Smooth Square, Great Price

Smooth Square, Great Price

05-05-2010 12:02 AM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

not much to say. good square, and can be had for a bargain price. I was using Empire combo squares (12” and 6”) since they were cheap (less than $10 each) at HD. I found them to be as precise as the next square, but the locking and the sliding of the ruler left a lot to be desired. I eventually replaced them both with Starrett equivalent which I found to be as precise, but made of heavier materials, and with higher precision in the machining which means smoother sliding action,...

Deal on Ridgid BS1400 14" Band Saw

05-02-2010 06:59 AM by Juansnapon | 13 comments »

I just picked up the Ridgid 14” Band Saw for $184, Home Depot has them on special in there lower volume stores. 20 minutes away another HD had the same drill press for $369 at a higher volume store so make sure you keep your eyes open for good deals at the HD. Once they sell out of the smaller store they will not get them back anymore so don’t miss out. Remeber HD will take competitor coupons like Harbor Fright tools 20% coupons too. Other than a little vibration in the table that can...

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...

Super customer service

Super customer service

05-01-2010 07:42 PM by lilredweldingrod | 10 comments »

I just have to rant (in a very good way) about Ridgid’s customer service. I have a 1998 Ridgid table saw, Mod. TS2412. Before I became the Proud? owner, it was involved in an accident and fell out of a moving truck. In the accident, the spacer, the piece with the two 5/8 pins that the motor mounts on was destroyed. Some one that thought they were a welder tried to make a new one. As a result, when you try to cut an angle, the motor has to rise above the CI bed. It contacts the out feed ...

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

04-29-2010 02:54 PM by spaids | 29 comments »

These blades are so dull, I couldn’t even cut my finger with these. I contacted Freud directly about it and all I received was “thats our blades thats how they come. If you don’t like it you should return them to where you bought them. We don’t get any complaints about our blades” Umm YES you do get complaints because I was complaining with him right then. The dull blades I am replacing are sharper than these brand new Freud blades and Freud has ZERO concer...

Dremel Multi-Max is made from concentrated AWESOME!

04-27-2010 04:27 PM by spaids | 25 comments »

My wife bought me this as a thank you for putting some French doors in for her. I’ve only used it a couple times and both times my jaw dropped. First use: I was installing a fan in a gas fireplace and the electric was never run for it when they built the house. The location where the power was needed was impossible to get to. My options were to remove the fireplace, run the power, and reinstall the fireplace. YUCK Or cross my fingers and try some magic. I go into the baseme...

Hi All, ‘Picked up this 734 dewalt last week at Lowes. They had just dropped the price down to $399. I know you can get it for less at other stores on line but the shippng is outrageous so…. I have used other people’s planers….and this 734 is the best yet. It is a three knife system and gives a very smooth surface but the best feature is it’s 4 post hold down on the blades. The knife also has a a lock.. I plane short boards due to the size of my shop….w...
