My DeWalt 18 Volt 4 piece Combo Kit

My DeWalt 18 Volt 4 piece Combo Kit

2371 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 3 comments »

Over the years I’ve gone through many low end mediocre battery powered drills. I think this set is going to last me a long time. When you put one of these in your hand, you can tell, just by the feel, that you’re holding a quality tool. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hammer Drill Features: Variable speed Dewalt built high-torque motor delivers 500 in-lbs. of maximum torque, 2,000 rpm & 34,000 Beats/Minute. I’ve used this drill...

Porter- Cable 423 Mag Circular Saw

Porter- Cable 423 Mag Circular Saw

2371 days ago by John Gray | 4 comments »

My old saw went to the I bind all the time not cutting well file so I went looking for a new one. I read good reviews on the saw and I was looking for light weight saw with a right hand blade drive this one fit the bill so I purchased one from Lowe’s on their handy credit card. I do not use the saw every day but have used it to cut 3/4” plywood, 1” knotty cedar, and rough sawn 1” red oak and it cuts like a dream. I would recommend it to anyone. I’ve listed th...

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

2371 days ago by John Gray | 6 comments »

This is another tool that I’ve had for about a year. It does a beautiful job jointing and it comes with 2 push pads ( Grizzly calls them safety blocks) as standard equipment. The built in mobile base is a God send in my shop as I like to have all of my large power tools on wheels, I use them outside weather permitting. It’s 4” dust chute is very efficient. There’s not to much else to say except that I would highly recommend one to anyone looking for a 6” jointer

Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw

Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw

2371 days ago by John Gray | 53 comments »

I’ve had this saw for about a year and love it. It was pretty square out of the box and the fence is really steady in contrast with earlier reviews on older models. The ability to move it on wheels is great, it comes with the wheels attached a bonus. There is a 2 1/2” dust collector hook up up under the saw which is so so, it’s hard to control the saw dust on any contractor’s saw. I have had no troubles with it and would highly recommend it.

Remington 16" Electric Chainsaw

Remington 16" Electric Chainsaw

2371 days ago by Mick | 3 comments »

I purchased one of these at a local hardware store for trimming limbs in my yard and doing rough cut of logs for the rustic furniture I build. It does have plenty of power and minimizes weight. I actually used it to cut down an entire (dead) 15ft apple tree in my yard. The apple wood is drying in my “bone yard”. The chain tension will not hold for more than a few minutes. The chain that comes with it has such a low tooth count compared to chain speed that it chews throu...

Jet AFS-1000B Air Filtration System

Jet AFS-1000B Air Filtration System

2371 days ago by Bill Hall | 9 comments »

I love this thing. My workshop is a small section in the rear of my basement. Just getting started, I was getting dust everywhere as I have a contractor type table saw. I’m working on collecting that dust at the source better, but stuff still gets in the air. My entire basement was covered with dust before I had this. I’ve had it for a few months now and I can honestly say I notice a difference. The air is cycled every so many minutes and if I leave it run for a couple hours...

Purple nitrile gloves protect your fingers, don't melt, look jazzy!

Purple nitrile gloves protect your fingers, don't melt, look jazzy!

2372 days ago by Nils | 11 comments »

I needed a clean, dust-free pair of gloves to assemble a turned kaleidescope egg I made for my wife for Valentine’s Day. I wondered where I could find a cheap pair of gloves for this purpose. I thought immediately of the drug store, where I’d gotten latex gloves before. As I was shopping, I saw these purple nitrile gloves, and though to myself, “Self, isn’t nitrile that stuff that’s impervious to oil?” I’ve had the experience with latex gloves that oi...

Balance, precision, handling, control...  Sounds like a sports car? It's a chisel!

Balance, precision, handling, control... Sounds like a sports car? It's a chisel!

2372 days ago by Tom Adamski | 20 comments »

Well, not just any chisel, a Lie-Nielson bevel edge socket chisel! Looking through the offerings at my local Woodcraft one evening, I spotted a beautiful set of chisels in a leather roll. Asking the salesman to open the case, I had a closer inspection. The feel was perfect, no uncomfortable bandings and they balance so well. The roll had 5 chisels in the set, with the smallest being 1/8”. Considering I do a considerable about of 1/8” inlay, I really liked these. I was taken aback ...

One Great Product

One Great Product

2372 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 10 comments »

I was wanting a jointer for a long time. I was looking, but most were upwards of $400, and I am not willing to fork over that kind of money, so I opted for a cheaper, but still efficient one. I saw the Delta, but it had aluminum table, and although it looked very nice, the lightness of it didn’t make me really that happy about it. I was going to get the 4 inch craftsman jointer, when I said to myself, I will grow, I will later want the bigger version, I will be mad I made the desision t...
