6" Benchtop Jointer

6" Benchtop Jointer

01-08-2009 05:42 AM by rwyoung | 15 comments »

I decided that I would like to have a 6” jointer for my garage shop. The combination of limited working space and the size of my expected projects pointed me to a benchtop jointer. Depending on what review you read, most of the models in this class are limited to 3 ft or 4 ft workpieces. That length limitation was not an issue for me as most of my projects in the queue are cabinets and small furniture. I received the unit in good order and the packaging was quite well done with tw...

Makita LXT Reciprocating Saw - BJR182

Makita LXT Reciprocating Saw - BJR182

01-08-2009 12:45 AM by toolman | 3 comments »

We used this saw the other day and it is a great saw. I have always been a fan of the Sawzall, but this has sold me. Obviously it doesn’t have the power the V28 Sawzall has, but I love the blade change system. When the blade is in place, it stays in place, even if it binds. If you want to take it out, it will come out very easy. The best thing is you can change the blade with one hand. The locking system will lock into place and allow you to insert the blade easy. Besides the blade s...

Very happy but with a bit of drama of course

Very happy but with a bit of drama of course

Saw Overview:Well, I decided it was time to purchase a new tablesaw. After quite a bit of research, budgeting, and window shopping I decided to go with the Steel City granite top saw. Since I only have 120 VAC power, I went with the 1.75 HP version. I have called Steel City several time and received excellent customer service as you will see as this review continues. Anyway, I asked Steel City if there were any structural differences between the 1.75 and 3 HP models and was told that they are...

Very impressive 1/2 inch driver.

Very impressive 1/2 inch driver.

01-05-2009 07:02 PM by spaids | 10 comments »

I got this drill for Christmas and have been very impressed with everything about it. It does what you expect a drill to do, it has the torque you need. Where it goes beyond that is its light weight and power use. I used this drill extensively for several hours on a single battery. When I finally used up the first battery I was initially afraid that the drill was broken. I thought it was broken because it was behaving as though it had full strength right up to its last drop of battery li...

Review of the Makita Drill/Driver BHP452

Review of the Makita Drill/Driver BHP452

01-05-2009 04:58 PM by toolman | 3 comments »

We just got done testing this Makita drill and love it. Anyone who has worked with or owned one of these drills knows what we are talking about. Lots of power provided by the 3.0amp Lithium Ion battery, which also helps reduce the weight. We ran it trhough some test and took some video, quit impressive. Overall this drill has great balance and lots of power

Santa Brought Me  A Landshark

Santa Brought Me A Landshark

Or, more accurately a "Shark Guard" by LeeWay Workshop. Installation I’ve only had the opportunity to install this today, so I haven’t really had a chance to fully put it through its paces. However, so far I am impressed. The improvised packaging the unit arrived in was demonstrative of its small shop origins; the actual contents, however, were not. Installation was straightforward using the directions provided on the site. They warned that some owners of my saw (Craftsman 2...

Grizzly Band Saw G0513x2

Just purchased the go513×2, picked it up myself at the Muncy store as I only live an hour away, be prepared as it comes almost fully assembled, bring a lot of rope, the guys in the loading dock very helpful, as they laid it down on it’s spleen for me. Also purchased the shop fox mobile base, and listened to a few friends, and purchased the timberwolf blades.I have owned a lot of band saws, as I do a lot of re-sawing, but I have to admit, this one put a smile on my face. Cutting ...

New worksharp for old chisels

New worksharp for old chisels

01-04-2009 02:48 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 18 comments »

In reviving my shop after many years I got a workshart 3000. I used to sharpen my chisels by hand on sandpaper and stones and got marginal results because you really have to work at it to get them the way you want. This worksharp really makes it easy. I mean really easy. Old dull chipped chisels took maybe 15 minutes each and I’ll be able to touch them up in a few seconds anytime I want to now.The unit is not cheap but not as expensive as some units. I got mine from Sears for $189 but y...

i got this digital protractor for christmas and since i got it i have used it for everything! to adjust my squares, set up tools, check glue ups! it is just a great little tool. so much for burning on the table saw for crosscuts. i found that my good square was 89.9 and thats why i was getting burning. once adjusting it to 90 with the wixey no burning at all! its just wonderful and it helps a lot too. also there are magnets on it that help in tool setup because it attracts to the blade and mi...
