Powerful saw for carpentry work

Powerful saw for carpentry work

1965 days ago by ferstler | 6 comments »

OK, there have been lots of reviews published about this saw, both in magazine reports and on the internet. However, I have not written any of those reviews. So, here goes my shot at fame. This is a great saw, BUT it is a saw built for use by strong men with strong arms, or at least one strong arm. Why, well, its magnesium case notwithstanding, at 14 pounds it is still very heavy for a circular saw. However, what you get in return is a left-side blade that makes it easier to guide to a scr...

A good impact driver for the money

A good impact driver for the money

1965 days ago by ferstler | 6 comments »

I own two of these (one for each hand; OK, that is a joke), and you can see both in the photo. I obtained one a few years back and picked up the other a few months ago when I was feeling flush. I do not feel so bad about buying two of the things, since together they cost about the same as one such unit from any number of more upscale manufacturers. These are 18-volt jobs and they are part of the Ryobi One + battery-powered tool catalog collection. This means you can buy the driver without ...

Amazing Product

Amazing Product

I checked this out after reading mjon’s review on this. I always liked using bees’s wax paste but was willing to try the spray. So, I looked on the internet and found it. The Original Bee’s Wax. Well let me tell you I cleaned my kitchen cabinets and then waxed with the Bee’s wax and they came out great, but, the best part of this product is when you use it on glass and granite or marble tops. Last year I renovated our bathroom and put in shower doors but the glass gets...

Fine planer for the money

Fine planer for the money

1966 days ago by ferstler | 14 comments »

Ryobi has recently replaced this discontinued AP1300 model with the AP1301. The new version has two deficiencies, compared to the older-design unit reviewed here. First, the new unit does not have a cutter lock. OK, with good planers a cutter lock may not be necessary, but with a budget model it is not a bad idea. One look at the operation of the lock on the AP1300 shows that it is a very good way, indeed, to make sure that the cutter assembly is not going to shift upward or downward durin...

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

1966 days ago by ferstler | 5 comments »

I read a review of another Ryobi table saw elsewhere on this site and the owner was not happy with it at all. He basically criticized the small size of the saw and the lack of quality in the fence. Well, we have to remember that saws of that kind are low-priced items, built for use in tight spaces and for owners (or woodworking dabblers) on strict budgets. The reviewed saw was different from the BTS20 reviewed here, but it is possible that the fences for each unit were the same, or at leas...

Nice little powered hand planer

Nice little powered hand planer

1972 days ago by ferstler | 0 comments »

I could not find the GMC (Global Machinery Corporation) brand listed on this group’s company name list, so I just selected the next best company, Global Tooling. Heck, maybe they are the same company. Most Chinese-made tools from this Austrailian company are budget items in the extreme, being on the same, or sometimes an even lower, level as Black and Decker or Chicago Tools. Some work not all that well, and others work just fine. This is one of the just-fine versions, if only bec...

A straightforward device with only minor deficiencies

A straightforward device with only minor deficiencies

1972 days ago by ferstler | 3 comments »

This unit is discontinued, but it might be available used or even may still be in stock in some Lowe’s stores here and there. I have been using hand routers for some time, but I did decide that an inverted table-type unit would be handy. There are plenty of table bases available out there, and they will handle any router you might care to install. This device is different, in that the motor is built in. Unpack the thing, do a bit of assembly work, and it is ready to go. Technically, it is ...
