No more un-square squares. This one is made from solid phenolic

08-08-2009 02:14 AM by GaryK | 17 comments »

I was notified via e-mail about this square and ordered one right away. It’s a bit pricey at $70, but I will only ever need one. The first thing I did when I got it was to check it for square. It was perfect. Not much more to say in that regard.The only drawback I can see that the material isn’t steel which means that it can be damaged it you aren’t careful.The holes for your hands makes it real easy to move around and position.It’s also nice and thick so it̵...

Low price but lacking in important features

Low price but lacking in important features

08-07-2009 02:05 AM by jake | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw due to the DeWalt name, reasonable price and past experience with DeWalt power tools. While this tool is powerful enough and seems well built, it lacks features that make it’s performance only average at best. The most frustrating aspect is that it lacks a blower and the wood debris from the cut obscures the sight line/markings that you try to follow. It is surprising as my last jig saw was sold by Walmart under their own private label at the time called Quantum Pro...

powerful and heavy duty

powerful and heavy duty

08-07-2009 01:42 AM by jake | 9 comments »

This tool is heavy duty in every aspect. It cuts hardwoods like butter. I like the basic nature of the tool, no lasers etc. They often obscure the sight line by getting in the way, and I would rather clearly see myself than rely on a laser. It base plate is aluminum, but is heavy enough it doesnt flex and I’m sure it helps keep the weight down. The adjustments are straight foreward and are easily operated. The motor sounds smooth in it’s wind up and use. The cord is nice and long,...

Bosch 5412L/T4B Combo Makes The Cut

Bosch 5412L/T4B Combo Makes The Cut

08-07-2009 01:31 AM by CanuckGal | 14 comments »

It might not seem right for a person such as myself to be reviewing and rating a compound miter saw because I don’t have a lot of experience with them or many different models. But I think it’s suffice to say if a novice can buy and assemble one of these and use it within minutes of setup AND make dead on accurate cuts and miters then the saw almost speaks for itself. This is true of the Bosch 5412L 12” Sliding Dual Compound Miter Saw and Bosch T4B Gravity Rise Miter Saw ...

New Plastic Dust Deputy Arrests Dust

New Plastic Dust Deputy Arrests Dust

08-06-2009 03:18 PM by TheDane | 15 comments »

The demo at AWFS and videos online were just too convincing … I ordered the new Oneida Dust Deputy kit ($99.00 plus $10.50 S&H). It was money well spent. The ‘kit’ comes with the plastic cyclone, two buckets, lid, hardware and hoses. The cone itself is a tough, heavy plastic, and the hose connections are tapered so my ShopVac hoses fit tight and stay put. Assembly took under 5 minutes. Instead of a copper wire and washer recommended by the manufacturer for static disc...

Woodsmith Aluminum Box Joint Jig

Woodsmith Aluminum Box Joint Jig

08-05-2009 11:41 PM by CharlieD | 9 comments »

I was fairly pleased with this product and give it a 3.5 rating. . It was somewhat difficult to use and with some minor changes could be greatly improved. The DVD instructions were pretty good once you watched it several times. I found it difficult to hold the boards in place when you have a lot of cuts to make. Some type of hold down fasterner would help but also would slow the process quite a bit. What you don’t realize when you buy the jig is that you might as well and go ahea...

OK..OK…this isn’t about a new cool tool. However, sometimes it is nice to recognize the service and people behind those cool new tools. I recently placed an order with Penn State Industries online and used a gift debit card that I thought had enough on it to cover the order. Well, it didn’t and the order “bounced.” I got a very nice call and email and the Customer Service agent (Judy) worked things out for me with as courteous a tone as you could imagine. ...

StrongHold Clamps

StrongHold Clamps

08-03-2009 02:23 AM by dustbunny | 5 comments »

I accidentally posted this review under the blog section, and thought I better correct it. I was looking for a clamp that could hold a glue up of two 45 deg strips of wood to make a block. Basically two triangles glued together to make a square. All the woodworking site searches produced nothing. Then I came across these clamps on a welding website. http://www.stronghandtools.com/products/pdt_img/pgv_pic.html I ordered three of them from my local welding supply store to see how t...
