Triton 3 1/4 HP under table review

Triton 3 1/4 HP under table review

02-10-2010 12:17 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 32 comments »

Addendum to this review 10/28/2010: A problem is being solved regarding below.You should read these addendums up from the bottom.After many months I finally decided to replace the nylon rack with the new steel one triton sent me (see previous addendums). Disassembly wasn’t to bad, about an hour in all to replace the part. I’ve been using this router in my table for a long time now even with the defective fine adjustment part. I find it ideal for table use. I can’t speak for ...

Perfect for whacking things with sandpaper

Perfect for whacking things with sandpaper

02-09-2010 05:46 PM by Wiley | 6 comments »

I bought this sander several years before I got into woodworking, when I didn’t know better. I finally replaced it yesterday, and can’t even ethically put it on craigslist. Hopefully enough googling will reveal the proper incantation to banish it back to the depths of hell from whence it came. The main problem is that it does not, as sanders generally do, vibrate from side to side. Instead, it vibrates in all dimensions equally. This has three main effects: first, it very quickly ...

X-Horse ---They're BACK

X-Horse ---They're BACK

02-09-2010 04:17 AM by Scott Oldre | 5 comments »

I did a review on this indispensible tool a few months back. It appeared at the that these were unfortunately dropped from Home Depots inventory. That was a sad day even for someone that already has two of them. Well wandering through HD’s isles the other day, I found a whole stack of them. The ones I have use aluminum pillars, whereas the new ones are using heavy plastic. I doubt the difference has any effect on the sturdiness of the stand/bench but I do like the pretty alumin...

Wow what a saw!

Wow what a saw!

02-09-2010 12:29 AM by Bert304 | 31 comments »

This was my first purchase from Grizzly Industrial. So far I have no complaints. I ordered the bandsaw on Friday and picked it up at the terminal this morning. The box only had to small damages to the cardboard, only on the outer layer of cardboard. I opened the box and everything was packed very nicely and tightly in styrofoam. I had to tilt the box on its edge to get the bandsaw out, I could not lift it out. I unpacked everything and inspected all the parts and the bolts and nuts. Al...

Tried a bunch of "multi tools" before buying the sonicrafter

Tried a bunch of "multi tools" before buying the sonicrafter

02-08-2010 11:30 PM by Wade | 20 comments »

Overall this tool is a must have. The product performs all the functions that the infomercial claims and is extremely heavy duty. There a few flaws that the designers of this tool did not take into consideration with heavy use. Problem 1. The hex head bolt that is used to hold on the blades/cutters/sanders/etc… came loose a few times causing the attachment to bounce around. Second thing with the bolt was that after repeated changes of the attachments the hex head bolt and hex head wr...

Reliable, versatile trim router kit

Reliable, versatile trim router kit

02-08-2010 03:27 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 6 comments »

I’ve been using this model of trim router in a commercial cabinet shop which produces over 50 finished cabinets a week, dozens of plastic laminate countertops, and massive reception desks. These are the only trim routers we have in the shop and they get abused all week long. Several of them have been in service over 4 years without any major repairs (brush replacements and a fan here and there). I bought this kit off Ebay used for my home shop. The underscribe base is great for people w...

Affordable powerful hammer drill

Affordable powerful hammer drill

02-08-2010 03:14 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 4 comments »

This is my first review for this website so forgive me if I don’t quite come up to par (any constructive advice would be appreciated). This was my first hammer drill purchase. I’ve used a Bosch Bulldog and a Milwaukee hammer drill, which are both very impressive tools, but a little too much for me. I didn’t buy this drill for drilling block walls all day long. This is a great hammer drill to keep for DIY home improvement. I put a wire wheel in the chuck and stripped paint o...

I just found this post, curious about the General 90-200 M1 15” saw I read about in Feb. 2010 Woodshop News article about band saws. I’ve owned a 490 since 1985. I bought it knowing I’d need a sturdier, less aggravating tool than my inherited Sears band saw. From day 1 it has been the primary stationary power tool in my shop. I don’t own a table saw, I use the band saw for all cutting. Safer. I’ve been in business as a one-man shop for almost 30 years. I do some ...

an article and my review on the forbes top 10 most dangerous tools

02-07-2010 09:57 AM by BOB67CAM | 30 comments »

The Ten Most Dangerous Power Tools Forbes magazine recently published a list of some of the most dangerous power tools on the market. While we definitely are power tool advocates, we also want to promote safety on our site. These tools are not toys, and users must understand the potential harm they can do if not used properly! do not aim at what you do not plan to kill POWER NAILERS: They make short work of framing, but power nailers also send 37,000 people a year to emergency rooms acc...

Dust Deputy for Router Table

Dust Deputy for Router Table

02-07-2010 04:03 AM by dhg | 9 comments »

Routing my test piece for raised panel doors with the Dust Deputy connected to the router cabinet and fence, I was sold on this dust collector. I’d give it more stars if I could. I had gone to Onieda’s website for more information and saw how the dust swirled around, when I saw it on mine I just started laughing thinking this thing is going to work. After routing 9 raised panels and emptying the canister once, total of about 6-7 gallons of sawdustl, it was time to look into the s...
