tool not exactly being in the range of most hobby type woodworkers I realize that many would have no use for such a tool. But I know that there are many...

Dewalt D55140 oil-free compressor

Dewalt D55140 oil-free compressor

04-16-2011 02:06 PM by phtools | 10 comments »

This compressor is fairly powerful, when it works… if you’ll notice, a lot of people have problems with this unit quitting working after a certain amount of time, and here’s the reason and the fix for those who are at all curious… There’s something wrong with the way this unit draws power, which causes a short in the circuit board. The board gets overloaded if you leave it on, and the fuse blows. No fuse means the unit stops working completely. You can replace...

Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

04-16-2011 01:02 PM by phtools | 7 comments »

I purchased this compressor as a replacement for a 26Gal 5HP husky I had. There was nothing wrong with the Husky it was simply that my space could not accommodate it. I intended to use this as a homeowner who always has a project and as someone who uses compressed air for multiple purposes. I did alot of research and narrowed it down to either the MAC5200 or the DeWalt D55146. I decided on the Makita because of the lower price and the oil lubricated pump. The reason oil lubrication was import...
