Now you guys and gals know me, I am a bang for the buck kind of guy, and in order to separate my cheap fingers from those bucks, your product or service better offer some real tangible additional bang… Enter the OneWay Manufacturing Wolverine jig. I initially got this because I had no idea that PSI had a cheaper clone, and after a couple of frustrating plywood copies later, I opted for the steel of the Wolverine to avoid the flexing that was messing up my angles. To call the Wolve...

Awesome product, exactly as advertised

Awesome product, exactly as advertised

My jointer plane is a vintage Stanley #7 SweetHeart that I bought off of eBay for $60. I spent a day truing up the sole and frog, along with another 3 or so days working on the blade and chipbreaker. I’ve used it like that for a few months, sharpening the blade about once a week as needed. It always worked “okay”, but I felt like it could be better. This was the first and only jointer plane I’ve ever owned. So I didn’t really have anything to compare it to as ...

Ridgid DP1550 Drill Press

Ridgid DP1550 Drill Press

Hi all, I just got back from Home Depot a few hours ago with my new drill press. Woo-Hoo! I chose this drill press based on the weight of the reviews that I’ve read on this website and elsewhere. I just brought it home a few hours ago and just completed setting it up and testing it. Out of the box, the reviews hold true about the accuracy of the parts fitting together, fit and finish, ease of assembly, and usability. After seating the chuck, I found the runout is about .003&#...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Simple Green PRO HD excells at cleaning saw blades

Simple Green PRO HD excells at cleaning saw blades

12-06-2010 09:46 PM by pintodeluxe | 16 comments »

I heard that soaking carbide tipped blades in simple green can leach carbide from the metal. I emailed simple green and a rep confirmed that the standard simple green should not be used to soak carbide tipped blades. He recommended two other simple green products that have no such problem: 1. Simple Green Pro HD 2. Simple Green Aircraft parts cleaner I found the simple green Pro HD at my local Home Depot. It is the purple stuff and is sold in a 1 gallon concentrate for around $13. I...

01. shippingI ordered this from reconditionedsales.comPackaging was pretty normal, like the standard for this type of tool. Huge box to say the least. Ordered on a Friday and received the saw on a Tuesday morning with regular UPS shipping. 02. hardware listEverything was in the box. Box looked like it was new. This was however a reconditioned miter saw, but I could not tell it at all. 03. assemblingEasy, not much to do. 04. tuning and adjustingAdjusted the insert throat on each s...

Garbage bits

Garbage bits

12-06-2010 03:56 AM by Drew | 20 comments »

I bought these bits as I was walking out the door of Lowe’s, remembering I was out. Unfortunately Lowe’s doesn’t carry Irwin, so I bought these. I broke 4 of them the first hour of my work day. These bits are ok in a cordless drill, but a joke in an impact. 2 stars.Pros, they fit nice. Cons, worthless in an impact. Stick with Irwin or DeWalt.

Kawasaki Titanium Coated 99 piece set of drill bits

Kawasaki Titanium Coated 99 piece set of drill bits

Hello LJs, I saw this Kawasaki Titanium Coated 99 piece set of drill bits a Costco for $19.99. Kawasaki? Drill bits? I knew they made motorcycles, but drill bits? Then I thought they must be good drills if Kawasaki made them. After all, my nephew rode their bikes to a national championship in Hound n’ Hare cross country desert racing on The Green Team ;-)) But I was still a bit leery. Costco doesn’t sell garbage, but $19.99 for 99 drill bits? There are a lot of small replacement f...

eBay Customer Protection greatly improved in last 5 yrs

eBay Customer Protection greatly improved in last 5 yrs

12-04-2010 08:44 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 18 comments »

I made the mistake of not looking closely enough at an old Stanley 39 plough plane. The title said “Plane” and “wood cutter”. It looked just another old well used plane that would need bit of cleaning up but would make a user. A lot of finish still on it and a little rust. I had seen a lot of them selling for $25-40. The seller had 100% positive feed back, so I didn’t spend a lot of time studying the pictures looking for a scam or what they were trying to pull over on someone. The blad...

Makita RP2301FC 3-1/4 HP Plunge Router (Variable Speed)

I just got this router. So I’ll likely update info as I get more familiar. I noticed there are not many reviews for this new model from Makita so we need one on LJ. Amazon offered a really low sale price on this for Black Friday. It was $100 less than the sale price here in Canada. Being 10 minutes from Detroit, I had it shipped there and even got free shipping from Amazon. To my horror, Amazon didn’t pack it. They shipped the router in its own box – unsealed. I guess UPS took ...
