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...

Hey guys, This is mainly for you guys out there in the USA, but you never know. As you may know, US ball-bearing supplier VXB has been in the market for a very long time and sells all kinds of bearings to the whole world. The great thing about them is that despite being a huge company they also sell to individuals. And now comes the woodworkers’ part: for a limited time, they’re offering this 4” LS bearing for $0.99. Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...

All I wanted was quiet but recieved so much more

All I wanted was quiet but recieved so much more

01-12-2011 01:39 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 24 comments »

I’ve been wanting to replace my noisy Rigid only because it’s noisy. I wasn’t expecting all the other features. The wall mount frees up valuable floor space. The hoses are much more flexible than I’m accustom to. They feel more like rubber than plastic. They are the smaller diameter but the the main unit and the hose ends appears to be able to accept the larger (2.25” I think) hoses if you prefer. I like the conventional dust bag. It appears to be an op...

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

01-12-2011 05:48 AM by thiel | 9 comments »

NOTE:—Photos and Videos at the Bottom... scroll down!— Where I used to live, there was a so called “incredible” hardwood supplier who had a showroom of almost 800 square feet in which to display oak, cherry, poplar, and walnut. Occasionally, they’d get some additional “special” species. Oh, and EVERYTHING was S2S. Boy was I clueless! When I moved to my current town two years ago, I had a heckuva time locating a hardwood dealer. I searched on...

Porter-Cable 12v Lithium Combo Drill and Driver

01-12-2011 12:26 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 14 comments »

By no means am I an expert qualified to give a professional review of this combo pack. But as the owner of a Remodeling company and a hobbyist woodworker I wanted to give my input on the dynamic duo… First off, Guys everything you hear about “Size Matters” is a myth in this case!! When it comes to the compact power of these mini work horses, don’t let the size fool you.. After purchasing my first set, I put it straight into the mix. From the very first jobsite, t...

Milwaukee 5" 8 hole cat#6021-21

01-11-2011 02:01 AM by Dave | 15 comments »

I had burnt up my last sander and was in a pinch to get another. So I had found this sander at a box store for $80.00.The weight and balance are very good. Also the grip is rubber and a little smaller than most of the others that I picked up. I will say this, one good thing about big box store is that you can test ride a product. I do have a bad wrist and on my last project I have been doing a lot of hand planing, sawing and card scrapping. so my wrist is a little sore. This sander does have ...
