Ridgid and Dewalt 5 in Random Orbit Sander Review

09-27-2010 02:11 PM by kosta | 10 comments »

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.

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

I am very pleased with the 2hp HF. I caught it on sale for $151.99. I could not be any happier with the big difference in suction power. This was well worth the price. Knowing what I know now, the jet unit was a waste of my time and money. This unit is twice as good! God bless

Smooth, Thin Cuts

Smooth, Thin Cuts

09-23-2010 10:32 PM by tnstaafl | 7 comments »

I just installed this Micro-Kerf 40 blade from Total Saw Solutions on my SawStop Contractor’s Saw, and I must say I’m impressed. Smooth, glue-ready cuts, with a kerf as thin as a dime. The blade comes with stabilizer discs built in, starts and runs with no blade noise. It went through a bunch of 4/4 oak very easily, which stands to reason since the kerf is so thin. The stabilizer discs do limit the depth of cut a little, but for precision cutting of quality hardwoods – I l...

Veritas Micro-Adjust Wheel Marking GaugeYes I have seen that there are already a review this tool! But!!! I do not all agree in the judgment: I think it’s a excellent marking tool, I think it’s so delicate, and well made, that it makes any LJ want to touch it!It’s precise.It’s cutting a sharp spur.Its a pleasure to hold in your hand. What I do agree, are that the micro adjustment are not super useful, but I actually used it to fine tune the other day for my do...

Poor quality and even worse costomer service

Poor quality and even worse costomer service

09-22-2010 06:34 PM by samiam | 26 comments »

Got this unit home and uncrated after it took 3 weeks to get from Laguna. When I ordered it the unit was on the floor ready to ship and when it was all said and done it hadn’t cleared customs yet. First thing that I noticed is that the plug on the end of the power cord was only rated for 15 amps. This unit has a 4hp motor so I thought that was underrated. It didn’t matter to me though I had already planned to cut the end off and put one on that matched my set-up with locking plugs. It ...
