I can’t really offer a great review because this is actually the first band saw I’ve ever used, literally. After reading the reviews on this web-site I was sold on this saw, There’s one that cost about 200 dollars more that has a brake and a shopfox type base. I also took the advice and ordered a Woodslicer blade from Highland woodworking. I can’t express enough how amazing that woodslicer blade seems. The Woodslicer made me go from “This is cool, I have a nice b...

New affordable sliding mater saw

New affordable sliding mater saw

Hey True Believers, I’ve needed a new miter saw for too long now, and had actually purchased a 10” Skil from WorkShop tools. A couple weeks back I saw on their website that they had generic SLIDING miter saw for about 140.00. It was TD 10” Sliding Miter saw. Well, I’ve been trying to figure out where to put a big Radial arm saw I had (and had never used) and ended up taking the plunge with the new sliding miter instead. Since I had never opened up the box with...

Great Kit to repair my ole Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Hook & Loop pad

Great Kit to repair my ole Dewalt Random Orbital Sander Hook & Loop pad

06-14-2009 06:10 AM by Dan'um Style | 14 comments »

I’m on my 2nd Dewalt random orbital sander … ..As anyone who uses hook and loop sanders know, if the sand paper ever comes off while working ,the Velcro pad on the sander gets messed up real quick . Sandpaper will never stick right again. I’ve gone thru the process of replacing the factory replacement part four times. Three times on the oldest sander and one time on my newer piece, Not cheap... ...I found Ali-Gator-grit repair kit for 11 bucks at Lowes. It comes with...

My "Almost" Dream Table Saw

My "Almost" Dream Table Saw

06-14-2009 03:05 AM by Lenny | 37 comments »

I have been woodworking without a table saw (TS) for nearly 30 years; using a radial arm saw as the workhorse of my tools. I never had the room for a table saw when I worked out of my 8’X11’ basement shop. In 2007 I became the happy owner of a dedicated shop, attached to my garage. It is only 8’x18’ but it has an 8’ ceiling and is almost double the space I had. I plan to retire from my job of 32+ years next July and planned to use the money I will receive for my unused v...

Lithium-ion 18Volt Impact Driver/Driver Drill/Flashlight

Lithium-ion 18Volt Impact Driver/Driver Drill/Flashlight

06-14-2009 02:50 AM by Karson | 9 comments »

I bought this drill/driver for a deck for my daughter, my Ridged batteries were dying a fast death. A side note on the construction. I bought a Hitachi 18 volt drill and ratched drill at Lowes for $229.00 before I went. Model WH 18DSAL Hitachi site I charged up both batteries. Everything worked great. All joyce hangers, screws up to 3 1/2”, decking boards, facia boards stairs were attached with the two screw guns. It required an additional charge on each battry and a second charge on...

To Infinity and Beyond

To Infinity and Beyond

The 50T Infinity Combomax is the best 50 tooth combination blade I’ve tried to date. This is an extraordinarily well made blade that uses a unique ATB/R configuration that features a chamfered raker instead of the traditional flat top raker. It has very low tearout for this class of blade, and is particularly good in sheetgoods, while maintaining good ripping abilities due to it’s 12° hook. Any blade that’s designed to do multiple tasks has some inherent compromise relati...

This DW7670 is DeWalt’s 8” stacked dado blade set. It features (2) 24 tooth outside cutters, (4) 4 tooth 1/8” chippers, (1) 4T 1/16” chipper, (1) 4T 3/32” chipper, (12) steel shims, and a handy carrying case.

All the teeth are C-4 micrograin carbide, and the bore diameter will fit 5/8” arbors...

The Freud LU87R010 is a 10” 24 tooth thin kerf (TK) ripping blade that features a red “Permashield” coating for reduced friction and corrosion resistance, laser cut anti-vibration/anti-noise expansion slots, flat top ground teeth (FTG) for efficient material removal, and an aggressive 20 degree hook angle for a fast feed rate. The LU87 is the TK counterpart to the LM72R010, and is part of Freud’s “Industrial” series. Rip blades are designed to make fast ...

Vintage Craftsman 1/3 Sheet Sander

Vintage Craftsman 1/3 Sheet Sander

No longer available for purchase through Sears, this sander can still be had at yard sales, auctions, eBay, or your grandpa’s workshop. Since I totally dislike sanding as part of the woodworking experience, I have to say I love this sander. Once I established the fact that I had a stack of cutting boards that needed to be sanded and had built my downdraft table to ease my pain, my husband turned up with this sander. He held it out saying it belonged to his dad, and it was one of his ...
