Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

10-01-2010 07:55 PM by Dedvw | 9 comments »

Purchased this drill just over a week ago for a really good price ($88 brand new). Box came with the drill, 2 batteries, flashlight, charger and carrying case. The owners manual was not in the box but this was not really an issue, Ridgid makes it very easy to find the PDF manual on their website. The tool itself appears very well made with a good blend of plastic and metal parts. The weight of the Drill is pretty good (a little lighter then my Makita 14.4V) but is a bit top heavy making it...

First one was a dud, second one is fine.

Mind you, pnuematic nailers are honestly very simple tools as far as air tools go. The driver is simply a piston, with a simple connecting rod sort of arrangment. You would think that if a company is going to build a product that has a piston, a connecting rod, and motion, that there would be a wrist pin right? Well not in my first one. Now #2 is working great. It leaks a tiny bit of air, but that is my fault. I took the thing apart to inspect it and managed to tear one of the paper gaskets. ...

Not exactly a fine woodworking tool, but it sure does drive nails!

I have now owned mine for about 6 months, and put it through plenty of hard paces. The good, the bad, and the ugly of it… The good…Purchase price $49.99 (had a GREAT coupon)...Drives a good variety of nail sizes.Safety works very well.Reasonable magazine capacity. The bad…Uses a LOT of air. My little HF compressor cycles a LOT when I use this thing.Shortest nails this will shoot 2-3/16”, would like to shoot 2” nails with it.Limited to 28 degree nails.Lack o...

Makita 2703 Portable

Makita 2703 Portable

09-29-2010 06:51 PM by Hermando | 11 comments »

I just wanted to share one of the Makita portable table saws I own and give a review from what I think is a quality table saw and functional with the right setup. I have been reviewing a wide variety of table saws in the past so I could spend more time wood working and not working. This particular table saw is the Makita 2703, which I purchased from Craigslist for $40 and had the Makita service do a complete overhaul of power cord, power switch, bearings and brushes. This saw was pretty r...

GREAT MULTI PURPOSE SHOP TOWEL

GREAT MULTI PURPOSE SHOP TOWEL

09-29-2010 09:11 AM by Roz | 15 comments »

I want to tell my fellow LJ’s about the towels I am using in my shop. An ordering mistake at work introduced them to me. I found these towels very good for prepping a surface prior to applying a finishing or painting. These little towels are great for removing dust and debris, getting it all, leaving no residue or fiber behind. One towel will last a very long time and can be reused. I have used them for applying wiping stains and finished with good results. I have used these towels as f...

Good saw for a good price

Good saw for a good price

09-29-2010 04:00 AM by cpd011 | 2 comments »

Over the weekend I picked up a new miter saw. I had previously been using a 10 year old Delta 10” single bevel miter saw with an Irwin arbor mounted laser. No knocks against the Delta, it has erved me well but I wanted the larger crosscut capacity and a higher fence. I read every review I could find from this and other websites, and also went and kicked the tires at various stores. I decided on the masterforce because it is virtually identical to the Craftsman Professional 12” sl...

Stanley Sweetheart Low Angle Block Plane

Stanley Sweetheart Low Angle Block Plane

09-29-2010 02:52 AM by David Craig | 9 comments »

I am a newbie when it comes to hand planes. I recently purchased a low cost Stanley 9 1/2, tuned it, and outfitted it with an A2 steel iron from Lee Valley. Total cost of time and effort was in the neighborhood of 60 dollars and a couple hours of my time. I have been checking on the costs of other plane offerings, and have been reading the reviews of the Sweetheart offerings with some interest. I have been mostly disappointed to find that the re-release of the Sweethearts were mostly negative...

Vega   # D-48 Duplicator

Vega # D-48 Duplicator

09-29-2010 02:23 AM by grosa | 3 comments »

This duplicator is the best manual duplicator for the money that I have used. It comes in different lengths and different price ranges. It has a variety of different adjustments. When you buy it, It comes with the aluminum extrusion, the chain, the spoked guide wheel, the blade holder head, the cutter, two center point brackets ( for holding round turnings as a template) and it also comes with 3 different stylus.The cutter head is spring loaded and can be locked if you just want to make a str...

Episode 79 Dewalt and Ridgid Sander Comparison from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I compare and review the Dewalt 5 in random orbit sander and the Ridgid 5 in random orbit sander. Both sanders cost around $60 so they are in the same price category. I have used the Dewalt random orbit sander since may of 2008 and so far it has worked pretty good. I have used the ridgid random orbit sander for about 5 weeks and so far its been working really good.
