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

06-13-2009 07:50 PM by knotscott | 7 comments »

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...

The DeWalt Stacked Bargain...

The DeWalt Stacked Bargain...

06-13-2009 04:41 PM by knotscott | 5 comments »

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. The DW7670 expands to a maximum cutting width of 29/32”, and has a nearly infinite number of possible smaller widths by using the various shim and chipper sizes. 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

06-11-2009 04:33 AM by dustbunny | 6 comments »

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 ...

Butter!

Butter!

06-09-2009 10:37 PM by Emeralds | 3 comments »

This like most every Bosch tool I’ve had the privilege to use this is a quality machine. This tool is tough! It sports a perfectly balanced grip, a non-scratch shoe cover, a silky smooth variable speed trigger suitable for even the finest scrolling application, the most easily adjustable bevel angle base I’ve ever seen, a deep cycle long running NCAD, the standard battery used by virtually all tool companies but in the Bosch Blue Core format which promises future upgrade compatibility. Wit...

All in all I like their new product, it saves time and material, and clean up couldn’t be easier. for more information I wrote a longer review on my blog @ http://sleepydogwoodworking.blogspot.com/ I only wish they add more colors and maybe a line of indoor stain to the line. Joey

Delta 6in Jointer with Stand (Shopmaster)

Delta 6in Jointer with Stand (Shopmaster)

06-08-2009 04:35 AM by Tim_456 | 20 comments »

To begin this review I have to add that this is my first jointer ever. I’ve never used one before so all of my comments are based on being a novice. Also, one peculiar thing is that this jointer is not advertised on Delta’s website and other than seeing it in the Rockler advertisement I can’t find any proof of it’s existence;) The jointer is a 6 in model with a metal stand that needs to be assembled. The bed could be a bit longer but for me it works very well. S...

Great Saw, but Limitations

Great Saw, but Limitations

06-07-2009 05:06 AM by John | 14 comments »

Since there is no Review posted on this site for this saw, I’ll be the first. The first thing someone should understand is, it’s NOT a Cabinet Saw. If you can live with the limitations of a Contractor Saw, it’s actually a great saw. My first Powermatic 64A held up great for about 10 years until I sold it. You can see it in my pictures of my old workshop. I only sold it cause I needed the money and employment was pretty scarce at the time. There are 6 main points that I will ...

Empire Combination Square - it is straight.

Empire Combination Square - it is straight.

06-07-2009 03:38 AM by jond | 9 comments »

When I was searching for an inexpensive combination square, I was unimpressed by the standard BORG-type plastic squares and was unable to justify quite a bit more for the Starrett model. I was intrigued by the discussion on here about the Empire squares in one review and decided to buy one. I bought the 16” version from Sears ($16 currently). I found it to be straight and square according to the “flip it and try to match your line” test, at least down to the width of my 0.7 ...
