Powerful Disk Sander

Powerful Disk Sander

10-09-2009 05:57 PM by FatScratch | 9 comments »

I received this disk sander about 9 months ago. I really didn’t think it was a necessary addition to my small hobbyist shop, but it was a gift. The buyer thought it would be a necessity for my hobby and I didn’t have the heart to exchange it. It has come in handy many times since I got it. The sander was nicely packaged in a square box which was very difficult to get my hands around, coupled with the fact that this thing is very heavy. This sander weighs in at about 100lbs. It t...

Good and fast

Good and fast

10-06-2009 04:05 PM by DannyBoy | 4 comments »

I picked up the 5-piece set of these from Lowes yesterday to drill holes to run wires through floor joists. I’ll be comparing these to the last ones I had which came in a catch-all bit kit I got for Christmas years ago (they sucked). The bits bored fast. I mean really fast. I’m not sure what difference in the design that makes them bore so quickly, but it definitely made the difference. I used the 5/8” to bore through the joists at a slight angle (since I didn’t...

Premium Saws Indeed

10-06-2009 04:40 AM by taylodr | 8 comments »

So when I first saw the Veritas Dovetail saw and it’s price – I wanted it. I endlessly searched everywhere on the internet for reviews and came up with just a few. Everywhere said “They get great reviews, but I’m not sure…” We I was sold, I wanted to try it out. I never bought it. I said if they had more than one, a matched set or something, that I would get one. Well, they do now. I figured for a little more than the price of one nice doveta...

MASTERFORCE 18" Scroll Saw with Rotary Attachment

10-06-2009 04:27 AM by Raymond | 12 comments »

The other day I went to use my trusty Wilton Scroll Saw, went to turn it on and nothing…After checking the usual. Yes it was plugged iin. My nose told me something was wrong. There was that smell we all know, the smell of a burnt controller board. And yes it was toast. So off to Menards to get a replacement one. When what do I see but this Masterforce 18” Scroll Saw. So after poking and prodding it I load up my cart and off to home I go. The saw seams built very rugged it’s ...

Economical Brad Nailer

Economical Brad Nailer

10-05-2009 07:02 PM by nmkidd | 12 comments »

Bostich BT200k 18 Gauge Pneumatic Brad Nailer. The unit came with a case, instructions and warranty. The housing is magnesium and is very lite weight (listed at 6 lbs). It is also oil free, which I find to be a plus. There is an adjustable depth control and a sequential trip mechanism. Recommended air pressure is 70psi to 120 psi. It will shoot brads from 5/8” to 2”. This is a factory reconditioned item and comes with a 1 year warranty. Cost was $34.99 including shipping from ...

Excellent budget blade!

Excellent budget blade!

10-05-2009 02:33 PM by Mike Gager | 28 comments »

I just recently bought this blade after reading some of the reviews on the home depot website. I am very satisfied with it and think its an excellent choice for someone on a budget wanting a nice cutting blade. I havent used any of the high end blades such as the forrest woodworker2 but i would be mighty surprised if they cut that much better then this blade does. I tried it on red oak, pine, douglas fir, MDF, and particle board melamine and it left a super smooth cut in all of them with no t...

Excellent low cost Hand planes

Excellent low cost Hand planes

10-05-2009 02:03 PM by Tony | 13 comments »

I have just completed this review on a Chinese imported hand plane. This hand plane looks remarkably like the WoodRiver Hand planes supplied by WoodCraft, so I thought that you might like to read the review I wrote about a similar hand plane over here in Finland. The report is in pdf format which you can down load it if you wish to read the full report. Summary: A well engineered hand plane, which has a positive feel to it as soon as you pick it up. The weight of the plane is a definit...

Grizzly G9849 Magnetic Base/Dial Indicator Combo

Grizzly G9849 Magnetic Base/Dial Indicator Combo

10-04-2009 04:58 AM by ChunkyC | 10 comments »

I purchased one of these to fine tune my tools, mostly my table saw and miter saw. Pros:Cost. This costs less than $22 from Amazon. Comes with a plastic storage case. (TIP: Remember how it’s packed BEFORE you remove it for the first time. It’s a bear getting the lid to close if you miss this) There are two arms that you can adjust to get the dial indicator into about any position. A very strong magnet with an on off switch. Cons:There are two arms that you can adj...

I said to my wife “I think I am going to buy a new table saw” She said “why”..... you have one already. I said a present to myself for retiring out of the Navy with 22 years. She said go ahead just make sure you get the one you want. “WHAT”...... Well here she is. Yup, this is all I got done today Just putting it together. Hmm… a review on putting it together. Easy, you get this black folder manual looks like something you get with a new car. Anyw...
